Wei Seng Chicken Rice and double boiled Cantonese soup

wei seng chicken rice

Wei Seng Chicken Rice is a chicken rice shop
located at Tabuan Jaya at the food court beside Choice Daily. It also
boasts a repertoire of double boiled Cantonese soups in a heating
element beside it which the proprietors actively promote.

The double boiled Cantonese soups (broth) is held in traditional
deep ceramic bowls and kept warm in a similar contraption to the double
boiling method used to boil the soups. I was told that the soups have
been prepared for as long as 24 hours for an authentic slow-boiling
Cantonese soup. They have a lot of different soups on offer, ranging
from Bitter Gourd soup to Ginseng Chicken soup.

I had their chicken rice (shared) with 3 other people and their
chicken rice is alright, though not as good as other places like Suan.
The rice portion is small, but cheap (a plate of chicken rice costs
just RM 0.60, an unheard of price nowadays). The chicken rice itself is
good, it’s seasoned well with chicken essence, but the chicken is
nothing to write home about.

wei seng ginseng soup

Their double boiled Ginseng Chicken soup (RM 3)
tasted good though. It has visible strands of ginseng floating inside
and the broth is fairly clear (as all good broth should be). There are
several chicken pieces inside and this place seems to subscribe to the
less-is-more school of thought as the soup only contains ginseng and
chicken.

The Ginseng Chicken soup is a nice complement to the chicken rice –
I ended up having two plates of rice. The ingredients in the soup are
tender, with an almost melt-in-your-mouth texture to the ginseng. I
would recommend this place for their RM 3 double boiled soups as it is
hard to come by outside restaurants here. It’s best to go early as the
soup seems to sell out really fast.

Razor wire

razor wire

Razor wire is a variant of the ubiquitous barbed
wire meant to ensnare humans instead of animals. Normal barbed wires
have spikes on them and don’t really do much to prevent trespassing.

razor wire blades

Razor wire is a mesh of wire with sharp metal strips instead of
sharp points and is designed to cause serious cuts to anyone it snares.
It’s easy to differentiate razor wire from barbed wire from the
aggressive profile in the former. It is particularly nasty when it’s on
the ground on the other side of the fence…

Do not attempt to land on razor wire.

SugarBun's "Happy Meal" @ RM 7.88

sugarbun happy meal banner

SugarBun has come out with their very own Happy
Meal (though this one doesn’t come with a toy or collectible, but legal
liabilities from McDonald’s) priced at RM 7.88. I noticed the banner at
the SugarBun outlet in Kenyalang, Kuching and decided to check out
SugarBun’s implementation of the Happy Meal (TM McDonald’s).

sugarbun happy meal promo

The “Happy Meal” consists of:
2 pieces Broasted Chicken
1 Savory Rice (TM SugarBun)
1 Fresh Pickies (I believe they meant pickles, and “fresh pickles” is an oxymoron)
1 Soft Drink (12 oz.)
…and the font and coloring is remarkably similar to McDonald’s Happy Meal. Trademark infringement kinda similar.

Behold! The SugarBun Happy Meal!

Behold! …a closer look at the SugarBun Happy Meal. I honestly
don’t know why they would want to name this a Happy Meal and risk
litigation when it’s just a combo meal.

sugarbun happy meal toy

It does come with a toy though…kinda. You have to insert 20 cent
coins to play with the toy though, and you can’t take it home with you.

SugarBun – i’m lovin’ it. ;)

Happy Birthday Irene Chan Ai Ling! =D

irene 21st

Okay, this is a rather belated post – Irene had her birthday on the
25th of March and I got fucked up that night and also Sunday night so I
didn’t post until today. I was working OT that Saturday (crunch time
for a project) so we just met up for drinks at Luconia.

irene 21st white packet

I got Irene something very cheesy for her birthday. It was funny, at
least with my increasingly demented sense of humor. There were three
things inside, two of them I told her she could probably guess (which
she did, it was plywood ;)) but she didn’t get the third one coz it’s
just too cheesy.

irene 21st trio

This is me, Irene and David. I think we were pretty much fucked up
by that time…at least I was. Hell, I’ve been fucked up since 7 pm. :)

Happy Birthday Irene Chan Ai Ling [blogspot.com] ! Much <3 !

P/S – Aries rulez!!!!1oneone. You’re technically legal now, Irene! =D

A MapleStory from a Lvl 2X Swordsman

maple-story

I’m told that MMORPG players act out the deepest instincts suppressed inside the id in-game. I guess that says a lot about me.

I’ve always wanted to be a lumberjack. Just a simple axe wielding,
tree chopping, lumber felling person, just like in the old days. It has
been my dream since I was a wee little kid.

People grow up wanting to become a doctor, a lawyer or an engineer.
I’ve always known what I wanted to do when I grow up – chop trees.

Unfortunately, my dad had different plans. Chopping trees cannot
earn money, he said. Chop tree people look down on you, he said. Thus,
he sent me for an overseas education when I was 15 to quell this “tree
chopping fantasies” of mine.

maplestory 15

…but I did not waver from my True Purpose (TM) in life. I secretly
chopped trees (and sometimes people when trees are scarce) in New
Zealand. I started out with small shrubs, and graduated to tree
branches.

Alas, I was sent back when the tree chopping shenanigans of mine came to light.

