CF Food Court @ Weld Quay

No Comments »

MummyQ would like to try out this food court as she never been here and it seems quite famous among locals and tourists. Me and Boyf don't feel like going there at first because lack of parking space plus is a tourists spot and because of that mostly the food price is slightly overprice and the taste is just so-so. But she is the queen and we need to obey the queen order...

Boyf and mine drinks, MummyQ rarely order drinks as she have her own bottle of water. Boyf ordered Cham Peng (Ice Coffee & Tea) and I ordered Warm Chrysanthemum. Overall the drinks is not bad, Boyf drink was good, the ratio of mixture between coffee and tea is good, it doesn't taste too bitter nor too sweet. While mine drink is made from chrysanthemum syrup which I don't really like, I prefer the original type where they personally boil it and it taste a bit too sweet for me.
MummyQ ordered Mee Suah Koh/Thicken Vermicelli Gravy, well I don't know what this call I just direct translate it from Hokkien. It's a bit different from bee hoon//vermicelli, this type of vermicelli is super soft, very savory scent and smooth and if it were overcooked, the vermicelli itself can turn the soup become thicken and if it was cooked in long hours then the soup will become starchy, just like what Mummy! order. Some may not like it because the texture is a bit starchy, slime and glue like texture but it is good for you if you have indigestion or uncomfortable stomach and it definitely warm up your body, make you feel better if you fall sick. MummyQ like it very much but the vermicelli texture is hard to taste, flavorful and smooth, worth the try though.
Boyf and me ordered Stuffed Pancake and Deep Fried Dumpling as our appetizer before the main course is serve. They have pancake stuffed with parsley and spring onions but Boyf don't really like that type so we chose the one stuffed with meats and spring onions, he is carnivore, never like vegetables. However, the taste didn't reach to our expectation and we are quite disappointed, we just have half of it, it does crispy at the outer layer and soft texture inside of it but not flavorful and savory enough, the ingredients taste is very lacking, it like almost taste nothing even there is spring onions in it and the ingredients portion is too little although the pancake is good but the main ingredients inside the pancake spoiled it all but the dumpling taste not bad, crispy and there is small portion of meats inside it, quite a savory taste for snacks but I prefer there is some sauce for me to dip in then it will make it even better.
Boyf and me decided to have Thai food, we love Thai food. There is many selection menu to choose from at their counter stall and we both like this dish called Pad Gra Prao which is Thai Holy Basil With Minced Pork, this definitely suit both our taste, we once taste it by accidentally and since then we got hooked by it.

Thankfully this dish is nice, very flavorful, savory taste from the sauce, a little bit of spicy and sweet taste, the minced pork is tender and well absorb the sauce, a lil bit crunchiness from the long beans and the meats is juicy, very suitable to eat with rice as rice is dry and gluey, this dish able to blend well with plain white rice.
And we also ordered Tom Yum Soup to go with the dish and rice, we just request to add in meatballs, crab sticks, minced meats and fish meats because I cannot intake too much seafood so we request for change of ingredients. It taste average, there is spicy and sweet taste but it doesn't taste too sour either. The flavor wasn't too thicken or too watery taste like, just average but it do lack of lemongrass fragrant and taste. Overall it is not bad, we did went back to try few more times.

East Lake Garden @ Kampar, Perak

No Comments »

Above pictures were all pictures during my undergraduate year and it was taken back then by using my camera phone which the quality wasn't that good years ago and I edited it to looks a bit more antique which I find it a very good idea because this picture has became antique pictures in my memory.

University Tunku Abdul Rahman [UTAR] Kampar, Perak is very well-known for its natural beauty and a very huge lake scenery, there is lakes inside the university and outside of the university, basically it is like at a foreign university just that the Malaysia weather doesn't allow you to have picnic around the scenery because it is too hot. Staying at there for three years plus makes me fall in love with that place very deeply, I admit that city girl like me at times find it very boring, frustrated living at there because there is no mall or entertainment places to go to even there is no hang out place for young adults but as times pass by I adapted to the environment.

