Was browsing some old photos and I stumble upon these photo, which create this post.
I hate wasting money buying something I don't need. But sometimes I end up buying the random thing that I don't really need at all.
Here's a Pyramid Cheese Grater with Mr Tofu. Just to show you how TINY it is.
The thing is, I bought it because it so cute, and the color reminds me of My TOFU.
I was AMAZE , I just cant wait to bring my cheese grater out and buy some cheese from Tesco and shamelessly shred those cheese into my mouth, LIVE.
Who's your god now?
Ok, it didnt happen. now my Cheese grater is in my cupboard and I don't bother using them anymore. It's kinda small and shredding a cheese never been so troublesome.
I bought them during sales.
It was 4pounds, I bought it for 3.20pounds, which I think it was the best purchase of all. Until I walk into Wilkinson recently and found a bigger and user friendly cheese grater for 3 pounds only.
The next one would be a mixer bowl. Which I bought from tesco for 6pounds. It comes with a Spatula and scone mixer.
Ohh so pweety! Why did I buy this again?
Photographing? Yes yes, look how pretty they turn out #wtf.
Have I bake the scone yet? hahahaha, no
I love Sugar, I need sugar for my tea and coffee and I take them almost everyday.
To show people how much I take my usage of SUGAR seriously, I bought a Sugar Jar to store them. Finally, there's something worth paying for.
Lastly, My small little pink knife from Kitchen Craft.
The best knife cause serve me well. It comes with sheath. Bringing out with me has never been a problem. Stabbing people now has become convenient. Now why am I here again.
Ok that's all for today post. I'm pretty tired now since I start my Internship. I'll blog more often now, because I need a life.

Who knows that one year later around this time, I was summoned back to the beautiful island again? Except this time it was a work trip.
One of the reasons I always choose window seat.
First day was free and easy. We checked into Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort (such luxurious 5-star treatment!) which was located uphill around 5-minutes drive away from Patong town.
A quiet and secluded resort. It offers a private beach which in my opinion is way better than what Patong beach has to offer, unless you prefer a tourist-crowded area with vendors passing by selling you stuff every 10 minutes. My only complaint is the quality of food which was far from 5-star expectation.
We were exhausted after that early flight. Didn’t want to explore the town before we could get any rest so decided to pay 600 Baht for the breakfast buffet (which is normally served free to the hotel guests wtf). Took as much as possible even though our appetite was only THAT big. Teehee.
Every guest including us were presented a welcoming ornament while being ushered to the lobby.
Our room was impeccably clean and spacious.
A balcony facing the forest and the tennis court.
See-through bathroom! LOL. No bathtub though which kinda disappointed me :(
Off to Patong town after my beauty nap! Shuttle van is available every 30 minute for 2-way journey back and forth from Le Meridien and Patong town (with charges of 70 Baht per head if I’m not mistaken). We wanted to follow our own timing so decided to pay a little extra for the hotel chauffeur (240 Baht for round trip).
Randomly picked a restaurant that was the least tourist-targeted looking along Patong beach in order to fulfil my Tom Yam craving! Food might be cheap at other parts of Thailand but never in Phuket. One coconut costs 80 Baht T_T
When in Thailand, must eat pancake!
Chocolate banana is the best.
A lovely sunny day for beach walk.
Walked all the way to Jungceylon, a big shopping mall at Patong and Bangla Road. No there’s no bangla there. It’s the name of a famous street at Patong where all the night bars are located. Can easily find strip dance or Ping Pong shows here!
Nah we didn’t go for any of that. Wasn’t on a vacation remember? Long schedule ahead the next day :/
More Thai food for dinner.
Mandatory Thailand-made beer.
On the following day, breakfast by the pool. TBH I enjoy having meals outdoor especially when there’s great view (but kinda sad la can’t do it with my boy cause he complains about sweating all the time FML). Wouldn’t want to confine myself to the air-conditioned room 24/7.
Huge swimming pool right before the private beach.
Unlike Patong beach that rents their beach chairs for 100 Baht, here you get countless of them available FOC.
The weather wasn’t so good that day. First it was gloomy, then it started drizzling. I couldn’t get enough of the sun! Pfft.
Anyway do consider Le Meridien if you’ve got the budget. The private beach is definitely a place worth visiting if you’re seeking for serenity! :)

Last Saturday, I woke up to a pleasant morning, looked at my handphone and bounced up of the bed when I saw, 7 AM! "OMIGOSH!!! I overslept!!!". I just grab something to wear and rush off. I didn't have time to set my hair and put on some make up. Barefaced, with a sleepy head, where am I heading to?
