Woo trip to KL was amazing.
*like it bery bery muchie....

Arrived in KL at 3.30am, and waited for 15 mins for my mom and sis to pick me up in front of KFC. No's better off with me waiting.

Day 1 - Thursday:
08.45: Wake up, shower, get ready, morning greeting
09.30: Breakfast at hotel *I don't like breakfast...yet I ate a lottt
10.15: Return to room *it's so far from the lobby and dining hall....they have 2 towers ok!!
10.30: Head to Red Box Karaoke at Sungei Wang with my mom, my lil auntie and hubby and my sis
11.00: Sing our lungs out.... *woo haa wee hoo
11.45: Another bowl of Soto for lunch and a glass of Lime Plum juice
14.15: Leave Red Box and return to hotel to pick up my aunt's luggages [mom's friend drives]. They are heading to Penang.
14.45: In the midst of traffic jam..OMG!! and it's a 3-pm coach to Penang..we ARE LATE!!
14.50: Panic..panic..
15.10: Arrive at Pudu Raya. Alight at the roadside...OH NO...
15.15: Run inside the station...rush rush rush..
Chee....the coach has not even opened the door -__-'
but GOOD, so my aunt didn't have to buy a new pair of tix to Penang.
Bye-bye...See you...
15.30: Back in the car...discuss where to go..
15.35: Cancel our visit to mom's friend's house and go to Lot Ten instead to have our hair cut.
15.45: expensive wor...RM 180 and RM 165 for a senior hair-stylist *hoho it's Tony n Guys
16.00: Walk..walk..walk...try try try, taste taste taste and shop some snack and sotong at a mall *tak tahu apa lar nama itu mall...muahaha
16.25: Enter a hair saloon and have our hair-cuts for RM60 each *Cin cai lar...I don't mind spending more for a change of hair-style
17.45: It's raining. Ready to go home...and tired...when suddenly the mobile rang.
"Ow...wanna go to eat Curry Fish? " --> it's raining..and imagine a bowl of hot curry fish..
18.30: There we go...enjoying our yummy addictive Curry Fish...woo hoo
19.40: Return to room sweet room *wahhh watch MTV some more...and some funny Taiwan programmes...miss those times lar. Ste: Lucky ya coz Taiwan got lots of funny programmes, unlike Spore's boring Singlish programmes lol

* It's too long to type like the above schedule...and I'm too lazy to do so too*

My KL trip...
Wanna go homeeee....arghhh *shriekkk

Day 2 - Friday:
After breakfast, we went to Times Square which is situated below our hotel *muahaha*. Too bad, this time round, nothing really suits us. After a few hours, we called it off and headed for lunch. Menu of the day: Bak Kut Teh.

We ate at the infamous 'restaurant' where many celebs visit too. It's not a nice clean building, it's not of good service, but the taste justifies everything. Hen hao chi...VERY delicious...slurp. Since I hardly have this kind of meal in Singapore, I didn't miss a chance to satisfy my crave for food, GOOD FOOD to be precise.

Again, it rained soon after we departed from the restaurant and headed to recce my mom's friend's new house. To cut story short, we went to another mall right after we failed to recce the house, Midvalley Megamall. A new uZap by Osim, a cone of gelato, two pair of earrings made our day before we returned to the hotel and prepared for our night programmes *yeah..this is a cool trip*.

A steamboat dinner started our night session. With a choice of soup and porridge both on the pan, this is a heaven for food-lovers. We continued to paint the town red by going to Soda Club at Damansara *the night-haven of KL, aside from Bangsar*. The first two-hour was a torture as they played 70s songs and not RnB or Hip Hop. But, as time passed and the night went wilder, they put up RnB, Hip Hop and dance music *yey*. My sis was the star of the night. She went on stage after being urged and danced like a bee. My mom's friend's hubby could only shake his head in disbelief...and said "Dad is is here". rock sis!

Finally, off to sleep at 2.45 am. What a tiring day..

Day 3 - Saturday:
Wandering at Sungei Wang, shopped a lil, ate like my stomach was about to burst and got ready for Today's highlight.

MTV Voting Party in Zouk KL, Msia.
Met my old hi-skul friends there. Got to know a couple of Msian @ers.
The music was cool enough to get you in a dance mood.

