鞋来鞋去

13。12。2008

承蒙杰菲力和慧勤的关照,多了“十分红”的演唱会入场券,我才有机会去感染很久没有接触的现场LIVE气氛,让自己觉得有活力、年轻起来。演唱会之前下了一场倾盆大雨,整个草场堆积了水。哈哈。。。观看演唱会的心情?心是热的、澎湃的;脚呢?是冷的、恶心的,甚至起鸡皮疙瘩。为什么呢?因为那泥水渗透你的鞋内,你的十个脚趾就浸在污泥浊水内,你说胃不胃?一场免费的演唱会,换几钟头酸到痹的双脚和一双美鞋,值得吗?还好啦,有周华健和哈林,肯定值回票价几倍酱咯!















15。12。2008
我绝对需要一双好鞋来支撑我的双脚、十个脚趾和脚底板。一双好鞋可以带我走很长、很远的路,做很多很多的事。皇天不负苦心人,叮叮叮!我终于猎到了一双可可达尔鳄鱼鞋,而且价值实惠,美丽可观,RM55酱就搞定,比起哈奇巴比狗鞋便宜很多又好看很多酱,长期来讲是值得投资的!还有高跟鞋、运动鞋、走街串巷鞋。。。酱多要买,真是头痛!女人,一双岂够止渴咧?男人,忍着点咯!

Penang Food Hunt 2008

Departure
6th December 2008: Departed early in the morning from Taiping, Hong Kia’s house at 9am to Penang. Gals were really ‘mo’ one lor. Driving all the way smoothly until we reached Penang Bridge, so crowded. We were going to be late, and we were! We were the last team to register at 11am sharp, when the organizer had started the briefing.

ANG ANG Everywhere...
Went into the hall, the hall was ANG ANG coz the theme was RED, so all participants wore reds. Wow…very HONG ar! The briefing was half way through, I didn’t make any sense out of it! I thought we were the only team who didn’t know how this Food Hunt games to be played. So blur, especially with two blur and two not so blur persons as team members :P The organizer explained what were the Leg 1, Leg 2, challenges, treasures, and tulips. Well, tulips? It’s flower or what? Hahaha…it’s the guide for road direction!

Flag Off, challenges came ahead...
Alright, we were asked to go into the car and wait for the Hunt to be flagged off. Now, we got Leg 1: Google all the way, which requested us to visit four given eating places (google maps were given) to get the stamps and submit at Cititel (advised to complete within 2 hours), choose one to enjoy the food and take one creative photos of us; Challenge 2 to take 3 creative shots at Penang heritage and develop the photos and submit at the finishing point. Challenge 1 to be collected at Digi Centre at Gurney Plaza; 4 Treasures to be answered, bought the necessary items, and submit at the finishing point too.

Didn't know HOW but BUSY...
BIG HEAD now! What and how should we get started with all these Leg, Challenge and Treasures? We didn’t familiar with Penang roads. Hong kia was our only hope. Without proper planning, we opted to go to the first eating place, Tze Zu Lin Vegetarian Restaurant. Hahaha…looking at the Google maps, nobody was able to tell how to reach the place. Esther, Hong kia, cracking their head with no idea; me? Don’t bother me with that, please! Yan jie jie, no time to read maps lar, she was responsible to drive, drive and drive, where got extra hands and eyes leh?

Busy all the way! One kept driving and asking the rest how and where? Go straight? Left? Right? One was reading the maps and trying to make sense out of the pieces! One was calling friends and asking the directions; while the other one trying to solve the treasures and sms-ing friends to crack the head together. Ho ho ho…could you imagine the picture of 4 cha bos in the car doing different things at one time?

Invisible Honeyman
Oh, not-to-be-missed, there’s one invisible honeyman got busy with us. US? Not really us. It’s to SHE – Esther, his dear. Who? Who leh? Ma si from Ta Sam Pa geh Da La Pa, Jeffrey Tan lor! Kept busy calling his dear every one hour (more than 5 times during the whole hunt, I supposed) until we all called it a stop! He uh, ka ka cau cau nia. We know lar, missing his dear so much when she’s not around! So, appreciate more when she’s beside you ya…:P

Jialat! No eyes see...
At last, went to Gurney and got the Challenge 1 sheet (answer 5 Malay kuih with correct Malay names and submit at New World Food Court). Then, we were heading to the eating place. We reached there finally. Yes, we did it BUT with 1 hour plus effort! Haha…The place was so near, yet so far for us! Jiatlat lor! First place took 1 hour plus, how about the rest? No eyes see! Eat first, the stomach was making noise by now.

With very quick motion, we finished the food and heading to the rest of the eating places to obtain the stamps. All were nearby, performance after eating really different lor. We finished the task at last within 15 mins and rushed to submit Challenge 1 at Cititel and to the next destination, submit Leg 1 at New World Food Court and time for Leg 2.

Fool around @ Food around...
Jor…a sea of red shirt people hanging around New World Food Court already. So many reached there before us! Fast, we gotta be fast to finish Leg 2, so that we could start Leg 3. What we got for Leg 2? 10 questions to be answered, the answers were around the food courts at this area. Another BIG BIG head for four of us. Why ne? Coz the teasers didn’t make sense to us. We didn’t understand what the question want at all. Really sweating lor this time …

Passed half an hour, still had no clue out of 10 questions. Really no patience for that already. Aiya…we got the vouchers for food here. So, the best we could do is SIT and EAT, the questions, NO BOTHER lar, cin cai filled in, cin cai submit lar. Enjoy some food here: pancake (still considered good), popiah (so watery with the fillings geh?), chestnut water (so sweet!), some sushi (to be eaten in the car later)…not an ideal place for good food, this was what we thought.
After eating, we gave our answers - Bak Zhang lar, Nice Day lar, Japanese Eel lar, all in BUT we knew none was correct, just for the sake of submission :P Oh yea…we had earned 10 bonus point for making a nice APOM. Esther was our representative. The APOM made by Esther, of course, YUMMY! We finished it all :P
Kan Cheong lor...
By 4pm, we started our Leg 3. Hopefully, we were able to do this more rights than wrongs. We had Spice Trail for Leg 3 with tulips given. What we needed to do was follow the tulips to reach different destinations and answer all 20 questions accordingly. The answers were on the signboard of the shops around. This one real Qi Kit lor. Love this part the most! Even we needed to squeeze our brain, but it’s fun when you were able to make sense and get the answer. BRAVO!

All the way fun, got BIG head, got the answers (right or wrong, didn’t know lar :P). Till we were heading to Bukit Gedung, we encountered our problem with direction coz the gate as per tulips shown was CLOSED. Closed, BIG stuff to us, meaning we started to get LOST. We were not local! How to make the rest? Making few rounds around, wasting some time, making calls to the organizer, finally we got the place. This was crazy! We felt annoyed, of course. The organizer should know it by first hand! Kept our temperature low, we continued our trails to find answers for Leg 3.

When everyone got exhausted...
It was around 6.45pm, the sky was getting dark. Now, we had 4 more questions to go. Exhausted was what I could tell at that moment. We needed to complete all questions and submit Leg 3, Challenge 2 and Treasures at finishing point, Ford Cornwallis. All of us, opted for “GIVE UP lor”, too tired to find way now, let’s heading to the finishing point by now. Gotta follow the tulips still coz we didn’t know how to get to Ford Cornwallis. We did stop and try to answer the remaining fours, but brain cells were dead by now.

By 7pm, we reached Ford Cornwallis, with our answer sheets, our bought items, no photos being developed, we submitted whatever we had, whatever we could. Where’s the tent? We couldn’t see. The surroundings were dark. We made fool of ourselves again, made a BIG round with tired feet, and finally we found the organizer under the tree, which was so insignificant to see. Ghost knew they were there! Another frustrating point, for sure! Really heating up temperature of us. How many mini mistakes had the organizer done? Aiyo…Please review at their post-mortem if they hope to get a more successful and well-response Food Hunt for next year!

