Moving, POTC and Zang Toi...


Its me again... You guys probably think I'm nuts coz I kept complaining that I have lots to do but I'm still sitting here blogging. Well, I need time off from all those work right? Or else I think I might lose my mind. Well, at least I cut down on viwawa today. Hehehehehe~

I have some sorta good news. I'll be moving away from MC next semester. *yayness!!!* I can move away from "India" now. Wheeeeee~ (For those who didn't already know, the place I live in now, better known as MC, is filled with Indians.)

Anyways, I will be moving to University Tower (UT), which is just across MC and maybe a kilometre away. But that kilometre away makes lots of difference. UT was much, much, much better compared to MC. How good it is? I will tell you later in other post lah... Coz this post is not to talk about that.

What to write in this post, actually I also don't know. That shows in the lack of creativity in the title. Hahahaahhah~

I don't know how many Thursdays ago, Li Shan told us that her brother will be going back to Singapore and she'll have to fetch him to the bus station. So she asked Esther and I whether we wanna go shopping at Times Square and Sungei Wang or not. Being shopaholics, both of us straight-away agreed.

Li Shan's dad had just returned from er... I don't know where... hehe~ Sorry Li Shan... I forgot. And he brought back lots of gifts. And you can see all the things that he brought back in this post. *clickety-click* I wish my dad would bring back gifts for me from...well, anywhere pun boleh lah... All he does was take my snacks and food away from me. (I want my tam-tam back!!!! >_)

Anyways, of all the gifts I was deeply fascinated by the Pirates of Carribean mega blocks....which was on her living room table when I was there the other day.

For those who don't know a shit about me, I love POTC (Pirates of the Carribean). Mostly because I love Johnny Depp. Seeing the mega blocks was like... I don't know... I just felt extremely excited and happy seeing it.

I was fascinated by the details of these mega blocks. Especially the characters of the movie. Although they are all mini in size but I could recognize who was who and it scarily looked quite like the character and actor in person...

I had problem deciding which was Jack Sparrow at first. But for other POTC fans, they would know that Jack Sparrow wears thick eye makeup, which is eyeliner on the top eyelid and the lower eyelid.

Erm... I forgot his name but this fella is Jack Sparrow's assistant. Remember???

Say hello to weird looking Orlando Bloom. His upper body looks like too muscular d. He got so muscular meh??? Don't think so... (I don't like Orlando Bloom...don't know why)

Some sepet looking Chinese soldier from Singapore *hears Chow Yun-fatt's voice booming: "WElcome to Singapore"*

I still don't get it. Why Singapore??? Not that I have anything against Singapore lah... But why Singapore??? WHy not Thailand??? Why not Myanmar??? Why not Malaysia????

I can't find Davy Jones anywhere. Maybe it was the lack of time lah... I don't really Captain Barbosa but... ok lah... Since I can't find Davy Jones right???

The undead monkey

One of my favourite character in the movie. How nice if I can have an undead something. I won't be afraid that it might die and cause me sadness.

Ok, one last thing about POTC megablocks before you guys close my blog...
This cannon can really shoot things. See the top which is red??? The thing will fly out when you press the red thing under the chinese words. Damn cool.

After a matter of life and death on the road (Li Shan's brother nearly scare both Li Shan and I to death with his driving), we reached Times Square in one piece and sent her brother off in a very dramatic way. I shall not disclose how dramatic it was coz it should be done by Li Shan in her blog.

We went to shop in Sungei Wang till our legs nearly gave ways. I don't know what is so special about Sungei Wang but we just love doing our shopping there. WE are not lalas, mind you!!! But we find the stuff sold at Sungei Wang more suitable to our taste and our pockets.

After much shopping, Li Shan suggested that we have our dinner before returning back to MC (to avoid jam la tu...). Esther and Li Shan both agreed to go to have dinner at...
For those who didn't know, this is the signature of Zang Toi's cafe situated I forgot which floor was it d. :P Sorry la... your blogger here damn forgetful punye...

Anyways, I had not been to Zang Toi cafe ever. Of course I know who is he lah...well, for those who don't, here's Zang toi for you... As I was saying, I know about Zang Toi coz I read about him in newspapers and saw him on TV before. But never had I step into his cafe coz I thought it was some high class place which serves damn expensive food. But I was wrong, it was not expensive at all. It was quite worth the price that I paid actually.