And I was sabo-ed by my 'colleague'. There was a HAIER booth, one of the sponsors, whereby you could win a 32" LCD TV *Alamak...* The challenge was that you have to read a script and act like a VJ, and do something in order to win it. The judges would then select TOP 5 contestants and these contestants have to go on-stage and do more challenges. I was forced to start the ball by this 'colleague' and impulsively, I grabbed my old hi-skul friend, Hendra, who was standing next to me.

After being briefed and asked to fill the form... and a long discussion on "what to do heh?"..I ran away haha and forced my sis to participate in return. Hendra has done his part by then... - took off his shirt *muahaha* -. Nophie did a muscle dance in the end. Theirs were approved directly by the judges.

At 9pm, the programme started with Adam's peformance. I [or rather "WE"] agreeed that one of the dancers was definitely cuter and deserved the applaud *evil huh? But he really has the X-factor. VJ Denise, as always, is so friendly and cute *cute as in cute cute..funny lar. Continued with more stage games, and performances and artist on stage.

So the awaited programme was the HAIER challenge. Undoubtedly, Hendra and Nophie got into the final *plok..plok..plok. Really salute their courage *I am proud of you guys hehe. After introduction and acted like a real VJ on-stage * they have to then pick:
1. 20 push-ups in 20 seconds
2. Sing one of Ahli Fiqir's songs -the nominee -
3. Belly-dancing *OH..C'mon, we know what to expect right?

In the end...Hendra won the 32" LCD TV *Hoo Haa Yeahh!! where's my treat?

Moreover, I guess, my friends won lotsa goodie bags and had an enjoyable time there ^.*

KL Rawks...hohoho definitely a haven for food, shop and entertainment. Muackzz...

Overall, everything went smoothly and awesome *pinching the new layer of fat on my belly* except my departure from KL - Johor by Air Asia. My 45-min flight was delayed [or "re-timed" as they put it] TWICE: 7.45 pm to 8 pm, then to 8.50 pm. So, I arrived at Johor around 9.50 pm and rushed for my luggage, and I still have to go to the Msia and Spore custom immigrations. Finally, safely reached my room sweet room at 12 midnite. *sigh...tired tired tired

Habis liburan and jalan-jalan malah semakin mellow. HOMESICK!!

Pengen pulang...pulang...pulang...HOMESICK!!!

I don't care about anything else....I wanna be home....HOMESICK!!!!

Ujan..ujan lagi...ujan lagi ujan lagi...

Dinginnya nusuk.

Males..males ngapa2in. Males mikir, males pusink, males bikin idup lebi ribet.
Males nyari orang yg bisa nemenin gue bermalas2 ria *haha*.

Kayanya mood 'galaw' emang lagi ON neh... Hidup trend!!

BODO AH!! Pokoke gue malessss.....semales-malesnya...
Ga ada kerjaan di office as for now... or maybe gue yg males buat kerja, jadi ya ude isenk2 isi "What breed of dog you are?" *hehehe maksa yeey*
And the answer is...
I am a collie
*what is collie??? HUGE question mark.. but it rhymes with cool, so I'll assume I am cool hahaha*

No bones about it, you're a loyal, nurturing Collie. A sensitive breed, you're always approachable and very in tune with others' feelings — just like Lassie! Because of your empathetic nature, you tend to be the group psychologist to your circle of friends. Your faithful, easygoing, steadfast personality makes you a wonderful confidant; people love to come to you with their troubles. Bottom line? You're a star at interpersonal relationships and have a knack for making new friends and acquaintances wherever you go. After all, what's a Collie without a flock to look after? Since you're so giving, your buddies might not realize that you need them just as much as they need you, so make sure not to neglect yours truly. Everyone deserves some "me" time. Woof!

Some people would run, some would hide, some would stay and try to solve it, some would ask for guidance and advices, some would pretend it never happened, some would create a whole new situation for him/herself. People deal with 'situations' differently.

And things...are easier to say than done.

A friend of mine questioned on the situation where friendship cannot return to its initial condition. And so wise advices were shared and debated upon. Still, no satisfying answers to this 'kind' of issue. Afterall, feeling is something you can't decide on or worse to force into. Yet, it can shatter a life-long friendship...or maybe a few years of friendship.

