Food: Saisaki Japanese Buffet Dinner @ Wisma UOA II

Image
Can you believe it? The last time I went to Saisaki was about 3 years ago during Ruh's birthday (link). So finally, my family visited Saisaki again this time as my birthday dinner. I got to eat free, you see :P

Nothing's really changed there. In fact, we were seated the very same place that we sat 3 years ago. In the building, the path leading towards Saisaki was still deserted, like 3 years ago but inside Saisaki, everyone was alive. In fact, I think Saisaki was the only store that was still open at 7pm and later.

I'll let your imagination run with food pictures :)





I must say, the sushi were impressive. Quite a number of variety. They even have smoked salmon sushi, which was really good. I wished they serve smoked salmon sashimi though. They also have a lot of other kinds of sushis that I have never seen before. Improvised-kind of sushis. It kinda taste weird though, even from the looks of it. So.. I passed.




Tempuras were awesome awesome. Need I say more? They also had es…

Video of the Week: Lagu Tema - Janji Ditepati (Hari Merdeka ke-55)

Image
This video had got to be the video of the week. Most Malaysians (who are not katak bawah tempurung) would know how much political agenda does this song contain. And to make it the Merdeka theme song for this year leaves all of us..disgusted.

I mean we all have no problems with Jalur Gemilang. No problems with Keranamu Malaysia. And no problems with other 'famous' Merdeka anthems like Tanggal 31. But this? If BN wants this song to be their anthem, so be it. But don't make it a Merdeka song and force all students and Malaysians to sing along.

The number of likes and dislikes for the video speaks a lot.

Deal to Steal: Gold Coast Morib Resort Water Theme Park

Image
I just came back from a short trip to Gold Coast Morib Resort with my family yesterday. So this post is going to be about my short stay at the resort. My mum bought a deal from StreetDeal about 1 to 2 months ago. RM180 for one room, inclusive of buffet dinner, buffet breakfast and water theme park tickets for 2 person.


The room was pretty impressive. Spacious. There's a TV. Fridge provided. Hair dryer and all the basic stuffs you need.

There's also a jacuzzi in the toilet. Ohoho. Unfortunately when I berendam in the jacuzzi after I went to the water theme park, I find that the water wasn't hot for my liking. But on the contrary, my sister thought the water was hot enough. Maybe the problem lies with the room :O


View from my room :D Yep, that's part of the theme park.
Theme park was a lil small but pretty good for a small place like that. They have about 4 different slides. And some other stuffs around. A lot of kids were around and most of the rides, kid around 5 would …

Video of the Week: 'Dark Knight Rises' Mass Shooting at Aurora, Colorado

Image
I heard the shooter is a PhD holder for neuro. What a waste. He must have gone psycho after so many years of "hardship" in studying. That's why people.. know your own capabilities. Don't push yourself too much.


Rest

It has been three emotional days for many people that I know. It's true. We always fail to appreciate people and things around us until it's gone. Don't take people around you for granted....

Someone who never fails to pull my legs every Sunday during service. Joker. Always initiates. A great example to many. A great father to many. A fighter. You are no longer bounded in pain, free from every struggle and you've gone to a better place. And you..would be dearly missed by all..

BIGBANG Alive Galaxy Tour 27 October 2012 Malaysia - Ticket Launch & Price

Image
BIGBANG is probably the most prominent Korean boy band at the moment. I've always thought it would be Super Junior or 2PM but looks like it's not. No doubt, Kpop is the current popular culture and being popular culture, sure there are a lot of followers, especially in Asian countries. But the Koreans are determined to break through the Hollywood market and you can see how BIGBANG slowly move into Hollywood with their involvement in MTV. Okay, I'm not the expert of the topic, obviously. If it's anyone to talk about Kpop the last would be me. XD But, I think there were an exam on Kpop I'm sure that my sisters would get an A+. Geez.

Anyhow, I've heard and saw a few videos on Kpop performances and my goodness, they are all so kua jiong. Yet, so entertaining at the same time. I mean at the moment where you have nothing to do, they are entertaining. But still doesn't interest me. I heard BIGBANG is coming to Kuala Lumpur this time around and I don&#…

Malaysian Students Allowed to Bring Handphones to School, Again.

Image
One of the news that caught my attention this week was "Students can take handphones, IT gadgets to school from 2012" (link). Man the headline sounds so familiar.. Then I remembered.


