Shana Steals My Him Heang Biscuit

Been busying the last few days with my exams and got a Hang-Over after my trial. O.o" Life's tough and it sux. But can't help it. I haven't got the mood to post any writting for the last few days and I haven't even touch my LX3 since then.

After one week and I'm back here!! Hahaha... While browsing through my photos I noticed that some uploaded pictures have not been written up. So I decided, my Shana is changing her favourite food from the usual melon-pan to our famous Penang Him Heang Biscuit!

Actually my friend went over to Penang for a few days holiday. Thus, I asked her to order some of their local delicacies. When I got it home, Shana just couldn't stand still and were so excited to try out the biscuit.

The biscuit in Hokkien we usually call it Tau Sar Piah (豆沙并) or literally translated Bean Paste Biscuit. This prompted me to wonder, why westerners made more breads and easterner make more biscuits! Have you ever thought of that?

"Boss ist still thinking/dreaming there. Steal one to eat" - Shana

"Mmmm... Yummy! It looks so big. Bigger than my head! I wonder if I can finish it or not"

"And it's heavy too! It sure have alot of beans inside."

"I hope it taste better than Melon-pan"

*Bite! Munch~ Munch~*

"It taste sure good. With green bean taste, slightly sweet abit. Yummy!"

"Eat some more! This is delicious! ^.^ " - Shana

"Hey why so many biscuit had been missing! Who stole it arh?" - Shinky

"Shh.. Don't tell boss I took it. :P " - Shana

I heard there are other similar baker who bake this nicer. One day I should take a few days leave and go over Penang for a Holiday. ^.^

Thinking of Eating Japanese Food

It's been a while since I had my Japanese Cruisine. It was in Kluang at that time when I visited my cousin. Visited Idori Sushi~

Take a sip~ Ah~ The freshness of green tea warmly soak up your mouth quenching your thirst. Yes I prefer warm tea rather than cold tea even though the taste is still the same. The cold tea would actually freeze the food in my stomach and make me hard to digest. I would eventually have stomach pain. >.<"

A typical serving in a Japanese restaurant, you would see the shoyu sauce, wasabi and toothpick? It's so elegantly made with ancient Chinese writing?

The settings are romantic as well. Further inside there's individual private room for people who don't want to share the public atmosphere.

Here's the counter, nicely decorated. Usually a typical would have seats in front of the counter and the chef would serves fresh sushis. You can see how they demonstrate their skills. ^.^

The boss actually spend alot of money decorating this place. I guess the whole restaurant would nearly cost them a million or two for such designs. But in a small town like Kluang? Well, they're just too rich aren't they? ^.^

With plates like this, it's just so authentic! >.<" There's poem on your plate and it's with chop sign some more! Food have become poetic eh?
From a different perspective. Wanted to go look closer at the ship. But just plain too tired to walk around. Besides, mum said we need to sit properly in our seat during every meal? Table Manners? ^.^;;

While I can't make out what's the last word which is written in old chinese/japanese. It's actually the name of the restaurant -- Idori Sushi.

So as I was saying, the setting is nice, the tableware is so classic. Everything looks so classy liek you are in a fine dining restaurant. So where's the food?! O.o"

Really long time din't go for a Japanese Food already. After reading Myhorng's Tenji Japanese Buffet, really determine to go eat liao la~! Wazen! After my exam I will go! ^.^

The Morning Glories

I love travelling around. Especially when it's somewhere near the greeneries. The freshness of the air, the cooling weather and the freedom to move around. It's so fun!

The flowers are also very beautiful! Let's enjoy some beauty that I had taken up during my journey in the south.

It was early in the morning, when the fog were just starting to settle. The morning dew decorates the flower shinningly~

My dad taught me that when taking flower photos, there should be three sticked together in the picture. This way it form the shape of a triangle. I don't really know what's the term called, but I guess it's one of a good photo composition. ^.^

Soft white in the middle of greens. This reminds me of a recent campaign held, "I'm a stand out in life!" campaign held by tiger and nuffnang. ^.^ Come to think of it, I'm actually quite stand out in life. Actually, standing outside of community I belong do. People always think that I'm weird, eccentric and not blending in. But in any circumstances, it doesn't matter as long as I'm aware who I am. ^.^ It's not like they hate me or what...

Zooming in on the flower. Everywhere was wet. It's not like those marshy kind of wet, but it just wet. Maybe because of the morning dew or probably it rained the previous night which I can't remember because I was sleeping like a log. :P

I like gazing flowers. I really enjoy strolling in a flower garden. I remember last time when my dad was taking wedding photos of his colleague in a flower garden right in front of the Malacca's palace in Bandar Hilir. I'm not sure weather it's still there or not, but the area had been sealed up and became a tourist attraction.

I wished the government make more such places. More gardens, more parks. So that people can relax and enjoy; living a healthier lifestyle. Well, I think I have said enough. Time to gaze more flowers. ^.^

After writing so much, I suddenly remembered that I've seen similar photos of flowers from Frankie's blog. Here's the link to there. Nope I did not copied his. He's in the far east Kuching while I'm still in the the southern part of peninsular Malaysia. And I definately din't know he took those picture. Probably mine were even taken earlier than his! :P

I'm not too sure what's this flower. I noticed it along the way to a recreasional park. It's very unique and only found along this place. It grows on a tree in bunches like bunches of Rambutans!

