Out of ideas of what to cook for dinner? Dining alone? Salad makes an awesome, simple meal for one, or side dish for two or more!

Fried Bihun

by Volvoxx On July 27, 2007 3:51 AM 0 comments
Sauce (mix all together)
3 tbsp light soya sauce
1/2 tbsp dark soya sauce
1 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp aji no moto
dash of pepper
1 tbsp fish sauce (optional)

Ingredient
1 egg
*1/2 chicken breast, slightly marinated (optional) with soya sauce and sesame oil
*1/2-1 fishcake (or 5 fishbball) , sliced (optional)
*prawns (as much as desired)
4-5 leaves of cabbage, shredded (or beansprout...but I don't like tauge)
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
3 tbsp oil

200g bihun (soaked to soft, easier with warm water)

*=(up to you how much you'd like to have)

1. Heat up a bit of oil and fry the egg (scramble or plain). Make sure the egg is separated into small pieces. Remove from wok.
2. Heat up about 2-3 tbsp of oil.
3. Add in garlic, chicken/fishcake/prawns. Stir fry until ingredients look almost cook.
4. Add in cabbage. Stir fry for another minute or two.
5. Add in the sauce, followed by the bihun. Stir until evenly coated with sauce.
6. If bihun is too dry, add is a bit of water. If not salty enough, add salt/soya sauce. Adjust taste accordingly.
7. When bihun is almost done, add in the pre-fried egg and continue stirring. (you'll know its done when you taste the bihun and its not too 'keras'.
8. Serve.

You can try this with kueyteo oso but don't have to soak it (I think)...cuz I tried soaking it (because it kinda froze inside QJ's fridge and its....seketul) and it turned out a bit...soggy.

Happy Tryin :D

Fifi and the half-assed haircut

by Volvoxx On July 25, 2007 3:11 AM 4 comments
Yeah yeah...my 'before after' pic didn't quite have the....difference effect (..cuz I lazy ass and din post pic after I straightened my hair...bleh..nvm...)

Anyways.....

....Fifi got 'tormented' at home. Well...sorta....ppl all got too busy with my niece and she got 'neglected'. Got fungus growth on her and aunt trimmed her fur to heal easier/faster...so.....


She's pissed allright...lol!

Mum says she looks awfully cute tho...scampering around the house like that.



But it kinda reminds me of the times when she was just a pup...like in this pic...



Can't wait to go back and see her again in August!

My brother+sister using friendster

by Volvoxx On July 24, 2007 2:57 AM 0 comments
....umm....I dunno why...and mostly, I dunno why NOW. It seems a lil giggly to me that they're starting to use friendster only now...LOL. One of them is 6 years older than me and the other 6 years older than the other...but hmm...I'm kinda glad tho. They're using the..umm...technology/services online? XD

Made me go "Haaaa??" when I received a pending friend request from both of them (...I'm the type of person who only logs into Friendster to approve pending request or delete messages....mm..maybe sometimes kaypo see ppl's pics but that's like...so rare x.x )

Hope I won't be getting a Add Friends Request from my mum anytime soon....eek!!

Have wanted to post pics of my kesian kesian puppy Fifi (after a freak hairstyling accident....joking) pics...but....tmr la. Lab tmr...tired ade.

Laters all!

Bloody Buggers

by Volvoxx On July 21, 2007 2:12 AM 4 comments
Broad daylight. And later in the early morning...WITH people in the room. Twice a day.

They have some nerves.

Who would have thought that these robbers would be so daring to strike the same house..TWICE in a day. Bloody hell.

A little bit of carelessness on our part and a lot of planning from what I'd see to be rather professional robbers. They even dropped a brick into the house as sound check, to see if they're awake/would wake up to the sound of the brick being dropped to the floor.

The first attack was on my friend's cellphone and cash in wallet, and he was sleeping in the room. We thought then that we forgot to lock the door or something, never suspecting that they actually managed to hook the key out from the window. And they actually unbolted the top latch of the front wooden door, so that it'll be easier for them to open later at night. Planning done. Survey done.

When you've been hit by something like that, you'd think they dare not strike again so soon, thus throwing you off-guard.

4.30 am, they struck again. This time with plenty of valuables. If my friend hadn't woken up to the sound of his speakers crackling when the plug was removed, they would have been mugged clean. EVERYTHING. Now, at least some things were salvaged...thankfully. Although, the damage has been done. Painful loss. Paranoia strikes.

