Saturday Morning

Bet I slept too early yesterday. aLL the clock in the room was spoiled I think I get on bed before 1am. Thus when I open my eyes this "Morning" which is a very stranger word to me lately. By the way it is all the fault of Rachel's alarm, poor OL that have to go to work on Saturday, get a life! Man. Well the time then was 7 something.

I keep rolling on the bed, hoping I can get back to some sweet dream but No. I am not a sleeping person as you look in to my eye,
you will understand all. I don't like to sleep and I can't sleep too long. That is not my major.

So I wake up and make this early post. Found Jasmine finally update something. Anyway just want to let her know that I still doing thing everyday that remind me of her. Gwen had made some Jasmine chestnut desert. I drank Jasmine green tea almost everyday. I have a cup of Jasmine soak in waster beside me. Dakara, you are always on my mind and never gonna be lonely for the rest of your life.

Hey people, mainly to freelancer like most of the varsities, thats what we do. Have you notice that sometimes, once you get a job you will like transform into a magnet. This is what code by Mr. SLim- suddenly we become a JOB MAGNET. Wow, that was cool...

Got my first interpreting job coming up. Looking forward to it. Hope I won't flunk it in the end. Thanks for Mervin and Hanyu.

My Fine Dining Experiences

My fine dining experiences with Mr. Vincent Kok. He should get some credit from me.

The last time I came back to KL, he brought us to Alexis in Great Eastern Mall for tea-High Tea.
Alexis is a famous bistro in Klang Valley. They have some other outlet in Bangsar, Garden, and few more.

We ordered the =Tiramisu=, which is very soft the texture and the topping was very nutty walnut and sweet crispy caramel layer. I was never a friend of caramel (I don't eat cloud 9) but this creek crack of caramel was totally different. What I like the most was the serving was it actually come with some BERRY jam, either it was strawberry or raspberry jam, this I would say divine. Have you ever have this combination? Cake with jam. By the way, it might not be recognize, but I do not know what to call it. Let it be the divine raspberry jam. Imagining you are Remy in Ratatouille. Cheese and Grapes...close your eyes...ermm hmmm...

There we tried another piece of chocolate fudge ka, can't really remember, it was months ago. However I can still recall that it was serve warm. Would be a good choice for the babes in town.
Since I was preparing my Sarawak working and travel trip, I ask for a Sarawak Laksa. When I was half way to finish it. I felt weired. Don't worry, it was not about the food. I then realise, this is not Sarawak Laksa to me, it was Curry. The KayeLL people just like to call every thing laksa. Anyway, it was one big bowl of Curry.

I wish to go there again someday to enjoy the Jazz performance.

It was the first experience.

Today we decided to have our late dinner at CPK, Suria KLCC. California Pizza Kitchen. I wish I am a photo blogger, but I still don't have my own camera yet.

By the way, there are four of us, we only order 1 appetizer, 1 pizza, 1 pasta. That was very fulfilling, perhaps, there are mainly me and Chi Kuan who play the eating part. The other two was not very helpful.

Mr. Vincent order the appetizer, thus I do not know the name of it. I found this in the US CPK's site. We probably have this

Herb-Onion Focaccia with Checca

Italian-style herb-onion pizza bread hearth baked and served with a fresh combination of Roma tomatoes, basil, garlic, and extra-virgin olive oil.

OR something similar, by the way, I am quite sure we have something with the describe Checca. I like it witht he tomato cube, it taste Iranian. Heard it was something middle east dish too. Make sense then.

We order the Mushroom Pepperoni Sausage pizza-Fresh mushrooms, pepperoni, sweet Italian sausage, Mozzarella cheese and our tomato sauce. While for pasta we made it Marsala Marinara-that was another full bowl of mushroom too. I like that.

The shrimp was so fresh, as someone indeed spilled it out. Anyway bravo the big button mushroom, guess I was influence by the little Iranian evil- Mushroom Monster. I started discover that, I actually like button mushroom too.

The serving is big enough. At first I doubt that why the other are not ordering. Then I realize that he was right, we can't finish all that. Lemonade was good. Cranberry Juice makes someone happy.

One more TiMe, One more Chance.

これ以上何を失えば 心は許されるの
どれ程の痛みならば もういちど君に会える
One more time
 季節よ うつろわないで
One more time
 ふざけあった 時間よ

くいちがう時はいつも 僕が先に折れたね
わがままな性格が なおさら愛しくさせた
One more chance
One more chance

いつでも捜しているよ どっかに君の姿を
向かいのホーム 路地裏の窓
願いはもしも叶うなら 今すぐ君のもとへ
できないことは もう何もない

寂しさ紛らすだけなら 誰でもいいはずなのに
星が落ちそうな夜だから 自分をいつわれない
One more time
 季節よ うつろわないで
One more time

