China's melamine-poisoned food

This is really a hot topic to talk about these days.

On Friday, Singapore’s AVA suspended the import of all milk and milk products from China and instructed retailers and importers to recall such products.

Three products were found to contain melamine - “White Rabbit Creamy Candy”, “Yili Brand Choice Dairy Fruit Bar Yogurt” and “Dutch Lady” strawberry-flavoured milk.

Please avoid buying these products.

What's Melamine???

Don't ever trust the security guards - story 2

Just heard about a rape case at a multinational company which just happened sometimes back last year. The victim is married with kids, she worked till 11.00 pm. Security guard raped her in the toilet. She managed to escape and drove herself to the hospital.

Next day, the other employees was shocked to see the condition of the toilet. Blood and her hair everywhere, and all the brooms and mops were broken. The police later came and arrested the security guard, who still reported for work the next day. However, they manage to cover it up, not even come up in the newspaper or any media.

Don't ever trust the security guards - story 1

There is a girl who was raped and murdered.

She went back to work on a public holiday with another girl, the boyfriend even packed lunch for them and later when the girls wanted to go home, the car couldn't start and the other girl's boyfriend who came to pick her up didn't wait because the girl told them to go off first and there was a security guard helping her. She didn't come home that night and they found her body in a burnt car abandoned in a rubber estate in Dengkil on the 3rd day.

The guard reported to work and acted normal during the police investigation but when the police questioned him again, he remembered the color of her clothes in detail and they noticed that the hair on his hands were seared although there was no burnt marks. He finally admitted that he is the one that killing her. There was no cover up but the case was not publish in the newspapers.

Girls beware!

Police have mounted an inter-state manhunt for a notorious gang which robbed a couple before raping their eight-year-old daughter in their Kepong home on Monday. They believe the same gang is also behind Tuesday's incident where a 31-year-old housewife was gang raped by five men in front of her husband at a house in Kelana Jaya after relieving them off RM30,000 in cash and valuables.

In the first incident on Monday, three knife-wielding men broke into house in Bukit Maluri, Kepong, at 2.30am and held up the family. The robbers, who entered from the back door, then threatened the couple and their three children before tying them and ransacking the house.

Several minutes later, two of the robbers took the couple's eldest daughter to a room and allegedly raped her. The gang then fled after 40 minutes with about RM5,000 in cash and valuables.

City police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Meor Chek Hussin Mahayuddin said police had also beefed-up patrols in the area. They are liaising with their counterparts in Negri Sembilan where the gang is believed to be also operating.

p/s. I suppose it serves as a warning to people working late, especially girls, don't work too late and be alone in shady places. Take care.

Mid-autumn festival

Where have all of you went during the mid-autumn festival? Hubby and I stay at home with the family. At about 8pm, hubby started going out with some lanterns, lighten them up and hang them at the gate. The children haven't ready to play, so hubby played by himself! I sat at the swing watching him.

Too boring playing alone....
He started to make the paper lantern on fire!

Hubby stopped playing after 15 minutes, the kids continue with it after that. We walk around the neighborhood, found out that there are only 2 house which kids are playing with candles and lantern. Oh, how come?

Full of tomato sauce!!!

Hubby and I went to Moven Peak (the old one) for dinner last Saturday. We ordered nasi lemak, shrimp fried rice and Thai style chicken chop.

After waiting for 15 minutes, the foods arriving our table gradually. I had some nasi lemak and turned to taste the chicken chop. What would you do before start cutting some chicken to eat? I'm sure all of us will pour some tomato sauce or chili sauce to the plate before it.

Well, just at the moment I open-up the tomato sauce cap, "POP". Oh my gosh! I'm fulled of tomato sauces, all over my body! Oh, my hands, chest, shirts, jeans and shoes! I can't imagine how embarrassing I am!

While everybody's curiously looking at me, one of the waiters handed me some tissues, hubby went to our car to fetch me some wet tissues. I wiped and wiped until all those sauces gone off. I'm really on fire! But I know I need to calm down, not to shout. So I kept quiet and ate.

Tell the truth, their services and food are not as expected. The chicken chop's too spicy and the fried rice's burned. I've black-listed this restaurant. I won't ever be backed!

Steamboat dinner

A glamour “pork free” steam boat restaurant has opened, locating itself among the mist of restaurants in Ipoh Garden East. With the whole shop surrounded by mirrors succeeded it in visually looking wide.
We went there last Sunday for dinner. Personally I think this place is good for dating, it's beautifully renovated with simple but nice furnishing. Most of all, it's quiet!

The foods are taken out for our selection in a trolley - reminding me to go for a “dim sum” breakfast! If compared with buffet kind of steamboat, there is not much selection in the trolley. But still it is enough, don’t be so demanding!

As conclusion, the foods and soup are okay, pricing also okay, no harm trying! May be you will like it!

Delicious shrimp

Our family went Moven Peak for buffet steamboat yesterday to celebrate "known anniversary". Hubby and I were known on 09.09.1999. This is the ninth year we known each other! I ate in about two dozens of shrimps! Shrimps are always my favorite, I love to cook my dishes with it. Life without shrimp will surely be miserable for me!

Ever heard about Great American Seafood cook off? It is a competition presented by the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board featured top chefs from around the nation cooking with domestic, sustainable seafood from their home state.

The five finalists of the 2008 Great American Seafood Cook-Off were given a challenge to create a healthy and simple dish for the final round of competition. These dishes had to contain one of two mystery ingredients, either Southwest Airline Peanuts or select brews from Michelob Brewing Co, and the dish’s ingredients had to represent all five food groups and be a dish that even the most harried home chefs could prepare.

Among the five recipes listed, I would like to choose to cook Texas Gulf Shrimp, which was created by Chef Mark Holley from Texas. The shrimps are to put over hominy cakes with heirloom tomato relish drizzled with prickly pear gastrique. It definitely looks great with all kind of colors. It is rare but interesting to have shrimps and hominy cakes combined to create a dish. The ingredients are easily bought from anywhere. So why not we give it a try, cook now!

Do visit and choose for your favorite recipe with the chance to win a trip to New Orleans prize package!

Another RM120!!!

Yup, another RM120 won in Genting Highland!

We went there last Sunday once again! My father and mother in law suggested this one-day-trip. So soon after last week's Genting trip, hubby and I were "back"!

We visited the casino right after our breakfast. Played for a while, we won RM35. After having some walk at First World, we won RM15. Lastly, we won another RM70 before going Starbucks for a cup of ice-blended chocolate!

Surprise to see such a couple? Gamble few times just to win RM120? To tell the truth, we don't really like gambling. We are gambling just for the sick of getting some subsidize for the trip.

Our next trip to Genting Highland will be on 5th of October, another family trip!

Won RM300 !!!

Hubby and I won ourself RM300 in the Genting Highland casino!

The main purpose we went in to the casino was to be present in order to get Genting points for upgrading my current "blue" Genting Worldcard to a "green" Genting Worldcard. It is just for the ease of room reservation. I noticed that Genting Highland's hotels reserved more rooms for "green" card holder. I, previously holding a "blue" card, hardly get any room only reservation. We are taking a package of RM348 for this stay.

We won RM170 on the 1st day, and RM120 on the 2nd day. It was lucky for both of us to have won enough to pay for the toll fee, petrol fee and also our lunch and dinner.

I wonder whether we are fortunate again to win RM300 in our next trip to Genting Highland. If yes, then I'm sure I wanted to be there next month again as we got a voucher of free room for upgrading the Genting Worldcard. I wanted to bring my father and mother in law there since they didn't travel for quite a long time.

Should I pay another visit to Genting Highland next month?
