What My Father Taught Me

Image
"My father always reminded me that when one gets married, he must place his wife as the most important person in his entire life because she will be living with you for the rest of your life. She will share all your joys, happiness and sorrows, so you must give her the utmost respect, love and support in order for her to take good care of you.... He added on that I must stand beside my wife always and support her at home and outside, no matter under what situation even if she is wrong in any conflict outside and blah blah blah......."
This has been ringing inside my head for many years! I have never quarreled with my wife and I believe my father's advice works! Every year, I will try to spend my wife's birthday celebration overseas and it has brought us to Beijing, Bali, Phuket, Angkor Wat - Cambodia, Bangkok and blah blah blah....
This year, I knew that I could not go anywhere as the timing was not right. The air fares were sky high due to the Hari Raya Holidays. She…

The Kyoto Imperial Palace

Image
Do you know the interesting facts that KYOTO was once the ancient capital of Japan? When it was moved the the present one, the name changed from KYO--TO to TO--KYO.
Our Japan trip was quite hectic as we tried to cover as many places possible in 1 week. The trip to The Kyoto Imperial Palace was the most relaxing as we were too early and had to wait for a few hours for the gate to open for the next limited visitors' session. 
This palace grounds is very huge in rectangular shape that measures 1.7km X 0.7km with many buildings inside the enclosure. It was first built in the year 794 and it was destroyed & rebuilt all together 8 times!

The Entrance Arches and High Walls of the Palace.
So we slowly walked outside the gardens and perimeter of the ancient palace. We had lunch at the cafe and lazed under the Pine Tree forest. It was lovely to smell really fresh Pine Trees.




I collected many dried Pine Cones from the Palace Grounds!!! Feng Shui Expert - Lilian Too often advised that…

Berbuka Puasa Excitement

Image
All my bosses were in good mood and decided to treat all our Muslim staff to the Best Berbuka Puasa buffet in town. Our lady boss promptly suggested Lemon Garden which is famous for their exorbitant ceiling prices and lavish food spread. It was like RM130++ per person! Goodness! Normal days would be RM148++.
So we all left the factory very early to beat the traffic jam madness to reach Shangri-la Hotel by 7pm. My bosses arrived very late and my "favourite boss" who slaves me is YB. Seah Leong Peng the well known ADUN in Perak State could not make it. Yay!


I was the first to arrive at 6:00pm cos I went to lepak in town, having foot and shoulder massage! Kekekeke... The minute I stepped into the hotel's lobby, the traditional Malay musicians started to play as if to welcome me. I stood there and enjoyed their excellent performance.




I was shocked to see reservations was packed and full to the brim. Luckily we booked 2 weeks earlier and had nice row of 40 seats inside. All …

I Love Apom!

Image
Last night I had so much cravings to eat Apom. Ladies, I mean the Apom balik @ Pan Cakes! So I headed to a pasar malam in Sri Petaling which is quite big and easy to walk. It has been ages since I walked around pasar malams. I saw a lot of new and interesting things!
These Malay guys could make good Apoms! He sprinkled the crushed peanuts and sugar with his filthy bare hands! That added the Ooomph!
It was so nice and hot with aromatic smell of butter dripping down my lips! I ate 2 pieces!


I saw this stall selling some obscene looking otak-otak wrap in sausages!!! Why must the red thing stick out and point like that? It will activate all the Hamsapress in the blog world.

I went to eat the Pan Mee which is very famous. Look at the hundreds of people eating there. It was very good and the young boss would use his portable loud hailer to scream out orders! I had to drink 2 bottles of water later as the chilly paste was killing my throat till my phlegm came out. Ahem Ahem!



They sell more f…

Words Can Kill

Image
I came into office this morning and was surprised to see workers installing another new wall partition with security door to go upstairs to my department's floor. There will be CCTV to monitor besides extra door tags to carry! What is happening?
As you might have known that I have several bosses here. One of them was almost fatally shot recently by unknown gunman outside his home. Months earlier, gangsters used sticks and weapons to whack him up. He should be thankful that he did not die as the bullets missed his heart and went through his neck & face. He lost all his upper and lower left sets of teeth plus over 100 stitches. That was due to his timely actions to bend down when bullets rang out.
You guys might think that I am crazy to blog about this. Well, I have said in my profile that I will share the truths. We have guessed that he must have said deadly words to someone out there.
We humans should always say kind and happy words to everybody! Have a very Good & Happy da…

Metrosexual Man

Image
I wish to tell you that all my friends labelled my wife as a study-freak. She will never sit still and will keep learning something until she dies. She was a straight As student at school and once studied Bio-Medicine at University Malaya where she had cut countless dead bodies like eating beef steaks. I felt so geli with stomach butterflies to hear her talk happily about the mutilated corpses! She went on to study Chinese Medicine from Beijing professors who conducted the classes locally. So she is also good at pricking needles and treating me with cup-suctions! 
This year alone will see her attending 3 Graduation Ceremonies for her Bachelor in Education, Bridal Make Up Course and Diploma In Hypnotherapy! Yeah she can hypnotize me!! She has been attending these costly classes conducted at the School of Medicine in University Malaya by the London School of Clinical Hypnotherapy. She will be doing her Masters in Education there as well before aiming to pursue her Phd in Education at Har…
