Project 52 - Week 5 (10/8/09 - 16/8/09)

Monday - Went to the farm after lunch with mum and dad. It rained and we were all soaking wet.

Tuesday - Meeting up with the Omega-ians at Old Town Kopitiam, Taipan. *click*

Thursday - Went for MICCOS 09 with my dad in MAEPS, Serdang. Nothing interesting this time round since its focused on Oil Palm, Tabacco, Rubber, Timber and etc. Got to see what a tabacco plant look like though. After the exhibition, went to the farm to see the progress of dad's Passion Fruit preject.

Friday - Attended Food and Hotel Malaysia 2009 at KLCC with my family. I was a culinary student for a day eating like I haven't eaten for days there. Food samples were really good. Loved the dark chocolates from Beryl's and the lamb from another booth. Scratched the estima against a lorry today, I think its around the same time of the year that I drove over a drain.

Saturday - PD! - Dad's company trip + Seminar on Lean Management. Had to wake up really early because we had to be in PD before 9.30am. Couldn't check in to the hotel(Corus Paradise Resort) as the rooms were not ready yet so we were served breakfast before the seminar. Had lunch and BBQ dinner at the hotel. Dinner was okay but lunch was horrible. Before dinner, we surveyed PD town and Lukut for food. Nothing interesting again. Last trip to PD in March was dissappointing too. Oh, and missed the sunset too. So no pics... Rest of the pics will be up in the next post.

In conclusion, PD isn't that worthwhile going to. No good food, beaches are horrid and hotels are old and dirty! Hotel review; Poor - Poorly maintained, looks good from the outside but rooms, food and service are very poor. Next morning, breakfast at the hotel and then we left early. Stopped by Seremban for lunch before heading to the farm, grandparent's place and then home. Even Seremban would be a better place to visit. Food there are to die for! :)

Warning! - If you are hungry, don't scroll down.

(just some of the photos from FHM 09, was trying out some lomo effect tutorial I found on the internet. Didn't follow that though, was trying out something new and I totally love the contrast it gives. All photos are from the cybershot.)


Week 4's photos

Pao from Khiew Enterprise, Dengkil. Prefer this compared to the other second one from Tanjung Sepat.

This one is Hai Yew Heng, Tanjung Sepat. Read online that its hainanese pao. What's the difference between this and the rest? Shall google to find out later. They have more than 8 different flavours.

Both stalls have been visited and reviewed by many famous tv shows and celebs. Want to try them out yourself? PM me for address or way to get there!

Project 52 - Week 4 (3/8/09 -> 9/8/09)

Its August already!
Year 2 starts next month. I was dreading so much about 4 months break being too long. Now, its too short!

Been working on the Project Paper for the Dragon Fruit farm. The thing I dislike most about it is that is has to be in BM. I took 15 minutes to type an e-mail in BM! Such a waste of time.

And the new management for Pangkor and Kapas accommodation halls have not confirmed my room for next sem! Tried calling them but they are not answering!Annoying...

Saturday - ZH's farewell party at his house. Met alot of ex-SU people whom I haven't seen around for ages. Even feels odd to meet them again as we used to talk/chat alot and now there's nothing to say. No photos cause I nicely left my house without the battery. Only realized that the battery was missing when we were about to take group photos. ZH, get those photos! After the party, went jogging with the siblings. Midnight jog :)

Sunday - Gone red-headed. Did red highlights on my hair and I'm hoping it fades to light brown. For now, RED it is. My parents decided to take a drive around to see fruit farms and so we went to Dengkil, Morib, Tanjung Sepat, Sungai Pelek, Sepang and then home. Stopped at Dengkil and Tanjung Sepat for steam paos. I still prefer the Dengkil ones. Its from this shop named Khiew Enterprise in Dengkil Town itself. The restaurant just next to it is not bad too.

Restaurant Kelapa Ikan Chan Sow Lin

Dated: 25/7/09

The fish head was really good! I'm not really a fan of fish heads, but this was exceptionally tasty.

Location? Its somewhere among the factories, next to a monsoon drain.

Project 52 - Week 3 (27/7/09 -> 2/8/09)

At Carefour, *gross*. This tiny rat was crawling all around the fresh food section.

After a staff picked it up with his bare hands.

Been following my mum to her workplace since Tuesday.

I get annoyed with weird phone calls.

Friday: End of July! Had my second appointment for my RCT. The doctor told me it would take an hour, but it turned out to be an hour and a half. Took X-ray thrice and kept my mouth open the entire time because there were files (needle-like stuffs) poked into my tooth. Thrice because she couldn't get a proper x-ray of the roots as they were apparently too long. Had to walk up and down the clinic with my mouth open too. Then, she filled the tooth with rubber fillings. Whole process wasn't painful and I'm looking forward to my last appointment next week (technically this week).

took this while waiting for the dentist to get back into the room...

Headed down to the farm after that, went fishing with my brother at the pond and then had dinner in Mantin. After dinner, we decided to head back to the farm to see the flowers open. That explains the flower in the previous post. A lot more to come! when I'm not lazy.

Saturday: Dim sum with the family because mum had to go to Poh Kong. Bummed into E. Had Old Town coffee while waiting for Poh Kong to open. Then, to Bukit Raja.

Queen of the Night

After almost a year, this was my first time seeing the flower bloom. This is the flower of the dragon fruit (also known as Pitaya, Buah Naga and many other various names), which only blooms at night and thus, goes about with the name Queen of the Night.

More photos coming up soon.
