Korean Steamboat

Shout Out
The 100th posts... finally!

I'm not a fan of Korean food just as the Korean dramas, but when we've ran out of idea where to dine for our dinner, we headed to Korean Da Om BBQ house at Jalan Song, Kuching.

korean food menu

The restaurant is opened by a Korean family. The whole family migrate to Kuching as the dad works for an electronic company here. I guess the mum is too bored staying at home, thus she starts a Korean restaurant to ease the financial burden. You can hear the family chatting in Korean which made me feel like eating in Korea.

After scrolling the menu, the four of us decided for Boo Dea Ji Gea, a spicy steamboat with pork, kim-chi, ham, sausages and crab sticks.

Other than the one we ordered, there are other 2 more choices, which are: Bool Go Gin Jun Gol, a beef and vegetables steamboat with Korean noodle and a Hea Mool Jun Gol, seafood steamboat in Korean style.

The name sounds funny to me.

A: Which one you want?
B: Hea Mool Jun Gol.
A: Hea Mool Jun? Which team's player? How he scored the goal?
B: ...

The steamboat comes with 4 side dishes.

The Kim-chi is so spicy that the moment I put it into my mouth, tears started forming in my eyes, my body's temperature rose and I was sweating.

I don't know what is this but it tastes like a pancake to me.

The tea for the dinner

The steel chopsticks is heavy and slippery. The food keep on slipping away from it, trying to escape from my hungry stomach.

Guess what is inside this UFO lookalike bowl?

Surprise! It's just white rice... Zzz...

Don't ask me why the rice need to be covered. I guess it's to prevent cockroaches from falling inside XD

And finally, what we are waiting for...

The steamboat, with a slice of cheese on top!

The soup is spicy and hot, just as it is stated in the menu. I did not realized it as I was busy looking at the ingredients inside the soup back when we were ordering.

Throughout the night, my mouth is kept open for eating and sucking in cool air to cool my mouth from the hot and spicy food. For all the time I though Korean soup is tasteless, but the flame inside my mouth proves me wrong.

Industrial Playing

Shout Out
I don't feel like going to work tomorrow *lazy*

There are time when trainees aren't given tasks to do by the supervisor. Today is one of the boring days for both Ying and me.

Usually, we just stand aside, watching the technicians doing their stuffs. But today, it is so boring til Ying brought her own laptop and she started to play some computer games.

I mean, what kind of attitude is that? We were suppose to learn as much as we can when our university provides us with such opportunities. But you even brought your own laptop and started to play games as if all the technicians are dead?

Yes, I know that the allowance is only RM900 in total if the company remember our 3 months existence there, which RM600 from the total allowance will be paid to the blood sucking university as school fees for I don't know what's the reason. The leftover RM300 is not even enough to cover our petrol, let alone lunch. However, we still have to do what we should. Where's the professionalism?

The technicians did not gave us any tasks doesn't means that we don't have to work. There's always job like sweeping the dirty floor, wiping and tidying up the messy table or even offering the technicians some help.

But no, you just sat there and played the games as if your dad owns the company. So that's how a soon-to-be engineer behaves? It's very disappointing you know?


On the same boat with her larrr... playing NFS: Prostreet and watching Bleach that I just finished download this morning somemore... wahahahahahah :P

Christmas Template

Conversation of the day

Last Saturday, 9.30am at my workplace

Technician: You can go back, there isn't much work to do today, somemore it's raining and we can't do anything. I help you punch your card later, don't worry.

Me: *paiseh* Oh... erm... ok...

Today, 9am at my workplace

Me: Can I go back now? There's no work right? It's boring here.

Technician: *smile* Ok, since there's nothing for you to do. Go back, I'll help you punch your card. *Deep down in the heart* Damn, shouldn't have offered him last week, I didn't know that he's so thick-skinned. Sekali cuba, nak lagi *sweat*


Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the ways~

Yeap, Christmas is just around the corner and I've changed my template to match the Christmas theme. How is it?

