Makan2 @ Kenny Rogers

It's nice to go out for lunch early once in a while. So that was what I did yesterday. Me and a few other colleagues decided to go out quite early for lunch, and the destination was Subang Parade. Subang Parade kept such a lot of fond memories during my study years, as we always loitering at the place when there's no class, meeting friends and such. Nothing much has changed since then, I can still recognize where the exact shops are located, and where to find things needed. So we decided just take a walk around for a while and decided to go for makan at Kenny Rogers. I haven't been to this place for quite some time, so it kinda excites me a little loooking at the chickens rolling in the oven. The muffin is to die for, though. No place can ever compare the delicious muffins made by Kenny Rogers I can say. Nothing much has changed, except for the price and the interior of the restaurant, so nicely decorated nowadays... heheheh! So we all decided to take quarter chicken with the 3 side dishes. lots of varirties of side dishes to choose, and I'm settled for mac & cheese, coleslaw and gagrden salads.
Fizi took the quarter chic with mac & cheese, fruit salad and mash potatoes... ...while Ryan opt for garden salad, mash potatoes and potatoes w herbs, all served with muffins. We ate religiously due to great starvation and in 10 minutes, everything was settled.
Great food! Good service! Those who haven't been to Kenny Rogers for some time, why not think about visitin the place again? You will not regret it...

Movies @ GSC Midvalley

It's Wednesday, and it's movie time again! This time my friends booked me 2 movies, and one of them is a Malay movie, Cuci (means wash). It's been a while since I last watched Malay movie, with hopes that it won't put me on sleep during the movie. Let's check out the review.
CUCI Synopsis: Four adopted brothers - Jojo (Awie), Fairil (Afdlin Shauki), C'tan (AC Mizal) and Khai (Hans Isaac) - leave their kampung and head to Kuala Lumpur to make it big in the cleaning business. Fairil, the most ambitious of the four, inspires them to enter the Window Washing Olympics for the most coveted contract of all - cleaning the windows of KLCC. But the brothers would have to survive the allure of organiser CJ (Erra Fazira) as well as stiff competition from current champion and contract holder Wira (Khir Rahman) to win the title. (Source:
*** Nice malay movie to watch, sceptical jokes, but quite funny in terms of how they come out with the wordings usage. I like it most when Khai and Wira looking into the eyes of each other as if they wanna fight, and it turns out that as soon as Wira blinks, Khai laughed and told him that he looses the game.. Funny! As usual, something interesting you can get from these 4 stooges, so for coming out with a malay movie that's not cliche, good job, man!

RAMBO 4 Synopsis:
In Rambo 4, Vietnam War veteran John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) lives a peaceful life as a fisherman cum boatman. He has long traded in his guns for a fishing reel. One day, human rights missionaries Sarah Miller (Julie Benz) and Michael Bennett (Paul Schulze) show up asking Rambo to take them to Salween by boat so they can get some much needed food and medical supplies to the desperate Karen tribe. Initially Rambo refuses to bring Sarah and the missionaries to Burma, but after much persuasion by Sarah, Rambo somehow realizes that these refugees will most certainly die without aid. After two weeks, Pastor Arthur Marsh (Ken Howard) arrives with a message that the aid workers never returned from their mission into the jungle, and the embassies refuse to help Marsh and his fellow missionaries find their missing friends. Pastor Marsh knows that Sarah, Michael, and the rest of the missing missionaries are being held hostage by the Burmese army and therefore, he has hired a group of mercenaries for a rescue mission and needs Rambo to guide them to the village the army resides. *** Quite boring at the start, but really cool towards the end. Expect lots of violence and blood, although I can say it’s too hard to really diffentiate the amount of blood shed between John Rambo and others. Seems like he's the holy man with no blood coming out from his vein. Watch this if you are a Rambo fan and have watched all the movies in the Rambo series. There's no direct connection between the three previous films and Rambo 4, but it's still ok since he already tone down a bit in the movie and allow others to take part in the movie too. Good movie to watch, but not recommendable for kids under 12, as the elemnts of violence and sex were involved in this movie.

Hot Balloons

Another hectic day in the office. Stress is all around, and temper is running short around the people in the office. I need something refreshing and soothing to look at, and found these few marvelous photos. Just sharing with all the beauty of hot balloons flying in the air... Such a wonderful scenery over the air... I wonder where the location is... Anyone?

Too Much To Handle

It's Monday again... Monday Blues! OMG... I'm sleepy, tired and grumpy from the weekend activities. Anyway, just sharing this with all...
When things in your life seem almost too much to handle; when 24 hours in a day are not enough; remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 cups of coffee...
A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar
and proceeded to fill it with golf balls.
He then asked the students if the jar was full.They agreed that it was. The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls.
He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was. The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else.
He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with an unanimous "yes". The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.
"Now," said the professor as the laughter subsided, "I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life.
The golf balls are the important things --your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions--- and if everything else was lost and only they remained; your life would still be full.
The pebbles are the other things that matter; like your job, your house and your car.
The sand is everything else---the small stuff.
"If you put the sand into the jar first," he continued, "there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls.The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you.
"Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your spouse out to dinner. Play another 18.There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal.
Take care of the golf balls first --the things that really matter-- Set your priorities. "The rest is just sand."
One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented. The professor smiled.
"I'm glad you asked. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem; there's always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend."

Morale of the story: Paham2 sendiri laaa... Go find it on your own!! Hehehe!

Makan2@ Moon's Kitchen

I've been a regular at this place called Moon's Kitchen in Pandan Indah some time ago, but lately, as I'm quite busy with stuff, I stopped visiting this place for my makan2. Anyway, as I was in Pandan Indah area just now meeting friends, we just dropped by for dinner here.Moon's Kitchen served mainly Western dishes, very yummylicious at an affordable price dishes. Located at the Hawker Stall behind the 7-11 along the Fire Station route, this place is normally packed with people during dinner time. Surprisingly, the service is quite fast and people can get their fresh food at the average of 10 minutes after the order. I had Chicken Chop with sweet & sour sauce, a tender juicy fried chicken served with the special sweet sour sauce, with fries and coleslaw. It's just yummy to the last bite, and looking at the big portion of the meal, it is considered quite cheap at RM9.90. Meanwhile, my friend had Hot plate Steak combined with black pepper and BBQ sauce. The interesting thing is that we can choose what kinda sauce that we like, or can mix and match up to our liking. Served with fries and mixed vege, it is priced at RM11.90. Cheap eh? Lots and lots of other western menus awaiting those who are the western food lovers. Though it’s just a stall, but the lovely food surely guarantees their customers will come again and again, errmmmm... and one of them is me... heheh! Go try yourself!

My Hungry Fishes

Thank god it’s Friday… All I hafta do is to just sit tight until the end of working day and later get ready for the weekend… Happy Weekend Guys!
Anyway… as promised, here’re some photos of the ever hungry fishes from my small pond that some of my friends want me to share... Well, the fishes are all getting bigger day by day, and I believe that soon enough, I hafta make a bigger pond for them already, may be in a next few months. Check out the orange Koi... she is the most over-reacting one during the feeding time. She can take out almost her whole head out of the water to assure that she got the most food. Over betulll! The rest aren't as aggressive as her.. It's so relaxing watching all these fishes swimming around. Though they don't bite my feet like the one in the Fish Spa @ Pavilion, it's really soothing to see them active and healthy day by day...
