Ah, its been too long since I sat down and actually flipped my laptop open! Most of time I have been out since Yui has been around for about two weeks now. By the time we come back I’m already too worn out to do almost anything. Could use more eye rest than some finger exercise on the keyboard. I also recently got myself my first smartphone (can somebody ring some bells!) since I’ll be heading to Beijing and I thought I’d definitely need a handier chatting machine to stay in touch with my family.
So here’s just a collection of what I’ve been doing. There haven’t been much photos because we didn’t really go to any tourist-y place. I just took her around here and there, meeting up with all my friends – and also probably what she would have loved to do as compared to sightseeing. Meh.
The first day she landed we suddenly caught news that there were tickets to the Golden Disk Awards (what did I tell you about me having insane luck. Grateful as always!). Both of us were quite bumped because going to the awards would have really meant something but tickets were too pricy to attend. Moreover the event is located really far from KL so I told myself and Yui that it would have been impossible to attend. Usually if we actually do get tickets, it always probably a few days before the event. This one was just less than 24 hours away from the event and then we were told that we had free tickets – for the ROCK PIT. Thank you, Hananim!
We went for both days, and was extremely exhausted from all the hype on Day 1. We were cheering and screaming and jumping from the crowd when they announced New Rising Star. Yui and I both shot glances and was like “Shit! This is really happening!”. When they performed she had goosebumps all over her hands. How did that become this?
So here are some photos from the event. Mostly taken from my phone – I think the quality is really quite impressive!
Lost quite an amount of weight at the end of the event because I didn’t eat for two days. My tummy was washboard flat but for some strange reason I felt very healthy. Probably my glutton insides needed a break. I left the the restaurant leaving my plate full. It was so jelak – I ordered the wrong thing. But having a scoop of that made me lose my appetite for the rest of the day.
I’ve never been to the Sepang F1 Circuit before, whatmore stand on the tracks! Extravagant feeling!
Ginny was the one who got us tickets. So she invited a few of her friends too. I’m so bad with remembering names!
Borrowed this from one of the fans haha!
We also met up with my Korean Language Jamae’s (Korean for sisters) and our beloved Korean teacher Gloria. She’s opening up a class for Beginners and there MAY be a slight chance for Intermediate. However, if you want to contact her do drop me an email or such. Places are limited as she’s giving private group tuition. Her classes are extremely good and would definitely be a great course if you want to take up Korean. Under her wings, my classmates and I could speak in more or less a year. A conversation of any kind. But she also gave a disclaimer that our class is actually her most successful class because everybody were serious learners. So she only takes serious learners!
Went to my favorite karaoke place CEO before we met up with the rest!
Also met up with Andy who bought me the Reply 1997 novel from Seoul! So lucky to have caught him on time just before he came back. The novel sold out on the day it first got released.
Guess who is a Mama now? My roommate when we were in Seoul!
My teacher thinks we are all cursed with the #ForeverSingle spell under her coaching.
Really a good dinner here. Homemade Korean food. Yums!
Then a few days later, I took her to the Twin Towers. The last time I went there, I don’t remember having to pay – but that was ages ago. Now every Malaysian entry would cost RM 25 to visit two different levels of the tower. One would be the bridge, and the other would be Level 86 – which is almost at the tip of the building. Foreigners gotta pay RM 80 though.
Funny thing was the officer asked me for my passport and Yui for her Kad Pengenalan (local identity card). Mindboggling because I spoke Malay. I’ll take that as a compliment thank you! But on the other hand, the Japanese tourist was rather offended teehee.
They got to check your bags as usual before you enter.
This is an upgrade! They had hologram introduction clips. Jacoon me was so impressed by it I kept playing with the light waves.
I’ve been on the bridge a couple of times so this is what I found myself doing. I was looking forward to getting to the top!
And I did! We were so high up. It felt so strange to look at that round tip on top of the Twin Towers so up close So much huger than I thought it was. Now if only it was a cloudy day then we would be above the clouds.
View from the 86th floor. Everything is so mini. I wonder how God feels.
They had a piano white model of the towers. So beautiful! If our towers were all white…
Chan photo of Ginny and I but its the only photo of three of us with the towers. #touristmode
Where she belongs.
Here’s a video from that day, also shot with my phone. Please watch in 720 at least! It shoots better quality video than my camera. /facepalm
For dinner that day we went to a Korean Chinese restaurant in Ampang to have my long craved for jajangmyun. I used to call for deliveries all the time in Seoul so I really missed this one. Did you know the singles gather and eat this on Valentines Day in Korea? Not everybody practices it but its a tradition!
Then just yesterday I had a short meet up with the Breakfast Cats. It’s been two months since we came together (well, almost) so it was just a simple get together. This group always keeps me happy!
Wendy brought her cool fisheye & macro gadget. Very nice to play with!
Then we got scouted at Bukit Bintang to become temporary Uniqlo models. Now that’s the beginning of our supermodel journey. As of now I am typing from Tyra Bank’s office in the Unite………
Okay. See you soon!
