Mobile voucher or discount

Today i just browse throught my blog, and I found out this super nice website,
<<http://www.mystyle.com.my/>> on my advertisement. This ad caught my attention as it show discount stuff, which is every gal's delight:- getting a cool deal while shopping. Hehe...

Actually I am not very sure how it works but i do get a rough idea. The process is like this, you got a sms saying that you can get a 50% off for an item at XX fashion shop. So, you went there and look for an item being offer. If the original price of this dress, for example is RM50, by showing the sms to the shopkeeper, you can actually buy the dress for RM25! Amazing is it? I had always wanted to search/look for this kind of stuff.. but i never really got any idea or source or supply.. and the only time i can get a good deal is only during mega sales, and mostly it's old stock or out-dated fashion.

Anyway, I am going to explore more abt this mobile voucher stuff. I hope you gals enjoy it too. ;)

10 min later... I just finish taking a look. And guess wat i found? haha..

Giordano
My111: Great 50% off purchase below RM200 for all items.Sms 'my111 giordano' to 33365.
My365: FREE umbrella for purchase of RM150 and above.Sms 'my365 giordano' to 33365.


I can't believe my luck. hehe.. Since I'm staying in Kuching, so I was not really expecting much as most of the offer will only be available in West M'sia. But with "The spring" (new shopping complex) coming in 10-Jan next year, I guess I will be visiting "mystyle" much more often.

Koreana - Part 2


Last night (Christmas), i went to Koreana for dinner. Since last time i forget to take the photo and the dish name, this time i do remember to take down the dish name together with the photo shots. Besides that, i did some editing with the photo to show the photo shown in the menu and the real food when it arrives.

Here it is...


Dish #1: Gal Bi Gim


Dish #2: Yakgaejang


Dish #3: Fried Mandu


And this is the side dishes yesterday. I noticed that the side dishes is different from previous visit. Apparently the dishes changed, except for the Kimchi.

Banana Split, new shop in town

Banana split, it's the new shop in town. Let me recall, if not mistaken, it's open around October. This shop is situated near Banquet, 3rd mile. This shop is non air-conditional, and looks like a normal kopitiam shop. But the food that it offers is different. As the name of the shop implies, the major food/beverage is ice-cream. However, they did offer cake and western food.

I only been there once. And my opinion, this place is so-so only. If i wanna eat nice cake, i will prefer to go to secret recipe, living room or Tom's, where the environment is much nicer, and the cake taste better. ;-)

Here are some of the photo taken there.

Koreana

Hehe... This is kind of late since i promise to write abt this since... hmm.. last month? Anyway, kind of busy that's why I dun have time to write nor update my blog. Only until i found out the different google logo that i start to write my blog.

Okie, let start with this Korean restaurant known as Koreana, which is situated opposite Hilton, on the same row as Scoops, the ice cream shop. Since this it the first time we went there, so it's kind of hard for us to locate this shop, since it's not situated near the road side where we can have a good view of it. We need to walk into the corridor and turn to a walkway.... And if u search carefully, then u will notice this small sign on top of the door... as shown in the picture below. =)

Now, let's talk abt the food. The food there in my opinion is "Not bad le" which is not what i expected as i expect the food to be not suitable for Malaysian taste. That night we order quite a lot. We order two plate of bbq meat (pork and beef) and a bowl of the korean spicy soup. And 6 plate of side dishes, which come together with the bbq dish. The typical way of eating this kind of korean dishes is:-
1) Take a piece of vegetables (leaves)

2) Put the bbq meat on top of the vege

3) Add in side dishes to boost the taste

Side dishes. (6 altogether)

4) Roll the vege and cover the meat

5) Open your mouth big big and eat it!!

6) Yummmmy..... It tastes lovely...

The food was too lovely.. i actually forgot to take photo. Only until all the dishes are done then only i remember to take the photo.

And lastly, we drink the famous beer~ SOJU, which is so famous that every korean drama that they broadcasted show the actors/actoresses drinking this. Hmmm.. the taste... i think it tastes much better than normal beer (Tiger, Calsbeirg) but it's a bit choking if you r not use to it.