7 years ago, back in 23 December 2005, the MOE released a pekeliling to schools stating that students are allowed to bring handphones to school. But then in less than one month, on 20 January 2006, MOE decided to say that they were joking revoke the pekeliling and that students cannot bring handphones to school at all. Our government seemed so fickle-minded. Changing their minds in just less than a month for such a major decision. At least that is what I think.

Of course back then in 2006, there were huge debate between the pros and cons of bringing handphones to school. Most adults (parents and educators) had strong opinions on this issue and also some students (I read a news where head prefects were interviewed and shared their opinion) had their say. Back then social media wasn't that pop…

Sam Tsui Someone Like You, Wide Awake, Stronger

I got lifeless because holidays is here. And I kinda enjoy being lifeless. By lifeless I don't mean wasting my life away *stares* but at least I can:

1. Read up some books (finished House Rules finally!)
2. Catch the whole of Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, which only has 13 episodes :(
3. Started to watch a few episodes of Desperate Housewives and actually find it interesting :O
4. Made a few Sam Tsui "artwork"

LOL.







Okay, all looked kinda sucky actually :(
I still like the one that I did for Just A Dream the best :D

McDonald's Malaysia Limited Edition Coca Cola Glass, 2012 London Olympics Games Set

McDonald's Malaysia just released the Coca Cola glass that commemorates London Olympics 2012 that last week. It comes free with every purchase of McDonald's meal AND Sundae/Mcflurry. The Coca Cola glass comes in 6 colors and McDonald's is only releasing it one by one by weeks.

Many thanks to ChurpChurp for allowing me to bring this back home and add it into my collection. You can try bringing back one yourself! Go to their website and search their blog and find out how :) Or simply leave a comment I'll gladly share with you.

Nineteen

Image
Nineteen! 

I was officially nineteen yesterday. Honestly I had no feelings. I am SO glad last week went by fast enough. I was going to die of the madness of things that were about to happen last weekend. Let's start of with Saturday: exam in the morning, sister's birthday part 1 the next day, exam the next morning, then sister's birthday part 2 the same night, then exam again the following morning. Did you get confused? Haha.

But yes, HOLIDAYS are here! And I am SO glad again. :P


Birthday was simple. Dinner with friends. Good friends who remembered without needing Facebook's birthday reminder and took time off their busy schedule to have a simple dinner out together and treat you.


Yuck. My hair. LOL..


Friends who you grew up with who took the time to make something that you can relate to. You find yourself smiling when you see it and when you read the messages, you smile goes from ear to ear. You appreciate all of them for their effort for making simple things like car…

Un-unified.

My unifi is currently down so I have limited access to internet. I'm still surviving. I missed VOTW :(

Semester break is here! I'm very excited :)

I'll be back soon, with updates.

P/S: I'm so surprised the stats didn't drop drastically despite the lack of updates.

Video of The Week: Berlin's Bottles Only Quintet

Image
Saw this on the news the other day.


"Five young men from Berlin make empty bottles sing: Frank, Fritze, Endie, Peter and Moehre only think about one thing when drinking a bottle of beer: how will the bottle sound afterwards?
The so called "GlassBlowSing-Quintet" relies enteirely on empty bottles made of glass or plastic for instruments.

Fly FM's Ben Jern and Phat Fabes Make Jokes About Cats and Monkeys?

Update 3.23 pm, 4/7/2012: I suggest you read with an open mind, if not, you can choose to leave. 

Tada! I'm predicting that this news would go viral for awhile on Facebook as social media users start to flood Fly FM's page with how frustrated and disgusted they were about Ben and Phat Fabes' joke about cats and monkeys.

I didn't listen for myself what joke did they particularly made but from what I read, the joke revolves around monkeys and then one caller called in and talked about how she ran over a cat and they started to make jokes out of it too.

Many people had already written how furious they are over jokes that they made and called Ben and Phat Fabes as "ignorant", "insensitive", "cruel", "sick" and other words along that line. Many criticized them because there are many youths who are listening to the radio station and they should have educated public to love animals instead of making jokes. My question is : - do they exp…

Gotye Shot Himself in the Head? Is Gotye Dead?

Image
News is buzzing. According to this report from CNN iReport, Gotye is dead at the age of 32 (link).



Don't know whether it's a hoax or not but do bear in mind that "@cnnireport is "citizen journalism", public can post stuff and often not verified by @cnnbrk" - quoted from twitter.



*edit: Gotye is NOT dead (: and the report from CNN iReport has also been removed :)
