Noble House luncheon

today is 30th April right ? yeah .. i lost count of what is the days laio, cause I don’t work anymore, student life is hard, sigh.. its only been a month and i feel like eternity, argh .. stop this pain..
went for lunch at this place called Noble House,seated at lovely table number 22, this place which serve really good Chinese food, it was actually a buffet spread, you pay RM39++ or either the RM50++ ok, why the two pricing, the first price is for some poor sharks fella that got his fins cooked in crab roe, and the other RM50 is for another shark who got his fin cooked in better broth, well you choose.
so you pay for those price and you get a whole buffet spread for you, i think its really reasonable, as the food was not say very excellente but not say very bad wor.. its in the 3.5/5star type. what you expect from Peking duck, lobster salad, fresh oyster and sashimi or even bakes scallop or fresh prawns.. sigh .. its just food wor.. the dim sum section got lots of wanton, pau, sticky rice and other variety, there is a clay pot section where they cook stuff like erm .. not sure..  was too stuffed to even visit the porridge section,
Liking the soybean milk and the fruits, but i was really stuff to taste the red bean paste and the ice creams.. well maybe there is a next time. oh do make reservation as its kinda full wan wor.. for the price you pay.. its worth it! have a try one day .. pics posted on my photos section

Subjectiveness of Girls beauty

i was waiting for Jason while he picked up his car in the workshop and this hit me, (oh yeah flashback 5 hours back to 11am)
 
Lawrence came to pick me up at my crib and Jason came by to ask us to pick him up at the workshop, cause his car got knocked on the front, he was basicly fixing his car and that was suppose to be done by last saturday, lazy bugger.. ok then after we got him at the workshop we went off for lunch at none other than JIMMY’S Bah Kut TEh, wow .. it was superb, this guy used to be at Under the bridge near tepi sungai, well thats what Lawrence and Jason said, the BKT was absolutely great, the soup, the rice, the meat tenderness.. i ate the whole plate of rice even before they served the BKT, yeah i know .. i am a pig.. a hungry man is a sad man.. well so i totally recommend you guys to eat there, 5 star BKT !
 
They came to my room to hang out after the heavy lunch and lawrence was fitting some software into my comp, hehe .. not telling you what that is.. but its making me happy for sure.. ahah ..  Jason was watching this movie called HOSTEL, courtesy of JACK, the movie has gore in it.. and i like gore.. to be honest.. this is kinda sick, i like to see banged up car with head splatterd around the curb, or bodies of accident victim lay sproyling on the roadside.. what bout AXE being stucked to a person’s head while he is still alive.. woohoo.. the high…ahah .. man .. i am getting kinda crazy these days..
 
okok.. Jason picked me up later to go to IKEA to get some furnishing for his new REARRANGED ROOM, i think its a copy of my room, thats what i think . .ahah .. but its cool.. more place to hang out.. cause he will make the room nearly like mine, okok .. back to the workshop thingy .. i was sitting in his car waiting for him to pick his car out and this thing flashed in my mind,i was thinking to myself i dont think models are pretty, but some guys workship them like some angels sent from heaven, to me i think amber is so-so, but some guys would go like NO WAY ! AMBER is like the total bomb, nope.. nah .. she doesnt appeal to me, i think that what i see is pretty may not be pretty to you, its subjective.. what i see is perfect figure, you may think out of shape..
 
you wanna know who i think is gorgeous .. this girl right here..  she has everything, eyes, hair, curves, skin tone and sex appeal..the whole package..

 then off on my bike, sped off like a demon as i know i reserved my energy for this and my last 5k, moving moving, the sharp pain in turn becomes AIR, i kept burping air out from my mouth, must be the powergel mixed with my water and whatsevers inside my stomach, felt abit better now, moving even faster, (MISTAKE NUMBER 2) DONT MOVE FASTER (MAINTAIN) there is where i got my cramp on my calf, shit.. aRGH ! loss about 5min stretching out my calves.. agony of wasted time, the whole 45k i took it easy cause i worry a bigger CRAMP will gnaw my calves and thats it for my ride.. ahah .. so i maintain my speed about 20 – 25kph, good slopes and hills. i love it. i was downing my powergel at one point i nearly mistaken my route, ahaha .. skidded my backtire like some stunt dude.. ahah..ya la .. keep pyschoing myself, say this aint fun .. this aint good, quit ler.. ahah ..