I SO will stab them till their nuts crack, should I catch them...or should I consider using heels? Hmm...

/hugs Dearie....

p/s: Please people, there have been many cases in that area recently...all of a sudden. On the same day of the incident, there have been 4-5 case reported in Bukit Beruang alone, 3 (or so) here in Taman Bunga Raya, 1 in ixora (I heard...shophouse la) and one snatch theft that left the victim injured and hospitalized. Please lock all doors, room doors, keep keys out of reach, wallets too. Watch out for stalkers and the usuals, don't walk alone in the dark, careful of purse...etcetc. These bastards have no humanity in them.

Draft!

by Volvoxx On July 19, 2007 2:12 AM 0 comments
ZOMG...I drafted my first Magic: The Gathering draft today! 10th Ed.

When I first got together with QJ I told myself I'd never draft...cuz I didn't wanna get too into Magic....oh noes...lol

Anyways...drafted a Black/White deck and thankfully no one picked black so I got all the uber 1337 flying black creatures. As well as a few powerful cards...

Got 2nd place...got squashed by QJ...grrrrr...close one dude..you just got lucky I got flooded 2nd time round....blek... :P X33

Overall? Was quite fun. Nice having your opponents guiding you as well. Thanks, Alex, Jia Yung, and of cuz, Dearie!

Do not understand

by Volvoxx On July 18, 2007 4:41 AM 0 comments
I do not understand...why there needs to be so much fuss over something that has a rather...'remote' connection to the issue at hand...wait...there was an issue at hand?

Kinda makes me confused at one point what was the whole fuss all about.

Its just...

I don't see how-

Argh nevermind. I'll just rant to QJ tmr. Don't see how I can be satisfied posting it here...aside from the trouble it might further cause to post further bleh-ness here.


On a totally different note, my niece will be baptised this Sunday, and christened with the name Melissa. (...is that how I'm supposed to say it?...whoops?)

...and my brother kept fussing over whether he should put double L (Mellissa) or double S (Melissa) or both (Mellissa). My sister and my reply: "....just choose sumthing less complicated for her? That poor kid.."

And oh...on ANOTHER totally different matter....I fried bihun today. Pretty satisfied with it, I should say...for a first time at least. Hope it'll work fine with fried kuey teo...

Gnites.

I (almost) broke my nose

by Volvoxx On July 17, 2007 2:10 AM 1 comments
Almost, I say. Or think.

Went down to take water the other day (since both my 1.5L bottles are depleted of water)...turned off kitchen lights after I was done and (stupidly) confident that I can estimate where the kitchen exit was....walked straight and BANG!

...you idiot. Just because your druid (DnD) has 'low light vision' doesn't mean YOU have low light vision...even so, that was NO light vision you were in then...bleh...

....Couldn't think straight for a minute or two. Sakit giler! Only thing I could think of doing was to run and cry to QJ...but he was in KL... x.x ...

Still hurts today...when I accidentally rub on it... x.x


On a totally different matter, I'm somehow looking forward to tomorrow. Eventho 4 hours of class, 2h at 8am...somehow....just feel like jumping to tmr. Don't exactly know why. Probably the gym (hopefully wun be FFKed again...but then again won't make a difference anyway...)...or the dinner I'm gonna try to make...or the DnD after that (...I still suck... x.x ) ....ahh...whatever it is.

Had a rather big Care gathering today. Didn't expected so many ppl (especially when I got there at 8.20pm and there's only 5 ppl). Must be about 20-30 ppl playing various stuff. A bunch at boardgames. A small group playing WoW TCG, Citidels...and a few DMs trying to 'corrupt' members (lol). Free junk food for all. Hee. Would have enjoyed it better if it wasn't for the headache (and the sleepiness x.X )

...and I badly need sleep now. And I'm thinking too much stuff.

WTB more time to edit and post photos. Lotsa them.
WTB more time to sleep
WTB more 'weekend'

The Definition of "XD"

Sometimes when I chat with my siblings and write "XD" in the conversation...they'll ask me "what XD??" ...then I'll have to explain about emoticons and etcetc....

Next time...I'll just show them this pic.

July-A lot of ppl punya birthday...




Happy Birthday Shindee!
Lets go Casino. If kalah can sell your Potato.



The bunch of us just got back from our trip to The Curve cum Bon Odori. So awfully tiring. We girls had fun shopping but I bet the bunch of others (esp those not familiar with Ikano/Curve) are bored stiff. lol.

More stories + pics later.

Nites peeps.

p/s: Missed you a lot dear...

Lately...

by Volvoxx On 2:04 AM 0 comments
Just wanted to blog...but can't think of anything specific to blog about...so it's just a random update-sort of post I guess..hehe...

Back from short but rather pleasant homey holiday. Spent the most time with my family this time I guess...being in Penang most of my hols. Did so much less shopping than I expected to...which is not that much of a bad thing actually. More cash for megasales lol!

QJ moved to my taman...less than 5 mins walk and 2 mins on bike (depending on your direction of travel..if going to his house...prolly 2-3 mins and I'll be at his gate like a dog...from his place back to mine...2 mins and I get real nice breeze at night.....uphill/downhill afterall x.x) Been looking forward to this Sem actually...mostly because of his moving here. I love the distance but what I love most is the privacy and actually having a place to hangout, sit and play (a bunch of games there LOL...boardgames, cardgames, PC, and a certain white console ahem~)...housemates that are NOT hostile to you...and that actually cleans the house and treats it like a home. And best of all..NO LANDLORD...at least not the types that stay in...

All that being said...I'm spending 40% of my waking hours in campus, 35% at his place and 25% at home. ^^; ...okay maybe only 30% in campus...XD Don't get me wrong..I still love my home/room...but... XD ....contributes largely to why I blog so much less often these days. Spending too much time there...and on the console...kekekek...

Watched Transformers the other day with Quj, Wilz and Co...about 10 of us I think...cant remem. Its quite cute...really. Not the film! The film was great...awesome if I may say so...not that I'm much of a film critic. But what makes me smile isn't the film...but the reaction of these 'boys' to the film. Afterall, the show is part of their childhood (I've seen it before but only remember very vaguely about it...hehe) The entire party were jumpy about it...halfway thruout the show, I turn to see QJ watching the show with mouth agape...like a little boy watching the cartoon on TV. Find this rather...facinating. Can't help but smile looking at him.

After the movie...the whole gang burst into fast paced chitters as they marched into Kenny Rogers...I think all other customers who were dining before their show WOULD hate us...spoilers and all...rofl! The bunch of fanboys...really made Suj and myself feel...lost.

Small 'outings' now and then...cooked a few meals...kinda failed on an attempt to cook chicken chop (breadcrumb style)...must try again..this time properly de-sejuk-ed properly ^^;;; Bought fries...regret didn't buy ice cream...but coughing now so nevermind... /sigh ....yeah...flu..again. Had slight fever the other night...macam lembik aje this year...bleh...

Been quite semangat go gym lately...at least every Tuesday and Thursday (girl gym days) that I can make it...which is partly the reason why I fell sick I guess...not enough sleep and went bukiting on Friday and fell asleep in hot room after dat...ended up with flu+slight fever...AND headache...bleh. Will try to drag Shindee to gym sometime. Muahahahaha....use that new sport shoes of urs girl XD

Had a little 'Birthday Lunch' for Khurshid the other day....at US pizza. That dude practically shove his face for us to coat with cream...cheh no fun...kekeke...Happy 21 dude...albeit late ade.

Went to watch Harry Potter yesterday. A little excited over this as well but I'm glad it didn't just blow up in my face. It wasn't spectacular but it was rather nice IMO. MBO Cinemas are just...nice. I dun see heads anymore lol! Right after that, Quj and I jumped onto Kid's car and went try this chicken chop place. Quite a filling portion for the price and quite nice too...but kinda find the black pepper a bit too peppery...mm...just had this little fetish over chicken mushroom sauce I guess...lol...but Jiki's was quite nice...QJ loves it...I love the sate there... XD

And I don't understand why ppl find it so hard to get my order of Teh Limau Panas. TWICE already...jeez.

Going The Curve and Bon Odori this Sat. QJ has 10th-Ed Party...Magic thing....wish I can go Curve with him again...mmm..some day. :3 Paddington Pancake was nice X3 ....next year we go ne dear??? Bon Odori and kaikais X3

Shindee's Birthday this Sunday....mmm...plannings plannings.....

More House MD. Yayayayayyayayaya...kekkekee

Trying to change blog layout...mm..might take a while but I'll get it done. Love the new one. Hope works all well.... :D

Ciao

p/s: Period cramps are a bitch..thanks for the warm bottle of water dear...was very sweet of u X333

Kittens in Action

by Volvoxx On July 10, 2007 1:11 AM 2 comments
QJ and I were walking towards Ixora to have dinner there earlier just now and we stumbled upon a litter of very young kittens just outside the Cafe at Plaza Siswa. Unlike most kittens that are just chasing each other, these young felines are doing it while training their muscle/skill at...

