Li Bai Fusion Cafe review

li bai fusion cafe

Li Bai Fusion Cafe is the latest eating
establishment in the Padungan district. The Padungan area is fast
becoming a catalyst for concept gastronomic outlets and Li Bai Fusion
Cafe just opened its doors to the public less than a month ago. I went
to check it out with Yie Hui last night after meeting her at bing!

li bai fusion cafe shop

Li Bai Fusion Cafe (sometimes spelled Lee Bai) has a great signboard
at the establishment – it features a caricature of Li Bai (a famous
Chinese poet) followed by the Chinese characters spelling out his name
and the words fusion cafe is small font at the bottom. It is owned by Grick Liew from Kitchen Asylum Sdn. Bhd. – a friendly guy who told us about the operations of the place.

li bai fusion cafe alcove

Li Bai Fusion Cafe has a small glass encased alcove at the ground
floor which has nice bamboo features (the bamboo theme is central to
the Li Bai Fusion Cafe decor) and a cohesive theme which includes
Chinese style wood paneling and cordons as well as Chinese style tea
ceremony seating. The open ground floor area is a smoking zone and
there are waitresses to seat you upstairs at the no-smoking air
conditioned dining area.

li bai fusion cafe interior

The dining area on the first floor is much larger and features a lot
of Li Bai (the Chinese poet) writings on the walls and bamboo shoots in
a glass feature at the center wall. The seating arrangements are
similar to the Chinese style tea ceremony seating at the ground floor
and there’s a small staff area which includes a dumb waiter for the
kitchen downstairs to deliver the food up.

li bai fusion cafe lighting

Li Bai Fusion Cafe has bright florescent lighting (and even a
streetlamp!) with halogen lights angled down to feature the writings of
the Chinese poet which the place is named after. The bright florescent
lighting feels cold, but it imparts a feeling of sanitization and
cleanliness (which is next to Godliness, or so I hear).

li bai fusion cafe vip

There is also a VIP seating area (or private dining area) at the
back of the eating establishment – and the unusual aspect about Li Bai
Fusion Cafe implementation of this space is that it’s semi-open. The
dining area is built inside a wooden structure with sliding doors and
the patrons and tables are visible from the outside.

li bai fusion juice

Fresh Juice (RM 3.80)
I think this is apple juice. Yie Hui ordered this one and she said it was good.

li bai fusion chicken

Nyonya Style Chicken (RM 10)
This is the main dish that the waitress recommended. The fusion cafe
moniker is very apt in this case – Li Bai Fusion Cafe serves up Chinese
cuisine with influences from a lot of other disciplines of cooking. It
tastes great – the chicken is spicy and sweet at the same time.

li bai fusion yin yang

Yin Yang (RM 6)
Yin Yang is a dish which comprises flat noodles (kueh tiaw) and rice
vermicelli (bee hoon) mixed in equal parts (which gives it the name).
The rice vermicelli is deep fried before being soaked into the flat
noodles (kueh tiaw) gravy so it maintains its crunchiness at the
beginning and becomes soggy towards the end.

li bai fusion yin yang macro

The Yin Yang dish has a mixture of ingredients such as chicken,
prawns and crab sticks, as well as vegetables. It was rather bland –
that’s the verdict from the both of us.

li bai fusion rice

“Jin Zhen Tou” (RM 7.50)
This rice based dish has heavy influences from Indonesian cuisine –
it’s basically a version of nasi pattaya (fried rice wrapped in an
omelet) served with a side of orange chicken (chicken cooked with
orange). I like the orange slices arranged on the dish…it gives it a
bit of presentation flair. The rice dish is not just topped with an
omelet but completely wrapped inside a large omelet.

li bai fusion rice macro

This is what the dish looks like inside – you can definitely tell I
wasn’t the one who started eating it from the clean break. ;) The fried
rice has oatmeal mixed into it and that gives it a sweet texture at
times. I like the orange chicken too, it tastes great, but Yie Hui is
not a big fan of sweet gravy with rice. I am though. This comes highly
recommended from me.

