Salam wbt. It has been a long time i didn’t write a blog post. The last entry was in March lol. 8 months passed. Time do fly really fast ya. Actually there are not much activity i that i do past 8 months. I’m working yo. It really difficult to apply for leave because my travel partner is also in the same department, so if 2 people take leave together it’ll be difficult to adjust the schedule (my department got 5 permanent person, with additional 1 or 2 person… rarely). My department applied shift system, hence it’ll difficult to join other activities plan by my other colleagues because i also work on Saturday and Sunday ….. and Public holiday. But don’t misunderstood me.. i don’t hate shift system ok. haha
So let me recap the activities that i managed to do past 8 months:
March – Holiday to Sabah (10 days)
April – Back to Terengganu (my hometown)
May – Work trip to Johor Bahru (5 days)
July – Back to my hometown in Terengganu for raya (~12 days)
September – Trip to Sibu and Mukah during EidAdha Holiday. (4 days)
October – Hiking at Gunung Gading, Lundu and visit Jangkat Waterfall (2 days)
November – Terengganu again 10 days..(where my heart is) . But i started falling in love with Sri Aman. how?
For December, I’m actually planning for another hiking activity but the roster maker seem reluctant to let us take leave (it’s just for 2 days btw) (**I nak EL lah klau camni hihi just kidding). Later i’ll write a post for my Sabah Trip and Hiking Trip, insyAllah.
Salam wbt. Lama x menulis kat sini. Nak kata sibuk, tak jugak.. xde idea kot. hehe.
Hmm what i’m gonna write today? Okay let me introduce Sri Aman.. Btw i’m not a Sri Aman local, i’m just a government servant working here till a certain time. Some day, i’ll return back to my hometown but now let me just stay here, far away from the people that hurt and lie to me. I’m missing my family a lot.
Actually i’m new to Sri Aman town. Sri Aman is just a small town that u can finish round/pusing2 in just 1 day, and few places for food. Not for food hunter la kot. I didnt really know a lot of place to eat, but hey here i name a few:
Serve dinner. Got fried rice, plain rice and also other heavy food. There also lighter meal like nugget or fries if u just want to sit there and chit-chating with ur friend. So far i’ve tried Nasi Sotong Penyet (basically consist of plain rice and fried sotong and sambal). Ok la, not bad. I’m not a picky eater.
People usually go here for lunch. If i’m not mistaken, the restaurant is close on Tuesday. Served indonesian/malaysian style food (nasi lauk campur, nasi goreng, also got nasi arab and many other) but if u come here a bit late ~1.30pm above, there usually not much food left. My colleague has her favourite menu –> nasi goreng ayam bagi pedas2 everytime we eat there. Haha. But she’s already transfer back to Semenanjung.
No need to introduce this one. Everybody know uncle Colonel. LOL
Here, there’s mixture of chinese and malay stall. I haven’t try here yet. My friend recommend Laksa Penang by a Malay stall over here. (The only laksa penang in Sri Aman i think?)
Fast food chain : Singapore Chicken Rice (SCR), Sugarbun, Honeybee
Honeybee also have bread, bun, cake and patisseries.
There are also other places to eat..ask local people in sri aman for further info. haha. k bye
Happy new year 2016 to all. Wishing all the goodness and prosperities for us along this year. So my resolution for 2016 are quite a few. Haha. Let me list down some of it:
Actually i want to stop buying new perfumes. I’ll use all the perfume i brought previously till the last drop then i’ll consider getting a new one. Well, i wanna see if i can achieve this goal or not. Ohh perfumes. Lol~
I want to save money. Full stop.
I want to save more money. Haha
I’ll be careful in accepting ‘friends’ invitation for ‘tea-time’ or ‘bbq’ because i dont want to fall into the trap of MLM meeting/brainwashing!! Can u let me eat in peace please?
Baking at least once in a month. (currently i’m baking nutella cupcake, still in oven. hmmm omg the smell is so good. I’ll update later if i’m satisfied with the taste lol)
Never let my family down. Helping them is one of my duty.
Okay, i think thats all for my 2016 resolution. Maybe i’ll add more. Opss i forget. I want to start eating healthy and reduce fatty meal. I think i already gain much2 weight in 2015.
