Back home

In few hours time ( 1 hour 20 minutes to be exact) from this posting, i will be flying back to my second hometown i had called home for the past 3 years of my life. Ever since the offer from UiTM, Kuala Lumpur has been been a hometown to heart...Kuching is a gate away destination for me now, a place to run away from the busy and hectic life of K.L. ..nothing beats the place like Kuching :)

Im not sure when i will be going back to Kuching for good...settle down and have a life in my hometown. For now is the big world, ready to be explored and for me looking for experiences and earning a living in an unknown place.

I am happy with my life for now....should be thankful and grateful....God has been kind enough to be with me through all my campus life in K.L...until today...Amen.

P/S: Christmas is near i be home for Christmas :)

Going to Pakoh - Part 1

During the weekends i went back to my mum's longhouse in Pakoh, Sri Aman. A four hours plus drive through the Trans Borneo highway, so we took the opportunity to stop over in Sri Aman, a two hours drive from Kuching.

On the way to Sri Aman, we stopped in Lachau, a pitstop before heading towards Betong. Saw a few people crowding this small stall selling wild boar meat. It is one of those exotic yet illegal meat to be eaten and found in those areas.



This women was busy with her customers...is a luxurious business selling exotic meat around this part of town...

I was in Sri Aman for a while.. 


The Batang Lupar river @ famous for the Bujang Senang folklore and legend of the white crocodile


You can even try your hands and skills during the tidal bore where huge waves hits the river like an ocean like motion....during a certain time of the year...imagine surfing a river fully infested by crocs...


There was this shop selling some decorations and clothings of the Ibans..












They were trying out the instruments displayed...for business promotions...

I was attracted by this traditional baby carrier...




P/S: Part 2 coming right up :)

Vegas

Last night i was out with my brother and my aunt to this funfair nearby my house. as you all know funfair are all about games and prizes and you know 90% of the games are meant for you to spend a lot and not getting anything in return ( thats the rule of business for fun fairs)...prizes are attractive but winning it is sure tough luck.

Most of the time i will be looking at this particular game where the crowd and reception is sure to attract a lot of customers. I called this game "Bet a color with canned drinks". Is something like Vegas where you place your bets on a certain numbers and let the  roulette spins and land on any numbers. In this case canned drinks are used as chips and colored balls are used to pick the colors.


Firstly is to get your "chips" @ canned drinks to play..RM 1 per tin...



This is how the winning colors are selected. The first ball to reach the bottom is the winner



But before that, pick a color and place your bets...if one tin is placed, you win you get two tins in return (correct me if i am wrong about the game play) you lose the dealer takes it all.


I guess is a popular game among adults young and old.....see how many tins are being placed for bets...

p/s: I prefer throwing or some shooting games..easier...

I do

Some had said  " I DO" earlier than me...some even had kids...2 3 4 5 kids....impressively by the age of 19 or 20 years old, they had walked down the aisle, saying  " I DO" and signing off their papers and now i declared you husband and wife...and had kids..

Imagined not meeting them up for years, 5 to 10 years and suddenly telling others you are married with kids...I'm 23 and the thought of saying " I DO" lingers in my head....WHEN would THAT time will come for me...is scary seeing others had gone through that road and you are still behind.....

Monday with the Girls...

 Last Monday after checking out my office for the last time, headed down out of the ordinary to Wangsa Walk with Mahiran. We planned to met up the Aiman and Pija here. Is my first time coming to this part of Wangsa Maju..wait..been here before...BUT not to Wangsa Walk.









Part of Wangsa Walk..is a nice place tho...a suburban area..

Of course the first place was Ayam Penyet @ Smash chicken @ Mash Chicken..Pija was hungry...

She ordered the Ayam Penyet of course....


She offered me this "Roti Prata" look alike..with mayonnaise and fillings...



After that, we went to the bowling alley to try out our luck...is been a while since we last had our bowling game...a few months ago...



There was a lot of people around..students especially...



Pija trying to bowl....


I love bowling shoes..i am planning to get one someday...





I won the match..:)  thats the best part for i was never good at bowling...trust me...


After the bowling and karaoke session, we had our dinner in William's. Yaya joined us for dinner..the five of us..and so most of the time is about gossiping and exchanging news and stories during practical training...






That's Mahiran, she was with me at the same company during practical training...





Yaya somehow looks different that night :)





Pija :)





and Aiman...:)




:)

Basically if you were to ask me..all of them are my classmates in campus..YES...my classmates are made up from 99% girls and 3 boys...so you the maths..

