Unforgettable Journey

Unforgettable journey.


A real unforgettable journey which I'll never forget. Last night, my friends and I had been to Kek Lok Si, a famous tourist spot in Penang. The temple is beautiful with lights, latern, flowers and other decorations. Making plan spontaneously with the people who I love spending time with is so wonderful. Although the moment was short, my friends and I enjoyed every bits of the adventerous journey.

Photos of us will be available once I reach home. Surprise surprise! I'm now on my way back to my curry house. Wanting to visit Ipoh. Anyone is in Ipoh right now? Haha.. Hope that the traffic is clear.

Crowd In The Temple

I'm terribly hot right now. Feeling uncomfortable with my sweaty body. The crowd of people and thick smoke are making me dizzy.

Chinese new year is about family reunion, praying and food - I mean in my family. So, I'm now, doing my part, following my grandma and parents to the temple to pray.

I'm such a good girl. Manage to pray and at the same time blogging. Muahaha..

But still, I'm seriously feeling warm here. Get me a tin of cold coke please.

Update From Penang

Good morning everyone.
How are you? Curryegg is sending her regards to you. No. She mean you. You, the one behind you. No no.. the one at the right. Hey. Don't move away, I mean you. Yeah yeah. YOU!

OK. Stop all these non-senses and back to my update. I am right now, in my cousin's house, using his wireless connection to access into my blog. It is like years since I last updated my blog. Days without the internet is actually fun and I can grab this chance to rest myself. Besides, I can spend enough time with the people I care and love without being bugged by any digital devices. Wow. Impressive!

I am right now in Penang, organizing my days with exciting plans. I wanna use my remaining days in Penang as beneficial as possible before starting my busy schedule, again. Yeah!


Gosh. I've forgotten to take my breakfast. It is 9.40am. Will be back again with more stories and photos. At the same time, do wait for more changes in my blog. I just can't wait. Haha..

Happy Chinese 'Niu' Year again!
Get more ang paos and share them with me.. :D

A simple-cute-card for my readers.

Greeting From Lim Anuar

In another 24 hours, we will be in the year of Ox. I just can't wait as I heard some of the 'feng shui' tips from the TV and radio, stating that this coming year will be a great year for a few Chinese zodiac and rabbit is included!!!


Wealth, love, studies, health and luck are all go to rabbits! Isn't this a great news? Well, I have no idea on how accurate it might be as there are no theories nor fact to support the Chinese reading. Like what Dr. A had told us in class, we must have enough reliability and validity to prove a statement or theory correct.

Right, my dear coursemates?
I know some of you are reading this and don't tell Dr. A ya.. hahahaha....

Anyway, good news are always welcome no matter how unreliable it might be - of course, not if it is something illogical. My rational mind work well in this case. Thus, no matter how, I will treat my Ox year and 2009 as a good starting for my extra-ordinary journey. Yes. I believe in myself.

At the same time, I do hope it will bring you good luck and beautiful year as well. No matter what, we are still the one who choose our own destiny. Don't just rely on Feng Shui or fate. Without hard work, there is no result.

Let us focus on Lim Anuar now, as what I had written on my blog post title. I wonder how I manage to maneuver that far from my main topic. Lol.. Sorry.

This morning, I have received a beautiful e-card from Lim Anuar, one of my friend who I knew from RC Deaf Mission. He is a deaf artist who work in Lim Kok Wing (my dream university years ago) and I really admire his work a lot. Besides, he has showed me the courage to pursue his dream despite his disadvantage. After years of hardwork, he is now a well-known local deaf artist who shares his talent with the world. That's one of the aspect which I adore him a lot.

Can you be my 'si fu'??

I love his Chinese New Year greeting card so much.
Thank you Lim Anuar. Hope that you wouldn't mind as I am sharing your lovely card here... The cows are so cute. Did you really snap them?

Right now, I am missing my other RC Deaf Mission friends - both deaf and hearing friends. We make good companions and I will never forget my experience when I was with them. They have taught me to be stronger and braver each day although, communication might be a problem for us to get closer.

