Jolly Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2015

No Comments »

Ok, let me start with the very belated greeting. Merry Christmas eveyone!!! I hope is never too late to convey my greeting. There is no excuse should be made that I seriously did not take an effort to blog. I've been seriously lazy to blog, laptop got spoilt, limited usage of laptop as Boyf keep using it for gaming and it spoilt again and again. Been demotivated and got distracted to blog as well. I hope you will understand this laazy bum. 
Above Christmas decoration was completed by my awesome new colleagues at our admin main entrance. It does look simple and cute but their effort that's count despite being so busy with the workload. Bravo! So the above picture is my season greeting for you. Hope you like it.

Christmas is the season of giving and forgive as everyone know and as a mother of an adopted daughter I'll never forget to buy a present for my beautiful daughter. Both me and Boyf never buy a lots of toys for her and we prefer she interact with people but since it is a season giving we make it an surprised for her. We bought ready packed gifts that comes with varieties products that include soft toys. Today we played with her with the new toys and she's excited plus she even learned new instruction, clever. That's my baby girl.
Aha! For your information, she's a dog but we never see her as an animal instead we see her as our precious daughter. She's a family.

Boyf bought me few gifts after he got back from outstation worked and it is one my my favorite stick figure drawing author Boey Cheeming. His books really makes my day and reminiscence everyone childhood if your childhood was awesome. This year he released his third book and it was awesome plus it comes together with his signature green color sharpie! I don't even sure whether I willing to use tnis marker pen or not since it is so limited. Boyf even bought me his shirt and his 2015 calendar for my office use! This year Christmas present is one of the most best ever! However, this year just like last year and previous years, I'm being the worse girlfriend ever that didn't buy him anything. I shall improve myself on this, being nice and considerate one. As I have the most awesome pawsome Boyf I ever ask for!

This is the books I've colleccted since he first released it few years back! Hope there is more books release in the future from Boey and I can't wait!

Then just right before Christmas I happened to received a parcel from Ipoh, one of my close friend sent it over for me my Christmas presents! Thank you so much J's, I love it! Will be using it soon.

This year Christmas is one blissful one for me and I hope it gets better for the next year also the rest of the years.

So let me continue with my year 2014 summary...

This year is one craziest roller coaster rides for me and I hope it will never ever happened again. Lesson learned. Be wiser. Smarter. What's passed is passed and I do not want to recall the incident again. Ever! What I can really hope for is, Karma one day will hit the someone real hard that I will not sympathize anyone of them because they deserve it. 2014 definitely not a good year for me nor a memorable year that I will cherish. Like Asian people always said and believe 14 is always the unlucky numbers.

It is as it does not only happened to me but globally. This year we do not have a good kick start as we face so many unfortunate incidents since the beginning of the year. It started with major unfortunate incident which is MH370 then MH17, TransAsia Airway, Air Algeria and the latest is QZ8501, definitely not a good news to end the year and it is not a good aviation year. Then East Coast of Malaysia faces serious flood that causing many losing everything they have including their loved ones. Ebola virus that took many lives away. We lost our The Tiger of Jelutong, Karpal Singh in an serious accident. Pakistani Taliban executed hundreds of innocent children. South Korea ship sank that took hundreds of lives while the ship travelled to Jeju Island. More countless killing and murders news or unfortunate incident took place. Words are unable to console their broken heart of losing their loved ones and 2014 is another year to mark 2004 tsunami incident that shocked the whole world 10 years ago. My heart and prayers goes to them.

Have a 1 minutes of moment of silent and prayer whenever or whoever read this post no matter how old this post is. Be grateful of what you have on your table today, be bless that your loved one's still with you, express your appreciation and love more often. Each day count your blessing and bless those unfortunate. As you are one lucky and fortunate ones.

Ok. What's has been done is done and What's has been passed, passed. No more of it. Enough. Let me recall back my 2014 resolution and let's see if I accomplish any of it or you can click here to view it.

