X-rated video of tortoises????

I recorded this at the Liberation Pond of Kek Lok Si, Penang. Just what exactly do you think the tortoises were doing?




Penang Trip 2008

I visited Penang again on 26-27 Oct.


Best Food of the Trip


Satay sold next to Hau Yu Seafood Restaurant at Teluk Kumbar (Address: 84, MK9, Teluk Kumbar. Tel: 04-6491403)! I’m not exaggerating, so far it was the best satay I have ever tasted! Just not the conventional taste of satay.


Most Interesting Activity of the Trip


I did my first parasailing at Batam. This time, I parasailed with hippo!

Parasailing with hippo!


Activities available at Batu Ferringhi

Creative pan

Pan? Plate?

I really think this is a creative idea from Bangkok

A cat’s life

9am: Sleeping…

10am: Deep in slumber

12.30pm: Still at slumberland

3pm: Zzzzzzzz

5pm: Snoring…. Good life for a cat!

Me: At times, I wish I am a cat.

Hippo: Even if that means you have to sleep on the floor, eat rubbish & drink stale water? And always get crashed by cars like nobody’s business?

Me: ……

Creativity/ innovation in steamboat

Location: New Wing of 1 Utama Shopping Centre


– providing vast variety of condiments

Greedy hippo…


Our choices

Worth sharing my observation: this is actually the second “Hong Kong style” (港式) restaurant using order forms which are not environmentally friendly….

A waste of paper le….

My first ever fish spa!


So, Hippo and I paid for the fish, to feed on us!


I really think the fish like my feet more!


Before I dipped my feet in: this much of fish were with hippo


After I dipped my feet in: not much left ….


All with me now!

I spot you, creativity!

Creative job recruitment ad!

Inside the glass bottle…

“I want to walk tall, believe in myself, have the courage to ask for what I want and need, and live a life that mattered. I want to wake up in the morning with a smile on my face and know that I am loved and that I belonged. I am desperate to feel worthy and I am hungry for the opportunity to live my fullest potential.” - modified from "The Dark Side of the Light Chasers" - Debbie Ford

Under the apple tree…

"If you are not spending all of your waking life in discontent, worry, anxiety, depression, despair, or consumed by other negative states; if you are able to enjoy simple things like listening to the sound of the rain or the wind; if you can see the beauty of clouds moving across the sky or be alone at times without feeling lonely or needing the mental stimulus of entertainment; if you find yourself treating a complete stranger with heartfelt kindness without wanting anything from him or her... it means that a space has opened up, no matter how briefly, in the otherwise incessant stream of thinking that is the human mind." - A New Earth, by Eckhart Tolle

Inspiring quotes!

If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other? (God in "Evan Almighthy")
“To love another person is to see the face of God.” ― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain
Aggie: "But what about the people who hurt you? Don't you ever want to make them suffer?" Norman Babcock: "Well, yeah, but what good would that do? You think just because there's bad people that there's no good ones either? I thought the same thing for a while. But there's always someone out there for you. Somewhere." - Paranorman
“You're only here for a short visit. Don't hurry, don't worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.” by Walter Hagen
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, body totally worn out and screaming "WOOOHOOOO what a ride!" - by anonymous
When you travel, it’s not like you take a part of each place away with you; rather, it’s as if you leave a part of yourself there, like a part of you forever belongs to that place – the time, the people, and the things you saw; and over time, it gets burned deeper into your soul - by anonymous