I found the beauty in there, the natural, nature beauty and the cultural beauty. For cultural beauty, the residents at there is very friendly, healthy and they gave me the neighborhood feel that normally city couldn't feel it because we were all occupied with our own selfishness desire and arrogant. They were stranger but they talk like they knew each other, very helping hand for each other, I find it very peaceful living at there. Then there is this garden build beside the lake where students and residents can go for an exercise, walk and a romantic date. As you can see from above pictures, it is all from the garden, pretty isn't it? The sky, the mountain and the lake like were joint together.

After graduated from there, I back to my hometown Penang, a city, a very fast growing city after the chief minister has been change and during the three years plus the change started where is the year I left my hometown. Of course there is envious times where I see through my news feed from friends that they visited here and there and have this foods here and there, of course I'm sadden because I really love Penang foods and Kampar, Perak do not offer that types of food, all we have mostly is set meal food in cafe. But I find it very hard to adapt back to city lifestyle after that and frequently have the urge to go back there, of course I have to back to Penang although my soul wanted to back to Kampar because Penang offer more jobs offer than Kampar, a very rural place. I've never heard of this place before, before I enrolled into this university and many do not know this place, that's how isolated it is. I did went back there once a year for short trip and have a very relaxing holiday, to mentally, psychological, and physically restoration.

Before I stayed at there, I really like city lifestyle and I even find it Penang isn't happening as Kuala Lumpur and I wish to move to Kuala Lumpur as well but after the three years it change me completely that now I prefer to stay in suburban or country side, rather than city as now I find it very tiring physically, mentally and psychologically, from to to toe I find it very tiring, of course I still like the entertainment here but for environment and health wise, yes I prefer less hectic lifestyle, a place where I can inhale fresh air once I open my eyes in the morning rather than exhaust-pipe smoke.

Boyf and me have the thinking of moving to country side once we retired or at the golden age of time, and I really like the idea. Writing this post really making me miss Kampar very much, the feeling of peaceful mind, fresh air, less noise, everything double or triple less in a good way. Although I just back there this year but I wish to be back there again. Ok, I should stop typing this else I really will feel very down and sad thinking of living in city where my soul want to live in country side.

Kuih Piring Durian @ Jelutong

No Comments »

I'm not sure how many still remember this thin crisp biscuits but I definitely do remember it very well because it is my favorite biscuits since young however, I do not get to eat this frequently due it my health condition and MummyQ don't like me to have any foods that contains food coloring. As I grew older, I became disobedient and frequently sneak to buy a packet to eat, it is my easy snack at affordable price, I think 80's children should know about this biscuits, I often find it at morning markets or at very old food court like the one in Jelutong old food court near the wet market.

It is made from very simple ingredients where everyone can get it from either local markets or hypermarkets, the ingredients is available everywhere as you can see from the above picture, inside the plastic bag there is a pink paper where the nutrients of the food, ingredients and manufacturing address for your reference.
So this is how the Kuih Piring Durian looks like, although it stated durian but never once I ever tasted durian taste or even the scent, all I get to taste and smell is the coconut taste and scent. This biscuits doesn't taste too sweet or dry, it is more like rice paper biscuits, very thin and fragile but it easily melts into your mouth, there is no need to constantly chew on it like many other biscuits do, it just melts. Seriously, it doesn't taste really awesome nor smell heavenly but once you get to taste it, it is a bit addictive in your mouth and you could finish it within minutes.

Seeing the colors, who doesn't like it? Especially kids, it is so colorful even my myself still attracted to it. I do hope this biscuits does not go extinct because I find it somewhat is a very heritage-ish and traditional dish that these days not many places sell it anymore because more affordable popular brands were brought into the markets. I hope this biscuits can be preserved in the local markets and I hope the local do not forget about this biscuits, new and younger generations get expose to it.

Ribena Gummy Candy & Horlicks Malties Hard Candy

No Comments »

Say me childish or say me have a child like appetite, I admit it truly. Although I have grow older but I do not want the feeling of being a child is kept just a memory, I want to revive it and I will do this until the last day of my life. Many have forgotten the meaning of being simple is another way of happiness too, I believe many repeated this words thousands or millions of times but hardly make it because social prejudice says that you should act according to your age and another reason is human have greed, pride and arrogant in them, many have chase branded items not only in materials but foods as well. I did what others did and I fell into frustration which is no no good. It is best to yourself.

