Little Guy, Big Kitchen

A Little Guy Woking in His Big Kitchen

Home Sweet Bungalow

Yesterday, me and family went to my home sweet bangalow my parent’s bungalow which is still yet to be furnished. It was like an hour drive! Lucky it was my sis who drive. lolx. It was fun though esp with mum doing most of the talking and yelling when there’s cows crossing the road. Cow Cow! Lolx. Just kidding. So, I was of course snapping pictures as it was my first time going to a town like this!

This is the Sg. Pelek town. Gosh, what a town eh. I love town like this. Ah, good old days. Quiet and serene.

Restaurant Hong Seng Bay
We stop by at this famous Restaurant Hong Seng Bay for lunch. It’s near the beach! Wow… So here’s some pics taken from left to right.

This is the front view and closeup view.

The best view is of course the beach which is just beside. Too bad it was on low tide.

Did you notice the boat below?

We had these for lunch. Ah, so appetising. It came in order as below. The crab was last as it has to crawl all the way from the beach. lolx

We also went to buy some pau’s from this famous shop. I went into their Kitchen! Without even being caught! lolx

So, finally we are at the house.

This is the frontal part and I’ve used panorama to stitched up. Take sometime to load as it’s a big pic.

Not far far away was this lake.

Stardate : 9th July 2006

Aha, 3rd post for my Stardate. This is for my personal record.

In the morning today, I was helping my long time collegemate to settle some matters for his friend. He asked me to follow him to go to Loke Yew to buy external USB hardisk and cables. I say, what? Where got Loke Yew sell those stuff gar, I asked him back. I know prostitutes got plenty lar. Kakaka… Ermmm… gals, me never call or engage prostitutes ok. I’m a good boy. lolz. But I admit I’m noti. Then he said it was Low Yatt. *sweat So we went there and he got his stuffs. He pays with cash. Whoa. Rich guy. Yar, he’s rich alrite. As he was getting the cables to go to Bandar Puteri, so I asked him not to fetch me back. I wouldn’t want him to hassle.

So, off I go to Sg Wang. There’s an iFeel show. 12 pretty young gals. They’re below 20. Oh dear… They had also fashion show and 3 Singers sponsored by Digi.

Then I was also hunting for a digital camera for sometime at Sg. Wang. My choice was Fujifilm F30 and Exilim EX-Z1000. Low Yatt was selling at RM1200 with 16MB ram. Many shops don’t sell F30 as service was reported bad plus with 10 Megapixel,they claimed it’s is hard to sell. Z1000 cost above RM1.6. Too costly for me. Panasonic Tz5 latest model has almost no features. So I asked my staff who’s pro in DSLR camera. Panasonic nite captures is blurry. Nikon is good. So I went back to that shop at Low Yatt and asked further.

So I finally got Silver color Nikon Coolpix P1. 8 Megaixel. 3.5 Optical Zoom. Free mini tripod. I add RM20 for a 5 feet. 256 MB Ram. Free 3 bags. Wow… The sales guy was very nice. Cost me RM1400. Ther’re many exceptional features in this camera what most don’t have. I can crop pictures and save as another pic. I can record voice and emailed it with the pic. Motion capture was smooth. 256MB can record 0.5 hr. I love the many features esp the panorama. It’s lightweight and I can simply slot into my pant’s pocket. I must say that pictures taken without tripod is blurry.

So before I got my camera, from Sg Wang I went to Berjaya Times Square. Had my dinner at 10th floor. Quite a big space but not much stalls.Then I went to 6th floor Arcade Center. There I noticed 3 gals and 3 guys. All below 15. They’re playing the Stomp Me 3rd Dancing Floor. Wow, they danced marverlously. I really admire them. My heart was all out for them. Whille one was dancing, the others would follow the style. Such amusement. Such good synchronisation. The guys danced better after all. All perfect combos. The japanese music was hot. There was this guy who danced without even watching the screen and the way he danced was more lively with hands touching the floor buttons.

“The above picture was the tripod taken using the camera. Click on it to full view. Quite clear but not sharp enuf as I may shaking. The tripod when fully extended, it’s 5 feet tall”.

Just like breakdancing dude. He had great reflexes. A great potential young guy. Young energetic ppl eh. I stayed there watching for like 2 hrs as I waited for them taking turns to dance and sometimes 2 of them danced together.

The picture above was panorama. Click it to view full. May take a while to load as it’s big. Combined 3 captured shots into 1. The camera captured the lightning quite nice. Canon Powershot did it lousy for nite time except for day shots.

Then I noticed another machine that you can play dancing using your hands. There was 1 gal and 2 guys. Only 1 was allowed inside the circular machine but the other 2 was playing along outside. Again, they were below 15. Again, their synchronised hand dancing and leg movements was really marvelous. Gheez, I felt so old. I really missed playing those when I was young. I did played a lot of arcades back then as I visit them often. I watched them for about half hour. I had really great time there. I felt happy watching them dancing so lively. These youngster are really Lala girls and boys. Funny clothings with earrings and baggy pants. I wished I had my camera then. I’ll try more options and post here.