As I promised previously, I’m gonna post about my trip to Orchid Garden, Kuching. I went there with my friend, Miss S, of course with her car, coz I didn’t have one. Hehe
The entrance fee in nada! Nil! Free entrance, I like! Teehee. Went there ~ 11.00 am becoz someone woke up very late ehemm *clear throat* . It’s located near Astana. If you are from Kek Lapis Shop, it’s about 3 km journey from there. Better go during morning or late evening, to avoid being directly under the sun, very hot u know. Recommended for orchid-lover, especially emak2. Not really sure if bapak2 will enjoy this place or not. Hehe.
So here some pictures I managed to snap. Dont ask me the specific name for the orchid. All I know is this flower is called Orchid, that’s all. Haha
Actually there’s also a cold house? for Orchid that it’s natural habitat is at a lower temperature, but the house is under renovation during my visit last time.
We spend about 1 and half hour inside the garden and then went to fill our grumbling stomach. It’s lunch hour already. After moments of difficult discussion of which place to eat, we decided to go to My Mom’s Laksa near Petrajaya. I ate Laksa Sarawak. It was delicious. Recommended for whoever come to this restaurant. They do have other food in menu, but I really crave for Laksa Sarawak at that time. 🙂
Last weekend, I have 2 days off-day (on Saturday and Sunday). Hence I give myself some ‘me’ time, discovering Kuching solo (err actually not really solo).
On saturday morning, after waking up from sleep I randomly plan to stay at hotel for 1 night at the city of Kuching. After browsing for an affordable hotel price at Agoda, Booking.com and hotel’s official website, I decided to stay 1 night at Riverside Majestic Hotel. I paid a bit cheaper from the actual price because of promo. teehee. Btw, I did my booking first at website booking.com, and only pay during my check in. I stayed at Deluxe Room with price ~ RM200 per night (including gst and breakfast). I was satisfied with the room, very comfortable and plus, it’s riverview. I like that! except the part that the outer side of the window was actually quite dusty and errrr moldy? Here I share some of the pictures of my hotel room.
After check in around 3pm, I stroll along the Kuching Waterfront and then i took a short boat ride to the other side of the river. Why? It’s because I want to buy kek lapis sarawak lah~ The fee per ride is around 50 cent – Rm1 (according to the boat owner). If u’re lucky, then u pay for 50cents only. After reaching there, u can see Mira Kek Lapis shop. Got free sample of kek lapis for you to taste over here. I took a few bites (err a lot actually) of kek lapis sample. The taste.. ok lah. Hehe. Not a fan of kek lapis, but I can say that the fruit cake over there is marvellous and delicious and the texture is not dry. Actually there’s a lot of other shops selling kek lapis, besides Mira Kek Lapis House, example Dayang Salhah Kek Lapis (to go here, you need to go on your right side after going down from your boat, walk ~100meter and then turn left. The shop is located beside the Mosque). Or else use Waze la, apalagi kekeke.
After spending some time in Kek Lapis Shop, I headed back using the boat across the river. Then I just walk randomly at any street near the hotel. Got myself ‘Aiskrim Gula Apong’ at DP Gula Apong stall. The stall is located just beside Kapit Hotel. Can use waze for direction lol. Aiskrim Gula Apong is a must eat food if u’re in Sarawak. Haha. Unfortunately I didn’t snap any picture of the icecream. Then I went to Tun Jugah Mall, browsing for books in Popular Bookstore. Got myself 3 novels tsk tsk tsk. Then I went back to the hotel to avoid any more money flying out from my purse kekeke.
The next day (Sunday), I went to Orchid Garden with my friend. I’ll write about it on the next entry k, 🙂
Hi!. This is my second blog as my previous blog can’t be access, might be due to expired email address. haih~
Actually, it has been 1 year I’ve not written anything on my blog. Such a long hiatus. My blog is like my online diary, so that one day (if i’m still living and breathing in this beautiful world) i can read again what i’ve jotted down in this blog, all the sweet, bitter and sour memories that i’ve experiencing in my life, and a place to pour down emotions, to lessen the burden in my heart.
Till then, take care. See u in the next entry. Have a nice day.
p/s: I would like to improve my english skills in writing, hence most of my posts will be in english. (reader: hmmm…. like I care~ duhh.. kekeke)
