after swimming I went to have breakfast with her and we went to the nearest stop at BDC coffee shop near to Everise Supermarket. There were not much choice and so I just ordered a plate of soya sauce kam pua noodles at RM3.00. She ordered a plate of char kueh that cost her RM3.50.
picture of the food stall
kam pua soya sauce noodles.. taste was ok ok only and I am sure I won't return there to eat
char kueh served on a nice place but it was quite tasteless and the char kueh lady gave us sweet chilli sauce to eat with it.. in conclusion why can't she gave us garlic sauce or sambal belacan instead.
after makan we went back home. Which direction is our home??
It was raing very heavily early in the morning and I looked out the window and I was praying for the rain to stop so that I can go to waterpark and have a good splash in the pool. One hour after another hour passed by quickly and in no time the rain slowly stopped. Was thinking of doing the laundry only after I come back from the pool cos I am feeling a bit anxious and excited to learn some new techniques of real breast strokes and crawl style from a he. He is a person who knows how to swim well and I really admired those who can swim so relaxingly something like how a fish swims.
We reached the pool a minute just after the counter has been opened. Had a quick shower and I did some bubbling in the water and he started to teach me some correct ways on how to swim breast strokes. After sometime learning very slowly from him I then realized how silly I was thinking i did the correct way all this while. Now I realized my mistakes and from tomorrow onwards before I start my new day I will try to go to the pool for at least half an hour to correct my swimming style.
Another thing I want to mention here is all this while I thought front crawl style or freestyle is easy but now I also found out that actually learning swimming at this age of mine is a very hard task. I wonder if I can swim well after another year because for the past half a year I have been wasting my time swimming wrong ways of breaststroke style. Now to change back to the correct ways is never an easy thing to do.
I will pray hard so that I can improve from time to time so that the next time I see the "man with a big belly" or nick name "xxxxx", he won't have the chance to say "
"xiao jie, lei yao dou hou chou lou ah..lei ng sik yao sui"