What we got...
Penang Food Hunt 2008, we didn’t came for prize. We came for experience. We came for fun. While things prepared by the organizer may make sense to most Penangkia, how about the NOT LOCAL?

Penang Food Hunt 2008, our first treasure hunt activity. We understand by now, before kicking off for anything else, we need a proper planning, so you’ll be able to finish the tasks and challenges given in time.

Penang Food Hunt 2008, four blurred gals joined the games. Without getting clear the whole picture of it, the games flagged off and came to the end so soon. Four gals were hunting the FOOL instead for the FOOD.

Penang Food Hunt 2008, came to the end, yet it’s just the beginning of the story for the gals for other hunts :P BRAVO! Gals!

来一杯清水

咖啡很香,我却不懂得欣赏,亦极少机会会去喝咖啡,因为承受不起它的副作用-- 心跳加速、少许晕眩、上厕所次数频密。。。久而久之,还得承受钙质的流失,导致骨骼疏松症。

故此,茶就变成是我最常点的饮料。咦,有奶茶替代咖啡也不赖嘛。当然,咖啡和奶茶的香味各有异,那得视个人喜好而定,欣赏的程度肯定不同。

但,奶茶也有它的副作用,系于点喝它的人吧。最近觉得身体对奶茶不是很承受得起,饮用过后,心脏没有力、呼吸有点困难、整个人有心无力。。。这老化迹象没有这样快?这样早吧?

咳。。。管得着吗?身体是自己的,若承当不起就别勉强。换个角度来看,没有了咖啡,没有了奶茶,人生未必就从此无趣。

事实若是如此,好好接受,换个口味不就得了。偶尔,来一杯清水,我想,也是大快人心,舒畅无比。人生如清水般清澈,简单许多!还是清水好!

结果呢?

我不听话咯,跑去公园跑步,因为真的很想好好儿流一身汗。结果呢?,结果脚又拉筋,感觉紧绷,走路时都会撤到,很不舒服。睡觉时,平放都觉得很不舒服。哇靠!

从上一次马拉松受伤到现在,都已经休息了好一阵子了,不敢让脚操之过劳。结果呢?旧患还是重犯。要怎么做,脚才会恢复像以前一样,任我怎么走,怎么跑都可以?莫非是老化迹象?神啊,救救我啊!

What's real? What's unreal?

Wow...got a lot of blur stories to share. I think my brain is not functioned properly for recognisation, verification, recall, bla bla bla...

Story 1:
I have spent 15 mins to start a car engine. Oh, GOSH! The story is the car is not mine. It's my brother's. So? He's a car-lover. The little Kancil has been modified fully into Mira. Sounds COOL, right? Well, that's not the big deal but the car has 3 keys, applied differently for door, bonnet and starter. So, I have applied the wrong key, trying to start the engine. Well, frustrated enough, I had to call my brother up to ask, for three times coz I failed to follow his words. He's of course in the dreaming mode lor, and got irritating with my stupid question, me either. So, with his unawaken face, he went down from Condo and started the engine for me. Uh, this's damn crazy!

Story 2:
I woke up in the midnight to go to the toilet. Just walked into the room and blanketed myself, i felt wanna go to peep again. Alright, this is a bit insane. While i was peeping, i was thinking "did I ever go to toilet before this second time?"....arggghhh...I can't differenciate if i were in the dreaming or i really performed the action! Gone mad lor, me!

Story 3:
A friend called me while I'm still in the dream. Asking me about the cure for dengue. I have answered all his questions and fall into sleep again. While I woke up later, I was wondering if my friend called me this morning?

Argghhh...what's real, what is unreal? What's wrong, especially myself? ho ho ho...that drives me crazy!

失魂鬼,穿破头!

搬来新地方两个月,还没来得及好好收拾,整理。趁今天心情好,烫了两个小时的衣服,可以穿上整个月吧,不用烦(我最怕烦的啦)。接着,整理衣服、日常用品、书本和纸张(一大堆)。。。

好啦,搞了大半天,终于收拾完毕。要收的收,要丢的丢,房间总算像房间样了。到厨房去,正要把垃圾给绑好再拿出去丢,就在站起来的那一刻,忘了头上的哪一个水喉,哎呀!痛死我了!那一瞬间,我痛到站不起来,说不出话。

回到房间,开始幻想若像做戏一样,碰撞后没事还可以站起来走动,然后,才发现流血,而后晕倒。想都怕!本以为普通的撞伤,不痛就好。收拾当儿觉得头有阵阵痛,就用手稍微触摸,按摩一下。怎么手指感觉水水的?看一下,原来是血!哇,赶紧冲向镜前检察,真的有血啊。还好不是大量那一种,要不我即刻会当场晕过去。还好,无伤大雅。可能下回你见到我时,脑袋会有些迟钝或失忆咯,莫见怪 :P

头,这一刻还是痛的 ;-( 真是失魂鬼,头也给穿破!

做,不做?想,不想?

有些事情,做了,会让你心满意足;
有些事情,做了,会让你后悔莫及。
有些事情,重复做,会让你熟能生巧;
有些事情,重复做,会让你渐生厌恶。
有些事情,不做,会让你心安理得;
有些事情,不做,会让你悔不当初。
做,好过没做?
没做,好过做?

有些事情,想了,会让你甜蜜十分;
有些事情,想了,会让你心痛不已。
有些事情,重复想,会让你释怀放下;
有些事情,重复想,会让你走火入魔。
有些事情,不想,会让你心开意解;
有些事情,不想,会让你挂念十分。
想,好过不想?
不想,好过想?

做,还是不做?想,还是不想?

不解的为什么。。。

什么世界来的?
这个世界注定有不公平的存在。公道自在人心,有理说不清。我有太多却又不能理解的为什么。别人做的都是对的(就算是无理的),而自己做的在别人眼里就是无理或是你应该做的。别人的眼光和看法,不去理会就没事了?或许应该默默的接受?哑子吃黄莲,有苦自己往肚吞?难道就别无选择了吗?

没有答案的为什么。。。
为什么邻居的空地不停放车,要放到我家的门口?难道我家的空地没什么作用,就是留给你专用的?

为什么自己家的空地停放车,还要遭人刮花?放一辆刮一辆?

为什么家人朋友的车必须都停放在屋内,搞得空间都没有,而屋外的空地必须让给无赖的邻居停放他们的车?

为什么你对一个人好的时候,他不会记得。但,只要你做坏一件事,不用你提,他永远都记得。

为什么别人找你帮他解决问题,好心没好报,他还要赖你,甚至说你多管闲事?

为什么欠你钱的人过得比你还要逍遥?你跟他讨钱还要想尽办法说好话?

为什么人总是喜欢听假话?不好听话是比较吃耳,可是是真心为你好,他说你别有居心?

为什么单身不正常?为什么你还没有拍托?为什么你眼角这么高?为什么他不错,你不考虑?

为什么天气晴朗,却会无缘无故的心情低落?

为什么晚上会失眠,就算已经筋疲力尽了?

为什么有这么多的为什么?可以不要这些烦死人的为什么吗?

不属于地球
这个世界就是这么的丑陋,人性就是这么的恶劣?真的受不了的话,或许应该离开地球,到别的行星生活。是荒想,是无稽之谈,是为了郁闷的心情找一个空间。。。

雨后邂逅

见不到,会很想念
见到,会很开心
想见,不一定会出现
大多数,不会如愿以偿

可以做的,只有等待
你给的,属于惊喜
习惯了,这样就好
不敢奢求

今天,见到了
喜出望外的惊喜
原来,我要的不多
只要你偶尔的记得我

不用多说
你我的默契属于雨后
懂了,不会难过
因,很心满意足了。。。

Sad lo me…

I was in the midst of going back home before next appointment. My car was stopped in front of traffic light. It’s red. Just that few second, the car behind me banged into my back. I was out of shock, of course. What the hell was this fella behind me doing?

Immediately I went down from car and looked at my car. I truly showed my impatience to the fella. What on earth were you doing in the afternoon? You were Indian. You didn’t fasting. Did you out of your mind? Did you fall into sleep? See, what the damn thing had you done? How come there’s cow driving on the road!!! So unbelievable!

