Look before you eat

He's the one that usually goes and gets the snacks and goodies .
And it was also him that cut it open .
He popped one into his mouth and then I put my uninvited hand in the opening to fish out one for myself .

As I was proving to be a distraction , he shoved the pack in my direction .

That's when I peered in and ....gasp !!!!
Oh mai gawds !!!!!
Is that what I think it is ? 
Is that a fingernail ???????

Tried to fish it out but it fell to the bottom . Thus I had to take all the contents out to see if it really was what I thought it was .

Monsoon season

I used to dread the monsoon season until I went to Mumbai .
Never looked at rain the same way again after that .

Still most Malaysians will immediately feel a bit under the weather when the skies pour down mercilessly and ruin our shoes through and through . We will grumble and mutter and should we be caught in the midst of dining out in the open , we will run helter skelter and take our plates with us to the nearest sheltered place possible .

Guess the rain came too quick today .
The irony of our flag twisted above the motley of abandoned tables is not lost on me .....

Ampang Yong Taufu in Penang

 Many years ago ( not so good with recalling exact numbers so I'll put it around 10 years ago ) , I found this stall at a foodcourt just behind the Shell station at the Tun Dr Awang roundabout in Bayan Lepas .
Beside them was the Sabah Pan Mee operator which became so successful that today they have taken up an entire shoplot a few doors down from the Kampar fishball outlet near the Queensbay roundabout .
Eyah ....kindly read that again . That is Penang today for you . People come from everywhere and they offer all that familiar hometown comfort foods to outstationers who now call Penang , home .

Nee wayyy , after a long goose chase I have finally , finally , fiiiiinally located them tucked away in Taman Sri Nibong at the second kopitiam just opposite Goh Teo Kee .

Daiso Hand and Body Warmer

Never used this before .
Yet I'm gonna give it a try .
It's a little early however I'm snapping 2 packets up before it totally disappears from the shelves and then I'd have to go loco going from store to store searching for it .

In the paper today

With this picture finally out in the newspapers , I hope that the tiny state of Perlis will finally be seen as destination challenge by our local shutterbugs out there .
