Suzuki Swift

31 03 2010

After getting my car polish and wax, I had this idea of taking a picture of my ‘new’ car. I drove along this straight road and waited for the moment when there were no passing cars. Don’t be misled by those Japanese words. My car is a plain vanilla ride without any modification done.





Posh Car Care @ Shah Alam

30 03 2010

One of the problem with owning a white body car is maintaining its paint surface from ugly swirl marks and dirt. I am quite particular when it comes to washing my car and 99% of the time, I would wash it by myself. However, as months go by, faint swirl marks started to appear despite being extremely gentle when I was washing it. There were also some persistent water marks which I can’t get rid of no matter how much car shampoo I used.

Finally, I turned to the Internet to look for a reliable Auto Detailing Specialist. I have heard many horror stories how bad workmanship resulted in more swirl marks on the car after polishing. Some even use cheap wax which doesn’t last long.

After doing a fair bit of research, I stumbled across Posh Care Care. Using Meguiar’s range of products which are known to be one of the best around, Posh Car Care offers a surprisingly good price for their polish and wax packages.

I made an appointment with them via e-mail a few days beforehand and promptly sent my car in at around 10:00 a.m. The place was already jammed packed by the time I arrived which is a good indication of their soaring business.

I was told that the 3 steps polish and wax will take around 5 hours or so.

This gave me some opportunity to take some pictures while waiting for my car to be pampered.

The workmanship is pretty good and the person who was attending to my car is very meticulous with his work.

From cleaning my car with clay bar to polishing it, every area of my car was given a good a pampering that it deserves.

After a long wait, I was pretty happy with the work done.

The surface is really smooth and looks as if it just came out from the showroom.

A word of advice. Go to their Subang outlet as they have a bigger floor space there to polish your car. Look for Deric at the contact details below.

I-City @ Shah Alam

26 03 2010

A few weeks back, my colleague suggested going to I-City in Shah Alam for some night shooting. Apparently, the place is decorated with colourful LED lights which makes the whole area illuminated with colours at night.

Located near to Padang Jawa, the place isn’t hard to find. Just drive along Federal Highway and keep a lookout for the directional sign.

Once we were there, my first impression was “Wow… This place is really colourful!”

It was quite impressive especially with big tall colourful trees surrounding the whole walkway.

However, they are not real trees. Instead, it is made from plastics with LED lights attached to it.

But it was not easy to take pictures there. Maybe my poor photographing skills make most of pictures look bland. In the end, I came up with the idea of doing some creative shots instead. I turn down my shutter speed and took some interesting abstract shots.





Putrajaya Bridge

The scenery at Putrajaya never fail to amaze me. This picture was taken a while back and I decided to post this up. It was my first time driving to this spot and admiring the unique architecture on the bridge near to the Putrajaya Convention Centre.

My camera got stolen

18 03 2010

At around 9:45 a.m, while I was crossing the road to my car at Taman Desa (near to Faber Tower), a snatch thief wearing a red T-shirt riding a motorbike came from behind and took my camera along with him. It happened too quickly and I was caught by surprise. A chase on foot was in vain as he rode off quickly, but not before I took a glance at his black visor helmet. My full camera accessories went along with him which costs me RM 7,000.

Details of my camera and accessories are as follow:-

Body: Nikon D300 (Very new condition) S/N: 6065764

Lenses:

16-85mm lens F3.5 – 5.6 S/N: 22086480
50mm F1.8 S/N: 0937773

Filters (CPL) with adapter ring
Camera Battery
Charger
Memory Card:

1 pc 8GB Sandisk Ultra II CF card
2 pcs Kingston 4GB CF card

Miscellaneous:

Giotto Air Blower

I don’t think I will be updating this blog often since I do not have a camera to take pictures.

Purchasing a new one is out of the question since I am still paying for the previous one via credit card.

To the bloody snatch thief who took my camera, I hope you end up in hell and die! You clearly do not have any conscience by taking other people belonging. Hope the bad karma will eventually come back to you in ten fold.





Restoran Bee Kin @ NZX

13 03 2010

A few weeks ago, I stumbled across this new Chinese coffee shop opened along the same row as Ming Yang at NZX, Damansara Ara. Since it was a new restaurant, we  decided to check out the place. Not all the stalls were opened but there were a handful of choices to choose from. My colleague ordered some Yong Tau Foo for us to share. The taste is not that bad.

Soaked in hoisin based sauce (sweet gravy), this is a variant from the more common soup based  Yong Tau Foo.

Brinjals or Eggplant is another common Yong Tau Foo which happens to be my favourite too.

The food are chopped into bite size pieces and then cooked with boiling broth. Yummy…

I ordered a plate of Wantan Mee. Surprisingly, the taste was quite good. Not the best Char Siew (barbecued pork) but it wasn’t bad either.

I took the curry chicken with gravy which was thick and rich with santan (coconut milk).

The noodle was springy and nicely cooked. Thumbs up for the taste.

Restoran Shabu-Shabu @ Bandar Puteri Puchong

11 03 2010

A few weeks back, I brought my parents to Restoran Shabu-Shabu at Puchong for dinner. It was their first time visiting this place although I have been there several times. My previous attempts to take pictures at this restaurant with my old Sony Alpha 200 failed as the lighting was pretty difficult to get good shots. Thankfully, the Nikon D300 didn’t have such problem as it was able to cope with the low lighting easily.

What makes Restoran Shabu-Shabu different from the rest of the buffet steamboat restaurant is the manner in which the food are being served. Placed on the conveyor belt akin to those at a Japanese restaraunt, various foods will slowly make its way to all the side tables waiting for the customers to pick them up.

Each customer will have their own steamboat pot which is a good thing for those who like to cook their own choice of food rather than sharing with other friends.

I took these slurpee which came in the form of orange flavour.

And here are some shots I took while waiting for my food to cook. Crab stick…

Mussels…

Fishballs…

Fishcakes…

Crabmeat balls…

Baby octopus (my favourite!)…

And a whole lot of other stuff to choose from…

For RM 26.90 per pax, it is certainly not cheap. But the variety of food to choose from kind of justify the price. A word of advice. It is better to go early as the place will be jam packed by 7 p.m. due to its popularity.

Wedding Card

9 03 2010

A few days ago, I received this cute card from my long time friend, Sharon. It turned out to be a a congratulatory card for my wedding. Nowadays, people hardly post any more cards due to the popularity of e-card. But in my opinion, receiving something tangible sure beats clicking on the virtual card on the computer screen anytime.

The card has a pair of couple sitting on a vintage car. The plate number reads “Love 1314″. Try translating that into Cantonese and you will know what it means.

But that’s not all. There is actually a detachable leaflet which can be pulled out from the bottom of the card.

A lovely sweet message on the leaflet. How nice!

Once the leaflet is pulled out, the couple sitting in the car would appear like this. I put the leaflet by the side to have a better view. So cute! Thanks Sharon.





Sun Sea Restaurant @ Taman OUG

6 03 2010

I have blogged about Sun Sea Restaurant before this. Last week, I went there again for lunch. This time, we ordered the dried version of the pork mee. It came in a bowl of kuey teow noodle with black sauce and fried pork lard.

The soup is still one of the best I have tried so far.

I also tried the roast chicken rice which is equally good. The chicken meat is tender while the rice is cooked with chicken broth.

This is one of the best chicken rice I have tried so far apart from Kie Kee at PJ Old Town.
