Beautiful Week


  • Places
  • Food
  • Noteworthy

Last week was simply fantastic. Girlfriend and her brother came to JB for a couple of days (22-26 December). After so long, finally got to see them again. *grins* It was very nice and thanks to them, we had a wonderful time.

Was very excited to see them when picked them up at Larkin Sentral bus station. Immediately the next morning we headed for some of Cathay Laksa and the "famous" Beef Noodles near the newly-built customs complex. After that we headed off to shop for some stuffs at City Square.

Decided to have some Baskin Robbins ice-cream at the newly-opened outlet. Turns out to be that the ice-creams there are larger in size compared to the ones we normally have at other outlets. Thanks to girlfriend for the beautiful treat though. =D

The next few days we went out eating and trying out some food. Fortuntely, we got to taste the Nasi Lemak in Mana Lagi. After so so many years of not being able to taste the food there, I can still say that it is THE BEST Nasi Lemak in Malaysia!! =D and now, girlfriend has got a chance to taste it too. =DD

On the 25th we went to Kukup fishing village to see the "kelong" (fishing village on stilts) and to have some real nice seafood. Anyways, some of you might know that I have an allergy towards crabs. So I finally mustered up the courage to have some crab meat. Thanks to girlfriend and mum for helping me peel some pieces (bahagia XD), it went well and my tongue didn't even itch. I wonder if that is a sign that I'm healed of that. *scratches head*

The trip was quite fun 'cause we got to spend a lot of time together and took a whole load of photographs, which I might be posting soon. But we sure slept up to really late evening after getting back from Kukup, and had a late dinner.

But night time was one of the fun nights. Since girlfriend was going back the next day, we decided we would have some fun in Danga Bay on the last night.

Me, girlfriend, Jason (her bro) and Joel (my bro) went there by car. Burned a few coins on the arcade shooting hoops. There came a point when the time was up but for some unexplainable reason, the balls just kept coming. So we just kept on shooting until we got fed up of it. Wanted to play some fusball but the machine was out of order. Ended up playing Photo Hunt instead.

This is where it gets crazy...

We rented a tandem bike after digesting our dinner and decided to do something crazy. I took the wheel (adding to the danger deliberately!). We rode our way over humps and bumps, braving the traffic from each side of the road.

  1. Into the carpark we went, overtaking another tandem bike
  2. Past the "NO ENTRY" sign, leading into the pedestrian areas
  3. Into the extreme park (via crossing over some railway tracks when the train was coming!)
  4. Riding out and overtaking that same unfortunate bike XD
  5. At this point, Joel (my bro) suggested we ride through and break a no entry tape denying access to the area sealed off for the new year countdown party.
  6. We rode in and due to lack of power, we got stuck.
  7. Struggling to break through, security personnel was arriving.
  8. Broke through!!
  9. Kena halau balik... =P

Anyway this trip was a really wonderful one and one that I will cherish for life. Hopefully there will be more of that to come in years and years. =D Oh, and Happy New Year everyone!!

Finally the day is tomorrow. Finally the driving instructor is going to come and help me complete the remaining few hours of my driving classes. Hopefully they will come to an end after a few days.

Last week the instructor was supposed to come to pick me up, since he already picked up my documents and renewed my "L" license days before. Somehow or rather, it just didn't work out. Something cropped up, and he didn't make it. Hopefully, he will finally be able to make it and put an end to my long wait.

Until then I am still trying to complete some tasks to help out the kids' church in their presentation to find some background music for the scenes.

Christmas Time! (well, almost!)

Been at home a lot lately and been doing some preparations for Christmas in church. I realized this holidays are flying by really fast, but I guess it's ok. Anyway I might be getting some nice Christmas presents this holidays. =D

One thing so far is that the letter from my former driving school has just arrived today and my new agent has finally come to collect it. This means there will FINALLY be a conclusion to my driving lessons (fyi, I am still taking my driving license. Huhu). So I guess this is the first Christmas present for me. *grins*

Hopefully I will be getting more pressies from God though. Perhaps a pleasant surprise when my results come out later?? *fingers crossed*

Double Tag: Wedding

Been tagged by two ppl the same way. Haha. John and Wan Sin. Wedding.

