UpNorth Road Trip

I crashed my bf’s residence clique to malaysia for a 3days 2night road trip. It was fun and I had so much great food there. I was rather useless there as I can’t help to share the burden of the driver and I cant speak malay/know the routes tho I’m malaysian. LOL. I just enjoy only. HAHHA!

WE COULDNT FIND THE SHOP I RESEARCHED ONLINE BEFORE COMING, so we anyhow drive to some beach at Port Dickson (Teluk Kemang beach). Luckily, we managed to find a ulu corner with a small shop. err… correction, its not even a shop. It’s jus a corner with an Indian Auntie there with watersports facilities on shore. Because it’s a ulu corner, the Auntie had no business and hahah, we bargain prices! So we are super lucky to play Banana Boat and Jet Ski at super affordable prices. Banana Boat at RM10/pax (10mins) and Jet Ski RM30/pax (15mins). FIRST TIME TRYING JET SKI AND IT’S SO MUCH FUN!!! THRILLING EXPERIENCE.

We’re all busy playing so no photos taken! Plus we didn’t bring cameras out cos none of us has waterproof cams. Don’t ever dare to bring iPhone around.

Dinner at some random restaurant-REALLY SPICY TOMYUM

Day #2 – Genting-Klang-KL-PD (18th Dec 2012)

It was not in our itinerary to go Genting, we are just being random! So we did not prepare for the cold weather up there as well! We were in t-shirts, shorts and slippers. Luckily I brought my cardigan along, so we grab whatever jackets we have and go!!!! Such random plans are really fun and exciting tho! HAHA. Joke!

We were all excited about the cool weather up in Genting but we were not fortunate. It rained just after we happily bought our outdoor theme park pass. So we went back indoor to hide from rain.

Last Stop before back to JB – NADEJE

Very Very Nice Crepe Cake. One of the Road Trip mates introduced this cake shop and she said it’s very famous and everyone who pass by Melaka will definitely visit this before going back. Now, I know why. hahah! I love the cream, not very filling and the combinations of crepe and cream is so nice! Not very cheap tho, RM9/slice.

Post-Exam Celebrations♥

It’s been almost the same for post-exam celebrations for me every year. After the last paper, I would go eat with either my course mates, bests or my bf. Lastly, back home to catch up on dramas! the last thing I would do is sleep till next day’s afternoon!

This semester has been really stressful for me as usual, as I had 2 major paper on the same day the subsequent paper on the next day. Basically, 3 papers in less than 48 hrs. The stress level is tremendous that my migraine just came back to haunt me again. Of course, I have to hang on, I do not want to take any MC as I want a less taxing year 4 since I will have FYP to busy with. So glad that I hanged on, an achievement made 😀

I’m really looking forward to this holidays as there is 1 malaysia road trip (came back le) and 1 taiwan trip in Jan 2013.Though I hate myself for being so lazy after exams that im not cleaning up my room. hahah. *heck*

There’s actually a long list of to-do for me to complete, however, I’m just too lazy to doing some of the stuffs. Luckily, I managed to send out the christmas cards! So proud of myself^^ so glad that ‘giving’ others provides me with joy & happiness. Really thank whoever has made me felt that way.

Below are pictures of what I’ve done over past weeks! ♥really enjoying my holidays…

Medz + Antoinette

Just 2 days ago, I went to Medz for my uni’s clique 21st birthday celebration dinner. Just like Marche, Medz has Spanish/Turkish/British/Italy Cuisines to choose from. I’ve never been to Marche so I couldn’t say which is nicer but I heard Medz is cheaper! Besides, there’s student price still going on. Mon-fri, 2-5pm, all going at 50%! *not sure when it’s valid till* Go now when the offer it’s still valid! Go there and have desert as high tea would also worth every cent!

I like their light ornaments.

We had Pizza – Ham & Pineapple ($14). Not bad! I like the thin crispy crust of it and the tomato sauce is just nice to my liking; not too sour.

I had the Escargot Aioli ($14)!

Its not too bad as I like the carbonara sauce that comes with it but the meat not so tasty. I preferred the jap seasoned kind.

We shared this Chicken & Bacon Skewer ($6.50). This is nice! hehe… there’s a few more variety like salmon, squid and some other fish.

My other frens had seafood and chicken paella, it was not bad too!

We shared the crispy crepe too! It wasn’t that crispy and it’s rather costly to have it at $5.90.

One of my fren had cured Salmon Rosti ($9)! *cheaper than Mrache* It’s not very very delicious but still edible(: haha… I’m picky.

Then, we moved on to our next stop for DESERT’S TIME! We went to the Antoinette @ mandarin gallery. It’s a very small outlet but we went near their closing time so it wasn’t crowded at all.

It’s closing soon so we can only order whatever is on display; left some cakes &  macarons. Couldn’t decide on the flavors of the macaroons so we ordered 1 of each flavor that is available! Sounds crazy, isn’t it? That’s total 12 macarons and it’s ain’t cheap! Yesh, which we tried all their flavors! Luckily, we had 6 people to share! It’s good to have a group of people as we can order more flavors and get to try every single flavor.

Tahiti, Chloe, Brittany, Praline, Pistachio, Rose, Violette, Charlotte, Passion, Grand Cru, Sesame & Antoinette.

they’re so pretty & colourful! We couldn’t remember the flavors and we try to guess while eating! I LOVE THE RED ONE (Charlotte) but dislike the green (Pistachio) —> way too sweet.

Anw, I love the restaurant, very cozy and its beautifully decorated in the theme of classy vintage.

Hope to visit Antoinette again for macarons!

