Officially 29 & Officially a Citizen

It is the second day of July, the second day into the 2nd half of 2011. And it is the second day of me being 29. Having to say that I will be 30 next year, I'm actually quiet anxious to enter the stage of 30s. 30 means a lot to a man. As the saying goes, a man's life starts at 30. I suppose you will be bound by so many responsibilities. You are demanded to have house, car and a life time partner by then. I'm nothing close to that yet. If I describe my 20s as full of excitement, adventures and discovery then the next chapter will have to be stability and the sense of security.    

I believe and hoping that I'm moving on the right path towards the chapter. A recap of the first half of 2011, I wasn't doing bad. I started to see some increment in my bank account as well as some saving. I'm glad with that.  And to reward myself, I got myself a Citizen Eco Drive Chronograph watch. With the original price at 4 figures, it certainly isn't cheap to my standard. I know there are heaps out there who spend 5 figures on a watch. As I was considering Seiko or Citizen at a budget of RM1k. I opted for Eco drive technology despite the strong commercial marketing that Seiko display on. Hopefully this babe is going to serve me some good time.

And to round it off my half a year recap, I will like to express my gratitude and thanks to all those that have celebrated my 29th birthday with me. Appreciated all the dinners, lunch, cakes and gifts. I'm so blessed to have you all !!!

Gokuraku Ramen @ Mid Valley

I can't deny the matter of fact that I love pretty much anything in soupy form. And of course, Japanese Ramen soup will be an essential work day lunch choice. What is better than a 50% discount on all Ramen dishes in this newly open Gokuraku Ramen @ Mid Valley !! The restaurant is on its second day of business and hence the promotion deal. Though the ambiance is pretty stylish, rather like a lounge but it was pack and stuffy. The wait staffs were trying hard to impress but they still mess up with the order one or two, here and there. 

Okay, I'm not so sure if ramen is the most economic noodle soup ever. Well, in fact it isn't at all !! I guess what makes a good bowl of ramen is the Tonkotsu broth. A good bowl does take significant amount of effort and timing to boil. While, to taste that bowl of goodness is very much down to a person preference. It is like Godiva chocolate as the premium and mass production Cadbury as the sub class. Both can be just ordinary chocolate to a non lover. 

To the left : Gokuraku Miso Ramen @ RM20.90 (Normal Price) - Mince meats, cabbages in Miso soup. Generous portion.
To the right : Spicy Tonkotsu Ramen @ RM17++  - A slice of Jap Char Siew, Chinese cabbages and some unknown red vegs. The taste is on the light side.
Bottom : Gyoza (Pork Dumplings) @ RM7.90 - Ordinary. 

While, this is my Ultimate Tonkotsu Ramen @ RM20.90 with 3 slices of char siew, whole egg, seaweed and vegs. I presented this bowl of goodness a very high regard. The Tonkotsu broth in fact of the best I ever tasted. It is rich and flavorful in a good sense not overly salty as some other ramen joint. The splash of garlic oil has indeed enlightened the whole dining experience. A++

Will I come back again ? I will make it an occasional savor like once in a couple of weeks to avoid extra burden on my wallet LOL !!

Bao Bao Pan Mee - Aman Suria

Bao Bao Pan Mee is one of the established Pan Mee joint in the Klang Valley. There is one in my vicinity, Aman Suria. But I have never been a fan of Bao Bao. I find their soup version to be rather uninspiring. It contains rich MSG taste. Unlike Cha Cha Pan Mee which located just a few shop lot down the street. Cha Cha's version make of rich hard boil broth. And that is exactly what I expect from soup version. However, Bao Bao's dry spicy garlic version managed to impress me. It consists of mince meats, dry garlic & chillies as well as Bao Bao's one and only crunchy fish crackers. Dry version comes with a bowl of soup with an egg.   

Priced @ RM5.80 for a small size bowl. It is a rather generous portion. I do find the noodles to be a little dry and difficult to mix around with the ingredients. Perhaps a splash of chili oil will show improvements. Their crunchy fish crackers created such a great combination with the soft springy noodles.

 Thought it is named spicy garlic. It isn't that spicy even to my standard (I have low tolerant on spiciness). If you need that extra kick, feel free to help yourself with the four kinds of chillies they provide.

The sperm collector machine !! WTF

This is what I came across on Daily Chili today. A sperm collector machine !! Or I should rather portrait it as a bloody Sex Toy for mens. Read on and justify on your own !

"Gentlemen, you need not sit in private and be "stimulated" to produce semen samples for your doctor anymore.

A Chinese company has invented a sperm collector machine, which was demonstrated at this year's China International Medical Equipment Fair.

SanWe, the maker has described it as "a device [that] can simulate the movement of a woman's vagina".

Read the product description on its official site:"It can simulate vaginal environment through massage, twitching, sucking [and] vibration, [and can] act upon the human penis, which can make semen collection fast and safe. It is the best clinical equipment of sperm collection."


Damn genius !! It actually makes dull sperm donation a much more interesting event to participate. I'm pretty sure there is no more sperm shortage in the hospital. Perhaps I shall register myself as a donor soon.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X8

I have been using Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 for 2 weeks now. I decided to give myself an upgrade after been served by SE G900 for a year and 2 months. It has almost become a trend that everyone you know is either own a touch screen phone or an ala blackberry. It just has to be a smart phone !! SE Xperia X8 priced at RM550, I thought that was a steal. Apart from the qwerty touch pad that I was struggling to get used to (but now getting better), I find X8 to be a vary handy phone. Boosted by Android as the operating system, you have a huge range of apps to download from Android market. Mostly are free !! The only complain will be the fixed focus camera quality. But you cannot expect a perfection with such a low price. Yes, I'm happy with my phone. Who say you need an Iphone when you have a much cheaper X8??