Yah, it's depressing...and disappointing.

Why we, HUMAN, seem to make things far more complicated than it should be.
Why we make life miserable... and later we preach upon it.

It's easy to say: "I don't want things to change," or "I hope our friendship remains".
But how many times have we run away and hide?
How many times we put on a bold thick mask to protect ourselves?
and How many times we lied that we're OK.

We think the others won't be hurt and that we are the ONES who hurt the most. Maybe you're right, maybe we're right, and's never right.

Time heals...
I guess...

we change... to heal it.

Mabuhay !!!

I am back from AIESEC conference in Philippines.

The conference was SUPERBLY UNBELIEVABLE for the 3 delegates that we started to have post-conference withdrawal symptom since we first left the resort *sigh*.

This is my very first international conference and I gladly announced that I had a marvellous time there. We went to Manila, Cebu and Bohol. We even visited the 3 airports in Manila *hehe*.

The facilitators are AWESOME and full of enthusiasm [Some of them are from AIESEC International..woo hoo]. They are very friendly, approachable and always willing to help us out. They are simply friends.
The Organizing Committee [OC] was COOL. Despite some lack of coordination and miscommunication that took place, the OC was so dedicated and committed that they even went the extra mile to make our stay enjoyable and memorable * touched*.
The Filipino/a [or Pinoy as how they called] are warm and friendly that I feel like I've known them for years.
The delegates ROCK!!!

The resort is nice.
The food is great *never in Singapore I ate so much for breakfast haha*
The beach is irresistible.
The parties are crazy.

However, what important is what we've learnt there. We have an intense session from morning till evening. From a simple session of @ identity, a serious Balance Scorecard [Critical Success Factors, Key Performance Indicators, etc] and @2010, to a more comprehensive breakdown of @XP session [intensive knowledge-sharing on each and every stages]. So much information was shared and digestion does take time. Thanks that I managed to get sober most of the time [a.k.a not sleeping hihi].

Apart from that, of course we have so much fun too.
- We have the infamous Skulling [drinking competition] *woo hoo....too bad, only 3 delegates and I can't drink haha so we made a collaboration between Singapore-Malaysia-Thailand.*

- We also have Amazing Race where we were grouped with other delegates and were challenged to do something in each and every post, e.g: dancing, drinking, cat-walking, eating 'Belut' [the Phil's special half-egg half-chicken], etc. We won a 2nd place in this game *yeyyy*

- @IESEC Idol was hilarious. It was a karaoke night where each country's representative must perform. And the challenge is: Most of the songs are oldies that I have no idea what songs are those *muahaha....*. And so I ended up singing 'Sometimes' by Britney Spears for the 1st round. Mimicking the lyrics, I managed to get to the 2nd round. This time round, we would pick a number from a basket and we have no idea what song would it be. Luckily, I got the old-version of 'Uptown Girl' hahaha (at least I still know the song). In the end, unexpectedly, we won the 1st prize...woo hooo... When the host announced the winner, we were busy taking stupid pictures *lol*.

- Safari Night was a social session where we played 'Water Bomb'. So, we have to come out with a strategy in a short period of time. Not to mention that the group was made of different nationalities who speak different mother languages. It's FUN FUN FUN!!

- And not to forget....the cannot-be-missed Ms AP session. Out of the 2 male delegates that were there...we strived to excel and maintain our championship haha CONGRATS to CY!! *pizz* Singapore is now really famous for winning the competition at least 2years in a row. HOHOHO...

- We also gave a crash course on 'Introduction to Singlish -SL 101 class' during country sharing. This was very warm-welcomed by everyone as they have a glimpse on our unique language. Subsequently, they start to learn how to use and incorporate certain words into the conversation. For instance: Fulamak [alamak to the extreme], Wah Piang [Wah Lau without the Lau, Look look See See, Die Die...etc]

So....This conference really make my life livelier...

Keep the spirit burning...

ps: Just bought myself a Panasonic VS7 handphone...can anyone tell me how to upload MP3 files?
pps: ticket to KL is super expensive...and they are sold out too :(
