"Hey, yeah, cool!"'s an inside joke between VinXi, SueFinn and I. Sorry for not updating for so long. I've been hooked on Restaurant City, Neopets and Chocolatier for days. Plus, I went to Melaka on Mon and Tue. Have lots to tell..about the trip, I mean. Not on Restaurant City....but I highly recommend it! ^^
VinXi, SueFinn & I

First trip ever without any of my family with me...just friends. Surprisingly, my parents let me. Okay, it's just 2 hours away from, not that bad laa. Mission for the trip on our minds were...FOOD! Yes...lots of good food. Not Stadhuys, A'Famosa or Taman Buaya...those crap we always write in our primary school essays. I've been to Melaka tons of times. In Form 3's school trip, I went to Melaka too but it wasn't much because they just brought us to some quiet, boring fruit farm and Mahkota Parade. There wasn't Jonker Street or all that good stuff. I had it all planned. The places we would go, the food we will eat, the place we will stay and how we'd go there. They slept at my house the day before then we head over to Puduraya for a bus to Melaka. I thought a bus ticket would cost RM9...but a backpacker virgin like me didn't think of the government tax at all. Everything I had was from the internet. Internet has good info..but experience is way better.

The Dutch Square

Church of St.Francis Xavier

I told VinXi and Sue I was gonna give really bad reviews to Ringos Foyer Guesthouse. This is why. We took the bus from Melaka Sentral to the Dutch Square then trekked for at least 5 kilometres under the hot sun on a Monday noon searching for the hostel. Okay...when we were finally there, we pressed on the door bell for a couple of times and no one was there. I even got so frustrated that I pressed on the bell like a maniac. I think the sun must have gotten to me. No one was there, we were tired, sweating and stranded. Thank God we didn't get sunstroke and pass out in the middle of heavy trafic. That will be an experience to remember. Anyway...I read several reviews and heard that Ringos was a great place to stay. They got 86% on their overall review. Well...they didn't mention they don't operate on lunch hours, did they!? So, why is it that we couldn't get the amazing service reviewed on HostelWorld? Like lost lambs, we trekked everywhere for a place to stay...wasting hours of our precious time that could be used to eat cendol!!

the view behind our room

Finally, we found a reasonable guesthouse to stay the night in. It's called River View Guest House. Yeah, I wrote a good review for this one. The owners, Raymond and Mani were really friendly. They told us to help ourselves to anything in the kitchen. It was as if we were in our own house...supported by SueFinn's constant referral to the guesthouse as 'home'. It's pretty there weren't many people staying there. We could even choose our own room and it has a view of the Melaka River!! Ferries would pass by the guesthouse and we would wave at them.'s pretty hot in the room, especially if you're used to the ac. It's just next to Jonker Street with full access to pubs(not that we went), public transports, and definitely, good food.

chicken rice balls

Nyonya cendol

Coca-Cola museum

Speaking of good food, Melaka has it all. The first thing we had was chicken rice balls at Hoe Kee restaurant. It was really good and cheap. I only paid 5 bucks for the meal which is wayy cheaper than the price in KL. After that, cendol for dessert. This guy specializes in Nyonya cendol and his shop is full of collectibles from Coca-Cola. It was like stepping into a museum. It was just opposite Hoe, we didn't do much walking for the cendol we had been waiting days for. After that, we did some walking around Jonker Street and got a map from the Tourist Police. Even with the map, we managed to get lost a couple of times more than necessary....usually led by me. We took the Panorama bus around town. Went to Mahkota Parade and Dataran Pahlawan. Which I must say, are the only places we can find people our age. Jonker Street is quiet on weekdays. If you want to go Melaka for nightlife, you should go on fridays and weekends where stalls are open at night. But with so many people, you'd have to wait in line for everything. We went to the Portuguese Settlement too...and saw the sea!'s wasn't really the's the Straits of Melaka...but it's the closest we can get to the sea. The beach was really dirty though...and I saw some ships dumping oil into the waters. But there were still a few fishing boats nearby. VinXi made a joke about the sun. She pointed at the sun and the beach and said, "sun of a beach". wonder the sun was glaring at us that day...

