Happy Birthday Everyone!!!
Hello!!!

I'm back from the long hiatus.Today is 7th day of cny = Yan Yat~ Everyone's birthday=)

So how did your chinese new year went? Mine was great actually this year! Had time for family and friends equally shared.

On the 30th night, as usual, big dinner at grandma's place and then i followed my uncle and cousins to watch some fireworks near turf club. Really dangerous as it's very near to the crowd and when it explode it felt as if the sparks will burn my hair. It's really that near!

My cousin told me last year some accident happened while they burn the fireworks. Apparently, the box toppled and the fireworks started to shoot horizontally. And it hit one fella's leg, and of course kena burn, and my cousin told me can even see the bone cos the flesh is gone o_O i'm like Ewww... but i know it's true because that cousin was also injured a little bit. So, boys and girls, becareful when playing with fire(works) !!


And then we proceed to our yearly ritual of visiting the temple-temple's sekalian in Penang. 7 temple in total..by the time the trip finished, i was dead tired..damn it..

Lesson for today:
According to tradition, we have to visit odd numbers of temple when we make our rounds else it will be bad luck!


Something i learn from previous experience is to bring a google with you if you can.Haaahaa, else, you will be crying your eyes out by the 2nd temple.The smokes from the jossticks are so scary and the amount of people that throngs the temples.. Wooo.... And also as usual, beggars all over the places.

There's like small stalls selling birds, i think its dove infront of the temple. It's the first time i see this kind of stalls in penang, normally i just watch it on tvb, haha. anyway, i don't see the point of catching the birds flying around and then caged up for awhile and then setting them free again. I mean, they are free in the first already right = . =

According the Kuan Yin temple, this year those under the year of tiger and snake is not so good. There's actually 2 more but i canot remember d.. That's the bad thing bout not blogging immediately..heheeh

First day was spent hanging out with the family at grands place again and movie at Gurney with them again. House of Mahjong was the choice because we tot it will give us some cny mood. Chinese new year must watch some stupid chinese movie only can feel like cny. hEhehe

Second day also bout the same, but went Queensbay instead to watch Norbit. It was good !! very recommendable lor!! So so funny!! Another good movie would be Protege. Some gruesome scene but over all good. I feel the china actress did the best job. At night spent playing cards with family at home.

3 full days with the family and then its 3rd day of chinese new year already!! Every year i anticipate this day because me and friends will go over to this other friends house for reunion. Normally we would book the whole day for this reunion. Sometimes or rather most of the time i only get to meet some friends on that day only for the whole year.

The day starts at 2pm and then played card till dinner time. It was great because i get to meet up with my dears =) It's been so long since i've seen them. So many things to catch up on but the only thing we did was play card for the whole day....

Until about dinner time, we started to take photos when some were asking me how come i wasn't snapping away yet..hehe

The usual trademark one ler, see who can cover whose face in the photo -___- then wats the point of taking photos if all we see is hands infront of your face..hehe..but that's just how they are...

And then we had the group photo although some of them had already left home. Notice, sweeheng is also there! Woohoo... Yes, i very lambat at sensing his existence when i was there =.=

I love this photo alot!!

After dinner, balik rumah ...
Why i go home so early?? Because the 4th day of CNY = 1st day of work at amd lor. Aih..first day very very the superbly sien because month end, they had to close account or something. So i was just sitting at some empty cubicle and staring at Microsoft Window Xp Profesionals for the whole gawd damn day... Arghhhhhhhh...

Second day more or less about the same, except that at night was playing cards at ynnek's hse..and where i lose alot of battle with Speng..cis..I want my revenge!!!!

Third Day jor, at last i was assigned to some work. I dont mind having work because that will at least occupy my time. I dont like to sit and do nothing wan lor...like rubbish although it's gaji buta la..hahahaha

Wah..!! Friday night was fun i tell you!! But i'll leave the details for other day... =)

Have a nice Pai Tee Kong day on Sunday!!!! It's gonna be like a war zone in Penang since we have so many hokkiens around :P

Edited
ps: I still canot believe that a goalkeeper can score o_O and then mu go own goal..and liverpool game also abit boring lor...sieeeeeennnnn... ( Now i know i kena con after reading newspaper, but was out whole day so couldn't edit this, si kui DESMOND!!!!! make me malu...)

