On Tuesday, after the worst of the papers was over and done with, a bunch of the classmates decided to make a day trip to Penang to watch Pirates of the Caribbean and have dinner there.
You can’t imagine how happy I was for a break in my mundane routine of studying, surfing the net, eating, sleeping, taking exams, studying, surfing the net..etc. Can go crazy I tell you.
But important things first! Before we proceed with the 56k killer’s trademark amount of photos… I’d like to show you something I bought from Penang. It’sÂ been nearly 5 days now and the love is still there.:)
Wanna take a guess?
MAC!!! MY FIRST EVER MAC PRODUCT!!
I got myself some liquid foundation because my one and a half year old L’oreal cashmere is better off in the dustbin. That gunk is so dried up that I look extra wrinkled with that thing on. Highlighting every pimple wound and peeling skin. Ugh.
I am so in love with my MAC foundation. This is the first time I’m touching it in real life. I usually caress my magazine advertorials. Sighs. RM103 well spent I tell you.
I tried the foundation when I got home and it just blended seamlessly with my skin and I WAS SO HAPPY DAMNIT. I’ve finally found a good foundation that I am truly happy with.
Oh kill me. I bought myself this Club Stila Lip Glaze Palette. It was 6 colours and is apparently a limited edition. I am not a die hard fashion addict to the point where I am in touch with the season’s latest collection…so I was only in love with it because of the colours. RM125 for the record.
I KNOW it’s crazy that I could splurge on two BRANDED make up products in one day. But do keep in mind that the last time I bought make up(even the super cheapo ones) was at least two years ago!! How utterly embarrassing.
And I’ve never ever bought branded make up for myself in my entire life.
So why not start now?
Will add to my miserable collection in 2008. 🙂 Every two years I shall allow myself to splurge on something grand.
yes yes.. so they say Stila products aren’t the best around.. but their packaging is absolutely gorgeous. I don’t even have to use it. I can just use it as an ornament on my dresser and it still serves a wonderful purpose!
They smell absolutely divine. In a fruity kind of way.
These are the lighter shades…very very pretty. I tried on some colour.. and the gloss was SO NICE AND THICK and it made my lips looked plumper.
A bird actually flew in to my room and wouldn’t go out.
Me and my ingenious way of chasing the bird out.
Me aiding the bird’s escape.
ALRIGHT ALRIGHT..I’ll start on the Penang photos already. Just a couple more photos… I know some of you will just scroll down and miss some photos. So I shall force this nice ones on to you before you proceed.
This was taken by Brenda. Alot of people said that it gives this nostalgic feeling what with the old window and the potted plant. Apparently I’m waiting for my lover. According to Yee Hou, it looks more like I’m waiting for my next customer. -_-
LOL this was damn funny. As you can see it’s a street corner.. so there were some motorists who stopped to let some cars pass. I was doing this pose, looking up at the street lamp, and ALL the motorists followed suit and looked up at the same street lamp wondering what the hell I’m looking at. LOL LOL. My classmates who were standing from across the road laughedÂ their heads off.
Joe was kind enough to drive Brenda, Lie Yuen and me down toÂ Penang to join the others.
What do you doÂ during a 45 minutes journey?
Right, this is the officially my fourth time in the Pearl of The Orient. 🙂 I have yet to really go around and eat Penang food.
Brenda said that this McDonalds is the meeting point for the girls’ schools and the boys’ school. 🙂 How sweet.
Upon reaching Gurney Plaza, we were distracted by stalls after stalls.
And cute moo-moo plushies.
Joe and Me.
We had lunch at Kim gary’s. My taste buds were buzzing with recognition at the familiar taste of delicious yet sinful Kim gary dishes. This would be Brenda’s dish. Can’t remember names of food for nuts.
Joe’s nissin noodle..I think.
The heavenly cheese baked rice. I love you long time.
L-r: Xin Yi, Brenda and Pei Zhi. Behind them would be Joe.
See the pretty cards and bags? 🙂

