searching the extrodinary in something ordinary

So two weeks has passed since my last post. But am i even keeping count. I am surprised that anyone even comes here anymore but hello *waves* and thanks for visiting and commenting Shirley and Yang and the others that i might not know off ke ke ke. I really think its time for me to revamp this whole blogging thing. I was juggling with the idea of starting a fresh new blog, clean slate and nicer and more organized. But then well somehow things just happens to crop up and at least 2/3 of my week will be filled with being out somewhere doing something and being home just in time to do a little reading and going to sleep and the rest i am so dead tired.

As it is to get things going, i have resorted to carrying my camera with me to work and where ever i go just so i dont miss photo taking opportunities of interesting things as well as reminding myself on what i plan on writing. But so far i haven't been taking that many pictures and i havent even posted any of them. So let me start off by showing some food picture.

Now besides the whole blog thing. I have also resoluted to go try out new food place than being boring and going to the same old place over and over again. Really trying my hardest to spice up my life where possible. So last thursday, I decided to meet suet li up for dinner in pyramid and try one of the new place that the new wing had to offer. We finally decided on this korean restaurant called che go. Its been a long long while since i had any korean food. And i was particularly thinking of kimchi fried rice or their ja jiang mien. Well didnt see any jia jiang mien or even bulgokgi but at least i saw my kimchi fried rice. The price is not too bad i guess but not by any means cheap. The fried rice taste quite nice but perhaps slightly mild for my liking. The kimchi kick was not really there. Oh well. Other than that there was only perhaps one or two more thing which i might consider trying out. So perhaps won't be going back there too eagerly any time soon.

Now I think i am still not great at this whole photo blogging thing. Laine is really getting to be a pro at it. Just look at the food pictures she take. Damn pro wei. Anyways I only managed to take a picture of my bowl of kimchi fried rice which didnt turn out that great anyways. And no picture of the shop front even. Damn fail. but practice makes perfect i guess, so i shall try taking as much as i can.

Other than that, last Saturday i met up with Suet Li again this time for shopping in the little boutiques in SS15. Even that took us about 3 hrs. So imagine shopping in pyramid. Gosh. I particularly wanted to check out cats whiskers coz it seems they have some nice collection. But maybe i didn't dig hard enough since i only ended up purchasing one top. Wanted to get this other dress which i really liked, but there wasn't a new piece and the display one was not in too great a condition. Wasted. other than that there was some shoes which i liked. But i have alr set my eyes on a pair of red shoes from vincci so i dare not splurge too much. Less i become too over indulgent in shopping. My conscience wouldn't allow that. That and i really should be getting my essentials 1st. Coz i am hopelessly lacking in a nice casual heel, a casual flats and a nice mini tote bag. So it would be crazy and senseless to splurge on indulgence before i got those.

Besides the top i got myself a jacket to wear at work to look smart and stay warm. Total damage was about rm100 not too bad. But the top was slightly steep for rm 50 since its quite simple. But this is what happen when i let the crazy side get the better of me. I just wanted to buy something that day, anything.

And while we were shopping we stumbled across this newly opened dessert shop which sell ice cream top with fresh fruit. The picture for the strawberry ice cream just totally caught our attention. So we had to have it. Like who can resist mounds of strawberries. Well the price was perhaps slightly high though. rm 10 per serving. But we shared so i guess its still ok. Not too bad. I would want to go back to try their mango version. Only managed to capture this one image before we continued endulging. I almost forgot to take the picture. And you can see from the indented ice cream that i have alr started eating ke ke ke.

Things to take note; stuffs that potentially screws up KTM schedules - nothing in particular! they are able to screw it up all by themselves. But on top of that, things get pretty ugly when A. It is thunderstorming like hell and B. There is some stupid PC fair shit which i have to endure twice a yr, not to forget other stupid fairs which might attract tons of ppl to KLCC. Then the shit totally hits the fan. Because not only does the delay cause 2 groups of ppl (one waiting for the earlier train and one waiting for the supposedly later train to come) to be stuffed into one train. The ppl from the PC fair also joins in the fun.

So today i was waiting for the 6.17 train and due to probably one delayed train previously and the PC fair ppl it was too stuffed to board. Then they decided to cancel one train which causes the next train to only leave the first station in 20 minutes time. So 20 minutes on top of traveling time probably means 35 - 40 minutes of wait. I decided to go sit in mcdonalds and have my nuggets which i was craving for to see if i can perhaps wait for the crowd to clear. When i got back, the condition was even worst than before. And even when the train arrived and ferried some ppl away there was so many ppl left behind that there was barely any standing space on the platform. So i had this bright idea that perhaps i could take the lrt to kelana jaya and take the bus home. Anything is better than waiting not knowing when the next train will come and if the damn crowd will clear. ( pretty obvious it wouldn't clear till the next train or two or even more). Well everything was smooth sailing, the train was decently filled and at one point i even got to sit. Until i reached kelana jaya and had to wait for the bus for almost an hour. And so guess what time i finally reached home since leaving the office at 530. The answer is probably, i would have alr reached penang liao.

I guess that's malaysian public transport for you. Anyhow die. I do realize i have been blogging more on public transport than anything since i started work. I might as well just open a new blog dedicated to stupid stuffs that happen taking them. But then again who would want to read such boring stuffs. I am sure ppl who take them sure won't want to.

Anyways I think the way this blogs run somehow mirrors my life. Sometimes days just flies by like a blank slate. And nothing gets recorded. Before i know it i am already 2 weeks ahead. Life has been eventful yet mundane at the same time. Then again being a working adult, well work is work. I only wish work was more of an adventure. At least i have brought my non-work life out of the doldrums a little. Been going through some bouts of doubts and revelation about life and work. Yet I can't say i have come to a conclusion. I hate it that when you finally thought you have come to a plateau and gotten comfortable and at peace with who you are that you are suddenly forced to evaluate that comfort. But cest la vie, although having found that comfort also means i am more in a "fuck u if you don't like who i am" kind of mind set and then turns back to ponder if that is confidence or just delusional.
