Big Sweep

Anyone into big sweep? Tai Choy?

I remember when i was young, i helped my dad (and my mum) to look through the newspaper on the draw date to check the 7 magic numbers. And there's so many 7 magic numbers on the newspaper, and not to mention usually i have about 30 - 100 tickets to check.

Fast forward 12 years (or so) later. i've got this ticket from a friend and the wonders of internet.
Taadaa!! just type the magic number and you'll know if u are the winner. instantly.

I wonder who does check this via the net.

Magic Sponge


As Wingz sponsor me some of his company products, i finally got chance to test this Magic Sponge.

Mum was complaining that my bonnet was stucked with some black stain that won't go off even though she scrub for 2 days. Those black stain look like some tar at first, but upon examining, i can feel that as if my car got scratches like that.
(sorry i didn't think i would write this review at first so i didn't take any picture of the stain)

I had this Magic Sandwich version and then i pour some water and start rubbing the bonnet. Wahlah... it's gone, 1 by 1. The weird thing is, even the scratches (light) nearby is missing. That keng meh...

So for more information pls go to the website above la ok.
Sorry ah i not promoting this but i used it and found out it's kinda amazing and wingz ask me to write i write review on it la.

Btw, these sponge can be purchased at most departmental store. I saw it in Home Fix DIY (1U New Wing), and if not mistaken, Jusco too.

Now Wingz, where's the rest of the magic sponge? u duwan let me test all meh?

Restaurant The Bird

Situated at Bandar Menjalara this restaurant is surprisingly easy to find considering that i'll usually get lost in Kepong area.

From LDP (towards kepong) make a U-turn after the RM1 toll and turn left at Bandar Menjalara. You'll meet a roundabout (there there's a HUGE Desa Park City sign). Take 12 o'clock and take the first left turn. Go straight all the way, and The Bird is on your left.

Now as most of you will think why THE BIRD. Well, the decoration of the restaurants it's antique style. Very much like blue lotus in Bukit Bintang. And all of the lamps are in bird nest stylo. Maybe the other meaning is the owner likes 'Bird'? You got to see for yourself.

Serving 'seddddddap' nyonya food, what i liked there best was the BUTTER CHICKEN. Took the SET for 2 that came with chicken, fish vege + dessert, and it cost total of RM40 incl. 3 Ampula Juice (confirm nice).

There's other fav dish like the Bird Nest Mee and they serve Sarawak Laksa too. Am going back there for the laksa very very soon.
Pictured on the left, local HVD artists and cut out reviews from various newspapers. The Bird even featured in Jalan Jalan Cari Makan. :)


Southern Visit

Filler post before i continue with the I- Survived - Bangkok - Trip.

Spent my weekend JB & 6 hours in S'pore. (6 hours including putting about 2 hours on customs & public transport)

Surprisingly something in S'pore is cheaper than JB after conversion. So.. shop wisely!!

After some endless shopping in JB, we swim over to S'pore & here's a outcome of 3 1/2 hours in Bugis alone.
1. Got myself 120 pcs of 4X6 glossy photo paper for $12.80
2. Got a Kappa sweater with my fav country embossed.

3. And ridiculous it might seen, the K800i screen protector. (well it's not available here yet)
4. Toys (hey dun think somewhere else)
5. A coin purse

6. Pocket Ashtray. Now this is something useful. I've seen Louis Koo used once and since then i've been looking for it. And i found it 4 years later.

Someone got to stop me from doing shopping till 2010!!!

And back to JB, here's some nice (but not so romantic) eating places in Permas Jaya. Masuk kampung roads (don't take your lowered car to JB, really), the restaurants are facing Singapore, above the 'river' malay type, and very nice nasi lemak (+ the attitude problem).

Nothing much to shop but i found a levi's engineered jeans. One that look like slacks. And some magical aroma stones that discard the ash smell on your ashtray. Nice!

Guide to SG, drive your car to City Sq JB and find a car park. Walk to opposite bus station. Go to the departure hall, get your passport scanned and head to the bus terminal. (as you can see 'Causeway Link' & 'SBS Transit'. Get ready your coins ( in RM) and depends on where you want to go, pay according to amt. Remember to look out for the bus number (CW1, CW2 etc) - for me i chose the nearest MRT so it's Kranji (MRT) and it's 90 cents per person.

When reaching SG customs, fill a form and walk to Mr. Kastam*. After you done the x-ray thing, now, it's time to chase the bus. If u missed it no worries, you can always wait for the next bus. Just follow the sign above those barriers to the correct bus. Tada.. you are in Singkapoh.

*somehow we met the same Mr. Kastam on our way back and he recognised us. Smiling, he said, are you the one that went to Bugis? Yeah!, and see what i bought... (showing se* toys)

Bangkok Eat & Drink V3

Abit weird that we visited HRC in Bangkok. Well we just too hungry to look for other food in Siam Square. And we desperately need to sit & relax our legs.
Oh, and it's a NON SMOKING restaurant.

The most expensive food we had. But it was ok. It was very nice in term of display & taste. So no complain.
OK no more drink liao.. next post will tell you about your route planning during your stay in BKK.
