I'm broke! (again)

I had an expensive day out this first day of Hari Raya Aidilfitri.
First of all, met up with an old college friend of mine, KK, for lunch. We went to Bella Italia at Belissa Row, where I had the ravioli something-or-other and she had some pasta thingie. (As you can tell, I'm not a food blogger. If I were, there'd be multiple descriptions of the food and the taste and texture and the atmosphere, topped off with pictures and pictures and more pictures...) Then we indulged in some Haagen-dazs ice cream (still reminds me of that ridiculous trainee teacher I had back in Form 4 who didn't know what Haagen-dazs was).
Then we headed off for Logos Hope, and I optimistically declared "I am not going to buy anything!"
As I said, optimistically.

Welcome on board...
Logos Hope! (The logo is ridiculously tiny)
The admission ticket

After about forty-five minutes of waiting in line (during which time Wen Ping joined us and I took bored snaps above), we finally got on board. Into almost heaven. (I guess it doesn't take much to satisfy me. Heh.)
When we left, we realised that the waiting line to get in had become extremely short. Meh - we have to do something about this timing thing. At least we managed to catch up while waiting.

I do think that the bookshop on the old MV Doulos was much bigger than this, but then again, I was much younger and smaller then, so that could have been... erm... sheer perspective. Surprisingly, my stash this round turned out to be quite an even split between music CDs and books (because they had Derek Webb! and also they had CDs at RM5 each, with a buy 2, free 1 deal) and more surprisingly, I had only 1 fiction out of the 6 books (instead of the usual 100%), the remaining being primarily books on worship and/or Christian related stuff. And that would be because their range of fiction was disappointingly small. And rather unknown. I suppose most of them were Christian fiction, which seems to be mainly sanitised love stories or end times/apocalypse scare stories. Haih. Boring!
But all said, happy with my stash! (Pocket is complaining)


  1. Hi,
    I'm one of the other campaigners in the Christian articles/devotionals group. I'm followin you now. See you around. ; )

  2. Hello Zan Marie!
    Thanks for dropping by.
    Will see you around too.

  3. Hi,
    I am a campaigner in the Christian Articles group. I am also following you now and look forward to getting to know you better.

  4. Don't recognize any of those titles! And I'm glad to meet someone else who describes a meal as a "pasta thingy" - I always feel weird when someone describes their meal right down to the garnish and the sauce while I'm lucky if I can identify it as beef, poultry or pasta.

    BTW, welcome aboard the Rule Of Three Blogfest, and happy writing!

  5. Ha! I loved the description of the food. This is exactly how I would've said it.

  6. Hi, wanted to stop by from the Campaign to say hello and that we're in the same YA group. :)

  7. @Joanna & Kimberly: hello! Glad to meet you! Thanks for dropping!

    @Lisa & Elana: yay! I'm glad I'm not the only one who has problems describing food.
