Hello, February. Thank you for bringing Mojo along. Blogging Mojo to be precise. A month later than the arrival of Reading Mojo and Drawing Mojo, but better late than never, eh. Oh, this post is for Khalish, who, since the introduction to my blog last year, has been continuously asking me, "have you updated C&C: Eccentric yet?"
After a long hiatus, there are numerous photos that I would love to write about, of course. Firstly, let me share the ones from The C Clan's mini holiday, during which Kamal, Khalish, and I bade farewell to 2017 and welcomed 2018. A relaxing three days and two nights at Thistle Port Dickson.
The holiday began on December 30, 2017. A leisurely drive from Putrajaya, a delicious lunch at Chez Chembong, and a languid evening in Port Dickson. Slothful, yes. The next day, recharged, the three of us did more albeit still at slow pace. After all, the reason for the trip was to "chillax like it's 1999".
Khalish morphed into one of his alter egos, the crab, as he enjoyed both the pool and the sea throughout Sunday. He only roamed the land for meals and games. Ample time for the parents to date. Kamal and I even played ping-pong against each other for the first time. Fun fact: I won all three matches, ahem.
Another fun fact: I love arcade games because they remind me of The Chembong Clan's family holidays at Felda Residence, Port Dickson. There, my siblings and I had a great time with the coin-operated machines. My favourite was PacMan.
I also remember the big black tubes used to ride the waves, the ice cream vendor announcing his presence with a bell, and the magical food container that was never out of sardine sandwiches (thanks to the magician, Mak). Simple yet happy childhood memories. We should revisit the place, Ayah, Mak, Along, Angah, Cimi, Cajib, and Cilan :)
The last evening of 2017 was a simple yet happy memory for Kamal, Khalish, and I, too. After a scrumptious seafood dinner, we lounged about our room. The man read, the boy watched a movie, and I photographed. All quietly.
Until 11:59. Unexpectedly, pyrotechnics coloured the sky and derived "oohs" and "aahs" from the hotel guests. Us included. While appreciating the view with my loved ones, I prayed for a beautiful 2018 (amin).
That February 3, 2014, Di, Rai, Yani, and I were reunited with Sadam as early as 5 a.m.. To the airport he drove us. Yes, time to say លាល្អ to Siem Reap. The first to check in for our flight, the four of us had extra time to enjoy the last day.
Desserts at Blue Pumpkin perked the sleepy us up. Perfect for another round of shopping. This time, the chums purchased Lok Lak spices, complete with recipes. Speaking about food, Air Asia offered free coffee for Yani and I just because the former's booked meal had to be replaced with a different one. The reason both of us, who happened to sit side by side, kept on talking throughout the journey.
At the Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT), Rai returned to her place as Di, Yani, and I made our way to Alamanda for sushi and more conversations. Among the topics was our next destination 💜
