Oriental Pavilion

There is an Oriental Restaurant at Jaya Supermarket at first just the opposite from here. Now another has opened in here, Jaya 33. Upgraded, more hygienic and a more comfortable place for dim sum.

As the first waitress arrive to our table, she served us with roasted pork! Siew Yoak!

Ratings: 9 / 10

Feast your eyes on the sauce, and guess what it is? I bet your first answer is mustard right? Incorrect! The sauce that you are looking at is WASABI! Yellow-dyed wasabi. Syok! I've tried roasted pork with chilly or mustard but not with wasabi before, but it is still a suitable combination. Well, actually any sauce will suit it except for thousand island and mayonnaise.

Overall Ratings (including the porridge): 7 / 10

Few platter of dim sum and Fried Mee Hoon. There's also a bowl of porridge which I didn't take a picture of it due to some inconvenience...

Ratings: 5 / 10

The worst was the Fried Mee Hoon. The mee hoon was okay but the little pieces of prawns are tasteless... Therefore, a big disappointment to the mee hoon... I can say this, the chef in Mayang Plaza is better than here.

As we were leaving Jaya 33, I tried to take a picture of the title and this is what happened to the picture... A LAMP POST interfering it! This is because the car was accelerating and I was unable to take a good picture of it...

As the car gained more speed leaving me without a picture of the title, I quickly refresh the camera and took a quick 2nd chance snap of it... WHAT THE HECK! The lamp post appeared right in front of the screen again... Feeling like I was cursed or something...

Maybe next time I'll be taking the title with an elephant blocking my view eh?

Darn lamp post...

The Story Of Mat Rempits


Mat Rempits were formerly malay retards and idiots. However they evolved into sub-intelligent primates somewhere in 1971 and they ride bicycles in the circus. In 1982 they stopped growing tails, they moved on to 70cc motorbikes because they no longer have tails that might get burnt accidentally by the exhaust pipe.

Although they were still retarded during that time(and still are..) they somehow managed to look and learn the hollywood stunt mans. Through their understanding of friction, they created a super-low-cost-and-fuel-efficient method of riding the motorbikes. The Mat Rempit is Malaysia's super-low-cost-pastime for Malay retards to show-off their biking skills on the traffic-ridden streets of Kuala Lumpur.

These kids are so desperate, they must do zig zag like a monkey, look backwards at full speed (very important tactic) and suddenly stop at roadside smoking, phone calling, etc. The crazier they drive, the sexier they look, it seems.

Mat Rempits also have been influenced by the western art and media culture, taking up terms such as Superman , Spiderman, Ironman, Cicakman and also Deadman. They start from young, when their dads give them their very first "kapcais" (100cc motorbikes).

However, they are also very patriotic too by waving Malaysian flags all around during Independence Day shouting "Merdeka!", and then ending up under a van.

They are also main contributers to Malaysia's Vision 2020 goal to have a 70 million population through mass rape of gullible Malay teenagers and their fellow Minah Rempits. Their role is absolutely crucial because the population growth of the Chinese and the Indians are grinding to a halt - both due to migration and improved family planning. The government hopes someday to populate the entire streets with crazy-ass Mat Rempits and show the entire world just how responsible Malaysian bikers are.

  • The Superman style was create by lying down horizontally on the bike and speeding at 150kmh. Guiness world of records were amazed when they tested the results and found out the this method actually increased the speed by 20% and giving them +2 bonus when evading police roadblocks. The Sailboat method was also a jaw-dropping skill where the rempit stands on the seat of the bike and control the bike via their feet. This method harness the wind's energy and thus lowers fuel consumption and saving enough money to buy drugs and cigarettes, giving them -25% fuel consumption, +10% money saving, +3 bonus when there is a strong wind. Another way is where the rempit does a willy where they will carry the front wheels and ride only on the back wheel. With less surface touching the ground, they manage to lower the friction, this is the most common method and can be found on the streets of Penang almost every midnight.
  • The Deadman method is usually found near traffic lights or under a lorry's wheel. Usually rempits will zig-zag in traffic and end up under a lorry or fly across a junction when the traffic light is red at the speeds of 120km/h and usually end up colliding with a solid object. This is another common method in rempiting especially among the newbies. However, there is one drawback. This skill is the ultimate skill where the user can only cast it once in their life. After casting it, no cards can be drawn and regrets are not accepted. Loser loses 40 lives and gains a +150% pain bonus and +3 bonus from instant death. If user has helmet, loser only loses 30 lives and gains only 120% pain bonus and +30% chance of succumbing into a coma.

  • The Spiderman method is where rempits ride the motorbike in pairs. The pillion rider stands at the back of the seat. The driver gains -20% fuel consumption because the pillion harnesses the energy from the wind. The pillion rider gets high and starts swinging his hand like a propeller and thus giving the motorbike a +50% speed boost for 8 seconds. During this time, there is a 20% chance that the pillion rider will fall off the bike and suffer broken bones. This is probably the best way to enjoy rempiting if you do not have driving license.


I just know that Mat Rempits can't rempit like this guy...

