Yes, that’s pretty much sums it all.  Because I can.  lol.  :)

Remember back in 2007, I had a wonderful photo shoot with Joe Low (aka potatoe).  The link back then is here.  So then, again, I decided to commisioned Joe again to take pictures for me.  Intent: Keepsake  :) Yes, I think everyone should have one of those moments.  You know what I mean.  LOL.

This time round, the shoot was pretty much different.  Studio vs On Location.  More variations, and I think I improve and mature too along the way, which is something good.  :) Anyway,  I took 3 of the pics to show you guys.  :) Hope you like it.





For boudoir / keepsake / makeover shoot you can email or drop by his flickr page at or his Facebook at


:) will try to post more soon *hugs blurdevil*

I have always send my Mazda for service in Bermaz.  Yup, I don’t really send in to any random workshop, cos well, I don’t really believe other people out there. LOL. Not random, but just that I believe my car will be well taken care of in Bermaz.  :) I still recommend everyone to service their Mazda at the authorised centre  – The list all around Malaysia here :)

 Rest assured you will be taken good care of in Mazda while waiting for your car :) A clean workshop to service your car.  No more messy, dirty workshop :P

 While you are waiting (if you choose to wait there), you can choose to sit at the comfy sofa watching TV

Or probably at the work station to enjoy the Free Wi Fi

Oh and enjoy complimentary drinks and cookies! cool

Or you can just check out the current new models (Mazda 2? Mazda 3?) :)

Before you know it, your car is ready :)

Time to pay the bill

And instead of the usual credit card/cash payment, I use BCard :)

Yes, you heard me right.  You can collect points using this BCard and when you have enough points, then you can redeem it on the spot (like Cash, baby.. :) ) You can either do Full Redemption (Cash in all your BPoints) or Partial Redemption (Combination of BPoints and cash-in-hand – minimum 100 BPoints).  Cool right.  The Points Value is at 1BPoints = 1 cent (i.e 100 points = RM1) IF you don’t fancy Cash Redemption, you can head on to to redeem products.  Its that simple.  :)

Its easy to collect points cos they have more than 47 merchants/partners where you can start swiping for your purchase  with all these merchants. From F&B (i.e Starbucks, Kenny Rogers, Krispy Kreme, etc), Hotels (Berjaya Hotel, Piccolo Hotel, etc), Shopping (Video Ezy), Books (Borders, etc and many more.  So apply your BCard now and be rewarded. :)

Oh and by the way, “Don’t forget to take part in the Bcard Swipe and Win contest from 2nd January 2012 to the 29th February 2012 to win some cool prizes like an all expense trip to London!! Check it out on for more details.”

Many have either try or heard about Din Tai Fung restaurant.  Din Tai Fung is an award winning restaurant originating from Taiwan.  As most of you would know, they specialize mainly in “xiao-long-bao”.  This chain of restaurant was once name one of the Top 10 restaurant by The New York Times and currently have presence around the globe (Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Australia, Japan, etc).

The first outlet, situated at The Gardens Mid Valley (2007) and currently have branches in Pavillion KL and Empire Subang.  For those who live around PJ, can now head on to the new outlet at e@Curve. :)

As usual, their food quality control is pretty much there.  :) Which is what I like about Din Tai Fung.  If you have cravings for xiaolongbao, La Mian or even fried rice with pork chop, head on to Din Tai Fung and you won’t be disappointed.  Prior to the new opening at e@Curve, i’ve frequented DTF in Pavillion and of course the outlet at The Gardens :)

I was invited for the pre opening at e@Curve.  A very cosy dining place :)

2011 in review

Posted: January 1, 2012 in Devil Ramblings

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 27,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 10 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Click here to see the complete report.

Chynna is always “the” restaurant to go to whenever anyone ask me for Halal Chinese Cuisine. In my opinion, its the restaurant to go to, that is able to serve up authentic Chinese cuisine without any pork in the menu. :) Their Dim Sum remains one of my favourite. :)

Not forgetting the effort that they take, to create the oriental ambience. Its so Oriental you thought you were in like some oriental country, like say, China. :) See for yourself :)

For those who do not fancy any Western cuisine this festive season, head on to Chynna. The festive set menus specially crafted by Chef Lam might be your choice :)

Chef’s Combination Platter



Steamed Sea Grouper Fillet with Wine and Ginger

Singaporean Chilli Crab Fried Rice


So what better way to enjoy your meal, while bidding farewell to 2011 and welcome a brand new year?
