Are you familiar with the brand name called TicTac?

four famous favorite of TicTac

Still remember the taste of a TicTac? Is this your favourite?
It's so amazing that this product has survived so many years even older than me... Anyone know which is the original favor of TicTac? I meant which favor is the first to come out?

Guess what? Today the TicTac has come with various form and various beans. I even saw one box of Minions TicTac... this is how the company survived generations. Until today kids are so fond of TicTac because they have evolved on their packaging too.

Drum please... Let me introduce you the GIANT TicTac

McAloo Tikki

Are you keen to try this McAloo Tikki? Now available in McDonald's Singapore all the way from India. When i WIKI McAloo Tikki, I got to know Aloo Tikki is a snack made out of Potatoes and Spice which originated from Northern India.

Guess what? I also found this in WIKI
"The McAloo tikki burger, a trademark of McDonald's served at McDonald's restaurants in India, UAE and other countries with large Indian populations, is not a true representation of the traditional food"

Now, Singapore has been recognized with Large Indian Population by McDonald's. When will McAloo Tikki be in Malaysia? Hmmm... maybe not cause Malaysia is truly Banglasia Not India... Muhahaha :p

Last Saturday after gym workout at The Curve, had lunch with my friend. Friend brought me to watch this piano performance at the Curve "An afternoon with Yang I Deun" a Korean pianist on a rounded stage in the middle of the open area near McDonalds, BodyShop etc.

Surprisingly he has his own fans club. A lot of people were there for his performance. Before he started his performance, his fans already waiting for him to perform... *thumbs up*

Look at the boy... he was so curious and wanted to go closer... Not sure whether he wanted to touch the piano?

Do you play piano?

On watching LIVE performance @ Alexis Ampang

My newly known friend has arranged a night out at the Alexis Ampang for a LIVE performance by Bihzhu from Penang.

We had our dinner at Alexis Ampang... Dinner was so so and to me the Alexis burger was not that great. The Fatboy, Chillis and TGIF burger is way way better than Alexis burger. I should have order their Asian food ;-)

Alexis Burger
According to my friends, the Alexis Restaurant famous for its Tiramitsu

We actually order two different cakes for our dessert to share...

Two Different Cakes for dessert

 At around 10 something, the LIVE performance started and the performer started singing all kind of songs including Reggae, American blues, Jazz and one kiddie songs Xiao Bai Chuan... The performance was very good. 

LIVE performance by Bihzhu

The performance lasted around 2 hours included the break. I managed to buy her first album and gotten her autography... There are 6 songs in total, the song i like most is the Xiao Bai Chuan.

Bihzhu's first Album
Thanks to my friend invited me to this nice LIVE performance and night out...
Here you go the Xiao Bai Chuan that i like...

On Watching Percy Jackson and the sea monsters

I went to watch the Percy Jackson and the sea monsters with one friend of mine. Bought the movie ticket before hitting the gym.

Met my friend around 19:00 and went to Pho Hoa for Vietnamese Beef Noodles. After the dinner we went for the movie. The Percy Jackson is quite nice as it's not lengthy. The movie finished around 1.5 hours. 

I personally thinks that it's worth to watch the movie... I don't wanna to be the spoiler for the movie. :p Go ahead and watch it eh~

Hungry Ghost Month

You will kind of know when the Hungry Ghost Month (HGM) approaching...
1) The horror movies in the national TV
2) Lots of people sicks
3) Live concert by the roadside with the first and second rows of chair empty
4) Prayer booth setup by the roadside and within the temple

When i was a little kid, i usually very scare of Hungry Ghost Month. Maybe thanks to those ghost movies and commercial that reflected the scary part of the HGM and those people whom pray to those hungry ghost on the street...

14th days of the HGM was the most happening day according to the old people. There were the day that lots of hungry ghost wondering around the street... So usually my mom will ask me to come back home as early as possible. But I think that's the practice for most of the people as the street is empty on that day.

I found this clip regarding on how the Malaysian Chinese pray during the HGM...

On visiting MacRitchie Trail, Singapore

A lot of people have the same mindset of myself... when we mentioned Singapore, this is the image that comes up to our mind...

Guess what? Singapore has lots more to offer... The MacRitchie Trail is a very nice natural reserve park which covered a very wide area.

MacRitchie Trails Map
We decided to go with the Orange Color trail which is 7.0km return. This trail is not a difficult trail as mentioned in the map... Interesting enough after 200m, we walked into the jungle like path...

The Trail
Along the trail, we are greeted with a small stream parallel with the trail. No fishes were detected...

The Stream

The Trail

After 3.1km, we finally came to the gate of the HSBC TreeTop Walk. The main attraction of MacRitchie Trail. 

Gate to the HSBC TreeTop Walk
It's a one way to the other sides... Meaning you could not walk back to this end. The exit is over the other end of the TreeTop walk.

TreeTop Walk
From the TreeTop Walk, we managed to see the MacRitchie Reservoir... Due to the hot sun... we took a few shots and left the place and back to the trail...

Can you see the MacRitchie Reservoir?
We managed to finished the whole 7km trail within 2.5-3 hrs. The recommended time to complete this trail is 3-4 hours. Hahaha... we still consider Fit :p 

More pictures @ A picture A day.

Can you reserve a gym locker? @ Fitness First

A: Excuse Me, you are using my locker
B: I thought no one is using this locker
A: Don't you see there is a set of Towel in the locker?
B: You mean the gym towel? I though the other person just forgot to return.
A: It's mine that i left inside... Can you get another locker?
B: *shut the locker door and proceed to the toilet*
A: *shouted @ B* Can you understand what i meant?
B: How could you use the Towel to reserve the locker?
A: Are you going to give it back to me? (B has placed all the stuff and got changed to his gym clothing)

Me: I'm going to leave right now. You may use this locker.
B: Do you mind using that locker instead?
A: Okay~ *unhappy*

I believe A has placed the towel and got out from the locker room to do something... not sure why he don't lock the locker. Maybe the card was not working... 

So, can you reserve a gym locker using the Gym Towel? Why in the first place B go to take out the gym Towel and get the locker. (there is the only upper deck locker available). Maybe B have not choice to get the one.
