Chee Yong & Li Hui Wedding in Malacca

We went to Malacca over the weekend for Chee Yong & Li Hui's wedding. They are friends from hall and they've been dating for a long time, and they are finally tying the knot! :)

There were 3 cars:
1. Wee Yeh - WY, Wei Leng, and another girl
2. Ryan - Ryan, Ryan's fiancee Alice, Charles
3. Us - Laval, Min Hui, hubby and me

Car 1 and 2 have walkie talkie that can communicate if they are 200 metres away.. so funny loh.. might as well tailgate each other! And then car 1 has GPS that is so powerful, can go through all the small roads in Malacca.. lol! Actually he just anyhow drove one.. Malaca city tour!

We reached there about 2 or 3 PM, it was about 3 hours drive, surprisingly no jam at custom! YAY! When we reach Malacca, we were all really tired. Everyone was saying to meet up at 3:30 but turned out everyone was sleeping and nobody went out! I woke up at about 5:30 PM and we decided to go to the Pahlawan Mall which is opposite the hotel that we were staying, Hotel Equatorial.

They really sell lots of stuff there but because I just came back from HK and saw how cheap stuff are in HK, I didn't really feel like buying anything from there. I only noticed a donut shop hahaha.. I know I'm supposed to be on diet, but donuts.. really hard to pass.. but I shared the fats with some people.. hahahahah.. you know who you are..

Anyway, we rushed back about 6:30 PM to shower and get ready for the banquet. The place is really grand and the photos turn out really nice. Li Hui looks sooooo pretty! I like her evening gown too, it's so sexy and elegant. I feel like I wanna get married again! hahahahah ok enough bridezilla time.. I think I gave my hubby quite a hard time last time.. :p

Anyway, these are some photos from the trip and I hope more friends to get married and have kids! It's so exciting! I need to get out of my boring life :D

My Friends And I...

Met up with 2 friends just now, one of them have a 6-month old baby and another one is 4 months pregnant. My pregnant friend said she was FAT and today I saw her.. my tummy is bigger than hers!! OMG!!

This is so UNFAIR!! At least she's fat (at least that's what she thinks, to me she still looks skinny hahahah) for a reason... I really find it hard to lose weight, sometimes I think I might as well get pregnant so that I have excuse to be fat.. :(

But what to do with the baby when I go to work? After such a long time, still havent found the perfect solution to this!

Sydney and Auckland Trip

I'm so lazy to write about what happened during the trip because it was a full week and I can't remember much of the details! It was really fun, we worked a lot and also played a lot. Most importantly, we learned a lot which is useful for our job and also it's good to know our teammates better!

So I just post some Sydney photos here.. "some" is really an under-estimation..

And these are Auckland photos..

I even had chance to meet up with Siyong over the weekend! It was really good seeing her looking well and happy over there, she seems really settled over there even though she was there for less than 3 weeks! She already found a job and even bought a car! What's left is just her dream house haha.. Siyong, remember to invite me! :D

Hong Kong Trip

Finally I'm back to blogging! Was so busy recently with all the trips this month and a few gatherings that have been arranged since long time ago..

Ok so in this post, I shall talk about Google Singapore office offsite to Hong Kong. The main attraction of this whole offsite is HK Disneyland and of course the company dinner.

Our flight was so early in the morning! 7 am if I'm not wrong, that means we gotta be in the airport at 5!! Me, of course dragged my hubby out of bed and forced him to send me to the airport hehhe.. too bad we didn't even have time to have breakfast together because the United Airlines counters were so bloody inefficient! They took more than 1.5 hours to check us in! So he just sent me to airport, waited at the side, then just said good bye.. so sad right..

Anyway, when we reached HK, there was the tour guide waiting for us to take us to our hotel. We stayed at a hotel in Mongkok area, which at first I found it quite scary because Mongkok is the place they usually use to film those HK gangster movie and the place also looks a bit scary!

First day we didn't do much stuff, shopped a little bit, had mango dessert *this one is really nice and shiok!* and have company dinner that night. My colleague did a really good job arranging all this and also another colleague helped to talk to the restaurant people in Cantonese, she must have gotten us a good deal because there was really A LOT of food that day! After dinner, we went to Ladies Market which is supposedly the famous shopping area. But I don't think the stuff there is that great, and the people who sell stuff there is so rude! One of the women actually scolded my colleague in Cantonese, good thing we don't understand what she was saying!

Second day is supposed to be Disneyland day, so we were there in the morning and we finished most of the stuff within half a day so we decided to go to Lantau island because my colleague wanted to see giant Buddha. We climbed the one zillion stairs up and my legs were wobbly! I thought I was going to tumble down and die!! Once we were on top, the view was really nice :)

We went back to Disneyland after seeing giant Buddha to view their fireworks, it was REALLY nice :)

And last day we went to Google HK office and after that we did some mad rush shopping! This time round we went around Causeway Bay area but the stuff there are just like what we have in Singapore, then we went to Fa Yuan Kai or Flower Street as suggested by another colleague who used to work in HK. This one is really great, lots of stuff to buy but not much time so we had to do our shopping really fast and then ran back to office to catch the shuttle bus to airport!

Below is my photo album, there's 246 photos.. keep going.. hahahha..

Reach Singapore almost midnight and was flying to Sydney the next day.. shall talk about Sydney trip in another post.. :)

2008 Resolution Check - September

Forgot to do resolution check again cos too busy with work and other stuff..

  1. Buy a place of our own, be it new or resale, 4-room or 5-room... this was actually one of my unfulfilled 2007 resolutions.. ♥ checked ♥
  2. Be a better person, I know I've been a very impatient person, especially to my hubby, always get angry at him and even scolded him, maybe I expected him to be perfect, but I know nobody's perfect and as the crazy girl told me he has his own strong points. Thanks jess for reminding me that :) I think I should ask hubby to comment abt this lah.. dunno whether accomplished oredi or not..
  3. Lost weight!!! maybe should change it to gain weight... pass in flying colors!!
  4. Go to a new country, maybe Korea or Macau.. shdn't go to somewhere to expensive or else it will make my resolution no. 1 fail again :( ♥ checked ♥ I went to Japan airport!! HAHAHA I DON'T CARE IT'S STILL COUNTED!! Addition for this month: went to New Zealand which I never been before! :)
  5. Be better in managing my expenses.. for e.g. the 800 bucks PDA is as good as the 200 bucks one even if it's without 3G! only bought 10 lambs in NZ.. plus other stuff..
  6. Be better spiritually :) well... not good at all..
  7. Get a promotion ♥ checked ♥
  8. Get an increment ♥♥ checked twice ♥♥ found a new job yeay!
  9. Get my Singapore driving license! ♥ checked ♥
  10. Get my own set of wheels.. this is not priority but good to have.. as long as no. 1 is fulfilled =) ♥ checked ♥

I really wish I can be better spiritually seeing that I have most of my worldly goals covered. New Zealand's nature is so pretty, it made me think how great God is. Imagine how Eden was like!
