Easter Weekend in Kuantan

>> Monday, April 13, 2009

Dates: 10-13 April 2009, Friday-Monday
Venue: Kuantan
Occasion: Easter weekend/Home-coming

Woohoo!! I just came back from Kuantan :D It was a rather refreshing weekend-getaway...or a somewhat 'home-coming' back to the town which I kinda claimed as my own several years back...hahaha...

All I did for the 3+days in Kuantan were sleep, eat, & meet up with people....lol. Super slacker man...but awesome nonetheless!

I arrived on Thursday night/Friday midnight after work & didn't do anything much except to visit the Teluk Cempedak beach & called it a night...what a Thursday...

Day 1
I pretty much spent Day 1 lazing away... what a break after several weeks of work, work, work :P I had brunch at San Hin in Air Putih with uncle Francis, before spending the rest of the afternoon at aunty Helen's house, just chit-chatting, playing with the new doggie (Benji), & playing with Phoebe :) Nice. A day well-spent, I would say. Hahaha....

Super cute, right??! :D

At night, I went to the Chew's residence with Aaron for a birthday+engagement party. Food was really good (mostly home-cooked by different families) & the fellowship was nice :) I had a good time there....hehehe....what a night....after dinner was lazing at his place before heading back my home for the night's rest.

Day 2
One of the rare days that I will wake up early...hahaha...I woke up at 6.10am to prepare breakfast & pack to catch the sunrise at the beach...I was late!! Bleagh :( Thank God for holding the sunrise...the placed clouds to block the sun before I sat on the beach! As soon as we got ourselves comfy at the beach, the sun peeked from behind the clouds & greeted us "good morning". Lovely!! :D *joy*

After catching the sunrise, we went home to watch Pink Panther 2, lazed, & played Winning-11 (football game)! It was my first time playing such a game & Aaron was my sifu & team player :P I've bare minimum knowledge on football i.e. 22 players on the field & one full time = 90minutes! Hahaha...it was super funny. It has been ages since I held any joysticks (or whatever you call those) & played computer games with those equipment :D Fun!

We brought Abigail & Nichol out to the mall after that for some shopping & just to spend some time with them. If not, they'll be thinking why their chi-chi (sister) never spend time with them at all while she's in Kuantan :)

I had a nap after shopping while the kids watched tv at home & Aaron went for practice in church...when he was done with practice, I went over to his place, had dinner, & left for Resurrection Service at his church before heading back to my place to watch football....another day gone :( time flies!

Day 3
We didn't wake up for Sunrise Service at 6.30am, by the Taman Gelora beach! It was kinda drizzling, so we got a 'lil lazy & slept in instead :P It was one of the first times where I missed Sunrise Service when I'm in Kuatan...

We met up for a simple roti telur breakfast at Zam-Zam instead. Not too bad...the roti telur was actually quite nice. Apparently it was one of the better roti telurs in town...as for the rest of the food, I can't guarantee anything...

It was yet another rare occasion that Aaron's family attended service at Wesley :D It was great to be back at the church which I called my own for the past few years (during my uni days). I haven't attended Wesley's service with him, so it was rather different for once :) Meeting back with old friends & keeping each other updated was really good...I had a good time of worship & fellowship at church ;) It was raining after church service, so we ended up snoozing (again) before heading out for dinner around 7.15pm...





Dinner was with aunty Helen, Calvin, Rachel (zha-bo/cha-bo), Nichol, Phoebe, uncle Francis, aunty Ros, Abishua, Pao, & Abigail at a recommended restaurant for roast duck noodles. The roast duck was REALLY FANTASTIC!! *drools*

I would highly recommend it...the meat was tender & the best part was the skin - crispy!!! *crunch crunch* I wished to have more! Hahaha...the noodles was just a simple 'wan tan mee' kinda noodles with minced meat in dark sauce. Overall, the price was reasonable...the only set-back is the waiting time for the food to be served. We had to wait quite long for our food, but as what uncle Francis said, it was worth the wait :)



Drooling already...? :P

Operating Hours:
Dinner time until 2.30am (if I'm not mistaken)



After dinner, Aaron & I went out for 'yum-cha' session with Michel & Michael at Taj in town. We didn't stay for very long cos it was getting very late & Aaron had to work the next day. The yum-cha session was good :) We did quite some catch up & I got to bond a 'lil more with both Mich & Mike, who are Aaron's close friends...

We sent the siblings back & headed to uncle Francis' place, where I stayed. Lazing is really the main part of our agenda....lol...we watched some vampire movie called "True Blood" & got hooked to that, 'til we decided to call it a night & he went home...

Day 4
*sigh* And so this day marks the end of my 'holiday'! *sobs* I woke up at 6.30am & Aaron came to pick me to the bus terminal around 7.10am...I left Kuantan on the 8am bus with Michel. Throughout the entire journey, yours truly slept (again!!) & rested all too well...kakakaka....super "sleeping beauty" :P

Michel & I got down at the Puduraya terminal in KL & had a lovely lunch at Shin Kee. A bowl of beef noodles costs RM6.00 (beef noodles are quite expensive), but it was worth paying the price for such quality food :D It was my 2nd time eating this beef noodles (1st time was with a good friend YShiong) & I could have more! *drools* Highly recommended!

Aaron looks like his hands could squish the dog...

-> Chris: *LOL* Totally!!! The doggie is really small & I reckon he will kill the poor smallie if he just accidentally sits on Benji! Even when the kiddo Phoebe accidentally stepped on Benji's paw, that Benji was literally 'crying' d...SOOooo kesian!!
