Kuala Terengganu – Our Home

Again procrastination got the better of me. This should have been uploaded weeks ago.

But I guess this time procrastination does have it own advantages. The previous batch just left yesterday, so this morning, my room mate woke up early and he started cleaning the house. I woke up a little later to help him out (actually its a couple of hours later. Sorry~). >.< So because of procrastination, what you are going to see here today is a better, cleaner and a more organized house. ^^, Wahahahahaha.

This is what you see the moment you enter the house. ^^, Huge area to hang about and relax. ^^,P1070026

And this is what you see when I turn around to face the entrance. ^^,

P1070028

Lets move forward in the hall and look at what’s out there beyond the sliding window.

P1070029

Its a golf course. ^^, The view is really nice. All the greenery. Really good for relaxation.

This is the view from the sliding window looking back into the house towards the entrance. ^^,

P1070030

Looking slightly to the left. We got couches to laze around also. And we also have Astro. ^^,

P1070031

Going back to the entrance, if you turn left, this is what you see. Rooms are those with red doors while washroom are the light brown coloured door at the end of the hallway.

P1070032

This is the master bedroom. It has a bathroom in it also.

P1070033

Looking left, this is another room.

P1070034

And this is our room. Next to the toilet. >.< Opposite the kitchen. I am not going to show you our room today, because it is really messy inside. >.<

P1070035

This is the kitchen

P1070036

With the washing machine inside. ^^,

P1070037

Yup that’s basically our house. ^^, Quite comfortable actually. ^^, Till next time. Cheers~!

HOME

I have just watched this documentary last night and it is fantastic!

Thought I would like to share this with everyone here on the planet.

We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth’s climate. The stakes are high for us and our children. Everyone should take part in the effort, and HOME has been conceived to take a message of mobilization out to every human being.

For this purpose, HOME needs to be free. A patron, the PPR Group, made this possible. EuropaCorp, the distributor, also pledged not to make any profit because Home is a non-profit film.

HOME has been made for you : share it! And act for the planet.

Yann Arthus-Bertrand

In 200,000 years on Earth, humanity has upset the balance of the planet, established by nearly four billion years of evolution. The price to pay is high, but it’s too late to be a pessimist: humanity has barely ten years to reverse the trend, become aware of the full extent of its spoliation of the Earth’s riches and change its patterns of consumption.

More than a movie, HOME will be a major event all over the globe : for the first time ever, a film will be released on the same day in over 50 countries and on every format : movie theatres, TV, DVD and Internet.

On June 5th we all have a date with the planet !

11 Days In Penang – Day 5 to Day 11

Continuing from where I left off.

After the Cameron trip, I went for a fishing trip/Penang Hill/Movie on Monday with Nicki, Chicken Chop and Kiam Hu. No pictures of the trip because I did not bring my camera along with me. >.<

On Tuesday, I went to shop for my long awaited James Phelan’s book – The Blood Oil. Haven’t read it yet as I am currently reading Josh Grisham’s The Appeal. ^^, Can’t wait to read it though! ^^, I do recommend James Phelan’s books to fans of Clancy and Robert Ludlum.

After the book shopping, I went to watch X-Men Origins! It has been so long since I went into a cinema and it was great! ^^, The show is simply amazing!

And then on Wednesday, I spent the whole day with my Ah Mui to celebrate her birthday! ^^,

Happy Birthday~~!!

P1060599

Somehow when I take pictures, my expression looked kinda funny. >.<

P1060607

And then on Thursday, I went to Rasa Sayang hotel for a buffet dinner which cost RM96 bucks. Though it cost a kidney and a liver, the food tastes great! One of the best buffet I have ever had! Highly recommended. We went on Thursday, so its the International Buffet day. If you want to go for the Seafood buffet, go on Fridays and Saturdays.

Oh and I forgot to mention, the place is called Spice Market. I had a hard time finding it at first because Rasa Sayang is quite big and the displayed sign is pretty small. So I missed it when driving past looking for a parking. Asked the security guard twice and he wasn’t helpful at all. Ended up after a few trial and errors, I finally found it.

Thats me! Taken by Mandy. In fact, 90% of the following pictures are snapped by her.

P1060694

P1060695

I always love this kind of shots. Dark silhouettes.

P1060700

I know most of you must be thinking by now : “Show us the food already”. Patience is a virtue. ^^, We happen to arrive early so we walked around the hotel first.

P1060703

I remember when I was in Sabah, there is also a seaside hotel(forgotten the name) where there is also huts similar to this but slightly bigger which offers massaging services while you enjoy the scenery with a cool drink. What a way to relax! ^^,

P1060705

View of the setting sun. Amazing and captivating.

