As I maunder...

~ I love Kurmas ~

I ate a lot of kurmas the past 2 days.

They are so yummylicious and sweet. I like. My colleague bought it from Mekkah.

If you like dates, next time anyone you know go to Mekkah or Saudi Arabia, ask them you to get Ruthab Sukkari kormas. You can get these from Bin Dawood supermarkets.

~ Twitching Eyes ~

My eyes twitched both sides. Superstitions says that if your eyes twitched that means you will meet friends from afar and not seen for a long time. Voila! Banker, Paul and Gary called today. Co-incidence or is the superstition true?

~ Angel : New Eating Place in Bangsar ~

If you think eating in Bangsar Baru is expensive, I agree with you. Eating a simple dish of briyani rice with fried chicken and sirap rose in Nirwana Maju can blast your wallet.

Delphinus and I stumbled into a quiet cafe and bakery called Angel last week. It is at the same row with Nirwana Maju. There is only 2 customers and we didn't have high expectations.

However, I am glad to say that the food is pretty delicious and not expensive. They serve dishes like Spaghetti Aglio Olio with mushroom, Mushroom Bruschettas, Burgers, Rice with choices like Black pepper chicken/Honey Mayo Chicken and Nyonya Curry Laksa, ranging from RM 6 - 8. They also have dessert like chocolate fudge cake with ice cream which cost only RM5.50.

~ Movies ~

Cinta - a must watch movie. It is a story bout 5 types of love - Unggul, Romantis, Abadi, Sepenuh Jiwa and Tulus. In my humble opinion, it is a pretty good movie. It made me cry or it could be that I easily cry. You might somehow associate yourself to one of the 5 love stories.

Watch Blood Diamond even if you dislike Leonardo DiCaprio. And maybe, it will make you more aware when you buy diamonds. In America and those who can afford diamonds, it's bling bling. But out there in Africa, it's bling bang. People die, villages destroyed and children go into war.

~ Eat, eat and Eat ~

Lotsa dinners/lunch gathering whole of this month.

From Pulau Ketam to Bangsar Seafood, La La Chong, Cyberview Lodge Resort, Overseas Chinese Restaurant and Maju Palace.

My tummy is just gonna be fatter and my wallet thinner. But I can't resist Yee Sang.

~ Surech, U r de Man! ~

My climbing friend, Surech is in the news. He is the first Malaysian to climb Ama Dablam, which is a very difficult route – even more challenging than the ascent of Everest itself.

Hey Surech, we are really proud and amazed by you!

~ My dream ~

I want to join Amazing Race Asia. But can't think of a right partner. My biggest weakness - I can't read maps. But I will jump despite my fear of heights.

I wonder if my boss will approve my leave of 13 weeks. Hmm...

I'll be the best partner you ever had. You need someone cunning - a real rascal who can read maps, do stuff, drive a manual shift and f**k people over without it bothering my conscience.

I'm your man, KA!