li bai fusion snow frog

Snow Frog (RM 10)
This is one of the desserts we ordered – it’s a traditional Chinese
herbal drink that’s supposed to be “cooling”. It tastes sweet.

li bai fusion dessert

Fresh “Xi Mi Lu” (RM 10.50)
This dessert is a milk based concoction with an assortment of
ingredients inside. The desserts at Li Bai Fusion Cafe is available
either chilled or hot. This is the chilled version.

li bai fusion dessert macro

There is an assortment of fruits and jellies inside this dessert and
that distinct evaporated milk taste which predominantly dominates the
dessert. I like evaporated milk (a thick and creamy milk) so this went
down really well with me.

li bai fusion cafe end

Li Bai Fusion Cafe is worth checking out if you’re
around the Padungan area and is interested in Chinese style dining with
influences from other cuisines. Li Bai Fusion Cafe also has a large
repertoire of dishes on the menu from double boiled soups to fish.

Next stop: Cambodia

next stop cambodia

I had planned to go to Siam Reap in Cambodia tomorrow – the tickets
were booked through AirAsia a couple of weeks ago on a promotional
fare. I wanted to check out the Angkor Wat (which is closer to Siam
Reap than Phnom Penh, the capital) and perhaps smoke some old skool
opium if I manage to find an opium den. ;)

The trip was supposed to be for one (1) week – and I wanted to check
out Phnom Penh as well, using their internal transportation services,
just backpacking, roughing it out a bit.
(and smoke some opium in an opium den)

Alas, the trip was not meant to be coz one of our projects starts
next week and I’m heavily involved in that project, thus I cannot take
leave. AirAsia does not have a refund policy (they are a low cost
ticket less airline, much like Virgin Blue in Australia) so I’m
scrapping this trip. I’ll go again some other time.

In other news, I won back the cost of the tickets to Cambodia last night alone. ;)

Argentina vs. Serbia & Montenegro
Asian Handicap Odds: Argentina conceding one (1) goal
Bet: Argentina (RM 300)
Result: 5-0 to Argentina

It was an absolute trashing mate! =D I knew the game was in the pocket when the result was 3-0. ;) I won RM 300 from this match.

Netherlands vs. Ivory Coast
Asian Handicap Odds: Netherlands conceding a “half-ball” (1/2) goal
Bet: Netherlands (RM 300)
Result: 2-1 to Netherlands

It rose from 2-0 to 2-1 so this one is also in the bag for me. :)
The half-ball concept is not that difficult to understand – basically,
the team conceding the “half-ball” means you lose if the result is a
draw (since there’s a 1/2 goal handicap for Netherlands) but if the
team wins by even a single goal, you win all. I won RM 300 for this
match as well. :)

I won a total of RM 600 last night. That covers my Cambodia trip costs (plane tickets) that were not meant to be. :)

Oh well, I’ll just go traveling when work is less hectic…

RC Car review – Turbo Tumbler

Turbo Tumbler is a Remote Control (RC) car that has
been making the rounds via the popular “free delivery to offices” paper
run marketing. Our office got the paper brochure for the Remote Control Turbo Tumbler and I ordered one of them while my CTO got another one for his son. RC Turbo Tumbler retails for RM 35 each.

rc turbo tumbler box

Remote Control Turbo Tumbler is basically an RC car that can do
“stunts” like flips and rolls due to the six degree freedom of movement
controller and 360 degree front axel on the RC car design. It comes in
27 Mhz (Orange) and 49 Mhz (Black) for two-person “racing” although I
doubt the RC car is designed for that with it’s bulky SUV (4WD) looks.

