ipoh trip

last weekend i went to ipoh. i drove all the way there, it took me 4 hours and a half to cover about 350km i think. the road condition was ok, in fact it was the first time i took that route. besides my over-used-sampai-lunyai malaysia map, this time i looked at google map to get a clearer route. it was also because when i reached ipoh, i had to go through ipoh town to the train station to fetch hubby. you know what, google map is awesome! seriously useful, in full detailed. me like it :D. i followed the printed google map religiously and reached ipoh ktm station with no hassle at all. another driving milestones for me ;)

as i mentioned earlier, i had to go to ipoh ktm station to fetch hubby, who took an earlier train from kl to ipoh. self-note: next adventure journey, i want to take the train hehe. anyway, the reason for our trip to ipoh last weekend was to attend ellina's wedding. her wedding was on saturday, and hubby and i arrived at ipoh a day earlier. after checking-in at a local hotel nearby (bravo to hubby who booked a hotel with good, adequate room), we carried on our plan of the day. but obviously after having our lunch first hehe.

first, we went to liza's house. and again, it was the printed google map that showed us the right and precised route to her house. it was a joyful moment to be able to meet liza again, last time we met was last october, during my wedding at kuantan. it was also a pleasure to meet afya, who was in such a good mood that afternoon :).

comelnya afya :) me so broody huhu. i want a baby huhu. ni belum lagi jumpe amir, anak wirda, nnt mesti terus beg hubby to give me a baby :p

after a session of borak2 (and me kissing super-cutey afya :D - told ya i am broody haha), hubby and i went to our next plan: to go to cameron highlands. actually hubby wanted to spend our night there and he spent a lot of time searching thru internet to get a good and affordable room there. but it was a school holiday season kan, so most of the rooms were occupied and the ones left were expensive ones. takpe ye hubby, next time kite pie cameron, we plan for it properly k. it took us about an hour to reach cameron, and we reached there just in time for the pasar brinchang. we pusing sane pusing sini, bought food mainly (with my fav, jagung rebus hehe) and sayur for my in-laws (veges are so cheap there). then after about an hour, we drove back to ipoh.

our journey back to ipoh from cameron. lawakan sunset. obviously hubby did all the driving hehe

that night we spent in our hotel room and didnt go out. quality time together :D

the next day, after breakfast, again we spent it in our room. at about 11 am, we prepared ourselves for the wedding. check-out at 12 noon, and went straight to dewan cempaka sari silveritage galleria, near terminal bus medan gopeng, for ellina's reception. she was so gorgeous! she was wearing a kebaya songket bunga tabur. lawa siut kasut ko. velvet bright red hehe. and most importantly, she looked happy that day, and i knew my trip to ipoh was all worth it just to see her ear-to-ear smiling face. we only managed to say a few words, but it was all expected as it was her wedding reception afterall. i hope to be able to catch her again next week, when my semester break starts and where i will be spending most of my time with hubby at kl.

on our way to ellina's reception.

notice her red shoes? i hope she keeps that shoes hehe

overall, it was a tiring trip, and hubby was ever-so-dear to drive me back to my uni later that same afternoon, and then to take a bus right the next day back to kl. so far so good, he has been a good husband to me, and i hope i am a good wife to him also (altho i doubt it huhu). thank you hubby for accompanying me to ipoh, for me to attend my best friend's wedding.

anyway, now i'm back in my uni, trying my best to finish my report and presentation, so that i can have an early semester break. the semester break officially starts this friday, but i just done my presentation this afternoon, then hopefully by tonight i'll finish the report (already half way through) so that i can submit it tomoro, and then i'll be able to start my semester break and drove to kl on wednesday! :D HEHE

last weekend

finally i have the mood to write in this blog. no, i'm not busy, in fact i'm kinda free nowadays and my timetable is very flexible, but it was just plain laziness to type this and that. mmg malas betul haha.

ok. what has been happening lately? last weekend i went back to kl. it was a sudden trip, in fact i was only being told about the extended weekend on thursday afternoon, then tried to get a bus ticket at around 5pm (and managed to get one of the last ticket - blamed it on the school hols season) and jumped on the bus at 9.30pm that night. arrived at kl at about 6 early friday morning and my bro iwan, who is in his semester break, came and picked me up at the bus station. hubby later came to ampang before 8 and we went out for breakfast. he then off to work and i was left with my family at ampang.

