A song that really hits the spot....

As Long As You Love Me... (backstreet boys)

Although loneliness has always been a friend of mine
I'm leavin' my life in your hands
People say I'm crazy and that I am blind
Risking it all in a glance
And how you got me blind is still a mystery
I can't get you out of my head
Don't care what is written in your history
As long as you're here with me

I don't care who you are
Where you're from
What you did
As long as you love me
Who you are
Where you're from
Don't care what you did
As long as you love me

Every little thing that you have said and done
Feels like it's deep within me
Doesn't really matter if you're on the run
It seems like we're meant to be

I don't care who you are (who you are)
Where you're from (where you're from)
What you did
As long as you love me (I don't know)
Who you are (who you are)
Where you're from (where you're from)
Don't care what you did
As long as you love me (yeah)

I've tried to hide it so that no one knows
But I guess it shows
When you look into my eyes
What you did and where you're comin from
I don't care, as long as you love me, baby

I don't care who you are (who you are)
Where you're from (where you're from)
What you did
As long as you love me (as long as you love me)
Who you are (who you are)
Where you're from (where you're from)
Don't care what you did (yeah)
As long as you love me (as long as you love me)
Who you are (who you are)
Where you're from
What you did
As long as you love me
Who you are (who you are)
Where you're from (where you're from)
As long as you love me
Who you are
As long as you love me
What you did (I don't care)
As long as you love me

Thursday '240108

Day 2
Well... woke a little late than usual. Had to sleep on a sofa. Pretty comfi though... Well, we decided to go to Lorong Kulit. Before that, SpongeBob says:
Continuing with my trip, Lorong Kulit really sells loads of things. It's like a night market, except it's in the morning. Unfortunately, I went with an empty stomach, making my trip a quick one. All i wanted to do was walk as quickly as possible and glance through what they sold there. Well, although i just glanced through, i bought a new wallet, managed to bargain it till RM 25, and 2 10 Japanese Banana dollar, which were worthless during my great grand parent's time. I should have bought more. In Singapore, one 10 Japanese dollar note is sold at S$ 10, imagine the profit to be made. haha.

After walking, had lunch with them at a small shop which is said to have one of the better foods. The food is actually quite good! The "popiah" which in direct translation means "thin biscuit" was nice although it was served wet. "Popiah" actually is not a biscuit of any form, its a thin layer of something made of flour and wrapped with mixed veggies (i think). This store also is said to have the BEST durian ice-cream. This ice-cream came out on the newspaper. The ice-cream is okey, although i am not really a fan of durian. Anyway, it's worth trying. The price of all the foods sold here are quite reasonable.

Well, soon afterwards, we headed home... stopping for the best cendol just before we left. (:P)

Next post coming up, pictures of the trip!

Thursday '240108

After a three long weeks of school, my family decided to take a break by going to Penang for a 2 days and a night.

We took off at 10 and reached about an hour later, about 11. By that time, I had a mild headache. After listening to half an hour lecture by my mother about how to study, who wouldn't get stressed up? Come on, it's A BREAK! Not a time where you add stress.

We decided to head down to Gurney Plaza first. Before we did any walking, we decided to have lunch at Seoul Garden. Plenty of food. Seoul Garden was a restaurant serving buffet style. Only thing is, you have to either bbq or boil your food, depending on how you like your food cooked.

Well, this time, I can't say that the food was as good as last time, but it's still okay. Well, frankly speaking, Seoul Garden is something worth trying once, but not taken many many times during a short period of time. But I must say that the chicken marinated in dried chilly sauce is delicious. I'm also surprised that this time, in their dessert section, they served peach and longan. Before you try Seoul Garden, wait till you have a really REALLY empty stomach. Or it'll be wasted. Hrm.... They basically serve western, chicken, beef, squid, prawns, clamps... I'll give Seoul Garden a 7/10. Seoul Garden is worth a try!

Soon after that, I met up with my friend from AS, Loh and his family. They had lunch at Fish & Co, and my mother and I just tumpang along.

After they filled their stomachs, we went to walk around Gurney Plaza to look see look see. Went to ToyCity and Toys R Us. Unfortunately, Toys R Us were doing their paint job and it was smelly. The smell was so strong tat it's a no wonder nobody wanted to step in. The things that were sold were also placed everywhere haphazardly. I had to spend 10 minutes to find the 6-meter chewing gum I liked that was sold there. What a mess!

It's about 5:30 p.m. and we had already walked quite a lot around the supermarket. Heading for a friend's house tonight. Going to stay there for the night. I was so tired that when I sat on the sofa listening to my ipod, I fell asleep.

At 7, my family, Chew's family and Uncle & Auntie Chua went for dinner at Sim Yik Nam café. It's the place where the famous intestine porridge and beef ball soup is sold. There is a variety of food sold here. Mee jawa, curry mee, beijing cutterfush, sushi, kueh etc... An interesting thing happened though when I was picking what I wanted to order. Well, since there was so many food stalls, two young men set up a stall that sold pirated DVD. Then a police kancil car came (i think they were patrolling the area). When they saw the stall, the policeman got down and arrested them. The men tending the stall ran as fast as they could. One got caught unaware, while the other ran, but he did not know there was a police dressed in plain clothes on a bike. He was soon caught and hand cuffed into the police car. Well, this isn't an event I get to see everyday.

At night, I went to an aquarium shop that was 3 stories tall. Wow! There was loads of fish and aqua plants inside. There were lobsters, fish, prawns, etc. They didn't only have that but they had dogs too! The dogs sold there are very CUTE! They had golden retriever, bull dog, etc. This shop even offered dog grooming, trimming and perming services. Other than dogs, they was a tarantula, and a baby albino snake. Haiz... This shop also sold all kinds of ornaments to put in your aquarium. From rocks to decorations to different sizes and shapes of aquariums.

It was soon late, and we headed to my friend's house. We played scrabble & take 2 and chatted to pass the remaining time.

End of Day 1
Shall post the second day later and pictures later.