We took the opportunity to have a go at the taukey's specialty of the day in William's. The best part about William's @ portion @ SIZE DOES MATTER...

and the price tooo :)




Drinks are sized up to feed 3 people....



We took the spaghetti with olive oil and some cream sauce



Clams with some sauce...



Fried prawn rice...the taukey told us is some special rice that would not make you fat but will make you have high cholesterol..he must be kidding at that point of time



Sea bass...this was delicious...



As you can see, the portion is big enough for 5 of us to shared around...a plate is enough for 2-3 people... and so we ended up ordering more than we could imagined....

 There goes my Monday well spent...


P/S: It was a good hang out with them.....

Two different conversation..one meaning...


"Hello Mr Adrian..you are being selected to further your studies in the master program you interviewed that day..i will email you the details for registration within this week..check your status...."

"Do you want to work here? i would met up with the management tomorrow and suggest both of you to start your career with us with this company.......a good start isn't it ? "



P/S: What's next? :) thank you God

Next Step please?

Now a few more days i be finishing up my semester 6 for my practical training..submission of report and i will bid farewell to my university...bye bye classes, bye bye assignments, bye bye lecturers etc...

Now thats the first step, after all the goodbyes and farewell..next please ?


Working life? am i ready for that....? i still wana be a student tho...fun and enjoyable...



Enjoying and studying at the same time...friends all around you...
(Dean's Award 2010)





But

Being a student ?

Pursue a higher level of education ? 

    Interesting........



Getting married is kinda cool...settle down with the one you love and have 12 kids...6 boys and 6 girls.... (thats in my dream of course :P )

With a good job and future...live happily ever after ( thats fairy tale)

That is a long term commitment and goal to achieved....

Somehow......



I kept thinking about working AROUND the world..meeting new people, going from places to places..new environment, scene, people, culture, knowledge..etc etc...i love to travel

Part of my ambition ( after reading up about peace missions in UN)

WORKING with the peace core @ United Nations


Not this kind of peace mission...even though i love the action...


I wanted this kind of peace mission..like her :)


And be like him....standing on world stage..addressing world issues....




Ahh....my dream goal long time ago....how i miss those times..now i am in a different direction of life..maybe one day i stop by...to collect the unfulfilled dreams..

I guess for now....


Just sit back and enjoy my time...pray and do my best let God be my guide :)

Blue Camp

Last Saturday went on an unexpected journey back to Kampung Kuala Pajam, Beranang for a reunion for national service trainees who had undergone training in that camp for national service.Would never though after 5 years i had left the camp, i would be back here again...stirring up old good and unpleasant memories, old flames :)



The main entrance to the camp...certain things don't changed one bit....Kem Millenium Beranang...deep in a village settlement and somehow near to abandon mines...




By 4am we are up from bed...by 6am all are ready at this field for morning exercise for almost 2 hours? in the afternoon, scorching hot afternoon burning the tar field, marching practice and self defense class plus a bit of afternoon workout.......  



Obstacle course...the 12ft wall...that was torturing....


Before that stage was made of wood and wooden stilts..shaky, dangerous and at times waiting for us to be on stage...but now fully cement with tiles....me and my friends were like amazed by the stage...one trainee came up to us:


Trainee ~ Excuse me, why are you amazed by the stage?

Us ~ During our time it was made from wood and wooden stilts...shaky dangerous and no one uses the stage during our time

Trainee ~ What batch were you guys in ?

Us ~ Second Group, Second Series, 2005....

The trainee was a batch from 2009...and she looked at us....in disbelief..

Yes....5 years...:)



Every morning we would run along this road...to the file and back..no walking....we run and run...




Part of the camp...




I used to have classes here...every morning...morning class is fun for we could mix around..i remembered telling people how we Sarawakians are headhunters and we hunt heads as a sport and well trained for spells and magic...:P




That was my dormitory....block G....at the end of the blocks..facing some jungle and a big lake..

.


That was my bunk..that corner bed....before the floor has no tiles..and basically the camp was burning  hot especially during the afternoon....so most of the time...during weekends we would be at the bathroom, in the pool, dipping ourselves ( that was against the rule..we are not allowed to dip in the pool )




Those who came that day from my batch....a few made it...and this was with the new commandant of the camp




Friends all around i met...is good to meet up old friends...bringing up stories from the past especially during our time in camp....:)

P/S: Memories....those were the days...
