I had done some random thinking this lately about the word "Goodbye". A friend told me that he will never said goodbye, because it's a word that you said to someone that you will never meet again. He said, true friends never say goodbye.

Well, I agree with what he said is true. We will never find any "good" in goodbye, unless it's like - Goodbye Class! or Goodbye Boss! then that's something good about Goodbye! A goodbye is not painful unless you're never get to say hello again. There are always some people we'll never get to say hello again.

We will never know what happens next and suddenly "Boom" I disappear.... That's why I insist to say "goodbye" so at least I get to say the last goodbye. But oh well, if that goodbye is forever then prolly it should be a badbye, isn't it?

So, to me... Goodbye is not the end, it simply means that I'll miss you till we meet again :)

Venie xoxoxxx!

Going to West Malaysia - Day 2 (14th Apr 2012) Part2

So, finally we get to meet Wilson. He looks exactly just like in FB. A very shy guy with a very smiley face. Wilson is the one who plan for our going and whereabouts in Penang. Penang is another state in Malaysia and it is also known as the Pearl of Orient.

Then we took the ferry to the Penang island. There we met Jerry from Kedah and Charles from Alor Star too. I always chat with Jerry and we read each others blog sometime for almost one year. And I know Charles from FB group chat too who is a good friend of Jerry. Finally, I met these three person in real. 

Libra Cruise ship. I saw the banner posted that it was only RM60 per night.

Old clock tower in Penang. From the picture u will notice that it is drizzling. 

The guys brought us to tried the most famous Penang Fried Kway Teow. 


Ermmmm... The boss mean business... and in case u wanna know, there is NO wifi. So even if you just want to sit only, you still have to pay :P

Tada~ !!!!
 The Famous Penang fried Kway Teow as recommended by many website. I was very shock with the size of the dish -_-" What a small portion. I think I can wallop it with 4 spoonful.... But then since there were many guys around so I better act lady like =P After that the boss said the total was RM47.50. I almost choke myself. I look at Wilson and ask if the boss is kidding? Wilson say no, it is RM9.50 per plate. I said: " Why SO expensive?" Then Jarrey replied: " Maybe because of the prawn..." -_-" I stil think this is too expensive and not really worth it. But then Wilson treat us the Penang fried Kway Teow. I will always remember this so that when he come to Brunei I will treat him Brunei Fried Mee, fry by me... hie hie hie..

In Penang, there is a lot of houses build on the hills. And I wonder what is the feeling of living up so high. And Jarrey told me that all the houses and apartment are very expensive, mostly are over One Million... tsk tsk tsk.... 

On our way to our hotel we saw a classic wedding car and a newly wed couple.


We stay at the Continental Hotel  as suggested by Wilson. The hotel is very neat and closed to some night market. The room is better than KL's although no window also. But overall I still can accept it. 

Then we went to Penang National Park. 

After that we go to  Hard Rock Hotel in Penang.

I bet everyone know who is this.... Unless you are born in the 20s

From left to right : Jerrey, Wilson, Me and Connie ( Charles is the one that took the photo ) 

RM10 just to sit on the horse...  And the owner of the horse was very not satisfy about it because we did not take it for a ride which cost .... I don't remember already...

Blek!!!! Pix taken by Jarrey...

Inside the Hard Rock Hotel:~

Then we went to Penang Night Market. It was a very clean and friendly night market. Unlike the Petaling street, you will never get scold and white eyes at the Penang night market.

And another thing I like about Penang's night market is that I can find a variety of souvenir very cheaply.

The very cute fridge magnet.

After that since we were still not hungry we went to the famous Straight Quay in Penang.
Straight Quay reminds me a little like Clarke Quay in Singapore 10 years ago. Of course now there is a totally big difference between Straight Quay and Clarke Quay. The thing I like about  Straight Quay is that it is not so crowded and noisy. Maybe that time it was not a peak season.

The Snoopy Cafe.... Did not get a chance to go in. 

Penang's night view.

The houses in Straights Quay. I would love to live places like this one day.

 The Cruise ship.

And all those yachts belong to those rich people.

After that it was kid of late, so we return to our hotel and look for Food!!!! Beside our hotel, there is one Food paradise - Red Garden.

A lot of people eating there. 

And another reason why it is a paradise... Pretty sexy singers and dancers.

A lot of variety food. 

Maybe because I was too tired, I really have no mood to taste anything, The guys and Connie order some food for us to taste too.  I order some "China Satay" made of pork, beef and mutton. Since, I tried this in Shanghai before, so I am not surprise with the taste. Not too good and not too bad. Just ok.

Charles had the belacan fried rice. I like this ^^, Tasted good.

Oyster omelette. Not my kind of dish, although I like oyster but I still prefer it to be salty and spicy.