いつでも捜しているよ どっかに君の姿を
交差点でも 夢の中でも
奇跡がもしも起こるなら 今すぐ君に見せたい
新しい朝 これからの僕


いつでも捜しているよ どっかに君の姿を
明け方の街 桜木町で
願いがもしも叶うなら 今すぐ君のもとへ
できないことは もう何もない

いつでも捜しているよ どっかに君の破片を
旅先の店 新聞の隅

奇跡がもしも起こるなら 今すぐ君に見せたい
新しい朝 これからの僕

いつでも捜してしまう どっかに君の笑顔を
急行待ちの 踏切あたり
命が繰り返すならば 何度も君のもとへ
欲しいものなど もう何もない

English Translation

If I lose any more than this, will my heart be forgiven
How much pain before I can see you again
One more time, please don't change the season
One more time to the time when we fool around
When our path cross each other, I am always the first to turn
Making me indulge more in my selfish way
One more chance tripped by memories
One more chance we cannot choose our next place
I am always searching somewhere for you
Opposite of the house, the other side of the alley's window
Even though I know you won't be here
If my wish is to be granted, please bring me to you right now
Betting and embracing everything 
To show you there's nothing else I can do
Anybody should be fine if it was just to ease loneliness
Because the stars in the night sky seems like falling, I cant lie to myself
One more time, please don't change the season
One more time to the time when we fool around
I am always searching somewhere for you
Even at the intersection and dream
Even though I know you won't be here
If miracle was to happen, I want to show it to you right now
A new morning, myself 
and the "I love you" which I couldn't say

Summer's memory is revolving
The sudden disappearance of heart beat
I am always searching somewhere for you
At dawn's town, At Sakuragi street
Even though I know you won't come here
If my wish is to be granted, please bring me to you right now
Betting and embracing everything
I am always searching somewhere for your fragment
At the destination's shop, At the corner of the newspaper
Even though I know you won't be there
If miracle was to happen, I want to show it to you right now
A new morning, myself 
And the "I love you" which I couldn't say

I always end up looking somewhere for your smile
At the railway crossing of the fast pace town
Even though I know you won't be here
If life can be repeated, I'll go to you many times over
There's nothing else that I want
Nothing else is more important than you

One more time, One more chance

I like Sotte Bosse very much, so I was browsing randomly on youtube and I found this good piece. Its from an anime. It looks very beautiful, guess I am gonna grab them soon. Hope you all like the song too.
Link here.

After Battle

I can't recall the last time I am being so sleepy up to an extend I was actually sleeping in KFC.

It should all start from the first night I reached Summit Hotel for the Jom Heboh, Batu Kawan. It was on Friday, right after my last paper of Sociolinguistics, I was starving since I'd extract all my brain juice to throw out some letters on that sheets. So I then I have to walk up to U-heights to meet my driver roommate rEis as if she drive in its gonna be a great congestion here. There I gain more hungriness. Finally I hop up the car and we were both craving for food already, so we change our first destination to some food outlet, then we came to E-Gate, and had our Subway sandwiches. By the way, we have been ordering delivery dinner for 2 days in a row.

So then I carried my 25kg 3 bags, one with all books to study for my JLPT this 7th Dec, one with my clothing, one with lum lum sum sum and laptop, none with MJ the Somoan+NZ baby girl or the rabits from East Osaka, but I am pretty sure it was as heavy as that suitcase. I took the ferry to cross over to the mainland and ride a bus to BM Plaza. I was the first to reach the hotel, pity the rest who'd to work at the site.

I checked in to my room, showered and slept for awhile, hehe. Some knock on my door, they'd arrived. We went for a drink at a mamak nearby, came back to the room, chatting and we all slept around 3 ka. The fact was my bedmate can't really fall asleep, so did I.

We met at the cafe at 7am. Work and came back around 10:30pm, in Japanese they say, おかげさまで=托福=thanks to xx. It was earlier than I expected. Me and Chai Chui had some good time teasing Shi Ying and her Choc Milk. We ordered a Hawaian Chicken Regular, which doesn't seems very sufficient for 4 of us. Anyway we were good. Fell asleep around 2, thought I can get up. At least some on can. The assemble time was 7am for breakfast, and bus leaving at 7:30am.

7:20am Simon called. Shit, I want to eat breakfast. Can't believe he is the one who wake me up, as I'd been worry that he'll not be able to get up on time since he went out late the night before. Shame on me.

Well, Sunday the final day. I don't know why, everybody think I am not playing any game. Hmm...I did and it was as same as the previous all. Bumped out done finally at 10:30pm or later. The seafood feast it worth a little. We all then had 10 min each to shower and meet at the lobby at 1:30am to leave Penang.

I was the first to rush in to the both room and get myself done, so I still on time to have someone's promise implement. We went for a quick drink. I am good. Guess I did walking on straight line on my way back to hotel.

Everyone, I bet sleep like pig on the bus. Uncle David was driving fast, we reach Kelana Jaya Station at 6 something. Thanks for William the birthday sick boy, practicing his gentlemanliness. Carried my all books bag all the way till he left the lrt at Pandan Jaya. It was drizzling went I reach Cempaka, like usual I rather spend more than waiting for the real fucking bus to move it ass. I took a cab home. The uncle Taxi

Thought I can get some rest, but I am not. Breakfast with mum and sisters. Preparing another Butter Milk Chicken for lunch before accompany my little sister to go for interview in some place in Salak South.

