Ramly Burger Daging Special

Been staying up late at night to study for my finals..Well it’s not like I’ll sleep early when I’m not sitting for exams..LOL~!!

Anyway, staying up late at night is a bummer especially for people like me, who eats a lot..

Supper is almost a must for me, everyday! But fret not, there’s ample of stalls nearby my house, ranging from mamak to malay food, chinese food, and not to be missed, burger..

*Burger Daging Special*

I bought my usual late night burger from the stall 1 minute drive from my house..

There’s another one which is my favourite but it closes at 12-midnight, while this burger stall nearby 7-11 operates from 5pm-3am..

Burger Daging Special (Beef Special Burger), with the egg fried separately ala benjo, gives the eater more bite of the egg..

Some like the patty to be wrapped with the egg, some dont..I like both, it depends..What say you?

Ben Folds Five – Brick

This is quite an old song by Ben Folds Five, who they’ve officially disbanded in 2000 and reunited for a one-off concert in 2008..

The alternative rock trio-member group was formed in 1993 and gained most success over this song, “Brick” in 1997, from the album “Whatever and Ever Amen”..

Sad to be true, this beautiful is about Ben Folds past, about his high school girlfriend undergoing an abortion..

I’m amazed by Ben Folds’s songs and his solo album “Songs For Silverman” (2005) is very enjoyable..

Here’s the wonderful song “Brick”, with its live version at West 54th back in 1998 and lyrics..

Ben Folds Five – Brick

6 am day after Christmas
I throw some clothes on in the dark
The smell of cold
Car seat is freezing
The world is sleeping
I am numb

Up the stairs to her apartment
She is balled up on the couch
Her mom and dad went down to Charlotte
They’re not home to find us out
And we drive
Now that I have found someone
I’m feeling more alone
Than I ever have before

She’s a brick and I’m drowning slowly
Off the coast and I’m headed nowhere
She’s a brick and I’m drowning slowly

They call her name at 7:30
I pace around the parking lot
Then I walk down to buy her flowers
And sell some gifts that I got
Can’t you see
It’s not me you’re dying for
Now she’s feeling more alone
Than she ever has before

She’s a brick and I’m drowning slowly
Off the coast and I’m headed nowhere
She’s a brick and I’m drowning slowly

As weeks went by
It showed that she was not fine
They told me son, it’s time to tell the truth
She broke down, and I broke down
Cause I was tired of lying

Driving home to her apartment
For a moment we’re alone
Yeah she’s alone
I’m alone
Now I know it

She’s a brick and I’m drowning slowly
Off the coast and I’m headed nowhere
She’s a brick and I’m drowning slowly

Heineken Green Room @ Zouk KL

Sorry for the lack of update..It was due to my finals, which is happening right now..

Well, two weeks ago, 1st of August 2009, it was Heineken Green Room once again at Zouk KL..

I’ve missed Green Room 2008, though I’ve heard some complains here and there due to the on-going renovation at that time, I still think it’s one of the greatest events..

It was one of Heineken’s big event and yes it was, with Filthy Dukes (UK) in the house with their indie-styled synthesizing..Reminds me of The Killer’s first album Hot Fuss..

All pictures credit to David..

They played with keyboards, bass, synthesizers, very much fun..

Just as soon as they played their first song, I’m loving it already!

*The crowd in Zouk*

By looking at the crowd, moving their body to the groove, some even did some mild headbanging, I believed they enjoyed the band as much as me..

I’m not sure whether it’s because of Green Room or due to my absent at Zouk, the crowd was quite huge compared my last visit, which was Edison Chen’s visit plus Jess and Evelyn’s joint birthday party..

Well, sardine-packed crowd in Phuture is almost ascertain but I didn’t expect Zouk to be full..Zouk is because of Green Room, so it’s understandable..

The one I’m more amazed was BarSonic, usually only half-filled..I would say it’s the room where you can easily get a seat to rest from your tiring dances and pushes in Phuture..

*The crowd in BarSonic for LapSap*

But that night, there’s not even a single space to move around, let alone to find a seat!

Then at Velvet Underground, usually it’s crowded but I would not say it’s sardine-packed but that night, it’s damn freaking packed!

It’s like the whole of KL went to Zouk to avoid road blocks that were managed by the police force to crackdown the illegal gathering to protest ISA policy..

And from that huge crowd, I met lots of familiar faces and some faces whom I seldom see at Zouk..Very interesting indeed..

Even Ren came all the way to join us after the SuperBand’s concert at Bukit Jalil..

*Some of us*

It was definitely my last clubbing scene until I’m done with my finals, which is on 21st of August 2009..

