As many already know, most of the songs I recommend or listen to is pretty much related to my current mood or topics that have been recently discussed among friends. I heard about this song quite a number of times, I never know what it means cause I always listen to the ending bits. Of course, from the voice… I always thought it was a song from Janice… which I was obviously wrong. It’s actually a song from her twin sister, Jill (è¡›è©©) titled I’d Rather You Not Know (å¯§é¡˜ä½ ä¸çŸ¥é“).
The other day, Gigi asked me some questions.. hahaha… which is something she is curious to know. She asked me, what is the feeling like when an ex-bf wants you back? Well… and the first thing that crosses my mind, DON’T! Don’t tell me. I’d rather I don’t know about it cause I personally think it does scare me away. Hehe… I am a scary cat~
Yeah, and talk about human being complicated… at times you wish someone just express themselves to you.. and at times, we just rather they keep quiet and not talk about it. So when should we express, when should we not? Hemm…

After a great Evening Hoursâ„¢, we all decided to go Genting. Vroom.. vroom. Yippie… we drive all the way from Kota Kemuning to Genting. Hehe.. of course a pit stop at my house since it’s nearby to Genting to grab my jacket. Yeah, I guess I would have freeze to death if I didn’t get my jacket along.
Everyone parked their car outside my place and we got in to Jon’s car. Yippie… car pool is fun. As usual, Starbucks seems to be the pick. Well, much more quiet and warm. I must really say I kinda like their Christmas version of stuff. From the paper cups to the posters, redeem cards. It’s all just so nicely and tactically done.
Did I just say I love Christmas stuff. Yes, as usual… Haha.. so yeah, the guys help us get our stuff while we, the girls… of course take some pictures first. Gigi require everyone of us to do a cute face which all of us gladly do. It isn’t that hard rite?
We did a lot of chit chatting, but mostly asking question about how Jon and June got together. Haha.. poor Jon. Well, what to do.. he question us a lot… especially Brian and Gigi when they got together.. so yes, one can say revenge is sweet… one can also say we are concerned friends and some could even say we are just creating a topic for the long night.
But yeah, they both are cool and sporting people. So it was pretty much fun and laughter the whole night. Now… yes, the question is… if I have a boyfriend… what would my luck and chances of escaping the questioning? Hemm… muahahhaha… it looks ugly!

Ah…. such a beautiful name… Evening Hours is a little name Brian thought of for our little cooking project. So yes, in future… if there is anything listed with the word Evening Hours, it’s surely something to do with cooking. Not to forget to credit the logo was done by Gigi.
We headed to Brian’s house. Yes.. since he have a big place, equipted kitchen and cozy environment.. we figure why put those stuff to waste. Brian had to work and so after work he and Gigi went shopping for stuff. As for me, I have stuff to do as well hence I just pass my list of ingrediant to Gigi so she could buy for me as well. Oh yeah.. did I not mention… everyone have to cook one dish? Ah.. yes.. that is the tricky part.
Jon and June was rather busy hence we sorta allow them to buy something and share instead of them cooking. Since they are going to be late, we decided that we should start preparing the food first. When I arrive at Brian’s house, Gigi is already busy cutting up meat, tomatoes, mushroom. Yeah… Gigi is gonna cook spagetthi for all of us. Wooo hooo… yummie yummie. As for me… I will cook Pork Rib in Orange Sauce. I guess the most difficult part would be marinating the pork rib…. and squeezing orange without proper equipment. Haha… As for Brian.. hemmm.. he is doing the Bake Tomato with baby leek and Balsamic Vinegar (Jamie Oliver style).
Sounds interesting? Yeah… everyone seems to cook something that could compliment to each other stuff. Each busy trying to finish their masterpiece. Brian stay around his microwave as his food require only that… while me and Gigi was busy walking around the stove… frying, boiling and doing everything else.
When we are almost done, Jon and June arrive. Jon brought some cheese sausage while June prepared some sandwiches from home and even brought dessert. Awww… a complete meal. Hehe… June didn’t feel good for not cooking anything since it was a cooking project hence… she did something from home. How sweet rite?
We took some pictures, have some wine and started to dig in to our delicious dinner. It was all just so lovely and nice. We finish almost everything. No kidding… haha… are we hungry or what! We then clean up the place… sat down in the living room and chit chat.
Suddenly…. Jon suggested that we go Genting… woohoo!!! Of course we all say OKAY! I mean like since when going out is not okay! It’s been a while~ hahaha… yes… I shall blog about it in the next post~

