Cooking of the day

This is what I always do after a long day of shopping in Oxford Street; cooking! Tom Yam Pasta 2009

I name this Tom Yam Pasta. Not sure if there is such dish in the world yet, but yeah, I use the concept of “Secukup rasa”. It’s a Malay word (time to learn some Malay for those who don’t understand it :P)  Bon Appetite!!

A decent Meal

Meal of the day 

How to make it?

First of all, marinate chicken with Teriyaki Sauce (GBP2.40 in Sainsbury). Make sure you cut them into small pieces. Stir-fry the chicken with some olive oil. Once the meat turned white (means half-cooked) add 100ml of dilute corn starch solution (starch + water) and let it boils to half dry. This will leave the juicy gravy surrounding the soft and yummy chicken.

Next is the making of Broccoli. First of all, prepare some fresh broccoli and well cut onions and garlic. Stir-fry onions and garlic with olive oil and then add the well sized broccoli and continue frying. After 5 minutes of stir-fry, add some water+oyster sauce (can get it from China Town). Use the lid to cover the pan and let them boils. The broccoli is ready when the water dry out.

And lastly, don’t forget to cook rice. This is one simple meal to make. It should not take longer than 30 minutes. Enjoy..

Oh NO!!

Today I went to Sainsbury in front of my house and get some groceries. Bought 2 bag full of food and stuff. I paid using my card and took everything .. EXCEPT FOR THE CARD :( What a bad day. I was lucky that I manage to transfer all of my money into another bank account. FUUHHH!! What a day..

Luzern and Lake Geneva

My Switzerland first destination was Luzern. We took a ferry from Friedrichshafen to Romanshorn and transited for 15 minutes before getting on the Pre-Alpine Express Train. The journey took about 2 hours and 46 minutes passing through St. Gallen, Rapperswill, Arth-Goldau and finally arriving in Luzern or also known as Lucerne.

Upon arrival in Luzern, we make our way to the Tourist Info Centre. We found an interesting excursion at the Mt Pilatus, located about 10 KM from the Luzern. Guess what we took a slow ferry ride across Lake Luzern and arrived at the foot of the Mount, Alpnachstad. We rode on the Steepest Cog-wheel  Train in the world with 48% Gradient in order to get to the top of Mt Pilatus. Amazing, isn’t it!?
Mt Pilatus Cold but Cool!! Yin Ling, Yilin and I on top of Mt Pilatus
It was unfortunate for the three of us due to the bad weather on top of the Mt Pilatus. As you can see in the picture above, it was foggy up there. Too Bad :(. Next, we checked in to a  Korean hostel, Minbak. My favourite hostel of all.
IMGP5036  I highly recommend this hostel to anyone who is planning to stay in Luzern. This hostel offers dorm systems and separated male and female apart. It is equipped with free desktop + Internet and also wireless for laptop. In addition, you will have Korean breakfast every morning :D my favourite :P
The next morning, we toured around Luzern Old town. There was a farmers festival or something on that day and we were so lucky to experience such interesting festival. Enough for Luzern, I should not tell too much as for you travelers to discover by yourself.
Moving to the west of Switzerland, we took The Golden Pass Line Express to Montruex via Interlaken.
The Golden Pass Line On board heading to Montreux, I met a woman (the mother of a just-married-son) and chatted quite a bit before she took off at one of the station right before Montreux. It was really good to chat with the friendly locals. Upon arrival in Montreux, Yin Ling and Yi Lin went to Migros( something like Sainsbury in the UK) to get some food and one of them was a bottle of red wine. We went to the lake shore and sat down, enjoying the tranquility of such beautiful sunset. It was my first time seeing such calm and pleasant sunset.
Wine + Sunset = Perfect Tranquility of Sunset Lastly, we head back to Interlaken and looked for our hostel. Guess what we arrived in Interlaken West station at 0000hr. Wow!! Tired and quickly checked into the hostel and Sleep!!! ZZZZzzz
NEXT:  Jungfraujoch

Nottingham Game

Last week went to Nottingham and played mixed volleyball. Guess what ? Buses depart from Imperial at 4.15 am and I did not sleep for the whole night. That’s fine but I was representing Imperial Malaysia Society for its specially-3-days-trained mixed volleyball team. What a pain in the ass. And more surprisingly my team won Bronze!! YA HOO!!

Medal!!