Fab Race 5

Last Saturday was our company Fab Race 5. However, for me, this is only my first time since i didn't really join the race last year. Hehe.. since this is my first time, i am pretty excited about this race. And we create a super name for our team, a name that will leave a mark on everyone's mind whenever they hear abt this... our team name is "Ku Yong Mo Mo". haha.. for those of you who know the real meaning of this name, i guess all of you must be pretty shocked, right? Cuz i can remember very clearly our boss face when he finally get the meaning of our team. Lol..
The flag off started at 7am in the early morning. In order to book a good place, Cheryl actually suggest to reach office at 6.15am. Walau, i think i never woke up so early (5.30am to be exact) for ?? years.. all my life? Just to be an early bird and get a good start off.. ~_~
Well, the rest of the race is history. It's better if you can experience it yourself. Here are some of the photos taken during the game. And look at our T-shirt. It's design by me and Cheryl. Hehe...

Reaching and park our car outside the guardhouse at 6.20am. Group photo. Our Team: Team #11: Ku Yong Mo Mo


Eating donut without using hand


Crazy decoration.


Well, at least this is not too bad. The "master piece" that we made, it's going to be donated to the charity



We finish our race around 2pm and had lunch at KFC. Then we went home to rest, since night time there will be a buffer at Holiday Inn and during the dinner, the winner will be announce during that time.

So, night time, we all went at 6.30pm and reach holiday inn around 6.45pm. This is the first time i ever had a buffer at Holiday Inn. Well, another of my first. Hehe... The food there was not bad. The only problem is that there are too many ppl and it's quite hard when you try to take the food as there is a big crowd squeezing. Well, that night i didn't win any prizes nor lucky draw. Sien, so unlucky one. Nevertheless, I did had a wonderful day playing the race (a nice experience) and a very very full stomach. hehe...


Three pretty ladies...

Last but not least, our team member: Nicholas, Cheryl, Hui Sze and Ta da~ Me, Ju-Ju lie

Fantastic weekend... but now Monday blues

This weekend has been a fantastic week. Hehe.. it's been such a long time that i didn't go out and release my stress like this pass weekend. ^^

Friday
Friday night our activities starts at 10pm. At first we met at Hilton's lobby. Then we went to Scoops for an ice cream. But that night i din order normal ice cream. I ordered Cinnanom Waffle with Oreo Ice Cream. Wow.. it's really really tasty. Hehe... Unfortunately i forgotten to take any photo that night. Sorry abt that. Else i will take a shoot of that nice dish. At Scoops, "T" bought souvenir for us. Hehe.. me a necklace and dear dear a colourful bangle. =) Not bad lah... at least he still remember to bring us souvenir from Bangkok.
Then we went to Senso for a drink. This time I order Long Island Ice Tea. Cuz i remember vividly the cough sirup (Singaporean Sling), that they make fun abt. Well, it tastes just like tea.. but with a bit of alcoholic feel in it. But we din really stay long at Senso, cuz our main activity comes up after that:- Which is.... going to sing Karaoke. Yippee!!
Our first choice is THE popular pop wave... But at first i din really put much hope in, cuz that place is always fully booked and need to reserve before going during weekend. But lucky star is shinning on us that night. There's a free room!! And we went in without second thought. For the next two hours we are having the fun of our life. We are shouting, singing and dancing and giggling like small kids again. haha... it was really really fun tat night. Before heading home, we had a porridge at the famous open air. hehe...

Saturday
Since i slept at 3.30am the previous night, i wake up late on Sat morning. Nothing much going on.. except that i had plan to go play badminton in the afternoon. Hehe.. i actually played for 2 hours. No wonder my body is still aching today. ~_~
Nite time we go ate Korean Food, at Koreana. hehe.. here i manage to take some photo. Will show it in the next post. hehe.. OMG, korean food is not bad le... some more it's raining that night, so we order bbq meat and hot soup. yummy yummy... will definitely go next time. =) After that we went to watch a movie "Stardust". Hmm.. in my opinion, not a very nice movie lah.. maybe i was too cold inside, so wasn't paying much attention to the movie.

