1 week rendevous getaway to Bangkok and KL - Part 2

Back from Bangkok, 1 day rest, followed by KL trip. Short family getaway decided on a very last min. Without unpacking much, we set off on Fri morning to KL.

Our hotel room with my marked territory (see my beanie star?)

After a near 6hrs bus ride, we arrived at our Hotel in KL. Hotel was just alrite (after the experience of Sheraton, u just can't compare). After unpacking and marking my territory with my beanie star, we headed off to Petaling Street (a.k.a. Chinatown). Yes, more food to come. Drank the famous Luo Han Guo, ate the famous Koon Kee Wantan Noodle, sampled the Ah Po Mua Chee, and walked off the food before heading for claypot rice with side dishes of spicy stingray, sotong and veges.

Eye on Malaysia

After a stomach bursting dinner, we headed off to Eye On Malaysia (Ferris Wheel ride). For RM15 each, we were treated to a 12min ride, 4 rounds of turn to view the KL night. Now I understand y this Ferris wheel ride is not mentioned on the "Must See", and even M'sians Have not been there. The experience, nth fantastic. Too short and small, u can only see as far as the Twin Towers, and the wheel just turned too fast ard. After the 2nd round, i wished i was out.

Q-Bar at Westin Hotel

Me and Angie

After the ride, I met my fren Angie for supper and an impromptu visit to Q-Bar in Westin. Quite a cool bar! Latin band playing and dancing. We couldnt dance as we were severly improperly dressed. T-shirt and jeans for Angie, and sleeveless t-shirt, skirt and slippers for me. Well, next time then! Next stop was Indian food where we sampled cheese naan. Nice! The night ended at 3am for me. Tired!!

Twin Tower

Next morning, off to Bukit Bintang for some shopping and just jalan jalan (walk around) Nothing for me to shop as I just returned from Bangkok. Weather was damn hot!! Visited the Twin Tower and took some souvenir shots. Then off to the cinema for me to watch Ocean's 13, while the rest went separate ways. This is my 2nd movie in the week. Yes, I went to watch movie in Bangkok as well (Fantastic Four) and had to stand up for the national anthemn.
Group photo at the Dinner
Night time was dinner with the relatives at a chinese restaurant and visiting my 3rd uncle. Another late night and off to sleep for an early morning Dim SUm session the next day b4 our bus leaves for SG.

Dim Sum at 1030am with 3rd uncle, his son and his son's wife. Then it's off to the bus terminal for our 1pm bus. There we saw Dunkin Donuts AGAIN! Talking abt dunkin donuts, how to spot a Singaporean? Easy! When u c someone buying BOXES of dunkin donuts, that person is Singaporean. Yes, craze over donuts. This is true in Bangkok as well!

Mr Bean's bear!!

My dear sis got so very sick during the trip back home that she vomitted during the ride to the terminal and again after our dinner back in SG. I had to lend her my dear beanie star during the bus ride. Luckily she did not vomit on it. Oh we saw Mr Bean's Bear! So damn cute.

It was a LONG, ardous trip back home, reaching SG at ard 830pm. That's the end of the short KL trip. Total damage in KL, probably about RM40 (my own expenditure, excluding the bus ticket and hotels and 1st night dinner). Well I did not meant to spend in KL.

1 week rendevous getaway to Bangkok and KL - Part 1

My 1st true holiday (where I travelled by flight i mean) for the year! Bangkok, the place where I nvr wld have thot I would njoy and spend >2 days there. Truth be told, I was there for 4 days, and quite like it! I did not plan to go Bangkok this year (totally not in my plan) but 3weeks b4 the trip, my friend managed to persuade me to take the trip with her (literally with her cos i was there for leisure, she was there for business). So with the lure of free 5-star accomodation, I got hooked and booked my return flight to bangkok. Suddenly I started to feel excited, and penned my shopping list!

Swimming pool in the hotel

Armed with S$200 SGD worth of Thai Baht (and credit cards + extra SGD), i went to my fren's house on sat nite to stay over so that I can get to the airport easier the next morn for the 630am flight. I was scheduled to arrive abt 1.5hrs b4 my fren (who was taking SQ flight). After we arrived, took the limo to the hotel (Sheraton Grand), the 1st stop was Chatuchak Market. 2hours of shopping in Chatuchak set me back at 1,440B(~S$65) and several items off my shopping list. Bought bikinis(yes i'm a bikini whore), slippers, sunglasses, hat, shorts, top....

Back to hotel for a short rest, drop off our shopping items and off to MBK, the mega shopping mall! My damage there, only 619B(~S$28) cos it's only the 1st day at MBK, look ard for the good deals b4 striking the next day.
Me at Chinatown
Me at durian stall
At night, it's Chinatown time for FOOD! 1st stop, kaya toast (much like the SG version but the kaya is orange and less sweet). Then, it's durian eating along the streets. 1st time eating durian in like 2 years at least! 100B for like 9 seeds. The taste - dry, not too sweet, OK. More shopping for thai food, then last stop was Sharks' fins and bird's nest soup. We were oredi quite full by then. 300B for Shrks' fins, 200B for bird's nest soup. I did not drink bird's nest cos I don't like. Sharks' fins soup was quite nice, thick n with quite alot of ingredients in it.

Shark's fins and bird's nest soup

2nd day, I was off on my own, shopping at Central World and splurged on Bras!! Haha, cheap cheap! N it's not ABC brand but brands like Warcoal and Triumph. Then I had the famous Thailand Kaya Toast! They have different flavours of Kaya and i had the Taro flavoured kaya toast. The kaya is smooth n thick. Yum Yum. It's at emporium shopping centre 5th level, beside Body shop. Must go try! 20B per piece! Night time was dinner with Alvin tan (ex-colleague) at Fuji Japanese Restaurant.

