This the season to be stupid...

First off, MERRY CHRISTMAS to everyone reading this =D

What did I do for Christmas Eve? I had a BBQ with friends.

What did we do?

We barbecued sausages, chicken wings, bacon and fishballs or meatballs...

Then we started getting creative.

It started with baked potatoes... the different ways of cutting it and wrapping it with aluminum foil and adding cheese and butter.

Then we went on to fishes... where I wrapped this fish with some marinade and about a tablespoon of vodka... and tossed it into the BBQ.

That's when I think the vodka fumes got to all of us and we started cooking using vodka...

My most creative creation was fish slices wrapped in an orange peel with orange juice and vodka baked in the foil. It smelled great but there was no taste... but the sauce wasn't bad XD

My friend, Tommy, went a step further...

Have a look for yourselves:

Yes, he tossed vodka on his roasting potatoes to create a La Flamme Potato roasted ala Vodka XD

FYI, that potato was on the grill for almost an hour and even after that burst of flames, it still wasn't cooked..... -____-"


20 more days to go...

A Scaly Encounter

A few days ago I went to One Utama for lunch and just to walk around. Then there was this Reptile Exhibition. It was RM10 but I like to see these kinda things so I went for it.

It was rather small but their flier said it was the biggest in Asia or something like that. I asked the person in charge why was it just a small exhibition when it's supposed to be the biggest (it was just less than 1 floor). Then the person said "It's not the biggest exhibition, it's the biggest SNAKE on exhibition".

You sweat or not? Anyways, already paid so go in lo...

I've totally forgotten the names of the snakes... but I love the quality of the photos taken by my k800i XD

This snake reminded me of Silas from the DaVinci Code...

This snake very "lan yau yeng" on top of the wooden prop like that XD

I felt as if this snake was smiling at me... If you look closely, its as if it's grinning at you...
Maybe its thinking "Oh wow, foooooooooooooooooooooood"

Besides reptiles there were also some birds... nothing special...

Hahahaha... This is such a fat frog XD

Yes, I'm aware that I'm very LAME... but... never mind la...

I've been eating alot since I came back. Mostly UNAGI!!! I'm gonna eat enough unagi to last me for a lifetime before I go back to Perth XD


*******

Can someone tell my TeeRak that I love her? She isn't listening to me...
26 more days until I can see you again... kid teung mak mak...

Unbelievable

Remember my post of my friend's accident?

Well, I found the video of her car on fire in Youtube...




Sure, we might laugh about how lucky she was now... but... never say never...

Another thing that I found rather unbelievable was that I found out my uncle passed away almost 6 months ago. And no one told me until I came back and my grandma told me...

Life really is fragile... I can't even imagine how my grandma feels... seeing my uncle in the hospital undergoing operations and finally ending up in a coma. I don't even want to know... sighz..


On a lighter note, I PASSED all my units :)

I'm officially a Masters holder XD


p.s. I'm missing my Gift so much... Congrats on passing all your units too na, TeeRak ^^

Back in KL!!!

Yes!!!

I'm back in KL and I have been eating non-stop for the past 3 days... First stop was at a mamak to settle my craving for kang kung belacan. But they didn't have any so I settled for my favourite maggi goreng ^^

I've been going to Pavillion everyday since my friend's girlfriend is working there. I must say that the prices in the shops are really plain ridiculous...

Then I saw J Co. Donuts which so many people went to line up for... my friend told me people waited for hours to get donuts... *swt*

But I got mine in 10 minutes because I went when they were closing =D


It's DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Reminds me of Krispy Kremes... There's the Don Mochino (highly recommended), CocoLoco (I think...) and Oreo!!!
And the price is quite reasonable too... a half dozen assorted donuts just RM11.


Then my friend told me to try egg tarts in Pavillion. It was great too!!! The egg is so perfectly creamy and the pastry crust melts in your mouth... *drools*

Best of all, the price is RM1.60.

Well, since I just came back, I keep dividing every price by 3 into Aussie Dollars and I always have this goofy smile on my face XD

A Babi Post

Some of you may remember my post about car number plates that I've encountered in Perth. If you have not, go have a look...

Well, I encountered one a few days ago that made my jaw drop...

And then I started laughing uncontrollably...

Why?

Take a look for yourself...


Yes... I wonder if the poor bloke knows that his manly Holden car has a number plate that translates to "Pig Girl" in Malay... Maybe someone should name their number plate "Babi Betina"...

Taking a chance

I've always wondered why my Dad loved to go into casinos with his friends and stay there until the next morning before returning to the hotel room. By that time, my mom would be furious because he had most probably spent a lot in there.

Now that I'm old enough to set foot into a casino, I can finally understand how my Dad felt. The excitement at the table is really something different. Especially if you're playing Blackjack and the dealer just gave you an Ace. You'd find yourself screaming "PICTURE!!!"

Nowadays people just go to online casino as they are much more convenient. What's not to like? You'll have the excitement of gambling and will not be bothered by busy body people who keep pressuring you to pull another card just so that they can get a better card...

And with the current technology, the cards are totally random, unlike the standard casino where there are people who count cards in order to gain advantage in the game.

Arts or Science?

I read in Dum Dum's blog that she is not sure whether to take Arts or Science when she enters form 4.

I faced the same problem but at least mine was rather clear cut for me because I only had 2 options for my future:

  1. My "dream" was to become a psychologist. So, that placed me in the Science stream.
  2. Because my parents were not likely to agree with the first choice, my backup plan was to get into Science, go to TARC for A-levels and study pharmacy like any other Tom, Dick and Harry...

And so, either way, I ended up in Science.

But I know people who faced problems because they didn't get the luxury of choice. There is the stereotypical thinking where Science stream students are better than Art students. So, most schools will automatically place their best students in Science and the not so smart ones in Art. At least that is what happened in my school.

Basically if your grades weren't good enough, even though you might want to go into Science, you are not allowed to. Biased? Well, that's Malaysian education for you.

And I feel that 15 is an age where they are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too young to decide their future paths. In my opinion, people only manage to really find what they want to do in life when they go into college where there is a whole different level of independence and a certain amount of intelligence and integrity required.

For me, I love art and literature. But because I was in Science stream, I couldn't take those subjects because I already had 9 bloody freaking heavy subjects on my back. But I decided with a few friends (3 to be exact) to go ahead and take the Literature paper on top of our workload. And I managed to get a B by my own revision and discussion with friends. How we survived it, I have no idea.

But looking back now, I wonder how different life could be if I had taken Arts instead of Science... I'd have more brain cells for sure, because they wouldn't have been massacred by the evil evil subject Add Maths. I remember my first Add Maths results... it was only 12 marks? Out of 100. Which brain cell won't die?

I guess what I'm trying to say is that there needs to be more freedom for high school students to choose what they want. But I understand the limitations of the education industry for high schools... So, until Malaysia decides to revamp the whole system, poor lil 15 to 16 year olds have to flip a coin to decide XD

If someone asks for my opinion if they should choose Art or Science, I'd tell them to think about what they wanna do in the future. But they need to understand that going into Science stream would be hell and Arts' workload is not light either. The most important thing is that if there are people bossing you around or telling you what you should do, you really should just tell them to fuck off. It's your life.

I wish more of my juniors had said that to my school teachers... then there wouldn't be so many people who got lost after SPM because they realized that because they were forced to do something they didn't want to do, they just screwed up.

And there wouldn't be a certain arrogant idiot who ended up in psychology studying in the same college as me... GAH... but that is another story XD