The story now -- one of the sensors was damaged. The bumper was loosening. The bonnet cover was caved in. There’re scratches spoilt the paint. Serious or not, these would take two days for the whole course of repairing. Sad lo me…to see my lou gong zai injured this way!

Thing that frustrated me the most was the carelessness of that fella. For how many times my old car and now, this new one, have been hit by careless and idiotic drivers. All the times, I was in static condition. The idiot came and just hit. Or, it's me who don't know how to drive? I should drive airplane next time. I think sky is safer!

Mata, please keep those cows and pigs in the place they entitled for. Don’t ever let them drive on the road, it causes danger to other road users! Pleazzzz la wei…

My fire is still burning right now!

夜光会

中秋节,夜光会,是乎好久好久没举办了。今年心血来潮,妈妈问要不要搞一个夜光会,我说好,老弟也说好。妈妈开心到像嫦娥飞上天 (是夸张一点点)。就这样,妈妈召集了三户人家,一家准备一两样,就这样轻而一举,两桌面的食物,有nasi lemak、红豆糖水、炸鸡翼、云吞和虾、玉粟糕(妈妈的拿手糕点,好久没尝过了)、豆腐卜、蛋糕、燕菜等等,当然还少不了压轴重点食物—月饼!一个中秋晚会就这样形成了。

一边享用着食物,一边嘻哈谈笑,还一边忙着点灯笼,还不忘了偶尔抬头望一望远挂夜空那一轮皎洁的明月,过足中秋瘾,十分享受!不用花很多钱,只是一个很简单的聚会,就产生了无限的欢乐。快乐就是这样简单,幸福就是这样简单。你的中秋又怎样过?

我想说“别吝啬你的爱”
中秋节,月圆人团圆。游子可能没办法特地赶回家乡过中秋,无所谓,只要记得打通电话给家里的老人家,呈上你暖暖地祝福,我想,他们就已经很开心了。老人家,老了怕孤独,也比较会耍脾气哦(最会口不对心,虽说无所谓,其实是很在意的)! 甭管他们说不用不用,站在他们的立场想想,他们其实最需要的是什么?对了,你的关爱,就像小时候他们怎样无微不至地关爱你一样。不管是那一个季节,记得你的小小关爱,可以减少他们对你的思念哦!就别吝啬你的爱。

Shape Run '08

ho ho oh, 24 August 2008, one big fine day! Shape Run '08 organised by Shape and Men's Health magazines, took part by 2,000 participants. This is my first time involved in public organised event. Walkathon, marathon, never have the experience before, how to call it a life? haha...so not-to-be-missed this time. Moreover, the Shape run came with an attractive goodies bag worth RM300 which has become the reason of the participation for some.














Our gang, some took part in 10km run (to challenge our endurance and you may stand a chance to win fabulous prizes, one metal could have done the good job :D) and some 5km fun run (by accidentally registered). Hong kia was the funniest case, accidentally registered into male 10km category, able to fix the situation at the very last minute, before flag off.

The most impressive one would be the prenancy woman I saw in the path. I think she's in her 5-6 months' prenancy, and she was able to complete the whole 10km run. Amazing, isn't it? Feel the difference you could have in life? Then, be creative but be yourself first of all.

Yeh, all of us were able to reach the finishing line even not among the winners, but I felt great coz the whole process of running was enjoyable. I even experienced the cramped leg, but thanks to one funny uncle participant, because of his encouragement, I was able to finish the whole run within the time I have set initially. I couldn't walk properly now but I believe to be recovered fully in two three days soon coz had sought the treatment from doctor this morning. What an unforgettable experience!

岁月流逝的那一瞬间
我,是跟着向前不懈?

沙巴亚庇逍遥游(六)

激流划艇 Water Rafting
早起的鸟儿有虫吃。今天不是要吃虫,而是有紧张又刺激的
巴达斯河(Padas River)激流划艇挑战在前。六点钟,大伙儿便起身准备。用了早餐后,我们便到楼下的咖啡馆外等候Exotic Adventure的人员来接载我们去保佛(Beaufort)火车站。

等着等着,我们又开始照相啦,看似大伙儿还在睡眠状态。而后,负责人,George来到,可车子还没到。他简短地帮我们介绍关于激流划艇。还说,我们这一组人女孩子占多,最好待会儿的另一组人,男生多一点,那么,划起艇来会比较平衡。多数的划艇经验,男生会比较不喜欢和太多女生一组,因为女生较弱,划起艇来会较吃力。当真?我们可有那样差?好一阵子,车子才姗姗来迟。

保佛火车站
大约两个钟头,我们到达保佛火车站。坐火车还得用上整两个小时才会到上游处激流划艇的起点 班吉(Pangi)。所以,大伙儿上了小号,顺便换上适合的激流服装,最好是深色衣服(因激流的水是黄色的),以免待会儿换个措手不及。火车站那儿,负责人给我们带来消息说另一组男生居多,我们可真好运气,有靓仔看,可以把两元推开一边咯(刚刚在车内说好的,女的全让给他,男的当然是我们的咯:P说笑的啦!)。

十点半,古老陈旧的火车,里面竟还安装有风扇,准时出发。那是当地人唯一的火车,每天就只有两趟,所以时间可真要抓紧。唉呀,火车内可是纳闷,装着的风扇是摆美的,一动都不会动,让我空欢喜一场。坐在我对面,脚仔旁边的两位小弟弟可真好看,真像母亲,眼睛大大的。大弟弟可真是乖巧,小弟弟呢,我可真想要打他屁股,很坏蛋,哥哥什么东西都要得让他,还把他母亲包包里的东西全都翻乱了。

仔的另一边坐了一位卖零食和汽水的婆婆。由于她的东西置放在走廊中间,脚仔不时都忙着帮她拿上拿下,好让其他乘客走过。然后,瞧到婆婆篮子里有一把扇子,我们动了主意,婆婆看懂了我们的眼神,识趣地把扇子借给我们。啊。。。真凉快,羡死旁人!坐着坐着,摇摇晃晃地,我又进入睡眠状态,那头儿可是跟着火车摇左晃右的。一会儿,我醒了,却看到脚仔也在那儿摇左晃右,好好笑哦!

中途在拉约(Rayoh),我们下车放下我们的背包。哈,还得签下一份生死状。人都来了,还有临时退阵这一回事吗?Die die must go, die die must do 咯!而后,我们就续程前往班吉。

抵达班吉,George和其他负责人给我们准备了西瓜和矿泉水。真正与另一组男生碰面,原来对方是一班看似社会的新鲜人,年轻又有活力的可爱男生。哈,我们也感觉年轻了。吃了喝了,我们穿上救生衣,还得带上安全头盔。George帮我们检查了各人的头盔和救生衣是否妥当。看到鸿仔的一身装扮,还真搞笑,头部像极了苍蝇大使。然后,George帮我们分成八人一组。我、萍妹和脚仔,一对洋人夫妇和另外一组的其中三个男生一组;鸿仔,阿慧、妹妹和两元则和另四位男生同组。

George给我们解说安全措施,包括如何握桨柄、如何划艇、橡皮艇翻倒如何自救、掉进河里如何自救、如何将掉进河里的伙伴救上艇等等。要我们不管任何时候都要挂着笑容,即使你人在河里。讲解完毕,激流划艇挑战正式开始。

每艘橡皮艇有两名艇夫(负责照顾和引领全船人),艇的两旁各自有三个人负责划艇,艇中间坐了两位艇客(负责给划艇的人推动力)。我和脚仔是艇客,萍妹则是其中一位划艇Onetwoonetwo。。。我们的橡皮艇勇往直前。

哈哈,原本以为我的任务非常简单又不需费力划桨,其实不然。身为给与推动力的人,必须有宏亮的声音,才能使全船的人划得有力有劲,穿越激流,前往征服每一阶段的激流。

前进一段水路,我们来到属安全地带的激流,George要我们全船人下水试水适应。我、萍妹和脚仔本无意下水,却给洋人女士泼水,势要我们下水。哈哈,拗不过她,我们全都下水咯!

