Logos Hope, World’s Largest Floating Book Fair in Port Klang

Weeks ago, I was at Logos Hope, World’s Largest Floating Book Fair. I thought it was sad enough that I had to miss the Big Bad Wolf Book fair, but well, I took this as a compensation. Not much of a reader, but well, I do read lah. But hey, I used to be forced into reading. Hence, my half-past-six English. But I realised the more I read, the more the slang creeps into my Cantonese, where it can be scary at times. Logos Hope, arrived at Port Klang. It was raining but I the weather was aweesome when we arrived there. Like, really.IMG_0879The journey was so long, that the first thing we do when we arrived at the Cruise Centre, to head to the toilet. Oh, I went with some families and friends. IMG_0880 This picture was meant for Jiahuei, and yes, I sent it all the way to the UK for her to show her some bits of my sampatness.IMG_0881 Logos Hope, parked right opposite Star Virgo ship. I can tell you how much I am tempted to get on Star Virgo, it’s gigantic and it looks really cooooool. Who wants to join me in it? =DIMG_0882 It’s rare I camwhore but I thought, its Sher Leen, and she needs the camera. It’s like, she equals camera kind. So I thought, let’s do a picture. I was just trying to “gratify” her needs of camwhoring okay? Haha.IMG_0883 I was also taken for a tour. And each of us had a tag. I was in the Germany team. I don’t know why Germany. IMG_0884 I was so hungry that snacks were just too irresistable. I bought this mega chocolate cookie. Really good stuffs yo. If it was warmed, it would also have been 10 times nicer.IMG_0885 She’s Jessica, our tour guide. Pretty friendly and nice.IMG_0886 IMG_0887 I got up to Deck 7. Quite the fun lah. I think I wanna live in there.. For A WEEK. Haha. You know I can’t stand being locked in a place kan?IMG_0888 I didn’t get to meet the captain. He’s on a break. He is quite the young. Apparently, he had a dream when he was young to be the captain of a Mission Ship. And now here he is, talk about living our dreams.IMG_0889 I can stalk people from this door. But I don’t know why an aunty turns out. Don’t ask la, okay?IMG_0890 This is the theater in the ship. Super cool I tell you. And it’s also used as a concert hall. Good lightings and looks like there were good sound systems too.IMG_0891 And after the tour, only we were allowed to head to the book fair. Not really. We got special invites, hence the tour. But hey, they’ve got a huge variety of books. Like, really a lot. From fictions to non-fictions, romance to adventure to even dictionaries. They also have CDs and DVDs for sale. Apparently, they have over 5000 books and CDs on board.IMG_0892 IMG_0893IMG_0894And since we were in Port Klang, we can’t run away from some seafood kan? So, we went for supper at this place at around 11pm. Thank goodness I don’t eat seafood. Else, I’d be sooooo the gemuk. Already am. Tell me about it. But I thought they had some delicious noodles too.IMG_0895 So, this boat is a travelling boat. I’m not too sure when it’s leaving. But I do think that this is quite an adventure. Poor people like me who have no access to Star Virgo, should at least go for this la. Haha. But yeah, if you wanna go for Star Virgo, hit me up yo! Would be more than happpy to gooo! :)

Caffeinees Cafe, Kampung Pandan / Jia Huei’s Farewell.