rc turbo tumbler car

RC Turbo Tumbler comes in a package which contains the fully
assembled car and the remote control module with antenna (batteries not
included, of course). The car has a “Special Edition” sticker on top
(am tempted to write racing stripes but that would be a gross misnomer)
and several light fixtures which comes on when the RC Car is powered
up. The instruction sheet is basic but it doesn’t require a Phd in
Rocket Science (or Nuclear Physics for that matter) to operate an RC
Car. ;)

rc turbo tumbler remote

This is what the 27 Mhz controller for the RC Turbo Tumbler car looks like – this one does
come with a 9 volt battery, bless their souls, coz that funny shaped
battery is hard to find in the office. It is simple to integrate, with
just the battery cover going into the controller and the snap in
antenna (retractable) to boost the signal strength.

rc turbo tumbler batt cart

The RC car itself requires 4 x AA batteries (which thankfully is in
amply supply inside the office) loaded into a peculiar cartridge
loading system which slots back into the undercarriage of the car.

rc turbo tumbler batt slot

Here’s a shot of how the battery array loading system looks like –
the RC car has large grip types as you can see, which makes it more of
a stunt car than a proper racing RC car. The entire package is ready to
go at this point if you have AA batteries on hand.

rc turbo tumbler go

The Remote Control Turbo Tumbler is “Made in China” and that means
that it doesn’t last. It is manufactured from poorly sourced materials
and one of them didn’t work (the one that my CTO got) so I gave him
mine, which promptly broke in two days. It is however, fun for a day.

Watch the video of the RC Turbo Tumbler at work in the office:

rc turbo tumbler action

That’s me testing the RC car in the office while my CTO is manning
the camera after work just now. Take Two in the video refers to the
botched Take One where the RC Turbo Tumbler didn’t function at all –
there’s “Made in China” for you. :)

Normison soft gel filled capsules

normison capsules

Normison 20 is a preparation by Wyeth which contains the benzodiazepine temazepam
in liquid gel filled capsules. This is the infamous 20 mg gel capsules
that gained notoriety in Australia amongst heroin users for
potentiating the effects of their favorite opiate intravenously.
Normison in gel capsules have been taken off the markets due to rampant
abuse in certain drug communities via injecting the liquid contained
inside the capsule by drawing it out with an insulin syringe.

Naturally, the very idea of injecting gel with the viscosity of
syrup (the medical fraternity refers to it as “liquid goo”) sounds
off-putting to most opiate users, even the ones slamming black tar
heroin. However, “jellies” or “footballs“, as it was
known on the streets has ascertained the infamy of having a high second
to none when injected with heroin. It was very much sought after both
to potentiate heroin and also to replace heroin during the draught of
2000 in Melbourne.

football jellies

I managed to obtain some old stock of Normison 20 (which was kept in
a fridge) that still has much (if not all) of it’s bioavailability
present and I considered administering it parenterally before deciding
against it since I already have one collapsed vein from my
methamphetamine use days. Thus, I took it orally and opened up some of
the capsules to investigate the gel filled Normison soft caps. The gel
(syrup) inside is yellow and slightly bitter-sweet and it tastes rather
medicinal – it reminds me of a clinical setting.

Temazepam has been reviewed on sixthseal.com before and I have
nothing much to add to it – temazepam is a fast acting, short half
life, hypnotic benzodiazepine so that should give experienced
benzodiazepine users a note on what to expect. It’s very weak compared
to recent benzodiazepine structures, with equivalency charts giving a
figure of 20 mg temazepam to 10 mg diazepam.

normison capsules gel

The most interesting aspect of temazepam is the strong hypnotic
properties, which is noticeable after a dose of 220 mg. The same dose
with Oxycodone 20 mg (insufflated) produced a very nice nod that would
probably simulate what the infamous opiate-benzodiazepine cocktail of
heroin and Normison gel capsules produced with a different route of
administration and with pharmaceutical agents.

Temazepam is very fast acting, with noticeable effects within 30
minutes and an equally short half life (approximately 4 hours) which
would coincide with the properties of heroin (also a 4 hour duration
substance) which could probably explain the popularity of Normison
capsules amongst heroin users (with pharmacies reporting robberies
where the robbers demanded ONLY Normison capsules).