Indeed everyone have cravings of their own. Like me, it’s different most of the time. What is worst is when everyone around me talk about food a lot. I know this doesn’t only happen to me. Yes, everyone loves to eat. Everyone.. by hook or by crook have to eat (whether you like it or not).
So.. yes… I was chatting with gigi that day and was telling her my cravings and how much I wanted to eat “Kung Pou Kai Ting” and “Lam Yee Pai Kuat”. Haha… I wonder why too. Yes, as you can really see… I am a carnivore. I love mean. I love pork! Yummie!
So before heading to a midnight show, we stop by at Choi Keng Restaurant along Jalan Alor and have our dinner. According Gigi, they serve one of the best stir fry stuff in town.So yes, lot’s of food that I crave for… a vege and a tofu to ceomplete the well balance food group.
I was personally disappointed with the Lam Yee Pai Kuat. I think it wasn’t seasoned and marinated long enough. The fermented bean curd taste wasn’t really strong. And when the pork rib fails to absorb the taste… one can say… the dish fails terribly.
*ting ting ting* The Kung Pou Kai Ting was alright except the fact that it was a little too sweet for my taste. Nothing wrong with the dish.. just that when it comes to main course… I prefer nothing too sweet. The vege and the tofu was pretty standard. I personally believe nothing can actually go wrong with safe dishes like this.
Only people like me could screw up vege and tofu dish. No kidding~ So yes, if any restaurant does screw up on dishes like this. Be sure not to return! Well, Gigi agreed too that their standard dropped a little from her previous visit. Who knows… probably the cook is in a bad mood.
Okay… the big surprise was this. I wasn’t really a fan of Alex Fong. In fact, I wasn’t a fan at all. However, my cousin Nicole could possibly be one of his greatest fans. Right, and I think I just give more than like 5 reasons why I didn’t like him yesterday. And since today is the “today in history” day… I decided to put up this one song that I like. Surprisingly it was from Alex Fong (æ–¹åŠ›ç”³) and Stephy Tang (é‚“ä¸½æ¬£) titled Hou Hou Lyun Ngoi (å¥½å¥½æ‹çˆ±) loosely translated as “To Appreciate Love”.
Well, it was quite and old song… yes, I am aware of it’s existance but never manage to find out what title it was until it became the theme song of some radio series. I then manage to get the meaning of the song, which I really like and think it is cool. Of course this is a surprise thing for Nicole… hence I didn’t really have the time to translate it to english.
Pinyin translations for songs are available at the comment section.
Now… a day that Nicole refer to as “today in history”. Yes, this very day is the first time she tag me. Yes, she have been bugging me with what is so special about May 17th. Hemmm… yes… I make her wait impatiently as I promise to give her a surprise later on… after the tag. Okay…. now the tag…
Food… food and more food. It wasn’t really that hard actually. I guess the only hard part was to decide what is my favourite. I have too many favourite… really… a very long list. Initially I decided with Asam Laksa… but since it was on the list I tot I should opt for Grill Chicken Wings… only to notice I have no pictures of them. Ah… so I decide to go with otak-otak.
I love otak-otak and most of the time I have cravings for them. When I do… I could order dozens and dozens of them and just eat em for dinner. Yes… nothing can beat that! I guess I have included short descriptions and info about what otak-otak is in the image. Ah… yes, I guess my picture manage to convince you otak-otak does taste good. Very very good indeed.

*blink blink* The moment I wake up was like in the afternoon. *yawn* Yeah, I sleep till kinda late on weekends. Especially when I go out till late night on Friday’s. Unbelieveably… I wake up to notice I need to a little house cleaning before I jump to get ready myself to attend an important ocassion.
Yes, my fellow VVIP.. Brian’s House Warming Party. I finally get to visit his house :). I was pretty much excited so I decided to leave home early to see if there is anything I could help. But my excitement was quickly washed down the traffic jam.
Ah… still… I am an hour early. Haha… I finally reach his house at Kota Kemuning. One surely will not miss the place as it was the only one with a big white tent outside. When I arrive, the host is no where to be seen. I knew Gigi arrived as I parked right behind her but she was no where to be seen. Strangely… I felt weird when there seems to be no one I know of there. I start to wonder if I got to the right house.
When I saw Beerbrat (Brian’s brother)… is like me seeing a saviour! I was so glad and he showed me the way upstairs. Ah… brian just got out from shower… now no wonder he didn’t pick up his phone. Yes, the he bring me around a little. Give me a little tour around his beautifully furnished home.
I was surprised Kean Tat came all the way from Singapore. Aw… he is sweet enough to finish up 2 painting for Brian as a gift. I personally think the two painting was fabulous.. one in red and another one in black and white (my pictures didn’t do the masterpiece any justice). It’s been a while since we met so we chit chat for quite sometime at the kitchen without even noticing more and more people have arrived.
Slowly, more and more familiar faces came. Yeah, yet another gathering. Brian’s colleagues then arrive… ah… and the best surprise… hahaha my another fellow VVIP, Jon brought his girlfriend, June along. Haha… This is the very first time I met her.
Awww… I can see his shy face when everyone tease him. Haha… really lots of surprise. When most of the people arrive, we make our way to the buffet spread and started to eat. Unlike Jane’s selection, Brian’s selection was more western style. It’s something new for me as in.. this is the first time I had western style buffet outside of a hotel.
Er.. why no food pics? Er.. let’s just say I was too hungry. No kidding… if you really notice… I haven’t had anything since yesterday~ After dinner, the guys decided to head in and play some PS2 while some of us remain to chit chat outside. The chit chat group grew bigger then more and more of them were bored of playing games.
Yet another late night, yet another party I have crashed into.
