SEOUL GARDEN [
] - 29.7.2006 Saturday
No food related post for a long long time huh? This is because I have no camera and I didn't eat anything special these days. I went to Seoul Garden at 3rd mile for dinner with hmmm... friends... Ummm... not really friends, I don't really know them, they're Jimmy's and Pinky's net friends. I just went there for the sake of the food.
Haven't been there for ages... heard that it's bigger now. Indeed, it's bigger now, with air-conditioned section but the upstair was closed... maybe it's only for special booking. They have Korean BBQ now too or to be exact, grill.
WOW... Lately it's not only hazy but it's hot. Just yesterday Sarawak Club burnt down, this afternoon another fire incident again!! Why so many fire? Is it because the forest fires aren't enough and need some help from city fire to make it hotter? -_*
Jimmy told me in MSN that somewhere in Padungan, there's a shop on fire at about 3.30pm or so. I thought he was kidding, he asked me to go to my window to take a look. WOW!!! Thick black smoke but too bad, I don't have a camera at the moment and couldn't take the picutre of the smoke. Then, not long after that I heard fire brigade and police sirens. They were all rushing there. I'm wasn't sure where the fire was, the smoke can be seen so clearly and the sky was really cloudy.
He decided to rush out to Padungan from 3rd MILE!!! (This guy is really insane, just for the sake of his blog :P) just to take a glimpse of the scene and to take photos. So... the photos were taken by him. Remember you see the report and photo in our blogs *BLEK* first. The actual news report will be out tomorrow.
Should be posting this yesterday but didn't have much information about it until today. What's the big deal with that? If you are gonna ask me. Well... To many people... It's not a big deal because all these while people are preceiving it as a private club that only the rich and famous could step in there until it's burnt down then they realised that part of Sarawak's histories are gone forever with the fire.
This club has 130 years of history and it's a private club. It holds some important artefacts and history documents in there. The building can be rebuild but the history pieces are gone! I'm sure many people didn't know this and now that they know this and they all feel sad about it. Frankly, I'm kinda ignorant too, I didn't know that there are those history stuffs in there and it was no big deal to me until reading about it in forums and newspapers. I only went there once for a swim with my church's pastor and family hmmm... 10 years+ ago? Too long to recall.
I'm still busy with work. Take time out to relax. Got tagged by Ken so take this opportunity to do it.
10 years ago I was... 14... a form 1 student. Starting from that year, I'm not a top student anymore and my performance went down hill, very unexpected. I really don't know what had happened to me, I'm was slow in catching up stuffs and screwed up many of my exams. However, manage to be in the best class until the last year of my high school.
5 years ago I was... 19... started my college education at Informatics. I had my best years there. Being one of the top students and joined the college student club. Met my friends now and still stay in touch with them constantly compare to my secondary school friends. I had a whole lot fun there.
1 year ago I was... miserable most of the time because I started the year hoping for things to be nice and sweet but just days after the new year, I was hit so badly that it took me a long long time to get over it and did a lot of stupid things/decisions. Now... I'm still stucked in the sticky situations but I always tried to ignore it and go with the flow. *sigh*
Yesterday I was... in very bad mood and very sensitive. Also busy with works.
5 MOST RECENT SONGS I LISTENED TO:
Ummm... I never bother about the songs title. How?
5 SONGS I KNOW ALL THE WORDS TO:

RABBIT? IRENE? RABBIT?... [
] - 25.7.2006 Tuesday
Hehehe... desperate to be cute again :P The second picture's pose was directed by Chung Nien and Jimmy. Ewww... I'm not cute!!!
We were invited to try out cosplay at Haru's house last Sunday. She has lots of costumes however I didn't like any of them.
I did wear a costume of Sakura in Naruto but the picture was really ugly, I really don't know how to pose. Too stiff. Then, Jimmy spotted this rabbit ear heheheh... so I wore it for fun. I don't really like cosplay unless I'm asked to dressed up as a cute or pretty character with the pretty makeup, then I'll go for it. *BLEK* However, I'm interested to know who is into cosplay because I'm helping friends to do some sort of survey now.
I'm still busy with work... thought will be a bit free but then... suddenly works coming in again. Will be busy working again. Till then... take care!
KENWY MUSIC HOUSE - MUSICAL RECITAL NIGHT [
] - 22.7.2006 Saturday
WARNING: Sorry to dialup users... really a big post.
Ok... no more "sotong". I know it's very ugly ahhaha...
Let's get cultured! I'm not a musical person so ahahah... don't expect much from me. I went there because I was invited by Jimmy and the tickets were given free by his friend. Why not? Free ticket and never attend one before. There were RM10, 20 and 50 tickets. It's organized by Kenwy Music House and co-organized by Kuching Oriental Musical Group(I'm not sure about the correct name of this, I just translate it word by word :P, there's no English name or anything for it and it's all purely conducted in Mandarin). It's held at Kenyalang Movie Theater.
People "act cute", I also "act cute" and it turned out NOT CUTE! I'm really not the kind to "act cute".
I noticed that from my photo archives, these are the only "act cute" pose I have because I only know how to do this.
I'm being called "sotong" (octopus in Malay language) because of this. Couldn't find cute octopus with this kind "pose" on the net, found it years ago but now couldn't find any. So hard to find and not much time to hunt for it. Just a quick update. Still very busy with work.
KFC MELTZ [
] - 19.7.2006 Wednesday
KFC is introducing a new product called Meltz. It's cheesy BBQ toasted tortilla. It has chicken chuncks, tomato cubes, BBQ sauce, cheese and nachos in there. I thought they will have set meal for it but NO... it's sold as an independent item. It costs RM5.70 exclude tax.
Actually they're here since last week but I was kinda busy and even till now haven't really finalise which to be printed. Very hard to make decision too although there are many that can be eliminated easily because :P I'm not good in posing, I'm reserved and I'm shy in front of ppl's camera hehehe... However, there are also those that need to be looked at carefully to ensure only the best will be chosen and worth the money I had spent.
Don't be disappointed, there is only one towel shoot that I will show you because there're only 4 of them and this is the best though there should be better ones that he did show to me on that day. The rest he didn't give it to us for proofing because according to him, they don't fit. Don't know what he meant but he's the professional and I have to respect his decision. I did request him to let me see how's the result turned out at his studio. If he declines, well... I have to respect his professionalism even though I'm the one paying . He's the pro, if he thinks that it's not fit, then it's not fit. Only the unpro will dump everything to you without caring what's fit and what's doesn't.
WARNING!!! I'M SORRY FOR DIAL-UP USERS , THIS POST IS REALLY BIG!!! THE TOTAL SIZE OF IT IS ALMOST 1MB... VIEW AT YOUR OWN RISK.
My oh my... I'm so busy with work and have no time to update anything about the wedding reception. By the way, the haze is coming back today... no wonder my nose is so itchy.
It's held at Matang Terrace, Hilton, Kuching, Sarawak. It's an outdoor recpetion. Luckily no rain but it's so hot and humid. We reached there before 6pm, thought to find the bride and groom at their room but they were't back from Alvin's yet. Therefore, we went to the Matang Terrace to take photos and survey the place first. It was so windy! We were so happy summore we got such a nice spot where we can see the stage clearly and it's just along the aisle for the bride and groom to make their grand entrance. Table 20, was our table.
More about the wedding reception here...

