Burger babi bakar, Stampin

My 1st time having these famous burger.

We bought 1 pork cheese ham; and 1 pork cheese belly.

I really love the pork belly.

One thing that I don't like is the cabbage salad.  I would prefer it if they just use fresh slides of cucumber and tomatoes instead.

Total cost RM14.50
Next time I'll request without onion.

This seems like a fun app, I tried it out but I don't feel like posting it on my wall. I will just share it on this blog instead.  Good for archiving.

Have you got Your Times?

Winter solstice

Today is Chinese Winter festival. Thou I did not celebrate it, but I always like to have some Tong Yuan during the season.

These, I got from my lovely neighbour.

Nice not too sweet.

These, I bought from the morning market.

The aunty told me that she didn't use any artificial coloring in making these, she used different color of sweet potatoes instead.  Nyum.  Cost RM3.50.

When we were still kid, my mum used to make these too, but now no more, maybe because of her strict sugar diet.

RM300 Tax Rebate for Sports equipment

Dah beli alat sukan untuk tax rebate tahun ni? Beli tau, rugi tak claim, macam saya ni asyik hilang resit je.  Tapi apakah yang layak di-claim sebenar nya?

Jum tengok jawapan dari LHDN..

Apakah yang dimaksudkan dengan Peralatan Sukan? 

Alat - alat yang mempunyai jangka hayat yang singkat seperti bola golf dan bulu tangkis tetapi tidak termasuk pakaian sukan, contoh: pakaian renang dan kasut sukan.  Bagi sukan Fitness – apa - apa peralatan sukan berkaitan dengan aktiviti sukan tersebut adalah layak mendapat potongan di bawah perenggan 46(1)( l) ACP 1967.  Peralatan senaman seperti treadmill, exercise bike dan airwalker adalah dibenarkan. 

Bagi sukan Recreational – Diving diklasifikasikan sebagai sukan rekreasi, maka peralatan sukan berkaitan aktiviti tersebut layak mendapat potongan kecuali attire dan kasut.


Maksudnya kasut takleh, baju jersey pun takleh, basikal biasa kayo-kayo pun takleh? alahai...

Road to Borneo Highlands

I always wanted to visit Borneo Highlands, but I don't like to think about the narrow and winding road up there.

Few weeks ago the opportunity arise again, this time I just grasp it.

Let's see some of the photos that I managed to capture while on the way up the hill.

This is the official transport to Borneo Highlands, you can drive your own car too, but it is highly recommended to use the official transport.  For me I just let the pro do the job.

Let's start our journey.
It takes about 20-30 minutes drive up the hills.

Love the huge trees along the way.

 When you see this rows of pine tree, you know you have reach the destination.
*insert big smile on your face*

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt.1

I am very disappointed with the movie.  I was expecting for more action but didn't get any.

For me, the highlight of the movie is when Jennifer Lawrence sang The Hanging Tree.

All her original voice audio was removed from Youtube *as of today.
So I'm just going to share the cover version, which is quite good and has a similar voice to Jennifer.


Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
They strung up a man
They say who murdered three.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree.

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where dead man called out
For his love to flee.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree.

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where I told you to run,
So we'd both be free.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree.

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Wear a necklace of rope,
Side by side with me.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree.
