MyLife Talk: 10km Run, LRT Down, Bro Job

MyLife Talk:
  • 10km Run training progress, did not work out lately. The last training was running 7km for 1 hour.
  • This morning feeling piss off with the RapidKL LRT. Need to take a cab to KLCC from Masjid Jamek.
  • My younger brother got a job! Congrats to him....

Bali Holiday - Tanah Lot

Floating temple ....
  • People tell me that when I come to Bali, must go to Tanah Lot to see the floating temple. In my mind, I was thinking of a raft with a small temple riding on it.
  • Did not know it was a huge rock island and they built a temple on top of it. During high tide, you not able to walk to the temple.
  • Everyone will come here for the breath taking sunset view while enjoying beer and coconut at the sunset terrace at the hill top.

Top left pic:- Best sunset view so far I've seen! People even brought a huge video cam and canggih DSLR....paiseh with my small olympus camera Bottom right pic:- Yve daring to go to the edge to take the picture with the big wave hitting the rock behind her. I saw one person got drench by the wave....no way I am getting myself wet!


Is not expensive to order a coconut (RP 15,000 only) and enjoy the sunset view....Oh yes, if you want to buy souvenirs, buy at this place...is cheaper compare to other places!

Bali Holiday - Uluwatu, amazing view!

ULUWATU .... another bali attraction that you must GO!
  • Went to Uluwatu during my 3rd day at Bali .... I thought it is just another temple.
  • Went walk further in .... WHOAhhhh! I am amazed by the cliff and the scenery.
  • The best part is, I manage to see dolphins jumping around....

Amazing scene....like the Australia Twelve Apostle's....


Now I know this Uluwatu place...always saw pictures in people blogs taking this picture. Finally I am here to experience the view by myself ....


When my next trip back to Bali, I will come here again .... even my tour guide driver say he love to come here with his clients .... enjoy the strong wind and the beautiful scenery. Oh yeah, do not wear your sunglasses at this place...beware of the monkey attacking you from behind!

Bali Holiday - Half nude picture....XXX rated

Here I am before I gain weight....
  • Sorry to dissapoint that I did not take any nude babes ... in fact I was busy half nude walking along the kuta street back to the hotel.
  • Went to Segara beach early in the morning...is situated next to Kuta beach.
  • Planning to do some sun bathing at here.
  • Did some strectching and some light exercise to burn off some calories.

The wind was strong and cooling....many people went for jogging and bringing their dogs to play at the beach. Time to do some cam whoring before sun bathing....

Bali Holiday - Dinner at Dulang Cafe and Kuta Town Night Scene

Amazing night scene at Bali....
  • After a long stay at the Kuta beach and watch the sunset. Went for a walk along the Kuta street and to see the night life at Kuta.
  • The pubs and restaurants is packed with people drinking and dining.
  • Had my dinner at Dulang Cafe.

Ordered the famous Bali coffee, very kao taste and Yve love kao coffee! I just had the fresh coconut cooler .... their local curry chicken rice and fried rice noodle taste good. Finally we found a good local food which taste nice and yummy. The price for this kind of foods and drinks at Kuta is bout RP 150,000 inclusive 15% tax.


Here is pics of the Dulang Cafe ambience....


The kuta street is full of branded retail shops and coffee cafes. Took some night scene pics along the street. It was a chilling night at Kuta.

Bali Holiday - Kuta Beach & Kuta Street

Relaxing holiday @ Bali...
  • After check-in into the hotel, I can't wait to go to the famous Kuta beach.
  • Before heading to the beach, need to grab some food first. Went to Discovery Mall and hunt for some local foods in there.
  • My journey at Bali begins here....

We walked along the street to the Kuta Beach. Don't worry of walking along the street side, it is shady and windy and you don't feel hot at all. The only thing you need to worry is the pot holes and un-even side walks path. Oh yes, it is safe too!


This is the best part, the beach was packed with lots of people with sexy bikini babes and hunks, you really need to wear sunglassess to wash eye! The beach was very cold cause the sea water is coming from Aussie. My comment is that the Kuta Beach is not an ideal place to swim cause of the rough sand and the water is not that clear. But it is a good place for sun bathing and water sports activities.


We went for some window shopping for souvenirs. Just want to know their local souvenir price. Went to try their bali body massage...cost RP 95,000 for an hour. Is quite expensive cause after that, we saw there is RP 50,000 an hour massage. Went and check out the Bali Hard Rock cafe.


Took some pics of the hotel along the street, restaurant and the beach as well.


