Random Notes 9

1. Hi everyone! As you are reading this, I am probably enjoying myself in Bali soaking in the sunshine, or admiring the beautiful sunset or simply having a scrumptious meal! Are you missing me yet? Haha!

2. If you missed my previous post 'Random Notes 8', do go back there and read about the current contest I am having right now on my blog. Leave the most number of comments and win souvenirs from Bali! Terms and conditions are in my previous post so read them if you are interested.

3. Talking about contests, today I am going to announce the 3 lucky winners of my Versus Tag contest. Before I left for Bali, I had written all participants' names into a piece of paper each, mixed them up in a container and asked my brother to pick 3 names at random.

So these are the three names he picked!

Photobucket

Are you one of them? If yes, congratulations! Please email me your address so that I can mail you the prizes! But of course, you have to wait till I return from my holidays in Bali first before I can send them to you, so be patient yes? : )

Oh, if you want to know what the prizes are, sorry can't tell you now, haha! Will let you know once I return! ; )

4. I love to look at the sky and I enjoy watching the clouds. Call me weird, but I am just fascinated by them. I even enjoy watching those thick, black clouds right before a thunderstorm! Here are some photos I captured last week.



These were the clouds above me right before a huge thunderstorm!



I was at a friend's house and I could see the looming dark clouds above his house.



I was captivated by the beautiful sky! And of course, I couldn't wait for the rain to fall! Haha!



5. I seldom eat at DOME cafe, but when I do, I always choose to eat their caesar pesto salad. I just love it!



Have you eaten at DOME before? Do you like the food there?



The prices are pretty expensive, but I like the portions - they are HUGE!!

6. Do you believe in ghosts? Last year I went to walk the suspension bridge at FRIM and captured this photo on my camera phone.



Do you see that lady with long hair wearing dark glasses and dressed in a robe on the right? Can you see it? Or is it just my imagination? Perhaps it was the light playing tricks on my eyes!

You know what, I think after I return from Bali, I am going to make another trip to FRIM. Let's see if I can capture that same image again. It's sure going to be exciting! Enjoy your weekend, everyone! : )

    March 27, 2010 at 11:46 AM
  11. [SK] said...

    hey, wonder if you have tried the bebek, babi guling and the apokat juice in Bali.. OMG, i love that apokat juice, so nice - but of course quite fattening also lah~~ hehe :p

    March 27, 2010 at 11:47 AM
  12. [SK] said...

    March 27, 2010 at 11:47 AM
  13. CheaHS@n said...

    Serious big storm coming and what a picture sure you did not add in salt & pepper in your photo? Oh dear..

    March 27, 2010 at 11:48 AM
  14. Caroline Ng May Ling said...

    Do you see that lady with long hair wearing dark glasses and dressed in a robe on the right? Can you see it? Or is it just my imagination? Perhaps it was the light playing tricks on my eyes! <--- kay i think ur imagination is toooooo good! cz i dnt c any "thing" that u described! n its sound scary ok, lucky i read this at daytime!

    March 27, 2010 at 11:49 AM
  15. Tekkaus said...

    Yalar! Yalar! We all know now you are in Bali lar. Nope we don't miss you. hahaha :D

    March 27, 2010 at 11:52 AM
  16. Tekkaus said...

    I don't think this time I can win in your contest already. :p

    March 27, 2010 at 11:53 AM
  17. Tekkaus said...

    Congratulations to the 3 of them. :D

    March 27, 2010 at 11:54 AM
  18. Tekkaus said...

    The skies look so damn dark. :D It rained?

    March 27, 2010 at 11:54 AM
  19. Tekkaus said...

    I have never ever eaten at Dome before. The most was I stood in front of it last year while waiting for my taxi. :D

    March 27, 2010 at 11:55 AM
  20. Tekkaus said...

    You captured the photo? But it looked so unreal to me. :p

    March 27, 2010 at 11:56 AM
  21. [SK] said...

    hehehe, two random notes back to back while you are away huh?? hmmm, i guess this is a good idea.. maybe when i go on a trip, i'll scheduled random notes post too..

    March 27, 2010 at 12:03 PM
  22. [SK] said...

    see?? i am leaving tons of comments here.. and please don't call it spamming ok?? i really spent my effort to comment as much as i could for this contest ok??

    March 27, 2010 at 12:04 PM
  23. [SK] said...

    so i wonder if i stand a chance to win anything this time round?? i've missed out the previous few rounds, so as i said in the previous post, i allow no failure this time!! hahahaha

    March 27, 2010 at 12:04 PM
  24. [SK] said...

    oooopsss, will this attracts the attention of my competitors?? hmmm, i should be more low profile and do this quietly so that opponents won't know my plan right??

    March 27, 2010 at 12:04 PM
  25. [SK] said...

    btw, you should have put a link back to your previous post, that would encourage more people to read it - provided that they are as greedy as me, just intending to get something from you, hehehehe!!

    March 27, 2010 at 12:04 PM
  26. Cindy said...

