Belated everything…


Sorry for the lack of updating.. again!
But I have perfect excuse this time. Hehehhee. No thanks to Pingko who gave me the silly “Pingko-flu”!

After the maybe-not-so-surprise birthday party thrown for Eng and Chau, when I was on my way back to Seria, I felt really bad in the car feeling all nausea and dizzy. Errr, can’t say that Vai’s driving skill contributed nothing at all (need to write like that so this lag-1-minute-chabo might not understand this. Hahaha. Evil!) and I lau-sai-ed and vomited the next day (Brunei’s 26th National Day). Couldn’t even straighten up my body and lost $15 in lami. Damn soi.

Went to SSBH yesterday and the first thing the doctor said to me was..

“You have to wash your hand before you eat for 20 – 40 seconds.”

“But I did!”

“Yes. But not long enough.”

To be honest, I was tad insulted by that. Macam I very unhygienic like that…


Here, some photos taken on last Monday.

Engy and Chaugy (One too thin, one too “big bone”)
… we have a habit of adding –gy to names. So, I’m er… Kingy.. sounds like kinky I know.


Eng’s Birthday gift. 

Chau’s “drugs”!

LOL! It was me who wrapped it and wrote those words.
Ubat batuk for the soy sauce, Dadah for the packet of salt and the Syabu/ Heroin is actually a pretty Swatch watch.

This young lady here loves SALTINESS to the max! She eats everything with salt and soy sauce.

Have you ever seen people putting light soy sauce to peanut butter toast?

Sibeh “ham” ah!

Their birthday cards~

Love you all loads my dear Garden Circlings! It is you girls who always give me positive powers and guide me well.

Ending this with Ye’s super cliché quote,
手牵手, 心连心

Eat it with style!


When scoping didn’t help when eating mash potatoes with plenty of chili sauce…

Use a straw!

I tell ya, Bobby has like the quirkiest + noisiest + kiasu-est bunch of colleagues ever!

But, I like them! At least I don’t need to play the role of this quiet girlfriend who nods to everything, blushes at dirty jokes (if you can beat them, join them!) and speaks so soft that everyone has to go “HAH?” twice.

And.. I think I just super-spoiled my image during that lunch. Sorry folks, I’ll behave better next time.. but I’m pretty sure I brought you lots plenty of laughter that day.

Bobby’s Day + Pre-mature Cupid’s Day


Takity talk :
I launched PS3 and was ready to prettify this blog post with heart doodles and quirky notes. But, I ended up staring at the monitor and gave up like 5 seconds later. Sad isn’t it? 4 years down the blogging-road (if there’s such thing) really kill my creativity in photo-enhancing. Blah! Nevermind, I’ll just put some photos and captions (sometimes short stories) to have you all entertained.

… no wonder my stats dropped like poop!

Went to Senja lounge because it was fully booked the last time when we just walked in. The ambience was quite good that it actually made us feel like we’re not in Brunei. People cheering and toasting everywhere and to be honest, I was a bit put off when the waitress showed us our table…

Because there’s only the two of us, we’re put in a corner next to this long long table with about 10 – 15 people and it was quite noisy.

It was pretty dark inside and taking photos with flash on really killed our eyes.

His birthday card.
Cute pop-out ladybug with 26 (reasons why I love him) cards in it.
Got the idea from internet. It’s not original but hey, at least give me credit for completing it!

I really rushed it! Wait till you see his Valentine’s present then you know how much work I did to make this 2 cards / gifts. But I’m really happy with what I produced this year!

Complimentary bread and garlic butter

Baked aubergine with cheese and pepperoni is love!
B$ 6.50

Senja Prawns with blue cheese.
B$ 12.00

Bobby’s Traditional F1 steak. He ordered a smaller portion one.
B$ 20.00

My Spaghetti Napolitane
B$ 14.00

My Valentine’s Day card from Bobby.

I was laughing when I read … “Our Valentine’s Day so FAT”
What the bippity-bop~

He asked why was I laughing and so I questioned him why our v-day so fat. He told me that it’s “Our Valentine’s Day so FAR”.

Hahhahaaaa. Ming-ming written FAT one, bad bad handwriting!


Very cool card. Can extend one year by year starting from 2005.
Reading back our vday celebration, really like jinxed lor.
Mostly spoiled by the restaurant due to late arrival of food. Well, nobody likes grumpy Nonnie when she’s hungry.


And this is what I gave him~

Bet you all cannot guess what is it~~~~~~~

It’s a restaurant menu!

It’s quite thick with all the food I can cook or confident to cook listed for him to order. I don’t really want to show how the inner pages look like because I don’t want those lack-of-creativity-copy-cats-who-copy-ideas-then-don’t-give-credit-to-the-creator to use my idea!



But I’ll show you one page only!