Sheryl Crow – Good Is Good

this song holds lots of meaning, how you want to find the meaning is up to you.. i love this song.. it gives lots of inspiration to me.. what does it means to you ?
 
 
Sheryl Crow – Good Is Good lyrics
 
 
Good is good and bad is bad
You don’t know which one you had
She put your books out on the sidewalk
Now they’re blowing ‘round
They won’t help you when you’re down

Love’s on your list of things to do
To bring your good luck back to you
And if you think that everything’s unfair
Would you care if you’re the last one standing there

And everytime you hear the rolling thunder
You turn around before the lightening strikes
And does it ever make you stop and wonder
If all your good times pass you by

I don’t hold no mystery
But I can show you how to turn the key
Cause all I know is where I started
So downhearted
And that’s not where you want to be

And everytime you hear the rolling thunder
You turn around before the lightening strikes
And you could find a rock to crawl right under
If all your good times pass you by

When the day is done
And the world is sleeping
And the moon is on its way to rise
When your friends are gone
You thought were so worth keeping
You feel you don’t belong
And you don’t know why

And everytime you hear the rolling thunder
You turn around before the lightening strikes
And does it ever make you stop and wonder
If all your good times pass you by

When the day is done
And the world is sleeping
And the moon is on its way to rise
When your friends are gone
You thought were so worth keeping
You feel you don’t belong
Neither do I

ok .. first up, i was cycling along bentong and bentong is this place which potrays the ghetto of America, its really screwed up and lots of gangbangers.. aha . using the exact words like those niggas.., well its not that bad, its just that it USED to be famous for gangsters and lots of murders etc..etc. u name it they got it, but now its not that bad.. its just a place for drug pushers and some little gang fights and all, but besides that .. its a nice place in Ipoh, i stayed with my friend Sam, we reached Ipoh on a Saturday evening cause Sam was working and we met up with Stanley for Dim Sum at a place behind Shell along Bruce road. slept early to get up morning at 7 to help Sam make some curry puff,
 
its a beautiful sunday morning, Sam and the gang, oops.. i mean Sam and the family is going out for church so i already decided to bring my bike along to see the scenery of Ipoh, i took off as soon as they went off to church while cycling i passed by this shoplot, as you can see (ok refer to the photos once you finished reading ok) there is lots of pigeon sitting ont he cable and the shoplot, infact, the picture is just the tip of the iceberg, there was plenty more wher that came from, i took picture of the old buildings and went to this small chinese temple below a bridge, its so funny how its situated underneath the bridge, as you can see the second picture of the temple, the old ppl was too shy when i told them to pose for me, see all the old ladies on the lefT ! haha .. so funny .. friendly people.. chatted with them .. making jokes as one of them kept asking me for money so that i can have good luck ? how is that by giving her money ? i rather give the temple .. ahah
 
i cycle on and i saw something that attracted me to stop, its this market on Memory lane, it looks just like thieves market in Singapore,i dismounted my bike and i was walking along the traders.. i can tell you, you can find any thing here, lots of old stuff thought, even screws, erm .. brush, painting, old vinly records, spoons, used shoes, etc..etc.. and all of a SUDDEN .. i saw this man selling COCK PUMPS and sexual enhancer.. ahha .. wah ah pek doing good business ler.

Blog about this when i was leaving..

Leaving Singapore

 

What journey lie’s ahead of me? At the moment I am leaving singapore on the 9th of April at 10pm, I don’t understand this feeling engulfing me, it seems like a black hole that came out of nowhere, this feeling is something I have never felt before, it has abit of fear yet strange kind of uncertainty, uncertainty that claims a big chunk of my soul, dragging within my heart. It seems as though fear stare me straight in the eye! I ponder on the possibility that lies ahead of me.

