04.30 pm – Badminton with these fellas at Ramakrishna.
06.00 pm – We were supposed to eat the Tambun-replacement-seafood-restaurant called Sin Hai Beng but it was closed.
There was this Restoran Pen Mutiara which sells curry seafood, but judging by the niceness of the building, I was pretty sure we’d get sliced like mad.
And so we went to this corner coffeeshop in Taman Iping to eat cook-fry instead.
Ate with some new and
old fellas. Note John’s new haircut.
08.30 pm – Balikz. Showered.
09.30 pm – Raffee-ed with me hungry mate.
10.30 pm – Lepak-ed in me room.
11.30 pm – Found out that malaysia-today is now blocked. I had to use an internet proxy to enter the site. Found out that MCMC was behind the move.
12.00 am – Ganja-ed with me pal.
Beraturing at Nasi Beratur.
This fella was in a political mood throughout the night. Kept talking bout Anwar, Anwar..
And then a fatass accidentally spilled a bull load of curry, right in front of me! MCB!! Drops of curry hit the left side of my hair, face, tangan, kaki, selipar. And I just showered like half an hour ago. Sigh.
09.00 am – After John showered and we walked down to Mandarin Cafe for breakfast.
I made a mistake by ordering 2 LARGE plates.
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.
The usual economy dishes from the economy rice shop ..
.. and kiam chai boey from the new chicken rice shop.
02.00 pm – Continued updating famouschris.
Nescafed while having fun.
03.00 pm – Found out about AirAsia’s Rm 0.05 promotion. Found a few good dates for traveling. Researched about another alternative destination, Manila, Philippines.
05.00 pm – Napped.
06.00 pm – Hiking.
I took some time to warm up. The guys were about 5 minutes ahead. Started to hike up at
Caught up with them but was pretty tired by then.
Stayed with Jason for awhile as it was his first time in a long time.
Continued on with him behind.
Caught up with Daryl and Shawn at 46.
Reached the yellow sign board at about
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.
Oh, there’s a new chicken / duck rice shop just opened in Island Glades. Amazingly, they had delicious looking chai boey.
And so I tried it out for the first time ever.
Famouschris rating (chai boey) : 8.5

Shawn’s best friend!
07.30 pm – Hung around my room playing CS till it was time for..
09.00 pm – ..badminton with buddies.
11.00 pm – Went home straight. I’m now trying my very best to refrain from eating heavy stuff after 10pm. Of course, I could still follow you guys to Nasmir for supper, but my eyes will take over my stomach the minute I see your food.
Instead, I had something light, considerably filling yet low in calories.
05.00 pm – 3 of these fellas took an extra day of leave to recover, so we met up for some tea time snacking at Queensbay’s KFC.
I had myself something not too filling as dinner was just around the corner, unlike the 2 giants above who had full set meals.
For the entire time, we talked about Bangkok, Bangkok, Bangkok. I could see that everyone was under the magic spell of what we like to call ‘Siam Kong Tau’.
06.00 pm – Moved over to Queensbay Starbucks as you can’t smoke in KFC. This fella in the background made use of us and bought out 6 cartons of cigarettes from Penang International Airport’s duty free sections.
Jason joined us a few minutes later.
And we continued chatting about Bangkok, Bangkok, Bagkok.
07.33 pm – Shawn arrived.
Went over to Dave’s Deli to continue our chat about Bangkok, Bangkok, Bangkok.
Tried out Dave’s Spaghetti Creamy Carbonara for the first time. I still prefer Dome’s.
Famouschris rating : 7/10
08.22 pm – As much as we’d like to continue hanging out, most of us had to go home as there’s work the following day.
The new iPhone 3G launched at a bloody unbelievable price of $US 199!! MCB!
Surely it’s less than RM 1000. Surely. I’m on for it man. So on!

After lunch, I sliced myself some watermelon.
01.00 pm – Continued updating famouschris.

Mount Kinabalu. Jom pijak!
06.00 pm – Watched a few music videos.
Came across this.. and became addicted to it! (bobbed my head as I was listening to it)
*bob* *bob* *bob*
I ‘heart’ house ^.^
07.30 pm – I wanted to buy fish porridge again, but the stall was closed. So I went to buy the next healthiest thing….
11.00 am – Was farting a lot. A LOT. and the farts were ‘not-so-dry’ kinda farts. Had to toilet bowl my ass each time. And it hurts. My asshole hurts. Stings. Damn.
12.00 pm – Geoffrey came to visit.
12.30 pm – Lunch.
01.30 pm – Was choosing from my list of movies to watch. Decided on Juno.
02.00 pm – Juno. (Was doing a lot of toilet traveling in between. Damn, it hurts. Shit!)
Memorable quotes on staying happy together that I learned from Juno.
Juno MacGuff : Dad, it’s not about that. I just need to know if it’s possible for two people to stay happy together forever, or at least for a few years.
Mac MacGuff : In my opinion, the best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what have you, the right person will still think the sun shines out your ass. That’s the kind of person that’s worth sticking with.
