Christmas coundown in Upper Penang Road

Sad but true,Christmas in Penang feels a little pathetic, i don't see much decorations in the malls, and not much celebration at work too :(

Luckily, i still have a bunch of friends who are crazy and fun to celebrate this joyous season with me.

My farewell party

Last friday marked my last day at Spansion, today, i'm blogging from my new company. Yes, I'm currently working in Altera.

I never thought i would have the courage to resign, it's not easy ok! especially when i'm so comfortable and happy. But we're human being, we always wanted something better, and won't mind the risk.

Throughout my 3 years in Spansion, I've grew so much, met tones of great people and made a few good friends. Life has been serving me quite well, I'm always very lucky in everything, always met the right person at the right time, do the right thing when there are opportunities.

I supposed the most unforgettable event was the mega-retrenchment whereby 70% of employees was forced to leave. I never cried easily in public but that time, i couldn't help myself...i bursted into tears when i had to see my colleagues leave.

I decided to hold onto it when the company's was at its lowest point, ironically,i chose to leave when it's doing pretty well now.

Anyways, I had a few farewells lunches and parties during my last week of work, THEY WERE CELEBRATING MY LEAVING! alright, joking..so here're the pictures, at UPR.

Lini and Jen aint my colleagues but they joined in the fun, i forced them to! *evil grins*

Moved again

I know it's terrible, in 3 years and I've moved 4th time already. The worse thing is that i have tons of things and a normal car is unable to fit in all. Every time i move to a new place, i will need to hire lorry services and at least 2 person to help me.

Last year, i terrified Sim with the amount of things i have and he warned me not to move house in at least a year's time. This year, Jeewei said the same thing, LOL! I can't help it, u can't blame me for having so much things, i don't go home often and i have all my things here in penang with me.

Anyway, packing and unpacking was quite fast and smooth, thats because I've been repeating this so many time already.

Here's a picture of my old place, it was quite warm and dark at times. But i guess the main reason i dislike the place is the neightbourhood, too noisy and messy.

DSC_0208

and my new room...

DSC_0210

I'm so in love with the windows and the amount of sunlight i get in the day time. It's always very windy, there was one night it was so windy that i slept without the fan and it's still super cold.

DSC_0212

I didn't bring in any furnitures but my craft table and the shelf.

DSC_0213

I also love the fact that i can doze off in my bed while watching TV.

DSC_0216

The living hall, and it's equally windy, a lot of times, we don't have to on the fan.

DSC_0217

The dining area..

DSC_0215

So, i guess thats about it! I forgot to take pictures of the kitchen and the bathrooms but hack, i'm too lazy to transfer pictures again..

Do you know that I've change to BlackBerry Bold 9700? super cool phone and i can BBM or Whatsapp my friends anytime ..i'm hooked!

Penang Bridge Marathon 2010

It was an impulsive decision , i joined Penang Bridge marathon this year simply because of YT told me she can get RM5 discount on the registration. fml..yes, i've been jogging quite often since a few months ago but it wasn't solely for this marathon, because i wanted to slim down that's all..

But, instead of slimming down, i actually gain a bit of weight. All because of Mr. Prawn's fault, he has this appetizing face wan! I tell you, it's miraculous! I am perfectly alright of having yogurt only for dinner if i dont see him, once he comes over to hang out abit , i feel damn freaking super hungry one, and i can't focus on anything buy food in my mind..

anyway, back to my marathon story..

That weekend i was pretty good girl, i didn't go out late at night, slept early and ate healthy. I slept at 10pm the night before and woke up at 430am. The 1st thing I shouted out when i opened my eyes was..

" SHIT!!! it's raining!!!!! how ah? "

YT called, but we decided to try out luck, it's such a waste if we just call it off and go back to bed right?

