Bukit Tinggi Finale : Stepping Out In Faith

Seriously, mission to be pro-blogger: FAIL lah! -__- Can't even make sure I blog every other day decently haiks!

Life at work is a little crazy and I feel everything - work, social, church, personal life - life in general, is kinda jumbled... in a way. Sometimes I feel as if I'm wayyyy too free that I NEED to be with friends, go out constantly, just BE out, you know; some other times I feel as if life's happening wayyy too fast with too many things going on at the same time I couldn't cope. Why ah! Zzz!

Was supposed to be at my aunt's place for dinner before a meeting, but because of miscommunication and miscalculation of time, I couldn't make it to dinner without being late to the meeting, so ended up Jason went alone. When I came out from the meeting and SMSed my aunt to apologize and thank her for the food (she tapau-ed for me!), she replied back saying "you're welcome. it's not good to take food at odd hours, don't do it so often". And I. just. totally. broke. down =.= Trust me to do things like this. =__='''

Ah yi, this is a bit geli lah I know, but hey, if you're reading this, THANK YOU for everything! (erm of course, hi mom! hi grandma! THANK YOU too for EVERYTHING!!! :D)

Sigh. I *think* I need a holiday.

So let me quickly finish up the last batch of pictures from Bkt. Tinggi so that I can go dream about my next holiday now! Weeee!


At 7 in the AM, we were woken up by this...

The Vietnamese are having their morning service/praise and worship

How vibrant! They were all sweating and panting from all the singing and jumping but their spirit was SO high! Everyone was smiling jovially, singing with all their hearts, and dancing like there's no tomorrow in celebration of a God so full of grace, mercy, and love! I was so touched seeing them worshipping without a care of how others would think. I mean, that's how it should be, right? Jesus willingly died on the Cross for us because He so loved us! And yet all we can give is mere lip service, mouthing the songs week in and week out, standing there, refusing to move *shifty eyes* Do we even mean what we sing? Haiks!


Coffee *love*, meehoon goreng, sausages, bulls' eyes (so many biji you know! x_x I'm afraid we are now overdosed on hormone zzz no wonder I see Jason is acting a little siss weird lately... must be the eggs hmmm), and uh, cucur bawang, a bit salty and oily, but bad fat happifies you, so a *little* won't hurt. Oh look! My shoe! So cute! Hee!

Chillin' after a big, long burp

We don't take picture together alot. This is one of the few. I like it! Because I look good here! (OK lah! Not bad lah! Quarter of face covered up ady of course boleh pass lah! T_T) p/s Jason is now officially botak! xD

And then the guys went for a dip! Like, a real high deep dip...

Testing the water

Awwwww! Another of my favourtest pictures! And please, that's not me ok. =.=

Dead. Haha!

I think my slippers oozes awesomeness!

Lunch! More Food! <3

Curry chicken, stir-fry vege, omelette (more eggs! mm hmm!), rice, and breakfast leftovers.

Holy posing

Group photo, of course!

This was taken after one last round of prayers and worship. It was raining just before and the view was magnificent! Except, we have the vietnameses who just came back from their workshops totally ignoring us and talking on top of their lungs, and was busy preparing/chopping up fruits for their bonfire at night while we sang our hearts out -_- ZZZZ


To be able to spend time with God is a super priviledge. In the name of busyness, we shut Him out and we drown His voice, I'm guilty as charge. But how much He longs to hear from us!

Sure, the first steps are always cold, insecure even. But once you step out and take the plunge, you'll know that He is there to catch you, He is there to envelope you with so much of love and grace, you'll wonder what you've done to deserve it.

He took the first step for us, will you not also take your first step for Him?

Bukit Tinggi Pt 2: L'Eau De Vie

Water's super cold!

Sakai #1 and #2

Sakai #1 and #2, posing, demanded pictures to be taken

Sakai #2, #1, #3. S#3 was forced to pose by S#1 and S#2. Unidentified headless creature at the back: erm... what headless creature? Where ah? You're seeing things lah!