When I was young MummyQ doesn't allow me to eat those candies or gummy because my body was too weak to digest or clear out food in my digestive systems then because of that I often fell ill and admitted to hospital, she just have to be careful to watch over my diet but now I'm kind healthy so I'm going to stuff in whatever food I have missed from those times.

So I have Horlicks Malties Hard Candies Chocolate flavors, it is a good candies for your fill if you go for hiking or marathon because it can makes you feel a lil bit fill and energize but we Asian often view horlicks is a heaty food or drinks and shouldn't intake it so much. I likes it because the taste it thick in flavors as in you are eating the horlicks beverage powder of malts but it doesn't taste powdery, it doesn't taste too sweet either and it is very addictive candy that can make you feel full after you finish the whole packet.

Another is everyone favorite especially in drink, ribena. It is Ribena Gummy! Another addictive ones because it is chewy and catchy once you bite it, it is not juicy but when you bite it, it is smooth and soft and it felt like there is juice or syrup in it because the gummy taste exactly like from the syrup and the scent is just so sweet. That is another point that is good but there is another point that is not so good is too sweet, like I comment before it take just like from the syrup but just in gummy form. I hope they can make it less sweet?

New Lane Hawker Center @ Lorong Baru

Here is another tourist spot to experience the varieties of local food, not do only tourists spot but it is also famous among the locals, that's including me as well, it is one of my favorite place too although the price is slightly overprice due to its attractions. For the best experience, never go into any cafe, always go for an open air spot because it is chilling and it is a bit less noisy because there is no wall to echo the sound of people talking also you get to experience and see how the environments works.

This is Ice Longan, we both like longan drinks but the portion is too small for us definitely few mouth can empty the whole bowl for me and it is slightly a bit overprice but it does tasted nice. It has savory taste and scent, thick in flavors, cold and chill which is a very good drinks after hectic and tiring day, a rejuvenate drinks. Is my favorite actually but here the price is slightly too expensive for a small of drinks.
Our favorite!!! Char Koay Kak which is Fried Radish Cake, another famous dish in Penang. I have this dish since I was young and it can be my everyday meal because of its taste, texture and feel. This stall in new lane offer a normal koay kak and seafood koay kak, seafood koay kak of course there is squib and prawn, whenever it is you can personalized it yourself when you order it according to your taste, I usually go for more chili paste, beans sprout, preserved turnip and egg, that's is the must for me whether it is added seafood or not that is an optional.

This stall offer quite instinctive addictive koay kak for me, because of the uncle very good in controlling the pan heat which we called it 'wok hei', that's very important because it is the main weapon in bringing the flavors more strong and more aromatic. Its very packed with flavors, there is spicy, sweet and salty taste from both chili paste and preserved turnip, juicy and burst of water from beans sprout, the radish was soft, smooth and non-sticky, very pleasant scent from it makes everything goes in place. Nice!
Next is Satay, everyone likes satay but the satay they serve here is non-halal which is made from pork, nevertheless it doesn't really matter to me as long as it tasted good. I love satay and I alone can finish more than 20 skewers if I have it with empty stomach but we usually only ordered 10 skewers, 5 for each person.
The satay at there actually it taste not bad, the meats is tender, very well marinated with the spices, well-cooked but a little bit too oily, very aromatic smell from the spices, everything was fine and is under control just that it is a little too sweet for me. For the sauce it is fine, there is peanuts chunks, sweetness and a little of spiciness but a lil bit oily, usually the sauce not that oily in it. Overall, it is good and worth the try. 
This is one of my favorite but because of the popularity has rose, the price is a bit over expensive to be honest. This is Chue Cheong Chook for direct translation is pig intestine porridge, many may not like exotic foods, so am I but I made an exception for this because it is not and kind of addictive. The porridge is cook with their special made stock and the porridge texture is soft, smooth, very flvorful and not too watery nor thick after carefully cook for a very long hours though the color look plain. Then it will be top with deep fried and boiled pig intestine, it was clean and washed very carefully because it doesn't smell at all but the texture remained soft and chewy, for deep fried intestine is my favorite - it is very crispy, not oily and very fragrant. They also added in thinly slice char siew but that is not their ultimate weapon, still it tasted not bad - the meat is tender but the intestine and porridge fragrant overpower it. Last but not least the dressing, drizzle with sesame oil and sprinkle with white pepper and spring onions. For those whose is not afraid of exotic foods, should give it a try, definitely worth it.
This is the most disappointing food I ever had at there, once I tried it I will never have it again. I love Laksa and I'm very particular and strict when come to this food. This mobile laksa store is never impressive to me, very few customers and is very quiet, I never once try it until on that particular day I have a sudden craving for it and I wanted to filled the craving so I ordered it. The soup based was tasteless even the shrimp paste also almost tasteless and very watery, the portion is small so does the dressing and ingredients. Definitely not recommended to my readers.
Then there is this mobile stall that selling this Nyonya kuih which I refer to it more like a dessert for me rather than a tea time pastry available at there too. For now I still think it is worth the try although the quality has dropped a lot compared to the last time many years ago, they have Apom Telur and Kuih Ketayap, both tasted not bad but I like Apom Telur more because it suit my taste. It has a strong scent and flavors of coconut milk and it doesn't taste too sweet either, I like the texture because the side of the pastry is thinly crisp but very fragile, it is as thin as tissue that's why it's easily break, while the middle is soft, smooth and fluffy, filled with strong coconut taste.That's what I like about because there is soft and crispy side.
And this is the mobile stall of Apom Telur and Kuih Ketayap.

