I'm Back in Geneva...

So soon? No..not soon enough! Perhaps it would be different if I had gone back with the rest of the gang...As it was, Malaysia wasn't all that exciting as I was alone, missing Soraya terribly! Ye lah..for the past 2 years the gang were hardly apart as Mummy never had to go outstation.


I came back yesterday..received by hugs at Geneva airport! Yay! Pegi 2 bag..balik 3 bags!! Full of food and VCDs! And i bought a whole load of magazines in Heathrow. So, everybody got something..most magazines were read and half the junk food eaten by the end of yesterday!!


So...what happened in Malaysia? Quite a bit, actually and i'll tell them as I remember them, OK...Before that, superwomanwannabe and Mr, apologies coz tak meet up with you guys...was thinking there'll be plenty of time (really?) to meet once we all balik for good nanti, K...but Jab..thanks for the call!


1. PTK...

The course was alright, I guess...except for the exam bit! Am too old to be mugging for exams!! Mujur ada Anoi and Mabel who shared everything they know with me so, was able to answer 4 questions reasonably well (thats my own assessment...the examiners' assessments belum tentu!). We needed to answer 5 question so my fifth answer was done in about 10 minutes with the kind help of Ros**, who showed me where to look for the answer! So..if I pass, I would have to belanja these people!

The 2nd part..the public speaking bit..turned out to be fun! A bit nerve racking when your turn comes but it was good fun to see other people trying to attract the panel's attention! They boys were very creative, one even started singing a song when trying to convey the feelings of Nurin Jazlin's parents (the title of his speech was "Nurin"). One brought all kinds of gadgets...plastic bags..wrappers..to illustrate pollution of all kinds...heard he got top marks! The ladies were more conservative...biasa laaaa...maintain giteww!
So...lets hope for the best. Pray that I will get enough marks to pass the damn thing! BTW, here's me during one of the public speaking segment! Cam real jer, ek!




2. Jalan-jalan cari makan...

Ate quite a bit...hehe...but the most memorable meal was the one Muzi and I had in Rebung...restaurant co-owned by our astronaut and this Chef Ismail. We went for lunch and they served buffet....sooooo much lauk!! and there was also mee soto..laksa...lemang...goreng pisang...few desserts...all served fresh and very tasty. I was also impressed that there seems to be personal service provided...i saw Chef Ismail busily greeting customers as they enter, explaining food to some touristy looking customers and his staff helps to the extent of stopping taxis in the street for those who need them! Good, eh? Am defintiely going back there with the gang! Here's some pixes..of the food and me with Chef Ismail himself! Didn't i tell you about personal service....




Same cannot be said for Kelab Tasik Putrajaya and the Roadhouse Grill..both I visited for old times' sake. Food was not the same...not as good as before! Menyesal pergi as they were not cheap! But whilst in Kelab Tasik Putrajaya, i played tourist and took pictures of this beautiful mosque...sorry its not very clear..pakai camera handphone jer...



The times when I ate alone..i had fried chicken...KFC and from A&W...those were as good as they ever were!! Very nice...


Oh..I must mention the Linda Onn's restaurant..been reading quite a bit about it in MrManager's blog and finally had a chance to drop by on the last morning I was in Ampang. When I first got there, it has not opened...(unlike in Geneva, shops in Malaysia opens late and closes late) so I went into the Indian shop next to it and had 2 ghee thosai! Those are gooooddd...when LO's (its officially called My Mom's Chicken Rice Shop, i think!) were opened, I went and ordered the mee rebus to take away...It was good! Well done, LO!


OK..this is part 1. Will try and post some pixes too. Later, dudes and dudettes!!