However, I was not to be stopped. I went to Australia to do my college and uni and started chopping trees again. I even bought an axe [sixthseal.com] early on in the blog.

maplestory aussie

I started my activities with earnest then. I started secretly
twisting branches off larger trees and chopping small trees in the
middle of the night. I also plucked mushrooms if I needed a quick fix.
I was soon graduating to large trees and when I came back to Malaysia
to work, I started moonlighting as a tree chopper, venturing into DBKL
protected tree plantations to chop trees. FELDA settlements are also a
frequent hangout, since I also enjoy chopping palm oil plants
occasionally.

I ventured into virgin rainforests when I came to Kuching to chop
timber trees with earnest (at night, of course). I even earned a
moniker for my actions.

They call me the Mysterious Midnight Tree Massacre.

maplestory life

However, one fine day, I was arrested and thrown into jail for
chopping trees. They said I needed a timber permit. My place was raided
and all my tree chopping equipment and miscellaneous lumber was
confisticated. I was filed with criminal charges of possession of
timber without a permit with a court case pending. I was let out on
bail several days later, despite the regulation two week minimum remand
time on one condition:

I was not to chop trees or speak of it anymore.

maplestory

Filled with resentment, I started playing MapleStory [maplesea.com] and chopped virtual trees.

(I also chopped real trees sometimes, but don’t tell anyone)

There is no Bigfoot. I took a personal trip to Johor a couple of
weeks ago and the trees uprooted themselves in sheer terror and started
to walk, leaving those huge prints on the ground.

Glenfiddich Solera Reserve Single Malt (15 Year Old)

glenfiddich solera reserve 15

Glenfiddich Solera Reserve 15 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
is one of the product lines of the popular Glenfiddich brand, which is
the best-selling single malt Scotch whisky in the world. Glenfiddich is
usually associated with the “Special Reserve” 12 Year Old variant and
the “Solera Reserve” 15 Year Old single malt is a less common and more
premium Scotch whisky from their product line.

glenfiddich solera reserve drink

The Glenfiddich Solera Reserve 15 Year Old single malt comes in the
distinctive Glenfiddich tube box that opens on one end and the unique
triangle shaped bottle. The Solera Reserve bottle is amber instead of
the green tinted bottle seen in the 12 year old Special Reserve. The
differences are not merely cosmetic though, the more mature 15 year old
Solera Reserve has more complex notes compared to Glenfiddich 12 year
old Special Reserve.

glenfiddich solera reserve 15yo

Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Solera Reserve is a Speyside single malt
produced from three types of casks – traditional American bourbon,
Spanish sherry and new oak. It is mixed in a large Solera vat, made of
Oregon pine and the beautifully balanced single malt is left to settle
in a small Solera tun before bottling. Interesting…I just grabbed
that from the Glenfiddich liner notes. ;)

glenfiddich solera reserve bottle

The Glenfiddich Solera Reserve has a more complex taste compared to
the 12 Year Old Special Reserve, with a smoother and deeper flavor that
reveals fruit, spice and a touch of oak. It has a long and lingering
aftertaste, and is great to drink neat or with some ice. It’s a bit of
a sacrilege to use mixers in single malt Scotch whiskies. Expect the
Glenfiddich Solera Reserve to set you back about RM 400.

Glenfiddich has a wide range of single malt Scotch whisky from Special Reserve 12 Year Old, Solera Reserve 15 Year Old, Ancient Reserve 18 Year Old, Gran Reserva 21 Year Old, to the prestigious Glenfiddich 30 year old. I highly recommend the Solera Reserve 15 Year Old for the best price/performance ratio. :)

The first documented instance of Internet slang making its way to SMS text

net2cell

The first documented instances of the use of medium (or rather,
carrier) related linguistics are usually quite inane, as is this first
instance of Internet slang semantics spilling over to SMS (Short
Message Service) text in cellular phones. Just like the first electric
telegram sent “What hath God wrought!” using Morse code and the
earliest smoke signal transmitted the message “Ogg like meat better
after pig throw in fire”, the first Internet to SMS message (Net2SMS)
went:

Golden Arch Garden Laksa review

golden arch shopping mall

Golden Arch Garden Laksa (not to be confused with
the Golden Arches, which sells a totally different food product) is
located at Golden Arch Shopping Mall and I heard its laksa is serious
fucking business.

golden arch garden laksa

Golden Arch Garden Laksa has RM 3/4/5 bowls of laksa and the RM 5
bowl, which is their flagship, has two large tiger prawns in it. The
laksa booth is also the flagship of the eating establishment – it
belongs to the owner.

golden arch prawns

There is a huge tray of differing sizes of prawns, which is selected
depending on your order e.g. an RM 3 bowl of laksa would have small
prawns while the RM 5 bowl of laksa would have two huge tiger prawns.

golden arch laksa

Behold! The legendary Golden Arch Garden Laksa. This is the large (RM 5) bowl and contains 2 huge tiger prawns in it.

golden arch laksa tiger prawn

I’m told that the proper method to partake in tiger prawn infused
laksa is to pour the laksa soup down the head of the tiger prawn to
allow the flavors to really shine.

Laksa – Serious Fucking Business.

The bird nesting outside my window – Season II (Mating Season)

bird nesting again season two

There is a bird nesting outside my window again. I know it’s nesting
coz it’s been sitting there on top of its eggs for several days now. It
did gave me a look of alarm (at least, that’s what I think a bird would
like when alarmed) when I stepped up and took a photo of it behind the
screen.

This bird has been making me sick (not figuratively, literally!)
since it’s perching on top of where I sleep. I received a lot of flak
when I removed its nest (though in all likelihood it’s not the same
bird, just the same species) in Season I [sixthseal.com] but I wonder, given the H5N1 avian flu and all that, would I receive the same barrage of disapproval this time?

Hmm…
