I've been rumbled and more holiday tales

Thanks to both Yvy and Kucing Gatal, I can no longer hide the fact that I was on holiday recently. Things being as they are, I have a small confession to make: plink holidays in KL (and in PJ) and the north of the peninsula.

It's true, I swear!

Now you know where the reference to a Land Just Beyond a PLUS toll plaza come from. ;)

First a plink product endorsement: The Lobsterman in SS2, just back-to-back with the local Sri Siam. My personal recommendation: Lobster sashimi!
*;) at Hedonistics Anonymous*
And don't forget to ask for the head and claws to be cooked Lobster Porridge style! Mmmm....

Second, another product endorsement: the Nike store at Mid-Valley. Cheaper than at a certain 2-phase Bandar Utama shopping complex that isn't the Curve or Ikano.... *evilgrinz* Better service also. My pair of Nike plink's is very nice, thank you very much.
The staff also had to put up with a very excited plink showing off while trying out my shoes. Thank you all very much! *hugzkissez*

Third, another confession: plink likes flipflops. Not just any slippers, but the old-style, made-from-old-truck-tyres kind. It's difficult to get a pair made the way they used to.
*reaches for hair dye*
So after a long search, I found a pair at a Giant superstore. Habisla. Why oh why are there no more of these to be found at the local pasar malam?

Fourth, The Accountant made another push, I think. 'Let's go to The Club for lunch.'
Managed to get the venue changed to someplace more public, a certain 2-phase Bandar Utama shopping complex that WAS the Curve and Ikano. By the end, my nerves were so frayed that I managed to knock the SIDE of pSib's car on a kerb. The side of the car! Sorry pSib....:(


At a lunch with extended family up north, a (much younger) cousin made my day: 'plink, you don't look like you're XYZ years old.'

*Burst of lights and choir singing 'HALLELUJAH!'*

Oh, and 'plink, you're the weirdest person I've ever met....'


Back to Petaling Street, pSib found us an old-style kopitiam complete with old-style ahpeks and old-style dim-sum. I'd like to say I remember these from my childhood except for two things: I'm not that old and my memory isn't that good. :P

Regular trips out to Misai in SS2 and 'teh halia tambah haliaaa!' did nothing for the shape of my bottom or my shape in general.
I did go swimming, though a number of people may have gone blind wishing that I hadn't.... *evilgrinz*

All in all, a very nice relaxing holiday. How did you spend your holidays?
