我总是希望你没这么大意

--可爱的小兔、他摄于美国大峡谷


我总是希望你没这么大意。

或许我应该把你比喻成一只善忘的小松鼠一样,常常在找到松果后得意忘形起来,一转眼把松果藏到哪里就不记得了。慌慌张张地往这里钻往那里找,急起来就抓抓头、喘喘气地对我说,那 XXX 又不见了。

我怜悯地看着你,我以为我这一世都找不到比我更失忆的人了。

当我心情好时,我就会没好气地一面笑骂你一面替你找;当我心情不好时,我就会一声不响脸黑起来残忍地抛下一句:“你不见了什么不关我的事,也不要对我说”。你失落无助的眼神在我拧过身的背后停留着。

“我以为你会体谅我的。”

是的,既然两个这么相像的人都无法互相体谅,那还能啬求谁人明白?人的脾性就是这样;免得更深地伤害你,我选择逃避,把自己与你的事远远隔离;事不关己,谁也伤害不了谁。

请原谅我的自私;我不想一世人都在担心你。(但是我忘了,在同时,我也希望被人担心。)我希望你像小兔一样机警。

直到我冰冻的心因为纯真的爱把它融化了;我转过身准备用双手递送我的温暖。却看见你像阳光般的笑容,你高兴的呐喊:“我找到了,我找到了!”

我心生安慰,因为我知道失去的东西若真正属于你,它是会回来的。

Tiramisu for you


“Because I'll miss you.” 他说。

机场是离离合合的地方。哭得像泪人一般的情侣,机场的职员们都见惯不怪。

哭得小孩般害羞的是我; 但无法抑制,面对着即将的分离,胸中的感觉无法释怀。

给我一杯 tiramisu,把这份爱注入心里,甜腻一整年。

好羡慕那些在美国的人。那是我的梦想之都。

什么时候才能轮到我起飞, 飞到那宣扬民主自由的国度呢?


-The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf,星期四,他起飞前

P/S:可能有些朋友觉得腻了,想在这里对我说:“男朋友不在,那就找别的事情干啊。” 但我还有许多感觉想记载下来。最近太忙了,工作压力让我透不过气。我想把心底的话全都发泄出来。这是我发泄的唯一管道。就让我发泄吧。

你们都是我的好朋友 @ Jung Won Korean Restaurant

星期日,我下了一趟吉隆坡。好久没到这地方了,连朋友的妈妈都会说我有异性没人性。趁这一次正好有事情办,顺便到首都透透气,同时约了三两个好友出来聚一聚。

没想到朋友们都很爽快,在短短一天内一次过见了四位好友,还认识了一位新朋友。

中午,和思敏、秋韵逛 Midvalley/ The Gardens。以前 Midvalley 是我们假日常逛的地方,没想到在短短两三年内,变了这么多。旁边扩展出了一个 The Gardens,虽说高档货占多,但若仔细看看,也可能会挑到便宜货的,因为当时有很多折扣!可惜没时间。:-(

特别喜欢 Robinsons,里面有很多品牌款式,都是 Jusco,Parkson,Metrojaya 没有的。

午餐到金加利吃,思敏作主。呵呵!后来,伟轩和秋韵来了,我们再到 The Gardens 内的快餐寿司店 Oh Sushi! 看他们吃。里面的寿司好贵啊~~

晚餐国鑫请吃韩国菜,我们到 Jalan Ampang 的 Victoria Station 附近一家叫 Jung Won 的韩国餐馆用餐。好久没碰过韩国菜了,最后一次吃,应该是 '03 年在首尔吧!餐馆有 indoor dining 和 outdoor dining... 我们选择在外边吃,一边吃一边欣赏周围的美景,好不痛快!


照片拍得有点 blur。里面的韩国字,谁会念?


里面外面,好有情调... 但若下雨则更棒!因为有靓仔(韩国仔)撑伞!


很多盘 kimchi...

怎样想也想不起来 kimchi 华语叫什么,因为我平时都不看韩剧的。在韩国,只要在餐馆叫一碗白饭,kimchi 就会随盘奉上,因为 kimchi 的价钱已经被算在那一碗饭里面了。国鑫说以前他在韩国作穷书生时也是那么吃的。Kimchi 都不是很正宗韩国味,融入了马来西亚风味。但这对我来说比较好,因为我不太喜欢吃正宗韩菜!

韩国卧饼。很好吃呢!

食物很好吃,倒是忘了拍重点 - BBQ 猪肉、鸡肉和羊肉!还有专人替我们烤呢!都不用自己动手。而且在户外用餐,头发也不会染上烟熏味!

