Firstly, here's a big fat Happy Merdeka & Selamat Hari Raya to my friends and fellow readers, whoever you may be. So for once, let's put all the differences aside and be proud of who we are. I remember hearing this on the radio the other day that people from all over the world recognize us, Malaysians not from the colour of our skin, neither do they recognize us from the cross that we wear on our necks or the scarves, but rather it's our culture, the food, festive spirit, and of course our very own Malaysian language that makes us unique, the way we are lah.

The thing I like most about our country is of course the amount of public holidays we get compared to others. Har har. So anyway, I took this opportunity to come back home and spend some time with mum and dad and of course all my loved ones back home--starting with Phoebe.
Say hello to my cute little botak, Shih Tzu. You've been dearly missed.

I always miraculously overcome feeling fatigue and lethargic the moment I see mum and dad picking me up at the airport. Looking at the familiar faces and landmarks already makes my day.

Although I didn't manage to come back for dad's birthday, I thought sending him a little gift would make his day, though I know he'd somehow be celebrating like a king already =P

The flowers and wine from Xinflorist. (that's not my handwriting by the way heheh)

I've always loved JB food better from the Bak Kut Teh to the chicken wings. First things first, get my dose of anything I can get hahahah I felt like a glutton that has been starved for days.

Fish head curry at Cedar Point in Century Garden

My favourite chicken wings! also from Cedar Point (located right behind Omega Tuition Centre)

Some genuine otak-otak, note that by genuine, I mean the ones made out of real fish meat. Not colourings.

Awesome yummy!

Then there was also some time for a girls day out with Charmaine. It was so good catching up, everytime I come back she'd go like "When was the last time I saw you girl, one year ago?!" but the fact is that I come back without fail every two months or so.

Good to know I've been missed *thick skin* =P

Got my nails done at Nails Studio at KSL mall while Charmaine did pedicure for the first time! Believe or not, even I have not tried pedicure. Manicure also once in a blue moon, what more pedicure right.

The one thing you cannot miss not having- DVD shopping.

Later that night we met up with Jun Hao, another great friend of mine for some drinks and laughter.
The party didn't stop till the next day, we continued meeting up with more friends on Merdeka eve, just last night at this pretty cool place called, the Banyan (tree) bar.

I was surprised they have a good chilling place for people to just hang out, talk and play pool. Feels good to be back.
