蔡依林 - 一个人

今天阴天 今天又是星期天
唯一的打算是醒得晚一些
反正我不知道怎样打发时间
出门或不出门 没差别

一个人 到底应该睡右边或左边
两个人 每一次争吵都值得纪念
一个人 偶尔感到寂寞在所难免
你的气味 还留在枕头边

一个人 我重新适应一切不方便
两个人 不一定就成全一个世界
一个人 关灯看见记忆的横切面
没有光线 过去那些情节 更明显

Third Penang Hill Cimb

Today marks my third time hiking up Penang Hill, also known as Bukit Bendera. We took the Youth Park trail up. Started hiking around 8.10a.m. and reached back down around 12.30p.m. It was kind of a personal achievement for me as I managed to do it without Leonard's help and constant encouragement (not to mention half-dragging me up all the way). I always thought I could make it only by holding on to him, but today I proved myself wrong. Well, at some point I realised that I have to face life stronger than ever, alone, when the person I miss is not by my side. Also, seems that I'm not that weak after all, my regular runs on the gym treadmill paid off by improving my stamina and willpower. I remember my first hike up, it felt worse than hell. This time around I had to stop once whilst climbing up the stairs to catch my breath and try not to faint.

Thanks to WM for inviting me for the hike, WH for the chocolate milk, LS for the yummy sandwiches, and Jules for hiking together with me at the last part. Now for that lactic acid to wear off... :-)

PDC Ladies Day

这是一个很女人的一天。为了让我们这些女性工程师能够更容易地融入男性占大多数的工作环境,我们的部门的 gender diversity taskforce 在八月十一日,在 B-suite 酒店办了一个 PDC Ladies Day,邀请全部门的女性出席,真让我们感到受宠若惊... ^_^ (男士们有没有很羡慕?)

当天包午餐,节目有:

Makeover
Photo shoot
Origami (这个我没有玩)
Fortune-telling based on face (竟然还有看面相的! =_=''' )
Fortune-telling based on signature (竟然说我的签名不应该用 ‘X’ 开始...)
Nail painting, manicure
Clay art (我做了一个熊娃娃)
Cupcake decoration (这个我也没有玩... 但是小蛋糕好漂亮哦!)
Beading (我做了一条链)
Head and neck massage (人工按摩... 好舒服哇~)

我做的链

我做的陶瓷冰箱磁铁 - 本人手工粗糙,陶瓷有裂痕... 哇

过后还让化妆师化妆,然后还好象业余模特儿那样被安排拍造型照呢!

有没有很青春的感觉?哈哈...

Dungeon Food

最近两三个礼拜的 lunch hour 都在公司里头吃外卖。
工程计划即将接近尾声,差不多整半队人都被关进密室里埋首工作。
密室叫着 “dungeon”; 老板就是我们的 “dragon”。

为了要让我们集中思绪,老板都会替我们叫外卖。我们是不必给钱的呢!
卖相还不错吧?
但是连续两三个礼拜都是吃同一家餐馆的食物,实在有点厌。
唉,最重要的,至少让我省下不少午饭的钱!

没想到我最厌的那天,捎来了有点不一样的餐点。
不是平常的炒饭,而是炒面,还有寿司和炸鸡呢!
算是有点小惊喜吧... 在这繁忙的工作日子...

White Water Rafting at Sungai Kampar, Gopeng

Haha... I'm feeling very adventurous lately. The outdoor activities have been getting a little frequent in the past couple of weeks.

On midnight Friday, I was suddenly jolted awake by the sound of my SMS ringtone. The text from Wei Xuan read, "Wanna go white water rafting with me and my friends tmr evening?" After a couple more text exchanges later, I was hopping on the Riverbug van together with his friends, heading for the Kampar River for my first attempt at White Water Rafting!

Boom-boom rapids

The rapids of Sg. Kampar are classified as Grades I-III. After my experience, I deem it extremely mild and not scary at all, even for a first-timer like me. I'd imagined it to be something more thrilling, like rafting off waterfalls in Indiana Jones. Seeing that I was the only girl on board, I added some screams and shrieks for effect lah...

At some parts of the river, we tried out some body-rafting techniques. We also climbed up a tree branch dangling horizontally across the river and mimicked the Olympic divers -- double somersault down! It felt like being a kid again, bathing in Sg. Bil. At that point I had the feeling that I had paid a little too much on the high side -- RM145 for the rafting. Darn. I didn't even capsize, nor get flung out of the raft! :-( But I did get a glimpse of some lovely Raja Brooke butterflies fluttering their pretty wings on the bank though. :-)

Us in the boat - Anybody interested in these 4 fit bachelors, feel free to drop me a comment.

Conquered Sg. Kampar!

Last but not least, dinner at Kampar's famous claypot chicken rice... YUMMYLICIOUS!!!

缺德


最近空气污染指数已经很严重了,今天在我家楼下还有人竟敢公开焚烧垃圾!真是太缺德了!

