Group outing : Picnic in the park

Efenem in his ngeh-hek-hek time

I forgot when was the last time we had a group outing. But it seemed to be a long time ago. Basically because everyone was busy with their own "private" lives.

-Uncle is a family guy, keeps refreshing his blogstats every minute to see how many viewers visit his blog.
-Nantha is an indian head, and is restricted to mix with us.
-Ieja has too much shopping to do, too many people to visit.
-Rose has too many guys to flirt with, too much shopping to do as well.
-Faiz has to run his blogs, his MSA-stuff, running to-and-fro the Deans office.
-Fadzli is simply just carefree.....very very carefree.
-I am, however, don't know what am I busy with, just feel very very busy.

So finally, after our gynaecology cycle we suggested to have an outing since we would be having a few days of holidays after that.

The weather had been a JERK. One day it's hot as hell, another day was cold, the next day rainy...just unpredictable. We'd to use weather forecast to plan which day to go.

We prepared some food for our lovely picnic.
-curry chicken
-rendang chicken
-fried noodles
-egg and tuna sandwiches
-Sprite-pineapple juice mix for drinks

Just to name a few (or that's all?)

So we rode on bus to get to the other side of the park, spreaded open the straw mat, and started to eat. Food was delicious!!! Too bad no time for taking pics of food though. We got forgetful when we all saw the food.

Rose being hostile to Nantha
Rose : I'll spit on you if you kept talking.
Nantha : Hmmh! Like I care~

Weather was chilly. But that didn't stop us from having great fun. Fadzli brought volleyball. So after eating we played volleyball, dodgeball, football, monkey etc.

There was also some canine-camp going on. We could see beautiful (and some ugly ones) running around with their owners. Luckily none of us stepped on dog poo.

Efenem : Nge-nge-nge the ball is mine

We then shifted our site to a place nearer to a football field where we all played football. Then I came up with the idea of playing "3-2-1 Red light!" after we were tired with balls. Since none of them played before during their childhood, I had to teach them LOL.

We called that "AEIOU" though. So the rule is one has to read AEIOU in a distant and the others have to move to touch him when he's chanting. When he's done chanting, and turns around, no one is allowed to move at all. If one moved, he's outta the game.

Ok, so what happens if one touched the guy? He had to run as far as possible away from him until he's finished with the AEIOU. The AEIOU guy has to try his best to catch the naughty boy in 3 steps, large or small he decides for himself in order to catch. If caught, the naughty boy would be outta the game. If not, he escaped, and the guy has to catch another one.

Just very childish game...but fun!



Wah! Still so far~

Ieja : Ergh~
Uncle : I can see you~
Fadzli : Teeeheee~

Uncle in action!

Efenem : My turn now, nyah nyah nyah, Ah-Eh-Ih-Oh-Uh!

I of course took some photos for edits.

And lastly, before heading back home, we saw the cutest thing ever on Earth.

A HUSKY named Andiosha? Adriana? ....I forgot >o<

Adorable right?

Shut up if you've seen a better one!!!!

Expedition : Shatki

*Photos at the end of the entry*

Wow it's been a while since my last entry. So I'm gonna blog about many things (if there's any) from now on.

Exams were difficult. But now I'm free, perhaps too free. That's why I blog.

So I'm gonna tell about my expedition to a small city called "Shatki", which is one of cities of Nizhegorodskiy region. It's situated next to Arzamas, another great city with numerous amazing cathedrals.

Sergey invited me to join this expedition. He asked his friend, Galina to allow me to go because he knew that I could take good pictures for an exhibition. He told me that usually people who wanna join must pay 2000 roubles. I, till now, don't get why people would join this kinda activity.

The journey to Shatki was far, I forgot how long it took to get there. But it was ass-painful far. But it's actually called "near" to the russians because, pfff RUSSIA IS SO BIGGG!!! I thought it was far because I was from the little Malaysia.

The expedition was meant for an exhibition about the heritage places around the Nizhegorodskiy region that have been forgotten by the generation X and generation Y.

My expedition was about a Municipal hospital that existed from 1895-1995. It's more like a combination of hospital and rehabilitation centre. The hospital was surrounded by a huge park with abundance of floras, ranging from food to medicine.

But now it's just a piece of wasteland like jungle. It was kinda creepy when we reached there. The weather changed. Gloomy and rainy. You know, like the House on Haunted Hill. There's even a graveyard of the owner of the park!!!! Which really creeped me out~

However the air was fresh after the shower stopped. In the park, there were 5 lakes interconnected by pipes to prevent them from overflowing that might just flood all the sick patients away. But nowadays, the pipes were stuck, I guess. So one lake had a higher water level than the other one which was almost dried up. It's like, you look to your left, you're hydrophobic; look to your right, you're acrophobic.

They even had their own sauna there. But it's closed now.

But it's a great natural park where people could rest their minds.

Below are pictures that I took during the expedition. Some of the pictures will be shown during the exhibition and will be published on the website, which I've forgotten the website (will keep you guys updated anyway).

Really, really old glass

Just for Laughs

I received this forwarded email from my little sister. It's just hilarious. LOL.




I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life; is this true?

Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it... don't waste them on exercise. Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up your heart will not make you live longer; that's like saying you can extend the life of your car by driving it faster. Want to live longer? Take a nap.

Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?

You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a cow eat? Hay and corn. And what are these? Vegetables. So a steak is nothing more than an efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system. Need grain? Eat chicken. Beef is also a good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable). And a MIXED GRILL can give you 100% of your recommended daily allowance of vegetable products.

Should I reduce my alcohol intake?

No, not at all. Wine is made from fruit. Brandy is distilled wine, that means they take the water out of the fruity bit so you get even more of the goodness that way. Beer is also made out of grain. Bottoms up!

How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?

Well, if you have a body and you have fat, your ratio is one to one. If you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc.

What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?

Can't think of a single one, sorry. My philosophy is: No Pain...Good!

Aren't fried foods bad for you?

YOU'RE NOT LISTENING!!!... Foods are fried these days in vegetable oil. In fact, they're permeated in it. How could getting more vegetables be bad for you?

Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?

: Definitely not! When you exercise a muscle, it gets bigger.. You should only be doing sit-ups if you want a bigger stomach.

Is chocolate bad for me?

Are you crazy? HELLO. Cocoa beans! Another vegetable!!! It's the best feel-good food around!

Is swimming good for your figure?

If swimming is good for your figure, explain whales to me.

Is getting in-shape important for my lifestyle?

Hey! 'Round' is a shape!

Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about
food and diets.

And remember:
"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to
skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO, What a Ride"
