been here in Perth, OZ, since last Sunday. it's winter currently.. brrr.. no snow.. still cold especially mlm.
i'm lucky as i got an official 'chaperon' ekeheheh actually a colleague of mine, dia dah duk kat perth over 4 years, so this guy, malaysian guy, yg dok bawak i merayap nightly, except for mlm arrival, n monday nite, merata2 ceruk Perth.
p lepak kat locale's spot instead of touristy places. man.. he brought me to this killer little ceasar's pizzeriain leederville. superb eskimo joe's.. dessert pizza, and seafood pizza!
the night before we went to charcoal chicken in northbridge.. yummy briyani! mmg sedap giller nasi briyani dia.
then semlm p this one mom&pop's place for chilis mussels.. man... mmg sinsing lengan trenchcoat lar dok layan. kat victoria park.. come on.. p lar.. seriously best chilli mussels in Perth.. no kidding! look at this pix.. (pst.. killer freshly made garlic bread too.. forgo ur diet girls.. take that carb.. worth it!)

tonight.. we went for malaysian restaurant.. Insan, kat city.. very near to david jones, woolworths, target.. that area lar. ghupa2nya his gang sedang menanti. dia dah plan nak jumpa dorg.. tapi sebab i dah terbalik lambat n tumpang dia, sepatutnya i turun kat rydges, but he said tak lapar ke.. so tag along la.. eheh fun company. ada yg with wifey n kids, ada yg come with kid only, ada yg dtg sorg2 bini tinggal umah.. colleague i ni jer yg single dad, tapi anak kat kl. tgk2 owner tu cakap dorg belanja.. ya Allah.. they're all nice & fun folks to hang out with :) moga bertambah murah lah rezeki dorg.

and seriously i'm so in love with perth.. nightly after dinner.. my colleague ni bawak p tour other places, such as king's park.. fresh.. fresh air everywhere.. langit cerah giler!