印尼森林大火虽然是烟霾出现的问题,但在自己国家制造烟霾,真是令人发指!

真希望他被自己烧的烟薰死!!!

笨人!还害到我生病了!!*气*!!!

远远

最近追看 Ntv7 播出的本地戏《有你终身美丽》,爱上这首片尾曲。 离我远远的是你; 突然间,好想你。

歌名:远远 歌手:林宇中

或许我不再出现
爱才值得你怀念
你也不想见
见了也不变
你痛苦转身的局面

或许我放的警觉
你才允许让泪浮现
是苦还是甜
想起我的脸
希望不是眼泪掉线

我只好离你远远
却已伤害你偏偏
我不配你的美
竟把你爱的狼狈
可是我离你远远
你越境靠在我眼前
已不见

你幸福爱我的脸
还欠你太多誓言
我也没资格实现
挥霍轻轻跳着你的从前
而现在的我只好

离你远远
却已伤害你偏偏
我不配你的美
竟把你爱的狼狈
可是我离你远远
你越境靠在我眼前
已不见
你幸福爱我的脸

再远远 你幸福 我会搁浅

High Ropes Adventure at Skytrex, Taman Pertanian Bukit Cahaya, Shah Alam

At the moment I'm typing this on my laptop, I'm also sipping wild berry juice in The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, One Utama. Shifting uncomfortably in my extremely low-cut empire waist top (it's the norm in KL these days), I'm feeling a bit lonely because Berry couldn't make it to meet me, and the boys have left. :-(

But it's still ok, I have Sia Ling's Skytrex photos to view and blog about now!! :-)

During the weekend I travelled down to KL again -- this time for an adventure amongst the treetops at Skytrex, Taman Pertanian Bukit Cahaya Shah Alam! Thanks to Chen Jie the organizer, a total of 19 people showed up that sunny morning. I say, daredevils we are not, just a bunch of working adults trying to recapture our youth!

Me and pretty Jace on the open-air bus

The last time I'd been to Taman Pertanian Bukit Cahaya, I was still a kid. It was a gruesome experience -- the memory of the open-air bus I was on running over that girl on a bicycle will be forever etched in my mind.

But nevermind, I was in a good mood that day and was determined to chase the devils of my childhood out of Taman Pertanian!


Gearing up - I love Chen Waan's waist! It's so tiny!! *envy*

Renting the climbing equipment is compulsory (no Spiderman here). Rental of the harness costs RM31.50 and you can either choose to rent the gloves for RM1 or buy disposable ones for RM2. The RM1 gloves stink.

No worries here, there are people to help you with the harness. The harness goes around your waist and pelvis, so it's kinda like a seat while you're suspended from mid-air. 3 things are hooked on your waist: 1 carabiner with short rope, 1 carabiner with long rope, and a pulley.

When you see horizontal ropes, unhook the pulley from your waist and hook it onto the safety rope. Hook the short carabiner on the pulley. Then hook the long carabiner onto the rope behind the pulley. When you see vertical ropes, hook both carabiners on the loop on the rope. The pulley is not needed.

Due to my well-known history of calamity incidents, I had to constantly remind myself each time to hook everything and double check, before leaping off the platform. Else, that's it. End of story.

All geared up!

Nicholas is getting more and more 'hiau' by the day. He won't take off his shades.

First Contender - the Brave Hau

California Fitness must hire this guy as its spokesperson!! He's morphed from a fat little boy into a fit young man now! When asked to go first, he practically RAN to accept the challenge. See how he eases himself up, effortlessly! That's what persistence long workouts at the gym can give you. :-) Still, at one point, he opted for the chicken-out path. "BWAK BWAK BWAK! CHICKEN!" (To Hau and Xuan).

Walking in mid-air
You think you can easily bounce across like Mario, but no. Each step is taken with a trembling foot. No, don't look down...!

Flying fox!

Just hook all the carabiners properly, take a deep breath, close your eyes and take the leap! But sometimes, it's easier said than done.

This is the ladder each one of us had to climb. Imagine Jack climbing the beanstalk.



I counted 45 rungs on the rope ladder. By the time I'd got to Rung No. 30, both my legs were shaking with fear and my arm muscles were breaking apart. I stopped a while to catch my breath, and made a stupid choice of looking down, back at my friends on the ground. It was so scary!!! After that I faster heaved myself up the ladder as fast as I could go.


Lesson learnt from Skytrex


1. Actually everything is just a fragment of your imagination. Once you know the logic behind it, and you have made all the necessary safety precautions, Flying Fox is actually safe. You won't fall crashing to the ground even if you let go both your hands!

2. Life is like Flying Fox. Friends can only cheer you on and give you advice. But you are the one to summon your own courage and take the leap of faith.

Memoribilia - At least each of us got an S&M glove for keeping

Us

All 19 of us!

After that, Bak Kut Teh at Klang~ Yum!! ^_^
