My Episode With My Old Junk

oooooh... I am so tired... Just came back from my "teambuilding course" in Pengkalan Hulu. Once reaching my office at around 8pm, I got down from the bus and quickly ran to my car to start up the engine. When it sprang to life after awhile, I was so relieved! Why? Cos I drove my 25 years old junk car to stay one night there....

While driving home, I wind down the window, after awhile, when I wanted to wind up again, it got stuck halfway, couldn't go down nor up... gosh...

Reaching home, took my girl for dinner in Perak Stadium. Halfway through dinner, I saw my church friend. He came over and asked me, "hey, your car is ABF xxx?" Immediately I replied yes, wondering why he asked... then he said, "The headlights are still on!" Quickly I ran to the car again (in one night, I ran to my old junk two times!)

Before I started the car, I said a word of prayer.. please do not let the engine die, Lord...

And of course, it didn't ... phew.... what a night... this incident has taught me not to use my old junk at night...nor park it in my office overnight too....


  1. so did you enjoy your trip at pengkalan hulu?

  2. Thank God! (And, if the engine won't start that moment, I'm wondering what you're going to do ^_^)

  3. Luckily yr car could still start.

  4. And don't call it junk for it has served you well....right? :p

  5. Enjoyed reading your post because you made it sound so adventurous... Inspired by your team-building course, I guess... Haha

  6. Why your car can't start after one night parked there?

  7. How was the teambuilding? Was it as bad as you had feared? Did you have any fun?

  8. 25 years ok... Just take good care of it - service often, check engine often. Not when sakit, baru look for doctor...

  9. Are you back now, Claire? Good! :D God kept you safe. =D

  10. hahaha time to sell it and get a new one! :P

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 here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
