As a Johorean i was quite excited to go back to Johor after spending quite some time outside Johor. Although it is just in Muar which is still a few hundred kilometers away from JB... yeah, it'll do.
Tuesday came and i had to wake up early. 5.30 in the morning *yawn*. After subuh prayers, i went the office to pick up Bobby and off we went to MOX in Tg Agas, Muar. We are cleaning and servicing some inter and after coolers of Ingersoll-Rand compressor. They have one big Ingersoll-Rand here in MOX, maybe next time it'll be Rolls Royce or some others.
Arrived in Muar after 2 hours of journey. Sleepy *yawn*. Can't think straight at that time. I really needed my black coffee at that time. Nothing else. But, i can't have one. Safety induction came in a few minutes later. Then, equipment setting. Then, another set of equipment setting. I need to learn all this man. But hey, it is past 11 a.m. and i haven't had my breakfast yet. No food since 5.30 a.m. no wonder i felt like i was fasting.
Luckily the power can not be supplied to the plant. They are on generator that day. At 11.30, they say that power will only be installed after 2 hours. Yey..it's break time for me. I am soooo hungry i could eat a whole zebra.
So i went to search for food. Not that i really need to search as now i am in Muar. What else do u want to eat in Tg Agas, Muar. The best beef murtabak is here. It is called Murtabak Singapore. Nice. Sangat nice. Sangat nice giler...
My friend and i (the 2 of us) finished the whole huge murtabak. Yeah, just the 2 of us and we can manage to finish everything. Reason being:
1. The murtabak is so very the nice. 2. We are so very the damn hungry.
I remembered last time when i was a little boy, my father would bring us the whole family to this shop for the murtabak. Yeah, this murtabak has been here since i can remember. Good memories. Emo lak masa makan murtabak tu. Teringat family members yang sekarang berada di serata alam ciptaan Tuhan.
My mama, lil sis and my elder brother and his family is now in London, my elder sis in Melaka and now i am in Muar reminiscing all the momories. Not to forget arwah ayah. Although that we are not close physically, but spiritually, all of my family members are so close to me. Close to my heart. *emo lak malam malam ni*
After late breakfast or should i say early lunch (which ever you prefer), i headed to this mosque. Masjid Sultan Ismail. Masjid ni pun banyak kenangan. Hehhe. Waited for a while before azan zuhur where i managed to get 10 minutes nap which felt like 10 hours of sleep. Wow, that was wonderful. After azan, i had my zuhur prayers and i headed back to MOX which is just 5 minutes drive from the mosque.
At first i thought that we could manage to complete everything by 6 p.m. However, we had to wait for the other contractor to bring out the inter coolers before we could clean them. And it took them more than 8 hours to take out the 2 cute inter coolers. How about that..?? So we waited and waited until it was about 7 p.m. at last everything is ready for us. We continued our work until it was almost 10.30 when everything is done.
I felt hungry again. Why... Let me think...
It is 10.30 p.m. and i haven't had anything since the murtabak. Almost 12 hours without anything. No wonder now i can fit into my 29" pants.
Tiring day. Enriching too. When i arrived home, it was 2.20 a.m. I was filthy, sleepy and hungry. What more can i say? I need my sleep.
Anyway Wednesday came and i am going to meet some people in Petronas at KLCC.
Best man..?? Hahha.. More of a best friend i guess.
Well last weekend was well spent by yours truely. Had a lot fun and a lot of food as well. It's good i guess to recover those almost 6 kilos lost for the last 3 months. Yeah, i can now fit into my 29" pants. I can only wear small size shirt as medium and large makes me look like i am wearing someone else's. Trust me. I am a size S. They dont have XS or SS here so i guess i'll be happy with S.
So last Friday, i went to watch The DaVinci Code at Bukit Raja. I was quite dissapointed with the movie a bit. Yeah, you can't actually fit in all 500++ pages into a 2 hour movie. I wish i haven't read the book before i went to see the movie. The book is more interesting.
Before we went to the movies, we had dinner at Chillies Bangsar. Who is this we anyway..?? It's me and my good friend lah. I had grilled chicken salad. Best giler. Too much that i cannot finish it.
