Pixart Pocket Books Make The Perfect Gifts!

I was recommended to Dominic and his team at www.pixart.com.my by Minishorts to help them do a review on their new Pixart product – Pixart Pocket Book which was launched on the 1st of September.

I myself wouldn’t usually order things online but I have to say it’s quite innovative, what they are doing. I LOVE IT!!! You will see why.

Basically, it’s a company which caters to people who want to make picture books of themselves and their happier moments. It’s like, you can make a story book about you. Think Peter and Jane. Mine SEEMS like a Peter and Jane book anyway. Haha. With the cute big fonts and the big big pictures!

The photobook is about the size of two palms with a personalized hardcover. There are 12 printed pages(double sided printing too! Very worth it!) for your selection of photos. It is only RM50 and I think that it is worth it!  Any additional pages would be charged RM1.50 each. It’s beautiful and well presented and it makes great gifts. Saves the hassles of shopping for something just as meaningful.

Oooh!! From the 1st to the 30th of September, there will be a 20% discount for all users. Do hurry if you’re planning on buying. Anybody loves a pretty thing with their face on it, no?

To start off, you would be required to download a program called Photostylist. It’s a simple program which enables you to choose layouts for your Pixart pocket book and insert photos and the texts to go with it.


It might be a little confusing in the beginning, but very soon you’ll be clicking and tweaking your Pixart book to perfection. The first step would be to get the photos that you want and it will be displayed on a bar situated at the bottom of the screen.


On to creating pages, you will be given a variety of layouts to choose from. You can also download extra layouts from the pixart website itself.


You even get to personalize the cover of the photobook. How fun is that??


After you’re done, you get to preview your work. If you don’t like it, you just go back and adjust. Very flexible.


When you’re satisfied, you would have to fill up your particulars and then upload it to Pixart’s server.


Plus shipping is RM56.00 to anywhere in Malaysia. Shipping to Singapore would be RM25 extra. Apparently shipping to other countries is also supported.

Since I had to go back to Kedah before the Pixart book arrived at my house in Subang, I asked if they could send it to Kedah for me. I was amazed that they actually agreed to send it all the way here!

I purposely bought a bigger postbox to anticipate the arrival of the pixart photo book. I even left a big note scrawled on an A4 paper on the postbox giving instructions to the postman to dump it inside for me, if there was a package for me. I simply cannot afford the time to go down to the post office and collect it. I’ve been having classes from 8.30am to 5pm for the past two days!! (more on that later!)

Imagine my happiness when I came back and found a brown paper package sitting inside my red postbox!


It’s here!!
The cover is nice and solid with a matte finish. The quality of the photos is clear and it was not reduced at all.


The personalised cover spreads from the back to the front cover. Nice touch, don’t you think?


For 12 printed pages, it resembles a children’s storybook!


The quality of the photo seems alright, doesn’t it?? I’m honestly very impressed by the fact that a photo which is only 56k looks pretty presentable!

The texture of the pages feels like a very thick magazine paper. I love the quality!


Dominic adviced me to use photos that can fill up the entire page. I was a little apprehensive at first because I didn’t want to waste space and wouldn’t I look horrendous, all enlarged?

Now that I have seen the finished product, I have to agree that it does LOOK really classy that way.


These four photos are only 56k in size and they still look pretty good. No ugly huge pixels. YAY!


You can add effects like shadow borders or even change the colour of the photos to sepia.


A few more low resolution photos that turned out so nicely.


Two more pages of full sized photos.


Doesn’t it look like a story book to you? I know it looks like I’m making a gift for Chee Kiang right? Hahahhaa. No! It’s all mine! Mine! (Maybe I’ll buy one for him la;))


Basically it’s up to you how you want your Pixart photo book to look.


Flipping through the story of us. Hehe.


A close up.


That pre-valentine’s day dinner at Starhill. Don’t you agree that the lighting where the photos were taken looks pretty good on glossy pages?


