A rather late post in the beginning of 2009

Well, I am back in Kuala Lumpur again, going to start a new semester soon. *sigh*... I have only left Sibu for 2 days and I am already homesick. I guess I can never get used to be away from home. Its my comfort zone, sadly to say.. So need to find something to distract me from the yearning of flying home. Well, sorry for hiatus since new year. Didn't really have time to blog since I was hanging out with my "sis" Louisa. Won't be seeing her for another year since she is going back to Melbourne to study.

Welcoming the New Year this Year was very simple. Had steamboat with my family and with Sgt. Kong (dad's friend) and his family at King Yung Seafood near Civic centre. Well, just to let you know, this is one of the best place to go for steamboat in Sibu.

Though many will think that "Syabu Syabu" is good, this place is much better. It is not just about the freshness of the seafood, the portion, the broth but the price is unbelievably cheap. Yes, for a normal steamboat without the giant prawns and crabs, it only costs around RM30 for 12 people. Cheap right? If you are in town, I suggest you go there and try. If you want, wait for me to go back to Sibu then we go enjoy together. I will teach you the Japanese way of eating steamboat. And its really enjoyable. Because while you wait for the soup to cook, you can enjoy each other's company.

And instead of the normal induction cooker pots as we can see in many modern restaurants, this one still uses the traditional steamboat pot using gas and fire.

The guy in the middle is the chef and the owner of King Yung Seafood. Somehow, all the chefs that I know are all so skinny.

Sorry, I didn't take any pictures of the food. I was too busy indulging in the sweet sweet soup... MMmmmmm~~~~

After dinner, we went to YMCA to chit chat till 1145 p.m. then we headed to town to see the 5 minutes firework display.. It was a sad sight. 5 minutes only... Oh well, its always better during Chinese New Year. Too bad I am not going back this year to celebrate. Sorry guys, my family wants to spend the holidays in Kuala Lumpur for this year.

Now that I am back in Kuala Lumpur. I miss my family's new puppy, Missy. Man, she is going to grow so much in the next couple of months and I am going to miss that. Hope she still will recognise me and not bite me the next time I am back in Sibu. She is just so adorable. Her puppy dog's eyes and cute little bark. That will all change in 6 months time.

Another thing I will miss are my High school mates. Yes, this holiday was filled with gatherings and just hanging out, chit chatting with each other. It is never a dull moment when Jsaper is around. Too bad Hisham is too busy helping his dad out with business. Looking back, we all changed since 3 years ago when we left SMK Methodist.. All the memories and funny stories. Now, everyone is everywhere. New paths are chosen and new life to come. But hopefully friendship will always remain.

Not forgetting, THE FOOD!!! Yes, I am sure going to miss all these Foo Chow tea snacks when I am here in K.L. The sweet cakes and biscuits are so lovely with a cup of coffee or tea in the afternoon.

Anyone interested? HAHA... Sorry, I don't really remember the names. Some are just so hard to pronounce.. Maybe some kind soul will introduce all this cakes and biscuits for me on the comment box. HAHA..

ITS THE START OF 2009!!! My final year (if I pass everything) in taking the Diploma of Architecture in Taylors University college. So, Time to kick start my engine and do my very best in this last two semesters. Wish me all the best. To all those in Sibu. I miss you guys and thanks forr keeping me company and relaxing me during my holiday back.. Hope to see you soon. Pray that time fly past fast. Till then. May God bless you all with good health and bright minds. To those with me going through the last year in Diploma. Lets study hard. And not forget to play hard too. HAHA..

For those whom I haven't wish a Happy New Year,

and oh yea, to Jess and Kiet Yang,
