My girlfriend is always getting fleeced by the nasi kandar people. I have a very strong suspicion they don’t like her very much. ;) She got charged RM 32 for this:
Nasi briyani (a type of flavored rice) Ayam goreng (fried chicken – drumstick) Sotong goreng (fried squid) Daging lembu rendang (beef rendang) Telur (hard boiled egg) Sayur (vegetables)
I order the same stuff (with kuah campur – mixed gravy) and I get it for RM 13.50 – RM 15 depending on who’s serving the stuff. There this guy who’s fascinated by my surface bar piercings and tends to charges me less.
The pricing of nasi kandar here is so arbitrary sometimes…
Pizza Uno is located at Centerpoint PJ, the center of the world. I went to Pizza Uno last night with Yee Hou, Suanie, Zoe, and Hannah. BTW, does Hannah have a blog?
This is Sangria (RM 34), which according to the menu is a mixture of fruit juices, wine and brandy. The four of us had this, I won’t say which four coz one person is a minor. :p
Zoe and Hannah shared the Alla Carbonara (RM 22). I went for the Ravioli with Chicken and Mushroom Stuffing (RM 24) which is only available during weekends. Absolutely fabulous! Suanie had the Deep Fried Whole Spring Chicken (RM 26), described as a tender young bird. Yee Hou went for the Aussie Pizza (RM 32), which is rather authentic – it has egg on top.
This chicken looks a bit obscene with its legs spread wide open like this.
This is the first time I’ve seen people take off their tongue piercings to eat – Zoe and Hannah does that.
Lainie joined us later and had the Oven Baked Chicken (RM 24). She didn’t even finish it.
Here’s an anecdote from the night – some poor old soul came in and asked us for money for food. I offered her my slice of pizza but she declined. It seems that she prefers cold, hard cash. Heh!
The Pizza Uno manager on duty chased her away politely after that – “Auntie, can you please not bother the customers?”. I thought that was pretty funny.
The drawing of the four (with tongue piercings).
This is the Panna Cotta (RM 8) we had for dessert. I forgot to bring my digicam, but lucky for me, Suanie practically lives at the mall (or close enough anyway) so all photos here – courtesy of her digicam. Thanks Suan! :)
It’s not everyday you get the honor of being fed by Zoe. ;)
Restauran Ikan Bakar Fend is a very popular ikan bakar (BBQ fish) place at SS6 in Petaling Jaya. It’s my second time there – it’s always packed with the lunchtime crowd but for some strange reason the planets aligned and our entire floor in the office converged at the place at 12:30 pm, taking up approximately 8 tables.
The place has a very simple setup – the BBQ pit is located outside and churns out an impressive array of stingray, various fishes and assorted marine life for the rapid clientele turnover.
Restauran Ikan Bakar Fend works on a trust system – you pick and choose what you want. You recite what you ate at the counter after the meal and they charge you accordingly. The place is remarkably clean for such a messy meal.
The place also serves ulam for a touch of authenticity.
The meal comes in a set – there’s steamed rice and two sauces and you pick the type of fish you want to add on to it. I had ikan kembung (some kind of local fish) and ikan pari (stingray) as well as two different types of ulam.
TTL shows us how ulam is meant to be eaten. There are no complicated rituals or arcane incantations, just some dexterous finger action.
The stalk of the vegetable is supposed to be twisted and folded into a compact and neat bite-sized structure.
It is then dipped into sauce…
…and eaten. I still can’t do the folding thing right so I’m going to get TTL to fold it for me when I go again. ;)
Restauran Ikan Bakar Fend is a great place to head to if you’re hankering for some ikan bakar. It’s a testament to the popularity of the place that they don’t require a proper signboard – the place uses a canvas signboard tied down with rope, and it’s been in operation for over a year!
It’s not very easy to find though so here’s Google Maps to the rescue!
I went to KY’s notorious Christmas Eve party on the 24th. We’re each supposed to buy a gift that is wearable and some people took (very) liberal interpretations of this, much to my dismay (explain later).
Reta got a scarf. Lucky. I got a condom, it was from Cindy and I wore it. :P
Camwhoring with Cindy has been proven to increase your saham by 42%. Seriously.
Which is why I’m doing it again.
Rachel, that’s illegal!
I partook in the Tuborg Challenge as well…
…and did it better the second time. :)
Siao Ling is the (wo)man. Must suck up to her. She’s like the Brand Executive of the beer company. No Siao Ling, for the record, that’s not why I was nice to you, I would be nice to you regardless of who you are.
There are many other photos (some very, very incriminating), which shall not be posted up on sixthseal.com. There are other channels to procure said photos if you’re so inclined – you just have to know where to look. ;)
Comment if I haven’t linked you, I drank too much to remember everyone. Sorry!
My memory failed me at approximately 0200 hours. I don’t even remember going for supper and it was 5 am when I got home, thanks to Christopher Tock, Yee Hou, Nicholas, Gareth, Simon and Zoe who safely brought me home. Thanks all! =D
You know it’s a great party when the police turns up…twice. ;)
I have known this for ages. I know that once I start drinking, I usually don’t stop until I pass out. In the process, I do stupid stuff and generally make a fool out of myself. This happens from the moment I get intoxicated and ends when I pass out.
