爸爸,我想念你了..

Thursday, March 26

这一年,爸爸离开了我。这个世界上最疼我的爸爸离开了我。

我来自家庭背景复杂的小家庭。爸爸是一名厨师,最拿手的是点心(dim sum)。 我的爸爸年轻时就开始学做点心,到他离开的那一刻,他依然是那么厉害的厨师。我的爸爸很喜欢讲笑话,他时常会丑化自己弄我开心。有时候,我真的觉得我的幽默基因是遗传我的爸爸,所以我才会那么搞怪。

那年我十岁,因为经济问题,我们一家人从柔佛来到吉隆坡。不知道什么时候开始,温馨、快乐、幸福的字眼,离我们家远去。而且还是一去不回。我的爸爸决定离开家里,到外面去闯。就这样,我们没住在一起已经有十年那么久。

我今年23岁,这23年里面,把爸爸骂我的次数三根手指就可以数得完。无可否认,我的爸爸很疼我,只要是我要的,我的爸爸一定想尽办法把它弄到手给我!即使爸爸离开家里,但他还是会时常打电话给我,有时候还会特地回来吉隆坡,就只为了看我一面。

2014年的某一天,我停学了。很遗憾的,我无法完成我的学业。妈妈是唯一一个知道整个事情的人。我没有把事实告诉爸爸,我选择了欺骗和隐瞒。我告诉爸爸,我毕业了。爸爸很紧张,他抱着满怀的希望,一直吵着回来跟我拍毕业照。我却一直想尽各种办法和借口拒绝。。。

有几次我甚至不接爸爸的电话。因为我害怕我的谎言被拆穿。在爸爸去世的前几天, 爸爸打了很多通电话给我,我因为害怕所以没有接。。。我真的很后悔没有把接了那通电话。我不知道爸爸要告诉我什么。我永远也不会知道。。。这件事情我放在心里很久,找不到对象说。。。

某一天,爸爸突然觉得胸口闷闷的,就这样晕倒在路边,嘴里吐着白沫。路人没有一个伸出援手,的是司机不愿帮忙把爸爸载到医院。就这样爸爸错过了最后拯救的黄金时段。爸爸走了。因为没人肯帮忙,爸爸最后被装进黑纸袋,由警察载走了。

爸爸常常说“如果我死了怎么办?你又这么笨,又不漂亮,有没有钱。。。”我听了都会哈哈大笑。我老是觉得爸爸过度的担心,我的爸爸怎么可能会这么早离开。我从来没有想过会有这么一天,爸爸离开我的这一天。没有想到这一天这么快就来了。。。

哪怕到今天为止,我都依然觉得爸爸还在。爸爸只不过是躲起来而已。那一天的爸爸样子很慈祥,嘴角微微上扬。整个样子看起来就是慈父一名。我知道现在不管我怎么叫,爸爸也不会起来,爸爸也不会 弄我笑。


这一条项链是我这么大以来,爸爸第一次送我的生日礼物。你可能会觉得这么小一条有什么好炫耀的。我不是要炫耀,但是这么礼物对我有着很大的意义。我的爸爸从来就没有送过我生日礼物,这是唯一一件。如今物在人已不在。。。

过了这么多个月,爸爸都不常出现在我的梦里。直到最近,爸爸出现在我的梦里了! 我们望了彼此很久,然后很开心的笑了起来。爸爸看起来很健康,很和谐。

我的爸爸最担心我找不到工作,如果可以我很想告诉他,我找到了一份很好的工作,叫他不要担心。我希望你来世不要再做厨师。厨师太辛苦了,你的手到处都是被油溅到的伤口。很不好看。

人家说,不要太挂念死去的亲人。他们会感受到我们的不舍得,留在人世,不肯投胎。可是我好希望,如果可以,我希望爸爸再来我的梦里一次,让我看看你多一次,把我抱入你的怀里一次,一次就好。。。

我想念你了

[REVIEW] PHILIPS VISA PURE @ AFTER 5 MONTHS RESULT

Tuesday, March 24

Been using Philip's Visa Pure for quite some times. Philips Visa Pure has become 1 of the must have cleansing tool for my daily skincare routine! Been writing about my experience of Visa Pure after using it for 1 month (you can read it ''HERE").  Since it has been quite sometimes, is time for me show you my changes after 5 months of using it! 


