A short update: Nothing much to share about my day one in Penang. I was just staying in the hotel to rest. And only had a very simple late dinner at Sushi King in Queensbay Mall nearby. I would go for Zanmai Sushi if there's one here. 

I ordered a set meal of Salmon steak. I like this broiled Salmon in BBQ sauce with potato wedges. It served with Japanese egg custard (my all-time-favorite), miso soup, steamed rice and Yakult cultured milk drink.

And my dear only ordered Inari (sweet beancurd sushi), Salmon sushi and California Temaki.

The Salmon Sushi.

The California Temaki with Crabstick, omelette, fish roe, cucumber and mayonnaise.

As usual, we only ordered hot green tea but not any others special beverages.

That's our simple sushi dinner at Sushi King. And I sleep after took the medicine.

Good morning all. Surprisingly today I can wake up so early in the morning though it's not working day. Yupez I took 3 days leave (6th - 8th of July) to go for a short getaway. Things are going too fast and I can't stop to catch my breath. I can't find time for self care, numerous responsibilities and goals I face everyday pulled me in a zillion directions ended up I fall sick. I need to stop myself from squeezing my brain and work on the challenging lab research, at least a few days to rest and relax. 正所谓:“休息是为了走更长远的路”  :)

Depart from Shah Alam house very early in the morning and half way stopped by Bidor to eat their famous duck mee for breakfast. The dry one(干捞)served with a kon low mee and a bowl of duck in herbal soup, as shown in the photos below. Thumbs up for their good customer service. The old ah maa in the restaurant even offered me to fill up my water bottle when she sees my water left not much after I took my medicines. I felt warm :)

Duck thigh in herbal soup, I prefer drumstick. The herbal soup is sweet and the herbs taste is not strong, perfectly suits my taste buds. 

The kon low mee that comes with the duck in herbs soup, RM7, not cheap though. I won't say it is the best kon low mee in town. I didn't finish it because my bad coughing don't allow me to enjoy it.

This is the duck drumstick noodle serves in herbal soup, RM7.

Hot milo. I thought they will serve it in the antique cup instead of plastic one, not really a good practice.

After breakfast, we continue our journey to Penang. Congested traffic in Penang bridge. I don't know why, I really like the feeling of travelling on Penang Bridge. But there's heavy haze here and I can't enjoy the beautiful awesome sea view along Penang Bridge. Sigh. Reached Eastin Hotel and thought we can check in immediately. But the pretty hotel receptionist requested us to wait because all the room is still occupied and she promised to give me a call once the room is ready. Hence, I dropped by The Lounge in Eastin hotel to have a drink and online surfing net while waiting to check in. 

I like the warm and comfortable ambience of The Lounge. Look at the special decorations and lighting, I like it.

 This is the bar where u can choose from a variety or tempting treats, cocktails, mocktails, coffee or tea and other alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

I ordered myself fresh carrot juice which costs me RM13.95. 

Time passed and I been waiting for the call from the receptionist for 3 hours plus. I even finished watching a movie "Ice Kacang Puppy Love" on my laptop. I felt so tired and almost dozed off. At last I decided to foot the bill and approached the receptionist in the reception counter. I'm damn pissed off when she saw me and asked me where did I go and why I waited for so long to check in because the room is ready earlier. I then questioned her "I thought u told me and u supposed to give me a call when the room is ready?" She then speechless and passed me the room access card. I'm not going to lodge a complain or sound her because I wanna get into the room and rest. But my mood is totally spoiled. Haiiiz. Where's the hospitality, impeccable service and care? 

Till then. To be continued. Warm regards from Penang to all of you, have a pleasant day.

Went to IMU for an interesting seminar and I found this poster. It is a nice poster, I think (regardless of the content). I think most of the university and college are English-speaking campus. But why do i still hear so many students in IMU speaking mandarin and cantonese instead of English? @@

I'm not really into horror movie due to the reasons I will have all the eerie imagination by myself when I'm home alone or while I'm in the lab and the fear emotions will definitely overwhelm my mind. I do not want to have nightmares as well. But this time, I dare myself to watch a horror movie together with my colleagues. Wonders why they are so fancy about horror movies .__. They wanted to watch "INSIDIOUS" but too bad this movie is no longer showing in the cinema. Hence we go for "LADDALAND", a Thailand horror film about a family moves into a new house where they gradually begin to encounter paranormal and horror events.

"Would u STAY or MOVE OUT if u village had GHOSTS?"

We watched it in Mid Valley. What a good seat I have. Jeng jeng jeng~~ The most right seat in the last middle row. Right behind my seat is the cinema hall entrance and on my right there are two empty couple seats which we didn't manage to purchase because the seats are under repair. But the seats seems just alright. And according to my friends, normally GSC will reserve some seats for those special "guests" to watch the ghost movie. This sticks to my mind and I feel scare. I start to have imagination before the movie starts omgggg! I keep on looking at the 2 empty seats on my right, keep on feeling there's "something" else sitting there. Arrghhhhh. I almost freak out.

The kid getting into the haunted house where the murder case happened.

This is the first time I feel so hot sitting inside the cinema because I'm so tense along the movie. Sorry that I couldn't give a movie review here because I'm actually didn't watch for most of the scary part. I covered my eyes with jacket and screamed .__. Now my sore throat is getting worst and swollen. But arr according to my friends, this movie is not as good as what they expected, not really scary as well but it did brings some morale to the audience. U can go watch it and judge it. We watch this at RM12 ticket is a bit not worth it hmmm.

What do u think about this picture? It looks like a sweet family photo isn't it? But for me, it gave me the creeps and made my blood run cold after I watched this film. Yerrrrr.

Sigh, this coming October I'm going to fly to Bangkok, Thailand. But I started to feel scare because whenever I hear Thai language it reminds me of this horror movie .___.  Guess I need companion wherever I go including toilets. Next time no more horror movie.
