Hello everybody! It has been a while since I last wrote a post for my blogspot. Time really flies.

My very last post was written in July 2012! It has been more than 3 years! Oh my...

Haha... I've no idea what had happened in these 3 years. Perhaps, life being a GOOD lecturer cum researcher was really not easy...

Today, I'm a full-time Ph.D student in University of Malaya. My daily routine is to read journals, attend meetings with supervisors, attend reading groups/seminars, lepak at cafes, write papers etc. The ultimate goal of my Ph.D is to publish two Q1 journals! It's not easy but I will work hard to achieve these goals!

The best thing to be a full-time student is that I have the chance to mingle and mix around with the young students! Probably 10 years younger than me... Some were even my ex-students... And that makes me a 'YOUNG' student too... LOL To become young, I have thrown all my lao-shi's (lao shi = teacher) outfit and changed my wardrobe to all jeans and t-shirts.

Lately, I have just done writing a transaction paper. I really wish that it will be accepted and published soon. Then, one paper will be down!

I will be going to Chiba University, Japan for a student exchange in November. Gonna update my blog more often!

Stay tune!

I wish time stops here and I will be young and stress-free forever! *Peter Pan Syndrome*

Well, it's the era of online coupons nao! You are OUT if you have no ideas what are Milkadeal, Mydeals, Groupons, everyday.com, Dealmates etc.

Whenever and wherever I am, either in office, old friend gatherings, restaurants or inside the public transportation, the special deals on XXX sites (i.e., Milkadeal, JackCow, Mydeals, Dealmates, everyday.com, ilovediscounts, Groupons, etc. ) selling coupons are always the hot topic. The virus to purchase coupon is mushrooming and spreading like a pandemic disease lately in Malaysia.

:D I used my first coupon which was purchased from Mydeal in a restaurant called The Meat Experts (TME). Good things are to be shared. I never eat alone without my piggies and doggies buddies. As the Chinese saying, "独吃难肥。。。" I am always FAT since I love to share good food with my friends and family.

TME is located at ground floor of Hartamas Shopping Complex. It can be easily recognized by the fresh frozen red meats and sausages, various of colorful cheeses, ridiculously delicious and intoxicating wines and of course the porky dishes!

You will definitely like TME if you love pork! My favorite dish in TME is the roasted pork (Siu-Yuk). It's the best if you eat it with a fine wine.

Bellagio (pronounced as 'Pelacur') - its aroma and fruity taste will definitely intoxicates you

Macho macho waiter was pouring wine for us.

mr. smiley and nYnY were so happy eating and drinking

Look at his gluttonous face eating the roasted pork rib! KAWAII :D

What was he doing? He was reluctant to drink the plain water!
He just wants to drink beer or liquor! Notti boy!

Sweet sweet couple, Kah Yan and Jason. Look at their bright smile!

Cheers~~Bellacio rocks!

Next, let me introduce the pork specialties in TME!

Crispy Roasted Pork (Siu-Yuk..) - served with mixed vegetables

Pork Tenderloin

BBQ Ribs - the meat is so delicious and juicy!
It's highly recommended! You must check it out!


Roasted Knuckles (45 mins to be cooked)

Do check out their cheese platter - various types of cheese
It's a perfect combination when you eat it with bread and pork!

If you would like to buy the raw meat, there are awesome array of special recipe pork sausages , salamis and bacons too!

I was hamsup-ed by student!!!

Leave your Comment »
It was a cozy and chilly morning. It's indeed a perfect weather to continue sleeping.

However, I had to drag myself out from the bed as I had to attend a lab supervision that morning.

I was half-awake when I drove to campus that day. What to do? I was assigned duty to supervise the replacement lab (as always) since I'm the most junior in my university.

Kena bully tapi diam-diam lor... Earn money manyak ka-nan ah!

Bad thing was...60 students turned up instead of the usual 30 that morning. Meanwhile, I was informed that my partner would be late to the lab because she was overslept.

Makan sendiri saja lo.. No choice!

Fine.. I tried my best to debug students' circuit and evaluate them on the spot, all by myself...

Miss, miss, miss... I cannot do.. miss, my LED doesn't light on... miss, help me.. miss, I smell something burning..!!! miss, I want to go to toilet...

KNS! I was so frustrated hearing people calling me 'MISS' that day. Kepala dah pening, panggil saya miss miss miss lagi! PIFF!

I noticed that there was a bunch of mischievous monkeys sitting at the front part of the lab. The reason why I recognized them is because those 'G-O-O-D' students always face book-ing and looking at sexy photos during my programming classes in last semester. They got nothing good, they just knew how to beg tutor to debug their code or add more marks to their in-lab assignment.

Like what I did in last semester, I helped them to troubleshoot their circuit. After putting in and pulling off a few jumper wires, the LED were on.

You know what?

The BIG GHOST HEAD of the gang stood up and hold both my hands in front of everyone! While keep saying thanks, he hold my hands so tightly IN FRONT OF SO MANY STUDENTS!

Honestly speaking, I think I had stopped breathing for at least 3 seconds when he hold my cold hands. My eyes became big and wide opened.

My soul went round the world and returned to that lab. Well, his action really made me awake...

I was a bit soh soh dei after that. My lab partner was late for 2 hours. Again, she thanked me by hugging me in front of the students TWICE!

I experienced extreme culture-shock. I had no idea why these happened to me on that day. Perhaps, my peach blossom luck was freaking bad in that morning.

