Doakan saya...


I have been meaning to post on the Middle Earth adventure, but for the past one week, I have been nervous (seem to be using the word a lot lately).

The reason is, my window is up :D Its normal, after 5 years + here, the window will be opened, and we are allowed to apply for any other job opportunity, within the same company, of course. My mind was filled with job application.

And finally yesterday, I've finalized my applications. If I did not make it this time around, there will be another round of application in May, and another in September.

Jadi saya mohon ya mbak...doain saya ya... :) Makasih.....

After 14 years!!

I got a message on Thursday, from an ex classmate that is back on short holiday, asking if I can spare some time for a meet up. I immediately said yes :)

So on Friday, I got off work slightly early and nervously driving myself to Mont Kiara. Nervous, because I have never been there, and I was scared that I would either get lost, stuck in the jam or could not find the place and missed the opportunity to see her :P

But in the end, I got there on time and stayed there till quite late. 
L-R : Yours truly, Haniza, Hwei Yen, Jacob, Ee Von, Elphine
Meet my classmate from Form 2 and 3. Only the last girl on the right wasn't. She was in S, all of us were in H. 

These girls (apart from Elphine) were my study group for PMR :) We used to rotate houses on the weekend and study together. There was another one girl in the group but she could not make it.
I last met Haniza in UiTM, where we stumbled in an exam hall. Elpine was in the last 10th year reunion. Both Ee Von and Hwei Yen, I last saw them in school....that was 14 years ago!! Both of them are now doctors, Hwei Yen is getting married and Ee Von is expecting a second one.

Elphine, Haniza and I are still in the same boat :D. We had a good chat as Hwei Yen was pouring her hearts out on wedding stuffs and all. It will be a while till we can have a get together again...

Day + 1 : the day I really did throw up, seriously!!

3rd Feb 
We took off from KL via LCCT. Air Asia-X is not really X. We endured the small space for an 11 hour journey, but hey, we made it safely ;) . 
Touched down at close to midnight in Christchurch. Called the hotel transfer (though its only like 5 mins walk) because we were too lazy to drag the bags..hehehe..
We spent the night at Sudima Hotel and took the rented car first thing the next morning.
4th Feb
The agenda for today is drive to Kokoura and watch the whale!! When we took off, I was the co-pilot, but the moment we hit the road, I immediately had car sick. I’ve always feel that way when I was not driving. I switched to seat at the back. We reached the tour company at 12pm. At this time I was having car sick already. Our tour was scheduled to check in at 12.45 pm and head to the sea at 1.15pm. The 1.15 check in was cancelled due to bad weather, so we just barely made it. I took some anti-nausea meds to keep the car sick checked.

The bus took us to the pier and we got on board. After some briefing, the ride begins. It was roller coaster ride that I felt took forever until they stopped. The sea was rough. The boat was hit left right and centre by the violent wave that at times got even higher than the boat itself. Some people started to throw up. I was sick at this point. The first stop, we went outside. Though the boat stop, the wave didn’t. The boat was rocking really hard and we were holding for our dear life to any available bars. The ship crew was trying to locate the Sperm Whale, to no avail. We got in back and after another 5 minutes ride, I had it, I took the white bag in front of me and threw out my whole stomach content. Everything came out, all of it!! Nothing left, even the meds must have came out.

They stopped for second time, but still could not locate the whale. They said it’s getting nearer. In the midst of the boat start and stop cycle, I fell sick again, but this time nothing more left to be thrown up. It was really sickening!! Now I understand how pregnant women feel, maybe what I experience is merely 10% of it.
They keep on looking for the whale, because it’s the company policy to provide refund if we could not see the whale. By the time the whale came out, I was too sick, I could not get up, and I just stayed at my place and yes, I missed the opportunity to see live the Antarctic Ocean Sperm Whale. I was listening to the commentary all along, how the whale moves, how he dives back till the moment they last see the tail.
After that, we head back and I thought the ride back was much faster and less rocky, or maybe by that time I was accustomed to it already? Hmm… who knows? We got back to land close to 4pm and this time we were dead hungry. Having emptied out my entire stomach content, I was famished. We stopped for grilled fish and chips, but I could not finish the chips. After some grocery shopping, we checked in the next hotel, the White Morph Inn. It is on the main road facing the sea, so after washing up, we decided to stroll along the rocky beach.
That night we had a good night rest that we so badly needed because the next day the driving would be almost the entire day. Next stop, Frans Josef, and the day did got better after sort of a sickening experience :)

My life for the past few days has been drama. I sent my passport to be renewed in PD's office on Monday. They promised me 3 days (Wednesday) as they need to send to Seremban. I called on Wednesday morning, asked to call back after 2pm. When I called at 3pm, they told me the system has been down for the past two days, and they could not guarantee when I can get my passport!!! Rasa nak nangis OK, I need that passport Friday early morning, there is no freaking way I can go to any office to collect my passport :( Since they sent it to Seremban, I called Seremban's office, same answer, system down, passport not ready.

I was calling quite a few times since I was disconnected for a few times as well. Finally an officer asked me to go to the office on Thursday and they will try to work something out.
So, as mentioned above, that was how my Thursday goes~~

And today in few hours, I will be flying to the land of the middle earth, Legolas, wait for me!!!