Can’t get enough of them full sized photos. I get to be my own centerfold pullout. Hehehe. NOT that I want to pull anything out from this precious photo book! *hugs photobook tightly*


I’m sure he’ll love this book just as much…


…as I do. Heh. No, it still stays with me.


But since it’s only RM50, I’ll definitely be back for more.


…and we lived happily ever after!


Yes, as you can see, I’m satisfied. NO LAH I AM NOT TRYING TO SUCK UP. You can ask Lie Yuen, I was carrying it around the house the entire day, caressing it and flipping through. I’ve never had photos of myself printed into a book of sorts, so it’s still a novelty to me.


I’ll definitely be back for more. Mother’s day, Father’s Day, Brother’s Day, Camwhore Day..etc would be good reasons to buy more!

By the way, if you like, they have a larger version called the Coffee Table Photobook. That looks pretty artistic if you put great snapshots in it.

Many thanks to Pixart for the free photobook! I had fun doing the review. If you have any further enquiries, please feel free to email Pixart at customerservice@pixart.com.my or call 03-77105092.

*goes off to caress matte hardcover pixart book..and the contents too. ahem*

 

Merdeka And Some Alcohol

I had some pitiful plans planned for Merdeka eve.

I was supposed to carry it all by my lonesome. For a couple of years now I’ve been wanting to catch the fireworks(which is at Sunway Pyramid) from the overhead bridge near my old school. It has got a pretty good view of the entire Sunway area! Or even sitting at the steep slope of grass at the corner of my school compound would have been a romantic idea – problem is my boyfriend is running around a round-a-bout in NUS 49 times to commemorate Merdeka with the other Malaysians in Singapore. -_-. Nus tradition apparently.

But it seems that Bryan was having a mini gathering, so I had to shelf the fireworks from a bridge plan for another year.(provided I have plans for this year’s New Year eve).


Penny and I were supposed to go together, but due to some miscommunication, I ended up in Jasiminne’s car and we followed Penny down to SS2. Then Jasiminne ter-overtook Penny and then we got lost. -_- For awhile.


I keep thinking that Bryan’s underwear is like a dick-sock of sorts. Oh, you know the type. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, I’ll try my best to explain in the comments later.


Penny made extremely sweet cupcakes. Damn sweet wei Penny..


Jasiminne was going around with her new Lomocam.


And I finally got to meet Asyraf. At long last!


Rightt.


Yee Hou and I camwhoring with the fishies.


Cheryl has the exact same earring as me.


Kelli and I. When I was with Chee Kiang at the Curve on saturday night, we bumped into her, cheryl and bryan. Seems that chee kiang knows kelli since their leo club days. Oooo! .. But alah, Subang Jaya know each other also no big deal lah. Haha. We’re all connected!


Ivan. I’m supposed to guestblog for you kan..:( Coming soon, coming soon. Don’t give up on me.


Albert and his two lower deciduous central incisors. The permanent central incisors never erupted. Strange boy, he is.


Hey, that’s me.


Why, hello there~. 😉


Another pic of Cheryl and I.


LOL LOL LOL!!! Angle only…


See Penny’s face like naik syok only.


SO cute!!! Wanna take a guess who’s the girl ar?


Kelli and I reenacted our raping Bryan scene. Damn nice to pull his pants. But he tied his pants so tightly.

Someone started to make drinks for everyone and I had like Bacardi, Chivas, Wine and Beer….. i think. Already it doesn’t sound like good news right? Read on lah.


I can’t remember who suggested we took class photos. Hahhaa. Damn funny.


A prim and proper one.


Someone said to Penny, “Oi!! Where got teacher smoke one??” and then she said, “I AM MRS. WONG! The school principal!” and she took a big puff like damn tow kei like that. I laughed so hard. Still laughing now actually. Penny,penny,penny. You should have seen the expression on her face.. so authoritative! Tai ka cheh! *shakes head*


HAHA. Damn red.

