Day ride to the 2nd Bridge...

"A negative mind will never give you a positive life..."

Date: 16 November 2015
Route: KL - PP - KL
Distance: 700 km

Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah Bridge, also known as Second Penang Bridge, is a 24 km bridge linking Penang island to Penang mainland making it the longest bridge in Malaysia and in Southeast Asia. Since its opening in 2014, this was the first time we rode across and exited via the First Penang Bridge. 

As usual, on the way back to KL we stopped at Juru bawal goreng stall and had a sumptuous lunch, sweating buckets in the hot humid weather.

We rode leisurely and arrived safely home before dark.

Sepang Driving Experience...

"The thrill isn't in the winning, it's in the doing..."

(My favorite car for the test drive)

When we bought our new car, we were given two passes to attend Mercedes-Benz Driving Experience held at Sepang International Circuit.

It was a full day session. My first experience and second for hubby. With professional instructors assistance, we could drive all ranges of Mercedes-Benz and test our skills.

Finally, we had a wonderful, unforgettable experience doing four laps around the SIC at top speed.

A Wedding Reception...

"Associate yourself with people of good quality, for it is better to be alone than in bad company..."

(More than 40 years of friendship)
Nik Fauziah's wedding reception for her daughter was held at Nelayan Restoran Terapung. I met with some of my classmates and some seniors there. It was a merry occasion with lots of delicious food.

Congratulations to the bride and bridegroom, may you be blessed with everlasting love till Jannah...

Vet Charity Drives...

"The best helping hands are our own. When we feel we can't handle things, we just put our hands together and pray..."

(The rising water of Sungai Tembeling)

Since a few years back, the Veterinarians gang (DAHP 74/79) had set up a charity fund.

The gang have been going to remote places to send provisions to the needy and poor. This time we chose to send the provisions earlier before the flooding season and chose a small kampung around Kuala Tahan.

Together with four other cars, we drove our 4x4 to help carry provisions for seven households. After distributing the provisions, we had time to cross to Taman Negara and did the canopy walk and trekked to Lata Berkoh for a cool dip.

Keep up the good work gang! Let's start planning for our next trip.
