Ever heard of it?

Well, we have been drinking kefir everyday since two weeks ago and we absolutely love it!

Kefir (pronounced as "kuh-feer") is a fermented milk drink, with a consistency similar to thin yogurt that help balance your "inner ecosystem" to maintain optimal health and strengthen immunity.

Thanks to Andrei and Katya for the cauliflower kefir grains. Kefir grains are a combination of friendly bacteria and beneficial yeasts with casein (milk proteins) and complex sugars.

In fact, it is very easy to make kefir. Just follow the simple steps according to them.

1) Add pasteurised milk (it can be made from any type of milk) with kefir grains, cover with a lid and ferment at room temperature for about 24 hours depending on your taste. 48 hours will make a thicker, sourer kefir, 12 hours a thinner, sweeter kefir.

2) 24 hours later, strain the prior day's kefir batch into a clean container and it is ready to drink! It should be creamy and a little thicker than milk. Normally, we will put the ready-to-drink kefir into the refrigerator before consumption.

3) After straining, return the grains into a clean container. We have a baby kefir! The grains will grow during fermentation and additional grains are produced.

4) Repeat whole process by adding pasteurised milk to the grains to make the next batch.


Today, kefir is becoming increasingly popular due to new research into its health benefits. Basically, they just told us how to make kefir but you can find out all-about-kefir from the cool sites below.

- IMPORTANT PRECAUTIONS or else THE GRAINS WILL DIE!

Please accept the real kefir grains as a precious living beings. Love them, talk to them, handle them gently, feed them regularly and they will pay you back with your health. When you take loving care about them, they will be with you for the rest of your life and you will be the one who benefited most.
*Uh-oh!*

Last Wednesday, four of us went to Genting Highlands at about 1am after supper. It was David's off day and he insisted on going there to donate money try his luck. While waiting for him, we just walked around, knowing the fact that there's nothing to see. Nobody there except the three of us.

"Don't look at the camera. Look there. There's a pretty girl over there." Wai Hong said.

"Stop killing each other!"

See what happened to the picture when the KL Tower a super-tall guy holds the camera.

"Forget it guys." It is closed.

Since we had no choice, we entered Curry House, one of the only restaurants still open for business.



Check out the price!

mybb ordered Roti Planta but they served him Roti Canai! The waiter said, "Because you Singaporean called it Roti Prata instead of Roti Canai." "Prata? What is Prata?" I asked mybb. We told him we are NOT Singaporean and we said PLAN-ta. NOT PRA-ta.

Roti Telur Bawang (RM 4.00++) and a can of Sprite (RM3.50++).

Milo (RM 5.00++). ? Me too.

Roti Planta (RM 4.00++) and a can of Coke (RM 3.50++).



Wai Hong.


Within one hour, David has finished playing. I didn't expect him to be this fast.

The player.

Your visit is not complete if you don't throw a coin and make a wish. "Yeah right!"


On the way back, I heard David said, "I can reach downhill within 15 minutes." He drove so fast; accelerated around those sharp corners and overtook other cars ahead as if the car does not have a brake pedal he is the main actor in Initial D! mybb and Wai Hong were so . Imagine we were like riding a roller coaster, left to right, right to left. We almost heard "Welcome to the sweet heaven." *touch wood*! "I'm not ready to meet my grandparents yet!"

I couldn't stand it anymore!!! What happened next?

MORAL of the story -

Skills, knowledge, abilities and experience

So, Where are you now?

When I watched Malaysian Dreamgirl, it will remind me of America's Next Top Model. But, I'm not going to compare the blond-hair-blue-eyed-dolls and black-hair-asian-eyed-dolls or who's got the best legs or who's got the nicest cleavage or who's got the kick-ass body among the MDG.

After watching those contestants went through some session about modelling, catwalk lessons, photo shoots, transformations, challenges and some drama over phone time, bitched to the camera individual confession, cried throughout the whole thing, expressed their excitement, showed any emotion during the photo shoots, from episode 1 to 6, all in all,




Jean was my favourite but she decided to withdraw from the competition.

This is my favourite hairstyle!!! Stylish yet feminine. It looks fantastic on Fiqa. Don't you think so?

Alison who has the nice personality was eliminated?! I like her too. I know. It seems unfair to her since she doesn't have many friends in Malaysia.

my favourite is

Last Wednesday night, we went to a place called Niu Che Shui in Singapore's Chinatown Kelana Jaya. It was our first time there. Along the way, there were banners hanging from the lampposts. Or else, it was kinda hard to find the place. After passed through a tunnel and residential areas, it's actually located opposite of a Condo.

Here you'll find all sorts of stuff such as clothes, shoes, accessories, handbags, wallets, toys, gadgets, watches, souvenirs...but there are not many eateries, yet.




The entrance.


Big Apple Donuts & Coffee.


Starbucks. It has 2 floors.

David was choosing a wallet after he bought himself a Zippo lighter.







Saloon.





A cafe where alcohol is served.



Ka Fei Tiam. Stairs up to the second floor. I like the design.








Still have plenty of empty stores.

David and mybb.


Niu Che Shui is just like Petaling Street or known as KL's Chinatown, a place for you to get some goods at bargain prices but no jostling crowd, just a low buzz of voices.


*Niu Che Shui, literally means "ox-cart water" or Kreta Ayer in Malay.
