but turns out they had no more units left.

No songs or shows for me. =(

Looked up the menu for things to eat.

Decided on a RM36

lamb rendang. Honestly, it was okay, but for RM36 is pushing it.

Switched my watch

to 2 hours slower.

The Fun Friday At Tiger Arms Of Upper Penang Road


10.00 am – Woke up. Did not sleep well last night. I was semi awake all the while. Can’t find a reason for it. Spent time thinking about where I can most likely find solid colored backgrounds in Penang.

11.30 am – Picked up Daryl from Spansion. Realized that we had cravings. The tom yam kind. And there’s only 1 place nearby that’s cheap and good. Bayan Baru market.

Sat at lucky number 8.

I had Lai Hoe’s with some

side dishes.


This fella below came about 15 minutes later.

02.30 pm – Updated famouschris.

John didn’t plan to eat, but followed suit after inhaling the irresistible smell of laksa.

(If you’re logged in, you’ll see the boring video below in high quality)

05.30 pm – And then Joachim called.

John had no choice but to go all the way to the beaches of Tanjung Bungah, where Joachim stays, to collect some stuff for an event tomorrow.

On the way back, this fella stopped by to refuel and while that happened, he told me about the many benefits of having a Smile card. So, atas nasihat John, I signed up for one.

07.00 pm – Updated famouschris.

08.00 pm – Dinnered at Subway, E-Gate.

Sorry for keeping you guys waiting.

Had turkey breast.

This fella ate a foot long’s worth. You monster you.

Decided to test each flavour.

After testing 1 of each, I finally found the winner of Subway’s tastiest cookie award.

Coconut. (far left)

10.00 pm – After that, Anthony requested that we go rejuvenate ourselves in a bar. =.=”

Alcoholic say la alcoholic. Yea, yea.. rejuvenatemyass.

And so we went to Tiger Arms, UPR.

Had a pint of Kilkenny and a pint of Guinness.

Several people popped in and out along the night. Like these 3.

(Removed by request)

Joline : Come la…. come la….

Joseph : Wei… behave la.. she’s just behind la..

Anthony was kinda ‘lost’ after 6 pints. 6 pints. Siao lang. And here’s proof of his ‘lostness’.