S#1: Apparently is the penghulu of the Bkt. Tinggi Timbagwa DoOrDie clan

S#2: It happened here *points*. My pet tortoise, Sang Ninja lost its way home and was drown to its tragic death here:(

I kinda like this shot, but I think there's too much green and that it could be more focused. Heh

This was taken @ Janda Baik... a small commercial hub/town along the highway. There was a commercial farm there. And to see the tourist kids playing in the river water got us all eeuuwwwified... I mean, remember S#1 and S#2 from up there? /swt *shifty shifty eyes*

Our favourite time! MAKAN!

Room service! I grew until so big, never had room service in my life before ah T__T Kak Puteri Bukit Tinggi is the best lah! She made my dream come true!

Homestay kampung style dishes

Ayam merah, assam fish, sawi goreng telur dadar, soup ayam dan sayur, watermelon. My tummy's growling now :/

And then we watched movie lol. Barnyard or something... LOL

This is our guest, Mr. Lizzie. Mr. Lizzie is slimy. He likes insecty snacks. Yum.

Up, up, and away to Genting we went!!!

... just to drink cold drinks in the cold! Besides, we needed the "Starbucks" sign board to show off to whoever's online on msn... that we are drinking cold drinks in Starbucks... in Genting Highlands... Yayaya, I know lah, get a life mah -___-

And that ends our first day in Bkt Tinggi/Genting. I'm actually stealing time before work starts/lunch time/ after working hours to post these pics up T___T so sad lah, no more freedom! Abolish ISA!!!!!!!! OK. gotta go back to work!

Pt 3 tomorrow lah! Tatatillatar!

Bukit Tinggi Pt. 1 - The Quest For The Fountain

I’ve decided I won’t be making don’t want to make mingyan cry with my photo taking skills after all. Haiks. Photoshopping is cruel T____T I just couldn't get 'em colours right! Grr.

However! Pictures nonetheless! :D Because I'm naish like that! :)

On our jolly way!

Good looks kill *snicker*

Ditzy Dohnie: "I was mobbed by a frenzy bunch of female fans! Can you believe it?! They just can't get enough of me! SIGH! It sucks to have good looks! *ditzy exasperation*

fact: he was checking out some girl lah and actually attempted to whistle but before he got to do that, he walked right into a gigantic road sign and banged his head right on and suffered survived the cut and bump. lol Did I mention it was gigantic? *rolls eyes* :x

almost there! (entrance to Gracehill Orchard Lodge)

Bumpy one-car-space entrance/exit. I had a brain concussion after that zzz

Ladies and gentlemen! I (we) have arrived!

Camwhoring started while waiting for our rooms to be sorted out

My home in the jungle

We had a mixed-up room saga. The owner's relative came unannounced and conveniently claimed the room which we've booked and refused to swap even we've paid for it! Like that also can! T__T

So we had to compromise *wuttoodoo. ppl so mangsat takkan you go and quarrel right T___T* zzz Jason and I ended up occupying a 6 bedded dorm all to ourselves instead of the family room lol But it's all good because we get a private balcony, amazing view and privacy as we face the jungle/mountain, plus we get to neighbour ps tim and uncle.ditz and we get exclusive room service! The only downside was, to get to my peepee island, I had to travel into the jungle! GAHHH T____________T no lah. kidding lah! Just downstairs. heh :) But still!!!! T___T

Imagine waking up and chilling to these views! Fancy that huh ;)

settling in/setting up

Kak Suteri/Sutri/Putri/Puteri Bukit Tinggi (=.=') was amazingly friendly and accomodating!

The worship sessions was out of this world!!! ps tim preached, uncle.ditz led worship, I backed up, jason was the congregation. Amen! *nods head*

If you really seek, you're really desperate for Me., then I Am right here. I've never been away...

Finding our way down to the waterfall. Ignore the drama king =.=' Spot the drama king!

Family building

When you have nothing to do, no agendas to follow, no activities to get crazy over, no phone, no wifi, this is what you start noticing - perfectionistic insects making babies.

Peeing tree

Found it! We made it! Ma! We made it! Waterfall !!! Lookie! Zee lifez givinz waterfallz!!!!! ... uh, wait ah... how does waterfall look like again? O_- Fail lah

Eh to be continued lah. Very tiring uploading pictures like this zzzzz

Dim Sum Attack!

We found a good dim sum shop near where we live; since then, I've been dreaming of dim sum every.single.day! ~_~

piping hot



And most importantly,

FRESH out of the kitchen!
