The emerge of snow beer was quite long ago, but at this moment, not many snow beer restaurants actually survive. Restoran 2008 Snow Beer, is however an exceptionally. (This place is awesome for night owls too~ open until 130am)

Awesome Heng Kee Bak Kut Teh (兴记肉骨茶) @ Petaling Jaya Old Town

The origin of Bak Kut Teh (BKT) (肉骨茶) until today is still unclear, though, it is pretty much a famous Chinese delicacy. According to Wikipedia, there is even a power struggle/ debate on the origin of Bak Kut Teh between Malaysia and Singapore (which I think is pointless). To me, good foodie is not about origin, it's about how you integrate and improve the origins. Hahaha, Bak Kut Teh is a direct translation from Hokkien, known meat bone tea. But, it's said to be a fusion of Hokkien and Teochew food. Oh well, for those who have no idea (which is very unlikely for Chinese), BKT is mainly cooked with pork ribs, intestines, meat with a unique broth made up of different herbs and spices......Today, it is fatty Ipoh Boy, wondered into Petaling Jaya Old Town but not Klang (renowned for BKT), for an awesome Heng Kee Bak Kut Teh (兴记肉骨茶).

Perfect Day Trip in Ipoh (怡保) and Pulau Pangkor (邦咯岛) [Part 2]

As resumed from the previous [part 1], the journey continued further down the mystical island, where there was plenty of sunshines and breezes that day. Indeed it was a great day to visit Pulau Pangkor. It had been quite some time since we visited any beaches. As the car drove by a beautiful beach area, we parked by the roadside where ample parking spots were provided. Only then, we noticed by the beach, there lied a beautiful temple called Lin Je Kong Temple (灵慈宫).

Ben's @ Bangsar Shopping Complex

Bangsar Shopping Complex (BSC) has been a well-known posh mall in Kuala Lumpur area. Because I used to work in this area, I am kinda familiar with this place. Anyhow, Ben's was opened about 3 - 4 years ago in BSC, and I would say the decoration of the restaurant was superb, classy and out of the kind!

How to be a winner tip#2: GSC Movie Vouchers

#2: Be followers on official companies/ brands in apps like instagram, facebook, Line, Wechat and others

As I was very pre-occupied with my study and laboratory work last time, I still could make time to join a few contests. In this particular win, it was an e-voucher for GSC movie, which was from a lucky draw in facebook apps. Hahaha, I was happy enough to use to watch Wonder Woman, the hottest summer movie of 2017 (you can indeed check my review here too). Indeed, it saved about RM 19 for a movie. Seriously, nowadays, never thought that movie watching can be that expensive!

Traditional Porridge, by Hung Wang (汉元) @ Ipoh

Ipoh, as a world renowned foodie heaven, is often publicized for its delicious beansprout chicken noodles, salted chicken, chicken floss noodles, Cantonese dim sum, seafood, taufu fah and many more. But, to native Ipohrians, Ipoh Boy (me), there are so many other good food apart from the mentioned ones. A very local-known foodie, the traditional Teochew porridge in Ipoh, Hung Wang or 汉元 Restaurant,  has been overlooked by some locals and other foreigners.....

Manis - Earn Points from Your Used Receipt/Bill

(reference code) (reference code)

Since last year, I came across the Manis apps, which could be used to earn points from the used receipt/ bill. As can be seen, the Manis apps developer gives clear instruction on how to snap the pictures of your receipts. However, early this year, they changed the rule of 24 hour time frame to within the same day (before midnight) ........ This was totally inconvenient to me (and to other users too)......After a busy day, I usually take a bath and sleep. This rule is a big NONO to me.

Wonder Woman 2017: The Rise and The Fall

Ever since Wonder Woman (WW) played by Gal Gadot (GG) first appeared in the DC's Batman versus Superman (which was awful), she instantly stole the spotlight with a mere less than 10 mins of screen time. You could feel her strong presence. Of course, that was basically the spark for her own fiery Wonder Woman Movie 2017. I went to watch the greatly-rated movie in 2017 and here was my thought......<disclaimer: All images were obtained from online source, please contact me via email>

No Hassle Day Trip @ Kuala Sepetang (十八丁), Perak

The beauty of Perak, has often been represented by Ipoh, the Hill City. The tourists flock to Ipoh for its amazing architecturally-aesthetic old town, panoramic mountain view and of course, its heavenly food and drinks. Indeed, Perak is an amazing state in Malaysia. Now, I am not going to talk about my hometown today, but a nice place nearby Ipoh - Kuala Sepetang (十八丁), formerly knowns as Port Weld. It is about 1 hour drive from Ipoh ~ A nice getaway for people who like to experience this coastal town.

Let me present a very simple day trip plan for those who are interested to just go for leisure. Our case was we had a bunch of people on the road along with a cute baby. Thus, we could not be going for over-adventurous journey. The itinerary for the day trip was as follows:

Zakka Loft @ Ipoh

The phobia of writing still persists, after I have temporarily stopped writing my Ph.D thesis for about 2 weeks. Today, I finally picked up my weakening courage and wrote this post. It just took a lot of my might to revive my blogger life - take photos, select photos, edit photos, watermark photos and upload them to this post. 

In fact, to decide what to write, was far more challenging than I thought. I was thinking of writing my Europe trip sage with bitchy travelmate, or just writing all my "abuse" during my Ph.Dship. But, at the very last min, I decided to write what I love the most in my life - Food! What is more representing of myself - Ipoh Food !

Zakka Loft @ Ipoh

My impression of this Loft - " A fusion of funky and hippy cultures with a touch of art "

A Nightmare on Elm Street, From the Worst to the Best (1984 - 1994)

Blood and gore, ear-bursting screams and rapid heartbeats, with plot-twist and suspension, are the dreams come true for horror/ thriller movies lovers! In every every early days, humans are basically uncivilised. Even with evolution, part of us are still drenched with violence. Anyhow, I AM NOT PROMOTING VIOLENCE! SAY NO TO VIOLENCE, especially the abuse on man, woman, baby, children and animal.

Before I get way out of hand of my humanitarian side, I shall go back to today's topic on the series of movies, which started out as a very simple, low-cost and slasher's type of movie, A Nightmare on Elm Street.

I was not even born, when the first movie came out in 1984. But, eventually, this low-budgeted movie not only became a cult of the centuries, it is still being remade! Anyhow, the review will be presented from the worst to be the best, from 1984 - 1994.

The distance between my current post (2017) and previous post (2016) was a year, but more exactly 2 months ago. How time plays humans, just like the time in Lala Land.

Before going to Lala Land review, let's congratulation Lala Land on its success in 89th Oscar 2017. And, my prediction on Your Name (君の名は) was spot on! But, seriously, Zootopia? Anyway, the full winner list of Oscar 2017 is as follow:
