I’ve connected my modem to Li Shen’s computer and here I am, printing out all the notes I lost and blogging what I’ve procrastinated to blog about.
On the 30th of December LAST year, Justin, Chee Kiang, Daryl, Pei Sze and I took a spontaneous trip up to Genting at 9pm.
It felt so exhilarating when Daryl wound the windows down and the cold air rushed past my cheeks leaving my cheeks to feel like cold metal. As we approached the darker parts of the road up, I was astounded by how visible the stars were in the night sky. That’s because we are high above the city and usually the lights from the city are brighter and you don’t get to see a clear night sky like this often. I was just putting my head out of the car going, “ooooooohhhhhhhh…..!”
We arrived at the peak at about 11pm and beneath the glow of every streetlamp, you could see the illuminated mist rushing up the sides of the streetlamp. It was a coldddd night.
Can you believe we went all the way up just to have a cup of coffee at Coffeebean?!

These mad people ordered Ice Blended for that extra kick. The hot chocolate’s mine by the way. 🙂
Nice photo! But my EYES. WHY DO I ALWAYS TO BE LIKE THIS WITH THE CAMERA.

Can you see how misty it was outside?
We took a stroll down to First World. This was on one of the many escalators down. Oh god, my eyebags. Genting would be the 3rd night out of four nights that I’ve returned home at 2.00am.
Saw some nasty looking chocolate coated strawberries that was just downright disturbing. Can you see what I saw? We have to be on the same wavelength to get it, dude..

Now on to how I spent my new year’s eve..
Ck and I had dinner at Subang Parade before heading down to KL Sentral to “decide where to go”. We were torn between Bukit Bintang or KLCC. The roads were surprisingly relatively clear that night as we made our down to KL Sentral.
There were guards ensuring that traffic between the trains were smooth. It did not even feel like New Year’s eve! Everything was so organised!
We ended up in KLCC and spent the better part of the night chilling at Coffeebean and analyzing every single detail in Juice(the magazine) and we now have a good idea of where to check out the next time we go out. 🙂 Speaking in cantonese to kutuk a bunch of rowdy non-cantonese speaking family sitting behind us and coming to a conclusion that peppermint candy cane is not very nice.
We lepaked at Coffeebean until about 11.30pm before making our way down to the park. Ohmigod, double chin. *scribbles in New Year’s resolution list*
One of my best shots of the twin towers!
A view from Coffeebean’s window. Those are human beings down there!
So cute..got people sitting on top of the tiny hill.
I wanted balloons pretty badly because I’ve always had a penchant for helium balloons.
We were actually searching and searching for helium balloons but could not find any.
“Will you be okay if we really can’t find balloons?” Ck asked.
“Haiyoh, of course la. You think I’ll cry issit?” I said.
“Com’n, I’m 18 already!”
“O-kayy!” he was doubtful. LOL.
The crowd was getting excited when the fireworks started. OH yes! Bumped into Joshua there as well!
I should stop captioning every picture and just leave it to speak for itself.
New Year’s eve paraphernalia!
After the fireworks, the city was left looking smokey.
We finally found balloons!! Yay!! Hahaha. Ck bought me five balloons!
A stairway of balloons!
My five balloons! Hahaha. So happy I was like the only one walking around with that amount.
Going home was so fun because it was jam packed in the LRT. I mean when you experience the sardine tin effect once a year it is quite fun actually.. I was not the only crazy one bringing balloons in. hehe.
I walked past the guard at the ticketing counter and he was like, “Moi arrr..mana boleh bawah masuk dalam, banyak orang ooo!” Haha.. and I was like, “hehe, boleh laaa..”
Me and my many balloons!
As you can see, one of my new year’s resolution would be to clean my room.
Well, I had a great new year’s eve.:) 🙂 🙂 🙂