What a dissapointment :(

Same thing happened today, I checked my DHL online tracking service and found this.. “Awaiting further delivery instructs”. I was so pissed - I called DHL right away asking what the hell is wrong with them. This was the 5th or 6th times I called to rearrange my redelivery and that’s not all about it, worst was I skipped few days of lectures by putting my faith in the efficiency of the inefficient DHL.. So much of  DISSAPOINTMENT on their so called GOOD reputation. When I spoke to the operator to confirm my parcel delivery status, I was so furious when they told my parcel were still on hold at this slowpoke service centre. Without rearranging another delivery which I believe will end up waiting forever, I decided to take a tube and collect the parcel by myself. Took an underground to Vauxhall Station and get to DHL. Worse, I forgot that it was a very heavy and large parcel – it contain my lovely mountain bike.. Want it or not, I carried the whole box weighed 20kgs all by my bare hand without any assistance from DHL.. Inconsiderate!!!!

The story did not stop here, when I opened the parcel, I realise there were broken items in there. So what now.. !! Why were those people who handled my parcel being so irresponsible… Or they post strike in a different way, breaking the item in my parcel = satisfaction.. Now I have to spend extra penny to send this broken items back to the shop and claim for a refund or replacements. Troublesome!!!!

DHL ? EFFICIENT?

This is the story about the efficiency of DHL. Good impression being made in advertisement from the TV or Internet about the best delivery or courier services, DHL. My arse’s better. I’ve been waiting for my parcel for a week and it doesn’t come to me as yet. This takes longer than Royal Mail even though they have post Strike.. Don’t tell me that DHL has post-strike too.. I am now very unsatisfied with the service provided by DHL.. My advice is please meet the high expectation from the customer, who spend so much money not for nothing…

A month of NOMAD

It has been a month since I came back from my summer holiday. Since I touch down at the airport, I had been staying in a few places as a Nomad - a member of a people who have no permanent home but move about according to the seasons, by webword. First, I stayed in the Malaysia Hall somewhere near Bayswater. Next, I shifted to my college senior's accommodation at the University of Queen Mary. I have to say, students here are quite fortunate to have the student accommodation for the the whole undergraduate period. I enjoyed the high class hospitality from my senior ( really appreciate what she did for me). During my say at that place, I met up with another two of my seniors from the college and high school respectively - before heading for our Germany-Switzerland trip. It was a good reunion after not meeting them for such a long time. Right after my trip, I signed up for the Railway Volunteering project which took place in Wales. It was fun having to spend some of my time to contribute to the society. Came back to London and I had to stay with another of my friend before my term starts and head back to my accommodation in the south west of London at the Cromwell road. What a journey I had for September. Glad to be back...

LAKE CONSTANCE - Meersburg

A couple of weeks ago I went for a vacation in Germany and Switzerland with Yi Lin and Yin Ling (both were my senior). We took Ryanair from London Stansted departed at 1350hr and touched down at Friedrichshafen Airport around 1620hr local time. The journey took about 1 hour and 20 minutes. The airport was surprisingly small reminded me when I was in Lahad Datu, Sabah. Right before our flight landed, a clear and astonishing view of the lake could be seen from the tiny window in Ryanair airplane. Shape of the lake is exactly the same as shown in Google Earth. Arriving at Friedrichshafen we took a bus (Group ticket 7.90Euro) to Stetten - a small town where the hotel where we were staying located.

Upon arrival we searched for Gasthof Rebstock (Haupstrasse 15, 88719 Stetten) and checked in our luggage. It was surprisingly comfortable in there with reasonably priced, 25 Euro per person per night + Buffet Breakfast = VERY CHEAP (Big thanks to Yi Lin and Yin Ling for their research on hotels). Plus, it has a very romantic room setting - suitable for those who plan to have their honeymoon :) Shown in the picture is the room for me alone :D
My room

We took dinner at the Hotel before heading off to tour around Meersburg for a night walk. I took a breaded pork with salads and chips + Apple juice.. My favourite on that night was the fresh apple juice (100% apple). It was stunningly fresh and tasty - how could I tell it's fresh or not - just fresh..

Apple juice

Meersburg is a very small castle-like-town with romantic and soothing surrounding. It's an ideal place for a relaxing walk. We walked all the way down from the upper part of the town across the steep walkway to the lower part - waterfront. It was reposeful to walk along the steep walk way. Pubs were occupied by most of the visitors and locals who enjoy wine and beers very much - I only enjoy wine :P. It was great experience except for they could hardly understand and speak English. Night walks over and we got back to the hotel - shower and sleep..

