|今年生日與朋友聚餐飯局睇戲, 同時都有朋友透過facebook及whatsapp留言祝賀, 特別借呢個機會再次多謝大家嘅祝賀.. 今年可算係非常幸福, 本以為「年事已高」就唔會點收到禮物啦, 誰不知竟然陸續收到多份驚喜!! 雖然話心意最重要, 禮物都係其次, 但係能夠實實在在有份生日禮物喺你手上, 個感覺係更加窩心.. 以上生日禮物確實令我既開心又感動, 當然我係依慣例不便公開送禮者係邊位啦, 不過內心係非常之感謝同珍惜嘅!! 多謝晒各位親愛嘅朋友, 令我再有多個愉快難忘嘅生日~~ :)|
|the birthday this year i gathered with friends for food and movie, and at the same time received greetings from friends through faceboook and whatsapp, i would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone again for the birthday greetings.. i regard myself to be very blessed this year, while i did not expect presents due to my old age, there came surprises one after another!! though we often say the heart is more important than the presents, to have a real birthday present on our hands somehow makes us feel more warmth in heart.. all the presents above surely make me happy and moved me, as usual i am not going to reveal who are the givers but deep in my heart i truly appreciate everything given!! thank you so much my beloved friends for making yet another birthday so unforgettable~~ :)|

|自從舊年經歷過某朋友購買嘅groupon所引起嘅不愉快事件之後, 我對於裡面所謂令人咋舌嘅大優惠都存在住重重疑慮.. 直至多日前無意中見到呢一個意大利品嘗式任食晚餐, 我分析後認為, 折扣算係合理, 再者酒店餐廳點都唔會差到邊啩.. 而且我好喜歡佢哋呢個品嘗式(degustation)嘅概念, 所以就孤註一擲, 一於買佢作為我嘅生日飯局!! 阿彌陀佛, 結果食物同服務都真係好唔錯, 冇令到我失望連連, 甚至偶有驚喜添.. 慶幸呀, 我呢個處女團購未算失敗之作, 最重要係生日飯局繼續開心, 哈哈!! 至於品嘗式任食晚餐係咩一回事呢?? 嗯, 雖然我食得出唔係正宗意大利餐, 但係十道好精緻好的骰嘅菜一個跟住一個上桌, 感覺有啲似係食緊西式懷石料理, 哈哈!! 都好啦, 至少今年嘅生日飯局有啲唔同~~ :)|
■ [後註] 為照片質素抱歉, 因為以手機拍攝, 而且餐廳環境昏暗..
|after since the bad experience we had with a groupon one friend bought last year, i was rather skeptical about all the unbelievable attractive offers.. until i saw this Italian Degustation A La Carte Buffet Dinner the other day, i kind of analyzed and thought to myself, justifiable discounts and hotel restaurant won't be too bad right?? and i quite like their idea of having the main dishes in degustation buffet style.. hence, i placed a bet and bought it for my birthday dinner.. thank god, food wise and service wise, it turned out to be quite good and didn't disappoint me at all, instead surprises at times.. glad, my virgin groupon purchase wasn't a failure, most importantly the bet didn't spoil my birthday, haha!! so, degustation a la carte buffet, how was it like?? errr, though not authentically italian i tasted, but having 10 delicate-looking bite-size courses served one at a time, it somehow felt like some down-to-earth haute cuisine, haha!! well, at least something different this year~~ :)|
■ [note] apologize for the photo quality, as they were taken using my phone and the restaurant was quite dim..

|喺馬來西亞, 本人覺得應該係得戲院同某些表演場合, 先有「電話靜音」呢個不成文規定.. 上個月去東京, 先知道日本人連搭地鐵都要靜音, 甚至息咗部手機.. 我覺得咁樣好喎, 始終地鐵內都算係封閉場所, 電話噪音的確會干擾其他乘客囉.. 我個人就尚可接受電話鈴聲, 不過講到話由手機內歌曲或影視或游戲所發出嘅聲音(有啲仲要開盡音量!!), 我係接受唔到囉.. 雖然唔係經常遇到, 不過都經歷過數次類似嘅情況, 乜啲人可以咁自私㗎咩?? 仲有呀, 最近手機chat apps大行其道, 有新訊息入嚟部手機就不停咁喺度叮叮叮, 唔覺得煩㗎咩?? 不過講到最想星佢一巴嘅, 就係啲人連打字都要有聲!! 一趟車程係咁不停發短訊, 就一路不停咁嘀嘀嘀, 你老味吖 @#$%^& 唔可以mute咗啲apps, buttons同keyboard㗎咩??|
|in malaysia, i guess only in cinemas and some performing halls that we find unwritten rules of the need to mute our phones.. during my trip to tokyo last month, i found out that the japanese mute their phones or even switch off their phones in the train.. i think this is good, afterall the train is also considered an enclosed space, noises from phones would likely disturb other passengers.. i personally am still fine with ringtones, but when it comes to noises from songs or videos or games in the phones (some even switch to maximum volume!!), i am not tolerable.. though not often but i've experienced such situations a few times, can't those people be more considerate?? what's more, due to the commons of chat apps on phones, there are people whose phones keep on beeping when new messages arrived, don't they find it irritating?? and what makes me wanna slap that person is that, even typing on the keyboard creates noise!! the whole journey keep on typing message and the phone keeps on tinkling, WTF @#$%^&~ can't they just mute the apps, buttons and keyboard??|

