filler entertainment

Yeah just a filler post, have been really busy with my assignments ( the horror of it) and other things, would be doing an update on poker gatherings, spontaneous genting trip, and the durian and curry laksa eating session when I have more time.

Anyway, laugh on.

The Liewlala's were unable to conceive children and decided to use a surrogate father to start their family.

On the day the proxy father was to arrive, Mr. Liewlala kissed his wife goodbye and said, 'Well, I'm off now. The man should be here soon.'
Half an hour later, just by chance, a door-to-door baby photographer happened to ring the doorbell, hoping to make a sale.

'Good morning, Ma'am', he said, 'I've come to...'

'Oh, no need to explain,' Mrs. Liewlala cut in, embarrassed, 'I've been expecting you.'

'Have you really?' said the photographer. 'Well, that's good. Did you know babies are my specialty?'

'Well that's what my husband and I had hoped. Please come in and have a seat'.

After a moment she asked, blushing, 'Well, where do we start?'

'Leave everything to me. I usually try two in the bathtub, one on the couch, and perhaps a couple on the bed. And sometimes the
living room floor is fun. You can really spread out there.'

'Bathtub, living room floor? No wonder it didn't work out for David and me!'

'Well, Ma'am, none of us can guarantee a good one every time. But if we try several different positions and I shoot from six or seven
angles, I'm sure you'll be pleased with the results.'

'My, that's a lot!', gasped Mrs. Liewlala .

'Ma'am, in my line of work a man has to take his time. I'd love to be In and out in five minutes, but I'm sure you'd be disappointed
with that.'

'Don't I know it,' said Mrs. Liewlala quietly

The photographer opened his briefcase and pulled out a portfolio of his baby pictures. 'This was done on the top of a bus,' he said .

'Oh, my word!' Mrs. Liewlala exclaimed, grasping at her throat. 'And these twins turned out exceptionally well - when you consider
their mother was so difficult to work with.'

'She was difficult?' asked Mrs. Liewlala .

'Yes, I'm afraid so. I finally had to take her to the park to get the job done right. People were crowding around four and five feet round us
to get a good look'

'Four and five feet around us?' said Mrs. Liewlala, her eyes wide with amazement.

'Yes', the photographer replied. 'And for more than three hours, too. The mother was constantly squealing and yelling - I could
hardly concentrate, and when darkness approached I had to rush my shots. Finally, when the squirrels began nibbling on my equipment,
I just had to pack it all in.'

Mrs. Liewlala leaned forward. 'Do you mean they actually chewed on your,'

'It's true, Ma'am, yes.. Well, if you're ready, I'll set-up my tripod and we can get to work right away.'


'Oh yes, Ma'am. I need to use a tripod to rest my Canon on. It's much too big to be held in the hand very long.'

Mrs. Liewlala fainted

Okay people, lame names i know, just for the fun of it. Anyway, have a great weekend. Enjoy

edmund's 20th

Just a couple of weeks back, actually Edmund's event was way before my latest post, but anyway, the bunch of us had a great time @ Delicious by Ms Read, at OU.

You see, i suck so bad at remembering peoples' name's but then i think the girl on the left is Sin Dee or something like that lar. Eh Lee Quin, she's your primary school mate yarr, ingat tak, I'm supposed to organize a meeting between her and Quin but still belum jadi lar. Anyway, Fei in the middle and Evie Chicken on the right. You know, those were the old f5 jokes lar.

Old is still gold right, secondary friends, Edmund on the top row. Bottom row, Raech, Me and Aminah, whom i just met that night.

Our table, yeah , i know I'm the diamond among the stones lar. ( P/s:- I really hope the girls aren't reading this, they'll kill me for it, jkjk). This was only ONE OF THE TABLES that night, Edmund had to cycle between 4-5 tables, with about 40 guests that night. Yeah, almost the whole restaurant was booked.

Ed + Dee.