No matter how, I am trying not to forget my sign language (sigh.. I am slowly forgetting them. Knock my head twice. Ouch!).

Some posts which you might not want to miss about RC Deaf Mission:
  1. My Very First Public Speaking
  2. Deaf Art Expose 2008
  3. Fashion Show By The Deaf

Thank you my friends and I am looking forward to meet you guys in the next gathering.
Happy Chinese New Year and God bless.

Again, Happy Ox Year to my lovely readers who always eager to find out more about this extra-ordinary egg - ME of course! Haha.. You are the main reason why I am still keeping this blog for 2 years.
2 YEARS!!!!!

Wow... I really can't believe it.
Thank you for loving this Curryegg. She loves you too!
Happy holiday!

I think I should claim a date for my blog. She needs a date to celebrate her birthday. Emmm.. when did I start blogging here. Feb or June?

The fonts and the size of this post are so weird. That happen when I am using other computer. I am using my uncle's computer. Holidaying in my hometown now. Perak! A little messy. Sorry~

Lessons To Be Learnt In Zhu Hai, China

P/S: Missing out this post is like missing the Curry world. So, don't take the risk and start reading this!

I miss the days when I was having my holiday in Zhu Hai (Zhūhǎi, 珠海 or "Pearl Sea") and Macau with my family. It was an adventurous trip which I will never forget. Never ever, ever, ever! The memory is still fresh in my mind, as if it was just happened a month ago - although it was already 8 months ago.

It was a shame that I had missed out sharing my Zhu Hai trip with you. Sorry my dear readers. Please allow me to share them here though I know I am late. Rather be late than never, right. Haha.. Trust me, it is something worth to be shared.

If you are planning for a week holiday to China, do consider Zhu Hai+Macau package. Nothing is more worthy than save time, save cost and save energy. Yes. It sounds like SUPER SAVER package! Haha...

But it is true!

Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Visit Zhu Hai

1) Zhu Hai is located just beside Macau. Near!
It takes about 15-20 minutes from Macau Airport to Zhu Hai Customs. All you need is your passport to allow you to step into Zhu Hai within hour (The procedure in Zhu Hai Customs can be really irritating during peak hour. Long queue, crowded and strict).

2) Cheaper trip!
The cost of living in Zhu Hai is cheaper compare to Macau and Hong Kong. Thus, you can save up some pocket money for more trips! For example, it costs RMB120++ in Zhu Hai while RMB400++ in Macau. Gosh! See the difference?

3) The view in Zhu Hai is wonderful.
Learn to love the another side of the Earth.

4) Education - Geography, Sociology, Psychology, Marketing skills, whatelse?
You can expose yourself to different cultures and people in Zhu Hai. You get to learn more about them.

5) Paradise for shopaholic!
Darn cheap and up-to-date items especially clothes and accessories! Ladies, do take note of this! Apply our 'Buy till you broke' slogan. Lol..


So, let me start with something interesting. I pick the 4th point for this post. Let me attach with some 'proves' based on my observation. May I? :)

A Lesson To Be Learnt - Seriously!

I remembered the very first time when my family and I reached Zhu Hai. We had been to several places, guided by a tourist guide. He seemed to be friendly and I used to like him. 'Used'. And the word 'like' doesn't mean I had a crush on him. Don't get me wrong! I hated him after that. Why? Continue your reading and discover the answer.

He guided us to several places including this X tourist spot - a village with X cultures. Sorry for using 'X' because I had forgotten the name of the area and the name of the minority group. Anyway, you can recognize them base on their costume and language.

We were being welcomed with plastic flower. However, we were asked to place them back on a man-made wall in order to gain good fortune. What a good idea. Ceh~

This girl (a representative of the village) used to be very nice, friendly and funny with all her jokes and sweet smile. Again, 'used to'. She explained clearly about their cultures, people and language and I used to love her company. I likes their cultures and hand-made craft. Beautiful aren't they?

