On My Birthday
首先同大家聲明, 今日并非我生日, 只係今日想同大家分享下六月十七嗰日有咩搞啫.. 下面個表基本上當日嘅流程, 時間當然係大概啦.. 係簡單到冇朋友, 不過我生日真係過得如此簡單噃!! 年紀唔細啦, 冇乜花臣搞啦.. :)
let me first clarify that today is not my birthday, just that i am sharing what i did on 17th June.. the table below is basically a rundown of events on the day, the time of course are just approximate.. super-duper simple but those were really all i did on my birthday!! not young anymore lah, just keep things simple will do.. :)

一頓豐盛嘅早餐為是日作一個美好開始, 近年來好似已成為我生日嘅指定動作.. 呢一類早餐我無任歡迎, 多謝友人請客!! :)
starting a beautiful day with a big breakfast, and this has been like my birthday "tradition" for the recent years.. my kind of breakfast, thanks to my friend for the scrumptious treat!! :)
11:30
友人提議去新開嘅三井Outlet Park, 去到發覺唔係幾多嘢睇, 因為好多店都仲未開.. 大家見到下面嘅標價, 大概知道(大部份)啲嘢其實平唔到去邊啦, 包括(我認為應該免費嘅)泊車費.. 去過, 見識過, 空手而歸.. :D
friend suggested going to the newly opened Mitsui Outlet Park and so we went, but not much to see as many are still not opened.. look at the price tag below and you will realized (most of the) things are not cheap at all, including (i thought should be free) parking.. been there, seen it and back with empty hands.. :D
17:30
逗留兩個鍾度啦, 之後就返回市區食個平常晏, 之後去gym流身汗, 下午返公司做啲濕星嘢.. 同時間意意思思食個蛋糕仔咁啦, 今年有朋友送咗好靚嘅生日蛋糕俾我呀, 另一篇貼再俾大家欣賞.. :)
stayed for about two hours before going back to KL, had a normal lunch and then to the gym to sweat out a bit, and then back to office in the late afternoon to settle some minor stuffs.. at the same time had a little cake that was given by a friend, a set of very beautiful cupcakes which i shall show you in another post.. :)
19:30
我知大家最期待係咩嘢.. 是日晚餐食日本嘢-份壽司係掃描某條碼後餐厅送嘅, 其他係我叫嘅定食之中啲嘢食嚟.. 好好味, 好滿足, 再次感謝友人請客!! :)
okay, i know what you are waiting for.. dinner was japanese - the sushi was on the house after we scanned some barcode, and the rest were from the bento i ordered.. very nice and burps, satisfying too, thank you to my friend for the birthday treat!! :)
21:30
喺屋企, 我哋其實冇慶祝生日嘅習慣.. 不過我家姐就烚咗兩隻「紅」雞蛋俾我, 你話邊有紅?? 其實佢唔記得染紅兩隻蛋, 後尾先一個意思搽咗喲紅粉上去, 所以先有兩隻「藝術蛋」啦.. 都幾特別嘛, 哈哈!!
back home, we don't really celebrate birthdays.. but my sister made me two "red" eggs, and "red??" you wonder.. forgotten to dye the eggs while cooking, she quickly spread some red dye on the eggs with her fingers later, hence this "artistic" eggs with abstract "paintings".. kind of special, hahaha!!

The McD Minions Figurines Collection
過去嘅四個星期係頻頻幫襯麥當勞嘅一個月, 每個禮拜四早晨都會風雨無阻地去麥當勞買(幾份)開心套餐, 為嘅就係要佢嘅Minions玩偶.. 大家仲記唔記得兩年前, 麥當勞啲Minions喺短短兩三個鐘內被搶購一空, 仲有人為咗爭買而動粗添!! 開心嘅係, 吸取上次嘅經驗, 呢一次麥當勞準備咗足夠玩具應對需求, 唔駛排餐死都可以買到.. 感恩囉, 等我可以輕輕鬆鬆咁就收集齊一整套十隻, 每個仲有服裝添!! 正呀~~ :)
it was a month of heavy McD'ing for the past four weeks, where i went to McD every Thursday morning without failed, grabbed (some sets of) Happy Meals in order to get the Minions figurines that comes with it.. do you still remember two years ago, all McD Minions were already sold out within a couple of hours and people even fought for the toys?? the happy thing is that McD learned from that past experience and stocked enough toys to face the demand, no need to queue like crazy but one can get the toys without much hassle.. good for me, i can easily collect one whole set of these Minions figurines in costumes!! cool~~ :)

Drinks from Vending Machines, Part 1 of 2 : Japan
Drinks from Vending Machines in Japan, Lots of Varieties
當我在日本嘅時候, 每日有件事係我好期待嘅, 就係去搵售賣機買嘢飲.. 補充水份係當然㗎啦, 其實真正原因係因為售賣機在日本實在係太過普遍喇.. 雖然係普遍, 但係周圍都係, 對我呢個鄉下仔嚟講就係奇觀.. 雖然係普遍, 但係所售賣嘅飲品種類繁多, 可有花多眼亂嘅感覺.. 好嘅, 以人類可以明白嘅語言再講多㳄, 就係普遍但不普通, 哈哈!! 所以每日都有呢個小小嘅「行程」去發掘未試過嘅嘢飲, 我樂在其中㗎, 同一樣嘢飲, 可能同一條街所有售賣機都唔會再有㗎.. 上面張相嗰啲只係小部份, 睇下啲包裝幾精彩~~

