星月神话 - 金莎

Nice nice nice nice nice song... nice until I wanna share it with all....


我的一生最美好的场景
就是遇见你
在人海茫茫中静静凝望着你
陌生又熟悉

尽管呼吸着同一天空的气息
却无法拥抱到你
如果转换了时空身份和姓名
但愿认得你眼睛

千年之后的你会在哪里
身边有怎样风景
我们的故事并不算美丽
却如此难以忘记

尽管呼吸着同一天空的气息
却无法拥抱到你
如果转换了时空身份和姓名
但愿认得你眼睛

千年之后的你会在哪里
身边有怎样风景
我们的故事并不算美丽
却如此难以忘记

如果当初勇敢的在一起
会不会不同结局
你会不会也有千言万语
埋在沉默的梦里

So what???

Murder suspect also can become the top guy, so what if a porn star becomes president of a bunch of to-be-oblivion-old-farts?

But then, good marketing strategy la, now everyone is talking about that bunch of old-farts...

Shop Naming Gone Wrong

Saw this at Queensbay Mall today...


Perhaps... people might go into the shop out of being amused by the shop's name...

But then... it depends on whether the people here can get the humor of it or not... after all, Penangites are predominantly Hokkien speaking people...

Happy Birthday to Me!

Yay~ It's my birthday today~ *jumps up and down in excitement*...

Anyway, went to celebrate with some friends at Canton-i, Queensbay just now...

I always thought Canton-i was just a fake, imitation of Dragon-i, today only I realized, they are operated by the same company... =.="

Anyway, in my opinion, they kept up with their sibling restaurant in 1 aspect: premium price, but they failed at another aspect: premium quality...

My drink: 七仙女 Seven Belle


Bird's Eye view:


Well, the tea came with the tea leaves tied in a ball, we can watch the tea leaves open up into a flower gradually...

Wow! So amazing!... But... but but but... there are many outlets selling flower tea that have this kind of spectacle... so actually is not that amazing la...

My food: 双拼云吞面(烧腩+鲜虾云吞) Double Combination Wanton Noodle (Roast Pork Belly+Fresh Prawn Wanton)


Seriously, for a wanton noodle that cost more than double of the coffee shop version, it is not quite half as good... and I have never given a shit on Penang's coffee shop wanton mee to be honest...

Anyway, it was me who chose this restaurant over a couple other suggestions... thought that it might be worth a try because I have never tried this restaurant before...

My birthday cake, from Starbucks: forgot the cake what name already


Ironically, this is the best food for the night :-P

Thanks, friends~ :-)

Cafe vP

Due to the economy downturn, I feel disillusioned being and employee that keeps kena freeze increment/bonus/etc, recently I embarked my very first business venture, the one and only Cafe vP...

It was a very small, shabby shop lot so the owner agreed to rent the place to me for a nominal $1 for a year. I spent a further $15000 to renovate it, bought some stoves and kitchen counters, put up new wall papers and re-tiled the floor...

Business was bad for the first month, but because I operate on the 平靓正 motto, my customer base grew. Within 3 months I grew from 3 stoves to 4, and 4 tables to 8.

The workload begin to become to much to handle alone...


I decided to find someone to jointly invest and work together in this shop. With the lure of increasing profits, I finally managed to persuade Cathrane to invest in my shop and 拍住上...

But, due to her lack of cooking ability, she can't really help in the kitchen, so she operates mainly as a waitress, serving dishes,


and cleaning up the tables...


Lately, our little cafe is becoming more and more famous due to good food and cute waitress, so the customers are getting more and more. And we even have a scheduled filming session with Jamie Oliver's Jamie's Great Malaysian Escape. It is supposed to take 2 days for preparation and filming, I wonder what that will do to our lost of revenue...

As there are more and more customers, the workload is getting more and more as well, and poor Cath has to work harder and harder...


At good times, there would be people waiting for seats. I think very soon, our little shop would not be able accommodate all our customers.


I think it is time for another round of expansion. But please do not tell Cath about this. It's her birthday soon, and I wanna surprise her.

With the profits made so far, and the current revenue daily, I think I would be able to take over the neighboring shop and expand the cafe. There would be more stoves, more counter and more tables, and also a mahjong foosball table so that waiting customers can have something to do while waiting..

With these additions, I think I would have to hire 2 or 3 more waitresses to share the workload with Cath. I'll also build a cashier counter so that she can sit down and collect money when she gets tired...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY YA CATH!!! :P
-------------------------------------------------------------

Updates: Re-layout the shop already, added more tables, and hired another waitress to help out, other things work-in-progress :P

It seems like business is rocketing over the roof...

Submarine able to dive after repairs

SUBANG (Feb 28, 2010): Malaysia's first submarine KD Tunku Abdul Rahman, which had a mechanical fault that prevented it from diving, has been repaired and is fully operational.

In announcing this today, Defence Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the submarine "is rectified and can dive. It is fully operational".

Asked if he had participated in the submarine’s test dive, Ahmad Zahid said he was advised against it but stressed he had faith in the Royal Malaysian Navy officers.

......

I hope those big shot buggers will be brave enough to join the test dive. After all, isn't it what they are best at? Making the headlines for these petty "achievements"?

Oh ya btw, the statements are kind of blur right? Last time said cannot dive but fully operational. Now can dive already and fully operational. Can it surface then? Since it cannot dive, nobody tried to see if it can surface or not, right?

If the buggers hop on the test dive, and the test found out cannot surface, then it would be money well spent, teach em' buggers a lesson...