Jingsi Books & Cafe @ Beach Street

This is a place where I used to spend most of the days and times with my study-mates. Because it is near to my school, the environment is quiet, peace and clean, well-maintain and the people at there are very helpful and friendly. That is why we chose this place to do our group study. Seeing this place makes me really miss those moments, how we together work hard to achieve our goal no matter how. During was my teenage period peak time~!
They also have this beverage serve at there with price range RM 3.00 - RM 4.00, it is varieties choices of teas from the tea and part of the payment will go to charity causes which I think it is a good things because it seems like I indirectly donates some for some good deeds since back then I'm just a poor student who can't do much but keep visiting this place and order their beverage somehow I did something I can and their drinks is quite good too.
There is this small covered glass garden for sight viewing in the cafe and for me it looks so peaceful and I really like the nature looks, I usually like to sit near this place, is like my favorite spot in the cafe because it is the most beautiful place. Writing this post really makes me recall many memories from this place and it has been so long since my last visit, I think I should pick a day and pay a visit again.

HomeCooked Egg Mayonnaise

No Comments »

The easiest sandwich to make is Egg Sandwich and everyone love it, it is good to health too! Since it is easy to make one so decided I make it my way, according to my taste.

The ingredients is...
Shallots OR Onions
Salt & Pepper

How-To cook steps...

1. Place the raw eggs into the pot, turn the on the gas stove and let it sit at there until it is cooked.
2. While waiting for the eggs to cooked, peeled and finely chopped the shallots. Place aside.
3. Once the eggs is boiled and cooked, replace the hot water with cold waters and let it sit for few seconds until things got a little bit cool down.
4. Peeled the hard boiled eggs and mashed it into pieces, the size according to your preference. I like it finsly mashed.
5. Then well mix it together with finely chopped shallots and mayonnaise
6. Season it with some salt and pepper for flavoring.
7. Wrap the bowl with plastic wrapper then place in the fridge for few minutes to make it chill.
8. Then it is ready to be serve on your toasted bread!

That's my favorite Egg Mayonnaise, you can adjust or replace it with other ingredients if you don't like shallots, it is up to your preference when it comes to home cooking. It is the most basic cooking that everyone know and it is nice to eat as well, good in nutrients if you are in hurry or lazy to cook for more complicated meals. Everyone should give it a try, especially college or undergraduates students. I hope you all will like it!  

Visitation to Hosital Bahagia Ulu Kinta

No Comments »

As an undergraduates back then as psychology students, this place is a must to visit and it is a dream come true because not everyone are allow to enter this place unless you are the staff over here or a patients. Everyone, this is Psychiatric Hospital in Malaysia. Most people find this place as a scary place but I found it as fascinating place, it is a wide opening experience to joined this trip with this bunch of great course-mates, an awesome trip and I learned a lot from here too! From the tour guide, speaker and the patient's itself.

The place isn't that scary as most people perceive, actually inside here is quite peaceful, the environment is clean, the scenery is beautiful and is huge! I don't think I can walk around for the tour, luckily we have bus to bring us to tour the whole hospital. It is well maintain despite the conditions and etc.

We also then allowed to visit their patients and talk to them besides just tour around the hospital, looking at the presentation slides from the speaker and museum. Oh ya, not to forget the skillful patient's in doing crafts! The crafts well be sell out to earn extra income, so people, do buy to show some support to them. Actually, there is a place that really attracted most of us but some feel insecure about it. It is the ward/clinic for patient's that convict criminal case. That place although we were just allow to visit the compound but it was nerve cracking, seriously I really would like to go in and see the place but I know the staff's over there will not allow us to do so due to safety reasons. The clinic/department are strictly and tightly armed by safety equipment's unlike the patients we visited before. Actually, it makes me even more curious and really would like to see it although deep inside my heart I was nervous and kind off scared too. Some of us purposely waited just to see whether we have the luck to come across peek some of it or police car drop by with the patient's but I guess we have no luck of it or the hospital staff's have arrange it carefully since there is visitation and they do not want something bad happen to the amateur students. Too bad so sad but I'm proud with the hospital staff's arrangements.

All the pictures was taken using my lousy phone camera back then and this is the best I can do to make the picture looks good and in good quality, also this is the best picture I have in my folder. though it is still all blurry, that is why I compiled all together and make it in one photo so, it doesn't looks so obvious.
This is my great and crazy bunch of course-mates during the passed three years of struggle, well not all in the picture only half of them in the picture because this trip is first come first get on board in the bus, we only have one bus for it. This is our group photo after visitation at the hospital and this photo I also steal from one of my course-mates. Thanks TY for sharing it! Seriously I really miss those days a lot! I miss my study life, working life is just too tiring...

P/s: Spot me if you can!

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.

And their address is...
49-F, Pengkalan Weld, 10300 Georgetown, Penang

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.

And their address is...

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...
