3D2N Pusing/Ipoh Trip

21 Nov 2008: I worked from home today as I knew that I have to drive off from home at 4pm. I was the driver of this trip accompanied by 3 other passengers. We started our journey to the North at around 5pm from Kota Damansara and reached Pusing at around 8pm with a stop in between for toilet and snacks. After several calls with the groom and some wrong turnings around Ipoh, we finally reached Pusing. We waited by the road side where groom drove out to guide us to his house. Lovely and quiet housing area it was. Bachelor night was nice with a lot of relatives (Well, really a LOT) and good food but most importantly was the company itself. Groom has rented a double-storey house nearby specifically for us, which was a very clean and comfortable house.

22 Nov 2008: Woke up at 9am for simple breakfast at groom's house. Since they didn't serve coffee, we drove out for another round of drink and some morning look-around. The town was totally different from the night before, with a lot stalls and coffee shops operating at daytime. Started our journey to bride's house at 11am where it took us almost 4o minutes of drive. As usual, played some games prepared that weren't tough enough for us, I should say. As we supposed to follow the groom back to his house, but we didn't that we drove to Ipoh old town for white coffee and chee cheong fun. I just love the food in Ipoh. Will definitely come back again someday.

Went back to Pusing at 4pm and had some rest before drove out to the restaurant at 6:30pm. Reached the restaurant at 7pm and found out that most of the guests were there. Seems that people in small town has better punctuality than those living in city. I was very hungry, but still I've taken a opportunity to snap some photos around. Dinner officially started at 8pm and the foods served were simple but tasted very good.

It was a wedding reception that supposingly groom should've got drunk, but he didn't. Hence, we proceeded with a 2nd round of drink at groom's house after dinner until 2am. All of us were happy finally as we’ve finished all 11 bottles of brandy and seeing a drunken groom.

23 Nov 2008: Woke up pretty late (9am) as we stayed until pretty late the night before. We went to Ipoh town for their famous dim sum breakfast and apparently Ipoh bean sprouts/chicken an hour later after dim sum. Drove back to KL with a heavy stomach and reached home at 3pm.

Basically, it was a tiring but happy 3D2N trip. I really enjoyed the company of those close friends as we could rarely get a time for outing all-together. Besides, we’ve got to know some new friends who are so fantastic and playful. Hope to catch up with them again someday in KL.

Anyhow, how was your weekend? Hope you had a wonderful weekend. :)

[SK]: Those photos taken with groom/bride were at groom's camera. That's why couldn't show it here. :)

You know what? You looked more handsum than the groom, hope he doesn't read my comments. Pusing used to be famous for freshest fresh water fish and prawns. Ages & forgotten until you reminded me. So where is the next wedding?

K|E|E|N|Y|E|E said...

It was the 1st time for me to Pusing. Didn't know or been to this place previously. A small very town with friendly neighbourhood. Reminded me of the old serdang maybe 20++ years back. And what a beautiful compliment from you. The groom was one of the hottest guy in our university last time. Next wedding...next month in KL...2 of them. :(

JC said...

K|E|E|N|Y|E|E said...

JC: Great to have you visited my blog. We can always exchange and share our creativity juice on photo editing.

[SK] said...

hmmm, so does that mean your own camera is only for your own camwhoring purpose only?? hahaha :p

K|E|E|N|Y|E|E said...

[SK]: Haha, now you're getting to know me better. Keep this only for yourself, ok.

ernloy said...

[SK] said...

K|E|E|N|Y|E|E said...

[SK]: Private photos are only for private viewing of course. We couldn't have another Edison case, could we?

sbanboy said...

Wow looks like you had a great time. I had a great time in Singapore not even my broken car air cond could stop the fun ..hehe

Camwhoring yourself ?? If you want .. we can go for a photo session one day and you can be my model :)

K|E|E|N|Y|E|E said...

sbanboy: Yeah, I had a great time in Ipoh. But I really couldn't imagine driving without aircond, that's gonna be HOT. Ah, so sweet of you to ask me for model, thanks. But I don't think I'm a good poser in front of other people..kinda camera shy. Hehe.

JC said...

Thought you have a cbox to leave some messages.

Anyways, yea, I think it's kinda cool. I mean, yea, perhaps you can teach me more about photo editing.

K|E|E|N|Y|E|E said...

JC: Still considering whether to put the cbox. About the photo editing, I truly think you're pretty good on that by looking at the photo on your blog. Nice job.

JC said...

Thanks. But all I do is just edit off the pimples and scars, eyebag, play with the brightness and contrast setting, then add blog link. That's all. We shall learn from each other sharing ideas and whatnot.

I think you should create a cbox. Easier. LOL. Unless you like/don't mind people spamming your comment area. =D

sbanboy said...
