Busy lately, busy spending a lot of money and trying to find ways to make more haha…Renovation is expensive, new house is expensive, new mattress is expensive, new water filter, alarm, autogate…the list goes on.
And currently servicing my car too cos the turbine is leaking, plus need regular service and change ATF etc. And the driver side window won’t open, which sucks..makes me feel like I’m driving a Proton!
Oh well what to do, short term discomfort (and being super fucking broke) for long term comfort and pleasure!
Anyway a while ago I realised how much my tastes have changed during the past 6 years living in Malaysia, when I first came here for a holiday one of my friends took me to some back alley in Petaling Street for some ‘Hokkien Mee’ and I found it both looked and tasted disgusting.
Now if you ask me to live a year without Hokkien Mee I’ll probably stab you in the eye with a chopstick.
Another thing I’ve grown to love is half-boiled eggs, the closest we have in UK I guess is soft-boiled eggs which are boiled eggs where the white is hard and yolk is runny – traditionally eaten with ‘soldiers’ which are thin slices of buttered toast. Although my mom does like her omelets and scrambled eggs quite runny…I could personally not stand it. The site of a runny egg white made me want to vomit.
But well, now I love my half boiled eggs and kaya toast! The one above is from the new Papa Rich which opened very near my house along with a Dominoes. All we need now to be complete is a KFC!
In other news, there was some horrific rain when we were heading up to Genting and it ripped half the bottom of my car off..I think it was compounded with a nasty speed-bump I kena in Jinjang earlier that day. Lucky I had some strong string in the back and a pair of scissors in my glovebox so I could whip of a McGyver solution.
It was all worth it though for the AWESOME BBQ-Addicts feast we had to celebrate the birthday of Eyeris. Just look at this food! You can buy food from them or just hire them to do your whole BBQ – join the Facebook group NAO.
The location was perfect, great company and ridiculously good food. Full details on Kim’s blog here – Awesomesauce Michael’s awesomesauce BBQ birthday party
This weekend I took my car over to my workshop in Balakong for it’s service, then headed to one of the Airtrek gangs housewarming in Kota Kemuning. Ended up drinking rather too much, the bulk being contributed by 3 bottles of Otard which HAD to be finished before we left.
The Otard made me a retard. Let’s say it didn’t end well.
Anyway it’s Monday so back to work and back to reality (and sobriety)…so that’s about all for now! Managed to catch Ip Man 2 over the weekend, AWESOME – will write more about that soon.
