Let's Learn Bahasa & Cantonese - I'm From...

~ Posted on Tuesday, March 3, 2015 at 12:17 PM ~

Ever since I started kindergarten at 6 years old, I have been attending public schools (main language is Bahasa Malaysia) and during my earlier years, I mixed around with a lot of Malay friends and even spoke Bahasa with my elder brother at home (he also attends public schools), even to this day. So Bahasa Malaysia used to be my main language other than Cantonese and later on English (brushed up more when I met my hubby then boyfriend through snail mails, I had to practise and brush up my English as he doesn't speak Cantonese) Anyway, I think it is fun to be able to practise back and sharing what I know with those of you who are interested.

And so, here goes our next lesson: I'M FROM...

Dinner - Before & After

~ Posted on Monday, March 2, 2015 at 12:40 PM ~

Last year, I wrote about a look back into my home-cooked journey so far. Then shortly before the end of 2014, I wrote a post on my preparation when cooking. Then I thought, "Why not snap a picture of before start cooking and the final results after cooking?"

So, here you go..

Top part of the picture is the ingredients all ready to be cooked on 6th February 2015. From top left (clockwise): Slices of pork marinated with sugar, sweet soy sauce, Worchestershire sauce, salt and pepper, Asian sea bass (siakap), a cup of chopped scallions, a cup of corn kernels, 2 eggs beaten, a cup of chopped onions, a cup of sweet sauce mixed with water, sugar, salt.

What Colors Are This Dress?

~ Posted on Friday, February 27, 2015 at 4:58 PM ~

I saw a friend of mine posted this asking what color is this dress. In my mind, I said 'DUH.. WHITE AND GOLD of course!' and went on my day. Cleared stuff in storerooms, made lunch, pack stuff to be donated again to charity, and while resting, surfed some news to read and share in my page and I saw a lot of articles on this dress. Apparently there are people who see this dress as different color.

I still think it as a joke and was about to shrug it away when our almost 6 years old boy came over asking whether he could have some snacks for tea break. I asked him what color is the dress.

He said 'Blue and black'. I froze.

I asked him to repeat again what color is the dress and this time he said it in Bahasa (Malaysia's national language): HITAM DAN BIRU.

Oh crapppp... this is no joke. And so I am sharing this picture and see what you think of the dress. What colors are this dress?

Updates 1:

I have personally witnessed both white/gold and black/blue combo on this dress. At different hours of the day, I just looked back at the picture, and it changed colors. Okay, more like the colors are not the same as what I saw earlier.

Updates 2:

The dress is confirmed originally BLUE AND BLACK. If you still can't wrap your mind with that, try looking at this cartoon. Also, you might want to read about the "18 Relationships Destroyed By The Dress That Broke The Internet" for some laughs!