at the beach

sun of a beach

satay celup

Got lost on the way to eat dinner...again, my fault but thank heavens for people and directions. We had satay celup for dinner. I actually planned to go Capitol Satay but it was closed. So, we had to eat at the pirated version of it...the one next door. I forgot it's name...but it was alright. It was just 8pm but shops were already closed. Trekked back to the hostel...didn't get lost there! Saw a stall selling fried oyster (ho jian) and they looked delicious. Rented bikes for tomorrow with the help of the guesthouse owner. Went back to talk, eat and finally slept at 2am. Oh...I just have to highlight VinXi's constant singing. At first, it was bearable but after a was funny and annoying. She had to sing the whole one point, she sang to the curtain on our window, as if it will close by itself with the help of her magical singing. Singing was still okay...but couple it up with get the picture. And she's a huge fan of Super Junior. Even to the extent of watching MVs everyday and memorizing all their dance moves.

VinXi's Super Junior


Bukit Cina

Next morning, we woke up at 5am and cycled to Bukit Cina to catch the sunrise. Actually...more like getting lost, then cycled to Bukit Cina. It was a nightmare...we followed the not-very-detailed map and I again, led us to nowhere. We had to ask for directions three times. At one point, we even cycled into a cemetary. We know where Bukit Cina's just the question of how to go up. There was this creepy road up that we could have cycled up but it was just too scary...especially since Bukit Cina is where all the tombs are. So, we searched everywhere for an hour and finally found access up, next to a school The guards told us to go up only when there is more light. We actually woke up way earlier than necessary...but it was good too...since we wasted all that unnecessary time on getting lost. Saw the sky turning brighter...but the sun did not turn was just too cloudy. Up there, we got really good view of Melaka city. It wasn't much...not like KL anyway. No skyscrapers or high-rise buildings. But it has a charming feel to it. Up there, people, mostly middle-aged, comes up to exercise. VinXi, mentioned that it was a good location for a music video. Really...with all the tombstones behind. Maybe we should recreate Michael Jackson's Thriller-asian version.

Eye on Malaysia

VinXi, relaxing

me, freaking out

Baba laksa

Had breakfast and went back to the hostel for a nap. More singing on VinXi's part. Cycled to Eye on Malaysia. We didn't get a chance to ride it in KL. It wasn't much of a view up there but it definitely reminded me of my phobia of heights. I paid 8 bucks for that ride and immediately regretted it when the ferris wheel moved. No one was there....we had the ride to ourselves. To me, cycling there was more fun than the ride itself. Mostly because there weren't any cars and we had the wind blowing on our faces. Went for lunch at MAM restaurant on Jonker Street. The baba laksa there is amazing! Very different than the laksa we're used to. It has lots of kaffir lime leaves in the soup with canned tuna. It doesn't have the oily and thick taste in normal curry laksa. It tasted refreshing and light. Had cendol and abc. Then we went to tapau chicken rice ball for the trip home and Sue bought pinneaple tarts. Took the bus back to Melaka Sentral and took the 'exclusive bus' which was a load of crap. The guy promised us a tv and drinks. All we had were the radio on Sinar fm and a pretty comfy seat. When I asked the driver to drop us off at KTM Serdang, he dropped us at some rest house next to UPM. Thank God my brother knows where to pick up up.

Going home (bad cam-whoring skills)

All in was a great trip! Except the part of getting lost a lot. Had a great experience with food and the people there. To compare KL and Melaka is like comparing the past and the future of Malaysia. Throughout the trip, people offered to help us when we get lost. I call it, power of the map. When I hold my map up, the locals swarm to help us. When we cross the street, the cars stop for us. It was so different from what I know of KL. In KL, if you don't walk fast, cars will not stop for you and drivers will shout at you. Everything in KL is about luxury in the fastest way possible. KL people has no time to be friendly. There are robbers everywhere and the people around will just watch you getting robbed, expecting someone else to call 999 or help the victim out. In my previous posts, I mentioned buses in Malaysia being rude and the drivers unfriendly. Well, I was shown wrong. Buses in Malaysia isn't rude at all....only RapidKL buses are. In Melaka, we were shown Malaysian hospitality at its highest. The guesthouse owner was willing to help. The bus we took, Panorama, was constant. The drivers will ask us where we want to go and offer to direct us to the right station. It was a whole other view of Malaysia. However, I must say that the drains there are clogged up and really stinks. Reminds me of my hometown, actually. In Muar, the drains smell the same and had the same unidentified jelly-like substance that don't flow in the drains. Apart from that, Melaka was a breath of fresh air. Very much recommend it...go on weekends if you like the nightlife. But to me, going on weekdays was pretty good because we didn't have to get in line or face the crowds. Oh...and going with friends is way more enjoyable because you learn to be independent and you're not tied down by your parents.

