返乡成功!

上个星期六成功回家了!之前吾心还忐忑不安呢!因为雨停了没几天而已,而真担心永平往三合港地其中一个低洼路段之水位未退。好在一路顺风,呵呵。

在心里还不安的时候,老神在在地在永平市区查找福州蛋面所在。嗯,是一本书介绍的。照着书中地图,不费吹灰之力就找到了。那儿还有个美眉哦!尝了几口,蛮特别的,但是并不是很适合我的胃口,不过可能适合你的呢?!呵呵。





吃着吃着,雨就下了,幸好是一场小雨而已。



吃完上路,拍了路边的积水区。

第二波水灾记 - 返乡受阻

上个星期六虽然得知水灾灾情相当严重,但还是抱着半信半疑的态度,尝试返乡,毕竟人云亦云时常发生,且容易出错。我在新山载了也想回乡的朋友后,就往永平方向出发了。概欲回乡,必经永平。到了永平时,发现市区一如往常,心里稍安,可惜在之后的路程就不甚顺利了。

出了市区,一眼望尽,水淹处处,我尝试冲出三个淹水地路段后就被前面更多更高更猛的淹水处吓着了。我与朋友考虑着该不该继续往前走,因为失败的话后果是相当严重的。在斟酌了片刻后决定还是放弃了。因为前面路途还遥远着,我们也担心即使到了还回不回得来。最后打道而返。此行浪费了车油与精神,还好吃了些永平著名食物,稍慰心情。

这里是淹水路段(永平前往三合港的路段)的照片:






Lucky , Unlucky

Last week i was supposed to go back to my hometown with my friends. Before that there were a heavy rain for a few days in Johor so we were worried whether we would be able to make it or not. In the end we decided to give a try. On Saturday morning i met him at Cityquare, we had our lunch there and moved on to our journey. By the time we reached Yong Peng it was already 2 something in the noon. Here we faced our first obstacle. The road was filled by water but the water level was not that high for a car. I easily got through. I managed to penetrate through 3 times. However, for the 4th one i started to get worried. The water level was high & it was flowing rapidly. I started to consider what would be the outcome if my car broke down in the middle of the stream. I had a long discussion with my friend and both of us decided not to take this risk as we only managed to finish our first half journey. What lies ahead could be a few more tougher condition. I thus turned my car back. I got passed the first flooded area and then i reached the 2nd one. My goodness... this time it was higher than just now already. It was 2 feet more and the water was flowing fast. As there is no other choice already, i kept pressing my oil pedal and praying that the car in front would not stop suddenly.
Luckily i managed to got passed in the end. After that me & my friend were looking for famous food in Yong Peng to eat and we got what we wanted after a long searching. At night we went to a shopping center in Johor Bahru so i could look for an old movie soundtrack After that we had our dinner at Anjung Warisan just before i sent him to the Malaysia custom.

The next day, i woke up at 11 something. Initially I was trying to call one of my ex-colleagues out but she was not free that day so i moved on to my 2nd plan. After having a leisure breakfast at one new coffee shop in Kulai. I drove to Jusco Terbrau City to visit its bookstore -- Harris. I reached there at around 2 something. I left the bookstore at around 4 something and went to buy movie's ticket. While waiting for the movie to start, i was wandering around and got my parents & my gf's parents some nice packaged food. I also applied Jusco Card. At around 5:45 i rushed to the cinema as the movie was about to start at 5:50pm. Fortunately i did not miss the beginning part. It was an average movie. Its title is "The Return". Anyway, if you have the patience reading up to this part i will strongly suggest you that not to watch that in cinema. The movie ended at 7:20pm and i moved on to Harris again. There i bought 3 books about China & World History which cost me RM200. That time was already 9pm and i decided to have my dinner at Sushi King which cost me RM21! On the way to Sushi King i bought 1 shirt to myself and 1 shirt for my gf for Valentine's present at Levi's. That cost me about RM150! What a big spender you think! haha.

I went back home with a very much satisfactory & leisure mood. Even tough i did not manage to find the soundtrack i am longing for, but at least i enjoyed & got myself t-shirt & nice books. That's great, isn't that. Being alone sometimes can be enjoyable as nobody will have to stop you from going to places you want and you don't need to force yourself to go to places they like but you don't like either way.

華美茶餐室美食之旅記

有一天我往新山市区办事去,偶经一间老式海南咖啡馆,望了望招牌,突然想起了似曾相识,几番思考后,啊!原来是在一本介绍美食的书本看到的。当时已经午间三点多,肚子已饱,但抱着美食不可错过的心态,还是入内一试了。

里面洋溢着我喜欢的老式海南气氛,不禁遥想着殖民时来马工作的海南人的辛劳,他们代表着华人一支,见证了国家从殖民地时期过渡到如今,也为大马独特的多元文化做出了卓越的贡献。

我攀上了二楼,找了个靠窗的位置坐下,看出窗外,远处的新加坡移民厅遥遥可见,若隐若现的笼罩在一片迷蒙中。

来招待的是两位上了年纪的妇女,其中一位和蔼可亲,倍觉温暖。不说这么多,让你们看看那美味的食物。

我叫了一杯咖啡C和一片炭考面包,涂上了浓厚的牛油块和加椰(大马的特产吧?恕我平时不做考察)


吃着美味的面包,喝着还算不错的海南咖啡,我欣赏着窗外的一片车水马龙,打量着熙来攘往的人群。在想,好不容易来到这儿,总该吃多点吧!就叫了一盘煎散蛋搭配绿豆及土豆,嗯,也很不错哦!


接着我环顾店内四周,发现了一样有趣的东西。其中一位妇女员工正拉着井水呢!哈哈,不要误会,那不是井水,而是楼下厨师煮了食物后送上来的方式。很有趣呢!


消磨了一阵子,到了该走的时间了。其中一位妇女员工开了一张单给我,说我需在楼下还钱。在楼下等待的当儿,又看到了一样东西。一架老古董收账机,我可是头一遭见识此物。


离开了华美茶餐室,在车内拍摄了一张其店外表,为这次之旅作了一个总结。