What did you think, I would do at this moment, When you're standing before me, With tears in your eyes Tryin to tell me that you Found you another And you just don't love me no more
And what did you think, I would say at this moment, When I'm faced with the knowledge, That you just don't love me ? Did you think I would curse you, Or say things to hurt you, Cause you just don't love me no more..
Did you think I could hate you Or raise my hands to you Oh come on you know me too well! How could I hurt you When darling I love you And you know, I would never hurt you..
What do you think I would give at this moment If you just stay I'd subtract twenty years from my life I'd fall down on my knees, I kiss the ground that you walk on If I could just hold you again
I'd fall down on my knees Kiss the ground that you walk on baby If I could just hold you If I could just hold you I would fall down, down on my knees Oh God, please Let me hold you, let me hold you Again...
3rd business trip in 10 months working with current company. and this time i'm sent to cold, cold oslo! first day sampai, 11th Feb it's about -9degC.
it's cold! today is the 4th day. last 2 evenings we have dinner together with peeps from corporate. nice seafood both nite. tonite teh girls, from KL, Perth n Houston, we wandered around Oslo, taking pix, and have nice dinner in an oriental place.
lama tak update. busy tak hingat october ni. suma cam zombie kat office tu.
anyway, mlm ni 3rd nite in Hanoi, 1st nite dinenr kat Director innovation Norway, nice food, lotsa vegetarian food. kat Hanoi ni majoriti food dia letak ba-alif-ba-ya. kena extremely careful. then viatnemese ni tak reti sgt sal vegetarian food ni
2nd nite layan nasi goreng seafood room service. lucky stay kat Fortuna Hotel (singaporean hotel), with very good rate. 4 stars hotel, but with that rate, we got executive lounge treatment, check in check out spesel, dgn capitol lounge nyer. okaylar dok pening2 pusing area Dang Ha street ni, yg dekat dgn Vietnam VEFAC ni, at least dok lapar p lepak kat lounge layan fruit juice, finger foods, coklat n yogurt.. hahaha
3rd nite. tghhari tak lunch. aiyoo maa.. depa kasi pizza.. chicken pizza... so kitorg ni dok layan kacang n kerepek dari pagi ke ptg. lucky lar breakfast i amik egg gak. so ptg tadi, dgn rombongan delegate dari Malaysia fm other companies, jadi kamcing sebab jumpa kat booth memasing kat vefac tu, kitorg serbu Nisa Restaurant, (32 Hang Tre pronounces as Hang Tier) senang citer kat Hanoi ni, nak p mana2 tulis terang2 alamat tu then tunjuk kat cab driver. (lagi satu sebab kamcing; dok nampak dari jauh yg pakai tudung, ada lar 2 org minah cun ni yg pakai tudung dari KL, 3 dari indon, tak rapat sgt, then ada sorg visitor dari KL)
satu citer sal cab driver, yg leh nak di harap skit, hanoi cab, mailinh, vida cab, kalo tak salah. yg tak cab driver tak pakai uniform tu, walopun mmg rupa cab ala2 hanoi cab gak.. jgn lar naik. kena cab meter tampered jenuh lah keluar millions of dongs.
haa one more thing in Hanoi (i think maybe in Ho Chi Minh as well kot) depa ni on the road, manjang honking. don't take this as offensive. honking is as an alert for them.
tang sampai simpang jer.. tak kira motor dari simpang mana depa leh berselirat lalu celah each other. but yg berjalan kaki, leh selamba kodok cross the junction/road tak kira lar dgn keta n motor berterabur crossing across, those will elak jugak yg pejalan kaki yg tgh melintas tu. paling cool i tgk sorg minah dgn short skirt, leh benti tgh2 crossroad tu about couple of second to text sth on her mobile. oh my!
then satu lagi.. scooter n vespa. this is consider as sign of status gak lar ni. mahai gak vespa kat sini. kalo yg kerja biasa2 leh nampak depa naik honda/yamaha motor biasa. yg cam executive skit, esp the ladies depa bawak vespa. siap heels yg 3 - 4inches tu.
in another word; this is a nice experience for me. always love to travel and see people and their countries :) sayangnyer tak sempat sgt nak lepak lelama.
anyway, mlm ni nak google up bit on water puppet theater. mlm esok kalo sempat nak p tgk.
yesterday was the last day in TV company. after 5 years. like i shared with my SM, so many blood, tears, sweat hidden btwn those 4 walls of TV. have learnt a lot definitely. and it's time to move on.
am nervous to start off with new career, new company in July. sth similar but not the same. new ofc now in GTower. so kena wake up much earlier. but hey.. dunno why, this morning, evethough i'm not working, i woke up more willingly and easily compared to other previous working days... hmmm ;) i think i know why.
anyway it was good farewell yesterday. actually the farewell start the day before even. dok sob sob here n there. the day before tu i pass around to key staffs thank you note. then my big boss panggil masuk bilik beri kata2 pujian, semangat suma sampai i xleh tahan. mmg berair mata nyer lar. n i baru nak mintak recommedation letter, tgk2 dah siap pun.. sebak lagi ooo....
pastu semlm, dari pagi ke ptg, sambil2 chase after last clients, sempat lagi sebak2, sendoff farewell email, ramai gak client replied.. pastu my key client called. i really like this guy a lot, professionally lar. he's big guy in one of ict glc.
btw got some pressies for farewell, of coz sum books... they all know i'm book addicts. hahaha then dapat teddy bears n pearl bracelet. so touched. then i cakap kat dorg oh.. masa bday tak dapat hadia haa.. masa resign dapat.. ni nak kena resign every month ni... haha
am enjoying my morning with my playlist.nak kemas2 all the official letters, study bit, then gotta balik temerloh afternoon.
wish me n pray for me for my new venture friends. hope this new chapter bring me new blessings. aamiiin.
