weekend escapade to Jerejak

Unlike Tesol 2, Tesol 1 has never planned any class trip before. We thought of having a class trip, enjoy a great weekend together before we off to Sydney next year. This semester, we have planned for a class trip like FINALLY!! We decided to go to Pulau Jerejak as it is the nearest place for us to go..Not only the classmates, the course mates from the other classes joined us too. My class had gone through a hard time *like only God knows* during the preparation for this trip! However, I can see that everyone was quite happy during the trip.. Well, that's based on my observation..maybe it's wrong too..but I think this is the best trip ever that I have with my course mates! a bunch of great people, great food, great activities and great project manager too!! I can only say that I had lotsa fun during the trip and I took a lot of photos too!! such a great weekend that I had spent at there... =)

Penang Bridge looks so beautiful from the jetty..

No outside food allowed but we brought our own nasi lemak..what an irony!!hahaha
*thanks for the ones who sponsored the nasi lemak*

cam whore around is a must!!!
*Ridz's attire looks like he is going to aerobic class*

p/s: I love my domo T shirt :)

a memory at the jetty before going to the ferry :)

prayer for a blessed journey before we off to Jerejak..

project manager briefing..

off we go to Jerejak..bye bye Penang island

camera freaks like us, took photo to kill time when we were on the ferry..

some..err..I have no idea what they were doing..maybe explore something new..hehehe

Finally we reached Jerejak!!!

at the resort's lobby..

while waiting for the trainer to come,

the camera freaks will always do the same thing to kill time!!

and some asked me to be their "camera woman"..

some played congkak ..

and some had meeting/gossip at the lobby!!lolol...

After awhile, the trainer came and due to safety problem we cancelled jungle trekking and proceed to the next activity thatthey had planned for us!

kicked start with the rock climbing!

"Ridz: strike a pose when you see a camera!!! this is what a bitch does.."

and even more joined us!!

the trainer taught us about things to do before we start doing the rock climbing..

preparing ourselves for rock climbing..

yeah, we are ready for the challenge!!wohoo..

this trip helped to strengthen our bond regardless our race too!!

queue for our turn for the rock climbing..

Annyss and Qya were the first ones to go for it..

looking at Qya,the spider woman, I thought that rock climbing was quite easy!!

but it was not when I am doing it!! seriously, my fingers were so painful, my shoes were slippery and I keep on falling down!!At last, I give up!!I realized that the hands must be very strong in doing rock climbing!!
*first activity>> *tetttt* failed!!!*

second activity: rappelling!!

see, Nenynie looks so enthusiastic!!hahaha...

that's me!!!hehehehe...
*second activity: *ding ding* pass with flying colours!!!*

After rock climbing and rappelling..what's the next???


Syazwan looks like very expert neh..heheheh

the gedik one!!hahahahah...

and me!!! huhuhu...

at least my arrow is on the board, not on the grass..hehehe
*third activity: *ding ding* passed!!!*

After the archery. it's time for lunch!!!!

out of expectation, we had buffet lunch and the food were so much more delicious than the Tesl Raya's buffet!! *personal opinion, no offence*
The food were so nice, so no further elaboration coz I was busying eating!!

After nom nom, it's time to continue with the activities!!!
before we cross the suspended bridge..and then we did flying fox!!!
it was so fun!!!! *too bad, I don't have the photo!!*

After all the activities, we went cycling around the island..It was adventurous and I did recalled back the memories during my childhood..and I just realized I seldom went out for cycling when I was a child because my mom doesn't allow me to do so!! what a sad childhood :'( lolol.. Besides, we played at the swimming pool too..bath before we left too :)
At 6pm, we prepared ourselves and left the island...
the captain was teaching them how to control the boat!!!
seriously, I can only say that they are so energetic!!!

we were very tired!!! the so called "nyawa-nyawa ikan"...

last but not least, the group photo!!!

Jerejak is an ideal place if you are looking for a place for team building.. coz they have paint ball!! *I am so gonna go back there for paint ball again!!*.. If you like extreme sports sort of activities, then you should go to Jerejak!!! It was so fun and I like the environment there!! Most important, the price is damn lao sai reasonable.. It costs us only freaking rm 60 all these including the ferry's ticket!!! the food are so delicious summore!!! I was very happy that day and it was great to put all those assignments aside and have a blast at another island!!! only one word can describe: awesome!!!!

The Sire

Finally we made it to The Sire after Neynie recovered. Everyone was very happy but the roomate, Shirley still can't attend because of the micro teaching assignment. The reservation was made at 7pm. We got ourselves prepared and 6.30pm we went to The Sire. We reached there on time. *see, how punctual we are!!! lolol...*

the menu...

hehehe, fully utilize the time while waiting for the waiter to come and take the order :)

FYI, The Sire is a museum restaurant. It was formerly the mansion of the old Chinese tycoon, Yap Chor Ee. After ordering the food. we went to walk around and take photos.
simple yet beautiful..

the Nyonya's window..

I love the ambiance there..

cam whore around..

going up to the level 2, for more information about Baba Nyonya..

the 2 camera freaks..hehe

If I know there's a fish pond, I would have brought some bread..lolol


We then realized that, no camera allowed at certain sections of the museum. It is really very beautiful and it is a waste that we can't take photo! There are a lot of information about Baba Nyonya which is very valuable.. Then the nom nom came, and it's time to nom!!!

Here go the noms...

the complementary basket of garlic bread as starter

Zaza's Mocha..
*it is too beautiful for me to drink it :)*

Miss Zaza's grilled Salmon..

forgot what I've ordered.. it is something like beef soup with some herbs

Neynie's lamb chop. It is the biggest portion among all of our noms and it is very delicious too..
the ones who love lamb should go for a try at The Sire :)

Ein Sharapova's chicken... errr... forgot the name again..
but it is delicious too!!!

a photo of 4 of us before eating :)

We barely talked to each other while we were eating because the food are delicious and everyone was enjoying the food.
only after the dinner, only we start chit-chatting and cam whore around..

The birthday girl :)

Miss Zaza is the super fan of dessert... so it is impossible if there is no dessert for her meal..

and here goes the dessert :)
seriously, I have forgotten the names..sorry for the bad memory!!
it is not so delicious, I still prefer the chocolate volcano from QE II

We wanted to take another photo of 4 of us, so we asked for the waiter's help...but you know, not much people really know how to use DSLR, including myself!! Suddenly, a beautiful woman offered help and she helped us to take these photos.. It was quite beautiful and 4 of us were talking among ourselves about it. That woman then approach us and talked to us and she thought we are tourist!! *do we look like tourist??* After talking to her, we got to know then she is actually the founder of a modelling agency... no wonder she looks so beautiful and quite stylish!!
A photo with them before we leave..
*nice to meet you, Pauline :)*

A great memory before we leave..

I had a great dinner that day.. Great food, great people and a great night!!
Not to forget, a great restaurant too.. The food in The Sire are not bad, the ambiance is good and their service is very good!!! Seriously, their waiters are very polite... If you are looking for an ideal restaurant for your Christmas dinner, I guess you can consider The Sire.. *free promotion, lolol*

That's all for today..
