Inside My Closet

Recently, SK shared with us his interesting food grubs and adorable toys inside his drawers and I shared my under wears in return. Now Keenyee has shocked the blog world with his alcoholic spree Chivas botol in his office drawer! OMG that danced my eyebrows for many seconds to hear this first class camwhore aunty is also a mabuk kaki botol. Oh I really like his weird personality and imagined him running in marathons with a bottle of Chivas! LOL.. Ha ha ha.

Now let me show you my closet, nothing great to brag except that my taste has changed over the years. During college days, I used to buy shirts from Ralph Lauren & Christian Dior factory outlets in New York suburbs coz they were dirt cheap and I merely aped the Koreans friends who had stereotype dressings.

When KL Fashion Week started getting hot in KL, I got invitations from Malaysian celebrity designers like William Liew, Daniel Cho and Jonathan Cheng to watch their shows many times until I learnt something new and discovered my own taste. They were all very good and talented designers with pretty wide range of interesting top notch men's wear for all seasons. I admit that I never paid attention to our local genius designers until I watched their hunky models paraded and sashayed on the catwalks.

They were all truly brilliant and fantastic Pret-a-Porter designs that were at par with those in Milan, Paris or New York. I would encourage you guys to visit the row of designer boutiques inside Sungai Wang to appreciate their high quality clothing at very affordable prices.

I have changed my taste since then, after discovering that most of their fabrics used are very suitable, nice, crispy and makes me look slimmer with confidence for sure!

Somehow I got hooked to William Liew's range of shirts instead which suits my needs to look relaxed yet different at dinner and social functions. His simplicity creations and style does not offer gaudy and shocking colours, so that suits my taste perfectly.

You can buy them at clearance SALE prices under RM50 or RM150 -200 at normal prices, depending on your budget. I would not invest on SEED or SODA which are not cheap yet they are so mass produced.

I have been buying his shirts and realised I had no time to wear them all, so I am sharing my all guilt here.

This shirt is my favourite with pinkish & yellow bands coz the stylish cutting never failed to attract attention.

This is the humble designer William Liew for today. Next time I will share more collections by Edmund Ser, Jonathan Cheng and Key Ng.

Happy Dressing Guys!

Chronology Of Events

I touched down and was surprised to see Korean Airlines plane here. Since when they landed here? An Yeong Ha Say Yo!

Went to my favourite coffee shop and the Gods were watching me. They must be pleased that I am back home again.

I love the Curry Mee here. GREAT!

Oh dear, a Thai monk appeared from no where with his bowl to sell stuffs. How I wished Anton was here to do his trick stunts to jolt the bogus monks! My mum tak boleh tahan and grumbled at the monk in Thai language - Where are you from???? Why are you here begging??? Do you know you are not supposed to be here???
Twilight - Oh mum, leave him alone. Let him go to hell and get his returns okay.
Bogus Monk - Smiles contentedly...... bluek!

At night, I headed to my same old food joints along the seafront to meet my old buddy with his family.

Have you been there? Northam Food Court? A real food paradise by the sea.

This is the long sausage with cheese cum, supposedly Keenyee's favourite too! LOL

I love their Lor Bak with tauhu and prawn fritters! It is not to be missed.

At lunch time, we headed to Sire Museum to look see and eat. It is a nice cosy place with full of luxurious antiques!

The have a unique bridge upstairs. Look at Cinderella camwhoring like the olden day nyonyas by the verandah peeking at the hansem eligibles below.

All the dining table and chairs are well preserved till now. They belong to the late tycoon Yeap Chor Ee whose family once owned the Ban Hin Lee Bank and the biggest Homestead Mansion in Malaysia. I went around looking at all his antiques stuffs and read his family tree which was at one time a heated court drama between the 4th wife seeking recognition.

I ordered Char Koay Teow and it was just okay but the total bill sent my eyebrows dancing above my scalp!

I love this courtyard with hanging ferns. I will move to a house soon with old fashioned courtyard like this, so I might hang some ferns beside my tongkat sticks.

The late Yeap Chor Ee's grandson Jimmy Yeap who headed the banking fortune was assassinated in his car by some thugs who fired point blank onto his head decades ago. My shocked father alongside Honda's Tan Sri Loh Boon Siew, Datuk Seri Tan Hoay Eam (ex-CM Koh Tsu Koon's father in law) and the whole gang had to struggle on to build this old folks home without Jimmy Yeap which became a reality & eventually the biggest in the country with beds & food for several hundred inmates. Look around & it's meritorious deed if you can find any helpless old folks in Penang without family, let me know and I will try to arrange a free bed & food for the old folks. 

I have to go now, the PA system is calling Twilight to board the plane and grandma has to wobble  along way with a tongkat. See you in KL.

So Sad & So Cruel (Part 1)


I was sick with flu due the haze and blazing sun which was understandable. 
Just when I am almost fully recovered, I fell sick again today due to 2 emails forwarded to me.

I wanna be a vegetarian after reading them in utter shock and disbelief. I have visited China several times and look forward to visit Silk Road this year end. Now I may cancel it.

I often heard tales of mainlanders eating human flesh cooked in exotic gourmet dishes and the famous Siew Pau dumpling. I heard those who cut the thighs of the corpses in the morgue had been shot dead in the firing squad.

Now this story is another new one which took me so many hours to brave myself to post the photos one by one. My colleague scolded the HELL out of me for forwarding it to his email with the title - URGENT NEW BUSINESS! Your attention appreciated.

I have no guts to type the captions but I will give the summary in case you have not received this circulated email.
There is a village in the remotest part of China that often kidnapped female backpackers and locked them up. In the village where meat is scarce, they call the imprisoned gals as their "PIGs". Come Chinese New Year, they would bring her out to prepare for their reunion feast. 

They would make sure that she is a virgin girl as the flesh is smooth and tender. A reporter who was travelling to visit a hot tourist spot, made a stopover to this village and made this unexpected gruesome discovery!

I skipped the photos till here to continue typing cos all my guts are almost gone. Why are humans worst than beasts? Even such photos could make me sick and haunted my head the whole day.

I wanna be a vegetarian after seeing all this horrendous acts. Before sunrise tomorrow, I will be flying off for the weekend to rest and rejuvenate my poor soul. What can we do to stop all the cruelty in this world?

Have a good weekend guys!