Taro flavoured kaya toast

More shopping on the 3rd day and dinner by the roadside, fishball noodle soup for 30B. Quite nice! 4th and last day, a morning 2hr thai massage and off to the airport for the trip back home.

Total damage = 9,186B(~S$412) Wow Bangkok is evil!!

Next stop - KL family trip

Brazilian Virgin - No More!

No pain no gain...Nope not talking about Tattoo.. That plan I think gota KIV for the moment (resistance from higher level). So went for another treatment - Brazilian Wax! Haha... My friend has mentioned this plan just a few days ago n well y not just go for it! INitially we were going for just the bikini wax (just bikini line area), but after consultation with the Strip therapist (I resist calling them Stripist), all-off Brazilian Wax is more worth it for us. Reason being, well, there just isnt much hair around the bikini line for them to wax off! Haha, we're just not hairy enuff! Whatever, so we braced ourselves for the full on Brazilian wax! FYI, Brazilian wax means all hair off the private area down there :P

Isit as painful as depicted on TV? Where women just go screaming their heads off at the sound of 'zesh'? Oh, all those are nonsense! Exaggerated! Made for TV drama! Not painful at all! Ok, u'll feel ur hair being pulled off, but that's just it! I wouldn't call it painful, juz like a slight pinch.. All those worries for nothing! N the feeling is quite shiok! Feels so clean n tidy now hahaha...Kinky... Definitely will go back again... But gota let my hair grow b4 i go, so that the process is more worth it (u noe, wax off more hair for the same price) The whole process is quite fast, 15mins max! Nothing to be afraid of! Come ladies, go for it!!

Oh sorrie, no pictures for this one, it's XXX-rated ok... U'll just have to go experience urself if u wana noe how it goes...

Attack of the Sequels!!!

This is the year of the Attack of the Sequels!! Yes, all the Hollywood blockbusters are sequels!!!

Spidey 3, Pirates of the Carribean (part 3), Shrek 3, Ocean's 13, Fantastic 4 (2nd movie), Harry Potter (5th movie), and what have u lined up... Well well, are they running out of ideas for new movies? But then again, if it ain't broken, don mend it rite?

Talking about sequels, notice how many 3rd installments there are! N I have watched all but one! Spidey3, pirates and Shrek 3... I have watched them all...N truth is, 3rd installment doesnt quite live up to expectation.

Spidey 3 - A little too draggy on the emotional parts, the relationships... Too little time on the action. Too many villians n too little time on them. Overall, too slow (it's abt 2.5hrs long i think) and the action only comes in at the very last part which was like rather short. Not my fav (think part 2 is still the best).

Pirates of the Carribean: At world's end - 2.5hrs long movie! Front part too slow and draggy. Introducing new characters, trying to build up the story. We need more Captain jack sparrow, will turner & elizabeth! They are the main attractions! Bu too little focus on them and too late. Only till the middle did the movie pick up steam on the action & adventure. Oh Will turner (aka Orlando Bloom) is just so damn dashing n handsome!! Overall, it is still so much better than Spidey 3. At least the action & the effects are just so cool!! But the thing I don't believe is that Eliz is willing to wait 10yrs for her hubby (Will) for just 1 day of reunion. Phew, is that possible? I mean, isn't that like the same as being a widow? N how many 10yrs can u wait! We're talking 10yrs here, not 10days, 10 weeks or 10mths! Is their love for each other so damn strong to withstand the 10yrs of agonising waiting, longing & lust? In reality, I reali don think it's possible. Somemore, they don't have internet of handphone to keep in contact...

Moving on

Shrek 3 - Well what to say... It's just an animation. It is realli damn funny though, but i think the supporting casts outshone shrek! Yes, it shld not been called Shrek anymore but Shrek N Friends ( more emphasis on Friends) cos the supportings are just too damn furnie & interesting! Like Pinochio (just love the way he managed to talk his way through, hiding the fact that he knows where Shrek is but still not lying cos he can't), Gingerbread man (how he juz phased out when threatened, hence avoiding being asked by Prince Charming), Puss (Oh he is just so cute with his innocent eyes), Donkey(irritated by his incessant talkings but furnie)... Shrek? Who cares?! Of cos, as un-Disney as it is, it is still a Happily Ever after ending... with 3 Ogre babies!! Brainless movie, good for de-stressing and getting things off my mind..

So what's next? Maybe I shld watch Ocean's 13 to complete my list of trilogy watched. But then again, I don't like any of the actors in the movie. George Clooney - Y do pple find him so sexy? Argh he's old n ugly! Brad Pitt - Ar... No comments, don reali like him anyway. Matt Damon - Not good looking but the least hateful of the lot. The rest - No recollection at all! Haha.. It's just a heist movie. Can't even rem Ocean's 12 plot. Fantastic 4, not a fan.. What movie to watch? Harry Potter? Maybe lo, just to complete the series, not a fan as well.. Think out of the 4 movies, at least 2 i watched it on DVD (pirated somemore) keke...

Haha, maybe i shld just stick to my YOutube videos! Yes, I'm now offically a YouTube Whore!! Hooked desperately on YouTube, watching all my Next Top Models series - American, Canada, Britain, Germany, Australia, U name it I watch it. Oh man, YouTube is just such a wonderful invention!!! I can just spend my whole day watching non-stop! Now following Canada's NTM.. Finishing up Germany's NTM soon... Yes, I'm a video whore.. I still have my animes to catch up.. I need more free time!!
