What better way to learn and donate to help the hungry at the same time.
By playing this game, I learn new words and I have donated 2,020 grains. Well it’s not alot but if we do it everyday spending a few minutes a day learning new words that will be beneficial to us and at the same time, donating grains of rice to feed the hungry. Now if we imagine the number of people all over the world learning and clicking away to donate each time we answer a question, it will run into billions of grains of rice. As to date, 52 billion grains of rice have been donated this way.
Yeah.. check it out.. below:

Some 8 years ago, this was my residence, The regency supercondo at Gurney drive. You know life is like that, when we were staying there, we seldom go out to eat at those famous hawker stalls over there and its just walking distance away. All those years staying over there, I think I use the swimming pool only once ! Again, life’s like that, when you don’t have it, you want it but when it’s there to for you to use for free.. we don’t bother.

The famous Gurney drive “Penang fried koay teow” where you have to queue for turn to collect your orders. Sometimes the queue is so long that they will give you a warning first that you have to wait for 1/2 hour and ask whether you can wait. If you can’t they will thank you and sorry… and say come back next time.

and here Song river cafe, one of my favourite cafe for breakfast those days when we have friends from out station, we will bring them to this cafe. Penang’s famous “Bak Kut teh” and the fried “lala”

Doesn’t it gives you an errie feeling that those flying saucers that the ancient people have said to have seen them flying seems more realistic now that NASA have designed and came up with the best design for space travel. It seems the best design looks like a flying saucer.. the ultimate design for space travels.

This saucer shape requirement is actually a heat shield to block the heat of re-entry into earth which is as high as 5000 degrees centrigrade.

Could it be so co-incidental that the flying saucer was imagined by someone or they really saw one.
Just curious….

Now let’s look at the designs that UFOs have been sighted and said to look like… why is it that all their imagination revolves around a saucer shape?
Yes.. heat shields inorder that those spaceships can enter into a planet’s atmosphere at high speed and prevent them from burning up during entry into our atmosphere. Does UFO spaceship really exist? mmmm having 2nd thoughts now.. hehe

Terubok Sarawak

Popularly known as Terubok Sarawak, this fish and its process in Kuching has given its name. Being an importer and exporter of fish, we know that Terubok Sarawak comes from Myanmar, we call it as hilsa fish and we export a lot of them to Kuching, Sarawak to be made into salted fish.

We studied into the market of this fish as to why is it so in demand in Kuching but we realise that most of the customers are from West Malaysia. I tried to market them in Kuala Lumpur but realize that the demand of the fish was not there. As we looked deeper in the market, we came to realise that most of the sales are at the airport and finally we found the answer. Terubok Sarawak is more like a tourist product, people from West Malaysia goes to East Malaysia and when they come back home, they will back some back since we cannot find them in West Malaysia so this species is a best buy at the airport. Airport being very strategic location since there is only one way back and every west malaysian have to pass thru’ so the airport is the best place to sell such products.

Now I have found another way to sell it…
By postage and we have decided why not try to market it this way. Terubok Sarawak cannot be sold in the market. One thing it cannot last and another thing is that it is not a meal where we take everyday but just occasionally.

Check it out here for more details how to get hold of this product.

The hardest thing to break

What is the hardest thing to break?

Diamonds are hard to find but not hard to break.

What is the hardest thing to break then?
The answer is: HABIT
If you break the H, you still have A BIT. If you break the A, you still have BIT. If you break the B, you still have IT!!!

Hey, after you break the T in IT, there is still the ‘I’. The person
at the end of the day, is the root of all the problems. Cute???

Now, I know why HABIT is so hard to break. Its destiny is in its name.

The word itself.
My lecturer taught me never, never, never to ASSUME . Because it makes an ‘ASS’ out of ‘U’ and ‘ME’….
You think it is a frog and I think it is a horse!

Moral: We have to respect each other’s opinion; you can see it clearly in the above picture. We just need to wait and listen actively to others’ point of view!

Have a nice day 🙂

Marriage out of Caste

Now this is for real, it’s looks like one of those tamil movies which I use to watch during my young days in the estates. Marriage out of caste is still a taboo in India even today. I was on my way to Mumbai for business and I just saw in the papers while on the plane – Mumbai Mirror
Click on the picture to read the full story about how the parents were paraded “naked” in the streets and beaten, because their son married another girl from another caste.

Water View Restaurant in Danok, South Thailand

I have traveled far and wide visiting a lot of remote areas around Asia sourcing for fish and I am going to tell you this.. it is most shameful of me, I never knew it existed..

It is my very 1st time in my entire life that I visited this place – Water View Restaurant which is only minutes from my office in Bukit Kayu Hitam, Kedah if not for the customs and immigration clearance at the border between Malaysia & Thailand.

It is one of the best Thai dinners I had ever had in years.
The Kaengsom fish with coconut shoots and long beans with the “killer bomb” spicy flavor, just looking at it you will sweat and one sip… mmmmm yummy you have to say “aarrrhhh” after sipping it or else you will cough hahahaha

And this is the dessert “ulam” just plain raw vegetables and a small bowl of “dynamite” sauce

and ooh the oysters, really fresh and delicious

and here is goose beaks but they call it duck beaks. Nope you are not suppose to eat the beaks but nibble like a mouse on the bits of skin remains on the beak… ya tasty..

a cool breeze and lovely scenery, gosh all these years, I didn’t know it existed.. wow I will frequent this place as my friends from outstation comes,, this is the best place to take them to dine.

Those are huts where you can dine and have a couple of beers

Good food, cool weather, nice scenery and you can just relax and enjoy.

The whole lake is so big and all the huts are scattered all round the lake side, well, they have a unqiue way to serve you…”speedboats” cowboy waiters!! and making orders?… walky talky !!
No wonder our orders are so fast…
Well, that is the success story of this place…great ideas.

From our huts we could see the kitchen across the other side of the lake and you can see further down there are more huts for customers to dine. The whole place could accommodate hundreds of customers at one time..
You see the small hut beside the kitchen is the serving area where the speed boats will come and collect the dishes and speed to the huts to serve.
And there will be waitress along batches of huts to collect and serve.

Look at the size of the lake and how scattered are the huts to serve, they have found the fastest way to serve. You know what, they even serve faster then the ordinary restaurants in town. hehe

and when night falls, you can see the lovely lake with colored reflection of wriggling lights everywhere… a lovely evening at Water View Restaurant , situated in the middle of nowhere in the jungles along the Malaysian Thai border.

A secret paradise found.. 🙂