Jing, Danny, Evie, Fei, Raech and Me. Old 5 Jati gang. Good times, good times.

Same old peeps + Ken Chong. Eh, isn't that the Messi Jersey from Chongx?

The entries of the night was fabulous as usual. Delicious always serves up to its reputation.

Evie's melting pot, topped with marshmallows.

This carrot cake that we shared till we finished it was just top class man. Its so fragrant and firm, the cream on top was superb.

The pasta was good too.

Duck fillet pasta, something unique, and it tasted really flavorful.

I had this, Chicken Something-something which was the bomb, especially the chicken drumstick part which was SO JUICY and TENDER, the meat just fell off the bones. Felt like orgasm in my mouth. And who can forget the chunted salted potato bites and asparagus at the base of the chicken, everyone started stealing bites of it man.

Cabonara Pasta. The white cream was as smooth as condensed milk and white chocolate blended together. Alright, it might not taste like that but you get my point right. Oh yeah, did i tell you i sampled the green leaf thingy on top, tasted like plastic alright. I felt really stupid thinking it was indeed just a plastic decor, but apparently its some kind of vege.

The wedges was really "tai dow lan" lor, around 8-9 ringgit for this huge pot which in the end the 6 of us on our table had trouble finishing it.

All in all, it was a great night spent. Happy 20th Bday again Ed!

the road not taken

If you think that attending farewell yamcha's, pub gatherings and loads more is just plain fun, think otherwise. This week has been pretty depressing for me, if you would see how many treasured friends of mine are leaving Malaysia, or at least West Malaysia.

Earlier in the month is was Ah Fai leaving for Sabah, a good pal whom i met in the early days of form 6. First impression of him was a rowdy teenager that you don't wanna mess with, but then as the friendship bond grew stronger, great points about him started shining through strongly. And i hope it will

Then a few days ago it was Jason, leaving for sarawak, and he's only coming back in December. A great hang out, talk cock buddy lost, i would say. Times just fly when you're having fun, don't it.

Then today was Chongx, Patrick and Kevin but then again i told myself life is like that and we just gotta be patient right. Teaching in DJ definately changed not only our lives, and we definately fostered a special bond between us that nobody except us could understand. Teacher-student-teacher secret eh?

Next month would be Ken Hui leaving for US, and Su Lynn which i only managed to meet up one time before she went back to Australia. Not forgetting Wai Yee who would be going back to UK in like Sept, oh but well, at least there's still time left.

Ming Kuan, another teaching buddy who will be leaving for Aussie this Sunday, yes again, another yamcha buddy going back.

There's nothing much that i can do about this, the only this is that my advice to you guys, friendship is invaluable and treasure that till the maximum.

Anyway, updates, here it comes.

Catch up dinner @ Sushi Zanmai with Ken Hui and co.

Decor and location wise Sushi Zanmai @ OU really isn't that impressive, imagine this, it wasn't even a shoplot, it was just an erection of cement, wood and bricks at the empty spot opposite MPH. (Yes, they were that desperate for a place), and it was done up really fast, maximum 3 months i think they used to complete this place, and since it's in the middle of all the shops, anyone can just peep by you when they're walking past.

But nevertheless, the company and catch up really matters. On the extreme left is Callie who is in HELP also, Wai Yee who is back from the UK and Lynn who also just came back from Australia, Perth.

Me and Ken Hui, who is also just back from China after taking a six month mandarin course there. You see, i really wanted to study mandarin badly ( yeah, i know i am going for weekly classes now) but my mandarin still sucks poo. At least Ken Hui converses fluently in mandarin now, chun weiii.

The salmon salad which came first was was quite satisfactory considering the amount of sauce that came with it, the winning point would definately be the fresh salmon on top of it. Really, really fresh.

Jap noodles which i didn't try but according to Wai Yee and Lynn, it was not bad at all. Honestly, this place serves up quite good quality food.

