Been a bad week for me since Sunday. Im not been to myself since then. Its like i`ve lost myself. Been moody, sad and maybe even depression.

From studies to some conflict in my life. There`s seems nothing is going my way. Everything seems like out of order and track. Need to pick them up piece by piece. Slowly and carefully.

Guess black days will go away like heavy rain will stop. Something does make me happy today. Mum bought me a dress that i like without much manjaness. Thank you , mum.

Hehe. Finally, something is there to make me happy and i can forget those unhappy days for a while. =)

Hope for the best....

I went to see my uni`s coordinator yesterday to discuss bout my studies. Im left with 16 papers to go and i hope that i can finished my degree by next year.

Although i might be studying for quite sometime but i just officially started my degree this year. If by calculation and my plan went on smoothly, i will be finishing my degree in just 2 years where the original timespan will be 3 years.

I hope that everything will go according to my plan and go smoothly without must complication. But still, im kind of prepare for the worse.

Please let my wish come true....

Loy Krathong in Penang

Yesterday was the Loy Krathong Festival. Its a festival that was widely celebrated throughout Thailand. It is held on the full moon of the 12th month in the traditional Thai Lunar Calendar, in the western calendar this usually falls into Novermber. “Loi” means “to float”. “Krathong” is a raft about a handspan in diameter traditionally made from a section of banana tree trunk , decorated with elaborately-folded banana leaves, flowers, candles, incense sticks etc. During the night of the full moon, many people will release a small raft like this on a river.

We went to the Wat Buppharam in Perak Road to celebrate the fastival and to join in the crowd. Upon arrival at around 8pm, we saw a few stalls selling those "Krathong". There are variety of shapes and sizes to choose from and style too. Apparently, the new style of "Krathong" has evolved from the traditional tree trunk based to Styrofoam based. So, it looked more plastic-ky than the traditional 1.For a small " Krathong" , it cost for RM 10 and the big 1 ranged from RM 20 to RM30.

The varieties of "Krathong" being sell. From Styrofoam to the traditional banana trunk type.

There are a few events that going on at that moment. Some of them are, the singing stage and another part of the temple, there got a few people dancing. Guess not so appropriate. Hehe.

Singing stage.

A guy-girl dancing away ala Thai.

So, we bought 3 "Krathongs" and waited for the parade to begin. I thought the parade going to begun at 9 pm as stated in the newspaper but i was wrong as the main parade only start at 10.30 which is after the chanting from the monks which was scheduled to be start at 9pm. The chanting process only begun at 9.30pm. Talking about punctuality. Cheeshhh.....
The praying altar

People mountain people sea inside the temple waiting for the chanting process.

Our "Krathong".

Some of the "Krathong" inside the temple. If you buy the "Krathong" inside the temple, each 1 cost RM15.

At ard 10.30pm, the parade finally begin. People followed the parade car to Gurney Drive to release their "Krathong" to the sea.But there are certain rules which you can follow. It`s believed by the the Thai people that before you release your "Krathong", its is advisable that you add a snip of your hair or fingernails into the "Krathong" as this is to bring part of your bodies goes out to the Goddess of Water, Phra Mae Khongkha and its to bring bad luck out of your bodies. I dunno how true is that, but we just follow the culture. =)

Lighting up the parade car`s candle. Marking its time to start the parade to Gurney.

Some of the parade cars.

We took a short cut to Gurney as we stop halfway to drive there cuz there`s too many people and we`re in a rush too. =P

his is my 2nd time celebrating this Loy Krathong festival but it was my 1st time celebrating in Penang. My 1st time was in Thailand itself.

Believe it or not !!

No no, i ts not that Ripley`s show. Its just something so bizarre that happened infront of you that you found it still so unbelievable.

Last Monday which was the 19th of Nov was the birthday of one of the Chinese god, "Ji Gong". Then, one of my relative`s place was holding this "party" to celebrate this god`s birthday. Later, this relative of mine was "possessed" by this Ji Gong. In Cantonese, they called it as " Thiu Thong" or something like that.

This picture was taken during the Ninth Emperor`s Festival and this guy in the middle was possessed by Na Cha.

This relative of mine got this kinda "power" that gods can get in and out from his body. Using his body to so - called help people. People can ask the god any questions that he or she wanted to know and he or she will get a solution from the god.

At times, the god will give 4 numbers for the "viewers" to buy. For example, during the process, one of the god gave 4 numbers which appear as 7274 then, the next day, magnum came up 9274 as third prize. Although not exactly the same, but the last 3 digits are exactly the same as predicted.

Then another incident was, my mum wanted to ask about my grandpa`s health, my mum just tell the god the name of my grandpa and the god knew that my grandpa is 75 this year even before my mum told the god.

There are a few incidents more but to cut the story short, do you believe those things? Its still a mystery to me but as my relative says :

" Dont believe this kinda things too much. You believe it is ok, but not too much and obsess with it "

Care to tell me you opinion?

