Don’t Miss It!

Just make sure you do not miss The Mummy: Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor.

A ruthless Emperor of China (Jet Li) who was cursed and put to sleep for thousands of years by a Chinese witch Zi Juan (Michelle Yeoh), awakens only to find himself in the 20th Century. However, the immortal Emperor together with his cursed terra cotta army wanted to take over the entire world but somehow his evil plot is thwarted by the O’Connells – Rick O’Connell (Brendan Fraser), his wife Evelyn (Maria Bello), his son Alex (Luke Ford) and his brother Jonathan (John Hannah). With the help of the Chinese witch’s daughter Lin (Isabella Leong), they fight and destroy the Emperor.  

I kind of love the way the beginning of the story and the ending battle scene were done. So dramatic.

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

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.
