Just for you~!

Everywhere I am looking now
I am surrounded by your embrace
Baby I can see your Halo
You know you are my saving grace

You are evrything I need and more

It's how we wanted to describe on our hiking trip on the popular Broga Hill earlier this month. The gang (a total 5 of us) started our climb around 5+ in the morning. Didn't achieve our goal though (getting to the hill top and catch the early sunrise) due to the constant drizzling rain thus making our climb slippery while on our way to the top.

Wonder what's Eddy, Valen and Jenny doing back there

Some steep trails faced while on our way up

It was bloody dark if you're planning to climb during the wee hours. So it's best is to bring more LED (super brighter than those usual bulbs) torch light.

Failed scenery shot taken on one of hilltop spot cause I didn't use a tripod. And it was drizzling too, sad. But Val had better shots on his DSLR though.

While on our way down... it was already 7am, and still the sun is not visible.

A group shot of the climbers posing when we finally got down

Darn, we're THIS close to the top and thanks to the rain, we've no choice but to do a U-turn downhill. However, we had quite an adventure climbing up in the dark. Most important thing is to check the weather forecast the night before your climb.

There will be plans for a 2nd round soon though, and next time we'll be at the top catching the sun rise!

Sunny Sunday~

Well... at least today was better than few days back, it was very hazy and you can feel that every single breath you take was very unhealthy and polluted, but what to do?

Nothing much for us to do on this Sunday, do not feel like hanging out in the crowded shopping mall every weekend. However, it's very hot and humid afternoon at home, what to do?

Normally Frag and I will clean our room, as we had too many "rubbish" that we do not bear to throw even though we are not going to use it anymore. Well, we just love to keep them, what to do?

This is why we want to clean and clear almost everytime when we are free or if there's nothing to do. Slowly we tend to throw those "rubbish" bit by bit, and I bet you will have the same experience like us, trying so hard to throw them, anyhow, they are just "rubbish", what to do?

The room is getting cleaner nowadays! Like it so much! Here are some shots of the roomz! Let the picture do the talking, better? What to do?

Welcome to the roomz!

Alright, this is the messiest corner of the room, why? Those are stuff that we need everyday! I know, my stuff are too much there~

Our cupboard~ I need a bigger one I think :P

A movie a day, keep the stress away~

And here's our new bed! Ho Ho!

Last but not least

I'm sitting here and blogging on this entry! Lolz! Just to prove that, it's really a sunny Sundayz!

Here's a couple of good advice (or quotes I'd say) given to us by a friend. And it's good to share it out with everyone...
"It is fate that ties two individuals to become a couple. With this in mind there shall not be many catastrophic problem, however this do not mean that both individuals do not have the responsiblity to put in effort to maintain the relationship - some ups and downs is normal in any relationship and continue to care for and love each other is an on going life long commitment anyway."
Another one to put you readers/couples back on good track if you've some deep thoughts on this. No matter how terrible things (or sucky your day is) are going in your relationship at the moment...
"Appreciate each other well and take good care of each other. Whenever there is challenges ahead, think back on the effort you both put in to this relationship to walk this far. Surely it is not easy to meet among these millions of people in life, let along to be a couple. So appreciate it and do not let those little things affect you all."

Everyday In A Life Of...

a typical worker, and part of my daily tasks...

Observe for interesting or funny signages, for example like this one

Get stuck in a traffic jam

Meet clients or sometimes in this case, drink tea

Get stuck in a traffic jam again

But things aren't easy as it seems.
Anyways, it's our 100th post since we started blogging here together, woohoo!
More to come once we're not so occupied with work.

We're 2!

Gosh, time sure really flies and I'm lacking of it. Trying to get everything done just before the magazine closing deadline end of this month.

Both of us didn't even have the time, actually it was more like too busy, to celebrate our 2nd anniversary (yes, we're two!) properly. But I'm glad at least we managed to have a great time having steamboat dinner in Curve earlier. Let us make it up for Saturday then!

Anyways, I'm taking the opportunity here to say...

Dearest Phoebe, we're officially 2 years together! Thanks for the all the tender, loving, care given to me... and I'll forever cherish all the sweet memories that we've been throughout our 2 years together. There's more for us to journey into down the road but I'm wishing it's be always together with you side by side, no matter what happens or how tough obstacles are ahead. And I love you very much, baby! Hugs and kisses! :)

九份/Jiu Fen, Taiwan

I'm back with another update on my Taiwan business trip earlier this month! I am sure many of you have heard about this popular place in Taiwan, also a must-visit spot for tourists there. Basically we need to take about an hour to reach thare by train from Taipei Main station.

