Cincang cili lumat lumat

[Live blogged by julia a.k.a bubbles182 at 27 Jan '11, 7.43pm MYT PST]

Hari ni cakap kat mak nak masak ikan talapia masak cili. Tapi cili merah tu tak nak tumbuk macam biasa. Nak bagi mak makan macam mana org masak masa duduk hostel dulu.
Kat hostel sebenarnya tak boleh masak, tapi kitorang seludup masuk multicooker and masak dalam bilik. Sshhh~ hahaha. Pastu dah kata pun seludup je kan, maka takde la blender atau lesung batu. So bila teringin nak buat nasi goreng ke, makanan yg bercili ke, ni lah caranya. Cincang cili tu sehalus yang mampu. Dlm gambar tu tak cukup halus lagi. Tp tangkap gambar dulu takut lupa. Hehe.
P/s: rindu nak masak2 dalam bilik dgn exroommate yg skrg tengah pregnant. Hehe. Congrats, zyd! ;D

#iheartborneo My Kota Kinabalu Trip - Day 1

Remember the return ticket to Kota Kinabalu that I won from IHeartBorneo, sponsored by FireFly? Well, I claimed it and went to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah with Mum last weekend. I don’t plan to write down the details of each places I went to, cos i’ll do it later in my Travel Blog. But here is how my trip went.

So the trip started as early as 5am, me and mum went to KLIA to go on board on a 655am flight to Kota Kinabalu. Flight took off at around 700am.

9 must-have items for Chinese New Year

Being a Malay myself, I don’t recall having anything in particular that we need to prepare for Hari Raya Aidilfitri or Aidiladha that symbolic for anything. We just prepare variety of dishes, new clothes and decorate our house for the guest like any other religion would do as celebrating their own ‘raya’.

I was reading The Sun this morning and came across a simple yet informative article regarding how the Chinese celebrates the Chinese New Year. I remember visited my former primary schoolmate -Cheong Ee Wan's house during Chinese New Year and another friend, Narveen's house for Deepavali. Those were the days when I celebrated all the 'raya' in Malaysia. I think I have less multiracial friends now. Or I do, but I just don't share the celebration with them anymore.

We live in Malaysia with different races, religions and cultures. I don’t know if you like to get to know their cultures, but I do. So I’m sharing what I read about celebrating Chinese New Year with those who are interested to know as well.

Leaving Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

[Live blogged by julia a.k.a bubbles182 at 18 Jan '11, 9.27am MYT PST]

Boarding any time soon, and i feel sad. This is my first trip to Kota Kinabalu and I've fall in love with Sabah already. Generally, ok. Not with the warrior guy in Monsopiad village *wink* Made a promise to myself that i'll come back one day since there are still many places i didnt have enough time to visit.
One thing for sure, Sabahans are friendly! Love them for that. Kudos!
Cant wait to blog about my trip. ;D

The man who saved my thesis

There is a photocopy shop in Taman Pekaka, Nibong Tebal where I've always go to photocopy stuff, buy ink catridges, A4 papers etc., the Perniagaan Winky Enterprise. The shop is owned by a Chinese married couple who I just call Uncle and Aunty.

I went there since 2004, my very first year in USM Engineering campus. The uncle & aunty were just like other friendly shop owner. Always ask me how I doing. And after my 4th year there, Uncle realized that I was supposed to be graduated and asked if I pursue my study. They were just a normal couple that didn’t really give a big impact on my life. Not until a few days ago...

Why I don't write very personal stuff in my personal blog

I consider this blog as a personal blog as I started it as one, and I don’t really blog about specific stuffs like the one I do with my Travel Blog, well as the title says so – for travelling stuffs. But even as a personal blog, I don’t really blog about things that I feel a bit too personal to share with the readers like some other bloggers do. I am not that secretive, if you know me personally, but I have my own reasons on why I refuse to share some little part of my life. And I kind of amazed with some bloggers who really share EVERYTHING with the readers. Some of them make the blog like their own diary. And let everyone read their diary. But if you ever try to ask them don’t they think they’re being too open, you get answers like “Well, it’s my blog, I write everything I want”.

Musim hujan di Kuala Lumpur

[Live blogged by julia a.k.a bubbles182 at 5 Jan '11, 5.53pm MYT PST]

Sejak dua menjak ni asyik hujan je bila petang kat Kuala Lumpur. Ni dalam tren aliran Ampang dari Sri Petaling nak balik rumah. Tadi hujan lebat sangat tapi sekarang dah reda sikit. Semalam bawak kereta, kat area bdr tasik selatan kereta gerak peelahan sebab banyak kawasan air bertakung. Hari ni naik train sebab malas redah jem. Hehe.

P/s: Siapa tahu nak off bunyi camera n8? Agak terasa sengal jugak bunyi camera dalam tren tetiba.

Goodbye 2010

I’ve never celebrated the eve of New Year, so I’ve never done any post on end/new year. But looking and reading all blogs posting about the memories of 2010, and their wish for 2011 makes me feel like writing a post, too.

So, let me start by doing a summary of my 2010 even though I know there's nothing much to share. Just a reminder to myself, I guess. :)
