I was supposed to blog about this when I came back from Malacca last week but I was so lazy that I just uploaded and edited the photos into my laptop. Laziness ain't fun for sure. I have been
lazing relaxing for a week plus that my brain gets a little rusty and worst of all, I am NOT done with my homework. I am so dead. Tomorrow is class and homework day. NOBODY shall disturb me except during dinner maybe.
By the way, this Malacca-Seremban trip is my very FIRST trip with 20 cents. I was really excited about it because we made plans to visit places way back then and FINALLY it realized. Though it was a really short trip, it is always awesome to spend time with 20 cents. Some of our friends said we are more like practicing domestic abuse in the relationship. Hahaha..what's the fun in a relationship if you don't whack and tease each other? Right or not?
Back to the trip, we started our journey after our lunch in KFC and off we headed to Malacca. The journey was a blur because I was sleeping in the car. 20 cents was so bored driving in the rain. Sorry boyfriend!We reached Malacca in the evening and met up with Tean & Tracy. Then, we headed to town with an empty stomach for Satay Celup. When we reach Capitol (Satay Celup place), the queue was DAMN long. We went to the opposite shop to have some Teo Chew porridge, hoping the queue will fade but it didn't. The Satay Celup idea was scraped off.

So we headed to Jonker Walk for dinner. We ate from the beginning of the street till the end of the street. We had Laksa, Curry Laksa, Ice Blended stuffs, Grilled Cuttlefish, Cotton Candy and many other stuffs I can't recall. I think I ate a week supply of food in just a few hours. My tummy was so huge that I look like I am carrying triplets. Food food food! To add in the fats and calories, we packed Roasted Pork back to the condo and ate while watching Man Utd vs. Man City. It was a damn kan cheong match. 20 cents and his friends are screaming and all. I was enjoying the Siew Yuk because I don't watch football.

The next day came and we thought we could wake up early to line up for Chicken Rice Balls. We woke up late and off we ciao to Chung Wah for some authentic Chicken Rice Balls. The queue wasn't that long. We lined up only for 30 minutes. Hahahaha..The balls were damn GOOD. I give it double thumbs up! The chicken is just alright but the sauce was really good. The chicken was chopped in a way that it looked as if it was run over by a lorry. I am serious by the way.

I like these balls!

After our breakfast, we went back to Jonker Walk for some kuih-muih. I found my favorite Ondeh-Ondeh. It was so good. The Gula Melaka just explode all over my taste buds when I took a teeny weeny bite on it. It was really good. And we had this Yu Yuan, I don't recall the name of the dessert but it's located in front of San Shu Gong shop. The fishy cake has damn a lot of pandan kaya and it oozes out when you bite on it. It tastes even better when it's hot and fuzzy. Yum!Can they open a branch here in KL please??
Then, we walked to Donald and Lily Corner for some cendol. The cendol is like the best you can find in Malacca. The gula melaka was damn nice and they added in some sago into the cendol. We ordered some food too. We had Curry Laksa and Nasi Minyak with Chicken Rendang. The Curry Laksa is not so spicy and it's very very very very very very rich with coconut milk which might give an alert to my fats and heart department but it was way too good to resist. As for the Nasi Minyak, it's so soft and nice to eat with the rendang gravy. How can we all resist food in Malacca??

