is wat i am drinking now in my favourite hotel room in kk
it’s my pearl milk tea fix
to replace tea box milk tea of myy
cant finish it though
gonna save half of it for bfast tomorrow
and there’s no refridgerator in this hotel room. KNS! T__T

albeit the lack of refridgerator
this is still my favourite hotel whenever i’m in kk though ❤
they have all the basics in such space savvy arrangement
and most of all and most important point of all
it is located exactly above warisan square shopping complex, opposite centre point, 53 seconds walk to seaview / waterfront restaurants / bar / lounge, 5 minutes to the philippines market
in a nutshell it is one affordable hotel at the heart of the city
i love it cos i can just conveniently go downstair for girlie windowshop frenzy

i am suppose to be sleeping by now
gotta wake up as early as 5am tomorrow to the jetty
tsk, i've made a mistake by allowing the reception to make me a wake up call tomorrow. KNS!! T___T
i actually just asked her to get a taxi for me but as a profesional hotel staff with her soft sweet voice she offered a wake up call for me….
she was so polite that for a nanosecond i tak sampai hati to say no
so i just said ok to her offer which now i regretted T__T!!!
tat means i have to get up and pick up the phone!!!! arrrghhhh!!!

i really have to sleep now!! NOW!!
but i die2 wanna post photos… will tahan….
here are some pix of my room…

SMS-ing with my life jacket saviour. i forgot to bring mine. ada ka patut?! but later on i found out i forgot one more important thing. more important thatn the life jacket cos life jacket can be borrowed from the boat but this.... hmmm.... i rather not say in case The Boss read this ^^

#5

my current obssesion (^.^)v dont hate!

i am so sad about all the unnecessary contraversial issue about ‘The Word’ recently
my oh my, i pity the uncle selling pies downstair lor…
cos his pies are not the hottest pies anymore since the issue
and then the arson…. tsk! T___T
i feel as if i am not in my beloved country anymore *cry*

i’ve no more to say….

whatever it is

be blessed, ppl!

i live to learn and i learn to live with it

::EDIT TO ADD::

sorry, i promo2 the hotel but forgot to mention what hotel is it
ok, it is called Imperial Boutec Hotel
go see2 their website la…

What’s In My Samsonite?!

i’m in listing mood. hehe!
just wanna post something while i’m editing photos for my next post (hopefully).
so to keep u entertained here’s something to ease ur curiosity what are the things that i carry whenever i’m outstation/ offshore.
and i am in labuan now.

oh btw, i am on my rest day today that’s why i’m so free to blog.
and tommorow will continue my ‘fight with the raging sea….sick’ to the platform. KNS!

i dont stay on the platform this time but have to daily trip by boat. T___T
the journey is two freaking hours going out and another two freaking hours to return onshore. T__T
and i have to wake up at an ungodly hour 4.30a.m in the morning cos the check in time at the jetty is 5.30a.m.
and when we come back to shore it is already almost 8p.m. EVERYDAY!

but i have three more days to go. so *chant* patience…. patience… patience…. 34521x

ok, listing starts now.

the things i must bring along when i’m going out to the sea.

#1 my back pack

that's my samsonite loh..

aihh… have to use it now. cos my work back pack can’t be used anymore. but it is a free redeemed gift from my credit card last year so no hard core heart ache ^.^

nah… here are the things inside my back pack :p

taken during the 'waiting time' after lunch and got nothing else to do before i proceed showing my public affection with sony :p

#2 Sweater
must bring because the boat can get freaking cold u can go numb and froze. KNS! i curl myself into a ball to fit in the sweater. aihh.. i think next time i might as well bring along a whole blanket.

#3 Snack
must be Twisties with cheese flavour.

#4 Raisins
they said it’s good for the brain so…. well, it’s my fav food so what?

#5 Lemon Peel / anything sour like that eg: plum / somboi
must bring to prevent nausea.

#6 Motion Sickness Pill / Dimenhydrinate 50g
cannot go without this. i will get terrible sea sick and throw up and no energy to work 😦 i take one everytime before the boat move.

#7 Sweets
to refresh ur breath after sleeping the whole journey. KNS!

#8 Tissue Paper
well, ladies so what do u expect? :p

#9 Calculator
to calculate my allowance and OT. KNS!! hehehee….

#10 Pencil Case
pencil case lah….

#11 Lip Balm
to keep the lips moistured.

#12 Previous Report
errr… actually this one was brought by my col. no way i’m gonna bring such a thick report. but if it is thin i’ll bring :p

#13 Sony PSP
to keep me sane during the ‘waiting time’

#14 Spare Clothes & toothbrush
this is from a lesson learned. i used to have bad experience stranded in outstation jacket (small platform) due to bad weather and rough sea that we cannot do boatlanding. so now i bring along some extra clothing and toothbrush just in case. must be prepared all the time!

#15 Small Towel
just in case… just a small hand towel will do. In my case this time it is used to tapo Labo. ehehe… will tell that in another time.

#16 Inflatable Neck Rest
must bring everytime i go travelling. need to feel comfortable when sleeping after taking the sea sick pill which cause drowsiness. my neck rest is ver comfy one 🙂

#17 Ribena
because i am a happy girl!

