The Ho Chi Minh Trip!

I was stalking some photos on facebook when suddenly I saw ME.

'Hey that's me! berghh why did this person upload a hideous photo of me?!' *marah kejap*

It was a photo when I was in Vietnam a few months back. I haven't had the time (been busy with uni and business, cewah) to blog about it yet. hehe. So overdue right?

I went in April to Ho Chi Minh City. It was actually supposed to be a learning trip for me, but I ended up shopping most of the time! hehe. They sell pretty cheap stuffs, you can't even resist! There was this market called 'Ben Thanh' Market where you can get shirts, jeans, handmade crafts and sandals etc etc at a VERY cheap price IF you know how to bargain. If not, you'll end up like me, buying a blouse that costs around RM35 which was supposed to only cost about RM10. sigh.

I warn you if you wander around the market wearing your hijab, the sellers would automatically know that you're probably a Malaysian. Because they know Malaysians always go there to shop.

Be prepared to hear dialogues like;

"Kakak...kakak...kakak cantik...mari beliiiii...kakak mari beliiii"

They kept on repeating 'kakaaakkkkkk' and then pull your hands towards them. Sometimes you just have to be strict and say NO. Otherwise you'll end up spending hundreds of dollars!

Some of the rombongan people who shopped their lives out! hehe

Besides that, I also had the chance to visit the Cu Chi Tunnel. It was the place where the war between the Vietnamese and US armies took place. It was so cool seeing how the Vietnamese prepared their hideout place. They dug a zig-zag tunnel to prevent the enemy from directly aim their guns at them. Genius thinking! Plus, the tunnel was sooooo small that I can barely fit in! I almost felt like fainting due to excessive claustrophobic feeling. S.C.A.R.Y...

Finally I see light! Thank Goodness!

Even had time to pose at the main entrance hehe

Vietnamese beef noodle soup; a must try dish at Vietnam!

After a tiring day of shopping and exploring tunnels, finally headed back to hotel and had dinner at a nearby restaurant. opsie can't remember the name of the restaurant!

All in all, it was a great experience to be there. Seeing what the people are like and how the culture is over there.

And finally, leaving for Malaysia.......

aih, semua orang punya beg beranak!

p/s of course I wouldn't put that hideous photo here! haha

Song of the night: Love Like This by SS501

Before I say goodnight, I'd love to share this song here. Enjoy! :)


Assalamualaikum... 1st time join segmen sbnrnye ni :)

Free SJ-M concert!! (oops I actually meant: Himpunan Satu Juta Belia, Malaysia)

Do you know what was the best thing about the National Youth Day Celebration in Putrajaya? the FREE SUPER JUNIOR CONCERT of course! My friends left home as early as 11am for Putrajaya. all because of we were afraid of not being able to 'cop tempat' where you can see the boys clear enough! hehe.

Boy was it soooo hot yesterday! I was sweating like crazyyy! thank god for the air-conditioned surau where we sat there waiting for night to come. but anyways, it was a fun day indeed! there were many booths and exhibitions for the crowd to visit. TV3 also had their booths up; Wanita Hari Ini (i think!), kids@ tv3, news etc. And guess who I saw at the news booth? hihi it was the guy who reads the news for Buletin 1.30 tengahari. I cant remember what was his name, but what I know is he seems to be much good-looking in person! a really tall guy. the one with the mata sepet2 one. wohoo. handsome boleh tahan la! :P

There were plenty more exhibits, so instead of bore you with my writing, I'll just let the pictures do the talking! :)

honestly, it was scary seeing the armies in their uniform! I don't know why, probably I felt like I was in the middle of a war or something!

okay, naik kereta kebal nak pergi serang reban ayam serama kat depan rumah pliz! lets go ecah!

they looked super coooool okay, especially the one in black! holding that gun and pointing it towards us! aiyooo..

this was the stage where they had performers playing Malaysia's traditional music/equipment; Cak Lempong 36 hours non-stop. if they succeed, they'll be listed in the Malaysia Book of Records! it was super tiring watching them play, kept repeating the music over & over again. :P

and yes, that's me, an astronaut wannabe! :)

the super tall skeleton-y ghost i suppose. am not sure why they had him in the 1st place!

the much awaited event of the day! Super Junior M live concert for Hari Belia Negara, Malaysia. I bet many wouldn't have come if they didn't bring SJM, no?

super awesome I tell you I was one of the front row viewers! hihi. so cooool! Aisyah even brought a few headbands and light sticks from home. she probably knew that I wasn't going to bring one! hehe. too besar untuk letak dalam bag la. :P

super loud crowd cheering for their first performance of the night: PERFECTION
super awesome track and dancing!