Music, part of everybody’s life

Been listening to music while studying, while traveling on train, while bored but i’m always lazy to update my music library. Since it’s holiday & I’m so free…been catching up on recent popular music videos on youtube while searching for new songs to learn on my uke! These are the music videos that I really like, some are youtube singers who sang very well, even better than the original singers!

Currently mesmerised in this song… “Safe and Sound” Taylor Swift ft. The Civil Wars (Duet Cover w Bo the Girl)

Originally Talyor Swift ♥ Taylor Swift “Safe & Sound” Official Music Video ft. The Civil Wars

The ukulele version is quite hard to learn as I cant a tutorial version for the ideal chords I wanted. But, most importantly get to enjoy the nice songs first!!!

Some other niceee songs!

Payphone– Its a live under the music contect called ‘The Voices’

This is rather old but if you do catch ‘The Voices’, you will know this The Voice of America – Crazy Live ,featuring Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine & Blake.

music has been really an indispensable part of my life

(Past) 21st Birthday- Apr,May,Jun’11

My birthday, 29th April, always falls during exam periods since primary schools. Besides, as we (or rather myself) placed more emphasis on studies, I never really celebrate my birthday. Especially when I enter uni, I totally did not celebrate my birthday on the actual day! thus, my 21st is no exception. I couldn’t hold any party and didn’t had the time to plan as well. But, I have to say I still enjoyed my 21st as all my family and friends held belated birthday celebrations for me! I’m so grateful for their presence who are always there to shower their love for me. Just so blessed ♥

This is a precious gift from mommy! She went few shops to hunt the right key pendent for me cos I’m so picky! really so happy to receive this…*beams*

My sec sch buddies knew I’m having exams soon so they asked me out earlier to celebrate and we had a feast! IT WAS SUPER EXAGGERATING FEAST!

*shall let the pictures convince you!*

Received ECLAT D’ARPEGE perfume by Lanvin which I like it alot!

another sweet bunch who surprised me before my actual bd!

And MORE after my papers!!!

With my forever sexy sis and ro! (din snap alot of photos cos I guess we’re busy eating!)

2nd last!

These are my JC cca clique! and also my musical clique whre we plan to learn guitar and ukulele…! 2 are missing tho >.<

A simple gathering whre friends sit down tgt to enjoy good food and company is one of the best birthday present too ;D Really feel blessed with all the friends’ well wishes and company. If families are Gold, then friends are diamonds!♥

I want a Happy 2011!

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2011(:

If you haven’t  realise, It’s just a month away to Lunar New Year! So excited about Lunar New Year as I can get ANG BAO^^ Though most of the red packets will be in RM, it’s better than nothing.

I doubt I will have a shopping spree this year due to the serious lack of funds and savings. Had spent my savings on gatherings and 21st birthday gifts. I really think I should save more and i  shall not buy any clothes for NY.

 

AND… In 2011, I hope can be a BETTER ME(:

1. better self-dicipline

2. better temper

3. better family

4. better academic results

5. better girlfriend

6. better daughter too

7. better friends to all

Just hope EVERYTHING is BETTER.

hehe… am I asking too much?

This Year I’m turning 21 too! I felt so old out of a sudden…

I felt rather stressed too; I’m responsible for my own self entirely. I may have to start living like an adult with very minimal financial backing from parents.

Besides, I’m spending more now. Hanging out with friends need money, frens’ bd need money, go dating need money, go shopping need money. haha… so, It’s good to start to plan for more cash inflow resources. I’m still working on it though.

For now, I’m teaching at tuition centre and part-time beginner manicurist. But i’m earning peanuts salary! How?

I need to do braces. But I guess I will give it up for now. *sobs*

Other than that, I’m hoping a BETTER ME for this GREAT 2011(:

I want to enjoy being 21!

Shall not shun any difficulties and embrace any challenge

Loving♥December

Who doesn’t Love December?

Despite my exam period in dec, I’m enjoying the post-exam DEC HOLIDAYS(:

24th Dec: CHRISTMAS’ EVE

I went over to YouLong’s hse to have a mini Christmas Party! Guests includes his two sisters, his bro-in-law, Alan, JY, Chris and his gf, Jason Wah and Amy and Yi Ming. Though I’m not very close with them but I don’t feel very awkward and I like having small gatherings with friends too! (I will definitely invite my friends to my hse, IF AND ONLY my hse is tidy enough.) The girls played Monopoly Deal and guys played Football on PSIII. After few rounds, some went on to play mahjong!

I really wanted to learn mahjong! cos I feel so lousy when everybody can play mahjong and I cant):

25th Dec: MERRY CHRISTMAS! a season of giving..

it’s a saturday, so i went to help out at my dad’s stall in the morning till afternoon! Went home nap and OUT in the evening to YouLong’s army clique for BBQ! Though, It was raining, BBQ went on under HDB. =p It was really nice to have that BBQ, food is nice, friends are humorous, weather is cold! It really feels like its winter christmas.

26th Dec: BOXING DAY!

Its a day of Goodwill. Did nothing special. Went to help out at my dad’s stall as usual, went home and enjoy the free time to myself(:

27th Dec: KOREAN BUFFET LUNCH!

Went out for Korean Buffet Lunch @ ARIRANG, BUGIS with my uni friends. It was a nice outing with them; yummy food and variety of food. LOVES KIMCHI MOST! they offer really nice BEEF (my fave meat!), MUSSELS (i’m a sucker for seafood!) and MACKEREL FISH!

28th Dec: BELATED CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION

Had Belated Christmas celebration with ‘AH DIAO’, my JC CO’s clique! We had 4 hrs of KTV! (I CANT SING WELL *grumps*)

Then, gift exchanges and Tabooo… Gift exchange is fun and I like the gift I received!

HAPPY 2011!
