A Malaysia foodie trail challenge

If you’ve not heard, Malaysians totally love their food so much by the amount of meals they gobble in a day. Sometimes we got to have breakfast, after breakfast, lunch, tea, dinner and even supper.

And I only recall eating this much in Penang, when my family decided to hunt for the known foodie spots like the Sisters fried koay teow, Acheh street banana leaf, Penang road chendol and much more.

Until I found this foodie trail infographic on iMoney, I feel I’ve got much more food to cover in my own country. *gasp* 0.0

By the way, I’m a little stuck in thought when looking at the infographic again because there’s this great nasi dagang at Damansara Uptown, but it’s apparently from Kelantan.

So, is nasi dagang from Kelantan or Terengganu?

Ooh…ooh..and it’s interesting to note apparently driving is less miles compared to flying. Wha? o.0 I’m baffled. LOL!

Could it be age?

The Lunar New Year for me hasn’t been all that kind. The 1st day started with a slight temperature, slowly developing into a sore throat and now with some phlegm to be dealt with.┬áSo I suppose I had to really take a holiday on this holiday.

Maybe it’s age

When we were kids, we couldn’t help to be fascinated with simple tricks like “pop-pop”. However, as soon we became braver (and probably more crazy), cracking pop-pop with our bare hands then wanting to set off bigger and louder fireworks to lighting a TNT-like firecracker and tossing it as though it was an explosive… I did say crazy.

Alas, maybe it be age which has left me thinking now on most nights during Chinese New Year, “which crazy fellow is setting off fireworks which are overly loud (because they are nearby) at the hours some sick people need to go to bed”.

Sigh. I guess being ill during a festive season definitely pulls down your spirits in light of all the joy and laughter spreaded around.

Or, is it really just the age.

Yowamushi Pedal anime for the cyclist in you

At first I thought this was anime was only going to be ‘meh’ because it’s the first time I’ve ever heard of an anime with the storyline revolving around cycling. More so when the trend now is everyone seems to be wanting to get on the cycling scene.

However, after watching Episode 1, I’m now already onto Episode 14! Following the story of an unlikely high school boy named Onoda Sakamichi, who was more otaku slowly becoming a more competitive and driven person with a goal to achieve.

Though the characters and actions performed in the anime maybe fictional, I like how they’re using this anime as a medium to educate the audience like me on cycling.

P.S.: If cycling isn’t your sport but swimming is, there is an anime for that too. :P

Creative spurt

Designers can very emotional beings when it came creativity. At times, we’d think of the weirdest out of the box ideas which may seem ridiculous to comprehend. Others, our mind will just be moving 2 steps ahead of our body.

Turning a paper bag into a box

While given the task today to wrap a cousin’s birthday present, the idea of turning a paper bag into a box jumped at me. And I was confirming with myself that a paper bag would be very suitable even, because the materials used for a paper bag would normally be good quality paper and it’s a little thick.

Though the box wasn’t perfect, with folded edges visible, I was still happy with the outcome and the fact I managed to turn a paper bag into a box for a present.

Ah, I do miss these creative spurts.
