Christmas Eve @ Teluk Intan

Under the orders of the Home Ministry, I took leave for the trip. Yep, we had to clear some stuff up there and bring it down to Kay-El. We planned to start the trip early (0730) so that gives us a lot of time to finish whatever it needed to be done there. Not only that, it would be the first time my MIL (which she later suffered neck pains) and my wife (who suffered from body aches) would follow us in the van. I am not sure why, maybe I am used to driving long distances on vans, cars, etc. by now.

Coming back to the house brough back some memories but for them as this was the house where we started our courtship. But to them, its just an old house, which means, its time to move on. Anyway, the whole day was spent clearing the unwanted rubbish, packing old clothes and 30 year old textbooks for giving to charity, etc. And when everything is cleared, it goes to the van. Unfortunately, this would also mean one of the many trips to come. And unfortunately too, since we ate so much, we did not feel like packing back some chee cheong fun.

The van was packed with a lot of stuff
You should have seen the first load, which
was meant for charity. I was afraid it might
break the van. Still, the steering felt heavy

And there were more stuff inside too since my
Wife insisted on bringing back a glass coffee table

My reward for the trip. Any unwanted junk I can have.
Most of the items were never used when they bought
their own cars.
See the small aeroplane? Its a broken laser pointer which
I will take apart later on.

Another Weird Dream

I had another dream this morning and like the ones before, I could not remember much since I am typing this out in the afternoon (where I have a fre minites of free time), most of the events have been lost in my head. It has something to do with one of the companies I was working for, moving into an office just next to one of my Universities's Mechanical Department. The funny thing is, we're in Malaysia. And today, my cousins are visiting.

Since the girls all came in a group, I decided to meet up with them. But they had other plans, which is to go roaming about. And after a few shops, I lost them. Many things happened and when I crossed the road, we're in Australia.

But one thing I do remember is that my "friends" and I were shown three funny fish creatures, all gave us a weird expereience. I can only remember the second one;It was some sort of a shellfish. Its shell was actually a rough marble cone and in the middle, was its mouth. It has a rows of sharp teeth lined around and anyting gets into it, well, its like putting it into a blender. So, we tried with some meat, and then I used a pink plastic knife (borrowed from Kristine's Birthday cake) to push the meat in. The shelfish shattered the knife and ate it up as well. Because it was very hungry, it wanted more and we panicked. So, one of my friends, pulled its tail from the back and fed in into the mouth. Within seconds, there was a lot of black swirls and then, the fish died. We felt sad for senselessly killing such a horrible thing and walked off.

And when we turned to the shellfish's back, there was a huge fan/motor aplliance connected to the dead "shellfish". Wait a minute............