Streamyx Customer Service sux!
At least the one at my house is! Omg!! I dono how frustrated i am with it!!

I'm SO SORRY to those on my msn list! I dont mean to pop in and out annoying the daylights out of you people. I just dono what else to do with the fucking internet connection. I'm like really piss off now.

This afternoon, i even went to the TM Point to complain to the people there. I mean, come on la, i've been calling the helpline since last year and nothing has been done. 1 freaking year!! I pay 80+ per month for nothing but to increase of blood preassure and risk of heart attack and increase the rate of aging therefore adding wrinkles to my face. wtf

I dont have anything good to say about Streamyx really. I mean damn stupid ok!! I already called the hotline and clearly it's useless so i went straight to the tmpoint, and the customer service people called the hotline and pass me the phone to speak to the hotline again. WTF, like i canot call from my house issit..mahai.... You call that customer service? My ass la...Ask them for solution, just sit there and smile while saying " Saye jugak tak tau leh, Kamu cakap dengan itu orang kat telepon la" fuck you la...What a waste of money hiring those useless craps.

Woohoo!! Way to go, malaysia largest internet service provider!!

I'm seriously looking for other options to online. Anyone know any other broadband provider? I need it fast! Penangfon is out of the question because my apartment is not listed. Sadness wei...

I'm really really sad can die ok, my downloads are not running, desperate housewives all stuck halfway. Damn depressing. Photos canot be upload, songs canot be transfer..like fucking no life... MSN suddenly will quiet, no one reply me and then i cant surf internet until for like 10mins, then i can onlien for another 15mins and the process repeats itself. Arghhhhh!! wtfwtfwtf ok...Sien kanasai ...

i curse you to death ok...go die go die go die go die!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*browse deathnote website and curse*


**********

On the other note, go watch The Holiday!! It's like so heart-warming, but kinda wrong to watch it during CNY. Luckily i watched it on Vday. hoho..not that bad. It made me fall head over heels with Jude Law all over again. I mean, he's like so god damn good looking, comparable to some ancient greek god alright. Love him! zilch.

The TAR Coursemate's Penang Trip
Just finished the trip with my coursemates in Penang. Bringing them around penang for 3 days is best time ever. I wished we had the trip earlier as the trip has brought us closer together yet after the trip we can do nothing but part ways.

So happen that i was like having bloggers streak! The night before i leave KL, went laundy to meet with my schoolmates. That's when i bump into the whole bunch of bloggers! Albert and Yeehou was really friendly as they came over to say hie first, and then i saw like shaolintiger, pinkpau and also kimberlycun there =) wah...happy but too starstruck till dono what to say..bodoh

Then once reach penang, we did our rounds of eating before heading over to the beach. Upon reaching the beach, everyone turns on camwhoring mode. omg, i tell you the time at the beach was one of the best i had! Everyone started jumping around..randomly..ala smashp0p.

Best photo i think is the candid one...so natural ..really love it.


I was walking up front and eh, how come that fella looks so familiar?? Turn out Boss Stewie was bringing his friend around at the beach too. Penang really small ya!

I see my friends jump till so seronok, i also want to join in the fun~


Looking back at these photos, makes me feel so sad and happy at the same time i think i'm going mad. The laughs we shared are more than few lectures time combine together. Things start to go out of control and we started to synchronize our jumps into funny poses...like the KungFu Style
and carefree/supergirl style

The guys just sat on the sand and watch us girls so mad with the camera. The day ended so well, the weather was so perfect! Sky so blue, wind blow softly, sun not scorching hot, clouds so cute can eat.


and then proceed to club later at night. I'm sorry if i caused any unhappiness the other night but i really do not mean it. I'm really sorry. I hope everyone had a great time there. and Guess who i saw at the club ?
I had a blast with you people there. I now realize how much you guys meant to me in my life. You guys are already part of my life for the past 2 years.

You guys are already embedded in me and im seriously having a hard time adjusting my life now and not seeing you guys at least once a week, even in a sleepy condition in a cold lecture hall. Oh, it was also to celebrate ynnek's birthday as i expect to be busy for the weekend and back to kl on its real day. Happy Belated Birthday, Butty!!


Guess already who i saw? It's KennySia, the kuching blogger la.. He entered this small game that the club had, eating tabasco sauce and chilli without hands. That's why you can see his lips like got abit swollen ya..hehe....sober at the time talking to him, forgot how the conversation went ady. But i did remember him being friendly and all...

