After dinner, went to buy four bottles of white pepper for my cousin in-law and mom.. then as I was about to pay at the counter I come across these four pomeloes for sale at RM3.90 per kilo.

Did our last spring cleaning at home since it's our off day. There is a Cantonese saying "Wash away the dirts on ninyibaat" and so happen today is the the 28th day of month 12. (Now we are quite ready waiting for Chinese New Year. Left two more rooms that need to be cleaned and wiped a bit only then everything will be settled and can see sho many fire works sparkling in the air on 30th night of Chinese Calendar just a night before the first day of Chinese New Year of Spring Festival.

Took a short nap in the afternoon and we went for a splash at Waterpark, Stampark. We were surprised to see so many people at the pool when we reached at around 4.30pm. We thought not many people would be there as they will be busy doing their last minute shopping.

A friend of mine taught me some basic technique on how to swim front crawl the proper way.. my shoulders were quite stiff at first when I tried to do some breathing, I was thinking what is going to happen to my feet? They are going to ( sink! Whoops! ) and then I was thinking again what will happen when I kick "up" I would bend my knee instead. What can I do to get my feet up when I'm swimming?" and my friend answer was: "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction." Now where have I heard that before? If you want to get your feet up, kick "DOWN." If you want your feet to sink, kick up!

There are also a few tips and secrets he told me about there: He said we have to concentrate on the stretch right down to the toenails. Knees tight, but not rigid. Ankles as loose as possible. Toes pointed like a ballerina. We tend to do breathing too much.

He also mentioned the most common problem in learning to swim front Crawl is not breathing.. The problem is breathing too much and with this it is wrong. At most per breath in Front Crawl should be a mouthful of air and not a lungful of air. In short we need to take tiny breaths and that will be good enough.

Taking tiny breaths doesn't require you to keep your head out of the water. When you head stays in the water, your feet don't sink. When your feet don't sink, they become more propulsive and it becomes easier to breathe.

This friend of mine left the pool before I could really master the basic. All he reminded me was just relax and don't feel tension.. and never have thoughts I must reach the destination soon. Never be afraid of the pool water.. have fun splashing in there and everything will be fine..

Ohh did not realize the time was already nearly 7pm and the sky are already dark.. got to find something to eat for dinner. I can't make it to cook a meal at home. So after we had our shower, we just went to the nearest shop that is easily to find a car park. And here we are at Full House Coffee Shop.

The environment of the place is not bad. Clean and have many seats, do not have to wait long for the food

This is the place I will be looking and waiting for the little window to be opened by the cook inside telling, food is ready to be served

I ordered this plum lime juice.. taste is okay okay only and it cost RM1.80

we ordered two dishes and this is supposed to be assam fish curry without veges.

anaother dish is my favourite. Chicken curry with potatoes but the taste will never be never like home cook dish. Home cook dish is of qualility and quantity. If you want quantity outside, you have to pay more then you will get the quantity

white rice to serve with both the curries.. look at the shape of the bowl of rice. Its oval haha I wonder if their bowl is oval when they scoop out the rice?

nearly forgotten about lunch.....

This morning after breakfast I did some spring cleaning in my computer room and as I was clearing, I did not realize how time flies and it will be soon lunch time. Normally my stomach will call me to remind me when the meal time is but today maybe the alarm clock of my stomach has gone haywire and forgot when is meal time or maybe it wants to let me on a diet a bit so that I can eat more mandarin oranges and Bak kwa during the first day of Chinese New Year.

Luckily I remember to look at the clock when I was mopping. Oh... it was already pass 12 noon and I got to have my lunch.. but then what am I going to eat? Another question occured in my mind again. Feeling lazy to go out for my meal, made up my mind to have something simple and easy to prepare again. It is none other than mi-sua for the day.

mince chicken meat
eggs optional
fried shallots
meat ball
siu pak choy or sawi
sabah mi sua
nutriplus chicken hotdog
chilli padi to eat when served

step number 1

step number 2

step number 3

step number 4

step number 5

step number 6 - a bowl of nice mi-sua to be eaten soon

chilli padi to go with mi-sua

whenever I speak my mind....

This is where I have been playing my simulation Sims2 EA Game and cracking my head on what to write in my blog whenever I have any time and this is also my place to listen to songs. Will update my speakers to a better quality sound system when the time comes.

the wall paper is wow!! wow!! Looks gorgeous

a clearer nearer view of my monitor

front view

clearer view of my work place

what a comfort seat to rest on spending time infront of the monitor screen


not much time to cook any other food so this morning I just ate this noodle. No hard work and fast so if anyone of you who are busy out there just cook simple kon lo mi before you go out. My next update is coming up real soon about where I usually update my blog.