We decided to wake up early in the next morning - around 6 and go for a jog then breakfast. Yin Ling managed to jog around Stetten but I just can't wake up that early - so I slept longer ignoring the jogging plan in the morning. We took a bus to the harbour and then boarded a ferry across the lake to Konstanz. The 2 ways ferry ticket from Meersburg to Konstanz cost us about 3.50euro per person. As we arrived at Konstanz - hurried to the Information Centre Office and get the brain updated with some interesting sightseeing places. We took Bus No. 1 and requested for a FAMILY ticket (6.70 euro). I became the Old Daddy with two little daughter. Konstanz, as compared to Meersburg is more attractive but it's a bit busy with cars and people flooding the streets. We went to the Market Street - a lot of coffee shop, Fish Market - don't really see any fish and the Imperia - a Lady statue in front of the council building. Lunch were at a Seafood restaurant next near the Market street - got myself 2 raw herring (nasty but great) and some fried potatoes and a smoked Mackerel (delicious).

Raw herring with potatoes and salad

After Konstanz, we took a ferry back to Meersburg and walked a round the castle town. Sunset was absolutely wonderful with the sun reflection on the lake. We had our dinner at one of the Restaurant near the waterfront. I had some fish + Salad + Potatoes accompanied by a glass of red wine.

My dinner at Meersburg

That's a day of travelling around Lake Constance. Next up will be Luzern...

Tiring day!!

Woke up around 7 and went to meet my old friend, Shiun Lei whom just arrived at Heathrow from Malaysia. I took a train from WhteChapel to Piccadilly Circus via underground. Waited in front of the exit gate ( where you touch your Oyster Card) for quite almost 30 minutes... It happens that he was waiting for me on the ground and I was just right under him...

I became his KULI - carrying his 24kg luggage around London - went to have breakfast at McD near China Town - non of the shop in China Town opened before 9. I had a breakfast meal before accompanying him to Euston National Rail station.. First Job's DONE!!!

So I head back to QueenMary. Once I arrived at the entrance, guess what I met Linda and the rest carrying their Summer storage from the very nearby Safe Storage Company. Huh... What an exercise to do... And here I am - muscles pain and exhausted!!

EMIRATES BUSINESS CLASS

My recent flight back to London is my best airline experience since 1997. Title of this post is the reason why. I never been on a business class seat until this flgiht to DUbai. Many people ask me how did I ended up in Business class while paying for Economy class. To be frank I have no idea at all but I can share on what happened during the departure day.

I checked in my luggage with 32kg in total not knowing I've been promoted until I am at the boarding gate. I hand my boarding pass to the officer and when he scanned the pass, the machine suddenly beeping loudly accompanied by red light - indicating Boarding pass error (which is supposed to be green if otherwise). I was really worried at that time - they got my adrenaline pumped up.. The officer then direct me to a counter to solve the problem. Bla bla bla. One of the officer took my boarding pass and give me a different pass with " Congratulation, you've been promoted into a Business class seat. Enjoy your flight!" That's what happened..

The flight to Dubai was at my most comfort with a big LCD screen in front of me and digitally adjustable massage chair. I can change the position of the chair all I want. Food served in Business class is much better than the economic and also I was allowed to try some wine in the menu list. The best part is when my sleeping comfort. Back pain no more when you are in Business class.

From Dubai to London Heathrow, I was in economy class :( it was a 7 hours flight and I felt extremely torturous with limited space to move my body unlike the business class. Ha ha. Anyhow I am glad I reach Heathrow airport safely. It was a wonderful journey.

SUMMER HOLIDAY IN MALAYSIA

It had been a month plus since I updated this site. Had been enjoying oily and unhealthy diet back in Malaysia - Chicken rice and Char Kuey Teow and Fukien Mee.. My favourite cheap foods :D for the whole month of July I've been to Pahang with Shiang Jin and Eilyn to visit Ah Seng. It was a great 3 days stay over at Ah Seng's house. All of us were fed well with a lot of Durians :D I miss durian now :P Visited a couple of places around Kuantan before heading back to KL. Without Ah Seng being the unpaid tour guide in Kuantan, it wouldn't be as enjoyable. So have someone to bring you around is much more better than going alone at place like Kuantan :D

On a spontaneous plan with Eilyn and Seng, the three of us went for a sudden trip to the Water World in A' farmosa in Malacca. I remember the last time was here back in 2001, this place is very very popular and fun but now it's like an abandon water park with an expensive entrance fees of RM 40 per-person :( Most of the facilities in there are not well maintained which contributes to my resentment over it. After a Long day in the water park, We went for a night tour around Malacca - THE JONKER STREET. It is a famous street decorated with variety of stalls from magic merchandise to delicious food. The most interesting part of this street is the Chinese line dancing SOCIETIES - There are loads of them dancing cha cha in group and tourists will be watching and snapping photos excitingly. I was really tempted to join the dance:P The next day involved a lot of walking.. Went for Malacca river boat ride and also the Taming Sari revolving tower. It was a short but wondrous trip for Kuantan and Malacca. I wish I could spend more time exploring them.

PC fair 31st July - 2nd August 2009, KLCC Convention Centre

PC fair was as awful as ever filled with human beings walking in the crowds. It took at least 2.5 hours to walk through the whole Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre without stopping by to buy some gadgets. I went on the last day which is on Sunday 2nd August. It was so crowded that I only be able to walk with the speed of 1 foot persecond or lower. Oh and guess what I discover during this PC fair, DONT GO ON THE LAST DAY if you are buying stuff like external Harddisk cause it is not going to be any cheaper and you won't get free goodies. I bought an external harddisk WESTERN DIGITAL ELEMENT 500GB (2.5") and a notebook KINGSTON 2GB RAM (800GHz) - spent a total of RM404.. Now I felt so poor :(


I met up with my old colleague from TMNET Booth. haha Most of them are still there and it reminds me of the day I work with them.. bravo.. Keep it UP buddies.

OH ya , before I forget.. this is about the parking services everyone experienced in KLCC. Which I define TERRIBLE.
From this picture, the long queue is blocking the pedestrian way. It took at least 30 minutes before you could pay for your parking ticket. Of course patient is virtue but efficiency makes everyone happy. Guess how many AutoPay Machine in there??

Deja Vu

What is Deja Vu? According to Wordweb, it means the “The experience of thinking that a new situation had occurred before.” This is what happened to me recently. About 2 months ago, I had a dream of something terrible and never thought it was real. It wasn’t real but related in a way. And… It is bad! What a bad luck!!

For example war, economy recession and also the latest virus outbreak – Swine Flu, but non of them concern me much more than my exam crisis. It is just 9 days away from now and I will be having my FINALS :( The atmosphere in Imperial College changed drastically – everyone is holding at least a piece of paper reading and solving question all the time.

Friday Night Cook Out

It was the last Friday of my Easter Holiday and classes will be resumed on Monday. Huh, what a stressful matter to think :( Stuart came over to London for the Singapore Day (https://app.singaporeday.gov.sg/index.html) – where you can get a lot of Asian-taste food and also meet some of the most entertaining Singaporean artist (Phua Chu Kang maybe). I was tempted to go but I have better things to do :D

Anyway back to the cookout I with Wee Seng, Shiang Jin and Stuart. We cooked steamedwhite rice, unsuccessful chicken flavoured rice, omelette, Kai Lan (vege), Chicken SOup (using Chicken bone), and last but not least special Spicy Chicken invented by our head chef of the day, Wee Seng!!!! Clap Clap Clap!

While Wee Seng and I busy cooking, Stuart and Shiang Jin did some thing to the food. This was what they had done to it.

By Shiang Jin and Stuart Notorious bunch of kids. Anyway I was so glad to have this cookout and looking forward for another one in the near future. Perhaps after my finals :( I need to study already !!! Will spit my thought in this site when I am free or feel like spitting :)

Portobello Market and Imperial China Dim Sum

Collection from all over the world and centuries
Last week, one of my long lost senior Yin Ling and her friend, Hui Xing (I hope I didn’t misspell your name) stayed over at my place due to The Exhibition of BODY WORLDS & The Mirror of Time held in The O2, London (SE10 0B) – for more information, please visit

http://www.visitlondon.com/bodyworlds/

They stayed only for 3 days and 2 nights. Before we parted on Saturday, we went to one of the most popular market in London - Portobello Market in the morning. That market was surprisingly LONG and it seem to be endless.


MAKAN Restaurant
Entrance to Portobello MarketThis is how the Market looked like on that day. It is just the entrance in to the market and by observation you can predict how busy this street will be. It is approximately 2 miles and the market takes up the whole Portobello Road. According to internet source, this road was made famous by the film Notting Hill (1999). I found most of the interesting and attractive antiques such as old maps, ancient cameras used in the 40’s and also collections from all over the world. It was fascinating. Cutting all the length story and finally towards the end of the road you can find a Malaysian Restaurant called MAKAN. The three of us went in there and grabbed some Malaysia Kuih. It makes me feel like I am at home again.


It was about 1130 and we decided to get going to China Town and meet Hui Xing’s Friends in Imperial China Restaurant. It was my first time eating proper Dim Sum in London or to be exact in the UK. We are considered to be the bunch of crazy people – Order Dim Sum without considering the size of our tummy. But we manage to finish all of them :D Well Done!!

This total cost is as shown in the picture equivalent to GBP 135.10 x 5.2 = RM 702.52 divided with 9 person so each of us paid GBP15. Quite expensive for a Malaysian like me cause I could get my whole week of groceries with that amount of money BUT I can’t buy the happiness of having such great Dim Sum and spending time with friends. So using deductive logic, it was worthy. I will treat myself one great meal again before I go back to Malaysia:) Or on second thought, I will keep the money to spend on the unbeatable Malaysia Food :P

House Hunting !!

House Hunting is tiring and time consuming. If you are not fast in making decision, you will not be able to get nice and comfy house. On Monday alone, there are a few groups hunting for houses. The atmosphere was so tense – It was like a competition in the hunt for nice house.

video

House Hunting Expedition

It was a big relieve when we finally decided on which flat interest us. We went to Edgware Road where the main office of the landlord which name is “ The Four Season’s Property”. Settle part of the holding deposit and then we head to Tesco in Bayswater and finally went to Hyde Park to relax for a while. These are some of the pictures when we are in Hyde Park around the Round Pond.

And then … Back to the stressful preparation for the FINALS.. Wish me luck cause I need loads of them!!

Visit Liverpool (Continued)

Well well!! This is the last post for Visit Liverpool. It began at 1400hr when Wee Seng and I leave the construction site and start heading to Liverpool Cathedral – Liverpool - Viewed from top of Liverpool Cathedralone of the most amazing structure in Liverpool. We went in there to take a look in it and I bought a ticket or pass to get up to the Cathedral Top. It was astonished by the scenery of this city. That was our first touch down of the day. From there, we walked all the way to John Lennon and Me at the Cavern Clubthe Cavern Club. You must be wondering what is so interesting about the Cavern Club – a club made world famous by The Beatles. It is located along the Matthew Street, Liverpool. Due to time constraint, these were the two places we manage to visit. And the last destination was a Buffet restaurant. It was extremely cheap (cost me about GBP5.50). There are 2 type of soup, chicken in variety, pork, ‘Siu Mai’, Sushi, rice / friend rice, and many more. Overall, it was a wonderful experience to be here, Liverpool..

Visit Liverpool – Easter Holiday

Continued from the previous post*. Volunteering was just part of our plan in Liverpool but visit this well known city was our main motive :P. We arrived at the Lime Street Train Station after 2 hours ride on VIRGIN Train. The train was fast haha. forget about the train – not the main subject of this post:P.  The first destination we visited was the Albert Dock 
Albert Dock

, a place of World Heritage with a waterfront setting. The reason why I chose this place as my starting point of my Liverpool exploration was due to what they have there in Albert Dock. Starting from the Pump House, a popular cafe, Tate Liverpool – full of arts, Merseyside Maritime Museum – there is Titanic model in it with its story, International Slavery museum – where I learned most of the slaves and where about they came from. You can find The YellowDuckMarine making its SPLASHDOWN in Salthouse Dock  which is a very unique experience in Liverpool. Of course the must see place is the legendary Rock band – THE BEATLES
. We didn’t went into The Beatles Story cause it was GBP12.95 per-entry. Not worthy since I am not a big fan of The Beatles.



Ha ha. A part from Albert Dock, we (Wee Seng and I) went to have a look at the Walker Art Gallery (free) – Here we could see human sculpture and also special artist exhibition from time to time. We also managed to get into the World Museum Liverpool around half past four in the afternoon. Unfortunately the museum was closing in 15 minutes time. So we managed to run up into the EGYPT mummies exhibition to get some pictures with the MUMMIES!! Scary HUH…  It was about 6.00pm and we checked in to International Inn. This place is quite cosy and cheap to stay. Very suitable for backpackers or cheapskate like me:P The day didn’t stop right there but after having dinner with one of  Wee Seng’s ex-classmate in one of the cheap restaurant (every place is cheap) we went to see the famous sign board – THE PENNY LANE. Ha ha. it is just right in front of her hall anyway. No big deal for her :D And that was for the first day. Interesting huh!  There’ll be another post on the last day of our visit in Liverpool.
