幸福车站



幸福车站。。。

这首歌很有意思。。。每个人都想找个自己的另一半。。。我也不却。。。一直在寻找自己的幸福。。。自己的那一男人。。。自己未来的家。。。

我到今天,停留在很多很多车站了。。。但是一个一个都不是我的幸福。。。

能带给我快乐的,却不是我要的男生。。。
是我要的男生,却给不到我幸福。。。
能给到我一个房子的,却给不到我一个家。。。

最近我坐上一驾车。。。不是个白马王子的车。。。
只是一驾很普遍的车。坐的很舒服,很快乐。。。

这是否是我的幸福吗?我也不敢大声的说。只能一天一天往前看。

心里带着一个希望。。。

希望我和他能够一起走到所说的幸福车站。。。


也是我最后一个车站。。。

Edmund's Farewell Dinner

One by one grew up. One by one pursue their dreams. One by one leave their hometown. One by one to be missed. Ah! It's time for my brother of different mother leave his comfort zone and face the world outside. 

Edmund, friend since I-don't-know-when. Brother since forever. Someone who is always there. Someone who never fought with me. A quiet person who knows how to be a great company. Someone who finally step up and fight for his dream. To help the needy. Yes that's who he is. Always putting others before himself. 

This post is so late. We organized a farewell dinner for him on New Year's day and today is already the 30th of January. I've been so lazy and busy with CNY preparations and lots of other stuff. Yes I'm lazy to blog nowadays. I'd broke up with the internet world. Spending more of my time outdoor than just sitting in front of my lovely desktop for the whole day. 

Gathering was at Kado.

The familiar faces around.

This was what happened when the anti-socials decided to stick their face to their phones. We found a new toy!

Group photo with part of our family. Sadly not everyone was available that night for the dinner. It's been so long since we gather guys. Really....

Another group photo without me and with the Supermens!

How can I ever let you go before taking a photo right? =)

People said "Friends come and go, but only true friends leave footprints in your heart". But my dear Mund, you're not just a friend. You do not come and go. You do not leave footprints in my heart. You're my long-lost brother. A brother whom I feel most comfortable hanging around with. Our friendship goes beyond what words can describe friendship.

Ah! I'm so gonna miss you much! Remember that I am always here even though we're an ocean apart now. That's what phones are for. Haha! Do work hard, save up and get a house over there. Then I can fly over to visit you as often as I want =)

Heart to heart forever!

Chinese New Year @ The Raintree Restaurant BCCK

Chinese New Year is JUST NEXT WEEK!!!!! Time flies a lot these days right? And time is still flying. So are you flying too? Have you prepared everything? Food? Snacks? Drinks? Clothes? Shoes? Decors? Or are you the true-Malaysian whereby you're still doing your last minute shopping and still going around town searching high and low for places to dine for Reunion Dinner?

Ah! I'm here to bring you good news! I too went searching for places to dine for the whole week of Chinese New Year. Um....ok I lied. I'm helping all of you to do your homework. Oh don't thank me. Let's just hear my story and view my photos before you thank me alright? =)

Presenting to you, awesome food from The Raintree Restaurant located at BCCK. This time I'm not gonna force you guys to sit the traditional round table but instead, we're gonna go the buffet style. Oh yeah! 

How much you ask? It's ONLY RM68 nett per person and as for children age from 5-12 years, it's RM34 nett per person. Now name me another place in town where you can get awesome food at this price. Hold on a sec! You don't wanna call for reservation without knowing what's on the menu right?

Be ready for mouth-watering food. Make sure you have tissue packets with you right now =D

Chinese Popiah with Condiments & Sauce. 

Note: The sauce is a special mixture created by BCCK's Chinese Chef, Chef Peter Ngu, who used to work at Empress Cruise Ship!!! That sauce is definitely something that made me wanting to bring it back for my mom! Yes it is that nice!

Sze Chuan Hot & Sour Seafood Soup.

It is indeed hot and sour. This dish is definitely the huge kick-start for dinner. Surely enhanced my appetite that night. Simply hunger for more!

