Today balik opis after cuti for 3 days. Mengantuk! Nda tau la sia MrJ hari ni p KL utk meeting. mesti mengantuk gila. Hari 6 tu straightaway drive pi Menumbok lepas touchdown jam 7.30pg. Agak laju juga la sebab KK to Menumbok is about 1 hour 45 minutes. KALAU 80kmj la and above and no pit stop. Since we book feri jam 10.30am, we have 3 hours untuk drive pi Menumbok. Without having the time to eat breakfast (flight pukul 6pg, kadai makan belum buka) MrJ and my sister (2 kereta konvoi pi Labuan) drove straight almost 2 hours to Menumbok. Nasib baik nda hujan la. Tujuan sia cuti ni actually mo attend my sis's wedding registration di JPN KK. Dia kawin bulan 5 ni. Since my parents in law won't be able to make it in May, sebab they will go to Korea (MrJ and I will miss the trip thanks to my sis's wedding huhu), so they joined me and MeJ this time to KK and attend the ceremony. And alang2 pi KK...they wanted to go to Labuan. So alang-alang my PIL join, my SIL yang tengah sarat mengandung almost 7 bulan with her husband pun tagged along. Sebab they won't be able to also make it in May because my SIL would be in her confinement. And MrJ's brother joined sebab belum pernah pi Labuan. And also MrJ's nenek. So we vroomed to Menumbok at almost 8am. Ngam2 sampai Menumbok jam10.10am. Nasib baik teda urang. So I berlari-lari anak to the main building utk bayar cukai and beli tiket (RM2.50 per person). Cukai kereta Avanza - RM50 tiket (per trip) with 1 driver + RM16 cukai Myvi - RM40 tiket (per trip) with 1 driver + RM14 cukai in 10 minutes everything was settled and 10.25am I was on board along with the others. Phew! Kalau peak season macam time hantar my bro pi Matrik hari tu, memang nda sempat. So lain kali don't do stunts like us - dari airport jam 7.30pagi, terus pecut kejar feri jam 10.30am. But that's the only way la sebab the next ferry would be at 4.30pm...sampai Labuan sudah pukul berapa kan... wasting time tunggu. Kekekek... Anyway, we reached Labuan by 1pm and checked in to our pre booked rooms at Hotel Pulau Labuan 2. It's a nice hotel. Spacious. A bit old but still, quite clean and most importantly, cheaper than the other hotel around the area, given that it was located smack right in the middle of town so everything is within walking distance. Last time we stayed in Hotel Aifa which is a new hotel in town. But it was quite pricey (almost RM200 for a single room). Labuan Hotel however, we paid RM178 per family room with 2 Queen Beds with breakfast for 4 person. We were joined by my bro in Labuan later that day. Biasalah di Labuan, we pajak chocolates and found unique liquor bottles for display. You'll find various unique bottles just waiting for you to pick. It's like a treasure island. Haha. I bought coca cola bottles and cans from Japan. And I bought chocolates of course. My sister who will be married in May belatedly asks us to buy her wines for her dinner. Pfft. She transferred money into my account before I could say yes. Haya..so I have no choice but to buy her supplies. Meaning, less bottles for me. Since there were 12 of us, with an avanza and myvi, memang beli sikit untuk sendiri saja la. No, bukan beli sikit utk sendiri... memang beli supplies dia saja. nda dapat mau beli untuk sendiri. Aigoo.... and whose trip was this? Ours or hers? Kekekek.. Anyway, we managed to bargain with the shops and we are left with RM80 of her money to splurge on chocolates. Dinner in Labuan For dinner on the first day, we tried Anjung Ketam in Tanjung Aru. Verdict : Location wise, it's perfect. It was an open air kind of restaurant halfway on top of the water. We can enjoy the sunset while waiting for our meals. But the wind was so strong memang kurang selesa. I am not sure whether the wind problem memang kebiasaan time petang, but it made the experience quite unbearable. Da la sejuk....kuat angin lagi... Food : Um, how should I put it. 2 out of 5. Just because the location is nice. That was the first time I ate ketam masak susu pekat manis (cap junjung). It was supposed to be buttermilk crab. Tapi jadi susu pekat manis crab. Macam makan ketam cecah susu pun ada. The food is quite pricey and a fish can fetch RM45/kg. People's review said the restaurant is superb with superb food. But sangat la jauh panggang dari api. Location memang superb la tapi, the food..? Mungkin ikut menu la. Maybe ada menu dia sedap, we'll never know sebab memang we will not go here dalam masa terdekat ni. Enough said. On the second day, we went to the Island Garden just beside Hotel Aifa. On our previous trip to Labuan, we ate dinner here and waited almost 1 hour for the food to arrive. Maybe sebab banyak orang. Memang that time rasa never want to eat here again. But the food is just too nice not to makan here again. Verdict : On this trip however, We had a pleasant surprise. The drinks arrived almost immediately (5 minutes macam tu..cepat la juga as compared to the previous visit) and the food came after 20 minutes. By the previous standard, they have improved. Location wise, it's convenient. Just a walking distance (but we drove, anyway) from any location within the town since it's located in town. Food : 4.5 out of 5. And don't worry. It's halal. Most of the seafood (if not all) restaurant in Labuan is halal. The food is definitely waaaaaay better