Simple and Cheap Indonesia food at The Curve

If you fancy Indonesian food or simply craving for something different, head over to Gerobak restaurant at Cineleisure (e@curve). They served up a range of cheap and simple Indonesia food, such as Gado-Gado and Pecel Lele. And with just a small amount of RM 10, you are able to eat almost anything from menu.

Below are some of the pictures I took:

Arguably the best dish in Gerobak, Pecel Lele. Comes with crispy cat fish, tempeh and tofu. Oh! The sambal is so good.

This milky display of Gado-Gado is not as tasty as how it should be but if you prefer something light and less spicy, go for this. It has a good amount of vegetable and egg, for what is worth.

They have are interesting dish like Java Mee as well but try not to keep your expectation too high, as you can see, not everything is mouth-watering.

Till Then,
Recommend me some restaurant within P.J. area. Hawkers are cool too.

How To Train Your Dragon (2010)

Its been a tough few days having to anticipate on-going presentations and internship meetings but after hearing about my girlfriend's recent luck on two "How To Train Your Dragon" tickets, every tension in my body seem to died down. And as cute as dragon might be, the show definitely earns the rights to 9 over 10 ratings for animated films.

It all revolves around a Viking village, where they struggles day and night to fend off raging dragons, refusing the urge to back down. Hiccup, the chief's only son, was the only Viking that doesn't possess the mighty strength of a warrior. He spends most of his time inventing weaponry to aid his father's army only to upset his father's expectations of him, as a Viking.

But eventually, he learns the tricks in dragon taming and showed his father, the chief, a different side of dragons.

I think the moral values are worth your time. Maybe by then, hopefully we can all live together as one.

Till Then.

Daybreaker (2009)

At first, we have vampires taking over the world then romance came in where human and undead interacted, now we have vampires working as CEO and humans as farm animals. Good thing is, they eventually fed of themselves and die, which is why day breaker is a must watch, starring Ethan Hawke, Willem Dafoe and Sam Neill.

But with only five percent of human population remain, can they recover from the outbreak? Can they emerge victory after the recent success of a blood substitute? One way or the other a fight for existence will emerge. And only one race can rule the world.

Another one of the boring updates.

Like how I usually brag about uncertainty about working and career, now I begin to regret taking mass comm. After all, I'm not fit working in an environment where things get crazy and mistake get shouted with foul language.

But that isn't the scariest part. It is the fear that they instill in you that makes your mind play tricks with you. Just imagine coming to work feeling scared and constantly avoids responsibility in fear of getting yourself in trouble. Perhaps, that is what working life is all about. Survive or die.

A former lecturer of mine, who I met in the gym, told me to brace myself for situation like this and explained that such working environment is normal in the media.

I, like you and me, who got caught in the "sweet talk" of education counselor, now understands the true job scope in the media industry.

I can only prepare myself for the worst and build a resistance to bad criticism and try not to make the same situation happen twice.

Only then, you and me will blossom in this hectic industry and take on any challenges ahead. But just make sure the process of adapting doesn't change you an angry person or an insensitive person in life.

till then,
you take care!

A little update

Like the usual, I play sports in the weekend and prepare for gym the next, other than the usual things I do in college. Therefore, I can't blog like how I used to.

It's not like there's a million and one assignments to do because personally I think I'm coping with the stress well but to some point I can't help but to imagine what will happen next as I near my internship as well as working life. And thus far, things have rather been ugly.

But not everything is that bad. At first, I thought I lost my internship opportunity but after several amendments in the last semester and some lucky improvements in grades, I assume my internship like the rest. Only this time I hope things will blossom and be another one of the false dream.

Like wise, I hope things will prosper for you as well.

Till then,
Expect food pictures on the next post.

College Assignment Assistance Needed! Business Degree Student are welcomed to assist.

One of my assignment in International Media Communication requires factual and non fictional article about organization management. Particularly on how work is divided and how workers advance the corporate ladder.

But sadly, business magazine focuses on individual success and marketing rather than the methodology of each companies administration.

That's not all, even business section on newspaper prefers company growth and share over management issues.