Kafe Fountain @ Lebuh Carnarvon

This cafe is also one of the famous spot for dinner among the locals, myself too like this cafe because they offer one the food is my favorite dish. The cafe environment has improve a lot, more brighter, cleaner and the servicing also a lot more better since the last time I visited this place like few years back. Also here there is varieties of food you can try as well.

MummyQ ordered ABC Ice Kacang which is her all time favorite as drinks rather than dessert, yes weird her and I ordered Carrot Milk same goes to Boyf as well. The carrot milk is a bit bland but sweet, the taste is a bit too light, still it is very refreshing drinks during the hot and humid day. MummyQ shave ice is a bit loose and not compact within the ice, it is very sweet and the ingredients also lesser than what I expected it should be.
MummyQ ordered Char Siew Rice and she said is very disappointing as the char siew is hard and dry plus MummyQ have loose teeth that is why she find it very difficult to eat. MummyQ comment that the rice is merely a plain white rice and the sauce isn't savory enough, however she did finish her meal with the help from mine meal. Hmmm...maybe char siew isn't their best dish, next time I should give them another try for their roasted chicken.
This is my favorite, Bak Khi/Pork Soup. Many will not go to this place and have this because for some it doesn't taste what they expected it should be, Boyf doesn't like it but I really like it and many went to this cafe also not because of this soup but because of their Loh Mee or well-known as Vinegar Noodles.

It may looks like a very simple soup but it definitely not easy to cook as many do not sell them. Bak khi basically is pork meatballs that was coated with special mix ingredients into starch flour then cook together with long/hours boiled pork bone soup with chopped cabbage in high volume of fire. Because the meats was coated with starch flour and when being cook in the soup, basically the soup texture will slightly thicken up - not too watery nor thick in texture. The chef must be good in controlling the fire so the soup texture is at its best condition, the meats is fully cook but still maintain its tenderness and the cabbage must be soften and well absorb the soup flavor. It may really look simple but this need skills. I can say here offer one of the best bak khi, at the affordable price, definitely is my favorite spot. To be honest, I can just have this as my complete meal, it's quite a healthy meal just that it is too much starch in this meal.
Boyf ordered Fried Rice but we have no idea how it really taste like because he seems very hungry and finished his plate in a very short time and he ordered another plate of it which I assume it should be taste good else there is no reason for him to another another plate, right? Or maybe he is just too hungry and need rice for the fill and since he is super hungry, anything taste absolutely good. I should try it out one day...

McDonald's @ Greenlane

No Comments »

Talk about fast food business, I believe this well-known restaurant is well recognize globally by the elderly as well as very young toddler, it doesn't matter the age, gender, citizenship or so, everyone likes eating it. Yes. It is McDonald's. There is no exception for me as well for falling into this fast food chain.

