I close my eyes.
I feel the soft wind breathing over my face.
I hear the waves breaking on the fine sands.
I hear the palm leaves battering against one another
I hear children playing over the pool,
and still with eyes closed under the cooling shades,
All I see is green of the grass, blue sky, and clear water.
My heart beats slower, my limbs feel relaxed. Just my idea of a perfect day.

Penang 30th August 2009, Afternoon at Batu Feringgi Beach, Holiday Inn Cafe.

ps: Who needs to go away a thousand miles for the most perfect place on earth, when perfect comfort is just nearby. I believe there's something beautiful everywhere you go & I'm glad I found my moment in Penang.

Phuket Bliss

Finally! we went to Phuket, just a 4 days 3 night trip, but it was a refreshing (and much needed) holiday. Great things we did:
1. Snorkelling and swimming in the gorgeous blue turquoise waters of Ko Phi Phi Islands
2. Lazing around the picturesque Maya Bay
3. Sea-Canoeing thru the cave tunnels in Ao Phang Nga lagoons
4. Finding the bohemian secluded beach of Leam Singh.
5. Shopping in JungCeylon (too little time)
6. 1 hour thai massage, first time in my life. so invigorating!
7. Sunset at the windy PhromPaet Cape
8. Eating thai street food, meat satays!
9. Enjoying the friendliness and the smiles of the Thai people
10. Renting a car for a day and beach crusing all the west facing Phuket Beaches...
This trip to Phuket is our first, but not the last hopefully! I can almost hear its beauty calling us back for another trip :) We will be back :)

food galore

Last night, after a surprisingly good day at my office - finally managed to complete my last report for the month without having to stay back late! - we went out for a late dinner (me & hubby).
We went to Changkat Bukit Bintang, and ate in The Social :)
A small eatery place, with a pool table upstairs, alongside other similar food&watering holes on the popular alley, esp among foreigners. I got to say this was the best food i ever tasted so far in KL. It's got a 'mat saleh' price, but they do ensure the taste levels up to the expected standard. Service was also great & we ate al fresco just on the side of the street, with the cool night breeze of KL. Hopefully will be back again!

There are other food spots I want to try...:
- Yong Tau Foo - Ampang Area. apparently it's the best in town.
- Pan Mee - Jln Burung Babarau , Taman Bukit Maluri, Kepong. My colleagues introduced me to various pan mee around office, and now i cant get enough of it :)
- Ma Maison - apparently serves good french resto (with free flow salad bar) + excellent service.
- GrooveJunction Sri Hartamas - for a jazzy ambience :)

Oh no wonder i've been growing to the sides :)
