I went back to KL/PJ yesterday for a day trip. I went there to see my friends, one of them is about to leave to London again. I miss hanging out and just wasting time walking in shopping malls with that girl. <3
I had a lot of problems planning my trip. It’s because I thought my uncle has gone to KL already and I have no one to send and pick me up to the train station. Taking a cab is SO EXPENSIVE. RM15 for a trip to my house that’s just a few minutes away? No way. So it was a tough time planning until night time when my uncle finally called and he said he didn’t go to KL. Yay. And he’s willing to help pick me up. So that’s settled when another problem appeared – train tickets. Luckily I went to buy the tickets at 7 am for the 8.30am train and it was available. I also booked a return trip ticket for 5.35 pm. So everything is settled. Off I went to KL!
Of course I went with the ETS train. I got a window seat on coach A.
OMG the ETS train finally stopped playing Tom & Jerry on repeat! They played one of my favorite childhood movies ever – Little Giants! Too bad I couldn’t see clearly from where I was and there was no sound.. the last time I was on ETS train was April 2011 I think.. it was almost a year ago.
My meal on the train I haven’t had their ‘nasi lemak’ in ages.. I loved it. Particularly because the chicken rendang is just meat, no bones.. and it was delicious. Expensive meal, but delicious. The meal cost me RM8 something. It’s okay. It’s been one year since I last had the ‘nasi lemak’ so what the hell.
I reached KL Sentral at 10.35am, straight away took the RapidKL LRT to Taman Bahagia, then took at cab to The Curve which cost me only RM8 I was supposed to meet my friends for a karaoke session at 11.30am but I reached there at 11.10 am which was surprisingly earlier than I expected! I went to Daiso for a bit, bought some stuff then rushed to RedBox.
They had the special lunch hour rate which includes set lunch for RM12++ per person so that was really affordable! We had this HUGE room for 3 people which was really nice. We had ample space for dancing haha
We had this creamy spaghetti (carbonara?) that came with a gigantic plate and lots of chicken, mushrom and prawns. It was really delicious. My friends ordered lychee drinks while I had the orange drink.
I didn’t take many pics because we dimmed the room dark, and my phone was on low battery so I had to leave it to charge. My friend started singing and it was quite awkward at first but once we got the groove on, oh man did we all go crazy. I think due to the song selections which we mixed with oldschool 90s and latest hits, and the room sounds like a club, we started dancing like crazy haha. It was so much fun! I haven’t had this much fun in ages! Also turns out we had the room from 12pm to 3 pm instead of 2 pm we thought at first, which gave us a lot of time to sing and dance and go crazy! I love these girls. It’s a fresh and nice change of atmosphere from my stuck up pretend goodie two shoes colleagues at work.
I was singing my lungs out until I got sore throat and almost lost my voice. Had to really release all the stress. Total bill came up to around RM41..so technically it was RM14 per person. Not bad at all for 3 hours of unlimited songs inclusive lunch! Alas, at 3 pm we had to leave. Said goobye to my friend Aznita and my friend Claudia and I just walked around in Cold Storage until we had to leave at 4.30 pm. Then I took the LRT from Kelana Jaya back to Sentral then back on the train to Ipoh.
That was the end of my trip. Overall I had a very fun day at karaoke that I very much needed. I’ve been in a lot of stress and tension lately with problems here and there so it felt really good to just let loose for a while, even though for only a short time. Fender bassman 250.
I am in KL/PJ now. Haven’t been back here for months. Yesterday was hell because I drove from 8 am straight from my hometown in Ipoh to Melaka and reached at about 12 pm or so. It was the first time going long distance with my new Kia Forte car and boy, it was awesome compared to my tiny Kancil that served me loyally for 5+ years. The best thing was the ‘auto cruise’ feature that allows the car to move on itself without me having to keep my feet pressing the pedal. I didn’t think that feature is such a big deal but trust me, if you’re like me, it IS! I’m glad I chose Kia Forte 2.0 which has that feature. Because of that, my legs weren’t tired.
In Melaka, we visited my uncle’s friend, talked in her extreme hot house, then went cruising in Melaka. It was very tiring but I did get to buy lots of chocolate moulds! I went crazy. I can go back home and go crazy making chocolates. Then drove back to PJ and missed an exit and got stuck in massive traffic jam! I reached my apartment at 8 pm only to find out that there was no electricity and water, wtf. So had to find hotel room and luckily we found one
Last night when I was looking for bread, I found this! -
Ok, so it’s the current craze.. these sweet french cookie is so awesome! They got such nice ‘feet’ on the macaron.. I tried to make them but it was such an epic fail but I will not give up. Today I’m hunting for more.. I know cupcake chic sells them now so I’m gonna go crazy and buy them and get some cupcakes as well.
After that I’m gonna go to KLCC and hunt for some.. would be super expensive though. I have no time to go anywhere else though I’m probably gonna spend a long time at Kinokuniya. Then back to Ipoh. Alright gonna go get ready now.
Get your equestrian riding apparel here.
I came back from KL last Thursday and arrived safely at about 7pm. Then I realized that I left my Astro smartcard in KL and so until I go back to KL which is most probably during my convocation in mid-Jan, I won’t be able to watch any TV! No Christmas movies/shows or New Year’s. FML. Oh well. At least I have my media player and I can still watch stuff on TV.
I went to Jusco today and God it was crowded as hell. My friend was wondering why the roads seemed empty.. turns out half of Ipoh went to Jusco :\ Well, compared to few years before, Ipoh has changed, a lot. It’s almost becoming a busy city like KL. I guess it’s because within this 2-4 years a lot of new buldings and homes built, it’s no longer a peaceful city as it used to be.
My wireless keyboard and mouse aren’t 100% responsive. Maybe I need to buy batteries, better ones and not the cheap ones from Giant hypermarket, There’s a lot more to write about but I’m too tired and sleepy now so I shall watch some movies then sleep.
I’ve been back from my 3 days vacation since last night. I thought it was gonna be shit but it was actually not bad. It was actually a very relaxing place, and I’ve been reading bad reviews about the resort/apartment and I didn’t have any problem. Glad I didn’t listen to the reviews or else I would’ve missed it. Too bad it was short. I wish it was a longer vacation. I will write a full detail post soon.
One best thing was the cookies. I had the yummiest cookies sold at the hotel. I wonder if I could get different cookies that taste the same here. I had so much cookies, and junk food that I think I gained. Screw you if you say I’m fat because I know I am and I will sit on your face and crush you with my fat ass.
Yes I am not in a good mood. Haven’t been since I got back home last night. It also depresses me that when i’m depressed I tend to binge on whatever sweet fattening food I can find. I need a fucking distraction asap. I want something like lipofuze (www.lipofuze.net) or a Wii… or PS3 or Xbox 360 with lots of exercise or dance games so I can move and lose weight. Even though I’m still far from the weight I was at 5 months ago I’m still worried I would be again. Well off to do something else now.