Hotel Reservations

Recently we have a plan to go to KL for a vacation. We planned to stay at one of the hotels in city center as this will be easier for us to go to the shooping complexes to do our shopping. After some consideration, we decided to stay at Traders Hotel, KL. But there is a major letdown – The room rates are rather expensive – USD 108. This makes us hesitate whether to proceed with the hotel reservation or not because we are going to stay for 4 nights, and it will cost us USD432, which is a whopping RM1555! We decided to look for another hotel which is cheaper and suits our budget. As we searched online, we went to this website – Hotel Reservations. This website is actually a website which enable us to make Hotel Reservations online. We decided to give it a try, and look for the best offer available. Guess what? They offered a much cheaper room rate for Traders Hotel at only USD80! This means that I can save up to USD112, which is equivalent to RM403! It is indeed that through this site, we can enjoy quite alot of savings. Thumbs up!

Later on, we checked on the details in the website. We were surprised that besides making hotel reservation, the website also enables us to purchase flight tickets, make reservations for car rental, and you can even look for a vacation package in the website. Through this website, you can plan your vacation in the easiest way. Everything can be done in the same website, making it so convenient for people to plan for their desired vacation at a cheaper price. No doubt, I enjoy using this website to plan for my vacation. So, plan your vacations and make hotel reservations today, and enjoy your vacation planning!

Rou Gu Cha King @ New World Park, Penang

As the title says it all. We went to this shop called Rou Gu Cha King to have our BKT. Its a bit high class than the normal average shop at the road side or any location.

You`ll be greated by this set of decoration of teas and its utensil upon reaching the shop.

The menu

We ordered 3 personal sets that comes with the BKT soup, rice, "yau char guai",vege and also normal tea. When i said normal, it means really normal lor but my uncle who came join us, he ordered the "special" tea that charged differently.

If im not mistaken, this is what my uncle ordered - Pu Er tea

The tea utensil set. Looked so pro. =P

This is what we`ve ordered that day :


(l-r) Vege (taugeh), "Yau Char Guai", Rice

(l-r) : Red Wine Rou Gu Cha, Dry Rou Gu Cha, Original Rou Gu Cha

Red Wine Rou Gu Cha:
Looked like original BKT but when you drink the soup, you`ll get to taste the red wine. The herbs and red wine combo - YUMMY.
Price - RM 12.90 per set

Dry Rou Gu Cha:
Soup less type of BKT. Cooked with those black soy sauce with lotsa lil` sotong. This type - Recommendable.
Price - RM10.90 per set

Original Rou Gu Cha :
Taste like your normal and original BKT. Taste wise - Not Bad
Price - RM 10.90 per set

Saw something cute when we`re eating half way :

Forget the name of this dish - Golden bla bla bla =P This dish cost - RM 7 per plate but luckily, we didn`t order this dish as the waiter give them to the wrong table. =P

And the final bill for the dinner - ard RM 50 ++

"Body" check-up and a Face Lift

Been almost 4 month now. Therefore, its time for "body" check-up and get some new "medicine" for smooth flow. After that, went for another check-up which required some face lift. OMG...i can hear *kah ch`ng kah ch`ng* d.

No la, Im not sick neither my family members. Touch wood. Hee hee. What i meant here was, its my Baby`s "body" check-up. My BB is my precious Kenari Aerosport. Its already done the 5k period and its time to change its oil filter and stuff.

BB with the changing oil machine. Looked like those oxygen machine to me. hehe

Yuckz. Black Black oil.

So, after breaky with mum, we went to our mechanic for the check-up. Change oil filter etc etc which cost my mum ard RM50. Cheap, ei? Hehe...

Then, we went to tires shop with initial plan of doing the alignments and balancing for BB but from what is the initial plan, changed to a face lift. Mum heard *kah ch`ng kah ch`ng* again. *Oops* =P

Old rims. Byebye.Thank you for your service.

One of BB`s rim was crooked and needed "repair". Therefore, mum allow me to change rims for BB. I`ve been "manja-ing" mum for the rims for ages and now she allow me to do so. Superduper happy. Hahahaha. So, i happily look for a rims that suit BB and finally found 1. It was imported from Taiwan rims but not so branded but looked nice and cool. I like.Mum like it too. Cost RM900 for 4sets of 14".

Hello to new rims.

And then, from just changing rims, it became change-the-tires for BB also. Initially, mum reject the plan but because of the person offers a price that`s kind of un-rejectable. Mum change BB`s tires for me also. Wow, what a day for me. SUPERDUPER x100 happy for me. Changed to a Yokohama 165 blah blah type A Drive thingy.

Then, I asked mum to change its nuts for me. Those that lock the rims 1. Special nuts coz scared people might be able to steal the rims away if using the normal 1. =)

Super combo. New rims. Brand new tires and blue nuts. Purrr-fect.

Mum are RM 1170 poorer. OOps..Result - super smooth and light drive. Nice.

Thank you, mum.