Serena C hosted the event last night. 6 lucky people had the chance to be on stage and hugged by the boys! it kinda reminds me of 'Never Say Never' film by Justin Bieber. haha. doesn't he too invite girls on stage and give them roses and hugs as well? lol.

all in all, SJM daebak!!

Review: Restoran Wadihana Islamic Kitchen @ Section 9 B.B.Bangi

Last night, the whole family had dinner at Restoran Wadihana Islamic Kitchen @ Section 9, B.B.Bangi. Dad invited my aunt who lives somewhere in Saujana Impian as well. It was actually a dinner for welcoming dad's friend. I can't recall what his name was, but what I know is that he's from Belgium, married to a Philippine lady. And they're here in Malaysia because he's got work-related stuffs to deal with over here. Well, I didn't get to converse much with the couple as I was sitting at the other end of the table (there were like 14 people altogether and dad allocated me to sit with the kids! I wonder if this should be a compliment or not! hehe)

Well anyways, since it was my first time eating there, I’m thinking of writing a review of the place for those of you haven’t been there yet. The restaurant is quite clean and it’s suitable to go to if you want to bring people to an OK restaurant or have a gathering/reunion. Customer service is ka-boom! Very good indeed! Foods arrived very fast, and there shouldn’t be a problem if you wanted to call a waiter (plenty of them watching over you!). Oh and I should add, all the waiters and chefs are men. (ehem ehem cuci mata sikit la..jk! :P)

As for the price, it’s a bit high in comparison with other restaurants. Mainly because they specialize in Western foods such as steak, lamb chop, pasta, etc. Even so, they do have traditional dishes as well like fried rice, fried kuey teow and so on. Recommended dishes would be Nasi Goreng Tok Mak, Spaghetti Alfredo and lamb chop. Do try! :)

As for me, I had grilled lamb rack with black pepper and mushroom sauce! Hehe. The serving is quite large for me! I couldn’t finish my fries because I was so full with lamb already! Mbekkk mbekkk.. so full man! Sauce was yum, but the lamb was a littttlleeeeee bit overcooked for my liking. I would have loved it if it was medium cooked. Anyways, it wasn’t so bad.

For those of you who haven’t been to Islamic Kitchen, get your car now and go there! (this is a self-voluntary promotion. I get no commissions for promoting this.)

I see sleepless nights ahead

*Britney Spears (hold it against me) playing in the background*

*whoops! changed to Quietdrive (Time after time)*

i now declare that i am super duper extreme gilaaa tired! i've been in front of my little lappie here for like the past 18 hours. since morning i tell you. i woke up this morning, had shower, ate 3 pieces of karipaps, drank some suam-suam already tea and head straight upstairs back to my room.

what did i do? what else could i have been doing? of course, writing my supposedly-finished-one-week-ago paper! sighhhh. this is what you get when you postpone and main-main bila buat kerja. eye bags and mental stress!

i have been starting doing bits of write ups for the paper since 1+ month ago. or perhaps it was 2 months already? oh well, thing is, i haven't completed it yet! and to make things even 'better', my supervisor suddenly told me that he already registered me for a Publication Workshop next Wed.

"ohh..that wasn't so bad..."

until i realized that every participant has to have 1 full paper as a requirement to attend the workshop! ahhhhh... that is soooo not good news for me. right now i just have to give all out to finish the paper. peeps, wish me luck!

now, nerd mode ON!

Kedai Makan Arabs

They have been quite popular these days you know, those Nasi Arab shops. In Bangi itself, there's more than 3 Nasi Arab shops that are up and running. I, myself is no exception from liking the foods that they offer. Those lambs, oh my, super yummmyyyy! I'll be drooling the moment I smell the aroma when I step into the restaurant.

Hummus!! (Source)

And yes, for dinner just now, my family and I went out to this one Nasi Arab shop in Bangi. I just have to order the hummus <-- my faveeee!!! But I was a bit disappointed because it was made a bit too fine. :( I would have liked it if it was a bit coarser.

Anyhow, tomorrow Mr Boss is treating the students under him lunch! yay! :) And it was decided that we'll behaving lunch also at a Nasi Arab shop, but this time in Seri Kembangan.

Wohoo I think I'll be overloaded with Arabic foods this week!

*fat mode*

*regrets eat too much*


*must go jogging tomorrow!!*
