Bites: Ipoh Garden @ Applecross

A slow day it was today. I woke up around 9 and started rolling on my bed until I could no longer take it and had to wake up! I really admire people who can sleep till half the day is gone ahah. I remember doing so only when I was so drained after scouts recruit camp almost a couple years back.  When I got up Polly was already up washing previous night’s dessert dishes lol. So nice of her ahah. I had my own brekkie of fried egg on toast while she had cereal. After that I started reading news before studying a little bit.

And then woooohoooo! Kelvin cooked lunch. He made sizzling bean curd which tasted very nice and even better than those we’d find in Chinese Restaurants. Not to mention the one in restaurants are so freaking stingy! They would only give you max 2 tubes of Jap bean curd! Emoo! After that I started to read more Hydraulics which seems pretty easy on the notes but when I peeked at the  questions just now… Jesus! @.@! They even tested AS1170 which concerns wind profiles. Sien.  No wonder Edwin said it is not relevant to our syllabus!

Today I met up with my sister for dinner hehe. Shao Feng, Fishman, Kelvin and I had dinner with her @ Ipoh Garden. I’ve heard so much about this place and I knew I’ve definitely got to try it! This is what we ordered! :

Feng’s Beef Rendang. He said it was ok but he preferred the Nyonya version @ Bibik Chan. This one costs $10!

This was Kelvin’s Ipoh Fried Hor Fun which he said was not salty enough but tasted not too bad. Looks really filling though. The plate was humungous @ $10!

And the picture above me is the fabled Inchikiban chicken which is supposed to be an in-house specialty! It was pretty nice I have to say. Glad I did not have to do the frying. I never liked frying chicken! It is so messy and I often get disappointed when the inside is still raw while the outside looks so overcooked! Also I think I’ve cracked the Ipoh code in the special sauce that came with it! Mustard + BBQ sauce lol. The serving was decent @ $15!

Fishman, my sister and I ordered the Ipoh Hor Fun soup. Which hmm tasted not too bad but when compared to all those that I’ve eaten in KL, lol. Better not compare ahah. It costs $9.90 each bowl.

Lastly are the ice creams we ordered! Durian flavoured ones. It was quite nice but I found the texture not consistent. Shao Feng’s one was somewhat creamier than my sisters :S! These cost 5 bucks a tub!

After that we chit chatted awhile and tadaaaa I stole a few dockets which entitles me to free whopper on each whopper purchase. As well as Big Macs and  1/4 chickens @ Nando’s! Slurpss!! Fat Fat! hehehe!

Also, my friend Jian Hung asked me a little something today and my response came from a song:

“..Me and a couple of old school friends
We're going out to drink
You can come along but leave your girl at home
It'll give you time to think

But you called at the last minute
Said that you were staying in
Well this is not a joke old friend
I'm a-getting sick of this

Oh remember me when she leaves you
And you come and knock on my door
Well I can nurse your broken heart
Cause that's what friends are for..”

                                                                                Remember Me, The Zutons.

Saturday Night: Make It With You

After a hearty meal with the housemates @ a Thai restaurant which I’ve frequented 3 times in the past 2 weeks, we came home feeling hungry. Or ok, not “we” just Pauline. So she decided that we make use of the flour we bought.



LOL! As you can see, there are balls in yellow water which in this case is Pandan syrup! We actually made Tong Yuen @.@! Weird but true, they taste pretty damn good despite its odd shape! The bigger balls had fillings in them while the smaller ones are just plain flour!




These were the two fillings used to stuff the glutinous rice balls. Nutino is my new Chocolate sidekick when I eat bread. I prefer this one more compared to the Australian made Nutella. Nutino comes from Italy by the way and it is cheaper @.@! The crunchy peanut butter was something we bought extra sometime ago!  Kelvin, Polly and I felt that the Peanut Butter one tasted nicer!



Our dessert session did not just end with the Glutinous Rice Ball, we also had Prata filled with Red Bean paste which we bought from the oriental shop in NorthBridge. Fatttt


Ohhh so fat @.@! The winter disease strikes again!

Autumn!: Rain rain rain rain!

Today I woke up in the morning only to find my shirt far away from the place I hanged it! The wind is totally insane if you’d ask me! The wind blew a few of my shirts to the patch of dirt prompting me to wash them! Suckaaa! Oh well, at least we’re not flooding like NSW. Also, the maple trees in the UWA has shed most of its leaves giving the campus a lovely autumn feel! But oh the rain made me wet @.@! Walking to class took us like 10minutes, and class lasted for only 20 minutes @.@!!