Tuesday, April 21, 2009


Heya! I went for my driving test today. Passed the first part of it which consisted of going up a slope, side parking and 3 point-turning. Came the second part, I waited for an hour and half and didn't even get on the car seat for more than 5 minutes. The instructor asked me stop at the side of the road. He told me I overshot the white line that I was supposed to stop before. I was kinda nervous then so, I admit that I was wrong there. My heard sank when he told me it was a 'kesalahan mandatori'. We changed seats and he drove us back which, I think is unnecessary since we're barely half a kilometer away from the centre. The crappy part to this is that I didn't even get a chance to go on the road. Man, that totally sucked!

Like I always do, I got over it after some complaining. My friends and my own mum told me I should've bribed. Whatever. I just can't and won't bribe. Call me's just that way., I got back and slept for a while because I just don't have mood to study for Chemistry then. I even dreamed that I would fail the next time I retake the test. When I woke up as usual, I checked my mail and stuff. I read my daily mail from Pastor Rick Warren: Purpose Driven Connection. I usually just browse through it and forget about it. But today, it made me cry. I thought God has forsaken me when I took the driving test. I just couldn't understand why even after praying, I still failed. Was it not enough? Or is God testing me. Well, he gave me an answer, alright.

"There's far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can't see now will last forever" (2 Corinthians 4:18 MSG).

So much of what we waste our energy on will not matter even a year from now, much less for eternity. Don't trade your life for temporary things. Jesus said, "Anyone who lets himself be distracted from the work I plan for him is not fit for the Kingdom of God" (Luke 9:62 LB). Paul warned, "Deal as sparingly as possible with the things the world thrusts on you. This world as you see it is on its way out" (1 Corinthians 7:31 MSG).

What are you allowing to stand in the way of your mission? Whatever it is, let it go. "Let us strip off anything that slows us down or holds us back..." (Hebrews 12:1 LB).

How can we do this? In one of his most misunderstood statements, Jesus said, "I tell you, use worldly wealth to gain friends for yourselves, so that when it is gone, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings" (Luke 16:9 NIV).

Jesus did not mean for you to "buy" friends with money. What he meant was that you should use the money God gives you to bring people to Christ. They will then be friends for eternity who will welcome you when you get to heaven! It's the best financial investment you'll ever make.

You've probably heard the expression, "You can't take it with you," but the Bible says you can send it on ahead, by investing it in people who are going there! The Bible says, "By doing this they will be storing up real treasure for themselves in heaven—it is the only safe investment for eternity! And they will be living a fruitful Christian life down here as well" (1 Timothy 6:19 LB).

So, I'm gonna keep trying because I know He will be with me no matter what happens. He has a plan for me.

Did That Happen To You? (Tagged by Sunbae)

Why do everyone these days like to tag me? I'm I that 'taggable'? Gonna have to think up of a plan to kenakan you guys back..*evil laughs*

1. Answer the questions as honestly (or as funny) as possible.

2. Post this as "Did That Happen To You?"
3. Tag 20 friends.
4. Everyone tagged has to do the same thing.
5. Have fun!

Question 1:What do you do if you are in the bathroom with a beetle flying around?
If it comes near me, i'll spray the crap out of it and watch it drown and die *evil laughs*

Question 2:What do you do if you hear a song you like playing on the radio when you are all alone in the room?
Sing my heart out.

Question 3:You want to speak to your crush badly.What is your pick up line?
What goes on in my head: "Hey! You're that guy from *** right?"
What goes on in reality: *staring at him* (hanya memandang dari jauh).

Question 4:What do you do if all your friends hate a particular band that you love?
Keep to myself.

Question 5:What do you do when you trip and fall in front of many people?
I've got three steps to this: (BLW) Blush, Laugh, Walkaway.