My group member during assignment time! very very very innocent and nice gal.

The next day, brought the guys to have dinner at Hau You. The view there was really breathtaking. Me not lying. Photo as bukti. Really nice right??! It's sunset at that time and it's so so beautiful...


And then just to prove that its not some poster or wallpaper, ini dia. I'm in it also.

Knowing you guys is probably one of the best thing that happen in my life. People from all walks of life, enlightening and brightening me up in my daily life in KL. Without you guys, i guess my life in tar would be as dull as grey.
Now i wish that college life does not end that soon. I actually hope that i still have classes to attend, assignments to do so that this chapter in my life would not end. So that i get still get to see you guys on a weekly basis. This trip make it even harder for me to let go of kl. Make me misses it even more when we all got closer together. When i get to know someone better, from a hibye friend to someone i consider good friend, someone who i can trust.

For the pass few days when i went back to KL to get all my stuff, i've been meeting up with friends saying goodbye. Meeting new people and going new places. That's make my heart even more heavier to leave. My goodness, you dont know how long does it takes for me to complete this entry. Everytime must stop after awhile because i'll be filled with sadness i have no words for it anymore.

Thank you for closing the chapter so beautifully for me =) i love and misses you people already.


PS: i saw xiaxue at tapah stop on the way to kl. i'm like omg....3 days in a row, see all these bloggers, but i did not take any photos with her because she say she got no makeup on >_<

Penang has the BEST FOOD!!!
*edited*

This will be a quick sum up of those food i think is the best in penang! Very short description cos i still need to pack my stuff to go back to penang in a few hours...hehe, Oh, this only means i'm accepting Kennysia's Challenge. Erm, just tryinng out ler..i did this list after coming back from Laundry, tipsy abit..hehe

Best Ice Kacang with Fruits - Swatow Lane.
That would be the stall outside, not inside the coffeeshop. No denying that's the best already!!

Since you are there, might as well try the glutinous rice/Bak Chang!! I always love to eat that as well!!

Best Indian Pasembor - Swatow Lane, afternoon
It's the small stall opposite the swatow lane coffee shop. canot be miss. Although i dont eat spicy food, many of my friends love it to death. Even those KL friends =)

Best Egg Tart - Continental Bakery
It's also located around swatow lane, to be specific, Nagore Road. The egg tarts are always sold out, once i went several times in 3 days just to get some.

Best Indian Laksa - Behind Penang Plaza, now move to the recycle collection center, afternoon
The best food i think is all along the same road -.-||

Best Asam Laksa - The coffee shop opposite Peng Hwa Girl School, before 430 sold out d
It's so so yummy and cheap. At RM2.20 per bowl, y0u can have like so many bowls ok, and also the crispy spring rolls are a MUST!! Dip it with your laksa soup, it taking the fast lane to heaven.


Alternatively, you can try the one at AirItam but personally i dont like it at all!! But alot of KL ppl like to eat that la..dono why also..

Best Goreng Pisang & Stuff - the stall along Jetty, opens around 1pm plus
The road along Jetty, i dono the name also, but the stall is next to a shop that sells alot of bird..erm, got a little distance so dont worry you'll eat some feathers in your food. The tee kuih goreng is a must try!! Aiyo..Thinking of it alone makes me hungry..damn itThere's another stall along Jalan Frees School also, but that one i think it's okok only

At night, along Chulia Street.

Best Coconut Juice - Abu Siti Lane, afternoon
This one, go for the experience standing by the roadside drinking coconut under the hot sun lor. HEhehe..it's a good experience and also add some *ohm* to your trip to penang right? Plus, the coconut juice is good for you, so why not? and it's cheap ok!!


Best Bak Kut Teh - Song River along Gurney Drive, Morning

At night, it's macallister road, opposite Agora Hotel. It's the corner shop. very brightly light.

Best Chee Cheong Fun - Genting Coffeeshop, opposite SMK HamidKhan, Greenlane, lunch time only
THIS is the mother of all chee cheong fun!! The sauce its godlike! The secret? Because they add some peanut butter into it. People like tarpau this over to indonesia and so on want ok...so come must try.

