Tonight , another over the sea trip, stopping over in Kota Kinabalu for a night and then jump onto the express tomorrow morning to the duty free island called Labuan to attend a wedding there. This is also my frist trip there so surely I will be come with lots of photos.
Everybody is telling these:
1. Labuan is a very boring place that you can finish exploring in a day
2. Lots of Indonesians there
3. Lots of Philipinos there
4. Cheap beer and wine
5. Cheap chocolates
6. Cheap perfumes
7. Cheap seafood
8. Lots of imported branded cars on the road
9. Beautiful sunsets
10.Lots of " social escorts" there

That is the reason I need to be there to find out whether all these are true.

See you and take care till I am back.

Sports Days are usually fun day for us, we treated it as family outing and of course it comes with lots of works too.It all depends how we look at it, if you treat it as a serious day, then it is going to be very stressful indeed. But if you look at it from the fun perspective , then it is very enjoyable despite of people complaining right and left about results , positions, delays in events, etc etc.

The photos below shows you the 2 sides of life: work and fun.


More work:

Still working:

Work... work... work ....

Every year we have the tradition of taking the staff photo after the Teachers Day Celebration, so here we are, a big family of Josephians.

We had our own lunch at Hoilday Inn after all those celebrations.

Went for a reunion dinner last night , meeting my old classmates of 34 years ago and I haven't met them for the last 34 years. They brought along our old class photos( Did I lost mine or did I buy?) Most probably I didn't buy cos my family was too poor at that time. we couldn't afford even 3 meals a day at that time , what more to say buying class photos?

With invention of digicams, when we saw our old class photos, the obvious reactions were snapped and snapped and recalling all the names of those faces there including our teachers. Teachers who had threw dusters at us and also teachers who were really really dedicated and loved by us.

Form 3 (1972)

Form 5 (1974)

Can you find me there? ( clue: I was standing at the same corner for both the photos ....reason - too tall...)

Got this result from Majlis Peperiksaan Malaysia Website cos I don't want to waste 50sen for SMSing my result from that 39003 number.

Hence overall result is:

After trying, striving and thriving for 4 years, at last I got this...and people studying for 4 years can get a degree liao but we after studying for 4 years get a Grade IV without any mortar board ......sigh... sigh...sigh and the biggest SIGH now is : if PTK is abolished as fought by Cuepacs, will this be of any more use to me...??????

It has been 20+ days since my last entry and my devoted visitor to my blog was asking me why everyday my blog only show Manukan one.... reason busy busy so many things happening last 20 days

1. Chasing after the deadline of SR - aiming to earn USD 100 this month..will only know how much I get in 5-6 days time

2. Booking the 6D/5N cruise for my end of year holiday which will also concide with my 51st birthday way to celebrate birthday hor. Got quite a cheap deal during the recent Singapore Tourism Carnival. The Gemini Cruise will sail from Port Klang/Penang/Krabi/Phuket/Langkawi/Port Klang. It will be a family trip and spending quality time with son#1. Fare per person is RM 1374 for a pampered holiday. For every cabin booked , a FREE DVD player( Made in Malaysia) will be given.

3. 3 nights before, I got a phone call from my god-brother(who is also my cousin)inviting me to Labuan for his eldset son's wedding during this end of May school holiday. Since I have never been to Labuan, without much consideration we booked 2 tickets ( for me and husband) to KK then use ferry to Labuan. Aisehman...never been to KK before, but now 2 KK trips a year....haha

4. Helping son#2 to get important documents for his UK visa extension before he flies back for his hoilday in July.

5. Searching internet for cheap fare for son#2 to fly Manchester-KL and being the peak season for summer holidays and convo season in UK, it seems that flying Manchester - Dubai is no problem but Dubai -KL is a big big problem cos all the flights from Dubai-KL is fully booked as Dubai is now the collecting point for all European and Africa travellers!! In the end we did managed to get a GBP 700 for a return fare while SIA charge GBP 1500 for a return fare during the same season!!

On reflection, this year I really have so many holiday trips:

May- KK, Labuan
Sept- Bali
December- Genting, Cameron Highlands, Cruise, then maybe go Bukit Kayu Hitam
