Chicken Chop Dinner & The Grouse Grind, Cyprus Point and Mongolian Grill

Friday, September 5, 2008


Before I start, I just have to point out...

Don't you think it's fairly interesting that the Top Visiting Countries visiting my blog is inclusive of United Arab Emirates??? Haha. Weird.

Also, I've got awesome news!!

I'VE LANDED A JOB AT HAPA!!
(Yep, where Jay works... except no cooking for me, more of serving the cooked food)

Haha. I don't know if I should be too happy too soon but I did a 9 hour shift (training; thus the long hours) and I survived so heck yeah!

And hoo boy, waitressing is NOT AN EASY TASK!!

I've never done waitressing before (and was never looking ever to do it in Malaysia since... ignorance is honestly bliss when you're eating in Malaysia) and I think this would be a great experience.

Plus, it's not such a bad thing working at a hip place known for good-looking staff ;)

Being a full-time student and having a part-time job, makes me feel so grown up and independent! :)

Just hope I don't end up screwing up my grades or getting fired... FINGERS CROSSED!

Moving on....

Erik was lucky enough to savor another one of my glorious cooking!

After a quick grocery shopping, it's time to do some work!

For once, Erik's doing more than just chopping!

MMmmmmmMm!! I have no shame in liking my own food, haha.

And in case you're wondering about the bruise, well... Erik was upset that the potatoes were overcooked....

PARDON MY IMPRUDENCE, FAIR ERIK!

The Grouse Grind, Cyprus Point & Mongolian Grill (31st of August, 2008)

Tracked up the Grouse Grind, an evident challenging track, and indeed it was!

For the first quarter, I was practically collapsing. My lungs were BURNING from the cold, dry air that I was obviously unfamiliar with.

It's definitely 10x easier to track in Malaysia's humidity but after a while... as I got used to the air, I had no burning lungs to blame for my incredibly slow pace except for my aching muscles ;)

The lugger and the lugged.

Half-way mark! Goodness gracious, it took FOREVER to get to this mark... FOREVER!!


A short clip to show how in shape I was in:



HEHE.

I swear I was honest-to-goodness exhausted to the core but a poser will pose... regardless.

And after a grueling 88 minutes, we reached the top!!!

So Erik's personal best is 45 minutes but due to an extra lugging of some extra weight, it may have set him back a little.

If I was in better shape (like some 2 years ago), I'd definitely be able to do it under an hour but... bah, I'm a flimsy wreck now.

Beer, Iced Tea, Fries & Seafood Chowder really hit the spot!

Erik's two favourite drinks; a poser water and a belly maker.

Gliding! So coooool. Something I'd definitely want to try out eventually.

The crazy line-up! Yes, everyone's worked out enough... their lazy bones is catching up to them. But for Erik and I, we are using this only because it's DANGEROUS to track back down... so slippery and all.

And since we didn't snap pictures at Cyprus Point the last time, took a short detour to do it now!

Only so Erik can add to his collection of pictures under the file name, "Girls I've brought to Cyprus Point as a super cool pick up move".

So original, Erik.

We-ell, if he didn't get busted for taking every single girl he knew up here... it'd be more impressive.


Back down...

Check out my power ammo; a picnic blanket, a gold bag and a very attractive looking plastic bag.

We met up with Ian for super yums Mongolian Grill!
