The Soya Shop

I am blogging from The Soya Shop!

After gym, pass by the shop and decided to ta pau for two of my favorite person - MUM and K!

Of course, the famous chocolate tong yuen finish liao. So have to wait about 15 min to cook the frozen ones. Hopefully it will be all good at the end. ANYWAY - This is a great place to have instant tong yuen. Price about $3.90 per bowl for the tong yuen isn't very expensive. You get four filled tong yuen with very smooth soya milk.

Tong Yuen flavors ranges from lotus, coconut, red bean and chocolate. You get the order their soya milk too as a drink, or their soya bun ... or even tau foo faa!

Till then ... see ya. My tong yuen is here! HAha

Close to you - The Carpenters

Why do birds
Suddenly appear?
Everytime you are near
Just like me
They long to be
Close to you

Why do stars
Fall down from the sky?
Everytime you walk by
Just like me
They long to be

Close to you

(*) on the day that you were born
The angels got together and decided
To create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moondust in your hair
Of gold and starlight in your eyes of blue

(**) that is why all the girls in town
Follow you all around
Just like me
They long to be

Close to you

Repeat (*)

Repeat (**)

Just like me
They long to be
Close to you

Sushi ZianMai

NO OTHER! Best place to dine in ... I must say, one of the best place to have japanese food with great affordable prices. Mind you, even though their price is average, their food is absolutely delicious. Imagine the food taste is better than Sakae Sushi, but the price is around Sushi King / Genki Sushi. One of the best combination !

And the credit goes to their menu selection, where the quality is always maintained and above average. The only give away is that sometimes the Unagi or Salmon Sashimi thickness varies. Depends on luck, but I have been quite lucky lately.

*courtesy of

People ask me, how often do you dine in ZianMai? My answer is about 3-4 times a month, usually more. Haha ... that's how much I love the place. Given credit for where it is due, the food is really nice and finger licking good.

Being a Japanese food whore I have journey enough for samples and I am very sure compared to others, they are fairly well off and deserve a visit. After all, I did spent then last few months going for most of the commercial-franchise "everyday-people" Japanese food and nothing beats this restaurant.

If that is not enough, Zianmai Sushi is actually own by the same boss who runs ZEN. YES! The fucking expensive and luxurious Japanese cuisine. I am quite sure the Chef pass some secrets on anyway.

Ok, enough of me selling. You can start eating ... their branches are at Sunway Pyramid, The Gardens and also One-Utama

In love with Bacharach???

I know I am! I bought this CD in Indonesia and have not stop listening to it ever since. One of the best easy listening Bosa Nova ever! Who ever that want to borrow this CD, please feel free to ask ... it has some of the best songs ever created ...

*Man, they should hire me as their brand ambassador

courtesty of *

Of course I would prefer those who can afford a CD to buy one. If you are a jazz lover, or even love song lover, or even a lullaby lover ... this CD is a MUST HAVE

Back after 30 Years

Three days since I am back from Indonesia. The trip was very fruitful. Although tiring at most time, the sense of achievement is there. Manage to secure many new clients, and most of them already started buying from us.

Good sign. Even our finance manager was quite happy with the sales for the past week

Market is there but of course, the potential for growth and factors would all soon be penalized due to the fact that our company is "manage" and "run" by monkeys. Well, sadly I have no further comment on it. As how Bettina might have put it ... I am numb, after being speared numerous times for something right I done.

Some of the best food can be found in JKT food court. Of course you wouldn't want to try their local street food! Unlike Thailand, JKT street food are much dirtier and scarier. Imagine eating at a hawker stall surrounded by hard labor indon workers. All desperate to jump onto you and take anything you have. Ok! I am overreacting, but you gotta see for your own self. Visit truly JKT!

Some of the food I down was Kodok (frogs) and Kelinchi (Rabbit!)

I know I am grouse ... but well, you only get to live life once!

The CDs are DAMN cheap. 55000RP !!!!! That sums up to less than RM25 for one CD. Well, I love em! And they have one of the most complete collection for Jazz and Audio Phils.

To sum it all up. It was nice to see JKT in my own eyes, travel a bit and the hospitality shown to me was great. Thanks AL for the great company and for introducing me to your wonderful family. May all of them are bless with great health and happiness. Till then, cheerios!

Its amazing. When you think the population in KL or Bangkok is a lot. Wait till you see Jakarta! Every single road, small, big, highway, smallway, lanes, single streets, anything - you will find cars and bikes kissing bumper to bumper. They are like everywhere! People EVERYWHERE!

and ... SERIOUSLY - JAM!

One advise, do not even think about traveling with their public transport. Thorn buses with ripped off paints, falling number plate and shattered glass. Yes, their public bus is like that! Blue van with no door. YES! I repear NO DOOR ... so if they turn violently at a corner, you better be hold on to anything that is glued to the vehicle.

The way they charge is also absurb. No ticketing system, you ride along the way and once you get down, you pay as per your arrive. Easy way to trick and cheat tourist.

No wonder you can't find any whites traveling around the city. I was lucky enough to have Angel to pre-warn me all these stuff and rented a personal transport, which is WAY CHEAPER and way more comfortable.

OK - I should stop listing the bad things. Now, the good thing is:

Their culture and language are still very rich and persistent. Everyone here speaks beautiful indon english and when it comes to english, they can hold it quite well too. Of course, I am judging them based on the few clients I met today and also the waiters who has been serving me.
The thing I like the most about INDON is how well they treat each other's salutation. They still refer their peers, community, people and practically anyone by "pak" or "bu" which means sir or madam. Regardless of your status and level of income - standard salutation. Very nice and EVERYONE uses it. Including those samseng, gila people, muka-tembok and indon-ahlian-ahbeng. YES, they have that here too.

Well ... I am so going to fall sick soon. My headache is getting worse, my throat healing bit but my flu stays the same. GOSH - I wish I had more rest. Signing off and till then ...

*culture shock*

Indonesia - JKT - Here I come!

Less than 24 hours, I will be departing to Indonesia.

Been hearing all the precautions, advises and also dos and don'ts for my travel to Jakarta this time around. No worries - I will becareful and take care of myself! Thank you for the wishes

I hope my bad fever-flu will go away soon. After a few dosages of paracetamol, vitamin C and flu-meds along with my 10 hours sleep earlier , I surely hope it will help make me better. At times, I feel better ... but at times, the echo and pain can be felt around my joints and ears. I hope I wouldn't have to go see a doctor when touch-down or anytime between my visit.

*touch wood touch wood

I hope this coming business trip will do some good. At least shine a lil more in my own portfolio and expectations before I leave. Yes, even though lady boss already knows about my intention in resigning and also spoken to me openly about it, I am still following the plan

Either than work, I think I will miss all my friends. Obviously, lilpixie has been missing in action. Since her departure to Hong Kong till now, and then mine to Indonesia and before I come back ... she will be leaving to Thailand with her boiboi and a bunchies, I will most likely not meet her for the longest time in my INM serving periods.

Anyway, just in case if she reads this - I miss you k! You take care k! and if ever anything happens to me (since JKT is not really famous for their security, peace and serenity) ... I leave my will and belongings for you and my Ta Jie to settle. Hahaha

I am so dead if I come back alive ...

hugs ... miss you'all

ps - dear mum, dad, sis and baby, do take care. God bless my trip and safety ... god bless everyone I love too. Keep all of them safe and all good.

Back to basic Step class

I finally joined Step classes. AWESOME. I was taken aback that I still remember the steps. Although I was quite "all over the place" and was reluctant to move more advance. Overall, the adrenaline and excitement was peak. I am very glad the class did me good

Anyway, I actually sold 3 images already since last my first upload! Although not much but it was quite motivating for me to continue snapping more images!

