back from sg

Says the title. 🙂

Had a pretty good time. Arrived on the island late, as we got caught up with Raya-ing in Batu Pahat, then ended up in the rush hour jam along the BP-Ayer Hitam route. Friday saw us visiting relatives and entertaining them at my Mak Tok’s place where we stayed. Went out with cuzzies Hemlocke and ichaya on Saturday, visiting Orchard Rd for the Death Note movie. Crowd in the area has thinned, due to the recent opening of the new shopping mall Vivo City in another area. Had lunch at Sakae Sushi, where the food was nice, but we were surrounded by kids who either tried to climb across or throw empty nut pods at us (thankfully, I think only I noticed). Went to jalan2 at Kino, spying any books that I might want to grab when I return (Artemis Fowl, Lost Colony).

Started driving home at 8pm, arriving 12am. No jams, yay.

stealth driving

Finally, posts from another blogger. Guess I’ll need to reintroduce author pics to avoid any confusion.

Anyway, while entertaining family guests at home during the Raya holidays, I was looking out the balcony when I noticed something peculiar with my Accord parked outside: the front license plate was missing. That gives 2 possibilities: it was stolen, or it dropped off while I was driving. The fact that the plate was only recently replaced would give cause for reason 1 with it being all nice and shiny, and reason 2 perhaps due to sloppy mounting. Oh well, I’ve already decided to stop going to Utama Tayar & Bateri Service, since they lack the courtesy to assign me more experienced workers and have had many occurences of replacing things that don’t fix problems.
Thought I’d be able to just leave the car as-is, and have my dad deal with it, but after the long trip from Singapore, we kinda left the Kelisa keys in the Waja, and with the Waja leaving the house before I wake up, I was left with no choice but to take the Accord instead.

Hopefully I don’t bump into any traffic police. 😛

Photos are up.

Uploaded the wedding photos last nite, sucessfully this time 😛

You can find it in the gallery under Fish album.

It has begun, FF XII….

On another note before I lose another hundred or so hours of my life, I thought to upload some shots I took of Alan & Chui Shia’s wedding that I promised to myuu. 

Instead I managed to delete my entire album when trying to get the photos into the proper sub-album. Yay, Jenius with a J!!

Looks like the photos will have to wait till myuu is back and if I can pull away from FF XII…

death note movie

oops. turns out the death note movie is really a film adaptation of the manga. and it’s japanese too. thought that it’d be an american version, since it was part of a recent promotion recently. and the promotion (guess what the note says, or something like that), didn’t give a true depiction of what the movie is about.

unless there really is an american version. :O

balik kampong!

As with almost every Raya, this one doesn’t fail to exhaust us. But it’s never something we regret, having to get the house cleaned up and inviting family over. A yearly event where everything seems right.

Tomorrow, after a breakfast with my maternal aunts, we’ll be leaving for Batu Pahat and Singapore. I never tire of Singapore, even when there’s nothing much to do ‘cept go visiting and looking at animanga shops. The company makes it all good. 🙂

So, no posts for a while. See you guys again soon.
