This large banner at KLIA (KL Intl' Airport) basically saved my digicam!! It is promoting Malaysian tourism in commemoration of Malaysia's 50th yr anniv of independence...i saw it at KLIA whilst transiting and thought i would take a photo...only to realise that my digicam was missing!!!! I immediately returned to the terminal and boarded the plane again and hopefully found my digital cam left sitting on my seat. Thank goodness!!!!!! I bought it in Japan and it is very useful... if it were not for this banner, i would not have realised i had left my digital camera on board until i reached Penang...indeed thanks Malaysia for turning 50 next yr! U saved me my digital camera!!!!! Back in Penang! Got back on Sat night and went to have supper the delicious authentic Penang Hokkien Mee (prawn noodle soup)..YUMMY!! Got home, bathed and slept...so tired cos i completely didn't sleep the night before....the very next day, Sunday, i went to Island Plaza to meet bloggers, X,A,LC (from KL/Ipoh) and Josh...i was invited by Josh... anyways, the thing is i lost Josh's no for some unexplainable reason but i rem he said they would be at FF gym and so i went over there and found them....i had to wait 1 hr for them to finish their class but hopefully LC was too tired to join them and so i had a nice chat with him both whilst waiting for them during the class and after class when they were showering....LC is a very nice guy...i like his personality and values...esp the bit about him still putting emotion when doing it with his 'special friend' and how he can't maintain their 'special' relationship....anyways, its his private matter and so i shall not divulge too much....after we had karaoke at Red Box Gurney Plaza...thank goodness they booked...from 3pm to 6pm...too bad LC had to leave early to return to KL...X's voice is SOOO SUPER GOOD.....i really think he has a very powerful voice...wow...u really do X! Let's go for karaoke again next time:) Had a great time singing all the nice Chinese songs like 新不了情,追,中箭,如果你愿意,10 30的飛機場,and more...then went to have hawker food and X and A bought Penang biscuits bck to Ipoh....i had curry mee which was nice. Josh took me home and i bid them farewell...had a nice day...my impressions: Josh is nice cos he invited me so a BIG THANKS Josh! also he is a fellow Penang person so of cos i like him:) A i really didn't have time to know but i think his chinese name is one of the nicest i have heard and i mean it:) X is the most good looking one ...X also has a nice voice..he is also the most popular with the guys...quite a few men picking X up along this trip, two of which i was witness to, one at the gym and the other at the karaoke..wah...so nice to stand next to X, the men would then naturally also look at me,hehe, but X, do let me know how u go with the person at the gym (u know who lar..) he is cute!!...LC i got to chat with the most since we were both waiting for the others at the gym...i like his value system, kind of traditional like me when it comes to relationships....keep in touch!
This week, basically just been eating all the nice food and been watching Hong Kong TVB dramas which are really really good!!! I mean their quality production really went up...been eating like an emperor,hehe, had dimsum at Forum in Island Plaza yest for lunch with my mother then Korean at Seoul Garden Sunrise Tower with my family for dinner which is like THE best korean restaurant in the whole of Penang....all the tour groups from korea come here and also the MAATA Fair korean cultural performance group also came for their lunch....i have been an old customer of this place for 7 or 8 yrs already and i have tried almost everything on the menu, and me and my mother also know the korean couple who owns the place...i even worked here part-time for a short while before....the place is highly recommended for anyone living or visiting Penang!