Lihat ye semua. Fine salad with cheesy tortillas. Arif loves the tortillas. Ended up, he ate all 3 of my tortillas leaving me with only one. Belasah makanan aku ye..!! After dinner we headed back to Bukit Raja to watch the movie. Went back a bit late that night as the movie only started at 1200 midnight. Anyway, saturday came and i had to go for some shopping. Jamsari is getting married and i guess it'll be nice for me to get him something. I'll try to find something nice at IKEA.
So Saturday, we (again me and Arif) went to IKEA. Searched for a thing worth to be called a wedding present for dear Jamsari and his wife. Really am tired wlking through IKEA. Huge place. Stopped a while for lunch at the cafe where we both had roasted beef. It is quite plain but anything will do for an empty stomach.
After finding something for Jamsari and a few things for myself, we head down to Ikano Power Centre and The Curve. Nice place. The Curve has a slight resemblance of Covent Garden for those who have been there. After about four hours of walking finally we found a place to have coffee.
They have it here in Damansara. Kluang Railway Station Coffee. Macam tak percaya. I have been drinking this coffee since i was a little boy. Ayah used to love this coffee. I remember that one time we diverted one of our journey to Kluang, just to have a glass of iced kopi 'o'.
We had iced coffee and iced black coffee. Giler nice. I dont really care about ice blended coffee or mocha or cappuchino at starbucks or coffee bean. This coffee is even better than anything listed in starbucks' or coffee bean's menu. Trust me.
This is Arif.
Arif: Wei ko ambil la gambar aku kat sini. Pastu nanti ko masukkan dalam blog ko. BatuBata: Boleh la blah. Apa maknanya aku nak letak gambar ko dalam blog aku. Arif: Kerek siut.. BatuBata: Ye lah..Satu je..
So this is why i am putting this picture here.
Anyway, i really had a very good weekend. The day ended after dinner at Uptown Damansara where i had fried kuey teow kerang. Walk too much. Eat too much. Who cares...??!*#%
I recieved an sms last night from someone i dearly love. Someone who i think never knew how much i loved her and how high i looked upon her. She has always been very kind to me since the very first day we met. Although all the things that i've said or done to her all these years, she has always been kind to me.
Well, i made a comment on her. Well not to her. It's a comment on her fotopage. I think it was a dumb comment, and i think it has offended her. I just want her to know that i did not mean anything bad or nasty when i typed that comment.
To lovely x0ra, i am sorry if that comment i made offended you in any way. But offending you is the last thing that i wanted to do. Trust me.
Ever been in a situation where you can't really make your mind. I've been through it thousands or perhaps millions of times.
I cant make a decision to pick a pearl white v neck short sleeved t shirt or a charcoal black round neck long sleeved t shirt makes me buy both.
I cant decide whether to eat char kuey teow or hinanese chicken rice the other day during lunch and i ended up eating 2 portions of lunch.
I cant decide to subscribe to which mini package in astro makes me subscribe to all of them.
Trivial things..i guess it doesn't matter anyway. But still it is not good.
I know someone who really likes this person (say the name is person A) and at the same time likes another person as well (noted as person B). Yeah, person A and person B is like by the same person C. But now, it is no longer char kuey teow or hainanese chicken rice. Not a v necked short sleeved or a black long sleeved Zara.
This is Intel's add in The Star. I agree. It is all about choices. Life is about choices.
You meet a whole lot of people in life. Big, small, tall, short, dark, tanned, fair, round, square, blue, black, red, green all sorts of people. Guys, gals, girls, boys, ladies, gentlemen, man and woman or should i just put it male and female. Where is this thing going anyway..???
In search of a perfect soulmate what do we really do? Do we go high and low to look for the one who suits perfectly for us (sounds desperate enough i know)..or just wait and see until the jodoh comes to us. *Does jodoh knows his way to my house?*
Quoted from the movie Stepmom
Julia Roberts: You can either sit here in the cold, crying or do something? Crying or do something??
Well i choose to do something about it.
Well then how can you be certain to find them? And if you do finally find them, are they really the one for you or do you only think they are? And what happens if the person you're supposed to be with never appears, or she does, but you're too distracted to notice?
