G'day to all the people out there who reads my blog ;),
this is just one of my very few posts and one of my very lasts.
It's been either very busy lately or I am just lazy to blog.
Today is of of my very very very special friends Birthday (close-friend), I talk to him basically everyday except for you know, holidays and sundays and fridays. Our subjects range from food to daily lives and random questions. We usually debate with each other and he is targetting me as a potential debate candidate whom he would one day like to debate with along with pat and becky elicay.
IT'S A DAY TO REMEMBER!! HEHE. Well he claims that his birthday is just as important.
And here is what I recalled from his long long long list of peoples birthdays.
Samuel: Ka Yong, You do know that a few days from now is my birthday don't you?
Ka Yong: Ofcourse I do, It's like displayed on your MSN 'message'.
Samuel: Oh haha! You know ah? My Birthday very IMPORTANT ONE!
Ka Yong: NO! Mine more important?
Samuel: No, mine is very important
Samuel: If you remember my bday you remember stevens, my birthday is 10 days before malaya got it's full independance you see, you can too remember my uncles my birthday then ms lorenes wedding and bla bla bla and practically he lists a long list of what i can 'non-sense'.
then our convo goes on like forever.
Full Name................... SAM-YE-WEL. errr lemme spell that for you. It begins with an S-A-M-U-E-L S-H-I-E S-O-N-G F-A.
errr... lemme google his name to find a picture of him =D.
googling. ..... after 10 years.
Well that took long enough. It was tough searching for your pics you know?. I've been living on caffeine injections lately and thankfully it was able to save me from collapsing.
MMMMMM..... I bet he was dreaming of the Aglia Olio that I was about to consume.
A good role model and a kind dude who helps people with food (servant or waiteress).
Excerpted from a friend ( FZ). Well, this as you can see is Samuel Shie. Kind and Loveable not to mention cuddly too ( p.s he loves cuddles and hugs.)
Well today is his special day and he has a desire for food (like me ;) ) a begedil lover which he is experimenting and trying to improve on.
Loves to talk, funny, I love his smile it's so perfect. Loves cheese, cooking and wants to participate in BGIC representing the contingent from Germany and wants to be a teacher. Caring and daring is his middle name.
OBSERVATIONS I HAVE MADE OF HIM
in case if you're not sure who to find:
1) good sense of humour
2) Loves cheese
3) random type of person
4)carries his Tupperware bottle around almost everytime =)
5) Hot spots: Library near the counter.
6) Loves fantasies.
7) Devout Christian who nags me everyday to go to YDM.
One of my lasts,

Sorry guys if I had not updated for quite a long time guess that I've been on a lengthend hiatus. I apologiize for that.
Well, not much things have been happening in my life lately and am having not much to blog about because we're currently having our well deserved 2 weeks holiday. Actually, I have not been outstation lately due to the much talked about swine flue pandemic (H1N1). Singapore has it, Malaysia has it, Indonesia has just recently got affected and our dear Thailand has 1000 cases ( I think, having too much social outings and ignoring warnings by the government amid the pandemic has caused it to shoot but rapidly). On the other hand, our country Brunei Darussalam has reported 20 cases so far and has led schools nation wide to issue the use of face masks and thermometers.
Few minutes ago, a kind friend told me that school was to be cancelled on monday (yay!), upon hearing the news, I was ecstatic!, up in my mind I was thinking of how to occupy myself during the one week period. Another week of boredom for us, I guess. Despite the boredness, I didn't feel like attending school on monday. And now, here I am, rejoiced and delighted that the date of reopening would be delayed for a week!
I've been on a trip to Miri and stayed overnight. It was a rather awkward and random trip. On the way to Miri, I saw my ex-teacher, Ckg. Dillah ( she was rather strict but at the same time hilarious and spontaneous). She was working in the Custom 'pondok' at river seven ( Sungai Tujoh???, If you didn't get that ==). I took residence at my relatives house and had a new haircut. That night, we went to Bintang Plaza ( the mall now having renovations and expansions of wing and where parkson grand is located in miri), It had a totally new face look, ramped up multi storey parking lots and a whole new look when you step into one of the new wings. The newly, I mean reopened version of the popular outlet was stunning and astonishing. I has the 'futuristic' look and was ginormous, well not as big as Borders lah!. I bought a book titled 'Do you wear suspenders (not the shuffling 1 ah)?' by Lydia Teh. It's a hilarious and very perculiar, a series of short stories centered around a character named Eh Poh Nim (eponym, words based on peoples name), a talkative woman who fancies herself something of a wordsmith ( expert with words). She loves to brag out her knowledge of words to anyone who cares to listen. Book Rating: 3.5/5
I'm now left with, homeworks, projects, tution and much more including burdens. Oh yeah!, Ms. Mary owes us Lunch remember Samuel?. I feel something echoing in my head and my ears won't let it out. Gahhh!!@@@
I think I am going to stop here and continue with online streamings. teehee!

