Down the memory lane...

Day 3 in Hull... Weather is nice, not too cold...

It's a small city, not bad, people are nice. But of course Nottingham is much nicer!

Had a pleasant dinner with the Global RSE team... Had a good laugh with the UK team... Thai team was also sporting... I kindda like them!

Can't wait to go to London though...

Berakhirnya satu penantian....

After a stressful week of waiting and following up, Roohii finally got his new toy!
Without waiting further, we went for a ride that night, together with the rest of the GBB...

Suppose to have supper at Yik Mun Tanjung Malim but the shop has closed. So we end up having supper at Ulu Bernam R&R...

But I must say, no regrets in getting that bike!!!!

A dream come true...

My other half finally gets his dream bike. It's nice to see your loved one happy. Kalau tak boleh tidur jugak tak tau la kenapa!

Anyway, me as 'pembonceng tegar' is also excited for it to reach home. Looking forward for many-many adventure to come...

A note to my beloved => I hope you are happy with your new toy. Do bring me along to wherever you'd be heading to especially to our northern neighbouring country... No hanky panky ya!!!

Trip to UK

This Saturday I will be flying off to UK to attend an induction programme organised by HQ. When I got the news I was damn excited! It's not about the travelling but rather getting the chance to go back to the place where it is filled with good memories....

You see, my life in UK was one of the best part of my life. Of course there are other good things that happened in my life like getting married, having my kids, but life in UK was something that I would like to repeat... Some people don't understand and think that I am excited for the free travelling and getting away from family...

Whatever other may think, I just wanna be happy for me... I am looking forward to go back down the memory lane and will cherish every moment of it...

Have to keep fit... get up and exercise!!!!

Signed up with Fitness First again, for the second time!

The first time round became home member of Menara Axis. At that time office was at Jalan 19/1 PJ, so quite convenient. Then office moved locataion to Damansara Heights, upgraded to passport holder. So workout was at John Hanckock, during lunchtime. That was good because walking to the gym was the warming up session.

Then I moved job to GSK in Ulu Kelang. At first tried going to class in KLCC, but I find it was rather troublesome and clashes with my other schedule. So I terminated my membership (with very heavy heart!).

Wangsa Walk came into the picture near GSK's office. Celebrity Fitness was opened. Joined that club, but sorry to say, nothing beats Fitness First.

Now I have moved to RB whereby office is just opposite the Curve. Apa lagi, pucuk di cita, ulam mendatang. After settling down with the new office, new environment, new boss, new colleagues, I signed up again last Thursday.

What a feeling! I miss those good group exercises conducted by Fitness First instructors. As I have been members of 2 fitness centre, I am really a Fitness First supporter! I just love their group exercises because I am not the type who can do workout on my own. The choreography is systematic and standard throughout the clubs, meaning that in whichever club I go, with different instructor, the steps are the same. So you wont get lost. My favourite classes are BodyStep, BodyJam and BodyPump. In addition, I get to manage my stress in a good way... I really let my hair down during BodyJam... hehehehe...

Ok guys, gotta hit the gym now...

Koh Lipe The Sequel….. Hatyai Bike Week 8-10th July 2011!!!

I know this have been waaaayyyyy overdue! But only now that I could squeeze in a bit of my time for this blog…..

After we had a marvelous trip to Koh Lipe, we were enthusiastically excited to bring our families along to Thailand. Without any further a due, our beloved organizer, Mr. Tasya organized a trip to Hatyai the following weekend. Yes, we are one crazy bunch of people!!!! The plan was to take the bus on Friday night, and arrive Hatyai morning of Saturday, shop till you drop and take the bus home on Sunday morning. Sound simple huh? Well, not as simple as we thought so!

Tasya managed to secure our bus tickets. We took the VIP bus that can accommodate 27 people and our group alone was 24! In my head I was telling myself, I pitied the other 3 person… Sure bosan giler dgn kegilaan kami!

Anyway, the journey starts at Puduraya. The bus was scheduled to take off at about 11.30pm. It was unfortunate for us because that Friday night, the police closed many roads in KL because of the demonstration planned by BERSIH the next day. Abg Sham & Kak Izan and family arrived rather late and we were really worried if they would miss the bus. Fortunately for them, our bus got stucked somewhere and we waited till almost 1am for the bus. Hati sudah agak panas masa tu…..

The bus company then ushered us to Jalan Duta Bus Station, because the buses can’t get into Puduraya due to the road closure. Once we reached Jalan Duta, we expect our bus was ready to pick us up, but unfortunately againg, we had to wait for another 1.5 hours for the bus to arrive. Adoi, I tell you, I was like really agitated! The worse part was that our bus had ‘extra’ passengers that refuses to come down from the bus. The bus company has mistakenly issued out extra tickets for these fellas. The bus people try to coax them to come down the bus, but they refuse to budge. At the end, we had to pretend to take another bus and only after we all boarded the ‘new’ bus, they all come down the bus. Then quietly the driver of our bus move away to another area and we switched buses! Kelakar pun ada…. Only at 3.30am we depart from Jalan Duta Bus Station!

We reached the boarder around 11am, and the immigration office was flooded with people! I think we queued for about 1 hours just to pass through the immigration officer. It was really a patience-testing moment! People were jumping queue and our big sister, Kak Izan really showed her taring!  Jangan mare kak! We love you for doing that for us actuallynya!

We got to our hotel and we didn’t waste any time. We straight away went to the Market to have lunch and did a bit of shopping. We then returned to the hotel to drop our things and did another round of shopping nearby our hotel. At about 4pm we took the tuk-tuk to the floating market. Haaaa that was interesting!

After having our dinner at the floating market, we straight away went to the Hatyai Bike Week. As our journey started with an hiccup, we would expects further hiccups right? One of the tuk-tuk had a flat tyre and we had to stop by the road side to help change the tyre!!!!

Hatyai Bike Week was happening! My other half really enjoyed himself… and I believe there will be future Hatyai Bike Week in our agendas…..

Our day did not end there…. Went back to the hotel and get ourselves 1 round of foot massage! Aaaaaaaa….. heaven!

The next day was basically going home day. Everything went on well, until we reached the border! 2 of the bus passengers went missing! Poor bus driver has to search them high and low. That incident alone took us about 2 hours delay of our journey. It was very inconsiderate of them and we suspected that couple have something fishy going on!

We finally reached KL at about 9pm….

It was a tiring but enjoyable trip, full of excitement, anxiety and events!

Asked to repeat it? Well, yes without the hiccup!!!!!
