Chicken BKT

[ (鸡)肉骨茶 ]

BKT, aka Bak Kut Teh, is one of the best food in Malaysia. We malaysian, who came so far away to India, always miss our home country food, especially Chinese food. BKT Pack that Ling brought all the way from Malaysia, has really solved our home sick.

Today, we made ourself Chicken BKT. Hm.. It's really hard to get pork meat in India, so we use chicken as alternative. Well, got no other choice.. To be exact, we made Chicken BKT Steamboat, We throw everything inside the soup, which include the assorted vege, dried mushroom, and white mushroom..

The soup cooked by Dou-Dou, to view a more detailed report, you may visit her blog at 豆记自制鸡肉茶. Where other ingredients, are prepared by JT. Haha.. You asks what about me? Well, I'm just sitting here waiting to eat of course!! +D

(Left) White mushroom, one of the specialty here I believed. Taste fantastic.
(Right) Sweet corn, and the hm.. I don't really know what is this called in English, but in Chinese, it's 芫茜. Chinese Parsely perhaps?

(Left) Again, not sure what is this called in English. In Chinese, it's 生菜. Chinese Cabbage perhaps? And, some little corns. The corns taste crunchy, so yummy.
(Right) This is another type of vege, which I also not sure what is this called in English. (My goodness..) In Chinese, this is called, 黄芽白.

The BKT soup. We used 8 pieces of chicken drumsticks for this, and some dried mushroom, and garlics.

Frankly, it doesn't taste like BKT. After all, this is just BKT soup pack, what do we expect too much? Or it could be the reason of I didn't get to taste the first round of the soup. They said the soup after the first round, taste lower. Plus, we put too many 'other' ingredient in the soup.. The taste actually ran..

My new hostel in India

[ 印度新宿舍 ]

It's been two weeks ever since we moved in. From "extremely dirty" to "acceptable", we have really spent much effort in it.

Well, at least the location of the new hostel is much convenient. There are few supermarkets nearby, all within walking distance. We wouldn't have to beg people to arrange driver for us next time for any groceries shoppes.

And, well, at least this new hostel has the feel of a HOME. Although it's much smaller than the previous one, but hell, I like the feeling here more.

It's just one problem, a BIG one. There isn't any WASHING MACHINE in the hostel!!! OMG!!! I used to have problem with my hands, well actually my skin. Some kind of allergic decease, am allergic to those chemical products, and dirts. Now I have to wash my clothes all by myself, using my hands! My goodness.. I can't imagine what my hands would be after three months..

Sigh.. Anyway I do not wish to move around again. Just let me spend the coming three months peacefully, and let me go back HOME. That's it!

OK, now it's picture time..

JT's Room

(Left) JT's bed, filled with her stuff. Haha.. She was half way rearranging her stuff the moment photo been taken.
(Right) Opposite to the bed, is the cabinet, and the toilet's room.

(Left) The door to balcony. Well, this is the only room with balcony.
(Right) The toilet, also after being washed thoroughly.

My Room

(Left) My bed. It's actually a combination of two single bed, so basically I can't sleep at the middle, or else I'll get backache the next day.
(Right) The corner where I used to get online. Oh well, the small cabinet is rather too high, I can't really sit there for long hours, or else My shoulders will be very tired, and my back will get ached.

(Left) My toilet, before washed. Gosh, it's really disgusting that I nearly want to vomit the moment I saw it.
(Right) My toilet, after washed. I've spend few hours in it, to brush it with my full efforts. Of course, with the help of the sweet clorox! To my dear clorox, without you I really don't know how to survive..

The view after my window.

This is the home for the poor. Basically they are groups of camps, yes, people do live in there.

Slightly further, there are few three-storey bangalows.

Hm.. The funny thing is you can actually find the poor and the riches, staying next to each others. There isn't something like this particular area is what we called, high standard housing area. Everything just mixed together. You may just find a very beautiful castle right next to a 'balia' dirty camp.

The FIRST Anti-Pirates Dog Center in the WORLD

[ 大馬將成立全球首個反盜版的警犬單位 ]

Extracted form Sin Chew Jit Poh,

(吉隆坡) 大馬將成立全球首個反盜版的警犬單位,以打擊盜版光碟活動。

以美國為基地的電影協會(Motion Picture Association)的代表表示,它已捐贈兩只拉不拉多太柏迪(Paddy)和曼尼(Manny)給國內貿易及消費部,它們將首次公開露面,他們的任務是用嗅覺偵察CD和DVD。




To me, it seems like a piece of good news.

Although, it's still the matter of the word "NUMBER ONE". Well, at least it proved to the world(malay's world) the ability of doggies.

I really hope that they would change their point of view upon dogs, and started to appreciate them.

And, I really hope they won't use it as a weapon to gain the title, NUMBER ONE, and make them strayed later on.
