Christmas Dinner @ Clarence's Home Grill

Saying goodbye to "Ho!!! Ho!!! Ho!!!" and let's welcome "Boxing Day". You guys might think that I'm crazy staying awake in such hour. *Look at the clock* It's 2:38a.m. in the morning of Boxing Day.

Greetings:

"Happy Boxing Day"

to the world

Well, I'm just got back from having my Christmas dinner with my friends at Clarence's Home Grill, Lintas. (Told you guys earlier on) and a relaxing moment chilled out at Starbucks, Warisan Square for a cup of Green Tea Frappuccino.

Clarence's Home Grill

Well, actually I'm still intoxicating in my own world enjoying delicious "Hawaiian Cheese Baked Chicken" at Clarence's Home Grill, sipping my favorite Starbucks' beverage - ice cool Green Tea Frappuccino and not forgetting this nice looking tall young Chinese guy (6 feet if I'm not mistaken) that I bumped at Starbucks' counter while I was waiting for my drinks and pay my bill. He did really caught my attention towards him, because his look like one of those ABC (American Born Chinese) *BLUSH* Heh... Heh...

Altogether, there were 9 of us dined at Clarence's Home Grill for the night. Calvin and Winx couldn't joined us for the night cos Winx was sick and Calvin had to play the important role by being a caring man who will taking care of his girlfriend when she is not feeling well. (Poor dear little sister, get well soon and I'm sure we will catch up again during New Year eve.)

We spent our time in Clarence's Home Grill like almost 2 hours, before the gang split into 2. David and Imelda left earlier for a movie at Growball Cinemax, Soon Fatt & Jing Fen gone home while the rest headed to Starbucks, Warisan Square meeting another 2 of our friends there (Jacky and Orman) for another round. So this was how we spent our Christmas this year. I just can't wait for another gathering during new year eve. Counting down 5 more days to go, Korean Cuisines here we come!!!!

Before I wrap up my post, here are some of the photos we took while we dined at Clarence's Home Grill and Starbucks. Hope you guys enjoy it. Do hop in again next year.

Happy New Year 2011

in advance

Two Christmas Gifts From Santa Boo

"You better watch out,

You better not cry,

Better not pout,

I'm telling you why,

Santa Claus is coming to town"

Ho!!! Ho!!! Ho!!! Merry Christmas to all my readers who came from all walks of life around the world. How's everyone countdown celebration on Christmas Eve??? Well, I had been "nesting" at home last night due to the bad weather and I'd got no date as well. *Sob**Sob*......

But still, not too upset about that. Since I had been busy with my preparation for tonight's highlight - "Steak Feast" with my friends. It's been a tradition for me and my friends to gather around having special dinner during Christmas & New Year. Over the past few years, we had been having steamboat, Chinese Food...... So this year, we tend to try something different - Western Food. (Suggested by me) Thanks to my friend - Ah Jack for the venue recommendation. (Clarence's Home Grill) Can't wait to try their steak tonight.

Two days ago before Christmas, I had started up my last part of clearing my annual leaves for the year. So, I had been started up my first part of mission of digging up a "hole" in my wallet . That's buying myself a Christmas's gift and doing some shopping for my closet. And there you go. this is what I got for myself this Christmas:

A "Carlo Rino" Handbag

Love the pattern and size so much. Please don't ask me the price cos I did it once a while just to reward myself for never shopping till bleeding for all this while. So, that's the first gift for myself.

Next, in the morning (The day before Christmas) I went to chop my hair down. (Honestly, I had a heavy heart to chop my hair down, but what to do I had been suffering from hair-loss that forced me to have my haircut) Well, at least this time the hair stylist didn't let me down and i pretty satisfied with my haircut now. After done with my haircut, I did a little shopping spree and had my lunch with dad and mom at Old Town Cafe, Citymall before headed to collect my second Christmas's gift from one of my forum friend: Nex.