Yeap! We thought it was blooming season at that time. It's still early of the year and rambutans are blooming already?! What more it's yellow!

The trees were all filled up and we were suggesting, since it's nobody's tree, why don't we just stop and pluck some to fill our stomach! ^.^;;

Yeah, here's your yellow rambutan freshly served. You wan some more? It's sweet and juicy you know.

Here's some spider lily. Remember the spider i took in my back to nature adventure? Well, aparantly it had fed enough and wrap itself in a cocoon for a few months. Yes months.

After the few months of hibernation, when spring comes, it turn into a magnificent flower! Just like butterflies. Only that butterflies would suck the honey from flowers but this spider lilies provides juicy honey to feed to insects. It's give back to the communities. ^.^

Here's a bunch of spiders to end the post. More flowers to come if I land on a garden or so~ Maybe I should pay Penang Botanical Garden a visit. Yeah, I will PAY it when my finance is right. >.<" ...

More Coffee Please

Once the sucess of Old Town Franchise, there were many high class coffee shops had popped out everywhere across the country. There's this Old Taste, Kluang Station, Uncle John and many more! Coffee had became a fad. It's a trend now and it's a lifestyle.

Was strolling around in a near empty Batu Pahat Mall. There wasn't much to offer. Seems like the economy is really bad in this area and there were many empty slots up for rent. We came to a cafe which the name was quite foreign to us.

The Dagan Rengit Coffee house. I'm not very sure weather the Dagan is the brand name and Rengit Coffee is the company name or vice versa. Never really asked in detail. The waiter who serves us also can't tell us much.

According to the waiter, it is an indonesian brand. The coffee beans are basically imported from Indonesia, brewed here and serves here. ^.^" The difference between the coffee there and the coffee there? Nobody can tells. I guess coffee just taste the same way like coffee always do! ^.^

We sat outside the interior part to watch the flowing traffic outsides. (Actually is because my cousin wanna smoke). Things were slow in BP. The day were cloudy. Nothing special in there.

It seems like the coffee house doesn't have much customer either. You can see all the tables and chairs neatly arranged, untouched. Come to think about it, the settings are actually not bad. Chairs are made from those rattans, coloured with dark brown green. The tables are also in dark green made of solid wood.

Serving time was okay. Not too fast nor slow either. Their packaging were similar to those Starbucks, Coffee Bean type kind of serving. All prepacked in a plastic cup nicely with a cap on.

The taste? White coffee taste lor! It's not black coffee so obviously it taste milky coffee. ^.^ I still prefer Nesspresso and Cappucino!

Back to Nature Adventure

Running on more adventures... There weren't much things to do in town. Except for shopping malls, the rest of the place are either industrial areas or greeneries. So me and couz decided to run around and do some exploration.

Shot this scene when I noticed this pack of woods are so tall up and grow together. As they say, birds of a feather flock together, trees of the same species grow side by sides. ^.^"

We went to the town outskirt to explore and we came to a its recreasional area. Can't really remember its name. It's something like a Gunung something Recreasional Park. They have a water park right beneath the hill foot. But we aren't here for swimming we decided to pass it and walk up the hill.

Yes, jungle tracking. The area wasn't actually well maintain. But they sure have many facilities there.

There's this air walker equipment prepared by the local council for people to exercise. This scene reminds me of my couz naming himself Jonathan Skywalker after being inspired by the Star Wars Trilogy. ^.^ There's another photo which portray him working hard on the machine. But then I did not upload it coz it's kind of repetition. You know why he gotta work so hard? The reason is the thingy at his left hand. Click on the photo and look closer and you will understand why... ^.^

They have this hanging bridge connecting across the mountain. As you can see, all not well maintained with fungus and algae growing on. There's even doodads as well. What a great piece of artwork!

Yup. That's my couz. He's doing the monkey stunts again. I guess staying in the jungle really turn you back into nature isn't it?

The bridge is long connecting to the other side of the hill. Below there were only a small stream flowing by. It wasn't anything to shout about. The water wasn't really clean either. There were alot of rubbish thrown in and it's really sux!

Travelling further up, the water is much clearer but it's still small. This picture that you see is only 3 feet wide! You can see they actually connected a black PVC water pipe up. I didn't travel up further since it was so tiring and the weather had began to turn hot. I wonder if the stream is man made, and the stream water is actually the water connected from the pipe! ^.^"

When you saw this picture, what would you have thought? That I'm standing on the edge of a dangerous cliff, doing some photography stunt, risking my life to take a smooth picture of a big waterfall for you guys to see? And probably win some National Geography Photo awards and join the professional photographer guilds? Nah! Dream on~ :P This is actually a macro shot! The so called waterfall was actually as big as your hand. And I'm really clinging on to a branch not to get my precious baby LX3 wet!

On our way back, saw this spider hanging on to some leaves. It suddenly strikes me that Robin had some fetish on doing such posts! Maybe I should take some and consult the master... ^.^ Show me the way master...