接下来,我们来到第一个漩涡 -- Merry-Go-Round。一个不经心,全船人都掉进河里了,就除了两位艇夫。切记在心,不会游泳的我,只管掉进河里时,双手握紧自己的救生衣,不要惊慌,等待组员来救我。大家都非常有团队精神,很快的,大伙儿都逐一被拉上艇,我们又开始向前划行。

突然觉得自己好像准备掉船似的,其他队员都有地方定位和顶住自己的脚,不被抛下船。我呢?(后来上岸才知道原来我可以捉住两旁划艇员的救生衣,George没有告诉我,真冤枉!)坐在身旁的洋人男士听了我的言语,大笑一顿。

惊险还在后头,我们的艇就快来到Scooby Doo漩涡一个不留意,我又不受控制地被抛下船,还不知被那来的队员身体再度压下水,喝了好大一口的水。然后,艇子离我越来越远,我一度又一度的被漩涡冲离、汹涌的水流掩盖,又不知肚子喝了多少“凉水”。我开始有点慌了,有点感觉不能呼吸,怕了!

正好此时,洋人男士扶着他的桨柄游向我,问我“Are you okay?”,跟着他把桨柄给我,叫我不要慌,然后他再游向艇(会游泳,真好!)。一会儿,我终于被救上船了。有惊无险,在激流漩涡里不免会挣扎惊慌失措,亲自经历你就知道,这一次我真的吓坏了!洋人女士笑洋人男士又被抛下水。哇,肚子感觉凉凉地,滚着太多刚刚喝下的“凉水”,也不觉得饿了。

接着,脚仔和洋人女士换位子;我和萍妹换位子,我也要来个划艇,尽兴一下。萍妹的声音够响亮的,绝对是做艇客的不二人选,再适合不过了。原来,划艇很费力,腰力手力脚力一并配合,靠功夫哦,感觉很不一样!我们穿越CobraLambada激流等,到最后的Washing Machine。哈,这次洋人女士一个人被抛下水了,被拉上艇时,洋人男士取笑回她,两人打平手。看在我眼里呢,我觉得他们俩非常有活力(一点都不输给我们这些年轻的),很懂得一起享受人生,完全不受年龄局限。夫唱妇随,才是令人羡慕。

大约一小时多,我们完成了整个10km的激流挑战,整个行程分刺激的,满足感十分。到回Pangi,我们换上干净的衣服,然后即可享用午餐。看似简单的一餐,可却觉得十分美味可口。

三点多,在火车还没来之前,大伙儿来张大合照留念,笑得真可爱,可能是心上的那一块紧张大石随着激流挑战的结束也放下了。

保佛的车程中,其中两位可爱男生走了过来留了email要我们寄份合照给他们,还和我们闲聊一会,蛮健谈一下。发现原来他们的激流配套比我们便宜了RM30。爬阿庇山的配套也比我们低,那我们岂不是给人斩了很多菜头!四海之内皆兄弟嘛,下一次有什么好康头记得和我们分享啊喂!

不聊还不知道,原来在他们眼里,我们大概是他们年龄的一伙,开心死我们了!很荣幸有这一班可爱的年轻小伙子陪伴,还是我们沾了你们的光吧,心也一起年轻起来!谢了!

到了火车站,我们即启程回阿庇市。途中,下着毛毛雨。奇迹就是跟随着我们,竟然还有美仑美的日落观看,为今日我们的激流划艇,新朋友的结识增添另一份感动。

饱饱乐
回到城里,便是晚餐时间。二话不说,我们决定去吃肉骨茶,还要有油炸条的。还加了福州肉丸,吃得大伙儿津津有味,QQ的,好好吃!

噢呀嗉咪呐噻
明日别时依依,鸿仔,阿慧和两元将乘早机回槟岛,我们则是黄昏班机。整理好行李,大家先来个早告别(吩咐他们无需叫醒我们,自便咯),而后,疲累的我们便入睡了。

学裹粽子咯!

上个星期日正是农历五月初五,也是华人其中一个重要的节日。对,就是端午节(或称为重阳节)。端午节少不了的主角 -- 粽子。现今社会,任何时刻想要吃粽子都可以吃到。可就在这一天,特别来得有意义。

粽子,肯定你会吃吧,那你可懂得如何裹粽子呢?我呢,老实说,就是不懂。所以一大早就起身要和妈妈偷师。哇,妈妈昨晚早已把需要的配料都煮炒好了。


粽子叶,用热水煮软,方便折绑。




糯米,加一些调味,让它香喷喷。


半肥瘦肉,一定要半肥瘦哦。
全是瘦肉的话,吃起来会很硬。
半肥瘦的话,肥肥油油的,
裹出来的粽子才会香香油油。




冬菇、栗子和虾米都有稍微经过煮炒。
喜欢的话,还可以加上其它材料如干蚝等。




鸭蛋黄(一粒RM0.60-0.89,好贵吃哦!)
可有可无,依个人喜好而定,胆固醇高咯!




材料准备好了,裹粽子可又是另一门学问和技巧,很靠功夫哦。



两片粽叶一高一低相叠,再折成漏斗形。
最低层,先放一层糯米。再加入其它材料。
最后,再盖上一层糯米。





然后,将整个粽子裹紧。
上半部剩余的粽叶对下折,
把糯米和材料都成堆了。



再把它用绳子绑紧,四个角的粽子就成形啦。


再来就容易的多了,把所有裹好的粽子都放进大锅,加入一些盐,慢火煮2-3小时便可尝到香喷喷的粽子咯。裹粽子,其实不简单啊,裹不好的话,你就会发现大锅内有粽叶、肉、冬菇等,因为粽子散开了。所以,吃只要几分钟,裹却得用上几小时哦!今天,一粒普通的粽子可以卖上RM4-RM6,你说,学不学裹粽子好?

Good Helper

Ding ding ding, I have found something special from Live it Up, at LG floor One Utama last Tuesday. What's that so special ne? Yeh, a monitor cleaner and keyboard brush (you may see it before, but sorry, this is my first-time discovery :P).







Before that, I always used tissue or cotton to clean my labtop monitor and keyboard and that did not help at all. Now, this unique-designed froggie (there's other animal designs available) monitor cleaner and keyboard brush has been very helpful and easy to use. Try it up, it's only RM8.90. A real good helper to keep my labtop always at clean status. Cheers!!!

How to Survive leh?

Oil price is going to increase from RM1.92 per litre to RM2.70 per litre by tomorrow. An increase of RM0.78, what a NIGHTMARE to many of the motor users when government made such an announcement this evening. Previous experience, I didn’t even bother. But this time is different, I think it really gave me a hit! Gosh, an increase of 40.63%!

Verified the trueness of the news, I was on my way back from Subang to KL. You know how long it took me to reach home? Damn, I was driving from 6.45pm until 9pm. For two hours plus, I was on the road. The roads and the petrol stations were getting congested everywhere. People were crazily lined up to fill the petrol as the price is going to be different by midnight. Some people even kiasu until after filling the car oil-tank, filling their spared plastic tank. The increase drives the whole world crazy!

I didn’t like the idea, but that’s the reality I have to accept. I live in a crazy world. The price increase is just a beginning; there’ll be more increases in many other things which you and I going to face tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow…

Tell me, HOW to survive leh? Money that you earned has such a small buying power today! I think, I gotta be a real rat race starts from this moment on, in order to be affordable and keep surviving in the crazy world like this. Don’t you agree with me?

