Charise - Our New Dutch Shepherd

Jun 22, 2008

We have booked our new Dutch Shepherd with Al few months ago. Her name is Charise. Nice name, right? This was her 3 weeks old picture.

Charise @ 4 months old. I was shocked when BB showed me this picture. I kind of rejected with her ugly look, especially her ears. Haha....

Al sent BB the latest outdoor clip of her running in the field. She looks aggressive & strong huh.

Tok Su Gong Korea Restaurant

Jun 21, 2008

We had our dinner at Tok Su Gong Restaurant last night. Ever since the first time my FIL brought us there, we have fell in love with this Korean cuisine. So we decided to visit there for the second time.

As usual, we were served with few side dishes. Upon finished it, you may request for the second plate & it is non-chargeable. Great isn't it?
I particularly like this Steamed Egg on Stone Pot.
This is the stove. Luckily we do not need to cook the meat. The waitress did a good job. Green Chili Cuts & Garlic. They goes along with the lettuce, cucumber, carrot & of course the BBQ meat.Want a bite?After the main course, we were served with the Korea's Barley Tea, a plate of snack (I love it very much) & few slices of watermelon. Upon paying your bill, the waitress also rewarded us with few pieces of Korea's chewing gum & Ginseng candies.

Manekineko Japanese Restaurant @ Melaka Raya

Jun 13, 2008

We went for Japanese food again for our dinner. Haha.... my beloved manager, Bern is sure to complain again. We just addicted to Japanese cuisine.

This place is just directly opposite Izakaya Kushi Masa. Upon entered into the restaurant, we only noticed a table of Japanese men there. So we told ourselves that the food served must be quite authentic & nice, else we won't be seeing these people around.

They use the fortune cat as the signboard so that they could attract more customers to their restaurant.
Fortune cat is found in most of their setting.
The layout of the restaurant.
Only 5 thin slices of Shake Sashimi.
How can we miss Hiyayakko for our meal. I'm going to try this dish one day.
4 pcs of Kaki Furai (Breaded & Deep Fried Oysters). The oyster is fresh & they managed to fry it just nice without drying the juicy oysters.
2 tiny pieces of Saba Shioyaki (Grilled Mackeral).
Soft Shell Crab Hand Roll. If the chef can add more vinegar & mayonnaise, it will taste even nicer.
Here is the bill. Is your eyes popping out? Well, Hubby B & I concluded that the price charged by the restaurant is expensive. However, the food served is quite authentic & yummy.

Dungun & Kuala Terengganu 31st May - 1st June, 08

Jun 2, 2008

It was drizzling when we were driving to meet the rest of the friends at Gombak Toll. I never been to Batu Cave & the huge golden color statue attracted me. It took us 4 hours to reach Dungun. So we arrived at Liang Hock's parents house about 630pm. Their house is nice. They have a Nitendo Wii room. We fell in love with Wii. Hehe... His mum prepared a scrumptious dinner for us. We were served with crabs, squibs, prawns, fish, pork, vegetables, etc. After a few round of the Wii games, I decided to have an early night. BB & his buddies enjoyed gambling & drinking at the garden.

Before we left to Pulau Tenggol, we had another delicious meal from Liang Hock's mum. She cooked their local specialty, Nasi Minyak for our breakfast. We even packed it for our lunch.
We rent a speed boat to Pulau Tenggol. Hubby & I had an exciting 30 minutes journey there. Why? Because we were sitting at the front seat of the boat. No choice lor. The rest are with their kids, so we gotta sacrifice ourselves. However, it was really fun. Since I can't swim, I have stayed at the beach with Chew's daughter & wife & Siew Fen too. However, I did go for a not so far 'snorkeling' with BB too. The gals are enjoying themselves.

I had a mild argument with BB. When the boat man rode us to the a 15ft deep sea, I managed to dip into the sea by holding the bar. Hey I could see the sea world. Actually I was quite proud of myself as this was my first step to take such a big courage to do so. I thought BB will give me some word of encouragement. Who knows he kept on teasing me "kiasi" (coward)! I felt so irritated & I totally shut myself off from him. Due to self-esteem problem, I decided not to hold him while on our way back with the boatman. It was rather scary as the boat was quite bumpy. Anyway, I made it throughout the journey. ;-P

Everyone slept early during the night! Poor Hubby & Chew were not able to drink that night.

The next morning, we departed to Kuala Terengganu. It was about 1.5 hours journey. We had a short visit to Crystal Mosque as the weather was super hot. Nothing fancy but we think it should look much more beautiful at night.
Then we went to this Perkampungan Keropok Lekor at Lesong (Fish Sausages Village). It a village where you could see many stalls selling this Fish Sausage. Surprisingly, all the stalls are full with customers. Liang Hock told us that the local Chinese named it as "Kao Sai" (dog shit). Er....... actually it looks quite like it. :-) We bought a frozen pack home to try.
Then we went to their local market. They eat turtle eggs. Isn't it cruel?
This is the boiled one.And this is the raw one. Oh disgusting! I better leave the stall!

We went to a local restaurant for lunch. Liang Hock's cousin ordered so much food for us. As it is the squib season now, we definitely can't resist this grilled squib!Their Rojak Ayam. Something special & it tastes good.
He got stung by the sea mites while snorkeling. I had few on my legs but it weren't a serious one.

Overall, the trip was a good one. We both had a mild sunburn.
