Good bye, PAP UMS 2008...

I guess after the appreciation dinner, the Pesta Ang Pow (or Chinese New Year Night) University Malaysia Sabah 2008 has came to its end. The hard work and the joy that we have gone through has remained as part of our memory in UMS...
The Appreciation Dinner of PAP UMS 2008 was held yesterday at Le Meridien hotel (I heard it is a five star hotel) after gone through many obstacles. Every attended committee members makes up heavily than I don't remember meeting them, waw! For example, look at the picture below:

(Me, Grace and Doreen were standing while Yi Juan, Jenice, Yi Ming and Ai Xuan were sitting. They are my coursemates!)
Well, I know somebody will say this is just the normal dinner attire and make ups, why am I feeling so strange about it....I have a bad taste in fashion as you can see. If not, why am I wearing black T-shirt and black pants like one of the waiters in the hotel?
Anyway, for your information, I HATE FORMAL WEAR! That's why I never wear them during balls. Social …

An expensive lunch

Guess how much does this dish cost?
RM4? RM4.50? RM5?
These are the acceptable price range to us, the West Penisularian, well, I guess some Sabahans too. But this meal was not included in that range, instead it cost meRM7.50!!! (O.o"")
I took my lunch in KK Plaza before I did my shopping with Kar Fei (purchased our "surviving stocks"). First of all, I rejected other choices in food court as those dishes cost around RM5 and they were worth that for me (even though that may be acceptable for local). Nevertheless I preferred economic rice. Well, the meal ended up as "non-economic". I was astounded when I saw the cash register machine displayed "RM7.50"! No choice, I had to pay for it as there was no way to reject this dish.
Rice + fried long beans + fried egg with long beans + fish balls + fish cakes = RM7.50? That's expensive! Until now I still have not had any clue that this dish cost so much.
No wonder, some say that the economy in Sabah is hard …

The most satisfied Mid-Autumn Festival ever!

Never being so contented whenever I mention about Mid-autumn festival... But for this year, I felt so great about the celebration of this traditional festival... Well, at least I have eaten almost 10+ mooncakes in 3 days... Frankly speaking, I have never eaten so many before due to my background...
I started off from the invitation from Adam to attend the church celebration on last Saturday. Instead of eating bunch of mooncakes, I ended up eating more spaghetti than mooncakes as our late arrival. (Well, I don't blame him) Anyway, I had a goodtimes with them for the whole night, thanks Adam!
On the next day, invitation from an auntie known in Sabah (whose restaurant is full of delicious vegetarian meals ^^) to be presented. This time, it is the celebration of Tsu Chi. First time attending their activity made me felt anxious about the organisation. Met some Chung Ling juniors and we had a great night together! (of course not without those mooncakes) The moment where we solved the ridd…
