'Tis the season to go shopping...

I completed my Christmas shopping a week ago. Went to The Curve to get everything i needed. Kinda broke now. Such an expensive holiday, Christmas is! The problem now is getting the presents back to Muar! I bought some stuff at Metrojaya there and now i got a voucher for 3 free services (facial, make-up, etc..) and a RM10 voucher.

Went to Midvalley few days back. Eventhough it was a weekday, it was very very packed! And they've put up the Christmas deco.

My candy cane!

I'll be working for 3 days next week and then i'm on leave till next year. Woohoo! Christmas is fast approaching and so is New Years. And there goes another year! Have a Merry Chirstmas all!

Euro Deli

Deciding what to have for lunch/dinner can be quite challenging sometimes. Too many things to eat to little time!! Decided to try Euro Deli the other night. Read a review about it sometime back and i've been craving for some good pork chops for sometime already.

Got to Euro Deli quite early, was too hungry to wait.

It's a small and pleasant deli, with mostly pork in the menu. The reason we came was to try out the sausages but in the end we ordered other things.

Fried Flour with Bacon

Mixed Roast of Pork Ribs and Pork Knuckle

Pork Chop

The pork chop was simply delicious, even the layer of fat around it was fried nicely. As you can see, it comes with a dash of garlic spread on top. The ribs and knuckles was nice as well and didn't have too much fat in it. The prices were quite reasonable, the mixed roast was RM25 and the pork chop RM19.

I would definitely go again given the chance!

The Phone and I

I recently got a new phone for myself, bout 3 weeks ago. This is the 3rd phone i've ever had. I started using a handphone after my form 5, just before i went into college. Got the Nokia 8250 sponsored by my brother. :D Was a damn fine phone. It survived my college days (plagued with a lot of accidental drops) .

I passed on my Nokia phone to my dad before i went overseas. In UK, i got myself a Motorola V220. It was nice to have a camera phone, but it didn't last. Even before a year, the phone started having problems. First it started by continuous ringing (i assign ringtones for my sms) even after i've open and read the sms. Once it happened, i had to take out the battery only it stopped ringing! (Even off-ing the phone didn't work). Then the camera ceased functioning. At first it would be alright if i switch off and on my phone. After a while it just won't function at all. The memory of the phone is kinda small as well, about 800kb only. So if you want to copy mp3 in, you've got to cut the song up into a smaller size. Copying things in and out of the phone is also another problem. The phone didn't come with the software.

From the beginning of this year, i've been toying with the thought to buy a new phone. I've had my eyes on the Sony Ericsson k750i for ages already. But only about a month or two ago, i started diligently comparing phones, reading about phone reviews and comparing prices. I settled on the w800i but found out there's a newer phone, the Sony Ericsson w700i which is exactly the same (but comes with a smaller Memory stick). My Motorola phone couldn't fetch a decent price if i wanted to trade in, but so happens that my sis was in need of a phone. Her old phone had a crack on the screen, the inner one. (I suspected it was the work of the little imp named Josh).

So now i've got my w700i and it was money well spent. With the walkman function and 2.0 megapixels camera, i can't ask for more (for a phone). The walkman function is best used with the earphones. Really brings you to another world and wipes out all the other noises. This phone has gotten a lot of good reviews, so i hope it can last for the next few years.

Nope, i won't be peeling the plastic off the screen until i get a proper screen protector.

This and That..

Been looking at some photos taken sometime back. Here are some pics of Rakuzen. The food was to die for.
Realised i didn't take any photos before eating

Damn nice

Last week, i went for a friend's birthday celebration and tried Shisha for the very first time. Was pretty cool. First time maaa..

Watched 'Click''s as nice as people say it is. Serious and funny at times. Went to watch 'Dragon Tiger Gate', was ok..full of action. And no, the third guy's name is not 'Gate'. But i still don't get why they want to cover their eyes with their fringe. Not irritating meh?

I'm currently reading a book by Jodi Picoult, 'My Sister's Keeper'. Got me hooked from the first page. Got to finish it by this weekend. Anymore books to borrow me, Yin?

Going back home tomorrow..Wheeeee...

Yup, at last im spending time to blog about my trip to Bangkok. It's only been....1..2.... 3 weeks!

We boarded the evening plane there, got the free Air Asia tickets quite sometime ago. Reached there around 8pm Thai time.
On the plane ride

Upon reaching, we left our bags at the Hotel and headed out into the Thai night. First stop, dinner!

Yen Ta Fu! It's pink!....But it's pink!!

I didn't eat that, i ate some Pork Ball noodle. Nice, for only 40Baht. All Thai food came in smaller portions, less oily and delicious! No wonder all the people there were slim. You would have thought we would have called it a night. But NooooOOoo...we started what we came to Bangkok for...well, maybe what i went to Bangkok for. Suan Lum! As you can see from the pic there's a big ass Ferris Wheel in the background. Went for a ride in it, costs 100Baht per person for about 5 spins. They had the famous Beer Garden here. The pic i took was too blur.

