变胖了!

人家说去外国留学会胖回来,我以前说我不会的!可是现在我要三思了…

由于一直相信着“你现在不吃的话,去到那里就没得吃”,我现在一直不断地在吃东西,加上完全没有做运动,我的体重和肉在节节上升。

救命啊!!!

最近看到了一些报道:

笑容

我的笑容,你在哪儿?
我的酒窝,你在哪儿?
咪咪的眼,弯弯嘴角,你在哪儿?
那圆圆的两托肉,你们又在哪儿?

我笑不出来,不能…
已经没有理由让我去笑了…
心情灰灰的,眼睛想下雨…

我把事情简单化了。
祈求太高太多,只会换来更大的失望和痛苦。

我不要去想这件事,可是她在不知情之下一直在谈这件事…
我需要一打周星驰的笑片,和一件防弹衣。

金宝的味道

搭着槟城的巴士,到了怡保车站转车回金宝。

眼看只有那残旧的风车(没有冷气,开窗的巴士),可是为了可以快点到家,我就上了。

虽然巴士的窗开着,可是炎热的天气,阳光照射到巴士里,使到巴士内的空气闷热,就像坐在一个流动的烤箱里。就算坐在没有被太阳直射的座位,可是你还是会感受到那令人不舒服的气温,皮肤有点疼痛。

坐了35分钟的车程,终于到了务边再南下一点的地方。突然间我感觉到巴士里的温度有稍微降低了。大路旁两排高大的树把阳光档住了。不热之余,还吹来了一丝微风。

这就是乡下地方了。有浓密的草林,高大的树木,水果季节时候,路旁还摆满了摊子卖水果,这些情境在大城市看不到。那里只有高楼大厦,闷热的空气和烦人的交通。

这些乡下自然清凉的空气,有多少人会欣赏?

我喜欢这感觉,我喜欢嗅金宝的空气。

金宝,我永远的家。

回忆

回忆,醒来时那冷到不想动,只想躲在被里的那7个早上。

回忆,那些丰富的南方早餐,馒头,白粥,水果…

回忆,和他们一起的时光。

可是,这8天回忆,造就了现在的另外一些回忆。8天的时间,发生了太多东西。

回忆,每个早上起来不用折被单,洗衣服,刷地的日子。

回忆,不用下太多厨房的日子。

回忆,不用扫地的日子。

最可怜的是婆婆,活在回忆她的日子中,为什么那么相信她,为什么那么从容她。

初次的背包旅行-越南

晚上10点,我的旅行就在我搭上这去吉隆坡的火车开始了。经过一次又一次的等待,我终于在第二天的早上10点到达越南的胡志明市了。到了机场,没有妈妈所说象征着共产国的五角星旗和镰刀旗。

从飞机场到范五老区大概是25分钟,VND100,000 (RM23)。找到了一家干净的酒店后,我就迫不及待出去了。在一家临近的旅行团哪儿签了第二天去古芝隧道的旅行团后,我就步行去统一宫。

虽然有着一本被誉为‘旅行圣经’的书-Lonely Planet (在中文里没有相关的名词,我就叫这本书为‘寂球’),一张刚拿到的第一区地图和一张完善可不完美的胡志明市地图,我还是走失了。一路上还担心这那些无处不在的小偷。我在附近有名的Bhen Than市场吃了一碗甜品后继续走。在雨中走路真的麻烦,幸好我带了雨伞。

走到了统一宫,因为午休时间,还要等到下午一点才可以进。参观了统一宫后,我去了临近的战争博物馆。如果有任何人去了这博物馆之后都没有任何的感觉的话,这个人的确有问题。我只能用伤感来形容我的感觉。过后我去了就坐落在统一宫正前方的法式教堂参观,感受一下充满了欧洲古老教堂的气息后,我再去教堂对面的建筑物参观,虽然我到现在还搞不清楚那时巴士车站还是火车站,可是我却被里面的古老气息给吸引住了。我步行回去酒店,享用了简单的越南晚餐配越南啤酒,再去喝了一杯越南咖啡后,我回去酒店休息。

第二天的早上8.30,我上了旅行社的巴士去古芝隧道。我做在一位Austria女士旁,我认得他,昨天我和他一起携手过了充满挑战性的马路。在越南过马路的规则是,别因为害怕而在马路徘徊或停在马路中,你应该要继续慢一点直走,让他们看到你然后躲避你。经过了两个小时的车程,我们终于到了古芝隧道。我很钦佩越共的创造力,智慧和不屈不挠的精神。为了胜利,他们竟然可以挖出一条这么厉害的隧道。下午3点,我回到的酒店,休息了一下后我就出去走走。晚上和白天刚认识的英国籍旅客喝东西。我不从洋,可是和外国人谈天可以让你打开眼界,知道他们与我们不同的想法。

