It’s time for the dog’s bath! It’s funny to see a dog that is afraid of water.

A Week in Malaysia: Day 4

Don’t kill me but today was such a lazy day. After all the commotion of Days 1 to 3, we decided to take it really slow. So slow, we didn’t go anywhere notable.

We actually, went on a chocolate run. We received reports that chocolates are really cheap here in Malaysia. So, to source these chocolates, we made our way to MyDin near Pasar Seni station. Here, we found Cadburry bars for MYR 5.80. So, a PHP 120 bar of chocolate can be bought for just PHP 70, loosely converted.

It was lunch time by then, so we made our way to Hakka Restaurant behind Pavillion Mall. Thank you, GoKL buses!

Hakka Restaurant is listed as one of the best eats in Kuala Lumpur. Hakka Restaurant has been here since 1956.

They have the sweetest honeydew drink which I really though will really just taste like water.

This is our menu for today: spicy shrimp (but awfully delicious), kangkong sauteed in garlic, fried chicken, and Hakka style noodles. It was filling and very delicious. No wonder they stayed here for 61 years. And, there were a lot of Chinese customers – so it probably rings well as a Chinese restaurant.

After a blissful lunch, we went back to the apartment, had our siesta, dipped into the pool, looked at the Merdaka Day celebrations, and drank to our hearts’ content.

The company volleyball tournament started today. And with that, surprise guests decided to drop by. Members of the Gilas Pilipinas sent to the Asian Champions Cup are practicing on the other side of the wall.

It was a fun exhibition before the start of the program.

 

Fun Times


We entered the festival area today. The crowd is considerably less than the weekend crowd. 

The line to the activities were shorter. I wonder, though, why most of the activities are violent in nature?

Maybe it’s the Korean way of letting of steam. But, what is also important to notice is that everyone are friends in the end.

I was afraid to try the activities because I might go game face on them. My competitive spirit might not distinguish playtime from a tournament.

From Seoul, I went to Boryeong to join in the Boryeong Mud Festival. And since it was the weekend, the place was packed! We didn’t go inside the mud area because (1) we arrived at around 2 PM and (2) there were really a lot of people.

It was a fun experience and a different kind of celebration that is by the beach!

I am really thankful that the high school alumni association is organizing an all-alumni volleyball tournament. This is the off-season and we were grouped into teams.

Hoping to a successful and fun season!
