Oh, You're A Holiday..


The white stretch of sand, the crashing of the waves, the bright moonlight, the chilly breeze, the sunny afternoons, the squaking hornbills, the delicious food, the reggae, the free spirit and the company of friends. This generally describes the beach on the east.

There is too much to say about this wonderful trip, so let the pictures do the talking.

The 6 of us - Joseph, Jason, Navin, Me, KJ and Shao on the beach at 5 am when we just arrived.

Our beach front chalet at pre-dawn.

Sunrise over the hills.

Us chilling out on the verandah.

The coolest place ever by the mangrove.

It was one of the best trips ever and I can truly say that God watched over our party. Our chalet was broken into and a camera and a phone were stolen. But by the intervening hand of God, the villagers managed to recover the lost possessions. Overall, it was RM200 well spent.


On the 17th of February, ten of us packed into Hugo's Alphard to head to Kampar for the sole purpose of eating. With Sam and I seated on the floor, the 45 minute journey was fun and we listened to many Chinese songs. We went to Kam Ling for the famed chicken curry bun, then, to UTAR where we met Hugo's ex-schoolmate who brought us around. After lepak-ing here and there we left with more of the huge buns in the car.

Chiak, chiak, chiak!


New Town


Two days later, to get rid of the fats after the eating spree, we hiked up the hill in the wee hours of the morning. It wasn't the first time hiking in the forest there but it was the first time I hiked up through the forest in the darkness. We missed the sunrise, but the view was beautiful with the mist and sunbeams.


Yes, another eating trip. This time, only the 8 of us went. We had claypot chicken rice for dinner with Hugo's friend again (I think it's spelt Singh Yeah) and Ryohei Yamamoto. We bounded to the pasar malam there which was huge and more happening than Ipoh East's, more muhibbah too. After that, we went to the UTAR students' residence - to Ryohei's place. There, I learnt to play mahjong. And talk about my penchant for beginner's luck. Remember my four Di's in Chor Dai Di? Well, after Hugo's teaching, I won 4 out of 5 games! My tiles were beautiful. Ryohei joked that he would hire me to play for him and pay me 30% of the winnings. Just when I was getting better at the game, it was time to go.

Now that Hugo's back in Melbourne, there'll be less outings. But, it was a great time and just nice before the results are out.
