Well i hate this template. Changed it because the old one apparently had problems with the comments link. Don't know why, and i don't know how to fix it. I can probably just tweak some things in the html a bit, but unfortunately i don't know how to do that also. So ma fan. Sigh.

This is actually quite a backdated post. Wrote it quite some time ago, but just never got round to finish it.

Mic and i were supposed to attend a halloween party in ucsi a few weeks back. But... just as we arrived at the entrance, Con broke the news that something happened and they were forced to cancel the party. There was a moment of awkward silence, then i went on asking if he was kidding. Apparently not! Most of us thought it was some Halloween prank they were trying to play on us. So it was cancelled. Our excitement over the past few days/weeks has evaporated (more like Con's excitement; it was just eh for me haha). Thank goodness we didn't bother to dress too elaborately otherwise everything would have gone to waste.

This is the only pic the three of us took together. It's kinda nice really. But i didn't look nice. Explains the face.

Since we were already out the few of us decided to walk to the cafe nearby to have dinner. This is then followed by mamak with Con and Mic. Although the get-together was rather short we kept bursting into tucks of laughter and seriously, i haven't laughed so much in a long time. Yes, life pretty much sucked these days yada yada.

Just last week i was complaining how much i wish i am already in Australia studying. But hanging out with these people just make me don't want to leave anymore. I don't wanna leave anymore. . . And the other day my brother was trying to estimate how long it would take for his torrent to finish downloading. Since it has been going at about 1%/day i said it'll probably take a hundred days. He then said "a hundred? you also won't be here already by then" It was only then that i come to realise that 18th Jan is looming closer now. Nooo......

By the bye, the party got cancelled because... dot dot. There was a... dot dot. I'm not sure if i can tell? Ok there was a fire. A fire wth. Imagine a fire in imu. Haha.

Come Sunday Yx and i decided to pay the Seremban folks a visit. The whole thing was a pleasant getaway especially from all the housework i've been forced to do lately *whine whine* and it was also nice to finally meet up with Yx and Meg. Went to the movies in the afternoon, and it was the first time ever i've been to the cinema clad in very short shorts. Was freezing like crazy but luckily i had a jacket in my car. It was really nice of Kaj and De Jun to show us around after that. Visited a few houses, even invaded Mei Ann's study group, stayed the night and we left the next morning.

Jul 08: Melaka Trip

Finally. A proper proper post. I realised that all it takes to get myself to blog is to publish an emo post, which will get me all gung ho to write the next happy post so as to conceal the previous pathetic one. Haha. And Min's idea of linking my blog beautifully on his page really did give a great boost. You know, so touched. Aww. Haha.

Melaka trip with the g10s - although we had only one full day to spend, the trip couldn't be more accomplished. Took me a while to decide on how to blog about this. What with having two hundred over pictures in that Melaka folder on my desktop. Spent some time agonizing on whether to talk more about us, or about the food.

Well just to list down the food we had on that first day: curry laksa, curry puff, coconut puff, chicken rice ball, cendol, nyonya zhang, pork satay, durian cendol, portugese seafood, more more tea, satay celup, durian


We kicked start the day with curry laksa. It was sort of late breakfast. Of which we proceeded to lunch immediately after. No, i meant brunch. Oh well.

Oh god my face looks so fat. Belum makan also fat already.

This is us posing next to the Melaka Drain (Sungai Melaka). It wasn't very pleasant to the eyes.

Our walk soon lead us to the Dutch Square where the Stadthuys (sted-house, insists Yx) building was located. Apart from indulging in our extreme food escapade we did a lot of exercise too! Trudged up St. Pauls Hill to check out some historical sites.

More sampat pictures...

Debster and her pseudo-helmet.

Linking arms in front of the A Farmosa Fort? Sia-soi nya... I wonder whose brilliant idea was it.

This is the one food that deserves a picture on its own (sorry non halal haha). But everybody knows Debbi HATES pork. So when Debbi says this pork satay is good, it really is DAMN good.

We retired to Yx's very cosy home after the durian cendol at Tan Kim Hock's, watched a Disney movie, then headed out again to the Portugese Settlement for dinner.

Since all of us were debbitised and couldn't decide on what to order, table no. 1 became a reference for us. Think we had like 2 or 3 same dishes. Haha.

Our next stop was Jonker's Street. We're kinda lucky that they were having pasar malam that night too.

Guess who's who.

Our main objective that night was to drop by Geographer's Cafe - the place where one of the scene in er some canto movie was filmed. The girls were quite excited to try their signature more-more cha, which apparently was also featured in the movie. However when our drinks finally came and Mei Ann took a sip, i saw her face becoming more crumpled than an apple crumble. Then we each took a sip. Everyone became apple crumbles. We were sorely disappointed. In the end we had to play a game of ha?-meh ah? and the loser is forced to take a huge sip because finishing the drink became such a torture to everyone.

Everybody loves this picture. I fail to see why.

The place actually has pretty good decor. And since upstairs was fairly empty we did a lot of camwhoring around.

Can't stop laughing everytime i see this pic. Haha.

Now you see why?

Our last stop that night was for satay celup, which was also fantastic. Even though we tried to limit our portions at every restaurant we went to, we ended up rolling down to the car with our very satisfied tummies. The first sentence that came out of everyone the moment we got in our room was 'need to pang sai'. Haha.

Later that night came a very much anticipated surprise. Haha. Seriously, even as i was bathing i could hear you guys whispering in the backyard :)

I didn't expect the durian though. Oh a point to remember. If you want to use fruits as birthday cakes, never choose papayas (mok gua) or watermelons (xai gua) or any fruits that ends with -gua. Because gua = die. Suey la!

There was the obligatory cake (durian) feeding ceremony after that and we had fun drinking water from the durian husk (which apparently eliminates durian breath, says Mei Ann). Yes i'm not posting any pictures because i look horrible. Just had my bath before that remember? My hair was all over and i was wearing my ugly sleeping clothes. Even my mum says i look like hantoo. Wuuu...

We woke up pretty early the next day just to get a place in the very famous fish ball shop. Personally i thought it was just ok. Liked the duck noodles more. We ended our makan trip with nyonya food, which was for lunch and headed back to kl thereafter.

Couldn't thank Yx more for being a wonderful host, especially for driving us around :) Even now, typing this entry is enough to make me fly over to Melaka and gorge myself silly of all the satays, dumplings, cendols......

One of the very few group pics.
