Park at your own risk........

This photo was taken during a down pour at Billion Shopping Centre,Taman Samudera,Sri Manjung.
The driver was an out stationer who is not familiar with the car park surrounding. The management of this shopping centre provides parking but compromise the safety. There is nothing to stop a car from surging forward if you mistakenly step on the wrong pedal. When will they ever start to prevent this from happening? Majlis Perbandaran Manjung, please do something before some one got hurt.TQ

If you are in my shoe.........

My little boy now is tireless, trying out anything that he could lay hand on. My television remote control, astro decoder, aircon, my car alarm system, etc, etc, etc. The most ‘disastrous’ one that is the alarm clock he ‘adjust’ for his grandma, two hours late to do her business in the market. If I’m not mistaken ,three of the alarm clock ended up as his toys which are not functionable after he drop it on the floor, Excluding the hand phone that his mother sent it to Nokia for repair .Only during his ‘nap-nap’ time, or else there will be no peace in our home. *SIGH*……..Just curious how kindergarten could be managed so professionally, can anyone please! give some advice?

My Hand Phone

These few weeks’ events are really testing my patient. First, my shoe let me down, second my staff taking emergency leave without any good excuses, third my hand phone died out on me and fourth my housemaid of two years is pregnant(Of course the father is NOT me)
I know I’m naughty but …….not as naughty as doing this. As the saying goes
“There Are Honors among Thief”

As my blog title suggests “Out of Desperation, Courage Was Born”.
I take these crises easily and relax. First I bought my self a new phone and secondly sent my maid to her agent and at the meantime I’m meddling with my new phone Samsung U600 Ultra Slim and see how the functions work.

Good PR

When shopping for a pair of shoe this afternoon.My previous pair let me down last night.It cost me RM279.90,just less then six months,so this time I choose another brand,"Larrie".The price is RM149.90 and less 20%=RM119.92,much more cheaper.

The quality looks okay to me,hope it won't let down this time.The sales promoter to my previous shoe offer to send back to their company for repair,I declined,cos it takes roughly two long months to complete the whole process,if done it locally,two days.No doubt their services(PR)are good,that neutralised the disappointment.I bought this pair at the same premises.

Dinner For 2

In Sitiawan,when we went out for dinner we always patronise the restaurant that is near our home,so as to cut down the hassle of travelling.The prices should be reasonable and the seafood must be fresh like the grouper here,steamed 'Teoh Chiew' style.I prefer this style cos the juice of the steam fish,as you can see! Mmmmmm! you can drink it as you're taking soup.
This 'water spinach sambal' is common but the taste this restaurant produced is excellent.
And this is Black Pepper Chicken,half Thai and half 'Hock Chiew' style...I think so...........:D
What ever the styles are................ it's all inside my stomach now!!!
p/s The name of the restaurant...........De Villa,Kampung Cina.

You Buy This Excuse?

Hi guys,do you still remember my staff who mistakenly SMS-ed me the other day?Click here for the post.Today she SMS-ed me again,but this time it is for me(her name is Leya).Let me translate it to English.She said: ''Boss I can't work today,I sprained my hand la''.
So I SMS-ed back,"Go and see a doctor and bring back your MC.''

She said:"I didn't go and see a doctor,just ask my member to massage it,she/he is working at the Spa."On the 28th June,she asked for permission to go back earlier,to open a bank account.On the 29th June,I asked her to do OT,she said she had a dinner appointment.On the 30th June,she got her salary,and today 1st July 2007 ,she SMS-ed me this message.I'm scratching my head.........What will she thinks of,next!

Bak Chang

I visit my mother-in law's this morning,to have breakfast.She insisted that I should try her hand made Hakka's ''Bak Chang".It is not my favourite,in order to 'please' her I was 'forced' to take one.Please don't tell her.She doesn't read my blog.:D:D:D
My in law's "Bak Chang" are famous around town.All the above are pre ordered.No wonder my wife always complain of her tired hand after visiting her mom this few days.
This ''Bak Chang'' that I took as breakfast make me skip lunch.The glutinous rice really slow down my digestion.

On my trip to KL recently,My family and I paid a visit to my elder brother's house.He is an exotic plants collector.

For me ,this type of hobby is a self satisfying past time.

And it's needs quite a lot time and money to maintain it.

From a certain angles it looks like a mini jungle to me,I'm at doubt,does he ever notice it.

For me I'm admiring his new car,the latest Camry............sooooooo chio !!!!
I'm asking myself,when am I going to own one?

Hello,Mr Frog..........Any lucky numbers for this weekend draw?

Chinese Buffet

When I was at Kuala Lumpur the other day I paid a visit to a place they called “The Mother of All Chinese Buffet” (aka economy rice) .The boss of this restaurant Mrs Chong told me that she had been operating this restaurant for the last 30 years. The view of the dishes was spectacular.

My family and I was at KLCC yesterday,200km from home to attend my second son's Asian Scholarship trial test.The trial test was held at the Garden International School,we took this opportunity to visit the world tallest twin tower.

Inside the twin tower,I took this magnificent picture.It was raining.

I smelt something very nice coming out from this restaurant that make my stomach grumbling .

I was too hungry till I forgot to take the pictures of what we took to fill our hungry stomach to show you all readers,only this few pictures.My wife's friends took the trouble of taking a day off, just to joint us for a few hours 'holiday'.It was so nice of them to keep us company.

My eldest son Dick Kay,daughter Doo Nee(pink handbag),Grace(blue shirt),her mum and her niece.We spent nearly half a day inside this twin tower and another half doing our shopping at Low Yat Plaza.It was a fabulous 2 days holiday for us.

Last night, I have this for dinner. It’s called chicken feet snails. Although it looks ugly but when you put inside your mouth…..mmmmmmmm, tastes better than abalone.

I was lucky because this snails are the hot items in their menu. Most of the time it will be sold out in the evening. FYI the restaurant’s owner accept pre order if you called him earlier .Signboard to look for, Villa Restaurant Kampong China.
