The day after exam!

On Wednesday, we went for "The Da Vinci Code".
Usually I prefer to watch movie in GSC Hall 2 and 3 because the cinema is big, the screen is big, the sound system is good too.
The show we watched was at 11.15am.. and it was at Hall 2.

About the show.. it was not that good because a lot of things was not emphasized on.
Though I didn't read the book but I know by reading the book, you'll know better about the movie.


I was craving for the mee sua...
So we had one!

Oysters Mee Sua

Then we went to have Yoshinoya... it was on promotion!

Yoshinoya's Beef Bowl

Salmon Bowl

Miso soup!

The rice is good.. Because it wasn't dried.
But the miso soup is a bit salty.

I decided to have home-cooked food for dinner...
So we left for grocery in Tesco.
I love doing grocery there because things there look cleaner and newer.

Stir-fried Siu Pak Choy with Baby Corn

I realised I can't cook siu pak choy like choy sum..
I need to add water so that it's well-cooked.
I don't know how to cook baby corn so I boiled them first before stir-frying them.

Steamed Medium Sized Pomfret

My first time steaming fish..
Hahahah!! Just pour the steamed-fish soy sauce, sesame sauce and a lil bit of white wine.
Also added some ginger slices and onion leaves.

Lemon Chicken

The other day, i tried cooking lemon chicken too with fried chicken.
But this time, I didn't fry the chicken because it's oily and unhealthy.
I heat the wok with oil and add some garlic.. then I put in the chicken...
Stir frying them....
Later I add the lemon sauce with water ....
Cooked till the water is absorbed by the chicken wings and the chicken wings are well-cooked!

Simple and easy for a home-cooked meal!
Try it if you have the time...

It's finger licking good for us, I'm not sure about you!

My Secret Weapons for Exam!

My first paper was over...
I'm not sure if I can pass the exam or not but it was easier than last year paper.

On Monday.. I spend my time with these:

Secreat Weapon 1

Secret Weapon 2

Secreat Weapon 3

I slept at 3am but I didn't have a tight sleep.
I was dreaming about the elements in the subject.
SO scary.
But now it's over and hopefully I don't have to see it again!

Fish & Co

After spending half a day at home on Saturday, went to One Utama for dinner.
At first, we were undecided.
But we were considering between Fish & Co and Chili's.
Finally, we walked in to Fish & Co because we haven't had the platter there.

I was craving for the platter for so so so long dee..
But most of the time we don't eat there or we dine in Manhattan Fish Market.

Wooden coaster!

Special Chilli sauce, tartar sauce and garlic

Yummy yummy!!

Seafood Platter for Two!


The food served was goood.
I was thinking that the fish served is deep fried like fish & chips but it wasn't. I think it was either being grilled or pan-fried.
There were 10 prawns and a generous portion of big-sized calamari.
The calamari was good.. not deep fried too! I love it.
And there was 1/2 dozen of mussels in creamy garlic & lemon butter sauce..
Wow... it was so so so so delicious.
The fries are so "fat" and "thick".
The rice was okay...
With that price... It's definitely a "MUST-EAT" if you are going there with bf/gf/mom/dad or whoever lah.

I think in M.F.M, their flamming platter for two is about 10 bucks cheaper but they only gave 4 prawns and calamari and fish were deep fried and there is no mussels.

So I think I'lll rather pay another 10 dollars for those I love.
But M.F.M's Pacific Baked Dory Fish is nice.

Yeah.. I love fish!!

2 more days

Another 2 more days to the deadline.
It marks the starting point of my struggling-tiring-neverending journey.

He is making me think now...
He asked me lots and lots and lots of questions about the so-near-yet-so far FUTURE.
But he has never asked me if I want the diamond that worth RM 20k or the tote bag I wanted.

I can't think of anything other than exam questions.
I'm thinking of how to show the estimator is unbiased, consistent and efficient.
Prerably everything is a BLUE.
Or I'm thinking of what test to be used when the estimator has problem...
Or I'm thinking of how to overcome these problems.