I won’t want to run away from the fact that time flies. Or probably, time flew. It was just a year ago where we started making fun of Jia Huei, that she will be leaving and how she will miss us and the things we would do without her. And true enough, in a blink, she is now gone, and I think she totally forgot about us already. Jia Huei, what more can I say. The fact that I dedicated 1 post for her here, shows how important she is in my (our) life. Yes, I slave-drived her when she was in town, but I’ve to say she did it all, with no hesitant. And I’ve to say lah, she is the best secretary ever. If she doesn’t get a job when she gets back, I can stand to testify she is the best secretary ever. Cut the junk, we did a farewell for her. And I thought we had so much time camwhoring and just make fun of her. And also, she is always remembered for her hair. Thats for sure.301006_10150288461063152_573143151_7694481_2123725371_n Our siao girls. I think they can get into some big things if you mess with them. Don’t try.301014_10150288441283152_573143151_7694337_1996046451_n I thought this was quite a beautiful picture apart from my messed up long hair.307358_10150288455433152_573143151_7694432_1192188178_n A picture that prolly means a lot by now. And can I just say something, the reason she is underdressed is because she didn’t know we were gonna do her a farewell. Bwahahaa. And hence, the shorts.310925_10150288461333152_573143151_7694484_596685454_n If this made you puke, you’re human. The feminine side of me.313282_10150288442023152_573143151_7694343_390003527_n See, I told you they can be up to something. Like, being the grasses for the flowers. Oh, I think these girls aim to head to Tanjung Rambutan one of these days. I am gonna be murdered this weekend.314304_10150288441498152_573143151_7694339_395340972_n Talking about the food, food pictures came from my phone. Not too sure why it was a lil blurry. Prolly I was having too much fun. Here’s the Mushroom Soup, quite the thick.IMG_0724 IMG_0725 Eh, this mango yogurt thingy quite the best. I can drink it all over again without feeling jelak.IMG_0727 One of their drinks. I thought this was Milo, but nah, it’s some choco drink.IMG_0728 Pasta – Seafood Aglio Olio. I thought the picture didn’t look too good, but apparently, it didn’t taste too bad.IMG_0729 Fish and Chips. Nothing extraordinary I thought.IMG_0730 Carbonara! I tell you, I’ve been thinking about Carbonara the past say.. 3 days? And I’ve not had it yet. Quite depressing I know.IMG_0731 I had this. I thought the serving was toooooooo small. Can you see the “oooo”? But it wasn’t too bad actually.IMG_0732 I heard this was really really good. Can’t remember the name of the sauce. It starts with a “M” if I’m not mistaken.IMG_0733 I heard this was not too bad, BUT the Salmon had bones. I can tell you, the moment I heard that, it was quite a turn-off. I am lazy like that.IMG_0734 Desserts.. I’ve to say the serving looks really good. Looks quite appetizing too lah. :) And this didn’t taste too bad actually.IMG_0735 This was the Tiramisu thingy. Loved how it was served. Quite the romantic la, if you think about it. And I am thinking of the drama side of it, like put a ring in it.. Bla Bla Bla.. I am not such a hopeless romantic after all, eh?IMG_0736 So, I’ve to say it was quite a fun time. And yes, this is an overdue post. But because of Jia Huei, I thought I’d flatter her for a few minutes la. Why not kan? Since she bought me Teasers when she was there, and SHE WILL CONTINUE TO BUY THEM FOR ME. All in all, her laughter, her presence and her hair.. WILL BE MISSED. ___________________________________________________________________________ Caffeinees Cafe Address: No.16, Jalan Kampung Pandan, 55100, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Outdated Post: Singapore 2010

The title says it all. This is an outdated post. I was clearing my desktop a while ago and these folders still pops up there as I’ve yet to write about it. So, this is a summary of what happened when I was in Singapore 2010 with my family and some friends. It was a great trip. I think all of my Singapore trips are just amazing. I also know where’s where already being there so often. Being a good brother, starting this post with a picture with my sister. IMG_1250 The view is so much better than just this picture. I think the picture is just an “understatement” of how great the view was.IMG_1255 I rarely take pictures with my brother. Not sure if this was a candid shot or if it was planned. But a picture with my very own brother is like.. GOLD? Haha.IMG_1256 IMG_1257 And here’s when the sister decides to join the brothers!IMG_1258 I’ve said this and I am saying this AGAIN. If you are in Singapore, you cannot avoid Bens and Jerrys ice cream. It’s like some really really good stuffs, minus the long queues. Love the texture and unique flavours. Don’t remind me about being fat. If I am right, Vivocity or Harbour Front has one.IMG_1265 IMG_1266  You shan’t go to Singapore if you are NOT visiting the Universal Studios. I mean, come on. It’s like the “IN” thing.IMG_1277 IMG_1281 This is one ride I would prolly play over and over again. But call me stupid, I played this as my first ride. And I was the only one who got ALL WET! Like, first ride. All wet. No joke. But it was really really fun. I am now tempted to go there just for this ride!IMG_1283 It goes on a rotation, and if you are lucky, you get WET. And I was lucky. I am just trying to be optimistic aight? 😛IMG_1284 IMG_1285 Some kiddy ride for a break.IMG_1286 IMG_1287 This is a mini-roller coaster which I thought it was not that mini after all.IMG_1290 Jurassic Park. Not fully opened when I was there, but I want you to know it’s wicked.IMG_1292 Oooooh. And the roller coaster. Like for real. I love this. I went in twice. Haha. And I cheated my mum into going in with me on the second round. How evil can I be?IMG_1295 IMG_1299 Here’s the grand entrance. The tall designs and built are quite amazing la. I really admire them actually. IMG_1312 This is a “vomit-generator”. I can really puke sitting in it any longer than 5 minutes. It’s so super fast and dizzzzy!IMG_1315 IMG_1316 IMG_1319 :O Hot stuffs la! Hot! She is damn fierce ok? I wonder if her assets are real. Shhh.IMG_1322 IMG_1323 This is the shopping alley. It’s crazily expensive, but some things are really cute and unique la. If you’ve a girlfriend to please, maybe you can grab some things in there!IMG_1331 IMG_1332 IMG_1333 This is me trying to think that being fat is okay. Just saying.IMG_1334 SHREKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK. This 4D thingy is awesome beyond words. I love how the effects made me feel all crazy.IMG_1339 IMG_1340 I know the food is frigging pricy. But, you’ve not much of a choice actually. IMG_1342 Some satay rice. Haha. Not really sure. It doesn’t look that appetising, does it?IMG_1343 The outdoor roller coaster was not opened when we were there. :(IMG_1344 IMG_1349 He is SHORTER THAN ME! And he is so small size la. Like, really.IMG_1351 … but he’s friendly. I really admire how they get into their character the moment they walk out.IMG_1352 This picture is awful. But it was taken to tag friends. Bwahahaha. I am evil like that.IMG_1354 This is like a wicked LIVE studio and it shows you how they shoot and more. Quite an experience.IMG_1355 They look evil and fierce. My HI was rejected.IMG_1361 How can you not take a picture with the globe when you are at Universals Studio Singapore?IMG_1363 Also, I went to Marina Bay. It was some new year event they were having. People can thrown in balls with their wishes. I wanted to write my number and throw it in, but it was only for Singapore citizens.IMG_1368 Ooh. I had lunch at one of this Chinese Restaurant in a hospital. Unique food, and the desserts were craazy! They had some really nice cubicles of … kuih? Not really, not too sure actually. But it has a really sweet tastes and apparently it’s good for health. See the irony?IMG_1375 IMG_1376IMG_1377This is some digestive apple juice after the meal. I was drinking things from test tube. But the juice was fresh and awesome. I won’t mind having them more often. IMG_1378 IMG_1379 And on our way back, our Ms Crazy. She has more ugly photogs. But I decided to be nice for once.IMG_1380 So, Singapore. I do miss you much. Imma be back. Soon.

Bin Xiang Bak Kut Teh, Puchong

If you’ve been following me closely, you should know, I don’t really fancy things with bones. I am lazy that way. I prolly think I need a wife that makes good food with no bones in the future. Tell me if you have some recommendations. I surely will consider, if she cooks food with no bones. Nevertheless, here’s a great Bak Kut Teh called Bin Xiang. I don’t know what Bin Xiang means. I am a banana. But here’s the thing, I may not really enjoy bonny chicken BUT.. I do enjoy Bak Kut Teh soup. I love the unique taste. And you know, I dream of having Bak Kut Teh in the winter. It might be the bestest thing EVER!DSC_5960Located at Puchong, this place has a pretty traditional set up. Though I don’t like these straight chairs. I think it still looks cool lah. Who on earth sits on such straight chairs these days again? But hey, you eat Bak Kut Teh the traditional way too! Legs up and dig some nose, use your hands. Just saying. DSC_5953 DSC_5955 DSC_5956 Also, serving you a great variety of Chinese tea, this is like really going back to the days of some emperor or some sort.DSC_5958I love the pot. Haha. But I hate how much it can fill. Like, seriously. Do I have to call for the refill every.. 5 minutes? But for the sake of “feeling traditional”, not harm kan? DSC_5959If you eat Bak Kut Teh without rice, you are weird. But I know most girls do so without rice.   DSC_5966 This actually tastes amazing. Not too spicy, for me. But I think the amount of meat in there, can actually feed me full for the next half a day. The succulent meat, served in hot claypot – I think it’s the best thing ever lah. Apart from the bones. I am fussy that way.DSC_5967Eh, yau char kuay or also known as yau tio is something I must talk about. I am a fan of fried stuff, remember? And don’t get me pronouncing yau char kuay, it will always sound weird. But imagine deeping the yau char kuay into the soup. I loveee it lah. I can do only yau char kuay without the rice. Tell me how fattening it can be.DSC_5987 I think I loved this the most of all the option. Love the soup, the fu chuk and of course, mushroom. And prolly the ultimate reason? – LESS BONES! But this is kickass. I really think you should try this. Personal recommendation.DSC_5968 DSC_5969 DSC_5970 DSC_5971 DSC_5973Looks can be deceiving. But I still think this is awesome super awesome stuff la. The SOUPPPP!DSC_5972  DSC_5974DSC_5976If you can take fat meat, here you go. Not a fan. But it does give you quite a fair bit of “fats” in it. My uncle loves them as far as I know.DSC_5984 So, give this a try.DSC_5986So, savour your taste buds with the unique tastes of the beloved local delicacy, steaming hot bak kut teh soup filled with the tender, juicy pork ribs. And of course, soothe your throat and excite your senses with the fragrant concoction of herbal ingredients that have been endlessly brewed by the Bin Xiang chefs just for you. Yes, this is Cina Chinese food. Not exactly sure where it comes from. But I love the soup. I love chicken without bones. And thats about it.

Bosphorus Turkish Cuisine, Pavilion KL

I may look big to you; but if you truly know me, I ain’t really adventurous where I go around trying food of all kinds. But I thought after some persuasions from my colleague, I thought, FINE. Let me just go your it. So, this is one-of-a-kind Turkish Restaurant located in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur and has been there for around 6 years. I prolly always passed by but have never thought of going in. Like I said, I am no adventurous guy.   IMG_0811 Serving authentic Turkish cuisine, this is definitely one of the few Turkish Restaurant in Pavilion. It has a really really simple setting with some Turkish touch in it. I am a strong believer of SIMPLICITY.IMG_0812 Okay, I had the urge to write this. You can actually stalk people from inside. Sheesh. You can see hot people and things happening. 6th floor in Pavilion has quite a lot of “good stuffs”. Ask me personally what I’ve seen. 😛IMG_0813 Started the meal with a Turkish tea. It’s nothing like Chinese tea. It has a strong scent, a lil bitter but I won’t mind drinking it again. I actually love it.IMG_0810This is some kind of bread which I loved when it was being served hot. I mean, whatever served hot also best kan?IMG_0816 IMG_0817 Turkish salad. It’s different from those that I usually eat. But it’s unique.IMG_0818 I’ve to say I’m officially a fan of this soup. You know what? I’ve been eating and drinking things without knowing their names. Forgive me please big time. It’s a lil sour and not too filling. Yes, I repeat. I actually loved this. Must try.IMG_0819 Main course. I think this is some lamb and eggplant thing. Not a fan of eggplant but I think the mixture does bring out a unique taste.IMG_0820 This one. My favourite. I think it’s prolly our favourite (myself, Jeremy and Linora) It has some buns below, some lamb on top; served with some yogurt. Yes, yogurt. I did thought it was weird initially. But hey, I tried. And you know what’s the best? It’s BONELESS! I mean, by now, you should know kan? I love boneless food. I would marry someone who would take out all the bones in my meals. Just saying! 😛IMG_0821 WARNING: THIS IS ADDICTIVE. It’s big, puffy and all. Now, I feel like having one in office every single day. Like, I can work while get a bite at the same time. Kan best?IMG_0822 Desserts! I have a sweet tooth. I know it’s prolly so friggin’ fattening; but I actually had like 1 and a half of this! Not too sweet actually. But if it gets any sweeter, I think it’s gonna be so jelak-tofying.IMG_0823 This is a lil sweeter. But I am a nut-fanatic. So, it has nuts in it. So aku suka. Sweet and crunchy. It does feels like Ferraro Roche at certain bites. IMG_0827IMG_0824 I’m not gonna be too hardworking deleting pictures from my album. So, here’s a picture of Jeremy with his Turkish coffee mark. I don’t know whats with the eyes. I think he trained hard to have that Korean-looking eyes. =PIMG_0825I am no famous superstar. So here’s the people I grabbed a bite with on that Saturday afternoon.IMG_0828IMG_0829 So here you go, some authentic Turkish cuisine in Malaysia. I really think that you should at least give Turkish food a try.

Westlife Gravity Tour 2011 – Malaysia

So, I’ve been criticised for talking so much about Westlife. But hey, I grew up listening to them and their songs. I can really sing some of their songs without lyrics. So, this is like a dream come true. And more so, I Love Discounts is involved with it, I kinda had more reasons to go for it. Held on the 7th October 2011 at Stadium Putra Bukit Jalil, the 4 Irish boyband rocked the house in front of a crowd of over 7,600. I am 1 of the 7,600. Reached the place around 3pm to help out in some ticketings and walkabout. IMG_0788This is when the setting up was done for the Premium and Platinum guests. I thought it was fantastic. It was prolly done 20 minutes before guests started coming in? And I think they are the champions of multi-tasking. Like, really. And it was empty about an hour ago, and there you go, magic!IMG_0790 IMG_0791 I tweeted this and I want to say this again. Guys camwhore too. But just that we do it in a more stylo-milo way. Bwahahaha.IMG_0792 IMG_0793 A briefing for the I LIKE IT Crew for I Love Discounts. I might be sued for putting up pictures without their sunglasses and wig. But, yeah. Imma sure they treated you so well with their charm and sweetness.IMG_0794 Before heading out, a big group picture. They really do have style! :)IMG_0795 And they weren’t really familiar with each other, but I think they made good friends.IMG_0796 How can we not take pics without the singers right? There they go.IMG_0797 IMG_0799 IMG_0800 Entering the concert hall. With Lilian and Chin Leng. I think we had the best seats ever thanks to I LOVE DISCOUNTS. Fabulous seating. Not too far, ain’t too near.IMG_0802 We sang along to almost all 14 songs they sang that night. I admire their energy and passion in singing. It’s just toooo amazing!IMG_0803 More concert feel. Lovin’ the lightings though I thought it could have been a lil more creative. I love how they have the chemistry with each other on stage.IMG_0804 IMG_0806IMG_0809 Met up with Sarah Yang and Joseph Lam after the concert. They were on the same row on the other end. I think we are freaks. We got deaf (almost) and I (almost) can’t speak today. But I still think it was amazing!IMG_0811 IMG_0812 All in all, if you’ve missed this, I think you’ve missed out loads big time. Maybe, we can sing for you la. I don’t wanna upload the 4 videos I took. There’s just too much of my sucky voice in it that I think you shouldn’t spoil your ear drums with my horrible singing. Growing up listening to them, singing their songs have truly been an inspiration for me. Being who I am, singing at times, I realised, I’ve prolly got my vocal trainings from them.
