banana toasts and

soft boiled eggs.

11.25 am – Went to Public Bank,

took a number and waited for my turn to fix my online account and Visa problems.

12.00 pm – Waited quite long although I’m just 5 numbers in front. Turns out there was an issue with a family trying to open 3 savings account together, husband, wife and an elderly lady. Decided to go eat lunch at Evergreen vegetarian restaurant opposite and come back later.

Lunch.

It was actually the stuff I ordered 4 days ago. So fast.

So fast!

A total of 160 catnip seeds. Damn! That’s a lot!

04.57 pm – Afternoon break.

05.14 pm – The sunflower in my garden is now ready for harvesting.

And so I snipped off the brown, dry flower

and removed the leaves, leaving only the seeds.

Next, I started to plant one of the most effective mosquito repellents in the world.

The super tiny catnip seeds.

Planted a row of it.

07.37 pm – Went to Tesco for some grocerying. I was kinda surprised when the cashier asked me if I wanted to pay for the plastic bags or buy an eco bag as it was ‘no plastic bag Monday’ for all shopping centers in Penang.

As it was just RM1, I thought why not?

The fruits and vegetables bought.

The other stuffs.

deep fried fish,

and quarters.

Breakfast of the day. And, my oh my, the Sunshine’s honeydew does really taste good.

11.00 am – Went for a haircut.

Before.

After.

12.00 pm – Grocerying.

Tesco was still in Raya mood.

Bought yoghurt again. Seriously, I think I’m liking it. It’s slowly making its way into my short list of favourites.

A new shower head for the old shower head that doesn’t seem to do it’s job well anymore.

Eggs as usual.

12.30 pm – Ate from my favourite nasi campur Melayu stall

in Tesco’s foodcourt.

01.00 pm – Went home for lunch.

~yum

Had another quarter.

01.30 pm – Fixed in the new shower head.

Old.

New.

04.00 pm – Had coffee after such a long time. Was abstaining from it as I had my diarrhea issues for the past 2 weeks.

06.00 pm – Hiking with buddies the couple. Today, I became the lonely walking lamp post. Sadly, my should-have-been-walking-lamp-post-partner was unavailable 😥

(Nolah. Actually it’s not as bad as it sounds la. I think Phaik Chin was lonelier longer than me 👿 )

Along the way, one could see the hillsides covered with ‘blankets’. Lots of ’em.

Chics & Lesbians ahead.

Chics & Lesbians ahead. 7 of them! 😯

And then we arrived at Semangat 46. Just Shawn and I.

Playing with friends and family while waiting for Phaik Chin to arrive.

About 15 minutes later of not seeing her, we decided to launch search and rescue. Sebenarnya, Phaik Chin got sesat dalam hutan. Nasib baik she wore pink, so it was kinda easy to spot her among the greens.

07.00 pm – Touched base.

Had pink jambus.

She had coconuts.

He had (I dunno what).

07.30 pm – And then we went to Evergreen again.

And it was very packed, as usual.

Had the same stuff as Saturday’s.

The red bean soup. Quality? Fail.

08.30 pm – Scouted for stuff in Cold Storage.

Bought a bottle of aftershave.

Saw Gurney’s new Big Apple Donuts & Coffee, replacing Pastasia.

11.30 pm – Had a not so healthy supper. Was craving for Nasi Tembok like mad!

Biscuits and

milk.

3,546 views

10.00 am – Woke up. Breakfasted.

Tried Dutch Lady’s low fat mixed berries yoghurt for the first time.

~yum

12.30 pm – Had lunch.

03.00 pm – Went to the legendary Cargas to meet

these fellas.

Thanks Nat for the killer drumstick.

10 minutes later…

(How can 1 Cargas killer fried chicken be enough?)

One thing I like about Cargas is that they keep a consistent supply of serviettes throughout it’s operating hours from 8.30am to 4.30pm.

04.00 pm – Moved on over to Queensbay and collected the tickets for Eagle Eye.

05.15 pm – Watched Eagle Eye.

FC Rating : 7.5 / 10

08.15 pm – Went to Evergreen Vegetarian Restaurant in Pulau Tikus for dinner.

It was packed!

The very wide array of dishes to choose from.

I had 5 different dishes together with

a bowl of bee ko moey.

09.30 pm – And then all of us hopped on over to Belissa Row’s Haagen-Dazs.

Shawn and Gabe.

Lee Li and Phaik Chin.

Gabe, Daryl, Jason, Anthony.

After a tough time choosing what to order, I narrowed down the selection to this,

this or

this.

Flower Blossom looked tempting but the portioning looks huge. No doubt, Brownie Explosion was enticing but it also looked overly sweet at the same time.

The winner = Belgian Waffle Dream

Jason’s Brownie Explosion.

The girls’ cookie combo.

Anthony’s Mango Tango. Lemma, sounds so tak ngam.

11.00 pm – And then we went to Tiger Arms.

Had the usual Guinness / Kilkenny.

Played Tiger Arms’s fusball for the first time.

(The high quality boring video below plays only if you’re logged in)

2 hours later, these fellas came.

Anthony, nah your pic.

02.00 am – Wanted to supper at Nasi Tembok but skipped it since the line was like soooooooooooooooooooooo long. I’m sure there were twenty over people waiting in line and if each person took 1 minute to order we would have to wait AT LEAST 20 minutes.

And so we went to Jelutong market’s economy rice, which was close. Sat at the midnight nasi kandar stall across the road before Andy suggested

McDonald’s.

My first ever experience having fillet o fish and fries at this hour.

04.00 am – zzzzzzzZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