We took a cab to the lrt st. then transfer line to Salak South. From there we suppose to take a cab to the interview place. There we met a lot of young (for me) boys and girls heading to the same place. We eventually bump in to one guy and sat in a same cab with him. By the way I met someone I work with before in the funny warehouse. But I can't dig his name out of my memory. Maybe something Hoe.

Well, she went up for interview or probably briefing. I find cooler place, planing to read while waiting. I then walk in to KFC, ordered an Ice Milo, walk up to the first floor. Settle down, lie on the table. I wish I did not snore. I was terribly sleepy.

I guess I sleep for quite some time there. Then we return home. At night I was studying on a bed for some times, then I lay down, I close my eyes, some one wake me up, I told her I am not sleepy, wake me up at 11pm. By the time I wake up it was 10:45am the next day.

It was Tuesday aLready. Good Morning sunshine.

Happy belated birthday to William and Eddy. Both was late, but all it counts is the sincerity's, wasn't it.

Guess I spent the whole night writing this piece. and I should get on bed now.
Good Night Starshine...

我开在网上记录文字,始于~DeN & Her DaY~
2005年的某一天, 那段时期正在等着进大学,在诊所打工. 如今已有两三个年头了. 岁月流逝, 断断续续,有的没的, 点点滴滴.
有一段日子,我记很多蓝色的事情, 后来决定报喜不报忧. 重读的时候,果然看出来了。有写空白的年日,是因为不想回顾,想逃避,所以不敢记下来。

Uncle George

Uncle George is one of my mum's cousin brother, whom they grew up together i guess. He was migrated to New Zealand the year I was born, so I never met him before. I heard of him a lot from my mum, his son and so on. He did came back to visit mum and us, 10 years ago to SOON SOON the bah kut teh cum coffee shop cum restaurant we used to have there then, I can't remember why on earth I was not there. So I like miss the golden chance in 10 years. After that visit, Rachel did have some mail contacting with Uncle George's son, Jack, whom he now called JT. (like JT. my friend in Ohio, I miss that kid)

Since I recently fond of knowing more about New Zealand, I figure that I have an uncle there. So as I found Jaslyn Tan's (another one of my many cousin sisters who is now in Australia) Facebook, I accidentaly or shall I say detective-fully, success to find a suspected Tan's family dude. Which is pretty good looking. So I send him a message like...wait let me copy it down here
October 5 at 3:17am
It might sound weired a little, but I wonder will u be my cousin...
Are u Uncle George's son?
October 5 at 7:00pm
hihi yes im george tan's son ?

So we kinda 相认 but he seems a little cool, at the end he said he is not so sure about family connection. Poor him. I wonder if he know Chinese. He did tell uncle George about our message, apparently Uncle George can't remember my dad's surname. That he denied me. One month later Uncle George added me in his FaceBook. He wrote me walls. I told him I never met him before, but he insist that 10 years ago he saw me in the bah kut teh shop. But sorry, I wasn't there. He then write me a message which let me know more about him. He is one funny uncle. This is so cool, like you meet a distant relative or a relative from far land that you never meet before, its interesting, isn't it.

His message for me in FB:

I wanted to write something

I polished my nail, very bad skill. I have to admit that I am fat and I am not good in grooming my self. So I like to have red nails. But not the one I am wearing on now, I like something like scarlet, bloody red on my lovely finger. Its really dirty now, you know we need time to brush up skills too pa.

I will be cooking butter milk chicken again, this time to love feast my long lost friend, Kok Loon. It had been some time since we last hang out. He ask me out for lunch, he said he has no plan, may be we should go to some place that we never go before. I was running out of cash to try new stuff. So I offered him to try my new dish.

I cooked that on Monday to Reis and Tzyy Yun already. and they like the sauce. but one thing its very very fatening. Which is probably doing good for my beloved guest tomorrow, he who had suffered from underweight for half or his whole life. He needs some fat.

Butter Milk Chicken 奶油鸡 was invented by my grandma, she ate something similar in the restaurant once, ONLY. She came home and innovated, adapt it from pork to chicken. Just to share the simple recipe.

You need some
  • wing- cut into wing and small drumstick ( faham x)
  • drumstick- 1 cut into 3 pieces.
  • butter- the whole block
  • Ideal Milk-Malaysian will know that
  • Small chili-cut into small small pieces
  • curry leaves-for fragrant
  • some seasoning
Steps are...

  1. Cleans the chicken and season it with salt, thick soy sauce, soy sauce, and sugar. (haha, I have no measurement)
  2. Season it for a while or longer if you have time. Deep fry the chicken until you notice the skin get like golden.
  3. Drain the fried chicken, set it a side. Now prepare for the sauce.
  4. Melt the butter (as much as you think is appropriate with the quantity of your chicken) on the wok.
  5. Add in the small chili and curry leaves, also appropriate amount. Fry for a moment.
  6. Now add the Ideal milk. The sauce will become light brown. Pour in the oil drained chicken. (important to drain it)
  7. Cook until the sauce get thick, add some taste, sugar or salt or soy souce according to own likeness.
  8. Cook until the sauce get as thick as you like than its done.
Wow!!! Can't believe it, my first recipe writing.