It's a CD by Jaeson Ma

Finally, it's here. Nex helped me with the online shopping a month ago. (Since I'm kinda noob with this online shopping) But then, I won't bring up this online shopping as a habit. I don't want to be a shopaholic in future. So, self-control is important!!!! Anyway, I'm going to start paying my first installment of getting a second hand DSLR (Canon 400D) from my "Sifu of Photography" - Chucky. So there you go, please pray for me as I'm starting up my journey of learning how to master "The Art of Photography".

That's all for now, will blog again soon about how my Christmas celebration with friends later after tonight. Stay tune.....

Merry Christmas with L.O.V.E from BOO ^~^

Two Men And A Cake

Drool !!! Drool !!! Drooling from last night's green tea cake with red beans in it. It's superb delicious.

There you go:

Uncle Biscuit's Green Tea Cake with red bean in it.



Oh wait, have I forgotten something??? Who's the birthday(MEN)??? Almost forgot to introduce to you all our birthday(MEN). Note: The reason why I put "MEN" in a bracket, It's because we got two "heroes" whose birthday date were close (Jacky on the 6th and Andrew on the 8th) and "someone" claimed that they were no longer called themselves a "BOY" anymore. (You know who you are. *EVIL SMILE*)

Andrew Wong the "Smiling Prince“ (yellow shirt) & Jacky Loo the "Professional Photog" (blue shirt)

This so-called "Yumcha+Birthday+Gathering" event (3 in 1) was organised by Winx and collaborated by me as the venue-proponent (But, we forced to switch venue from Jabez, Damai to Kopi Ping, Damai in the last minute, since the place I proposed early on was "Closed” last night.)


Thanks to everyone who made an effort come to the gathering. (Ck,Calvin,Shong Loo and Soon Fatt) and for those who can't made it (David, Imelda, Koch and Tina) We will catch up again during Christmas Eve.


By the way, someone from the gang just commented me kinda cool and seldom smile. Hmm... am I??? Oh well, I'm actually not cool. It just I can't smile out. Can anybody teach me how to smile or be happy???

Last but not least, I would like to wish my friends once again here: Andrew and Jacky

Happy Birthday, dude!!!!

What Drool You Most ???

Ok, I know I'm supposed to blog about this yesterday. But then, once again retarded line had drive me crazy. Was woke up this morning, I thought I could blog during my working hours, but then once again another disappointment hit me up (Black Out!!!!) Wadda ??? But good for me though, at least I can runaway from this little "secret Scary Room" for a while, and absorbed some fresh air and sunlight before I turned myself into vampire. Heh... Heh... (But, hey who cares ??? Since today is my last day "nesting" here. I'm gonna walk out proudly leaving this room tomorrow right after passing the "Baton" back to my colleague. *SCREAM* "Rejoice!!! Rejoice!!!".)

Throughout these entire 9 days of being locked up in this new environment (Secret Scary Room), I had actually learned a lot, explored a lot, experienced a lot, but most of all I had enough of "Quite Time" for my own.

"LEARNED" - Yeah, learned to fix my blog. Ok, I did messed up my blog's layout once again with this stupid Youtube clips. Since I'm alone and far far away from my "sifu" this week. That's mean I need to "Stand On My Own Feet" and try to fix it on my own.I was like spending half of my day trying to understand those HTML code by referring back the one "sifu" done previously. Guess what??? I made a success. (The satisfaction is like "WOW" for me, although you might said "Cheh!!! What's the big deal???")

"QUITE TIME" - So, It's not easy to have a "Quite Time" unless you are living by your own in this world. Sometimes I like to have "Quite Time", where I don't need to meet anybody,talk to anybody, listen to anybody or bother how peoples think of me. Well, I admit it I'm just lack of confident, and been full of jealousy in front of public lately. That's why don't get me weird, when you found me like to be alone and not mix and mingle around. But I had enough "Quite Time" these few days reading my bible which I had abandoned long ago because I don't want to be cranky since I'm not those attractive person who had a lot of friends surround me. I'm not saying I'm holy but, trust me...... I felt much better as I started to read through the pages for the past 9 days. Glad that It's become my "non-talking" friend now.