After that, we went to Dataran Pahlawan or is it Mahkota Parade. Whichever mall there is in Malacca for some FREE aircon. And and we had Shinlin Fried Chicken and McDonald Sundae Cone. I am not being bias but Malacca has better McDonald Sundae Cone compared to KL. The ice cream is much colder and creamier. Maybe I was really hungry that time..
Since we ate SO MUCH, we decided to burn some calories by swimming. I love swimming. I had my very FIRST pool slide ride and I fell on my bum. FML! Lesson learnt. I am way too OLD for baby pool. After swimming, we ate again. We had Cempedak by the pool side. The Cempedak was soooooooooo good. It was sweet and soft. I love fruits!
We rushed out after cleaning ourselves so we could line up AGAIN in Capitol for some Satay Celup cravings. To think that we are the first to arrive, we saw a huge ass long line that we lined up for 75 minutes! 75 minutes for food! I never line up so long for food in my entire whole life. The Satay Celup was nice to eat at the first 30 minutes but it gets so jelak after that I feel like puking back the soup back into the pot. I know..damn gross..but it's really filling. And I got allergy reaction after that because I am allergic to PEANUTS. 20 cents coaxed me into having Satay Celup saying that poison shall be heal with poison. So much for listening to him..
We lined up for 75 minutes!
with 20 cents at the line
We went swimming again after Satay Celup to burn off the calories from Satay Celup. I think it didn't work at all because I am STILL fat. I even went into the sauna assuming it might burn off my fats but it didn't. Dinner in some random mamak in Klebang and that's NOT the end of my food journey.
We said goodbye to Malacca on Day 3 at 6am. Off we go to Seremban for breakfast. We had to stop in McDonald Drive Thru for some breakfast. And we are not even half way to Seremban. About 8am, we reached Pasar Besar Seremban for some breakfast again. 20 cents brought us to this damn nice Beef Noodles. It is very different from the ones in KL and it tastes even better. By the way, this Beef Noodle is dry. And we even have some authentic, simple Hakka Mee. The Hakka Mee is soooooo good that we packed it back to KL.
I was in a moving car at 7am. Yawn!
Beef Noodle in Seremban
Before we head back to KL, we stopped at the Siew Pau place for some food souvenirs. I can smell the Siew Pau miles away. The Siew Pau is nice and I didn't manage to try the egg tarts because 20 cents walloped mine. Hahaha..
It was indeed a very long journey and FULL one too. I never eat so much in my life. I think I am gonna stay away from Malacca for another 10 years. I have a fear for Malacca food now. Count me out in any Malacca road trip! I mean it..

I had a good day today. I woke up LATE as usual and went to church to serve in Sunday School. I love going to church on weekends because it always make me happy. I serve in Sunday School by the way. Children makes me happy hence me serving there.
It's been a month plus I am serving in Sunday School. I can remember most of the kids' names because I am rather attached to them. How can you resist the cute and innocent faces smiling to you everytime you greet them?
Today, I had an encounter with this little boy named Joel. He is only THREE this year. He used to come in crying because he didn't want to come for Sunday School but now he is so much better. He was seated with his good friend, Julius. So there was I, sitting with them while they were snacking on some biscuits.
Me: Joel, can I have one biscuit from you?
Joel shaked his head saying no.
I asked Julius.
Me: Julius, can I have one biscuit please?
Julius gave it to me.
I think it was peer pressure or what. Joel decided to give me one too after seeing Julius gave me one. Kids are just the cutest ever. I am not complaining. I got TWO tiny biscuits from the kids. I am blessed ok?
What I am really amazed with Joel would be his intelligence. The kids were doing coloring and I was looking after a table where Joel was seated. Kids being kids colored the paper with all sorts of color everywhere. Suddenly, Joel asked me to help him draw some shapes. I was thinking..shapes only what..he probably knew the basic shapes until..
Joel: Teacher, can you help me draw a hexagon?
Joel: Teacher, teacher..can you draw a TRAPEZIUM for me?
Me: errr..ok *amazed*
Joel: I want one more cylinder here.
Me: Ok. *still amazed*
I was really amazed with his intelligence. He is only THREE and he knows of shapes that I knew when I was in secondary school. Joel is definitely one amazing kid that made my day today. I am still in amazement that he knows more shapes than I do when I was three. I am so jealous. Hahahaha...
I am definitely looking forward to see the children again next Sunday :)

I haven't been updating much. Partially because I was DAMN lazy. The other parts were because I was sick without inspiration and I was away from town.
Sick until I cannot wake up and I am practically really sick. Doctor also said I should go see another doctor to check my allergy reactions and other problems that I might have with ENT (Ear,Nose and Throat). It doesn't matter much to me though I am supposed to avoid dairy, wheat and other products which I forgotten that doctor told me not to eat. I am getting better now though my tummy disagrees with me. I am gonna be OK!I have a feeling that I have a damn huge ass long list of allergies after I seen the doctor.
I was away in Malacca for a couple of days with 20 cents and his friends. After Malacca, I developed a fear for food. I tend to eat slowly because I no longer can overdose a particular food anymore. I usually can eat damn a lot but not anymore. Malacca will NO longer be my destination for food. I feel like puking looking at the pictures of Satay Celup or even thinking about it makes me puke. Eeewwww...
It's no fun to have bloated stomach filled with gas for the past one week. It's no fun trying to burp but failed horribly. I tried Eno but failed. I slept with bloated and painful tummy for nights. It wasn't fun at all. Thank God that I am getting better now. If not, I wouldn't know how would I survived this week of holidays.
I was hanging out with my Mom and baby sister earlier today. It was fun seeing them after months of not seeing them. I think I saw them earlier this month but still..I rarely see my family.
I probably will blog again when I am in the mood to blog. Hahahaha..laziness ain't fun either. Hahaha..

