Joleen's Birthday Celebration @ The Ship @ Uptown PJ @ 06/10/2009

What's your favorite restaurant for western food in town? For me, I don't have any specific in mind. I heard a lot of positive comments about The Ship since ages ago. So I decided to celebrate Joleen's birthday in this very restaurant. To be honest, though it's been famous since ages ago, but it's my 1st try LOL..paiseh!

The birthday gal with a happy smile =)..ahh..the white balance/colour is a bit off..

Salad came with the sizzling garlic premium tiger prawns..nothing special..

Sizzling Garlic Premium Tiger Prawns - Specially marinated giant prawns garnished with ginger garlic gravy on a sizzling plate, served with french fries, corn on cob and a bowl of salad. The tiger prawns were fresh, juicy and delicious, you won't stop slurping the sauce once you have tasted it and yes, Joleen finished the sauce :P

Mixed Grill - A combination of chicken, beef, lamb, turkey bacon, sausage and fried egg, served with french fries and vegetables. For a meat lover like me, this is just perfect for me lol. Looks oily but when you tried it, you won't stop eating it. Everything is just fine except the beef, I did order medium-well cook but it just too hard to chew...

Excuse me captain? lol

Joleen asked me to act cute, so I did it lol

Funny pose hahaha..

Birthday gal & me...

Lomo feel...

The Ship is definitely a great place for western food. For me, I still prefer Chilis since I'm a poor guy :(. If your budget allows, there is no regret of trying The Ship =)

Dinner @ Restoran Tak Fok HK Seafood @ Desa Aman Puri, Kepong @ 05/10/2009

What's your favorite restaurant of eating crabs? For my family, their favorite restaurant would be Restoran Tak Fok HK Seafood located in Desa Aman Puri @ Kepong.

Years ago, this restaurant was famous of its RM18 per KG crab. Though the price of the crab already increased up to RM20-RM22 per KG, but you still can see the place is getting crowded started from 6pm onwards.

Buns - a must have dish that you need to order if you happen to try in this restaurant, you will know the reason after you ordered the crabs.

Braised Pork Belly - Some people don't like it, most probably because it's oily and its fat? Well for me, I just love it. You can just eat like that, or dip the sauce with the buns..yummy..

Fu Chow Tau Fu - another signature dish of the restaurant? Not sure about it. What I'm sure is it's really tasty and crispy, I missed it very much :D

Vege - I guess it is also another must have dish since then table is full of meats lol

Boss of the day - Cheese Crab. Simply juicy, cheap and nice, the sauce is awesome. Here you can see why the buns are useful for the crabs here ^^

2nd Boss - Salted Egg Crabs. Holy shit, look at the eggs, how can u NOT to try it? Why can't? You will know after you tried it, let me know the answer will ya?

My 2 sisters =)

Everybody was too busy to enjoy the food..

Dad, mom, and bro ^^

Sis, nephew, bro-in-law, and niece

If you like to eat crabs, this place is definately the right place for you ^^. Is RM20 per KG consider cheap in town? I'm not sure about it lol. Anyway, I heard there is another branch in Bandar Putri, Puchong, what the hell are you waiting for?

Lunch @ Purple Cane Tea Restaurant @ 27/09/2009

Few months ago, my sis invited us to Purple Cane Tea Restaurant for lunch. She told me that all the dishes are cooked with tea. Sweet, why don't give it a try since I wondered the taste of the food. The restaurant is located @ Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall @ Maharajalera, not hard to find though.

I guessed that time was still early, still not many people around.


Peanuts & anchovies, simply crispy and nice.

You are in a tea restaurant, how could you enjoy your lunch without tea?

Green Tea Rice which is not green colour lol

Stir Fried Chicken With Sweet Chili in Tea Sauce serves with Chinese Cruller lol. I love this very much, especially the sauce =)

Homemade Braised Beancurd in Tea sauce. No exception, this toufu comes with very nice "tea" sauce too.

4 in 1 Veges With Minced Pickles & Tea. Looks oily but actually it's not. Do you see 4 veges?lol

Pan Fried Egg with
Anchovies & Tea Mill. It's crispy and nice but over salty, most probably cuz of the anchovies.

Bitter Gound with Salted Egg & Tea. How is the taste when bitter meets salty? You should try it out =)

Not sure what do you call for this fish, but it's definitely can fight with other seafood restaurants.

Kids, happy 24/7 =)

Happy family =)

My family ^^

P/S: The food is very very nice, 1st attempt though, dishes cooked with tea lol, definitely will try again =)

Sg Lembing Trip @ 19/09/2009 - 21/09/2009 - Day 3

Last day of the trip, time really flied when you are on trip. Objective of the day - enjoy sunrise on the Bukit Panorama. If my memory served me right, we woke up around 3:30 am. Seriously, I never woke up so early just to visit some places, that was my 1st time. Since the hill is not far away from house, we began our journey at 4am++. When we reached the bottom of the hill, we saw bunch of people already walking up the hill. Compared with Rainbow Waterfall, this hill is much easier to walk.

There were no lighting along the path, you have to bring your own torchlight because you can't even see you own fingers when you reach the top of the hill. Reminder: There is no lighting, no toilet, no restaurant or whatsoever on the hill, so make sure you prepare well before you go. After the 45 mins walk, I felt like giving up cuz I was carrying the backpack with tripod, it's kinda heavy and tired. But then I heard 1 of the dude screamed "Dude, we almost there!". That time I felt like "omfg, are you fucking serious?

Yes, we finally did it! We reached there 5am++ the place already damn crowded, some dudes even camped here lol

I was lucky enough to fight a nice spot to setup the tripod. Damn right, that time was still dark but many camwhores already setup their tripod.

Finally, the day was getting bright, but where was the sun? Damn it! That day was too cloudy, the stupid cloud blocked the sun, sien!

After a few shots, we saw many people were disappointed of the stupid clouds and started going down the hill. While I discussing the photos with the gang, I heard people were clapping. So I turned my head up and looked at the sun, weeeee...sunshine!

YES! The egg yolk is coming out! When you saw that beautiful scene, you will feel like everything is worth it =)

The dark version.

Bright version of group photo ^^ hole? Or blue hole? lol

The cloud lied beneath me lol..

Who's there??

Is this what you call Jesus Light in photography?

Our Art Director was coaching the team how to pose..

And the result = ="

A lonely tree and a blue hole lol

Em...what was I shooting?

After a few shots, I turned my head back and wondering what they were doing. I saw a bunch of zombies excausted like hiking a 2000m mountain haha.

I ignored them and continued my shots, and I found a young potential photographer :D

Another pro photographer. I love this photo very much, should get a faster lens to blur the background ^^

Last shot before going down the hill.

A shot during the "walk-down"...

No joke, I felt like exhausted like a zombie too. We then had our breakfast, shower, and rest.

Then, we decided to go to Teluk Cempedak Beach again. While waiting the ladies packing their thing, I walked out the house and snapped some photos randomly.

Yeah, finally they have done packing wee...

Stanley was busy talking to someone..

Looks like a painting haha. Here we are again ,Teluk Cempedak Beach.

Em..last group photo of the trip?

A fly in front of the McD lol

A kid running barefoot under the hot sun, I wondered how come she didn't feel hot of the sand = ="

Panorama shot of the day =)

After had lunch @ McD, it's time to go back to KL T.T.

P/S: I was lucky to knew these crazy fellas through the trip, seriously, it was a wonderful and memorable trip. Thanks Wei Ling for the tour guide and accommodation. Thanks everyone to let me shoot 9 9, hope we have another trip soon =)