|洗頭嘅時候, 我喜歡有好多泡泡, 咁樣個感覺比較真實啲(未必係乾淨啲).. 以前以為要多泡泡就要用好多洗頭水, 其實只會係浪費囉.. 大家一陣返到去, 可以實驗一下呢一個慳節省洗頭水方法.. 首先用兩三滴洗頭水, 隨意搓下整個頭大概十秒鐘, 沖水之後再用兩三滴洗頭水認真洗頭.. 你會發覺, 頭髮經過一輪所謂嘅pre-wash, 將表面一層油積同污垢洗去之後, 其實只需要非常少量嘅洗頭水就已經可以好有效洗頭喇, 而且仲會有好多泡泡添喎!! 呢個方法係多年前睇報紙見到嘅, 或者各位有更精明嘅方法否?? 家陣樣樣嘢都起價, 不妨分享一下, 造福人群呀~~ :)|
[後註] 我頭髮短, 所以大概兩滴洗頭水就夠.. 如果閣下頭髮長, 可能需要用多幾滴同埋pre-wash耐啲.. 份量同時間冇特定標準, 自己喜歡啦~~ :)
|i like to have lots of foam when i am shampooing my hair, it feels more real (though not necessarily cleaner) this way.. i used to think that to have more foam then more shampoo is needed, but instead that's just wasteful.. why not try to experiment this "shampoo saving" method when you are back home later?? start with 2-3 drops of shampoo, rub evenly on your hair for about 10 seconds, rinse your hair and then use another 2-3 drops of shampoo to "officially" wash your hair.. you will noticed that, after the so-called pre-wash, you just need very little shampoo because the grease and dirt on the surface of your hair has already been washed away, making it easier to shampoo and there is never less foam either!! read this from the newspaper years back, perhaps anyone may have better idea on this?? things are surely getting more and more expensive, sharing your tips would be beneficial to all readers for sure~~ :)|
[note] since my hair is short, i just need about 2 drops of shampoo.. if you have longer hair, you may need more shampoo and longer pre-wash.. this is not science and so no exact amount or time is correct, just follow what your heart tells you~~ :)

|求學時期我一個星期返學六日, 而且就得一對校鞋咁大把, 所以禮拜日就成為我必定以及唯一可以洗校鞋嘅日子喇.. 唔該, 我真係有乖乖地洗鞋㗎, 唔係求其喺教室拎支粉筆「洗鞋」就算㗎, 哈哈!! 所以每次都希望星期日天氣晴朗烈日高照, 咁對校鞋就可以乾啦.. 不過當然冇嘢係永遠完美嘅, 天有陰晴圓缺, 落起雨嚟我就要煩惱應該點樣將對校鞋整乾.. 如此情況, 大家係唔係有點似曾相識咁呢?? :p|
|i studied six days a week and only had one pair of shoes during my schooldays, so sunday was always the default and only day i could wash my school shoes.. hello, i did wash my shoes and not just grabbed chalks in the classroom to "clean" my shoes okay?? haha.. because of that, i always hoped for sunny day with bright sun on sundays (is that why it is called SUNday??) so that my shoes could dry completely.. of course, nothing is ever perfect right?? for sure there were cloudy and even rainy sundays, and that were when i was panic about getting my shoes ready for school on monday.. rendezvous huh?? :p|

|我們都愛朱古力係唔係?? 當然呢個擺滿朱古力嘅雪櫃唔係我㗎啦(雖然我好希望佢係, 哈哈!!).. 你係唔係一個習慣將所有朱古力都擺入雪櫃, 或者有咁嘅思想嘅人呢?? 嗯, 其實我最討厭咁樣喇, 我喜歡朱古力入口即溶嘅感覺, 如果擺入雪櫃就肯定硬到好似舊石頭一樣, 超級掃興!! 其實只要唔擺喺熱源之處, 室溫之下絕對可以完好保存, 更何況依家大多數朱古力都加咗穩定劑, 冇咁易溶囉.. 當然嗰啲貴價高級朱古力我就唔知喇, 買唔起嘛我, 呵呵!! 講開又講, 我會將開封咗嘅零食擺入雪櫃就唔會漏風, 就快過期嘅麵包放入冰格就可以食得耐啲(其實拎去烘咗之後, 都同樣美味).. 好喇, 見到呢一個雪櫃嘅朱古力, 我要去拎啲嚟到慢慢享用喇~~ :D|
|we love chocolates don't we?? but of course this fridge full of chocolates isn't mine (though i wish it was, haha!!).. are you one who would habitually, or having such mentality to, place all your chocolates in the fridge?? hmmm, i actually hate that, i love chocolates to melt in my mouth, but if it's kept in the fridge, it gets all harden and tastes like rock, potong stim lah!! as long as you keep it away from direct heat, it will survive perfectly under room temperature, moreover most chocolates are added with stabilizer nowadays so they don't melt easily.. of course i have no idea about expensive chocolates from chocolatiers, i can't afford to buy those, haha!! BTW, i do keep opened packets of snacks in the fridge so that they won't go stale, or bread expiring soon in the freezer so they can be kept longer (after all put them in toast and they are still good).. okay, looking at this fridge full of chocolates, i'm going to get some to enjoy now~~ :D|
