I'm a big fan of pan mee (flat flour noodle), especially the dry version. I could probably eat it every day for a week and not get bored with it!
#4 Flat Noodle with pickled mustard root & minced chicken (RM8.90).
I love pickled mustard root. However, I still prefer the traditional pan mee – that topped with a handful of crunchy fried anchovies, minced meat, shredded wood-ear fungus, and not to forget sweet potato leaves, which is a vital to have in every bowl of pan mee served.
#5 Spicy-and-sour chili sauce.
#6 Herbal Tea (RM2.80)
#7 Hot & Spicy Flat Noodle soup with fried anchovies, black fungus, mushroom & minced chicken (RM8.90).
Ralph loves spicy food, the hotter the better but according to him, this was not hot or spicy at all and he found them a little flavorless.
Overall, the food was okay but I was very hungry so I hurried up and finished my meal and we left to go shopping!

Ralph has a big collection of Disney DVDs and we were surprised to find that we haven't watched Tangled DVD when we went through his DVD collection recently.
I was expecting this animated Rapunzel romance to be just another formulaic rehash of the girl with super long golden hair who is imprisoned in a tower with prince charming coming to the rescue story. You know the story of the timeless fairytale Repunzal. The evil sorceress called Mother Gothel keeps the girl around only because of that golden hair, which has the power to heal wounds, cure sickness and most important for Mother Gothel's purposes, reverse the aging process.
However, I was surprised and impressed with the extra depth of this updated version as issues and acting styles are tailored to current perspectives. Tangled is an action-packed, swashbuckling, animated musical comedy about an imaginative and determined girl - Repunzal (voice of Mandy Moore) behind 70 feet of magical, golden hair who is locked in a hidden tower longing for adventure and takes off on a hilarious, hair-raising escapade with the help of a dashing bandit (voice of Zachary Levi).
It tells a rousing love story that must overcome all manner of obstacles, it features great music and I was most enchanted by those graceful floating lanterns that waft through the deep night sky.
I adore fairy tales, even if Rapunzel was not my favorite. And hey, it was a good way to spend time and snuggle with my beloved in front of the TV!

This is a classic song featured on the soundtrack to the amazing film, Apollo 13.
The narrator of the song is relating a stroke of luck so unlikely that it must have taken place under a blue moon. The title relies on a play on words, since Blue is also the color of melancholy, and indeed the narrator is sad and lonely until he finds love...

Ah, the Chipmunks! I do remember watching the show on TV and it used to be one of my favorites. It brings back so many memories of when I was a kid, I was obsessed with the lovable animated and singing-star chipmunks, still am a bit you could say. The characters are fondly remembered and I love the songs. I just love the chipmunks' voices.
Besides the Smurfs, I also got a chance to get up-close with the live-sized costumed mischievous rodents, Alvin, Simon & Theodore!
Say hi to Theodore, Alvin and Simon.
The upcoming "Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-Wrecked" is expected to release this December 15, 2011 at Malaysian cinemas nationwide. Alvin, Simon and Theodore are back for a third big screen adventure!

This Fei Por (in Cantonese means fat woman) restaurant has since lived up to its name and has been featured in TV shows like Chui Ling's One Day 5 Meals and 8TV's Ho Chiak, but it was our first time here.
We ordered 2 glasses of iced honey lemon, 2 plates of rice, 2 plates of roasted chicken, a plate of chicken livers, a bowl of steamed ABC with pork ribs soup and our bill was only RM22.50.
I don't eat chicken livers, but Ralph is a liver lover. *shudder*
ABC with Pork Ribs Soup. This is definitely my favorite soup of all time!
The restaurant is open daily (except Thursday) from 7.00pm until 4.00am, which is great for hungry night owls like me.