MAMEE FACTORY VISIT!
A group of 50 bloggers were invited for a Mamee Melaka
factory visit. Our meet-up point is at Mamee Double-Decker USJ factory. Thankfully, I was quite familiar with that area, as our journey was badly delayed due to some bloggers who lost their way that morning. It has been 10 years since I join for a factory visit, and at the same time feeling extremely enthusiastic! My last trip with such a huge group was with My Selangor Story 2010
(Oh my, how fast time passed, it has been 4 years already!)
I can't believe I actually enjoyed the 2-3 hours bus ride from KL to Melaka. Hehe.. our bus had this high tech TV screen thing, and we were being played the Fast and Furious films throughout the journey. I was really occupied by the movies. HAHAHA...
Here's our plan for the day:-
At about 11 o'clock, I think (I was really into the Fast and Furious films, I lost track of time), we arrived at Mamee Melaka! The sun was really hot, and just as I hopped down from the bus, we were greeted and welcome by the Mamee Melaka's staffs. I feel so sorry for them, because our journey delayed and they all must have waited for us for so long!
So the Mamee Chef Day Out
has officially begun! No time was being wasted. We kick-started our programme for the day by taking group photographs of us! Here's the enthusiastic Ms. Soong Sham Mee, guiding us towards our photography area.
It was really bright and sunny, and it took us some time to position ourselves properly to fit us all in the camera. HAHA.. the Mamee guys were so funny, they never fail to make us laugh. It was fun under the sun, definitely. I took these photos of them because they are unable to be in the group photo with us all. This way, nobody gets forgotten ya!
I dare to bet all my properties (fuhyoh) that nobody in Malaysia doesn't know who/what is Mamee. I've always have this picture of Mamee in my heart, whenever I think of it.
Mamee Double-Decker's latest highlight was on the Mamee Chef instant noodles. Did you know that Mamee Chef instant noodles are being purchased by 4.2 million household buyers in Peninsular Malaysia alone?
Have you tried the Mamee Chef noodles?
I'm not a fan of instant noodles. I'm being honest here. Everybody who knew me knows that I enjoyed cooking instant noodles, but I will throw away the noodles, unfinished. Why? I'm not a wasteful person, but instant noodles always make me feel "jelak" after a couple of bites.
Because of that, I never buy instant noodles. My first experience with Mamee Chef was from the goodie bag which I had from #NuffnangIs007 Birthday Bash. It was raining one evening, and I had nothing to eat for dinner. So I took the Mamee Chef instant noodle 'perisa' Curry Laksa, and poured hot water into it.
It was love at first bite.
I finished all of the instant cup noodle, within a month. I even ate my husband's cup noodle. He have not realized it yet. HAHAHAHAHAH..Shhh please keep this secret for me ya!
Gosh, my blog post derailed with my Mamee Chef love story. Ok now, let's get back to our event. Kids! I wish I was 8 years old weh! Kids were so happy. I mean, I feel happy too...but I'm too old to show my happiness. All I could do, was watch their laughter and smiles. *sigh~* How envious I was, I haven't had any opportunity to visit any factories when I was a kid. There's no such thing like factory visit during those days!
We were introduced on Mamee Double-Decker's humble beginnings until today, where Mamee Double-Decker has established its name into one of the food and beverage giants in Malaysia. Then, we were given a LIVE performance of 'La Mien' or "pulled noodle" which was originated from China. It was said that La Mien was the perfect noodle type as the noodles were hand pulled, and exhibit a beautiful 'noodly' texture. Mamee Chef had incorporated the 'La Mien' or in Malay language, called "Mi Tarik" technique into making their noodles.
I didn't have a high tech camera with me. All my photos were captured using my loyal iPhone 5. I managed to record a very short Instagram Video of the process. I hope this is able to give you, readers a picture on how "La Mien" was made. From the video you can see a long dough, and then the lady was like dancing with the dough, and suddenly noodle is formed. It must be some kind of sorcery it is! AHAHAH...
The performance, has really captivated everyone's attention!
See!!! Look how magical this is! The lady was just dancing with the dough and suddenly, strands of noodles were formed!
Ta daaa!! It's so amazing *thumbs up*
Then after that, we were given a nose-triggering, scent provoking, mouthwatering LIVE demo on how to make the Mamee Chef's paste.
