Terengganu For A Sec

Yesterday I went to Terengganu. The first time I've been there. I went to Kerteh and Paka. They're actually really close to each other. It was a 5 hour drive there, and a 5 hour drive back. The site visit lasted and hour and a half. So I was there the whole day!

It was painful. Just sitting there in the car, with someone who you dont really click with. Horrible. The guy wasnt horrible, just the situation was horrible. If I went with someone that I was more comfortable with it would have been so much better. But then it wasn't for vacation, it was work so, iz kool.

So it was pretty much trees all the way there and then when I got there it was just another small town. There were some extra weird things like Keropok Lekor, which I didnt try. There was this one thing I had that I have never had before. I'm not sure whether it's specific to Terengganu, but I've never seen it before. It was okayla, the lychee taste covered most everything else, but it was different. No idea what it's called.

More later...

Cendol + Lotsa Fat!

So I finally got my cendol, but it wasn't that great. I was disappointed. But oh well. I went to 2 pasar malams in the past week. I dont really like pasar malams coz it's so crowded and HOT! It makes me all hot and sweaty and gross! But I had 2 corns on the cob, and lots of fried chicken. It was very unhealthy! Aaaand, last week at a bbq(dont know how to spell it) my collegues did chicken butt! And usually I'd not even think about eating it, but I did!!! It was nasty, the thought was nasty, but I did try it and it tasted like fat. I felt it more than I tasted it, I swear I could feel myself getting fatter, and my arteries clogging.

Oh aaand...I went to eat this humungous(spelling really bad) cow leg at a malay resturant. I think they call it "gearbox" but I'm not really sure that's the real name of it. Basically, it's a huge bone with cartilidge and bits of meat in a soup. Yum yum, it's the first time I had it. Oh and plus they give you a straw and you have to suck the shit outta the middle of the bone. It's probably the bone marrow or something(looked and tasted like fat to me). Again....I could just feel myself getting fatter, again, arteries clogging...

Ice Kacang

I had Ice Kacang today, I wasnt really in the mood for it, I actually wanted Cendol, but my friend ordered wrongly. Oh well, it was good anyway.

It actually didnt look like that when I got it, but I forgot to take a picture of it till half way through so that's what you get!

Oh yeah! AN's wedding is tomorrow. Everyone in highschool is getting married! Ol got married years ago, and even has 3 kids! Let's see, Gr is getting married in August, Fe got married. So did lots of my childhood friends. *sigh*

I dont really know why I'm sighing, maybe coz I'm not sure about my own situation. And I wish I did.

I've been ambushing everyone I meet with questions and queries about working on site. I tell everyone how it's so unfair that I am not allowed to work on site just because I'm female. I'm not a hardcore feminist, but I cant understand why I'm not allowed to?! I'm bigger and fatter and stronger than most the guys I see going for the jobs. I have the same if not more education in the same field as they. The only difference I can see is that I'm female!

I talk to clients, senior personnel, engineers, technicians, even the general workers about my situation, everyone knows how passionate I am about getting my hands dirty. I want to do it! This is what I want to do! I'm that kind of person!

Anyways I think alot of people say that they support the direction that I am going, but when it comes to the real deal, it scares the shit outta them, they know that the chances for it to work out for me is really slim, so they say alot of things about how ya, they should let me go, and sure there are other girls etc. But when it comes down to taking the first step in putting me in the field, they hesitate.

I really think it's alot of bullshit and just downright unfair.

Those are my meds. I've been sick for so so long. The two in the white little plastic baggies are for phlemgn(however you spell it - it's that greenish yellow shit that gets stuck in your throat and doesnt come out, and in the end you tend to just swallow it - yucks!) and pain, lots of pain going on here.

Anyhow, I've had this snapping, crackling, knocking sound around my shoulder blades for years and years, and everytime I go to the doctor, they say it's coz I slept wrong, and that it'll go away, and they never give me anything for it.

But the doctor that I've been frequenting this past sick phase, has been a a real gem. I've been accumulating all these little symptoms like back aches, shoulder aches, joint pains, weird unsual things happening to me that just wont go away. They're not so bad to the extent of fainting or anything, but annoying pains.

So this doctor, who helped me heal my red eye, my flu, cough, etc gave me this glucoseamine sulphate. It's a supplement that old people take when their joints are worn out and there's no more lubrication left, so there's friction.

My mom takes them, they're for old people, and of course, sports people who have worn out their joints. It's so sad. I'm old and worn out. So hopefully this stuff will rejuvinate doctor has given me a months worth of glucoseamine sulphate supplements. My mom buys them for like RM1.50 per tablet. That's the other cool thing about it, my company pays for it and they dont even ask me about the money.

But if they did, I'd pay them. I need to feel better soon! One of the reasons I cant sit for long periods of time is becuase of this damn back/shoulder pain, so I can't wait till it goes away!
