  • So I was at Thistle.

    Have been passing by Thistle several times, as and when we were in Johor Bahru, staying here, was my first. So I decided to give it a try. The front desk was not very welcoming, just 1 personnel at any one time.  Or at least when I was there, I approached the front desk for things such as where to for meals, drinks, fitness centre etc.  I needed to wait a while before attended, or I simply walked away, explore the place myself. Room layout is nice, I like the way how the door is at an angle so to provide great amount of privacy to the guests who stay…

  • Pudu Breakfast.

    When I was 10, our neighbours brought back 2 packs of Hakka Noodle from Pudu. She told me roughly when the stall is that time, I could vaguely remember the location. So after many years, I could still remember the taste of that Hakka Noodle, with the fried pork oil, minced pork, char Siew (caramelise grilled pork) as well as pork dumplings. The soup, must be one that boiled over many hours, imagine a good ramen soup, if it is bad, the ramen is bad also. This noodle stall has been around since 60s, according to the auntie once I spoken to. The owner makes the noodle, and everything else.…

  • Walking with Leica at night in Bandar Puchong Jaya.

    Our dear daughter has the ballet class at night, for an hour of waiting, instead of like most of the parents would do – waiting at the cafe or the ballet school with their phones, I chose to walk about, to digest the dinner I just had with Inez.  Better still, I brought the Leica along, as well as Fleet Foxes, streamed wirelessly on the bluetooth earphones. I talked to the helper at the food trucks before taking these pictures, as I think street photography should be given utmost care in terms of people privacy.  No one should be photographed without knowing that they are. I walked to the food…
