你是在耍我吗?

亲爱的你,

是你在甜言蜜语,
还是我天真?

是你自信满满,
还是我太轻易相信?

是你对我真心,
还是我自找麻烦?

我好害怕

我是否在玩火,
是否会汤伤?

我是真的分不清
你是在付出真心
或是在耍我

我不陪你玩了
我玩不起

怎么办?

重开始到现在都是他在照顾我。吃的都是他準备。有时也会做家务。没有斤斤计较。也不会随便花钱。对我很好。但是他总不懂尊重我的理想。

我有一点害怕。我会不会再遇见一位好像他对我那么好的男人呢?

還是不要想太多。好好享受我新得到的单生吧!

我们决定要分手了。他给我的幸福我永远记得。

三年前的决定很快要实现了。我心理老早已经準备做好了。你面前嘻嘻哈哈的我跟来澳洲之前的我是不同一个人。我现在比较懂得保护自己了。以前談的恋爱叫我怎么放手,怎么不受伤。

爱的世界,我要和你道别了。不晓得我们及时回重逢呢。。。

分手比较好
好朋友做到老
不用太多烦恼
也不会带来困扰
再见说的不早
我带着一顶红帽
往着你返方向跑
面对我的未来你必须知道
不是不爱你而是不能陪
跟我回家你却不要
我答应我自己不流眼泪
越早越好 不要拉拉扯扯
我会累
爱情让我感觉到很疲惫
够了 我们的感情
留下的回忆 很美

Jennie's in town!: Last day

Having spent a late night out (for the first time in my life, I arrived home at 3:30am!), we woke up in time to meet up with Belinda for brunch. Belinda was already at Midvalley when we were in the toilet brushing our teeth!

We were in a frenzy trying to quicken our paces! Quick, quick, bak kut teh is waiting for us!

Initially, we wanted to bring Jennie to Klang for bak kut teh but Klang wor, so far! Anyways, I wouldn't know which shop to bring her to. How would I know which are the famous ones and which are not? In the end, we decided on the one Dad introduced. It's this unassuming restaurant along the LDP, diagonally across the road from St. Ignatius. Although a tad pricey, it surely was worth it!

As we still had some time before Jennie had to check-in, we detoured to Ara Damansara for a cuppa. Glad that she liked the shop. I mean, who wouldn't?



We only had drinks as the bak kut teh had yet to digest:



Before taking Jennie to KL Sentral, we made a stop in SS2, as she wanted to buy some meat floss. We were caught in a massive traffic jam as the temple in Brickfields was making preparations for the candle-light procession later in the evening. However, Jennie still made it in time to check-in for her flight at KLIA.

Dear Jennie, thank you for dropping by. Remember that:

Jennie's in town!: Putrajaya and Kuala Selangor

We were supposed to visit Putrajaya on Saturday but since Belinda wanted to meet up for brekkie on Saturday, we changed our itinerary. We had to do Putrajaya today and for once, I was happy that it isn't that far away from home.

What can one say about Putrajaya? Well, it's like Canberra, just much newer and exaggerated. Oh, we have many bridges that connect the 'island' floating in the middle of the man-made lake. Many buildings are still under construction. Some plots of land are still vacant.

As usual, we had to stop and take photos of the mosque. It has to be THE most photographed mosque in Malaysia.




Also, we took notice of some of the many bridges in the administrative city.




There was the convention centre, which looked like a manta ray. I think passers-by must have thought we were crazy to be taking photos under the hot sun.


We drove around the place and being the blur person I am, we were unsure of where we were supposed to head to. Oh well, we thought we'd follow passing cars and we stopped by a pier when we saw this:


Yup, we decided to be busybodies! Our tummies started to rumble and so we took that as a sign to head home. After having pan mee for lunch, I took Jennie to Wangsa Maju. "Wangsa Maju, what's there?" you may ask. Ah, well, this:


Yes, Royal Selangor. You won't get this anywhere else in the world, trust me. Inside, we were taken on a personal tour of the company's history. There were many things on display, showing how pewter was mined and used.




They had a wall covered with the prints of all staff members, which I thought was a good idea to promote a sense of belonging in the company:


I was impressed with the designs of the following trophies:



Both of us came out with a bag of something. I bought something that was on sale and Jennie bought a pair of really suave cuff links for a someone back in HK...


We rushed back home to shower and headed straight over to Hartamas. We were meeting up with Max and Catherine. Max drove my car and we headed to Kuala Selangor for some seafood! So happy! And when you're there, you wouldn't miss the chance to sight fireflies. Although Jennie was afraid of the sampan sinking, she was still amazed at the small flickering lights. However, it is sad to note that this time around is the least bright of the three times I've been there.

By the time we got back to Hartamas, it was past midnight. Drove over to KPMG so that we could meet up with someone we have not seen since he left Sydney three years ago - Ta Seng!



Thank you for driving all the way up from JB!

Jennie's in town!: Malacca

Today we headed to Malacca for a day trip. Well, strictly speaking, it was less than a day but the hour-long drive (one way) was enough to kill plenty of my brain cells. We did not get lost. We even managed to find a parking space without any hassle. Come on, if I can navigate my way around NZ and Australia, I don't see why I can't handle a place like Malacca...

After paying RM2 to the car park attendant, we walked along the River Walk towards Jonker Street. First place of recommendation: Restoran Chung Wah.


Famous for their chicken rice ball, Jennie could not stop drinking the sauce! Admittedly, their chicken was delectable to our tastebuds. The texture of the chicken was just right and the sauce, yes, just imagine Jennie licking the plate clean.