There are many set lunch/dinner which you could choose from which are really reasonable. Summore their servings are quite big. So like the three of us went, we only order two sets of meals coz its actually too big for us to finish one set by ourselves.

anyways, here's what included in the set lunch/dinner...
You could choose from either these two drinks. But unfortunately the forgetful blogger had forget the names of the beverages already. So sorry... :P

Both drinks are citrussy (erm... is that a word???). One is more to the sweeter side while the other is more sour-sweet. I prefer the sour-sweet one coz I love things that are sour. (I AM NOT PREGNANT!!!)

Then there are the main courses...

The close up
This was good. I was havin second thoughts about this dish and didn't order it. Well, Li Shan did.

Reading the name of the dish, I thought its gonna be damn spicy. But it was not. It does have a tiny wee bit of spicy hint but was not until I cannot eat it. And it was damn good can??? I will definitely order this the next time I'm there.

Ordered by Esther
The two main dishes that we ordered were quite popular I guess. Coz most people ordered these two dishes and the other popular one was the club sandwich which we didn't order coz we thought that it won't make us full. Hehe~

Anyways, this chicken was good too. It was not the average Hainanese Chicken Chop you eat in other stalls which are so hard that you might break your teeth sinking into it. This chicken is real tender and the mushroom gravy on it was damn damn delicious. I think Sinren would love this. Ney... let's go and have lunch there!!!

The side dishes for this dish was...
typical curly fries
Nothing special about them...

Coleslaw and some sort of sambal
The coleslaw was also normal in taste lah. But the sambal was damn hot. I didn't eat much of it. It was good actually.

The three makan face
We might look as if the food were not nice but no lah... we were juz tired. Whole day of class k??? Summore had forum before this (which I had to re-do because it was "unsatisfactory")

Next came the dessert...

I'm not sure if you could read the caption on the photo but this is Chocolate Banana Cake with Ice cream.
Not a big fan of chocolate banana cake. Coz I don't like that combination. Erm... actually I don't like banana cakes lah. Eating banana alone is fine for me but not as cakes. I only ate the ice cream. Hahaha~ No lah... actually this was not the typical chocolate banana cake with the mixture of banana and chocolate. The cake is actually pure chocolate cake. Damn nice and rich. The bananas were cut and selit in between of the cakes. So I either eat the cake or eat the bananas but not altogether. Yala... I am damn weird lah. Cannot is it???

This dessert comes with either...
Nothing to talk about coffee and tea right? Takkan didn't drink before. Hahahaahah~
But there was this funny event happening during the coffee and tea thing. Kan we ordered two sets right? So we ordered coffee for Li shan and tea to be shared between me and Esther. We were drinking halfway when suddenly the waiter brought another cup of coffee. We were puzzled and told the waiter we already had all our orders already. Plus we already paid the bill. The waiter looked at us puzzled and said he'll go check it out. Tapi tak return langsung. So another waiter was walking by and we quickly told him about the coffee again. He smiled and tell us: "Its ok. Take it as a complimentary item" Wah!!! So nice. Ok, I have to admit that I don't know what the hell is a complimentary item but which cafe would do this??? Erm... not many I know lah... I tell you... I definitely will come back to this cafe coz the staffs are so nice (not because they gave me complimentary coffee ok???),the whole enviroment of the cafe is so nice and the food is va-va-voom...

Some other photos we took...

Were you thinking that I'm gonna take photo of myself??? Hehe~ I was too free at that time so instead of camwhoring I took photos of sugar. Shy lah wanna camwhore in public.

Well, if you wondered why they serve coffee/tea after we had our beverages earlier on. Well, I don't know either but the weird thing was we were not bloated with water after eating everything. And we were felt just right after the meals not full until wanna vomit like we always felt after eating.

Ok lah... that's it for today. See you guys soon. Maybe after I return from Malacca coz you know how sucky is my line in Melaka. Worst than MC. Pengsan!!!!

Here's Mr Levi saying...
p/s: I know this is not Mr LEvi Strauss lah... Just joking... hehe~

Meet up with Vivian

Apart from being busy doing all the given assignments and blogging everyday, I picked up a new habit... well, its not a bad habit but its nt a good habit either coz its highly addictive.