Kelli thought us a game called “the Honest game”. We all sat in a circle with a drink in our hands. We were each supposed to admit to something ie. “I’m not wearing a bra today.”…then those who are not wearing a bra, will have to drink. Guys also don’t wear bras right? So it’s applicable too. So it goes on in a circle with each person admitting to some secret of sorts. QUite fun!

The things we got to learn about each other……..*evil laugh* Some of you are very naughty indeed. Very naughty.


Seng Meng and i! He was also damn red. I think you were abit tipsy, Seng Meng! 🙂


ooo!! Oo!! Mikel!! When I first started blogging, he was one of my very very first blogging friends. I dare say even the first blogger friend that I have.

You can see from the look on my face that I was abit red and not quite myself. It’s all in the eyes, look closer.

I went up to him and said, “Mikel!!! I’VE NEVER SEEN YOU BEFORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” and hugged him tight tight and camwhored with him immediately. And like I have mentioned, I would never have done that if I didn’t have anything to drink. I don’t get all touchy-feely when I first meet a person. So not me.


l-r: Mikel, Slinky, Shawn, Yee Hou, Jack


Look at Yee hou!! HAHAahahaha.


Jasiminne and I


Penny and Mikel


Our gracious host.


Sherve and I! Such a hot chick!


LOL! Check out the faces! Yo penny!


Another one of Sherve and I.


Joh… memang weird adi.


Check out Yee Hou’s lips. It’s like the centre is connected to each other leaving two holes at the sides. Heehee.


hehehe. Damn hiau por face.


And I climbed up the wall which separates Bryan from his neighbours and sat there.


Yee Hou and Cynthia


I was then joined by Jasiminne and Penny.


One more.


wooops. See, told you I was wayyyy off tangent. I’m very very very straight, for the record. No hint of bi-ness in me. I’m sure it was the alcohol. *nods vigorously*


Not missing a photo opportunity, that Albert. -_-


I love this photo. I don’t know why, but the lighting is just so dramatic in this one.


L-r: Shawn, Ivan and Calvin


l-r: jasiminne, me, Shawn, Ivan and Calvin


Penny and I lying on the hood of someone’s car.


shawn and i

After a vague and foggy drive back to Subang(thanks Jasiminne!), I met up with Mun Teng, Ben Shyen, Sze Hsiung, his sister Jennifer, David and Kelvin Lim at Suku.

Apparently they also decided to go up a bridge to catch the Sunway fireworks and so we adjourned to the overhead bridge in SS15.

I remember being deep in conversation with Sze Hsiung and he was very friendly to me …in fact very layan as I tried my best to keep a straight head. Ehehe, thanks for  layaning me despite my slightly weird…weirdness.

ben Shyen and I. See my eyes wei…see my eyes. So…pelik.


Mun Teng came in.


top l-r: Ben Shyen, Mun Teng, Jennifer, Kelvin
bottom l-r: Me, David, Sze Hsiung


Another cuter one! I think Jennifer looks really hot here! Reminds me of Adrian’s girlfriend, Delene. Speaking of Delene, I was watching Sush’s uni’s Malaysian Night Video and Mun Teng and I were drooling over Delene’s body.

*whacks Adrian on the head* You lucky bastard!! (and good luck for your anatomy paper today.)


Why lah Ben Shyen never smile….


Kelvin and I! He was showing me a pic of him in which he used to have pink hair on top of those blonde spikes.

I went back home and went online and must’ve spoke alot of crap on MSN.

I vaguely remember taking my hands and pretending that my keyboard was Mahjong tiles.

the effect ended up looking like that:

kslajdiuhiuehr734y23475dsf;dsf”;dds345$#%3$%./;d1~1Dg

I felt really sick when I went home. I honestly can’t really recall what I crapped on on MSN that night.

So imagine the laughs I had when I opened my chat history a few days later. Hahahhaha. Now you can laugh with me too.

