Away Away Away

Anyway, making a short trip to Sri Aman for a few days to eat and relax.. :D

Food Fair

Went to a food fair today and, boy, was it crowded. People were being willingly packed like sardines into the small hall where most of the stalls were set up. You get stall operators shouting at you to buy their things.

Things sold at food fairs are always expensive. But because you have already pre-bought vouchers, you have no choice but to join in the crowd in trying to spend the money wisely.

A word of advice when going to a food fair or any other place where there are a lot of people - do not bring along any young children who are scared of loud noises and crowds. You will only end up carry them and walking along the periphery of where all the action is.

Because I know how much all of you like food, here are some of the food I ate over the past few days:

My dad's pork leg.


Prawn in white wine (or drunken prawns)


Homemade Sarawak Laksa

Here's the ratatouille that my dad cooked.


And here's the whole plate of dinner that we had: Roast Chicken a la Jamie Oliver, Roast Lamb Leg, peas, ratatouille, roast potatoes and croutons. hehe.. :D All courtesy of my dad.


Ok, time to go swimming later.

couple of photos

Photos of the sky over Dubai when I flew over. I like the colours.DSC03674 DSC03681

Finally went to check my eyes again and to fix my specs. Guess what, it only costs a fraction of what it would have cost me if I had did my specs in UK.

Went for a choir practice at church yesterday and it was a disaster. I'm supposed to be enjoying myself but I found myself inching to leave. But I did not know how to tell them that we did not want to join them anymore. Never mind. Next week. Another week's trial and we're out.

Since I probably won't be updating tomorrow, Happy Fathers Day to all!

I'm still here

Contrary to popular belief, I am still here....

Ok.. there is no popular belief that I am gone.. It just sounded like a nice way to start.

Anyway, what's everybody doing in their summer holidays? Mine's just lazing around, and playing with the dog, and playing with the sisters, and playing with the brother. Busy life.

The weather is terribly warm here, but not so yesterday and today as it rained heavily. Yes, heavy rain. Not like the rain you get in UK where it DRIZZLES! No, worst than drizzling. It's this constant slight dripping of rain like someone forgot to close the tap tightly and the water is running ever so finely. If it rains heavily in the UK, there won't be constant drizzling will there?

I've been meaning to post up some photos but I have no idea where the cable is. Need to find it before photos can be posted and I shall show you Dubai's twilight skies from the plane.

Update at last

I'm going through an identity crisis.

I cut my hair this morning and now I can't recognise myself anymore.....

It has been a busy few days for me. First, I travelled for 2 days over 4 countries. Then, I got on a plane again to go off to KL. Tiring, tiring... I wonder how people adjust to jetsetting all around the world.

It's very warm back home as compared to UK. I'm just sweating everyday, unless I'm in front of the fan. Everything seems slightly different from before I left nearly 11 months ago. Why does everything go on without me?

I really cannot think of anything to jot down now. Just wondering what I should do for this few months....