P1060707

And here comes the food! Its an International buffet, therefore there is Indian, Italian, Chinese, Oriental and Japanese food. They also have seafood, but only cold seafood. ^^,

P1060708

Veggies are good for you! ^^,

P1060711

Some wine? Every table has a bottle.

P1060716

We did not drank of course. It cost a bomb! Can’t remember how much exactly but around RM200 I think? >.< The red thing in the glass is strawberry jelly. It has a strawberry on top of it but I guess it went down into the stomach first. >.<

P1060717

Desserts. There are so many types of desserts. I did not even manage to try them all. But I did try the chocolate fountain. ^^, My first chocolate fountain experience!! Hahaha.

P1060724

Ice cream o ice cream

P1060726

Group photo!

P1060734

Entrance. Nice eh!

P1060738

Spice spice spice~!

P1060744

And then on Friday, upon my Ah Mui’s request, I took her around the island. Spotted this radio aid near the airport. I think this is a Doppler VOR. I have not seen a conventional VOR nor a Doppler VOR so close before. The only VOR I have seen is the Langkawi VOR but from 4100 feet, so it wasn’t so clear. But according to what I have studied, this does satisfy the description of a Doppler VOR. >.<

Just for those who are interested, Doppler VOR uses Doppler principle to reduce siting error (i.e error caused by its location) compared to a conventional VOR. For a pilot, it has no difference at all in the air. ^^, VOR = Very High Frequency Omnidirectional Radial and pilots use it for Air Navigation.

P1060778

One of our stops, the Butterfly Farm. Recommended to everyone who comes to Penang. Imagine walking in a park full of butterflies flying around you. Just be careful not to step on any of them. I also recommend Tropical Fruit Farm. It offers a really great fruit buffet but it only opens on weekends, unless of course if you have at least 20 people in your group, then you can go on weekdays.

P1060784

Yay! Peace! Plant more trees!

P1060785

What did I get for myself? Sunburn! T.T it wasn’t so bad but it does hurt. ^^, Now my arms have double tints. LOL.

P1060791

At my god-bro’s house. Camping for the night. LOL. God-bro and god-sis. Great people in my life! Definitely makes my life more colourful.

P1060799

On Saturday night. One day before I go back to Langkawi. Family dinner at Korea Palace. ^^, Nice food. Ordered a assorted BBQ meal. Look at the amount of food that we have ate. Dad & Mom on the left of the picture. Although only did manage to capture my mom’s arm.

P1060801

And then this is what Li Lene gave me in the morning. My University’s certificates

My fencing certificate. Committee for the UMS Open Fencing Championship. I also design the booklet for the competition which can be found here

P1060804

And this is the certificate that I am the most proud of! ^^, Nothing much but I am really really happy. This is for my second semester. Wonder what happened to the one in the first semester. I will go visit Sabah again next year after I graduate from my flying school. Hopefully I have the time….and money. LOL

P1060803

This is the medal I got many moons back. It was pinned to my Red Crescent uniform for a very long time before I recently decided to take it down and keep it properly. ^^, Those were good times.

P1060805

At the airport on Sunday. 35 minutes to departure. ^^, I am missing my parents already. Coming to think of it, it has been some time since I spent time with them. Before my sent off, I was busy in the uni and now here I am, training and again busy. Hmmmm…

P1060806

Anyway thats all there is. Now that I am in my CA2 phase already, I am one step closer to my dream of flying high up there in the blue skies!

Back Again… In Langkawi…

Well I am back here again in Langkawi. One week of holiday in Penang is definitely not enough but then again I am glad, better something than nothing right.

One week is extremely short and I have waste no time at all! Been busy eating, buying stuff, meeting friends, collecting ang paus and etc etc, but mostly, its about eating >.< Food in Penang has this special effect on a human – when you set your eyes upon it, you cannot escape from it anymore! You have to work your mouth! Chew chew chew!

Anyway, from the midst of all the chaos, I still manage to take some pictures to share with you peeps. ^^,

First is this super huge present I received from my all time best friend – Samantha! Cookies for anyone who can guess what it is….

P1060292

And another beautifully wrapped present received from my piggy god-sis >.< Cookies also for those who can guess what it is.

P1060319

This is what my brother brought back. A 12 year old Black Label and a Imperial. ^^,

P1060318

And this is my piggy god-sis and me. ^^,

P1060277

My god-bro and me.

P1060284

The three of us. ^^,

P1060287

And the most precious of all! A family picture! It has been a long time since we took one! A very rare chance for me and my brother to be back together. ^^, Happiness!

