Doraemon and Asimo

Today, 27/11/2008. I went to QueensBay Mall today. My main motives of going there is to see the Honda's robot, ASIMO. Haha. I went to QB by my cousin brother fetching my there after lunch with him. After meeting with friends, we started to walk around because the show time for ASIMO is 5.30 pm. We need to wait for some time before that. So, we walked around, then i met my friend, my idol of life. Haha.

I meet Doraemon, so i took photo with him. Haha

After that, we chatted and went to Old Town. Then i started to find some games to play. The game is to find a word that ends with "-zing". Haha. We sure wasted alot of time thinking of that. Haha. Then after that we went to see ASIMO. There were so many ppl. Damn.

I took video of it, but i haven't upload it yet. I will upload it as soon as possible.

After watching that, then we went to eat Ikan Bakar. Sorry, Jim (next time go with you). Haha. Then we went home after eating. Nothing much.

Btw, my exam result will be released on 28th November, which is today. Hopefully i pass all of them. Few more hours. Haha

Hatyai, 22/11/2008

After arriving from Australia, this is my first time on trip to some place. And this time, the place is Hatyai, Thailand. I went together with my family and uncle's family with cousin. We start travelling on early morning at Saturday. After that, we rent a van to drive us in to the city, then our car is parked at the duty free car park.

After arriving, we started shopping like mad. Haha. I started by buying shorts. But the most important motives is to eat. Haha. On the afternoon, we bought drumsticks, sticky rice and many "xiao chi" to eat in our room. After that, I went to ancient massage. Haha. It was very nice and relaxing. Before went to massage, i bought a jersey for a friend of mine and then bought 2 t-shirts for myself. Haha. After massaging, we went to eat dinner. Haha. The dinner is super-delicious with thai specials. Haha. Sorry, I was too hungry so i forgot to take the picture bout it. Lol. After dinner, we went to shopping again at few super market. Haha. Most important of all, i manage to eat McDonalds Samurai Pork Burger. Haha. That is a MUST eat in thailand for all.

The next day, we again went to shopping. After shopping, we went to eat famous shark fin in hatyai. Haha.

After eating, then we start to prepare to go back. Haha. After packing, around 2pm, the van driver fetch us to the immigration 1st. After immigration, then we went to our own car to drive myself home. But, before going home, we pay my grandma a visits. That's all for the day. Haha

Life After...

After encountered a very tiring day travelling by plane, i finally arrived in Penang at 2300 13/11/2008. My family and cousin were already waiting for me outside. I was very happy to see them. The feeling is like "finally, i am back home" with all my family and brothers around me and i don't have to afraid anymore. Haha.

My day started on very early morning on 13 november. I didn't sleep much that day as i have already keep most on my pillow and bolster to the storage. So, i just have a bed to sleep on. I had a sleep for about few hours before i begin my journey to home. The airporter pick us up at 8 something. While arrive at the airport, the people told us that our plane have delayed for an hour. After an hour, it delays again till 12 something. So, we need to rush again while we arrive in Melbourne. Haha. Luckily, we manage to do everything in time. But when i was going in to the international departure terminal, one guard wanted me to weigh my hand luggage, laptop bag, and also plastic bag that i took. He was so stupid that he added all up together, as laptop bag is always allowed to go through. Then i tell him that, but still he insist that i cannot go through unless i put something behind (What a stupid fellow). So, i need to run out again to check in my hand luggage, but the counter already closed. By that time, i was already so so panic, cause the time is already 3.15 while my plane board at 3.40. So i call my friend (from Johor) to take the plastic bag that contain chocolate for me. So, the second time, he let me through. Luckily. So, after that i run in immediately and look for the gate. Then, everything goes well after that till i arrive in Penang. Haha. So, that's my story on my journey back home.

After i arrived in Penang, my family immediately bring me to go to Kayu Nasi Kandar. Haha. It was so nice as i haven't eat any nasi kandar for so long. Haha. Then, after that, i went back to my sweet home. Haha. Nothing really changed. After unpacking few stuff, i then slept around 2 something. But, i woke up at 6 something in the next day. It must be because of jet lag and also time differences. Haha.

After that, i have been meeting many friends till now. Lol. I am starting to enjoying my time over here. Just started to hope that my time here wont ends. Haha.