I bought this bag. Love it.

Soon, we followed the girl in a big group, to a wooden room. In the room, we were asked to sit in a big circle and being served with their tea. Wasn't that sound so nice, as if we were the VIP?

You are a VIP when you have the $$$$.

That's why, tourists are always being served as the VIP.

Things seemed to be wonderful at first and no one realized that there was a hidden trap behind the scene. (Ada egg behind mee curry). Yeah. No one.
The so-called family gathering have turned into a sale and marketing session

Once she ended her song (she sang two songs for us), all of the sudden, a group of people (6-8 of the other staff) filled the room with more 'joy-and-fun-event' - selling Chinese Teh, herbs, dried food and asking for donation. There was no room we can escape as they keep on pulling us with persuasion.

Well, they are really well-trained and managed to convince my parents to spend about RMB200 for their products. Not just my parents were the victim. In fact, almost all of the visitors in the room bought at least a bag of their products- accept me and an old lady because we have no money. Lol..

Wasn't that impressive?

It is a good marketing and psychology class and I shall keep this lesson properly.

At the end of the day, the girl didn't even let us go without doing another promotion when all of us were ready to flee. You will get the advantage to understand the situation by watching this video if you know Cantonese. Sorry for those who can't understand a single conversation in this video.

Again, Zhu Hai is a good place for real education
In fact, most of the tourist spots practice the same strategy especially China. So, beware or you will ended up being terribly broke for the very first day of the trip. Worse is when they don't accept any credit card service.


Advantages: Learn to be wiser in future.

I Need A Catalyst

I was trying to concentrate in class today but unbelievably, failed. The serious headache really distracting my concentration no matter how hard I tried. Normally, I will not allow myself from shutting down my brain while the lecturer or any speaker who is teaching something important. I will never miss a word for sure as I believe every single word lead to something beneficial for my future - not just for exam of course. Never.

Any day but today.

A friend of mine was frowning when she realized a sudden change in me - quiet and inactive in class (a really rare incident). If you knew me well, you will can see my extrovert behavior. Lol.. She even messaged my neck area, trying reduce my pain. Thank dear.. You are so sweet.

I believe, this serious headache is caused by stress. I have been thinking about my future lately. It causes me a massive headache. Questions like the below 5Wives & 1Husband questions keep on bugging me:

a) Who should I be?
b) Where should I go?
c) When should I start?
d) What should I do?
e) Why am I want it?
d) How should I achieve it?

As I tried filling in the blank in each question with my rational answers, I realize I haven't equipped myself with enough knowledge, skills and experiences. The goals which I have set earlier seemed to be so far ahead and I don't know how to achieve them in a faster rate? It seems that I am impatience and wanna speed things up. Is it a good thing?

I don't know why but I find myself lost. The more I questioned myself, the worrier I become. Well, I guess I shall stop worrying and look for a better solution. There is no point sitting in a corner, worrying and do nothing. Instead, I shall start working. Right?

Is there any effective biological or artificial enzyme to catalyze my learning process? I want to boost up my learning. All of the sudden, I miss my Biology..



Something random. A post without a picture is so not me. Haha..
I need something happy like these:

Took this during December.
They are all made by balloons! Nice? :D


I am feeling motivated now!!!!
All of the sudden, the positive energy is rushing back to me and I am excited to continue my journey, again! Yeah. Curryegg is ready to rock the world, again! Come on babey! I love you so much! Hahaha... ;D

A Message To Kevin

I was trying to look for my Chinese New Year (CNY) clothes last Sunday but ended up buying nothing. The mall was too crowded. Instead of looking for garments, I ended up looking for ways to escape.Lol..

Kuala Lumpur is so packed especially during weekend and festival season.



While I was trying to escape from the mall, I came across with something familiar. I knew I saw this before when I was with Kevin and aunt. Gosh. I am so missing them right now. No call, no emails, no news from him and aunt. It is like suddenly they are disappearing from my world.