After two infamous instances of passing out this year – once in Singapore and once during Christmas Eve – not to mention countless other occasions in Sibu, I have decided to make like DiGi…Time to change! I will not drink alcohol (not even beer) for the entire month of January. It will be NO ALCOHOL MONTH as one of my co-workers puts it.
I have attended AA/NA sessions in the past so in the sprit (no pun intended) of the group, I humbly seek forgiveness from everyone I have hurt or offended while drinking.
…forget the rest, the best coverage of the event is at sixthseal.com
I arrived at DXO at approximately 6 pm.
Camwhored for about 30 minutes…
…and promptly passed out on the couch. This photo was taken by proxy, and most didn’t turn out well coz Eiling is not familiar with my digicam.
I was there in body, but not in spirit. Pun intended.
I’m very sorry Nuffnang!
I was there as Osama bin Laden under custody, which is why I’m wearing the US-issue flak jacket for protection instead of my usual camouflage gear. I was blindfolded and had my hands tied behind my back to boot. The interrogation process quite appalling too and I think they slipped something into my drink…
…which was why I passed out.
I put all blame on the people who took me into custody while en-route to Guatemala Bay. :p
Next up: Food posts from Singapore trip and the bus ride home with the Nuffies.
I work long hours and post a new update every day after work so it’s hard for me to continue HDS. I have also taken the long time involved in completing it (1 year!!!) into consideration, so I have decided to…
JENG JENG JENG
I’ve gotten someone to do all my data entry for full integration into the sixthseal.com database for the posts from April 2002 – November 2006 and from her pace, I estimate she’ll be done by middle of January 2009.
Her user name has been applied with liberal layers of mosaic since I used her real name. The posts will be under “Poh Huai Bin” though, as opposed to “Huai Bin” which is my account. I promised her a huge bonus for early completion. :)
The full sixthseal.com will be up on the 15th!
Pinky said I spoil the market and paid too much to get it done, but I think it’s worth it lor coz it’s a very tedious task. It’s been so long and I want my blog to be fully up and searchable e.g. integrated into the CMS.
The phoenix rises again 15th January 2009. =D
Guess how much I’m paying to outsource this? How much would you be willing to do it for?
I have been reading about Berry and Lemon’s dismal travel repertoire on their blog. I come from Sarawak so it’s something akin to heresy to hear that they haven’t been to East Malaysia before this. Thus, I took it upon myself to take them on my trip to Cameron Highlands. It’s a double date of sorts – me and my girlfriend and the two lovebirds (loveberries?).
I was browsing through Berry and Lemon’s blog and read about the Ribena with Lemon Greatest Love contest they’re running and decided to join in the fun. I figured Cameron Highlands would be the perfect place to shoot the photos for the “Most Romantic” category so I loaded my car boot with heaps of Ribena with Lemon and drove up.
The Ribena with Lemon Greatest Love contest is separated into two categories – “The Greatest Lover” is judged with the most Ribena with Lemon bottles or mobile packs in a single picture while “Most Romantic” is judged with the most creative entry featuring at least one Ribena with Lemon bottle or mobile pack in the most romantic manner possible.
To increase my chances, I decided to join both. ;) Most Romantic
This was taken at Bala’s Chalet @ Cameron Highlands where we stayed.
The place has a really nice garden, very Tudor style English ambiance.
It’s supposed to show me looking affectionately at the couple (Berry and Lemon) in the garden where we had tea and scones. My purple cardigan matches the Ribena colors too. This is the one I submitted.
There is also one with the four of us – the double date. =D The Greatest Lover
My theme for this is The Godfather. The Don of Ribena with Lemon. Real power cannot be given. It must be taken. ;)
I joined both of the contests, spending a staggering amount on Ribena with Lemon bottles. I went to Giant Mall to purchase a box of Ribena with Lemon but they didn’t have any in stock so I just grabbed whatever I could off the shelves and headed over to 7-Eleven, took whatever they had and proceeded to a smaller Giant (pun not intended) and swiped all their Ribena with Lemon bottles.
The Ribena with Lemon Greatest Love Contest is open until the 20th of December, 2008. You can join both categories and submit as many photos as you want. However, you’re only entitled to win from one category. The prizes are:
The Greatest Lover Category
The Most Romantic Category
I am interested in snagging the Dell Notebook from either category. There is a recent spate of…domestic disputes, shall we say, over the use of the only notebook in our condo. I need it to update my blog and my girlfriend wants to watch HK drama series on it.
I’m sure Berry and Lemon can understand, and for the sake of love, take our predicament into consideration when judging the entries. ;)

Okay, put on your scary faces Ginny and Nath, I’m taking all you down with me. Explosive duct (grenade) taped (stuck) in my mouth, and nothing’s gonna change my mind. I won’t listen…to anyone’s last words. There’s nothing left for you to say, coz soon you’ll be dead anyway. ;)