In Malaysia of course we do not have pork burger like any other countries due to the respect of other religion but still we still have many other selection to try. One of it is Fillet-O-Fish Burger, I personally very fond with this burger because as my memory remembered the first burger I had in McD's is this burger and that was during when I'm still a small young child. Nobody will not dislike this burger even the elders' likes it, MummyQ she likes fillet-o-fish too! The bun that is so soft and smell the of warm aroma really makes one feel warmth inside heart. The melted cheddar cheese and pickled mayonnaise really mixes well and the fish fillet is always that soft, not really oily and smell extremely pleasant. Well who doesn't like it? I extremely love this burger!
Another non-stop craving for their food is the ice-cream itself. The vanilla ice-cream definitely is the best affordable ice-cream anyone can have, the ice-cream itself is the based for their many other flavors of ice-cream and that also prove that their vanilla ice-cream is their strong weapon to compete with other fast food chain industries in dessert category.

Above is my Lime Vanilla Ice-cream, photo taken long long time ago when Shrek 2 movie premiered in theater. No matter what flavors it is, their ice-cream always makes me crave for it, whether it is Sundae cone, McFlurry, Cornetto or whatsoever flavors they came up with as long as it is not something I'm allergy to. The ice-cream is one strong in vanilla flavor, super smooth and soft and the texture is thick and creamy.
McDonald's have their own menu only for morning breakfast and I like their morning breakfast menu too! I like all of it but I particular fond with Big Breakfast and Sausage McMuffin With Egg because that is the silly lovable Boyf often buy for me for breakfast when we were in Pre-U time before he fetch me to school. I did not took any picture of Big Breakfast because now I seldom eat them for breakfast due to the price matters but I can tell you that it comes with scramble egg, golden hash brown, toasted English muffin and chicken sausage. All of it I find I find it that I can have it with cheaper price through Sausage McMuffin just a slightly different.

I chose this is because it is cheaper and for me it is easier to eat, Sausage McMuffin With Egg comes with chicken sausage, cheddar cheese, fried egg and toasted English muffin, there is no hash brown but if you order set meal then it will comes with hash brown and a cup of hot or coffee which is almost the same as Big Breakfast. These days I prefer this besides because of the price matter, it is easier to eat and it taste even better as all in one muffin. The cheese is melted, the sausage chicken patty is well cooked, it is so flavorful and juicy, tender. the fried egg is soft and fluffy as well then eating them all together it just create really pleasant and smooth flavors and taste.
Me and Boyf have became their die-hard fried chicken especially their Spicy Ayam Goreng (Fried Chicken) McD. Not to say I'm being bias or critical but McD offer better spicy fried chicken compared to Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC), I still like KFC because both have their own distinguish unique flavors but I mentioned because KFC also offer spicy fried chicken just that I personally prefer McD because it offer to what my taste goes.

For those who can't really take spicy foods it is best not to try McD spicy fried because it will make you go fire. Me and Boyf love spicy food so we definitely have no problem eating it. The chicken is very well marinated with the spices, the skin is crunchy, spicy and not really oily, the meats is tender, soft and well seasoned. Once I tried it, I got hooked until now, it is definitely worth the try but to only those who can take in spicy foods.
One last food that I like from McD is their Twister Fries which I only can have it once a year when Chinese New Year is around, this fries is specially created to pair with their Prosperity Burger but I often change it to this fries whenever I order other burgers' but of course there is surcharge for it. This fries is shape in spiral shape, coated with their secret ingredients flour, then deep fried it. It taste a lil bit of spicy maybe due to its pepper, it is very crunchy and not oily, very addictive fries for me. I seriously can't wait for next year CNY just so to have this fries.

There is many McD restaurants in Penang but I particularly only prefer to visit the one in Green Lane whici the address can be refer as below...

