Was in Genting Highlands again during the long weekend (Thaipusam holiday) and behold!
such a fascinating sight of pinkish lanterns!
i tink I can stare at it for hours...of course (if possibly) without the crowds down there...
and well, the below is an old prototype of the entire Genting area...I guess they gonna revise this soon when the 20th Century Fox theme park is complete...
the lover's bridge...will be a good meeting point during V-days...haha!
meanwhile, back in Klang Valley...these are the decors being put up in IOI City...yea, colourful pink, lime green, orange lanterns...
I tink lanterns are getting popular in CNY decors nowadays!
till then, Gong Xi Fa Cai
and wishing u abundance of wealth and joy in this Monkey year!

CNY is jst around the corner and malls are super-crowded with shoppers doing last minute shopping these days...
well that doesn't bother me as yours truly hav done the shopping weeks before...Back then, the decors were already up and beautifully decorating every corners of the mall. I guess many have posted them over in blogs and various online media, but i'm posting here again for 'record purpose' as well as to 'decorate' my plain looking blog with some 'festivity red'.
I kinda like The Gardens mall theme...sort of classic with creative arrangement of chinaware, silk and blossoming flowers
the décor looks like a gigantic 3-dimension CNY greetings card...
very oriental, classic and elegant
great to see such improvement (compared to last years' décor)
meanwhile in MidValley mall, the theme is kinda confusing...it's Monkey year, but they display goldfish (and underwater theme)...
where are the monkeys??? not a single one in sight
Instead I see this kissing fish!

There were times I do crave for some curry rice...well, any curry will do!
So I went into this place called 'Yoshinoya' and ordered Curry Katsu rice, with add-on runny egg...Kinda jumbo plate of rice as it is the most expensive item on the menu...but well, when i crave for curry rice, there's nothing can stop me from having it!
Portion is nice enuff for a hungry eater...but I think their curry doesn't taste like Japanese curry....due to the strong curry-taste.
Anyway, heck cares...
i tink i shall jst stick back to their beef bowl next time.

Been craving for noodles with runny egg yolks lately...yea...i must be crazy!
Hence i cooked this miso soup ramen + runny egg...which was actually Maggi mee but the soup base has been replaced with miso soup bought from Daiso. Add in some chili padi and i got the improvised spicy miso soup ramen! haha, syiok sendiri...
and not to be missed....when it comes to runny egg yolk and noodles, this chili pan mee should top the list!

Recently I hav been watching/listening to a few of Mariah Carey's old songs...and was so 'engrossed' with it...Why not? The younger Mariah is such a sweet, radiant & pretty lady with great voice and talent.
But too bad, that is the 'previous her'. I kinda miss this lady with superb voice and personality. She is much much much (x infinity) better than many young singers these days. At least she dun dressed weirdly & acting lewd in her mid 20's. The 'younger Mariah' can put Britney Spears, Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, Katy Pery, Lady Gaga, Ariana and many others to shame.

The other day I was clueless on what to have for dinner, and hence went to try out the newly opened Vietnamese eatery...which is no longer new to us (it already has a few branches in Klang Valley) - O Banh Mi.
It specializes in Banh Mi, which is sort of a Vietnamese baguette, but as I wasn't that fond of anything bread/buns, I ordered something else from the menu.
they hav set lunch as well...
the place isn't huge but it has ample seatings...
and here's my food - beef pho
with add-on...the Vietnamese spring roll
and lime soda
food was jst so-so...and taste kinda different...I wonder if that's the authentic taste or something wrong with my tongue...I've tried various spring rolls before in Vietnam, but this one that I came across doesn't taste similar to what I had over there...
Anyway, I guess this outlet has many room for improvement, especially on the pho...
alrite....I tink I shouldn't be commenting too much on other items which they dun specialize into....let them jst focus on their Banh Mi...*which I'm gonna try next time.
