A Fun Day Trip to KL For A RedBox Karaoke Session

February 22, 2012 at 1:30 PM

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 πŸ˜€ 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 πŸ˜€ 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, mushroom 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.

To KL & Back Again

October 4, 2011 at 4:08 AM

I went to KL yesterday.

It was a just a day trip but a damn tiring one. We planned to leave at 8 am but I had a very tiring Saturday so I ended up sleeping in the entire evening and woke up at 10 pm. I actually went to Tesco to shop at 11 pm and got home at almost 1 am. Haha.

We reached KL at almost 12 pm, then straight away went to bakery shops and bought lots of stuff – chocolates, cake mix, drinks etc. After having fun like a kid in a toy store, we went to Berjaya Times Square for lunch and reached there at almost 4 pm. Wow, I haven’t been there in ages because majority of things have changed especially the food court. It’s so much better now and the best thing is that it’s located on the lower ground floor instead of the lonely 10th floor. I had Japanese teriyaki chicken bento. Surprisingly they’re quite cheap. And you have to use a prepaid card to pay for the food.

It actually taste quite good too except I’ve had better chawanmushi before at Yoshinoya. I miss yoshinoya which is no longer available in Malaysia πŸ™ Their chawanmushi was damn good – they had mushroom and crabs but then they toned it down but the price remained which upsets me. Now they’re completely gone. Blah. This chawanmushi had only 4 small pieces of crab sticks, that’s it. Bit disappointed.

Anyways, then I went to ‘Low Yat Plaza‘ and FINALLY bought myself the laptop table I’ve always wanted. I think this is like the 4th or 5th table. It has low quality built but what the heck. I found exactly the one I wanted after a long search. I wonder how come they don’t have any tables in my city until I have to go to KL to search for it. I hope this one will last longer than the ones I had.

I also bought a new modem router because my old one finally died, I think. It’s a Belkin and they said I have a lifetime warranty but I’m not gonna claim the warranty because it’s pretty outdated. Now I have a better modem router (D-Link) and it’s cheaper than Belkin. It’s working fine now and I finally can use my streamyx again. Even though I had streamyx so much because it’s so slow, at least it doesn’t have limited bandwidth. Unlike my P1 Wimax, even though the speed is good, but I only have 30Gb bandwidth a month. I wanna play second life again.

So we finally left KL at 6.15pm and got stuck in traffic jam for a bit. That’s one thing I don’t miss about KL – the massive traffic jam. But luckily after a while I accidentally found the highway back to Ipoh so we didn’t get delayed and left for Ipoh. However my uncle thought we’d visit a relative – we got lost and spent over an hour to search for the place only to find out they were not at home. :\ I was already too tired and sleepy and I had to stop at 2 different rest stops to take a quick nap. Plus it was drizzling so it was like a perfect weather to sleep.

Well I finally reached my home at almost 12 am. Had to speed a bit otherwise I’d fall asleep in the car. I was really sleepy and tired and my right knee was hurting like hell. Thank God there was no scary experiences on the highway like the last time except a couple of minor ones in Kl where I almost drove my car to hit other car. My mistake.

I spent the entire day today sleeping wtf. I had to wake up at night to go to class but now it’s 4 am and I’m wide awake. Gah. Oh well.

Macaron oh Macaron!

July 29, 2011 at 8:33 AM

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 πŸ˜€

Last night when I was looking for bread, I found this! –

MACARON!!

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 πŸ™ I’m probably gonna spend a long time at Kinokuniya. Then back to Ipoh. Alright gonna go get ready now.

Merry Christmas 2010!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

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.

 

Back from Camp

November 27, 2008 at 8:50 AM

I’m back from camp! … and still in one piece. Yay.

I wasn’t expecting much from the camp, and wasn’t looking forward to it but it turns out to be one of the best experiences in my life.. and it was so friggin fun. If I can do it over, I definitely would… I am so glad I went. Even better because my good friends were there too, so I wasn’t all alone like a retard like how I always am at camps that I’ve been to. I didn’t do the physical stuff due to my health condition but I did the others that didn’t require physical stuff. The trainers were awesome too, even though strict lol.

I’ll write about it later today (it’s gonna be hella long — 3 days worth of stuff to blog about) if I’m done resizing pictures, after I’m done blogging about the art showcase thing..need to resize those pictures first too. I’ll do them later.. I’m not tired anymore but my legs are sore, and my throat hurts so much and I’ve lost my voice… probably from screaming too loud at camp. I think I have tonsillitis again, urgh.. but as long I don’t get a high fever and a chain of unpleasant sickness that lasts a week, I’m fine with it.

Gonna play my DS Lite now.. I MISS IT!