The last time we had meal together.
I miss the mini pizza! It is really nice!

Kevin, if you read this, do leave your email or call back. We miss you here..


I knew my aunt love these toys and I secretly captured some of the photos, again. This time, it was in the mall. Any CCTV around?

Lol. Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh~~

Aren't they lovely? I love them a lot!!!

How I hope I can follow them to United State. Then I can meet Barack Obama in White House. Haha.. I am waiting him to appear in front of the TV in CNN channel. Can't wait.

Holding books, paper file and water bottle in my hands, I was stunned when I first stepped into my varsity. I tried to blink several times, convincing me that I might be wrong. Sometimes, my eye sight during Monday isn't correct - It is named as Monday Blue Phenomena.


As I made another few more steps ahead, an idea finally struck my mind. I knew what was happening.


Flyers and banners are hanging all around the walls, pillars, trees and sign boards. That is the most craziest moment in the local universities in Malaysia whenever there is the student election day. I guess it happens in Western countries too?


Here are some photos I managed to sneak out.

Bus stop was crowded with flyers, not people!
What a rare picture..

I wonder who will win? UMNO or PAS? It is just a metaphor to describe the situation between the two student's parties. Haha..

P/S: Never say you see this from Kelly, but from Curryegg!


The opposite won = 8/9

Vote For Penang!

No one should miss voting for Penang as the top 22 places to go in 2009!

Yes. No one. Especially me!

I received a note from Sze Ling few days ago in Facebook, showing me the link to vote for Penang in The New York Times website. Thank dear for the sweet notification. At my first glance, I was surprised on how Penang managed to be picked as the most recommended place to be visited in Malaysia. It is not Malacca, not Pahang, not Sabah and not even Kuala Lumpur.

To my amazement, Penang is being ranked as the top 22 among the 44 by The New York Times and I am really proud of it. Seriously, Penang is a really beautiful place with her unique cultures and arts, cheap and yummy food (OF COURSE!), historical building and nice people (like me.. lol..).

So, I am really proud of it and do vote for Penang by clicking on the Penang icon and click the recommendation box. There are 2 categories. The first category is based on The New York Times's votes while the other one is based on the readers' votes. As for the readers' votes, Penang is being ranked as the top 2!

Extremely excited!

Just in case you might be my first time reader who happen to bump into this page and have no idea on what I said about Penang, don't worry. Here are some links of my previous posts which I had blogged about Penang and you can have a quick look on them.

What are you waiting for? Click on this link below and vote for Penang!

If you have made any beautiful post on Penang, you can send your link here and I can attach your link(s) here with no extra charge... and I am serious!

Photoshop. Should I? Shouldn't I?

I believe most of us know what is Photoshop, right?
It is a software which can make your photos perfect by editing them using the provided tools - as perfect as you want.

I remember I first learn to know about this skill is from Xiaxue, a famous Singaporean blogger. She did blog about it and even made her own video to show us the effect.

In my case, I use Photoshop to adjust the photo brightness, colour, correct some obvious spots and add my blog link on it. Something which is simple and easy. I know how Photoshop can make you look like a Hollywood superstar - IF! You have the skills. Or else, your photos will look worse after editing. It will be disasterous.


Photoshop skills can be mastered if you spend some times discovering it and practicing your own. However, I don't Photoshop much of my photos because I don't want to fake my look. It is weird when your friends found you prettier in photos than in real person. That will be incongruent and I want that.

However, after watching this video, it makes me think twice. Should I start photoshopping my photos in order to gain high admiration and adoration? Should I start making my eyes bigger, become slimmer, bigger boob, better smile and smoother skin?

Thank to Aronil for sharing this video. This video clip has proved that why the number of eating disorders is increasing lately. So girls! Watch this. You can stop your hard-to-follow-diet into easy-to-master-photoshop skills!

I start to feel that my photos aren't perfect enough. I should photoshop them!
Well, should I or shouldn't I?

Tell me my dear...
I am desperate to know... :(