Waiting train from the Taipei Main Station

Jiu Fen is a place which located on the mountain areas. Therefore, if you're to take a train from Taipei itself, then you'll be able to reach "Ruai Fang" only. Next, proceed on to take a bus right outside the train station straight into Jiu Fen, it tooks us around about 10 mins to reach the hill from the train station anyway.

That's the ticket... Taipei ---> Ruai Fang

The weather is cold and the surrounding scenery (mostly green environment) is superb! However, this place is really crowded all thanks to the non-stop tourist visitings. I found that almost all the shops there have Japanese-translated information tagged along. And to my suprise, most locals there speak fluence Japanese. Gosh!

This is the main entrance leading into the famous street of Jiu Fen, and there's the scenery overlooking the mountain area when we got to the top!

This street is the most popular spot in Jiu Fen, that's because inside there, you'll find way to much of interesting local made stuff and most importantly, loads of nice local foooooood! And the street is kinda long, you would need to travel by foot and walk at least 3km, till the end of the street and make a round back to the main entrance.

The shop owner here will teach you how to select a nice writing brush for souviner. They even helped us to carve our names on it.

Here's another nice place selling the tea pots and also place for a cup of hot tea!

I love this shop! Selling hand-made clay instruments - flutes especially. Here's the pretty shop owner doing a live flute performance for us.

Food, food, food... along the way! You may find these type of stalls along the street.

Isn't the house here beautiful plus it's located along the cliff? Makes a nice place to yum cha accompanied by the nice scenery. There are a tons of inns like this around this area.

I really find this place unique~ at least you won't be able to find it in M'sia :P

Left - Right: Japanese and M'sian college. Both enjoying their time here just like I did!

Another group snapshot... before we leave this place back to Taipei city! :)

The Old Jolly Times

On last Sunday, I organized an dim sum breakfast gathering for the OWL & BND thread members in SS2. Well, it's been some time since the entire gang (though some pioneer members couldn't make it) met up.

The place in SS2 was packed by the time we got there. Forgot the name of the shop but it's located on same row with Pelita mamak and next to Sports Toto.

We had a variety of excellent dim sums, and it taste better than most dim sum shop I've been to. Rotten PSP not included

Dim sums accompanied by chinese tea and good chats to kick start the morning

We divided ourselves into 2 tables during the eating session. Here's the Table #1 kakis posing for a line-up

Think about it, it's been almost three years since the gang first met. At that time, we became one of the most widely visited social & networking thread in Lowyat.Net. Heck, we sure had serious fun times along the years, having occasional gatherings like BBQ parties, futsal activities, convoy trips, eating sessions and more.

What a fun morning it was, well you certainly can't beat good friends, good food and good quilting... all together. Next up for the gang - a bak kut teh gathering!

Taipei 101

During my trip to Computex in Taiwan for work, my colleagues and I went to the Taiwan World Trade Centre (TWTC) whereby the show was held. You will find a few famous shopping malls centralized within the trade centre area which are the Taipei 101, New York New York, and Xing Guang 3 Yue.

After completing our round of visit on Computex show, a few of us decided to go up to Taipei 101 (also the world's tallest skyscraper!) in the evening. When we got up there and saw the view, it is one of the most beautiful night scene overlooking the city. Very nice! It cost us about NTD 400 each person to go up.

From Computex TWTC walking to Taipei 101

Lock our stuff in the locker before going up to 90th floor

Here we were at the top!

Welcome to Taipei 101!

The huge yellow ball behind us in the background is actually the wind damper, which supports the entire buiding structure and prevents any shaking.

Was busy here writing on some nice postcards to be sent back to Malaysia. However, till now they have yet to receive the cards. *sweat*

Finally complete and ready to send out from Taipei 101~

That's all for now, will try to update more especially on this Taiwan trip. Till then, tata!

A Mother's Day

Remember 10th May 2009...

Usually, we have family gatherings every Sunday, with our relatives coming over to hangout and chat around. But on this day, it's something different because we threw a simple-yet-suprise Mother's Day celebration for the mums in our family.

A homemade chocolate cake prepared by my sis, one regular way (also a must) on how we celebrate Mother's Day together under one big family. (p/s: My sis does cake orders btw, interested? Do lemme know yeah!)

All hail the iron ladies of the Wong family. Here's mum, aunties and grandma... who are the backbone of the family tree. Big thanks and hugs for making us who we are today. We love you, mummies!

Scorching Hot Day

I couldn't believe it is happening now. The heat's killing me, thanks to the extemely hot weather in recent days. 

Makes me feel like hitting the beach, go for a swim and chill out. Brings back the memories of our Port Dickson Avillion holiday last year. Sigh.