...tree climbing.

...or maybe they're just learning how to sharpen their claws
(..that's where you get those crafty scratches on your furniture and etc.)



Meet the family. Kucing Mama (I think) and the kittens.


Going up!


Yeah yeah...c'mon higher!


Lemme lend you a paw!


Grrrr...I'll catch you for sure! Get back down here!


After snapping some photos, one of the little ones came towards QJ...went round and round his feet...and licked his toes and ankle! X3 So cute!


....then it came and lick attack me pulak...so ticklish XD

Hope they're still around...wouldn't mind a few more snap shots...was quite dark then...the pics needed flash and quite a bit of time to focus since they were so hyper...keep jumping when I siap focus

So...anyone wanna adopt a kitten?

Fishy Business

by Volvoxx On July 8, 2007 12:31 AM 0 comments
QJ and I went for a lil outing at Jusco today. Had loads of fun (and spent quite a bit..lol)...finally passed the taiko song, Natsumatsuri [first time!] ..after that we went bought Papa Roti to munch..and decided to tapau another 2 for Amran since went drooly drooly over it the other day..kinda... XD

Both of us cheekily hid beside his door and knocked on it when we came back and wanted to pass the buns to him...after knocking for a bit...both of us were kinda o.o? cuz his response kinda slow...then he opened the door, looking a bit tired. Told us he got stung by jellyfish.

EEK! Never really crossed my mind that there's jellyfish along the shores of the beaches of Malacca. Never. I've seen a bunch of jellyfish while riding the ferry across to Penang but that's in the deep sea area...and.....bleh. Just never expected them to be there. That's all. Anyways...it kinda makes me shudder to think that the ppl I know can kena jellyfish sting. Scary. Really! All this while my only 'First Aid knowledge' about jellyfish stings was.....ammonia...err....urine....^^; And when I think bout it..."is that really how you handle a jellyfish sting?????" ...made me think that its kinda unreliable.

So...that being said, I googled it up and got this:

"Jellyfish Stings - Symptoms range from a painful, itchy, red rash to nausea, low blood pressure and shortness of breath.

Warning: The venom from a poisonous jellyfish retains its potency even after the tentacles have been severed and the jellyfish is dead.

First aid: Rinse area with seawater (fresh water will worsen reaction) and remove tentacles with forceps, tweezers or gloved hands only. Apply white vinegar or rubbing alcohol for 30 minutes to neutralize venom. Make a paste with baking soda, mud or sand, or cover area with shaving cream, and shave with a sharp instrument to remove remaining tentacles. Apply hydrocortisone cream twice a day and control itching with an antihistamine.

Seek medical attention if: You’re stung on the face or genital area, have many stings or you’re having a systemic reaction – severe pain, worsening of the swelling, nausea, difficulty breathing or swallowing. [heck...I'd seek medical attention no matter what, reaction or otherwise -vox] "

p/s: Dun worry. Amran's quite fine ;D
pp/s: Edo...time to start throwing ppl into the beach next time...nyehehehe... /runs

Order of Pheonix opens in Malaysian cinemas on the 11th of July.

I wanna watch...rather badly. Dunno why...lol!

Trailer here! Looks good :D

So siapa nak tengok? XD

RM45

by Volvoxx On July 2, 2007 1:20 AM 2 comments
It only cost us RM45 to book the whole cinema to ourselves.


No kidding!


5 of us, Amran, Suj, Razzman, QJ and myself went MBO (this 7 screen cinema newly opened in Melaka Mall..about time they open a cinema near MMU! Well..near enuff.. at least) today to watch Hot Fuzz ...a comedy cop show. Nice show. But no one seems to be very interested in it.

We bought tickets for the 12.30 noon show and was surprised to see that hall 6 was not ready for seating. When we entered the hall, we quickly understood why: There was no one else watching this show.

So yeah...we got it all to ourselves.

Fun to be watching a show and sitting wherever you want, and talk and laugh out loud to your friends...lol. Not to mention, you dun even have to silence phone...haha! Its like watching it at home with HUGE screen and nice environment...

Well..that's my first experience 'tapau-ing' the whole cinema hall... XD


p/s: ....gawd...been ages since I updated...rarely spend time at home nowadays...not since QJ moved near here...and Wii .....geh!
