Curry Pok Expedition



Sheylara posted this plurk (http://www.plurk.com/p/2srcyw) about her aunt's curry pok stall. I'd bet my last dollar, it was targeted at me knowing I have a weakness for them little curried delights.

You evil Sheylara! Purposely want to make me gian one right?

Alas, I succumbed to temptation and....


The taste of curry poks were ok. The crust, even when just freshly made, was a tad soft (soggy) to my liking but I am glad there weren't chicken chunks in them like Old Chang Kee and Tip Top to make the entire curry pok eat already sibeh jelat one.

What I do like is the generosity of the filling as it was filled to the brim unlike some of the Malay varieties having more air then potato inside. That type eat already will get angry one!

If you can only have one, I would recommend the sardine curry pok instead. It's got a slight spice kick that traveled all the way up to my scalp and itch. I looked inside and whoa! Red and green chilli inside! No wonder! iRike!!

Sheylara: I should be thanking you! It was a fun "expedition", the discovering was the fun part. Good curry pok is an added bonus.

usually when there is a small quip tied to something, it'd be more interesting lor.. e.g. hmm.... so this is Sheylara's auntie's curry pok. nom nom nom nom.....

Hear The Siren Scream!


It was one heck of a birthday bash as we had Terz, Vandalin and Siren all celebrating their birthdays. As with CowBoyBar @ Wala Wala tradition, all birthday boys/girls must take the Waterfall.

It was a great turnout and the place was unfortunately super-packed as a result of a public holiday eve.

Still, it didn't deter us from having not one but (wait for it.... ) THREE WATERFALLS!!!

We were lucky we didn't burn the house down that night.

Anyway, here's best picture of the night.


Check out that ass! Yummy! But better yet, CHECK OUT THAT SMUG GRIN ON VANDALIN'S FACE!!!! Buahahaahah.....

Anyway, for the rest of the flickr set, Click here.

Also, I have the WORLD'S MOST ANNOYING RINGTONE EVAR!!! Click here to download. Courtesy of Her Royal Siren.

The Player-Manager

A football player over the age of 35 was due for retirement from the top flight as the player returned home from playing in overseas leagues for more than a decade.

Wanting to extend his career further, the player accepted the appointment of a Player-Manager in the lower echelons of the domestic league.

It was like a breath of fresh air as the Player relished the idea of hanging up his boot, albeit not fully retiring yet, and continue to be involved with his first love.

Football.

The now Player-Manager came in with lots of fanfare and the spirits within the club was uplifted by leaps and bounds.

The Player-Manager was a very hands-on person who would not hesitate to put himself in the Starting Lineup whenever injuries and suspensions got a bit too heavy. Alas, it was a club in the lower league and the team did not have the squad depth of the big boys.

The club was doing well as the Player-Manager started to string victories consistently and started to climb out of the relegation zone.

It was at around mid-table, mid-season that the Player-Manager figured that they needed to bring in more players in order to keep the momentum of advancing to the Promotion Playoffs at the very least.

The Player-Manager went up to the board to ask for a bigger transfer kitty in anticipation of the coming transfer window in January. Alas, it was shot down citing lack of funds.

As the injuries and fatigue started to take its toll on the club, the club started to drop points home and away resulting in a slide towards the relegation zone. Transfer requests from the players also started to stream in, added to the immense pressure that the Player-Manager was already facing.

Then came the shocker when out of the blue, the Board of Directors decided to call for a press conference. It was the announcement of two new signings to reinforce the squad. The irony was that the Player-Manager was totally kept in the dark of the two new transfers. His position was totally undermined and made to look bad.

Did the Player-Manager not already spotted the need to bring in fresh legs in the first place? Then now the Board of Directors are all high-five-ing and patting themselves on the back for a savvy maneuver in the transfer market with trumpets blaring and all???

WTF???

The Player-Manager decided enough is enough and walked.

The club continued its spiral into the relegation abyss.

A Tale Of Two Runs


It was the New Balance Real Run 2009 and it was a fantastic run last Sunday at the Changi Exhibition Centre where I clocked 1 hr 43 mins to clear the tri-terrain 15km run. The sea breeze early in the morning was most refreshing and quality of the air was good. Ironically, it was the shady Casuarina trees path that proved to be one of the hot spots as the neatly lined-up trees blocked the wind and we were like running through a tunnel of still air.

I am surprised how people were saying how fast my timing was as the folks at SGRunners.com were all claiming to clock around 1 hr 30 mins. Then again, the bar (no pun intended) of the CowBoyBar is certainly set much lower.

