HEAVY LOADED SUGAR PAST TIME



For a dollar and eighty cents only - you can buy sweet time :) and I'm talking RM1.80 equivalent (0.65$)

This place we used to call *chiew kah* which translates *under the tree* sells the best Klang Cendol ever / Nevertheless, the best place to dine a super icy sweet bowl of cendol. Now if you do not know what cendol is? Try it ! - or you may want to click on the link below :)

Still - I'm missing my hometown back in KL -

p.s.
In KL - *under the tree* literally means under the tree yes, you serve your food under the tree openly and table-less for this particular cendol vendor - my favourite hangouts with my younger brother -

VALENTIN CARRON




Had some time to go through some images I've collected from time to time - thought I'd post this up /

10.30am settled soho san li tun (pick ugly stones! sigh just make do with some not so bad looking ones. mr seah will shake his head and say 'nevermind' i think!)
12noon lunch w 5 uncles (ye nan cuisine) 3rd level chaowai
1pm ok its soho zgc's turn (pick materials. selections are not so bad. anyway zgc's colour scheme is red white black. all primary colour. easy!)

HI SATURDAY

CSS - MUSIC IS MY HOT, HOT SEX
Despite their amateur looking video, i found this song very catchy. Put this on the ipod loud, wear those earphone, stop listening to the colleagues, off to do my work, in my own world.



THE WHITEST BOY ALIVE - GOLDEN CAGE

Music of the month - by the colleagues' influence.


INSPIRATIONAL








*ga tau mo nulis apa

Will post 2 weeks ago's PEK trip soon.

CSS

Music of the week: CSS - Let's Make Love and Listen to Death Above

Been playing this on the ipod over and over again these 2 days in the office. Somehow it helps me concentrate, focusing on finishing my ZCG signage package. 




It's been extremely hectic lately, with the old and new soho china projects on hand, work trip to PEK, and another new baby in Dubai. All the best!

It's 3am, just got back from work, suffering insomnia.
