I Have a Date with Furniture

Image
Designer Coffee, swiped from williamnyk on Flickr. Mumsy and I went to the 8:45 am mass on Sunday cause she had some charity function to attend at Kuchai Lama. So by 10:30 am, I was already in the vicinity ready to pick KH up for some paktoh time. Drove all the way to The Strand cause KH bought some vouchers to Wood and Steel, a coffee house cum furniture gallery. I'm sure you're smart enough to guess that their furniture is all made of wood and steel. Done up quite nicely with all their best pieces in the cafe. Coffee wasn't bad and the food was OK too (served in flat metal plates as though you're a cowboy eating by the fire.. hmm Brokeback Mountain style). Spent most of my time admiring their furniture and camwhoring. Didn't know what to do after that, so we explored The Strand. Basically a dead place. The mall just opened though and I'm sure it'll die soon. KH actually bought a pot of Moth Orchids from one of the lone kiosks there (after much deliberation…

H1N1

Sick :\, swiped from Taylor+Stevens on Flickr. Note: The kids and I are all sihat walafiat now

For the past few days, Big Monster had been complaining of stomach aches, headaches, flu and fever. His mother brought him to the pediatrician and they ran a few tests. He tested positive for Influenza A. The doctor put him on Tamiflu. First thing they did was to quarantine the kid to the second floor in order to protect Little Monster. That didn't quite work out cause just one day later, Little Monster starting burning up. In the end, Little Monster and his mum moved over to my place. The next morning, I picked SK up from the Nissan Service Centre and we all went to the kiddy specialist in Seri Petaling. Our queue number was 26, but the current number being served was 17. Not too bad. The nurse gave us 45 minutes to have breakfast. I had a bowl of pork noodles nearby. The whole clinic was swarming with kids and germs. Suspecting the same of Little Monster, the doctor performed the Influen…

First Wedding of the Year

Image
Seasonal, swiped from williamnyk on Flickr. Sunday was the usual routine of church just that on that day, I drove towards Damansara rather than Puchong on the LDP. Decided to revisit Kura again after nearly a year. Don't really understand why they like to seat customers deep in the bowels of their restaurant. I told the waitress, I want more light and she nodded. I guess I should have specified sunlight! Seasonal items were the sanma, but the sashimi was sold out. Bah. Just shared a chirashi-don with mum, paired with some seasonal appetisers and seafood in apple cider vinegar. Quite a satisfying meal. Loved the dainty stuff. Went shopping after that. Planned to use my Tangs vouchers, but we didn't see anything that we liked. Didn't stay too long as we had another wedding banquet to attend at night. This time round at Tropicana Spring Garden (always drop off the old and infirm at the clubhouse before proceeding to the basement car park! Else you will have to climb more than …

Friends from Arrival

Image
Croque Madame, swiped from williamnyk on Flickr. ChatMate was back from a long three week visit to the United States and was transiting in KL for one day before flying back to Sarawak. The cheeky fellow arranged a meet-up on Saturday morning. At about 8:30 am, I picked him up and we went to Ficelle Boulangerie Pattiserie (always a mouthful) at Taman Desa. Much to my surprise, Nicky05 arrived at the venue earlier than me (finally broke his trend of tardiness)! And with a new guy in tow. Not his boyfriend he declared, just some guy he agreed to pick up from the airport. His name was Svan. Found a table quite easily. According to ChatMate, Nicky05 looked a bit fearful in my presence. Even regarding the choice of table, he wanted to make sure I would approve. Am I such a mangzang ogre? LOL. Truth be told, I shouldn't have brought ChatMate to eat a Western breakfast. Bet he preferred wantan noodles with thick slices of charsiew after weeks of angmoh food. Got him the breakfast platter w…

Babysitting The New Year

Image
Christmas @ The Gardens Mall, swiped from williamnyk on Flickr. How did I spend the first day of 2014? Babysitting of course. Brought them out for breakfast then subsequently to The Gardens Mall for some shopping. The Christmas decorations were still up, not yet overridden by the red lanterns of CNY. Decorations there had always been minimalistic, but I felt that they did quite nicely for 2013. Very British and woody, like straight out of someone's drawing room. Plenty of red roses, knick-knacks and a mounted deer head for good measure. Did some shopping. Bought a couple of working pants. Going to retire some of the regular fit slacks. Wearing slim fit would be a reminder to at least maintain my current measurements. Shockingly, I found a pack of DKNY boxer briefs in the changing room. Someone must have smuggled them in for a try. Masyallah. And mum found a red Radley handbag that she liked. Perfect for CNY. As usual, the kids were a challenge to herd around. They never fail to giv…

Dah 2014 Lah Wei!

Rosary, swiped from williamnyk on Flickr. Note: My blog has already caught up to 2014! Prise be to God!

