Wedding Registration @ KB Court

Yesterday was my brother's wedding registration day. It was suppose to be last week but was postponed to yesterday due to unavailabilty of the staff at the court.

My bro look fresh and gave us a big smile yesterday when we came to pick him up, despite of him returning from work at 12.30 midnight. We were almost blind by him as he came out from the house! He was wearing bright red...hehehe....Ah well, it's his special day and he need red to brighten the day and a sign of happiness. Then later we went to the florist to get a bouquet of 9 roses for the wife to be in over an hour time.

As we reach there, we saw another lady wearing red!! And it's my brother's fiancee! hehe...No wonder lah...berjanji already to wear red.



As we enter the court building, the security in charge was my old classmate! It's always nice to meet an old friend eh! We proceed to the Civil Wedding Registry and then came this lady who turn out to be my cousin's sister-in-law. Gosh, didn't know that we have relatives working in there..hehe...

We were asked to wait for awhile for the Registrar to arrive. As usual, I took photographs of the event. Nowadays, people are crazy to have their photograph taken! Like the old days, people seems to be shy....hehe....



Masa sibuk sibuk mengambil gambar, then came in the registrar. Then I was like...not another one!! The registrar is my auntie's niece, Dk. Masni. What a small world! hehe...We totally didn't expect her to be the registrar...


After the exchange of vow and rings, the Registrar congratulate both of them. There is one sentence that she says that make me laugh is "Congratulation! Now I pronouce you husband and wife. Congratulation Mr. Chua and Congratulation Mrs. Chua...and get used to it!!" hehehe..

The registration went well and now it is official that I have a sister-in-law!

Favourite Place For Car Accident?

Here are two car accident photos that was taken within 2 weeks period. Can you guess where about it is? Can you find the similarity in both the photos?



YES, it's at Kiarong/Kiulap roundabout. This is the most favourite place for ignorant motorist to get an accident. It always happen at the junction leaving the roundabout.

I wonder when will they learn?!

Baby Chloe's Growing Up Video

Chloe is growing really fast. She is already 2 months 23 days. Gosh I can see the changes in her development over the last 2 months. When she arrived home for the first time, all she did was sleep and sleep. Then after few weeks, she is more alert and start looking at things. And now over 2 months, she start to laugh, baby talk and love watching TV! Not sure it's a good or bad thing for a baby..hehe..

Although she is not my child, but by the end of the working day, got home and look at her, she really can cheer you up.

DHI Water Environment talk @Empire

My colleague and I were invited to attend a talk regarding a software called MIKE at Empire Hotel & Country Club this morning. It is a DHI software where it is use to model from water supply to flood. Quite an interesting talk. It was presented by Chris who is currently working with DHI Malaysia based in Kota Kinabalu. And a guest speaker from Germany...can't recall his name...opppsss...hehe..




The talk lasted for 2 hours and then lunch at Atrium. Seriously, I was quite surprise of the arrangement. The talk was free and we have such a luxury lunch...I really didn't expect that coming! hehe

Food Testing For My Brother's Wedding

December 15, 2007 will be one of the most memorable day for our family as we welcome another new member to the family. My eldest brother will be getting married.

At the moment, we are quite busy preparing for his wedding. We have to hunt high and low for the emcee, photographers, decorator for the stage and bride & groom's car.

Normally, before the actual day of the wedding, we were asked to try the food that will be serve on that day. Oh by the way, the wedding will be held at Orchid Garden Hotel. My sister's wedding was held here as well last year. They serve excellent food and great service.

I didn't eat much for lunch as I was reserving my tummy for the food. hehehe.. Below are few of the dishes that will be served on the wedding reception. I missed taking picture on some of the dishes as I was so concentrated on the food that I totally forgot about taking the pic..hehe.






And this is the lovely couple...

Pasar Malam Gadong

A friend of mine sms me and asked me if I can do her a favour. She asked me to get Kueh Malaya at the Pasar Malam @Gadong for her. Gosh, the last time i was there was in 1996, i think. That was the time Im on my final year at MDPMAB doing my 'A' Level.

