My 'Balik Kampung' Trip

I just back to the land of hell (Kuala Lumpur) hours ago, sorry to everyone for my lack of update and reply these few days. This 'Balik Kampung' trip really a mixed feeling trip for me... got happy and sad stories.

When I reach Butterworth on Friday night, my parents came to fetch me at bus station. I'm so pleased to see my dad is recover very well from his accident on last month. When I reach home, I saw my dad's bike damaged very badly and still haven't fixed it. I decided not to take the photo because I felt very heart broken to see it.

When I entered my old room which is now become a store room, I looked at my favorite posters on the wall, it really brought me back my old days memories... My mom still don't want to tear down the old posters.

My favorite 500cc posters

On Saturday, I went to visit my relatives with my parents. Then at the late afternoon went to Penang Island with my old friend to pass something and begins our Concert DVD hunting... Too bad we were in wrong timing, all the DVD shops closed due to enforcements coming to catch those pirated DVD sellers. Then we went to Batu Lanchang next to Nam Hwa Hospital ate our favorite chicken rice, sorry no photo because I forgot to bring along my camera :P

The next day, Sunday... was my food hunting day. Many thanks to Chen who accompany me for food hunting, nice meeting you Chen :)

The first place we went to the most famous and delicious Asam Laksa in the world at Air Hitam market there... Very sorry again I was too excited with the Laksa and forgot to snap the photo :P... Anyway you can see the Laksa photo at Chen's blog. Then we went to Swatow Lane for another food hunting, this time I very smart and took some photos there...


My no.1 favorite... Char Koay Teow.

Karen Q requested me to tapao the Char Koay Teow, ok... now you can print it out and eat it... kekekeke...

Penang style Chee Cheong Fan... with prawn paste gravy.

Penang Cendol... so creamy, not too sweet, damn yummy :P~~~

In the evening, I called up my another old friend, thought want to ask him out for food hunting, too bad he had a very bad accident three weeks ago. I rushed to visit him to see what was going on. Someone mistaken pour acid on his face, his left eye almost gone blind! His left face also get burned badly until to his chest. Doctor have to cut some skins from his leg to replace on his face and body. That bastard who pour the acid will get punish by god... yes... I curse that bastard!!!

Monday morning, my dad went to bought my favorite Hokkien Mee (Prawn Mee). That's my another favorite :)

Penang Hokkien Mee (Prawn Mee)


Afternoon I went to my old best friend's house and try up his new setup of guitar effects... When I tried on it... The feeling really WOW!!! These gadgets combine with a tube amp are really a perfect match!

Electric guitar effects

Oh yah... before I went to my friend's house I went to see a 'sifu' to fix my shoulder pain problem in Bagan Lalang, now I feel lots better and I can resume my badminton game soon :) But the medicine he gave me really scary me, I have to take 8 tablets each time!

The medicines

I'm Back!!!

it's a long story, my friend just park his car next door to his office, the next door businessman really a bastard, many people wanna give him a lesson... so the culprit thought that businessman was my friend, so that's how happened. Too bad no body can trace that culprit.
