battle of the bubble...tea

What's with all the bubble tea shops everywhere nowadays? They're growing like mushroom after the rain.
With Chatime and Gong Cha from Taiwan, you can see people lining up to get their share of the drink. While Chatime has a lot more choices compared to Gong Cha, I still prefer the latter.
From the way they make the drink-with the milk on top, to the taste - you can actually taste the smooth milk combined with the refreshing strong taste of the tea. Chatime is a bit too normal. I discover Gong Cha in Mid Valley Gardens by accident as it's not really located at those prime areas. One should try their signature - green tea as well as winter melon.
So, go get your cup of bubblelicious tea now.

Food review:Celcius, Fahrenheit 88

Celcius is a restaurant + bar. Located in the middle of the golden triangle, it's a crowded bar at night. But during the day, it was quite a quiet restaurant.
Food served are not that bad but they are not excellent also. We bought the MyDeal voucher, so it ain't that expensive. But if I were to spent on the normal price for the food, I'll think twice. Here's what we had (if I remembered correctly):
Crispy royal romaine tossed in Caesar dressing topped with garlic crouton, crispy beef bacon, boiled egg and shaved parmagiano
Creamy wild array of porcini, girolles and portobello with shaved parmagiano and pesto oil
Chargrilled chicken breast with honey mustard, roasted vegetable skewers with balsamic vinaigrette and mashed potato
Crispy battered fish fillet served with steak fries, chick pea cur-sal and tartar sauce
 Hot chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream
Mango flavoured custard with caramelised sugar

Good and Bad

Quote of the day:
I would rather do the right thing and be cursed than do the popular but wrong thing and be applauded ~ Tun Hussein Onn, third Prime Minister of Malaysia.

There's good news and there's bad news. Good news is I won't be traveling in June due to project testing delayed, bad news  is I wont be able to see Melbourne in Autumn (well at least the end of autumn)...
I've been there in summer, will be there in Winter and spring, so the only season I missed out is autumn...:(
I love autumn, though I've not actually experienced it. Falling leaves which sets the perfect scenery for some photography shots and the cool weather (not too cold). Sigh...

And I am going to be away this year on someone's birthday in August. *sob*
Well, on the bright side, I'm expecting my new toy this Saturday. Any guesses what it'll be?
*hint:I have the talent but don't have the right tool*

No prize for guessing who's the producers for this movie...

Post Towerthon

Results are out. I scored a 37.08 mins. Not bad eh? But not great either. At least I don't have muscle pain the next day.
This is my 2nd Towerthon and 3rd time scaling up KL Tower. The second time was the most memorable. It was unexpected as it was a challenge in one of the treasure hunt I joined. We were quite shocked when we're asked to climb the 2058 steps of the tower to get our clues.
Anyway, one thing I realized about Malaysia - we are so poor in crowd control. We waited soooooo looooooonggggg to come down after the race, even longer than actually going up the stairs. That aside, we were being pushed into the lifts. No queues, no authority to control the crowd, no civilization. Imagine hot, sweating bodies, pushing at each other, waiting for the supposedly 4 lifts (which 1 malfunctioned) for easily half an hour.
It was bad. We should have just taken the staircase (which was only open up after they realized that the crowd is out of control).
Sigh, so another Towerthon for me next year? After the bad experience, maybe not.

eat, poo, eat, poo

Me:The slimming specialist said that a healthy person should shit as many times as he/she eats a day. For example, if I eat three meals, I should be shitting three times a day. If this is not the case, it means my body needs detoxification.

Mum:Then that healthy person must be very busy everyday. Eat, then shit, eat again, shit again.


But true also...Makes sense.
