Random Thoughts

I must read more and eat less
I must read more and watch less TV
I must exercise more
I must drink more milk
I must learn to cook more dishes

On a positive note, i finally got those curtains down and gave them a good wash. That's 3 years of accumulated dust.

Weekend Makan

Kin Kin Restaurant at Cheras

Famous for its chilli pan mee.
The main restaurant is located at Chow Kit, KL area. We went to the son's restaurant at Cheras. Almost as good but somehow i think you need the shouting, yelling and fighting with the crowd for tables to make the whole eating experience more satisfying. However at Cheras, there are 2 shop lots so there's more space, plus there's air conditioning! The heat has been unbearable lately so Cheras seemed the logical place to go.

This is one of my makan buddies. The minute our food arrives, we both hover over it like vultures with cameras. And while we're clicking away, the food gets cold. sigh.

Look at that perfectly poached egg! Yummers. The moment you get it, break it quickly and let the yolk run and coat the noodles and minced meat.. oohhh absolutely heavenly!!

Add in the secret ingredient. Fried pounded dried chillies with chilli oil. Spoon all this good stuff into your bowl and mix somemore.

Each serving comes with a bowl of hot, clear soup with daun cekur manis.

oh, and lets not forget this bowl of delicious, springy pork balls. yep all 35 of them. haha no, i didn't gorge em all up. shared among 11 of us. mmm

HOoray! I've quite fulfilled my cravings after 2.5 weeks in Europe having cold sandwiches.

Intruders in my home!

the other day, hubs and i had a very nice lunch at our usual hainanese chicken rice shop.

we came back to expect to dump ourselves in front of our TV and just laze about. I opened the door and lo and behold. i just stood there speechless, looking at our kitchen counter and going uhhh uhhhh.....

then hubs being the hero starting yelling SHOO! SHOO! Boo! (wat a ruckus)

not 1 but TWO monkeys were in my kitcheeeeeennnn!!! BWAAAAAAAA

one was brown and the other white. good grief! the brown fellow was actually analysing my LOCK LOCK containers of dried fruits and nuts.. using his fingers and running thru the containers like he was actually studying which to take! arrggghh and I can remember his horrible tail all curled upwards arrggghhh on my kitchen counter!!!

they jumped off into the open window with a packet of my brown rice. Ed then started being the hero again and jumped there to continue his booing ruckus. At this point I was actually wondering who was the bigger monkey.

Then the WORSE thing was, he started getting ice cubes from the fridge and hurling them at the monkeys.


I think he got a pretty good kick out of it coz he went HAHA! and all excited and took more ice cubes to throw. The monkey had the cheek to just sit on the fence, eating his nice packet of brown rice and just stare at the bigger monkey throwing ice cubes.


so there, that's my latest update. gotta clean up my kitchen from all those 'hand' prints

can't leave my windows open anymore :(
