Just came back from a 2D1N Genting trip yesterday.
28 Dec 2004
1600 - reached Lavendar MRT station bus stop and waited for Regine.
1640 - Regine finally arrived (estimated time). At this time, it was raining heavily and so we decided to have something to eat in the ICA building.
1730 - Rain had stopped. We walked towards Golden Mile Complex to ask the tour agency on how to check in for hotel, our free breakfast, etc.
1740 - This time, we really felt we had too much of time to spare until 2130. At 2130 then we can board the tour bus. We took a bus to Bugis to kill time.
2000 - Took a bus back to Golden Mile Complex.
2030 - Had dinner at a Thai Restaurant.
2115 - Check in at the tour agency. Got our seat number and bus number. Okay, we were to sit at the very first row.
2140 - Bus arrived and we boarded the bus. The bus was quite spacious.
2200 - Finally, the bus made its way to Genting. I am so exicited.
The journey was really long but we were awake all the way to Genting. Even the bus driver was a bit shocked I guessed.
29 Dec 2004
0300 - Made its way up the Genting Highlands. The bus we were travelling on had problems moving uphill and had to engage 1st gear all the way. Even on 1st gear, the bus often went dead. Hope we could reach our destination.
0410 - Bus engine went dead again. A tour bus travelling from the opposite direction happened to pass by and our bus driver quickly signalled for help. We changed to that bus and continued our journey.
0440 - We REACHED. It was really cold and misty when we alighted.
0445 - Queued to get number for hotel check-in.
0500 - Counter finally opened and we got queue number "46".
0510 - Settled down near the check-in counter and had a sleep until 0900 before the check-in counter opened.
0900 - Check-in counter opened. We waited for our number "46" to be called.
0930 - We finally got our room key! Initially, we thought we could only check in after 1200. We were lucky.
1000 - We went to have breakfast.
1200 - Proceed to Theme Park for some fun! We tried quite a lot of stations and all were fun. I also tried sweet corn in cup for the first time in my life!
1730 - Went back to our room for a bath and a nap before we had dinner and casino venture.
2030 - Had Kenny Rogers for dinner.
2115 - Tried to enter the Genting Casino but then Regine was checked and found underaged. We end up playing in the arcade.
2300 - Went back to hotel after 2300 and had a good sweet sleep.
30 Dec 2004
1000 - We woke up and quickly brushed our teeth and washed our faces. We were to have our free breakfast buffet at Tropical Cafe and 1030 was the closing time for breakfast.
1015 - Reached Tropical Cafe. We "grab" quite a lot of food for just 2 persons but in the end, I would say we managed to finish 95% of them.
1145 - Checked out.
1200 - Wandered around outdoor to enjoy the cold air. We also took a photo.
1345 - Checked in for bus and we would be going back to Singapore on a double decked bus!
1415 - Boarded the double decked bus. This time, we were allocated seats on the upper deck second row. Seats were spacious and bus was quite grand.
1430 - Bus started its journey back to Singapore. On our way downhill, we took some photos.
1900 - Reached "Yong Peng" rest point. We settled our dinner there.
2230 - Reached Tuas Checkpoint. Super long queue there!
2300 - Bus finally made its way to Golden Mile Complex.
2330 - Reached Golden Mile Complex.
2340 - Regine took a bus home while I took a cab.
I am really happy throughout the trip :) Looking forward to our next trip.

Never Give Up
I'll never give up fighting till the end
If I fall along the way I'll get up and try again
But never shall I accept the fact of defeat
I've set goals in life and those I must meet
But never will I let negativity hold me down
Those who think positive I keep them around
Never shall I dwell on things in the past
Bad times come but never do they last
I shall never give in to those who are weaker than I
If I give up now why not lay down and die
Never Give Up

"7 days to Christmas.Need 4000 from each store.Hope u all can push hard. I will be organising a dinner after u all stop working.Those interested pls sms.Treat by mi,eleanor n celeste."
$4000 is not a problem to me I guess since I already hit $1400 for just today! However, I think I will choose to forgo the dinner. I just want to finish my work and get off with it. Count me out!

This time round, we were more well-prepared than our previous one. We laid newspapers on the sand, forming an area measured approximately at 3m by 3m. Strong winds did not deter us but rather, it made the whole process more enjoyable one. We grabbed anything we could find, from water bottles to jacket, from wallets to keys, simply anything, as weight on top of the newspapers. Another brilliant idea strucked us and that was to use scotch tape to piece the newspapers together. This proved to be a major innovation and was soon tested solid when a strong breeze blew past. After the foundation of our "home" was set-up, we then proceeded to lay mahjong papers on top of the newspapers. Using newspapers as the base was a new innovation and this was not used in our previous sighting. Scotch tape was also used for the mahjong papers. We spent about 2 hours just for setup but the time was worth it. Space was big and comfortable.
Finally, we could now lie down to concentrate on catching shooting stars. Sky was clear, weather was cool, mosquitoes were absent, thus provided an ideal condition for shooting stars sighting. We were lucky to catch some nice and bright shooting stars. We stayed awake until 4pm before consuming our supper. The next event for the day was playing with fireworks. They were very beautiful.
First bus out to Singapore main island was 7am and so we spent our free time sitting on our "base" chatting. Our night and very early morning was spent like this before heading for bus out to Singapore main island and back home. Overall, our mission was a successful one. I had an enjoyable encounter.

Today was unlucky for me. I was trapped in the goods lift for 15 minutes. At that time, there were 3 victims including myself in the lift, and one of them was a lady. That lady was a promoter but acted like a distribution assistant to me. She banged the lift, shouted like nobody business, scolded vulgarities, and all-in-all, she was an impatient person. I tried to keep my cool so as to conserve my energy and not to perspire. We were saved in 15 minutes time.

I shall name the person here with an encryption: olxtpy
Decryption Hint: I am using Caesar Cipher. It cannot be that difficult to decrpyt it since the keyspace is just 25.
I cannot imagine anyone with a proper mind will do this. This world is becoming filthy.

With the packet of soya bean, I walked up the stairs and knocked on the door. I entered her house and saw 2 bowls of rice and some side dishes with plates on top as covers. I knew it. I was really touched. Oh my god! My dear actually woke up early this morning to wish me good luck for my exam. My dear actually woke up early this morning to buy fresh vegetables from the wet market. My dear actually woke up early this morning to prepare lunch for me. I was and am really touched.
My dear is so sweet.
I am going to start work on the 6th this month. Find me at Suntec Carrefour toys section.