Lately, I had been viwawa-ing. I read about Viwawa first from Xiaxue's blog then I read about it again in Janice's blog. I thought it was some Mahjong website coz both of them said about playing Mahjong there. Well, I don't know shit about Mahjong so didn't care to check it out. But then thanks to MEl, who told me she had been viwawa-ing, asked me to check out the site and...good lah!!! now I'm addicted to it. Now I'm just taking a break off Sushidon and blogging here. Hahahahahaha~

Anyways, Vivian had been back to Singapore for don't know how long d but I haven't even posted up the photos of our meet-up. HEhehehheheheh~ *SOrry arh, cousin... too busy lah...*

Well, actually I met up with her twice when she comes to KL. But on the first meet-up, I was sorta shy coz I haven't seen her for hell knows how many years. On the second meet-up, I guess we spent almost the whole day together on the first meet-up that we got close again (but stil not as close when we were younger... :'( *sorry*)

We met up in Midvalley and godma treated us to lunch at Seed cafe. I didn't know that Seed had a cafe and thanks to my cousin's I thought she asked us (Sinren and I) to go to Sweet Cafe. Hahahahaha~ Search the whole Midvalley pun tak jumpa. Coz there isn't one cafe called Sweet Cafe. Hahahahah~ We only found out that we were wrong when she told sinren: "Zhong Zi arh..." Zhong zi= seed in mandarin. Hahahahahaa~



Godma asked why I took the shots so unartistic one...So she did this...

Adding the little pot by the chocolate milkshake

All I can say is... "Geng arh, godma!!!" Hahahahahahaha~ Maybe she should start her own blog since she's trying to be an "in" auntie. Hahahaahahah~

Sinren's one too

Don't really like it cooked this way. Not that nice...

Stitchie added to give an artistic feel to it

Artistic enough not godma??? HAhahahahaha~ BTWs, its my icecream. Don't know why they served icecream at the beginning. At the written as dessert mah... should have served later right???

Its too sweet and very moderate in green tea taste. Not that nice. Tasted nicer ones.

Mine mine mine!!!

The amount of cheese!!!

Li Shan, are you seeing this?? Do you love it??? Waahahahahahahahahahah~

My pasta tasted better than Sinren's. Heheheeheh~ Well, it was only my opinion lah... He thought his was nicer.


Quite spicy lor... Very nice also...


Didn't try it so don't know how it tasted like. But I tell you the noodles are so little, its so damn pathetic. Noodles naik harga heh???

Vivian's beef noodles came with a bowl filled with these. She asked godma: "Why they give me grass?" Hahahahahha~ Damn kelakar lah my cousin.

Its not grass la, bi. Its leaves. Hahahahaha. WTF?????


erm... its Sinren's friend and also Viv's online buddy. Don't know his real name.

Godma calls him the "very organized" person. Coz he started eating his food by finishing the fries first, then the cucumber and tomatoes, then the bread and finally the grass...oops! I mean salad leaves. Hahahahaha~ *I cannot stop laughing at the joke lah viv* wahahahahahaha~

Anyways, we did various normal activities teens would do. Actually apart from Viv, none of us are teens anymore. But since she's the guest. WE went to play pool and play at the arcade. And I won sinren in the Daiko game. Ahahahahah~ Say la summore you are better than me. Tak malu. Hehe~

Then all of them teman me to take some stupid photo at the Elizabeth Arden booth. Ok, the story is that Esther, my roommate bought a bottle of perfume from Elizabeth Arden. One of the free gifts was a free make over and photo taken professionally. Esther didn't wanna take the photo so she asked me to do it. So i did lah... Erm~~ will show you all the photo at the end of the post.

After they teman me all, we have to separate coz Sinren had to go church, I have showcase practise and Viv has to go back to godma's. So before she goes, I insisted of taking photos with her. Manatau I'll need to wait don't know how many years more to see her again...

The unprofessional Sinren Liow took this

Kena maki from me coz take photo so ugly. Hehehe~ But I gave him a second chance to prove he can do it...

He failed T_____T

Two very pretty girls take until like that... damn sad can??? T____T

My God!!! My hair looked so aunty!!! The stupid hairstylist don't know how to style my hair lah!!! Spoil my image only!!!

I gave up on Sinren's skills and took photo with her with camera phone...

Got standard!!!


After seeing my "got standard" photo taking skills, Sinren gt envious and said: "Alaa... you take with you handphone sure nice lah..."

Oh... Tak dapat take nice photo say other people pulak...I showed him that I could take nice and not blurry photos with my camera as well to shut him up.

Nah!!! Ambik lu!!!