The main dishes:
Baked Snapper Fish with Lemon Butter Sauce
Home made Beancurd & Minced Chicken
Braised Three Mushroom with Garden Green Vege
Steamed Chicken with Dried Golden Mushroom

Want me to rate the food for you? I think I'll rate every dish 9 out of 10. It's just way too delicious to be described in words! I fell in love with the beancurd & minced chicken! I was sulking the whole night cos the portion is so little =( I want more!!! Man I can't wait to dine there! Grrrrrrrr!!!

Dessert time! I love desserts~ Oh what's a perfect dinner without finishing it with fresh fruits and sweet cakes right?

This piece of chocolate cake made everyone fell head over heels! Simply unbelievably AWESOME!!! 

Cheesecake with coconut on the bottom.

Chilled Longan & Sea Coconut. 

*Urp!* Oops excuse me =D

Is that it? Oh of course not! How can I disappoint you all with only those dishes right? They actually have different menu for each week! No no no I'm not gonna list down all the dishes. You're gonna go there and tell me what dish do they have and which one is your favourite. Teeheehee~

Think I'm missing something?

What?

Ohhhhhhhh!!!!!!

YEE SANG!!!!!!!!

People always say, "Save the best for last". So yes I'm saving the best for last!

BCCK The Raintree Restaurant's Prosperity Yee Sang!!! 

Come let's read a little facts about Yee Sang.

From Google: Yee Sang is a Teochew style raw-fish salad. Yee Sang is considered a symbol of abundance, prosperity and vigor. While everyone thought that Yee Sang is from China, it is actually created and popularised in SINGAPORE!!! Who would have thought about that! And how do you eat it? Everyone gotta stand up surrounding the Yee Sang and toss it using chopsticks. It is believed that the height of the toss reflects the height of the diner's growth in fortunes, thus diners are expected to toss enthusiastically.

Something new for you to learn eh? =)

Raw salmon for Yee Sang!

The nice waitress helped us prepare our Yee Sang while we sat and watched. It's my first time watching how Yee Sang is being prepared.

Lots of condiments and sauces to be added.

And then we start to toss! The higher the better the huat'er!!!

The aftermath =D

So are you still hesitating of where to dine? Oh come on! If my photos can't convince you, then why don't you head over to The Raintree Restaurant this weekend and show me your photo skill!

Starting from January 22 to February 6, 2012!!! ONLY RM68!!!!! Available from 6.30pm until 9.30pm. 

Let's feast together like the Dragons and with the Dragons and be as prosperous as the Dragons! *rawr!*

欢子 - 得到你的人却得不到你的心



Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...................................................................................

You! When I wanted you, you told me to stop. Now I stopped and moved on, you came back to me.

Months ago, you came into my life. Bringing changes. Bringing new life. Bringing happiness. Bringing laughter. You know how to tickle my soft bone. You know how to talk things into my mind. You know how to communicate with me. It's been a while since I felt that much alive. Oh you know, new stuff.

And then I started to crush. Crush hard. Tried to pulled myself back. Saying I MUST RESIST. But I can't. So I worked my way up. I pushed through locked doors. I lifted fallen logs. I tear and tore the tall grasses. And in the end, I hurt myself.

Then God's will came. He brought it to me in a very very ugly picture. It gave me a bang in my head. Real hard bang. Might even caused PHD. Permanent Head Damage. Yeah that's the way it works on me. God knows I'm stubborn and won't listen to anybody. So He decided to teach me the lesson Himself.

Soon after that, I gave up. I know it's God way of saying "It's not right" to me. I know it's just a dream. A very wonderful dream He gave to me earlier on just to have a different taste of life. Thank you, I said. No I'm not mad. I'm not pissed at Him. Though yes I was pissed at God for that ugly picture. But not for that dream.

Even if I was able to have you, I know, I will never be able to capture your heart...

I tasted. I resisted. I fought. I learnt. I grew.