In case you don't know about what Philip's Visa Pure is, you can check it out "HERE". I've tried several type of cleansing tool in the market. PHILIPS Visa Pure is definitely in my top 3 list! I bring it to anywhere I go, always make sure my skin is clean. Didn't use Visa Pure for 1 day and I feel my skin is so dirty! 


Water proof. Can use it during shower ( good for those who keep say no time for deep cleansing ). Drop in into bath tub? Small case la~  Elegant design. ( I love the outlook of the product, just a huge pencil ) Convenient. ( I can bring it to anywhere even i go for a trip ) Super Soft Brush. ( The brush head for normal skin is soft. BUT the brush head for sensitive skin is softer. )


Some people out there are still wondering how this thing work and doesn't it really give good result? Visa Pure has two speeds setting. Press 1 time for the normal speed, press 2 times for faster speed. Faster speed is recommended for makeup remover. 

Change areas after 20 seconds across three zones: T-zone, left cheek and right cheek. After 1 minute programme. PHILIPS VisaPure automatically switches off to prevent overtreatment. 


While the brush is spinning, it actually helps to clean the pore and the vibration help to "push" out all the dust and substance which tend to block your pores. VisaPure works with THE ONLY CLEANSING SYSTEM IN THE WORLD - Dual Motion technology. The brush rotate and vibrateacross skin to lift dirt and impurities. The rotating movement sweeps the impurities away, the skin is deeply cleansed. The vertical motion provides a comfortable massaging effect, improving microcirculation. 


Visa Pure silky soft bristles easily reach all areas. The bristle can remove all impurities over all areas hands cannot reach easily. With the silky soft bristle, you can cleanse pores in a gentle way. Look what happen if we use hand to wash our face? Hands can't really clean all the impurities in the pores. That's is why we need cleansing tool for cleaner skin! 

What happen if the brush is not comfortable to use anymore? Don't worry, you can buy the brush head,you can buy it individually. 3 types of brush head available for you to choose!  Normal skin replacement brush head @ RM59 , sensitive skin replacement brush head @ RM65 and exfoliating skin replacement brush head @ RM69.  


I have a very complicated skin condition. Acne + sensitive + oily + dry skin! Visa pure helped me to clean my face effectively without creating any redness and irritating! Am now happy with my skin condition now! Right after I cleansing my face using Visa Pure, I can see my pore has been minimized! No more rough skin surface! Invest in the correct products, give your skin a new life!

Water Mochi at Minamotonoya Cafe 源の屋

Read so much good review about the water mochi at  Minamotonoya Cafe 源の屋. I don't really like mochi. The first thing when i think of mochi, is the stickiness texture of mochi and how it stick on my teeth! But then, I saw the sexy water mochi on facebook, and I decided to give it a try!


This cafe is somewhat hidden in Sri Petaling area. Get down from your car and walk around, if not you'll not able to find the cafe. The cafe is a bit small, can't really fit in to many people. Make sure you visit earlier or else you need to queue for quite a long time to get yourself a table. 


Walking into the restaurant, we were greeted with a cozy and warm ambience. BUT, when the cafe is packed with people..................its so noisy! I feel so uncomfortable! I don't understand why people use to shout even the people sitting in front of them. Arghh!



I love this sitting at this corner. This is the only sitting corner that looks so different! Very comfortable + special chair, with a tiles wall as background. I fall in love with those hanging flower pots on wall! 


The tofu cheese cake. RM 9.90.  I have to say this tofu cheese cake doesn’t taste good at the first bite, BUT after a few bites, but after a few bites, there’re some chemical reaction happened between the tongue and the saliva, which make the cake taste so good! ONE MORE CHEESE CAKE PLEASE! 


So, this is the famous water mochi! I know, it's just a normal water jelly on a unique, cute plate. But hey, who doesn't like cute things? The water jelly looks like a big water drop! The jelly taste so good when it mixed with brown sugar and caramel sauce and some roasted soya beans powder! RM 6.90 for one water jelly. I wish I know how to make water mochi, feel so regret to finish the mochi!

Food Review @ Madam Kwan Pavilion

Wednesday, March 18

Good day people! It's 10pm now and I hope you've already had your dinner. There is no question that food plays a major role in life ( especially after a hectic day at work ). I went to Madam Kwan few days ago, and here's my review! Let's get started! 


Last year Madam Kwan’s got a ‘Twist It Up’ Contest, where contestant are required to come out with a new recipe ( twisting ingredients together to create a drink). Below are the winner of ‘Twist It Up’ Contest : Wong Jun Ho, Ibrahim, Shamila Thamuthran, Alan Khoo, Anne Hoo! 


