My Soon-To-Be Torture In Gua Gendang

Gua Gendang, this name sends "shivers down my spine" these days...

Call me spoilsport or in cantonese "siyeh"... yes, I am one... I never like adventures and to travel in discomfort and in another few days, I will be experiencing just that... sobbb....

Call it "teambuilding course" and those words make me sigh... but then, it is all part of work, somehow after some "pushing and shoving," I still have to go regardless.... sobbb...

Today I did some research on this place called Kolam Panas Chalet, Pengkalan Hulu (Hot Spring Chalets)... I want to prepare myself the "scenerio" , what and where and how this place is like... (see, i m siyeh one!)

picture from google search

Going to the Gendang Cave too, anyone here been there yet?
Any climbing need to be done?
Any danger going in? Leeches? Bats? Cockroaches?
I have height and water phobia...
A real torturing trip..
I sigh and sigh again..
but no choice.... A MUST trip!
If you can't beat them, you got to join them.....


  1. Don't look at the negative side of never know, you may enjoy urself :p haha think of me, then u won't be sien lo :))) If you siyeh , what about Kong our dear friend LOL!

  2. Yeah.. don't look at the negative side.. look at the bright side.. the fresh air in the cave that smells like bat's poo.. the crocodiles in da river... muahahahhahaha... no worries lah claire.. just.. have fun! :D

  3. Teambuilding event.. your colleagues must be adventurous people, choosing that location.

    Anyway, don't think too badly of it, especially so since you haven't tried it yet. It should be an interesting place, take some pictures and share with us here when you're back !! :)

  4. Let's think positive. You are selected because they can see the potential of you in helping them build up the working spirit among your colleagues... Just do it... Yeah!

  5. that kind of adventure/trip i really really like

  6. hahahha.. all the best claire.. ^_^

  10. it would be fun. the last time I went for a leadership camp was in 2005!

  11. is this part of the "rela' thing that you were talking about? just in case bring some balm along just in case the mosquitoes come welcoming you!

  12. yearning for such event and you don't like it. Maybe u should suggest them to climb Mount Kinabalu next year.

  13. Come, trade place wif me. I like this kind of things. =D

    ps: I'll pray so that time will pass fast for you and God will keep you safe, ok?

  14. Oh, I'm so sorry, this is causing you to be stressed out!! So they make you go? When do you leave and for how long? It looks peaceful and pretty, maybe it will be more like a restful spa? I am very afraid of heights, too!!! Yes, last time I had to go up on the Skyline Drive, I peed my pants! Better bring extra panties!! Will they let you take pictures, I hope!

  15. Next time suggest to your management "no need to go to Gua whatever,, to team building, ,there is also a big rock in Penang to do likewise,,,, very big big rock,, called Hard Rock,,, see also got rock ma,, but this is Hard Rock Hotel..syiok betul,,,

  16. Omigawd!!! At our age, things like this don't look too exciting... But you're slim, fit and active - sap-sap-sui!!! Good luck...and have fun. I'm sure you can! LOL!!!

  17. i can relate because I am not adventurous too. but the place is beautiful. yes, join them. who knows, you might love your trip.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch
