Shocking Thunderstorm!

The rain today at Subang area is definitely HORRIFYING!... But I'm guessing it ain't just one particular area. However, at USJ 21 - USJ 22 a total of 9 trees got striked by lighting! Almost blocked the road... There were cars parked below those trees too. Luckily nobody was injured! But those vehicles probably gotten a few scratches or some minor dents on the body.

The trees were cleared from the road but still traces of the incident was still visible when I walked out to take a picture. Enjoy the horror...

Uncle's Good Duck on CNY Day 10

Food... CNY is nothing more and nothing less but mostly FOOD and RED PACKET... Of course, with these comes along the many "hidden" entertainments one individual can find... =D Especially when visiting. Our entertainment... Of course, a group of people and see who's the luckiest! Aiming to win win win!... Example, playing "Big 2", "Poker", "Mahjong" and etc etc...

But I'm not covering any of those... (not just yet...) This is food found at Kota Damansara (new shop lots opposite Giant). Good deal, pricing similar to "Kim Gary" or "Wong Kok" so you get the picture. But the duck here is lovely! Let the pictures do the talking!


Really is Uncle's Good Duck... Crispy texture on the outside and moist and juicy on the inside... (the duck meat...DUH!)

This is Fresh Apple Juice! RM 4.90... (I still don't like the "sour plum" found inside!)
 

Chrysanthemum Tea (forgot how much...haha)
 

Latte (RM5...I think)...
 

So cuuuuutteee the design!!!!!! But I can't drink... (Allergic to the "Milk")

Hai Nan rice... ("Yau Fan" direct translate oily rice...lolx!) I think should be tasty! Because no leftovers haha... (RM2 rice only)
 
Dry Noodle (RM3.50) Normal "Wan Tan Mee" but actually, the noodle has smooth texture, almost like handmade... hmmm...


Yes... RM15.90 for 1/4 Quarter duck... YUMMY!


This is... also "Wan Tan Mee" but this is the soup type with Chicken "Char Siew" aka Chicken marinated meat (or something like that... hmmm)


Mmm... Food...
The best part! I love the "CHILLI" sauce!... Not too spicy, not too sweet, not too sour... Just nice... Got abit fragrance to it... And the lemon sauce next to it, to dip the duck meat to bring out another type of juicy flavor... Mmm...

This is another dish we ordered... By the way, this is "S" size... The waitress told us their "S" size is this size... VERY BIG!!! lolx... But not bad... Spicy and sour... Tasty! This is the "Assam Soup" (no idea how much though haha...)

Okay! Enough of food today... I'm going to go cook dinner... Got some request to fulfill... (evil smirks)  
See ya! (hehehe)

Weather Forecast - The Worst!!! with alienated fooood...

The weather is so hot! Too hot! Extremely excruciating hot! Every corner you turn to for cool air is filled with an anonymous amount of unlimited HEAT!... Wwwhhhhyyyyy????!!!!

During CNY, friends and colleagues "stuck" on the highway said weather degrees rose up to 38°... Lucky for those with super coooooliiinnggg air-conditioners... Imagine the amount of gas PLUS degree of heat roaming the atmosphere... Yuck...

Experiment of the year!! (Unintentionally....)


Well, to prove the heat of the weather, my family managed to give a good example... Actually my mum left out 2 eggs at the car back seat accidentally... She forgot!! But nevermind that... The following 2 days later, my dad found the egg and then brought it back... GUESS WHAT! It became "hard-boiled egg"!! Imagine the heat! A new way to heat up or cook food? Leave it out under the sun for a few hours and you might get your "hot" food instantly, simple and easy... like magic!


By the way, there might not be any flavor left on your food if you decide to do such things... Because the egg, do not smell like egg anymore... It's like the sun "dried" up the flavor too... Yes! We threw it away... I won't eat that... Even my dog refuse to go near it... Imagine the ultra-violet rays and the kind of chemical types inherited from the sun?! Vitamin - E no more...!

 
No way I'm eating that!...

Thanks to the super heat and also the lack of "GREEN FOREST" around the world, we are losing OXYGEN! The heat is going to totally burn through the sky one day straight at us, if mankind still don't snap out of it and come back to reality and do something!

The happiest people or organisation that will be happy about this is definitely the ELECTRIC COMPANY! With the amount of air-conditions going on and off non-stop to wear off the heat, OUR electricity bill will definitely shoot up to the sky! (almost...haha =D)

In the midst of pre-CNY & CNY itself

My pre CNY celebrations...

When you head to One Utama at Damansara Utama in PJ, Malaysia; You'll definitely notice the Chinese New Year atmosphere and the "Ong" environment surrounding in the mall.




Yes, on top of RM15 the "Black Rose ring". I made purchases of New Year's clothes, accessories, bags and shoes for a total of RM750+. If you include shopping for CNY's goodies for my pet "Ah Bi", the total can go up to RM1k++... It's once in a year and this year, I'm celebrating me being single and loving it to the max! (lolx...rofl)

Btw, I bought the Jelly Lens from Gala Gala Home online and it's amazing the effects only for RM50! I just need more practice! Imagine "me" saving cost of upgrading to a digital camera or a DSLR from being mobile savvy all the time! Yes, yes it's true! I can have "almost" near-to similar effects as I can get when using a DSLR with all those bulky and technical equipments (no offence...I'm just not good with camera gadgets apart from mobile)...