P1060316

^^, Tomorrow I will start my CA6, so today will be the last day I can relax. After today, its BATTLE!!! ^^,

But before I go, let me wish everyone A Happy Prosperous Chinese Ox New Year! Drive safe, eat more, laugh non-stop, enjoy the company of families, get/give more ang paus, don’t mess with firecrackers – burn them the way they are meant to be burnt and remember to buckle up at the rear seat! You don’t want to be giving “ang paus” to the police during Chinese New Year! ^^,

Visiting Grandma

Today my parents plan to go visit my grandma back in Parit Buntar which is about 45 minutes drive from Penang. Our journey started at about 1pm after having our lunch. And the journey is actually quite smooth until when we are about 20km out from Jawi exit that our car start to experience some loss in engine power and the engine start to sputter and vibrate every time my dad step on the accelerator. My first assumption was that we ran out of fuel. But then I remember that i just refueled 2 days ago. So I thought fuel leak?? But the fuel indicator still points at the half tank mark. So then I thought we might have fuel contamination. But again I rule it out because water sinks in fuel so if there is contamination I would have experienced it yesterday or in the morning when we first start the car. Then my dad suspected that it was due to electrical systems that our spark plugs aren’t firing as it should.

We only managed to maintain a speed of about 80km/h but luckily after about 1 minute I saw a sign saying Sungai Bakap rest point 5km ahead. So I was quite relieved. And upon stoppping there we immediately try to figure out whats wrong. Me and my dad was at the front probing into the bonnet to see if there is anything out of place. And after some time checking the wires and the systems, we are happy that its all green and good to go, so we decided to carry on. But upon accelerating, once again we experience the sputtering. So I was liike, uh-oh. But we decided to carry on anyway because we are actually quite close to Parit Buntar already but in that split second, our car suddenly gain back its momentum and we continued on smoothly after that. God knows whats wrong. ^^,

So we reach my grandma’s place it was about 2pm and we were told by my grandma that my cousin actually went to Penang today to visit us. So it was uh-oh again. And immediately we gave our cousin a call and turns out they are already half way through to Penang.

So we sat down and I was chatting to my grandma then suddenly a call came. It was from my cousin and she asked us to fetch my grandma to Penang since it has been ages since my grandma went to travel due to her weak legs.

So my dad agrees and after resting for about 2 hours, we went to fetch my uncle and we head back to Penang once again. It felt weird to me though because we actually plan to go there till night but now we are heading back to Penang. My grandma looks excited too since it has been some time since she came to Penang and to our home. And oh the picture below is taken near my grandma’s house where the traffic light looks a little weird to me because instead of using a single green light, they decided to go with the triple arrow design instead. Doesn’t it cost more?? Beats me..

So we reach back Penang at about 5pm and we were waiting for my cousin to come meet us for dinner at home. So at about 630pm they came and after some chatting, we went for dinner at this restaurant at Farlim called Genting at 7pm.

When we reached the restaurant it was already packed with people but luckily we managed to find a table and my parents ordered 10 different types of dishes!! OMG!! And since it was really packed there, we have to wait for about 1 hour before food is served. But it was worth the wait because the food there is delicious and it wasn’t really expensive. One person only cost about RM20, so I think it was worth it!

Overall, it was a great day today but it just feels weird for me ^^,

Day 4 in Penang

Ok fellas. This is the fourth day back in Penang. And since today is a Monday, I decided to go to school to collect my long neglected STPM certificate and also to find some teachers and at the same time see how the school is doing.

Well there is a lot of changes in the school. Be it in the administration – there are a lot of new teachers, new faces everywhere. Or the physical state – the staff room is the most significant where there are new tables and also new sitting plan. Looks better also.

The one thing that never change is the spirit of SXI and also the discipline problem as usual.

One thing to note though when I went to school today. I saw one parent were shouting at a teacher like there was no tomorow. So I got curious and I went to ask Pn Ong what is wrong. And she told me that the boy’s father was called to school to be notified that his son pushed a prefect in school during recess. Actually its after recess and the prefect blocked the toilet door because we are not allowed to go in when the recess ends for fear that we might skip classes. We can always come back later. But this boy chooses to push in instead and the father is angry because the prefect did not allow the boy to enter saying that its nature’s call so there is no reason not to let him go in the toilet. For freaking 7 years I study in SXI never once I had this issues with any prefects. I always go before the bell rings or come back later. Its how you manage yourself. Its a school rule so students have to obey the rules. I don’t see any reasons why the parent need to shout. Parents are not the rule makers. And it makes me wonder what kind of a parent he is and what example he is showing to his son. And also it shows the level of his mentality and how an educated person he is.

He demanded that the prefect apologies to his son. Really ironic.

I was once caned by my principal for challenging the head prefect. The rules says nobody should bring sweets to school but I challenged the head prefect saying that the canteen is selling sweets. So how is the rule gonna apply and I was canned. Although the rule seems funny but I know I was canned because I challenged the head prefect. I think if this were to happen today, it would have been made such a big news that the whole nation will read it on the papers. I think it is because of idiotic and ignorant parents that they pamper their children too much that today we face so much youth problems.

Ok sorry got off topic. ^^,