Had our first local food at Discovery Mall ... the Fruit ABC was too sweet and the ice is huge to swallow. We enjoy the western food much more to their local food. I would say their local food taste either sweet or salty only....Malaysia food is still the best!

Datin K promotion celebration

Chilli Espresso @ SOoka Sentral
  • Thanks to Datin K for the lunch treat. Congrats to Datin K on her promotion ...this is the main reason for her treat.
  • It's my first time to eat at Chilli Espresso since it opened. Can see their business is getting better than the Zen Restaurant.
  • The food and drinks was superbly nice and great...thou is expensive for the price.... RM 14.50 for the fried rice and RM 9 for the ice mocha...but the portion was huge.

The ice mocha is very kao...love the bitter mocha taste. The fried rice is nice except the fried ikan bilis, is like over nite kind of taste...not crispy and crunchy.


The ayam percik is a must try! ... and as well the banana honey smoothies....Yes, Dato & Datin K in action again...

Melaka Cendol & Nyonya laksa

My mind is on the food only...
  • I forgotten the name of the place and forgotten to take the pic of the stall and friends....mind mind me....The food just got into my head only....
  • This stall is located nearby the Jonker Walk .... I came here before many times when I brought my friends came down to visit Melaka.
  • Seok Yan suggested to have lunch at this stall for the Sago Cendol and Nyonya laksa....oooo, best ler, i drank the soup finish and the cendol as well.

Penang cendol could not fight with Melaka cendol version cause of the Gula Melaka.... I just don't know why Nyonya laksa taste better than KL Curry laksa?

Jon Eddy Abdullah farewell party aka Maxis COO

Good Bye Jon!

  • A week ago, Maxis got a shocking news that Jon Eddy will be leaving Maxis to join a Pakistan telco as CEO.
  • He is one of the friendliest COO I've ever met and know ... he is married to a Malaysian and he loves Malaysia food and life.
  • Oh yeah, I hope he would sell his Ferrari for 50% half price and his Tropicana house!.....kekekeke.
  • ISD & NEO organized a farewell party specially for him at Plaza Sentral (Maxis Technology Center).
  • It was super packed with thousands over staff attending his farewell. And yes, the food was superbly yummy!

You got to wait 45 minutes before you able to take the food...long long queue. The best part is, comittee members got to eat first...ngiak ngiak ngiak.
  • Honestly I must tell you that working in 012 company, you will grow fat and fatter! This is for sure which I can guarantee you...one of the best company benefit - gain weight!


I think every staff is enjoying the food more than the farewell, different kind of food served! Even Jon mention that it seems more like a birthday celebration compare to a farewell celebration...hahaha

Von La Restaurant - Vietnamese Foods

Yummy or not?
  • Here is the food review base on my vietnamese food experience.
  • I must say the price was very cheap compare to KL.
  • For the taste, it taste very normal and below my expectation.
  • The beef noodle soup got no strong taste of beef ... taste like normal kuey teow soup.
  • The only good thing which taste good is the vietnamese coffee!
  • Overall, we enjoy the friendly service from the boss itself.

The prawn spring roll was normal....can buy from Tesco....the paper spring roll rice was ok ok nia.


Thought it was a stuffed crab...but more to crab fishball kind...dissapoineted a bit. The scallop was normal and the fried seafood springroll taste nice cause got seafood mah! The satay lilit taste ok but not as good as the BumbuBali.

Von La Vietnamese Restaurant, Melaka + Dennis n Mei Chen ~ Newly husband n wife couple

First vietnamese food experience at Melaka
  • Thanks to Dennis and Mei Chen for introducing this vietnamese restaurant at Melaka. Normally, people will go for normal local Melaka food like nyonya laksa, nyonya food, chicken rice ball, satay celup and etc.
  • This time, we go for something which we can eat at KL too cause we are curious to know how is Vietnamese food taste like in Melaka. We are bored with local Melaka food at the moment.
  • Here Von La aka Vietnamese Restaurant located at Melaka Raya.

Price was way cheaper than KL. Beef Noodle only RM 5.50 but in KL cost RM 10.90! Yve was checking out the cool sunglasses from Dennis. Will comment the food later on in my other post.

Congrats to Dennis & Mei Chen and thanks for the treat...
  • Sorry for not able to attend their ROM last 2 months...so we got to meet up when me and yve back to Melaka.
  • Everyone was happy that Dennis (Mr. Playful) finally settled down with a nice and loving wife - Mei Chen.
  • Dennis is Yve hometown friend...and he eventually became my snooker buddy.


Nice group pic, L-R: Mei Chen, Dennis, Yve, Seok Yan, Hwang Tai

  • Nevermind, will try and fried till perfection.