How old are you?

Are you single?
I'm currently in a relationship.

Hmmm... not sure though. I just know when I get stable financially.

Do you think you'll be marrying the person you are with now?
That's up to God. If God willing, yeah. I don't see why not. =D

If not, who do you want to marry?
Haiyah... No need think about this kinda things la.

Do you want a garden/beach or a traditional wedding?
Hmmm... Garden party/ Beach or Traditional doesn't matter. But I just know it's gotta be the best. =D

Your ideal motive?
You mean, "motif".. Well, it has gotta be a fancy theme full of surprises (for the bride, of course!) and something that gives of a dream-like atmosphere. =D

Probably to Paris or Venice. Oh and somewhere my wife can shop for the things she always wanted to, and if I have enough money, *fingers crossed* to perhaps have a stay at Burj Al Arab, Dubai for a night at least.

How many guests do you think you'll invite?
Depends la. The more the merrier.

Do you want an extravagant wedding or a simple wedding?
Depends on the financial status.

Do you want the traditional vows or something you'd make up on your own?
I don't know, either way it could be romantic though. New vows are creative and could be amazing but there is also something deep about traditional vows =D

How many layers of cake do you want?
Depends on what seems best at the time.

Do you prefer having your reception at a hotel or a simple place?
Hotel, of course. There is only one wedding in one lifetime. 

When do you want to get married, morning or evening?
Night is better I guess, then can start the new day with a new beginning together the next morning though =D

You'd rather have your reception outdoors or indoors?
Huhu. I thought I said hotel.

Do you like a grand entrance for your groom?
I am the groom. I don't think I need an entrance kua.

Name the song/tune you'd like to play at your wedding?
Anything my wife and I love. But it's gotta be a really cool and romantic song. 

Are you a morning person or a night person?
Hmmm. Does this relate to a wedding?

Do you want a solemn ceremony or a light one?
Hurm, I think I'll prefer a solemn ceremony with all the church traditions and all but at the beach/garden.. haha.. Hope it doesn't rain la..

Describe your ideal husband/wife?
R.E.N.A.E. =P

Do you prefer fine dining or just the normal spoon & fork/knife?
Need to be so high class ke? No need la.. normal will do. But make sure it is proper that's all. =)

Champagne or red wine?
Haven't tasted champagne yet, so I can't say.

Honeymoon right after the wedding or days after the wedding?
Right away!! XD

Money or household items?
A good mix of both, but if items better still not redundant.

Who will pay for the bills?
Me. But then if my wife wanna help then can also.

Are you ready for married life?
Nope. If not I will be married now already.

Do you think you will still be a virgin until you get married?
That is exclusively for the person I marry.

Will you always be true to your wife/husband?
*nods head* or else no point marry. Just be single if wanna play around.

How many kids would you like to have?
Perhaps 2 will be perfect. A boy and a girl.

A new house for a newly wed or an old one?
Depends what we can afford.

What kind of cuisine would you like for your wedding?
Dunno. I love a wide range of food =D so depends on the theme of the wedding.

Will you record your honeymoon in a CD or DVD?
Nowdays mana ade org pakai CD already? Space too small la. I think by next time need blu-ray dy.

Whose wedding plans would you like to know next?
1. Leslielinda
2. Henry Yew
3. Amy Goh
4. William One
5. Raymond Tie

Blessed Semester

Another one is over and this, I must say is one of the more blessed ones. This one was filled with tonnes and tonnes of God's abundant grace and mercy. It hasn't been perfect, but somehow it ended well. *grins*

Haven't been able to go online for a long time due to exams and I just got back to JB not long ago though. Spent some time in Penang with gf and celebrated our 1st year together. =D Thanks for the wonderful present baby!

Anyway, I'm going to be spending the holidays doing some things that I haven't been able to settle during the semester, for example, finishing my driving license T.T and hopefully gf can come down to JB though. *fingers crossed*

The kids =D


There's a one-in-million chance of finding this =DDD