Best Wan Tan Mee - Chulia Street, Night
Kuching has its Kolo Mee, Penang got it's Tok Tok Mee. Cheap, good and big portion!! But the wait is kinda long la..and the stupid fella kinda forgetful, it's a twin so sometimes i also forgot i order from which brother, or go scold the wrong person for having to wait so long..HEeheheThere's another stall along Terengganu Road which is behind Frees School, but i dont like there one cos the boss very lansi. Lansi places i dont like geh.

Afternoon, burmah road, next to Union primary school, also very good. And can buy the apom banana also. RM1.20 for 5 piece

Beehooi wantan mee is special. It's located at Pulau Tikus opposite the church

Best Koey Chiap - Bee Hooi Coffee Shop, afternoon.
Only lunch time

Best Chinese Pasembor - Padang Brown, around 2pm-5pm
This one, is really good! Erm..everything is of course good, sorry my vocabs are running out. If it's no good, there wont be like plenty lining up like it's free right ?? Abit spicy but you can control the level of spicyness if you tell the boss " Eh, dont wan too spicy ok?"

Best Lok Lok - Padang Brown, afternoon, Pulau Tikus Market- Night time
Whats the best thing bout eating lok lok in penang?? The price!!! The most expensive stick is only at RM1+ KL ones are like super duper expensive. Can broke one. The record breaking is held by my Cheras friends, 4 guys - nearly 100 sticks. Scary huh..cos it's cheap so they pok meng eat.


Best Burger - Tanjung Bungah, starts 630pm till late
It's a small minivan that managed by old uncle and auntie. Very very nice lor the burger, mouth watering. Everytime, even when i'm like super full, i still wanna buy if i go around that area. It's infront of Ingolf area. Everynight, you can see alot of cars lining up by the roadside just to buy this burger. and all those cars are like bmw, or merc cos rich people stay that area.

Best Pan Mee - the flats opposite Bukit Jambul Complex, around 11am +
This one, you must go early to beat those lunch time crowd. Or else the boss will tell you 'boh liau" finish ady, so normally i will proceed to eat mcd. very sad. And then if you go there, there's only 1 type of drinks. No other choices wan.

Best Duck Rice - Opp. Tanjung Bungah bus station, around lunch time finish ady. or Happy Coffee Shop, in Lipsin garden opposite Macro. I hate duck rice and that's the only 2 places i will eat duck rice. It's that good i tell you.

There's another one that opens only at 3am, but till today i dono where is it. Can someone tell me ar? thanks.

Best Chicken Rice - Genting Coffee Shop - lunch time
The same coffeeshop as the nice chee cheong fun. My friend had 4 plates at 1 go. Normally we order the chicken rice and then chee cheong fun big one to share.. The chicken rice seriously very smooth and nice

The corner coffeeshop when you are about to turn into TAR COLLEGE straight after you come out from Vales of Temp. Sorry i dono the coffee shop name, we all just nick name it Corner Shop. Only Rm2.20 per plate, cheap le, somemore got soup to go with it.

So Young cafe, next to Lam Wah Ee hospital in Greenlane.

Best Cendol - The small lane along Penang Road, afternoon
This one no need to introduce also alot of people already know. Phua Chu Kang they all also tried before, so erm. Its good lor! Dono what to say, cos i prefer ice kacang anyday. If wanna be more adventourous, then try the "che chau" Green grass! Hohoh..try ady tell me what you think bout it yaBest Nasi Kandar - Raffee, Pulau Tikus
Opposite the police station, normally very full at night after clubbing time.

Another one i like to go is Ali, along penang road where got 1 famous Transex used to work name Siti. Heehehe.."she" likes to flirt with the guys and i was very entertain by her antics. They have very nice Roti Hong Kong - THAT KL TAKDA!!!!

Best Place to go if you have nothing to do in Penang for lunch and crave for fresh kinda exotic food - Permatang Pauh, Butterworth
Sorry, this one i know how to go but dono how to explain cos the way damn complicated. Erm, you see the big signboard TIGER BEER, then turn into a lorong. Voila, you see this hufe place! ahaaha

They have like the freshest steam fish ever, and extremely crispy popiah to go with. Their specialty is little chicken. It's actually spring chicken la, so dont worry, we are not eating chicken little. The lil chicks are extremely popular and always sold out.

