the real great holiday post

so where do i begin??

why, with the commencement of HOLIDAYS of course!
(i really wanna blog about australia… procrastination and the busy hols have got the better of me. i really wonder if i will ever ever ever get around to it :( let’s clear these hols out of the way first eh?)

 

had to stay back for a couple of things so i was in pj for a bit after the finals…

 

here we are at this korean place in ss2 called ‘korean house’… how absolutely unpredictable! :D

shirhwa n kyying nomming away.

we were pretty much the only customers they had at the time and there were a bunch of waiters that looked more burmese than korean (as is the case with ko hyang. bleh) and they all sported white starched shirts, bowties and big friendly smiles. sometime into the lunch, they disappeared one by one and when we asked for the bill, the waiter who was previously all mr. starchybowtie came out in a singlet and surf pants… complete with tattoos. all that was missing was his surfboard wth.

but the food was yummerz and i wanna go back there again :D


then we hopped down to sunway when we had a free day to ourselves…
it was all really vague and planned but unplanned. ended up bringing both socks and a swimsuit because i wasn’t entirely sure whether we were gonna end up skating or slip and sliding in sunway lagoon. speaking of which, i haven’t been since i was a kid!!! something always comes up when anyone plans a trip :(

lunch at canton-i

IMG_8798

siokhui n shirhwa with this very canggihly named tea. as usual, i have forgotten what it was. 
but it’s pretty, is it not?

image

and then us with the customary dragon fruit juice which is slurpyums…

IMG_8801

trying to utilise the mirrors they had…
and by the way, i am not going back to canton-i ever again. took me a couple of lunches/dinners to realize this but the food is ridiculously overpriced, their noodles are meh and the congee is gross la like eating starch only. their only saving grace is the cute piggy buns (i tried to find the pic of them but my Pictures folder is one big mess. need to reorganise!!!) but even those are hardly worth the price.

image

took photos at some promo thing going on.
[cringecringecringe]

image

proof that we ended up ice-skating instead of lagoon-ing.

i’m actually pretty good you know! i don’t know why, but i don’t really mind skating mindlessly in circles with the 100 odd people. i still can’t brake though :( almost made it through without falling but was dragged down into a heap on wet slush :D it was fun.

then dinner at papa john’s

image

which was not bad. they had these weirdass pepper pickles.

 

then erm the bunch of us crashed at midvalley
(i think i’ve been to midvalley ten times as often as i’ve been to jusco s2 this last year o.0)

image

the sixth-formers chilling at secret recipe cause i wanted cake.
we somehow drifted towards each other at the beginning of the first sem of first year like flotsam and jetsam in a whirly current… i’ve no idea why but i reckon it has to do with the whole culture shock we experienced. it was quite horrible at the time (for me anyways). lol. i guess what doesn’t kill you does make you stronger… or more tolerant to a myriad of nonsense at the very least.

group shot after a midnight movie.

2012.
crazy a lot of people. the line at gsc almost made a full circle around the circular balcony thing… at noon. about 10 shows were sold out already at that time. mad crowded. i think 95% of the people in the queue were buying 2012 tickets because they even had to announce the full shows to send people still in queue away… gotta say it did live up to all the hype and contemplative fb statuses! all throughout the first half i kept going ‘omg this is so awesome they were so right i can’t believe this is such a great movie what if i die tomorrow?!?!’ and then it kinda went downhill from there.  i grew a lot less contemplative and awed after people started to get saved repeatedly, building after collapsing building and land after swallowing land… you gotta let someone die! the hot russian pilot doesn’t count, he’s obviously just eye candy (and a job well done, i say!)

btw, after much thought and weighing of pros and cons, i will now be taking TBER1307 RUSSIAN CULTURE AND ARTS! i think. at least that’s the plan for now. super ganjeong cause i was repetitively refreshing the ‘Senarai Kelas Elektif Luar yang masih ada kekosongan’ since a couple of days ago and then *poof* these 2 places appeared so i scrambled to log in and register but misspelled my password twice and then had to drop 2 courses to make way (long story) and when i finally did submit the code for the umpteenth time, they came up with some malfunctioning webpage. T_T ganjeong die. thanks to plh, found out all i needed to do was to switch to the english version of the webbie and they lived happily ever after. the end.

edit to add: they did not live happily ever after yet. tell ya’ll some other time when things have settled.

ahem. where was i? oh ya… plus you can’t very well have every other character in the movie tearfully calling their loved ones and having sweet sorrowful conversations! (i’m ashamed to say i cried at almost every phone-call T_T and when the president died and when the indian family was tsunami-ed and when… okay enough.) it’s just very passe after the 2nd one.

