Si Chuan Dou Hua 四川豆花饭莊, UOB Plaza, Singapore

Woah, this is quite a backdated post during February Chinese New Year when I went down to Singapore to visit my family there. The 2nd evening I was there, my uncle that live in Singapore invited my sis, bro-in-law, my mom and the children to have dinner at a place that is very high, 61st floor to be exact. Located at the top UOB Plaza 1, this outlet of Si Chuan Dou Hua 四川豆花饭莊 has one of the best view over Singapore.

View of Singapore Flyer and Sands Marina Bay from the restaurant.

I was quite hungry, so ate a lot of tidbits while waiting :p

Also, you can see tea pouring performance here.

While we are concentrating on eating, suddenly a long brass pipe will appear out of nowhere to refill your tea lol.

It's CNY, so we started with Lou Sang. The version here comes with salmon sashimi and fried salmon skins. This is the first time I tried lou sang with fried salmon skins. Yums.

Yee Sang

Husband & Wife Lungs Slice (夫妻肺片) a dish consist of beef stomachs, beef, beef, beef heart but no beef lungs. The name is so misleading lol. It's slightly spicy and a bit of tangy sweetness. Quite suitable for those that can't take spicy food but still want to get spiced :p

Husband & Wife Lungs Slice (夫妻肺片)

Stir-fried Spicy Diced Chicken (辣子鸡), this dish is definitely not for the fainthearted, not only that it is very spicy, it also will numb your tongue. But the spicier it gets the more I want to eat it. It must be my Endorphin acting up.

Stir-fried Spicy Diced Chicken (辣子鸡)

It's time to watch the chef perform. Slicing the Peking duck. To be honest, this is the first time I eat Peking.

The duck is sliced thinly with a bit of meat sticking to the duck skin. Wrap it with the rice flour wrapper with cucumber and spring onion slice. Put in a bit of the special sweet sauce. Not too bad. The rest of the duck is then taken back into the kitchen to be used for other dishes.

While waiting for that, let's move on to other dishes first. Time to cleanse the intestines with some green. Fatt Choy Hou Shi (发财好事), which actually is fatt choy (hair vege?) and dried oyster. Nothing to shout about.

Here it is, the rest of the duck meat are diced and stir-fried. Wrap it with lettuce to eat. This is quite nice.

Hong Kong Kailan in double boiled broth is a good way to balance things out with the meat I ate. I recommend this dish, it's very good.

Coincidentally Singapore Chingay 2011 is on going, so there's fireworks.

What better to end this delightful dinner with Tao Fu Fah, the name of this restaurant is named after Dou Hua, so this must be good. Yes, it is good.

Don't ask me the price because I couldn't afford it :P

P.S. There's also a branch in Malaysia in Park Royal Hotel. So, if you are interested but don't want to travel so far to Singapore, then it is a good option.

Our World, Their War

Receiving the coordinates of the location of the Ultimate Movie Card. This is the key to open the portal from Cybertron to Earth. The Autobots are protecting it in a secure area disguised as a cinema name Golden Screen Cinema in Mid Valley, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I have to infiltrate this area to sabotage the security system there so that my fellow Decepticons will be able to take the Ultimate Movie Card without much trouble.

There's no use for you to guard the Ultimate Movie Card, Optimus Prime. It will soon falls into our hand.

All will be destroy!

"Laserbeak, Ravage, and Rumble starts infiltration at once, Buzzsaw and Frenzy create diversion to lured the Autobots out into the mine fields that Starscream has setup", I commanded my minions. If the Autobots fell for the trap, it will be the end of Earth. Once the portal from Cybertron is open, Unicorn will be able to make his way to Earth in a short time and then devour Earth and turn it into a lot of EnerCubes. Galvatron will be very pleased with this. Muahahahahaha.

The goody two shoes Bumblebee will fall.

Now all I have to do is wait for the signal from my minions, and then I'll broadcast the attack signal to my fellow Decepticons and that's the end for you Autobots!

But all this might change because of these two men...