] - 9.7.2006 Sunday
I'm not sure when I'll be updating the rest. I'll blog about it in parts. As you can see from the title. We(Lee Ling, Audrey and I) reached Ann's house at about 9.30pm. Hui Yee couldn't make it because she was sick and need to get enogh rest to go tru' tomorrow.
Left: We helped her to change her bedsheet before discussing tomorrow tricks on the guys.
Right: The corsages.
Left: The balloon from Pinky to Ann.
Right: Ann's hand bouquet.
We called it a night at about 11 something. However, all of us couldn't sleep well... it's so hot even with the air-con was on with 16 degree Celcius, Ann and I slept in one bed... it's the newly-wed's bed and with the new sheets!!! I "opened ceremony" first hahahaha... I didn't sleep much, I'm more like napping than sleeping. More to come... have to sleep now, tired... Next post will be about the DAY.
Will be busy this weekend because it's Ann's custom wedding tomorrow. We had to get up at 3am to prepare -_-" I'm her bridesmaid.
Will be going over to her place to sleep later on. ;-)
There will be a dinner reception tomorrow night at Hilton. It's going to be an outdoor reception... With the weather so unpredictable... Hopefully will not :-x cannot so "suay"... :P
Picked up my dress at Alvin's today. Will be updating about the wedding for the next few days provided I've done my works because I have heaps of projects lining up and I can't do it this weekend, so have to resume my work next Monday.
Most probably the update about the wedding will be delayed a bit but will make sure it's up within next week. :) Enjoy your weekend! See ya! Take care!
TAIWAN SIAU JOU [
] - 4.7.2006 Tuesday
Hehehe... my mom forgot to cook so we went out for dinner. We went to Taiwan Siao Jou, situated next to Hong Kong Noodle House at Padungan. Wow... it's packed, I mean this shop, not the noodle house. It seemed like their business didn't get affected by the big noodle house next to them. Not bad... This is my second time here. The first time was last year if not mistaken.
What do you think of this scene? FYI, it's all the stray dogs at my area. Before we go into details, here's something that you might be abled to give a hand in: [MORE]
I'M SELF OBESSED!!! [
] - 3.7.2006 Monday
Heheheh... due to popular demand (*BLEK*... as if I'm so popular, so thick face), here's my photos I took on 29th June 2006. It's not by Alvin but myself. Also a few from Jimmy. As for photos that Alvin had taken, I'm not sure when will it be available for online proofing so will have to wait, maybe 1-2 weeks for it to be readied. By then I'll post some of them here. NO... NO... Don't expect me to post them all hahaha... I'll only past those that I'll be developing. Some of them are quite personal(remember I said we were playing with the towels? Hehehehe... Now... Now... don't think so much, you'll know what I meant when it's out, don't get too excited LOL). So... here you go... The photo is about 160+kb, it will take a bit long to load... be patient...

M'SIA CHINA FRIENDSHIP PARK(2) [
] - 2.7.2006 Sunday
However, at the end, not much of my photos were taken. Instead we took heaps of photots of the garden. I did cam whore a lot though... This is because, it's hot, the sun was high up in the sky shining mercilessly and baking every inch of our skin and my eyes could hardly open. We thought that there won't be anyone there or at least only a few. It's only 3pm++ in the afternoon, there're already so many people there!!! They were as insane as us LOL! Beating the scorching sun, they were there to rest/relax in those shades/huts but we were busy shooting photos. I'm sure they think that we are crazy enough to take photos at hour like this. Hahaahhaha...
Today's dinner is steamboat. It's to celebrate the marriage of Alysha and Mei because on the day of registration, all of us were busy and have to no time to have a meal together. So... today is the day. We had it at It's Kitchen. It's a new place for steamboat in Kuching. We reached there around 6.45pm. LOL.. I think we are such crazy bunch of ppl, such a hot weather, the heat is unbreable but we still have BBQ steamboat ;p [More]
