Romantic Place in Tanjung Bungah

I hope you guys have noticed the minor changes that I have made to my blog. Hopefully it gives a new fresh look! If not damn! What the hell was i doing the entire weeekend??Anyway...

Yesterday, I went out with a friend to a pretty decent romantic place in tanjung bungah.

The kind of place with flowing water much like a waterfall that makes it difficult for anyone to look outside from inside the restaurant even if a Ferrari was parked outisde. Hence, for people who always fails in their attempt to impress a girl on the first date should come to such a place as she has no other choice but to continue concentrating on you.

Its the kind of place that you could bring a girl, wait not any girl, a waitress that earns RM5 below an hour to impress her and still not burn a hole in your pocket.

And when i say impress, I mean going in for the kill, much like a hunter in the Sahara desert.

If the food had not impressed her enough (i mean hell, she would have to work hours before even having such a meal and not having any savings left), the environment would.

This is the very important part to remember before going to such a place and thinking you could go in for the kill. It is important that she is a waitress, not a model or mid to upper class women ok!! Waitresses are more likely to be impressed with such meals rather than a model who enjoys such luxuries most of the time, thus only impressions like closing an entire retail shoe outlet for her to only shop would work.

This would include Malaysian Dream Girls ok. Girls who dreams as well are not included as I wouldn't put it as a romantic place that you'd find fantasy romance.

Sadly, I went there with a guy friend and we were not there for the dinner, but for drinks just to check the place out.

Being single guys, we can only think of all the wonderful places we could bring our future mates which never materializes. So, date people like us if you wanna find out more about this place. Imagination simply builds with age but our confidence level drops as well.

I would like to continue further guys but I need to get back to work. To be continued...Until then...

THANK YOU FOR READING THIS ENTIRE CRAP! Getting my blog going for you dear readers. hopefully I have not gotten rusty! I could not take any pictures for you all to see sadly. However if you'd like to know more / interested, i'm sure somewhere between the lines of what i have just said would mean something.

Celebrated Earth Hour already

Note: This is a post for my friends who were with me from the start of Earth Hour till the end two nights ago on 15th March 2009 as they should understand.

While some people will be celebrating Earth Hour in a weeks time (28th March), I on the other hand celebrated it early (which I will share it with you soon).

For those of you who don't know, Earth Hour is for people who believes that one hour of saving electricity would actually save the world from destruction

and hoping that our children will still be able to breathe fresh natural air like normal human beings instead of buying oxygen.

Forget about Water!

Saving water has nothing to do with saving Earth or Earth Hour celebration for that matter! Because Earth will drastically change within that one hour non-usage of electricity. So use water during Earth Hour if you have nothing to do in that one hour of boringness. Maybe hold a songkran festival or something.

Now, celebrating Earth Hour is not really an easy task.

I mean hell, that means no TV.

That means no computer (meaning don't leave it on to download movies through torrents, yeah YOU!!)

And well, most importantly, you should be turning off your lights. That means your surrounding should be totally dark and not even a trace of light should be seen anywhere around you and if you do see somebody's lights on, make sure you smash those lights off for him in the most appealing way.

So basically, Earth Hour is most felt when everywhere is pitch darkness.

There is just so much that could possibly happen within that one hour. Nothing too dangerous.

So two nights ago during the wee hours of the morning, when nobody could see me, I voluntarily decided to celebrate Earth Hour. Celebrating it for the first time, I never knew how dark things became.

I lost contact with my friends who were having drinks in gurney drive by the way.

I could not get to my car.

I could not get to my house.

I did not know somebody called me.

I did not know where I was, so I lied on the floor.

So, things did not seem too good. Celebrating Earth Hour at such a time was not easy. Things became blank to me because I wasn't used to the pitch darkness.

Before I knew it, I woke up the very next day to find that, celebrating Earth Hour for one FREAKING hour really cost me alot.

I lost my glasses. (Had to buy another pair)

I lost one whole working day. (Which means cut in pay)

I had to postpone my driving to KL (Had to drive at night, only to arrive in KL at 2am)

My white shirt is pretty much painted with red color.

Strange smell in my living room.

And last but not least, the Coat that I wore to celebrate Earth Hour was somehow mysteriously switched with another friends one.

So, guys, I dont' know about you, but i'm definitely not going to celebrate Earth Hour next time.

Here's a food for thought though, don't drink too much wine.

Using the old highway to Ipoh from KL

It seems like I never got back from my last trip back to Penang.

Luckilly, i did.

Because, two weeks ago, instead of using the express highway that I normally use to travel in-between Penang and KL just like any Ferrari's or Bugatti's would ONLY use,

I decided to travel on an alternative route.

That's right guys, there is an alternative route. An Old Road formally used before the new express highway was built.

Now I would have never seen the day when I would branch off from the highway to visit places called Bedong, or Kepong, or Gopah or *gosh I'm trying really hard to remember*, thinking that I would somehow get lost into the wilderness and surrounded by mystical cannibalistic creatures

just like the movie Wrong Turn.

I mean hell, everytime I travel down to KL, I just ignore all these little town that branches off from the highway. I guess if there were any time in this life time of mine that I would check out these places, I chose that day.

So, Bedong is a nice place. (just forget that places like KL even exist and set yourself back by 20 years)

You can say that recession or no recession, these people are barely efffected. I mean hell, they don't even know what the hell is going on in the world I suppose.

They sell plants with special breeds hoping for some dumb city-folk to buy them and grow it in their expensive landscaped garden.

They are well known for their Jambu.(well really too bad if you don't eat jambu because that's the only real thing you see being sold everywhere by the road side.)

You can say that, girls here are less demanding and definitely not branded but don't expect anything close to a Michelle Yeoh since the town of Ipoh is relatively near.

There are no fancy restaurants for you to go too, and so I headed on to a famous coffee-shop here.

Now, I have been told before arriving here that the coffee-shop

was famous for its wan tan mee which comes together with a bowl of delicious wan tan soup.

Just as I thought that, things here would be rather cheap in a small town called Bedong, my meal was not cheap at all. A plate of wan tan mee was RM 5.40. Could you believe it for a small town called BEDONG??I mean gosh, I was expecting like RM2 or something.

and just when my plate of mee came, my drink came costing me RM1.60.RM 1.60!!

I mean whats wrong with this place. They can't expect KL pricing in a small measly town which looked like it will be abandoned anytime soon as the young would no longer choose to stay there. A poor man like myself came here for a decent and affordable meal not get slaughtered. Things should be cheaper with all the economic problems going around the world. Not expensive!!

After being done with licking up the entire plate to make sure its all worth the money I paid for, I left Bedong by using the old highway.

Now the difference between the old highway and the new highway is that the road is narrow and lots of bends here and there.

Lots of things to see and its just amazing with a little amount of time before you bump into another god-foresaken town called Kepong.

And then, you end up in another god-foresaken city called Gopah. And then, Simpang Pulai.

And then you just get all sick about the little adventure with houses that is simply similar to going down Penang Road and simply branch back out to the new express highway.

One of the nicest things though is knowing what all this places look like along the way but the BESTEST AND NICEST THING OF ALL,

You pay less toll. I don't really remember how much, but its just enough to go back to Bedong and buy yourself another wan tan noodle.
