Delicious Nyonya Food

The Malacca trip I went on just last week was a fulfilling one, both to the stomach and desire for some relaxation. Had a feast on authentic Nyonya dishes at Restoran Nyonya Suan at Melaka Raya.

Rice was served in this little metallic pot. Being the youngest in the family, the job of dishing out the rice naturally fell on me. But of 'cos I didn't mind as it was pretty interesting to be digging the rice out from the pot.

First dish that came:
I can't really remember the name but it was sotong with a little tinge of spiciness. Yummy!

This picture doesn't do the fish justice at all. It looked as delicious as it tasted! The layer of spice over the crispy skin was really heavenly. I usually detest eating fish skin, but this was an exception.

Kangkong. Nothing really special about this. It was rather 'old' and not that crunchy.

You may ask what's so special about omelette? This one was really soft!

Prawn lemak or lemak prawn I forgot the exact name. Prawn with slices of pineapple in curry gravy. I love prawns, I love curry. So need I say more about this dish?

Lastly, dessert time!

Cendol Kacang Merah
How do you eat chendol? I wonder why many just crush all the ice, mix it with the rest of the ingredients into a watery mess to drink.

I always eat my chendol carefully, getting some ice, picking up some jelly and beans to go along with. Like that then feel cold and shiok enough, isn't it?

So anyway, I really enjoyed the food there. Would definitely eat there again if I were to go Malacca again.

Merry Christmas!

helloooooooo, I'm back!

Still haven't gotten down to blog about LASIK 'cos I went for a short trip to Malacca from 21 to 23!

And I was down with gastric on Christmas eve. Vomited and went to see the doctor. Ate medicine which made me so drowsy that I slept for the whole evening, had dinner and slept all the way till X'mas morning. It really sucks being sick.

So anyway, just here to wish everyone a


In times of trouble and pain, who is there for you?

Lucky Draws, how lucky are you?

Ok, really can't stand the boredom, so I've decided to strain my eyes a little and blog..

This is a long overdue post, around 3 weeks back..

Went to a carnival then..
There was free popcorn, candy floss, ice cream and of course a buffet lunch.

Speaking of free buffets, I really don't understand how some people can be so thick-skinned to pile up their plates with truckloads of food, when they see so many more people queuing up behind them. It's always because of such people that there isn't enough food to cater for all.

So, anyway, one of the main highlights of the carnival was the lucky draw! (though guests weren't given the chance to participate *#(&@#!)

There were more than 50 prizes to be won that day, and someone won..........
5th prize! yay!

What's inside?

Harvey Norman vouchers worth $350! yay again!

I've never ever won a single lucky draw in my life. Have you?

Good Bye Spectables

I'm done with my LASIK surgery!

But I need rest and more rest before I start blogging about the whole experience. It really made my heart pound and pump vigorously throughout the surgery. And I couldn't stop twisting and clinging super tightly onto both hands.

Alright, can't strain my eyes too long. I'll be back!

Where are my holidays?

Been pretty busy this week, went to school for 5 out of 6 days so far. Going school tomorrow again. Yea, it's a Sunday tmr, but well, no choice.

So anyway, Thursday was free Starbucks day! Not really free, had to donate any amount you wished in exchange for a drink.. The queue was long but moved very quickly.

Didn't know the drink costs $6.30 so I donated quite little.. oops..

Went to Orchard to take a look at the Christmas lightings.. Hmm, rather boring.. The lightings just kept alternating along the street..

Ended the day with aching feet and a teddy bear christmas tree!

Do you feel that this year's Christmas is less "christmas-y"?

When eyes can't see inner beauty

I am seriously damn pissed right now. Continue reading if you want to see me rant.

How would you like it if your boyfriend/girlfriend KEEPS ON criticizing that you have crooked teeth? Come on, NOT a single one of my friends have ever commented about my teeth except you. ONLY you.

Have I ever criticized your flaws, picked on your shortcomings? How would my "crooked" teeth affect you? Is it that irritating to you?

Just because you have put on braces before doesn't give you the right to criticize me.

And not only do you pour cold water on my upcoming LASIK surgery, you do not ever bother to ask when it is or wish me well. Thanks for being so caring and understanding.

NO ONE IS PERFECT. Do not do onto others what you would not have them do onto you!

'Nuff said.

Amazing Race

Watched all 9 episodes of the latest season of the Amazing Race over the weekend.. Haven't been catching them due to the busy semester.. Used to tune in to every single episode for the past few seasons.. Love the excitement of the show, love seeing how the teams conquer the physically challenging tasks and of cos how they get to see the world..

Season Finale coming in a weeks' time.. Rooting for brother/sister team Nick and Starr! Starr's so pretty..



Received bad news from a friend over a breakup. Feeling sad over it though I'm not even involved.. 5 1/2 years of relationship just gone like that.. Love is so vulnerable, isn't it?
