Bye bye 307 B.. Hello 370 A

I know the title sounds a little cryptic but there’s nothing secretive about it… If you have been following me in my instagram. I’d officially move to KB last Sunday and bid Seria goodbye. But I know I’ll be a Seria-girl forever in my heart.


Everytime when I need to tell people where I lived, I’ll say, “You know Seria public library? Just opposite it, like literally opposite!”

And usually what I got in return is this face… Confused smile, following by…. “THERE’S A LIBRARY IN SERIA????”


Actually, if you read my blog long enough to see the photos I posted up about my house and the views I had, its really quite simple to find out where I lived… Unless you never know the existence of the library lah….


And now, this is my new room…

I still have 3 boxes (in my room, the living room one not yet!) to unpack and I seriously hate those small ki-lik-ka-lak that cannot be categorized… Oh, and clothing to be folded and stacked nicely… One cabinet to be painted… Ngaleh ku…

Oh, and I hate hate hate, not my new neighbours… but their habits of leaving their shoes lying around at the walkway WITH THEIR SMELLY AND WET SOCKS ON THE FLOOR!

How I know its wet?

Urgh!!!! Not to mention the other neighbour who always took my parking spot. I’m still trying to be nice not to give them a “love note” on their windscreen though..

One thing I love about the new place is definitely the location (albeit not as nice as my Seria one) and the view from my windows… Karang ah I show.

That’s all for now.

No one eats tarap like my boyfriend does

Hello elibadi.

Today’s post is about tarap, my boyfriend’s ultimate favorite food…
(Filler post because I can do this in just 10 minutes.. trying to fulfill my 2012 resolutions of blogging more)


Now, this is TARAP!

It has another name called Marang and I wouldn’t even know if I didn’t googled tarap. And no one actually cares what other name it has because it’s already well-known by the one name in Borneo island, TARAP!

When I was a kid, I used to think that this fruit is named tarap because of it’s erm.. brittleness. I don’t know lah, but it’s a slang for us that any men with hair shorter than 1.5cm will be called talap-tou. You know, tarap-head. 

(And yes, itu cina tidak panai cakap itu “R” sound. Lumah (rumah), Lolex (rolex), Lambutan (rambutan), Lan(something)…. okay, that one really starts with L. Hahahhaahha)

Okay, talk too much. Anyhoos…

The flesh inside.

No skill, or tools needed to open a tarap. The ripe fruit is opened by cutting the rind around, twisting and gently pulling. Actually, no spread them apart can already.

Happy boy.

He was sad that I gave one tarap away to my colleagues and it’s not ripe yet when he came down. So he bought himself two from Miri and terus ate one after lunch! HE FINISHED ONE WHOLE TARAP HIMSELF! I only ate like, maybe 10 biji.

Even after he finished all the arils inside, there were still some flesh stuck at the core and he went on like this!


I went speechless!

Got nice till like that or not oh Bobby Lim?

For the past week

Just a short recap what happened for the past week, which is new year eve to current day.

Went to Miri on 31.12.2011 with mom and auntie at 6am because the myth was “YOU GO MIRI SUPER LONG QUEUE! CANNOT MAKE IT! QUEUE 3 HOURS!”…. And of course, since we’re already there at the borders at 6.15am, WHERE GOT QUEUE! And also, for Bobby and SL who went at 2pm, FussyKelly and KL at 4pm, STILL NO QUEUE!


Craved for ketam for dinner and went to Yu-Ha-Hai for new year eve big feast and waited for an hour… still no food. The restaurant auntie said there’s only 2 chefs in the kitchen and like 20 tables waiting so couldn’t help to serve faster. Even the drinks arrived 45 minutes late!

So in the end, we gave up waiting and when we’re leaving, they said the midin and si-ham were ready. Had those tapau-ed and went to eat lamb chops at gerai instead..

Oh ya, finally popped my *cough* clubbing cherry!

And… “lam” after countdown and went back to hotel at 12.45am..
Very loser-ish I know. Hahhahahahhaa



Moving house in a week’s time.

Been really busy hunting for furniture, curtains and whatnots. Not to mention packing and transporting boxes. Now I’m left with air conditioners, Astro installation, telephone line and Espeed to worry off. Oh, and stove too. And paint the ugly wall also.

And last Thursday, had a last steamboat at my barek with the besties… We are all so going to miss my old place! BWAAAAAAA!!!!!!!

Will organize a moving-out sale soon, but probably after CNY because I don’t think I have the time to label the stuffs. So for those who are interested in checking out what’s for sale, please go to my facebook album. I’ll try to update the album more frequently I promise!