Question 6:You forgot to do your multiple-choice question homework (the one whereby you have to choose 1 out of 4 options given to you as your answer) and it had to be submit in 5 minutes. What do you do?

Happened a lot of times (especially in Chem). The lecturer really didn't care, so I did the thing on the spot.

Question 7:You have bad breath and someone speaks to you.How do you react?

Speak minimally and smiling always stop someone from asking any further but when I really have to say something, speak downwards lah.

Question 8:You just finished gym and after a shower, you drop your clean clothes on the wet floor. What do you do?
Still wear it, unless there is some kinda unidentified substance on the floor, then I'll borrow some of my friend's.

Question 9:What do you do if a personality quiz says that you have a lousy personality as your result?
Whatever lah. It's not like a personality test can define me. I define myself, I don't shape myself to be what that quiz say I am.

Question 10:Your friend gave you the worst gift you have ever received and asks: Do you like it? How do you react?

Please and thank you!

Question 11:(Continued from question 10) What are you really thinking secretly inside?

I'm probably gonna put it aside in my display collection of unused birthday presents.

Question 12: hot guy/girl keeps looking at you while you are on the bus. What are you secretly thinking inside?

Chances of that happening is less than 0%. But if that happens, that guy might me thinking I'm weird.

Question 13:Your crush and you are eating dinner together, the food you've ordered came first, you do not want him or her to look at you eating while his or her food hasn't come. What will you do?

Chat with him until his dinner comes.

Question 14:You are alone in your house and you realized that there is a burglar. What do you do?

What I dream of doing: Now this has happened before, my siblings and I were huge '3 Ninjas' fans. I was Tum Tum, my sis, Colt and my bro, Rocky. We had all these shurikens made out of popsicle sticks and lotsa duct tape. And we just started practicing Taekwondo too. We promised each other that if someone did break into our house, we're gonna kick the burglar's butt. My weapon of choice was a large decorative fork as tall as I was. On the night of the break-in, guess what happened? We were sleeping like pigs!! I'm glad the burglar did not break into our rooms and threaten us.
What I would really do: Dial 999.

Question 15:What do you do when your best friend had just spoilt your favourite one and only camera with all the important photos you cherished inside?

First thought would be to curse in an array of colourful words then my conscience would kick in and I'll say, "It's alright." (partly to that person and partly to myself).

Question 16:What do you do when you receive a call from a kidnapper and your friend is in their hands?

Make sure if it's true then call 999 then call his/her parents.

Question 17:What do you do if you break your friend's favourite vase but he or she didn't saw it?

Walk around in the same spot for a while, thinking how would he/she react and how can I repay he/she. Then tell the truth and face whatever that's gonna come.

Question 18:You were told to buy carrots by your mother, but you forgotten it and went back home with garlic. How will you explain to your mother?
Go out and buy the carrots again before she even know's I'm back with garlic.

Question 19:What do you do when you saw a cat chasing a mouse?
Let go of my dog.

Ahh..finally, no more assignments for the rest of the semester!! These past two weeks had been crazy! So, I decided to treat myself to unadon Actually, I’m blogging from Sushi Zanmai right now. Unadon was my lunch but I saw this thing called Ika Natto on the menu and it reminded me of Yakitate!! Japan. For those who don’t watch it, I seriously recommend it…especially if you like culinary stuff like my sis. She doesn’t watch anime at all but loved Yakitate!! Japan after I intro it to her.

Anyway, for those who did watch it, remember the part where Azuma’s grandpa ate natto with bread? looked delicious…so, I tried it and found out that it’s disgusting. It’s exactly like how the anime made it look like, sticky and slimy. I thought it was supposed to be sweet but it’s not. It’s fermented soybeans, so you can already imagine the rotten taste of it. It tasted like I was eating my own flem out of a bowl. And I paid for it! I wouldn’t eat it again even if I get paid.

With all the craze about Boys Before Flowers(HYD Korean Ver.), I got sucked into it too. doubt, I'm not the crazy Korean drama fan kinda girl. I've always wondered why people watch Korean dramas..their plots are all about love and betrayal, that kinda thing. Basically, predictable dramas (like certain TVB ones too). But, BBF is way different cos it's based on HYD manga which btw, is awesome!

This is how i got into the whole HYD phenomenon...
Pride & Prejudice movie>HYD manga(apparently it's loosely based on P&P)>HYD Jap Drama>HYD Jap Movie>BBF!!!
BBF lead to other things too...
BBF>Kim Bum (^^)>Kim Hyun Joong>SS501>Korean shows.
I'm a Korean drama virgin before BBF and this is really a breakthrough for me to explore into Korean stuff. I'm addicted to Korean songs now..haha!!

Anywayy...HYD started with the manga, then the anime, Taiwan drama, Jap drama and now Korean drama. What's next? Malaysian drama? LOL..
Comparing the actors with the characters of HYD, I can honestly say...the Korean one is the best. Taiwan ver. is okay at first but in Season 2, the plotline don't really follow the manga anymore. Jap ver. follows the plotline and it's super funny but the actors are not beautiful as the manga says they are. BBF actors are beautiful, not handsome, beautiful!! And they portray the characters really well I feel like I'm reading the manga and watching the drama. Of course, they added some scenes not in the manga but just as perfect!

Just for your info, I'm a fan of Kim Bum and Kim Hyun Joong's now..haha. KB is just, well...cute and KHY is musically talented and of course, beautiful. Rumours say that BBF is coming out with Season 2 next year Feb. So long eh...

Smile - Nat King Cole

Music Playlist at

Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though its breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, youll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
Youll see the sun come shining through for you

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
Thats the time you must keep on trying
Smile, whats the use of crying?
Youll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

Thats the time you must keep on trying
Smile, whats the use of crying?
Youll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

Friday, April 3, 2009 of the greatest mystery in the world.

As you all may already know, I'm a supporter of the environment. So, I take the public transport to school. (Okay, it's that or walking.) Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, my dad send me to college on his way to work and sometimes I really feel like rolling down the window to scream at the other drivers heading to work/college. Why don't they just try car pooling? I mean, your colleague may just be the driver in the car right behind you. About 80% of the cars I see on the road are empty (save for the driver). That just tells you who are the culprits of the morning, evening rush and all that stress. If we just choose to car pool, we can save so much petrol, save the environment and save time. I know, I sound so much like a tree-hugger these days.

Okay, the main thing I wanna post today is about the RapidKL buses. They're inconsistent and the drivers think they're 'all that'! Just today while waiting for Alex to pick me up after class at the LRT station, the bus stopped right in the middle of the busy road in front of the station. I didn't realize it at first until a few cars behind it started honking. Then only I saw that the bus was, well....driverless. He just literally parked right in the middle of the road without any concern for other people. And you know what the 'emergency' was? He had to park in the middle of the road causing traffic get a cup of coffee. That's it, and he didn't even feel guily about it. Just strode back into the bus like some big-shot while cars behind were honking like mad. Just because the bus is 3 times huger than a normal car, the driver thinks he owns the roads. In rude BM, that's called...'jalan bapak dia!'

This is not the first nightmare encounter I have with RapidKL either. Usually when I'm late, I would take the LRT to Bangsar then take the bus to college. The bus would be there waiting most of the time...but you know what? Driverless again. If it's for 5 minutes it's okay la...they need a break too. But it just get on my nerves sometimes when they go for 15-20 minute breaks. To all the lecturers of HUC, this is why I'm late sometimes. We have to wait for them! Like we need them! If I knew how to drive a bus, I would've driven it myself.

Speaking of public transports, the KTM is another problem I have with Malaysia's public transport system. In school textbooks, we learn that we should always save the environment by taking the public transport and car pooling. I totally agree with that but I really wanna ask the people who wrote the textbooks.."How can I take the public transport when it sucks so much I wanna cry?" Let me give you a very good example, just happened to me today-again. (Yeah, today's not a very good travelling day for me.) I usually take the KTM train from KL Sentral back to Tasik Selatan. It costs me 1 ringgit and the route is actually more convenient compared to the LRT which I have to change routes at Masjid Jamek and costs me RM3.70. Anyhoo...usually the trains will come in 10-20 minutes or so. (Again, very inconsistent.) Just for today, to let me suffer a bit more than usual, I had to wait for 30 min for a train! Of course, I didn't want to and took the LRT instead. Take it from me, the only public transports worth taking in Malaysia are the LRT and cabs.
