Apologies bloggie for abandoning you! Was too busy with my life which is filled up by studies, games and loved ones :)

Just finished my 2nd year in UoA, its quite a fruitful year, met a few seniors from INTI Nilai and INTI Penang this year. Sue came over as well so I had plenty of company and did not felt as lonely as the first year which i came to Adelaide, the only people which i could chat at night through msn was only Fern... Felt pretty lonely and super homesick back then...

There is still time (about 19 days) before my journey back home :P which I'm eagerly awaiting for that day to arrive. Missed the good food in Penang, my family, friends and that special someone. Can't wait for the moment when I sink my teeth on a healthy (more like unhealthy) amount of Ramli Burger and a good serving of seafood. Missed the times when I wonder around aimlessly in Gurney Plaza, Prangin Mall and Queensbay Mall with a book of manga in my hands :P

Now I need to spend sometime thinking of ways to entertain myself without spending too much money to kill time until the date when I depart from Adelaide. I feel unusually bored at night because I don't want to disturb Fern as she is busy studying for the ongoing STPM and most of my usual gang as already gone back home.

Spent the last few weeks exploring the remainder parts of South Australia which I haven't visited such as McLaren Vale, some of the beaches along the west coast and Port Adelaide (dolphins!).

So my plans for the next few weeks should be: following my aunts when they bring Jia Yong's mom around, swimming in Aquatics center, remove the weeds around my house, swim at the beach (glenelg here I come!) and say some last farewells to the 3rd years who I might not meet ever again after they graduate this year before I go back to Penang.

Last but not least, I will pray for my friends who are sitting for SPM and STPM to have a fruitful exam and may all of them achieve their dreams. This points out especially to Fern and Josephine! Study hard you two!!!

Making Dim Sum - Siu Mai

Well this is going to be the first post on a series of Dim Sum making by me & Chong. But first, let me express my joy at being able to finish my research paper on time:


Ok, Calmed down now. Lets continue shall we:

Recipe for Chicken (not pork because of swine flu) Siu Mai
-Chicken meat (I used thighs)
-Soy Sauce
-White Pepper
- Dumpling skin (Do not mistaken it for some other skin)
-Cooking oil/ Olive oil
  1. Chong de-boned the thighs and minced the meat along with chunks of shrimp and added soy sauce, salt and white pepper to taste.
  2. I wrapped 1 table spoon of the minced meat with 1 layer of Dumpling skin.

It should look something like this.

A close up of one of the dumplings I've made.

3. Steam it for 15-20 minutes on low fire.
4. Ready to serve :)

Steam~ Steam~ (15 minutes)


Ready to serve! Bon apetit~

Time for a haircut?

Its been ages since I last blogged about something... I've been busy lately, with most of my time spent on making up on the lectures which I've missed, playing The Last Remnant and of course dotA :)

Its been almost 3 months since my last haircut, and my hair looks like crap now because it has started to curl up a bit. Why can't I have normal straight hair just like the 1.4 billion Chinese in China? That would make my life easier as I could style my hair to my heart's content ;) I had a few hairstyles in mind, tell me what u think of them.

Long hair comb back style by mike he (will probably take me an eternity to grow hair as long as his)

Love this 1 the best but I don't think its even possible for my hair since its so curly ~_~

Some person with the hairstyle which I like (ignore the face) :D

Last but not least, some pics of the super leng chai lead character from FFXIII versus. I want his hair *evil grin* Lol...

Well, this is my current hair length... See all the curls? Sigh... Long way to go... Need to remove those sideburns...

First experience in Red Square, Adelaide

I often hear that Red Square wins by a faltering margin compared to the 2nd most popular club in town, HQ. Why? Although HQ is Way bigger (it has like 5-6 dance floors) compared to only 2 small ones in red square, but most important is the people in the club right? :P Chinese likes to go red square more compared to HQ, HQ has more Australians. So it comes down to each individual's taste but I'll gladly stick with Red Square.

Ok lets talk about last night shall we? Sue asked me to go with her friends so I decided to bring Wilson, Chong and Alex along. When we changed into our outfit for the night, I was a bit worried because Wilson and Chong's shirt (they wore plain shirts) wasn't quite suited for clubs but I hoped for the best... Turned out I was wrong ~_~

So they got rejected into Red Square, but I was suppose to meet Sue inside. So Alex called them to go to a nearby bar to have a drink to wait a while before going back and try their luck again when there is lesser people. Usually the bouncers give excuses like "your shirt matches mine and so according to the security regulations you are restricted entry and bla bla bla...."