Mmmmm.. Oh yea and we’ve been having tong sui every alternate day or so. We had peanut tong yuen as well as red bean flavoured ones! Quite yummy with Pandan syrup! Also we bought Green Tea Mochi! Slurpps slurrps!











Polly took this picture and then she complained about Yi Heng’s hand being dry lol.


Edwin’s birthday is tomorrow, got him a present from Myers just now! Hopefully he liked it! Hope he wears it too! La la la la! After buying the present I had dinner with the White House peeps, Vil and Henry at Regal on Roe! The Singapore Style Chilli King Prawns was pretty nice although the word “King” only complements the price, not the size :(! Henry loved the Mayonnaise Peking Style Ribs even though Vil was not too sure about entire "mayonnaise with meat” issue ahah.


Oh and damn faggot! Someone threw a rock at me when I was walking in city! Dammn!!!!!! Luckily my trusty A&F jumper was thick enough to bolster the impact! Wootz!


OOo and I’ve been listening to another old song called Guilty by Blue. I think they’ve disbanded already but oh well.


“If it's wrong to tell the truth
Then what am I supposed to do
When all I want to do is speak my mind
If it's wrong to do what's right
I'm prepared to testify..”

Shape Shift: House Moving!

Rwarr!! Just had a test yesterday. I felt I did it much better than the second one which was horrendous! The class averaged at a fail @.@ So soweee for neglecting this blog hoho! The last post was like three? two weeks ago :(! But I think it will be abandoned even more because the exams are coming! About 15 days on the countdown clock! Nothing much has been happening except for the fact that Pauline has entirely moved all her things into the house. And also the White House has gone wireless allowing us to have a wireless corridor. But oh my god! The internet is really slow! Might have to change my provider to something more ownage like 24Mbps IInet :D




Yesterday we did not cook dinner after the test because we did not bring the meat out of the freezer! We picked up Amanda and had dinner @ Vic park hoho! Had Bintang’s Nasi Goreng Special but it was on the wet side! A bit sucky but yehhh I ate it still. After that I packed a Domino Pizza for breakfast! ahah! Also, we helped Polly moved all her stuff from her new place to the old one. Saw Yoko, Yukari 1 , Yukari 2, Teru and Paticia. Her house so damn awesome. So multicultural! We had a party there a fortnight ago! And Wow! All Korean, Jap, Brazilians and Chinese. So much alcohol, almost made me die! And aaa Soju killed me in half a shot! Not to mention, the lack of food in this so called pot-luck party did not make the alcohol any easier! Do not do alcohol if you are on empty tank! Its sickening! Then I find the Koreans so crazy! Keep on want to hug people! Crazy Joo and Jaewoo.


Polly!! I want picturess! Picturess!!!


Also, I watched Dragon Ball Evolution yesterday and found it saddening. It was pretty damn lame @.@! After that I also watched Fast and Furious 4 which is tonnes better than Dragon Ball!


Polly’s Patrick in her room. We furnished her room Ikea style and its a real looker now. Very well furnished ahah. But her tidiness is another matter @.@ My daughter Polly is soooo untidy. And I thought I was bad *hoho*


Till then, adios~!

4th Dimension transition: Mondays!

For once we thought we’d be super good and attend all the classes on Monday. We were hoping for a new hydraulics lecturer but to our disbelief, Tong Ming was still the lecturer. I looked around the class and the atmosphere was filled with gloom. More than half the class was falling asleep. The classed sucked in conclusion :P Even I was going @.@ (insane) looking at him teach in his own world.


On the other hand I was quite free yesterday. Stayed at home the whole day doing my stuff. And waited till evening to play tennis. Hoho! After that Yi heng became super chef and cooked fried vermicelli with the canned pork slices! So yummy!! But I was the one to teach him the recipe hoho! And also, Pauline had a caffeine overdose during the noon so she was super high the entire day (not to mention super nice). At night she decided to make some pear and plum toppings for the ice cream we bought . Yumm~



The dessert she prepared for us! Not the most presentable one I’d suppose but it is one of the finer tasting ones I’ve eaten. The toppings would beat Mecca’s Strawberry Sundae any day~ Not too sweet and easy to consume!


Today’s Wednesday, Thursday is just round the corner and then Friday and hoho! Weekends!


Oh one last thing to say, it is more a complain actually. The weather is being a bitch. It is freakin 27 degrees today! Yesterday it was 29 !! Dang!
