Ulat buku

Dari dua tiga hari lepas bersemangat kemas rumah - ala spring clean - nak menyambut tetamu. Tengah kemas dan lap habuk di buku dan rak buku, ada book moth jatuh.

Hamde : Mummy, ulat buku!

Aduhai! Anakku nak UPSR nih.. camana...

Back in Malaysia!

Cinderella kan, ... Pi mai pi mai mesti la pukul 12 jugak di mana-mana pun..

Kesian pakcik teksi .. Risau dia bila habaq kat dia nak naik bas balik Sg. Petani. Masa dapat teksi di Lcct tu dah pukul 11.40pm. Sampai Hentian Duta pukul 12.20. Pakcik teksi tu memang pulun bawak...

Memang dah berkira-kira, mesti tak sempat ke Pudu, dan bas akhir dari Pudu memang pukul 12. Selalunya juga, ada bas dari Pudu yang akan singgah di Hentian Duta. Alhamdulillah, dapat 2 seat, dan bas (as usual) lewat.. Dalam tiket tulis pukul 12, bas mai pukul 1. Since it worked to my advantage, no complaints la kan, in fact syukur alhamdulilah, my calculated risk-taking paid off.

Some pics from the last day in Hong Kong, at the Avenue of Stars the night before, and at the Airport.. (Crazy airport! Will explain in another entry!)

Day 2 of Conference

Dah pandai sikit. At lunch break from 12.30 to 1.30 sempat pi pizza place semalam for quick lunch - nama punya la sedap : Casanova Pizzeria.. Hahaha. It's a take-away place. Pasta and burgers pun ada. Singgah makan dekat one small park. (Sapa-sapa nak pi Hong Kong boleh check senarai restoren/kedai makan yang diiktiraf dan ada sijil halal di website official "Discover Hong Kong" - http://www.discoverhongkong.com/eng/images/dine-drink/pdf/halal_List_Eng.pdf

Sakit pala x hilang lagi ni, mata pun obviously besar sebelah .. 

Some pics at the conference and on the way to the pizza place .. (Sempat snap!)

Attending Conference in Hong Kong

After my part-heard yesterday in Alor Setar I had to loiter around waiting for the cd of recordings of the trial. So I end up leaving Alor Setar at about 4. Managed to get some work done and letters printed at the Bar Room in between, Alhamdulillah. 

I reached Sg Petani at 5.30.. My travel agent was panicking. We quickly booked tickets and accommodation.  Chris learnt a few things from me! Haha! She said the way I was so cool (of course that was just her impression! She didn't know my insides were numb!) was as if I was driving to Hong Kong instead of taking the next flight at 9.55pm! 

I left Chris's place almost at 6 something, she was seriously shooing me away... Poor thing. I detoured to Hassani to buy currency before leaving to Penang Airport. Arrived just in time, and still managed to have a quick bite at Mc D. 

After a refreshing shower (SGD10, towel provided) at transit in Changi's Rainforest Lounge, I made it to Hong Kong at 10.25am on 5/7. I felt great. And then things went a bit unexpected. Leaving Lantau Island on the airport express to Central/Hong Kong, and then taking the MRT to Causeway Bay somehow took forever, getting out from the rapid transit system onto the road and after that queuing for taxi was even longer, and the end result was reaching the venue well after lunch.. Sigh..very disappointing indeed. 

What's great however was the view from the hotel and the fact that though the room was small as expected (it's Hong Kong!), there was a Muslim pizzeria and fruit/flower/vegetable market just around the corner! So dinner was a huuuuge piece of pizza (sorry, no pic ;-)) and an apple. Grocery and Watsons was practically next door, and the great Times Square was 5 minutes away to walk to. Not bad for a first time in HK!

Well, here are some pictures..

Pappa oh Pappa.

Sometimes just taking time for a drink with dear friends adds meaning to life...
