Happy Birthday Malaysia !!!

Filed under: Events, History, Holiday, Miscellaneous — J Martin @ 12:00 am

It’s 16th September.

Malaysia was born on 16th September … not 31th August. The 31th August is merely the independence day of Malaya Federation … NOT Malaysia. Malaysia as a unified state did not exist until 1963 …

People should get the fact right …

Mee sup Tamparuli

Filed under: Food, Food Court, Holiday, Home — J Martin @ 10:37 pm

I guess this is the most famous food court at the tamu Tamparuli. Believe it or not, go ask the old ladies at the tamu. Located just nearby the famous Jambatan Tamparuli. Tamu Tamparuli, held every Wednesday. This food court has only small space, yet almost every second customers come and eat there. Some even willing to stand nearby to wait for their turn everytime the tables are fully occupied. Strangers sit together, they don’t/won’t care who they sit along with because the most important thing is that they can have a bowl of their favourite soup. I think the attraction comes from its low price menu and reputation. You can have a full bowl of soup and they will only charge you for RM3.50. Operated by two local Chinese ladies, assisted with their respective husbands and relatives.

My order of the day. Mi halus with chicken. Only manage to eat a portion of it because it’s too big for me. Next time I am going to order small size. But even the small size bowl is already too much, as I see it …

Programs of the whole holiday break

Filed under: Daily Life, Holiday, Home — J Martin @ 11:20 pm

Kg. Nahaba, Kota Belud.


First week;

  1. There was a family reunion combined with birthday party for my nephew and niece. However, three people were missing. Two brothers-in-law and one nephew.
  2. Going out. Not my plan actually, I was forced to accompany someone …
  3. My turn to give ‘talk’ on a religious seminar was brought forward because of complicating schedule. I was given part although I am not religious. Seriously …
  4. Attended friend’s wedding party. Six hours drive from my hometown. Four to five stops because of engine-related problem. Another wedding party on the same day at nearby village but we skipped it because we were on our way to the far-away wedding party. Far away party was the priority. Reason? More sight-seeing …
  5. Another wedding party. It’s wedding anniversary actually. My neighbor has her wedding anniversary on Saturday. I went there twice because the food was plenty and my neighbor was really generous ….
  6. Other wedding party on Saturday, on the same day with my neighbor’s. Didn’t attend it because it’s farther from home and I was already tired to go far.

Second week;

  1. Friends reunion. Not so much … Didn’t manage to meet all friends.
  2. Bought something for future. Fruit trees actually … to be planted on my already specified lot.
  3. Another wedding party. I didn’t go because I was too tired to go …
  4. Visit to a far-away church at Kg. Nahaba, Kota Belud. Around four to five hours drive from my hometown. Eyed someone there … hehehe. No contact whatsoever, but I got the pictures anyway.
  5. Roaming around aimlessly …

Third week;

  1. Most of the time were spent on getting myself ready for the departure …
  2. A little party for my departure …
  3. Departed to Penang …

Still counting ….

Most probably I am not going to update my blog for the next three weeks (or more) unless I have access to internet there … Probably I will be busy doing something else – more outdoor activities, more family gathering, more fests and so on …
