A regular year end note

Today last year, I've lost quite a lot of things. Things that I've earned through my blood and sweat. But they were just things. The one thing that I've lost and regret the most is that I have lost my trust and guarded confident to live at peace, for a few months I wasn't. And not long after that I've lost my great aunt and a friend, regretfully that I have not spend more time and tell them enough that I love them.

Today this year, the very now, I have earned most of them back. Through helps, supports and blood and sweat. Though I have to admit, most of them with the greatest helps and supports from family, friends and colleagues.

I couldn't be more proud and grateful to live among them, to have learned and walk shoulder to shoulder with them. I am thankful for as such great companions as I have grown up and to live my own story, those helps are ones that would be mentioning every chapter of the life story book, my very own.

This won't take long, I just want to say thank you. Thank you for your kind words, your supports, your advice, your guidance, and your present when I utmost needed you. All of you, even the ones that I dislike, well you will not know that you are, however, I would also want to thank you. Thank you for showing me my weakness in dealing with difficult people like you and make me realize that I too, sometime, being difficult myself for others. It would be a great pain in the behind as I felt the same when I have to deal with you.
Thank you for showing me that I am not the worse and thank you for showing me that it's not that bad just to learn to endure others' characteristic and personality or even attempt to change you.

I have not lived a second not being grateful to have you around. Thank you.
And to top that, my sister had delivered a beautiful baby girl and my brother got married to a beautiful and sweet woman. And I am still here alive!

Well, till we meet again, a very happy new to you all, and to all a wonderful holiday and greatest start 2013!

At Kame Sushi

Last Friday my friends and I went for a quick birthday celebration for the boss. We went to Kame Sushi at Desa Sri Hartamas.
The restaurant is rather small and cozy, with only a couple of rooms and the sushi bar the restaurant is impeccably private. The uniqueness is that they serve you no menu. What would happen is you will need to share with the chef what is your budget of the meal (per person), what you like and don't, and the chef will surprise you.

The sushi bar and the chef

Appetizer serves with vegetable and fish/seafood cake

Sashimi as the started dish

Grilled Mackerel with salt

Fish & Prawn cake

Steam egg with gravy


Chocolate wrap ice cream as dessert

The above dishes were budget at RM150 per person (exclude taxes). It was good, fresh and delicious. 
One thing though, while serving us the meal they will tell us how to have it. Like which sashimi to use with which sauce and it is very serious thing to do so (a friend of mind was stop mid chewing when they saw him dipped in the different sauce hahaha).

I believe those that appreciate the tradition of sushi food, the freshness of the seafood and raw fish would find this very pleasant and enjoyable.

Watch your wallet if you decide to drop by Kame *wings*

The Nation's Greatest Lost

Deepest condolences to the Nation’s greatest lost, RIP King Norodom Sihanouk. 

Cambodia's former King Norodom Sihanouk, pictured in July 1941 [picture from]

Chinese police escorted Cambodia’s former King Norodom Sihanouk’s body from a Beijing hospital to the airport Wednesday, October 17th, 2012, morning for its return to Phnom Penh, where tens of thousands are expected to line a mourning route. King Norodom 
Sihanouk’s body will remain in the palace for three months, during which time the public can pay respects before it is cremated according to Buddhist ritual. []

Though, I am not in the country, the sorrow shed and I felt the heart ache as the beloved former king had passed. 

There's no party that never end. And this is the end of his journey, life goes on and another to begin.

The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. [Psalm 34:18].

Discrete delusions

Monday returns and I am reluctant to move and get myself off bed to work, though I know I feel rather ridiculously unproductive since i was unfocused since the past couple of days.

The past weekend was eventful, sport, orchestra, party and friends gathering. Weirdly, I found myself lost in an unknown track. I felt empty.
The beautiful orchestra pieces were played, the violinists drown themselves in the rhythm and yet I was rather feel uneasy knowing I was missing out something else while I'm listening to this.

Something I thought I would never need it since I stepped out and fight with the world, and today I found myself eager in a delusional feeling and longing for it.

The pictures came clearer of what I want and what I need. I listen to myself and gasp why didn't I realize this a little bit earlier. I'm lost in words.

With doubt, I need to be stronger if I decided that this is what I want. Discipline and rules to be complied.

This has to be done soon enough.

Breaking habit

I'm back! Well for awhile. 
I've been rather than busy, I'm losing focus. Barely can keep track of what I'm supposed to be doing and what need to be done. My momentum has got weaken and I need to spend more time on what they call; living a life.

So how are you doing? Good? Been busy and productive? Living life to the max?
Okay, I'm catching back up my cooking habit. It's been months from my last serious cooking.

Here are what I need for the cooking (the sardin is for something else =D). I will also share a quick steps on how to cook the above dishes. Pardon my cooking style and it would be nice if you'd like to share different ideas.

Lotus root, peanuts and pork ribs soup
1 Lotus roots, washed and sliced horizontally about 2-3cm
De-shelled peanuts, if you use the shell peanuts, soak them in water about 5 to 10mn and de-shelled them.
300gram Pork ribs, washed and cut about two fingers sizeWashed 1 carrot and cut as cube sizeSmashed and keep the whole few cloves of garlicWashed and soaked dried squid and shrimps
Washed garlic chives and cut about 5cm length (for serving)

Bring water to boil; add smashed garlic, dried squid, dried shrimp and pork ribs. Cook about 5mn, add lotus roots, carrots and peanuts. Lower the heat to simmer, season to your taste and cook about 45mn or till the peanuts as soft as you want.