 

next up, failed to garner enough people and a ride to broga hill which has since become quite a fad. i think there are at least 5 broga hill albums on fb from entirely different cliques. –_-

so, uh, this is us after the movie.

image

lol.
trespassed at the nice new toilet near the science faculty in the middle of the night and took this piss shot. we are quite salah, i don’t deny :D
the ladies was still under construction but i’m thinking it’ll be really nice when it’s done. has this whole open air vibe with plants and stuff behind the sinks… a tad bit reminiscent of the singapore zoo toilet! but i’ll probably not be going there anytime soon, what with it being in the middle of nowhere.

compensating for the missing broga hill hike with yet another hill :D bukit cinta! 
so named (i’m guessing) for it’s infamous empty streets ideal for parking cars and doing naughty things in… or maybe just enjoying the night breeze on a romantic stroll? haha.

image

well whatever it is, we didn’t catch any action. drove here as opposed to last sem where i walked, crazy a lot around um with a bunch of lovely people who are somehow dangerously fading into oblivion :(

    image

at any rate, this bunch is equally lovely in their own mad bouncy ways :D

we traipsed around aimlessly until nearly 4am and we almost went for the 4am currywantanmee (which is a stall which opens only at 4 and is often sold out by 6. don’t ask me why the lady decided to open shop at such an ungodly hour in the first place, but she’s obviously found her niche!) purposely woke up at a later date to nom at this quaint stall and it was fab! or it could be because we were all starving… either way, it was fab!

 

then i got back to lil ol’ seremban…

 IMG_9120

only to head back up again with ell a few days later.
that’s her dashboard right there, with the whole eclectic deco going on.
guanyin, teddy, mittens and a cross… none of which has anything to do with the other. lol.

IMG_9097

crashed at jess’s, helping her mess up her room
…as is the ritual :D
(well i speak for myself here cause ell’s a neat freak)

IMG_9082

ebizai was fresh home from down under!

DSCF8731

fugubi was terribly sick though…
so we went to get meds (and MC) with her so she could come hang with us! hehe
it was a legitimate medical leave okay! she really was sick. swear.

ended up wandering around the gardens after lunch…or was it dinner? at sushi zanmai, another place i will cease to visit as often after my previous phase of adoration and craving. it somehow doesn’t taste as good anymore…
landed ourselves soon after in the land of cute-useless-things aka action city!

DSCF8738

     with the life-size domokun omg so damn cute!
hughughugx

DSCF8739

natalie and jess
i love this pic! it’s beyond cute :D
both very doumai-ly bought sets of miniatures.

this trip was mostly lan-ing in the leong residence… one activity i do best. haha. especially since fugu’s bed has a somewhat consistent soporific effect on me.

IMG_9143

then finally home in the CLK (of the lame abbreviation variety) 
the evening sky was glorious, the diamond studded highway was lovely and my camera does nothing to capture the essence of all that was.

 

home again!

what’s changed?
ju was briefly enamoured with the neighbour’s new, old beagle.

IMG_9159

who was a darling bitch but went mad at the sight of the catses.

IMG_9165

ju and the beagle

 

then came the start of the reunion spree!

IMG_9229

with the ixora girls (my form4 and form5 class was ixora, it’s not that i particularly like ixoras)
had a fun time chatting at janice’s and catching up!

 

later vroomed off to lcct to get am am back from aus.
on the way, there was a rainbow!!!

IMG_9238

couldn’t get a better picture of it, but it was a whole quarter of a circle!
i don’t think i’ve ever seen a full rainbow…

we got there and her flight was missing from the arrival board. ganjeong-ed die because she took quite a while to come out. lol. but all is well and am is home… kept up the ongoing tradition of dinner at daidei!

ermm… then am, ell and jw left for singapore and abandoned me in seremban to rot. sob

so that’s exactly what i did.
lots of drama watching :D finished a season of ‘house’ and ‘you’re beautiful’!,
lazed lazed lazed,
took pictures of copulating dogs,

IMG_9247

hahaha damn hilarious. at one point there was a third dog standing between them like a judge but i was too slow.

and made hair accessories!

  IMG_9290 IMG_9379

damn, i’m talented.
bwahahaha.
later realised the peachy nude twins look like i’m growing mushrooms outta my head from the front. bleh.

IMG_9449

the gorgeous yeanyee,
still ever so mental :D

IMG_9445

and the whole lot of us ixorians! well, ones who made it anyway…

btw, never going back to the rasah curry leaf ever again!!! service was terrible; people forgot orders and it seemed like the only one working was the boss. there weren’t even that many people there and everything took ages! they used to make such good food. i ordered maggi goreng and it tasted like someone tipped the whole salt shaker in. horrible. [gag]

 

(are you tired of reading yet? cause i’m no where near done)

bonus picture.

IMG_9465