    Enjoy your trip!

    March 27, 2010 at 1:21 PM
  27. Che-Cheh said...

    Enjoy your Bali trip.

    March 27, 2010 at 5:48 PM
  28. [SK] said...

    ok ok, and now everyone knows you always have contest organised.. but i think i'm more interested in comments spamming that all those "tagging and tagged" games.. :D

    March 27, 2010 at 10:38 PM
  29. [SK] said...

    so, i think you should have recorded a video showing how you draw the three winners.. so that we know you are absolutely fair in this.. hehehe, not a bad idea huh??

    March 27, 2010 at 10:38 PM
  30. [SK] said...

    btw, why don't you have another prize for the one whom you think have written the best response to the 42 things?? am sure this will be more meaningful right??

    March 27, 2010 at 10:38 PM
  31. [SK] said...

    hmmm, they are also getting prizes from you bought from Bali?? so, are you going to get the same prizes for both contests?? please, please get nicer ones for the comments contest..

    March 27, 2010 at 10:38 PM
  32. [SK] said...

    hmmm, let me guess what you may buy?? a dozen of the famous bintang bali beer?? or maybe some bintang bali tees?? or more generously some bali souvenirs from hard rock?? kekekekeke~~ :D

    March 27, 2010 at 10:39 PM
  33. kenwooi said...

    March 28, 2010 at 2:26 PM
  36. lina said...

    I ate a few times at Domes, but those few times because I have some vouchers. Expensive lar to eat there, esp for someone who isn't all that interested in western food. :D

    March 28, 2010 at 2:27 PM
  37. lina said...

    eh, this time around, I cannot see the lady lah. @_@

    March 28, 2010 at 2:28 PM
  38. Mei Teng said...

    There's a nice spaghetti aglio olio with turkey hame at Dome...which I like very much.

    March 28, 2010 at 2:54 PM
  39. Caroline Ng May Ling said...

    hi foong just visiting you here again.. have a great day my friend

    March 28, 2010 at 7:53 PM
  42. bluedreamer27 said...

    March 28, 2010 at 7:58 PM

    http://bluedreamer27.blogspot.com/2010/03/interesting-blog-of-month-march-2010.html

    March 28, 2010 at 8:17 PM
  44. [SK] said...

    yeah, i think we share some common interest here.. i like watching the different shapes of clouds too, provided i am in the mood of course.. :p

    March 28, 2010 at 9:49 PM
  45. [SK] said...

    i think the different forms of clouds gives me lots of imaginations.. i like to find out what they look like, it could be a human, it could be animals, it could be any object.. fun isn't it??

    March 28, 2010 at 9:49 PM
  46. [SK] said...

    and you know what i find most comfortable?? to lie on an empty land, on the green grass, and looking upwards to the blue sky with coulds.. it's something very relaxing and enjoyable to me..

    March 28, 2010 at 9:49 PM
  47. [SK] said...

    but of course, contrary to your liking, i don't like rain at all.. i'm more to the sunshine kind of people.. sunshine means vibrant and hope, rain means blue to me.. that's why i choose the former.. :)

    March 28, 2010 at 9:49 PM
  48. [SK] said...

    but come to realise about it, i couldn't find many photos that i've taken of the blue sky and clouds.. hmmm, i guess starting from next trip, i should have taken the sky from all over the place as a collection?? maybe.. :)

    March 28, 2010 at 9:49 PM
  49. conan_cat said...

    dude, enjoy Bali! :D and bring back some of the sunshine!

    and take some pics of yourself for once goddamit! :P

    March 28, 2010 at 10:00 PM
  50. iamthewitch said...

    Wei is the last photo real? The lady picture seemed to be pasted on the tree trunk only.. :P Btw, have fun in Bali!!! :)

    March 28, 2010 at 11:26 PM
  51. [SK] said...

    DOME?? hmmm, i really seldom go to dome actually.. let me recall, maybe not more than 5 times that i've ever been to dome..

    March 29, 2010 at 10:39 AM
  52. [SK] said...

    i think there's not much choices on their menu.. but what i normally (or maybe always) order is the cajun chicken sandwich with mixed grain bread..

    March 29, 2010 at 10:40 AM
  53. [SK] said...

    never tried the caesar pesto salad though.. but i just love that sandwich, and especially the potato wedges on the sides.. very flavourful and satisfying!!

    March 29, 2010 at 10:40 AM
  54. [SK] said...

    errr, portion wise i think still acceptable to me.. hmmm, you think they are HUGE?? OMG, maybe i am a big eater then?? so malu-ating, hahahaha!! :D

    March 29, 2010 at 10:40 AM
  55. [SK] said...

    price wise, yes i think it's quite expensive.. but come to a second thought, i think it's around such price in cafe and restaurants in KL nowadays.. things are getting more and more expensive, don't you think so??

    March 29, 2010 at 10:40 AM
  56. HEALTH NUT WANNABEE MOM said...

    How come no souvenir for me?

