Bowling Time!

Last Thursday, after having a mouthful Chinese buffet food at Panda, The Quay, I joined my friends playing bowling at AMF Bowling which is located just across the restaurant. Despite my busyness with assignments and presentation, I still managed to steal some time to have fun with them. Even though we had eaten at Panda last month, this time was quite different. Usually we went for lunch buffet, but today we had evening buffet instead. It's a bit more expensive than lunch, but quite satisfying because the food served was more variable. They served more seafood like prawns and mussels.

We played bowling for about 3 hours from 9.30 pm till 12.30 am. It's like OMG! Played until bored. However, it's quite worthy since we only paid £8 for the whole 3 hours. It's a Thursday special promotion. Sangat berbaloi! You know, it's been a while since I last played bowling. In Malaysia also, I rarely play bowling except once in a blue moon.

Tonight's plan was planned by Alex, Chei Wan, Wanli & Farrah. My flatmates and I only decided to join in the very last minute. We booked two lanes; 4 and 3 pax respectively. First we warmed up for the first two rounds before the games got very serious. The more we played, the tighter the scores be. It was definitely fun especially when we saw Alex accidentally threw the ball backwards. Luckily the ball didn't hit anyone. Lol

Wanli lead the scoreboard with >100 for every sets he played! Terer sangat! I played so-so je. Not so good though.

We finished our games when the staff told us that the place gonna close soon. Macam kena halau gitu. We were kinda the last persons who left the place that night.

What a fun and enjoying night! Sangat puas dapat main bowling without any restrictions and limitations! 


*sorry for the low quality image, I didn't bring my big camera.. XD

Hanafiah's Birthday

We celebrated Hanafiah's birthday today. It was really a surprise party since Hanafiah didn't expect we cooked for him. It's quite easy to trick him though.. =p

Not like usual, this party was organised at lunch instead of dinner. Main dish (hailam noodles) were prepared by Chef Wanji while the birthday cake and baked nachos by me. The girls brought additional food such as pizzas and fruit cocktail later. There were also ice cream with cones and carbonated drinks.

We spent approximately less than 2 hours for talking, eating and photographing during this celebration. Hanafiah also expressed his gratitude as he was quite surprised of the celebration because he rarely celebrates his birthday. No worries, we're all here for you. That's what friends are for.

We sang a birthday song while he sliced the cake. This time, I baked the same cake like Fariz's birthday but I changed the icing using a different recipe. A bit more cheesy.

Oh la la~

Harap2 semua kenyang la ye makan2 tadi. Ingatkan tak cukup tadi. Kalau niat dah ada, semua benda Allah permudahkan. Benda tak cukup jadi cukup. Alhamdulillah.. =D

Tomorrow we are going to start a new semester. Wish us the best! =)

By the way,

Happy Birthday Hanafiah!

Semoga dipanjang umur, dimurahkan rezeki dan sentiasa berada dalam lindungan-Nya.

Baking Day

We had our baking day yesterday. Me with my labmates Alex & Esther. It was just a simple celebration to mark the end of our research lab session. We all came out with different recipes, I made Seafood Pie, Alex made Oatmeal Cookies while Esther was baking a Marble Cake. We did all the baking at Esther's place.

Esther's Marble Cake


My Seafood Pie

Alex's Oatmeal Cookies

The products were unexpectedly very tasty and yummy. We spent so much time talking and joking with each other and we were also joined by the members of the house; Irene and Pay Ying. Sometimes Weei Foong, Audrey, Siew Chui and Kah Lian dropped by.

Black is our theme

I'm going to write the recipe for the seafood pie in another post. Some of my friends had requested me for the recipe. So, I'll write it soon.. =)

Lab Fun

My research lab session is officially over today. We don't have to go to lab tomorrow as we already finished doing our experiment. Now we only need to do some analysing and interpreting our data for the identification of our compounds. Geoff will do the NMR for us and he will meet us later to discuss about our introduction and draft methods.

Here are the collection of the photos taken during the lab session using my phone.

I wanna thank all of my lab-mates who helped me a lot. I know I'm very quiet in the lab, didn't really talk much.

I didn't realise how fast time flies. We finished our lab earlier than scheduled. That means many datelines need to be catch up. I only got less than two weeks to prepare for my Pharm Care presentation. Oh my.... One month to write CPP essay.. Oh my.... Two month to write Pharm Care case report.. Oh my....

Fariz's Burpday

Before I'll start writing about this topic, let's give a big round of applause to myself because this is my 500th blog post! *clap clap clap!* What an achievement!

Okay, let's start writing.. Yesterday (11.01.12) was Fariz's birthday. Although everyone was quite busy with labs and so on, we still got time to gather and had an awesome dinner, although most of the food was a bit spicy. We had already surprised her with a cake at 12 am that night so I thought a dinner party would be nice to celebrate her birthday properly. This dinner was also a surprise for her. We had to cooperate and act to make sure she didn't know about the party.

Menu for that night were briyani rice (there were two version; one was spicy and one wasn't), madras chicken curry, hot & spicy fried chicken, salads, fritters and of course another birthday cake. This time, my turn to bake. I made a triple layered chocolate and vanilla cake topped with melted chocolate. I baked the cake after I came back from my lab. They said it was yummy.. =d

Here are the photos from the event.. =)

Retis kena banyak gambar sket malam ni.. hehe..

Friends since 2006.. =)

Choc-Vanilla-Choc cake


To Fariz Lolli_not_licious,

Happy Birthday yang ke XX!

Semoga dipanjang umur, dimurahkan selalu dan joyah2 selalu.. Joyah rules!

I ♥ Souvenirs!

Just recently, my flatmate, Wanji came back from his solo travel to Prague, Budapest & Vienna. Before he went to travel, I had asked him to buy me something as souvenirs. I gave him certain amount of Pound Sterling (£40) because I expected things are gonna be very expensive in Europe. As usual, I asked him to buy Hard Rock Cafe stuffs. So here are the things that I got!

HRC Prague t-shirt & HRC Budapest pin badge, Budapest & Prague fridge magnets and Austria pin badge.

Honey cake yang sangat sedap! Dijamin halal...

This is from Bella, I asked her to buy me a Hard Rock Cafe t-shirt from Madrid.

Walaupun dua2 design baju aku dah ada, tapi tak kisahlah sebab nama tempat lain2.. Hihihi.. XD

Kalaulah kat Andalusia hari tu boleh singgah Hard Rock Cafe Marbella, mesti boleh tambah koleksi lagi.. hik3..

Thanks for buying me all of these stuffs! Harap tak susahkan korang! =)
