Johor Trip (26 May 07)

While staying on in school during the intersem period, most of the people still staying In school really wanted to have a break, to get out for a holiday. If it's not because of the compulsory Design and Innovation Project (DIP), most of us will be back home, watching tv and day-dreaming the entire day. However, with people like eng sue around, someone who is not able to sit down and sit put quietly, he/she will bound to organize trips to satisfy his/her boredom.

And voila~! We ended up in Johor for a day trip. The group of "Johor Day Trippers" was being separated into 2 groups. A group of 10 who wants to sing karaoke and left NTU at 830am and another group of 10 who only wants to watch Pirates of the Caribbean 3 and left at 12noon. I was in the former group. We went to Tebrau City and the journey there was 2 hours plus. We bought the tickets for the 530pm show and went to Red Box for a Karaoke cum Lunch session. The session is from 11am to 2pm and all in all, it totaled up to RM15 per person. It was rather a short session since it's only 3 hours and we normally sing from 2pm – 7pm in Jurong East, K-Box.

After singing, we were left with three and a half hours of nothing to do. We loitered around, eating Baskin Robins, going to some bookstore and make a havoc inside there, and at finally, settled down at Starbucks. That was where we met up with the 2nd group. It became our rendezvous point. Had a couple of cakes and some frappucino while watching a few people play some lawak game of chess..

The movie was great. It was almost 3 hours long and Pirates of the Caribbean 3 sure did a great job. Movies these days are getting longer and longer. Think it all started from LOTR (or was it Titanic?). Then, Harry Potter followed them. And now, spiderman and pirates became 'players' of the Positional Arms Race (some economics term, I think) We met up with Zhifa after the movie where he agreed to bring us around for dinner since he lives in the vicinity. Went to some hawker centre place called "Hong Kong Boy" and had a good variety of 'lap lap chap chap' food. Ate ikan bakar, popiah, satay, a few plates of noodles, a plate of sotong, vege, etc. The quality of the food is just so-so but I guess eating with a bunch of friends would be the fun part.

Only reached NTU past midnight. Worst thing is, it's not the end of the night. Andy and Kah Weng they all wanted to drink liquor. And well, I kind of tagged along since it's so near my hall anyways. But it wasn't as bad as how I had my days with gary and Kelvin though. As in, wasn't as drunk as I could be. LOL But it's a good thing since I had to attend a DIP Meeting tomorrow afternoon. They bought 3 bottles of liquor; 2 bottles of whisky and a bottle of tequila. The girls were horrible, they couldn't control themselves from drinking. Surprisingly, it's the guys that managed to control themselves and had to take care of the ladies; not letting them drink more. Even had to bluff them that the cup contains whisky and sprite when it's just lukewarm water. I left relatively early at 5am whereas the rest left at 7 plus. Surprisingly, soo fan managed to wake up and came for the DIP meeting an hour late while eng sue only woke up at 5pm…
