11.53 am – Wandered around the streets of Taipei with my ‘roommate’ (out of 8 of us Anthony and I were the only 2 having rooms of our own while the others were 2 in a room) and found an authentic looking Taiwanese shop.

From the conversation we had, I think they served wan than mee.

Hi roomie!

The wan than mee that I didn’t like. Tasted so bland.

Meatballs and lu rou fan for my roomie.

Stumbled across one of the many bubble milk tea stalls and bought myself a cup.

~yum~

12.17 pm – Walked around for awhile before returning to our hotel.

01.30 pm – Took a shit, washed up and went down to do a little bit of research by the computer in the lobby.

02.09 pm – The guys had lunch.

So did I.

Broccoli and

some meat soup for lunch.

~yum~

Super delicious latte from 7 Eleven. No idea what the brand is though. Can’t read Mandarin. =(

02.37 pm – In Ximen MRT.

Waited for the train from the dark green line.

02.44 pm – Clean and bright. Oh how I miss Taipei. =(

The very big CKS Memorial Hall MRT station.

02.54 pm – Ta da! Arrived at the National Concert Hall in Liberty Square.

The National Theater, directly opposite the National Concert Hall, in the distance.

The very big west gate directly facing CKS Memorial Hall.

Cheerleading practice. Makes sense to do it here as there is so much space.

Cheang Kai-shek Memorial Hall.

Walked through the souvenir stalls.

Had fun by the entrance.

The view from the top.

The bronze statue of CKS gracing the entrance.

The grand ceiling.

The soldier by the entrance.

Little did we know, the exhibition halls were actually underground!

Chinese calligraphy. Did you know the Chinese invented paper and ink? By the way, I Chinese roots but culturally I’m 100% Malaysian. ^.^

The Thursday I Had Indo Mie For Breakfast After A Long Hiatus

8,150 views

08.30 am – The PC arrived.

09.00 am – And this is how I cook Indo Mie.

(I’ve ALWAYS prefered Indo Mie to Maggi Mee)

Had eggs boiled by the side while preparing.

First, you bring the water to a boil.

While the pot normal temperatured water gets heated up, you bring out the packed sauces and oil

and squeeze them out onto the plate.

Once the pot of water starts boiling, you throw the noodles in.

After 5 short minutes, you tapis the water from noodles

and throw them onto the plate where you’ve already squeezed out the sauces.

Next, stir and stir.

Add some side dishes (in my case, eggs) and finally, you’re done. ~yum

I need a servant 👿

09.30 am – Opened up the new box of 50 tea bags

to make myself a jug of green tea.

10.00 am – Started preparing the files needed by the sick PC before formatting.

Phase 1 : Prepare

Step 1.01 : Open up the PC

and check out the insides.

Step 1.02 : Load the necessary applications from the healthy PC

into the pendrive. Loaded some songs as well.

Step 1.03 : Got ready the CDs.

Step 1.04 : Powered on the sick PC and loaded songs from the pendrive. (So that I feel happier while working)

Step 1.05 : Check out what programs the sick PC uses. This is to help you determine the drivers needed by some of the sick PC’s hardware.

Step 1.06 : Checked out the motherboard version.

Step 1.07 : Backed up files from the Desktop

and My Documents into

another drive.

Step 1.08 : Searched for the drivers online

downloaded

and moved them into the USB pendrive.

End of phase 1.

01.00 pm – Lunch break!

Went to Church Street’s Kafeteria dan Hotel Eng Loh for a plate of

chicken rice. ~yum

Double chicken rice chilli. ~yum

02.30 pm – Came back and saw Poslaju’s sorry note. ~damn. Now I’ll have to go to town again to collect the RAM stick.

03.00 pm – Phase 2 : Rebuild

Step 2.01 : Formatted C/ drive and

installed a fresh copy of Windows XP Performance Edition.

07.00 pm – Went to Poslaju’s Penang office in Victoria Street

to collect the missed parcel.

07.30 pm – Wanted to eat the Chinese bawang-lebih-burger cooked by an uncle and his family in a van in Tanjung Bungah but too bad it wasn’t open today.

And so we went to Seahorse’s lok lok instead.

We had hair core,

jiew hu eng chai,

Taiwan sosej,

virgin hums,

siputs,

ohs

and fried tomyam maggi.

09.00 pm – Opened up the envelop and stuck this piece of 512 DDR RAM memory stick into the PC’s motherboard.