Driving to that area is not easy! Traffic and difficult to get a parking. Eventually I got one which is near to the tents...BUT there is a sign in front saying "Tidak DiBenarkan Meletak Kenderaan pada hari Jumaat dan Ahad" Hmmm....my brain was thinking..shall i move to other parking place or just take the chance of getting towed! Being a good bruneian..I move my car to other parking slot....NOT!!! I just park my car there..hehe...

I was told to look for Stall 62 for the Kueh Malaya. It took me awhile to walk around that area and look for the stall. Most of the numbering are no longer there but I manage to find the stall. The Kueh Malaya there so laku lah. I have to queue for it.





Didn't spend too much time there cos I can't stand the smoke from other stalls. hehe.. I had a busy day anyway helping parents on their new home.

Want A Piece of my Apple?

My world of IT suddenly change after I decided to buy an Apple that was partly eaten.... I have never been interested in using Apple eversince I tried using it a donkey years ago. It was so complicated and just don't like it. Until lately, Apple came out with such a wonderful look on their computer and also it's function. A friend of mine bought a 20" iMac and told me what it can do!! I was so tempted and decide to go Apple shop in Kiulap. After messing around with their computer there, i was thinking, shall I get the 20" iMac or Apple Mac Mini. All the $$$$ sign just flowing through my head! Finally I decide to get Apple Mac Mini.


I just love this piece of equipment.I was stuck in front of my computer for hours! I'm still trying to learn how to use it!

R.I.C.H.A.R.D

Lately, I have been very busy with one particular chores until I ignore my work. So busy that it strain my eyes, looking at the monitor for over 12 hours a day!

The chores I am talking about is the new found friend communicator site called FACEBOOK! I bet most of you know about it! It's crazy! I have it registered years ago but was never active with it. Until recently when I start adding friends and playing some addicted games like True or False, Scrabulous and others. There are lots of things to do in Facebook! You will never get bored with it. One good tips, if you are bored at work, go to Facebook and register (if u don't have one). You will like it! hehe...

Anyway, one of the add-on in Facebook is "Name Analyzer". So my name came out to be :

Good eh. So better choose a good name for your children next time..hehe.. Back to my facebook :)

Just For Laugh

Just got a forwarded email from a friend and decide to share with you. I have to censored one word which is repeatedly mentioned. I'm sure you can guess it ^_^

A woman is at home when she hears someone knock at the door. She goes to the door and opens the door to see a man standing there. He asks the lady...

"Do you have a vagxna?".

She slams the door in disgust.

The next morning she hears a knock at the door and it is the same man and he asks the same question of the woman...

"Do you have a vagxna?"

She slams the door again.

Later that night when her husband gets home she tells him what has happened for the last two days. The husband tells the wife in a loving and concerned voice...

"Honey I am taking tomorrow off to be home just in case this guy shows up again".

The next morning they hear a knock at the door and both run for the door. The husband says to the wife in a whispered voice...

"Honey, I'm going to hide behind the door and listen and if it is the same guy I want you to answer YES to the question because I want to see where he is going with it".

She nods yes to her husband and opens the door.

Sure enough the same fellow is standing there and asks the same question.

"Do you have a vagxna?".

"Yes" she says......

The man replies....

"Good! Would you mind telling your husband to leave my wife's alone and start using yours ?"

The Other Office

Quite a funny thing happen just before lunch. I asked my friend where are we going for lunch. And he say The Other Office. When I'm hungry,I can't think straight.. and I asked "Bahapa makan at your other office??" My friend was confused! He say the name of the restaurant is THE OTHER OFFICE.. hehe...malu lah..

So we went there and were greeted by the waitress. Very friendly and cosy place. The layout look a bit like the new Taurean Cafe @ The Arch. Being a cafe, there's not much choice of food for lunch but I manage to order Nasi Ayam Rendang and my friend ordered Mee Rebus Special which is a recommended dish by the waitress. The service was really fast. Presentation of the food is good..but then again good presentation doesn't mean the food taste good right? BUT this one taste good..hehehe...I give them a 8/10 score.


As we finished our lunch, then came the floor manager and introduce us with their dessert. First thing came to my mind was :

"Oh No..do we have to pay for that?!"

