What a week it's been. Quite a few things happened in the past week.
Last Friday, I got off the bus to work and saw a lady crying. She approached me and asked if I could help her be a hair model for her hair exam. Apparently the person she asked didn't show up and if she didn't take the exam she would get sacked from her job. Long story short, I ended up helping her and now have bright red highlights and really damaged hair. Thankfully it's only hair and I'm glad I was in a position to help. (But no, not gonna make it a regular thing).
I also had my first professional supervision session on Friday afternoon, which was very insightful. It's good to be able to talk about your cases and get feedback about how to better approaxh similar situations in the future. It was also reassuring to know that something that was bugging me was out of my control, and to learn to let go of things that I cannot help.
On Saturday, the family headed to Malaysia for our weekend in Genting. I booked a minivan that picked us up from our home, and stopped along the way for breakfast and lunch before dropping us off at our hotel. Immigration was a pain and took such a long time, but once we cleared it and was on our way, the fun began.
First stop for breakfast was Yuan Yean Fishball in Yong Peng. Fishballs were yummy but I'd recommend taking the noodles in soup rather than dry. Next stop was a toilet break midway, then lunch at Chuan Kie Restaurant in Gohtong Jaya. This was a typical Chinese style restaurant, dishes that I liked were the steamed egg and 3 flavour chicken. Their ginger chicken was good too.
Checked in to the hotel and rested while my brother's kids checked out the pool. Awana Genting has heated pools but we forgot to bring any swimwear. Took the free shuttle bus to the Skyway place which was right next to the premium outlet malls. Had dinner (forgot the name but the hor fun was yum) and walked around the shops for a bit before heading back to the hotel. Note to self: If we ever stay at Awana Genting again, get the shuttle bus schedule from the receptionist.
Breakfast was at the hotel buffet and then we made our way up to the new Genting Mall. Papa and Mama kept saying our different the place was since the last time they been to Genting (20+ years ago?). Had lunch at a pizza place where babyAC had 2 slices of pizza then split up with the group so we had time to do our own things.
We went back to the hotel to rest and made our way back to meet up for dinner. Had bak kut teh, walked around a bit and went back. The next morning we had breakfast and prepared to checkout.
While waiting for our minivan, Boon Seng's brother drove up from KL to meet up and say hi, and soon Boon Seng came as well. A quick change of plans and we had durian and lunch at Gohtong Jaya before making our way down to Singapore. Dinner was at Yi Jia Seafood, which was really good, and then braved the immigration before heading back home.
