Dear Friends & Families,
Previous post I had shown you some of the Berries that I had tasted during the 3 months trip to Guernsey. At Guernsey I got a very healthy life compare back home here. Back home is always hectic and pressure. Gosh! How I wish to be back there. At Guernsey the work life balance is really balance compare back here at home. Things is much cheaper and air is much more fresher. Haha.. Now dreaming when I’ll be back at Guernsey to enjoy the life over there. Maybe I might just retired at there. Let’s get back to the real life should we?
Many of friends and families members always sending me messages during my stay at Guernsey mentioning that most of my photos are food only. Haha!! Well I like to eat that is why all or most of the photos are regarding about foods. Haha!! During my stay at Guernsey what I took more during my dinner was Spagethi.. I had tried a lot type of sauce. Now back home when I see spagethi it will remind me the ordeal during the stay. I did got a chance to try the noodle box. I always see it inside the movies so I must try it out. Went to the shop an ordered a box with RED Thai Chicken Noodles. Well it do help to cure some of the sickness for longing for food that taste same back home.
Then at one Friday before we went back home we went to a Chinese Takeaway and I had a set meat share with one of my colleague. The food was not bad and it took us two days to finish off the food. Thank god.. problem was the fried rice that was tasteless and the portion wasn’t enough for two. Haha!!
Saturday we went to the Flea Market at Saumarez Manor. During the journey to the place we managed to take a glimpse on the sheeps that I mentioned earlier before this post. The place even have many different type of shops and the best part during one of the weekdays there is a Ghost trip around the mansion. Wuuuuuuuu…….. The market do sell foods to flowers and glasses.. after a stroll at the market we took a bus to the town and get our lunch. One of our hang out spot. Santana!..
Dear Friends & Families,
Previous post I did mentioned that this post will be Berrilicious.. Hahaha… I feel myself was very healthy during my stay at Guernsey because everyday I will drink fruits juice, eat fruits, walk to a bus stop and not to mention is the fresh air. Hm… I love the place when I a thought it back all the things I did over there.
During my stay at Guernsey I did had the opportunity to try a lot of food that I have been drooling for it. Especially all the fruits that you seldom get it fresh from here back home. At Guernsey I did try a lot of berries. Yummy!!! Let me see.. my first berry was.. Raspberry! Gosh that was nice.. then I did tried the Blackberries..then…Blueberries.. Red Grapes.. Green Grapes.. Black Grapes..Peaches.Nectar..
That was the fruits that I tasted during my stays at Guernsey. I might left some outs well it has been more than 6 months from today. Well get back to the story. Sunday we went out to the town only get to know that the shops around the town was closed. They don’t do business on Sundays. We were left nothing to do but wandering around. The town was like a dead town in the game of Resident Evil. The ladies was with us and insisted us to bring them to try out the fish and chips so we have another round after yesterday. Haha.. without so many people on the street we able to snap photo us, things and buildings. While we were wandering the streets we met a nice man that told us he is a dog trainer and introduce the dogs that he trained.
Then we walked to pier and saw a lot of seagulls as wells boats from different sizes. I was on the bridge and I fell a little nausea because the bridge was built on top of the sea. After nothing much to do at the town we took bus back to our apartment and prepare for dinner. Me and one of my colleague share our dinner for the 3 months and we bought 2 large cold pizza back to oven it and we only oven one of it. We made a mistake to over it extra 5minutes and when take it out to eat, it turn to be like eating a stone bread.. haha.. One thing that we liks so much our apartment is our balcony is facing the sea and when sun sets we can always have a look of it. We will lying outside the chair with our sweater because the wind was chilling and watch sunsets.. IT WAS BEAUTIFUL!!!
During our training at Guernsey our Business Partner invited us to a Go-Kart race. We were so excited because we Malaysian always has this adrenaline for speed. Thought we can win but end up we all was the last.. I was speechless.. All our business partner were very adhere to the rules on the roads but when came down to the track they were like demon on the wheels.. Salute them.. There was one incident that a few of us crash together at the bottleneck.. The whole race was fun and we all wanted to have a second race back home.. Yahoo!!!
The Malaysian Team!
Dear Friends & Families,
After looking back at my blog statistics, I saw there is still a few numbers of people coming back to read my blog and I’m very grateful that you came back for some updates. I hope that I keep my blog updated as much as possible. Previous post I mentioned that I lost my appetite during the first week at Guernsey and I’m losing weight fast. Thanks for the chocolate bar that I took and it brought back my appetite for food. Hahaha!!!
It was our first weekend at Guernsey and it was Saturday Morning and
I prepare all the infos that I need provided by our lovely Business partner and some that I Googled before I came over to Guernsey. We the GUYS woke up quite early and took a bus from right infront our apartment to the town.
