Melanie came to Penang and fetched me to places today (Actually, Kent drove). I was still feeling drowsy when she called as I was sleeping after came back from work. As soon as I got into the car, I suddenly became less sleepy.

Yes, I have been lazy in updating again. I don't blame anyone for my laziness but I am living a bat life for five nights. That's because I am working in night shift and I sleep during the day and work during the night. But that doesn't mean I can excuse myself from blogging right? :)
So what do I think about working nights? I think it is quite interesting because it is way quieter in the night and the work pressure is less felt. I enjoy it. The downside is of course I have to sleep during the day which is not so normal. I am slowly adjusting to the shift and I have another two nights to go before going into afternoon shift.
It's going to be payday again soon! I love my work. :)

Elaine took me to a new place for food today. After watching The Loan Shark, we headed to a place with claypots.
From the top left: Claypot 'Hong Bak' Pork (Nyonya style), Brinjal with minced meat and Thai style tofu.
It tasted like the usual Thai style tofu from other places.
This one is special. I had so much potatoes and I thought they put a little too much potatoes. I later found out Alfred and Elaine didn't manage to eat the potatoes. Oops!
My favourite! Quite delicious and it reminded me of Poh San's cooking.

The trailer of Love is the Only Answer.
There's a little influence from My Sister of Eternal Flower at some point of the movie.
I am in love with Orange. I have an orange phone and I recently bought two litres of Orange-fragrant body shampoo and now I am looking at an Orange pillow.
Maybe I should paint my car orange too.

Barley is believed to be a preventive cure for cancer and cardiovascular disease as well as Type 2 Diabetes.
The origin of barley. This is how a barley plant looks like. It's wonderful to know that each grain has a priceless value for deterring deadly diseases.
The grains freshly plucked from the plant. This grains look very different from the regular Ipoh barley grains that I see. Hmm...
Look! These grains look more familiar, don't you think?
Another shot of the grains with a human touch to it.
Barley stew with onions and carrots. This picture makes me go hungry.

Two days ago, I celebrated Elaine's birthday with Alfred and we went to Bar B Q Plaza for dinner. The initial plan was to go to a claypot place but it was unfortunately closed. What a luck the birthday girl had.
Look at the array of pork and vege on the large plate.

I was back in Ipoh for a while to get my certs and I spent some time playing with the Elles. They slept more than play. I let them into the house for almost one and a half hours and they slept like babies.
Dozing off into wonderland.
They sleep nose to nose.
Speaking of dogs, here is a cute video of a dog jumping into the water. SPLASH SPLASH!!!
I had an adventure today. I left my purse together with my bus ticket in it in the car which my sis had driven to college and my dad drove like Batman to get to her college so that I could retrieve it.
Made it in time to the bus station but the bus was not there yet. Then at 4pm, when the bus was about to move, an old lady said she left her luggage and went down to retrieve it but it was actually inside the luggage compartment on top of her seat.
Finally reached home at 8pm and now I am sitting in front of the laptop typing my adventure. There was a bit more to it about how I met a Chinese Indonesian lady who spent 10 days in Penang and how sardine-packed the Rapid was. Good thing I got a seat or else I would be sandwiched by the people.
Tomorrow will be another day of work. I am getting used to it and hope I make less mistakes. Hehehe...