His hand was blurry coz he was waving it. It wasn't that my skill was bad. :P

Still not satisfied, he started taking more ugly photos of me...
People ask you to take that time don't want... I use my handphone d then come kepo take pulak... isk isk isk~~~~

OMG!!!! I looked like some gila mak cik!!!! T____T
Thank God no bald spot

Ok, enough of the revenge of taking photos of each other. Hahahahahah~ We sent Vivian to the taxi stand then both of us went to take bus back to University LRT station.
Somehow I think we look scarily alike
My makeup is so thick!!! Yuck!!! FYI, I only put thick makeup when I need to perform on stage. So tak biasa lah!!!
My boyfriend loves to carry my bag for me. Summore he carries it like a girl. Hehe~ I told him not to carry it this way and even showed him the better way to carry my bags. But he said..."People won't think I'm gay lah... I got you beside of me mah...Never mind how I carry lah..." I don't know bout you guys but that sounded damn sweet to me... ^____^

L again...

L with blusher??? HAhahaahhaah~ And lipstick??? Hahahahahaha~ I forgot what's L's sister's name d. Apparently she looks like this. rEally!!!!

After that I returned to uni and rushed to practise but only to find Esther and Li Shan. No one so usual... I was surprised we were able to pull it through since the whole practising sessions were blah.

Since no one was there, I sat there and....
...camwhore lah!!! What else???

Eating the fried seaweed thingy made by Li Shan. Don't know what's it called. Haha~ Damn nice 'tho. Good job Li Shan. Shall try to make it when I'm back in Melaka.

Because my partner was not in action (she's in some camp lah...) so I couldn't practise. So I camwhore while they practise. Hehe~ ^_^

My hair is flat by now so it looked nicer. No more birdnest looking.

Lobby got nice lighting huh??? I didn't know until I saw these photos...

I don't know what's wrong with me...


I like this photo very, very much. Its blurry but don't know why I like it so much. I looked like a ghost ler... Damn nice...

Like I said before, I took the photo at the Elizabeth Arden booth right? Before I show you guys the photo, let me first show you the make over they did for me...
The eye

This is not how I would usually makeup. I seldom put pink or purple eyeshadow which is quite weird coz I love pink like hell. I usually would put gold or brown or blue eyeshadow. I would usually put damn thick eyeliner but this makeup fella juz did a small thin line for the eyeliner.
More obvious with the eyes closed

But I love how the mascara compliments my eyelashes. Its not clumpy like the one I am using now. Konon best mascara in the world but damn clumpy. >_<
I have cow's eyelashes...

So said by the elders of my family lah... Hahahahaha~ But I have not really seen cow's eyelashes. Are they really long??? Gotta go ask Puff and see lah.. Hehe~

Overally, I'm ok with the eye makeup lah... Juz tht I tak biasa with the style nie coz it wasn't my style. I like damn thick eye makeup lor.
Kissie Kiss

I don't usually use lipstick coz I hate the smell of it. I only use lip glosses or juz plain Vaseline.

I don't like the colour of the lipstick they used on me and the smell is... the one which I hate lah... I think they put gloss but all hilang d. Hehe~
Give you face
Many people said that the base they did for me was great. Erm... I don't know the definition of great base lah. Coz I hardly much attention to my base makeup. I just simply cover up my dark circles then slap powder which is a tone darker than my skin to cover up everything. But recently I bought the wrong shade and people kept asking me why I put so thick powder on my face. T____T Sorry lah... will go and buy another powder soon.

They really did a good job in covering up my dark circles and pimples lah but I tak biasa that they makeup until I felt as though I had ten layers of something on my face.

Ladies and gentlemen... are you ready for the photo???
Don't get heart attack k??? Not my fault...
Now I have a photo to put in front of the coffin car when I pass.

I am not saying that I hate this photo lah... I know the makeup artist made much effort to do makeup for me and did that "birdnest" hair for me. I know the cameraman had to come up with poses and ways to take photos so that my damn face don't look so longish. I know everything was done perfectly. But....

Its just not me lah in the photo. I look at it. It looked like me but I don't feel like its me.

I always wanted to take studio photos to...well, celebrate my youth...Hahahahahaha~ But I hope in the photo I can potray the real me and not some weird looking me like in this photo. I won't like the photo if it was me trying to be another me. (God!!! Too much of Performance Theory!!!) And that is why I know I am not model material like my aunt say I can be.
Trying to re-create the same pose

At least I felt more me looking at this photo.

Ok lah... that's it for today... hope you guys won't get nightmares seeing the photo just now. Hahahaha~ Its not that scary right??? HAhahahaha~

I'm going back to Melaka tomorrow. Like finally!!! I miss everyone back home. Mum, dad, my bed, my tv, my friends, my Malacca food...etc. Too many to name d lah...

Please continue to pray for my health coz I have not recover from diarrhoea yet.

Before I go, last two pretty face of mine for you guys...

Don't miss me... Hahahahaha~
