1st bad wine experience

1st, it's a beautiful burg by a good maker.
2ndly, it's a 1966!!! Come on, a 40 year old burg.
Don't ask me bout the price,
damn pissed!

After opening and have its 1st note,
JS rejected it...
Sommelier came over and had a tasting..
"Give it another 5 more minutes and it will open up beautifully."

Monkey: "It smells like Marmite."
JS: "I think it's off already."
So we waited.....
still liddat >_< Monkey:"It still smells like Marmite. I dowan to drink it."
Sommelier:"It has a hint of soil with soyu in it." well the sommelier described a wine...soyu!!! not Marmite!!
Haut Brion 86 which we got in HK,
JS was smart to brought another bottle of wine,
insurance everytime you are bringing an old burg to a restaurant.

Sommelier: "Ah, this must be a special dinner with all the great wines."
Both JS and Monkey: " :)))))))))))))))))))))) "
Complimentary fr Chef Takahashi,
Caviar, prawn and salmon.
seared scallop with pear, brie and walnuts
Sea urchin pasta with conch

heee heee heee

I think there's only a handful of human beings,
who can live with me,
stay put with my attitude,
accept my shit and still treat me like an angel..
*my family, my roomies, my very close school/MMU friends, ppl at work*

You were so angelic,
*and you said that I am to you*
Life is just perfect!!
Thank you for managing my mess efficiently,
pack my stuffs for travels/holidays,
incl medicines, supplements, toiletries, food.
so that I will still feel so at home abroad.
Continuously cooking and inventing new stuffs,
for my big CC tummy!!
and still ask me every single day without fail,
"What do you wanna eat tonite?"
When I had bad days,
U'll spoil me and let me vent and spend and eat,
like a Maharaja.
and reminds me how real this world is!!

Thank you for guiding me,
and showing the real world.
so that I'll know where to go to,
what to do,
esp how to deal with scums.
thank you for being such a great bodyguard,
all the time...
though at times u do need a bodyguard,
to save u from pink men.
You never turn your back against me,
unless I ask u to go away
and obediently you kept silent,
while super layan-ing my emo.
*I am an emo monkey*
thank you for cam-whoring with me,
though u hated it,
and put a sulky face in every pics!!
nvm, I can still capture u,
while u were tipsy and drunk..
thank you for caring and loving this wombit!!
*wombat + hobbit = wombit*

Happy Anniversary

Monkey Koh in Koh Island

It's pronounced as "Kok Sze Mui"
Kok = Island
Sze Mui = safe heaven
Fat Monkey woke up early as usual,
weather was again lovely without the evil sun
*poor european tourists*
Big Buddha...
really big and I was too lazy to climb the steps up,
bcoz it is COMPULSORY to take off your shoes...

Lucky they don't make you crawl all the way up!!Sometimes I wished I have so many hands to multi task
my already multitasking workloads.
Very Thai influenced temple
This is near the toilet...
If I don't tell u won't know rite???
Ahem...must be the good photography skills.
I don't have the habit to "wai" whenever I'm in a temple,
*wai = slight bow, palms pressed together in a prayer like fashion*

JS: "U MUST WAI B4 U SNAP ANY PIC!!!!!!!!!!"
*grithing his teeth*

Monkey: "ooooOoooo....I tot U were a catholic."

JS: "I'm a protestant!!! Nooooowww WAI"


Cheu-ly & Teu-ly
my name and JS's name in Thai
We made donation by buying bricks to build their temple.

I tell you, JS's writing buruk macam cakar ayam,
*he writes with both hands = ambidexterity*

If Monkey were to write Thai,
buruk macam chicken intestine.
nope...not chicken intestine,
multiple dragon heads..
*hmmm...Kee would lurve this*This statue guarding the entrance of the temple was scary to me,
scary enuff to ward off notti monkeys.....

Koh Samui

Yes!!! I flew to Koh Samui via Penang,
with Firefly..
It is operated by MAS at a fraction of the price,
similar to Air Asia but the seats are numbered,

I've never travel with Air Asia b4,
but heard numerous complaints bout it..
well it's cheap so shuddup!!!
wah!!! the plane damn small..
I scared leh!!!
I've never boarded such a tiny plane....
almost in tears and JS got to pacify me to board!!

The journey was pleasant and slow.....
1.5 hours fr Penang.

When I touched down...I was in tears again..
this time luffing!!!
U'll know why
are we in Wonderland??
There's this cute themepark choo choo train,
which will transfer us from the tarmac to the terminal building...
This is the passport ctrl counter...
very bare minimum...
No conveyor belts for your luggage,
just manual labor to transfer them for you.
If u have anything to declare...this is where u go to.
JS hired a driver with a farking huge tourist van for 3 dayz..

" joke. Do we need such a big van?"
We stayed at Amari Palm Reef Hotel...
such a different environment fr the airport.
Monkey all comfy again...
My Pina Colada,
with fresh coconut cream...
So while the men went to their green playground,
Santiburi Golf Resort..
the only golf course in the whole damn island..
Monkey laze around in her 2 pcs.
and bbq-ed myself to death.
weather was so lovely,
no sun...

those europeans were asking!!
"Where's the Sun??"
"The Sun needs a vacation too."
even their boat is so artistic!!
Looks like Minangkabau!!

As usual, ppl think I'm Thai!!

Hotel staffs spoke Thai to me,
farang tourists think I'm local!!

the Scuba Dive trainer thought I'm Hongkie..

"Yes chinese...not Thai. U are so smart."

U can't just go that you are malaysian...
coz they'l'l argue that I don't looked like one!!

have to be more specific like,
so complicated man.

JS was mistaken as japanese!!
Super crispy can die roast porky
at nite, we went for foot massage,
the fat ladies automatically will take the men clients.
while monkey's one is a petite Thai gal,
If those fat ladies touch my feet, I'll scream.
for they'll use all the hidden strength they have and try to kill u!!!
My yummy Mojito,

Too many pics..