Fuhlamak I tell you~ Just when the pan was heated, and then the ingredients were blended and put to boil, all our senses were immediately triggered. I could even hear my stomach acid regurgitated actively, because I, as a typical Malaysian, cannot resist the aroma of kunyit+serai+ginger+curry leaves and many more. It's really good. A whole new level of goodness was created just by mixing our local spices and herbs!
After that, I got distracted by
Did you know, until today, I love to eat Mamee Snacks? I used to steal my piggybank money like 20 cents and run to Pak Karim's sundry shop to buy a packet of Mamee Monster snacks. Then I will squat near my grandpa's fish pond to eat finish my snacks before heading back home. Some of the unfortunate days, I will get caught by my uncle and after that I get a few lashes of "whipping with love". My childhood was hell, or so I thought, but I never regret any of those. It's a memory I will always cherish.
Me and Mamee will grow old together *made a vow*.
Mamee started in 1972, with a noodle they called "Lucky". Their initial foray into the industry met with some bumps along the way. Lucky was not very successful, but I've asked my folks, they said yea, those days there were "Lucky Mien".
A couple of years later, Mamee
replaced Lucky. The name "Mamee"
was inspired because it's homonym to the word "Mommy"
, the first word that all of us had learn to say, which in fact, is true. How do I know all these details? I read it from TimothyTiah's blog here.
So, this was the Mamee that was produced during the year I was born, 1986.
And this was the version of Mamee when I was first introduced to Mamee.
Mamee Monster snacks were so adorable then.
and the Mamee Monster snacks that became my good friend until today.
~Me and Mamee~
After all the fun, we were brought to tour the production of Mamee noodles. Can you see the sheet of dough being transferred from one machine to another. It was fascinating to see so much dough, and it looks like a long sheet of cloth.
The dough will go through a process of mixing, steaming, frying..and many more before being made edible.
and then finally it takes shape of the Mamee noodle that we are all familiar with.
Of all the instant noodle, I love this mini-noodles the most. I'm glad that they are still producing it.
After the noodles were cooked, they will be transported to the packaging and QC section. This factory is so huge, and every product is produced concurrently.
This is where the Mamee noodle aroma can be smelled even it was shielded by a glass panel. Ohhh..look how 'kiddishly' happy I was! *shy*
So here's the final seal of the instant noodle cup lid.
Everything was done by machine, but workers were needed to check for any defects.
I see snacks!!! Loads of them!!!
It was really nice for Mamee to have helpers to explain to us the process, and to answer all of our questions. They were really professional when answering us.
Here's a short clip of the Mamee Factory Visit which I recorded for Instagram.
After the detailed tour, we were served lunch! The food was cooked and prepared by the Mamee Cafe at Jonker Walk. While queuing for food, samples of Mamee Chef were served to us too!
|Janice, and her heart-melting smile|
Nom nom time!
I met three new friends on this happy day, Siew Cheng, Anne and Michele. I love to disturb Anne especially, she's really adorable, and witty. Haha.. Here's a good photo of all of us with Mamee before we depart to the Mamee Cafe.
After filling our stomachs, we head to Melaka town. It seems like there's a cafe which was opened since last year, called Mamee Jonker House. I haven't heard of that Cafe, so I'm really eager to see what it is all about. Meanwhile, we were also given some time for sight seeing in Melaka.
|A random building by the roadside|
The weather was hot, the skies was so blue. We were all sweaty, but the view was spectacular!
|Kincir Air Kesultanan Melayu Melaka|
Melaka has become a famous tourist locations. Even the Melaka riverside was beautifully maintained.
There was a Dragon Boat Race on the same day! We were so fortunate, that the race happened right in front of our eyes. I was too busy cheering for the teams, I didn't capture any photo of the race.
|Dragon Boat Race Contestants getting ready in Melaka River|
Mamee's staffs were so helpful. He made sure we all walked safely to the Mamee Cafe in Jonker Walk. It will be better if he could umbrella us as well *hehe*.
Jonker Walk, a place filled with tourists.
Ok, we have arrived! Look out for this signboard ya.
|Mamee Jonker House, Jonker Street Melaka|
Mamee Jonker house
|A place where Mamee Double Decker goods, and memorabilia are sold|
, is a place packed with fun, and loads of Mamee
surprises. At the front part of this house, it's a place where Mamee products
were sold.There is even Mamee T-shirts, merchandize like cups, and soft toys
. But at the back of this Jonker house, there's the cafe, where local delicacies and coffee is served.