 I really don't know what is this, some pork skin, I think. But I like the tatse of it ^^,

After a long long day, I still don't want to go to sleep because I believe that the night is still young. How could I miss the opportunity to enjoy the night life of Penang. Just on the other side of  the hotel there is a lot of pubs and clubs. Since some "old people" ( Wilson and Connie )  were tired, Jerrey, Charles and I continue to had some beers. I realize that Penang girls who go to the night club are more pretty than the girls in the night club of KL. Maybe because the way they dress.... ( I hope I did Not offence to KL girls... ) 

After a few drinks, the waitress say we can have free KaraOk -ing inside the pub. Charles was thrilled and hurry in. No wonder the waitress is so kind to let us know that there is free KaraOk -ing... because it was almost empty. Well, at least Charles and I had fun singing and Jerrey had fun listening since he said the only song he knows how to sing is " NEGARAKU" 

There is nothing like a nice refreshing beer, followed by another nice refreshing beer, and 6 more after that.... 
Now I understand why they said : Peaces makes the world go around. Alcohol makes it spin like Fu*k!

Back to hotel at 2am, sleep like a log and with a smile on my face =)

To be continue......

Going to West Malaysia - Day 2 (14th Apr 2012) Part 1

The hotel we stay in Kuala Lumpur was Sg. Wang Hotel. From the look of the picture in the internet it is very nice and cheap which cost us about RM118 nett per night. When I saw the room they gave us, I was so shock : - No Window?! It seems like a cabinet with a bathroom more than like a hotel room -_-" Oh well, what can I expect? It is really cheap.

The 1st day I had so much fun meeting all those net friends around Malaysia, then we had some drinking session and  we went back to the Sg Wang hotel at about 5am. Since it was very late, we let Caith squeeze in the room aka cabinet with us. I can't sleep because I felt like sleeping in the closet and after that I need to wake up at 7am and get ready to Pudu Sentral and take our bus to Penang. So I just let my eyes rest for a while and when I open my eyes again it is about 6am. Time to get ready and about 7am, Andrew gave me a call and he said that he will be ready to pick us up for breakfast and sent us to the Pudu Sentral.

We had book our bus tickets one week before the exact date but our net friend Wilson from Penang keep remind us to go to the bus station to double check and make sure again that our tickets are confirm. -_-" Not only that but before we go to KL, we received a lot of warning from our other Malaysia friends. They will keep nagging:
" Be careful of your bag. Please do not bring those branded and big bags"
" Be careful of the Taxi driver, make sure they use meters. "
" Please do not wear short pants in Penang."
Bla bla bla.... 
Then I reply to them : " You all make me appreciate more of my country - Brunei." 

Since it was still early, after we took our bus tickets, Andrew brought us to had some breakfast. Andrew is a really weird guy. 
He wears a pair of over size crocs.

1/3 of Andrew's car's wind shield are covered with weird stickers. -_-" He even had a McD sticker, I wonder will McD give him special discount for that?

Since Andrew joined our drinking session that night too and he went home the same time like we do, he told me that he did not sleep and apparently he wait for 7am so that he could pick us up.... Oh! What a nice "weird" guy!

After we took our bus tickets at the Pudu Sentral and since it is still early we went for a breakfast. ( Sorry, I am not sure the exact location. ) The best chee cheong feng that I had ever tried.

This one is with some fish balls, fish cakes and dried bean curb skin.

After the breakfast, we wave goodbye to Andrew and Caith followed us to the bus station as she need to take the bus to go back to her home town. Finally when we reach our platform, Caith gave us a big hugs and a kiss on our cheeks. Even thought is was so hard to say the word "goodbye", but we knew that there is something waiting at the other side of Goodbye - the memories of friends like Fenny, Caith, Jelly, Andrew, John and Vijay that will always keep me smiling =)

Then in Penang we will be meeting another four new net friends, Wilson, Jerry, Charles and Thad. Jerry and Thad are readers from my blog while I know Wilson and Charles thru Jerry and Facebook.  

Pudu Sentral is a bus station and I heard that it was newly renovate and very clean. 


So we took a 5hrs trip from KL to Penang using Sri Maju Bus. The seats of the bus is very comfortable and much more better than Air asia's seaters. Best of all there is only 8 passengers. 

Image taken from Connie.

Bus stop for 10 minute at Taiping rest stop. 

When we almost reach Penang, Wilson keep on sms me and estimate the time we arrive Butterworth Bus station. When Connie and I reached there we were so surprise that we were being drop off  by some unknown old street.

Then I ask the bus driver, where is the bus station and he said it's at the back of the shop. When I went there it is just an empty field. -_-". So I called Wilson and I told him that we were " abandoned" some place called Bukit Mentajam  in Penang. While we were waiting for Wilson I saw this mamak stall cooking some very strange dish.

I ask him what is that and he mumble some sweet sugar plus coconut. He make it like a Pau at first then make it flat and fried it like Roti Canai. After about a LONGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG 30 minute, finally, Wilson came.