Leaving Tasmania...

I left Hobart, Tasmania on 13th November... But, before that i bought some souvenirs for my family. I bought chocolates and some shirts for some friends... Haha.. At last, i had only $3 AUD in my bank account in Australia. Lol. I took some pictures when we went shopping and also some picture of my long hair before leaving. Haha.

Those are some pictures that i took while walking in the streets of Hobart... Haha...

Other than that, before we all left, my taiwanese good friend, cook for us "Ma Lak Steamboat". Haha. Damn syok. So so so hot... Luckily i manage to eat much too. We managed to throw ourselves a party-like dinner, few days before we all left Hobart. Below's some picture bout it.

Some food cook by us. In the picture is Ping (not LSP), Friend from Beijing, she teached me Mandarin quite much. Haha.

Some food that i learned to cook while i am in Tasmania. Penang Laksa. 80-90% succesful. Haha. 100% my own work. Hehe. (I forgotten to take picture on Hokkien Mee that i cooked)

This is the picture that i took in the morning that i will be leaving. Haha. Still having long hair.

My 21st birthday in Tasmania...

Hello all again, this is my heartiest apologies for all friends who were reading my blogs all along. Very sorry again for being absent from blogging for awhile now. I have finished exam on 7th of November and i am back in Penang on 13th of November. Well, before that there are few things that I want to show pictures about.

Firstly, it is my birthday on 29th October (sorry didn't do this post earlier). But, I was having exam on the 29th of October. The subject for that is called System Development Methodology. That subject allowed us to take notes in, so i reckon it is not so bad. But, still, i did few mistakes while writing the question number... Sigh.. But never mind of that, since its over already. Then later at night, i thought that no one would have known my birthday.. Suddenly, they gave me a surprise party. Haha. It was quite nice... but i have known about the planning, so that's not very surprise for me afterall. Lol. There are few pictures i can show bout it.

One month to go...

Sorry again i have to say... As i was too busy with my current life lately, i have been lack of blogging for quite some time now. There was too many things that i have to worry about now... First thing; the assignments.... The are a workloads of assignments now for me to settle it before my final exams... The second thing; The preparation for final exams.... The last but not least; The need to enjoy life and freedom... Haha..

As i was blogging now, I still have 4 weekly assignments and 1 major projects to finished and the due date is on 24th October. The previous weeks, most of my time were spent on previous majors assignment of other subject, one of them with some help and ideas from lecturers (SMS) and also my father. Thanks. I did pass the assignment. The assignments is on the "Unauthorized Photographing". The topic itself is quite broad, with the help of them, i managed to finished it with time to spare. Haha. The others were some business reports for companies. So, it's kinda straight forward.

The final exam for me starts on the 29th (does anyone remember this date?) of October. Which is a special date for me. Yeah. Some might guess it correctly, it is the day that I am given birth, to be short, it's my birthday. The first subject exam is on my birthday.... Damn it.. I doesn't know whether i should be happy or sad? But, to get credit out of it, i managed to finished one subject on my birthday. The other subjects exam is on 5th November and 7th November. Well, that means i have 6 days to spare before i am going back to Malaysia. Lol. As I should not forgot, today is already the 13th October, which is directly one month before i am going back to Malaysia. Haha. I should be very happy once i will be home, there are many things that I can do, and also many things i would cherish once i am at home.

Well, the last things that i pointed out just now is that "The need to Enjoy life and freedom". Haha. As the point can speak for itself, i am trying to enjoy and have relaxed life over here. Not too stress on study and also not too worried about other stuff other than myself, and my family. Haha. Well, there were many things that I have done together with my friends over here to enjoy, well, the trip to Bruny Island is one of the example. The another one is the dinner in "Little Italy". "Little Italy" is a famous restaurant in our city, Hobart, and also well known in the University for serving, HOT and CHILLI Foods. We have heard that rumours for quite sometimes, so, we are very eager to try it out whether it is really that hot and nice or that is just rumours. Haha. So, we went to eat on friday, we pick friday because, friday has more buses comparing with weekends. The Chilli level contains from level 1-10. I tried level 3. Some of my friend tried level 1(OK) and one friend tried level 6(caution). CheeSen, Sin Hoong and Tze Hau tried level 1 of chilli, while Jay, tried level 6. The level 1 for me is quite suitable as it contains abit of hot only, while only the other hand, level 6 is so so so damn hot. I tried out level 3 and it is also really really hot. So, "hot eater" out there, you might want to come and try out this shop. Haha.