I Will Come As Sammo Hung to HyypTV Bloggers Party

Oh. It's been a while that I didn't take part in any bloggers event from Nuffnang. So, to take part in this party for the celebration of UniFi’s 1st Anniversary with 60,000 Hypp Subscriptions.

If I were to get invited to the party, I'll come dressed up as Sammo Hung. The reason is quite simple, I won't have to do much because my size is almost the same as him lol. Also, I admired him to be a very professional movie actor. He do most of his own stunts and fighting scene, even with his large size he can very very agile.

He still continued to contribute to Hong Kong movie by not only acting but doing the choreography of the fighting scences too even though by now he can retire and live a very comfortable life. He just recently won the Best Choreography award for the movie Ip Man 2 from the 30th Hong Kong Film Awards.

Next, why I deserve to be invited to this exclusive bloggers’ party? Quite simple too, I am one of the 60,000 happy HyypTV subscribers when I subscribe to UNIFI VIP5 package last December. I love that I can watch the local TV stations through HyypTV in crystal clear picture without the distortion that I got when I was using aerial antenna.

I am so happy that from 24th March to 30th April I get to watch all the 26 HyppTV premium Channels for free. Some of my favourite premium channels are BBC Lifestyle (MasterChef series), BBC Knowledge (Top Gear), Fox Crime HD (CSI, Bones) and Universal HD (House). I might subscribe to one or two of the premium channels after the free viewing ends. More good news is that Royal Wedding of HRH Prince William & Kate Middleton LIVE on BBC Knowledge. So being a loyal customer to UNIFI and HyypTV, I deserve to be invited :p

If HyypTV will be able to get the license for ESPN HD too then I think there will be more people who'll subscribe to this. ;)

Ninja Joe, The Gardens

After buying my new digital camera, which is Nikon Coolpix S8100 from the Nikon 10th Anniversary Convention in Mid Valley Convention Hall, it was already quite late. Feeling hungry because I haven't had dinner yet. I passed by Ninja Joe and decided to try it out since I read a lot about it from food blogs. Also wanted to try out my new camera :p

It's kind of hard that in a shopping mall in Malaysia one can find pork burger. I saw the picture on food blogs and found that the portion of the pork burger is not very big.

Sad to say that the portion is really very small. For the price I am paying (RM 5.50++ for a solo burger and add RM3.90++ for fries+drink), it's not really a value meal. I found that the pork patty is a bit dry but the taste is not too bad. A look at the burger makes me think of a malnutrition hamburger. Well, I chose the most basic one. On the menu you can choose more slices of pork burger.

Too add salt on the injury, the fries are cold and soggy. They use the thick size cut which is not very good when served cold. I don't think I'll come again unless their pork burger is bigger and the fries are served hot and crispy.

Rating: 2.5/5

P.S. If you can proof that your name is Joe, you'll get RM1 off.

Hennessy Artistry 2011 Kick Off at The Opera, Sunway

Oh my, oh my, oh my. So many great events this month. Just before the end of April there will be one last great event for you party animals and clubbers out there. Yes, it's the first Hennessy Artistry event for year 2011. As of last year, the venue for this kick off event will be held in Opera, Sunway Pyramid again.

Last year we have Bunkface perform live at the event. Rocking the house down yo!

Of course, free flow of Hennessy mix. I wondered will there be new mix this year.

Ah, this year won't be able to see Zoe at the event like last year because she's shifted in Canada for good. T_T

The line-up this year are:

Leading the line-up at the upcoming Hennessy Artistry party is Australian electro/house duo, Vandalism which comprises of DJ/Producer Andy Van (previously of Madison Avenue fame) and vocalist/songwriter Cassie Van. With distinctive sounds and head turning live performances, Vandalism has over the past two years toured across the globe playing in gigs in London, Miami, Ibiza, Moscow, Greece, South Korea, and Canada. Making their debut on the H-Artistry stage, Australia’s leading electro/dance outfit is ready to infect the dance floors of Voodoo and The Opera come April with Andy tearing up the decks while Cassie belts out some show stopping sexy vocals.