Ok ... here are the images that I sold. Beginners, so mercy in the comments ya!

Tiresome 4

4 days, 4 tired people.

Well, I am talking about our Thai agent visit from Bangkok. Mr Thavatchai has been nice enough to send his representatives, Nuch and Perng to come down for training, business development and discussion to improvise everything they have. Of course, being an instrumental myself, I have in many ways volunteer to entertain and host their visit. Company has also been some ways, kind enough to allow me to arrange all their itinerary and fully take accountability on their visit.

Of course, all good comes with an equal bad. Entertainment and food expenditures are marginally low and my dedication in developing greater heights is of course, questionable and not recognized.

I feel that Boss and Lady Boss still doubts me. I wish I have gotten somewhat fair training and thorough brief but being independent myself, I have did more than I should. I sometimes wonder how will I see my deeds and good doings at work in return.

To be honest, I have not been happy with work. I spoken to lilpixie a million times on it and she has begun to feel agitated over me highlighting this issue. So did K. K had a more drastic approach where he literally hurt my feelings. Although sad, I did nothing to react. I guess I would try and stop sharing about this issue.

I will keep this matter distant and concentrate more on something else. Perhaps in hope it will do some good.

One thing good about everything was that both Nuch and Perng was happy and content with their visit. It was a fruitful one. Hopefully sales will grow on their end. Perhaps then I have something nice and great up my portfolio.

PS - Thank you sifu for temaning me this few days! Appreciate it ... hope you will get well soon!

Happy Mother's day!

To my mum, the greatest woman in my life and home - Happy Mother's Day!

Sis and I cooked. We had roman salad, with so many types of organic vege - it is scary! Angela herself trial a pasta with red sauce. Sadly, I wanted to try this oil-based clam (lala) fried pasta but was unable to get fresh seafood for the day.

Anyway, was planning to take some pictures of the tulips I bought mum, along with the great family dinner at home. Unfortunately, K broke my camera. Yes, my DSLR Lens ... cracked the filter and the whole lens is still in the Nikon operation theater.

That aside, I think mum really enjoyed her dinner. No pressie mum cos your big day is coming. May is a month you can't really save cos it's mother's day and mother's big day - the once a year burfday!

Addiction for April08

I have an addict. Two to be exact ...

One is depression - due to many unrelated reasons which act like chain reactions.

The second one is this:

YES! Dark Chocolate M&M's ... which melts anywhere. Eat it while you can!

The opposite polar attraction

I feel happier at work. That is not something good ... cos it means that my other part of life is a sad case.

This particular month has been quite an unproductive. Either than slacking in my work (my actual day job), I didn't do anything much to improve my lifestyle and hobby. I remember a few days before Penang (early this month) I swore and made some promises to get some part time job, earn extra income and get some images up to online library for sale.

Till this very day, my part time income is still zero. No extra job/task out there and none of my images are edited / suitable for sale ... no need to mention uploads then. Empty promises - something I don't like

As I begin to give up, I put on a very sad Korean CD, listen to it and think ...

Life is so unfair. Some people are born with the gold spoon and chopstick. Some people are luckier then the rest and some are not. I feel the pressure, although my spoon and chopsticks are wood and I should be grateful to have one, I felt that they only serve their purpose and nothing more valuable than just items.

The stress falls in today. A few more days, would be end of the month. I have not save a single penny for this year. Every month, my savings are close to zero and the amount depreciates.

With all the frictions and tensions within my family, with all the insincerity spent hours with particular friends along with time and the ungodly-manipulation (simple terms - i felt used) weekend to come, I am trying my best to feel better ... think for the better ...

but life is still a bitter bug, and what is worse - my other half can never make me feel better. Credit given where it is due = he tries at least. Life is really a bitter bug ...

After such a long time (close to 6 months, plus) I finally sat down and had mahjong. It is definitely one of the longest break from that mind-challenging game. What to do, BigBanana and I can't seem to get Mother Queen, Amina and CoolJ to play. They don't want to learn - what to do?!