"EXPERIENCED" - Ok, for those who know me in real life, you guys should known that I'm a "book keeper" (Librarian) for 6 years now. So basically, I only dealing with books most of the time. Unlike my previous position - Accounts Clerk, which required me to deal with some admin jobs, numbers, working papers, and fussy clients which kinda stressed me up most time. Unfortunately, I faced it all back within this week. Firstly, non-stop phone calls - some parents called up to bla.... bla.... bla.... But I did come across with this man with a sexy voice called up about few times within a week looking a vacant badminton court to rent, whom I had a deep impression toward him. His voice not just melted me up, but he will included my name in his conversation each time. After few call up, we are like long time friend, he even invited me join him for a session of game, but I end up rejected him and hung up. Lolz..... What an unexpected invitation.

Secondly, a sudden situation struck me. Honestly, I hate picking peoples' half done job or even try to amend peoples' worksheets. Especially, something that has to be related with accounts. But I forced to do so, when I'd been assigned by the vice principal to help this canteen owner to re-calculate his monthly rental fee which my colleague done a slightly mistakes on the calculation. But thank God, he supervised me at the same time and we did the calculation together, and I managed to hand over the amended accounts to the canteen owner and he pretty satisfied with the figure. Phew!!!!

"EXPLORED" - Well, since I'm just helping up my colleague in her office, while she is away for a holiday. Nothing much I can do. so, I get the chance to surf net to kill most of my time.Like what I'm doing now blogging, reading some blogs, facebook-ing, forum-ing, plurk-ing and twitter-ing. I'm quite active in twitter-ing nowadays. Made quite a numbers of net-friends either. Get to know peoples, what's new,what's going on in the other side of the globe. If you have been following my blog, I bet you all should be familiar with the name - Jaeson Ma (Please refer previous blog post entry in case you all don't know him) I'm his blog regular reader now which famous for his "365 Days Of Love" that gave me lots of impacts in life. And through Jaeson Ma, I get to know someone from Singapore either, we had quite interesting conversation. Well, one of the question been raised up is - "What drools you most now???"

Hmmm..... I quite myself down for a while. Then, I answered:

A cup of Starbucks's Green Tea Frappuccino

A copy of Jason Ma's album "Glory"

and last but not least......

Skittles - Rainbow Candy


Ghee... I still haven't try it yet. Can anyone tell me where I can get it ???

So now tell me "What drools you most???" :D

Love And Glory

Hello!!! Hello!!! Wazzup ??? I feel very sorry to all my honorable readers out there, for missing in action once again and this time a bit longer as it's like a month to be exact.

Why do I missing in action for such a long period?? Well, let me explain it here:

1. For those who really know me in person, I'm sure you got the answer. But for those who did not know me in real life.Well, I got a bad habit here : "Boo won't do anything if the mood is not there. Boo will only move on once the "fire" within is burning. (So, never pushing me, cos that will only wasting all your energy with a zero returned result.)


2. Another reason is blame it to the slowpoke internet line in my area lately. This retarded internet line made my desire throughout surfing drop down to zero according the scale.


Ok, that's it with all my explanations... Actually I want to share with you all stuff that I had discovered in the past few days. 2 days ago, I was like having a strong desire to re-tweet again in Twitter. Then, I met this fellow whose name is Jaeson Ma (An American Christian actor, musician, writer, and minister who is best known for his work as a pastor and Christian entertainer.) Who had released his first album "Love" and now is promoting his second album "Glory" release concert in Los Angeles.

I start to youtube it, and I found both the video clips. And I already fell in love with them when I listened to them for the first time. Thus, I try to connect with him regarding how am I supposed to get myself a copy of "Glory" album via Twitter. And guess what?? I got replied from him. Since the album will only released on 7 Dec 2010. So it's a pre-order session and I'd been told that they wont selling the album in Malaysia. So which means I can't find the album elsewhere racks. The only way is to get it here. Holy crap, which means I have to do an online shopping which I had never done before. And I donno how either. But thank God, a trusted forum friend of mine helped me out by purchasing the album on behalf of me. Thank you ..... Nex :D (Promised to pay you back as soon as your bank statement and the album landed safely in KK.)

