Friends Paying Me a Visit: Day 1

I will split the visitation into three parts to make me easier to organize my idea.

We (Shuzhen, GinHwa, Alan and I) departed from PJ at 7am with Hon Tong as driver (as usual). Then we stopped at Bidor to sample the well-known wantan noodle.



I didn’t find it very impressive. Not only that, it was dear too, cost RM5.50 for each normal portion. Practically I think we cannot find any normal food as expensive as this in the small town, Bidor.

We then continued our journey North and finally reached my home at 11am. We can never question Hon Tong’s driving speed and skill. Imagine that, we stopped for breakfast, filling in tyre air, and pumping petrol and peeing (a rude word I know) too. My mum had got ready with the lunch which was steamboat. We like to use this to serve guests or visitors (our culture perhaps). However, we couldn’t eat much as we were still quite full with the noodle just now.

After lunch, without resting or taking shower, we went shopping at Megamall in Prai. Then we made our way to sauna. We really ought to burn some calories as we knew we would eat a lot in the few coming days. Sauna was always fun for me, as I could save up the time of jogging hours to get the fat burnt in sauna for half an hour! However we did worry about Hon Tong as he is too thin for that. We were worried he would come out vaporized!



The furnace to burn the herbs


Hon Tong and Alan like this dog quite much


Some views at the sauna site

After the rejuvenating or tiring (see how your body responded) sauna, we went home to have dinner. Then my dad borrowed a boat from his friend to bring us to see fireflies at the nearby riverbank. We were screaming like hell as the river was pitched dark! And though my dad was sailing very slow, I still shouted to ask my dad to slow down even more! What a shame! My dad was once a fisherman but his daughter has hydrophobia =.= At times, the shadow of trees on the river rendered great illusions. With the trees swaying and with the water moving, it was like big wave pounding on us or the water level was getting higher. I was seriously scared, but after I saw the logic behind then only I was relieved.

We quite enjoyed the view, I mean the fireflies. The trees were like Christmas trees decorated with yellow shining light. My dad did catch some for us to see (damaging the environment). Later Alan and Hon Tong also got excited and rose up to catch some too.

We reached home at around 11pm with a worn out body as we didn’t rest since 6am. All of us went to sleep right after the shower.

And hence Day 1 ended…