Fried Snacks @ Free School Road

No Comments »

Snacks is never healthy but still everyone love it, is an addiction. I'm not a big fans of snacks but once in awhile I do crave for it, I'm a fans of local snacks especially fried snacks. One of my favorite place to buy those fried snacks is at free school road and is under a big tree, a simple set-up of push-cart business, although the place may not look hygiene but when it comes to handling the foods, they handle it with care, a proper care and the cart is clean too so, I think there should be no worries of having it plus I had it since young and I did not experience any discomfort or sick after eat their fried snacks. This push-cart actually is quite famous around that area and some even make a trip to buy this back for their family as tea-time break.
Whenever me and Boyf pass by that area and show the business still operating, we will make quick visit and buy like a bag of it with varieties of selection, of course we only buy those that I can eat and not allergy to it.
This is Fried Thee Kuih which is Glutinous Rice Cake being slice, sandwich with two slice of yam, coated with egg and flour then down to the super hot wok for deep fried. This glutinous rice cake usually we only have it during Chinese New Year as this is a Chinese New Year Cake we Hokkien people called it Thee Kuih while mandarin we called it Nian Gao.

It's very savory taste, sweet and chewy from thee kuih, pleasant fragrant from the yam and very crispy texture once you bite it. Of course I remove the yam because I'm allergy to it but the smell it still very savory and it still taste very good despite I took out the yam slice, nothing much is lacking after doing so as well which they preserve the quality quite well.
This is my favorite, I just can't get enough of it. It is a Potato Stick, is like cheese stick but this is made of potato, sweet potato. It has the natural sweetness from the potato, very savory taste, crispy at the outside, smooth and soft at the inside. Is a perfect snack for me.
Next the Curry Puff, well it may not be the best curry puff in town but it's worth the try. The fragrant was mild, quite flavorful, but not spicy enough, the ingredients is very compact with potatoes and curry, the pastry was thin, crispy and the curry puff was wrap very nicely. It definitely a perfect tea-break snacks and today I bought a bag of it as well for my tea-time and a surprise for Boyf after he finishes his work.

They have their famous Deep Fried Banana/Pisang Goreng but recently my timing wasn't that good, it is either finished or they did not sell on that day due to they unable to buy a good quality bananas to fried and sell but I hope I will the chance to eat it again. Due to unable to buy good quality ingredients sometimes the selection of choice is being reduce to 30% which is very sad and disappointing for me.

Arsenal FC Asia Tour 2011 @ Kuala Lumpur Part 2

It is a short trip but we needed a place for a rest and a place nearby the stadium, after some researched we found this hostel that is very convenience for us as the Light Rail Transit (LRT) train is just nearby. By looking at it, actually the exterior doesn't look that bad at all or very grand but the surrounding there is nothing much to see or walk around. 
After the football match, we are super duper zuper hungry and luckily there is a Mamak restaurant down the road just beside the hotel. The surrounding is nice, not too noisy and clean, service too not bad, fast and friendly and the price is affordable too. Boyf ordered same as mine just that he chose beef while I chose Nasi Briyani Ayam and Ice Lime Juice. The rice is fluffy, the color was nice, ingredients and spices was well mix and blended, portion given is quite much. It doesn't taste spicy but it is indeed very flavorful and aromatic. However, the chicken isn't well marinated as the taste is a bit bland, still there some taste from the nasi briyani but it wasn't strong enough although the meats is tender and soft. It also comes with some side dishes like curry and marinated onions, I didn't taste both of it as I'm too hungry and just chow down the rice that is in front of me.

For the juice, it tastes well and good, very refreshing drink after some humid, sweaty and tiring day also good for dry throat after hours of cheering. The ratio is just nice, doesn't taste too sweet nor sour and it is very chilling.

Well, I never dislike lime juice or lemon juice although the acidic fruits isn't something my gastric can handle well.
We just go for Standard Double Room. For us, whenever we go for a trip, we never go for branded or expensive hotel or a hotel have awesome interior design. We just need a decent place to sleep in and rest for the next day. Sorry for the messy room picture but that's how our room looks like after unpacked.

Overall, I'm satisfied with the design and arrangements. The room is clean and well maintained although the color looks a bit dull but it is cozy enough for me.
They all have the basic necessities toiletries for their guest as well and the bathroom is clean and well maintained, the design actually looks better than what I expect it to be. That's me, who changed into my sleepwear after a good and relaxing shower.
Another angle view of the room with the silly nerd Boyd resting before bath and with his face showing "I ain't gonna show my handsome face." look

Overall the hotel is nice to stay, the service crew's was nice and friendly, very professional, efficient. The exterior and interior design is good and nice for me, provide all the basic necessities that I think is essential and I needed the most, the hotel is very well maintained and the price is also reasonable and affordable for short trip for backpackers.

