month : OCTOBER 2010
October was a super havoc month for me.a lot of traveling was involved. a lot of money was spent as well *yikes* anyways, it started off with my cousin and yana's wedding. i actually drove back especially for these occasions. of course, upon my arrival i was greeted by this little girl, who wouldn't let me out of her sight.
pretty date rite? quite a popular date to tie the knot. anyways, went to my cousin's first. the solemnization was held at a small surau that morning. just a small family get-together.
2nd generation and 3rd generation
after lunch, picked up mye at the lrt station before heading off to the 2nd wedding of the day : yana & shahrul. time wasn't really on our side, so we sorta arrived late. didn't get to meet many of our friends whom later we found out attended. weddings are the place to reunite with old friends, catch up on things. fun! its the ONLY time you get to meet them! the after party was at wangsa walk mall. met up with hadi, tarqi, liza, linda and erin. lots of talking and laughing involved, not to forget the food (despite the fact that we were from a wedding, some were not satisfied with the food, hence the hunger).
the following week, i drove up to Perlis, UniMAP for some business related matters (haha. ada bunyi macam CEO tak? :P) the SEM machine at my school was down, so i had to seek for help else where. i ended up staying there till the weekend. drove the ladies mad with my presence (mad in a good way ok?) non-stop eating, non-stop talking, non-stop shopping (erk? hahahaha) plus karaoke-ing and of course, the must destination : padang besar. absolute fun! ;)
the following weekend, my family came up to Penang. we visited my uncle who got into an accident recently. then we went driving around before settling in the hotel, Vistana. the next day, we went around hunting for food. we had roti canai (which wasn't all that good), we had nasi kandar line clear (which was awesome!) and we bought roti banggali (if only we had curry then, the menu would've been complete). and they sent me off to the airport before making their way back home :) short but blissful weekend ;)
why was i sent to the airport? 3rd Regional Conference on the Natural Resources and Materials at Bayview Hotel, Langkawi. it was a 4 day trip, the conference was held for 2 whole days. this was my first time participating in a conference, as a poster presenter. i was super nervous especially when i found out that my dean was the one evaluating me! gahh! anyways, it went well. the conference was mainly on natural resources (as the name of the conference) so i couldn't really relate to it. was basically spending time eating and shopping. hee~ :P
when i got back, i had another visitor. a pregnant mummy was on an eating-trip to Penang. we met up with them, oh what fun we had. i came back with teary eyes and painful cheeks due to the non-stop laughing. we went to this famous nasi kandar stall that only opens after 10pm - Nasi Kandar Beratur, and oh boy it literally was beratur. the line was super long. i think we waited almost 30 minutes to get our food and it was quite good (i prefer Nasi Kandar Line Clear).
anyways, i think that sorta summed up my october.
next up : NOVEMBER 2010!