However, it just doesn’t hold up with the hypnotic benzodiazepine
agents available today such as Dormicum (midazolam) although
personally, midazolam has lost its hypnotic properties for me and puts
me into a strange wakeful state instead, but that’s another post.
Temazepam however, is a very fast acting hypnotic benzodiazepine, which
explains its popularity amongst opiate users seeking the perfect nod.

Gynera oral contraceptive review

gynera

Gynera is a brand of oral contraceptives –
otherwise known as “birth control pills” made by the pharmaceutical
group Schering AG. It contains a formulation of Gestodene 0.075 mg and Ethinylestradiol 0.03 mg combined in a single pill.

gynera contents

Gynera comes in a 21 tablet blister pack format and retails for RM
24 per box. That slightly works out to RM 1 per day since oral
contraceptives are meant to be taken on a daily basis, preferably at
the same time each day. It’s cheaper than my daily benzodiazepine dose,
that’s for sure. ;)

gynera pills

Gynera has a day-of-the-week foil printed at the back of the blister
pack for an easy dosage guide. The official recommendation is three
weeks on the pill and one week off, but some people I know have taken
it for months without a break. *shrugs*

Personally, I have never menstruated while on Gynera. It effectively
prevented ovulation and thus, unintended reproduction during sexual
congress. I give it two thumbs up!

I’m male though, so perhaps Gynera really wasn’t necessary at all since I’ve never menstruated in my entire life. ;)

P/S – This is a gag post, for those who didn’t get it. Gynera seems to work for a lot of people though…

However, I did take one pill coz someone dared me to. ;)

The Royal London Circus 2006

royal london circus

The Royal London Circus came back to Malaysia again
and is doing a tour of the major cities in Sarawak. I caught the show
in Sibu, where it is still currently running at the Old Airport (near
UCS new campus).

royal london circus ticket office

The big top for The Royal London Circus 2006 is set up at the old
airport of Sibu and tickets go for RM 25, RM 35, and RM 55 for Class C,
Class B, and Class A seating respectively. I got two tickets of the
Class A seats for RM 110. Class A seats are closest to the circus ring.

royal london circus tickets

The Royal London Circus holds a lot of fond memories for me – I’ve
been to the show three times in my life (counting this one). The first
one was during my childhood – my dad took me to watch the late night
show when I was 5 years old and the second time was when I was 13 – I
went to watch a couple of shows when The Royal London Circus were here
(free tickets).

performers arriving

This time, we caught the 2 pm show and saw some of the acrobats from
China arriving with their Romanian coach in car before the show. I went
early with my gf to get prime seats so I could take videos and photos.
It turns out that we didn’t have to worry coz practically no one went
for the RM 55 tickets, preferring the back seats, so we had pretty much
free reign in the Class A area.

royal london circus entrance

The Royal London Circus big top is enclosed in a sealed camp which
has toilet amenities as well as food and snacks – classic circus fare
like popcorn and pink cotton candy. There are some mildly amusing
quotes carved into blocks of wood near the concessions area with
phrases like “All who spend money here goes to heaven. The more you
spend the closer you get to heaven!!!” and “I don’t like to commit
myself about heaven and hell – you see, I have friends in both places”
a little further down.

food coupon

The food sold inside The Royal London Circus compound requires food
coupons to purchase. The food coupons are purchased at face value and
can be redeemed at any of the food stands. One bottle of mineral water
costs RM 3 and the same goes for popcorn and cotton candy. Strangely
enough, there were vendors inside the big top during the show which
sells the same items for cash.

big top

The Royal London Circus seems to have a smaller big top this time,
with different entrances on one facade leading towards the three
different seating areas. Class C tickets are to the back and barricaded
away from the main action while Class B tickets are behind the Class A
area and is cordoned off with latch doors. Class A spans the sides of
the circus performer’s entrance and the front of the stage.