What better way to walk off the calories than to explore Jonker Street? We walked into the fashion boutiques that sold quirky t-shirts and colourful accessories. We walked into shops selling traditional handicrafts. We visited Cheng Hoon Teng Temple. I did not dare to snap photos as it was a place of worship and being the oldest temple in Malaysia, due respect has to be given.

Across the road from the temple, there was an attractive art gallery. I bought a cheap painting and took home some free bookmarks. The artist himself was there. There was a set of lily paintings which I thought would have suited Mum but hm, better not to be so spendthrift la. He was friendly and helpful, informing us of where to go for makan and for knowledge. We heeded his advice and foud ourselves digging into heavenly cendol and ais kacang served at Jonker 88:



We walked around the area to soak in the 'Malacca feel': pre-historic houses...



and literal kaki limas (five-foot ways)...


When you are in Malacca, you must stop by the Orang Utan House to buy their t-shirts. Today, we were lucky enough to have been served by the artist himself! Aiya, but I was too shy to ask for a photo with him...

On the way to the Peranakan museum, we walked past a shop that sold clogs


and when we showed Belinda the pictures, she pointed out that the person making the clogs was her uncle!


Any trip to Malacca would be incomplete without stopping by what's left of the fort, A'Famosa:


We climbed the hill at the back of it to reach St. Paul's Cathedral, or haha, what's left of it as well:





Oh, can you see Eye On Malacca in the background?


On the drive home, I nearly fell asleep. Jennie was already asleep by the time we got out of Malacca. I blame the highway for being too straight and green. How can you not fall asleep after eating so much in a place like Malacca?!?

I took Jennie to Belinda's house as it was her turn to care for Jennie that night. I had my dancing to attend. After dance, Yee Khai was sweet enough to take me out to Desa and together, we brought Jennie up to 'Little Genting'. As we couldn't find the place where all the makan shops were, we decided to head back down to Kuchai. Again, due to time constraints, Jennie's wish of going to Ipoh for the hor fun could not be fulfilled and was replaced with Old Town White Coffee's chicken hor fun. Haha, and guess what was her verdict?

Yes, it was too sweet!

Jennie's in town!: Touch down

Any of you remember my Hong Konger friend, Jennie? The one with the high-pitched voice? The one who is crazy intelligent? The one who can sing at the karaoke for four hours straight? The one who shared my wall for 1.5 years?

Well, she recently took a short break from her hectic E&Y schedule to pay me a visit down here in warm and stuffy KL. I was so happy to see her!

She nearly panicked at the airport as I was in the toilet when she came out of the arrival gates. Without coverage in the toilet, she couldn't get through to my phone and so, haha, she contacted Belinda instead. Of course, first thing you'd do when you've not met your friend in 4 years would be to give her a big bear hug!

We stopped by home for a bit to take down her luggage and freshen up a little. Went over to say hi to mum and we headed straight for chow. Haha, we are Chinese, aren't we? We will always be thinking of eating! I actually wanted to bring her to Qi Xuan's mum's shop for yong taufu but they don't open on Wednesdays so it was to Leong Ya over near the Mines. I thought she'd find the 'paper wrapped chicken' interesting but no, she'd seen it before. Cheh.

Decided to drive directly to Midvalley after that because I did not want to get stuck in traffic. Just as well because it was nearly peak hour. We did a little window-shopping while waiting for Belinda to arrive. When she did, we had dinner at Little Penang. Why that particular shop? Well, as Jennie's tight schedule did not allow for us to physically be in Penang, we thought we might as well have some Penang food here in KL. Little Penang would naturally be the first choice.

It's weird how Jennie thought everything we ordered tasted sweet. Even the laksa she had and the prawn noodles I ordered tasted sweet to her. She seemed to prefer the prawn noodle over the laksa but she was good sport, as she tried everything. She was obviously trying to withstand the spiciness of the food (she was sweating profusely) but she said, "Everything have to try ma!"

After that, we introduced her to yumcha, Malaysian style. You see, in HK, yumcha would be having dimsum in the morning. In Malaysia, yumcha would be literaly drinking tea of some sort at a mamak stall. Again, she found our drinks really sweet but liked the teh-o ais limau Belinda ordered for her. The roti tisu was too sweet, too!

She gave me a 'look' when I ordered my drink and said, "Wah, old habits die hard ah, you still love your Milo!"

Dor's wedding dinner

Like all Chinese wedding dinners, this one started late. We were at Equatorial KL and were expecting good food (as they were reputed to be one of the better wedding banquet organisers in town). If not for the company that night, I thought Shamy's wedding banquet was much better but hey, who am I to complain? Yuen Chai made the comment that service was not up to par. I thought the food was bland. The only dishes I enjoyed were the first and the last, the dessert.


I only managed to take a picture of the last one as the first one was gobbled up before I could remember where my camera was!

We spent most of the night catching up, drinking and snapping photos. I think we were the most disorganised table for the night. Haha, and I think the noisiest as well. Let's start with a photo for the album:


Here's Tai Wai gulping down a bowl of 'sharkfin' soup...


Lee Sih and Sim Yee going full blast with their catching up...


Yee Teng and Yew Fon, as sweet as ever...


Peng Wai observing everyone else...


Weng Lok rebutting opinions...


I took catch-up pictures with Yuen Chai...


Tai Wai...


Yee Teng...


and also one with all the girls at the table...


Max saw this and wanted to take catch-up pictures, too. So he took pictures with Lee Sih...


Sim Yee...


as well as, Yuen Chai and I...


The other table came and join in our photo-taking frenzy...



Wai Kong was just happy to chat with Max...


The most enjoyable part of the night had to be the yumseng session. I swear that our table was THE loudest and exaggerated table there.

Dor, I am so happy for you! Here's to wishing both Darren and you all the best!