Witnessed a couple of fights in alley ways and even the main road which the police subdued immediately. There were a lot of them. Lucky for me ~_~

So after 2 hours of lining up (including Sue leaving because her friends wanted to go home just after 2 hours inside :P) I got in. Alex got occupied that night because a girl he met last week came up lets say "occupied" him. Hahaha! I knew he was in terrible pain but at least the girl is not a dinosaur right? She bought a friend who was not bad looking which she introduced to me but my head was already woozy from two shots of tequila and a shot of the deadly Bacardi 151 rum (75.5% alcohol). BTW, its highly flammable in room temperature.

Then out of nowhere, suddenly a Hong Kong guy came in and started to butt-hump the girl which I was talking with just a moment ago. I didn't stop him because I thought that she knew the guy because they were talking and the girl didn't show any sign of distress. Then when I went to the dance floor, I noticed something odd... There were about 6 guys dancing around me wearing striped shirts which were the Hong Kong guy's friend. They were like in a formation and I'm about to find out what were they up to later.

I saw that there were girls interested in dancing with me when I was at the dance floor. When they moved in closer to my proximity, they were sandwich by 2 guys from the striped-shirt gang. So basically they were being molested (suck water in Cantonese, by Alex). Can't really stand those a**holes. About 5-6 girls came up beside me which wanted to dance and they humped them away. I don't really care because I don't know the girls. Met 2 Japanese inside, Yuuhei and Hiro. They were my pals for the night as Alex was occupied with his chick :P

After the dance, Alex sat down with me and told me stories about the stripped shirt gang. He said they come here almost every Saturday night and usually find pretty and hot chicks to butt hump and sandwich dance. Usually they get into fights, but I'm not picking one tonight. 2 vs 6 is not a great idea. At about 5 pm, the girl which I talked to earlier was being dragged by them to god knows where, I didn't noticed but Yuuhei went and saved her. Apparently she was being dragged to K-box by the stripped shirt gang. Thanks Yuuhei, your the man! We danced till the last song which was 6am in the morning. After that, Alex, His 2 girl friends, Yuuhei, Hiro and me went for breakfast in the Pancake shop. We chatted till it was about 7.30am then I went to wait for my bus. Unfortunately the first bus comes at 8.20am so I had to sit there for about 40 mins. The worst part is, I slept through my house and had to walk back from Henly Beach which took me about 40 mins of walking. Tough luck!

All in all, I think Red Square is better than Mois in Penang because they control the amount of person entering the club which made it possible to dance and there were lots of rooms to walk around. Nice :)

Lucky - Cathy Nguyen & AJ Rafael

I changed the song on my blog again, but this time its a recording by 2 people on youtube which I found and fell in love with their music. They are just normal people who sung the song "Lucky ~ Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat" Their version was wayyyy nicer than the original song. Listen to it! Highly recomended!

Try watching the clip if you can, the quality is better than recorded version I use for my blog!

Cathy Nguyen (looks like someone?) Lol, she is more pretty in the clip than her pic here!

AJ Rafael (Same, he is so talented in his guitar, looks better in the clip too :P)

Lucky - Cathy Nguyen & AJ Rafael

Do you hear me,
I'm talking to you
Across the water across the deep blue ocean
Under the open sky oh my, baby I'm trying
Boy I hear you in my dreams
I feel your whisper across the sea
I keep you with me in my heart
You make it easier when life gets hard

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Ooohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

They don't know how long it takes
Waiting for a love like this
Every time we say goodbye
I wish we had one more kiss
I'll wait for you I promise you, I will

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
I'm lucky we're in love in every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

And so I'm sailing through the sea
To an island where we'll meet
You'll hear the music, feel the air
I'll put a flower in your hair
Though the breezes through trees
Move so pretty you're all I see
As the world keeps spinning round
You hold me right here right now

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
I'm lucky we're in love in every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

Ooohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooooh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

Making Lasagna

Spent last saturday making Lasagna with Wilson, Chong was the taster, it was a huge success, going to make it again, soon :P

After lots of work making the special sauce which was handed down from generation to generation by my ansestors :P The lasagna ready to be put into the oven.

Patiently waiting for it to be cooked (Of course we didn't wait there for the whole 50 mins!)

Close up of the lasagna in the oven

This is how it came out! (looks good!)

Me doing the honours as one of the head cooks :P