I am a tad more calm after what happened to me last Wednesday night. It was a good thing that I released the sorrows and stress I have in myself. I am feeling a little lighter but my weight is still the same. Don't ask!
Last weekend was a fabulous weekend minus me being sick and all. Nonetheless, it was a great weekend.
Saturday was Francis and Geri's engagement party. Headed a little early to help out. The party was a success. The detailed decoration on the tables and pretty lanterns everywhere just make you feel happy. The food was great and the best was the slide show presentation. I almost cry when I saw it. I felt so touched somehow. Hehehe..Francis and Geri, if you are reading this, Congrats again! I am looking forward to attend the wedding. :)
The detailed table deco
More lanterns :)
Sunday was church day. I was a little sad that I can't help out in Sunday School because I was sick. I quarantined myself away from the children. I attended the message instead. The message was a little bizarre for once. But it was good. After church, I slept my day and life away because of the medication I took. It made me drowsy. So drowsy. I can't even hear the phone.
Monday is my day off. I have no class on Monday. I always get long weekends. 20 cents decided to take me out for a nice outing. Slept till a little late in the afternoon. We headed to Sunway Pyramid for late lunch in Bar B Q Plaza. I always enjoy eating there. I like to grill my food with those lard. Hahahaha..
After lunch, we decided to walk around to do some digestion before *ahem* second round. We were in Asian Avenue Food Corner where I discovered a really familiar shop that sells FRIES!!I read it somewhere before in MYC magazine. Since the promotion stated RM2 for a small fries and a dip, I gave it a try. It's Belgian fries by the way.
Pommes Frites Bistro
This is how they cut the potatoes
Where do I get this machine now??
A huge range of dips
It's called Pommes Frites Bistro. Go give it a try. It's worth while. Something different for once. I had my fries with honey mustard dip. I kinda like it. Maybe I should go for second round next time I am there :)
The Belgian fries for RM2
With Honey Mustard dip
Had Starbucks for tea time. Hahaha..just chill there for a while before heading back home with a box of Takoyaki from Jusco. It was a nice day for me and 20 cents. It's been sometimes we went pak toh. Gosh, I miss courtship!
A picture of me and 20 cents after so long not taking picture at all
Oooh..I just found this picture I stole from Lil Zoe when we had our teeny weeny KSCB outing in SS15. Gosh, I miss everyone already! We should really hang out again.
Lil Zoe and me :)

I have been busy.
I was in Bible class just now. It was indeed a very interesting lesson about Holy Communion. I stayed back. I told my Pastor about the problems I had.
I have so much in my head that it accumulates in a large ball of problems. I kept it to myself because I don't like to share my issues with others. It's not like other will ACTUALLY listen nor even understand. I am often shunned away about how little and tiny are my problems. It seems that everyone else has bigger issues but me. To such people, my stress is nothing compared to theirs. Now I bet many would understand I prefer to be alone and stay away from as many people as possible. It's a choice I made and I am happy with it.
I received peace and calmness from Him.
Pastor prayed for me to cast away my stress and anxiety. Mr SA Tan has been dropping by a lot in my mind to play tricks with me. I know I will conquer him. I just need to be calm and plan my things properly. Most of all, I should slow down. I shall start by walking slowly instead of rushing into places. I shall think better if I slow down some things in my life. I need to learn more about time management. I seriously do..
I know I can do it with His guidance and help.
I was somehow randomly elected to be a leader for 20+ people in class for a workshop somewhere in October. I guess I was elected because I know most of the people in the group. It gave me a huge burden in me that I might not be able to do it. Deep down, I knew I could do it but I refuse to accept that because I have other subjects that I need to pay extra attention to. Both my Pastors said I can do it and I believe that I could. I shall seek Him for wisdom. I just need to be calm in handling my stuffs.
Anxiety was my middle name.
Did I mention that I somehow got a mentor that I dislike and I have to work with him? First impression was bad and so was the rest of other impressions. Just because he is nice to lecturers does not mean I would like him. I will make sure he would NEVER step on my head because nobody messes with me. At least, I have a great partner to work with. Hopefully this whole workshop will go smoothly without drama. I don't like to be in between of conflicts and dramas. It annoys the heck out of me.
Worship You I shall.
I wish I could solve many problems at once. I seriously do. I just wish that someone I knew and love would tell me things instead of me going through so much to know him. I seriously want him to know that I am not someone who reads mind. I love someone for who he is. I am no rocket scientist and I just want to know what happened to you. Please do tell me.
I think I should just take medicine and sleep now. I shall study later. I am way too tired to digest any information into my head. I have Accounting quiz in the morning. I know I can do this. I just knew because He whispers in to me.

