新年之post

终于,我还是跟爸爸开车来玻璃市了...

哦不对,不是今天,是去年~哈哈!感觉上好遥远噢~

要不是他发出最后‘通牒’,我还真不知道什么时候才肯乖乖地拍拍屁股离开PJ回来这无聊的小地方...

不想回来的原因之一是因为我的奖学金面试烂透了,无颜面对Prof...

一趟攀岩让我了解了自己一点: "我不会轻言放弃"

所以,觉得好好走下去! 谁怕谁啊!? :)

*********************

新年对我来说也蛮平凡的,也就又只是过了一天~

这里也静悄悄的,没当一回事...

我倒比较期待农历新年的到来! 又有一位好朋友要结婚了!!

让我也有想结婚的冲动!! :p

**********************

跟朋友去打了一场羽毛球,还真的不能不承认自己老了...

隔天竟然跟我腰酸背痛!?

**********************

完成了不愉快的奖学金面试后,我的心情直接是跌到谷底。

不敢奢望自己会面试成功,毕竟我连跟谁要钱都不知道,成功的几率低得可怜。

父母,朋友和姐妹们都很体贴,一面倒地交我好好享受‘假期’。

希望回大学后不要给我听到一些 “表紧,你一定拿到的” 这类的鸟话。

要知道,如果听了那些话,到头来一场空的那种失落感,不是你们认为我可以承受得起的挫折啊~

我很惊讶于自己如今超级懦弱的性格... -__-

***********************************

接下来在PJ的日子也过得满快活的~

不敢讲‘充实’,因为都只是在花钱...

圣诞节那天跟一群瀑布发烧友去了金宝的瀑布。

要说好玩嘛,我没什么enjoy到咯...

路程太久太远,时间仓促,没玩到几下子,天公不作美,也发生了一些不愉快的事情。我又竟然拉伤了脚。

重点是,我发现我自己接受不到喜欢亲近大自然的人,竟然抽烟!!

我不是在歧视抽烟者,只是.... 唉,找不到适当词汇来解释...

也有不错的时候啦,至少也来得及进行瀑布水疗,爱到爆!

***********************************

星期六跟二姐的朋友去爬山了 - Tabur West。

爽爆了! 好久没有这样子流汗了。

尤其二姐的朋友们都是好动一族,有几个甚至是跑马拉松的,每个人都好有活力,好好玩。
跟一群志同道合的朋友一起去‘郊游’是件开心的事情! :)

只是行动上有些许不便,因为大腿的肌肉还在痛着,出不了太大的力。

当然,爬一趟山也带回了一些“纪念品” -…

Rock Intro Experience (RIE), Bukit Takun

Image
Another event deal decided a week ago through Waterfall Survivor; one of the activities parked under Learning Adventure; and it is also one of my most wonderful outdoor activities experience in my life :)

After registering, paying the deposit and kept in touch with the instructor, Chadel, I couldn't wait for the day to come!

Despite being a little tired and a little muscle ache from the Tabur West hike a day before, I was not reconciled to FFK and quit! :) Another reason was because I paid for the deposit liao... RM60 wei...

Since I don't know the way (and, yes, I was lazy to drive too), our instructor, Chadel, picked me up from 1Utama, and convoyed with Hafiz, the other participant, to Rawang.

Oh yes, by the way, there was three of us in the event: Participants - me and Hafiz the 'big liar'; Instructor: Chadel.

After signing the necessary waiver form, packed up gears and stuff, off we went to the challenge.

Bukit Takun is a rocky hill located at Templers Park, Rawang…

Tabur West Hike

Last Sunday, I joined part of Lim Erjie's Super Rookies gang's hiking trip to Bukit Tabur West, Taman Melawati, KL.

The hike started at around 6am because we wanted to chase the sun rise at the 'sun rise platform' or something like that.

Clever me, although the itinerary stated that headlamp is a MUST, still, I thought everyone brought it except me would be enough.

! BIG mistake !
I had to depend on the light of the person behind me to watch my way, and followed the footsteps of the person in front of me in case I mis-stepped to the wrong place. Summore those people who lead the way was the super 'geng' type, so they ascended faster than a speed bullet. -_____- Challenging...

Finally, ...


^We arrived!!

...but no any sign of sun coming out, haze and cloudy sky. No luck for us that morning as the clouds totally blocked the sun, the only thing could be seen was the rays 'struggling' their way out of the clo…

Batu Berangkai & Salu Waterfall, Kampar

Image
Christmas day celebration by waterfall, such a wonderful idea. :) Although I don't celebrate Christmas...

It was a trip deal between me and brother Chin, the uncle who has been luring me in joining the Waterfall Survivor Committee for some times, and I 'successfully' luring my sisters and a friend to join me along.

The location was at Kampar, and visited two waterfalls.

9 cars convoyed from Sg. Buloh overhead restaurant and headed towards Tapah toll exit.

Out first stop was Batu Berangkai Waterfall, located not too far from the toll exit, and the trekking part was slightly easy, except the narrow road part.

There's no trekking needed to arrive at this waterfall. The water is crystal clear, the air is fresh, it's just nice, except for the weather that fluctuates quite frequently, so we were advised to not swim.


^The spirit of taking nice pictures could never be ignored lah~ LoL stolen from Chin's FB album


^Group …

Outdoor Activities Are FUN!!

