It's All About Orangey Yellow

Ok so I guess most of you know that the there was no water supply for most places in Penang on Tuesday. And it so happened that my housing area was one of those in the list. Hence my mum suggested that we should go out station for a day trip, to "run away" from the "no water hassle". :)

So off we went to Taiping, since we have not been there for ages. Without doing any research through the internet the night before, we went with just a few simple maps provided by magazines.

Quite a spontaneous trip I would say, so everything was spontaneous. As we failed to find the place my uncle recommended for lunch, we ended up eating at this hawker centre at Jalan Panggung Wayang.

I took a walk in it, observed what most people were eating and realized most of them ordered "Fishball Char Kuey Teow". So, of course I follow them and ordered the same thing.

Nah, this is how it looked like.

Notice how oily is it? Gosh, I would not order again, though the taste was actually not bad. Very different from our Penang Char Kuey Teow :)

After that we drove around Taiping town, saw the Taiping Zoo, Jail and Lake Garden. Nothing much to see actually, so we headed back to Bukit Merah.

Snapped a few pictures in Bukit Merah and I decided to edit it to orangey yellow feel. Here they are:







Though it was just a simple trip, we were very satisfied because it has been some time since we went for a trip together. Missed the family trip in June this year due to my stupid final exams.

Just as we thought we came back at the right timing where water supply was supposed to be available, we were wrong. It was stated that there would be no water supply from 7am to 7pm, mana tau for my place, water only came back the next morning. But stopped around 11am something, then water came back but the pressure was worse than your pee. Until this morning only then the water supply was normal.

Thank god. Because I want to bath with shower and wash my dirty hair!

By the way, say hi to my little Pooh :)

Christmas present all the way from UK :)


Did you all party whole night? Were you all drunk? XD

I did not. Christmas eve is always not the party night for me. It's more like a gathering with my fellow TOU friends ♥

Wish all of you have an enjoyable day!

And.... Happy New Year!

Happy Solstice! 祝大家冬至快乐!

Hmm I know I am a bit late wishing everyone but I guess it's alright because till today I am still eating 汤圆"tang yuan" or "tong yun".

As for the picture above, please forgive me the bad quality because it was actually an MMS sent by fei to us! So good of her. Thanks dear!

It's called the Hakka Dou Sha Tang Yuan "客家豆沙汤圆". That's why the soup is dark brown colour.

So what is the type of 汤圆 that you are eating? Hokkien, Teochew, Canto, Hakka or... you do not know? :)

Anyway, since Solstice festival is over, Christmas is just around the corner. Hereby I would like to wish everyone:

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

♥ Christmas Feel in Genting ♥

Reindeer and Santa Claus made of mineral water bottles. *impressed*

Hello peeps!

Finally finished working for this holiday. PIKOM Digital Lifestyle Expo was the last fair I worked before coming back Penang this morning. No more work (except script writing) for the remaining sem break because I need to really concentrate in my FYP. My supervisor's gonna kill me soon if I still have not much progress to report. *sigh*

Anyway, anyone of you went to Genting recently? The weekend before the fair I went up there to meet my family and relatives. We attended a relative's wedding dinner in Kuantan so stayed overnight in Genting for 2 nights.

For this Christmas, the decorations in Genting are made of recyclable materials such as cardboards, discs, mineral water bottles and water dispensers. Really love the deco. Awesome!



Look at this 45-foot Christmas Tree. It is made of 1074 pieces of 5 gallon water dispensers sponsored by Spritzer. Very nice :)


And this is me, trying to hold the Christmas Tree decoration.

We cousins did crazy snapshots with the spotlights. Look at the most right picture and look closely at my cousin's expression. I totally love it haha.

This is the only small kid who still played the "ting ting" machine. Up until today I still do not get it why he loves the game so much. All he got were the cards, which were quite useless. But he played and sweated like hell, and spent more than 100 bucks just for this game. Haih, kids nowadays.....

We even watched an amazing magic show with many other awesome performances by Glitz at The Pavilion.

Interior of The Pavilion

Really had a nice weekend with my big family :) Going outing with them is always fun, memorable and precious.

Bestie cousin

Our beloved grandma

And our lovely mischievous kiddie cousin

Hoping to join our Leow family annual trip next year with these lovely people again :)

Freezing cold *Grr....grr.....grr....*

In a very cold night, the 4 crazy cousins did crazy things in front of a 45-foot Christmas Tree in Genting.

The Christmas tree was very special as it was made of 1074 pieces of 5 gallon water dispensers sponsored by Spritzer.

Especially love this picture because of the pinkish background lighting.

I really love family outing~ They are awesome!!♥♥

Top part of the wedding cake

3 families, 12 of us attended a relative's wedding dinner on Saturday in Kuantan.

That bridegroom is my uncle (but seems more like a brother to me), my dad's cousin, my grandma's sister's son. Alright I know it's confusing, but yea I called him uncle.

Met relatives from other parts of Malaysia as well as overseas. All of them came back for this dinner. Very happy to meet them up.

So next Chinese New Year, I can get an extra ang pow from this "uncle" :)
