Stories and Thoughts
November 30, 2008
Anyway, we went to A Yat Abalone restaurant in Avenue K for dim sum breakfast. Frankly speaking, I didn't really expect the dim sum to be good as dim sum isn't their specialty by looking at the restaurant's name itself. However, it turned out to be so good that dim sum was fantastic and fresh with good services given by the waitress. Hence, I couldn't help but wonder whether thing normally turns out better if we less expecting it to be? There were times where I had very bad disappointments when I put too much expectation on something that ended with disasters. But a friend of mine used to tell me, life without expectation is like a sea without wave...we ain't go anywhere.
Anyhow, the breakfast cost us a bomb, but it was priceless to be together with someone we love.
We hopped over to KLCC after the breakfast for some foot exercises. There's a gigantic nicely decorated Christmas tree at the Center Court of KLCC, which has attracted huge amount of tourists for photography. And I did take some photos for sure. This is the biggest Christmas tree I've seen so far for this year. Do you know anywhere with bigger Christmas tree?
Finally I've got a full collection of Madagascar headgears. I’ve been gone through mountains and rivers to get the last 2 headgears. The stories started with Alex that on the last selling day of the headgear (26 Nov), I went for lunch with colleague at nearby McD purposely to get it. But the journey ended up with disappointment that the headgear was sold out. It is fine I was thinking as I will go PJ at the end of the day that I can try my luck again.
So we went to McD in SS2 after dinner but yet another disappointment happened that it was sold out as well. Damn, is it really that tough to get this Alex? With such a sorrow that I probably wouldn’t have a full collections, I suddenly saw someone look-alike Mr. Anton. Therefore I dropped him a call to verify it but ended up it was another mistake. I shared with him about my poor situation that he said will try to get it for me around his area, and he really did get it. Really thankful to Mr. Anton for his help, or else I couldn't have such a camwhoring opportunity with these Madagascar headgears again...Hehe.

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. :)

Anyway, that was really kind-hearted of her to bring the bird back. The bird looked so calm that one of his leg was broken. My team mate planned to bring him for medical check-up. She is such a lovely lady I was thinking. The funny thing was that they left a note on top of the box during lunch time that reads "DO NOT OPEN!! INJURED BIRD INSIDE", which I've made a good laugh on it.
Considering that the bird might need some loves, and since I have lots to offer...please accept a kiss from this little brother.

Marty, the funny zebra in Madagascar. In the first movie, Marty was the one who suggested them to go back to the wild that city wasn't their real home. A real silly him to come out with such idea but I do admire him a lot. How many of us really dare to make such dramatic changes and willing to bear all the consequences? Being in the place that you hardly know whether you can survive is definitely a huge challenge. Would you take such challenges in your life?

Who is the next generation of James Bond?
1) He has sexy eyes, just like his father does.
2) He enjoys being naked too.
3) He doesn't like alcoholic drinks.
The answer is:
He might be too old (58 yrs old) as the son of James Bond. Perhaps father?

Before our stomach was able to digest the lunch taken, we went to Izzi for dinner where we've ordered quite a lot of food that cost us RM60++. I wasn’t felt so good during the dinner as I could felt a minor sore within my throat, which I normally ignore it until it gets worse.
9 Nov 2008: As expected, my sore throat is getting worse after a night of sleep. On top of that, I’m having flu and cough. Ah...after so many frequent but short visits of my best friend (flu), I think he's planning to stay longer this time around. Anyway, I went to a nearby Jusco with family for some groceries shopping and saw some Christmas decorations around the mall. Even though I'm not Christian, I do like these kind of Christmas decorations very much especially the Christmas tree...love the colors.
I and a group of my friends have an annual tradition to go for a dinner together during Christmas Eve, which had never failed for the past few years. As far as I'm remembered, 2005 and 2006 were at The Ship (Uptown) while last year was at Tony Romas (The Curve). The dinner normally cost us a bomb but we're trying to keep this tradition every year and hopefully for years to come. It's always not easy to get some friends that we could get along very well with and I'm very glad that I'm having few of them.
P/S: By the time writing this blog entry, I was stuffing my running nose with some tissue papers so that I wouldn't wet the floor. Hopefully after a nice sleep, it will get better.

After taken shower, I went for dinner with dad and sister at McD. It has been so long since the last time we had fast food together as my dad isn't a fast food person. The childish me bought a Madagascar headgear (It's Melman until 12th Nov) for RM5.90 and had a wonderful self-enjoyable moment with it (Meg called this camwhoring..hehe).

And I noticed that I don't have any photo taken together with her alone :(

My lovely nephew and niece were around when I came back home after the haircut. Therefore, I just took a quick dinner and snapped some candid shots with them. My nephew is always that energetic and playful and his sister is following in his footsteps :). Guess I won't be able to handle both of them together in the near future.

Well, never ever ask when would be my turn as this could be the toughest question that I’ve never thought of. Sometimes, I just think that I’m not the marriage type of person…I’m just too used to be single.
As I was one of the chosen “Heng Tai (Brothers)”, I woke up at 6am as I've to reach the groom’s house in Kota Kemuning at 7:30am for some preparations and breakfast. Pink was the theme where all of us have to dress in “PINK” (I felt like a pink panther). At 8:30am sharp, we drove off from his house to USJ to pick up the bride. Couldn’t avoid some games prepared by those sisters that involved some push up, tasty food and drink, singing etc. Generally, it wasn’t so tough but fun. Thanks Angie and Lai for their kindness of not gave us a tough time. Back to groom’s house for some tea-drinking ceremony before we called off for the day at around 2pm.
While on my way back home, I received a SMS from Meg asking for dinner at Sunway Pyramid. I accepted her invitation where I joined her and Mr. Lee for dinner at Italiannes Sunway Pyramid right after I went back home for shower. Always enjoy their company.
However, it’s kind of bothering me on the real purpose of wedding dinner nowadays. Would it be a sharing of joy and happiness? Or is it just a ceremony to show the engagement? And does it really necessary?
Anyway, I’m truly wishing YF and Eunice a happily ever after married life. You really made it my buddy. :)
Due to the smooth traffic, we reached Lake Garden 5 minutes before 7am. However, guess it wasn’t early enough that the nearest car park was already full. This gave us no choice but to go for 2nd nearest car park where we have to walk for around 1km before reaching the starting point. Perhaps we were kind of too early that the crowd wasn’t there yet. While waiting for some other friend to reach, we took our breakfast as banana and mineral water were provided. Apparently, the place started to fill up with fellow participants at 8am++. The host of the event was Yasmin Yusoff where she has given some speech and led the warm up exercise before the run started at 9:15am.
It was a fun walk and run of 3.5km where I’ve started with walk for the first few hundred meters due to heavy human traffic. It took me less than 30 minutes to finish the run before I could enjoy some free food again where I’ve taken some muffins, curry puff, and Milo this time around. I felt good every time I finished a run that I could feel myself a few kilograms lighter. Unfortunately, my group of friends is so into food that they’ll normally go for heavy meal after the run. It takes less than an hour to wash away all the effort, perhaps gaining more than that. Maybe I shouldn’t join them for food next time around, should I? But good food, how could I resist it?
