• #dirtymee #inconsistent #hardtomaintaingood

    Dirty Mee, a famous eatery in Lukut, before I continue, you are wondering the name. “Dirty?” you would ask. “Yes.  Nothing to do with the cleanliness of the place nor the food.” I would reply. Dirty Mee 拉渣面 was originally a stall setup next to a garbage dump.  The noodle was so famous, hand made, something like wan tan noodle, but not the same.    拉渣 means dirty.  Because the stall was next to the garbage, so it is called that, as easy to remember. Could be mistaken as Pan Mee, again no. However, the texture is more like wan tan noodle, I would say. We have been here before.…

  • Lukut before PD

    With the many things twins have to bring back to school, I offered them a ride back to their hostel on Sunday evening. We stopped by 1 place recommended by the school’s principal for quick bite. Over the school holiday, the very nice principal recommended few food places in Lukut and Port Dickson, I have passed by some of them, never knowing that the hidden germs these places are (ha ha). So, we were at Ah Boy Siew Yok (roast pork), which was just opened when we got there.  I could see some parents and students from twins school already there (how fast!). Waited in line patiently to order the…

  • Easy, Take It Easy

    I spent the Easter Sunday with the twins in Port Dickson, witnessing some breathtaking sunset in the evening before I began my journey back to the sub-urban, urban life. Since I have purchased the Leica, I love to start walking in the areas I will be at.  I spent time in Hong Kong streets, Bali tourists as well as non-tourist spots, the beautiful Rome streets, and breathtaking Vatican City, Sydney and the Blue Mountain, Jakarta streets, and Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka streets, shrines, temples, people on the streets, and I guess the journey to photograph the great things will continue.  I especially love taking pictures in places like Kampar, Slim…

  • Janji Kosong (Empty Promise)

    Kosong is a common word among Malaysian. Milo Kosong, Teh O Kosong, Kopi O Kosong, Wan Tan Mee Kosong, Roti Kosong etc. It just means, plain, or without sugar, additional stuff. When I was growing up in Cheras, in my family home, Wan Tan Mee Kosong was among my favorite.  My father passed me RM1 for my school daily expenses, to save it up, I decided to eat at the stall nearby our house before heading to school, though the noodle hardly could last me till the evening, end of school. Well, I was much thinner then ha ha.

  • A Wonderful Time Together

    Seldom find the time to be totally away from work with our children. We decided this time round to spend the time with them on the first few days of Chinese New Year.  The result, fantastic. Got to know our sons and daughter better, not that we are bad parents.  Just that we always have been spending time together, often while we were still busy with our work. I would not say that our work is demanding, but we have certain level of commitment. However, the commitment level for our children are the same too. I find that our sons are more open to communicate with us, when we are…