monkey cage

The Royal London Circus also has animals on show outside the big top
to entertain patrons before the show starts. The animals are show
animals it seems like the animals are rotated coz I saw small monkeys
in cage before we went in and ponies when the show was over.

stage front

The big top opens at around 1:30 pm and we went inside to get good
seats – I sat directly in front of the stage, and the circus ring was
close enough to touch if one reaches out with the fingers. My gf was
apprehensive about stampeding circus animals at this proximity but I
told her nothing bigger than an elephant is on the show (which was
true). ;)

circus stage

The Royal London Circus has a stage which consists of one ring – the
main circus performing area and a live band setup with drum kits and
all at the top, elevated from the circus ring. The entire setup is
colored a cheerful red with white drapes hanging down (which are used
for a circus act, as we found out) and the famed Sphere of Terror – a
spherical locked cage – prominently displayed on one side.

popcorn

The Royal London Circus popcorn goes for RM 3 inside the ring (same
price but paid with cash) and it’s a good thing they sold food inside
the circus ring coz I ate quite a lot of stuff from popcorn to sodas to
burgers. Classic circus fare, ya know, you gotta partake it in for the
full experience. ;)

clown start

The Royal London Circus show started with a familiar
clown/ringleader that seems to have been in the last two show I’ve been
– he’s a rather old (but grandfatherly) British chap, and a little too
skinny for a clown. The first routine in the circus introduces the
clown (which also acts as the ringleader) waking up from a slumber…

…and putting on his clothes…

china hats

The three Chinese acrobats from China started off the show with a
funny three hat juggling act. It’s funnier than it sounds; you really
have to watch this one to appreciate the slapstick humor. It’s a
combination of choreography and over the top facial expressions that
makes this act work.

arabian dance

The next circus act is the obligatory Arabian dance by sharp
featured, skimpily dressed Caucasian females. It has been a Royal
London Circus tradition to have an act like this interspaced throughout
the show and I swear I can recognize some of the women from a Can Can
dance routine back when I was 13.

drape dance

The white drapes at the back of the circus ring mentioned previously
was used as a prop for the next act – it was the most beautiful and
moving performance in the entire lineup. The performance was done by a
pair fusing elements of acrobatics and ballet with choreography,
defying gravity by moving fluidly through the air using just the cloth
drapes…an absolutely delightful and charming performance.

poodle show

There was also a poodle performance entailing simple arithmetic done
by the trained dogs through barking and the act also has the dogs
running around and jumping through hoops and standing on chairs.

elephant act

The next performance is also animal related – it’s the elephant! The
elephant was brought in by two Indian handlers and the chained animal
was made to do some tricks around the ring.

elephant lift

The act had the elephant lifting up one of the handlers at one point and they also got the pachyderm to play ball.

circus photo

The intermission came at this point and there were photo ops with
the elephant and also a pony. I went for the elephant. It cost me RM 15
to sit on the elephant and I felt sorry for the big dude, he has really
sad eyes (it’s a he, I looked) and a bony body.

mexican act

The Royal London Circus started the second act with acrobats from
Mexico in a double ring contraption that works by having both of them
standing inside the respective rings and moving them around.

mexican blindfold

One of the circus performers was blindfolded and then started moving
around the inner ring while his partner stepped out and walked on the
contraption itself. It was entertaining, but it made me dizzy.

The pretty kicking ponies came out next…

…followed by more pretty kicking ponies, sorry, I mean performers. ;)

chinese trio

The Chinese trio came out with another slapstick humor act after
that. I noticed that one of them had a perforation in his suit, right
where his crotch was, and I pointed that out to my girlfriend. That was
pretty funny. ;)

romanian ballet

The dreamy ethereal ballet dancer from Romania came out next to do an elegant routine, which I enjoyed tremendously.

romanian trapeze

This performance also included a trapeze act with her partner in addition to the choreographed gymnastics.

sphere of terror setup

The Sphere of Terror was set up to mark the end of the show. There
were four motorcycles in total revving their engines and going around
the metal sphere in carefully choreographed loops.

sphere of terror

It’s another cliche circus act, but the crowd seems to like it.

royal london circus end

The Royal London Circus cast and crew came out for an encore after
that, marking the end of the show. It lasted a good 2 1/2 hours in
total and it was pretty entertaining and nostalgic to watch.