Jay's Level 6.

Level 6 while eating. So damn red.

My level 3 sphagetti. So damn hot.

I was sweating like hell, while Jay is enjoying. Haha.

All of us, eating. Haha.

Well, there were other friends with us together too, but, the shop is so small, so we have to separate the table. Lol. Level 6 was the highest we tried. Haha. Wait for my next blog soon, as i am just one month away from going home. Haha. Till then... Chao..

P.S: Everyone who eat the spaghetti, "lau sai" is the next morning. Beware the effect of chilli. Haha

Mid Sem Break

The famous Bruny Lighthouse. Since 200 years ago.

View from near lighthouse

Last week, 1/9/2008- 7/9/2008 was our University Mid Semester Break. This means that there are no classes this week. Well, it doesn't affect me alot, afterall I don't have quite lot of classes. I still have to complete few assignment during the holiday. But, last week was completely awesome. Our Malaysian friends, 3 of them staying in next few doors, we are becoming quite close to them. Haha. They came over to our house to play games (Uno and "Cheats") oftenly. Haha. Which is nice. Well, we did went out together on Tuesday to hang out and shopping (Eastlands) and they are quite enjoyable. Haha. They also gives us suggestions to go to rent cars and go to other place to explore and play. Which we did.

We did planning on Tuesday and we went to Bruny Island on Friday. There were 8 of us, where our actual planning was to rent a Toyota Estima and all of us in a car. But, due to Australian Law, if you are not over 25 years old, you are not allowed to drive a big or luxury car. So, we have to rent 2 cars. One of them is Toyota Corrolla Seca (known as Toyota Yaris in Malaysia) and another is Nissan Tiida (known as Nissan Latio in Malaysia). Me, Jay, Sh, and TH sit on the Toyota while the others on another car. This is the first time we are going exploring in Australia (by using maps i meant).

The two cars that we rent.

We start our journey early in the morning. And we got to the ferry at 10 something to sit the ferry to the Bruny Island. Each vehicle cost $25. So, we have to share among ourself. $25 is already for two ways (seems familiar with Penang-Butterworth). Haha.

Picture taken near the jetty. Awful lots of yatch.

Picture of me and friends taken in the jetty while waiting for ferry.

Picture taken with Phoebe, girlfriend of my another friend.

Me and Chow on the ferry

We arrive at the Bruny Island around 11 something. After arriving, we tried to follow each others car, as another car is finding the way, we are following. But, we failed to locate them when they stopped at roadside and we didn't see it, as we are block by another car infront. Then we tought that they are infront, so we try chase, but end up finding no one. The worst things is that the telephone line is not working as well. There are no line for Optus. So, we can't contact each other. So, we U-turn after awhile. Then, 15 minutes later, we found them at a scene lookout. Haha. How lucky.

Pictures taken at the scenic lookout.

After stopping at here, then we soon go to another location. By following the map, we went to a museum. The museum is very small(actually smaller than villa now alot). And it cost us $4 per person for entry. So, we decided not to go in. Then we took pictures around there.

The museum that i mentioned just now.

Got too boring again and done something extreme again, Sleeping on the road. I was doing it because there are very very very rare car in this island. HAHA.

After that, we soon left the place and went to a cafe for lunch. Damn the food there is quite expensive, one plate of Wedges is $9. Haha. Damn. So, we share the food with friends together.

The maze games, but unluckily, we didn't play it, not enough time, maybe next time.

The view of our restaurant

Lunch time.


After the lunch, we soon leave to another location to search for another scenic view. But, after here, we soon follow the map, but we haven't found the place where the map is mentioning. So, we have to go to another locations. Following is the pictures of it. All of them quite nice scenery.

I didn't notice I was in this picture, I was very tired after hiking up the hill and there i am in this picture... HAHA... What does this picture trying to mean? The scenery? Jay? me ? or no trepassing symbol there while i am being punished? Haha... You figure it yourself... Below is the compliation of pictures in Bruny Island...
