O'Briens Irish Sandwich Cafe

Was driving to work this morning, has to be there before 8am, to get myself a daily parking slot.

Yeah, it's very difficult to get a parking around my office area. Moreover, the parking fees is extremely expensive! Try to imagine the below rates, of course this is applicable for daily rate only, seasonal parking are all full !
  • RM15 - location A located just next door, has to reach before 8am to entitle, basement parking
  • RM15 - location B located about walking distance 5 mins, reach 8.30am still have empty slot, open area
  • RM 8 - location C located about walking distance 5 mins, has to reach at 7am to entitle, open area
  • RM 5 - location D located about walking distance 5 mins, has to reach at 7am to entitle, open area.
  • RM 0 - location E located about walking distance 20-25 mins, reach 8.30am still have empty slot, open housing area

So, tell me, which will you take?

Anyway, I took the location A which is just next door to my office. Parked my car and walk up to the building, before 8am. Great, still enough time to get some breakfast before start work. So I went to the O'Briens, and ordered their combo set.

Breakfast Combo Set B, RM9.80
Consists of Egg Mayonnaise and Chicken Crisp in French Loaf, 
and a cup of cappuccino

The combination of Egg Mayonnaise and Chicken Crisp does a perfect match
but frankly, if the portion of the ingredient could increase a bit more it will real great

The damages
Surprisingly, RM9.80 actually has all taxes included.

Early morning get the smells of a cup of fine coffee, it's just complete your day, isn't it?  Cheers ~ :)

2012 June Lunchbox Week 3

My new company is having a quite special benefits for its staff, which they provide breakfast and lunch.

Being worked here for nearly 2 months time, I would like to post on the lunch that I had everyday here, just to keep a memory of how sweet my company is. Sorry that I'm not able to capture photo of the breakfast they provided, mostly I don't get to eat them. Why? I'm not fast enough, that's why...

OK, back to the lunch. Some of you may say it looks really delicious and tempting. Well, let me tell you honestly, its all the photo effects. It actually doesn't taste as good as it may look like. Forgive me that I'm not going to describe the taste of the food in these posts. For good or bad, I will still have to eat, and it's not my business to decide what to eat/ not to eat. Well, probably I can still decide what to take among the choices we have, or go out of office to get my own lunch somewhere else.

Anyway, let's take a look for my June week 3 lunchboxes. 

- Grilled Fish
- Tomyam Chicken Soup

- Fried Chili Chicken
- Fried Fish Ball
- Pickled Vege

- Assam Fish
- Black Pepper Chicken
- Fried Toufu

- Rendang Chicken
- Sweet N Sour Fish
- Fried Long Bean
- Watermelon

- Fried Chicken Chop
- Mashed Potatoes
- Coleslaw
- Fried Rice

If you do keep your visit back in few weeks time, I bet you will find the same dishes came out every now and then...

New Boston Restaurant @ Klang

This restaurant has always in my top favorite list! Superb food, and the price is rather cheap! In Cantonese, they say 'PENG, LENG, JENG' !!

Love their food, and Hate to wait!! Well, although the conflicting feeling is really killing... But the Love always win the war. Hahaha... Well, sometimes it's not the matter of the duration you have to wait, but it's the satisfaction after!

Below is my must-have list, let's check it out ~

Steamed Lala Soup, RM22
Hot and spicy refreshing soup with lots of gingers and chilipadi
Big and super fresh lala that's going to satisfy your graving

Deep Fried Nestum Mantis Prawn, RM15
Crunchy salty nestum flakes, good to serve with rice

Pork Ribs King, RM15
Juicy and tender meats in dark and thick soya sauce makes you ask for another after one

Fried Hokkien Mee, RM7
The best i ever tried around KL area, despite the one Petaling Street I had years ago 
(not sure if its still nice as it used to be thought? )

Fried Hokkien Meehoon, RM7
I didn't really like fried hokkien meehoon, so I didn't try this dish.
However, from the comments who had it, it's also best ever around KL

Just do it

Just removed the snow effect in the blog.

Hm... It's a bit funny to see its snowing when its June ??

Haha.. I was so lazy to remove it, although it can be done by just click on 1 button "remove".

Don't know if you all aware of this. Sometimes it's just very simple to "delete" or "erase" or "remove" something which is disturbing, or rather illogical at all. Most of the time, it just require one click to do so. But somehow, may be because we just do not want to make that move.

Anyway, whatever should be delete or erase or remove, do not let anything stop you.


isenbin @ SS2

My very first post to blog about food! Hohoho ~

Was thinking to go the new Paradigm Mall for a walk in the afternoon. But when we reach to the LDP, OMG the traffic is horrible. So we quickly turn to SS2 instead. My oh my... Not going to stuck in the jam...

Took few round in SS2, then finally we stop at this Taiwan dessert shop. I'm sure most of you know about the very well known Snowflakes. This shop do serve the Taiwanese dessert like them, and here you can choose your ingredient. And well, they do have few meals to fill your stomach too. 

Their signature are the 3 cups chicken. But too bad, chicken is still in my untouch list (due to my cough, hm...), so I choose the Braised Beef Noodle Soup. According to the waiter, it's another best seller in the shop.

Oh ya, it's self-service here. So you will have to move your butt to the counter and place your order there. Then you will be given a number plate after payment, and wait for the food to deliver to your table.

#16, our lucky number of the day

Sweet Potato Douhua, RM5.50
(Douhua is smooth, though not as best as the one from the Ipoh Rocky Mountain, but better than many others)

Lemon Jade Jelly Ice, RM5.50
(Very generous portion, the sourness from the lemon makes it very refreshing,
a very good dip for a hot sun day)

Braised Beef Noodle Soup, RM9.90
(Generous portion of beef slices, 
the soup is rather oily, not really my choice, but the taste is good,
the noodle just nice, not too hard and not too soft)

Blogspot/Wordpress? Eng/Chi?

Now that I'm back, thinking how should I continue with this... Hm...

Blogspot? Wordpress?
Previously, my Chinese blog was moved to blogspot due to some problem to access wordpress in my former company.

Now that I've changed job, should I go back to wordpress? Or should I continue with blogspot? 

Frankly, after so many years writing in wordpress, I do have some unexplained feelings to it. Probably cause I've used to it, and most of my posts are there.

English? Chinese?
I start blogging with English. Then find myself wanted to write in Chinese instead, so I changed to Chinese. Then after some times, find myself have the mood to write in both, so-called to enhance my languages.

But then, I find it's really difficult to maintain 2 different blog, which are actually posting about same thing, only in different language. One thing I find the windows IME switching method is really irritating, that it actually conflicted with my work. (I'm a programmer, using Eclipse for coding. Ctrl+Space is the method in Eclipse for code-assist. And, too bad, I can't live without it !!)

So now, should I continue with both? or only English? or only Chinese?

**scratch head-ing**

Will really need to think about this...

I'm back... again ~

Hey there.. Well ya, I know it's been more than a year back since my last post. Hm..

Many has happened. The good, the bad, and the ugly..

However, the most important is, yes, I AM STILL ALIVE !

So, hopefully will be able to catch back some good old time when I was blogging before..

~ Cheers ~
