Catching Up With Everyone

My head is fuzzy…….. I just got back from a 3 hour long Genting trip with Chee Kiang, Daryl, Justin and Pei Sze and I’ve got like an accumulation of outings’ photos to post up and yet I am procrastinating. I know it’s not good to be coming home past two four four consecutive days but this is my compensation for being in Kedah.

Went swimming with Chee Kiang at Villa on Wednesday night. Was quite afraid of getting electrocuted as the skies were threatening the onset of a storm. The entire olympic sized pool was empty that night. It was fun as I have not gone swimming…since..OH MY FUCKING GOD…since before National Service! But then it started to drizzle.. =

We went to Hartamas at 12am for mamak with Daryl, Justin, Jonathan(Ooi!) and Eu-Foh! It’s great catching up with them and they entertained me with their PD trip stories and BIG FAT JUICY GOSSIPS that has strangely been kept away from the ears of THE Jolene Lai. BIG FAT JUICY ONE YEAR OLD GOSSIPS. Gah. Any interested ex-SMK Subang Utama ke po chi can ask me about it if curiosity gets the better of you. Tee-hee.

But it’s always good to catch up with old friends. Daryl was my form2 classmate. Justin and Jonathan were my primary school mates. Chee Kiang and Eu Foh were my classmates in form4 and form5.


Justin shi sha-ing at Devi’s Corner.


They pretended to be stoned because it was only hours after the closure of their PD trip and they have not gotten enough sleep yet.

It is not a habit, but it has been long proposed for the gang to pay a visit to Luna Bar. Yes, again. But this time, I can say for sure that this batch of photos are the MOST beautiful ones I’ve ever gotten from the place. Feast your eyes..


L-r: Sush and Manda


l-r: Myself and Sush


l-r: Mun Teng and myself


L-r: Mel, Mun Teng, Sush


Camwhoring

OK..so I finally learnt the magic of slow shutter speed. Pretty?


Now you have a clear photo of the much hyped about alcoves.


THE swimming pool in the middle of the bar.


Couldn’t stop getting excited with my new found discovery – slow shutter speed. Beautiful reflection, no?


Beautiful Chien with beautiful lighting.


The mother of all camwhoring techniques. I propped the camera up with some coasters, an ashray and an upside down cup and set the timer and used slow shutter speed. Chung Lern will be so proud of me.


Mel in a similiar pose.


Amanda wanted one too. Love the reflection again.


Sush looks amazing here.


How can I not want one of myself in that pose too? Hehehe.


One is not enough. At least this one is sharper.


I put the camera on the table, LCD screen facing the table surface and snapped the Christmas deco.


After awhile it started to rain. The heavy clouds were well illuminated by the lights from the city. It was almost as bright as daylight even thought it was about 10pm.


l-r: Me, Mun Teng, Mel


It’s a must.


😀


Mel looking sweet here.


A view of the bar.

After awhile, the guys arrived. Kevin, Marcus, Chun Meng, E-Guy, Barry and Chun Guan. Admittedly, all in all it was a fun night la. Despite the earlier misunderstandings:P Sorry people.


l-r: Kevin, Sush, Mel


Oh!!! Lydia actually came with her boyfriend Tek Jian and her friends. Fancy bumping into her here.
l-r: Me, Lydia, Tek Jian, Vern Lyn(?), Jessie(?)


One of us together.


Now that I’ve discovered slow shutter speed and the timer function and learning how to prop it on a stable surface ala tripod style, it’s time to snap panaromic shots of the skyline. Here you go!


Tell me it’s not beautiful?:D


More lights.


Couldn’t find a good surface to get a nice view of the KL Tower. But this is good enough!


Perhaps the most beautiful photo in all the photos I’ve ever taken in Luna Bar.


L-r: Chun Guan and I.
My top was too low and my cleavage was NOT a sexy line. It was like a friggin Chanel logo. The two Cs joining together back to back that type. Damn obscene. So, yeah, censored. Do not be surprised that I have my “conservative” moments.


l-r: Marcus, Kevin, Chun Meng, Mel, Chun Guan and Myself


A very nice photo of e-Guy and Mel. I’m sure my classmate back in Kedah will be like printing this picture out from my blog because she thinks E-Guy’s really really really cute. This picture is a really good one of him!


L-r: “Charlie” and Mel.


An okay shot of the guys. I didn’t frame this pic too well.


