North Up Food Hunting

~ This blog was migrated from my old site but it's been rewritten ~

It was rather a last minute plan with friends, just because of err... 心血来潮... From KL --> Kampar --> Ipoh --> Taiping (visit only) --> Penang. Oh, Penang was rather extreme last minute add on in the itinerary, mainly because to pick up my "mom in law" who balik pulau on the same weekend.

We started the "hunt" with breakfast at PJ Street porridge. This is the usual place now I have my breakfast before I reach office. RM 5 for a pork porridge can last me till evening, so usually I skip lunch if I have this.

Then headed north to Kampar right after work, the curry chicken in bread. Too tempting, forgot to take photo before we teared off the bread... hehe... Since we have only 3 of us, we can't order another signature "bread" which is Chinese Herb Chicken in bread.

After the filling dinner, continued the journey to Ipoh. After settled down in friend's house, and "met the parents" (wahaha!), we headed out for our supper, the bean sprout chicken rice.

It was a torture to finish the dishes we ordered, I just felt like I am the chicken now~ We've been eating chicken whole night... We had ENO to ease our stomach, and the salty Chinese herb tea too to complete our day 1 mission.

The next day, we headed to Ming Court for dim sum. As expected, darn crowded that we gotta share table in order to enjoy the food. So, I had to use my skill in clubbing to sweet talk 2 aunties to share the table with us. Now I learned that my talk cock skill actually applicable not only to young chicks, but also aunties... hehe :p

With full dumpling in the stomach, we went into Ipoh old town for... ... ...??? Of course the Ipoh Old Town coffee!

After the coffee, we went further north up to the island, Penang. We didn't book hotel, just walk in and got ourselves in Northam All Suite. At night we went out island all the way of 40km to Jawi for seafood... the standard dropped, kinda disappointed but anyhow still not bad for the price we paid. Next trip we shall try Bukit Tambun...

I couldn't recall what was the reason that we did not take photos for meals in Penang... perhaps it's too common to us (at least to me) because I used to travel north up at least twice a year in the past. That made this blog hanging without a good close up... Anyhow, next time will make sure to have a "completeness" when plan to blog on such trips :)

Houston Again~

~ This blog was migrated from my old site but it's been rewritten ~

Again... as title of this blog tells, I was on business trip to the this lifeless boring main land AGAIN! It was a rush to me: I landed home from my Sipadan trip ~1am, and my flight to the Houston was 10am! Further, I have other personal agenda to accomplish before I fly: ONLINE SHOPPING!! This is the only thing I enjoy and hate most to fly there, enjoy because I can get what I want in cheaper price (and can't get it in KL), hate it because it always burns a big hole in my pocket and wallet!! See what I got from there... hehe :p

This time I wasn't alone anymore, though I preferred to travel alone, I was with another 3 colleagues... The trip was joyful anyhow, we've got good meals, good gadget exploration (gadgets that not available in KL yet) and shopping here and there.

In 1 occasion, since this was the first time for one of them to fly to US, he was a little curious on a shop that we passed by every morning when drive to office. Just to kill his curiosity, I dropped by after dinner on one of the nights. This wasn't my first time to visit such shops, but I never took photos, so this time I took some, perhaps to "excite" you to view... hehe~

Pulau Sipadan Part 2

~ This blog was migrated from my old blog but it's been rewritten ~

This blog can be considered a migration from old site, but the content is brand new: the photos were from the old site whereas the text is new. I just wanna share some of the photos I like most from my very first time experience of underwater photography in Pulau Sipadan. Above is the panorama view of Pulau Mabul from Sea Venture (below) and some UW photos. The last 2 were a bit tricky, it's pink and red pygmy sea horse respectively, so challenge your eyes to spot it. Not that difficult though, both are right at the center of the photo.

Oh~ I missed UW!! It's coming 1 year that I have not dived!

Pulau Sipadan Part 1

~ This blog was migrated from my old site ~

This wasn't the 1st time, but it was different from previous trip. we din go to the island on the same day. instead, we stayed at the jetty area, which the resort is similar concept like PD Avilion i.e. water chalet wit "open" bath room... but it is way better than Avilion, at least the water is not milo color...

Anyhow, if u happen to stay thr in the future, b prepared to get out to hv your own bfast... the included bfast is only roti bakar + kopi, which is nice to me but quantity only can cover my throat, stomach still empty...

Dun say i bluff u, talk cock bull shit, we saw manta ray (in case u dunno wat is manta, click here) at jetty, even b4 we dive!!! but we were not excited, instead damn tulan (angry) wit what we saw! look at photos below, taken when out for bfast:

Kanneh, jin yausiu (vulgary~)... those were illegal fishing!! Not 1 manta, but tens of them!!! Our powerful dive instructor was veli upset n would do something (o oledie did something) to report this, she got "connection" to some authority. Just wonder how effective those authority bosses would take action... u'd know la, this is msia, the bulleh land, not anywhr else in the world...

Anyway, it's just the begininng of the trip, so we tend to forget it... let's back to the trip.. we got a warmth welcome by the boss at the resort, we dun even need to carry our bags to the jetty, got a VVVVIP svc tat the boss ride the boat rite in front of the resort to pick us up, thumb up!!

Arrived at the platform ~11+am... n immediately got our chk out dive (o orientation dive) underneath the platform... yoohoo~

This was also the 1st time I took photo underwater, hope to see improvement in 4 days time...
