Badminton, Club & a Turtle?

A few weekends ago my hubby and I were at the Melaka Sports Club for the inter-factory games. It was a pretty hot afternoon. They had all sorts of sports; badminton, netball, soccer, etc... it lasted till the evening where we had dinner there too! On the way to our car (the whole area was just by the beach facing the Melaka Straits), we saw a HUGE Turtle being chased by the guard at the guard house towards the sea. He didn't want that turtle to get hurt, neither it's eggs to be taken away. We were running our way there to see a live turtle for the first time in our lives. An interesting experience all the way :)

My Latest Trip

My latest trip was to Kuching then Langkawi and Alor Setar... What a trip...

It all began on 1st - 4th March 2007, when we went back for a very short holiday before the Chinese New Year ended. Had a dinner at Li Garden that sucked (the service and food weren't that good that night and lotsa wrong orders). The trip consisted of 1 1/2 hours taxi to LCCT and back, and 1h 40 min of flight to and fro from LCCT to Kuching.

On 5th March 2007, I had to immediately fly to Langkawi, of which AirAsia cancelled my flight and pushed me to a slightly later flight. I spent 3 days and 2 nights at Langkawi and stayed in Aseania Resort. Not a good choice as the breakfast only had 4 gleaming buffet warmer trays (rice/ noodle, sausage, baked beans, bread pudding or some kind of kuih) apart from the usual cereal, porridge, eggs - cooked any style, and bread. Oh... and it was the first time I sat on a motorcycle (as a passanger mind you) :P I was dealing with the client until it almost reached my checkout time at the hotel. So one of the staff, Siti, was kind enough to offer me a ride. Btw, I had to walk to work daily as it's about 5 mins walk +- from the hotel to the client site.

On 7th March 2007, I took an express boat over to Kuala Kedah and fetched by the client (this time it's a Nissan Sentra) and checked into Sentosa Regency Hotel. Pretty old hotel, cheaper than Aseania but had better breakfast and even has Internet access in the room (bring your own network cable or you'll have to pay for the cable rental) and has newspaper "of your choice" to be sent to you every morning.

Finally, returned home on the only morning flight (one morning flight every day). That afternoon I had to work (darn).

Anyhoo, that's about it for my long trip. :)

Alor Setar - Part II

Okay okay... so I wasn't really able to keep my word on having to put up Part II so soon... anyway I was there for 3 full days working 12 hours straight (according to their office hours - since their branches are in shopping malls). Apparently that kind wore me down pretty much. I felt like a jelly by the time I reached home... How I missed the bed until I reached Melaka... Unfortunately, I still had to work the extra half day in office after I reached Melaka... so it's like TONS of emails rolling in + bugs/ issues to solve + compiling the stuff from the trip + trying to get some sleep...

Anyway now that's over,... We're overall doing pretty well here so far... my husband is a Service Delivery Manager... somewhat an Operations Manager for his company for the entire branch... it's got him pretty worked up... seeing him tired daily and now he's getting sick... good thing he went to the doctor this morning... hope he gets well soon so that I can get to go to KL this weekend for some CNY shopping... and BAK KUA!!! :)

My Weekend...

There actually wasn't much to this weekend, just that my parents came over since they wanted to make their USA visa since they'll be visiting some friends and attending a wedding there early next year. They spent Friday and Saturday night at our place in Melaka... and had tons of FOODDDD :) Dad now "complains" that he's been overly fed for Saturday and Sunday evening's dinner.

We had a "high cholesterol" weekend. Seafood on Saturday at the Portugese village and some "thong shui" sweet delicacies in Melaka and Japanese Buffet at Jogoya (Star Hill) on Sunday evening. That's the best and biggest Japanese buffet that I've ever been and something that I've never imagined. We were not even able to try out everything in just one "shot"! The mouth watering oysters, Alaskan crabs, prawns... OMG!!!

Parents stayed at Micasa Hotel & Apartments. Nice nice place... a flip of their Room Service food rates... O_o nothing below RM30 for food and nothing below RM15 for dessert!!! Lucky them getting a corporate rate! :) Else I'd reckon it'll "cost a bomb"!

Anyway, I'm back to work now... will post some pics up in the near future... *if I remember*...