沙巴亚庇逍遥游(五)

4.30am左右,两元很准时就给咱们敲门,我们几个赖床虫才要懒洋洋地起身。讲真的,昨晚没什么睡到,夜间还有蚊子老大来拜访,偶然间,是乎还有猴老爷捣蛋,就是朦朦胧胧的,太累了太爱睡了,就算是天塌下来还当棉被盖。

约会日出
准备就绪,我们出发赶着去约会日出咯!四周围一片寂静、黑漆漆的,别无他人,就只有我们七人。只靠着妹妹的微微头灯,我们向昨天从沙滩男那儿探到的方向走去。凌晨的美莫过于夜空闪烁的星星,是乎都忙着帮我们照亮,和我们说话,叫我们不要害怕。

走着走着,来到了聚有水的沙滩,不知水的深度,我们考虑是否应该前进。在那儿待了好一阵子,喋了点零食(肚子在吵了),妹妹又试探了水的浅度,后,我们决定继续向前进攻,希望来得及欣赏日出的美。

又再走了好一段路,我们看到的是一望无际的石头。哇,石头路,不好走哦!若继续前进,或许我们可以看到日出,不过担心走回来的时候,或许这些石头将被潮水淹盖,那我们岂不是遇上阻碍,怎么回到住宿处呢?发觉如此的不对劲,我们毅然放弃挑战未知数的前方,往回头路走。所以,日出我们没看到,不过却观赏了刚破晓的天空,一样美丽精彩,还是有所收获,没有失望白费心机。
自由活动
哇,这么早起身,我是人醒胃醒,已经挨了一段时间的饥饿,是时候慰劳它咯!吃饱饱了,我、鸿和慧就走回房间决定再小歇一会儿;妹妹、萍妹和脚仔去snokerling;而两元就独自到处捕景,各自精彩。

哈哈。。。回到房间的我们,小歇一会儿后,洗个澡,闲着没事做,我们来玩打辫子。哈哈,三个人就绑了三个不同款式的辫子,回到童年,好笑又可爱。

差午餐还有一段时间,还有一项使命还未完成,我拿了妹妹的相机去帮她们拍一些snokerling照去。阳光还蛮晒的,佩服妹妹、萍妹和脚仔能够在艳阳的高挂下享受她们的snokerling。咔嚓咔嚓。。。妹妹有很多甫士哦。她们还告诉我才遇到的惊险 – 小水母攻击,真的吓人!而后,她们就要上岸梳洗,准备吃午餐咯。

饱饱乐
等着妹妹她们的当儿,我们几个又跑去充当模特儿,咔嚓个痛快。累了(阳光很猛啊喂),我们便躲进休闲室内观赏节目,等候妹妹们一起用午餐。今天的午餐不错,有闻名的玉粟汤,我终于尝到了,果然是没得顶!

再会咯,阳光沙滩男
时间飞逝,两天一夜的Pulau Tiga休闲团终告一段落,我们是时候乘快艇回阿庇市咯。当然,又有新的旅客观光此景点,沙滩男总是挂着阳光般的笑脸,迎接及欢送旅客。我有一点羡慕他们那种没有都市的繁忙、简单且无拘无束的生活。自问,我可否像他们的洒脱,不受都市的诱惑,就在岛上生活?或许,有一天。。。再会咯,阳光沙滩男!

游走阿庇市
一路上,又是摇摇晃晃的乘车回阿庇市。到达时,已近黄昏时分。做什么呢?接下来是随兴游走,爱走那就走那,爱做什么就做什么。第一件要事,先喂饱肚子。所以呢,就到民宿楼下的咖啡馆喝茶,尝碳烤面包。好好吃!

添饱肚子后,我们便开始漫无目的的游走阿庇市。哈,妹妹还没放弃寻找不知什么牌子的冰淇淋,什么旺吗?我怎么也想不起来了。我们终于在购物中心里找到。真的很够味的呢!若不是肚子饱饱的,吃一只是不够的,因为售卖的口味有太多选择了,左右为难啊!

走着,走着,我们想起刚才在车内看到的手画电影海报,妹妹建议不如咱们去看电影 – 三国:见龙卸甲。我说没带冷衣,怕冷,不去看了。妹妹可就说我们让你取暖。斗不过她,我也只好一起参与了。哇,戏票惊人哪,六元?这个年代去哪儿找啊?买了戏票,距离看戏时间,还有一段时间,干什么呢?哈哈。。。别无其它,我们去饱饱乐—海鲜餐咯!

饱饱乐
我们选了一间由妹妹的老板介绍的 -- 双天海鲜酒楼。我还是第一次自己看水缸问价钱点菜,感觉真棒!哇,好丰富的一餐,有白灼虾,沙巴菜,矮瓜,七星鱼和白蚌。每一样佳肴都很新鲜入味,吃得大家乐开怀。我们七剑客连一条重1kg的七星鱼都啃不下,实在是太差劲了。吃饱后,我们到附近的小超市走走,以免吃太饱,顶着肚子不舒服。












电影乐
三国:见龙卸甲,一部话语剧片,可是却看到很多异族也齐来观赏哦,难得啊!是否是冲着刘德华而来捧场的?这样充满古代历史文艺的戏,两元和鸿仔肯定是行家,我可是被剧里的一些文言文给弄晕了,听得我两只耳朵大。

还好,整体来讲还蛮okey的,还有靓仔看那会闷呢?赵子龙手下四将之一,邓芝(安志杰饰演)可是超有型的!鸿仔有流口水哦,虽然剧情跟她所阅读有所差别,有型仔邓芝的出现,抵回那戏票钱咯!安志杰不就抢完刘德华的锋头?各有千秋啦!














噢呀嗉咪呐噻
十一时多,我们观赏完三国:见龙卸甲。个个都累了,也还没洗澡,拖着疲惫的身体,我们漫步在夜空下,走回民宿。明天,有更刺激的玩意儿等着我们,早点休息,噢呀嗉咪呐噻。。。

苏东大头虾

苏东大头虾?哪里有得吃?好吃吗?哦,no no no。。。我说的不是可以吃的苏东大头虾。我指的是人。谁?不好意思,真是本人。无药可救呢。

今天,靠近中午时分,本人真准备出门。“乓”的一声,我的房门锁了。哈,看看餐桌,这下可好了,我的家钥匙和车钥匙都还置放在房内。这也意味着我自己反锁在自己的家里。进房也不是,出大门也不是,就只有客厅可以待。怎么会有这样笨的人呢?咳,就是有。我啦!

还好有电话在身。打个电话向平嫂求救。储备钥匙有,可却锁在她房内了。想到望凯,他也有我们家的储备钥匙,还有“一线生机”。不久之后,接到平哥打来的电话,说望凯问“又再反锁??” 哎,是我都会摇头。不好意思。我已经很小心了。这一次,他救不了我,因才刚换了工,不在附近。

平哥只好把工作放在一边,驾车回来给我送储备钥匙。大约半个小时,听到平哥开门的声音,后就传来“苏东”两个字咯。哈哈。。。我,是无可奈何,必须给承认了。

哎呀呀。。。一个不小心,给全世界的人添麻烦了。我这个粗心苏东大头虾,我也不懂得如何说话,无言以对呐!平哥和平嫂是我一起居住最久的人,我却是添最多麻烦的一个。我的愚笨,真的很对不起;你们的宽容以待,真的感激不尽。我有福了,你们可是有。。。嘻嘻!

沙巴亚庇逍遥游(四)

6.00am:大伙儿就起床了。旅游比作工还要勤力,决不赖床。不过,今天有点例外,我是肚子在绞痛,要赖一下床也不行。就这样,拉了三次,我今天不用吃东西咯?

昨天上下山时,脚用力过度了,双脚又肿又硬又痛。萍妹的朋友说一进房就觉得这一群人一定是刚爬山回来,因为有着很浓的counter pain味道。哈哈,我们想要的咩,身不由己啊喂!今天还算好很多,就只差上下楼梯依旧像个老太婆,看到阶梯你会怕,怕到你还是得爬。

Philipino Market
今天,将会是很轻松的一天。我们将出海到另一个岛上过夜— Survivor Island of Borneo。在那之前,我们先去逛逛每逢星期日的Sunday Market,也称为Philipino Market。

走在Philipino Market位,各式各样的东西琳琅满目,亏我们只有一小时的时间在那消耗。哇,阿伯卖得粽子看到我流口水,可是我的肚子不舒服,有心无力,真浪费!好多手工艺品、美味可口的食物、装饰品、宠物等等,来不及看也来不及买,我们只有走马看花。匆忙之中,还好赶得及跟老板娘刹个好价,买了件t-shirt,据说glow in the dark,真的吗?(KK gang,你们的衣服穿了有没有在夜间发光?)