So in other words, I'm quite lost for the moment.

I was wondering, whether you business student out there come across management articles on the web recently? If you do and his within 2009 and present, please let me know.

Your kindness will always be remembered.

Snowy Dessert House @ Sunway Pyramid

The thought of shopping at Sunway’s Pyramid Asia Avenue brought me back to the uneasy feelings in Sungai Wang Plaza. But for Pyramid’s Asia Avenue, you find a rather quiet environment that matches the excitement you get in Sungai Wang only without Ah Lian and Ah Beng touting the place. Seriously, the type of crowd isn't important. What matters is the food available in Asian inspired section s that brings out the goodness of asia culture in forms of taste and execution, which is what inspired me to try dessert specialist, Snowy.

As I study the menu, I notice a wide selection of food stuff ranging from rice, noodles and tip bits aside from its main attraction, dessert. They even Italian food for choice and juices for healthy eating. But that is not the only thing that make the place special.

The restaurant also capitalize on convenience and speed with fast moving waitress and instant set meals, which save time without having to choose each dish from the menu.

On top of that, student enjoys 10% discount.

And here are some pictures I took:

Kiwi Snowy

Italian Herbs Spaghetti

Fried Peanut Butter Sandwich

Honestly, at the end of it, I can't think of a cheaper and more fun way to eat in a place like Pyramid. 8/10 would be an appropriate rating for this outlet.

Till then,
And remember to eat girls!

Up In The Air a good watch

As I unravel the plot of Up In The Air, where George Clooney stars the main character, I realize the difficulties in sustaining jobs, especially when your family is depending on it. But rather than worry about it, we have greater problem. It is the people who come to you the next day and tell you that you’re not needed anymore that really turn you upside down, leaving a tad feeling of worthless and broken wallet down to your very soul.

Ryan (George Clooney), who works as a messenger to inform employees of their dismissal, eventually matures to a selfless and heartless person as he advances in his career.

But it didn’t take him long to realize the things he misses in life after listening to what his co-worker, Natalie said to him and the women he loved, Alex, who betrayed him.

I say, 7/10, a good movie with two different perspective in life but mainly because it was George Clooney who acted.

Till Then,
Make sure you check out Johnny Depp's latest, Alice In Wonderland.

Ministry education survey for last semester degree students

Today was supposed to be an off day for college but with the ministry of education research in motion, we needed to attend and sit for one hour survey and interview.

“By the looks of it, it could be one of the little feedback examinations on how well prepared student are for the work force.

But judging by the question given, it tests only on your attitude and confidence and not our overall talent and knowledge.”

Me and my girlfriend set side by side in the multipurpose hall for an hour and completed the test with utmost honesty.

Hopefully by then, Taylor’s would gain something from it as I strongly believe that I’ve learnt something from its degree program.

Then again, it is more than meets the eye. The survey should also cover on student’s background, like whether or not they work before they study or vice versa. This way, the government will understand why certain people excel and certain don’t. And as crucial as working experience maybe, it does give you a head start in degree programs against who did nothing.

How would the public react on the ratings will nice to see and Hopefully it would not further escalate the stereotypical assumptions on where and what is good in education.

Till then,
Work smart and read more.

Joke of the day:

The Malay: 1 Malaysia? The Chinese: I one I one (I want I want!) All Hail! 1Malaysia.

First college semester of 2010

After a month working and another month cultivating good habits, the semester finally starts. And since it is the last semester, I’ll have internship next and god knows what after that.

By right, I should be doing my internship now since I enter with a diploma but I wasn’t as fortunate as Taylor’s diploma program as they undergo a mere one and half year while I had two solid years.

Still, for what is worth, I get extra opportunity to learn and it could be a blessing in disguise, now that I realize, I have a basic performing art class, effective communication (EC), which most of my seniors didn’t go through.

Not only that, I can also take this time frame to consider what I want in life and jump into an industry half-prepared and hamper myself of coping.

But nevertheless, I hope this will be good final semester since I won't exactly be touching education anymore after this. I rather learn things the hard way and with the help of reading materials and lots of book. Yes, I love reading.

Till Then,
Have a good start.