than those we had in Anjung Ketam. This is the review of people from Kch - the town of seafood lover. So I can say it's quite credible. Dinner in KK You think we've had enough of seafood? Haha. Nope. Not yet. Hung Xing Restaurant This restaurant is located in Penampang. Just in front of the Eden Height, a stone's throw from Taman Kendara and Taman Nice. Serves no pork. And this restaurant can cater for quite a big number of people with 11- 12 tables if you want to have a birthday dinner or a small party. They have an air conditioned room for that kind of event. It's a newly established restaurant and we've been there quite a few times. The price is reasonable (as compared to the others is the KK area) and the menu is very nice. We didn't take the fish though. Because they tend to overcook it, making it keras and not quite sedap. And yes, ikan is mahal in KK too. That is why we skipped it. We actually went to this restaurant 2 times haha. First for dinner on our first day in KK, and the next day for my SIL's son's birthday dinner. These are the menus we had in those 2 days. verdict : 4 out of 5 We had : Mango prawn (must have item) Salad prawn (so delicious!) Salted egg crab (yum!!) vegetables thai style chicken (the sauce is to die for!) crispy roasted chicken (tasty. Similar to what we have in Kch) soup On the house : Mango and coconut puding in susu cair (susu Ideal I think) Gayang Restaurant We went here for lunch after my sister's wedding registration ceremony. It's near the INTAN complex. I saw government servants having their lunch there. Maybe sebab dekat with Mini Putrajaya .. We had : Thai style fish Deep fried sotong balls vegetable chilli sauce crab butter prawn soup lemon chicken verdict : Food OK. 3 out of 5. Maybe by this time I was a bit muak with seafood suda. Keke. Lagipun, we all sampai lambat, so food sejuk sikit suda time we all sampai. But still, habis juga la. Haha. The food is priced ikut KGs here. By the 5th day of our cuti, we were bloated and muak with seafood. Haha. Tula, menghantam seafood tus tegumuk and muak. Tiapa la.. bukan selalu.. konon! So feel free to go and visit any of the restaurants mentioned above. But different people may have different experiences with these restaurants. So what appeals to me might not appeal to you. I leave that to your own discretion.

i have been estranged with one of my bestie for almost 4 years now. Something happened along the way that hurt us both. Darah muda kali.. Cakap lepas.. buat benda baru fikir. By then it's too late. terlajak perahu boleh diundur..terlajak kata..? but anyway, for 3 years we didn't speak to each other. We are close but seems so far away. It hurts when I think back of those fond memories. How can that long good years be destroyed by our own mulut celupar? yep, it was both our silly mistake. thinking back, God how stupid we were. Now that I'm, ahem, getting older and matured (i hope so), i've been thinking a lot about us. And I hope in the near future, we'll both be friends again and forget that silly mistake. After all, a mistake is meant to be a lesson and a learning process, right? And I've been having dreams about her these past few weeks. Maybe it's a sign that we need to break the silence and approach each other. Right? I hope so.
Paling sia nda suka plan sia kana kacau. Walaupun sia suka last minit buat kerja tapi I have my own pace. My own planning. Bila orang suka hati interrupt in the middle of my business. I can get really mean. And I can get very tempted to abandon the job altogether. Biar uols yang buat. pandai sangat kan?? Malas mau layan. I am still quite disturbed and I am in a foul mood now. So shoo! Go away! I have no intention to see your sugar coated smile. Mau kana tumbuk satu kali baru tau. Sia EL ni bisuk biar uols kelam kabut bisuk. Don't take me for granted. Or else you'll regret it. Don't assume I am a bionic woman who can do magic. Don't think I can't explode with anger. Period. Dat's the problem with doing a decent job with tasks given to you. Without any complain. Always yes yes yes. People tend to expect you'll do future jobs without any grumbles. Yes, I can do the job. Without any complain. But don't step on me. Once you get complacent with me, and forgot to draw the lines... jaga la... Just you wait.
Mungkin anda tidak mengenali apakah itu Anadara granosa, tapi bila saya bercakap tentang kerang mustahil orang Malaysia tidak mengenalinya kerana kerang antara makanan laut popular dan mudah didapati di pasar..? Sebenarnya kerang dalam bahasa saintifiknya ialah Anadara granosa dan tahukah anda juga kulit kerang mengandungi unsur kalsium karbonat yang tinggi selain kandungan mineral lain selain potassium dan fosforus. Kalsium karbonat antara unsur yang digunakan dalam dunia perkebunan untuk meneutralkan kandungan asid dalam tanah (meningkatkan kadar pH), oleh itu kebiasaannya tanaman akan tumbuh dengan lebih subur.
Meletakkan kulit kerang yang telah dicuci kedalam pasu orkid anda antara petua yang digunakan untuk meningkatkan kesuburan pokok tersebut. Kulit kerang yang biasanya dibuang begitu sahaja kini boleh diletakkan sebagai salah satu cara memberi nutrien tambahan kepada orkid kesayanagan anda. Tidak perlu dalam kuantiti yang banyak, cukup hanya beberapa kulit kerang sahaja sudah mencukupi.