Since Sleeping Beauty, LPC, LGC and me have different working hours, it is close to impossible to gather and have a great mahjong session.

So it's always between K and his bunch of friends.

Of course, this time around - it was at the usual place. Sel's (who is about to give birth soon!) and Jen was of course there. I wasn't feeling well with all the air cond blowing directly at my "not so ong" spot ...

But of course, I wasn't to keen on meeting them up anyway. K pretended nothing ever happened to us. But of course, something did and our friends certainly remember it. Well, I shouldn't be so sensitive anyway ... I just left the situation as it is. I admit, I was quiet and reserve. I guess it's not such a bad thing either ...

Like the usual saying "less talking, less conflict"

That aside, Mah Jong was ok la ... lost a lil money, perhaps about RM3 and nothing biggie happened. Boring way to have spent Saturday night but what the heck ... at least it was not cash consuming.

I am so looking forward for next week's Mah Jooing with Sleeping Beauty and gang@!

After the whole RM thing

April 9th. Not some horror movie but just another ordinary work day.

Our company is going to launch a product and it seems that nothing was done in regards to branding, having a great strategic planning as well as development plan for it ... wasted child, just like any other I would say!

I am beginning to feel monotonous at work. Doing the same ol thing over and over again. I finally understand why certain people prefer to become bosses or switch job as soon as they get the opportunity to. Roaming freely without having to work with stupid people in life helps you to move on for bigger things. Ok, fine ... I hate my job and I am beginning to slack at work

Slack is normal. But for me ... its not ...

After closing a deal or two for the day, my passion dies. I am realizing the fact that I am truly, never going to be ... a sales man, sales person, people who sells stuff. I belong to the branding, marketing and "glamour" side of corporate industry.

So ... why am I staying?

Truly, there is still that little room for improvement and also the great friends I made there. Either than that two reasons - nothing is worth the take or consideration of developing a career there. I don't belong there ...

I truly believe so ...

Sigh ... I wonder when is my break-through going to come. Any takers or job vacancy in regards to my preference ... kindly drop me a note!

Resume ready ...

ps - even part time jobs are welcome! haha

Life's ...

... been busy and hectic. Ever since Valentine (which is about more than one month ago!), I have gotten closer to K. We have been spending some time together and better off said, we are on good terms.

Do not get confused. He is not the main reason why I am tied up most time. It is mostly likely because of a new bunch of friend I have met through Er Ge's party. A whole lotsa fun and laughter. Stress free too!

Just a quick note - I am planning to change jobs too. Realize that I want to earn more money and be doing something I like doing. Although its only about one year since I work, I have gotten bored of the routine and also company's modus operandi. Wish me luck in getting a new job!

Well, to sum up - I am just passing each day as it is. No drama, no frills, nothing much to talk about. I am heading to Penang soon. Perhaps snap some really good picture. Hopefully I can see the sunset!

Maroon 5 - Won't go home without you

Maroon 5 Lyrics

I asked her to stay but she wouldn't listen
She left before I had the chance to say
The words that would mend the things that were broken
But now it's far too late, she's gone away

Every night you cry yourself to sleep
Thinking: "Why does this happen to me?
Why does every moment have to be so hard?"
Hard to believe it
It's not over tonight
Just give me one more chance to make it right
I may not make it through the night
I won't go home without you

The taste of her breath, I'll never get over
The noises that she made kept me awake
The weight of things that remain unspoken
Built up so much it crushed us everyday

Every night you cry yourself to sleep
Thinking: "Why does this happen to me?
Why does every moment have to be so hard?"
Hard to believe it

[Won't Go Home Without You lyrics on]

It's not over tonight
Just give me one more chance to make it right
I may not make it through the night
I won't go home without you

It's not over tonight
Just give me one more chance to make it right
I may not make it through the night
I won't go home without you

