The Monday Where Andy Tai Joined Us For Hiking

11.00 am – Breakfasted. Showered.

Eating apples can’t be any

easier.

12.00 pm – CS.

01.30 pm – Lorong Susu chicken/duck rice. Daryl took Anthony and I to try out this place in Lorong Susu which sells chicken/duck rice and kiam chai boey.

Being the undecided me, I ordered both chicken + duck.

Believe it or not, they serve BOTTOMLESS kiam chai boey.

BOTTOMLESS man! Only in Penang you get this shit.

03.00 pm – Snooker-ed.

04.30 pm – Siesta-ed.

05.30 pm – Drove to Botanical Gardens with Andy and Daryl.

06.00 pm – Hiking.

We were actually pretty fast today. Usually it takes 20 minutes but we reached 46’s hut in 14 minutes.

After a minute’s rest, we proceeded towards 84.

Clowning around the permanent forest estate reserve yellow signboard, located

1 minute away from Hut 84.

The 2 items below are what motivates us for hiking up. If it had alcohol in it, Anthony would definitely be among the legendary ah peks.

The place is run by volunteers. The drinks and snacks we eat are totally free. However, there’s a donation box which Hut 84 and it’s caretaker survives on.

Were at the base by 7.30pm.

08.00 pm – Dinnered @ Gurney Plaza Food Court. We had fun talking cock.

They both had nasi padprik ayam while I ordered something a little different,

nasi ayam kicap.

Bought a chicken floss bun from the bakery next door as it wasn’t filling enough.

09.30 pm – Showered. Discovered that Anwar’s debate was tomorrow.

10.00 pm – Checked out UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites. Got carried away when I saw Japan’s Shinto Itsukushima Shrine of Miyajima, Hiroshima. In turn, it lead me to check out Tokyo’s wikitravel guides. Was engulfed in Japan’s culture for 3 hours. There really are lots and lots of things to do in Japan but it’s pretty expensive compared to Malaysian standards. The $Yen really is strong.

Kesimpulannya :

  • A return flight from KLIA to Tokyo’s Narita costs about a total of RM3000 on MAS.
  • A BUDGET meal in Japan costs about RM15.
  • The cheapest mode of accommodation are Youth Hostels which starts from RM50/night.
  • An average pint of beer during HAPPY HOURS costs RM15.
  • Cover charges between the range of RM60 – RM120 are applied in clubs during weekends.

08.30 am – Woke up.

09.00 am – After John showered and we walked down to Mandarin Cafe for breakfast.

I made a mistake by ordering 2 LARGE plates.

Akibatnya.

09.30 am – Grocerying in Tesco.

Sesame oil for oil pulling, peanut butter for breakfast and strawberries… hmm… strawberries are a first.

I have tried almost every type of shampoo before, from Clear to Pantene to Sunsilk but none seemed to work as well as Sebamed’s anti dandruff. Although Nizoral’s the best, it’s pretty small in quantity and pricey. So, Sebamed it is.

10.30 am – Went for a haircut.

11.00 am – Showered.

11.30 am – Checked mails. Read RPK’s That Reminds Me, TheStar.

Spain kicked Germany’s ass to win Euro 2008.

Caught up with them but was pretty tired by then.

As we were about to go down, Jason appeared.

After resting for awhile, we continued down and we saw a baby snake.

Reached the bottom.

08.00 pm – Gurney Plaza’s food court.

Ordered from our usual favourite stall.

The 3 of us had the same ..

.. nasi padprik ayam.

09.00 pm – Visited my cousin’s gym. Enquired about the fees and stuff like that. Although the gym that I have been going to for the past 2 years is conveniently located near my place, they have no proper instructors to guide you. All this while, I have been working out based on the videos and articles I see on the internet. It’s actually kinda hard when you have questions and don’t know how to get them answered.

And during Chinese New Year, my cousin, Shane did mention to me about the full time instructors and the products of his gym which includes Mr Penang, Mr Penang Junior, Celebrity Fitness instructors, etc. So I thought, why not give it a try. It should be better as the instructors are there in person to help you out if you have any questions. Moreover, it’s cheap at RM50 monthly and a lifetime membership of RM60, which is awesome as you can stop and come back years later.

09.30 pm – Showered. Rested.

Plastered 3 of these onto

the sink,

the wall near the floor and

the kitchen.

12.00 am – Did another site for bro’s friends.

02.00 am – Sleep.
