Hsien was the first to go to bed at nearly 6am. Chien and I were waiting for our hairs to dry so we stayed up a little bit more chatting. The both of us crawled into bed at about 6.30am but somehow I couldn’t sleep as I was distracted by the brightening sky. I’ve always wanted to witness a sunrise and with a view like this, how could I not snap a couple of pictures?
This is the first pic, taken at about 6.45am.
At about 7am. It turns out there the sun was being obscured by the clouds the entire day. Giving up, I crept back into bed.
Chien’s Mum fetched Esther and Mel who were staying on Friday to join us in KL but upon arriving at the hotel, the three of us were still sleeping like pigs. Esther and Mel just sat there and commented about our sleeping positions and analyzing us in detail.
I have a feeling today will be a Bad Hair Day. 🙁
Since Chien had to settle some stuffs, the girls and I spent the early part of the afternoon being educated about the proper ways to wear a bra. Oprah Winfrey is capable of magic. We also learnt that I’ve been wearing chicken fillets to enhance my cleavage all these while.
Today we were due at Sungei Wang for a shopping trip, hardly any photos because I believe I’ve taken enough pictures of Sg. Wang.
While waiting for Chien to return, we did a bout of camwhoring with the lovely view. Hair’s abit messy though.
l-r: Esther, Hsien and Mel.
Hsien and I.
This time around the shopping trip wasn’t all that great but I did manage to get two tops and a nice slinky skirt. Love slinky skirts.
We lost Chien for the better half of the trip but found her again in time to hit the designer shops. We kept cracking lame jokes at the designer shops. We were screaming at each other not to touch the dresses because we believed they would crumble into a pile of ash at the touch of our filthy fingers. Heehee. But we were not loud enough for Chien to hear because then she wouldn’t want us anywhere near her.
Once again, the drive back to the hotel was a horrendous KL type. I honestly don’t know how people manage to face the traffic day in day out. I’d just die. It was still entertaining watching Chien getting all frustrated not knowing exactly where she’s going. And we have Hsien who is known for her anal ways when it comes to scary driving.
Chien and Hsien were squabbling all the way and Hsien getting huffy. Mel, Esther and I were laughing so hard but we were trying to lighten up the mood by stupidly singing nursery rhymes at the top of our voices. Hehe, I won’t poke any more fun at Hsien’s inane reactions towards scary driving because she gets sensitive about it. Bleh. I must teach this woman to laugh at herself from time to time. I love you, though. I love you Lim Su-Hsien. Me loves you. *blow, blow*. Don’t burn yeah!
Went back to the hotel room to find another cute message from Chien’s mum. Hee hee, so cute!! We forgot to boil water again, apparently. Chien said it’s because she told her mum that I took a pic of the earlier one, her mum drew a bigger one this time to humour me.
We made reservations for The Ivy at Asia Heritage Row but I had to go for the Stila party before that. It is so damn convenient because the thing was held DIRECTLY opposite the hotel. What a wonderful coincidence. The event was held at Bliss The Lounge.
Chien kindly curled my hair for me.
Chien said I looked like a grandmother in this pic. 🙁
Hm, the top of my head is so flat, bleh. But thanks Chien!!
l-r: Fuzz, Leech, Mel and me.
Leech won the grand prize ok?? THE GRAND PRIZE. She’s my senior from school and she’s also an ardent contest participant. Sniff sniff, she gets the RM500 Stila cosmetics, RM500 Melinda Looi dress, date with the Midnight Bloom Gentleman AND the perfume!! And all I got was a crummy invite to the party.
We get free drinks! Some blue cocktail thingie with a lychee inside that Mel and I could not appreciate. Leech took the lychee/longan off me though!
The big hoo-hah. Nice though.
Mel and I doing what we do when we’re bored.
There goes my lychee/longan. Ngaum!:D
A view of the bar.
Mel met her friend from uni, Claudia.
Some nice Stila box glowing thingie at the corner of the room.
We had to leave by 9.45 and according to Leech, the thing didn’t even start until 10.30pm. It was supposed to end at 11pm. Malaysians.
A taxi stopped in the middle of the road during a red light and he beckoned us and offered us a ride to Asia Heritage Row for RM10. Mel and I ran helter skelter towards his taxi like mad women. I mean imagine two nicely dressed girls running and grabbing a taxi in the middle of a traffic jam. The mother fucker didn’t even turn into the Asia Heritage Row. Sheesh.
Here’s The Ivy, sorry for the crappy photo but I didn’t want to use a flash.
Mel and Esther.
l-r: Hsien, Chien and Me.
Mel, me, and esther.
Hsien and Chien.
My cumberland fish pie. Which made me abit sick. It’s not too bad, but you get jelak you know?
Esther looking pretty!
Hsien looks beautiful here! Chien looks cool. HAHAHA. ANd me, i just look spastic.
It took me a whole minute to figure out how the thing worked. Coooooooool…
After dinner we treated ourselves to some wine.
Before I knew it, I was at my 6th glass. According to them I had half the bottle. Somehow my glass just magically refilled by itself. I feel so bad. People, when I get my part time job, I’m treating you girls to wine. I’m not sure if I can say that I was officially smashed for the first time, but I did bump into a table and shocking the people at it and the girls held my hand as we walked to our car because I “kept tripping”. Didn’t lah, floor unstable! And I started crying while we were having an intimate conversation for no reason at all. Esther and I were saying the following day about how some people are damn talkative/damn quiet/damn angry/damn sleepy/start crying when they are drunk. Maybe I am the crying type!
Hsien and I.
Chun Guan, Ji Yang, Nigel and Kay Hong joined us at The Ivy for awhile before suggesting that we check out Bangsar. Chun Guan drove Chien’s car and I was just crying in the back of the car the whole way through. It’s just the tiny unhappiness of life that is so exaggerated with the help of a little alcohol, I suppose. I didn’t think Chien, Chun Guan and Esther noticed but when I got out of the car, Chun Guan asked, “Are you ok ar, Jolene?”
We arrived at Bangsar at two and everywhere was closed. So like the bunch of idiots that we always were, we stood around not knowing what to do. Stupid Ji Yang challenged me to walk in a straight line and I tried walking in a straight line at a high speed and slipped on someone’s vomit. UGHHHHH. Luckily I didn’t fall onto the puddle of puke. *box Ji Yang*
Us dumb-dumbs are camwhores too.
I cannot be left out. See my puffy eyes? Silly Jo. *shakes head*
We went back to the hotel at about 3am and I was still in a bit of a funk. I leaned against the wall of the elevator and there was this gweilo who was controlling the buttons and when all of us got in, the overload alarm went off. I grumpily said, “See? I’m TOO fat.” and then he actually replied and said, “Ah, no you’re alright!” and then he said, “So where you girls from?” And I grumpily spat again, “Ma-lay-sia!” and he laughed and said, “Oh alright, me too.” He had a nice deep voice though! He even said, “Goodnight ladies,” when we got off.
Mel said that I was smashed so I said that. I mean I wouldn’t have talked about how fat I was if there were other people in the lift. Don’t like to state the obvious.
Went to bed at 5am after chit-chatting.
The following day we went to KLCC so that Chien can get her nice flats. The indecisive woman.
But she’s happy, so we’re happy.
Camwhoring all the way home. My camera was getting warm.
Su-Mae and me. Chien said that her sister was scared of me because I kept disturbing her. I like disturbing kids because they are adorable. Nice girl, this one. Just extremely shy. Come, Aunty Jolene show you the ropes.
And there you have it, my stayover in KL. It was great fun.