Staying true to Hennessy Artistry’s innovative approach in blending musical genres of the East and West, the upcoming party will also see Malaysia’s very own up and coming rock sensations, Kyoto Protocol conquering the stage. Formed by a group of angsty but fun-loving guys, they combine their varied influences ranging from The Clash to Queens of the Stone Age to create an eclectic mix of punk, soul and electro. With an array of accolades already in their caps, these rock darlings will be looking to conquer the famed Hennessy Artistry stage through some of the most infectious and addictive tunes the country has ever heard.

Joining them at the party are two of the hottest female DJs in town, Miss Eva T and DJ Lizz. Together, they form Spinderella, a hip-hop, R&B, electro/house spinning duo that churns out tunes which are unique and fresh. Ready to rock any crowd off the ground, Spinderella has set their sights in bringing the house down with their signature club, electro, and house tunes.

Oh, for people in Penang, Hennessy Artistry will be happening on 28th April at Voodoo, Upper Penang Road, Penang.

As for me, I'll be going to The Opera, Sunway on 30th April.

For those that want to go to Hennessy Artistry this month end, please register here and you might win the passes. Please like the Hennessy Malaysia Like page also because this them a RFID technology will be used as the entry pass that will load your Facebook into the RFID wristband. Follow their Twitter too because you might be able to win VIP passes through their on going contest.

Johnnie Walker Black Circuit Lounge 2011

It's back! This time much it is much bigger and grander than last year. Yes, it's Johnnie Walker Black Circuit Lounge 2011. While last year, the party is limited within a building, this time it's a whole big ground setup with a huge tent near Palace of the Golden Horses. The only downside is the distance of the venue to my house. Well, I "Don't Drink and Drive" anyway, not much of a problem :p

It's free flow of Johnnie Walker whole night long. There were servicing staffs going around with Johnnie Walker mixes. Each table have two bottles of Johnnie Walker plus mixer. Finished a bottle? No worry, just ask the staff there to refill you with a whole new bottle. Wah lau, where to get wor.

The whole night there are different DJs spinning the wheel with cool club mix. Of course the star DJ of the night DJ Bento is the last one to spin the music.

The beautiful Hannah Tan came back all the way from Japan to host this event (or maybe she's scare of the radiation :p, just kidding Hannah)

Hannah: You're so funny Simon, heeheehee.

Besides the music, the booze, the DJs and the host. The best thing is of course the crowd there. I met quite a lot of beautiful bloggers there that night.

My first victim, Michelle :p

Sorry Louise, I am bad in recognizing faces.

Jamie Liew, nice coloured cons.

Nuffy Michelle and her baby, Nicholas

All the way from Sabah, Karen is in da house.

Jacqkie, why you look so garang? :p

Ah, I'm feeling so Fresh

Welcome to the Cin City.

Instead of the Chong sisters, I took pic with the Chua Sisters.

More bacons girls!

Christie, I'll remember from now on.

Looking yummilicious there Rebecca.

Such gorgeous eyes you got there, Esther.

Finally, meet Esther's BFF, Shantee.

When are we going makan in Pan Heong again, Hitomi?

Jessy, why always cover your left eye? :p

My Nikon Coolpix S8100 battery died on me. So, have to make use of my Nokia E7 phone camera.

Miss Keju Tan with her Mimimaos look?

Audrey, you look taller here.

Where have you been, Jestina? So long didn't bump into you adi.

Please don't copyher.

Hello there, Wilee.

Too bad, Lewis Hamilton have to make his practice rounds and can't come to this great party. He apologized to us through the video.

"Enjoy yourself people." - Lewis Hamilton.

It's a great event, one of the best I've been to yet this year. What? I only take picture with girls, you said? Of course not. Wait for my next post. It's all about guys I met at Johnnie Walker Balck Circuit Lounge 2011.

I can come to this prestigious event because of my blog. Love blogging and technology? Learn more at accredited degrees.

Remember! "Never Drink and Drive"
