Raise The Black Monopod

I was taken aback by the sheer number of monopods fighting with joss sticks for space at this temple procession. The new crowdscape of raised cameras is an inevitable sign of the times, I suppose. For the uninitiated, a monopod is a one-legged telescopic camera stand, as opposed to the three-legged tripod.

Many of the dSLR video shooters were using monopods to get a higher P.O.V. or simply to get above the crowd. The trend will become even more prevalent as more new cameras come with remote control and monitoring via smart phones.

Stop! In the Name of Love

There is so much hate against love.

The mysterious vandalised heart shaped traffic light was never explained. I think it was a vandal masking the light. I saw them while driving at the Bukit Jalil/Sri Petaling intersection.

Wanton Act

You can't please everybody. Someone asked me what the noodles and kelondong drink looked like. Good thing I turned around and 'stole' or 'curi' a shot from the neighbouring table before we ordered.
I asked permission from the strangers though. The proximity of tables in this crowded restaurant means, we being first timers, could hear and cue in on what everyone were ordering. Restaurant 168 is non-halal.

Kelondong And Wontons

Kelondong And Wontons

We stumbled upon the best wantan (mee) soup this side of town by chance. The wontons include a big sui kow dumpling and the regular wontons had bite size prawns in it. Wonderful stuff. The noodles and char siew were buried underneath when I scooped the wontons and vegetables onto the 'kon lo' noodles plate.

How about the non-smiling curry laksa chef who's chewing gum non stop? As I was to find out later, Restaurant 168 is also famous for its curry laksa and curry noodles in addition to its prawn wonton noodles (wantan mee).

My long time friend Anna Har took me out for lunch and to do some street photography today. It is a meaningful and deeply appreciated gesture. Anna didn't want credit, at first.

I told her it may inspire other friends to volunteer. As I told Anna, it not only provided the needed physical exercise but the outing is also mentally therapeutic to be able to talk to a friend.