我也竟然忘了和重点人物(请我吃的人)合照!真善忘!:-S

我的好姐妹! 这里看,我有瘦了吗?


这是把思敏弄得醉醺醺的东西~


在吉隆坡生活真的很贵,我带了五张 RM50 下去,回来的时候钱包里只剩下三张红色的,一张青色的,还有四蓝色的。而且,中晚餐还不用我自掏腰包付钱呢!~ :-O

巧克力

如果吃巧克力可以使人快乐,
那为什么我吃了一整块,

还是感到不快乐呢?

Weekend Retreat at Danai Spa, Penang

Last weekend, my sweetie treated me to a luxuriously decadent spa experience at Danai Spa, Penang! (I shall deem this experience as decadent ok, because never in my right mind would I spend that kind of money indulging in a spa for myself... sounds so... only for the datin-datins... gosh!)

Anyway, after getting a bit lost on the road, we finally reached Danai Spa at 4 o'clock. Enclaved in a hilly residential area just opposite the Tanjung Bungah hotel, it at first sight seemed modest - a bit too modest to me compared to its professional-looking branch at g-hotel!

We took the couple-spa package, consisting of a 90-minute Danai Signature Massage, 30-minute full body scrub and Destress Therapy Soak bath. In addition to the package, we could also use the outdoor facilities for 20 minutes. The whole experience would last for 2-3 hours.

Follow me as I embark on my first spa adventure!


He does looks like he really needs a spa, doesn't he? Poor thing!

Through this door... down the steps to the mythical garden of Balinese architecture...

I'm a Princess! Princess goes in to change in the dressing room...

Ohh... si puteraku datang menunggang kuda... kemudian dicuci kakinya...

Lovely rainfall pool!

After bathing our tired/smelly feet at the pipe, we were led to this lovely pool, with little rainlets of water sprinkling from the top and all... so pretty. We were supposed to get ourselves a little wet by walking through the pool to the jacuzzi at the other end. Aahh... the clean and clear water... how nice if it were a swimming pool!

The garden decor was refreshingly sweet and simple with lots of greenery, pottery, Balinese statues and water features. I could almost imagine sweet Balinese music playing in the background and me, being chased by my dayang-dayang around a waterfall in a quiet forest setting!

Pathway...

Jacuzzi... Looked like something out of a magazine

Sipping ginger tea in the jacuzzi...

During my trip to Korea, our tourguide mentioned that no one in their right mind would go for a spa in Malaysia, unlike four season country citizens like Koreans, Japanese and Taiwanese, because the weather is too hot here! It did make a lot of sense as I almost had a dizzy spell from the warm jacuzzi in the hot afternoon sun. (Furthermore that day was EXTREMELY hot and dry...)

After the jacuzzi we changed into bathrobes in a small hut and went indoors for the massage. There are 4 themed rooms to choose from - Balinese, Moroccan, Oriental and English. I chose Balinese, but the Moroccan and English themed rooms are the best! The Danai Signature massage combines Thai and Swedish massage techniques - which I felt was still ok, since I don't like my massages hard (in fact, I don't really like to be massaged at all), but was definately not hard enough for Leo. He said he can get a better massage from Queensbay Mall at RM30. You know me, I fell asleep and snored pleasantly all the way through. ^@^~ One tip: the famous massage here is actually the Hawaiian Kahuna Massage, I heard it's very special, but of course, a bit on the pricey side...

Next up was the full body scrub - I had Ginger Salt Glow scrub while Leo had the Apple and Oats scrub for sensitive skin. For first-timers who haven't had a long scrub in ages, it's good to choose Ginger Salt to thoroughly burn and grind those stubborn dead cells off you! I love my scrubs hard, but I'll laugh when the girl scrubs the soles of my feet! I wanna try Milk and Honey next time for skin whitening. We felt and smelled so good after that... like a pair of marinated chicken wings.

Last but not least, we were ushered off into a bathroom with a nice big bathtub for our Destress Therapy Soak. We figured we needed the Destress theme after our heavy workload recently. On the contrary, the bath was so hot that it felt stressful... we kept leaping up every few minutes into the cold shower. Cold, warm, cold, warm... hmm... can be good for taut skin too.

We finished our entire spa experience by 7.30pm, feeling extremely pampered, a bit guilty for the decadence, and a bit sweaty cos of the heat. Our verdict: for the kind of service given, Danai Spa is a bit overpriced. But ambience and facilities were not bad... just felt a bit rushed at the first 20 minutes.

But if you ask me, I wouldn't mind doing it another time...! Anybody knows anymore good spas in Penang? ^_^
