I actually haven't updated on the things That i've done in over.. 3 weeks..
gosh.. but I've been posting a lot of rubbish =P

Let's get this started.. The last standard post was this one.
The following weekend on the 8th, I went to Kapar for Qing Ming. This time it was for my departed grandfather.
It's a little blurry now the memory.. but, I remember... the day before he passed away.
The doctor told us that there's nothing more to be done.. We took him home..Took him to a nice dinner with his whole family... He looked more alert than he had in a while. It is said that just before you're about to pass on, you find a reserve of energy to do things. Something like seeking closure..
Anyway, after the dinner, I think they sent him home and we all went home.
The next day, the news came. He passed away in the night in his sleep.. yeap... I don't know him well. We have this thing called a communication barrier. He speaks hokkien, I speak mandarin.. so we never talked much.
Would have been cool to ask him like how his childhood was like and etc.. (he's from china and if I remember correctly, he was really young and so they carried him and walked out of the village to leave the country. The bus ride that we took in 2004 to get to the village took 2 hours from the state capital.
I must say I'm quite grateful that he took that journey.. =)

Okay.. let's see
ppl i've met over the past 3 weeks.. new and old (no particular order)
Yew Wen - the brother actually dropped by one night to chill for a bit. Also met him for lunch on one of the sundays. (one out of 3)
Sue and Rachel @ Skybar when I joined Jo-Lyn and her gang for some chill out session at one of the few.. open air (read no air-condition) places around. It's actually a nice place, my only gripe is that it's fucking open air.. Drinks here are a little pricey and the service is also a little poor but I think it's more to do with the lack of staff than anything else.
Also a surprising thing was there was actually a queue. Oh and I bumped into my cousin and his wife and their friends.. They were leaving then I was about to get a place to sit down.. *sigh*
Eugene - The friendly Ean look alike. By all accounts, the nicer guy.. =) First time was at Bangsar Village along with Sue Lyn and Jo-Lyn
Debbie, Kwong Heng, Chen Hoe - Dinner at Rakuzen on the 14th. Went to Tiff's after that.. Sat there till close to closing time.. Oh I think had beef noodles too. yum =)
Tien Nee - It was her bday on the 7th April and we did a little surprise thing which took a wee bit more planning than usual. Small group. Lots of eye-rolling due to me, Floyd, Kwong Heng being on song that night.. =P ahaha
Wyn Ni - with Sook Yee at Coffeebean on the 6th April. Then she came along saturday as well for the bday.. She's amusing that one.. =)
Jo-Lyn - various places.. even dinner at her house once which caused an aborted Prawn Mee session..
Sook Yee - various.. lost count. She went to Germany n France for the past 2 weeks. (grammar wrong but wth)
Yeok Cheng - various.. movies at her place, dinner, etc.. oh Rascal's really big now.. grew a lot in the weeks that I didn't see him.
Albert, Serina, Kathleen, Joa, Pete, Pat - Albert's bday was last friday. Celebrated it at Max, this restaurant on Tengkat Tung Shin right next to Sao Nam.
Highly recommend the seared tuna for starters and the cod main course is.. delish =) Oh I also bumped into another cousin there.. sigh..
Eunice - haven't seen her in a while.. met her to collect some stuff then chatted some.
Sue Lyn - this best friend of Jo-Lyn seems interesting enough and quite forthright and judgemental.. I find these kind of personalities as the type where u either love that person or u hate that person.. no room for the fence sitters. =) No, I don't hate her. I even gave her a cd.. though it was more Jo-Lyn giving it.. I just went with the flow.. =P
I have yet to meet Julian.. =P
Joanna - met her at Leo's last night along with Lionel, Adrian, King. Also met ermm.. Kel Li, Wendy

Places that I've been to in the past 3 weeks
Max - nice little restaurant at Tengkat Tung Shin
Rakuzen - Plaza Damas, very busy.. food was as expected. Good =)
Tiff's - Jazz bar over at starhill
Noble House - Food there is always good. Dinner function for one of our suppliers.
Prime @ Le Meridien - yum.. =) oh weird story .. =) Ben who works as a DJ over at Fly FM.. he called me up and asked me what to order at Prime..  I was like.. dude.. I haven't heard from you in a while and u called me up to tell you what to order? =P
I think they had the lamb shank in the end and a steak.. not sure
Chien Kee - New restaurant in Damansara Kim. Same row as Supertanker Restaurant. Nice food. Not too expensive.

Ermm.. also been watching a bit of One Tree Hill. Finally completed season 2 after a 1 month hiatus..
Where do I find the time you ask, I stayed home.. =)

"Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature's changing course, untrimm'd;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest;
So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee."

William Shakespeare - Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