Well, as I mentioned I never done an online shopping in my life so far.... And moreover purchased the most expensive album amongst my collections of albums in my life. But for me, it worth that much.

If you wanna know more about Jaeson Ma or his album or the concert's info, can always feel free to log in :Jaeson Ma's Blog or Jaeson Ma's Facebook or even follow him in Jaeson Ma's Twitter.

Before I signing off, I will be leaving you all with these awesome clips that I had been listened all over again and again these 2 days.

"Love" from his first album


and "Glory" from his second album (Which is about to come out somewhere this 7 December. Oh man!!! I just can't wait for my copy of his album arrived.)

Fun Taiwan : Yehliu Geological Park (野柳地质公园)

It's been 13 days since the last update...... A short update of myself before proceeding to my adventure of "Fun Taiwan".

Well, finally Boo was out of the "cage" on 10 September to a potluck dinner which had been invited by a forum's friend - Yack Yack a.k.a Jack Law. It was a fun night, although it had been raining cats and dogs and unexpected situation like I forgot to bring the house's keys which made my dad waited me until 1A.M. in the next day. (Gomenasai, dad!!!) I was totally "TARPED" by the green tea drinks and delicious food. (3 cups in just 1 night... Crazy!!!) Met more new friends in person from the forum such as : Nex, Town, Jean, Nicholas. And of course had a great laughters with the movie we watched - Spaceballs.



Ahahahha... That's made my day.

Followed by 11 September, attended my colleague - Bevina Au and her hubby Thomas's big day events (Morning: wedding reception at Sacred Heart Cathedral & followed by a wedding dinner at May Flower Restaurant in the evening) It was my first time attended a Roman Catholic's wedding reception. I was a bit touched when they played this particular of song "The Wedding" by Julie Rogers. Well, wondering when I get the chance??? Guess, never happen to me in this life. Hur.... Hur.... Hur....



To: Thomas & Bevina,

Wishing both of you have a great marriage life, and it's fate which drove both of you together, let's treasured each other and God's work. Cos not everyone given the privilege like both of you had.

Ooops, sorry!!!! Am I made my intro too long???? Better get back to my story of Taiwan. The first travel spot on our second day in Taiwan was "Yehliu Geological Park (野柳地质公园)".

We were staying in Hotel Exterior (快捷假日大饭店)for our first night upon arrival.

A comfy bed but I couldn't sleep well either in my entire Taiwan's trip.


Almost getting up 3A.M. in the morning every morning.

One weird phenomena you will get to see in Taiwan is that - Sun rises in Taiwan faster than sun rises in Malaysia.

These photos proved that what I'm saying: (Took it 5A.M. in the morning inside my hotel's room)



So after finished our breakfast in the lobby, we headed to Yehliu Geological Park (野柳地质公园).

Before I leave you with eye-catching photos, here are some details of the Geological Park:

Yehliu is a cape of about 1,700 meters long formed by Datun Mountain reaching into the sea. When overlooked from above, the place is like a giant turtle submerging into the sea. Thus, it is also called "Yehliu Turtle". Because the rock layer of seashore contains sandstone of limestone texture and it is subject to sea erosion, weathering and earth movements, there is particular scenery consisting of sea trenches/holes, candle shaped rocks, and pot shaped rocks. The place is divided into three sections. The first section has rocks like Queen's Head, Fairy's Shoe and Candle. The second section has rocks like Bean Curd, Dragon Head. The third section has sea-eroded caves, seal shaped rock, etc. The place is suitable for geological study and field research. In addition, there is a statue of Lin Tien Jane in commemoration of the person's bravery of scarifying own live for saving others. The monument describes in details the touching story. There is a marine world in Yeliu. The marine world is the first marine center in the country for exhibition of ocean evolution. It has the best sightseeing tunnel under sea, showing about 200 rare fish species and marine lives. The area of marine live specimen demonstrates many specimens of precious marine mammals and fish. It is very educational. There are excellent shows of whales, dolphins and seals, such as diving, ballet on water and other talent shows. There is a stadium with 3,500 seats. On holidays, the place attracts many visitors for the show. When you visit Yeliu, don't forget to visit sea world and feel the marine wanders.

