Merry Christmas 2013

December 26, 2013 at 12:55 PM

I’d like to wish everyone celebrating, MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Merry Christmas from Tany

My Christmas was boring. I did have a kinda okay Christmas eve though. Went out , saw my friend, had a nice dinner and a nice coffee time. I’ve had so much shit happening to me this month, including the death of my 2 beloved kittens, one of them being sick for almost a week and I had to take care of her like a sick person, only to receive a blow that none of my effort could help save her but instead I probably made her more miserable and in more pain. But on the day she died, the other cat gave birth to 2 new tiny babies. Also faced an unexpected death of my hamster which I will elaborate more in a new post soon.

I also had some munchies for my planned Christmas movie marathon which ended up being just a movie a day/night. I was so tired that I ended up watching only a few movies. Here are some of the movies in my list:

  • A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas [watched]
  • Disney’s A Christmas Carol [watched]
  • Christmas with the Kranks [watched]
  • A Christmas Story
  • Home Alone 1 & 2
  • Elf

And also watched Harry Potter 1,3 and 4 since there was HP movie marathon on Christmas. I’ll continue to watch more later tonight if I’m not tired. I just have to try and settled the piles of problems I’m having at the moment.

Received these as gift!

Christmas gift wonka gobstopper candy canes and Coffee Bean gingerbread men

My friend gave me those Wonka’s gobstopper candy canes because I love wonka candies and also a couple of gingerbread men from The Coffee Bean. I fucking love gingerbread man cookies and I am currently sad that I’ve devoured them.

Craving for more.

Also bought this malay novel. It was an impulse purchase in an attempt to try to understand why malay novels are popular right now.

Novel

It better be good and won’t put me to sleep because malay novels usually bore me to death.

Stressful Days

August 1, 2012 at 1:21 PM

I seriously can’t remember when my life after high school has been stress free. I don’t even remember how being stress free feels like.

This past few days, I’ve been going crazy with Japanese craft stuff. I’ve always liked it but never cared because usually it’s quite a costly hobby but now I think I need to have this kind of hobby as stress reliever. I’ve also been crazy again about Japanese DIY candies!

Sinfully Delicious - Malaysia food blog - Popin' Cookin' DIY Candy

I’ve written about it in my Sinfully Delicious blog here: Popin’ Cookin‘ & Sushi Set Review

If you have no idea what it is, it’s a DIY candy in powder form that you mix with water like some kind of chemical experiments, and the chemical reactions will cause the mixture to turn into various type of candies/form/textures with cool effects. The most popular one are from Kracie called Popin’ Cookin‘ and NeruNeruNeruNe. Some resembles food that looks real, you wouldn’t believe that it’s actually candy made from mixing powder.

Well, because it’s very hard to get it in Malaysia, I’m thinking of importing the candies and sell it here. As far as I can see, there are only a couple of sellers, or maybe just one, who is barely active. There’s only 1 store in KL that imports it (as far as I’m concern) but not all the sets. I bought mine in the picture above from them. So hopefully I can offer the candies and some other Japanese DIY kits like eraser making and clay making and if there’s demand, miniature sets like re-ments to Malaysian market.

I’m still waiting for my shipment from Japan and I can’t wait. It’s too bad that some of the box are not halal. They all sure looks fun to play with. Here’s one of my favorite videos on Popin’ Cookin’ from the popular youtuber RRCherypie. I’ll choose the bento set video because it’s popular.

 

A lot of the cool sets that you can watch on youtube has been discontinued which really sucks, including the cupcake set above!

Salam Ramadan 2012

July 25, 2012 at 3:45 AM

Salam Ramadan!

Ramadan started last Saturday (21st July). It’s always hard the first few days especially when you go shopping and you can’t buy your favorite drink or eat your favorite snack. Then you see other races eating happily and all you could do is stare and salivating. For me, when fasting month comes, my stomach automatically couldn’t digest food and I don’t know why. Usually I’d eat a lot but this past few days I haven’t had any appetite. And that’s weird considering that this is the time for RAMADAN BAZAAR! Yessss.

Bazar Ramadhan Greentown Ipoh 2012

I went shopping with my friend last Sunday to waste some time and because it was still too early I decided to stop by at 2 different bazaars. Because it was Sunday, and people flocked to shopping malls and probably break their fast at restaurants in the malls, so the bazaar I always go to didn’t have that many people. I went to the Greentown one and it was crowded! Not as crowded as weekdays but still crowded.

I love Greentown bazaar due to the fact that it has my favorite tandoori chicken and naan – the best in Ipoh in my opinion. I’ll write more about the bazaar and its variety of foods soon at my food blog – Sinfully Delicious. Most of the pictures I took were quite blurry so I need to take some new ones.

