I had the opportunity to have breakfast at Little Melaka @ Alamesra, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. There were basically only 3 breakfast set on the menu (the buffet was not ready yet) with complimentary coffee/tea ‘O’:
- Nasi Lemak (steamed (coconut milk) rice, sambal, anchovies, peanuts, boiled egg (halved) and cucumber slices) : RM5-00
- Mee Hoon/Kuey Teow/Mee : RM5-00
- American Breakfast (Sausage, Egg, Baked Beans and Toasts) : RM6-00 Continue reading
My wife is an on and off gardener. Only the hardiest plants survive in our small front and backyard garden, eg, the coconut tree, palm tree, mango tree and some low maintenance flowers. But she loves the green, even if they are mere weeds or lalang. Our mango tree, planted in 2008, still hasn’t grace us with any fruit but we love it for providing us with a backyard shade. Someone advised us to chop it down and plant a ‘better’ mango tree, but she couldn’t. When she sees a tree being unnecessarily chopped down, she would start reminding our kids about the importance of plants for our environment. Our little garden is a mess, but it’s cooling. And many a sunny day that my kids have played in the afternoon near to the trees and not feel the heat.
In my last posting, I wrote about the plants that my wife purchased at May Nursery. To ensure a better life for the new plants and to provide better nourishment for our ‘senior’ plants (especially the mango tree), she has decided to try out the coffee grounds provided for free by Starbucks. I think she read about it from Starbucks brochure ‘Grounds For Your Garden’. Continue reading
They make comment like “why kick out one unarmed Aussie lawmaker and not take immediate action to shoot and kill 100 Filipinos armed intruders.” extemporaneously, without bothering to find out the crux of the matter. They all know the weaselling and lying Aussie came here to help his buddy Anwar Ibrahim to give this country a bad name and can do more harm than the 100 armed men which incident should be handled with great care.
These **holes think they are being clever. They think the security force should just shoot and kill the armed intruders without first giving them a chance to withdraw peacefully and to return to their homeland. Continue reading
Remember the LEGO Ideas Book that I mentioned last week? Well, we have managed to complete a couple of project so far and today I’m going to reveal the first one here. This project is called ‘Trapdoor’ and can be found on page 117 in the LEGO Ideas Book. It was quite easy compared to the others in the book and since we have a lot of LEGO Castle bricks, we were able to complete the project without worrying about whether we had enough bricks to do it.
My son and I (5% contribution ) took about 45 minutes to complete the project. Though, it looks easy, still without the instruction, we needed to be extra creative to create the ‘Trapdoor’ LEGO project. Yup, I forgot to mention in my earlier posting that LEGO Ideas Book does not provide the instructions for creating the LEGO models. They just throw in a few pictures and little information, and we need to use our creativity to complete the project. That’s why they named the book LEGO Ideas Book, I guess – they just give you ideas not the tips on how to do it. Continue reading
