10.30 am – Had breakfast.

12.30 pm – Went to Kampung Jawa’s Top Taste for lunch.

Had economy rice.

01.30 pm – Went to find my doctor to settle my diarrhea issues.

This is how the med section of my doctor’s ‘clinic’ looks like.

Spent RM27 on natural meds.

I’m sure it’s still much cheaper and healthier than going to a drug dispensing clinic.

02.00 pm – Went to find my car doctor to settle PCQ’s demister issues.

Was told that I had to change the entire back windshield. Kesimpulannya, I have to live with a non-working demister.

02.30 pm – Went to Esplanade aka Padang Kota Lama for

Hamid ‘Pata’ Special Mee Sotong Goreng.

At first I didn’t want to eat cause we just ate like 2 hours ago. But then, when the plate arrived, I couldn’t help it.

You suck, John! For bringing me to teman you eat such an irresistible plate of mee goreng I could not NOT eat.

Maksiat!

03.30 pm – Went to find my PC doctor in 1-Stop to settle my bro’s pc startup issues.

08.00 pm – Picked up the tickets before going to

Kim Gary for dinner with the guys.

Had fries and

the very filling mix curry grill with

spaghetti.

09.30 pm – Watched Connected.
