To Friendship :)

It's always fun no matter what activities we do with our friends. Especially those cherished one. It didn't even matter whether the original plan was followed or not, even if things get out of control, simple back up plans would cheer us up. No matter what, you are not alone in this world :). Friends are what keep us accompany, and truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave even, and of course impossible to forget.

My friends will be what I miss the most when I'm off to UK for my degree studies. Many might have wondered, why am I, an average girl, stays single for so long? The thing is, single is not a status, and you don't need a boyfriend or girlfriend to spice things up in your life, oh well you may say that I would eventually need one in the future, but now? In my current state? I'm only barely twenty years old, and still studying, not even working yet to support myself, and there's still so much more to life! 

Oh let me add, friends are forever, if they make it into your future, there's always a reason for it so hold on to your friends and never let go, second chance doesn't come often :), and if those friends never make it to your future, what can I say? At least they left a footstep in our memories :), something for us to ponder on and reminisces in. Therefore, I would always put family and friends on top of my list :). Just some food for thought anyway before I begin another blog entry after a few weeks of absence :).

It doesn't matter what your definition of friends are, it could be..

your loving and blur brother :),

your best friend forever, or most commonly known as BFF :),

people you get along with despite having contrasting personalities,

people you crossed path with from different walks of life,

and precious people who will always be on your mind.

See, friendship has a very wide scope of definition, it's really unlike any other relationship, particularly the boy-girl relationship, you know what I mean. Friendship is forever :).

So ya, just a food for thought.

To Friendship, people, to friendship :)!

Penang with law-lipops

Guess where I spent my last weekend :) PENANG YO!

Party rock is in the house tonight (:, everybody just have a good time!

Haha, I don't know why we chose that particular day to have a road trip to Penang, the 4th of June. It was a public holiday, a school holiday and also my semester break. What are the odds right lol? On the day itself, Zhe & Jon fetched me and then we headed to Kelana LRT to board the LRT to the Taman Jaya Station to meet James. James drove us to campus to meet up with the rest, by 8.30am, we started our journey.

Many things happened throughout this trip and not all were really nice to say it here XD So ya, what happened in Penang stays in Penang. It was a pure food-booze-slacking and time wasting trip.


We stopped in Ipoh for Hor Fun Soup and the White Coffee. Went to both Nam Heong and Sun Yuan Foong :). I'm sure you have heard of these two shops as they were kind of like the trademark of Ipoh. We didn't take pictures of the food though.

Then, we continued our journey to Penang, reached there and checked in to our dodgy and worthless hotel, thank God it was clean, that's really all I'm asking for lol. We had our dinner in Gurney Drive (: Dinner consisted of Char Kuey Teow, Fried Chicken Skins, Oyster Omelette, Pasembur, Chendol and Popiah. In my opinion, the Fried Chicken Skins triumphed among the bunch (: The rest were edible and average :). 

After dinner, we hung around in Gurney Plaza and then headed back to the hotel for booze night. The guys really bought liquor to do their own mixing in the room, so ya I think the story for that night shall stop here (:


lawyers (ALMOST!) on the beach :)

Breakfast was provided in the hotel, so we ate in the hotel, and then headed off to Lorong Selamat for round two. Char Kuey Teow by the sisters duo was where we were headed. Waited for a bit, and honestly? I don't see anything special bout their Char Keuy Teow. To me, it's just well... a plate of Char Kuey Teow. Oh well, it's just an opinion anyway :)

After Char Kuey Teow, then it was Chendul time, the Penang Road Famous Chendul. I'm not a big fan of Chendul. therefore I didn't try. However, it looks nice and my mates enjoyed the Chendul a lot! The sun was burning and we decided to hang around in Queensbay Mall after Chendul.

Did some shopping and raid Austin Chase + Chatime :). The highlight of the day happened after Queensbay Mall :D We went to the Tanjung Bungah Beach and spammed Rach's camera. Enough said, a lot of pictures were taken :D. There were not many with me inside though :P Wasn't in the mood to camwhore like REALLY REALLY A LOT!

After the beach, it was time for NASI KANDAR LINE CLEAR! 

Rach and I at Nasi Kandar Line Clear :)

This place is famous for their nasi kandar, but I don't like to eat there. I can never dine in a place this dirty, I lose my appetite instantly. Not even if they are so nice and well- known. I still prefer Original Kayu Nasi Kandar ;).

Then it was BOOOZE NIGHT AGAIN! I can't stop emphasizing on how funny that night was. The way Amar acted just to make everyone drink XD.

