Creative piece of work…

My friend, Leong HW drew me this… try and guess what it actually means!

My visit to Miri – cari makan

I visited the Hippo Land (viz. Miri!) from Aug 28th to Sept 3rd.


May I present to you the good food in Miri that one should really try!


The famed mee kolok (earmark of Sarawak) I tried in Miri unfortunately failed to satisfy my taste buds but I found the laksa here were quite savoury.


Hippo and his family unanimously voted for laksa sold at Sin Foh Café to be the best laksa in Miri. The Sin Foh laksa no doubt is tasty, the taste showed a lot of similarity with laksa from Peninsular, but my favourite would be the laksa sold by Nancy Stall, which is located in front of Imperial Mall.

My favorite Nancy Stall’s Laksa!

The beef noodle at Nancy Stall is quite famous too…

Another appetite-tempting food that I’d like to recommend is the “kuey chap” (粿杂) available at Hopoh Building for morning session only.

The non-halal kuey chap!

Maybe I’m under-exposed, but I find the dim sum served at Mega Hotel (4°23’47.76″N, 113°59’17.45″E) were of the best ones I’ve ever tried to date! And the most important fact is that the mouth-watering dim sum costs only RM3.80 per dish!


So, you all know what to look for if you happen to drop by Miri!


The following is happening every time I visit the site:-


*While walking, I’ll stop abruptly and then squat down*

Colleague: What are you trying to do?????

Me: Taking photos…


Don’t you think all these flowers are pictureresque?

Men & women at work!

Instead of having a discussion in the office comfortably, my colleagues (I had to follow, reluctantly) drove all the way to the site with issue to be ironed out and did brainstorming in the middle of a road with live traffic and under scorching sun…..

Will you?

Who the hell on earth will buy this book about him with RM111.90?????

I spot you, creativity!

Inside the glass bottle…

“I want to walk tall, believe in myself, have the courage to ask for what I want and need, and live a life that mattered. I want to wake up in the morning with a smile on my face and know that I am loved and that I belonged. I am desperate to feel worthy and I am hungry for the opportunity to live my fullest potential.” - modified from "The Dark Side of the Light Chasers" - Debbie Ford

Under the apple tree…

"If you are not spending all of your waking life in discontent, worry, anxiety, depression, despair, or consumed by other negative states; if you are able to enjoy simple things like listening to the sound of the rain or the wind; if you can see the beauty of clouds moving across the sky or be alone at times without feeling lonely or needing the mental stimulus of entertainment; if you find yourself treating a complete stranger with heartfelt kindness without wanting anything from him or her... it means that a space has opened up, no matter how briefly, in the otherwise incessant stream of thinking that is the human mind." - A New Earth, by Eckhart Tolle

Inspiring quotes!

If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other? (God in "Evan Almighthy")
“To love another person is to see the face of God.” ― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain
Aggie: "But what about the people who hurt you? Don't you ever want to make them suffer?" Norman Babcock: "Well, yeah, but what good would that do? You think just because there's bad people that there's no good ones either? I thought the same thing for a while. But there's always someone out there for you. Somewhere." - Paranorman
“You're only here for a short visit. Don't hurry, don't worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.” by Walter Hagen
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, body totally worn out and screaming "WOOOHOOOO what a ride!" - by anonymous
When you travel, it’s not like you take a part of each place away with you; rather, it’s as if you leave a part of yourself there, like a part of you forever belongs to that place – the time, the people, and the things you saw; and over time, it gets burned deeper into your soul - by anonymous
