Hershey's Symphony 1/2 Pound Bar Creamy Milk Chocolate

hersheys symphony chocshop

Hershey’s Symphony is a milk chocolate candy bar made by the largest chocolate manufacturer in the United States. I picked it up at ChocShop at the airport during my flight back earlier this week.

Hershey’s Symphony retails for RM 14.90 and is made by Hershey Foods Corporation in the US. The bar looks rather retro with its linear lines and beige background superimposed with the stylized text “Symphony” in classic red.

The chocolate bar weighs 1/2 a pound, a fact that is proudly declared on the lower left side of the wrapping. This contributes much to the retro look as does the scheme – it’s meant to look like sheet music (as in music sheets, not shitty music).

The 1/2 pound milk chocolate bar opens up to reveal blocks of chocolate with the Hershey’s logo on it. I had forgotten about it ever since I left it on the office table when I came back to Kuching until just now. I had it for lunch.

Hershey’s Symphony tastes like mid-range milk chocolate – with potential, but never quite achieving greatness. It was a good lunch nonetheless.


Aho Mee Sapi Nasi Ayam Restoran review

aho mee sapi nasi ayam restaurant

Aho Mee Sapi Nasi Ayam Restoran is located opposite Wisma Sanyan in Sibu and specializes in exactly what the eating establishment’s signboard suggests – mee sapi which is beef noodles (interpreted very liberally – the innards of the cow is also used in the dish) and nasi ayam – chicken rice.

aho mee sapi interior

Aho Mee Sapi Nasi Ayam Restoran is Malay owned and operated and the food is halal. The two specialties of the restaurant is featured prominently on the walls in the form of menus shaped in the likeness of a chicken and a cow. The menus list the different variations of beef noodles and chicken rice available.

aho mee sapi kitchen

I went there for breakfast when I was in Sibu last weekend. I patronize the establishment for their beef noodles…I don’t think their chicken rice is anything to write home about but the Malay style beef noodles is great! It’s completely different from Chinese style beef noodles. The Malay style beef noodle has a more forceful flavor, which is a Good Thing (TM).

aho mee sapi yu tiaw stall

There is also a stall at the front selling yu char kueh or yu tiaw – a deep fried twin dough batter. It’s a breakfast favorite and it goes well with the beef noodle soup (dipped or soaked).

The yu tiaw comes with chilli sauce as a dipping sauce. It’s sliced into manageable pieces like the servings that come with bak kut teh [sixthseal.com] which is another breakfast staple in Malaysia.

aho mee sapi dish

This is the Malay style mee sapi. It’s the dry version (soup served separately) with everything inside. There are beef slices, beef tripe (stripe), chunks of beef fat and other delicious stuff that comes from the animal known as “cow”. There is a healthy sprinkling of spring onions and deep fried onions as well as bean sprouts on top of the dish.

aho mee sapi yu chilli

The yu tiaw goes well with the chilli sauce (which is depicted in this photo of my gf showing the proper method of dipping it)…

aho mee sapi soup

…and soaked in the soup that comes with mee sapi. The Malay style beef noodle soup is much heartier than the Chinese style beef noodle soup.

aho mee sapi noodles

Aho Mee Sapi Nasi Ayam Restoran serves really good beef noodles. I make a point of going there every time I go back home. The place has been operating for the better part of two years and it’s always packed – a testament to the delicious beef noodles served there.


It is over…

court case ADB 1952 DDA Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 drug possession guilty plea got off with a fine

Well, I had a pretty gnarly day today (which ended well, thank INSERT DIETY NAME).

3rd of May, 2006

It is over.

The chain of events that started on 21st of November, 2005 has reached its conclusion.

Thank you all for dedicating a mass to me, for all your prayers, and miscellaneous things that contributed to the way things went today.

Thank you, 5-0. Never thought I would say this, but there you go. πŸ˜‰

I’m exhausted from the emotional rollercoaster that I went through today, so excuse me while I go home and rest.

Thanks for the support everyone!


TOMY Flip Flap Sunset Orange

flipflap tomy

TOMY has a range of Flip Flap novelty items on display when I was in Sibu. There are arrangements of Flip Flap toys of all shapes and colors powered by a high intensity light above the display. There are designs that serenely shake their heads, some that nods their head slowly and pots with leaves that flutter.

flipflap sunset orange

This is TOMY Flip Flap Sunset Orange which retails for RM 39.90 and comes designated with the internal number of No.07. Sunset Orange is a design with a bright red round pot topped with brown colored “peat” and bright green twin leaves. It’s the nicest one out of the bunch. I got it for my gf.

flipflap text

The text at the bottom of the (sealed) transparent box goes “Flip Flap is a cute flower bud which moves by light. Please grow your Flip Flap in your mind and bloom your own special flower”. TOMY is a Japanese manufacturer so excuse the Engrish.

flipflap switch

There is an ON/OFF red switch at the bottom of the device (which is not meant to be opened). It is all in Japanese, but you don’t need to be a linguistics expert to understand a simple binary toggle. πŸ˜‰


Download: Flip Flap by TOMY video [sixthseal.com]

Flip Flap is advertised as a “Solar Battery”, “Batteryless” and “No Water” plant. It runs on solar power and the intensity of the flapping is dependant on the brightness and heat detected by the solar panel on top of the plant.

I positioned the camera flash directly on top of the solar panel in the TOMY Flip Flap plant and it flapped like there was no tomorrow. πŸ˜‰

The video shows it under normal florescent conditions (was at a KFC outlet at that time).