Stardate : 8th July 2006

This is the 2nd time I’ve stardated the first entry on 13th June. So, this will be some roundups for the month of June and July. I should have done weekly updates but as this blog was only started kicking it’s storm like a hurricane, it’s unstoppable. :lolz It’ll be a weekly update, here onwards. So here goes.

Month : June 2006

Hmm… where shall I start. Lemme do a total recall. Ok. Ah yes, I was starting to kickstart this blog to eternity. It’s been over 118 posts to be exact and mostly are recipes. I’ve spent quite an amount of time capturing images and keying in recipes. I had also made requests to other bloggers for maintaining a Dinig Out experience and also their Recipes. The results was encouraging as we shared common cooking traits. We learned through each other as well. A whole new experience to me actually. There’re so much more to be done.

Most of my Recipes are Chinese and Italian. I like Italian. I catch up fast on Chinese cuisines as my mum is Penang Hokkien and stayed in Ipoh for sometime. My dad was Melaka Hakka but stayed in Seremban for sometime too. Talk abt 2 far away distances eh. I wonder my wife is where. Lolz. I hope she can cook wonders.*Hehe Too bad I’m still single and in my prime now. Gheez… I hate being single. So, ahem… I like curry but not too Indian spicy. Soups are my favourites. I love baking too. Time to get a microwave.

My CTO boss has resigned. Thank god. lolz. I’m bad huh. Finally, we have him off our backs. He doesn’t manage the 3 of us as what good managers do. Most manager aren’t good anyway that I’ve come across on my entire working years. I didn’t attend his farewell but just bought him a secret recipe cake. Let by gones be gone. He’s gone for good. *hiak hiak. Noti me.

The next helm was taken over by the Software Director. Yar, you hear that. Surprise! When he’s in good mood, he’s a nice guy. I do have good rapport working with him. Hence, no worries.

My staff resigns. After much coerce, he has made his choice. He didn’t made a good choice. A little extra pay difference and same benefits. He was a hardworking and independent staff who I can rely on. I had 2 staffs under my wing. Of the 2, it has to be him to resign. I can’t convinced him further as there was other restrictions in the company that limits own career advancements. I’m looking elsewhere too. Then I’ll go for MBA and a new Sentra or Honda Civic car. Never a proton again.

Speaking back, my software director was quite kind but not our bigger boss. We had to assign one staff down to Singapore and the initial stay was 3 days. It was a no stay after his decision. It’s a rest day for my staff and he’s required to work. It’s all too rush to get there by bus and return back to the last bus at 6pm. I’m too nice perhaps. To me, irregardless of whatever company policies, it’s a dead policy. Infuriated, I had requested a change of plan for my staff to stay 1 day. Finally, things got done and everyone is happy except the big guy up there. My staffs and us weren’t actually happy about the hoo-haa. He was cutting back on our costs while he was on very often 1 week company expenses overseas with no sales being brought back. The accounts dept wasn’t happy either. I had good rapport with my staffs and I’m happy about that. To earn people’s respect wasn’t easier. No one respects that big guy up there.

As for friends, well… I’ve lost a friend already. He’s been dating. Kakaka… Busy guy la. We’ve seldom kept in touched already. Distance grew further. Another guy I’ve made friend with, seemed have some personal problems. I do care about friends. But if he doesn’t wants to, all I can do was sms him. No returns from him. Hmm.. I’ll just let him be.

Many friends had misunderstood me. The month of June was a little turmoil for me. I’ve placed a lot of emphasis on friendship as our lives revolves around them. Finally on the final weeks of June, I’ve came to realised that I can no longer get so attached to it. I had to let go and I did let go quite easily as I’m a spiritual learner. The feeling is good. Another good leason learned. I wonder why I took so long. 🙂

Anyway besides friends, thank god, work was a brief. Family problems weren’t much. I had my good time shopping and cooking. Learned to make some Japanese sushi foods. Yummylicious. Seen a few good shows. Bought an expensive Toilette and many clothes. My 2 wardrobes are all packed now. Life is good. It will be better if my lady is there. lolz.

Vacation is next! Actually it was suppose to be today where I want to go to East coast but my mum was sick. Hence, it was postponed. After my 2 staffs went together to HK, I’ll be off for 4 days 3 nite vacation at Perhentian Island.

My new apartment is ready soon. Yeah! End of this year I hope. 3 bedrooms. 1200 square foot. Got my own parking space. Finally my own living space. Missing of a lady actually. *Hehe

So, what will happen next? Stay tuned. Have a nice weekend to you. Thank you for reading a long post.
