the gardens.

went to the gardens today and we ate at din tai fung.


the deco was pretty homey, pretty much like the one in Singapore, but i still say taipei's one is the best.

we ordered the beef la mian, the soup was good, the meet was really tender.
we ordered the vegetables (which i forgotten the name to), the beans were crunchy and very tasty, sweet and saltish, but just a little too sweet for me, but i still liked it.
next came the shrip and pork jiao zi,
the skin was not too thick, the meat was really fresh, really good
siao long bao, these tiny little dumplings are filled with soup, this obviously wasn't a let down since this is their speciality, the skin was thin, but not thin enough to make it break easily, i couldn't take a photo after i took a bite out of it because i didn't want any soup to go to waste :P
the gardens is a pretty airy place, i wouldn't say it's big, comparing to Pavillion, KLCC, One Utama it's pretty small. I'd say its size is about Bangsar Village 2.
Not all the shops are opened, but most of them are, still there are very little people walking around, probably because it's a weekday.
we browsed around the shops, until i saw this.
Piko! okay lah maybe it's not Peako, but it's close enough. (dont worry peak sheng, it's not a porn shop or anything like that, the place is actually quite interesting, lots of funky things, kinda like Gizmo.)

my car got hit.


here's a very simple illustration i did.
i was just on the way home from ou, mom was driving, i was seating in front, and ee ping at the back seat. We didn't even realise that there was a car beside us, that wanted to turn in the left junction.
she signaled after the bump, and she just drove. and then.

our car got hit, but lucky my mom was driving the volvo, and she was driving the really old merz, only our front bumper got hit, but it wasnt much damage, but her door had a huge dent, well it's her fault anyway.
she got out of the car and she started shouting already. (by the way, she just left her car in that position, how inconsiderate, the other cars behind couldn't move)
we drove to the side lane, and she got out of the car again, and non stop nagging.
"you should know i wanted to turn in that lane to swipe my card" (she was turning into her condominium, how does she expect we knew that she stayed there?)
"you were driving too fast"
"how does anyone drive fast after a bump?" - my mom.
she just won't stop claiming she's right, lucky this was near my house, and my driver was there and my dad was in the house. So i called my dad, and he arrived, he also thought that my mom wasn't at fault, and if she wants to make a police report about it, whatever we'll see who gets there 1st.
what do you think?
who was wrong?
but sheesh, if you want to turn in the left junction, KEEP TO THE FRIGGIN LEFT.

it's over.

well obviously you cant see what's exactly on my desktop unless, you click on the photo BUT what i want you to see is this.

basically, i had everything planned out for what i was going to do after spm, i was suppose to go klcc. but.

because of the stupid road block, i cant get to kl, basically the government is trying to stop Indians from going to kl to protest about Indian rights (okay not exactly).

i shall explain.
The Indians wants Britain to pay damages of 1 million pounds to each of Malaysia's 2 million ethnic Indians for rights abuses which traces to colonial-era labour schemes that brought their ancestors to Malaysia as indentured workers.

On 25th November 2007, Hindraf or Hindu Rights Action Force are submitting the petition to her royal highness Queen Elizabeth () at britsh high counsel at Kuala Lumpur. So the British need 100,000 Indian people's signatures for that petition.


until sunday. CRAP ALL PLANS GONE.

soho in one utama.

i have always loved this place ever since it opened. I thought the deco was pretty cool, white chairs, high ceilings, black tables.

good food.

what is there not to like?

either way soho in is the old wing, just beside the escalator to one world hotel, the place is white, i dont think you can miss it.

i suggest if you ever go to soho, take the ones next to the window, or close to the windows, cause the place is a little chilly and constantly plays chinese music (sorry not a fan, but yeah) quite loudly.

right after you order, you're given these (it's not free, neither is the very nicely packed tissue). It basically has carrots, cucumbers and fried spring roll of some sort but only with garlic (if i'm not mistaken, but anywho, it's very addictive), you can ask for seconds if you are willing to pay.

we ordered la mian with beef (they say it's spicy, but i need to put chilli to make it spicy, but it still tastes damn god), make sure you ask for the chilli in oil (but with less oil).
the beef is really tender and you wont take a hard time to chew it.

next we order lo bak kou (radish cake), it didn't look to yummy though, it tasted really bad after i took a bite. Thankfully, the place has good service, they replaced our dish immediately.

next we ordered, shit i forgotte what this is called, either way there's fu jok in there, and it's wrapped around with cheong fun (ask them they should know, once i found out the name i'll edit this post.)

