Port Dickson trip at Tj. Tuan

My adventure holiday

PD (Port Dickson) trip……..

The first time i went to PD was during my 1st year. Dr Khoo KS, my lecturer and supervisor introduced this wonderful but superb dirty beach to any students including myself. Well, the last time i went to PD was during my 2nd year 2nd semester.  I remembered Dr khoo aka ah pek khoo (my supervisor) always asked me and the rest of my friends whether we want to follow him to PD to collect samples such as different types of seaweeds and corals.

Ok ok.. finally, on 29th of December 2005, a number of students including myself and Dr Khoo decided to go (This was like my 3rd or 4th time to Tanjung Tuan). I still remembered that place well. You know why? Let me give you a couple of reasons. For instance, the beach was very dirty due to irresposible locals and visitors who loves to throw rubbish such as polystyrene box, food, bones everywhere (E..E..W..E!!), quite a number of hawkers stalls and so forth. Okok..now i would like to introduce the PD E.S.C.A.P.E member: Kar li, April, Li Laine, Melvin, Eileen, Sammie and Kai Ming. Dr khoo brought along his kids (Minnie, Mickey, Hao hao and Eunice). We left campus around 10:30am. The kids in dr khoo’s car behave themselves very well. Introducing the four superb active doggy:

We arrived PD around lunch time and it was raining (well.. thank god not that heavy). Since we couldn’t start our sampling, photography, kayaking activities, we decided to have our lunch. Guess what we had for lunch? (Give up?) The answer is …..KFC.The last time i had KFC was two years back (Jeez.. that’s so long time ago). Anyway, what i know, the kids love it so much. Eunice and Minnie fought for KFC (Bad Girls..).

Right after lunch, i sort of busy started my photography activity ( This show my prayers came true…thank you, god!). Here i would like to show off my SE and Canon camera. Just need a couple of minute to enjoy my wonderful photos.

Here are the pictures of the beach:

Around 2pm (the weather changed from bad to good!), the sea water level increased due to the amount of rainfall. Anyway, all of us started our kayaking activity.  PD E.S.C.A.P.E team was divided into two groups: 1) Me (Eileen) and kar li in one boat and 2) April and melvin in the other boat. We had a kayaking race see. The race was whoever can spot dr khoo while dr khoo snokling consider the winner. Guess who is the winnder? Wah haha.. NO ONE (it’s quite hard to spot him!).

So, after an hour, all of us had to return the boat. I forgot to let you all know about the price…RM15/hour for each person (Don’t you think it’s way expensive?). All of us enjoyed the kayaking activity. After all the adventurous activity, all of us start our sampling activity. Along the shore, we had collected quite large amount of padina (Guess must be the season). Around 4pm, dr khoo also stop his padina and soft coral hunting. Before we left Tj. Tuan, we took a group pictures. Here are the pictures:

After all those sweat and tiring activities and able to collect large amount of samples, all i can say this trip was really worth it. Thanks to dr khoo and my team mates friends . Before i end this post, i would like to wish everyone

HAPPY, JOlly holiday and a Happy New YEar !!

My SE, W550i

C'est La Vie

My 3rd aunty just changed her handphone ( K700 Sony ericsson) because her old handphone gave her lots of problems. Ever since that moment, i sort of fall in love to that brand instead of Nokia. Besides that, because ppl around me such as my coursemates, cousins and bla bla bla changed their nokia phone to Sony ericsson phone. From that moment onwards, i became lagi crazy ( i mean more crazy and crave for it) on chaning my handphone. I guess god must had listen to my prayers. SO coincident, my old phone (Nokia 3100) gave me a lot of problems such as sometimes it can switch off by itself or hang..and bla bla ..*lame excuses*. SErious.. after all these problems i had gone thru kinda,  it reminds me i have to choose my new handphone wisely by doing tonnes of research (not finidng journals ah..) until i’m 100% sure that Oh MY.. this is my handphone.

IT took me approximately one month…to make up my mind by my BRILLIANT research such as i asked my aunt, cousins and friends who owned SE and their personal experience and opinions (WOw.. seems like i did a GREAT job on it!). The conclusion is they said it’s good and the features is good as compared to NOKIA (well in fact , it’s true.. especially the sound quality.. *ketionk!*). So i browse through SE website.. The first handhpone i aimed was Z520i. I love clam shell handphone.. (thanx to samsung). But then, the memory capacity kinda disturbed me.. so that’s show i’m not satisfied with the features. After a couple of week, a brand new walkman handphone introduced to the market (besides w800i). That is w550i. Wa hhahah… let me tell you what so special about this handpone model. First,  it has good sound system especially stereo widening, 1.2 mp camera, 256mb built in memory eventhough it cannot be expand (i don really care because 256mb consider enough for me..). After all these hard work.. now i have to plan when is the best time to announce to the whole world my family.

The moment had arrived………………………

On the 3rd of Dec, my dad brought my whole family to KLCC. My dad asked me what i want for my XMas present (and also for my good grades present). Then i asked my dad for permission whether i can change my handphone (since it’s a bit cacated..*evil smile*). At first, my dad didn’t really like the idea because he always have the idea that i keep on my handphone (tot i changed every year.. jeezz). Then i told him those problems i’ve encountered. WAh haha…. (due to all my lame excuses) Finally, my dad agreed and we made a deal.. my dad will pay RM1000 and i’ll pay the rest. Wee… that’s it. From this moment, from nokia to Sony Ericsson.. I fianlly got my dream handphone (which i’ve waited for quite awhile).