Even empty boxes can be such pretty things.
Obligatory toilet mirror camwhoring.
This was when I bought my MAC foundation. I was so intimidated by the brand. I thought they would’ve kicked me out of the shop or screamed at me and told me that I wasn’t even worth layaning. 🙁
It’s the fastest cosmetic shopping I ever did though.
I asked the sales girl, “Hi.. I’m looking for a liquid foundation. Something casual..”
She told me that there were two types but took the least scary one for me to try. I immediate liked it and said, “Okay! I’ll take this one.”
All under 3 minutes. Keng leh!
The expression on the boy’s face is so apt! It’s like he’s doing the sweat emoticon thinking what the hell are these stupid girls doing.
Went to Maggie T to SS. Kena marah-ed by the sales girl.
After the movie(which was really thrilling, that Pirates of The Caribbean 2), we went to Parkson to get my Stila Lip Glaze so called limited edition. Apparently I bought the last set in the entire malaysia. (ya right).
I was debating with myself because it was totally unlike me to splurge like that. I mean, it should be okay right? Since I am not always like that? This being the first time and all?
You gotta love the pretty packaging, honestly.
The eyeshadows are alright. I quite like the baby blue ones. Very shimmery!
And the pretty faux metal packaging for their compact powders.
Here’s Brenda and Lie Yuen camwhoring with the mirrors at the Stila counter.
I was hooked.
Brenda got a makeover from the Stila lady.
Poor Joe. 🙁
She loves this shot.
And I like this shot.
l-r: Me, Stila Lady, Brenda
We had quite abit of bad luck looking for a place to eat. Driving to three places only to find that they were all closed.
After 45 minutes of driving around, we settled on Little Shanghai. It’s a steamboat+bbq buffet restaurant. Very authentic and the business was thriving!
Check out the old school entrance.
And the old school windows.
We went to the top floor to eat as it was empty. Not as crowded as downstairs. It wasn’t stuffy because they had so many fans, which lead to the messy state of my hair as you will see in the following photos.
Pei Zhi and the old school kettles containing the soup.
Brenda climbing up the old school stairs.
The selection was o-kay.. but not in abundance.
And there were also seats inside the restaurant which I think would’ve been pretty stuffy.
They had herbal eggs too! Didn’t take any though.

THe other table.
So nice right? With the windows wide open, drinking the steamboat soup and joking with your friends, sort of a perfect way to end the worst of the exams.(the exams are not done with yet, by the way. Still got a practical session to go, and as for me, I was called for a VIVA examination for my biochemistry paper because I got a borderline fail for it(D) and they want to raise my D toÂ a C in order for me to pass myÂ first year. To get a VIVA examination, a student will have to one or two borderline fail with a pass in the other papers. So IN a way I’m relieved. IN A WAY.
Those who failed a few of their papers would not be given a chance to have the VIVA, which is an oral examination, but will have to resit the failed papers early september or late august. So IN a way I’m lucky, but I’m pretty depressed.
Corn in the soup.
hehehhe check out Lie Yuen’s face.
I LOVE STEAMBOAT!!! *heartheart*
Part of the crowd..
So simple yet delicious.
Too delicious. I overate.
See my messy hair and my prawn eating pose.
Dirty hands! I was going to wash my hands when Chee Wen took this photo of me.
HAHAHAHAH why so many bodoh shots of people eating..
Andy the steamboat connoisseur.(sp?)
Chee Wen and his Ice-cream.
Me and my orange popsicle.

Lie Yuen and Brenda with their popsicles.
All 18 of us!! Only Steffie and Ken are the odd ones out, as they are from the pharmacy course. Hehehe. But they are still included in our activities, no doubt. Nice people, they are.
This part was so exciting! We were to take the ferry back to the mainland and then back to Sg. Petani.
but since it was a pretty long wait, we got out of the car and camwhored abit. This is me and Lie Yuen.
Me being amazed at the cars attempting to fit into the ferry. And I KNOW. I also don’t know why my boobs so scarily huge here. Ahem. It’s not usually like that. It’s the effect of that silly turtleneck sleeveless top. Always bluff people one.
l-r: Joe, Lie Yuen, Brenda.
Brenda coming in for the act.
We couldn’t go into the ferry because it was too full… so we had to wait for another 40 minutes. And what better way to spend that 40 minutes??
Finally we got onto the ferry. Such an experience!
More camwhoring..sorry sorry.
Ehehe. Thanks Brenda.
Whee.. I did’t even know my hair’s so long already. NEED TO CUT HAIR!!
One with the passing ship.
Can you see some jelly fish bobbing around?
The pretty lights over on the mainland.
See how far the ferry extends to.
The dock? Is this what it is called? Some platform thingie I don’t know..?
Love the lights. ANd the slowly descending ramp.
Well, that’s all folks. Hope you guys managed to load all the photos. Didn’t mean to be such a pain in the ass ..BUT I CAN’T HELP MYSELF WHEN I HAVE MY CAMERA WITH ME…:(
