Home For Family & Friends (PART III)

I came all the way back to Medan to see my family and also attend my dearly friend wedding, Rosabella. She’s my classmate in high school and we’re 1 group. I’m so missing that moments when we acted ridiculous and crazy. Now she’s married with Neoh Soon Keong. I’m so happy for them.

The wedding reception will be held at Grand Aston Ballroom. I asked my mom to come along with me. I met my group friends there, Fifi Sofiah, Jennifer Octavianie, Dewi and Linda Fong, They’re all wonderful ladies with cute children, HOT MAMA!! Little bit awkward because we’ve separated for a long time with our own time, job and family. But later on we’re back to normal. Also I met other friends. It’s good to meet them all.

Back to wedding, the ballroom is big and nice. It’s quite different with the ordinary/usual wedding reception party. I can’t find her anywhere. Usually the bride and groom will greet us at the front door of the ballroom. The decoration is garden theme with a lot of purple color (I thought she loves green color).

663 THE WEDDING DESIGN

This photo caught my eyes, so lovely and serene.

667 LOVE

We’re went inside and wait. Reunion with old friends with their children.

664 REUNION

After passed 7.00 pm, finally I can see her in her wedding dress holding her love of  a lifetime. I’m so happy to see her. She looks like mermaid.

665 HER MARRIAGE

Age is just a number, as you can see the photo below, the HOT MAMA still act like a little girls. Cute!

666 DINNER

Then we have dinner with live music. Medan wedding reception usually very merry and a lot of performances, this time really different, I love the concept, with speeches. I love when her little sister gave her speech for her beloved sister, so much love. Rosa gave her sister a big hug. Wonderful family.

She walked around and finally meet us. She’s surprise to see me and she’s so thankful for my presence. We’re taking pictures. I’m SHORTY! Her husband so TALL… I like like a hobbit.

668 SHORTY

Just a short time from 7.00 pm to 9.30 pm, but I feel so good to see everybody.

Me and my mom have to catch train to go back to Kisaran. I’ll spend 1 day at my hometown then go back again to Jakarta.

THE END

Kuala Lumpur Again (Part IV)

I met my manager in the hotel and gave her some gifts that I bought at the shop near Daorae, She is happy. Her room is next to mine. She just came here today. Have to meet her so tomorrow will be on track.

Tuesday – November 19, 2013

This is the first day of Fitness First Asia Marketing Forum. I woke up and having breakfast.. while I’m enjoying my breakfast, my manager text me and ask me where am I ? Huh ? And then I checked my watch. Oh NO! I’m late. I ran into the meeting room and everybody’s already there. Oh no.. This is the first day and I’m late.. I sneaked in and sit beside my Manager, She stared at me..oh ow..

First time meet new people here. All managers and their graphic designer from Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Phillippines. I’m kinda awkward with this situation. Mostly the meeting is about the general planning for Fitness First in the future. Some topic involved all the Graphic Designers to discuss.

The meeting  have several coffee break. While in coffee break time, we – the graphic designers try to introduce ourselves. Denise – the senior graphic designer and Lex Yong – graphic designer from Malaysia, Jon from Phillippines, Ice from Thailand and Grace from Singapore. They’re all very nice and seem great. Denise is very active and care about us. Grace is very gentle and feel like ‘sister’ for me, Jon is very active in asking question (very critical and smart), Ice is a very pretty girl, but so silent. I just hope we can be a good team for Fitness First.

The meeting from 9 am – 6 pm. We will have 1 more meeting tomorrow to discuss about design. After the meeting, we will have dinner together at Italiannies at The Curve. From its name, we can guess this restaurant is serving Pasta, Pizza and stuffs. The foods are great, the atmosphere is nice. We have a very nice and delicious dinner together.

616 NIGHT AT THE CURVE 617 ITALIANNIES 618 ASIA TEAM

After dinner, it’s free time. We can go shopping or rest in the hotel. Tonight is special, because tonight is Sherline’s Birthday. She asked me out but she can’t pick me up because She has a class to teach. But she invited Abang Osman and Koko Mike. Abang Osman will pick me up. We want to give her a surprise. Abang asked me to find a nice cake for her. I found Chocolate Opera Cake. Looks delicious!

Abang came and picked me up. We went to a place they called ‘KAYU’. I wonder what special about it. Sherline has mentioned it before. It’s like somewhere with a very Malaysian feel – Authentic. Haha, when I came there.. It’s like an ordinary restaurant, but the atmosphere feel is very local. And the food and beverages are very Malaysian. We meet new friends there. We ordered some food and drinks while waiting for Sherline.

619 NEW FRIENDS

After Sherline and all her friends including Tan and Joan came. We ordered more food and drinks, chat and gossip. Her friends are very funny and expressive. When Sherline went to the toilet, we’re start preparing the cake. We put on the table, light the candles and when she came in, We sang loudly HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOUHAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOUHAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU~ She fell on her knees and shy.. Her face turned red and she laughed a lot. She is happy. The best thing in this place is ALL THE PEOPLE are singing together without asking them. It feels wonderful!

620 HER BDAY SURPRISE

Make a wish ~

621 HAPPY BDAY GIRL 622 LOVE

Let’s Celebrate! She make a wish, blow the candles and cut the cakes. A very great night with great friends, foods and games. We played “GUESS THE NAME” game that used a paper/phone and write down a word (can be person, animal or any object), put the word on the head of your friend, and the other friends have to ‘ACT’ to describe the word on his/her head without speak the word out. This is funny and ridiculous, the best word is “LEONARDO DA VINCI”, Sherline’s friends are very creative to ACT, they posed the signature pose of Leonardo Da Vinci – Human Circle pose! They’re very good, and we’re laughing out loud.

625 HUMAN CIRCLE

The best food is Roti Tissue, I surprised with what I saw a food/snack that very tall/long looks like Unicorn’s horn. (Wikipedia – Roti tissueroti tisu, or tissue prata is one of the more-creative-looking Malaysian Mamak foods. It is also known as “roti helikopter” (helicopter bread). Roti tissue is a thinner version of the traditional roti canai, as thin as a piece of 40–50 cm round-shaped tissue. The finishing touches to the making of roti tissue require skill, and they depend on the creativity of the maker).

623 UNICORN HORN

Roti tissue is available at most local Mamak stalls in Malaysia and Singapore and may be coated with sweet substances such as sugar and kaya (jam) or eaten with condiments such as ice cream.

After finish, we’re going back. Abang Osman take me back to hotel. Tomorrow will have morning workout and another meeting. Let’s rest