The Garden

Paying a visit to The Garden is like paying a visit to "Food Heaven". The floor I am referring is the lower ground of the mall. I got the feeling like I'm in some kind of Australian mall. Floor tiles are different from other malls and that is the catch! A different environment of creativity and it is a challenger of Star Hill. Shops opened here are higher grades than the shops in 1 Utama by wealthy people and a lot of imported things (comestibles,attires,footwear,bags,etc.) from the Japanese, Australians, Siamese, Americans, Germans and a lot more which I can't remember...

Here what you are seeing are ice-creams from the Japanese. A variety of them!

Anyone wants some crustaceans as junk food?

Ratings: 8 / 10

Bought the ice-cream from that Japanese shop. It taste drier than our local ice-cream but it is still nice.

Some cute soft toy...

Went up a floor and this is how it looks like...

Me... staring below... at the food... people... eating...

Talking about food, my family and I went to have Thai food.


Time to rate some Thai food :)
But first a glass of water to quench my thirst after a long exploration of the mall.

To start with the appetizers, we had Fish Cakes.

Ratings: 7 / 10

And the Pandan Chicken.

Ratings: 10 / 10

This is the best! Yeah, 10 out of 10! A must try dish in Flying Chillies.

Ratings: 6 / 10

The main courses are the Pineapple Fried Rice with less oil, less salt which my father demanded. Not really good nor bad, just fine. Maybe is the lack of salt, because I love salty food.

Ratings: 8 / 10

We shared this Stewed Beef Noodles. There is a lot of meat and the noodles are great! It has a strong aroma made by the soup, some kind of herb smell.

Ratings: 8 / 10

A bowl of Red Water Chestnut as a dessert. They make good dessert too! If you haven't tried out Thai food before, try here, Flying Chillies! The prices are RM5~20 in range. Remember, try their PANDAN CHICKEN!

Sunway Pyramid 2

After a long time, contractors and workers worked hard on constructing the second part of Sunway Pyramid. Now, Sunway Pyramid got the term 'Old Wing' & 'New Wing' same as 1 Utama and it is larger than 1 Utama, is that true? I think so...

It's actually quite plain but they've got glowing pylons for the support of the mall.

I saw something shiny in one of the shops displaying this!

WOO! I've saw this more than 10 times if I have not mistaken. It's got all these cool chess units like Dungeons & Dragons.

This is definitely better than my LOTR chess set because its pewter.

After 7 hours of shopping with my family, we head back to the old wing and stopped at the ice skating ring.

My grandmother laughed at a malay girl and my father laughed at an indian... I was NOT laughing until my grandmother's laughter made me burst out my laughing gas... Its not good to laugh at people even though you do not know how to skate. Bad granny!

Time for us to have the last meal of the day. We have 2 choices, either this...

The King of Sushies, OR this...

King of Steaks. I've waited a long time dying to have an experience in Tony Roma's but we ended up in a different restaurant... this...

Didn't take a picture of the restaurant and just the menu, Restaurant 3JC. Was not in the mood to blog about this restaurant cause it was having a lack of food supplies. I ordered the cheese baked rice and they say NO MORE CHEESE! Then, I ordered the curry rice and they say NO MORE CURRY! I gave up ordering and my grandmother ordered the vegetarian meal, some kind of tofu and they say NO MORE TOFU! I was so irritated by their service...

Anyway, we had our dinner there yet with a bad impression for it......

My Collection Of Chess Sets

Most of the hobbies we heard from people is collecting stamps. However, I collect chess sets. Check out this one, a chess set made by wood. The surface is completely smooth in every edges. You can just feel the enjoyment while handling the set.

For the units, they are made by small pieces of wood all carving into the original shape of chess units.



All of the units are perfectly made and well-shaped. I bought the set from Atria's side stall and this is my first wooden chess set.

The second one was from my mum's colleague. I was glad looking at this one because this is rather special than the previous one. Different casing and units, but the detriment of this set is the spacing of the square grids was too small. Although, the spacing is not suitable for the units, I can have another battleground for it like the previous chess set.

What I like about this set is the easy handling handle of the casing and of course the cool ancient-typed units.

The King is the tallest and coolest among others.



Now, my third and my most valuable set, The Lord Of The Rings chess set. This set was not bought but was trade with Bonuslink points. It gave me an exciting feeling looking at the attractive casing and showing off some of the character-typed units.

The battleground...



Wish the units were pewter. Ironically, it was made up of plastic. At least the units have their looks.

Gold (Dark Forces)

  • Goblins (Pawn)
  • Orcs (Rook)
  • Uruk-Hai (Knight)
  • Cave Troll (Bishop)
  • Ring Wraith (Queen)
  • Saruman (King)
Silver (Light Forces)
  • Sam (Pawn)
  • Boromir (Rook)
  • Aragorn (Knight)
  • Frodo (Bishop)
  • Galadriel (Queen)
  • Gandalf (King)


Ring Wraith

This chess set was worth exchanging points for it as it has only a limitation of 1000 stocks. Maybe willing to sell it off as collecter's item.

A BIG thank you to the director, Peter Jackson, for this great and successful movie LOTR. Best movie in December 2001 (Fellowship of the Ring), the late 2002 (Two Towers), and December 2003 (Return of the King).
