Barcelona day 1

On 8th of June 2009, Arun, Ashok, Jo-anne, Sao Lee and I took a break to Barcelona!

On the first day, we decided we should walk to La Ramblas, so that we can view a few of Gaudi's work on the way:

and a stop at Zara :) (Zara's not that much cheaper in Spain)

And we reached La Ramblas the famous street in Barcelona (kinda reminds me of the cleaner and more modern version of petaling street)!

and we went to this market that sells fruits cheaper than what we get at uk

and the twins love pineapples!

and then its dinner time

Random Trip to Penang Part 2: The Company

I have been MIA due to examinations. Finished my 2nd paper today, had my first on Monday. Screwed up first paper and missed a chance to score 90 in today paper =.= aih I'm just to used to last minute study zzz

Anyways, I do not intend this post to rue my missed chances. Here's the second part of my Random Penang Trip post:

I went over to Hafriz's place at 2am because I was too lazy too wake up early in the morning, get stucked in the traffic and drive to his house. Watched Man U tapau ARSEnal with Hafriz and Jieqiang before heading to bed hehehe

We set off when See Tho arrived at 9am. Hafriz was the chauffeur of the trip XD

The people who went with me. Clockwise: Jieqiang, See Tho, Iu Tjun(with See Tho) and Hafriz.

After a much needed brunch at Bidor, we arrived at Penang about 2 hours later and met up with Iu Tjun, who stays in Penang. It was damn funny when we were all making our regular stop at Tesco's toilet. See Tho had already unzipped his pants with his weiner out when Hafriz was approaching him. All of the sudden See Tho muttered a random and misleading question to Hafriz, "Damn short, right?". Hafriz gave a shocked look and I immediately burst into laughter. See Tho ws actually referring to the position of the cubicle LOL

Iu Tjun is one pure Penangite I tell you, drive super fast although he knows we're tailgating him =.= Driving a huge car on small roads with motocyclist and pedestrian doesn't help even with drivers of Hafriz's calibre.

Iu Tjun then brought us to our "playground" after lunch.

See Tho being veli, veli happy as a prisoner in Fort Cornwallis lol

Kids playing with guns.

Overkill!! See Tho bombing one poor tiny kuku bird with one huge canon.

Caution! Wild horse kissing/making out!

Went to Iu Tjun's condo and chill before going out for our next plan. Thanks Iu Tjun for letting us stay over =)

Snapped this before heading out for dinner and "jalan-jalan" at Gurney Drive.

While I was shooting this, I didn't realise that the others have left for the lift. I hastily left and right after I entered the lift, Hafriz said this to me, "Actually, we thought of leaving you there wan but I saw the 'Jangan buang sampah(No Littering)' sign so we can't leave you there." *Everyone bursts into laughter*. FML.

Readers, you can vote/comment about my version of FML above:
1. Yes, your life is fucked. 2. You deserved it.

I went =.= but it was fucking funny though. Hafriz was damn lame in the entire trip hahaha

The three Musketeers posers at Gurney Drive.

"If it swims, we have it". Hafriz was suggesting that it would a nice joker someone were to dine here and asked the waiter, "Ada sperm tak? Got sperm?". Are-Oh-Eff-Ell man dot dot dot...

Watched X-Men Origins: Wolverine at midnight. We went drinking by the beach area near Iu Tjun's condo. Bought a bottle of "Kwai Fei", some lychee flavoured alcoholic drink earlier in Tesco.

The host GG-ed just after 3 cups of "Kwai Fei" + mixers.

Shot this at the beach on a 30 seconds exposure.

Went to mamak because Iu Tjun was not feeling too well. Had to make him eat to make him feel better. We were all hungry at that time anyways.

Left Penang the next day after lunch at Lorong Selamat. Didn't realyl do much. Short trip but super fun and humuorous trip. Spent damn a lot though, damn painful =(

Read about the food we ate in part 1 here.

Random Trip to Penang Part 1: The Food

Went to Penang last Thursday. It was a very random trip. Don't exactly know who mentioned it but I got surprised when See Tho and Hafriz asked me whether i wanted to join them for this trip a week before. I was in a short dilemma because my first paper is on the 11th and study week isn't exactly a good time to go for trips. I was stuck in my trains of thoughts for a while and I was ready to reject the offer until the thought of graduating came across my mind. If I don't join them for this trip, I may not be able to join them again in the same trip anymore especially when I'm working. I agreed on the spot.

I'm not the type who would miss any fun stuff, unless I'm not really, really not into it.

I went to Hafriz's house the night before to stay over and watch Manchester United's Champions League match against ARSEnal, which they won 1-0 =P It's a pity that they couldn't score more =(

We set off at 9am, stopping by at Bidor for brunch. We ate at Pun Chun, a chinese kopitiam which apparently quite famous, I think.

The Dried Wan Tan Mee Hafriz See Tho and Jieqiang ordered.

I ate the Curry Chicken Wan Tan Mee.

We reached Penang at about 2pm. Met up at Iu Tjun at Tesco. He then brought us to New World Park for lunch.

Prawn Mee. They call it Hokkien Mee in penang

Rojak Pasembur in Penang is very different from the rojak you get in KL. They have much more variety of stuff which you can add yourself. It is like the Lobak you see in kopitiams here.

According to Iu Tjun, this is the Chinese version of Rojak. Tasted slightly more sour than the one above.

Forgot to take picture of the nice Ice Kacang we ate :(

We went Gurney Drive for dinner. According to my sister, the prices went up a lot because it was a tourist attraction. Well, in fact, a lot of food places in Penang were more expensive than KL by almost double. Only the locals know where to eat cheap and good food. Didn't take food photos because we were hungry and it wasn't that fantastic. We don't know which stores are good unfortunately :( I ordered Pasembur again and Char Kueh Teow. pasembur was quite good but the Char Kueh Teow was average.

We went to Lorong Selamat the next day for lunch. I suggested that place because I heard that there's a nice Char Kueh Teow place there. The other famous Char Kueh Teow is the Sister's Char Kueh Teow at Jalan McCallister, which I ate the last time I was in Penang.

We ordered the large portion because we were hungry. As expected the portion was smaller than we normally expect in KL, it is probably slightly larger the the regular size we get here in KL. The prawns were huge though!! Fresh as well. Guess how much it cost? RM8.50. Yes, for a plate of Char Kueh Teow and we waited more than half an hour for it. That's how famous this stall is.

This is the Nasi Lemak Goreng. Ate this for dinner before heading home.

Whoops!!! That's not on Penang hahahaha We ate that at Bandar Menjalara, Kepong. FYI, you can get it in a mamak called Spicy Kitchen if you have the burning urge to try it. Seriously, Spicy Kitchen sounded like some fancy restaurant when it is just a mamak stall. Swt man....

Will update more about the trip in the next post =) Don't wanna cramp so many photos in one post. Till then!

Check out the Melaka post here as well.