Of all the things I felt but never really shown
Perhaps the worst is that I ever let you go
I should not ever let you go, oh oh oh

It's not over tonight
Just give me one more chance to make it right
I may not make it through the night
I won't go home without you

It's not over tonight
Just give me one more chance to make it right
I may not make it through the night
I won't go home without you
And I won't go home without you
And I won't go home without you
And I won't go home without you

Reflection of present

Have you ever wonder why certain things in the past haunts? When it happens, most of the time ... it becomes a fobia. People are reluctant to face the fear, pain or put it one side, to overcome it and literally to really put it behind...

many people with strong will and self can do it ... but sometimes it is not the things in the past that haunts you. It is the things in present and ignoring them, or causing further pain doesn't help ... does it?

People, objects, nostalgic moments, words, current events, mementos and friends reminds you of things ... things in present that were a shadow of the painful past. I remind myself everyday not to get affected. But how do you channel that disappointment and darkness when a person constant action reflect the past so vivid, so real and so certain>?

calls it facing fear, embracing your inner most want and the flush it all out. Ta Jie soul searching. Er Ge calls it facing the truth of your emotions. Sleeping Beauty calls it waste of time. I call it torture. I am human too ...

wonder, lopochai is right. To be able to put everything behind, with cruel intentions and selfish traits will help move on. I don't hope one day it will happen ... but if it does, I am so numb - I am ready to move on. I am so afraid that I will love myself so much so that this will happen. Fear of moving on with cruelty and selfishness.

I just want to spend time with my friends

Latest Update

Sleeping Beauty asked me "How did your washboard abs coming along?"

I replied "I wish"

I have been a lazy prick I tell you! Skipping gym and not attending to my gym regime! The result is of course, me getting thinner and losing my fit. Worse still, I am down with a major food poison illness after the company's D&D. Have been vomiting, gastric and diarrhea for almost 2 days in a row.

After the party, I fell sick with a fever. Had no choice but took a day off, ate healthy and watch Grey's Anatomy the whole afternoon. I must say that the TV Series is very good but I miss work in some ways.

2 trips, 10 days and 1 tired boy

Unbelieveable! I realize that I have not been blogging. I always find reasons to why things are constantly undone. For this instances, I have not been blogging mainly because I have been traveling and working a lot.

10 days back, my Melaka trip with the "random 5" aka-also known as the photo- whores was absolutely great. The trip there was less than rm150 for two days, inclusive of food, shopping, transport and accomodation. We literally shared room, car, cameras, food and of course, the bestest of memories! Gosh ... going out with them is like stress-free and most important, relaxing. We chat away like no body's business and the most important is that we GEL along perfectly.



and then ....

5 days later ... came Bangkok. It was my first trip there ... and I was with ErGe, TaGe, MiaoMiao, SanGe?, ErJieFoo, Wick, Sky, AJet and MeiJi (awesome girl with an attitude!) along with another bunch of friends ... I have to say that the four days spent with them will probably be one of the most fun and tired moment in my trips.

ErGe, the absolutely gorgeous diva can walk non-stop I tell you! Not to mentioned his partner in crime (our official fag-hag) MiaoMiao who went Bangkok with an empty baggage but came back with 5 bags! It was mainly fun because I was shopping away ... but tired because I went there half sick, with little sleep and bad stomach at times. What to do? The food there are quite dirty, spicy but delicious and cheap!

The trip became more meaningful - thanks to my ever lovely TaGe ... and a new found SanGe? who calls me Siao Di! A new bro? haha ... I am so happy to have them all with me ... all happening, stress free and awesome. We just had fun with no strings, frills or such. I can just be myself, prancing around and still loved by them. After so long, I felt belong ...


I am too lazy to write down my entire journey, feelings and experiences but lets just say it was probably one of the best trips I had in my life. I just wish and hope that TaGe will be able to join us more often in the coming near future. After all, I certainly do not want our brotherhood trips to end here.

(sorry no pics for bkk cos all can see face one!)
