Easter Sunday & my 1st ever LIVE F1 experience! Woohoo~!

Went to church for the Easter Sunday, while everyone was singing very happy songs, we had a fight so didn't enjoy much of my first Easter at the church. Of course after that we were okay lar, you know lar, couple mah, things like that normal lar... :p
Anywayz, I'd earlier bought a new dress just to wear on Easter...Nice ler???
The bf definitely loves it just because it makes me look so much more girlish...

After lunch, we went home and changed into casual wear and headed to Sepang~!
Oh yeah~! Finally! My first ever live F1 experience! Yeee~~~Haaaahhh~~~~!!!Taken in the car when we were trapped in a long long jam...
Unfortunately the first part of the experience wasn't too good because after some time spent in the jam, we couldn't find anywhere to buy the parking sticker. And when we asked those patrons over there, they can't even tell us exactly where to buy those bloody hell expensive parking stickers! Really man, like dear said, what kind of host are we lar? The patrons should really be trained to know every single thing!!! I remember back in 2006 when I visited Melbourne for their Commonwealth Games, nothing like this happen. The whole city was full of friendly volunteer to tell you how to get to where you want to go! And around the stadium, even though there is a long walking distance from the train station, there are patrons lining up to guide you to the stadium! Itu lar what you call the good host! The Sepang F1 organizers should really take not of this.
Until we finally parked the car, it was about 15 minutes before the race started. The bf said it would be nothing if we miss the starting. So from the parking space we walked quickly, later even ran just to reach there on time for the starting!
Phew~! Too bad we were only at the Hillstand, not the Granstand, cannot really see the starting from the flag-off place lar. It would funnier like that. I must say there were quite a crowd there.
And then... After 2 laps, I went off to pee. And as I came back and sat down, one of the cars broke down and retired from the race. It took us a while to realized that it was Michael Schumacher!!! Aiks... That was the reason I wanted to come and see the F1 race!!! And he went out so early! Ish ish ish... The backsides of the cars...
The two Red Bulls that finished 1-2.
The two Ferrari. There are apparently loads of Ferrari fans in Malaysia! Even without Michael Schumacher!
If you want, you can call this Malaysia's pride, Lotus! But I really think that is a lousy name. Lotus, you know the very famous mamak in KL? ==|||

It was a miracle it didn't rain! It was raining heavily at Sepang the day before as they race during the qualifying race. It wasn't too hot as well but because we forgot to bring an umbrella, I was all sun burned after that! :S
Well, it was fun to feel the F1 and to listen to the engine live but other than that, I don't see it any worth to watch it live. I don't even know who's who over there! If you stay at home, you would know everything faster than me because there is always a commentator or at least names appearing on your screen! Luckily my ticket was free, otherwise I think it's not even worth to pay RM50 for parking and RM100 just to sit on grass full of spiders, grasshoppers, flies and ants to watch car passing by in few seconds in front of you. Shirlexia at Sepang F1 race! Wheee~~~!!!
One with the lovely bf...
Seriously those people are smart! I want one of those!!!
This Mat Salleh girl was walking around with a super short skirt(which I noticed it's from Cotton On), I bet she didn't know Malaysia is full of Ham Sap Lou...
Puma fever... I just got a pair of Puma shoe for myself! Cute, right? Polka dots one ler! And the bf has always been a fan of Puma. Does that make us Ferrari fans too??? Hmmm...
I HEART taking picture from the top, look how slim I look in the pic? :p
The 6 of us who made the hard trip to Sepang. From left: PC, Mary, Kevin, David, the bf, me.
Well, it was a very good experience for me. At least I can say hey, I've watch F1 live once in my life!
Next time, if you want me to go, make sure get me ticket at the Grandstand! :p
So as you know, Sebastian Vettel won the race. I didn't even know who is this guy until that Sunday. Haha, I really stop knowing anything about F1 right after Michael Schumacher retired!

Dinner @ Yu Kee Bak Kut Teh, Subang SS14
After a long long journey, we were finally back from Sepang. By that time I was already starving till half dead liao! So the bf brought me for dinner at Yu Kee Bak Kut Teh, a place where he wanted to bring me there for quite a while now.It was very crowded...
I either looked very tired or very sun burned...
For two persons, we definitely ordered quite a lot to share. A pot of Bak Kut Teh with golden mushroom, Yao Tiu, two plates of vege and 3 bowl of oily rice! Their oily rice is definitely VERY NICE!
Our pot of Bak Kut Teh. RM9 per head.
Small vege is RM4 per plate. We later had another plate of taugeh to share. And Yao Tiu for RM2.
I really like the Bak Kut Teh soup as the taste of the herbs is really heavy. It's very thick you see, unlike those very watery ones we normally get outside. And the golden mushroom are very fresh while the oily rice is really tasty that I couldn't help but had one and a half bowl of them! Yummy~!
Including pot of tea for two, it all came up to RM38. Quite reasonable too. Must come back one day when I feel like eating something sinful! :p

I think maybe it's a strategy, to promote both Malaysian F1 and Malaysian food!
