The day when I tried to be a hero

In one fine weekend, I have made arrangements with my sweetheart that I will be coming over on 19/10/12 until 21/10/12, mainly due to the Pre-marriage certificate that we need to take. Originally I have decided to came at Friday and spend the time with her before our 2 days of packed-schedule pre-marriage course.

I knew she was dying to see me, so do I obviously. So what I had in mind "How about if I try to give her a surprise visit which 1 day earlier than scheduled?" It sounded like a good idea which somehow suicidal as well (due to lack of sleep). Do I look I care? Nope. So let's move on with the plan :D

Thursday, I finished my previous night shift at 7.30AM as usual. Once punched out, my next destination was KL Sentral. I had to reach there before 10AM. If I failed to mention, I have bought a KTM ETS ticket which depart on tomorrow. Based on KTM rules and regulations, I'm still able to modify the date if I make the changes 24 hours before the departure date and time.

A journey that seemed to be simple as taking the free GoKL bus all the way to Pasar Seni, then hopping the Kelana Jaya Line LRT to KL Sentral, turned out to be not as so easy as I thought. My first predicament, the LRT had some signalling malfunction in one of their stations. So the LRT will move slower and stops longer. Out of all the time in the world, why it has to be on that time which I really need to use one >.<

Problems during people are rushing to work is very bad. You can expect the massive crowd gathering at the station. The first train came, which was a 2-coach train. It looks so packed like a sardine can I swear. I decided to skip the trouble of fighting my way through to that impossible tube of people. I took my chance to take an empty queue that were left by people that want to fight their way into the incoming train.

As the train took off with dozens of hopeless salary men and women which had face of imagining self to be scolded by their boss when they are late, I stayed there and getting worried as time is ticking.

After like waiting for another 20 minutes, another train came. This time it was a 4-coach LRT, which I should have enough luck to wedge in. Indeed, I was barely inside as the door was closing. Thank God for that. I headed to KL Sentral and managed to exchange my ticket on time :D

Next objective, urgent packing like there is no tomorrow haha. Since I just changed my schedule, obviously I still haven't packed. So the moment I reached home, I packed my stuff frantically. Somehow I managed to complete it all before noon, then went straight away to the commuter station and parked my car  there. At this point, my consciousness is slipping away due to lack of sleep.

The moment I stepped on the platform, a second predicament happened. There was an announcement by the KTM that there was been a technical problem at Putra station, so all train will be delayed around 30 minutes and more (the next day I found out that one of the KTM commuter train got derailed there, no one injured). At this point, I was in dismay. My ETS train were suppose to reach Ipoh by 4.16PM. If they were delayed and late, so I had to confess to my sweetheart that I'm coming over = which means no surprise element :(

Do or die, that's how I decided to move on. I safely arrived at the KL Sentral and waited, waited, and waited. As the clock ticks to 2PM, I realized that the train is still not here, which means my surprise visit is slipping farther away x_x

By the time set to 2.20PM, the train finally arrived and we all hopped in like a mob. As the ETS moved on, it stuck for a while before the Putra station as I expected. After like 10 minutes or more waiting relentlessly, the train finally moved on. Obviously I was behind schedule.

Back to the reality, I still haven't got my nap. I also told my sweetheart that I'll be waking up before 4PM. I don't want her to find out that I'm inside a train. So what I did, is to text her first, preventing her to give me a wake up call. Next, to make sure that I look busy so that she won't have the urge to call me before I reach Ipoh. I had to made up some stories about helping my dad hehe.

While I was 'busy-helping-dad' acting,  I gave her a few weird orders, like don't go back with friends, just stay there until i say so. Ermmm it was necessary for me, or else she would go back. But thanks to that, she started to had  some suspicion on me.

Whatever!  My train reached Ipoh around 4.50PM. The time is running out. I dashed as fast as I can after the door were opened, together with my big bag. I almost stumbled down as I missed my steps. I also had to buy a bit more time. So what I did, called her while I was running, telling her I'm about to reach home so that I can talk to her properly. As I were running, my breath became heavy and I was literally panting all over the phone. Although this was unexpected tactic, but it did bought some time as  she was listening and waiting.

I ran with all my might to reach in front of her office door. Honestly, I did plan for a grand and graceful appearance, but screw it hahaha. Knocked her door, then I saw the face which didn't believe which ghost had appeared in front of her ahahahaha xD Well mind you, I was running like crazytill her doorstep, so there is no way for me to make a grand and graceful entrance. All she got, is one dead-tired-out-of-breath darling ahahaha.

But I have to say, the surprise still did worked despite the predicaments that I faced. What I got, was that priceless face of her looking at me :) "Surprise sweetheart! Fancy seeing me today instead of tomorrow?" Hehe ;)

So we continue enjoying the rest of the day. I shall save the story about the pre-marriage course on the next update. For now, below are some of the foods we ate over the days I stayed there, Pancake House at Station 18 and Nasi Lemak Ayam Kampung:

Sneak Preview

Something going to happen today. Stay tuned ;)


Ayoi's Birthday Photoshoot

As I promised earlier, below will be the photo collections that taken by me during the recent photoshoot on my sweetheart's niece birthday party on 29th Semptember 2012.