Sunday
Nothing much happen on Sunday except that i went shopping. Hehe... Cannot hold back myself. I bought a formal shirt and a lovely dress. If i got more money, i will definitely buy more. ^_*

A weekend duty from semiconductor company

Sigh~ Really sien as this weekend need to come to work. Currently sitting inside the office looking at the PC. I don't understand why semiconductor company has so many issue regarding the manufacturing. It's either the tool is down or the process is not stable, causing chaos for everyone as we try to recover from all the issues. ~_~

Many of those outside of this field always say that manufacturing job is easy... Why? It's because everything is fix already. The only thing u need to do is just monitoring. Well, it's true for other company, but not for a semiconductor company. Every month issues will pop out like pimples on a teenage guy's face. And everytime the issues is different from each other. No wonder the turn over rate for semiconductor company is higher compare to any other companies. And for those who can stay for more than 10 yrs, which i truly admire, their salary can almost touch the sky.

This is how we wear when we go inside the fab. The square black sunglasses is to protect his identity.

TAO~

Been to Tao? Well, i had been there several time. The environment there is quite cosy, like many of this similar type of get-around place that seems to be very popular in Kch. Basically the interior design of this drinking place is tied to it's name, which is Tao. Inside this shop, the decoration is mainly about Buddhisms or taoism. And there is quite a few of Buddha's statues. Here's an example of one.


Basically the shop only opens during night time. Mostly the shops sell drinks and cakes. For those who is celebrating their birthday, this shop will give a free cake if provided that you show them your IC. ^_^

Hmm.. Actually the prices there is not cheap. One cup of Ice Chocolate can costs you around RM11. However, this shop does provide you board games and card games to play with while you sit there cosily, chit chatting with your fren and sipping on a nice cup of drink.

These lanterns are located above me from where i sit. Hehe..

This view is exactly in front from where i sit. =)

The HISTORY of the middle finger

Haha.. My fren sent me an interesting email yesterday.. and i think it's educational, since it told the history of the middle finger and the real meaning of the middle finger. ^_*

Here's the history:

Before the Battle of Agincourt in 1415, the French, anticipating victory over the English, proposed to cut off the middle finger of all captured English soldiers.
Without the middle finger it would be impossible to draw the renowned English longbow and therefore they would be incapablt of fighting in the future.
This famous English longbow was made of the native English Yew tree, and the act of drawing the longbow was known as "plucking the yew" or "pluck yew".
Much to the bewilderment of the French, the English won a major upset and began mocking the French by waving their middle fingers at the defeated French, saying,
"See, we can still pluck yew!"

Since "pluck yew" is rather difficult to say, the difficult consonant cluster at the beginning has gradually changed to a labiodentals fricative "F", and thus the words often used in conjunction with the one-finger-salute!
If is because of the pheasant feathers on the arrows used with the longbow that the symbolic gesture is known as "giving the bird". It is STILL an appropriote salute to the French today.

And yew thought yew knew every plucking thing!


Oops.. The last sentence is not said by me, k? ^^

Macau RM39.99

I read in the newspaper yesterday. Airasia is introducing new flight and that flight is from Kuching (KIA) to Macau!! At the price as low as RM39.99. Wow!! This is really a very good offer. This morning a friend from Miri called me up. Asking me if i wanna go Macau for a holiday? Of course i say yes lor.. and i invite Cheryl and Nick to go along too. Hehe..

But during lunch time he feedback that the air ticket from 1-10 Oct all is booked already. The only available ticket is after 14-Oct. Well, we haven't finalised anything at the moment. But hopefully i can go Macau sight seeing and enjoying myself. Lunch time, Hui Sze and Nick talked about a hotel at Macau. Now, let me recall, I think it's call Wynn Hotel. And later in the afternoon, Hui Sze sent out an email regarding that hotel's opening ceremony. Here is it, it's superb.