Bazar Ramadhan Greentown Ipoh 2012

That guy is wearing a shirt that says ‘Pening’ (headache). ‘Pening’ is definitely right. I still haven’t taken the free porridge from the mosque. I miss it. Ahh I love Ramadan.

With the amount of food available, how can I not gain more weight? Seriously. I want to be skinny again.. do this work? -> http://www.shoppharmacycounter.com/t-phentermine.aspx

Wendy’s @ AEON Station 18 Ipoh

June 24, 2012 at 8:39 PM

Yes!

Wendy’s has finally opened in AEON Station 18 Ipoh!

Wendy's @ AEON Station 18 Ipoh

I have yet to eat at Wendy’s because  I went to AEON Station 18 I always ended up eating something else or don’t have the appetite to eat even though I miss my mushroom melt.. it’s been YEARS! Soon though. But I’m happy Wendy’s is finally available. I’ll do a review of it soon at my food blog Sinfully Delicious @ http://www.sinfully-delicious.net

I wish I can write longer but I’m so tired even though it’s only 8 pm.. and my laptop’s mouse has a mind of its own and is doing everything against my will.. I need a new mouse but I seriously wish they’d build a new place for computer stores instead of being at Yik Foong.. that old place is scary, feels like the building could collapse anytime and hard to find parking too.. kinda like low yat plaza in KL and digital mall in PJ.. why do they pick places so inconvenient to be computer related malls?

A Fun Day Trip to KL For A RedBox Karaoke Session

February 22, 2012 at 1:30 PM

I went back to KL/PJ yesterday for a day trip. I went there to see my friends, one of them is about to leave to London again. I miss hanging out and just wasting time walking in shopping malls with that girl. <3

I had a lot of problems planning my trip. It’s because I thought my uncle has gone to KL already and I have no one to send and pick me up to the train station. Taking a cab is SO EXPENSIVE. RM15 for a trip to my house that’s just a few minutes away? No way. So it was a tough time planning until night-time when my uncle finally called and he said he didn’t go to KL. Yay. And he’s willing to help pick me up. So that’s settled when another problem appeared – train tickets. Luckily I went to buy the tickets at 7 am for the 8.30am train and it was available. I also booked a return trip ticket for 5.35 pm. So everything is settled. Off I went to KL!

Of course I went with the ETS train. I got a window seat on coach A.

OMG the ETS train finally stopped playing Tom & Jerry on repeat! They played one of my favorite childhood movies ever – Little Giants! Too bad I couldn’t see clearly from where I was and there was no sound.. the last time I was on ETS train was April 2011 I think.. it was almost a year ago.

My meal on the train 😀 I haven’t had their ‘nasi lemak’ in ages.. I loved it. Particularly because the chicken rendang is just meat, no bones.. and it was delicious. Expensive meal, but delicious. The meal cost me RM8 something. It’s okay. It’s been one year since I last had the ‘nasi lemak’ so what the hell.

I reached KL Sentral at 10.35am, straight away took the RapidKL LRT to Taman Bahagia, then took at cab to The Curve which cost me only RM8 😀 I was supposed to meet my friends for a karaoke session at 11.30am but I reached there at 11.10 am which was surprisingly earlier than I expected! I went to Daiso for a bit, bought some stuff then rushed to RedBox.

They had the special lunch hour rate which includes set lunch for RM12++ per person so that was really affordable! We had this HUGE room for 3 people which was really nice. We had ample space for dancing haha

We had this creamy spaghetti (carbonara?) that came with a gigantic plate and lots of chicken, mushroom and prawns. It was really delicious. My friends ordered lychee drinks while I had the orange drink.

I didn’t take many pics because we dimmed the room dark, and my phone was on low battery so I had to leave it to charge. My friend started singing and it was quite awkward at first but once we got the groove on, oh man did we all go crazy. I think due to the song selections which we mixed with oldschool 90s and latest hits, and the room sounds like a club, we started dancing like crazy haha. It was so much fun! I haven’t had this much fun in ages! Also turns out we had the room from 12pm to 3 pm instead of 2 pm we thought at first, which gave us a lot of time to sing and dance and go crazy! I love these girls. It’s a fresh and nice change of atmosphere from my stuck up pretend goodie two shoes colleagues at work.

I was singing my lungs out until I got sore throat and almost lost my voice. Had to really release all the stress. Total bill came up to around RM41..so technically it was RM14 per person. Not bad at all for 3 hours of unlimited songs inclusive lunch! Alas, at 3 pm we had to leave. Said goobye to my friend Aznita and my friend Claudia and I just walked around in Cold Storage until we had to leave at 4.30 pm. Then I took the LRT from Kelana Jaya back to Sentral then back on the train to Ipoh.

That was the end of my trip. Overall I had a very fun day at karaoke that I very much needed. I’ve been in a lot of stress and tension lately with problems here and there so it felt really good to just let loose for a while, even though for only a short time.
