The Sun Lee How Fook @Jalan Kampar, Ipoh ~~


This restaurant is quite famous in Ipoh! Before it moved to its new premise, it was praised until like the taste of heaven. Anyhow, the restaurant premise now is huge and can accommodate a lot of customers !~ They even prepare some nice fake mountain feature outside the building!!! (^^)


As my family was having a luncheon with my uncle family, we were greeted with some nice titbits. !

The 1st dish we ordered was the egg fried with bitter melon. It was quite nice and suitable for a hot afternoon!



Of course, the next dish was a curry boar! I am no fan of curry! But, this was quite nice!!!!~~


Despite against my will, the folks still ordered another fried pork and roasted pork. Anyhow, the combination was amazing even though it was a bit too fatty for old people~~~~


After all the meaty dishes, it was time to clear a bit of our stomach! Oh yes, the vegetable soup was just in time to put off the fire in our stomachs..


Lastly, the steamed and fried fish combination came in as the final dish. It was a bit over fried for the part. Everything was so nice until this dish! Oh well, perhaps, they would have a moment of slip~
I still give a 8.5/10 for this restaurant!

This means you should go try try ~ The price I almost forgot to mention was moderate! Not over-expensive or cheap~ But, worth to try (^^)~

The Snail and The Bug - The Fight To Be The Next Top Model?


I love to take photos of small animals. They are constantly inspiring me in every way. Despite their beauty, they make no easy model for me. They don't understand human words nor do they pose according to my desire. Therefore, as soon as they find out that someone is taking photos of them, they will start to avoid my lens! I love the challenge! I love my pics are not perfect (Hope that I will get a new DSLR in the future (><)) Anyhow, using my beautiful compact camera, I really learn a lot. If you know how to use a tool, a simple rock can kill a fierce monster!

Anyhow, this photo was taken in my mom's garden. I spotted this little cutie snail loitering at the purple plant. Immediately, I grabbed my camera and started to take photo non-stop. However, another cute little bug invaded the scene! This cute little guy/gal just walked on the back of the cute snails!!!!~Hahaha, I guess they are fighting to pose for me? It was really a moment to remember (^^)~

The Barbaric Tale Of Conan The Barbarian 2011

I still remembered vividly the cartoon I watched when I was so little. It was either 10.30 a.m. or 11.00 a.m broadcasted on TV3. The cartoon was about a half-naked man who fought evil witch and sorcerer with his intelligence, wisdom and amazing stamina!!!~  Forever, this cartoon burnt into my head because it was so nice back then. 

It was adapted into a movie very long time ago and acted by Arnold. I didn't watched that version though; so, as a "first timer" for this movie, I was quite interested in watching this movie, and to my surprise, I won a pair of tickets to the show!!! Yeah (^^)

However, to my surprise again, the movie was superbly violent with fallen heads and cut-off limbs@@~The movie was mainly about a warrior who seek revenge on the massacre of his family and his village. With action, passion, special effects, beautiful actors, I thought those were the main ingredients for a successful movie. Yes, they were! The movie was quite nice!~ Yet, it contradicts with the image of Conan in my mind. In the movie, he was being presented to be an arrogant skillful warrior who fears no one! During my cartoon days, he was a wise barbarian who always save the day!~
Despite IMbd rated this movie to be 5.3, I would give it a 7/10 because the action was nice and intense. No moment was wasted as constant actions were fed into the scene! However, this movie still lacks of a strong storyline or unexpected twist! And, of course, Rose McGowan (Charmed) played well as the evil witch; but, the lack of magical scene made the movie rather dull~ Overall, it was ngam ngam passed my test (^^)..hohohoho~~~

How about you? You watched it oredy?

The Tranquility of LIfe


My life is deemed to be chaotic soon despite the preparation being done. Oh well, this is the time to accept the fact that life still goes on. Personally, I am a person who loves peace and quiet. Even though I am such a loud person in front of my friends (Hyper-active, especially the mouth), deep down inside, I am quite a cool person. Why? Because if I am constantly in cool state, I am sure people will never dare to come near to me and be my friend. 

