Jumping Jack!!

I was studying up on action photography and was introduced to the different shooting modes of my camera.

Then, one morning, Rusty provided the best opportunity for me to try this out. Turning on the AI SERVO mode, I pointed at him and just shot...

Bitter Gourd Speciality @ Restoran Fu Kua, Taman Megah

If you're mad about bitter gourd, this is a good restaurant to go to. EV recommended this restaurant as she had gone to it with her parents previously when they visited from Kuching.

We ordered four dishes for the three of us.

I couldn't remember if it was the Marmite Pork Ribs or the Sweet & Sour Pork Chop was good. So, we ordered the Sweet & Sour Pork Chops ("Pai Kuat Wong"). It was served differently as the pork chop was cut into small pieces. The pieces of pork was soft and easy to chew - good for older folks.


My parents love bitter gourd. I, on the other hand, could never tolerate it being cooked as the bitterness just seeped into everything that it is cooked with. So, they had to order a separate vegetable dish - stir fried kai lan.


Anyway, I felt a bit adventurous and tried the rest of the dishes my parents ordered.

The stir fried bitter gourd with salted egg tasted good but according to my mom, it was not as good as the one cooked at this other restaurant in Subang Jaya (which is no longer open).


The bitter gourd soup is highly recommended and seems to be the "specialty" dish of the restaurant. The soup was absolutely bitter but funnily though, the bitter gourd pieces did not have any bitterness at all. I wondered if my tongue had lost all its ability to taste other flavours. LOL!!

The soup is a boiled soup with minced pork, pork stomach and pigs blood pieces. Sounds disgusting but the soup tastes great!


The entire meal was around RM53 which included drinks and rice. Can be slightly expensive but if you're crazy about bitter gourd, this is the place to go!

Belated B'day Celebrations @ My Elephant, Section 17

Happy 20-10-2010!!!!

This post is late by 2 months... My friends and I had a belated birthday celebration for some of us who had our b'days in June and July.

A friend recommended a Thai restaurant, "My Elephant" which is situated in Section 17, PJ for lunch. She is pretty much a regular there and so, was able to navigate us around the menu of yummy Thai food.

Fizzy Sour Lime

We decided to order a number of signature dishes such as a Thai Papaya Salad, TomYam and Red Curry.


The papaya salad was spicy, sour and salty at the same time. The saltiness comes from the fish sauce which complemented the raw papaya slices in the salad.


We definitely enjoyed the mixed platter which is one of the popular appetizers served at the restaurant. Crunchy and not oily at all!


We ordered two types of Tom Yam - one spicy and non-spicy. The prawns were scrumptious and soup was tasty.


The Thai Roast Duck Red Curry was fantastic! The dish had a good balance between the "lemak" (coming from the coconut milk) and spicy chilli. The pineapples were sweet and was not acidic after it was cooked.


The restaurant served a unique type of rice, i.e. "red" rice which is less starchy. It went very well with the dishes served.


Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in this little gem in PJ. I would certainly go back again for my Thai food fix...

Indian Rojak @ Section 17, Petaling Jaya

It was a pretty hot afternoon yesterday.

So, I was in the mood for some Indian rojak & so, took a drive down to Section 17, PJ to "tapao" some.


It is absolutely delicious! The portion is huge with lots of unhealthy fried bits with shavings of cool cucumber , turnip and bean sprouts.

The peanut sauce is slightly spicy and tops off this local "salad".

All this for RM4.

The rojak stall is located along the main road of Section 17, very close to the medan selera near the flats. I highly recommend this stall...

It's a very unique date. I only wished that I had published this post at 10pm...

Speaking of dates, it just so happens that I've just hit the 2nd anniversary of me getting more serious with my photography hobby.

Looking back, my style certainly has changed within the past 2 years. I've certainly moved on from a newbie to a slightly less newbie photographer. LOL!

I'm just exhausted.

I can't understand why.

Perhaps this picture sums it up...


Here's to the mid-week... ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzz

P/S: I'm probably exhausted from a pretty rough week, as well as battling back pains.. yet again!

PP/S: This picture was taken about a year ago... Funny how I didn't got around to post it up.