and for dessert

liu xa bau (custard buns) okay the one on the the left looks retarded, but it tastes good anyway so i dont really mind.

the thing is super hot and you have to becareful when you eat it, because once you have a bite of this thing

custard starts oozing out (just make sure you dont spill, it'd be a waste!)

korean food and indonesian food.


is a traditional Indonesian dish.

it's basically vegetable sald served with peanut sauce.

that's how it's suppose to look like. It looks pretty disgusting eh.
either way my mom decided to just try making it for fun, and trust me it looks better than that.

it looks damn nice actually.
basically all the vegetables are cooked in hot water.


long beans and cabbage.

carrots and beancurd.
prawn fritters (i love this, i think i ate all of it, okay lah i'm not that selfish.)

it's suppose to be peanut sauce, but it's really spicy sambal (but more watery)

and we add the peanuts.

mix all the vegetables and such and the sauce and peanuts. and there we go.

dinner - korean food

the place is called KoRyo Won Korean Restaurant. It is located at Wisma Antarabangsa, 2nd floor. The place is pretty quiet at night.
okay the place is pitch black, and you can hear the air conditioner, and the restaurant is the only place that is opened (at least i think it is, there might be another japanese restaurant downstairs but i didnt check)

the place is pretty empty, but most probably it's because it's a sunday night, but i'm sure this place is packed on the weekdays during lunch time.

they will serve you cold dishes, bean sprouts, kimchi, vegetbles, beancurd, stuff like that.
and when you get there please order the barbecue beef, because it's damnn good.
order this seafood pancake as well. Well there's very little seafood, but hell it tastes good
Kimchi soup, basically they serve this thing is a hot pot, with cabbage, seafood (if you ordered seafood, i suggest you order the beef one), toufu. that's basically it.
it's damn spicy, but it's damn good.
the bill came and all this costs 190+ with tax. Well we had lots of seafood and the beef is expensive too. But i think it was worth it.

school and kura.

reached school at about 10, went straight to the library and started studying on history.

That only lasted half an hour, then i moved on the Physics.

the library was surprisingly full, but then again, the school year hasn't ended yet so if there arent form 5s, there'll the will be the lower secondary students.

see that guy in the background who is constantly looking at his book? That's Adrian Tan, well i call him Jun. He was studying history, when all of us are just talking, i was trying to do physics, well i finished one paper at least and half of one add math paper. The other guy in the background is Keng Guan, one of the main reasons why i dont like main stream is because of him. Every morning before class he would sing a certain song that keeps on playing on hitz.fm. Listening to the radio is sickening enough. But it's all good.

He's just one of the people that makes our lives more interesting that way.

That's Kevin, I only saw him doin add math though, but at least he's doing work.

Unlike my class.

yeah through out the entire time i was in school i was trying to avoid Mr. Yow. Because of my pants and shoes, but i love my shoes. Eventhough the soles of the shoe are coming out, i refuse to throw them away. They are by far the BEST pair of shoes I have ever owned. For 210 ringgit
from zara, it was sooo worth it.

that's Ryan, i cant believe anyone would dare touch Adrian's hairy leg. ACK.

It was lunch time and the rest of my class (who came to school anyway) went to A&W to eat lunch, but i left with my mom to go one utama.


lunch lunch lunch at one utama.

if we didn't know this place exist we would probably go to Soho, or eat at Vietnamese Kitchen.

Thanks to Matt, we dont need to go all the way to Hartamas to eat good Japanese food anymore.

Kura, located in one world hotel, on the first floor. Beside Soho in One utama (the old wing), there's an escalator which looks broken, but it's actually an automatic escalator, get up on the escalator, walk toward the big shiny door, turn left and you'll see the place.

Kura is in the same chain as Rakuzen in Hartamas (there's one in Subang as well). So alot of the items on the menu are the same, but Kura definitely has more varieties.

Kura is definitely a more comfy place than Rakuzen in Hartamas, less stuffy and alot more light
(good for photography yay!)

the service was definitely fast, i dont know whether it is the lack of customers (becaus it's still
new and no one knows about the place) or their chefs are really good.

we ordered the chicken katsuju (excuse me for the wrong spelling), what we normally would order at Rakuzen. I have to say that, Rakuzen's version is much better. The onions were hard when they are suppose to be soft, and it didnt get the flavour of the chicken, but the rice and mushrooms inside are really nice.

Assorted Tempura.

the scallops were the best. Better than Rakuzen in Hartamas AND the one in Subang. Oh my god i want another one right now.


Spider roll which has soft shell crab, shit just looking the photos makes me hungry again.

time to raid the fridge.
