Basically the shop only opens during night time. Mostly the shops sell drinks and cakes. For those who is celebrating their birthday, this shop will give a free cake if provided that you show them your IC. ^_^
Hmm.. Actually the prices there is not cheap. One cup of Ice Chocolate can costs you around RM11. However, this shop does provide you board games and card games to play with while you sit there cosily, chit chatting with your fren and sipping on a nice cup of drink.

Here's the history:
Before the Battle of Agincourt in 1415, the French, anticipating victory over the English, proposed to cut off the middle finger of all captured English soldiers.
Without the middle finger it would be impossible to draw the renowned English longbow and therefore they would be incapablt of fighting in the future.
This famous English longbow was made of the native English Yew tree, and the act of drawing the longbow was known as "plucking the yew" or "pluck yew".
Much to the bewilderment of the French, the English won a major upset and began mocking the French by waving their middle fingers at the defeated French, saying,
"See, we can still pluck yew!"
Since "pluck yew" is rather difficult to say, the difficult consonant cluster at the beginning has gradually changed to a labiodentals fricative "F", and thus the words often used in conjunction with the one-finger-salute!
If is because of the pheasant feathers on the arrows used with the longbow that the symbolic gesture is known as "giving the bird". It is STILL an appropriote salute to the French today.
And yew thought yew knew every plucking thing!
Oops.. The last sentence is not said by me, k? ^^
But during lunch time he feedback that the air ticket from 1-10 Oct all is booked already. The only available ticket is after 14-Oct. Well, we haven't finalised anything at the moment. But hopefully i can go Macau sight seeing and enjoying myself. Lunch time, Hui Sze and Nick talked about a hotel at Macau. Now, let me recall, I think it's call Wynn Hotel. And later in the afternoon, Hui Sze sent out an email regarding that hotel's opening ceremony. Here is it, it's superb.

This is the first time i went to Camp Permai. Before i go, I heard from some of my colleagues that it is surrounded by forest and there is basically no facilities since the purpose of this camp is to let the residents go back to mother nature. The first thing my colleagues warn me is that there is a lot of mosqitoes there. So, as you can imagine, i had no fancy idea about this trip, except that i don't need to work on Friday. Hehe...
This is the wooden road towards the cabins.
This is the cabin where i stay with other colleagues, Michaelina, Yvonne and Molly. It is really like living in the urban area, there is no air-con, no telephone line and no TV. But luckily there is water heater. At least i don't have to bathe using cold water. hehe... But if i had the chance to go there next time, i would prefer to stay at the Tree House. Well, since i am living inside the forest, why not really experience how does it feels like living at a Tree House. Some more, it looks much cool... Hehe...

So today, dear dear said lunch we go SCR to eat laksa and i MUST order one and eat it today. (Basically she forced me) Haha.. you know lah.. i cannot say no to my dear dear one... So during lunch all of us, ^_^ order laksa. I never really ask them to accompany me but they all ordered laksa anyway. And when the food arrived, dear dear thaught me THE way of eating Laksa. First, you have to picit the lemon into the sambal. Then you poured all the sambal into the laksa and mixed it. Then, it-ta-ta-ki-mas. It's time to eat your laksa.
Haha... 9-Oct-2007, this is the date that I ceased to become a Laksa Virgin. Indeed it's a day to remember....

The location:- Mount Santubong located in Kuching, my hometown, which can be reached in 1 hour plus of car ride. Lol... Aww... I make myself sound so small but nevertheless, i feel proud of myself for being able to make it to the top. ^_^
hmm.. can't really remember when is the trip, but it's on a nice Saturday morning. Our gang (7 persons) gathered together then went to Santubong in two cars, reaching Santubong around 9.45am in the morning. Without any delay we start climbing the mountain. I never really knew that climbing in 45 degree vertically can demand so much of my physical strength. But since it's only within one hour of the climb, i don't really dare to complain too much, but nevertheless after one hour of climbing, i start to voice out that i will never be able to make it to the top of the mountain.
There is 3 pits along the climb for ppl to take a rest. When reaching Pit #1, i am super happy. And i told my mountain climbing mate that i will stay at this pit and wait for them to climb up to the top and down again. Haha.. I was really out of breath when i reach Pit #1. But i never knew all of my friends are so enthusiastic. They actually motivate me to move up to at least reach Pit #2. Ellee even gave me his red bull drink so that i might have the energy to climb up the rest of the mountain. =P
It took us 7.5 hours for the whole trip, 3.5 hours up and 4 hours down. By the time we reach our cars, my legs are sore and basically can't move anymore. Although tiring, but i still feel proud that i was able to climb to the top (even though I am label as "Z bottleneck" as I am the one that lagging behind due to my lack of physical fitness)

Hmm... planning to cut my hair short this week. But i'm not sure whether i will regret my decision later or not.. but dun care lah.. just tied up into a pony tail. Soon my hair will grow longer.
Now, anything new or not... let me think *thinking hard*. Recently life is a little bit boring. But nevertheless i still find time to go shopping. lol.. bought a new skirt. =D Oh ya, i just finish reading a book titled " The little prince". Basically it's a short story book with fairy tale like story. It's about the author meeting this little prince who is come from a planet far far away and that things in his planet is all small. What's special about this book is that it slips in the reality of the grown up world and some of the behaviour that we are so familiar with that the corner of your mouth will turn when u read it. =)
