Tsun Jin High School - Evolusion of a Multipurpose Complex

Yes once it was a play field, a play field of basketball courts and a football field. Now it is slowly transforming into a multipurpose complex where there will be more car parking space and an orchestra room at the lower levels and on the upper level there will be a volleyball court, basketball court, a multipurpose hall and a lecture theatre including a jogging track around the complex.

Loh Yee Mee, Air Panas, Setapak

This is one of my weekends favorite breakfast venture whenever I visit the wet market but this stall has shifted to Air Panas, Setapak from the nearby Sri Rampai wet market. It used to operate next to a pork stall in Sri Rampai.
Now they are housed in a fairly clean coffee shop called Eldon Food & Beverage Centre Restaurant along Jalan Air Jerneh ( GPS location: 3.1905,101.718378 ) . I noticed that there is another interesting stall in the coffee shop selling striking dishes (pork knuckles, etc etc), will venture in the near future.
My favourite Loh Yee Mee.
Vinegar to suit your taste bud and a lovely sambal belacan which is a must...

Rice Porridge @ Segambut, Kuala Lumpur

This is one of the rare porridge shops you can find in Kuala Lumpur. Teochew rice porridge in the olden days where usually provided by the Chinese bosses to their coolies as part parcel of employing workers. There are some shops in town selling Teochew porridges at an exorbitant price but this shop Restaurant Yu Yee in Segambut is quite reasonable. This meal cost me RM6.50 with a de-boned fried kambong fish, Loh egg, Loh pork spare parts and a bowl of rice porridge. This is a mini round about near the shop.

For the LoVe of Palm Smartphone

I first started using a Palm PDA on 27 Nov 2001 and it was a M100 model then updated to M130 on September 2002. On May 2004 I changed to Treo Handspring 270 and followed by a Treo 650 on 6 November 2006. After all these years of using Palm devices running on Palm operating system I was sort of used to it and was relying heavily on this small gadget in my daily work. From Treo Handspring onwards it was not only a PDA but it was also a smartphone. I quite like Treo 650 with the good battery talk time but only set back was its tiny weenie antenna.
I realized that Palm operating system PDA was running out of steam and is very slow in their launching of new products. And moreover, Palm was slowly shifting to Microsoft Windows Mobile operating system. I thought I was on a fix and went round asking for advice of converting all my data to Microsoft Windows system so that I will be able to enjoy and have more choices of smart phone in the near future. You can imagine the amount of data like contact and calendar I was carrying and cannot imagine to start afresh specially the contacts I have since 2001. Sometimes, I was also like a walking phone directory; friends would call me up for whom and who's phone number. Daniel the one who sold me the Palm Pro (running on Microsoft Windows obviously) told me that I got 2,000 odds contacts in my phone and said that it was pretty huge a number for any single phone user. By the way I just changed it on this day on 10 November 2008.
The only dislike was, I got to learn and get use to Microsoft operating system in my new hand phone. Hope I am not wrong in deciding to convert to Microsoft Windows and has to say sorry to Palm for changing the operating system after all these years (only 8 years love affair).

Morning tour to the Chinatown Wet Market, Chiangmai

On the second day we were supposed to pick our third ball for golf but we before arrival time we went roaming around in Chiangmai. The driver took us the the oldest temple in Old Chiangmai known as Wat Chiang Mun.
Then we went to Chinatown and had a quick walk around the market or they called the flower market. Live eels, crabs look good, bought some of these for scrubbing back. Stalls selling fried stuff.

After the market visit we went to Stardom a driving range with 9 holes golf course for a golf sale fair.
At the airport waiting for our friend, we saw a prominent politician emerged from the arrival hall and no other than Dr. Chua Soi Lek & friends carrying golf bags with them. This is how Thailand promotes their tourism, sending beautiful girls welcoming visitors at the arrival hall, bravo. How nice if we Malaysian can follow this way.
This pork soup stall which I visited the last trip in 2005 was closed and was told that the operator was away to Bangkok. Teresa Tang used to stay at the Hotel Mae Ping just opposite this stall and she used to patronize this stall. Will try again the next trip.

The Nest Bed & Breakfast - Chiangmai

The Nest B&B is located at Sirimangkalajam Soi 5, Suthep, Muang Chiangmai. It is near Lotus Pang Suan Kaew Hotel and Central Kad Suan Kaew. I find it very unique and a place just like home in Chiangmai. I would recommend to friends to stay here whenever they are in Chiangmai for holidays or business. The breakfast is simple but who cares, it helps to reserve your stomach for other food adventures outside the Nest as Chiangmai has got lots of food to try. We had our breakfast outside the house. Miss. Pam is the owner of this joint and she is such a helpful host.

Dinner at Galare,Chiangmai

We went to this place on a hilly part of Chiangmai for dinner overlooking a large lake and the place is full flowers with a open concept for dining. I could see the word “Galare” and Thai words on the cover of the red menu. Don’t know the name of this place. Maybe someone can help me.
The fried fish is lovely not oily. Yum yum....The fried pork cubes. Stir fried Asparagus. Tomyam of clear soup I love it. Green curry. Traditional Chaingmai dish known as Kontoke with pork sausage, fried fish skin, steamed sweet potaoes, salad, and egg plant. BBQ pork ribs.And not forgetting the Chang Beer.
