Megasale's temptation

Yesterday I went to Spring, and the temptation is ...........


As you all know, Christmas is around the corner and Megasale is ON, baby! (I used to LOVE megasale, but now...... T_T )

Remember this post? I saw these two clothes are on 50% discount.

50%, ok?!?!? Lima puluh, fifty, wu si, direct translation, HALF PRICE OK?

This is the shirt I loved most in all my tryings. However, I remember seeing this same clothes on my colleague the other day. Need to double check to see if it's true before buying it. Else I'll feel tulan again.

Original Carwash

This post is so out-dated. But better late than never right?


Was it 2 weeks ago? or a month ago? I can't really remember. But I did remembered going to Original CarWash to have my car wash and polish, and have a light snack there with my uni fren, Applely.

My car
Beeper when the car is done

The deco of this place is "original", which means the deco in this restaurant you can't find it at other places in Sarawak. Why do I say so? Because most of the deco inside the restaurant are actually antics. Hmm.. Maybe antics is too fancy, things or stuffs that are used during our grand-parents time is more accurate.

Antiques everywhere... Rich man's playground.
How Lian right?

But I have to admit, the food it so-so only lor. The next time I go here is definitely to wash my car and have a drink and relax and read a magazine. That's all. But the plus thing is, my sexy MYVI is actually park besides a RED Ferrari le... (Err.. is it a Ferrari?)

No idea abt the taste

so-so only. I dun like it

Red Ferrari?

Short talk

Went to have my annual dental check-up, this time at Dr Goh. The total time I spent on that chair........


Then when it's time to pay for the bill, I asked "How much?"





Hah? So cheap one meh? How come last year I go have my dental check-up is RM65 le?

Manufacturing sector crushed

Western Digital, formerly known as Komag, is confirmed shutting down by March 2009. This shocking new came out after lunch and people are are still having the aftermaths effect of the news. WD closing down??! This means the unemployment rate in Kuching is going to sky-rocket after March.

Hmm.. I am wondering how long can my company survive. 4 days compulsary leave per month starting next year is a fact. But we can't be sure how long this is going to save our company. I think I need to look for part time jobs liaw.....

Some of the "cute" suggestions given by my colleagues:

  1. Grow mushroom
  2. Give tuition classes
  3. Learn how to do ABC. Then open a ABC stall (Ching's)
  4. Learn how to do SUSHI. Then open a sushi stall (Didi's)
  5. Open nursery (Pregnant lady)
  6. Grow cherry tomatoes. Then sell it.
  7. Recycle old clothes. Patch up those torns and cuts. Don't buy new clothes.
  8. Cook everyday. Don't go out eat.
See how terrible the situation is now?

Carvery, Kuching

Magenta used to be on my list of favorite dining place in Kuching. But last Friday, I finally set food to Carvery, which is situated at Pending. The truth is, I confess I'm having an affair now. I am officially: "one foot on two ships"

I fall in love with the cosy design and nice food. Maybe because Christmas is around the corner, the restaurant is decorated like a hotel setting in Europe. The purpose of this lunch was to thanks all the TM EXCO for their hardwork during the 5th Anniversary Dinner.

Well, since our President and Vice President of Education decided to "chia" us, of course I choose the most expensive meal in the course, the lunch buffet. It turns out to be 8 dishes of meat (lamb chop, chicken chop, lamb leg, hotdog, fish,etc etc), which side dishes of salad.
