I remembered when I was in high school and when exams are just around the corner, the most visited place would be McDonald's because you get to sit & study there for as long as you want, with free wifi as well as Coke refills and our 'reward' would be trips as well as going out with friends after the examination
Now that I'm in College or leaving College soon, everything is the other way around hahahaha!! Starbucks instead of McDonald's as well as trips before examinations and in my head all i can think about it, 'Heck, I'm earning some cash from part time jobs & I don't need to rely much from my mum so I can go for trips FIRST then die studying last minute for exams...'
Don't be like that though even though it is fun, it creates lazy bones as well as lazy brain
Last week, thanks to my boyfriend's close knitted family & relatives, I got a chance to go to Sekinchan and to find out fun things to do there.
Woke up pretty early and headed off to Sekinchan.
Reached there just in time for lunch, although I wasn't very keen of the menu but I was still pretty much excited for the other activities
Shark meat | Mantis prawn | Shark meat porridge | Fruit juice
I only ate the fishball that was in the shark meat porridge because I'm one of those people that will go around preaching & supports that no one should kill sharks for the meat or just to make some expensive sharkfin soup.
All the time I was looking around the whole restaurant, feeling a little sad deep down to see that there are so many people that would come all the way to Sekinchan & queue under the hot sun just to eat some shark meat that tasted like fish, according to my boyfriend & his twin sisters.
Then we visited a temple to pay respects and we were off to the beach in Sekinchan!
I never knew there's a beach in Sekinchan! It was also my first time seeing old fishing boats slowly coming back to the shore with their catch of the day, sorry yea, I've been living with tall buildings and heat for as long as I can remember so I get very excited at the mention of 'BEACH'...
Me and boyfriend's sisters
We had our backs turned towards the camera because we wanna capture the sea view at the same time we did not want our hair to be flying all across our face
Too bad it was very sunny when we were there, if not there'll be more pictures and I'll definitely take off my shoes & lay on the beach :)
This is also my first time being on a paddy field and in the factory, I wasn't keen on the rice sold there though but I found this DELICIOUSLY home-made popcorn!!! I regretted buying only 1 of each flavor! Should have bought all back (ugh)
Beats every type of popcorn that you can find at the cinemas and yes, I'm not a big fan of overly prices Garrett popcorn that went viral for a while when it came to Malaysia.. Haven't try it before because it is overly priced!
This here was only RM3.50 for one can
Our last stop & main 'highlight' is dinner!
I really love how organized and how everything was perfectly timed and done, all thanks to boyfriend's mummy :) No time wasted but still enjoyed the trip
Some of you might know that I do not fancy Chinese food for breakfast, lunch & dinner but boyfriend's family really knows where to eat the yummiest Chinese cuisine, so thanks to them, I'm a little straighten back to my roots, actually look forward to any invitations for Chinese cuisine :)
Was a lost on the way back from Sekinchan to Kuala Lumpur, what supposingly was a 2 hour drive (cause it was jammed and all during the festive season) became a 4 hour drive!!!
Lost also never mind but getting lost in a one lane dark area was another issue
Thank God for good reception in Sekinchan, I pulled out Waze & Wazed home...
I've decided to blog about this because my brain doesn't wanna study for this Friday's paper, instead my brain is asking for more vacation as such.
No brain, your owner has no money so better shut up and concentrate