But why in the world, we don't have the formulas to show that we are unbiased, consistent and efficient.
Why in the world, we don't have any test to test the presence of problem...
Maybe yes... some IQ tests and EQ tests or some bluff-people love tests or some bluff-people personality tests then usually make most of the people fall in the same group by answering a few questions.
Why in the wolrd, we don't have a paradigm of solutions to tell us exactly what to do to overcome the problems....

But in Econometrics, we have plenty...
Or I quote "too many".
Until I dream of it almost every night.

I don't know what to answer...
So I answered him something that he would love to hear or know or maybe he doesn't love.
I just want to have clear-minded time because I'm very very very very worried of exam on tuesday.

Calm down, calm down...
Who knows what is happening to me?
Who knows??
I doubt he knows!

Thursday, May 18, 2006


Damn it...
I've just realised that I can't skip any topics for EE..

I'll leave the topics till weekends.
Meanwhile, I'll be doing PYQ.

Btw, I have the mock paper for MA..
Anybody is interested??

Wednesday, May 17, 2006


Yesterday, I was having lunch at the cafeteria in Wisma E&C.
I was sitting in between this group of people from the MNC named, Shall+Hell...
They were all speaking in mandarin plus I was sitting IN BETWEEN them..
So whatever they talked about, it came into my ears.

At first.. these 3 girls were talking about SPEEDING then where to pay summon.
One(A) of them got a ticket from Polis Diraja...
She doesn't know where to pay for the ticket...
Another one (B) suggested her to pay in Police Station.
A doesn't know which police station to go to....
B suggested her to go to any police station.

LPS thought to herself: If you don't know which police station to go to, then go see if the shopping mall has offered special counter to pay fine ie One Utama.

Then another 2 guys came and sit on my leftside.
The conversation is as follows:-

A: Your hair colour so dark, sure need to dye a few times then only can see the colour one right? My bro was like that leh."
G : No ah.. I tried once... and can see the colour also.
A: Then what happened to your hair now? You dyed it back to black huh?
G: Nolah... Long already so cut it off already.

LPS was laughing to herself and thinking why in the world got such funny conversation one....

One of the girl was talking to another guy, H. I cannot remember if it is the same girl or others.
Assume it's another girl (C)
C: You cut your hair already? Look so different.
H: Yaya.... My wife too.
C: How much you spent?
H: Mine - RM 20. Hers - RM 15.
C: Why is yours so expensive?
H: She cut in the salon that she goes all the time... So they charge her cheaper.
C: Why don't you have your hair cut there too?
H: Don't want lah... All the ladies & aunties there only.
C: You never dye your hair?
H: Don't want lah... I'm going to be father soon. I don't want to be a bad example.

LPS said to herself: DUH??? What does it have to do with your baby?? If you don't get your hair dyed, your baby will think that you are some old -fashioned people.. So dull...


I don't expect people from "Shall+Hell" speaking in mandarin and in this kind of funny topic.
No.. I'm not saying that they must speak serious topic but some not some too funny topic lah.
I almost burst out into laughter when I heard that..
So I ate my lunch very very fast.. trying not to laugh while they are there!

I'm feeling down!

The nearer is to 23rd May...
The more sleepy and tired I am.

I don't know why...
I think it is not due to the 2-day labour work.
But why??

I still got 4-5 chapters to go..
And I must finish them by thursday, so I can start doing the past year questions.

I'm feeling down.
I have so much work to be done.

Wesak Day

Wesak eve, I spent half a day in BUBS for the preparation of oil lamps.
I didn't sleep well the night before so when I reached home, I slept till 7pm..

On Wesak Day itself, I went there around 12pm after brunch!
Then looking around at their Wesak Food Fair.

Wesak Food Fair Plan

Oil lamps

Food fair closed at around 2pm...
Then we started cleaning up the oil lamps at 3pm.
Things were done at 4.20pm..
We broke quite a number of glasses too when we were washing and packing the glasses back into the boxes.

It was a fun day...
And it was the 1st wesak celebration I went to.

Wanted to go to One Utama after that...
But I saw there were damn a lot of cars going in...
So decided to go to The Curve instead of One U.
Luckily the traffice wasn't that bad.
Walked around The Curve... and was trying the Ogawa Massage Chair (because he sent the foot massager back for repair... the thing was not working.. and I was just trying because I hate Ogawa.)