It is so easy to be alone. Letting someone inside your life is not that easy! Sometimes, there are a lot evil people outside. Only time will prove who is your friend and who is your foe. Regardless of this risk, I still open myself to the people and the world outside. Regardless of countless times of being hurt and betrayed, I still believe that there are true friends out thre! (^^)

Another aimless emotional post (^^)~

Fatt Ji @Semenyih


The 1st time I stepped foot in this restaurant for a friend birthday celebration. Oh yes, it seems that I always help my friend to celebrate birthday.Really no money already! Hope tat they will repay in the future..hohohoho~

Anyway, this post is intended for good food (^^)~ Located in Semenyih, an used-to-be ulu place (developing fast thanks Nottingham Malaysia), this little restaurant is just opposite the famous temple in Semenyih central!
The 1st dish was the taufu with meat pieces. Surprisingly, it was quite nice! Loving the steamy feel of this pic~


The fried pork was quite well done too! Despite a bit over-fried, it was totally fulfilling our tastebuds.!
As healthy people, we also ordered numerous of mushroom dishes with a lot of vegetables. Always meat, it will definitely sicken your tummies! So, take some veges as often as possible is good (^^)
I think this is a relatively short post ~~~ (><) It seems that my holiday will end soon. Need to settle all the personal stuffs and ready to start my new sem!!!! Wish me all the best (><)!!!

The Pirates Once Conquered The Midvalley City

Yeah, it is holiday for me finally! My 3 months holiday now only left 1 week (><)~ Anyway, I learned a lot from my internship this year! It made me a tougher person! Hohohoho~ Anyhow, feel attracted by my title? Yes, me 2!!! (^^)~~~
This post I should have updated a long time ago when the premier of the Pirates of The Caribbean 4! Midvalley is always into the "in" stuffs. No wonder despite weekdays, it is still full of customers walking here and there. If you remember (here), last time, Midvalley also wooed his fans with the amazing Alice in The Wonderland decor! This time, I would say that the pirate theme was amazing as well~

Yup, here is the starting of the gallery where it displayed some fine nice tools used in the movie (^^)

The replica there was amazing! If you can see clear, can click on the photo to photobucket~ Of course, the ship wasn't that real! But, it was still breathtaking ! They even had performances on the stage there (^^)


More relics to be spotted from treasure chest to gold bars to skeletons (^^) ~ It was simply cool event! I love those rings a lot (^^)!!!!!!~~

The main attraction was still the ship though despite I DIDN'T really like it ~~~ 

Anyway, I salute Midvalley for always being innovative and creative to attract and serve its customer (^^)~~

Malaysia Best in Losing Skilled Talent~With "Good" Education System!

When you talk about Malaysia, it is beautiful and peaceful and all. But, yet, I still think that Malaysian government can do more. Just watched the NTV7 siasat, I must admit this show is getting better and better! More critical reviews are being shown to the public! This week, it was about the Malaysian youngsters studying in Singapore's government schools while still living in Malaysia! More info at here!

Malaysia already lost some fine talents @SPM and @STPM level. Now, with more children going to Singapore at such tender age, I believe Malaysia will be facing the talent shortage. Thus, at the end, foreign talents will be hired to work in Malaysia at a higher price!

  1. Everchanging of English and Malay Language as The Teaching Medium.
It is so tiresome to see our Education Ministry keeps on changing non-stop! If English is chosen, then stick with it! Now, after 5 years (how i know because I was the last batch learning in Malay), they go to change it again! Non-consistent education will only produce incompetent students. Instead of changing back to Malay, find solutions! Wonder why is it so difficult?

     2.  The Less Insured Placement in Local University.

You may be the top student in your school or even a top scorer in the Nation. Yet, you are not offered a place in the local university for the course you like like medicine, engineering, pharmacy....Now, fine if you can't secure a place due to average results. However, if you studied like a machine, scored straight As, you still couldn't get 1. This is definitely not your fault! The system in the local university might be biased. I can't really comment on that unless they show us the criteria on the students' selection. Then again, if result is not the part of it, what is? After seeing a lot of seniors suffered after scoring straight As in their STPM, I decided to enroll to a private university. A lot of them ended up in Singapore because Singapore appreciate talents! They even got scholarship to continue their studies there with a bond of course. But, isn't that great ?

     3. Competitive on Getting Scholarship
Malaysia's scholarships are hard to get! If you get 1, you really win a lottery. Yet, I still think the system in scholarship really not efficient. The government's criteria to find the scholars again are uncertain! In the end, a lot of full As students go on National TV to appeal their cases. Okay, it is fine if you said that results are not everything; that's why interview is required. However, I heard a lot of stories~~~

   4. University Level Education

Okay, if you are studying in University, I think English should be the main medium in teaching unless you are learning foreign language. However, from what I heard, it was not the case. Some of the lecturers conduct the teaching solely in Malays. Not that I am saying it is bad, you are loving your country. However, in term of teaching, you are actually educating the student to be less comprehensive in English~ Talking about the recent World university ranking, a government servant said that it is a bad influence to take notice of this rank! I said shut up~ From this ranking, you know your level! And, from there, it is never to late to improve it! How? I think should as the professional educator to solve it~ If not, why you hire them for the 1st place~
Just from a simple analysis, you would know that the Education system in Malaysia is still not effective enough to consider all the aspects! How will Malaysia strop lossing skilled talent? 

