Go Organic!!

Today we went organic!! I've been wanting togoto this place for quite some time oredi...our colleage Pri*am has voluntereed to drive us there. Another 2 colleagues didn't know that Pri*am and i planned togo there....they were sort of 'con' into going there wif us...hehehe...

The place is in USJ Subang Jaya. The food is good and reasonable. For a plate of brown meehoon-tomyam at RM8.90, you will be given a bowl of clear vegetable soup each, a rojak pickle, a bowl of fruits and a bowl of dessert of d day each. Ironically, after eating here, you won't feel thirsty like u used to if u goto sum other restaurants....of course msg!! Their black pepper fried rice its delicious too.

M didn't enjoy her meal cos she's a pure 'carnivouros'..hehehe....but S and me luffd it!! I don't mind goin there again.

After lunch, we browse the store and I bought a few organic foodies for myself. A seedless grape for me and a packet of sunflower seed for bee.

First day team building

We left office around 9am and all of us wore our department t-shirt. Make a stop at a nearby mamak shop for b'fast. Reached PD within 1 and a half time. Its a good day to travel cos its not hot but then it was drizzling.

Checked-in and meet up for lunch. We ordered ala-carte and shared a delicious banana-split...imagine 8 of us shared 1 ice-cream?!! But if was fun and everybody get to taste. We were kinda stucked in the hotel cos it was raining. Alas, we unanimously decided that we go for our water activities in d rain.

First, we went for kayaking. A pair with each kayak. Altho it rain but the sea-waves were not that strong, so we can kayak safely.

After kayak, we all went for a banana-boat ride. Its my first time and i enjoyed it sooo much!!...i was having so much fun, i had to wave to the camera in tis pic...hehehe...

Our last water activity, a speed-boat bumpy-ride , we had to be split into 2 groups cos the boat can only take 4 passengers. The driver took us to a place where they have corals and we're supposed to feed the fishes. I tink we were sorta 'conned' ....cos there wasn't any fish....or maybe d fish didn't wanna come up cos its was raining??

After all the activities, we all went back to our rooms to refresh ourselves. Went to Legend Water Chalet (which is about 20min drive from our hotel) to have our dinner. Food was not that good but the place is nice tho'.

After diner and back to our hotel, we went to check out their lounge cos they have a live-band that nite. Coincidently, the hotel top management was having a 'screen-test', to choose a suitable live-band for their hotel. The GM, F&B, Sales Director was there to entertain us too. So some of our drinks were on the house!!

I loike d lounge cos its by d beach side...and so its breezy. We stayed till after midnite.

Day Two and Day Three of our Teambuilding

Our second day of teambuiling were at Eagle Ranch, Port Dickson. Its a 15mins drive from our hotel. Tis place is known for its teambuilding activities.

Today, we're supposed to do a 20 obstacles teambuilgin and one of them is absailing. I was sooo determine todo absailing (when i was in KL lah) but in the end, when i reached the place, i was very very reluctant becos i was afraid for my ankle plus i also chiken out lah....hehehe.... The height of the thing is quite scarry woh (not sumtin dat i had in mind). In the end only 3 people from our team did it!!. Hats-off to them for having the guts todo it, one of em is of course lah our ahboss.

After absalling we had to complete another 19 obstacles. I only did those which will not hurt/aggrivate my ankle. It was so much fun cos we all get to destressed ourselves.

Later we were taken for a horse ride and go-kart, (2 of the sports that i'm familiar with). Lastly we did treasure hunt. All the activities were supposed to end in the evening but we managed to complete all within half a day (a record time...wink*wink*hahahaha...)

We all had lunch at a cafe at Eagle Ranch. Reached our hotel around 3pm. Since its still early, some of us decided to play Pictionary. Our boss and 2 of our collegues didn't join....but we had so much fun playin'. We gave ourselves 1 and a half hour to play. Later 3 of us went to the pool for a nice dip before we get ready for dinner at the so called famous seafood restaurant....but we get to see beutiful sunset from our restaurant.

After dinner, we adjourned to the coffeehouse for our Haagan Daz Banana Split (2nd time, d concotion is delicious, hence we wanted to have it again). After ice-cream, we all lepaq at the lounge to listen to the live-band. A 3 piece guy band.....

The next day, the 4 of us woke up early to go for 'power-walk'.... to explore the beach and hotel's front area. After the walk, we adjourned for breakfast. Go back to our rooms and pack. Had lunch at the hotel's chinese restaurant, complimenary for the F&B Mgr.

Left the hotel around 2pm and reached our office safely. It was a heck of a teambuilding & we enjoyed 'em to the max!!

Premium Cherries

Yes, me lurveee cherries, besides strawberries. Not a big fan of blueberries, cranberries, blackberries or rasberries except if they're in a 'jam' form.

Must thank Aunty M for buying me a box of delicious, fresh and sweet cherries. Thank you...thank you...thank you!!

Dim Sum before the fasting month

Cuzin F.Cantona is craving for dimsum!!! She said we muz have our dose of dimsum before d fasting month starts. Bee said he dowana go drive all the way to KL to have dimsum, hence he said Quality hotel in Shahalam had a promotion. So Aunty M and cuzin F.Cantona agreed to to have it there. So today everyone of us are available, didn't make any reservation, so we juz walk-in. We were the first to reach the restaurant but later the place was almost full.

The price is reasonable...and their dimsum?? Memang sedap!!! We called out the chef to thank him on his delicious dimsum. They had variety of dimsums and the buffet table that served desserts were aplenty. Their selection of steam and fried, memang best!!

The hotel after their renovation is so much better. After dimsum, we juz walk across the road togoto Plaza Alam Sentral for jalan-jalan before all of us went back to our homes to rest.

We planned to got there again...maybe after the fasting month pulak..hehehe...