Suan Lum Night Bazaar

Next day, went for our half day tour. Went on a boat ride along Chao Phraya.
On the way there

Boat ride

Along the river bank we saw lots of...buildings

After that we went to feed some fishies....Whenever we fed them with bread, they would snatch for it, making big splashes and showering us.

Here fishy fishy...

We stop at one of the temples along the riverbank.

Saw a huge toad along the way..

After the half day boat tour, some of us went shopping till evening and then it was dinner at a local Thai restaurant. The next day was a Saturday, so Chatuchak it is!

Along the way, we stopped for coffee, twice. The coffee sold here are cheap, around 40Baht and almost as good as the overpriced coffee sold in M'sia.

I need my coffee wherever i go

Chatuchak is a very very big scale weekend market that sells everything under the sun.

So cute!!
How to resist??? I wanna, i wanna!!

Selling like hotcakes!

Bought loads of clothing from there. So cheap! If only we had things like this here.

Next, we went back to the hotel for some R&R

Next day, it was back to M'sia. Woke up very early to catch our flight.

Hotel lobby at 4am

That's all for my post on Bangkok. The stay was enjoyable, the people were very polite and the food....delicious! (Bacon every morning for breakfast!!) I would definitely go again given the chance.

Lanun-lanun Pulau Caribbean: Harta Lelaki Mati

No kidding, it really was 'Harta Lelaki Mati'. Went to watch it last Friday, manage to get the tickets by purchasing online. It's the most awaited movie of the year.....after Da Vinci Code. Before watching the movie, i read the reviews...some good some bad. Many said the ending was bad, but it made me look forward to the next and last movie. Chow Yun-Fat will be in the third installment as well.

*Spoilers ahead!*

This movie is the continuation of the first one. Started by showing how Will and Elizabeth's wedding was ruined when they were arrested for helping Jack Sparrow escape. To free themselves, Will had to get Jack's compass. So this ensues a wild goose chase, ending up with Will, Elizabeth and Jack running from Davy Jones' and his crew. And of course there's the Kracken ....Cracken ....Huge ass Octopus!

And they threw in a kissing scene between Elizabeth and Jack, and a hint of jealousy from Will (of course he didn't find out the real reason why Elizabeth did that). But the directors didn't dwell into the matter....hmm..

Anyways, can't wait for the next movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, expected to be out on the 25th of May nex year. Loads of pirates including Davy Jones, Cutler Beckett, Barbossa and Sao Feng (this is where Chow Yun-Fat comes in).

Wondering whether there will be a continuation for Superman Returns, seeing how it ended. They can't just leave us hanging after seeing that he has a son who's powers are developing. Brendan Routh sure looks...plastic-ky when he stays a mannequin.

Speaking of superheroes, that's my company's theme for the midyear company dinner. Hmm...wonder who'll dress up!

You Are 23 Years Old

Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.
What Age Do You Act?

I must be getting old....

Happy Birthday!

Quote of the day: Porcupine Children: [driving a van] It's just like Auto Homicide 3!

It’s me blog’s b’day!! Yup, exactly a year ago I started this blog. Actually wanted to start blogging earlier but nvr got around to it till a year ago. Wait....i started using Friendster blog....oh well.

Let’s see…after X-Men 3, I got around to watch ‘Over the Hedge’. It was hilarious. Especially Hammy!! Funny to see him getting high after having coffee. So far the best cartoon this year. Haven’t watch ‘Cars’ yet though. Too many movies/shows to watch too little time. Got loads of animes pilled up waiting for me to watch too.

Helped me friend to move a few weekends back. First we walked around Ikea looking for a nice bed for her. Was looking for a 4-Poster Bed. Goodness! Ended up buying some scented candles with nice holders (for her) and currypuffs (for me). Seriously, the currypuffs there are nice. After that was off to her aunt’s house at an expensive gated community to move some of her stuff (tv, dvd player, ps2) to her new apartment. After moving her stuff it was off to buy some pillows (don’t ask me why we didn’t buy it in Ikea in the first place). And once all these were done, I went back home with my currypuffs. Yup, they were in the car the whole day. But still edible. :D

Last week, I finally got to tried out Dragon-i. Well, it’s really nothing to write home about. Nothing exceptionally delicious, just average to me. Tried their spicy beef noodles, fried eel coated with honey and of course their ‘Xiao Long Bao’. Was sort of a pre-b’day dinner. Got a new purse/wallet. :D

A lil' oily though

For me b’day, went to have drinks. Got a b’day mug! In case you’re wondering, I didn’t finish the whole drink (already feeling bloated from dinner and a beer before that). It was shared. Was feeling bloated after that, but managed to drink another half mug of beer. Face was flushed red/purple but somehow was still able to stay up to watch the opening match of the World Cup. Yup, proud to say that WC opened on my b’day. (but on the downside, people would remember the WC more. Hmph!!).

I'll be uploading pictures of me Goleo (McD's lion) next. Watch this space!