Aih.. the worst day in year 2011. I'm sincerely hoping that a handsome student who looks like Lee Min Ho instead of those naughty boys will thank me by hugging me next time.

At least, I don't feel bad being harassed.

Color-wolf miss huh? :D No, I'm not!

Leave your Comment »

Yay! Finally I've gotten my super duper cute hello kitty debit card!

It's adorable, isn't it?

Some of you might wonder how to apply the Hello Kitty debit card. It's fast and easy. If you are new user of Hong Leong bank, you just need to bring your I.C. and minimum deposit of RM200 to the hlb branch near your house and open an account. During this period, the staff will give you a hello kitty debit card instead of normal ATM card. You are entitled for 20 entries to win a Hello Kitty swift car if you deposit RM1000 to your new account + a Hello Kitty debit card.

If you are an existing hlb user, you just have to go to counter and upgrade your ATM card to hello kitty debit card. If you want to win the hello kitty swift, you should top up RM300 to your account (10 entries).

Hello Kitty debit card is MINE! <3

**The staff from HLB told me that HLB will launch a CNY version of hello kitty debit card during CNY next year too!

What are you waiting for? Get your Hong Leong Hello Kitty debit card nao!


mr. smiley and nyny 趴趴走 @Phuket

Leave your Comment »
Phuket is an island filled with excitement, night life, intoxication, pretty chics, beautiful 'toots' (lady-boys) and of course the mouth-watering Thai food.

It's the heaven for hamsup people too. :D (You know, I know lar)

Even a 3-stars boutique hotel like Seeka decorates their room interior with love. You will fall in love even you are traveling alone. *hmmm macam dah exaggerate*

In phuket, you will notice many 'farangs' like to travel to the island alone and get a pretty 'chic' (dunno lady or lady-boy) as companion during their vacation. It's common there!

Let's have a look on our hotel.

The Seeka Boutique Resort Hotel that we stayed in is decorated in a traditional Thai style. The interior gleams with lots of sculptures and reliefs, natural wood furnishings, creating a warm and welcoming boutique atmosphere.
This is, therefore, the perfect hotel for tourists who are searching for a quieter location outside the center of Patong yet within easy reach of the beach (walking or riding motorbike) and the many restaurants, shops, markets and exciting nightlife.

The swimming pool @Seeka Hotel

Love love love!

The Balinese lookalike style bath room. All necessities is provided. Hair dryer is provided upon request.

The shower area is clean too. nY likes the design on the wall.
The bath room smells weird when we first entered the room. However, the odour is gone after we used it for several times.

We had a simple breakfast at the hotel restaurant before our day tour to Phuket.

The first station is Karon View Point (it is previously known as Kata View Point) . Phuket has many viewpoints, some without names, some with, and the best known and most popular is the"Karon Viewpoint". You will see 3 beaches from there and the scenery is indeed superb.

Can you spot the three beaches? From top: Kata Noi, Kata and Karon?

We stopped by a while to take some photos and proceeded to the next station, Wat Chalang.

we cam-whored while other people were busy prayin' in the temple :P

After visiting all tourist spots, the tour guide brought us to the shopping outlets.

We were brought to cashew nuts factory to see how people process the cashew nut from the cashew fruits. I just knew there is only a nut from each cashew fruit. Nowadays, people make juice from the cashew fruits too. How creative!

I did not understand why the tour driver like to bring tourists to those germs gems factory, t-shirt factory and etc... nyny's wallet is thin and slim after visiting all the outlets.. keke

The most anticipated activity in a day is MAKAN. It's already late when we reached the hotel. Without hesitating, mr. smiley and I rushed to the nearest local stall to cure our stomach. We went to a stall called Hai Food near Hotel Baumanburi.

papaya milk shake

fried asparagus with mixed vegetables

pad thai

Then, we strolled around Junceylon and Bangla Road while waiting the driver-san to pick us to the lady-boys and HARIMAUS' show.

spot the funny looking mr. smiley @Junceylon
Jalan sampai kaki almost patah... :D

VIP ticket for Simon cabaret show.. it costs us THB800 each

he is my favorite performer.. he's pretty, isn't he?
look carefully, he even did surgery on his important organ..

another pretty lady-boy.. yoo she's sexy!

We were brought to the most interesting performance, the TIGERS' SHOW here.
Tengok! Semua hamsup mah lat lous!
Both mr. smiley and I did not enjoy the show. We were frightened most of the time that the TIGERS would drag us to the stage... or shot us with FROG using their vagina.. OUEK
On the other hand, the old couple which was with us in the tour enjoyed the show so much that they were reluctant to leave the 'hell'...

After all the shows, we strolled around Bangla road to check out the night life.
Envy! Sexy chics and ladyboys are everywhere standing beside the dancing pole! :D

Undeniable.. the lady boys are more beautiful than most of the real ladies...

Besides pubs and discos, there are a lot of stalls selling souvenirs, slippers, bags and clothes too.. Tourists must know how to bargain with them.
Don't worry. The Thais in Phuket can speak good and proper English.

a wide variety of colorful slippers @Bangla Road...

Gluton jai mr. smiley and nyny ended our day with some super duper delicious local dessert, the BANANA pancakes!

Nyum nyum nyum! Nutella Banana pancake! Saliva drippin'

and of course, the PORKY SAMURAI BURGER! :D~

I know it's fattenin' but I could not help it.
