This year, I would like to read more books than last year. I think in my whole life, last year was the year I read the least. I aim to read at least 3 books and above, of any genre. I am even considering to join the book club that my brother’s gf set up here in Penang just to make myself read more and spend less time staring at my phone instead.
Anyway enough of my ramblings. I chose this book “Crazy Rich Asians” to kick start my little ambitious project as I’ve seen it been mentioned couple of times, and obviously the cover and title caught my attention.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book as I can related with the content which refereed to alot of Malaysia/Singapore Chinese cultures and slangs. Also, the main location was set in Singapore, and I definitely can relate with those spider web family tree linkage. The book basically just spells out our culture over here and make it into a book. So the engagement was definitely there , what with the gossipy and critical side of family, how the rich are spending money obscenely, and of course how asians play it up by doing the right networking.
Rambling again. I should stop now. It was a good book and I will pick up another one soon. I have my kindle but never took a liking to it. I still prefer to hold a good book in my hand any time. Abrupt end.
Some photos from my phone. Actually there’s alot more but just abit busy now. Planning driving route for my first roadtrip of the year is just so crazy!!
Home accessories hunting is so tiring! Which tap? Which sink? What mirror size? What’s the height? What’s the length? What type of lights? They all looks the same to me really.. zzz
This photo summarize my Chinese new year pretty well. Meet up, reunion, eat, drink and everyone being generous with their monehh.
This also summarize the aftermath of my CNY -__- Ate too much, too many late nights, “engine” overheat
Also because of too much food, I took Marvel out for a short jog at Gurney Drive
K’s birthday always fall on CNY. Since we both are big fan of korean food recently, and not exactly small eaters, we decide to go all out and had a great time stuffing ourselves with alot of food, chitchatting loudly instead of trying to maintain in a fine dining restaurant.
Always happy when I get to eat my jiggae~~ ^_^ Not too sure who is happier ahhahahaha!!
During CNY holidays, I went to Ernest Zacharevic art exhibition with my cousin Ting and friend, Moy. Trying to be with the “in” crowd and all, you know. -_-
Anyway I felt that everything was drawn beautifully. It’s a great blessing that we live in Penang and our people are so receptive of street arts and mural unlike some other places. However, with good there’s always evil such as unappreciative people who will spoil the art pieces. Isn’t it basic manners to not TOUCH the pieces? I saw a middle-age couple that was taking selfie and touching those painting. Ironically, the lady was standing just beneath the sign “Do not touch the art” with her hand touching it. -__- Worse, they went beyond the barrier touching this cow art piece zzzzz.. But I guess my frowning and staring scared them off a teeny bit..hhahahaha!!
Okay, enough of rant about these brainless people. Lets focus on the good things instead!
Really nice piece. If I have the money and space, I would love to own this. I know nothing about art, but somehow I really like the colors and strokes in this. Probably i just really like anything colorful and “penang-ish”
Lone Shark .. Get it? Get it??
To me the epitome of the exhibition theme. Art may be rubbish to some but Rubbish can be turn into art. That is why I admire creative people, because I am not one. Who would have give a hole in the ground or pothole a second glance prior to this? Now you get so many similar photos popping up in the social media just like this!
Plus, today is K birthday!!
Happy Happy birthday my dear K! Wishing you wealth, health and happiness!!
* I intended to post this up in mid January itself and look at how time flies// It’s already the start of another lunar year. How bad a blogger am I to post outdated stuff and soon no longer felt like posting anything at all. Anyway I will finish this up and if I’m (or you hehehe) I will continue to share all the yummeh food I ate in KL.
Just a collection of yummy food that I’ve consumed in this 1 week stay in KL in no particular order. Been eating out almost every day, striking out those places that has been on my list for far too long.
I knew I had too much when I felt full all the time!! And feeling chubbier than before.
#1 Roti Valentine – Introduced by Teong as supper option when i picked the boys up at KL Sentral. What’s so special about it? Apparently, they serve the BEST roti canai in KL.. hmm.. That’s a huge title to live up to.
Here, we have the Roti Telor which was good!! Followed by mee goreng (mediocre that I’ve actually forgotten the taste by now) and the bottom is Roti Valentine. That consist of onion, sardine and some chilli. It’s really not bad according to the boys but due to the ingredients, I dont quite like it.
Stor No. 1, Jalan Semarak, Opposite Menara Celcom,
#2 Needs not much of introduction. MyBurgerLab at Seapark. This was my 3rd attempt (sold out when arrived at 730pm -_-) in trying to taste it, and after being stuck in a horrible jam of an hour from Mt Kiara to Seapark, I arrived at 630pm (super kiasu) being able to find myself a nice seat by the window.
I had the Beautiful Mess and I think my friend had Swisstake. Photo below are only my burger and I really do love it!! We also ordered the Portabello fries as side and I found it so-so.
#3 S.Wine at Publika.
I think by now I’ve tried almost everything in Publika. S.Wine is a family favorite we dont mind to revisit it for some porky goodness. Yumm! The pork chops and meatball spaghetti.. Love it! Love it!!
I have been here a couple of times when I was still in studying in Setapak area. Ever since I worked in KL, Jalan Alor just doesn’t seem to be a place I will hang out just due to the fact its just so touristy and exorbitant prices.
However, last Saturday after watching Leessang showcase in Kenanga, we just figured that usually foreign artist will usually drop by famous touristy place for supper so we figured Jalan Alor would be ideal.. Hence we stalk Gary all the way here…hehe.. And since we were hungry, might as well have them as well.
Undoubtedly, the chicken wings was amazing!! But it’s just too expensive. Just the 3 of us, chicken wings, a small plate of fried rice, satay and a piece of fish for RM85 -_____-
like seriously? I probably wont visit them again until I forget about this incident.
