Workshop + Bakuteh


It started off as another productive Sunday.

Well, so I hoped.

I had to attend a workshop for my secret project early in the morning, which signifies the last step of phase 1. If everything goes well, I'm hoping to kickstart phase 2 sometime next week. Woot!

In true Malaysian manner, the workshop started almost an hour later than scheduled; and of course, ended much later as well. Something about Malaysian and being on time that just don't go well together. :/

Despite being expectedly boring and uninteresting, the workshop went alright. Time still crawled, but at the very least, we were given a chance to have a short hands-on exercise which provided a brief glimpse of phase 2.

Or maybe I'm just glad to have finally completed part 1 and be able to move on to part 2 soon? Oh the tedious process of something so simple!

Bee picked me up at 4pm, and we stopped by Subway on the way home for takeaway sandwiches as I was starving!

We both fell asleep after our late lunch since neither of us got enough sleep the night before, only to be woken up later in the evening by a phone call from Bee's mum which spelled trouble. I'm sensing a long night of dramas ahead. :|

Bridget is coming over to pick me up for dinner soon. I'm thinking bakuteh?

Nothing calms your nerves better than a hot bowl of herbal soup, and boy do I need it now!

Actually I was thinking to have Bak Kut Teh yesterday but not many nice ones in Penang. I really miss the smell of the herbal soup.

Iamthewitch: I know! There's just something really comforting about drinking a bowl of hot soup on a rainy day huh? :)

Xin: I wasn't even hungry when I left home for dinner, but my stomach started growling as soon as I stepped into the restaurant because of the herbal smell in the air. Hehe.

Sab: I think the same applies to all South East Asians. Haha.

Josephine: Me too me too! I'm a big fan of soups, can't go more than a week without them. :D

Emotionalistic: Ooo..that's surprising. I thought Penang is a food heaven? How about if you just make do with the not-so-nice ones for now and get your real fix on your next trip back to KL? ^_^