I know I caused Esther and Chee Kiang to call me all the way from Australia and Singapore. LOL.

I cried on the phone to Chee Kiang and wailed that I was hungry and nobody wants to cook for MEeeeeEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeEeeeee….

Gees. *shakes head*



See, even booze also spell wrongly. sheesh.

LOL, oklah, don’t know about you guys, but I didn’t remember parts of the conversation so I really burst out laughing here and there. Hahaha.

I know my so called drunk experience is not much. Crying, making out with a girl, not walking straight, manja-ing, puking twice and being random and crude is NOTHING…but cut me some slack lah, I’ve been couped up in Kedah and hardly get to go OUt anD AboUt.. so……..this is still something different for me.

Happy Merdeka!

I wonder what our forefathers would be thinking if they know that their great granchildren celebrate the country’s independence by getting high. Hehe.

Oh! Oh! I was checking my statcounter last night… and I went WTF!!!!!! when I saw this:

Like what exactly was going on in the person’s head who googled MY name, Douglas Lim’s name, and KLPAC????

?!???!?!??!?

The Great Singapore Adventure

It was crazy. Even though it was only for a weekend but it was a DAMN fun trip.

We set off for Singapore at 4am and reached Singapore at 9.50am.

After picking me up, Daryl picked Kailin up and we headed down south.


This is somewhere in Johor. It’s nice watching the sunrise from the highway!


No kidding..!


Daryl was getting all artistic and stuff.


This was about 6.50am..


Daryl calls this the egg yolk!


Our kind and patient designated driver.


A morning view of the causeway.


Down to Singapore! WHeee!!


I LOVE THIS PIC!!!


And this one too. You can see the sunrays from behind the cloud.


Did you hear about the guy who drove into the motorcycle lane at the checkpoint and needing the guards there to remove some cones for him so that he could cross over to the correct lane? *malu*


We decided to go have a look at Kai-Lin’s university first.


This is Daryl. He is lost.


How cool is that? It’s only ONE hall and they have a big ass poster for their orientation WITH sponsors. I’m so jealous.


Look at all the cute banners. This is how a university should be. 🙁


Poor Daryl was very very lost.


This is him, trying his best to help by asking for directions.


Near Kai-Lin’s block. She is supposed to stay in Hall Residence 9.


Still lost.


Alas we found it.


One poser pic before leaving NTU to go look for Chee Kiang at NUS.


So sweet right.:)


NUS – the university I really wanted to go to but was never smart enough to get into. Should have studied harder when I was younger..


You tell me, how NOT to be jealous. Trees in abundance, cooling even on a sunny day.


Chee Kiang’s call has its own …what’s this thing called again? Emblem(sp?)? Code of arms?


He is staying in Sheares Hall.. BLOODY COOL RIGHT. Got lobby with GLASS doors. Nyamaaaa…


Got elevator somemore, don’t play play..


The uber beautiful view from his window. I know of office windows with lousier views. LUCKY LUCKY LUCKY!!


Now this really took the cake. His table was at least slightly longer than 2 meters!!! ARGHHHHHHH.. I am SO jealous. 🙁 🙁 🙁


So cute right, his seniors made all the juniors name signs to put outside their door. I was walking past the corridor and calling all the names as I passed them by. Hehehe, nobody came out to greet me though.


Wood concept. Come here to live poshly or study one?


Chee Kiang brought me up to the roof top of his block.


Time to go to Hotel 81 on Bencoolen street to check in!


🙂 In Daryl’s car along the way.


Oh look at that! And actual hot air balloon!


The young lovebirds. Not that WE are old, just that their love is new, young and eager. 🙂 Ah. *swipes tear from eyes*


Chee Kiang and I.


And we saw cows!


While the guys checked in, Kai-Lin and I decided to do some obligatory camwhoring.


A photo of her taking a photo.