I have been eating a lot hence the horizontal growth of mine. 20 cents and I always go makan with his coursemate and girlfriend. Our new makan kakis. It's fun to have friends who enjoy eating like us. I shall demotivate myself from food already. It's a damn good reason to not eat now.
I am sick. My nose runs too fast that I hardly could catch it. My head spins so fast that I thought I was training for space mission. My body feels damn cold though I was walking under the sun. I think I ate something wrong because I been visiting the loo a lot today. I am better now minus the flu part. It's killing me softly. It's no fun when my taste buds is bland. I took medicine and it made my throat dry and itchy.
I DON'T HAVE H1N1.
Chill. Just because I sounded like I have some of the symptoms. I am alright. I think it's my dusty room and the weather punya pasal. It's horrible to be sick when I want to get up for class every morning. I was sneezing nonstop in the bus and people got worried that I am infected by H1N1. Like what turf! At least, I don't have to stand in the bus.
I think I just killed a few trees. I consumed tissues like nobody's business. The fluid from my nose can't seem to stop. It's like my room is gonna flood soon if I don't control it with tissues. HLML?! And I have to go through cold classes every morning. The air conditioner is not doing any good to me. Deng!
Enough of myself. Let's talk about food!
1)Jia Mei Steamboat Place
Tracy told me about this damn cun steamboat and grilling place. So me and 20 cents decided to give it a try. It was RM20.50. Reasonable for the amount that we had that night. Four of us ate practically all the meat on the buffet line. Steamboat pot was ignored because it was way too fun to grill food. Hahaha.. I had a personal chef so I just sit and eat my night away. The amount of Ba Gua I had was like damn a lot. It was reasonably good and affordable. Shall visit there again soon :)

2) Yap Hin Restaurant
This particular restaurant is located in Serdang. Went there with 20 cents and his parents. Awesome Chinese food served there. We had Pork Knuckles and Chicken Feet. It was so good that I ate so much. I usually don't take Pork Knuckles because it looks damn gross with all the fats oozing out but this is exceptional. The next dish was the Steamed Sang Yu. It was another thumbs up. The fish has no muddy smell and it tasted really sweet. Then, we had Claypot Yam Chicken. Another thumb up for this dish. Simple but tasty. I think I finished my whole plate of rice that night.

3) SS2 Chicken Rice
I frequent this place so much that the owner of the shop recognized me and he knows what I want to order. This is like second to Ipoh Chicken and Bean Sprouts. The steamed chickens are damn awesome because the meat is tender and soft. It won't get stuck within your teeth. And the bean sprouts are FAT. It's just like eating the same from home. Gosh..I am craving for that now. It's cheap and nice. What more would I ask for?

4) 223 Mamak Place
I used to frequent this place a lot until I gained too much weights. But I found a new food there besides the usual I had. It's Rojak Burger. It's the meat with vegetables and sauce without the buns. It's damn nice wei. I should start eating like that since I never like the buns. Hahaha..a good cheap hawker food.
Look gross but it was damn nice :)
I think I am done with the food part. I did some cooking too. Maybe not some; more like a bit of cooking. I am gonna post it on my cooking blog soon :)
For now, I need to go out for dinner. Food again.
