603 views

09.00 am – Woke up. Showered. Shaved.

This is how I saved time this morning. While the eggs boil,

me sliced off a piece of lemon

into 1/16 to make

pure lemonade.

Next, I took out the half papaya and sliced it into rings.

By now, the eggs were already done. So I scooped them up using a penapis and let it cool

in normal temperatured filtered tap water.

A few minutes later.

And there you have it, breakfast.

10.30 am – Updated famouschris.

11.00 am – Watched the trailer for The Coffin.

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

Good shit man. From the trailer, it looks on par with Shutter.

12.00 pm – Lunch.

01.00 pm – Continued updating famouschris.

02.00 pm – Napped.

03.00 pm – Took a short break for a cup of mango yoghurt.

06.00 pm – Went hiking with buddies. Shawn was late so Daryl and I started our journey first.

At 1.4km is where the 46 rest hut is located. I have no idea why they call it 46. 46 meters above sea level, maybe.

At 2.5km you have 84 rest hut where biscuits, coffee and tea is served and the funds are donation based.

Lucky for us, we managed to catch the blue truck that usually brings down rubbish from Penang Hill.

We stopped by 46 rest hut on the way down to feed the monkeys.

07.00 pm – And then this fella came at 7pm. Daryl and I waited for him to run a couple of rounds in botanical gardens before heading over to Goodall Cafe for dinner.

07.30 pm – Tried Goodall’s char koay kak and

Japanese pizza for the first time. Both were okay okay nia.

09.00 pm – It was time. I only realized when I saw several cockroaches running around.

Tore up the new ones and replaced each expired cockroach poison.

09.30 pm – Visited Nasrudin who lived at the 27th floor of Green Lane Park. The lift that caters to 2 floors. It’s a pretty high density place.

Took his CPU back for repairing.

11.30 pm – How the long line looked like when Jason and I arrived.

Had my favourite beef, cabbage

and fish curry. (it should actually be called ‘soup’ cause it’s so nice, it’s drinkable)

01.30 am – zzzzzzzzZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzz

(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.

01.00 am – zzzzzZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzz

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.

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.