The four of us got a room together. We were abit shocked that it was one big double bed..and had to sleep horizontally, four in a row, with our legs sticking out at the other end.


I became too cool when Chee Kiang slipped his sunnies onto my face.


Crossing streets in the city.


We ate at Cafe Catel. They all say that Singaporean hawker food sucks. But over the weekend we ate


Chee Kiang and I..


Tomato soup? I just like taking photos of my meals, but I have problems remembering their names.


The interior.


Check out the size of Daryl and Kai-Lin’s pork ribs… madness.


Since we’ve never seen such a large portion of food before, we took photos.


Chee Kiang’s chicken something something with spaghetti something something..


My carbonara!!! It was so good…


Daryl couldn’t care less and used his hands anyway.


We call him the barbaric barbarian. A barbaric barbarian is someone who pales in comparison when it comes to a barbarian at table etiquette. hehe.


The cool toilets..


*froths at mouth* BIKINI!! OMFG!!!!!!!!!!! And it was like $24 for a set and the second one was at half price!! Damnit, so so so so cheap. I bought two sets and it only cost me $36. In Malaysia, an average set of bikini will set you back about Rm150. I could get three sets of bikinis and it wouldn’t even cost me more than what I should pay for one back home. This place is called Sheer Romance. I can’t remember which mall it was. I was just blindly walking in and out of malls along orchard. I’ve lost count how many shopping malls there were along Orchard Road.


What a cool graffiti wall.


One of us.


After walking for a few hours, I finally had the chance to meet up with some of chee kiang’s junior college mates!!! All ASEAN scholars too..*feels intimidated*.
L-r: Fui Chin, Britney, Kay(Sp?)


Check out the mini peace pendant on Brit’s neck.


AND CHECK OUT THE BIG ASS ONE ON Chun Leen!!
L-r: Chun Leen, Fui Chin,Brit, Kay

Yes, this is the one and only Charming Chun Leen that all of you were so hot over a couple of months back. I finally got to meet him despite talking to him on msn/skyping/blogs etc etc for ages!!


Charming Chun Leen and Fui Chin


Daryl’s got a cool bling bling on his lobe.


Check out Charming Chun Leen’s nipple. He had a mini growth (with pus) at the bottom of his left nipple and had to go drain it out. So here’s the scar and it looks like a smiley face.


To prove that it REALLY looks like a smiley face, Fui Chin decided to take it a step further by demonstrating what they meant by “smiley face”.


IT’S A SMILING PIG!!!! Hahahahhaa. It’s the nipple that looks like a pig’s nose. HAHAHA cute right???


Chee Kiang got abit carried away…. please don’t bite Chun Leen’s nipple.


Decisions..


The glasses were so unique. It’s like they were about to pour, yet no matter how you try to tip the glass over, it won’t spill. Smart.


Round and round..


Fui Chin ordered this I think. Looks nice!


Charming Chun Leen making himself at home.


A new way of camwhoring.


The lot of us.
L-r: me, Chee Kiang, Charming Chun Leen, Fui Chin, Britney, Kay, Daryl and Kai-Lin.


Britney and I! He is a PTS kid too!! 🙂


Charming Chun Leen and I


See lah, EVERYBODY had a camera with them.


Yup, that’s my boyfriend. -_-


Britney’s sexy ass.


And we did this in the middle of orchard road, obstructing traffic. The river of people had to divert and go around whoever who was holding the camera. LOL.


Sunnies make the best mirrors.


See?


Okay, Jolene the jakun has never seen a mobile Starbucks Coffee dispenser before.


According to Kai-Lin, Daryl was supposed to be her bitch when he went down to Singapore. She’d pay for his every meal. So this is him, giving paw.


Me and a pretty cow. Me + Cow = two cows. T_T Why do I like to insult myself.


We went to this record store (HMV? HVD? What was the name again?) and they were selling vinyl records at $2.60. Fui Chin bought a few…….to decorate her room. Yalah, I am also quite pelikified at the the idea. But you have to admit that it is quite creative!


