Malaysia Day weekend

I had a very eventful and happy Malaysia Day weekend. It all started on Saturday noon, a very best friend of me, Louissa, I called her as Sasa, driving all the way from Penang to my house. You may be thinking, just 75minutes journey, what so big deal. She has actually reallocated in US after married. This was her first time driving long journey all alone with only the help of GPS, just to meet me. Bravo Sasa, you did it.
We two have put on weight since the last time we met. Ain't this the best sign of our happiness?
 
Sasa was my colleague in my previous company 10 years ago, and we still have endless topics to talk to each other whenever we meet. Sasa, thanks for the friendship and everything. You must always stay beautiful and happy.

Continue on Sunday noon, Yvonne and myself were going to meet lina, whom I got to know in blogsphere. lina was here to run for Taiping International Marathon. Yes, she was the first and only Gadis that I know who can run like Forest Gump.
Though we just knew each other not too long ago, but we clicked and chatted like old friends the minute we met.This is the power of blogging.
I was actually coming out straight from the gym to meet her at the hotel lobby. Yours truly was in Cotton On active wear. I intended to look more sporty in front of a runner. lina, we talked a lot, but I can remember this remark of you the best for now, "Yan, you tall, why didn't you be a model? .....Sayanglah!..." I take this as the compliment of the day. Thanks for the time to meet up, thanks for helping to deliver the goodies to HHCB, thanks for the lovely "buah tangan" from you and Kathy.

Later towards Sunday evening, we went for an uncle birthday celebration at a cozy Chinese Restaurant. It was an 8 courses dinner.

We, a family of 4 truly enjoyed the dinner and stage performance. 

Now, I start to check the calendar and look forwards to the next Public Holiday, Hari Raya Haji, which is on 26 October.
