Eating Spree~!!

last night, i felt so ke-babi-ness...
in the evening, 2 hours before dinner... i ate 2 mooncakes. It was the "Overseas Brand Mooncake". in the first mooncake, the yolk was so big and the 2nd mooncake, it was the crunchy crust. My mom scolded me for eating so much at one go.

Had my dinner at 7pm, and went out with euwen, sinnyi and ian for yumcha-ing at 930pm.
First session, we went to Brown's Cafe for a nice cup of.. drink. I had vanilla milkshake and a quarter of chocolate mocha cause sinnyi couldn't finish hers.

Then, Ian said he was hungry and wanted a bite.. so, we had our second session.
We went opposite to Fong Seng for fried sotong.
Still feeling hungry after that, we wanted to go eat lou wong nga choi kai, or ngau lam min. But, i guess everyone thought that i was too far away..

Third Session : We went to Ipoh Garden for Ramly Burger so that they can watch me eat! I've no idea why they don't want to eat the delicious burger, but nevertheless, we went there, sat down and I ordered a "daging special"

While we were chit chatting at the ramly burger place, euwen said he didn't mind if we went to lou wong to eat. So, i was still kind of... feel like eating.. and voila!

Fourth Session : Too bad, lou wong was closed at that time. But we went opposite to Ong Kee to eat! hehe.. Only me and euwen ate. and euwen was kind enough to treat me for that meal!!

From 930pm, we ate all the way till 130pm. haha... Was great to be able to eat these kind of things back in ipoh.... Oh, how I missed Ipoh food.... =)

Mid Autumn Festival cum ONE WEEK BREAK!!

woo hoo~! it's the time of the semester again where we'll find every opportunity to go back home and to stay there for as long as possible. In conjunction with our one week semester break, we also have a mid autumn celebration inside that week! NTU's Chinese Society organized a Mid Autumn Festival in Yunnan Garden on the last day of the final week of the first half of the semester!! The Hall 8 Accapella (myself included) performed 3 songs for the event, namely "Feng Yang Ge", "Singapore Medley" and "Ye Lai Xiang".



After the performance, I had to rush back for my hall's night cycling event. We cycled to West Coast Park to celebrate our Hall's Mid Autumn Festival as well! We had all sorts of food there! Ranges from Old Chung Kee's curry puffs, sotong sticks to Mooncakes with chocolate and rum filling! We only returned to our hall at 4am. By the time i took my bath and packed my things, it's already 530am and my bus leaves Singapore at 9am.

I slept throughout the entire bus journey since i only slept for about 1 and a half hours earlier that 'morning'. The moment I reached home... I didn't expect to see so many people there.
EVERYONE was home!! [except for Grace though :( ]. From my eldest sister, Lisa to James and his gf, Jessie, Bryan and Jessie's Mom (Bryan's Nanny)
It was so yit lau at home. Reminds me of the usual festive seasons during Christmas and CNY where everyone would be back home. It was great to see everyone though, and they brought back a lot of moon cakes with them. haha.



The kids played tanglung and candles at night. Similar to what I used to play with my siblings years ago. A few will light up the candles on the floor, while one person will be frantically blowing off candles. The goal was simple, to get at least candle to remain lighted for as long as possible. Of course, it wasn't as fun as how WE used to play it. haha

But now, everyone has gone back to KL and the house was back to it's serene and quiet surrounding. It's fun to be like that in its own kind of way..

Merdeka Night 2007

IMHO, this year's Merdeka Night was a great success. The theme is "Colours of Glory" and the participants are to wear clothes based on 4 primary colours of Malaysia's flag, i.e. red, yellow, blue or white. The emcees were great, the preparation was all very well done. The performances; the Sketch, Jam Band, Cat Walk, Rukkugoh Dance and the MK Dance were all very well done. Sketch this year was done by the year 3s and year 4s. The sketch was called "ninja tortoises" where combined together, they have to defeat the 4Rs. Rompak, Rogol, Rasuah and Rosak! It was funny and quick-witted. Think It's one of the best sketches for Merdeka Night so far.


Me, Yi Wang (event manager), De Zien and Elaine (photographer, supposedly)


Even the games were not bad at all. We played "simon says", pass the bananas. There was an item where the instructions were given out in Malay. Lol. And I can't believe I forgot to mention bout food! Food was catered from Canteen 5. Surprisingly, the food was marvelous. Canteen 5 is a newly opened canteen in NTU under a new management. So, I suppose to build up their reputation, they have to serve good food. Not like last year, where we catered from can 4. The food was just so-so and the service provided by them was lousy. Even during FOC, we catered from Café by the Quad and it was lousy.


Me and Hon Yoong with our dinner



I took part and performed in the Rukkugoh Dance. It's quite funny as we got the songs and dance steps from YouTube, performed by a Japanese group called Super Junior T. The dance moves were silly, funny and stupid. Nevertheless, it's all for the pleasure and entertainment of the audiences. So, we didn't really mind although it doesn't really look that professional.

The Rokkugoh Dance people


And of course, the participants themselves were very 'on'. They can be played, know how to play and well… they're just great! Freshies this year, as I've said before are very enthusiastic. They can take their own initiative to lighten up the atmosphere or at least, some of them would. Anyway, all's well, ends well. I wonder what would be in stored for next year's Merdeka Night. It would be my final one.