L-r: Me, E-Guy, Kevin


L-r: me, Kevin

I think Kevin was drunk that night. When we stopped at a traffic light after Luna Bar, he got out of Chun Meng’s car, and came knocking on my car. Then ran back to CHun Meng’s car. At another traffic light, he poked his head out of the sunroof and waved madly at us.


l-r: me, E-Guy, Barry


Sean and manda. <3. Sean brought his twin brother Rudy and a couple of other friends along that night.


Another panaromic view of a part of the city.


l-r: Mel, Sush, Me, and Chien


More..


l-r: Kevin, Chun Meng


Chun?


OK, that is REALLY Genting Highlands. The last time I managed a shot of Genting Highlands was with my ancient Sony Cybershot and even then it was like a blur of yellow lights.


The mezzanine floor. (the area above the main bar).


We stayed until 1am and even KLCC had turned off their lights.

A strange thing happened. A doctor from USJ had a patient who has a sister who was going for National Service on the 1st of January 2006.(so pityful). She was worried about national service and the doctor referred her to ME with my blog address/email address, I’m not sure which.

Anyway, the girl added me on MSN and we got chatting. She’s from USJ12’s school and just finished her SPM and was shit worried about national service. Who wouldn’t be?

I met up with her on Thursday morning in McD’s Taipan with my national service photos and letters between me and Weng Lum and gave her my blog entries as well for preparation.

hahahaha, the poor girl is a banana too. I hope the first batch is far better than the third batch. I mean the first batch usually don’t have a choice and so even the educated ones have not started their tertiary education yet? Whereelse the third batch, it’s like even if the educated ones got it, they’d defer.


This is Marie. Wish her luck!


This is Yang Ching and she was my kindergarten classmate and we were the best of friends back then. Sadly, growing up in different schools(she was studying in SMSJ) kind of got us drifted away and for years we’ve been meaning to catch up.

Finally we did some bonding over mamak in USJ9. Surprisingly we can still click SO well despite not talking to each other properly for nearly 6-7 years.

One night when we were 7 years old and were in her mother’s car somewhere in USJ Taipan, we got really bored waiting for her mother to be done with her chores and we decided to play “pretend”. We pretended that we were old enough to go shop for bra and panties together. Because shopping for lingerie is what adults did and it would be so fun.

We played alot of things together. From masak-masak.. to Polly Pocket..to taking down all the cushions in my house and building a fort together…to excluding my then very little brother from all our ‘big girl games’…to throwing my brother on her pokey grass….to gushing about our crushes and covering each other’s mouths when one of us threatened to spill it to our parents… we went swimming together….and ‘watered the plants’ together…

It was so fun lah. So yeah, she’s my childhood friend. She’ll definitely be invited to my wedding when I DO get married. Hahaha.


She was my classmate for two years! We both had a crush on this little boy called Derek(2nd row, 2nd from left) who sat at our table. My I-hate-boys phase never happened.

Yang Ching was my first friend in kindergarten. She was the one patting me on my back when I was crying on my first day back in 1992 as I was the new-girl-who-came-from-that-Petaling Jaya-kindergarten.


A close up. She’s the one on the left in the front row. I’m the one on the right in the back row. The one next to her is Li-Lynn, who was from SMK Seafield and is also a PTS!


Our graduation class picture in 1993!! Hehehe. The boy in the back row 4th from left is Joash Tan. Most Subang Utama people would know who he is.


It’s not too difficult to spot me. Yang Ching’s the 2nd one from right in the row below mine. The Chinese boy above her was her second crush in kindergarten. hehehe, she fell for him because he used to share his Tupperware food with her. So cute. My crush is the partial little boy on my right. He was quite a bastard to me as he was in this “I hate girls” phase throughout kindergarten. I was suffering in silence. LOL.

This morning I managed to catch up with Esther, Mun Teng, LiPengAndEdison and V-ng Yan(whom some of us have not seen since SPM finished!!).


l-r: Mun Teng, Esther, V-ng Yan, Me, Li Peng

We suddenly realised that it was almost like a 3 Cekap reunion! We were all in the same class back in form3! But V-ng Yan was my standard 6 classmate, and Li Peng was my classmate from form2 right up till form5! It felt SO weird to not have her sitting next to me after that. Can also be considered an exSR SS19 reunion. Since all of us except Esther and Edison were from SR SS19 Subang Jaya.


Li Peng and her VERY buff Edison(what you did laa?)

I can’t imagine that this is their..*takes out calculator* OHMIGOD, 6th year together. Amazing…too amazing. But so sweet!!:)

I’ll post the Genting photos in another entry. If I don’t manage another entry, Happy New Year to everybody, okay?