Daryl loves original cds.


Chee Kiang’s alter ego.


We then had dinner at this place called Din Tai Fung to eat their Siu Long Pau. Some dumplings wrapping around some meat and soup. Mmmm.


Quite a nice place. I was eating good food after good food. Nevermind lar, once in awhile spend abit.


Some soup..


Some sour vegetables..


Chee Kiang’s fried rice!


Siu long paus!!


My noodle soup. Mmmmmm.


They have so many people working on the infamous siu long paus in this glass casing. We were so amused because it looks like they were on display. Hahaha. Chee Kiang said it would be nice if they had a sign that goes, “Don’t feed the chefs”.


Diligent.


We were just cuddling and someone went trigger happy.


The plan was to watch fireworks.. but we were too late and were distracted by Singapore Idol on the telly back at the hotel. So we watched it from the taxi.


While walking along the Esplanade.


We found a park.


And decided that it was empty enough(by my standards, hohoho) to do stupid things.


And when I mean empty enough, I mean about 10 or less people still hanging around. Hehehe.


Daryl can carry Kai-Lin because she’s small in size.

I was so worried that Chee Kiang would break his back. But he managed!!


The guys having a go.


Singapore by night.


I’m not sure which building this was but it sure was pretty. We were trying to walk over to Clarke Quay/Boat Quay.


See the bridge over there? We got a little distracted by the scenery over there and stayed for like three hours just hanging, talking and laughing.


At the brige. l-r: Daryl, Kai-Lin, Chee Kiang and Me.


Oooooo. Love the lights.


Kai-Lin and Daryl


Chee Kiang and I


Still lepaking on the bridge.


The lighting behind us is very nice.


Emoing.


I’m sure by now you can tell that we really didn’t know what to do with our night.


nice or not? Too bad I didn’t bring my tripod.


So you see, two pairs of weirdo couples lepaking by the bridge singing Malaysian national songs.. “Keranamu Malaysia..” “Duli Maha Mulia” “Jalur Gemilang…” i think I threw in a few national service songs as well. LoL.


Before heading out to Orchard Road to have lunch with Daryl’s cousin sister, we decided to camwhore in front of the mirror and with the help of the lovely sunlight.


I love the sunlight. And when I increase the exposure, everything has this glowing effect.


Daryl pan cool.


One more.


Kai-Lin and I. Love her dress.


My new favourite photo taking style.


See how happy they look together. 🙂 So sweet.


The four of us.


🙂


One more..


Not enough sleep.


Pan cute.


We were at this placed called The Coffee Club or something like that. REALLY NICE FOOD!!
L-r: Kai-Lin, Daryl, Daryl’s cousin Yih Yung or Lih Yung..sorry I can’t remember.

She treated us to lunch. So nice of her right?


The place looks damn cool.


And the counter was equally pretty.


Chee Kiang and I


Kai-Lin’s drink.


Some seafood spaggheti thingie…oh you know me and food. I just eat. I don’t understand the fancy schmancy titles given to these dishes.


NOW THIS LOOKS DAMN GOOD. Daryl had some lobster something something.


Chee Kiang’s chocolate expresso or something along those lines.


My strawberry smoothie!


Chee Kiang’s cheese baked rice.


My chicken cacciota. Don’t ask me to pronounce that.


And Chee Kiang’s dessert. So cool looking right? Sorry I jakun.


I really really love the decor. This was just a layer of water, slowly flowing down the sides.
Soon after, we split up with Daryl and Kai-Lin. I loan Daryl my handphone because his phone did not have any credit left. We got carried away and lost track of time and the next thing I knew, the sky was dark.

My dad kept ringing my telephone and Daryl kept saying I was asleep, that we were already driving in Johor and he couldn’t wake me up. Obviously my dad got suspicious right.