The floor manager say,

" This is our Signature dessert call "Kueh Lopez" ,although some customers asked for Jennifer Lopez...hehe.. It is our complimentary food for you and thank you for your support."

Was touched by it...Hey..This is my first time that I go to a restaurant or cafe that give complimentary food. The dessert was good! I was thinking if only they give us Custard cream and pour over it..and my friend was saying..

"Kalau ada santan cream, nyaman ni!!"

Yummmmyyy..... Too bad I didn't take a pic of it!

I do recommend you to try out "The Other Office" which is located at the end of the building as Serusop Main HSBC Branch.

Cute Chloe

Took this picture during lunch time. Just realise that Chloe is a morning baby. She loves to smile and baby talk during day time. When it come to night time, she rarely smile eventhough how hard we try to make stupid faces....hehehe...
Few things that will stop Chloe from smiling:
  • Dirty pampers,
  • Hungry and she starts to suck her mitten,
  • When the sun is down

    2 months and 5 days

Great To Run Again

It's been over 2 months since I do any running exercise. Eversince baby Chloe was born, I just can't wait to get home and look at her cute face..hehe.. Can't imagine when I have my own children..hmmmm....

Went to Damuan Park to do my running and a female friend of mine decide to join in. Few things happen during the run. While we were running, we heard a loud screeching sound and a bang! Was looking around and saw a car accident. Good thing it's just a minor accident. One of the cars bumper fell off. Don't think it's a police case as there were no sign of police. Damuan area is prone to accidents. So many accidents happen there and still motorist drive at break neck speed.

Then I saw one of this runner whom I saw running at this park for the past few months. The first time I saw him if I'm not mistaken was in July. He is one very very fat man. I think he is in his early 20's ! I'm not being nasty here...that's is just how I describe about him. But one thing that really impress me about him is that he keep on running and running and by the time I stopped running, he is still running. And now, after over 2 months of me not going to Damuan, I saw him today and I just can't believe my eyes. He lost so much of his weight! I think he have reduces 3 times of his body size when I last saw him in September. I say to myself, if I am brave enough, I will approach to him and congratulate him!! I was really amazed...I wish I can be like him....

And the last thing that cracks me up before we head home was what my female friend says to me. After I told her about how that guy lost so much weight, and she started saying, "I used to be fat few years back"....and I was looking at her up and down...and say ...."and?"......with her body and face expression, she says "LOOK AT ME NOW!!" I just can't stand it and burst to laugh. Luckily there wasn't many people at that time. hehehe... Hey Miss A, if you read this blog, don't marah ah....hehehe..But you do slim down ^_^

Anyway, I have an enjoyable "run" today and more to come.

Work Trip To SG

I was in Singapore since Monday 29 October till 31 October 2007 to attend a training on managing a project. Arrived Singapore on 29 October at 1420 hours. Weather wasn't promising at all.

After we check into the hotel, the 6 of us decide to go to Mustafa, one of the biggest shopping mall in Singapore...I think. They just have so many things in there! Not all the things there are cheap but if I am to buy the things there, I'm sure i will have to pay for my excess baggage..hehe.. Later that night, we went to Esplanade Mall to have our dinner. We had seafood at No Signboard Seafood. The food was excellent!! Although one of my colleague order Drunken Bull Frog! I didn't even bother to try!

The next day, after a long day of training, we went to Clarke Quay. Never been there so do not know what I'm expecting. When we got there, I just love the place. Lots of beautiful restaurants and also sexy waitress (I want to describe in here, but I think it will be too adultery) hehe...Had our dinner at Highlander. Really nice food and the price was reasonable. We were planning to go to Boat Quay, but time didn't permit us. Will go there some other time :) Took some pictures of that place using my mobile phone and you can see it from my photo slide.



The next day, we have to check out by 7am as our flight is at 9am. Didn't sleep well the night before so didn't get up for my breakfast :( As soon as we reach Brunei, 2 of my colleagues and myself have to prepare for a presentation to our client at 2pm. We have 2 of our Australian colleagues joining us too. Later that night we had our dinner at one of the popular restaurant in Brunei. I will let you guess which restaurant it is by looking at the picture :)
