Sunway Pyramid

Just came back from Sunway Pyramid. I went there to catch-up with my friends from secondary school, we were classmates when we was in Form 3.

We had lunch at Sushi Groove. Students get 10% discount. Just present your student card when making payment. It's slightly more expensive than Sushi King. If you're not sure what to order, just order the box set. It comes with a Ocha (not sure if I got the spelling right but it's tea) which is refillable and Miso Soup. There are variety of sushi in one box, depending on which set you ordered. The place is pretty dark but not too dark until I can't see what I'm eating. I find the sushi unique because it's not too cold like they just took it out of the fridge kind of cold. One of friend described it as warmed up sushi. I liked the tempura.

After that we went shopping, watch people ice-skate. Many shops are having sales. When we got tired of walking around the mall, we had donuts and coffee at J.Co. First time I drank espresso at J. Co. Then it started to rain, walked around a little bit more until it's time to go back. Good thing the rain wasn't too heavy and I didn't need to wait too long for the bus.

By the way, I'm starting work tomorrow at an accounting firm. I've been praying for a job for months and finally got one.

Across the Universe

Watch this musical last night which is based on various songs by The Beatles. Most of it, I haven't heard before except for "Let It Be". It's about a love story between Jude and Lucy. I think Jim Sturgess portrayed his character Jude really well. Furthermore, I like his British accent.

Across the Universe is one-of-a-kind musical, nothing like I expected. The visuals were really nice too. Enjoyed it and it's something that I want to watch over and over again.

The Broker

Finished reading The Broker by John Grisham.

Just finished it this morning, like usual it was raining in KL. Wanted to finish last night but I had to watch American Idol. It kept me on the edge of my seat,wanting to know what would happen next to Joel Backman/Marco Lazzeri/Giovanni Ferro (It's just one person by the way). As I turned the pages, I wondering if he would get caught, or killed by the people who want to kill him, or would he be safe. I think this novel would make a good movie. Really. It's so exciting. And it has a good storyline, I won't fall asleep while watching this movie, I didn't while reading this book. I also learned some Italian words from this book like boun giorno, come sta, sto bene, grazie and so on.

Anyway, Italy seems to be a nice place to relax and with a lot of places to go sightseeing in this book, especially Bologna.

Hopes to visit Italy one day,

During rainy days

One rainy afternoon, I finished Shopaholic Ties the Knot by Sophie Kinsella. It was entertaining and after putting down this book, I want to read the other books from the Shopaholic series.

And since it was raining cats and dogs and with some lightning and thunder, I watched Hearty Paws. This Korean movie can make you cry. It's about relationships, loyalty. I think the main theme in this movie is abandonment.

Baked potatoes

I made baked potatoes yesterday and it turned out well. I followed the recipe from Western Food Eastern Style by Ruzita Awaluddin.

500g potatoes
100g butter
100g cheese
A little salt
Aluminium foil
Cucumber, tomato and parsley

  1. Clean potatoes and scald with a little salt in boiling water. Cut potato into halves or three quaters if preferred.
  2. Wrap potatoes in aluminium foil and arrange in a tray. Bake until cooked.
  3. Remove potatoes from oven. Add butter and cheese on top.
  4. Bake potatoes again until golden in colour. Serve with cucumber, tomato and parsley.
Instead of 500g of potatoes, I used 4 potatoes, which was enough for my whole family. I used Mozzarella cheese. I might try using other type of cheese when I make this dish again in the future.

Enjoy your baked potatoes,

Returned from Singapore yesterday. I totally love Singapore.

I went to a few places there like Chinatown, Vivocity, Orchard Road, St. Andrew Cathedral, National Library and other libraries in Singapore. Didn't visit the places I went before the last time I was there. I spent most of my time at shopping malls. There are some sales going on there. Some of the malls are older than me, some I don't even know the name of the mall. Bought only a few stuff. Others are cheaper to buy in Malaysia and can be found in Malaysia. Besides, I don't have much money with me. The only think I bought that cost over S$10 is a Bonia purse (which might be found in Malaysia but I wanted to used up the S$50 gift voucher my uncle gave me) which meets what I want in a purse. I can be choosy when shopping. Other than that, my favourite purchase is Lee Hom's Hear My Voice album. It's his Japanese album and I couldn't find it in Malaysia and other music shops I went to in Singapore. Imagine my delight when I found it in HMV, Citylink. I got it at my last day there. Maybe you'll find find what you're looking for when you least expect it because I was already about to give up finding that album.

Still haven't found X Japan album. Even if I did, probably won't buy it yet because I don't have enough money.

Things I like about Singapore: there are plenty of shopping malls around, good public transport system, clean, safe, lots of public libraries around which is good for people like me who like to read.

I would definitely visit Singapore again in the future. I still have some unfinished business (looking for X Japan albums).

View some pictures of my Singapore trip here.

Enjoyed myself in Singapore,
