Raya Break

I am in a mood of blogging tonight! :)

During Raya break, I had almost 4 1/2 days off. My boss was kind enough to let us work from home on last Friday after lunch. That means, I could come home earlier and do some stuffs at home. During the weekends, I have been sleeping for >10 hours a day to compensate my sleep after a very hectic month in September.

On my trip back to Taiping this weekend, EG's mum gave me a new non-stick pot and a new non-stick frying pan. It looks really tempting and I wanted to start cooking. However, frying / cooking is prohibited in my place as EG always complains it will make the whole kitchen oily. The only thing that I can do is boiling soup or some "tong soi". So sad right?

Anyway, after begging and persuading for sometimes, FINALLY, EG allows me to cook for Tuesday's dinner. Yippppie... I was happy because I could try out the new pots.

So, we bought some chicken, potatoes, carrots from Giant, threw it all into the big boiling pot together with a big onion, garlics, salt, etc. And taaadaaaaa.....

I don't know the name of this soup.... I learnt it from EG's mum

EG wanted to just have the soup for dinner initially, but I insisted there should be at least a vegetable. And I rejected his proposal to boil the vegetable together in the soup (YUCKS!). I chased him out of the kitchen. I boiled some broccoli, put it aside. Then, chopped some garlics and fry it together with some minced pork and oyster sauce *with the new frying pan*. And taaaadddaaaaaaa......

Broccoli with minced pork

OK, I know both the dishes are really simple and they don't look too appertizing in the picture. But anyway, to my surprise, EG finished the whole pot of soup (approx 3 big bowls) so I guess it wasn't too bad. And he said the broccoli was nice. I was quite surprise that he actually could eat so much for dinner! But I was happy that at least my cooking passed his fussy taste buds!

Anyway, the new pots are really nice to use - maybe it's because they're new pots. Hehe... And today, I used it to boil barley again.

Now, you guys know where did EG's tummy come from? :P

Btw, just another sharing for fun. EG took a real cute pic - soft toys that EG and I bought for each other. You guess which one was from me for him and vice versa.

Good friends

Couple Lifestyle Trailer

Continuation from my previous blog entry on Couple Lifestyle Photography.

Finally, the long awaited Couple Lifestyle Video trailer is up in Weddingstory website. I have never taken any video before and I have been kinda anxious to know if we'll look awkward in front of the video. However, to my surprise, we turned out to be quite natural!

Check the video out. It's actually a documentary of how Whizarts took our photos. A cool concept.

We just got our free photos and our photo montage from Whizarts last weekend and now, we're waiting for Weddingstory's turn!

I am addicted to facebook. Hopelessly.

Facebook - A friend asked me, is it a book where you can put your face at? Well, sort of. In fact, facebook is just another social networking website - just like Friendster or Multiply. However, Facebook has much more functions and features that will make the user addicted to it.

The first thing that made me addicted to facebook was the adopted FLUFF FRIEND. There were a lot of animals or even tofu that you can choose to adopt. And you can buy food with your munny from the fluff shop and feed your fluff friend so that they have better mood and to increase their speed. However, fluff friend might not like all the food. So you got to trial and error, and buy different food for fluff friend till you find the food that he/she/it likes. For my penguin~, she loves sweet rich things like the TACO, Choco-Mango Delight and Cookies. And she hates brocolli the most!

My Penguin~'s feeding history

There are several ways you can earn the munny. By petting your friend's fluff friend, you earn 5 munny for each. However, the most interesting one is to bet on race. And that's really addictive. Funny thing is, for every hour, fluff friend will feel tired after 8 races. It needs to rest before it can race again for the next hour. Interesting....

OK, the winner is EG's smelly cat!

Facebook allows the user to add in as much application as you like. There are thousands of application where you can incorporate into your facebook profile. There are games, walls, virtual gifts, calendar, horoscope, and much much more to be included in your profile. You can upload videos, draw a graffiti to your friends, or you can also be naughty to get your friends' attention by throwing a cow, kiss, hug, slap, moon, wink, wave, smile at, party with, kick, bite, give a flowers/beer to them and etc etc.

Last night, EG and I installed Scrabulous in our facebook. And we played 2 rounds with each other. Again, we had a great time and good laugh as both of us were being cheeky and funny to tease each other and to beat each other. Well, the game is fair. We won one game each!

My winning game. :P

Another application that made me stick to my laptop for the past 2 hours was PACMAN! Gosh, that's such an old game that we played while we're kids. I never expect I could actually be addicated so much to it. In Facebook, PACMAN shows the top 25 friend's scores and EG had the top score, and I was just 300 points behind him. For the past 2 hours, I lost count of how many games that I really had, but finally, I BEAT HIM! Ah, that feels good! I am sure he'll try to beat me again! If not in PACMAN, it'll be in other games!

I am the top scorer in PACMAN! YAY!!

Besides all these, I also have tetris in my facebook profile. It helps a lot in helping me to kill my times and keep myself awake especially during those boring meetings. *ssshhhh... *

You might think that I am really silly to be addicted to this. Well, I thought so too. But it's really interesting. If you don't have a facebook account yet, give it a try. But, don't be regret if you get addicted too! And remember to feed my penguin~ if you have a lot of munny and challenge me in PACMAN as well! >.<

Yummy Pan Mee @ Kin Kin

I always have something for pan mee. I missed the Seri Kembangan Auntie's pan mee a lot but I heard the standard has deteriorate after they moved to a new shop. I tried to find nice pan mee in Penang but I couldn't get any. Then, when I read in Yengs' blog on Kin Kin spicy pan mee, I couldn't help but salivated while looking at the pan mee pictures. Yum yum...

When we went to KL the last weekend, Yengs brought ZX, EG and me to the famous pan mee shop.

The famous Restoran Kin Kin Spicy Pan Mee

It took quite long for them to serve us the pan mee as the shop is forever full. But it's definitely worth it to wait. The pan mee is standard - serves with minced port, some vege and ikan bilis. One thing different is, all the pan mee came together with a 70% done egg... For an egg lover like me, it's definitely a BIG Yum yum...

Look at the yolk... Yummm....

So, the way to eat it is to mix the egg with the mee. The mee will then become sticky with eggie taste. It's really delicious. Quote from my penguin~ flufffriend - It's exquisitely delicious, a meal for kings and gods.

You must be wondering why it is so special about the pan mee. Egg is just something that works for me but the other most important attraction to the customers is none the less but the hot burning CHILLI!

I have to admit that I am not that good with spicy food and I put a decent 2 tea spoon of their famous chili into my pan mee and I couldn't eat anymore after eating 5 mouths. And I had to order extra drinks to cool my tongue down.

My pan mee - Yum Yumm...

But, look what our Bravo Yengs did! He put almost 7 spoonful of the chilis into his pan mee!

Look at the amount of chilis in his bowl. This is before he eats.

When he almost finished, he was already sweating like nobody business! Besides, did you realised the lips size has double? :P

While I was driving back from KL to Penang, I couldn't control but keep thinking about the pan mee. The portion of the mee is very small, so most people will take 2 bowls. In our case, 4 of us took 7 bowls of pan mee. Besides, it's not cheap too - RM4.80 per bowl. But then again, it's really something that you should try!

You think the story ends here? Neh... The most interesting part is... After 4 hours when I reached Penang, my stomach started to growl and gave me some hard time as (I think) I am really not that good with chilis. And the best part is, after I came out from the toilet, I told EG that I felt as if my arse is being fed with chilis! It's really ASS BURNING HOT!!!!!

KL folks, esp. my CDC gang, go try it. Check out Yeng's blog for the address. You won't regret! :)