So he was so scared he said, “Sorry uncle, alot of cars, heavy traffic..” and he hung up on my dad. OMG.

I was with Chee Kiang at that time and was busy calling Daryl but he didn’t pick up. I myself was getting wroried because the sky was getting dark and we were supposed to leave Singapore at about 6pm. I was so stupid to not think that my father would call to check on me. I should have sent him an sms or something right?

Daryl ended up telling a lie to my father because he was worried that I would go home late. So he had to tell my father that we were already driving.

Then Daryl called Chee Kiang and freaked out about how my father would not STOP calling my phone, resulting in which Chee Kiang freaked out and I nearly died of high blood pressure from all the commotion.

I immediately used Chee Kiang’s handphone to call home and my dad was seriously very very pissed.

My dad boomed, “WHERE ARE YOU NOW?”

Me,”I’m not with Daryl noww………”

At the corner of my eye, I saw Chee Kiang freaking out and making a frantic sleeping motion and mouthing, “sleeping!!! sleeping!!!!” and making a driving motion and mouthing, “Johor!!! johor!!”

Oh, so apparently I was supposed to continue the lie.

“Er..dad… I’m…er actually with Daryl now.. we’re er, In johor…. er, yea I was sleeping er..er..” I just couldn’t go on!!!

My dad was damn angry, “I already told your friend not to bull shit to me ar…what are you playing at??? I hope you guys didn’t do anything irresponsible..”

Sigh. Daryl was actually so scared which is why he came up with that. And I am a horrible liar myself. So I just told my dad that I was sorry, we have not left Singapore yet, we split up at Orchard to do our own things and that we’ll be back very soon.

No can do. He was still very angry.

But I apologised profusely through smses and Daryl even wanted to come down and say sorry to my dad. I think that softened my dad abit. Heh.

Daryl came to get me with his car and we were like smuggling humans, Kai-Lin came out of his car and hurriedly ushered me into Daryl’s car. After a quick goodbye peck, I jumped into Daryl’s car and we sped off.

AND THEN..

His petrol light was blinking. Fuckanathan.

He thought the tank could tahan until we reached Johor. Die die also don’t want to pay in Singapore dollars.

But he thought it’d be best to pump at least $10 so that even if he got lost in Singapore, at least he wouldn’t be stranded stationarily in the middle of nowhere in Singapore.

We turned into some industrial park in Tuas and it was factory after factory and MORE factories. So he just took a random left turn after driving for fifteen minutes and swerve his car to the other lane, sort of a U-turn but definitely broke a lot of Singapore rules with that stunt of his.

We slowly drove to the checkpoint and prayed that the car would chug along. After coming out of the Johor checkpoint, we kept our eyes out for a rest area.

We saw a Petrol station but it was on the other side of the road. ARGHHH.. and his light was still blinking furiously. We drove on a little bit more and saw a rest area sign. HALLELUJAH!!

We took the next left turning, thinking that it would lead us to the petrol station.

Mahai, it was another long highway. So long that we couldn’t even see where it ended. He drove for about 2km and said, “Jo, I don’t think my car can go on any longer.”

Before I could react, he did a THREE POINT TURN IN THE MIDDLE OF THE HIGHWAY and drove all the way out on the emergency lane, all the while pressing his horn hoping to warn oncoming traffic. Lucky for him, for that 2km stretch, there weren’t any cars and we managed to get back on the highway that we were on originally. LOL. I only realised that I was biting on the sleeve of my jacket when we turned back out to the highway. Hahahaha.

What an adventure.


The two bikinis on the right are from that Sheer Romance shop. If I am not mistaken it is at Far East Plaza. Yup, they were for my Redang trip.(I used up my entire memory card for that trip. Hahaha to your broadband.)


And I bought this beautiful pearl bracelet for $5.


I LOVE IT. Brenda was telling me that they sell alot of it in Gurney Plaza, Penang for RM10. But I think this one looks much nicer. 🙂