Then went to Ikano...
Walked around and looking for a place for tea+dinner...
Settled down at Uncle Lim's

Nasi Lemak
It wasn't as good as the one that I had in Times Square.
And.. the rice was not properly cooked..
So I demanded for another bowl of rice for substitution.

Roti Bakar

Then we went to Ikea for coffee and currypuffs..
I just love the currypuffs there...

Bought a pair of sandals in Vincci..
Wanted to get another 2 pairs of heels.. but there are no sizes left for me..
So sad!!

I'm on Diet

I'm not sure when I started putting on weight...

Shall go for exercise!!

Dana @ BUBS

Yesterday, I went to BUBS for Dana.
It was the first Dana I ever attended.
And I went alone yesterday because he was not around.
At first, I was afraid because I am new there and I don't really know the rest of the Tai-tai/Si-Lai/Uncles & Aunties!
But since I've committed and I have nothing better to do...
I must go no matter what.

There was a talk at 9am but I can't wake up so early so... I did not attend for the Dhamma Talk by Ven. Dr. K. Sri Dhammananda.
There was a Dana session at 11am.
I brought watermelon because that is just what I am able to prepare for the "safety" of everybody there.

Look...These are the food brought by the members of BUBS.

6 tables of food
Fried Mee-hoon, fried rice, different types of curry chicken, fried loh shi fun, veggie, fried chicken, roast duck, kuih, fruits etc...
I tell you .. If the word “dana” was not mentioned, one would have thought that this is a house-warming party.
Or this is even grander and merrier than a house warming buffet.
Everybody brings something, and everybody gets to eat.
Not bad... All home-cooked food!

Oyster Mee Sua
This is damn good..
As good as the Shih-Lin in One Utama...
This even comes with shark fins..
Done by Sister Sau Ling (I think that's her name)

The devotees serving Chief Reverand

Dining Time

Chief Sangha Nayaka of Malaysia and Singapore: Ven. Dr. K. Sri Dhammananda

This Wesak Day eve, I'll be helping out in the preparation of oil lamps though I'm so busy with my exams preparation.
On Wesak Day itself, I'll be in charge of cleaning up the oil lamps.
I'm just lending my hands for those who need help.

I'm beginning to learn about Buddhism.
Thus I should spend more time understanding and knowing what a real Buddhist is supposed to know.

Thomas Cup Japan 2006 (II)

Everyone knows...
Malaysia Badminton Squad did not qualify for the Thomas Cup Final. They were defeated by Denmark in the semi-finals.

I feel so sad for them.
Our doubles were excellent but not the singles.
I don't blame the 3rd singles player Kuan Beng Hong for not performing well.
In the first place, he was not even expected to play a significant role in the tournament.
He was thrown into the fray, after Wong Choong Hann suffered a serious injury.

Many reasons were given for their failure.
But I was wondering if our 1st and 2nd singles players were over- confident??
Or they are not fit enough to match the Danes?

I don't know.
But we can't blame them for all. Many factors has been attributed for the failure.
We can also not blame it on bad luck only because Wong Choong Hann is injured.

Perhaps, we don't deserve win the Thomas Cup at all!

We shall look forward for Asian Games or World Championship in Madrid later.

China won again and I think they deserve it!!!

Gathering @ HoneyBee, SS2

Bee Yam called me yesterday, asking me to go out today because Lay Sye wanted to meet us up for a gathering.
I was thinking...
Why huh?
She wants to meet us but Bee Yam called ???
She has big anoouncement to make izzit???
Since I have nothing to do, so I promised to go.

And just now..
We met up at Honey Bee Cafe, SS2...
The car looks so cute but it has flat tyres!

I show you the food and beverage.

Drinks Ordered:
MangoTwinkleLittleStar (Bee Yam), Love Letter (Lay Sye), Pink Panther (Ting Ting & BF), Iced Lemon Honey (Myself)
My comment: They don't have much choices.. I looked at the menu for more than 10 mins, then only I decided what to drink. But what I ordered is not in the menu.. Hahahah!
I'm not sure if their ice blended is nice or not.
I hope people drink will leave a comment.