车子准时八点来接我们。去jetty的路程还真有一段,一个小时多吧,还可以小歇一会儿。必须去Kuala Penyu先,沿途经过Papar,妹妹问mamar在那里,哈哈!车内,大伙儿闹肚子饿,还好我们爬山的粮食还有剩很多,帮得上忙咯。终于看到了三只大龟,不愧是Kuala Penyu。这儿,我们必须要越过一条大河。等了好一阵子才轮到我们。怎么还是没有动静?回头一看,原来,我们的车早已离开陆地好一段距离咯,真是后知后觉。

Survivor Island of Borneo (Pulau Tiga Resort)
过了河,再走一小段路,我们便到达jetty。乘上快艇,我们出发去我们的目的地 – Pulau Tiga Resort。整二十分钟就到了resort。哇,海水清澈见底,许许多多的大鱼小鱼自由自在的游来游去。还有fit fit的,cool cool的沙滩男迎接我们,爽!

登记了过后,沙滩男给我们简单的解说岛上规矩与活动。过后,我们拿了钥匙便回房放行李。三人一房,浴室的空间真是大。两元今晚可有得好睡一觉了,它独占一间房,滚上滚下,再滚左滚右,都没人会理,哟,你看我们对你几好?

咔嚓乐
由于还不是午餐时间,所以我们就到四处乱逛,大玩摆甫士,什么花招都有,享受摄影乐。模特儿,不好当哦,不过确是过瘾!

饱饱乐
哇,真的是很饿,终于挨到午餐时间,我们可是等不及咯!哇,几天在亚庇,今天终于吃到热腾腾的食物。呵,鸡肉和黄瓜好吃,腐竹皮太硬了,有吃牛肉的也投诉咬不断。哎,也是一餐啦,孤岛上,可以填饱肚子就算了。

美美乐
火山泥,Pulau Tiga 的重要景点。没去,可不算到过Pulau Tiga哦!哇,是活的火山泥吗?还看到它“卜”一下又一下。大伙儿早就准备好,即刻就可以下泥洗美美,天然美容,有钱也买不到。外国人来这儿可是从头到脚都涂满火山泥,极珍贵的哦!
一下泥,那个感觉,要怎样形容呢?嗯,我还是觉得有机会你自己去体会比较好。嘛就是滑溜溜的咯,这样才能滋润皮肤。哎,我怎么整个人怎样撑下去火山泥都还是浮上来?没有平衡点啊喂!累坏我了!最后还得托两元把我从泥里拉上岸,糗死了!

接下来可是精彩,玩洗够了,全身是泥,到那洗澡?呵呵,向导的狡猾,我们全上当了。有水冲洗,就那一点儿的水,洗到几时才会干净?洗到几时才可以轮到下一位?所以呢?就这样怎个人像极了人像(statue),走回刚才整整1km的路回到海边,才大洗特洗,真是开玩笑!讲真,你若到了那儿,没下泥洗美美,就无法体会我们的精彩!一定要下泥哦!

饱饱乐
泡完火山泥,好好儿梳洗一番,肚子又在闹饿咯,真的很快。Resort有提供下午茶,我们当然不会错过。啊,到的时候,时间差不多要过了,沙丁鱼三文治剩下没几片,我们可就好意思,叫厨房的人再为我们多准备一些,还好,他们还很乐意添加。这时候,竟还下起雨,那,离日落的时间也不久,可有奇迹?

夕阳西下
原以为下雨,与夕阳无缘。但是,哈哈,上帝是特别兼顾我们,停得真是时候。一轮蛋黄夕阳呈现在天海之间。







玩玩乐
吃饱饱了,晚上了,有什么好消遣的?不用担心,配套还包括打桌球,卡拉OK。我们当中,就只有阿慧有经验,其他的是打桌!打下打下,打得可是有款的,每一个人都会进球了,还可以要什么颜色就打中什么颜色,厉害咯!

其中,我们还有卡拉OK节目参半。妹妹和萍妹还高歌几曲,让两个与我们同船的老外夫妇都听出耳油,大喊安哥!嘻,还有沙滩帅哥相伴,真是高兴到了极点!

完了两场桌球,歌也唱累了,我们到休闲室看电视。哈哈,全场就只有我们,爱看什么就什么,棒极了!休闲室其实是开到十点,可是外头的沙滩男竟没来赶客,原来他们也在外头有自己的娱乐,所以我们若无其事地待到十二点才散场。

噢呀嗉咪呐噻
劲啦,明早四点多我们要起身看日出,今晚竟然这么迟才休息,可爬得起床?两元,靠你咯,考你的功夫如何把我们六女叫醒咯!噢呀嗉咪呐噻。。。

沙巴亚庇逍遥游(三)

凌晨一点多我们就得起床准备攻顶。短短几个小时的小歇,没人真的入睡吧。房外的走廊已经传来人来人往的声音,大家都在忙着洗刷,准备攻顶挑战。穿着long john还有冷衣,依然觉得很冷。刷牙时,牙齿都会打架,整个人在发抖,所以,都是快收快脚两三下解决。昨夜,是谁告诉我,上厕所时,屁股还感觉像是在吹冷气般。。。哈哈!

挑战巅峰
怕自己的脚痛会阻碍爬山旅途,我服用了脚仔给我的pain killer。彩萍身体不适,所以不参与我们了。一切准备就绪,我们大约凌晨三点出发。外边的空气当然比室内更冷。导游Richard说围巾和冷衣就别穿得这么密实,要透风一点。啊,我带去的headlamp突出状况,它闹别扭了,竟然不能亮。这下可好了,我真的得抹黑上山?只好小心翼翼地跟着别人后面慢慢走了。才走不久,身体就已经觉得开始热了。Richard,姜还是老的辣!一边走,一边松开围巾,手套也脱了。

抬头望上天空,哇,星空一大片!星星点点,闪闪烁烁,密布整个夜空,好美好美。只有身在高山才会观看到此景,太妙了。爬着,爬着,原来鸿仔和两元就在我身后。鸿仔发觉我没有头灯照路,递给我她多出来的手电筒。鸿仔,爱死你了!这样一来,容易许多了,不至于会不小心踩空跌倒扭脚,怕怕!

感觉越冷了,爬到要开始抓绳子了。哇,我的手冰到入骨,拉绳子时磨擦到手,痛死我了。欲把手套穿上,一手又得抓住绳子,深怕手一松就会掉下山崖(黑漆漆一片,什么都看不到,非常没有安全感),一边又冷到穿不进去,后面的人还等着我呢,紧张死我了。越爬越喘,呼吸越觉辛苦,鼻子冷到痹,鼻水流到你都没察觉。“Moi, are you okay?” “yes!” 我几乎走几步,就停下脚步大喘吸气,真的是要了我的命!

爬得真的很辛苦啊喂。。。高巅峰上有一千个客户等着我啊(那是明仔在我来亚庇前鼓励我的话)。。。妹妹在我前方,我一定要到顶和妹妹合照。。。峰顶看似很近,却又那么的遥远。。。天空看似快要破晓,哎呀,我可赶得及在日出之前到顶?。。。风好大啊,鼻水不停地流。。。咦吖,手套、围巾都沾到了。。。我带着的mask都湿了,是空气雾水还是鼻水?。。。怎么怎样爬都还不到?。。。天亮了,我要不要继续攻顶呢?。。。一定要上,那我就可以了了我的心愿。。。3km的路途,千辛万苦,我用了大约三个小时。。。我,终于爬到峰顶了!

巍巍的巅峰上
巅峰上,风好强好大,还好有neyho的体贴窝心wind breaker,阿喋的手套和妈妈为我买的温暖牌long john。“Moi, cari siapa? You punya kawan belum sampai lah.”“Tak mungkin lah, kawan saya sudah sampai.” 东张西望了十分钟,眼睛被风吹得好痛啊,我依然找不到妹妹的踪影。怎么可能?就只有我一个人在这儿?想着想着,突然有一股感触涌上心头,眼泪就快流出来了。爬上巅峰了又怎样?我自个儿没带相机(气温太冷了,电池一直low battery),抵巅峰骄傲的这一刻,我怎样留念?谁与我分享?