The Royal London Circus is a great circus act – it
may have been trimmed down in terms of cast and acts since its
inception but it’s still entertaining as always.

The Weet-Bix guide to constipation relief

weet bix cereal

Weet-Bix is an Australian cereal that comes in the
form of unsweetened 97% whole grain biscuits. I used to hate the stuff
when I was a kid, but strangely enough, love it to bits now. I can eat
it for breakfast, lunch and dinner and I suggest you do the same to
combat opiate induced constipation.

weet bix cereal prep

The Weet-Bix guide to constipation can resolve any constipation problems after a couple of days on this diet. You will require:

1. Weet-Bix cereal
2. Fresh milk
3. Swiss muesli (optional)

Preparation:

weet bix cereal biscuits

1. Use a large cereal bowl and fill it up with four (4) Weet-Bix biscuits

weet bix cereal muesli

2. Pour Swiss muesli over it until cereal bowl is nearly full

weet bix cereal layer

3. Take two (2) more Weet-Bix biscuits and layer it on top

weet bix cereal milk

4. Fill bowl with fresh milk

weet bix cereal done

The Swiss muesli I use has dried fruits, nuts, oats and bran and is
“an excellent source of fiber”. I layer it with the Weet-Bix for taste
and texture (the fruits adds natural sweetness and the oats and nuts
gives it the texture) as well as giving the mixture additional fiber.

weet bix cereal end

The amount of fresh milk to add is to taste – add more if you like
wet mushy cereal, add less if you like oatmeal consistency cereal. Soy
milk can be substituted on a 1:1 ratio with milk for a more watery
consistency.

It really is an excellent source of fiber (and it’s delicious too).
You should be able to resolve any opiate induced constipation problems
after several days on the Weet-Bix muesli diet. :)

SugarBun Chicken Burger @ RM 1.91

sugarbun chicken burger outlet

SugarBun came out with a new burger for the Gawai holidays – Chicken Burger for RM 1.91.
The burger is available for a limited time only and today is the last
day it’s available for sale. I checked it out just now before catching
X-Men III.

sugarbun chicken burger promo

Chicken Burger retails for the low price of RM 1.91 for the period
spanning from the 27th of May to the 4th of June. It’s meant to target
the Gawai (local harvest festival) celebrations, which is also the
reason I’m back in Sibu – the long holidays.

sugarbun chicken burger inside

SugarBun constantly adds new items to its remarkable menu (which now
includes three layer coffee) to test the market and the items gets
incorporated into the permanent menu (which consists of 151 items to
date) if there is sufficient market demand.

sugarbun chicken burger meal

I ordered two Chicken Burgers as well as three pieces of chicken
(they have really good fried chicken) for lunch since we had about an
hour to kill before the movie starts. The tea is my girlfriend’s drink
– I don’t like hot drinks.

sugarbun chicken burger

This is what the Chicken Burger looks like – it has a sizable patty,
a very generous amount of chicken for an RM 1.91 burger. I didn’t think
much of it at first glance since it just looks like a standard chicken
burger.

sugarbun chicken burger bite

However, the Chicken Burger surprised me with the topping – it has
the coleslaw mix and cucumbers that is a signature SugarBun burger
topping! It goes really well with their fish burger and it seems that
the coleslaw mix goes well with anything coz it tastes good with
chicken as well.

SugarBun Chicken Burger is great value at RM 1.91
per burger. SugarBun may be the poor man’s McDonald’s but it’s the very
first fast food joint we had over here in Sibu and besides…

sixthseal.com owns shares in SugarBun Berhad. ;)