Apart from the main courses that we ordered, which was actually quite good by the way ( we had salmon rice, udon and soba noodles and salad) we ordered these side dishes to nibble on, which was really good. Even better than the main courses i would say. Anyway, the rice inside the Inari was really fresh, soft and fragant.

Simple, yet great. Definately puts Genki or Sushi King out of business.

Callie's baby octopus. From her feedback, it tasted quite ok.

The Dragon Rolls and Soft Shell Crab Rolls are absofuckinglutely the bomb. Damn nice lorr, you seriously can feel the crunch of the crab skin, and the mayo on top was godlike. Try this if you can.

After our meal, we adjourned to Delicious to have dessert, and to do a little catching up.

As usual, their Chocolate Brownie kicks ass.

This cake was a little bit of a letdown tho, it tasted like some pasar malam sponge cake which u can get for Rm1 for one slice.

The mushroom salad which came as a huge portion, the grilled mushrooms on top of it was really nice.

It's just great to catch up with the buddies of mine, FYI it's not easy to meet them aight, i only get to see them like a few times in a year only.

Ken Hui, who was telling us how cool Siesta was to his Brazilian Course mate while in Beijing. Yeah, dream on for siesta to happen in Malaysia.


Just the other day, something seriously cha-dow and omg happened lar, i just returned home after my mandarin class on friday, and it was a friday night. Thinking to myself, why didn't i have anything to do, it just felt kinda off alright.

Naturally, i just bummed out watching TV and went to sleep. The next day when i was on the phone with kevin, he went " Eh Tysern why didn't you show up at my gathering last night, FKK lar"

" We thought you would be USUALLY late, and you would come later lar, we all were waiting for you"


P/s:- I only knew part of it, that there was something going on, on Friday, and when the time came no one called up so my mind must have taken for granted that it was cancelled.

Anyway lesson learnt, next time when you feel like you have something to attend, but just can't recall, check it up, don't just bum-out.

Haha, anyway, have a great week guys alright. See you.

Bak Kut Teh @ Klang Town

Well yeah, another eat-out trip. I really should pay more attention to my health because if you know me well, i eat like there's no tomorrow, down all the high cholesterol stuff and what not because when i am eating, i just don't give a shit about its nutrition content. As long as it tastes good, then so be it, I'll be eating it.

So anyway, the usual bunch of us went for a meal of super sinful Bak Kut Teh, with loads of fat, oil and cholesterol throw into the pot.

Served alongside with the BKT, the yau char kuey was delicious, either on its own, or when its dunked into the BKT soup.

There was, Chid and ATS.

King and Li Chieh

Ty, Jason and Shon. We all woke up at an ungodly hour of 8 in the morning, mind you it was a Sunday just to make sure that out favorite parts of the meat is still available.

As old fashioned as it may sound, the restaurant provides old kettles which keep the water hot, and the tea making is DIY, in this sense you gotta pour the hot water and brew the tea yourself.

Digging into the food.

Already halfway through.

Now, comes the final verdict for the meal. The Bak Kut Teh soup certainly did not disappoint, it was thick, the aroma was pitch perfect and the oommpphhh was definately there. On the other hand, the meat was soft, tender and really juicy. One downside of this BKT style ( the other being the claypot style) is that there was only meat and soup served, and additional orders only include chicken feet and pork intestines. They do not have the extras such as Fu Chuk, Tau Foo Pok, Button Mushrooms and so on. Yeah so a little lacking on the variety part.

Anyway, i'll be doing another review on the claypot style BKT ASAP, so who wants to join me for round 2? Let's go again!

After a heavy meal, (did i tell you i ate until i could feel my heart and stomach bursting open?) we went for some apprently very popular ice kacang in a cup ( something like slurpee, but way better) at Taman Pandamaran in Klang.

Which also serves by the way, really good fried chicken. Direction wise, anything just check it out with Jason, i wasn't paying much attention on the road because i din't drive there.

So anyway, that's my BKT outing, definitely going for another very soon. See you around !