Bee Yam's Ginger Onion Chicken Rice

My Thai Styled Chicken Rice
My comment: Wah.. this is like one of the most 'Does-Not-Taste-Like-Thai-Food' chicken rice that I've eaten. I can only taste HOT and sour. I think I can cook better. Just go get a bottle of Thai Chili Sauce (No the one you see in KFC) and cook with fried chicken will do!

Ting Ting's Waffer

The food = no good.
The environment okay lah...
But when I was eating, we smelled something like 'salted-fish'. I think it's Belacan.
Why you cook that kind of thing and you still let you customers smell that.
Very potong-stim you know...
Talk talk half-way, and you smell something like that.
Bee Yam actually covered her nose with tissue!!

Photo session:

Chi Yng and I

Pretty smiles we have there!!

Me, Chi Yng, Bee Yam, Lay Sye and Ting Ting

Lay Sye and I...
I don't know what goes wrong with the "dot" on my head!

Bee Yam and I...
I must admit that I AM FAT!!!

We had a great time.
We laughed damn loud in the cafe.
We were talking about their work, our exams, our lives, beauty and etc...

Ting Ting wants to have her wedding reception in KL Convention Centre...
But.. Think about the charges for the ballroom..
I think by that time money are all paid for the ballroom, there will be no money left for catering...
So it's better to have some cheap caterer to cook for RM 15/pax...
First class environment and 3rd class food??
Do you want it this way?

I don't want.
I want all done nicely.
I still want a private, warm and fun reception.

But... it's too far away to think about.
Lets concentrate in EXAMS...
We "love" exams!

Lay Sye said she feels like giving up her ACCA...
Wow.. That really scares me..
I'm not even there but she is already giving up.

Will make a decision next year when I finish my course and all that depends on my job.
If I can get a pretty good pay-job but not asking me to obtain a professional degree like that, I don't mind skipping all the professional titles!
Status cannot last forever..
Ya ya.. I know professionals last (maybe not)..
For me, I think professionals need to keep themselves updated.
So if I don't update myself with the relevant stuffs, I better not force myself to obtain the title, unless I don't have to worry about money, so I would spend my free time studying that!

Thursday, May 04, 2006


Finally I am studying...
It is studying..
By this time, people usually doing revision!!
But.. I am only studying, understanding what them..
I don't mind being slow but I must be steady.

And I've just realised CF is a very interesting subject.
But sometimes the theories are too in-depth.
I'm not sure this happens to other courses or not but in my course all the theories are like that.
We learn more in theories than pratical.
I don't know whether all the knowledge gained will be useful in work later or not..
But at right now, all that are important for EXAMS!!!

I went to library at 11am...
I left at 4pm because it was going to rain soon and I don't want to get caught in the traffic jam.
Waited for the feeder bus to main block and once I got up to the car, the rain starts..
Lucky man...
I had productive hours in the library...
I'm happy though it is very tiring and boring.
And now...
I'm still working on the notes.
I want to finish this sub-unit before I go to bed.

Jia you jia you!!

Oh ya!!
Wong Choong Hann will not play for 6 months because he broke his Accilles Tendon.
I'm so sad for him plus he is the captain for the Malaysia Badminton Squad to Thomas Cup Japan 2006.
The 23-year-old Kuan Beng Hong will be playing for 3rd single and Muhd Hafiz will be taking Wong's place for 2nd single.
Hopefully they can still win without Wong.

Get well soon!!!

Thomas Cup Japan 2006

Malaysia beat Korea 3-2 to go to the semifinal...

Lee Chong Wei won at 21-17, 21-14.
Chan Choong Ming & Khoo Kien Keat lost at 18-21, 22-24.
Wong Choong Hann retired with the score of 10-6 because he sprained his ankle.
Choong Tan Fook & Lee Wan Wah won at 21-18, 21-9.
Muhd Hafiz won at 21-17, 21-10.

I'm very sad for Wong Choong Hann...
Hopefully we can still see him play in the semifinal or else Kuan Beng Hong will be playing, izzit??

