A wedding & A Funeral

A recap of hips and happenins' over the past 3 months...

June - Hong Kong
I can't deny that the nite view here is indeed amazing. Tis 'glittering' LV shop in Central was screaming 'step in! pls step in!'
How can i resist it??? The below pic was shot from above a topless bus (to be exact, it was bus no:15C)
Nope, i did not buy any LV bags, regrets!
Will i be there again, perhaps in a biz trip?

July - Feasting Month!
All thanks to the promotion, not only it covered dim sum, but lunch & dinner were also included.
We hav been visiting tis place more than often...til we can't take it anymore!
Food was pretty mediocre, but at least the place was less chaotic as in dai-pai-dong (stalls).
The meal was simple, as above, clockwise from top left (beancurd 'swimming' in thick gravy, roast duck, lettuce in oyster sauce, and ginger chicken).

Presentation: Rate 3/5, Taste: Rate 2/5.

August - A wedding & A Funeral
Nope, they were not related to the same party. It was on 2 close relatives, and it happened just one week apart! Thank God they didn't clash!

The wedding
Where: St Ignatius Church, Damansara.
When: 8 August 09.
Unfortunately i wasn't able to witness this historic event, was stuck somewhere for a team building! Anyhow, congrats to my luvly cousin sis - Melissa!

The funeral
Where: Gospel Hall, KL.
When: 15 August 09.
I thought I wouldn't mourn over her loss, but nope, I almost broke down seeing her fragile body lying in the coffin. My aunt must have suffered alot during these 2 years aft being diagnosed with colon carcinoma. Being single, she enjoyed goin around places not until she fell sick. I was indeed grateful to her for attending my convocation (sometime ago). May her soul rest in peace, amen!

My lovely fullHOUSE!

Tiara Beach Resort

Last weekend was spent at this so called beach resort. As mentioned in my previous post, the place was totally uninteresting @ all. This place isn't those typical beach resort where you'll see chalet covered within the lush greenery. In fact, the appearance itself doesn't reflect one. I would have mistaken it as a residential apartment.
Anyhow, I was well fed, with 6 meals a day! (breakfast, morning teabreak, lunch, evening teabreak, dinner and supper) Imagine how full we were! Nevertheless all those food got digested quite fast as the activities were so jam-packed and need lotsa lotsa...ENERGY.
Yepz, indeed i was left with lil' ample time for exploring around as the only leisure time we had was at nite, after 10.

What i did aft then?
As usual, like any other blogger would do, snap pics!

Water fountain in front of the main entrance
Main entrancethe stairs to no where
Dinner place - coffee house
The red carpet to welcome us, dream on! This wasn't for us.
Pedestrian walkway
This place isn't huge, but the signboard comes to aid in case u got lost!
The outdoor stage. There were performances at nite to kill ur boredom!
But, the bike shop was closed...why? why? WHY???
thought of cycling out to beach...dissappointed!
Wondering why do I end up @ tis place?
U guess!
The agendas:
*bore us with some crappy seminars.
*exhaust us with lousy outdoor activities.
My entire body aches after then, to the extent that i couldn't even lift my arm!
Convention hall lobby
Our seminar room
supper!
Plenty of leftovers as many of us were too full for supper!


My verdict:
Overall, how's the place?
If it weren't for the team building, i wouldn't have step my foot in it.

Cheapskate Studio Apartment

The cabinets, drawers, and cupboards..Do i really need that much to store my luggage???
The living area
Wooden armchair, 'balinese' style...
not too gross yet, this is the washroom, with shower next to the toilet bowl...
nite view with dim lights, and my bed @ the background...

nothing much to tell abt tis place...cuz it was way too boring...

the room was plain...the wooden chair was hard...

the only thing i can endure is the bed.