And you have got yourself a nice soup.

Steam minced pork with preserve salted fish and eggs

Depend on your taste, use between 100gram to 200gram of preserve salted fish

Minced 300gram of pork (mix with fat) and add the salted fish in, you may add a touch of sugar to keep the flavor balance.
Beat 2 eggs and add the minced mixture, mix till all blend.

Steam the mixture about 15mn. The reason you need pork mixed with fat because it will soften mixture during steaming.  
Serve with fresh vegetables like cabbages, cucumbers, long bean or wing beans (or other vegetable that can serve fresh). Your choice if you would like to have the vegetable steam or cook.

Sugar palm fruit dessert

For those who never seen or had this before, this is the sugar palm fruit/seed. Easy found in tropical countries and serve as dessert with just sugar syrup and coconut milk.



Peel the sugar palm fruit skin, wash and drain all the water excess.
Boil a cup of water and add 1/2 cup of sugar with a dust of salt
Lower the heat and add three teaspoons of coconut milk, keep boiling about 5mn.
Remove the syrup from the heat and serve it cold.

Pumpkin sago dessert

Washed and cut the pumpkin about two fingers size
Soak sago in water about 15mn


Bring water to boil, add 1 cup of sugar, a dust of salt. After sugar dissolve, add pumpkin and lower the heat and simmer about 15mn. Add sago and leave the heat on another 10mn. Add 1/2 cup of coconut milk and off the heat.

May I present to you a really easy and good meal (I will skip the stir fried vegetable for now).

Lotus root, peanuts and pork ribs soup
Steam minced pork with preserve salted fish and eggs


Pumpkin Sago dessert
Oh, I didn't stop there. Let's have some juice, ABC juice. Apple Beet root and Carrot. This is good for your liver and anti-toxic.

My recollection of you is fading, and I do not want that.
It was a painful, after 4 years it still is.

Only regret

This is stupid. I blame you! Why didn’t you talk to me? you always do. why not this time?

I blame me for not able to talk as much as before.
I blame me for not responsive enough and find time for you. :(
And now I only can be sorry for what I have not done enough, for you.

I only want to know why do you give up so quickly?

Good night now, forever it will be.

RIP my dear Chris, for whatever reason I pray that you will never have to carry the pain with you when you left us. You know I’ll miss you, I do.

Odd hour phone call

Mother called this very morning at 5.31am. I hesitated to pick up while my heart was racing and wondering what could it be at this odd hour.

She asked if I'm ok, she had a bad dream and she misses me very dearly.
My tears started to roll down on the cheeks with heavy heart and indescribable feeling.

It was a quick phone call, and she just wished to know if I'm safe and sound.

I was and I am very selfish, I left the two old folks at home and gone out for adventures.
How can I not think of them feeling? Of course I have, I just never thought it would be this hard. And it even more harder seeing them grow older without my sight.
The benefit of having them being physically comfort and emotionally comfort is the weight that cannot be traded.
Don't take this the wrong way, it was never be a burden. This has always been the great opportunity for me to fulfill and make them happy in any way.

Mother and Father, I am sorry for not being as close as possible.
I could but I was neglected the opportunities of doing so.
I cross my heart and promise to balance the weight, not because I have to, because I wanted to and because I love you.

At AcmeBar & Coffee

I was out and about on the Easter Sunday. It was a tiring day, but I generally enjoy being where I was. Thanks God for the opportunities, benefits, and every little things that I have gained till present.

The event of the day was to catch up with some friends, and chilling. Went to AcmeBar & Coffee, the place was absolutely amazing. I love the design, the interior, the environment, the meal and almost everything. 
Well, they said you paid for what you wish for, this is considered a medium or rather high class cafe where what you paid for the high tea in ABC can be used to purchase a pretty decent meal in an average restaurant.

They do have set Working Lunch (weekday) at RM 49++, a weekend brunch buffet at RM 99++, and a weekend brunch buffet at RM 199++ with free flow sparking wine.

Cozy sitting at the couch area

Hot Macchiato

White Brownie with coconut and macadamia nuts

It is advisable to have a reservation

Sun - Thr 11a to 12m
Fri - Sat 11a to 1a

+603 2162 2288
It is definitely in the list of my favorite place, but economically advise, I shall not spend so much time there *okay-meme-face*

Been craving for this for awhile now like a pregnant woman.
When pure tiredness kicks in and you have nothing to hold on to, life just lifeless.

I was home for about 3 days during last weekend, a week after Chinese New Year. It was extremely short duration but at least I was home.
Thing hasn't changed much beside everything at the markets are super high costing.

Mother shown me the twin yolks egg, O.o Mother of Egg

Mother always cook my favorites dishes when I'm home
They taste superlicious as always

Introduced Lou Sang at home, end up need to answer so many questions.
What is it? What is it for? What are the ingredients? How to eat? blah blah blah...

The best place to wake up and have breakfast is at home with the ones you love