The Power of ONE

19-20 Oct, I am force by my company to attend a motivational talk, the power of one given by Dato Lawrence Chan. The venue is at Camp Permai. All the previous team go to Santubong resort, only us is the "LUCKY" team.

This is the first time i went to Camp Permai. Before i go, I heard from some of my colleagues that it is surrounded by forest and there is basically no facilities since the purpose of this camp is to let the residents go back to mother nature. The first thing my colleagues warn me is that there is a lot of mosqitoes there. So, as you can imagine, i had no fancy idea about this trip, except that i don't need to work on Friday. Hehe...

So, let me show you what does Camp Permai looks like. Basically, it is like living in the forest.

This is the wooden road towards the cabins.

And there is actually beach besides it. Nevertheless, i don't really have time to go take a long luxury walk along the beach. The only time i can play at the beach is on Saturday morning during the game playing session.

The beach

This is the cabin where i stay with other colleagues, Michaelina, Yvonne and Molly. It is really like living in the urban area, there is no air-con, no telephone line and no TV. But luckily there is water heater. At least i don't have to bathe using cold water. hehe... But if i had the chance to go there next time, i would prefer to stay at the Tree House. Well, since i am living inside the forest, why not really experience how does it feels like living at a Tree House. Some more, it looks much cool... Hehe...

Our cabin, number 18. This is the view outside from our sitting room.This is the Tree House that i will want to stay "IF" i will come here to stay again.

There is a lot of physically facilities available at Camp Permai, namely, the wall climbing, kayaking, and a lot of outdoors extreme activities. Nevertheless, i only took photo of the wall climbing since the time is limited and 90% of the time there is spent in the conference room.

AJITEN

Ladies and gentlemen, this is the restaurant that i had my dinner tonight. Ajiten, located at Crown Square ground floor. Suggested by my bro to go there eat. Hehe...


This is what i ordered, Katsu Don.


Normal sushi, Ebi Maki. But not very nice in my opinion. I prefer the California Maki. Hehe..


Comparison between the Sutamina Ramen that my bro ordered compare to mine. =) And finally, curious how my little bro looks like? hehe.. Here is he... (so cute)


Sigh.. Look at my face.. Apuh, look so chubby lah... Aih.. really need to go diet liaw... ~_~

Selamat Hari Raya

Selamat Hari Raya to all Muslim Friends. Today is the first day of Malays new year... Today I went with Marcus, Nick and Cheryl to visit some of our colleagues friend. First we went to Siti house, then Azizi house.

Today weather is really really hot! Before we went to Siti house, we got stuck in the traffic jam for half an hour. And today weather is really really hot. Wah, can feel the sun burning through the shirt and scorching the skin. ~_~ Should have wear short pants but then it's a bit rude to wear short and visit ppl house.

sigh... already put on weight but still cannot control one self and still eat a lot when i go visit their house. Ate all those cakes, sweets, tidbits, and most delicious of all, the redang, curry, satay, ayam merah and the nasi briyani. Haha... I guess today i will gain 2 kg ah... OMG!! I really really need to go on diet.. starting tomorrow.. haha... tonight still plan to eat nice nice food. ;)

Sarawak LAKSA!! 1st time

Hmm... To be precise, I am 25 years 3 months and 13 days today. If I am to tell you that I never tasted Sarawak Laksa before even though i am born and raised in Sarawak, most of my friends are basically SHOCKED! Haha... Is it really that funny/weird that i never really tasted laksa before? And Cheryl say, "Yes, u had wasted ur life by not trying on the food" ~_~

So today, dear dear said lunch we go SCR to eat laksa and i MUST order one and eat it today. (Basically she forced me) Haha.. you know lah.. i cannot say no to my dear dear one... So during lunch all of us, ^_^ order laksa. I never really ask them to accompany me but they all ordered laksa anyway. And when the food arrived, dear dear thaught me THE way of eating Laksa. First, you have to picit the lemon into the sambal. Then you poured all the sambal into the laksa and mixed it. Then, it-ta-ta-ki-mas. It's time to eat your laksa.