The Queen's Head


Fairy's Sandal


Mushroom Rock


Ginger Rock


Some other Formation Rocks as well....



Pedestrian Bridge


Last but not least.......

A memorial for a man who lost his life while saving some kids who fell in the water


That's all for now.... Coming up next, I will bring you all to Jiu Fen (九份) another old streets where you can find all sorts of tit-bits and I did find my "LOVE" here. Wanna know what izzit??? Come join me in my next blog post. Till then, I'm signing off. Yeehaa!!!!!

Fun Taiwan : Birthday Bash For The June's Babies

There you go..... Here I am once again, Boo - The Story Teller. Heh... Heh!!! Life is getting boring each and every single day for me now. Wake up in the morning, breakfast with the parents, heading to workplace, lunch at home, back into cozy office, home again with some house chores, throwing myself in front of the TV sets or grabbing some novels until "They" (I mean TV programs and the novel "waking" me up 2a.m in the morning.) So please tell me what the hell of world I'm in now???

Oh!!! Whatever ..... Thank you for lending your eyes for the above !@##$%^. I'm just trying to let go some "bad gases" after all you can ignore that part. Ok, back to story, as I promised yesterday today my mission is to make all of you drool all the way down.

After visited the last spot of the day in Taiwan, It's time to ease our hungriness. We had our first dinner at Taipei which was the "Mongolian BBQ" that we never had before back to Malaysia.


What is "Mongolian BBQ" ???

According Google,

Although Mongolian barbecue first appeared in Taiwan in the middle to late 20th century, the stir-frying of meats on a large, open surface is supposed to evoke Mongolian foods and Mongolian traditions. Or the preparation derives from Japanese-style teppanyaki which was popular in Taiwan at the time. The very first Mongolian Barbecue restaurant (Gengis Khan Mongolian BBQ) was opened in 1976, and was located in downtown Taipei, Taiwan.
American restaurants such as HuHot Mongolian Grill and BD's Mongolian Barbeque claim that soldiers of the Mongol Empire gathered large quantities of meats, prepared them with their swords and cooked them on their overturned shields over a large fire. A German restaurant chain with the same concept claims that the Mongolian soldiers cooked their meals on a heated stone.

Typically, diners choose various ingredients from a buffet of thinly sliced raw meats (beef, pork, lamb, turkey, chicken, shrimp) and vegetables (cabbage, tofu, sliced onion, cilantro, broccoli, and mushrooms) and assemble them in a large bowl or on a plate. These ingredients are given to the griddle operator who adds the diner's choice of sauce and transfers them to one section of the hot griddle. Oil and sometimes water may be added to ease cooking, and the ingredients are stirred occasionally.

The ample size of the Mongolian barbecue griddle allows for several diners' food to be cooked simultaneously on different parts of the griddle. In many restaurants (primarily buffets) one dish will be cooked at a time, the operator walking around the outside of the grill once or twice moving the food while walking. When cooking is complete, the finished dish is scooped into a bowl and handed to the diner. Many Mongolian barbecue restaurants are-"all-you-can-eat."

I even made myself my favorite ABC too.


Food stories had been never end, Our mindful Malaysian tour guide (Veronica) and the Taiwanese tour guide (Tommy) had a little surprise for my daddy (Since 8th June - our first day in Taiwan was exactly the date my daddy came to this world)


They had prepared a fruity birthday cake which I thought it more like a fruity pie for me.



And of course together we were celebrating for all the June babies as well. (And I'm one of the baby either :D)


That was how I spent my 28th birthday in oversea with huge bunch of strangers that I'm about to make friend with them. Once again a big thank you to Veronica and Tommy for making us such a memorable experience in my life so far. I will keep this memory buried in my heart forever.
