Nasi Lemak Mambau

Filed under: Just Chilling! — thesweettalker @ 6:10 pm

My mama and the rest of this side of family, and some of my uncles and aunties too, just love having breakfast at Nasi Lemak* Mambau. So, whenever I am around, I kind of have to tag along. And everytime we, just the family, come here (usually on Sunday morning), we will ask for…

“Braderrrrr, nasi lemak* lima! Kasik ayam goreng sama sambal sotong**! Lepas tu kasik teh tarik*** empat, milo suam satu!”

I don’t know why people keep saying that the restaurant serves the best nasi lemak* in town and that people keep pouring in just to have it! But to me, I just can’t find the taste up to my delight! Or maybe, nasi lemak* is just not my cup of tea! But still I urge you to try it out! Who knows, you might like it like my family do! You can find this restaurant on your way to Port Dickson as you head from Seremban town. You’ll reach a small town called Mambau. When you get there, ask anyone around, I bet he can show you where the place is as it is so well-known in that area. And if you know Nabil the Raja Lawak, well, he used to work here as a waiter before he became famous.

* Nasi lemak = Coconut rice

** Sambal sotong = Cuttlefish in chili paste

*** Teh tarik = Teh tarik omputeh cakap apa aaaaaaaaa? Tea with milk kutttt

Journey To The Center Of The Earth

Filed under: I've Got The Tickets! — thesweettalker @ 12:33 pm

Not my journey!

It’s theirs!!!

Well, it’s just a movie! The 3-D movie was based on a classic 1864 science fiction novel by Jules Verne, about a scientist in a quest to find his missing brother. Joined by his nephew and a mountain guide, the three soon discover a fantastic and dangerous world at the center of the earth!

Hubby, lil’ bro Abshor and I went to TGV, Jaya Jusco, Seremban last to night to catch this movie. Quite frustrating that the movie was a little bit blurry as it was shown in 2-D and our seats were 4 rows from the front! If only we had watched it in 3-D at IMAX Kuala Lumpur (yeah, we should have!!), it would have been more satisfying. *Sighhhh…*

Today

Filed under: Nothing Personal — thesweettalker @ 9:17 pm

Today, some people were going off and somebody was coming home.

These two lovebirds were going to Kuching, Sarawak for a vacation. And I was there at the Low Cost Carrier Terminal Malaysia (LCCT), Sepang, this morning to see them off.

And later in the evening, my parents and I took the guy in white T-shirt back to our house in Puchong! Welcome home, lil’ bro!

Somebody Is Over The Moon

Filed under: Just Chilling! — thesweettalker @ 9:12 am

I had a conversation with Yusniza through Yahoo Messenger a few days before I flew to Kuala Lumpur. The conversation went something like this… (JIMY denotes myself).

JIMY: Hey Yus, I’m coming back to KL this Saturday and will be around for a week.

US: Hey you, good! Lets meet up. Make sure this time we really meet up!

JIMY: Is Tuesday fine with you?

YUS: Sounds fine to me.

JIMY: Great! I’ll give you a call when I reach KL.

YUS: I still use the same old number.

JIMY: Me too.

YUS: I have something to tell you but let’s save it for our meet up. It’s gonna be a surprise!!

JIMY: (Suspense nih…) Ok, that can wait! You need not tell me now.

The rest of the conversation were quite personal and unimportant so, there’s no need for you to know.

As I was tide up with a few things at my mama’s place in Seremban, the Tuesday plan was cancelled. So, we met up on Thursday (yesterday) instead. When I reached The Curve, Mutiara Damansara, KL, she was already there waiting for me and she looked like she’s having a bloated tummy! But why was she smiling so widely? The first thing she said to me was “Hey you… I am 4 months pregnant!” Whooooaaa lady, pregnant, really? I was stunned for a moment but later, I was like a dog with two tails when she confirmed it again. Whatta surprising news! And this’s gonna be her first born child!

She had not disclosed her pregnancy to me all this while just because she had been waiting for the right time to reveal it me. Apala Yus nih…  I was so happy to see her standing there, in front of me, grinning from ear to ear, looking more radiant than ever! For something wonderful that has happened to her, she’s soooo over the moon!

We had some drinks at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. and Yus gave me a lovely 24 carat gold plated miniature plate which she got it while she was in Japan few months back. She just couldn’t stop grinning, you know! I couldn’t stop grinning either! As were catching up with each other, some old friend whom we knew from the horse ranch, Along, happened to pass us by.

   

    

Later, we had dinner downstairs, at Sakae Sushi, as Yus was craving for some Japanese food! It was nice to see her again, happy and glowing. Wishing her all the best in paving her way to motherhood.
