My Gross Post (Not For The Weak Hearted)

In my previous post, I blogged about eating mangosteens...In this post I will blog about the outcome of eating too much mangosteens... hahahaa...

I think I took around 10 mangosteens or a bit more .. not sure exactly how much I took and after taking that amount and 2 pieces of agar agar, I began to feel a bit "uneasy"... Uneasy in terms of headache and a bit of giddiness.  Then I prepared a hot drink of oats to drink... and that was it...

After work, I quickly went for an early dinner... took a big bowl of noodles and a glass of fresh soursop... During the evening, my shoulders felt like very "heavy".... and when I pressed them, I burped... Chinese says "Wind" (foong)

To release the "wind" from the body, my sister is very "lar sau one" (expert)... she used the old traditional way of releasing the "extra wind" by using a ceremic spoon and "wind ointment" (minyak angin) ... On and On, she "scraped" and "scraped" on my back starting with the neck and shoulders....
She exclaimed after a few strokes on my left shoulder...
'JUST LOOK AT THIS!  TERRIBLE WIND WITHIN YOU!"
My right shoulder was bad too but not as bad as the left...
No, I did not feel any pain at all...
Instead it was a BIG relief...
My headache was gone after the "scraping" and many more BURPS!
It works!
Believe it or not.....

Moral of the story:  
Mangosteens cannot be taken a lot at one time.. 
Best taken after a bout of Durians!

  5. Not gross at all. with your sister around you don't have to worry about too much wind!

  6. Alamak, that shows how heaty your body is. Maybe due to eating too much durian and the crazy hot weather. You should have drunk some salt water after each durian session.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