    March 29, 2010 at 12:38 PM
  58. jam said...

    When are you coming back? Email me, I have some developing news on our Cambodia trip this coming August.

    March 29, 2010 at 12:39 PM
  59. jam said...

    So bad I did not join your Versus Tag contest. I hope I can win this contest with a souvenir from Bali.

    March 29, 2010 at 12:59 PM
  60. jam said...

    I too love to watch sky and do sky snapshot. Just hop over to my photo blog - http://lifeislikethat.net, I have tons of sky snapshots over there!

    March 29, 2010 at 1:01 PM
  61. jam said...

    Sky is beautiful at any given time, may it be sunny, cloudy or rainy day. Or be it dawn, sunrise, dusk or sunset! I like them all!

    March 29, 2010 at 1:02 PM
  62. jam said...

    Guess what, we have DOME in my humble little town! I went there twice and I have to agree the foods are quite pricey.

    March 29, 2010 at 1:03 PM
  63. jam said...

    I do believe in ghosts, but I do not believe we can see them as we wish. I myself haven't seen one and I don't want to see one too!

    March 29, 2010 at 1:05 PM
  64. jam said...

    What you see can be a spirit occupying that area for ages. It is us humans who intrude their compound. They don't come out on purpose to scare us.

    March 29, 2010 at 1:06 PM
  65. jam said...

    If only you have made a big sin, you do not have to scare of ghosts. Benevolent people like us should not worry, hehe...

    March 29, 2010 at 1:07 PM
  66. jam said...

    Are you coming back tonight? Quite a long stay since last Thursday! When will you announce the winner of your Bali Giveaway Contest?

    March 29, 2010 at 1:08 PM

    hi foong just dropping by here
    just want to inform you that i am done posting the interview
    INTERESTING BLOG OF THE MONTH-MARCH 2010

    March 29, 2010 at 1:28 PM
  68. [SK] said...

    hmmm, if you have not point out that "silhoutte" in the photo, i think i will never realised it.. looks very real foong..

    March 29, 2010 at 1:30 PM
  69. [SK] said...

    but i guess most probably it's because of the light and angle.. it shouldn't be so spooky in such a bright day right??

    March 29, 2010 at 1:31 PM
  70. [SK] said...

    so, when did you noticed that there's this silhoutte in your photo?? did you sense something extraordinary after you've taken the photo??

    March 29, 2010 at 1:31 PM
  71. [SK] said...

    ok, when you go to FRIM again, please try to see if you can capture the same thing.. if you can, then i think most probably it's the lighting and angle issue.. if you can't, then will be an interesting story @_@"

    March 29, 2010 at 1:31 PM
  72. [SK] said...

    haha, mentioning about this.. perhaps you want to examine in every details on every single photo you've taken in Bali when you're back home?? hahaha.. just kidding :)

    March 29, 2010 at 1:31 PM
  73. Ai Shiang said...

    Foong, you holiday quite often, don't you?

    March 30, 2010 at 8:42 AM
  81. doc said...

    when a friend 1st invited me for a meal at Dome, the pie with mushroom soup was recommended to me. i was so hooked on it that everytime i'm there, which is not often, i invariably order the same dish.

    how's that for loyalty?

  91. Faisal Admar said...

    i love salad a lot! :)
    never try it at dome yet.

    very soon... hehe

    March 31, 2010 at 9:58 AM
  92. HappySurfer said...

    Psst... hope you had fun. A colleague who's been there said the designer clothes are cheaper than here. He regretted for not buying more.

    March 31, 2010 at 11:10 AM
  93. HappySurfer said...

    Wow! The first cloud picture is awesome. It's like cotton candy and all yummy.. The sky's the limit, really - or rather the sky's unlimited. haha..

    March 31, 2010 at 11:13 AM
  94. HappySurfer said...

    DOME food is nice, a lot more authentic than the food churned out by the current chain of cafes. The service is a lot more personal too. But of course, the price makes the difference.

    March 31, 2010 at 11:18 AM
  95. HappySurfer said...

    Btw, nice picture of the bar. I like their decor. I too took some shots on my last visit.

    March 31, 2010 at 11:21 AM
  96. HappySurfer said...

    So, the shrouded lady with the sunglasses is still at the FRIM? Yes, please pay the place another visit and check her out. Soon. Would love to know the truth, wouldn't you, Foong? Quick, quick..

    March 31, 2010 at 11:24 AM
  97. HappySurfer said...

    Finally, but certainly not the least, CONGRATULATIONS to the three winners!

    March 31, 2010 at 11:58 AM

    Foong, you've got to come fend for yourself here.. What Bananaz said makes sense.

    [Happysurfer] the guy in your pix at Amber's wedding, third from the right in all white dressing, aiming his Lumix LX3 looks like "The Panda" aka 'Uknowho'. Can recognise his hairstyle and the look from the back of his head. If he had shorts on even more easier can tell from his sexy legs.. ¿ ¿ ¿ tQ