It was still raining when we reached there, it wasn't bad enough, I totally forgot to bring my running chip (which is used to record my time) !!! at 1st i thought i left it in YM's car, so i made him come back then to realised it was at home, FML big time!

anyway, i didn't bother, not like i'm gonna be in the top 15 or what right? so...yeah..

At 6am, it was still drizzling when the marathon kicked off, but it stopped son after we'd started. The air was breezing and cold, it was a good start :)

marathon_2marathon_3

It's a dryfit jersey, not bad heh? I was telling YT that it reminds me of the minons from Despicable me, especially when you see from afar while everyone was hopping like beans . Cute to the max !

marathon_4

I'd expected that it'll be a bit tough since i never jogged 10km before, but i was so proud of myself that i finished 10km in 67mins (the official time) and ranked within 350 over 3000 participants (women category only).

marathon_1

I shall try to do better next year :)

Steph's weekend

My weekend was pretty quiet. I didn't want to exhaust myself mainly because I'm preparing for the penang bridge marathon on Sunday morning.

On Friday night, I went Crepe Cottage again, for late dinner and Mango Cup for dessert, sinful meal but who cares, nobody is allow to diet on weekends, it's a sin!

Watched Harry Porter 7 midnight show, premier class somemore! But it was quite disappointing, the plot was slow and too much craps. Anyway, i don't like Harry Porter in general, haha!

Slept at 3am on friday night, but i woke up at 7 something to go jogging with YT, after that, we went to eat my favourite halfboiledegg/toast for breakfast. It was a good start for Saturday!

went home and it was only 10am! i didn't know what to do, because i don't usually wake up so early on saturday....so, i tried to wake Shawn up but failed! that fella is an genuine pig..

waited for him until 4pm before he could bring me to power people mall a.k.a Island plaza for Tutti Fruitti...so terrible right? Then chilled at Sunset Bistro and watched sunset before dinner.

just in case u didn't know, sunset bistro is located by the beach, u can either choose to sit on the deck or on the beach with ur legs buried in the sand...

da-pig i was talking about..

I hit the gym and ran on the treadmill for a freaking 50 minutes (slightly more than 7km)! what an achievement, everyone please applause for me!

Deepavali weekend

Long story short, I'm supposed to have a girly trip with YT, Jerine and Gigi to Cameron Highlands for the weekend but I canceled it last minute, because I need to be back to KL for my primary schoolmate's wedding celebration.......

but...

she canceled the party last minute! So, I'm stuck in the island alone!

..okay, not really alone at least Jerine came back on Thursday, and we went to Crepe Cottage in Gurney Drive for dinner.

03112010100

03112010098

the crepes/pancakes were super yummilicious, but they serve like tortoise, took them more than half an hour to serve.

on the following day (Friday), YT, yungming and I went back to Crepe Cottage for dinner again, hehe! it was freaking irresistible !

On Saturday, Prawn picked me up for lunch.

06112010110

he brought me to this place called, Summer Garden..somewhere near..er... i don't know! i was busy talking in the car...:P

06112010114

He had Caesar salad and I had Katsujyu( Japanese pork rice with egg)

06112010115

Had english tea because he was having a bit of hangover, muhahaha!!

06112010121

after then, we went to Island Plaza to check out the newly opened cinema, called, WCineMax . The tix price is slightly more expensive than GSC, RM12 and RM6 for 3D specs rental.

The cinema is awesome, very spacial leg space, good sound system.

06112010119

before the movie starts, we went to DOME for tea! Prawn had a humongous choc chips cookie.

06112010118

and i had ice-mocha with terribly loads of whipped cream and a piece of tiramisu. Gosh, soooo much sugar!

06112010122

it was about 7pm after the movie and since both of us were still quite full, we went to check out this new place call Heritage Coffee who serves not only coffee, but EVERYTHING! including "happy drinks"

I'm thinking to skip dinner since it's already quite late. But i don't know how we ended having BakKutTeh at 9 something at night...

ohmeekott! I had such a foodfull weekends!
