Mooncake & Ipoh Pigi Recap

It’s almost that moon-admiring time of the year again :)

And BC’s Precious Black is a little over-rated I must say. Sold out almost everywhere. A bite and “OK-OK nia”. Yet to try the other flavors though namely blueberry cheese, tiramisu, chestnut japanese jingsa (don’t even know what’s that) and chocolate peanut.

LOL btw this phrase was also over-used during the Ipoh yat yat yau (one day tour).

Foh San Dim Sum? Not worth it if you had to be waiting for tables and pressuring ppl to leave their tables or a possible sitting war with the lady who insisted she was there first…Char Koay Kak thumbsdwn, Chee Cheong Fun thumbsdwn, Por Lor Pao thumbsdwn, Char Siew Pao thumbsdwn (rating from Pao King himself), Siew Mai, Loh Mai Kai etc etc, common and nothing special.

Funny Mountain Tau Fu Fah? Only served with sugar syrup. I usually have mine with gula melaka syrup. After the tau fu fah, the soya bean drink felt tasteless..

Nam Heong Kopi? The white kopi peng tasted like well kopi peng. Never been a fan of Old Town anyway.

Yong Tao Fu Under Tree? Dried Yong Tau Fu ie. all the items were deep-fried. Since all deep-fried items are delicious regardless :P this was the only one we felt were great. Cheap price helped too! However I find dipping it with laksa soup only without any other sauce a bit weird so I took mine dry. And the laksa, more hei-koh (black prawn paste) needed.

“OK-OK nia” :P

Looks like somebody is in a bad mood


-View from home @ 090919 ~1022


I realized I had a bunch of emails in my inbox/sent items that I never deleted, some dating back to year 2004 (Subject: Welcome to Yahoo!) Looking through them sent a wave of nostalgia over me..I din even remember receiving/replying to some of those emails! A nice way to walk down memory lane though. And nop, not deleting most of them yet; not unless my mailbox is over-limit (very unlikely…)

P/S: Blogging from Windows Live Writer..seem kinda cool :)

Why Mosquitoes Heart Me

I always wonder why mosquitoes like me more than others. I get bitten for no reason whilst the rest mostly go by itch-free. My mum will then say my blood must tastes sweeter...

Y mosquitoes heart meThe only one person who surpasses me is Patsy. Mosquitoes "heart" her more than me LOL. Thus I make it a point to be around her whenever there are outings with those blood-suckers featured as side entertainment.

Then I chanced upon this article yesterday - "Mosquito Bites: The Real Reason Some People Are Immune." (Click on image for full article)

And APPARENTLY, I am not stressed-out enough!

So my body does not release a certain stress odor to a level enough to not only cover up the "I am tasty, come bite me for free" cocktail of odors but also repels mosquitoes at the same time. Instead mosquitoes are attracted to me like moths are to lamps.

A good (or Bad) thing though, at the rate I am currently going, I think mosquitoes will soon find that I no longer suit their taste...

To be bitten or not to be bitten, that is the question.