nowadays my family will mostly be in kl, for various reasons. last weekend they had to attend a relative's wedding somewhere in ipoh, so my parents, iwan, jiman and his wife and children, were all in kl. and the weekend before and also the one before that, they were also in kl. i miss our kuantan house. i need to start packing my stuff there and move it to kl. but almost all weekends there will be no one in kuantan. even this coming weekend pun they all be coming to kl for some reason, i think my dad has a meeting somewhere, and jiman and his family also have their own plan. and the weekend after that, ie next weekend when i will start my 2-week semester break, there will be no one in kuantan also. my parents will be going to russia and uk starting next wednesday for a week, for abah's company annual trip to russia, and iwan will be going to kota kinabalu at almost the same time, then jiman will start his kursus at butterworth, all at the same time too. so, i dont have any choice but to drive to kl. anyway, at least now i have hubby waiting for me at kl, so actually i should not complain hihi.

ok, back to last friday, after hubby was off to work, mama, iwan and i went jalan around kl. first, ampang park. i think it was becos mama wanted to have breakfast at oldtown whitecoffee cafe there. then we went to the pavillion, which i could not remember the reason. oh yeah, we wanted to watch 'night at the museum 2' there. i thought it was a good movie, hillarious and feel-good movie, but mama did not enjoy it as much as i did. i think she prefers action movie like batman, which she said, i quote, 'best giler!'. anyway, after the movie, we went browsing the shops at pavillion, actually mostly we accompanied mama to browse thru handbag shops. she liked this one particular burberry handbag, one which i liked it too and both of us were quite surprised for this. before, most of the handbags from that brand were quite bland and boring to our choice, i myself like fendi's design very much, and mama in the past liked gucci and ferragamo. but this one particular burberry handbag is quite nice, and mama almost wanted to buy it, but then she thought that maybe there will be more choice and designs at the uk, since she's going there in less than 2 weeks time. i told her that i dont think the price will be that different between here and the uk, but they maybe have more latest designs. mama is still thinking about it. she'll be going back to kl this weekend, and with iwan as her driver, she can just go to the pavillion anytime and buy it. i hope she buys it, because it's one fine handbag, but i dont want her regret it later after finding another better design to her taste when she's in the uk.

anyway, after pavillion, we went to klcc as mama was craving for burgerking. i thought it was funny choice haha, but mama's food choice nowadays is quite funny too actually. there was one time when she said she wanted mcd's french fries and nothing else and she wants it hot haha. anyway, after burgerking, we went to isetan klcc. mama bought a nice pastel pink blouse and i bought myself a very nice lacey pale chocolate top myself. i think as i'm getting older, my taste of clothing change too. i seldomly wear baby-t anymore, before this i'm a fan of padini and seed, then later i moved to mng and zara, and now i like tops and blouses from laura ashley and british east india.

later that friday night hubby brought me back to his house at damansara damai. what did we do on saturday? we went to sg wang and low yatt to find a cover/pouch for my psp. many months ago i found this one super cute bright red pouch for psp at east coast mall kuantan. at that time i didnt have enough money to buy it, so this time i want the exact one. we spent hours in sg wang and low yatt but still i couldnt find the one that i want. pusing sane pusing sini mmg takde. hempeh betul. hubby was so patient with me, and followed me here and there. and finally, from iwan's advice, we went to ampang point and tada! i found it! exactly the one that i've always wanted! so suka hati hehe. later that night we went to pasar malam near hubby place and bought jagung rebus. me sungguh bahagia! HIHI

on sunday mama and iwan called and asked for us to meet at one utama. apparently the thing that she was searching for (dont ask what) can only be found at one utama. later in the afternoon, hubby and i went back to ampang for my brother had bought an early birthday cake for his wife and my dad (they share the same date). after makan2, and me playing with the ever-so-adorable maisarah and ever-so-cute harith, my parents, iwan, jiman and and his family were off back to kuantan. then hubby sent me to the bus station for my trip back to my uni. arrived at the uni at 6am, to start my class at 8.30pm. overall it was a tiring, yet very enjoyable trip.

and guess what? this weekend i'm off to ipoh! i want to attend ellina's wedding, the ipoh's reception is her husband's side. i didnt managed to attend her wedding 2 weeks ago because of my exams, and i felt so much guilty and sad for not being able to attend her wedding. she's the closest human being can get to me (i'm not kidding) and she means a lot to me. so this weekend i'm going to drive 350km++ to attend her wedding. hubby meanwhile is going to take a train to ipoh from kl and we are going to meet at ipoh, and i like that very much :D. and who else in ipoh? liza of course! i plan to meet her too. then on the way back hubby going to drive with me back to my uni, just to catch a bus the next day to return to kl. love you hubby! one more day for the weekend. cant wait for it to start!