Image
Have been going out for outdoor sports and fun for 2 days. I didn't count the Salu and Batu Berangkai waterfalls trip as an outdoor activity though because it's more like a hiking challenge for my car, not me. For me, it's a 'MAKAN' trip :)

Tabur West hike was great! It's been forever since I last had such challenging outdoor fun. The wake-up-at-4.40am part was quite suffering, the ascending and descending part lagi suffer, but the scenery and knowing new friends pay it all. Friend thought I spent the rest of the evening sleeping, we went to sing K instead. Haha!

Rock climbing at Bukit Takun today was great too! It's something I done for the first time in my life, and the experience is priceless! There's 2 of us in the group: me and Hafiz from Negeri Sembilan (who works in JB), and Chadel as our instructor. I ended up with painful thigh, sore shoulder and arms, 2 leeches bite marks, and bruises and cuts all over my legs and some on my elbow.

Just in cas…

Christmas Eve Korean Food Fest in Dae Jang Gum

Image
The other day, Chai Ching wanted to try out Korean food, so we arrange a 'chang-toi-giok' dinner at a Korean restaurant in SS2, but it was too early that the restaurant didn't open yet, so we changed our plan to 大长今 Dae Jang Gum in Seksyen 14.

Since we were the first customers at the time (not even 6pm yet! :p Early dinner), and both of us were first-timers in a Korean restaurant, the waiter patiently introduced us the menu and recommended on how to order, what's the famous orders etc.

Flipping and tapping the menus for thousand times, we finally settled with 2 dishes of BBQ meat and a spicy seafood noodle.


^Sliced pork!!! Love the pinkish colour of the meat. Yum!

One nice thing about it was the cooking was done by the waiter and waitress, so we can just hold our chopsticks up and wait to attack the food! :)

Just seconds after we rambled about the overpriced dishes, the waiter and waitress served a full table of side dishes for the BBQ. There's about more-than-ten side …

The Interview Sucks

Image
Yesterday's interview was a tragic/dramatic one, because:

1. I used 30 minutes to go to Putrajaya from PJ, and lost in Putrajaya for 45 minutes. -___- Why on earth they don't want to use the almighty U-turns on the road system!?

2. The panels are 'obviously' not from engineering background.

3. Taking your First Degree and further your Master or PhD in the same university (note: applicable for the 'not-so-famous' public universities only) is not a wise choice (or so I interpreted from what the panel was trying to say). Or, in other words: You are either stupid enough to not choosing those prestige Uni; or your Uni sucks.

4. I'm a Chinese, I shouldn't have dark complexion, and my kelate sucks. (Yes, they DID say that. I wonder if it's because they're just too bored of all those presentation or ... 人身攻击?)

5. I failed to explain the novelty of my project in one nice sentence.

6. I can't answer who is the Minister of Science, Technology & Innovatio…

Sweats

I am super sleepy now but I need to wait for my hair to dry because it's not good to sleep with wet/damp hair (or so I heard) and I don't have hair dryer here at SS2 house.

Sweating is fun! Especially when I sweats from sports. It makes me 很有成就感 although the odor is not pleasant at all.

It's been awhile since I last touched my badminton racket. Blame me for being not 'open' enough to randomly join any badminton group in Perlis or Kangar.

The session was suggested by an old buddy friend. Asked the UniMAP buddies to join along, met another 'older' friend at court, Devince aka Ricky who I knew in LYN.

The badminton session was at a new place (for me at least), Sunway South Quay. Nice ambience, but the building structure was not to my liking, can feel the wind circling around the courts.

When I saw the crowd, I immediately told myself:"Gosh, I am so totally out of this Klang-Valley badminton world."

People who knew me through badminton, especially tho…

Activities and stuffs

Image
The main purpose of going to KL next week is for the NSF interview, but the rest of the time has been filled with activities and stuff! :)

Healthy activities though, like few badminton sessions, waterfall trekking and picnic in Kampar with the waterfall survivors warrior(FINALLY!), and rock climbing experience organized by the same group but I think conduct by different people.

Hehe I am so bloody excited! I've missed badminton for about a year, and my hands and rackets itch like hell; I'm a big big BIG fan of waterfall, Chin gohgoh introduced me the waterfall savior group months ago, and I always anxiously looking at their activities in my FB's Events tab but I couldn't join as I'm at the Far Far Away Kingdom; and rock climbing is something I wanted to try long long time ago, and to prepare myself for the KK trip next April.

AH I just can't wait! :))

Cheap Food + Home Alone + Crowded Cluster

Besides being a boring place, there's one thing I love about Perlis is the cheap food! Chinese food to be precise, zap fan literally.


^Both are RM3! Do you believe it?

2 veggie + 1 meat! Yum!

Auntie Hong came back home last Saturday for a wedding dinner, then off she went to her mother's house the next day and to Singapore that night.

Before she went off, she gave permission for me to use her motorbike too. Haha! So now I get to use her bike 'legally' and watch her Astro! :)

The other day, I planned to wash the filthy bathtub. It's quite odd about the filthiness of the water because it's different from any other kind of filthiness I've ever seen. (Helped Auntie Hong to clean the bathtub few times when she's not around)

When I took a scope of water, it freaked me.