Oh ya, did i mention? I met my long lost brother. LOL!
|Me and Mamee Monster. I'm teaching him how to conquer the world.|
At the Mamee Jonker House, various kids activities was held on a regular basis as well. There's this section called Noodles Noodles, where we can make our own customize Mamee Cup Noodle. It's a section where you pay RM3.50, and they will give you a cup,and you can design the cup to to your likings. Here's mine.
|Nicole is going to expire soon.|
The cup noodle did not live until 13th June 2014. It has been walloped
by Nicole last week.
|Move across the station to have the customized cup noodle filled and packed.|
|Choose your fillings. (max 4 types)|
|Press the green button to seal the lid.|
|Watch the Mamee staff pack the cup noodle for you|
|Done! Perfectly sealed to be brought home!|
After being done with our noodle cup, me and Anne went exploring the noodle house. The whole house has a nice concept. The walls were pasted with some Mamee Double Decker Wonderland.
I wish I'm a cartoon character too!
|This is Anne, trying to warp into the walls|
|Let me in!!! Let me in!!!!!|
Sorry Mister Potato, I shall behave myself!
HEY LOOK! Mamee Performance Theatre!
|This is me looking very villian-ish. |
After that, Anne and I had to go to Monster Kitchen
. This is the place where
all monsters were being cooked.
kids learn to make their own customize Mamee Monster Snacks
This is the Mamee Monster Snacks workshop, where kids make their own snacks from scratch. It's really fun! The whole workshop takes about 3 hours, and priced at RM10 per kid. 6 kiddos are needed as a minimum requirement to kick start this workshop. Reservation is required for this workshop.
|Mamee staff explaning what's happening in the Monster Kitchen|
|The cafe downstairs, viewed from the 1st floor of the Mamee Jonker House.|
Mamee Jonker House is definitely a place packed with surprises. From the miniature Mamee Noodles miniatures (on the left hand side of the wall facing the entrance) to the cafe, and even the toilet signs were so Mamee-fied.
|Toilet signs - Female (left) and Male (right)|
And right outside the toilet, there's a display of Peranakan cups and teapots set
. I really, really love the peranakan
touch to this place. After all, Melaka is associated with the Baba and Nyonya
culture. I being a descendant of a Nyonya, am always fascinated by the intricate designs of the peranakan tablewares.
|Lovely Peranakan Antique China|
At about 5pm, we all left Melaka, waving our goodbyes to all the treasures that we had discovered on that day. Six creative guests went home with Mamee Double Decker hampers. But one thing for sure, everyone went home with smiles etched on our faces.

|Kids being introduced to diving experience in a pool in front of PWTC|
Yesterday was the last day of the annually-held Malaysian International Dive Expo 2014. It has held over 3 days and as a newly-crowned diver (self described) me and my 7 diving friends went to PWTC to pay our visit to our sifu ABen (Benjamin Choong) who was tending his booth there.
The guys were uber excited, and ended up spending RM1000+ on dive suits. Can't blame them at all, each suit was priced at RM200-300, depending on size and brands. I personally would recommend them to buy too because they always shiver in the water. For me, tak payahlah (no need), I have a thick layer of 'lapisan kedap haba' (fats).
After that, I spotted Turtle Bay Divers.
Those who added me in Facebook would know about my rantings about certain chalets in Pulau Perhentian. I am bringing my family for a weekend getaway to Perhentian Islands, but the local chalets didn't even bother to reply my enquiries. Only 3 replied me, Bubbles Dive, Watercolours, and Turtle Bay Divers.
My pick: Turtle Bay Divers. Why? Well Ange, my good friend, said she signed up with Mel from Turtle Bay Divers at an affordable price. Even Shereena signed up with Mel too! So far, correspondence with Mel has been smooth, and I can't wait to go to the island to play now.
For people who is looking for diving or non-diving trips to Perhentian Besar, you can look for Mel (email@example.com). She assures me that my booking will be in good hands. Well, I was very sceptical at first because my brother was conned during his budget trip to Redang Island (the promised budget accommodation was not booked by the agent, and ended up became a luxury trip).
My main concern was my parents happiness and convenience. I don't want my parents to be in Perhentian and got traumatised when there's no place to stay (it's still school holidays yo!). These kind of places should be packed with tourists! So well, I'll be flying on Friday. Will blog again my dive experience there when I come back!
I had also RSVP a dive trip to Padang (2015). There's approximately a gang of 12 people LOL! It's a big group!
MIDE 2014 in my opinion, was less packed that last year's. Cheap dive equipments? I don't know about this but honestly, everything that has to do with dive doesn't come cheap. I guess I have to start saving every penny that I make so that I can go under the sea more often!