Yeah yeah...
Malaysia will be meeting Denmark in Semifinal...
Malaysia boleh.. main badminton.

China will be meeting Indonesia in Semifinal...
Good good...
They will eliminate themselves by not eliminating Malaysia.


Please take me away from my bed.
My finals are near and I'm still spending most of the time to sleep.
I love sleeping yet I hate sleeping.

I just woke up not long ago...
Then I realise I have 3 more weeks to my first paper.
Ya.. 3 more weeks sounds a lot but I tell you.. What I have to cover in 3-week-time is the syllabus for one whole year... not those 4-month/semester thingy.
Deep shit!!

Econometrics, my beautiful enemy...
How come I don't love you as much as others?
I have done only 2 chapters.. I think there are at least 6 more chapters for me to go through.
Go through, not reading them word by word, you see!!
I better start now or else I'll go back to sleep again.

Btw, Dana @ BUBS on Sunday, who wants to go?

I Not Stupid 2 小孩不笨 2

I've watched this movie yesterday.
I didn't watch the first one..
But luckily it doesn't link up the story from the first episode.

It's a very touching show for me.
I'm not sure about you.

But it really scares me....
Having kids is never easy especially in the modern world like this, both the parents are working and they don't really have time at home.

Think twice if you don't like taking care of kids.
If you really want to have kids, please make sure you are willing to spend time on them, talking to them etc.

Klang Bak Kut Teh

Yesterday when I woke up at 12 (I know it's late....), I was hungry.
I was thinking of what to eat!
At first I was thinking to have Ampang Yong Tao Foo...
But MRR 2 is closed so I better not to go to Ampang...

Suddenly I have the urge of eating Bak Kut Teh...
Not the BKT near my house...
But the Klang Bak Kut Teh.

He was saying.. it's a bit too far.
So I volunteer myself to drive there.
And we didn't know if there is any shop still serving BKT in the afternoon.
So he called his friend to enquire.
His friend said that nowadays people want to earn more money so shops at a place called Bandar Bukit Tinggi are still open in the afternoon.
Bandar Bukit Tinggi, here we come.

From my house, I took Jln Subang-Sg Buloh then Jalan Batu Tiga then Federal Highway and pay a toll then I reached Klang, Bandar DiRaja!.
Klang is about 30km away from my house which I still consider near.

RM 1 for the toll..

Hotel-in-progress or abandoned project

After that, I drove straight to Bandar Bkt Tinggi...
It's about 6km more from Bkt Raja.
After searching for 10 mins.. We found that there are only 3 shops still serving BKT.
So we just went in to the one that we saw there were 2 tables of customers.

We tried this one...
Restoran Bak Kut Teh Da Zhong
There is another one nearby - Bdr Bkt Tinggi Bak Kut Teh.

We order 1 pot of Dry Bak Kut Teh and 1 pot of Claypot Bak Kut Teh(Soup).
Look at the pictures of the BKT...
I'm sure you want to try it!

Claypot BKT.
They placed 2 big piece of veggie on top of it.

When I removed the veggie..
This is how it looks like..
Looks good, isn't it??

With dried-chillies, okra and onion leaves.

The meat is so soft and tender.

The soup is darker than those I had in Sg Buloh.

Compare and Contrast the pig intestine.

Empty pots I left with....

The bill came to RM 17.20.
Bak Kut Teh is served at Rm 7.60 per pax...
What a funny price!
Here, at Sg Buloh, they are charging RM 6.50- 7.00 per pax.

The BKT served was tasty for me... I'm not sure about you.
The BKT made the travelling worth while...
The after-taste of the BKT was good!

I will definitely go to Klang for BKT again... but I'll try another shop!!
And I want to have seafood when exam is over...
I found the restaurant that I went in Padamaran.

Rumour has it that the proprietors of BKT shops used Panadol (yes, that paracetamol!!) to make their meat soft and tender. They just chucked one row of Panadol while they are cooking the dish. Well, I don't know whether this is true, it could be those urban legends we hear about every now and then.
Then again, it may not be a bad thing after all.
When you have fever, think BKT
When you have a headache, just get some BKT...hahahah