不管了,在我身边正好有一群年轻小伙子,我只好硬着头皮请求他们帮我照张相再电邮给我。他们很欣然地就答应了,太感动了,谢谢你们!


照了张相,我有所满足。再欣赏观望峰巅四周的风景,云海一片,如诗如画,真不妄此行。我无法待留巅峰太久,地方小是一回事,风大可是关键,然,我便慢慢地下山。才下一小段,啊,妹妹在爬着上来,我终于可以如愿以偿。拍了照,我俩便一起下山去。哈,鸿仔和两元正也在积极地攻顶。啊咋啊咋啊咋,加油!再下一小段路,我看到Richard在努力地牵着阿慧的手,助她上峰巅。我看到她,真的很为她感到骄傲。阿慧,你是能的!原来,Richard一路上也用心良苦,好像骗小孩子那样,慢慢拉她上山,还一路帮她照相(就知道她喜欢照相),就这样骗上山来的。再发现原来脚仔早在300m的时候,身体不舒服就打道返回resort了。

嗯,下山回resort的时候,还真吃力,手力脚力一起给考验上了。我遇上昨天上山的uncle,他手脚灵活,下山轻松自在,我自称不如。下山比较快,用了仅仅两个小时就到resort。肚子真的是饿坏了,我迫不及待的拿了杯茶,一小碗粥就坐在那好好儿享受。

凯旋下山
大约十一点,我们就准备要下山咯。这一次改用Timpohon路程。脚仔和彩萍养足精神,下山的时候自然简单于我们其余的五人,因为我们五人的膝盖都严重创伤。每下一步都会“哇哇”好几声。在这样下去,下山的速度不仅仅是慢,那疼痛的时间嘛是一样被拉长了,这可就不得了!

呵,我又遇上刚才的uncle了,看着他在教着他儿子如何下山,我也略学一两招 -- 跑下山,不错啊。就这样,我一味的加快脚步跑下山。。。就用了三小时,我就抵达山下了。还真是开玩笑,最后的一段路,尽然还有一大截的阶梯要爬,我的妈呀!勇啊,两点二十分左右,我到了终点,呼咧!

大约半个小时后吧,妹妹、脚仔和彩萍也到了。就不知鸿仔、阿慧和两元会几点到,希望他们三克服万难,安全抵达。那,我们这么厢就先去用午餐等待他们吧 (哈哈,这可是义气?有没有搞错啊?不好意思,肚子又饿了。。。)。

午餐的环境特优,食物看了也比较有胃口。我们可是傻了有整半粒钟多,走了整km的路,从终点那走路要到这个叫XXX的地方为了享用午餐的啊。由于越走越不对劲,转了弯又是路,路弯了又是路,什么建筑物都没看到,真的是累死人。不行,我们就地停了一辆迷你货车,给了十五零吉,载我们还距离大约3km的路程到这间餐馆用餐。鸿仔、阿慧和两元赶不及在这儿用午餐了,我们只好帮他们打便当。

今天跟走路非常有缘,用餐过后,还得走一段路到回KK Park。看到路,怕到你还是得走,走到你还是再怕。我们的司机在那儿等着我们,载我们回KK Town。七点左右,我们启程回KK Town。

车内,大伙儿都累坏了,摇摇晃晃的在那打瞌睡。很快,我们便到达Borneo Backpackers,一半也是托司机的急速驾驶咯,我们没赶时间,他比我们赶时间。嗯,由于大家都没怎么饿,所以我们只到楼下隔壁的咖啡博物馆喝茶。十点左右吧,我们便回房睡觉。

噢呀嗉咪呐噻
今晚的房内多了三位新客,这么巧,就是萍妹的同事。其中一位可真的是大声妹。兴奋地在那一直问爬山问题,我想,再问下去,我们就不用睡了,明早我们还得起早啊。就在那一刻,我大声说“晚安咯!”,大伙儿便熄灯就寝。今晚间,房内也多了一个陌生人的打鼾声,比我们这些上下山的人还要累哦!我们可真有得受(还好我们有萍妹跟他斗过,问你死咩?)!

Saturday, April 19, 2008

沙巴亚庇逍遥游(二)

大早乌龙
6.00am:起床咯!真想赖多一会儿,不过为了神山,无所谓啦!

来到厨房,我问那里的人,早餐要在那里享用?好一个问题,那个人看住我,跟着回答说:“自助!面包、Milo、茶都在那啦。” 嘻嘻,原来那个回答我问题的人也是这里的住客,真是大懵啊我,极不好意思。怪只怪那柜台小姐没告诉我们早餐是self-service咯,好愚哦!

7.00am:我们走向terminal租车去KK Park。不用等你问,已经有人向前探问我们要去哪了。就租了辆Unser,我们七人舒舒服服启程到KK Park去。一路上,我们有如山芭兼三八城市佬,在车内哗然不停,看到什么新鲜事物都“哇哇”声。司机不知会不会感到不耐烦(所以音量越开越大声?)!

失礼了
在车上说了不该说的话,司机看似马来人(因扭开的广播台是马来台),原来他是华人,会讲华语。某人叫我们自己唱歌,我说然到你不怕司机宰了你?他在听广播台呢。听毕,司机马上管掉广播台,全车顿鸦雀无声,好恐怖哦。还好有些欲讲出来的不满没说出声,要不然,真是失礼了喂!

走了好一大半段路,我们终于看到神山的风采。司机很识趣。把车驶到一边,让我们摄影一番英姿翩翩的神山!

9.30am:终于抵达KK Park。好多人群在那准备上山。我们是最后报道的一队。这下可好了,Porter 都给人请完了。我们仅仅剩下的就是导游一位。导游身形瘦小,他告诉说我只好当你们的导游兼porter咯。又是“哗”的一声,“导游,你能吗?”非常质疑的声音。11kg+10kg+7kg=28kg了喂,再加上他自己的7kg呢,整整四个背包,35kg,他可搬得上山?哦唛嗝!

导游问我们选择Mesilau,还是Timpohon上山。我们选择Mesilau,导游再次的确定,我们依然坚持不渝。导游心想吧,这班伙子,真不知好歹,都9.30am了,还选择这样长的路途,我这下可有的受,赚你们的钱,还真不容易啊!哈哈,管不着,我们可是兴致勃勃哦!拿了resort帮我们准备好的午餐(都要1kg哦),我们向神山前进!

由Mesilau开始,必须再乘车半个小时到另一个起点。10.30am,我们正式开始爬山(走山吧?)。导游说你们先走吧,我随后赶上,一定慢过你们。

“跋山涉水”
半个小时后,我们到达第一个0.5km,不错咧。赶紧摆个pose拍下第一个o.5km这一刻。1km咯,还蛮快哦。。。1.5km。。。我看到牌了,前面就是2.0km了,快点。。。来,停,看上来,1,2,3,咔嚓。。。啊,已经很喘了,脚也开始累了。。。喝水补充水份。。。哇,有瀑布,很美哦。。。我们到3km的时候才用午餐。。。吖,3km是几点会到?我已经开始饿了。。。已经越过了2.5km,前面有亭子,我们休息吃午餐吧。。。好,终于可以吃了(那时大约两点左右)!

导游看到我们这一班人,不知心里会不会一直在那摇头,虽然他背着35kg的背包,可他是乎很轻松地就跟上我们后面,真是厉害!






