09.00 am – Heated up a slice.

Had soft boiled eggs and

buttered ba gua toasts for breakfast. ~yum

10.00 am – As Windows was kinda giving me problems every now and then, I thought of trying Linux. Spent the whole day installing and tweaking my computer to install and tweak Ubuntu’s Intrepid Ibex.

Honestly, I loved it. Almsot all the drivers to all the hardware to my computer was provided and bittorrent downloads were unthrottled. However, the only thing that didn’t really work well was my sound card. No matter how long I spent tweaking and trying all the different types of audio players, it just didn’t sound as nice as when I was using Windows.

01.00 pm – Took a 1 hour break before continuing.

07.30 pm – Picked up the birthday girl and

went to her favourite restaurant for her birthday dinner.

Had the most delicious mushroom soup in the world so far,

seafood a-la-king and

yam ice cream for dinner.

08.30 pm – Pumped in RM50 worth of Mobil.

09.30 pm – The shades for Vinny’s birthday tomorrow is already up.

12.00 am – zzzzzzZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzz

08.30 am – Woke up to a cup of milo with nestum,

toasts,

and a plate of mi sedap.

~yum.

12.30 pm – Went down to town using Jelutong’s coastal highway which is actually full of adverts from Nippon Paint,

Maxis and

Public Mutual.

Yeah, and direction boards as well.

Penang’s tallest.

Actually, I wanted to check out 2 badminton shops located along Jalan Kek Chuan, somewhere behind Masjid Pakistan.

The first shop that I actually went into was Teong. It’s more like a mini shop, selling very basic badminton equipments nia.

After spending about 1 minute looking around I left and went into Finn Enterprise. Boy was I surprised.

I was amazed by the variety of badminton shoes,

RCL shuttlecocks,

badminton bags and

racquets on display.

After asking Mr. Finn about the difference between the shuttlecocks, I finally chose RCL Gold, priced at RM42 per tube.

Mr. Finn’s namecard.

01.00 pm – Decided to try out Kelawai Fish Head.

The pricelist.

Placed an order with the fella here and had it

sent over in about 15 minutes.

Noticed something missing when it came.

I didn’t know that you’d have to separately order the lady’s fingers.

Spent about RM18 total for 2 persons.

The fish in the logo looks evil. 👿

04.30 pm – Break time!

07.30 pm – Had an early dinner of buttered bakua toasts and

fruits.

09.00 pm – Badminton with buddies.

12.00 am – zzzzZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzz
