2010 Flashback : October - December

Nothing much to write about for this last quarter of the year... It's just a normal day to day life.


Climate change has given us so much pain and disaster around the world. I think we should have started to learn how to save the environment. On this month, I got invited to an opening of a very meaningful exhibition called Facing the Climate which the world famous cartoonist gathered and exhibited their work regarding climate change. The purpose of this exhibition is to trigger the awareness of how important for us to save the environment.

Short breakaway from my hectic work and followed my friends to Penang for the Penang Bridge Run. I didn't run as i was too tired after a whole weeks of working late. But i had an enjoyable trip thought. Before that weekend, i decided to make a big change which i will blog about it next year. Stay tune for the change eh~

Anyway, the highlight of this quarter yet to come... it's about starting to countdown to year 2011... how many hours to go... Hmmm... Do look at the side banner...  ------>

Anyway, let me show you what i taken on year 2010 countdown @ KLCC...

So how will be this year countdown like... Stay tune eh~

Happy New Year
May all of us have a better year ahead eh~

NEW YEARS EVE - Dinner and Karaoke

Lots of people will attending the gala dinner which consist of Dinner and Dance... I wanna to have a different type of new years eve dinner ... The Dinner + Karaoke... 

How to have dinner + karaoke? I'm a shy person and will not sing on the stage.. not even in the bathroom. So the dinner + karaoke is actually singing inside the box painted in RED. Okay it's...


After shopping for restaurant in the Curve, most of the restaurant have prepared the New Year's Eve dinner set which charging their customers sky high price. For instance, Tony Roma's is charging RM79.90++ for a 4 course meal while TGIF is charging roughly the same price... Sigh~

So at the end, we decided to have a different way of having dinner... We will have dinner and karaoke @ REDBOX the Curve. I'm looking forward to this Friday as this is the first time to sing together with this group of friends.

So, what's your New Year's Eve plan? Where are you going to have dinner?

2010 Flashback: July - September


What's hot in July... Of course not to forget to mention the World Cup. I seldom watched football but on the month of July, I went for football watching with my boss and colleagues in one of the pub nearby my office.
BTW, what new's for me? I was officially a user of iPhone 3gs... Last but not least, the highlight of the month was I participated the international photographing event i.e. Scott Kelby International Photo Walk in Malacca. The picture was taken during the walk... nice?

Stressful month for me. The project that i handled was so challenging with lots of issues. Time was not enough and moreover required to work long hours and weekends. Luckily i managed to get a short break to Eagle Ranch, Port Dickson with three of my friends to release some of the stress. Nice weekend getaway :)

Nothing much happening in this month... mainly focus and get myself tight up with work, work and work. The hectic work schedule has eaten into my gym time which forced me to switch my gym hour to early morning before heading to office.

2010 Flashback: April - June

Let's continue with April - June...


First night out with my colleagues... A fun night and get to know my colleagues better during these social night out. Besides the fun of the night out... This month I had a chance to getaway from my busy work and city to a nice and quiet beach in the east coast. Where i went? Kijal Awana... not a very clean beach but better than West coast :)


"Salaam" A word the Iranian use when they greet people and friends. My company sent me for business trip in Iran for about 3 weeks. The Iranian culture gave me a shock... Anyway, it's a nice experience which i might not be able to get that again. 


Due to busy and challenging work, whenever there is a chance to take a break. TZ will get the opportunities to getaway from those days. TZ paid a visit with his friends to a small town in Perak. Anyone know where TZ went?

Stay tune for Q3 and Q4 eh~

Last but not least... Let hear Josh Groban

I'm sick since Friday... it's getting worst after the party @ Mist Club Bangsar. Now i'm having sore throat after taking the whole bottle of Pringles that i bought yesterday...

Anyway, I went to gym tonight and sweat after working for about an hour. Feeling nice but the throat is not improving :( Serve myself right for eating those chips. 

My friends are asking me to see the doctor... I think maybe i should drive to HKL and meet the doctors. 

Okay, gotta go and take my medicine now. Antihistamine, Paracetamol and lozenge.

2010 flashback: Jan - March

9 Days to go ... A new year... A new hope... So let's Flashback on year 2010.

Started working again after a long enjoyable study leaves. I started to go back to the corporate world on Jan 4th 2010. Work in this current company was not as smooth as the baby skin... In fact, it's like roller coaster. Anyway, i managed to ride on the roller coaster and move on... My birthday is on the month of January. So i celebrated my birthday in Tony Roma's with my parent and TGIF with my friends.

Chinese New Years... A month with so many great food and mingling errrrr... in fact gossiping :p This year i drove alone to Penang for CNY. Why? My parent was celebrating the new year in Vietnam with my sister. I couldn't go as i just started my work and have no leaves :(

5 Elements of my life turned 3 years old... still a baby but it's a great milestone that i still continue with blogging even though i was have a long hours working time. One very sad things was the Kasubi Tombs in Uganda Africa got burnt down... It was a nice heritage site which i visited when i was in Uganda Africa.

Early Xmas Party @ Mist Club

The Santarina has given out 4 passes to the lucky listener of her show via FlyFM... I bet my friend is a good boy this year. He got the 4 passes for the party organized by FlyFm @ Mist Club Bangsar. I'm also a good boy as i was invited together with two others friends to this party :)

Oops~ I'm hungry now.... Too bad it's too dark, otherwise i will post some food shots to make you hungry too...

Followed by all the nice dancing song played by the house DJs... we didn't dance as we were on the patio (the VIP area and not @ the dance floor. It has been such a long time i didn't go to such a party and i felt young again as what my friend said.  >...<

We left the place at about 2am with a little tipsy...

UFO headquarter

Okay, if you read my previous post about Beeping UFO... Now let's visit the UFO headquarter eh~ The UFO headquarter actually famous for its dessert with the natural ingredient. The UFO headquarter is called SnowFlakes.

If you taste ABC which i believe all Malaysian should have tasted ABC... the dessert they served is the extended version of ABC... more variety... So it is an icy dessert. By the way, why i called the shop the UFO headquarter? After you order your dessert, they will give you a caller device (beeping UFO).

When your order is ready, the device will flash and beep... then you have to walk over to the collection counter as quickly as possible... coz everyone is watching you... maybe this is the tactic to make the customer to collect their dessert fast :p

Do the dessert look yummy? It's actually very nice but i think the price is a bit high for a dessert. Guess what? I passed by the outlet @ Sunway damansara last night around 10pm. The whole shop was full of people. 

Have you been to Snowflakes? If not it's worth to give them a try :)

Carry heavy = macho?

Bing Bomb! a loud noise of one huge object dropped on the floor. Everyone turned to the direction where the loud noise came from... So what happen?

No worry, it's not the end of the world. Not the atomic bomb, not something dropped from the rack... It's those annoying gym goers that thought by carry heavy weight is kind of macho...Ended up they could not handle and start throwing the weight to the floor.

So, do you think it's macho to carry weights beyond control?

On Meeting Mr. Potter

Few friends and I have decided to pay a visit to e@curve to meet Mr. Potter. Given that Mr. Potter is a very busy person... he has setup many slots in a day just to let people meeting him. We managed to get the appointment @ 2:45pm. 

Guess what? Two of my friends are the royal fans of Mr. Potter, they have been follow on Mr. Potter foot print since day one... Errrr... maybe we should say they have been stalking Mr. Potter since day 1,  so they were so keen to meet Mr. Potter once they know that Mr. Potter is in e@Curve... as for me i just went along the flow and get this opportunity to meet Mr. Potter too. 

At 2:45pm : The meeting started... This was a long meeting as the meeting lasted until 5:15pm... It was about 2.5 hours meeting. During the meeting i felt asleep few times as the meeting was a bit boring... But the meeting getting more and more interesting when more action kicked in. Unfortunately, we need another meeting in the near future to draw the conclusion. So i'm not sure when we can meet Mr. Potter again.. hopefully Mr. Potter can address the outcome of the whole meeting in the next meet up eh~

If you haven't meet Mr. Potter... Do meet him up in these few weeks eh~ Before he flown away. Make an appointment as early as possible to avoid disappointment eh~

Relaxing Weekend @ Penang

Nov 19th - We left Penang on Friday evening after Thursday camp out in the office to ensure the system is good to go... Anyway, not sure exactly what has happened to the system as i haven't had a chance to talk to my colleagues. I have a peaceful and relaxing weekend getaway in Penang although it was a short one. The drive from KL to Penang was so challenging as it rained from KL to Taiping. At the end we reached Penang and checked into the hotel.

Nov 20th - Because of the work late the week before and the day before Friday, i was so tired... ended up i slept most of the time during the weekend... So i didn't visit any place in Penang other than Hard Rock Hotel / Cafe for dinner.

Nov 21st - Left Penang @ about 1pm and arrived KL @ 4:30pm... it was a bumper to bumper drive with slow morning traffic some part of the North South Highway. But we were so luck as few of my friends left few hours later than us and still on their way back...

Drive Safely...

Soup @ EspresSOUP

Have you tasted the clam chowder in San Francisco? Yes/No? You may taste the nice clam chowder in your neighborhood now... There are 8 outlets of EpresSOUP in surrounding Klang Valley that ofter nice soup...  

Last weekend, i went with my friends to the EpresSOUP for a quick bites after gym. The outlet that i went to is located in MPH the Curve. The layout of the shop is cozy, simple and nice. 

There are few variety of soup to choose from... vegetarian, meaty etc... I ended up chosen the Clam Chowder as i missed the Clam Chowder that i have eaten in Fisherman Wharf, San Francisco few years back. 

The Clam Chowder served in freshly baked bread

Broke the bread and let the soup flowed out. Do you see the clam?

TZ has attacked half of the bread and soup... Yummy~

We also ordered a chicken salad to share... but the salad looked good. Unfortunately it didn't taste good. The leaves was not fresh and the whole salad was so watery. In addition, the salad taste so salty... So i would NOT recommend the chicken salad. Yet to order the other salad dish. Anyway, the EpresSoup really need to improve their chicken salad. *Two Thumb Down*

it looked nice but taste was disappointed

Anyway, I would recommend their soup dishes. The rest of the dishes i couldn't comment as i haven't tried yet. So if you have been to espresSOUP and tasted their soup or others dishes... don't mind sharing with us eh~ :)

Now, are you hungry?

I'm sick, I need rest...

I left early this afternoon from work... Not to go to gym. Not to be lazy. But...

Picture captured from

I'm sick. I need rest... I started to lose my voice, my hand was cold under the full blast air con. My head was spinning and my body temperature was unstable. I felt those since morning when i stepped into the office. So after lunch my body temperature climbed up... slight fever i belief.

Anyway, by 3pm i started to feel cold in the aircon. Whenever i feel cold in the air con room, it's the time to announce i'm Sick. I could tolerate very cold temperature if i'm not sick. So i decided to wrap up my work and left my office early.

While heading to my car @ the carpark, i made a call to my mom and told her i was going back for dinner. So once i reached home at about 4:30pm, took a shower and straightaway hit the bed... Slept like a pig :p

Unfortunately, my colleagues called me and woke me up to complaint another colleagues regarding she has not getting any reply from the person that she needed them today... Sigh~ She knew i was sick and she still buzzed me for this...Can i get a few hours off to recover from my sickness so that i could continue to work today... Sigh Sigh Sigh...

So i ended up doing another round of exercise by climbing up the staircase until 23rd floors. Before that i was having an hour of RPM and had a quick bites... i didn't expect this will happen because this was the first time...

After the climb i was sop with sweats and was so soooo soooo tired. Anyway, please don't make me climb again eh~. Okay~ Now i need to hit the bed to recharge those energy lost during these two exercises. Ciao~

Something Shifted

Not the movie Switch... It's actually something in my life and usual time/schedule has been switched since i was tight up with this current project.

Those switches are

  1. Time to go to gym: Switch from evening to morning
  2. Time to do business (poo) : Switch from morning to night.
  3. Time to wake up in the morning:  Pull in 2.5 hours to cater for morning gym.
  4. Time to sleep: Remain the same. 

According to my mom, she said it's good to sleep before 11pm. But given i just got off work on 10pm daily for the past one week, by the time i reached home and took a shower, it's already 11 something... and i also took my daily vegetables intake (snack). So how to sleep early... Sigh~

Anyway, my eyes are tired now... gotta hit the bed now and wake up at 5:30am for gym.

BKT Sunday

One of the tasty food that you wouldn't want to miss when you are in Klang... What food is that? Of cause everyone know it's Bak Kut Teh (Stew Pork in herbs).

I got a chance to taste this famous BKT last Sunday. This shop has been there for 70 years and still very popular in Klang old is the first BKT in Malaysia. 

Before the BKT session, My friends and I paid a visit to the Klang Run for it event as the photographer and cheering another friend of mine who was running... I bet you have read his post regarding the run eh~ Anyway, after he started to run. We also run to the BKT place beside the bridge near the Klang train station.

Fun For it - Klang

Because we were early, the BKT was still cooking so we waited for 30 mins until 7:30am to get our first bowl of BKT. The wait was kind of torturing with the nice smell from the cooking of BKT... But anyway, it was a nice chatting to catch up with friends too while sipping the tea. What a nice relaxing Sunday...

So, are you craving for yummilicious BKT now? I bet the answer is YES. Anyway, I was having too much pork last weekend in Klang and Banting. That bring me to workout hard in Gym for the rest of the week to stay inline with my goal to achieve 6 packs. LoL...