饱饱乐
我们的午餐有火腿和芝士三文治、鸡蛋、炸鸡、薄饼、苹果、矿泉水和雪碧。好丰富哦!在山上岂可找到这么好吃的午餐?是丰富,可是全都冷了。哦,原来冷的炸鸡很好吃(自我安慰),下一次可以买KFC放在冰厨,饿的时候再拿来吃。。。大家一边吃,一边在那大谈大笑。。。








啊咋啊咋啊咋,加油!
Okay,吃饱了,继续上路。。。哇,前面就是3km了,很快呢。。。吃饱了有了能量,当然不一样咯。。。哎呀,是露水还是雨水?快穿上雨衣。。。哇,穿了雨衣真闷热。。。哟,雪碧冰冰的,真的好好喝哦!。。。前面有平路了,快点。。。哇,一直下坡,等一会儿,嘛就是有得你走上坡?。。。啊咋啊咋啊咋,加油!

上坡又下坡,下坡又上坡,是辛苦,蛮吃力的,还好有那沿路仙境相伴,还不至于在那儿大大埋怨叫苦。
我看到前面有人。。哇,终于看到不是我们的人了,我们终于可以赢别人了。。。哈,竟然有人走到那么慢?(竟敢取笑别人?真是五十步笑百步!)。。。万岁,到分叉路了。。。我们一定要赶在天黑之前到resthouse,沙巴的天空比较快暗。。。看我们这幅德样,这样的速度,应该是六点可以到吧?

哎哟,几时到laban rata?。。。哟,风吹过来,真冷。。。我的手快要结冰了。。。七点过后就没有晚餐吃。。。哇,怎么可以那样!。。。我快要不能了。。。好喘啊。。。脚好累啊。。。救命啊。。。uncle说转一个弯就到了。。。嗫,那边有灯的就是了。。。那里哦?我怎么看都没看到,不要骗我哦。。。妈啊!

妹妹和脚仔最棒,领先走在前面,6.30pm到达laban rata。我和鸿仔7pm到,还亏一路上有几个uncles在那儿一直鼓励我们,还帮我们照路。uncle今年来第四次了,每年都来,好厉害啊!我,一次就够了!阿慧、彩萍和两元7.30pm左右到。我们做到了!

饱饱这下可乐了!
坐在Laban Rata Resthouse里,我几乎是在那儿喘了十分钟的气,久久不能平息,胃口也没了。还是得吃,明早更加需要能量。迟了,晚餐真的是剩得没什么。怎么这样残忍。咳,热汤都没有一碗,蘑菇汤还是勉强舀到的半碗。哈,黄瓜好好吃,很脆!原来,迟到的人可以叫厨房特别下厨,怎么我快要饱的时候才知道?哦唛嗝!

噢呀嗉咪呐噻
冲凉有热水吗?妹妹说有,她说向左还是向右转啦?我就是左右不分,怎么调都是冷水啊喂。。。肥皂泡都不知道有没有洗干净,我就是三两下搞定。牙齿在打架了,全身在发抖了,我的唏唏声,不知道有没有吓倒隔壁冲凉的那个。 我带去的只是一块小面巾啊喂(还以为resthouse会提供毛巾)!

到了房间,我们准备就寝,个个的穿着真像已经准备好明早凌晨要攻顶似的。那时已经九点了,凌晨一点多就要起身,只有那区区的几个小时休息小睡,够吗?,房内的heater根本就没有启用啊,冷啊喂!我给的钱就是得到这样的待遇和设施吗?

连环惊心动魄
上床一个小时左右,才要入眠,突发状况,让你惊心一场。鸿仔突然说:“我很辛苦,没有氧气,我不能呼吸!”;紧接着彩萍说:“我要吐了!”;跟着阿慧说:“我的胸口好像很痛!”

啊。。。朦胧中,我从刚要入眠惊醒。我说:“你们到底怎了,我现在就去开灯”,话还没说完,彩萍说:“我已经吐了!” 灯着了,看到鸿仔真的是脸色苍白,接着她便跑去厕所透透风。跑到阿慧那,帮她拍了几下背,揉了一揉(哈,她说我在吃她豆腐:P)。哎,没法子,为了大伙儿和自己的幸福,我跑下楼找人开电和责问heater的事。那负责人说现在正要开,真是的!

三个人吃药的吃药,贴salonpas的贴salonpas,终于我发现原来窗口是可以开的。空气流通了一些,有了heater也暖和了一些(只不过是区区的几分钟就没了),大家回床继续争取时间休息。搽了一整身的counter pain,真的是冷到入骨,咳,heater是在房内摆美的。今夜,三个连环惊心突发状况,怕到你还要再怕!明早,会是怎么样的情形呢?

沙巴亚庇逍遥游(一)

策划与期盼了半年多的旅游假期终于来临。阿佳妹妹一早精心炮制的沙巴亚庇逍遥游,我们一组七人整装待发,就只等那日子一到,即可尽兴地在亚庇次吃喝玩乐逍遥游。

03.04.2008 (星期四)
10.20am:我、妹妹、彩萍和光霞(脚仔)浩浩荡荡地从吉隆坡飞往亚庇。前一个晚上,讲真,我是睡不着的,心情太兴奋了!

12.35pm:抵达亚庇机场。比预料的时间快了十五分钟。

1.05pm :鸿仔、阿慧和两元(RM2)随后即从槟岛到达亚庇机场。

两队人马正式碰面,出发!!!亚庇,我们来也。。。

Welcome to Borneo

真是受宠若惊,来机场迎接我们去Borneo Backpackers民宿竟是一辆大巴士。我们还三番两次地询问接待叔叔,这么一辆大巴,就只载咱们七人吗?嘻嘻。。。确定没错!我们,很有架势哦!






饱饱乐
安顿了行李,我们便迫不及待地去医肚子了。来到一间名为新万泰的,脚仔说多人就代表好吃。点了好几道菜肴,当中,属沙褒豆腐最一极棒,极品啊!还有苦瓜炒虾、咕噜肉和芙蓉蛋,都好好吃de ne。





逍遥四处走走
喂饱肚子后,我们很随兴地游走KK Town。走到那,看到那,好不自在。想起朋友同事们,真不好意思,他们那边厢还在埋头苦干,我们这边厢却走在KK Town,四处乱逛,真过瘾,非常痛快 (不好意思de ne,少少辛灾乐祸)!

Atkinson Clock Tower
就位于民宿的附近。那时候,下着细细毛雨,我们还是照游不误。












DONUT TIME
走着走着,天空在下起雨来了,不是毛毛雨咧。今天的日落恐怕要泡汤了吗?嗯,管的了那么多?走一步,看一步咯。走进百货商店里,一眼就看到各式各样的donut,真叫人垂延三尺。即使肚子不觉得饿,就是因为嘴馋,不吃还真对不起自己咯。来一个spicy flossy,叮叮叮! 鸿仔小吃,没被donut诱惑,劲咯!










夕阳西下
老天爷真的很兼顾我们。雨,就是停得正是时候。我们又可以流浪街头了,幸运的话,可能可以看到日落哦!喝茶的档口老二说今天应该是看不日落。但,若你相信奇迹的出现,就会有奇迹哦!我与老天爷商量了,他大人很慷慨地献一个日落好为我们洗尘。老天爷,您太疼爱我们了!我们在那“哟”的好久,相机搬进搬出,舍不得离开,只因那晚霞真的太美了!







饱饱乐
肚子又再敲锣打鼓咯。这下要找什么吃呢?走了好久,看了很多,最后我们决定吃煮炒。“多人就代表好吃”,又选了一间多人的。而这间店的老板娘好串哦。
“来个豆腐。”
“要日本豆腐,本地豆腐?”
“哪一个比较好吃?”
“都好吃。”
“那,要本地的”
“要煮肉碎,还是。。。”

哇哇哇。。。老板娘是乎给了太多options了吧,不是应该帮我们介绍吗?唉,菜就这样就点了好一阵子,真头痛!还好啦,菜肴都还不错,价钱也公道,比午餐便宜,叮!

吃得太饱,大家慢吞吞地走回民宿。一路上就发现了很多好吃的东西,决定下山后,再来大剁一餐。

噢呀嗉咪呐噻
非常舒服、愉快的第一天,期待我们明早的登山时刻。六点就得起床,大家还是早点休息,为明天的冲刺养精蓄锐。呵呵。。。噢呀嗉咪呐噻。。。
