Desert Song - Brooke Fraser

A song that can be used as a prayer when you feel all is lost and no one is with you...

INA - SG - KL - SG - INA

Hmm where do i start..

This trip for me had MANCHESTER UNITED printed all over my passport, tickets and luggage even before i left.

And so it won't probably be a suprise for many if this post only talks about my team, Manchester United :p But please bear for a while till my photos are uploaded.

Instead i felt that i grew a bit more after my recent trip to KL (not sideways if you are wondering :p).
During the trip, i stayed @ my friend's house and i felt like i was treated like 1 of their own, 1 of their children, brothers and it's really the best treatment i could ever asked for from a host family. The truthfulness and generosity from their words and action really seeps into your heart...

But still, even though it had only been 2 short days in KL, after leaving friends (and their families) there behind, it made me feel a tinge of loneliness that made me wonder why should there be partings and separations in our life again... yes again... like a case of Deja Vu it made me remember that without these seperations, we probably won't cherish the time spent with each other as much.

I'm sure there will be more separations and meetings further down in the path of my life and i just hope i will treasure each and every one of them.

PS: Thanks Derrick & Lex!

Aight! Time to showcase some of the food in Indonesia that is just so splendid they ought to be franchised over to Singapore hehe...

First up are deserts!

This looks like a simple mixed fruits cut right? You are not wrong but it's the hidden sauce at the top left corner that deserves a mention. Not to mention that it only cost IDR5000 (roughly 80 cents) for the below mix.

Pineapple + Watermelon + Papaya
It is a special peanut sauce made up from peanuts (duh!), gula melaka, grounded chilli padi and a special secret mix of brown sauce. Not only does it taste sweet but it's hot at the same time making fruits taste nicer and fresher. You may wonder if chilli goes well with fruits but for us Indonesians, we eat chilli with almost everything you can imagine.

Next up, Ice Creams !!!

I'm not really a big fan of ice creams, but i love it when it's mixed with either brownies, waffles or fruits etc. It just gives ice cream the additional texture and taste which is mssing with normal ice cream.

I'm not too sure if Haagen Dazs in Singapore serve such ice creams platter but the ones here sure does. And the ice cream served with the toppings are customizable. Good timing to eat ice cream as well since the weather is slowly but surely turning hot here in Indonesia.

Mango Tango - Mango IC + Coffee IC + assorted fruits
Honey coated waffle + Mango passion IC + Baileys IC

Gear Up

Woohooo! New kits to use for the next futsal outing.

I got the shoes from Queensway only @ SGD49, really a steal imo even to use it as a normal sneakers. Though it would look kinda strange i guess with the mini stud grooves... hehe..

Sadly it doesn't come in red base

On top of the shoes, on an impulse I also picked up 3 more original jerseys to add to my collection. The fonts are all champions league's and they look really nice with the mini club logos incorporated in the number set. They are, from left to right:

Juventus - Away - Del Piero - 10

Inter Milan - Home - Ibrahimovic - 8

Barcelona - Home - Messi - 10

And *drum roll* the last piece of jigsaw to complete my jersey puzzle!! TA-DA!!

I have been looking high & low for a goalkeeper jersey but it seems like everybody is having trouble getting the original replicas in their hands. However I managed to find this seller in a local forum that does goalkeeper replica jerseys from Thailand. Obviously this is not original T______T but i'm really desperate for one so I went into the dark side.

My precious VDS jersey
Would love a 90s goalie jersey of Peter Schmeichel

Home sweet home... Singapore??

My last singapore stopover before returning back to Indonesia has been a very pleasant one so far. Hanging out with friends, talking about the past, watching football with groups of friends has really been heart warming.

Once a group of friends taught me the importance of true friendship and before i departed from Singapore for good, they gave me these golden words that would be in my memory forever i hope.

"Best friends are like siblings that God never gave you"

I would though prefer to add another line.

"Best friends are like siblings that God never gave you
he wants to teach you the lesson of being thankful for them"

Day 6 - Guangzhou

Back to Guangzhou at last after a gruelling air flight marathon spanning 6 cities in 5 days. I wonder how those senior citizens can take this type of schedule when I'm already on the brink of giving up after the Beijing - Wuhan flight.

Since we are back here, It's time to do last minute shopping. Not that I have much time though since I only have a day and there is so much things to buy.

Okay to recap, these are the places (in random order) you want to go in Guangzhou for really cheap stuff.

步云天地 - For all kinds of shoes, men, women, children and etc

Roads between
步云天地 & 站西路 - Sells all sorts of sports related merchandise from jerseys and socks to collectibles and accessories.

站西路 - Replica watch & silver accessorieswholesale market

北京路 - A place to hang out, eat and a lot of Giordano-ish fashion outlets

白马广场 - For ladies fashion, level 1-2 only allows bulk shopping if i'm not wrong.

天河电脑城 - 5-6 SLS sized buildings lined up from 1 street to the end, go imagine. There is also a large generic shopping mall nearby - Tee Mall

Xiang Xia Jiu - I don't know the 汉字 for this place but taxi drivers should know. It's very similar to Bei Jing Lu but more catered to the teenagers market like Far East Plaza and old Heeren lvl 5. I did manage to take a picture of the place though.

TBC, need to rush off to catch my flight :p

Edit: Added some more locations

Day 5 - Wu Han

Not much things to note in this city which was named by taking the first 2 characters of the neighbouring cities - Wu Chang & Han Kou. We were here to visit a laser machinery company that could help us in our embroidery work. Turns out the machine was so good that we were really glad we made the trip. I hope this machine can aid us in this lousy financial year!

Some shots from Wuhan airport and the airplane that is about to bring us back to Guangzhou.