Haha... 9-Oct-2007, this is the date that I ceased to become a Laksa Virgin. Indeed it's a day to remember....

This is my first bowl of Laksa.

Igloo~

Even though i never really been to very fancy places or overseas but i do have a small objective in my life. Hehe... that is, since i am in Kuching now and am stuck here for don't know how many years... i plan to go and try out all the nice places and foods available in Kch. hehe...


There's two igloo in Kch, one is situated beside 4th mile Everise and the other one is situated at King Centre. Yesterday i went to the one situated at King Centre since i went to 4th mile one before. Basically the decor inside igloo is very much the same for the two shops. The main colour is white and blue, making the environment inside feels cool... And there is bottles of flowers on one side of the wall, which is quiet pretty in my opinion. At igloo, we choose to sit at the kid's corner and order basically, ice. hehe...

This is how igloo looks like on the inside


The counter

Kiddy's corner where i sat

There is 4 different type of ice, namely milk ice, peanut ice, strawberry ice and green tea ice. For me, i prefer peanut ice together with chocolate chips. =D but yesterday i ordered milk ice with marie cookies (Pic below). Hehe... Still yummy nevertheless.

Mount Santubong Climbing Experience

When I browse through my friend's blog, available at Friends and Family column on your right, I am so jealous when i saw chubby mike going to Bangkok and that ah moi Joseph actually got the chance to go to Hong Kong!! Where as for me the furthest trip that i had ever had in my life is only Singapore which is only happening this year. *_* Then i search through franticly for any special places that i had been and ... this, is what i can find.

The location:- Mount Santubong located in Kuching, my hometown, which can be reached in 1 hour plus of car ride. Lol... Aww... I make myself sound so small but nevertheless, i feel proud of myself for being able to make it to the top. ^_^

hmm.. can't really remember when is the trip, but it's on a nice Saturday morning. Our gang (7 persons) gathered together then went to Santubong in two cars, reaching Santubong around 9.45am in the morning. Without any delay we start climbing the mountain. I never really knew that climbing in 45 degree vertically can demand so much of my physical strength. But since it's only within one hour of the climb, i don't really dare to complain too much, but nevertheless after one hour of climbing, i start to voice out that i will never be able to make it to the top of the mountain.
Pit #1

There is 3 pits along the climb for ppl to take a rest. When reaching Pit #1, i am super happy. And i told my mountain climbing mate that i will stay at this pit and wait for them to climb up to the top and down again. Haha.. I was really out of breath when i reach Pit #1. But i never knew all of my friends are so enthusiastic. They actually motivate me to move up to at least reach Pit #2. Ellee even gave me his red bull drink so that i might have the energy to climb up the rest of the mountain. =P

Since all my friend ask me to continue, so i just continue the second part of my climbing. The second part is much much more interesting. There's rope tied around the trees for us to use it in our climbing. The second part is much much more easier than the first part, mainly because there's rope to assist me. So, when they told me that the third part to reach the top is only 30 min from Pit #2, I decide to climb up to the top. The third part of the mountain climbing involves ladder that is one storey to two storey high. Wakau.. when i climb, i can feel my legs shaking a bit, but not as much as when i climb down from the mountain top.

Saw the blue rope besides us? That's the rope we used to pull ourselves up the mountain.
See it? I am at Pit #2 now. Only 45 min to go to the top of the mountain.

It took us 7.5 hours for the whole trip, 3.5 hours up and 4 hours down. By the time we reach our cars, my legs are sore and basically can't move anymore. Although tiring, but i still feel proud that i was able to climb to the top (even though I am label as "Z bottleneck" as I am the one that lagging behind due to my lack of physical fitness)

Finally reaching the mountain top. Superb!


Taking group photo as a souvenir that we really reached the top of Mount Santubong. Next target:- Mount Kinabalu.