After the holidays end, I guess I need some inspirations to design a whole new template. I can't be using this theme for the whole year right? *cough* I forgot how long the snowman background stays in my Friendster. I think there must be someone thinking that I celebrate Christmas throughout the year, hehe! *cough*

For a lazy ass like me, it's like asking me to study non-stop for two hours straight. The process, which involve in drawings and codings, is tedious. Furthermore, I'm not familiar with HTML and CSS coding. It just make my life miserable when it comes to changing my blogger template. How I wish there's some programmers out there to help me with my template sometimes. Hehehe

But in some circumstances, which is a rare occasion, I can sit in front of my PC, drawing, coding and troubleshooting some of the problem exists. There must be some recipe for this miracle to happen, I guess the ingredients are mood, time and ideas. Without any one of these, I'm just a lazy guy who rather waste his time watching movies and playing games :P

Burning Clothes

Ever wonder how your mum hang your clothes?

I was looking at a "Ways to save Fuel" poster in front of the staff room and I saw this!

OMG! I don't even know my mum goes to and back the sun everyday just to dry my shirts!

But I guess there's no need for my mum to go to the Sun just to hang my shirts. We already got our first space flight passenger angkasawan, Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor Al Masrie bin Sheikh Mustapha to do that for us. That's what we call, "Hero". Hehe!

I'm not sure the preposition is used correctly or not, it just sound weird, don't you think so?

My First Allowance

I've told that I won't be getting any allowances for my 3 months industrial training as the budget for trainees ran out. It was disappointing to me, most of my friends get at least RM300 per month, some even gets RM1000 per month. Imagine how many things I can buy with that money, with the leftover from petrols and food. I envy them.

Unfortunately, I'm not the lucky one. I have to work for free, paying for the petrol and my lunch from my own pocket until 2 weeks ago, I was asked to meet the HR executive. I was asked to give her my name and IC number, and I was been told that there might be some leftover from the budget. I did not gave any high hopes on the amount that I'm going to get, I was expecting something around RM100. Even the amount not much, it's better than none.

So, I've been waiting for the called from the office and yesterday, the superintendent in the electrical department asked me to take my allowance from the office. Off I went, with a big grin on my face.

After meeting with the person in charge, I signed on a piece of document, and the person in charge gave me my allowance in the form of a cheque.

To my surprise, the amount written on it is RM300! I was delighted. It was my first allowance for the first month ever since I was working for 7 weeks. Hopefully it will not be the last, there'll be two more to be exact when I end my industrial training.

Lucy the Hedgehog

I've been quite busy with my real life recently. Apart from going to and back from work, I helped my mum with some of the house chores, not sweeping the floor or wiping the windows, you know, that kind of jobs. The stuffs I did burns calories, tonnes of them. For the record, I've made a rack for plants and pots using recycled woods, cleaning out the backyard, and painted my sister's room. With the leftover free time, I'll sit in front of my computer playing Need for Speed: ProStreet/browsing forums and blogs/chatting with gf or friends. I just don't have the mood and energy to blog, I guess that explain my short disappearance here :P

Anyway, these are some of Lucy's cute picture I took before I came back to Kuching. FYI, Lucy is my adopted hedgehog and a weapon that will be used to throw at Auntie Evie if I get to meet her one day... MUAHAHAHAHAHA!

I'm not sure what attracted her but she kept biting my bed sheet after she sniffed it. Maybe she's attracted to my masculine smell aka 男人味.

Hedgehog anoints (you can see it in the video below) by licking its body which will later form foams on it. Scientists and researchers are still looking some explanations for this mysterious behaviors.

In my humble opinion *cough*, smells sensitive hedgehogs perform this act when they're exposed to new environment, where the smell of the new environment is different from the previous one. The new smell will send the hedgehogs anoints, forming the foam that contains some sort of chemical that has the same molecule with the new environment, making the hedgehogs blend with the new surrounding thus invisible to the predators' nose. This is just the assumption I made as I do not own any suitable equipments to give it a test. Hopefully any researchers or scientists will accidentally visit this blog and give it an experiment. Who knows it might be a cure to AIDS or cancer, right? Ahhh... Nobel prize, here I come~ *daydreaming*

Chocolate Fondue for Robots

Ever wonder how chocolate fondue for robots looks like? I got the answer after watching the technicians servicing a motor in the workshop.

With screws and grease, you will get the sweet dessert for robots. I bet Bender the bad robot must love it to death if he knows how to make one.

Damn Bender.