Today, I've a chance to taste on 1 of the winner recipe —— "The Yellow Trio" by Wong Jun Ho. "The Yellow Trio" is actually a drink which mix with a layer of sago, mango, banana, pineapple and a vanilla ice cream as topping! Not too sweet and not too strong, high recommended to those who love banana, pineapple and mango!!!
"The Yellow Trio" - RM 11.90

Lychee Mojito, another drink created by Madam Kwan itself. Not too sweet and refreshing! Put your hands up if you're lychee lover! The scent of mint...Hmmm.... I guess I can sleep well smelling these mint leaves! 
Lychee Mojito - RM 11.90

"The Yellow Trio" & "Lychee Mojito" are the new mocktail drink, make sure you try this out when you visit Madam Kwan. 


Starter
Malaysian Platter ( Malaysia Satay, Otak-Otak) . The Malaysian Platter is come with satay on bamboo skewers, a plate of peanut sauce, otak-otak, nasi impit, sliced onions, sliced cucumbers and sliced pineapple. Satay is a mainstay favourite amongst Malaysians. 


The meat is juicy, not much fat like we use we eat at those road side stall. It is suitable for elder people! I hate it so much when the satay is full of chicken fats instead of meat! How can we call it as satay if there's no peanut sauce for dipping. NOT-SO-SPICY peanut sauce ( I can eat until the 7th level of spicy ). 



Awwww!! I love otak-otak! I can eat 2 bowl of rice with only otak-otak! Juicy, spicy, great taste! Took the first taste on the otak-otak, OMG!!! That's the otak-otak that I've been searching for so long!! 


 Main Course
Madam Kwan's Signature Curry Chicken. Rich gravy and smooth texture for the curry sauce. I love the thick, silky curry texture! You can never get enough for this! I'm so hungry man!!!!


Otak-otak Fried Rice. When otak-otak meet fried rice = perfect match! Cut the otak-otak into small cube and fried it with rice. The otak-otak is still looking good even been fried for sometimes! I looks like a sunflower with sliced tomatoes on the plate!



Petai Fried Rice. Who say petai is smelly?! Who say petai is not delicious? I can't live without petai! Somehow, this petai fried rice do not have that strong petai smell. The petai is soft! Not spicy at all! Try this fried rice, who knows you might fall in love with petai after this! 



Stir Fried Beef with Spring Onions. Worry of bad-beef smell? You can never smell the bad beef smell from this dishes! The texture of the beef is so soft, suitable for children and elder people. 




Asparagus with Lily Bulb and Cashew Nut Flakes. Can you imagine how it taste like when asparagus meet cashew nut and lily bulb? Some
of you might not know about lily bulb. Lily Bulb is a health benefiting edible root
vegetable that grows from the Lily plant. It provide protein, calcium and other vitamins.
Even the cashew nut are being fried, somehow it does not get to soft! Soft asparagus
without the strong “green” taste! 


Belacan Mixed Vegetables. My oh My! Belacan! A simple but delicious way to cook vegetables! The belacan taste so so so good plus so ‘wangi’.  It is a spicy condiment of pounded dried shrimp paste with fresh chillis and lime juice. Not too salty!


Assam Sotong. The assam flavors are so strong that it works well even with squid. The squids are in bite size pieces and soft to bite. A bite will always make you want more. Hehehe!! 


Curry Fish Head. You know what I like about this curry fish head? It was full of meat! I don't think your throat will ken stuck by the fish bones! The most important think is, it doesn't have a thick layer of oil! 


Stir Fried Ming Prawns with Superior Soya Sauce. The shrimp is deep fried and the shell turn so crispy. If you like to eat prawn head, just bite the whole prawns! Soooooo crispy!!!  



Dessert
Fresh fruits platter.


Cendol with Red Bean flavour. Nice cendol only in Kampung area? NOPE! You can even taste it at Madam Kwan! Shaved ice + pandan jelly + red bean! Definitely a relief from the sweltering hot weather! 


Want to try another local delicacy? Why not try their Ice Campur! This Ice campur is the best ice campur I ever tried! Acceptable sweetness level! So refreshing........ ahhh! It doesn't have thick, milky sweetened condensed milk on top of the ice!


In case you're interested in all the food above, you may order the Special Get Together set RM600 set ( for 10 pax )! Having so much fun at the food tasting session! I hope you guys enjoy the food at Madam Kwan like I do!