They also serve octopus and wild boars meat. To alco lovers, you can try their tuak here. Very fresh. Some people canot take the smell, but i like. It's indian alcohol and made of coconut. infact i think it's something like lassi.

Best Char Koey Teow - Macalister Road, sister charkoeyteow.
Surprisingly i dont eat charkoeyteow, but these are the one that people are crazy about in penang la.

Also, the super lansi and expensive one, Lorong Selamat. 1 plate can cost you RM5 and above, what move when you need to line up and get it yourself. ughh..i dont like.

Best Hokkien Mee- Lebuh Macallum, dinner.
This is where we call "3rd street" in penang. They have alot of nice food there including the fried oyster.

AirItam - Late Afternoon
This one they had a stall suddenly out of no where, but people still line up to eat. No place to sit and no table to eat, so eat where? The hokkien mee is so nice that people will squat next to the toto shop just to eat this delicious stuff.

Best Char Kueh Kak - Batu Lanchang Market, afternoon
Selling is a very cute aunty with a super high pitch voice. Canot miss wan, cos very noticeable. although she's like super short. hAHA..sorry.

Burmah Road, opposite Adventist Church, at night. Canot be miss one cos alot of car lining up for it as well

Best Seafood - Hau you, Teluk Kumbar
Ok, alot of people say the other place is nicer, but to me, this is the best place already. You eat on a beach, can see sunset if you go earlier. Estimate bout RM200 for 10 adults for about 8 dishes, the type you eat till gila and still canot finish type. The thing in the photo is "chi ley" spikey shell type. Just showing you people cos i know alot of people haven't seen it before. My friend somemore collect the shell to give it to his gf as souveniour. Super sesat one. There's a small stall selling just satay next to the seafood place. Although the satay is 60cent per stick, it's super nice. so try la.


If you have the time, can go YEN at batu kawan. Its really nice also, must try the fried mantau.

Best Koey Teow Th'ng - Jelutong Market, at night
Waroa...it's still the best ok~ The soup taste like super nice and it's also cheap. If i'm not wrong still below RM2 per bowl. Even though it already naik harga also wont be above RM2.50

Mount Eskine afternoon, try the dry one though, with loads of mushrooms!! The uncle is a very funny and polite guy =)

Best Beef Noodle - Sri Weld Food court, lunch time

Best Dim Sum - Tai Thong, somewhere near Kimberly Street
This one i always go with my family on sunday mornings and also with my grandaddy every morning when he drop me off to school. Its so best that normally have to wait for a table like mad. Advice, drop some people to wait for table while you go find parking, cos it's super hard to find a spot in penang old town too.

Best Layer Cake - Sunflower Bakery, along tanjung bungah

Best place for chinese food when you are sick of mamak after clubbing - Green House, Burmah Road.
I think its the few that opens till 5am and has a lot of varieties. Try the "yue sang kai chok" /porridge. It's good.

Best Loh Mee - the coffee shop next to adventist Church, opposite union primary school along burmah road. Only Afternoon.

Best Economy Rice - Perak Road.
The area where alot of motors and scary people stays. HAHAha..teongli dont kill me. Yet, they have the best and cheapest economy rice. The tau eew bak, is very best!!

Best Bak Chang - Swatow Lane, and The van beside adventist church along burmah road. It's also afternoon only.

Best Soyabean - Island Glades, there's a shop selling only soyabean. Very famous.
At night, would be the one at Terengganu Road infront of Eden.

Best Afternoon Delight Dessert/ Oh Kioh - Pengkalan Weld Afternoon, Chulia Street Night time
It's a very cooling to eat when you got nothing to do in the hot afternoon. Consists of jellies, a slice of lemon, shaved ice and also lychee. Good for heaty body also =) The stall is just opposite the one selling the goreng pisang. Can't be missed.

Best Indian Mee Goreng - Mount Eskine afternoon, damn good, fried by chinese guy somemore.

Best Roti Babi - Old Folk's Home, Scott Road(behind adventist hospital)
Although the name is roti babi, but it's NO POK! ok? I also don't know the reason it's called roti babi, but its actually spring rolls with some meat. The most important ingredient to the whole thing is that you must eat it HOT and with the black sauce which i highly suspect it's HP sauce.

I canot think anymore..That's all for now.HEHE enjoy. Im going back penang now, will add in photos i took 3 days after tis. Mostly wont online cos penang monitor already blow..hehe...