For more information regarding the hotel, kindly click here to check it out.
That's me before having the good shower, wore an Arsenal shirt, training session pass, entrance ticket and Arsenal clown hat just to show off. I have a good time watching the match although I'm not a fans of football.

Arsenal FC Asia Tour 2011 @ Kuala Lumpur Part 1

3 years back? Well I think so. Boyf was so excited back then when he knew his favorite team Arsenal will come to Malaysia for a friendly match with Malaysian team but he was a bit worried whether to go or not because there is replacement lecture class but that's not the main concerned, the main concern he have back then is whether will I allow him to go or not and who can he trust to buy him the entrance tickets.

Of course I allowed him to go, I'm a very considerate and nice GirlF but with one condition. A very simple condition, that is I'll tag along with him. For sure he's very frustrated and got annoyed because I'm not someone who like football match so why want to tag along? Thankfully for his understanding, he allowed me tag along. I wanted to go so badly not because the footballers' is handsome but I would like to experience watching a match live and I promised my GradMama before that I will bring her to watch football match if there is a opportunity comes in future but unfortunately that wish didn't come true. So, with heavy heart I indirectly fulfilled our promise by watching the match with Boyf.

 Above pictures is our entrance tickets and training session admission pass we got it out of luck, meaning we can enter the stadium earlier to watch them conduct their training. Awesome? Yup. After watching their training, other audiences are allow to come in for later live match and that's when I captured the sunset shine into the stadium, making me feel warmth as if GrandMama shine on me telling me she's watching the match with me. It's a very beautiful scenery for me.
The stadium seating arrangements and the interior.
Right above me is the stadium shelter during the day and night view. Pretty isn't it?
Their warm-up body session and training with their coaches. This is the best pictures I have in my phone camera gallery. That time I still did not have a proper camera yet so this is the best pictures I have.
Arsenal mascot, Gunnersaurus Rex. In short gunner. He's cute isn't he?
The goal keeper doing his excessive training with their coach. Seems like a very tough job after seeing the body being throw here and there just to block to ball from entering the goal. It must be hurt to be hit by the coming ball moreover need to block the high speed and hard ball. No wonder the goal keeper usually equip with safety wear.
The football club manager Arsene Wenger? Am I right? I'm not sure whether I spell it correct or not I saw it few times in football magazines and arsenal book that Boyf bought before. I shall check it through Google. Okie is correct. Hahahaha...watching their match but not knowing who they are. Typical girl who's not interested in football or sports. And the handsome footballers waving and clasping as a sign that they have a good training.
Both team after some rest and changing of attire, formally enter the battle field with pride and honor then sing both national anthem? Well for Malaysia, yes it is our national anthem but for Arsenal I'm not too sure as I can't remember clearly plus their team have other country citizens so I don't think they sing their national anthem because it will be a disgrace to others so I'm guessing they sang their own club anthem. After some formal hand shakes and introduction, games start!
My view towards the battle field.
End of the game, both thanks the audiences for supporting and cheering for them.
Arsenal won, well that's already expected from me and the footballers was taking their shirt off to show off their chocolate abs, praising their each others for the good game, clasping and waving to the audiences. 
OH oh oh!!! Though we did eat something before we go for the match but my tummy metabolism is working hard so I'm getting a bit hungry even before the match started so Boyf asked me to buy burger from the mobile seller as he's lazy to walk out and wanted to watch the training session, well I'm ok with it since I never try something like that and Boyf said when come to watch a match like this one must try this feeling although the food is not awesome.

I though there will a cart or someone carry a box or a basket selling food or beverage but the sales person is someone bolder than that, no cart or anything, he just carry the mineral waters and burger in a big bag plastic on his shoulder. I bought the burger but the burger doesn't look appetizing or good, and yes it doesn't taste awesome as well but still it is editable, just enough to filled my hungry tummy.
