Lala or Clams Fried With Vermecelli

He correctly noted that the original image of Lala or clams fried with bee hoon or vermicelli from the Asus phone (on Facebook) could do with more DOF or depth of field. It was his polite and tactful way of saying it was not perfectly focused. Nice guy. :-)

I looked at the image back home on a big screen and try to figure out what went wrong. We sat at a table at edge of the restaurant, where there was too much sun spilling in. While the free lighting was appreciated, it also meant one thing.

Love Is Blue - Nasi Kerabu at Nasi Kukus Kak Teh

One will never find it without modern day navigation aids such as Waze or Google Maps.

I ordered Nasi Kerabu or Kelantanese blue rice and a piece of fragrant spice marinated fried chicken thigh.

Had to be very alert and quick to stop the butcher wannabe at the kitchen from chopping and splintering the bones into a thousand pieces.

IOI City Mall, Putrajaya - Part 14

I went to the higher floor on IOI City Mall where all those so-called IT lifestyle stores are located. Wanted to get a SD card reader for my iPad 2. I had one but misplaced it. Went back to the ground floor for Apple Machines. The floor staff don't seem to know their own stock situation and rummaged the rack helplessly, I told them specifically that is is for an older iPad 2, they dont listen and wasted time hunting down a device with a newer and incompatible lightning pod (for RM 133).

Kampung Hakka Mantin - Part 10

I like the Kampung Hakka exploration in that it is a journey of surprises and discoveries. No guides, no preconceived notions. Stumbled upon this Chinese chess board engraved on a stone table. The players kept all the chess pieces but left two cigarette packs behind. These are signs of life but they are always indirect. mysterious or baffling.

Kampung Hakka Mantin - Part 8

But apparently not. Almost every house has a Taoist symbol at the door or front entrance that repudiates the theory.

A small altar dedicated to the Chinese Ti Kong or the Jade Emperor God can be seen everywhere.. It is seen here as a metal fixture on the wall to the extreme right of the pic. The bright red altars have all faded like the memories of the generations who lived here.