返到嚟馬來西亞, 就悶好多喇.. 售賣機唔普遍, 選擇又少, 賣嚟賣去都係嗰幾個品牌.. 我好少有興趣, 除非真係渴到一定要飲嘢, 而且要就腳囉..
when i was in Japan, one thing that i looked forward to everyday was buying drinks from vending machines.. of course replenishing fluid was one thing, but the real reason was because vending machines are ubiquitous in Japan.. though ubiquitous, the ubiquity was in fact impressive to a kampung boy like me, and though ubiquitous, the splendid varieties of drinks sold in the machines did not make a single brand seems omnipresent.. okay, in human understandable words, ubiquitous but not ordinary, haha!! hence, i enjoy buying new types of drinks everyday and this was one exciting little "itinerary" to explore new ones to try, one that may not be available again in the other machines down the same street.. those in the photo above are just a handful, look at the beautiful packaging..

back in Malaysia, i guess it is so much more boring.. not only vending machines are scarce, choices are so little and even the products sold are almost identical.. i rarely got the interest but of course at times when i really need something to drink, i still get one from the machines if it is convenient..

BUFFET: History, Like & Dislike
Buffet Food and Varieties
你喜歡食自助餐嗎?? 我絕對係個自助餐粉絲, 因為我鍾意唔同嘢每樣都食啲, 換句話說講, 係貪心, 呵呵!!
歷史
喜惡
個案
總結
仲記得我嘅第一次自助餐體驗係小學畢業嗰一日.. 我哋幾個最好嘅朋友, 喺其中一位即興建議下, 去咗學校附近嘅Forliday Inn, 以RM7(當時12歲及以下兒童價)食咗一頓豐盛嘅自助下午茶.. 就得我哋幾個, 係冇大人帶㗎, 幾大膽!! 之但係當年吉隆坡嘅治安狀況, 幾個小朋友周圍逛, 其實都唔係大問題嘅..
do you like buffet?? i am certainly a big fans of buffet, because i am one who love varieties and a little bit of everything.. in other words, i am greedy, hehe!! :p
History
Like & Dislike
Real Case
Wrap Up
i still remember my first buffet experience was on the graduation day of primary school.. a few of us close friends, with the impromptu suggestion from one of us, went to the Forliday Inn nearby our school and paid RM7 (price then for children 12 and below) for an afternoon tea buffet.. just us and no adults bringing, how daring!! but of course, KL back then was so much safer for kids to wander around the city..

A Post-Birthday Rant
Doraemon cupcakes for birthday
係嘅, 噚日係小弟生日(之所以呢個博叫做[SK/0617]囉), 不過大家唔須要祝我belated happy birthday(親愛的, 記住係belated happy birthday唔係happy belated birthday, 我個birthday冇late到, 係你個祝賀late啫, 哈哈!!), 認真嘅.. 如果你有跟我呢個博, 應該都知我往年都一定會寫篇貼文同大家「宣布」當天是我生日, 呵呵!! 但係今年我就決定唔咁樣做喇, 而且我又喺Facelook上設定不顯示自己嘅生日.. 因為所以, 同往年比較, 今年生日只有約二成人祝我生日快樂.. 好明顯地, 我的確冇乜真正有心嘅朋友, 哇哈哈哈!!

千真萬確, 證實我哋大家已經十分依靠提示功能「提醒」我哋各種事項日子.. 之後就非常方便地打幾個字, 甚至㩒一個button就可以全自動送出生日祝賀俾朋友.. 最後得返壽星一個Like, 整個祝賀過程就此完滿結束.. 唔好誤會, 我唔係要喺度投訴啲乜嘢, 都一把年紀, 實在冇咁好氣去在乎.. 都唔好因為你錯過咗我嘅生日而覺得不是, 傻啦, 我都一樣錯過好多囉, 大家都明白其實係現時個趨勢啫.. 點都好, 仲有人記得我生日, 祝我生日快樂, 甚至買禮物俾我, 我其實已受寵若驚.. 多謝晒你哋呢班有心人, 我仲感動緊哚, 你哋嘅心意我非常珍惜.. :)
okay, it WAS my birthday yesterday (hence this blog is named [SK/0617]), but you don't have to wish me a belated happy birthday (and please, it is belated happy birthday and NOT happy belated birthday my dear, my birthday never late, only your birthday wish, hehe!!) here, seriously.. if you have been following my blog, you know i used to be very high profile (and thick-face) to write a special post to "announce" publicly that it was my birthday that day, hahaha!! this year, i've decided not to do so, and in fact i have also change the setting on my Facelook to not show my birthday.. as a result of this, i have like only 20% birthday wishes compared to previous years.. that shows how little friends i truly have, muahahaha!!

it is so true that we are all now so used to be "reminded" of events and birthdays by notifications, after which we can just conveniently type something or even just click a button to automate birthday greetings to our friends, whether genuinely or just out of courtesy, and finally gain a "LIKE" by the birthday boy/girl - the whole process completes.. don't mistaken me for complaining here, at this age, i really will not care too much.. and don't feel bad you missed my birthday, i've missed many too, we all understand this is just the trend now.. anyway, i was thrilled by those who remembered my birthday, sent me birthday greetings or even bought me presents, i really appreciated that.. thank you so much people, i am still feeling touched, your thoughts and action really meant a lot.. :)