第三天的早上,我坐摩多的士去了华人街。昨天导游说的话引起了我的好奇心而去华人街。他说,有杀狗杀猴子之类的东西。我在韩国的冬天看过无头去皮的整只生狗肉挂在街边的摊子上,杀狗倒是没看过。导游还说,那些猴子是活生生地坐在笼子里,露出头,然后再活生生地头被切开一半,再挖它活生生地脑袋来吃。昨晚认识的韩国人说狗肉的蛋白质很高,对身体很好。而导游说猴子脑袋对男生的‘健康’很好。要‘身体’好,吃蓝色丸子更好啦!幸好我只在一家餐馆外看到一些被关在狭小笼子里的田鼠,要不然真的给我看到杀狗杀猴的东西,我觉得PETA应该会加入一名活跃分子了。

买了咖啡和春卷皮,我在哪儿的一家水饺餐馆吃早午餐。餐馆的摆设简陋,陈旧。韭菜饺加一碗炸酱面,份量很多又好吃。果然是中国人开的,那碗面的份量足够我吃三餐了,也很有中国味。吃饱后,我坐了摩多的士回去酒店,放下战利品后就开始了我最后一天的观光。从范五老到历史博物馆是VND20,000,大概是RM5吧。比起槟城的吸血的士简直便宜得多了。历史博物馆真的很‘历史’,很多东西看,可是马来西亚的国家博物馆的装修好象好多了。博物馆的物品介绍有的很简单,例如一件历史铜制品,它的介绍就是“铜制品”… 我都知道啦,我需要的是更详细的资料,例如年份,哪里来之类的东西…这个博物馆应该满缺钱的吧,拍照准证的钱比入门票更贵,看表演也要额外票钱。

历史博物馆旁就是法国殖民地时代建起的东植物园。介绍书说,虽然动物围栏比越南动物围栏的指标好一点,可是不太建议我们去。为了省时间,我还是继续我的个人观光。我没头绪地向范五老的方向走,不到一分钟就发现到好东西了!历史博物馆的对面坐落着一间陈旧的建筑物。外面的旧战斗机和大炮吸引了我。门口外写着”Museum of Ho Chi Minh Campaigne”。原来是越共的博物馆,很有趣!进到里面,看到了以前和越共一起战斗的生锈机器,莲花池的中间竖立着一座越共胜利的木像。那时只有我和一名日本游客。下雨的中午,那博物馆显得更伤感,更寂寞。过后我再步行去另一间博物馆,吸引我的就是它那古老法式建筑物的设计。

为了在这土地留下更多的回忆,我选择走回酒店,可是我走错路了,结果走了1小时半才回到酒店。那天我的腿差不多要断了。那晚我吃了越南汤面后,走多几回就会酒店收拾了。

第四天的早上,我特别早起身。可是那早竟然范老五区停电,我摸黑冲量和收拾行李,过后我再去酒店的顶楼看早晨6点的越南市区。我有点依依不舍。如果身为一名投资者,在越南做生意不容易,很有挑战性,可是潜能很大。身为一名游客,如果你喜欢简单和历史,它绝对是一个值得你去的地方。

这只是一个简约介绍我去越南的经验。如果要我说的话,我想你至少要给我几个小时,再加上几杯啤酒或越南咖啡。

My first self-backpacking trip!

After a few months of consideration, at last I decided to go to Vietnam during the September semester break!
The most exciting thing is, I’m going alone! Yes, many of you might be saying I’m crazy, how can a girl going to travel alone? Tak takut mati ka?? Korean culture even noted that if a woman travels alone, most likely it’s a suicide trip!
For me it’s time to grow up, not depending on the travel agent, bringing us walk around like a duck farm owner chasing the ducks to go left or right, or being dragged to the souvenir places so they can earn extra money.
Booked a to and fro air ticket which cost RM320.00 totally. Now I have to plan for the route and budget hotel. But I know Vietnam is not a safe place *yet*, so I must be careful on my personal belongings.
Next time when I go home, I have to renew my passport which will expire soon.
Planning, planning and planning!!!

Kapas-Marang International Swimathon 2009

For the 1st time Evan, Soon Jiun, Zi Xiang, Min Fey, Soon Wen, Kar Keong, James and I followed Mei Juan to swimathon which was held at Terengganu. We swam from Kapas Island back to Marang. The whole distance is said to be 6.5km and time limit is 4 hours.

1st Day – Marang

Depart from USM Sports Unit at 9.30am in USM van. The journey was from Kedah-Kelantan-Terengganu. It was a road with many corners, turns, uphill and downhill. Although it made us dizzy but I kind of enjoy the beautiful scenery and the rural areas that we never see before. We arrived at Seri Malaysia Hotel in Marang at 5pm. We went out for dinner at 7.30pm at the seaside. We were able to see Kapas Island and all of us were shocked by the strong wave we saw! Mentally I was preparing for the worst.

