My Monday's Mistake

Waking up with blurry eyes this morning... thought of  taking EL (emergency leave) due to staying up to watch badminton till nearly 1am... cheering for the Koreans...

Ok, this post is not about badminton...It is about my carelessness ....

It is my turn to take my girl and her friend to school.. sort of car pool since we are staying along the same row...

The thing is...my girl told me that she would skipped school today and I quickly reminded her to inform her friend so that her mum will take her to school instead.... After that, I totally forgot all about it because the badminton finals were occupying my mind last night... right?

This morning at 7.10am...my handphone rang.... OH DEAR... I was thinking, "don't tell me the poor girl doesn't know??"

True enough, her friend's mother called me and asked WHY... Why.... why didn't I inform her that I wasn't taking her daughter to school .......etc..etc.....

Gosh, I apologised profusely to her... "so sorry...so sorry... my girl had sms-ed your girl... so naturally I thought she knows.... "   but it seems her daughter didn't know because she never checked her handphone for the whole evening... or maybe she had missed it ....

Sigh... what a blunder.... I was feeling so bad.. there was nothing I could do except to keep on apologising.... I assured her that next time I will contact her directly if there's any changes ....

Still feeling bad on the way to work, I sms-ed her mother again... "So sorry, my mistake... I should have followed up with you..." and then she replied that she was sorry for losing her cool...

Well, I can understand..which mum wouldn't feel angry... right?  If my girl is left on the lurch and then going to school late, I would lose my cool too.....

This is really a good lesson for me to learn.... I shall not concentrate on other unimportant things from now on... those around me are more important....

Blogging, move aside...please....

Lee Chong Wei, I "Lai" U

Lee Chong Wei, I blame u....

After church last night, I went to meet up with some of my ex-classmates in Gourmet Square, Ipoh Garden, it was around 10pm then... knowing very well, badminton French Open semi finals started around 7.30pm, I wouldn't make it in time to watch Lee Chong Wei play... never mind, sacrifice.....

Anyway, our gathering dispersed around 11.15pm....  Upon reaching home, first thing I did was to on my PC to tune to tournamentsoftware for the results.... I was expecting to see Chen Long as the winner to the finals today... but lo and behold.... there are no results shown yet... and THAT MEANS.. CHEN LONG AND LEE CHONG WEI were still playing in the court!!

Quickly ran down to tune in Astro 811... YES!!!  They were still playing their hearts out at 19-19 in the first game!  My heart beat very fast....................

Being a multi tasker, I logged in to Facebook at the same time, someone chatted me up talking about badminton... he called me a Crazy Fan..............yeah, yeah....call me junkie fan also never mind.. I think I live up to that name alright!  Especially last night, I watched till 12.30pm............ and knocked out after that....

When I woke up this morning and saw myself in the mirror, I was horrified!

In the midst of the excitement last night, I forgot to WASH MY FACE ... I slept with the make-up still plastered on my face!!  (first time in my life, I forgot to wash face!)

Aiyoh... I think AGELESS also cannot help me to look young if I continue to be a badminton junkie!!

er.. by the way, Lee Chong Wei won against Chen Long last night..... worth staying up to watch, right?  Hope he wins tonight!  Lee Chong Wei, I still "lai" you..... 

10.56pm.. latest update.. Lee Chong Wei won!!

Char Yuen In Kampar 36 Stalls

Continuation from my previous Kampar post.... after our lunch, we walked around the town to look for "char yuen." (fried balls) A friend told us that there is one famous stall selling "fried balls" and asked us to buy back for her.


walking and asking around... for "char yuen"

the old bus station...

passed by an old shopping store..

and finally we found them!

One auntie told us that this place is called "36 stalls"


there are 36 stalls here...

and we stopped at where the crowd was....

so this is the stall that sells "char yuen"
I smelled Laksa too.. but we were too full to try...

opted for a bowl of ice kacang instead...


and these are Char Yuen !!
(fried balls)
and you know how much they cost???
You won't believe it..
They only cost 10 sen each!!
(usd 3 cents)
GOSH... talking about cheap.....
never heard of 10 sen food for so long already!

Happy Deepavali And Kampar Curry Bread

Happy Deepavali to all Hindus...

As for me and my friends, we celebrated our "public holiday" by driving a 45 minutes journey to Kampar.... for Lunch!

We were not sure of which shop to go to... ended up in Kam Ling Restaurant...

behind the Main Road...

it was quite empty when we entered..
only two tables were occupied ...

happily we settled down there and ordered our food..
BUT...
after waiting for half hour,
no food came out at all.....
the other customers from the two tables left in a huff!
Feeling something very wrong, we also left after paying for our drinks!

Later we found out that there was a crowd in the same restaurant
but situated next door only!

a Posh-er Kam Ling Restaurant...
It was crowded inside... no wonder they had no time to serve us!

We were very hungry by then...
and we ended up in Yau Kee Restaurant instead...

just along the same road with Kam Ling Restaurant...

2 shop lots, one with air con and one without....

they sell assorted biscuits....

and of course their popular and famous Curry Chicken Bread!

we ordered a "S" size one... for 3 of us...

within 5 minutes, this was led on the table...
and being "operated on" too....

done by the waitress... not us!

this is the way of cutting up their Curry Bread...

There it goes... finally......
the curry chicken was still hot inside the bread...

we were so hungry...that it was finished within minutes!

Feeling notfull enough, we ordered another plate of
fried yee mee, their signature dish..
but unfortunately, it was too "saltish"
we commented about it to the "captain"
and they "re-cook" them again...
but then, it has no more "oomph" when it was served...

For these two dishes, it cost RM40.60 ($13.00usd)
which I think is overpriced.... definitely...


tomorrow.... round the town....

Kuala Sepetang Fishing Village

On a sunny Saturday afternoon, we decided to have our lunch cum dinner in Kuala Sepetang. Why lunch cum dinner? I do not know what it is called because by the time we reached this place, it was almost 4pm....

We did not want to go during dinner time because by then, the crowd would be there and furthermore the road going in is quite jammed up because of the night market. (pasar malam) So the best time is to go around this time... between (4-6pm)

narrow road leading into the jetty..

slight drizzle when we reached...

While waiting for the food to come, I went round clicking here and there... I guess some of you have seen these before... this is a very familiar scene when you are sitting on top and the boats are just below....

real typical fishing jetty...

back from fishing...

fishermen's livelihood is here...

can see the sunset if we stay long enough...

love watching this scenery...

and then SUDDENLY...

something red was put on our table! :)

we ordered "Yim Kook Hai"
(Steamed salty crabs)

followed by a plate of noodles..
not so nice.. no Wok smell...

but this Tong Oh was very good.. fresh and young..

then lastly and not least.. we ordered a piece of fishlet..

steamed teochiew style...
it came out very nice.. not overcooked at all..
with the sourish sauce, it sure increased our appetite!
For these dishes, it came to RM62 ($20usd)
I think it is reasonable... right?