The day started early since my sweetheart and I got a few things to do. We had to:
1) Serviced her car to the nearest proton service centre
2) 'Serviced' her tooth braces by visiting the dentist

Kinda arrived at her parent's house late, she was pissed with me :p Moving on, moving on.

During the car servicing, I had to let the mechanic knows about her tyres condition. This is because recently I noticed that the rear tyre will produce a "dhup" sound which is audible when driving slowly in a lonely road. It somehow made me worried due to the high possibility of tyre lump. As people might know, when a tyre has a lump, the higher its possibility to go burst while driving.

As my sweetheart is a type that likes to drive as fast as she could, this factor had me worried even more. Although during my years of driving experience, I never encounter any tyre burst while driving. But nevertheless, if anyone had seen any video related to any incident with tyre burst while driving, you will know that the accident will be a life threatening.

Anyhow, it is better safe than sorry. We head to the nearest tyre shop to her house. As I explained the situation to the mechanics, they just simply check the tyres by hand and visually. Somehow I felt like they are not serious checking on it. As I expected, they straight away declared that all tyres are not safe, let alone to try to identify which one is the real culprit. What the heck, so sloppy. So I just pretend to ask a few new tyre price while talked my way out from the shop. Huh. Nevertheless, the price of the new tyres are acceptable though..

Anyway, done with that. So time to send her back home. Initially I were suppose to go back home first since the party will start at 4pm. But... I end up staying and helping with the preparation. Frankly speaking, I already decided to do so from the beginning, that's why I bring extra clothes inside my car hehe.

My role? Pumping up the balloons! You can't have birthday party without a cake can't you? Haha. As I kept pumping the balloons, it was an odd feeling. I mean, out of random I were  actually helping casually in my in-law going-to-be house. They are a very nice bunch of people, and lively as well so to speak. All the time I was thinking "one day I gonna live with them eh" :)

The preparation was hectic.  I hurt myself on the process. Yup, one of my fingers bled due to the balloons. Although logically it sounds like not possible, but it really did. There was a small cut on my finger. I suspect it happened as I were tightening the balloons. The over-stretched rubber became somewhat sharp and eventually sliced my skin over the time. Nothing serious anyway.

Once the clock ticks to 4PM,  the party is underway! But to be greeted with a sudden thunderstorm huhu. Due to their arrangements, the BBQ station had to be placed in an open space. So rain means no BBQ. During that nick of time, I remembered that my dad had a few of big umbrellas that you can always see during night market. So I went back to my house in order to get the umbrellas. Thank God, that thing was a life saver and the party continues :D

As usual, I was trigger-happy with my camera, shooting away like there is no tomorrow. The party was good. Plenty of people. So it was busy the entire time. Below are the rest of the pictures that taken during the party:

My Birthday Eve Celebration

Yep, I just celebrated my 28th birthday a few days ago :D A year older by date, yet I felt I'm still the same old me haha.

So my sweetheart and I decided to celebrate it as usual, but at a different place. Last year we celebrated at a Korean restaurant called The Street Cafe at Petaling Jaya. This time my birthday fell on weekdays, so I have decided that we will celebrate somewhere near her workplace. So the destination was... Penang (ok, not really thaaat near) haha.

Penang is famous for one thing, it is a food heaven. Thus this trip is obviously about food, mind you.

The journey started with me hopping in the KTM ETS from Kuala Lumpur to Ipoh. This has become my favorite method of transportation to Ipoh due to its close accessibility to her workplace. It is also quite fast compared to the bus, although the bus is half cheaper.

We stopped by at MCD for the prize opening ceremony haha:

More pictures and stories after the jump!

And he is getting better...

Yup, tokwan is getting better now. He has been admitted at the Kuala Lumpur General Hospital since 5/10/12. The Dermatology doctor has given him some medications to relieve the pain and fight the bacteria.

I managed to visit him today during my lunch break. At least he is not suffering like 3 days ago. Most of his skin have dried up. Now left with a few more area waiting to dry up, especially his back and buttocks.

Insya-Allah in a few more days..

Oh, I just learned his is 78 years old this year ahaha. I have failed as a grandson xD

An update with Tokwan's health

As the picture shown above, that is the condition of his leg at the moment. I'm not too sure what it called, but I bet you can imagine based on the picture.

I'm sorry if that made some of viewers lost appetite. Grandpa now has been admitted to Kuala Lumpur General Hospital. Earlier Lam Wah Ee Hospital unable to accept him due to no expert on that field to handle his case.

Will give another update soon.

Mum heading back to hometown

A news that I don't want to hear, my only grandfather is sick again. He is being hit with a returning illness. All his skins are dissolving and falling apart. Every part of his body will develop rash and it will make him itchy all over :(

God please make him well back again, aminnn..

Now mum is heading back to hometown. Since no bus available, I had bought the train ticket for her from KL to Parit Buntar. My uncle is already there as well since last weekend. Most probably by tomorrow, they will bring him to Lam Wah Ee hospital in Penang. Let's see the development from this.

*prays hard*