2nd Day – Going to Kapas Island

Woke up at 7am and had breakfast in the hotel. We went to Marang Jetty at 9am and the registration just started. We have a pack of goodies, an orange swimming cap with our participations number on it, tags for our bags, and sign for an agreement. We went to Kapas Island on a boat and the boat ride was about 15mins. We see Marang mainland getting smaller and smaller. I wonder will I be able to make it because it’s so far away and the wave was very high and current is strong!

The sea water of Kapas Island is very clear. The preservation of the beaches and islands in Terengganu is obviously better than Penang one. After registration, putting luggage in our room, we went for a practice in the sea. We were able to see dying corals and fishes. We were more on exploring than practicing.

After having a very bad lunch, we went to snorkelling. Briefing was at 5.30pm. We were told that there are orange buoyant in every 1km as a straight line leading to the finish line and a big red ballon at the finish line. We were warned by the strong current, to our right at start and left after 2 hours, it’s not benefiting the swimmers at all.

Dinner at 7pm and all of us sleep at 10pm. We must take a good rest.

3rd Day – Swimathon

Can’t sleep, I can’t sleep… My heart was beating very fast due to concern. Waking up at 5am, I went for a breakfast and back to packing my stuff. We went for body marking and put our bags at the jetty. My heart is pounding very fast, excitement, concern, happy, sad, all together! But more to afraid. We can’t see any orange buoyant, organizer said that it has been floated away. So now we’re on our own to see (or guess) the finishing line. The gun shot marked the start of the race but SW and I waited till all the participants went down to the water and we started after that.

For the 1st 1km I think SW and I still sticking together and we see the mountain as a lead to the finishing line. But then his voice is gone, I guess now I’m all alone. Not thinking much about this, I keep continue swimming and the current keep drifting me away. At about 3km, I saw Pulau Kapas on the back of my right, that means I’m not swimming straight line, I was drifted to the left and swimming a big big round.

Swimming alone is scary. Imagination of the combination of all scary water monster movies I watched before like “Jaws, Piranhas, Deep Blue Sea” and the documentary shows about giant squids, sharks etc… I was thinking what’s going to attack me from the bottom or back. Anyway, I more concentrate of the finishing line and the mountain as a mark.

At about 3km you’ll be able to see the white tents where the finishing line is. By that time the mountain can’t be used as a mark anymore because it’s not accurate anymore. A lot of unknown things bites me all along the way. When SW was with me I still can tell him a lot of things biting me but without him by my side, I just can cursed these things in my heart and keep scratching while swimming freestyle. At 4km you’ll be able to listen to the MC on the shore talking. This convince me I’m near and keep swimming.

After about 2 hours of swimming, a man in front of me looked at behind and shouted to me “are you ok?” then we chat for a few lines shouting to each other. He said “we’re 30mins to the shore!” I was soooooo happy to hear that and then I keep swimming half sprinting hopefully I can catch up with him and swim to the finishing line. But he still seems far away swimming breast stroke and after about and hour I still haven’t reach any shores, the shores seems near but I never reach no matter how hard I swim. The friction of my swimming suit strap on my shoulder and armpits was getting pain and pain… I was thinking of giving up but I never quit… Never… But one of the reason is because no kayaks or help around me, so I can’t even quit as well, hehe…

I was kind of out of energy. Swimming freestyle in the end is hard because whenever I swam freestyle I got drifted away. I was swimming zip zap and it was wasting energy. Suddenly the sun is gone, covered by dark clouds. I must swim fast before weather turn bad and the race is stopped. Then I can’t be a finisher!!! I changed to breast stroke for half hour and when I really can see the shore is near, I use freestyle and my very last energy sprint to the end. For the 1st time the wave pushed me to the right location, the shore. I was so happy to be able reaching the shore, and ran to the finishing line. I was given a medal, 100 plus drink, mineral water, towel, t-shirts etc… and Mei Juan is the 1st one who came to greet me because she heard my name being mentioned by the MC. She took bath and her hair had dried. That means she arrived a long time ago LOL.

I saw SW too and we went to take bath. I’m very glad to see him like a missing friend a long time ago. After my bath, I also saw the man who told me “30mins swim”. Another missing motivator found. It rains heavily when I’m out of the chalet where we took bath. Ambulance came and I guess a swimmer was in trouble. During the prize giving session MJ was very busy going up to the stage receiving prizes and reporters surrounding her asking question and taking pictures. She was the winner of the category and fastest women swimmer, placing 7th in overall. I was placing 11th in my category. Such a waste because if I’m in top 10 I can get a prize, hehe..

We had our lunch and head back to USM at 2pm in heavy rain. This is a very good experience for me. It tells me how important team work, physically and mentally strength is. Without mentally strength, I think I won’t be able to finish the race swimming alone. Training is very important. Because of the water current, I think I’ve swam at least 8km. Damn… I never swam that much before. We were all very tired but happy. Everyone of us have different experience and SW is the most special. He had banana in the middle of the sea! LOL!

Congratulations to all USM swimmers as we all finish the race and MJ has the highest award. Thanks to USM who supported us so much in this race as well.