Truth to be told, I believe I could have easily clocked a better timing if not for the 2 factors.
  • This is the first time I am running the New Balance Real Run and I have no idea what the route is like and hence I was very conservative in my speed as I kept worrying about running out of steam before I reach the finish line.
  • Given what happened to the previous Mizuno Wave Run where I did run out of steam at the 10km mark, I was not sure if I am trained up to tackle 15km.
Well apparently, I was wrong on both counts. I shall return next year and will clock a better time. 1 hr 30 mins perhaps?

And speaking of the Mizuno Wave Run 2009, I clocked the 16km run in 2 hrs 18 mins.

Anyway, the Mizuno Wave Run sucks monkey balls.

I cannot believe HOW BADLY ORGANISED it was.
  • First, the road marshal at the YioChuKang-Casuarina junction send us the wrong way. By right, we should have just made a simple right turn and run along the road. Instead the errant road marshal sent us up the Peirce Reservoir hill which is an a uphill-then-downhill route of 2 additional km.

    Many of us ran out of steam as we did not "budget" this climb into our run plan.
  • The toll it took to run that extra hill was evident as the water points right after the hill ran out very early. I didn't get any water for 2 subsequent water points after I cleared the hill.

    In fact, all that was left at the 2nd water point was buckets of ice but no water. I had no choice but to just grab two handfuls of ice cubes and run with them in my hands.
  • The last point that really pissed me off was the final stretch from Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1 back to Nanyang Polytechnic where they were unable to get the permit from the Traffic Police to seal off the road for running. We ended up having to stop at almost every traffic light. What kind of a stupid run is this if running have to start stop start stop?
I am still ok with the first two obstacles where extra distance is just merely an extra challenge and I could always get a water belt (which I did for the New Balance Real Run) to tackle the water shortage situation.

But not sealing off race route is just simply unacceptable. It is miserable to run and it is also a safety risk to the runners.

I will not return to the Mizuno Wave Run. Other than the very nice backpack, everything else sucks monkey balls.

Bizarre Suicide Attempt In China

I got this in the email from my Cousin Nick (whom I am hoping the fella faster hurry set up his facebook account).

It is a set of photos whom the source is unknown. Sure there are watermarks on the pictures trying to stake a claim to it but I think the source of these photos traced back even further.

So anyway, here they are:



So one fine day, some lady decided to crawl all the way to the end of the bridge railing hovering over the river.

Apparently, she came prepared as she took out a knife to fend off any attempts to rescue her.

And when I said "prepared", I really meant "prepared" as she brought drinks along with her. Won't be surprised if she is no stranger to this as she kinda knew that this is going to be a long drawn out drama. Come to think of it, maybe she brought fruits along in that plastic bag of hers and hence the knife. *shrugs*

Then suddenly stood up much to the gasps of the people watching and you would've noticed that the knife, drink and plastic bag are gone by now.

And then she started to take off her panties??!! WTF??!!!

And then she started to PEE??!!! WTFBBQ??!!
Ok, I take that back about she be no stranger to this weird-assed shite. She obviously didn't do bladder management prior to this. FAIL.

And they finally got her safe and sound.


Moral of the story. 

- Got pang jio before you attempt suicide.

- And I suggest that goes for Pang Sai too..... whoa.... cannot imagine that!

McDonald's Monopoly Game


So I was hearing about this Monopoly game organised by McDonald's as part of their promotion, which I was totally clueless.

As per my earlier entry, we had Faith's birthday party at McDonald's. When it came to settling the bill, we were given this kan dua stack of these McDonald's Monopoly peel-away thingies which I saw for the very first time.

To be honest, I still don't know how this game works and it certainly doesn't look very interesting.

So out of boredom, I decided to just open them to see what is inside.

Eh. Very boring leh......

HOW COME ALL SENTOSA COVE ONE??!!

Faith Is 7 Today!

Today is Faith's birthday!!

After running 15km in the morning in the New Balance Real Run, I had to rush back home to shower and pick up grandpa and grandma to the birthday party.

Good idea to hold it at MacDonald's and let the restaurant run the show for you.

OK, so MacDonald's isn't exactly my favourite junk food joint but who am I to stop the kids from having a good time?

Yeah, that's 2+ hours of screaming kids running amok all over the place with a couple of bawling thrown in for good measure.

Oh and what is the thing about tattoos on kids these days? We were taught from young that tattoos are for bad people i.e. secret society gangsters type. Even when we were young, our rebellious nature goes only as far as the water tattoo on the underside of the 10-cent bubble gum wrapper.

Somehow, fun cartoon tattoos are SOP items at kids' birthday parties.

Sigh. Times have changed.

Thereafter, it's Andrea's birthday party at her place as both girls have the same birthday.

Yeah. Not 1 session of screaming kids but 2.

Man, what I give to run another 15km.

Still, it's Faith's birthday lah. So must positive a bit lor.

Happy Birthday!