Self explanatory much :D


Breakfast in hotel then BOOOOOOO OFF WE WENT TO THE LAKSA IN PASAR AIR ITAM :). DAMN A LOT OF PEOPLE WEH! Ok la cut the crap, I still prefer my mum's laksa lol. Now you know why I can never be a food critics, because I'm TOO PICKY AND I CRITICIZE too much :). Therefore I shall not emphasize too much on the food yo!

Walked around for a bit and sent Lena off at the airport before leaving Penang :). Had our lunch in Onn Kee Beansprout Chicken Rice in Ipoh. It was like a meal from heaven! I think we were too hungry ba hahaha! Wanted to have the Tau Fu Fah from Funny Mountain but it was sold out :( SAD! 

Off we went to buy gifts from the biscuit shop named Sin Eng Heong in Ipoh and then we left :). It was a long journey way home, the guys made a stop at my humble abode. The first thing Josh did in my house was checking into Foursquare while the rest were dying to pee lol. Oh ya, and we kinda camwhored for a bit :P

Guys, thank you so much for year one and also everything, I'll miss you guys soo sooo much :'). See you guys soon!

That's all for my Penang trip! I shall plan my holiday wisely now.

Sky Bar, Traders Hotel KL

I must say, I'm surprised the blogging mood is back in such a short time. Probably because I met my bestie, May today (: Words can't describe how much I've missed her and now that she's back, we started off slow and spent the whole day together. Oh well, since I've just started back on blogging, I shall use pictures as the foundation of this post :).

Brunch : Restaurant Jin Xuan HK Dim Sum

I picked May up from her house at around 11.30am and then we headed to our first stop, the Damansara Jaya branch :P. She had all the prawn dimsum while I had the fried loh mai rice that I've been craving since last night. We had so much to catch up on, it felt like I've never been this talkative since ages ago. No pictures were taken during brunch, because let's face it, this particular restaurant has been blogged to death with positive reviews, they need no introduction here anymore. PLUS, May and I didn't bring any camera, we were relying on my phone to take good pics for Sky Bar during tea time LOL!

Tea Time : Sky Bar, Traders Hotel

It was like any other working days, KL was congested to the max, cars were sluggish on Jalan Kuching, ya I took the long route to KLCC lol and I don't know why. Jammed for an hour and finally reached KLCC. I was thinking the best route to Sky Bar is to park at KLCC and get to Traders Hotel via the open air KLCC park. You got it right, we walked under the hot burning sun towards Traders Hotel, and by the time we got there, clothes were kinda wet lol.

Right, cut the crap :). So, right on the 33rd floor of Traders Hotel, lies this relaxing jewel of the hotel.

Sky Bar.

It does not just have areas for guests to dine and drink, it also has a clear swimming pool :)

Awesome ain't it? I saw some 'ang moh' dove in and swam laps while I was chilling with May from our seats. You know what, we were the only Chinese there, the rest were 'ang moh' lol.

There, all 'ang moh' XD

Ain't both of us a lucky pair? On a day without booking, not only we got a good table, they are also having a promotion titled 'For Her' (:, it features a selection of any 2 cocktails for only RM48++ from any of the five cocktails listed on the flyer which can be seen on every tables.

This is the place where the magic of drinks mixing happen (:

Our Kapitan Treasures

It was refreshing, you will like it if you were sweating like mad due to the hot weather.

We spent about an hour and a half there just chilling, playing with iPad and..

well..napping :P

The rest of the day were spent window-shopping in KLCC and then raiding the SS2 night market for food and drinks (: Had so much fun doing everything with May, can't wait to hang out with her again.

On the other hand, Sky Bar is a really relaxing bar, I don't mind going there again.

Freedumb (:

Sorry for the long hiatus peeps, I've absolutely no idea when I'm going to update a proper post on this precious blog of mine. Finals was sucking the life outta me, that explains the long hiatus :S Today marks the first day of my holiday. I spent it doing LAC duty in Taylor's. What can I say, I have Taylor's phobia now.

Dear bloggy, I've so much to update you on, but words can't really fit everything into one post for what happened in the past month. Too much has happened, be it good or bad. More is gonna come for the next few months. Hopefully the big guy up there will bring me through everything for I know and I believe :).

Although I wasn't actively blogging for the past month, I have been updating myself a lot on my Twitter ( and my instagram (jolyn91). Until I can collect my thoughts and find my inner peace again, the quality of my posts will remain at this standard, saddenng huh :S?

Trust me, I'm (almost) a lawyer. -- says the shirt :P