#18 Water
to keep me hydrated. usually i bring 2 small 600ml bottle but that day the hotel housekeeping thought that i dont need my empty bottles anymore so she threw them away. i had to bring the big one so heavy! T__T

#19(a) Notebook: black
cant miss bringing this small note book. it is so called ‘buku sakti’ (magic book) that all the data and info are being recorded. everything is in there! it serves solely for work purposes. no debt record! :p mine left only few page now so i’ll need a new one next year *proud*

#19(b) Notebook: red
this one is optional. it’s a personal planner too. not that i follow all my plan though. i bring this whenever i travel to jot down anything. who knows i might got inspiration to compose a song. KNS!! i am a forgetful person so sometimes i need to record everything just so i wont forget and might blog about it :p

#20 Camera
how can i show u the photo if without it?! i usually bring just bring my compact digicam but this time round i brought Labo cos my compact lumix is having a good time holiday-ing in china atm with my aunt.

so, have u notice something missing here?! i’ll give a packet of Ligo raisin if u get it right.

haihhh… ya lor…. no book!!!!!!!!! T____T
was so bored this time around cos i’ve no more book in stock to bring along. KNS!!
but who need a book when i got psp, right?! *self console*

and another one is a sun block!!!! T___T
the weather here is so gila hot ok now my skin have two diff tones.
eventhough u only rolled up the sleeves for a while the sun will never miss the advantage to tan u T__T
i am tanned from my neck up now T__T benci!
eeee…. i might as well cover all my face with my towel next time. KNS!!

hmmm…. i really want to read T___T

psp is good but it can dieded on u eventually.
especially if u are playing The Sims Castaway T__T

be blessed, ppl!

i live to learn and learn to live with it

cakerawala 1.0

So cakerawala post is back on popular demand!!! (AS IF!!!) Wait… i go faint 1st… vainity overdosed!!!

Ok where was i?? owh… cakerawala… ok, i usually don’t post too much bout what i do when i am away for a job but i make it exceptional this time cos i realised i didnt write properly in the previous post. I was more concerned about my virtual crops that time. Heeee…. :p

I never heard of cakerawala platform before until i saw it in this blog i regularly stalk :p (sorry Ian, at least i leave a comment already) then the boss told me that i was gonna mob there in few days. ok deal. and the best part was this time i wasn’t assigned to do my normal task. yohooOO!! all i need to do was to talk in training so i gotta save alot alot of saliva for it. it was my 1st time to be assigned to a location other than borneo / brn waters some more i nvr been to the north side of the country. excited la tadii… (bluekk!) so to get there i have to take flights miri-kl-kota bahru stayed a night in kota bahru then off to CK-P the next day by chopper. CK-P is a platform situated in the middle of the borderline between msia-thailand hence many of the personnels are Thai. the OIM and the WS are both Thai. and dunno why the OIM really has that Bruce Lee aura…. haha!!

Commercial break: there was this funny sms i received from a crazy colleague of mine haro upon arrival to kota bahru which went like this…

Col: ‘pls don’t wear ur shorts in kemaman’ (HAHAHA!! He tot i was goin to kemaman cos we usually go that side :p and to think of him sending that kind of msg— memang crazysiaokawkaw!!)
Me: ’haha!! i am not in kemaman, i am goin to kelantan’
Col: ‘kenapa kamu ni? what are u doing there? u are suppose to go to Kuantan. Not Kelantan!’ (HAHAHA!!! This one cracked me upside down. Kuantan not Kelantan!! IT RHYMES!!! IT RHYMES!! LOL!)
Me: ‘how many time must i tell u i am not assign to kemaman! ……. (and some other sentence i don’t wanna publish here sorry)’

I wasnt alone though. i was actually engaged by this generous Hg Solution to present only a tiny part of their manual content regarding to what i basically do to keep the mulah coming in. (but if ppl read this blog and they don’t get anything out of it, how?) Hmmm… ok lah… i was inducing awareness about radiation or more specifically TENORM, to the site ppl esp to the O&G industries. and TENORM = Technologically Enhance Naturally Occurred Radioactive Materials full stop. pls pls don’t ask me to explain further. u have to attend the real training for more info. call me. (yerrr… as if!) meanwhile ‘the big piece of the pie’ was conducted by HgS on mercury related and HAZMAT handling. these ppl are expertises and i feel so small standing next to them in term of experience and…… physical :p actually i don’t even know what HAZMAT stands for (cos i skipped the classes everytime :p) until i returned back to the office. i got to know that HAZMAT = Hazardous Materials. Haihh… why am i so dense?!

Hello!!! *waives* WAKE UP!! sorry to make u sleepy… enough with all the technical now (yerr… like so pro like that) i know most of you are blur and contemplating to click on the ‘X’ at the right corner up there. WAIT!! i will let the photos do the talking already….. and all photos were taken with my digicam. i was so regretted that i didnt bring labo along… huhuhu…. and to make it worst, ppl on the platform do carry big ass camera!! 😥