And right after Green Room I was down with illness, which I myself suspected I was infected with H1N1, stim!

Til I’m done with my finals, see you guys in Zouk after that!

Nong Shim’s Korean Claypot Ram Yun

At a wholesaler market nearby my house sells some very cheap Korean noodles as compared to other supermarkets..

At conventional supermarkets/hypermarkets they are selling at RM12 above, the one nearby my house selling at less than RM10..

So I got one for myself, not knowing how it tastes like..

*Nong Shim’s Korean Clay Pot Ram Yun*

Being a Korean noob, I don’t think this is kimchi or udon or whatever..

But anyway, as usual, soup noodle goes very well with an egg..I must add in an egg into my soup instant noodles..

dsc02541-copy
*Boil it hot*

Put everything into the steel pot..Noodles, spices, boil for about 45-seconds..Then add in the egg..

Cook for about 1-minute and you are done..Check the texture of the noodles to own preference, soft or firm and bouncy..

*Korean Noodle*

Pour it into the bowl and your are done..For me, a nice perfect firm and bouncy noodles are for the win..

The taste, a bit sourish with slight mushroom-ish taste..The soup is a tad similar to the Sapporo Ramen I had at Ichiban Ramen..

Not everyone likes this tangy taste but I’m fine with it..What’s more you can ask for when you are drop dead hungry in the middle of the night? :P

*Chopstick licking good*

Korean? For the win I would say..

SLURPSSS~!!!

Light Trail In Blackout

While I was watching Naruto Shippuuden at 4am the other night, my house suddenly went kapoof, a sudden blackout..

I thought it must be something wrong with the fuse box..So I got out of the room, just to see nothing but dark and black around me..

I guess it must be the whole area of my housing area blackout..Being used to walking around in my house with the lights off, I grabbed my camera and walked towards the balcony..

It’s been some time since I shoot out of my house balcony..Since the whole was dark, so I thought of shooting with slow shutter..

dsc04619-copy

Three cars at a time..It’s very easy..

Just set your aperture to about F8-F10, and set shutter to at least as slow as 1 second..

If you have something steady to hold your camera, such as a tripod/monopod, that would be nice and better to set it at least 3 seconds..

dsc04625-copy
*Beam*

Did some mistakes with my camera settings..It’s been a practice to set high ISO when it’s dark but I’ve forgotten about putting it low when shooting light trail..

ISO 100 is sufficient enough when you are doing this kind of shot..

dsc04624-copy
*Red white district*

Light trail would be nice when there are constant vehicles moving around and your shutter is long enough to capture the lights, say 5 seconds..

dsc04626-copy

These are not my best shots though..Will do better next time..Try it out yourself..

At the moment I’m a bit addicted to do gif files..Am trying something with it..

Creative Spelling Bee Game

I still remember when I was in Primary school, I played a lot of games with my friends in the class during class intervals, recess times, and eveny before and after school hour..

Like most girls when they were young, they played batu seremban, masak-masak, or rope-jumping (lompat tali)..

As for me, studied in an all-boys’ school, a lot of games to be played such as chopping ball (bola cop), marbles (guli), tops (gasing), etc etc..

In class, we usually played UNO card game, Monopoly, bottle caps (penutup botol), and some others..

But those games need tools or a platform to be played on..

We creatively innovated a conventional game and we need to use our mind and indirectly make us listen to the radio or watch TV more..

We actually created a spelling bee game where we only use titles of songs, artistes, movies, actors and actresses, TV shows, and the likes, you get the drift..

The rule is, sit in a circle, take turns, and the title/name cannot be repeated..

Most importantly, the next player has to continue from what the previous player has let off with..

Let say, Third Eye Blind ends with D..So the next player has to start with D, say Dungeons and Dragons..Then the next player starts with S, you get the drift..

For no reason I reminisced the game when I was staring at the monitor few nights ago, then start to write on my Facebook status..

*Gaga glack sheep wtf*

Yuinyin started with Poker Face, because she thought it has to be something related with Lady Gaga..

Chris Tock then went gaga glack sheep wtf..That’s the most hilarious thing wtf..LOL..

After a while, they get the drift..Few others joined the fun randomly but Min Li, Satkuru, and Yuin Yin lasted longer than the others..

The hardest part was we took turns randomly and it’s subjected to your Internet connection speed..Isn’t that challenging?

Photobucket
*The full details*

All in all, I’ve managed to get about 70 comments a.k.a names/titles in that status alone, with only 4 players..You can check out that page HERE..

I never thought that there is people who would joined the game as I posted it out of the blue to see if there’s any response..

I wonder how it would be if there are say, no need much, 7 players..