Sounds too fake to be real or vice versa? I doubt it... Whatever signs or omens it might be, life still goes on and we should live it up to the max with no regrets! Cheerxx... (hehe)



Finally, food time! The "Yee Sang" is a tradition for us Chinese and I wonder why every Chinese New Year, you always see after-effect of "Yee Sang" time (bits all over the table)... But I had a great time. This "Yee Sang"was with my colleagues aka our "Sau Gong" Dinner (similar to year end company dinner, to refresh and prepare to start for a New Year following the Chinese Calendar) My family reunion dinner is different this time of the year. We had reunion "lunch" instead and we ate outside! No more cooking this year (pure laziness...mmm). We had dinner at Victoria Station!! YUMMY!

With this I wish everyone a Blessed & Prosperous GONG XI FA CAI and Happy Loving Valentines Day!

This number is for everyone to keep!
(Please translate in Cantonese & it is not for any lottery purpose...yikes)

>>1314168<<
Means : 1314+168 = Forever successful aka Forever Prospering

Turkey, one of the most beautiful places!

It is true. Today our columnist of Ratianda from the Netherlands brings you a full scope of Marmaris, Turkey.

Turkey is a land of diversity and unbelievable uniqueness of cultural and historical sites. Turkey is also known for its paradise of sun, sea, mountains and magnificent views, of course all with a combination of magical history and antiquity culture.

Do You Know?
Marmaris is in the south coast of Turkey, a tourist attraction. From here one can take the boat to see corals, but we did not participate because I am afraid of travelling in a small boat or sampan (lolx...).
Turkey is geographically slit in to parts. The european part is called Thracie and the larger part lies in Asia and is called Anatolie. Population around 65 million and Turkey is well-known for its apple tea. Their alcoholic drink is called "Raki", a very strong drink!! (yikes) The National dessert is called "Baklava", layers of honey with nuts (mmmm...yummy)...

The weather here is sunny but cold. We went by coach to visit Ephesus and also the House of the Virgin Mary. We even visited the ruins of the amphitheatre (aka an arena) and the food is not bad too. On the way to Ephesus,both sides of the road are the eucalyptus trees.



Here, we arrived at Ephesus -a historical and cultural day- as we discover one of the largest and best preserved ancient sights. It used to be a port city and home to one of 7 ancient wonders of the world, the temple of Artemis and home of  the Virgin Mary.




The ruins of the temple and those with the pillars is the "Port of Hercules".


The theatre was rebuilt by Romans between 41-117ad. This was where "Apostle Paul" once addressed the crowd.




The house of Virgin Mary located on the top of Bulbul mountain is 9km ahead of Ephesus. It is located in a nature park between Ephesus and Seljuk and believed to be last residence of Virgin Mary. It is visited by Muslims, Christians, tourists and pilgrims worldwide and is believed to have "miraculous healing power".

Hope you've enjoyed this! We hope to bring you more! See you soon...!

Historical Food at KL (Parent's Request!) Pt. 2 of 2

From my previous post Part 1.

Accordingly, part 1 was for "super duper LATE LUNCH"... lolx!! For dinner, we took a few "confusing" & "get-stuck-in-heavy-traffic" turns and "purposely" drove up to the side of the road, signalled and stopped! Reasons? Yes, you guessed right again... fooooood~!!

Another favourite of my parents... The Beef Balls! Yummy! Since way back even before 1945! This will be simple... I didn't off the car, so no pictures of the shop! Yet, I won't let you miss out on anything! I did my research alright... (evil laugh...muahahahha)








Here we have Noodles "look alike" Wan Tan Mee style (but not!) going at RM4.50 for Small and RM5 for Large...




On this side here are the All-Time-Favourite "Beef Balls" : Small RM6 | Big RM9 (Small is good enough... Got 16 beef balls for a "Small" packet!!)


View Feedmelah.com Blog Restaurants in a larger map

Okay... To wrap it up, KL has much more than meets the eyes, you just need to scout out the area and lose yourself around a bit to really get to know KL! (for me it's true - losing my way on the road...THANK YOU OVI MAPS... hehehe)


Here are some cool sites/blogs I've searched up for more of this "beef ball" restaurant.

Historical Food at KL (Parent's Request!) Pt. 1 of 2

After collecting the Samsung Corby from Nuffnang's Office. It was drizzling and obviously in KL, the jam just became horrendous! So we didn't want to miss the chance of my parents ol' time favourite food for many many years!

Yut Kee Restaurant! The local Malaysians historical eating location and still standing stronger than ever! (Okay search this up on Google there's too many reviews for this)




It's very affordable (for me) but it's a great place to bring friends & family and just enjoy the warmth and the olden days of KL and the people. It's in the atmosphere. Reasons might be due to this shop has been here since 1928... 3 Generations? (Probably more) Mainly, this restaurant has been my parents favourite shop because they "kinda" knew the owner back in the good ol' days. When there was no such thing as traffic jam in the past and everyone was on foot or bicycle, my parents are always the regulars here. Well, atleast my mum's family is. 

The price has gone up compared to a few years back (when I was still playing catch in primary school and don't have a clue what "love" is...lolx). It's still affordable (for me). Chicken Chop Genuine Hainanese Chicken Chop for RM8, the sauce is was made with pure potato. Probably due to economy, the ingredients did some adjustment to our taste buds nowadays... So I taste black pepper in it... Well, almost homemade (sobs...). But how many Chicken Chop you can find out there that gives you plentiful of gravy sauce that you can even drink them like soup!! (for real?!!)


The "Kaya Spring Roll" is my parents favourite! (again) RM8 for 1 dozen pieces of "Kaya Spring Rolls" (1 whole loaf cut into a dozen pieces = 12... lolx). So I managed to experience the "historical" food at Yut Kee Restaurant. Everything else they have here is probably new, even my mum confirmed it. I would love to come here and dine in once and not take away ~again! (this was not my idea... Thanks to rain & traffic!)