So now I'm moving on. I hope you will too. I hope you can have your dream come true. Great buddy I will still be. As the song goes:

I won't hesitate no more, no more,
This is our fate, I'm yours~

Yes yours. Your great buddy. Not your woman =) You woman is her. Go ahead and pursue that dream of yours. I'm sure you can. Don't go back to the past. Live the present. And hope for the future.

You know who you are *winks*

*tones of hugs&kisses*

Good luck!

为什么相爱的人不能在一起



A song that I miss listening to. Was on this dilemma for 4 years. Throughout this whole 4 years I repeatedly asked myself, why. Why can't we be together? Why wasn't there any base for us to start? Why there wasn't even an opportunity? Not even for a split second. Why...

And then I realized. It's for the best for both of us. We were not meant to be. You and I can never be us. It's not that I've been clapping one hand but my hands are just not meant for you to hold. We've been good. We've been bad. We've had so much memories together. It's all gone for good now.

I'm now proud to say that I finally let you off the hook. I'm glad I did. After hanging on for 4 years, I know that it's not supposed to be this way. Even if I were to hold on longer, it's not gonna be. Even if that time when both of us are available, we will never be us.

So dear You, thank you for coming into my life. Thank you for teaching me so much about life and relationship and let me know what is love =) Thank you for always being there when I needed someone to talk to about everything.

I'm moving on. And so are you. We will still be friends. We will still be good. But as you and me. Not us =)

Welcome to 2012

Well hello everyone! I know I'm a week late but hey HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! A week had passed and I'm still stuck at only one post =.= Things got caught up and I got lazy. That's it. No other reasons. I'll make this a short post.

As always, I'll do a resolution every single year just to get myself motivated and go for it! Looking back, last year I told myself that I must graduate on time with the title Diploma in Accounting and needless to say, I got it! =D Happy, satisfied, excited, awesome! 

Now, I've been thinking for quite some time. What should I do this year? Should I aim for more vacation? But I already have the whole year's vacation planned out. I'm not planning to further my studies nor change my job. So really, what should my 2012 resolution be?

After much thought, I found what I want =)

Ready? 

This is gonna be different....

I really hope I can hold on to this resolution...

It's something that I never thought I would do at this age...

It's something that I want for a change for myself...

It's something that will change my life forever...

It's also something that will change someone else's life forever...

My 2012 Resolution: 
I want to settle down for someone (我要为一个人定下心)..........

Who? It's for me to know and for you to find out. Heeeee~

Let's put our hands together and work out this year, the year of the dragon *rawwwwwrrrrrrrrrrrrrr* Man I'm gonna be 24 this year. Fuh~ I know I'm young! =D But not that young anymore. I need to start working out all that I had planned and walk on a steady path. No more fooling around. Gambateh!

Yours truly,
Perpetua Angeline *signing off*

* Andrew's birthday at McD

* NYE at Kent's house

Reading all my short notes, I realized that the year 2011 isn't that bad after all. There's good times, bad times. Sour, sweet, bitter, spicy. Major stuff that happened really changed my life. For the first half of 2011, it's been quiet because I was just busying myself with studies and exams. It's the 2nd half that spinned my life 180 degrees.

Hui's words: It's not what happened to us. It's one of us stopped trying. One of us quit.

I remember those words well. And yes I actually quitted. I quitted my 3 years relationship with YL. Why? I don't wanna give you the list of excuses. It just ended. That's it.

Initially I was preparing to leave Kuching and head out to KL for a new life. Planned to leave right after CNY 2012, but worst case happened. Really, it's the worst day of my 2011 life. The news of Hui left us all, shocked me and left me sleepless for nights. He made me changed my mind. I decided to stay back in Kuching for his 3 girls. Maybe my help won't be needed now but sooner or later I'm sure my pair of extra hands can do little help here and there. A promise is a promise.

Lots of lesson had been learnt throughout the whole year. I will treasure what's left, I will take care of the present and I will prepare myself for the future. I foresee another great year ahead with my already packed schedule =) 2 confirm vacation, 3 still pending. I vow to travel more often! Life is just way too short to be wasted saving money in the bank for a future which you don't know how it looks like. You can never finish earning those money so why be stingy when you can use those money for better purpose?

Til then~
