Had a break, head to Segamat.

1) Trains
Other than being the group that gave me "drops of Jupiter", Ia juga merupakan satu sistem pengangkutan yang disediakan oleh KTM. 3 hour train ride to Segamat, SWEET!! ( can we do it again sometime, sayang?) Slow lulling motion, comforting sounds of the wheels chugging on de track. No need to drive, extra leg room, big windows, beautiful view, no armrest at the tengah. A long lepak journey. Aaaaah... blissful.

2) Kambing dan Coleslaw

Rafiqa's family sure knows how to throw a bbq. The food was superbly excellente! The coleslaw made me happy. Never knew how a coleslaw can make me happy, but THAT coleslaw sure did. Happy happy coleslaw! I blew my 'I-wanna-body-like-Natasha Hudson-diet' to smithereens. The steak was juicy, succulent - ultimate pleasure - SWEET!! No one in their sane minds would refuse that ( 3 helpings of that to be exact). And with a company of people who definitely knows how to appreciate food, aaah even better. Hungarian horntails and nimbuses alike had some secret storage compartment in their perut for more n more food. We feast, and feast we did.

3) Boybands, Rock Kapak & Divas

Ater stuffing our limitless guts, time to ROAR.... with laughter. Acara wajib - the perfect bbq activity - KARAOKE. Oh my God, perut aku mmg pecah literally tgk aksi aksi rakyat Malaysia yg SOOOOO talented. Campak je ape2 lagu frm ape2 genre or zaman, they're sure to sahut the challenge, "takpe takpe, kite cuba, kite cuba...." .Kahkahkah. Though the whole estate yg takleh tido sampai 2am bcoz of our croonings would disagree, it was a fun FUN night. (nor the below 24 age clan who couldn't get the mic out of our hands).

4) Camera! Lake! aaand goodbye
Tido lambat, bangkit awal. Apsal? Panas. Haha... letrik takde so all the karaoke kings of yesterday woke up to sambung last night's dinner. Oooooh, happy coleslaw, nice to see you..... Then to drain all the cholesterol (konon, like it helpslaa...) we went for a stroll around the lake (well not exactly around, 1/8 pon tak sampai) for some merry digital image making of naturalistic surroundings (natural lake ke? I'm not sure.) After taking enuff pictures mengalahkan top model punye portfolio, we head on back to the house to pack (food included) n go home. ( not b4 indulging in lychees n cherries n chocolates.......)

5) Fed, happy & back to the mean streets of KL.
Hmmm... I went to Segamat, not knowing what to expect. I was surprised that my makbapak let me go. The journey, the whole stay was memorable n made me happy enuff to be recharged for my days ahead. It was a much needed break and a break it definitely was.

Rafiqa & Family - Thanx for the excellent food and marvellous hospitality. Please, can I come again? (muke tak malu, hihi..)

Jumy, Udin, Najla and all the below 24 age clan - TQ for great company and moments of hilarious laughter.

KTM - for providing lovely train rides : )

Shafik - For being you, for being there, for giving me the chance to experience great experiences.

Almighty Big Guy - for letting me live another day, for joy n happiness, for rezeki. for ilmu, for family n friends. And for love. Alhamdulillah syukur.

I think I'm gonna make my blog a place to 'berangan'.

So 1st session in order.... B for berangan R for reality

B - I'm with my mak, bapak and nani on our way to KLIA for our flight to China for a week of holidaying.
R - WAAAAAAA!!!!!! nape tinggalkan ina ??????

B - I'm not working tomorrow and I can go for my 2nd helping of HARRY POTTER!!!!!!! ( plus the movie is actually LIKE the book)
R- My final month as designer for Black n Brown. I still hve to work tho I'll be starting on 2nd January in KEPONG. ( god, why the hell did I put myself thru this hell???). And the movie is nuthin like the book. Dobby where art thou?

B - I'm working in an ad agency as art director and they pay me loads for my IDEAS aka 'mengarut'ing.
R - I'm going to be in publishing (layout,layout, layout). They pay me ok. ( juz in case they read this)

B - I'm DRIVING my own car. For starters Savvy okayla. It is much more keras kan? Like if I hit something ke, I'll be ok, right? maybe I shud get a volvo instead. It is the 'safest car in the world' kan? And i'm free to roam the land for food and pleasure, oops I mean leisure.
R - I hve a full license and I can't drive a kereta lembu even. and being in kepong means my social life is NIL. Buy a car? with what? I can't even afford new underwear! Not that there's anything wrong with my underwear la...

B - I'm a superhero wtith superpowers to torture and kill sex predators and offenders, paedophiles and such. My powers wud be to ************ their ***********. And seek justice for all the kids and those who hve been harmed by these assholes and shitheads.
R - I can't do anything to stop these crimes and its increasing rapidly. And I just wish they'd all die. painfully.

B - I'm so damn rich I cud hve all my family and friends and their family and my boyfriend and his family fulfill their every dreams. And still hve enuff money left to feed third world countries and end their debts and make programs so they can self sustain. And be oprah's buddy.
R - Oprah is as close to me as my tv set.

B - I could eat anything in the whole wide world that my gastronomous heart desires and not be fat.
R - I eat a little extra and "poof!" I'm ROUND. like some engorgement charm. Unlike Shafik who can eat like a Hungarian Horntail dragon and still be like a Nimbus 2000. (Broomstick, geddit?)

B - I actually look like an actual size of Brandy frm Liberty Meadows.
R - I'm Brandy at some parts but vertically, I'm more of a Frank.

B - Somebody wud pay me for reading my blog. Hey, you there!
R - Its free. While I still can't figure it out.........

B - A remake of all Harry Potter movies which does as much justice to the book as Peter Jackson to LOTTR.
R - Damn you stupid director, screenplay writer!!!!

B - I hve all the time in the world to berangan sepuas hati in this vitually virtual space.
R - I hve not.