The journey do takes a while because travel around the coastline of the island. It was a beautiful scenery and the cold breeze was nice even the sun was shinning so brightly. It was my first time that I saw a flock of SHEEP! I wanted to jump of the bus and go grab and hug one of them. The FUR was so thick. Reaching UK/Guernsey first thing that I told the guys is to snap a photo with the phone booth although is sound crazy. Hahaha.. Went we were there I think it was end of season for spring. The flowers was colourful and beautiful decorated all over the town. The town was having a month or more where every Saturday there is some performance in the town area. We did spend some time enjoy the music. A little tip is good for the entertainment. * Remember*
After a while hanging at the performance area which I forgotten the name then we head up to look for some food for lunch. I told the guys first thing we need to try is FISH & CHIPS! It was over the Internet telling us where to find nice FISH & CHIPS. We headed in to a store serve by a middle age man. I might be ULU/Kampung Boy that I didn’t knew that we can select different types of fish for our FISH & CHIPS. My eyes was locked in to one of the fish when I was going through the menu. COD FISH! Eating a piece of COD FISH here is Malaysia is very expensive and I have great time eating one of it during my boss wedding dinner. Everyone of us ordered JUMBO COD and we thought it might end up very small because Malaysia always very small portion. When the man brought our food out, we were stunned! The FISH was so BIG! and the CHIPS was thick and a lot! We were so happy especially me having so big piece of COD fish all for my own. Hahaha!! Well remember to bring your own sauce because you will need to pay at least 10p for a packet of tomato/chilli/mayonise. We can just add the salt and vinegar which I think the vinegar we can just drink it down like water compare to those in our country same as the salt. Our salt a bit will make face turn.
After finished our lunch, we went around the town to walk aournd. Some window shopping and eye more moist.. hahaha!!! Saw a store selling numbers of perfumes, bookstore and etc. There one store the cupcake was nice and a kid was nagging for his parent for one. I snapped the scene and I would like to share with you all. Then we headed to Mark & Spencer for some window shopping end up I bought myself a blazer. Walk walk and walk.. then I saw one of my all time favourite. ICE-CREAM!!! the stall is selling gelato type ice-cream and there are a lots of favourite and other small tidbits. Got myself a scoop in a cone Pepper Mint! It was reaching in the late evening and it was around 6pm and we went to Checkers Express to buy some food for our dinner.

Dear Friends & Families,
A brand new year and a brand new theme for my blog. Hope there is a few people is still reading what I’m writing. If not I think I might close down the blog. Hahaha.. it seems I spend most of my time with Cityville and MafiaWars. Well I would like to continue where I left of.
My colleagues and I checked in our nice apartment hotel and each
of us has our own room except for me which I need to share with one of my colleague.
The next day we were excited because is our first day in work “so called” in a foreign soil. We met a nice man who drove all of us in his mini MPV around the town showing around such as where to catch our bus and even brought us to get our monthly pass for the bus.
Thank you! He even showed us where we can hunt for our food during lunch and he brought us to a nearby sandwich store and I bought myself a bottle of apple juice and a box of spaghetti to bring back to the office pantry and eat it.
Then it was nice that our office come with some complementary drinks and which is one of my favourite during working hours. COFFEE!!!! It was my first time that I saw such a huge can of Nescafe GOLD! which we can’t buy it at Malaysia.
After a long day at the office undergoing training and is time to head back home and the nice man drove all us back home. In the evening, we guys wanted to explore the places nearby where we live so we walked out our apartment. It was so windy that most of can feel coldness of the air. One of my colleague was wearing sandals and he said that his feet was numb. I have recorded a video when we were outside. I can here the wind blowing fiercely. We did have a wonderful time at the outside enjoy the fresh wind blowing onto our face and we managed to snap some photos for remembrance.
One of my colleague try to touch the water and he said the water is like cold water that just brought out from the fridge. Gosh! After that the skins on face started to peel off due to the dryness and the cold weather. The next day, the nice man brought us to a hypermarket type called Checkers. I was like a kid in a candy store. I saw a lot of my favourite foods. ESPECIALLY CHEESE AND LOTS OF CHEESE!!
When I was there for the first week, I barely eat anything and I was losing weight fast. The bread and pork that I tasted was awkward and I don’t know how to describe to you all but is really different compare back home. Below is the picture of the bread and pork ham..
It was some rice and CHOCOLATE that brought back my appetite and from that onwards I was back to normal and started to tasting all the foods that I have wonder for all this time.
Catch up with you all later.. continue reading my next post…
