White or brown?

I was doing some groceries the other day. And eggs are definitely on my list (who can live without eggs?) :P
So, back in home country, most of our chicken eggs are brown unless those salted ones with white shell. I took half a dozen of eggs from the shelf and I opened the egg carton to make sure all of them are intact.
I'm a bit surprised to find them in white. I put it back and took another different brand. It's the same. I checked and checked twice to make sure those are chicken eggs.
So, out of curiosity, I googled it.

And here is what Mr Wikipedia says:
Egg shell color is caused by pigment deposition during egg formation in the oviduct and can vary according to species and breed, from the more common white or brown to pink or speckled blue-green. In general, chicken breeds with white ear lobes lay white eggs, whereas chickens with red ear lobes lay brown eggs. Although there is no significant link between shell color and nutritional value, there is often a cultural preference for one color over another. that's the explanation. Silly me...

天梯 opening theme song

It's been a while since I last got hooked on a TVB drama. The ending made me *sobs*.
And I like the theme song very much.

On a Sunday morning....

We had breakfast at Imbi market on a fine sunny Sunday morning...
It's my first time there and easily, the ever so lively and busy 'pasar pagi', become my favourite local breakfast place...
I'll let the pictures tell you what I meant...
(internal) Pork porridge


Loh mai fan

Fried carrot cake

Big slab of butter + kaya toast

Lots more food to try. Not only locals but foreigners find this place interesting as I saw some 'mat sallehs' there. Sadly, I heard that the place is going to make way for the MRT construction. Hopefully they get relocated to a better place...

050513 PRU

I bet every Malaysian is somehow affected by the GE this time round.
It's really a different atmosphere from what I remembered from the previous times. GE3 packs more flavour, feels a lot more intense, has more 'interesting' things happening...and a lot more young voters! Bravo young generation! (however, thope you guys are not just doing it out of peer pressure and influence from others....)
It is really a pity to see violence on the street even before the polling ends. Come on people, be more civilized  What will happen after tonight, we'll soon find out.
I have to admit, I am not the most patriotic person around. If you ask me, I feel that every government, current or not, will have its flaw. But I do hope there will be a change this time round.
Whoever has more votes doesn't mean they're more popular/wiser. And vice versa. Hope that everyone will take it as a lesson learnt. Another 5 years to prove credibility and give the best for the people.
I do hope to see a better future for our next generation. I hate to see the city being colonized by foreigners. I went to Kotaraya area not long ago and seriously, I have never felt so unsafe and foreign in my own country!
To a better Malaysia!