This is madness. Rain, time to get your cloudy ass back here and shower us with heavy 'love', I beg you please!

Half Past Five

Gosh, I'm suprised to find myself still here awake at 5 in the morning. Must be the iced tea drinks I had during yumcha earlier. Thank God it's Sunday today. Had this deep hunger striking my stomach. I have a terrible feeling that I must pay a quick visit in Chow Kit, to satisfy my hunger and crave for a juicy Bak Kut Teh meal now. Must... resist... temptation...

H'mmm... pork. Any friends up for a gathering feast?

Just had a couple of DOTA games with my bro via LAN and I definitely sucked big time, after not playing it for almost a year. Nothing interesting today, as I've been surfing online hanging out in Facebook and tried my Twitter for the first time. It's the next big thing online, however I find it nothing great though. Perharps, I'm missing something I guess. Add me!  

Anyways, we had a quite a dinner earlier at this Bumbu Bali restaurant in Bandar Puteri Puchong, man... they served great authentic Balinese food. If you're reading this Pa, I would like to wish you the awesome-est birthday and thanks for being everything to the family. I love you, man!

More updates on the Bumbu Bali dinner up next. And I can't wait till next Monday when my dear comes home... :)

Gone Fishing

On a wonderful early Sunday morning (I forgot exactly when it was), we went for an interesting activity - fishing - together with my parents. The place that we're about to fish is located somewhere within inner Serdang village, some kilometers away from South City Plaza area.

Back then when I was a young brat, I used to follow my dad and uncle Phil (their favourite pasttime) into alienated places in the woods and swamps looking for wildlife lakes and ponds to do some hardcore angling. Yes, that's right ANGLING, sounds pro right? I know I'm not one anyways. Here's looking at how Wikipedia define it for newbies... 

"Angling is a method of fishing by means of an "angle" (hook). The hook is usually attached by a line to a fishing rod. A bite indicator such as a float is sometimes used. The rod is usually fitted with a fishing reel that functions as a mechanism for storing, retrieving and paying out the line. The hook can be dressed wit lures or baits. Angling is a principal method of sport fishing."

Besides fishing being a rewarding sport... well if you get the fish, it's worth the time it takes to cast a line, relaxing while enjoying the peaceful surrounding. I believe fishing helps to get things out of your head, and keeps you calm. In my countless years of fishing (lol!), I've learned about patience, relaxing, and how to enjoy nature. 

Are we there yet? Are we there yet?

After spending some time looking for the place, we finally found it, which is actually a man-made fishing pond hidden and surrounded by trees

The place's filled with anglers by the time we got there. We immediately start unpacking and begin our angling mission

Mum & Dad - both avid anglers and seriously good at it especially me papa. If I'm not wrong, I think they're challenging each other on catching the most fishes at that time. Talk about serious competition, huh

That's my secondary fishing tool aka "secret" weapon (with the hook and fishing line tied to a big stone). There's also a pebble acting as an indicator that moves should any small fishes bite or pull the bait. Dun play-play, I'm good at this

And here I'm being joined by 2 dragonflies while I'm half asleep focusing on my angling technique and patiently waiting to strike a gigantic fish

Our catch of the day - a total of 9 fishes. The big ones are by caught by my parents. I think Dad almost hit the jackpot, a competition where cash prize is given those who catch the heaviest fish end of the day.

Usually in fishing ponds like this, you'll find breeds like Patin (Silver Catfish), Keli, Tai Dau Pok (Big Head Carp) and 'Fei Jaus' (?). There are different techniques and baits which are used to catch different kind of breeds. It all depends on the area you're fishing in

Here's my catch with my 'secret' weapon. These fishes are 'Fei Jaus' which I named Lampard, Gerrard and Fabregas. Tough looking but easy weaklings, waiting to be fried and eaten!

What's dangerous and hurts most in fishing? When I was young, I was taught to bait my own hook. There was once when I've accidently kicked the fishing rod on it standing position, it felt down causing the freaking hook to be pulled thus it pierced into my finger flesh! All this happened when worms are attached to the hook. The pain's crucifying... and digusting.

Anyways, nowadays it's hard to find for an authentic natural fishing spots, with many disappearing due the uncontrolled pacy land developments and mushrooming of housing areas everywhere for the past decade. Damn those people-in-charge to hell for exploiting forest lands of mother nature! There used to be tons of good fishing lakes in Klang Valley area, but now it's all gone. Instead, you'll find loads of articifial ponds and fish/prawn fishing shops everywhere, especially within Serdang Village area. 

Those were the days of good ol' outdoor natural fishing, but at least the fishing hobby still lives on. Enough of ranting, I'm itching for one soon!