 

I ask myself, where thou shall set foot on thee soil next? and I wonder, wonder with a great big question mark on my forehead, tipping over me. Tipping down till it reaches my heart, I feel failure close to me, as I always think that life is full of failures, that way we learn never to make the same mistakes again. But even if we ever do make the same mistake by trying another approach, its still ok.

 

its about venturing to the unknown where you shudder the feeling of fear. Venturing to something you believe it will work, have you ever thought of a plan so perfect, you think it was fool proof, but when you start to initiate those plans you see the loop holes that was never thought off, suddenly you fool proof plan is beginning to fall apart, and BANG, you hit the wall thinking of diversion and diversity or another plan, which is called PLAN B, ever thought of that ? well i think everyone is the same. none is perfect as GOD ! as GOD Is only ONE !  

 

Is life a plan where we need to make our step carefully and trying not to foil a step? Lifes abour making goals issint

Short term, med term, and long term, have you EVER made those goals and stuck to it? Hardly seem to get it right, right? cause along the way your plans get caught up with something else, but the main thing here is about the END goal, try not to veer yourself into another thing to much, may it be another hobby? A new friend, accommodate to it then Focus on your goals, that something else that made you veered your goals hasn’t been all bad I tell ya, it could be blessing in disguise,


True to Focus

i was reading this on the website and i find it so true, its about a ice speed skater who hold true to his words on trianing !

 

"That way, Cheek could focus on his task and ignore "what my competitors are doing. Don’t worry about anything else that you have no effect over."

While speed skating’s a sport that’s won and lost by hundredths of a second, Cheek doesn’t worry about his finishing time. As with any task he undertakes, he keeps his focus on his final goal."

 

 
"You have to be passionate about the sport. You have to love it," he said. "Otherwise it’s not worth doing it. No one speed skates for the money. And no one does it because they want to get famous. It’s much more important to enjoy something and be excellent at it because you want to see how far you can go with it, or see how you can excel.
 
i find these teaching very true, you have to love the sport to do it, if not, you will be only be doing what you THINK is cool, dont let that happen, think what you truly want, this actually does not applies to sports only, in real life also, FOCUS and STAY TRUE to yourself !
 
catch ya guys later

back from Ipoh and into Singapore

Back from Ipoh on Sunday, terrible jam from the highway as everyone is coming back North back to Kuala Lumpur as they went back home town to participate in the anniversary of the death (ching Bing) meaning cleaning of the grave year, it was a massive jam like 7 kilometers but I used the emergency lane as i was in a rush for time, i have to reach the bus depo at 11pm but at 7pm i was still in the jam on the highway, sigh.. reached home at around 9pm took my bike out from the car and bags.. rushed off to Singapore on the same day, damm tired ler i tell you its like driving for 500k and straight into the bus of another 300k journey down south!
 
lucky today was not a bad day, slept thru out the whole day as thougt i was a baby, so tired didnt even do my swim and my run ! i felt guilty now :( ARGH !! someone scold me ler..
 
i will post of what happeend in Ipoh once i get back next week, Ipoh was beautiful i tell you ! none can describe it ! i caught a few pictures of Ipoh ! will show you all soon !  take care and from Singapore with Love -Isaac-

Ipoh Hor Fun anyone ?

Its a Beautiful Saturday, and i would be traveling up north to see whats lies ahead in the Ipoh’s road, well in fact i am actually heading down to Ipoh to check out some supplies for future endoing, Sam was the one who ask me to go along to see this business and i hope that things would turn out well, to strive for something from nothing is actually hard to project and to envision on what will happen in the future.
 
i will be in Ipoh for the weekend and i will be traveling down South to Singapore to get some stuff for my competition. i wont be online till next Sunday as i will be in Singapore for a week, none to call me none to distract me, as i have two assignments due next week, but only handing in the week after..man i hope i am not going to be in trouble for that.  I need to adapt myself to the free time and keep myself busy instead of lazing on the bed the whole day.
 
see you next week guys, will post up the pictures of the trip soon ! take care and god bless as i always say everytime catch ya later !