Like on Christmas Eve, my big boss declared half day off for New Year's Eve. But then, I had already taken leave. Tak kisahlah, berlambak leave to clear (so 'inch' right?). Didn't do much at all. Just rested and went to church. Arrived early enough to participate in the Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary before mass started. Sad to say that it has been some time since I used my rosary. Funny to note that the rosary was bought by SK's ex-boss during their holiday to Italy. They thought it was a suitable souvenir for a Protestant. LOL. Since the intended employee rejected it, I got a pretty rosary from Vatican City! Lots of chairs were arranged, but they weren't used. People still prefer to celebrate in a more hedonistic way (or less spiritual way) or not celebrate at all I guess. Thankfully, the priest didn't rehash his sermon from last year talking abou…

Drama Minggu Ini

Image
Duck Kuay Teow Th'ng, swiped from williamnyk on Flickr. Noticed that mum was behaving a bit weirdly on Sunday morning. And while driving to church, I found out why. She cracked and and started venting her anger. From what I heard, she was angry at my sister for something she said, or more accurately, something she did not say. After weeks and weeks of taking of her grandkids day in and day out, my mother suddenly decided not to be taken for granted anymore. Ugh, the drama. Had to placate her to the best of my abilities. The Eucharist probably succeeded where I failed. Drove to Bandar Puteri Puchong to look for eats. Saw a shop with good business called Penang One so I guess it was a safe bet. It was actually a collection of 'famous' hawker fare from Penang and I just came back from Penang. LOL. Never mind. One can never have enough time and stomach capacity to try everything anyway. The food is supposedly imported fresh from Penang daily. Tried the assam laksa since I didn&…

Dual Celebrations

Image
Madonna & Child, swiped from williamnyk on Flickr. Attended a wedding mass on Saturday afternoon at SFX. This followed a buffet dinner the night before at the bride's house. A fantastic spread with most of the major meats-- two types of chicken, lamb, prawn, calamari and fish. Back to the mass. The bride's family is Catholic but the husband ain't. So it was a short affair. And when it came Holy Communion, less than ten people came up. As usual, sis was working, so the kids were with mum and I. Big Monster was behaving horribly. He wouldn't keep his trap shut and was being a pain so I had to separate the kids. Dragged him to sit at the back pew so that the proceedings won't be disturbed. He truly tested my patience that day. They had a little tea party after mass with proper teacups and plates, and yet I found myself using the disposable stuff. LOL. That's what you do when eating with kids. Later that night, I joined an impromptu dinner with Jay and Khatijah.…

Ever Wondered Why Santa Doesn't Have Kids?

Image
Ball Heaven, swiped from williamnyk on Flickr. Christmas was a major monster madness for me. Mum went to get her hair done at A-Saloon, IOI Mall, so the whole tribe went. The cold perm took nearly three hours, so I had the fun of babysitting. My sister suggested that I take them to Reka Zone, which I did. Cost MYR33 for two monsters. Actually monsters below the age of two do not need to pay, but I did not have the MyKID to prove it. And you have to wear socks inside, else they charge you a hand and a foot for it. So what do you get for your money? Just a padded playground really. The staff won't take care of your kids. They're just there to make sure that monstrous monsters don't tear the house down or get themselves killed. The main attraction of the whole place is balls. Lots and lots of balls. Plastic balls. Nerf balls. All sorts of colours. Pools of balls. They even have pneumatic machines that pump balls all over the place. If you like, you can even have a battle with…

Post-Penang Christmas Eve

Image
MyStuff, swiped from williamnyk on Flickr. Woke up bright and early on Christmas Eve. KH offered to suck me off but I wouldn't let him make me cum. Was conserving my energy for the long drive home. I jacked him off instead. Hehe. Breakfast was arranged by SK's Penang colleague. Lets call her Sandra cause her demeanour and voice reminds me of Sandra Ng Kuan Yu so much. Hahaha. She picked us up and brought us to coffee shop by the name of Restoran KCC. Tried a little bit of everything-- paitee, ham bun, pork soup noodles, yam cake and white curry noodles. I loved the curry noodles the most. We then went to another row of stalls at an unknown roadside for otak-otak and bak kwa bun. Otak-otak in Penang is different from what I'm used to. In Kuantan, the fish meat is whole. In Muar, more like fish cakes. But in Penang, it has the consistency slightly harder than steamed egg. And it has a trademark daun kalau inside. The bak kwa bun is very soft and small. I could finish one in …

Penang II: Coffee on Coffee

Piccolo Latte, swiped from williamnyk on Flickr. Note @ 2014|02|06 : Updated with more pics!

Nothing beats waking up to your BF next to you. The embrace. The kiss. The hard dick that greets your hand when shove it down his trunks. Needless to say, we finished the previous night's unfinished business there and then. All groggy from the sex, we went out looking for food. Pooh recommended that we try out Wheat Connection for its wonderful pastries, but it was closed till after Christmas. Crap. Went to a Restoran Golden Lake at Sungai Nibong instead for hawker fare. Think it was the wrong place, but we were to hungry to care. Simply ordered Penang Hokkien Mee (thumbs up), duck koay teow th'ng, egg and kaya toast and mixed pork soup. Next up was to get ur coffee fix at Coffee Elements (did you know that C8H10N402 is chemical structure of caffeine?) in All Seasons Place. The whole place is like IOI Boulevard, only dead-er (literally too cause I heard that its built on a Chinese cemet…

Penang I: William on William

Image
Old Dim Sum, swiped from williamnyk on Flickr. Pooh and ZaiZai invited me to Penang roughly more than a couple of years ago. I had lost count how many times they asked me about it. But anyway, finally made it happen with KH, Apollo and SK. Road trip!!! Apollo drove SK's Almera as it was bigger compared to his new Attrage. He picked us up at 7:00 am and by 9:00 am we were having breakfast at Restoran New Paradise, Bercham. Seemed to be popular for their dim sum, noodles and bao. Unfortunately, most of the dim sum was sold out and we only managed to get some charsiew bao and loh mai kai. In my opinion, I've had better charsiew bao else where. Think the burnt the meat a little. The kau yuk bao was much better though. Since the place was only 1 km from my mum's recalcitrant tenant, I asked Apollo to drop me there to take a look. According the the neighbour, they had moved out, but still come back now and then to feed the cats the what not. From the looks of things, they still …