Hahahhahahaa. He signed on the it already!
My rule no.1 is… “The chef is always right!”
And the one is, “Any dissatisfaction, refer to rule no.1”

Oh ya, the agreement page is the only printed page, the rest I drew, colored and wrote everything myself one. I have like pages for beverages, appetizers, noodles, chicken, oink-oink, seafood, pastas, western and desserts. Like real menu can!

And now I’m just waiting for Bobby to make his very first order~

Happenings in Sibu 2010


Only photos and captions in this post.
Oh oh, Happy Chinese New Year to all the Chinesesssss (LOL! I just plural-ised Chinese wtf)!

(Next post will be on Bobby’s bday, maybe?)

New air craft of MASWING. Instead of flight attendants doing the safety demonstration, we just viewed it from the screen which in my opinion, is way better.

(You know sometimes you don’t feel like seeing but having the cabin crew standing there in front of you, you feel malu if you don’t pay attention to them. And, I’d never know where’s the exact location of the life jacket until I saw the video! How handy!)

Land, sea and air.

Paid almost RM1.2k for 3 return tickets (55mins journey) and received glass of apple juice and an awful muffin. Thanks AirAsia, kenapa lu tak ada flight from Miri to Sibu?


Dropped the hand-carry Ebiko and the baby octopus in red sauce (I forgot the name).

There’s a short story behind those food.
I was happily enjoying my meal at Senja lounge and suddenly remembered that my cousin asked to buy from ebiko and the baby octopus and.. it was already like 8.45pm!!! I freaked out and wanted to stop eating and drive to SnoFood just to get me those food liao. Hahahhaa. Kasian kan that guy?

Thank God I have Siew Fong’s number and called her up. Quickly finished up our main courses and tapao-ed the dessert and zoomed to Gadong again. The sign on the door showed “CLOSE” but there’s still shop attendants inside and I just muka tembok-tembok went it. Phew, lucky SF had the shop hours extended just for me to buy. =D


Went to Delta Mall.

Look look! They have like 4 different flavors of takoyaki!
- Spicy Shark ???
- Cheese Sausage ???
- Mushroom Chicken ???
- Prawn flavor ???
- Sotong ???

Weird kan! Mushroom chicken takoyaki!

I have no idea what flavor my cousin bought but it was good though.
Less tepung *cough*than the one in the Mall *cough* more ingredients.     


Sibu, looks like this!

A lot of people asked me how is Sibu like and so here, there’s a photo for you to see. I asked my cousins the population and the area of Sibu and so far no one can answer me. Nevermind, I go ask wikipedia!


Sibu is an inland town, and the capital of Sibu District (229.8 square kilometers) in Sibu Division, Sarawak, east Malaysia. It is located at the confluence of the Rajang and Igan Rivers, some 60 kilometers from the ocean. The population is dominated by Chinese especially the Fuzhou as well as indigenous Melanau, Malay, and Iban. The district population (per year 2009 census) is 264,000.


Mom’s hazel eye!
Jealous!!!!! Why didn’t I inherit those double eye lids and eye color!


Sibu’s famous Kampua… which… I think …. Seria Kolomee still WIN!
Humphhh! It’s my blog and I say Seria Kolomee better then Seria kolomee BETTER!


The man in the middle of the photo damn teruk.
He asked for money (RM5) tables to tables and after a round of asking, he ordered a plate of kampua and ate it.

What the… got hands got legs healthy healthy there beg for money!


Sibu’s famous Diang Miang Ngu from Chop Hing Huong.
Ermm.. it’s in Foochow so maybe it sounds a bit weird.

Sad, no “special” on the day we visited!
(by special, it’s just adding cuttlefish in it)


The little alley where you can find those yummy goodies!


Old school Barber shop



When I saw this old lady selling those “doggy” banks.. it reminded me of this ex-classmate of mine who was so extreme sampai note papers with dog prints she also didn’t want to touch…


Searched high and low for this.


Sibu’s famous ikan masin…
After so many years, my mum still goes back to the same vendor to buy those ikan masin. Not for self-consumption, just to help others buy.

Kasian us okay! When people know we’re going to Sibu for CNY, they started to make a list and asked my mum to buy them this and that. Ikan masin and the 8-zhen herbal packs sampai one big box!





Eng-eng-bo-tai-ji-zho… playing with the hinges there.


I super hate this!!!!
Damn gross when they make soup out of it!


Tipu one.
龟苓膏 (gui ling gao) ≠ Coconut jelly okay!


Kana saman for illegal parking!


*cough* You see nothing


My Yi-zhang’s super tokong phone!
Look damn high tech kan the Nokia 2100 without casing.


My grandma’s hand..
I miss holding her hand and stroking it to keep her warm.
I know she knew it’s me who’s holding her hand….


I prepared this with my cousin!
Now I know how to wrap dumplings and my tamago yaki damn sucessful can! Thick thick one though I used those big ass Chinese wok to fry them.

The End!
