Posting in anger

Its been awhile since I last blogged. Life had been exciting, full of variety and tasks. With exams fast approaching, deadlines everywhere, I can't complain more.

Then again, surprisingly it is a dumb arse woman that finally prompted me to sign in and start posting again. And for that, I must allocate a line for her. Kudos for being a hated road user, bane of drivers and embarrassment of the gender.

What happened?
She chose to exit a junction, block the road and made everyone wait a full traffic cycle, just so she gets a spot ahead of everyone else (Ching Ming's right around the corner, ain't it?)

So there you go.
Your 5 seconds of fame. Hope your colleagues and friends see this. Some good example you are.

Chinese New Year 2010

Nostalgic moments

Our first CNY without Gramps. And after so many years, we're back in Cameron, the place that we celebrated CNY whilst growing up with Gramps. In some way it was nostalgic. Quite a pity that Lim Villa is no longer available. It would make quite a good closure.

That's my hand, doing the arsonist's job.

Dad lending a hand to get the fire going. Secret to a good BBQ is the heat, not the flames.
On right, the charcoals getting a good warming.

And at the bottom, the Perfect flame.

Visitor at home

Little "squirrel" came visiting to parent's place from the neighborhood. He (I think) constantly visited for food, despite having been caught, released, caught and released again.

This time round, he's marked. You'll know its him if you see a *white little fella bounding down the streets. Hahahaa..Dad marked him white on the body, whilst the previous guy got marked *greeen....

Dinner @ Home

Dinner preparations started with a glass of Rosemount Cabernet Shiraz 2007 - exquisite

Main ocourse was baked "chicken meat" fish using a mixture of parsley, watercress sauce and plain salt and pepper.

And the finished product...  nicely served with a unique sauce of watercress +garlic +mayonaise +lemon sauce.

Way to eat it... small bites with the sauce.

For tummy filler, a good slab of Malaccan roasted pork, generously served...

Not to forget Jo's filo pastry with spinach and cocktail sausages... and a good helping of honey mustard spicy Chat potatoes and cheese baked Chat potatoes.
Dessert imported from Ipoh - Coconut Jelly.

Breakfast @ Glenmarie

One eat-spot in town that serves a good selection of economy rice and noodles can be found at U1 Glenmarie.

Famous dish to look for would be the Curry Mee, with a variety of ingredients to include...

Spice level - High. Mark Tan will attest to that.

As always, good food must be shared. And good company makes it better.

Life is no bed of Roses

One thing's for certain. I cannot live life expecting roses everyday.
Sometimes they come, at the most unexpected moment, from the least expected people.

But the one who is supposed to deliver... disappointment again.

What do I do?

Of lifelong decisions and mistakes on the spur

Life takes twists and turns expectedly. And in life, there comes a time where things are simply expected.

So there I was, happily cruising thru in a 2 wheeler, enjoying the bachelorhood and couldn't-care-less... to the day I had to switch to a 2 door ride. Add-on in techie, or in McD if you prefer.

There's the adjustment to deal with. A little tuning here and there is a requisite every now and then. Mood swings, temper tantrum... its all in the package. Take it or leave it.

I did a little pondering. It'll be great to have to do this for myself. That doesn't work this lifetime. Commitments and a duty to deliver pretty much sums of the path.

Certain I didn't make a mistake? I suppose I did have lots of silly stubborn mistakes. Some I just have to live with for awhile.

Finally it became clear. I deliver. I always deliver.

Tempers I can deal with. Tantrums I can live with. I have mine to share, so its only fair [then live's not always fair]. And now I embark on this path, one which I stand firm on not turning back.

6 days to go.

Wish me luck.