Solve the problem from the root! From our children! Start to learn from other countries' education system! Why are they more successful ?

Healthy Lei Cha 河婆健康擂茶 @ Kampung Tawas


This place I last time visited quite frequently during my internship last year. (For the address and contact, you can see from the image above). Omg, how time flew crazily without mercy! Oredy 1 year! I feel so old! Anyhow, let's talk a bit about this traditional delicacy!

1st - It is a often by being referred as Hakka (客家)food; But, from where I come from, I was told that it is originated from Hopo (河婆). Anyway, they have similar culture with almost similar accent. 

2nd - It is a mixed of various vegetables with minimal rice along with a very nice "green soup" (Some people would feel weird about this soup). Of course, it is not entirely meat-free because some dried shrimps are used in this dish in a traditional way! But, it is again up to you what you want to put in~


Usually, eating this delicacy, I would order another yong tau fu to accompany the luicha~~Hahaha, yup, the owner is an old lady who is always busy taking care of her grandson(^^)~~

Where's My Present Paper Game!

Since my depressed post on weight matter, it is time to brighten up my bloggie!!!! (^^)~~ Actually, not really...Well, this post is about my last semester assignment in Project Management!~ Basically, as chemical engineer, it is important to learn about management skills. Therefore, we were forced  happy to do a Paper Game for Christmas celebration. 

This was one of the most memorable assignments ever! Well, kinda painful to remember it! But, to me, any memories are good memories! We have to look back but no having hard feeling; instead we learn! Anyway, I know you all anxious to see the final product!


Where's My Present from The Seven Dwarfs 


When you open it, you will see this amazing layout! A big thanks to my groupmates!


Of course to find the present, the children need to travel the paths using the dices and players provided (^^)


The 1st person to reach the Christmas tree in the center will get some nice rewards!!!!~~

Despite the hardship in creating this product along with report and presentation, it was unforgettable to me and members. I think from this module, it opens me to another world of business. It widens my narrow thought on management....

Some people are blessed with amazing figure; some people no matter what they do, it is still the same. Okay, how come Mr. J here suddenly feel like talking about weight. Because over the past 4 years, there is a tremendous transformation of my body shape to a pear shape! Anyway, I was so used to people calling skinny last time. 

Right now, I am a fat boy (called by a used to be fat boy, Kokleong). Haiz, he finally got his way back to me! It is his turn to get a demon-like body liao. ~ Despite my enormous weight gain, it is not really obvious except for the dropping chest and a bit of waistline increment. I still don't understand where are all the gained fats hiding?

Oh well, it is time to lose some weight for healthy sake. Still, it is almost never easy to maintain that kind of lifestyle. Can you guys share me some tips on lazy lose weight method? hahahahaha

Marco Pizza @ Opposite Kelana Jaya LRT!!!!~ (Pizza Battle 1)

After several boring posts about negative of KTM, it is time to move on! What is the best thing to do on Sunday?! Relax and chill, and definitely update my foodie bloggie! To date, some of my more popular posts are on food in Ipoh. Yup, I am from the heaven of good food. Anyway, today, not gonna talk about Ipoh food yet! Instead, I am gonna introduce you all a pizza shop called "Marco Pizza". The location is relatively easy to find which is just opposite the Kelana Jaya LRT.


Yup, as you can see from the pic, the atmosphere there was quite nice and comfy! Ok, the main reason why I wanted to try this restaurant was because I won RM60 vouchers for it! Yeah!!!!~ Seemed like my magical lamp (here) works pretty fine to me ~~~~So, I brought my mom and bro who were ngam ngam in town to join this feast. If not, I can't really finish the vouchers all by myself. 

The drinks we ordered were quite good actually (To my surprise). The mango puree wasn't too sweet with a lot of mango inside it. The cappuccino was really nice and came in large cup..hehehehehe~~~

I have to say this - their spaghetti were really nice tooooo~~ I thought it will be like not that tasty. The portion was also quite large too. 

Well, I am sure that you all can't wait to have a look at the pizzas we ordered right! Since they were the main highlight for this foodie post, we ordered 2 pizzas (Marco Pizza mah).
They were quite tasty! Actually, i would say that the flavouring for the pizzas were quite unique unlike what we tasted in Pizza hut. Therefore, my mom, bro, and I were really satisfied with the food. 


Atmosphere     : 4/5 (nice and clean)
                   Taste            : 4.2/5 (unexpectedly nice)       
                                                          Price           : 2/5 (without the vouchers, they really cost a leg!)
