Night of the Stars?

Last weekend, Prudential had its company outing at Malacca, a bloody old historical town! Though it may sound old but I tell you, the town is a BOMB! Food is great there for one. Plus all the histories behind every corner, every building, every monument, every tree...errr.. a little way out. OK back to topic.

Let's see, Our trip is separated in to mode of transports. 1 is the coach and 2nd is your own car. Obviously I chose to drive there since it's nearby and i get the comfort of my own car. The moment we reached there, we gathered at the poolside to have lunch.

After eating we went to the pool side to take some pics and hanging out waiting for the Treasure Hunt to start.

So anyways, we got to the treasure hunt later. and when we started moving out, it started to RAIN! heavy ones! and we had no choice but to go for it as well. We were only given a plastic raincoat. which made us looked really sucky.

Yup. I'm trying to act cute....again

Well I had all my clothes wet, plus my shoes are soaking wet! I have even squishy sounds coming out of me every step I take. And of course it was not a comfortable hunt.

So after the hunt, we went back to our hotel room to rest up a little and get ourselves ready for the Annual Dinner event which themed: Night of the Stars. Sounds nice? wait till you see the pictures below.

I tell you, I've never had taken so many pictures before in my entire life! I somehow felt i'm a whore (camera) that day. LOL! Everyone was like wanting me in pictures. I'm not the kind of person who likes to take pictures. Friends who knew me since young knows that. But that night was a little exception. haha

No more pics. the rest I totally forgotten to take the pics. lol, will complete the set once I get it off from some other colleagues.

So basically that was the night of the stars. Everyone dressed up so nicely that night. Simply couldn't guess who is dressing as which celebrity; but guess what they labeled me? a Vampire! hahaha. It's an European Classic style of dressing!

So we retired for the night soon after. Woke up early next morning for breakfast, I totally skipped breakfast as I couldn't wake up! was too dead tired then. So later we checked out from the hotel then started walking around for food! and of course sight seeing.

Dunno what temple, but it is a temple. ;)

So we went to had The famous Chicken rice (ball rice)



This is some delicious stuff I tell you. If you're ever in Malacca and never have this, it simply means that you've not been to Malacca. Then we had Laksa and Cendol:

Food was good and the place is really cool! Though it rained and humid sun and rain and humid sun a few times a day, overall the trip was a blast. Though tired, but still I enjoyed it. Not much on the cam whoring part ok? lol...
