the lone bahulu
this bahulu is one of the twelve that i've gobbled up during my day trip today (rm3/12pcs at tesco tebrau). i'm was on the verge of dying of boredom in the black hole, and my saviour-slash-friend texted me around 12.30pm and asked me if i'd accompany him to oversee the fan installation for his family's new home. it's located somewhere near tebrau (i forgot the exact venue). so off we went. it's awfully far away - he's in utm and the home's here. near tebrau. i feel sorry for his looooooong commute (he's not staying in utm). so here we are...
home sweet home
it's just a humble abode...but nicely designed. i love the layout. although i myself am not a fan of single-storey houses, i have to say i fell in love with this. i wonder how his family will decorate it later ;)

after the installation and cleaning up is done, i'm feeling peckish (actually, i've been hungry since leaving utm - no lunch yet) so off we went to tesco. i've never been to tesco tebrau before (haven't been to any tesco outlets, actually) so he took me there. it was decent, and nice. many families. had lunch of nasi ayam at the tesco food court, and bought the aforementioned kuih bahulu. nice treat. :) then we strolled around tesco. after tesco we went over to carrefour, near that area too. there we continued strolling, and chanced across this petite girl. you be the judge. for me, it ain't pretty. :P
then we went over to the fresh foods dept (a misnomer that applies to any shopping outlets :P) because he had to buy some oranges for his mom. my idle ocular gifts roamed the area:
huge watermelons at carrefour *wink wink*
after paying for some stuff (bought a cheap graphic tee for 10 bucks) we left. his mom called to check what was taking so long. hahaha...but he said that he'd go out with some friends (yeah right) for tea. so off we went to the sg. chat eateries.

"it's been a while..."
LOL...fooling around...the ice machine at ifmi cafe is still broken. so i loooong for the delectable ais jelly cocktail/ais kacang/ais jagung there...cheap and they serve a heaping serving of it! but alas, the machine is broken, so i have to wait it out. but no more. here i had the ais jelly cocktail, and my friend shared a plate of sotong kangkung with me - another dish that i've longed for.

sotong kangkung (halfway through too. hehehe)
after this, the mom called again to tell him to get home...so he had to send me back. he said they're moving tomorrow...hope everything goes well. although he's sending me back to it, thanks to him for pulling me out of the black hole! :D
