Stuff I experienced outside!

Another Happy Weekend

16th Feb 2009

Hello everyone! How was your weekend? Did you fill it up with some exciting activities? Mine was a pretty hot (as in humid. stinky. panas) weekend, especially last Sunday. After mass at the church, Bunny and I had breakfast with his cousin, Julius. Meal was great. I think it was somewhere along Jln Imbi. Oh man, I could eat there everyday… only I get to eat there on Sundays only. :-(

After breakfast, Bunny and I met my brother and his partner friend for our usual “family gathering”. This time, we played bowling!

It was so much fun! Bunny enjoyed himself, he made us go through another round after we’ve done with the first game. LOL

We’re probably gonna make this a weekend activity from now onwards. Well, not that I’m a great bowler (I was the biggest loser on both games. HAHAHA) but I just love walking around the shopping mall, looking at sales they have. Maybe one of this weekend I’ll end up shopping some stuff or two for myself. *teehee*

Another Happy Weekend

4th Feb 2009

After National Zoo, Museum and the Park, this time – my partner and I, joined together by my brother and his friend, Geaff – went to another exciting place called Sunway Lagoon.

I think the last time I went there was back in 2003 with my family. Back then, the entrance fee wasn’t that expensive and complicated. There were choices like Dry Park and Wet Park, if I’m not mistaken.. To my surprise, they have like tons of Park these days. Extreme Park. Wildlife Park. Water Park. etc.

How much did we pay for our entrance fee? RM48. LOL. We took the cheapest one, because we didn’t think we’d have enough time to tour the whole park, since it was already close to 2PM when we arrived there.

This is how your ‘Tag’ would look like, for the cheapest entrance ticket. LOL

Tho we only had access to the Water Park and (er.. Dry Park? I forgot what it’s called lah) all 4 of us had so much fun. We went for the Tomahawk ride, train ride, water slide.. well, except for *someone* that is. That *someone* end up not taking anymore rides with the rest of us after getting jiggy with it on the train ride. Ha! Ha! Ha!

Man, I tell you.. that Tomahawk ride can really get you dizzy. Beats all the effects of running on a treadmills. Tomahawk gives you good exercise in terms of hand grips, voice control and the ability to open/close your eyes while you hang upside down. LOL!

Sunway Lagoon is also a good place to hang out if you love taking photos, like my “photographer” partner. He’d rather spend the day taking photos than hanging upside down on the Tomahawk with me! :-P But yeah, I had to give him some credit for his photos. Without him, we wouldn’t have tons of photos in the camera because we were too busy being kids, running around, screaming and laughing.

Oh, a word of advice from me tho: When you leave the Lagoon, try to refrain yourself from taking the “Free watch in exchange of your Sunway Lagoon tag” outside. Once you take those free watches, you’ll NEVER get your deposit back! >.< (unless of course, if you return the watches and go for another long queue for your deposit return) If you don't get what I'm saying, forget it. Just visit Sunway Lagoon and you'll know what I mean. Ha! Ha! Ha! PS: Sorry, very limited photos to share with you. You can view the rest of the photos in my Facebook album - if you're on my Friends list. (Some photos are too personal to share bah.. hehehe)

A Walk In The Park

30th Jan 2009

Hi everyone! How was your Lunar New Year? Hope you had a great one. Mine was quite sombre this year – well, it has been that way for many years since moving to KL. Back in Sabah, Lunar New Year would be a day filled with good foods, family gatherings (with my aunt’s family) and lots of money! So yeah.. this year was just the same like the previous years.

However, it wasn’t that bad at all because my partner and I went out for a walk in the park this year! LOL! By now, you should probably noticed how much we love doing outdoor things lately. Well, my partner loves taking photos ever since he developed this new-found love for photography. He has been taking photos after photos, and I wasn’t spared from his object experiment as well! :-P He’s still an amateur tho..He’s probably getting better in it than me. Even faster than me!

Well, that’s about it that I can share with you. We took quite a lot of photos actually, but truth is, I’m too lazy to edit and upload the photos. Hahahaha! And besides, the rest of the photos were our personal collection – I don’t really wanna share all our personal photos online for everyone to see. You’ll never know who’s viewing your photos online!

Oh, we might go out for another outdoor activities again soon. Anyone care to join? :-P Or anyone have any idea what other outdoor activities we should do? Visiting the custom rubber stamp factory perhaps? LOL

Just kidding, folks.. Enjoy your day. God bless!

Let’s Go To The Zoo, There’s Lots Of Things To Do

23rd Jan 2009

Do you still remember that song? It used to be played all over our local TV station back in those days.

Well last Sunday, I relive the memories of the Zoo Negara official song and paid a visit with my partner to the animals there. :-D

This is one of the first animals you’ll see once you enter the zoo.

Reminds me of Dumbo. I mean.. Jumbo. *teehee*

This one reminds me of that giraffe from Madagascar.. but I can’t remember his name!

My fav animal of all. HIPPO!!!!! Wish they come in PINK color as well!

A Visit To The Guitar Maker

20th Jan 2009

About a week ago, my BF took me to his favorite guitar maker – the person who made his unique Sapetar – and boy, did I had lots of fun staring and gawking at all the his beautiful, superb creations!

The first thing that caught my attention was a very unique piece called Sapelele.
(A combination of sapeSarawakian musical instrument – and ukulele.)

It reminds me so much of my BF’s sapetar – only his was a guitar version.
Cute sapelele, don’t you think?

Jeff, the sapelele creator, even gave us a demo on how the sapelele sounds like.
It was amazing!

We also managed to take a few shots of the custom guitar found in his workshop.

All of Jeff’s custom made guitars are made of very high quality materials and woods. Even his works are delicate that when you take a closer look at the details of the guitar, your breath will be taken away! It was THAT good.

It was fun visiting Jeff. Not only does the man have very good hands and imaginations for his guitar creations, Jeff is also a man with very good sense of humor. You’ll never feel awkward when talking to this super creative and talented man. Trust me!

Well, that’s about all the photos I can share with you. I couldn’t post the photos of his other, more beautifully created custom guitar due to privacy to the custom guitar owners. And besides, most of the beautiful ones are still in the process of making. Posting the unfinished photos wouldn’t be nice to both the creator and the owner, no?

But if you’d like to see the rest of Jeff’s creations, or even better, maybe want a custom guitar for yourself, do contact me. You had to go to him through me because I forgotten to take his contact details! LOL! (My BF has his contact no. so.. I guess I could ask him for you if you really need it) But do remember this, if you’re planning to get Jeff to create a guitar for you:


His creations are so beautiful, you wouldn’t mind spending extra on the guitar even after spending your money on online auto insurance. *hee*
