Had a bowl of curry mee.

Actually I came to know of JJ Cafe through a recommendation from a blog.

The price was also reasonable.

Moreover the environment is pretty serene.

You could see the bridge and beach from here.


JJ Cafe’s padprik is now No.1 since Gurney food court’s padprik fellas left.

a bowl of bee ko moey and

The Friday I Tried Out Alan Gurney Corner Burger


10.00 am – Had breakfast.

01.00 pm – Went to Mak Long for lunch with buddies. After 5 minutes into our meal, our special guest arrived.

King Scout Ryan Lee 😈

04.30 pm – Had a cup of mixed fruit yoghurt.


05.30 pm – While working on the PC yesterday, I noticed that the processor temperature was hovering around 75°C – 78°C, which was very bad actually. The processor’s heatsink and fan looked as dusty as Cecilia Cheung’s pubic hair.

And so I took it out to clean. What I failed to realize was that the health of the processor was already fragile to begin with, which was one of the main reasons for the poor temperature.

07.00 pm – And then the PC couldn’t start when I assembled it back. And so I went to my sifu in Midlands to have it diagnosed.

True enough, the processor was faulty. Replaced it with a new one.

07.30 pm – Wanted to draw money when I reached Gurney Plaza but then, the ATM machines were nowhere to be seen. Damn you CIMB!

08.00 pm – Had dinner at Gurney’s food court.

The price of a plate of nasi padprik ayam and

a plate of nasi kunyit ayam

now costs a whopping RM11. It used to be RM4.50 each.

08.30 pm – Being the out of control person that I am, I bought a chocolate chip cream bun and

a coconut blueberry bun from bread history. I wanted chicken floss but too bad it was already sold out.

09.00 pm – Watched Chocolate Fury with my buddies. Anthony and I were laughing our asses out as we caught ‘tak logik’ parts throughout the movie.

11.00 pm – Went for a short drinking session

with these fellas.

All night long, Michelle couldn’t stop farting.

01.30 am – Went to Gurney’s roundabout to try out

Alan’s Gurney Corner

Burger. Still, I prefer Jelutong’s post office burger. Their portioning is much more than Alan’s.

02.30 am – zzzzzzZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzz

The Monday Where Jason Joined Us For Hiking


08.30 am – Woke up.

09.00 am – After John showered and we walked down to Mandarin Cafe for breakfast.

I made a mistake by ordering 2 LARGE plates.


09.30 am – Grocerying in Tesco.

Sesame oil for oil pulling, peanut butter for breakfast and strawberries… hmm… strawberries are a first.

I have tried almost every type of shampoo before, from Clear to Pantene to Sunsilk but none seemed to work as well as Sebamed’s anti dandruff. Although Nizoral’s the best, it’s pretty small in quantity and pricey. So, Sebamed it is.

10.30 am – Went for a haircut.

11.00 am – Showered.

11.30 am – Checked mails. Read RPK’s That Reminds Me, TheStar.

Spain kicked Germany’s ass to win Euro 2008.

12.00 pm – Updated famouschris.

01.00 pm – Lunch.

The usual economy dishes from the economy rice shop ..

.. and kiam chai boey from the new chicken rice shop.

02.00 pm – Continued updating famouschris.

Nescafed while having fun.

03.00 pm – Found out about AirAsia’s Rm 0.05 promotion. Found a few good dates for traveling. Researched about another alternative destination, Manila, Philippines.

05.00 pm – Napped.

06.00 pm – Hiking.

I took some time to warm up. The guys were about 5 minutes ahead. Started to hike up at

Caught up with them but was pretty tired by then.

Stayed with Jason for awhile as it was his first time in a long time.

Continued on with him behind.

Caught up with Daryl and Shawn at 46.

Reached the yellow sign board at about

As we were about to go down, Jason appeared.

After resting for awhile, we continued down and we saw a baby snake.

Reached the bottom.

08.00 pm – Gurney Plaza’s food court.

Ordered from our usual favourite stall.

The 3 of us had the same ..

.. nasi padprik ayam.

09.00 pm – Visited my cousin’s gym. Enquired about the fees and stuff like that. Although the gym that I have been going to for the past 2 years is conveniently located near my place, they have no proper instructors to guide you. All this while, I have been working out based on the videos and articles I see on the internet. It’s actually kinda hard when you have questions and don’t know how to get them answered.

And during Chinese New Year, my cousin, Shane did mention to me about the full time instructors and the products of his gym which includes Mr Penang, Mr Penang Junior, Celebrity Fitness instructors, etc. So I thought, why not give it a try. It should be better as the instructors are there in person to help you out if you have any questions. Moreover, it’s cheap at RM50 monthly and a lifetime membership of RM60, which is awesome as you can stop and come back years later.

09.30 pm – Showered. Rested.

Plastered 3 of these onto

the sink,

the wall near the floor and

the kitchen.

12.00 am – Did another site for bro’s friends.

02.00 am – Sleep.