All about yesterday,
We had a great lunch at Shabu-Shabu, I ordered the super seafood set which costs $22.00 and shared it with Li jie. Had problems finishing it, actually if we had more soup, we could. The only unfinished servings were the prawns and crabs. I ordered the Kimichi Soup. It was delicous.
While having our lunch, I then only found out that they had to leave at 2.45 , we had our lunch for a more or less 2 hours in the restaurant. The bill was $66.50. So the movie was cancelled and I had to watch it by myself.
We walked to seri q-lap to see what movies were in stall for us. Then we went down and waited near Jollibee for our transport. I followed and hoped into the car and asked the driver to drop me by chong hock. There I went DVD-hunting to waste my time.
I called Rirah and Jos to hurry up to tuition as I was freakin bored. I got my DVDs ran across the road and went to my tution. They were there giving me the angry looks. So yeah, they were bored too. So we went down and played Rirahs laptop.
Jos thought that the malay boys hanging around that area was peeking ( looking) at jo's butt when she went to pick up rirahs phone on the ground ( fyi,rirah threw her phone) . haha. It was hilarious, you guys should've seen. Then jos complained and rirah threw her phone the second time, but that time was on purpose. So yeah
Well, I'm lazy to blog now. No mood.

Yeess! tomorrow i'll be going with my bunch of friends to the cinemas. We've decided to go to The Shabu-Shabu restaurant to lunch in too! Well all that has to come after my tuition. After the outings, I'll have to walk my way to another tution again~!. How agonizing is that!Well I bet tomorrow will be all the funs and crazy-ness as we are all 1) mental 2) spontaneous 3) every good adjective to describe us because everything will just fit in perfectly. Didn't I get that right my friends?. We might be watching Blood or something else cause there aren't good movies. Will be missing transformers 2 during the class outings next thursday. Don't bother going out and have tution again ==. Well, to the main point I was going to blurt out. Ow yeah! Samuel told me of a good site, which is a must for you guys to visit. It's www.the3in1beverage.blogspot.com Yay! I actually remembered the site name cause its easy to remember right? Just try to remember the aromatic 3in1 coffee brew that our mothers make during the morning...Ahhhh!!. Summary: this site has the all in all of basically everything. From jokes to morals. How nice is that? . The 3 in 1 doesn't just contain 3 stuffs but much to mention. Curious I am, I started to read the Profile corner stating that there was 8 people writing the blog! How wonderful is that! 8 different people from different paths of life, sharing stories and wonderful stuff of their daily lives. Amazing huh?. Well it's just a matter of click and visiting and leaving your link there. Sorry for my lots of carelessly made grammatical and spelling error. I'm rushing to finish my post. Sorray! P.S - I heard that once you visit that blog your sad gloomy day would just apparently change into a great colourful and spontaneous day! Ciaoo,Mee 064

Youhooo! I'm back after a short hiatus I can say.
Pheww! It's been awesome as our holidays will start or I meant have started since yesterday!. How awesome is that!. Well, I'm relieved and delighted that school is over. On the other side, we have EXAMMMS! coming and PMBSSS!!! ahhh which is seriously killing me bit by bit.
Well all I can say to all the SAS-ians, Happy Holidays!. Tell you the truth, I have tons of homework piled up on my table ready for me to devour on.
I'm saving money for my new DSLR!. My parents allowed to get one but I had to pay for roughly half of the value. So instead of getting them just to pay for half, I saved the money they gave me and slowly added on my pocket money, other money which slowly totals up to 80% of the value. Bwahahaha! Aren't I smart?. Well, I'm still deciding on which model to buy or which brand to buy too. I'm brand-concious now! ( term used in commerce, haizz! It's so in my blood~). Any suggestions?. I think the Cannon EOS 450D is great, but it's an old model. Hopefully I would be able to pay off 100% with my current savings as DSLR prices tend to drop.
Btw, I just woke up at 12.00, haha, don't know what has gotten into me that made me sleep a prolly 12 hours.
Oh yeah! I almost forgot! 'We' as in friends are going to watch Harry Potter however it's primere-ing someday in July which is when school reopens, why does everything has to be ruined!. So yeah, we might be catching a movie during the holidays and maybe go and makan in Shabu-Shabu.
Thats about it, catch you later =D.

I have nothing much to blogg about right now so yeah... I 've decided to blogg on food!. So topic today would be......Apple+Eggs+Custard+Cream+Flour= APPLE STRUDLE!!! =D. It was one of my most favourite and most missed desert when I was in Perth. There was this great Italian homemade pastry shop in the heart of Perth City
And every sunday, I would just drop by and buy myself a large serving of apple strudel. Here are some informantion I would love to share with you guys about this wonderful invention of mankind: Apple strudel consists of an oblong strudel pastry jacket with an apple filling inside. The filling is made of grated apples, sugar, cinnamon, raisins, and bread crumbs. A juicy apple strudel should be baked with good cooking apples that are tart, crisp, and aromatic. According to the famous chef Karl Gundel (1883 – 1956), for apple strudel, winesap apples are the best. The dough consists of flour, oil (or butter) and salt. The secret of apple strudel dough preparation is in making the pastry very thin and elastic. Preparing of the original strudel dough is a difficult process that appears complex. The dough is kneaded by flogging often against a table top to align the starch molecules, rested, then rolled out on a big table, so it should cover the whole table, and than stretched by hand on a floured tablecloth. The dough should be very thin, and holes are mended if any occures. When the dough is finally stretched out, an old fashioned apple strudel dough is very large, and often may reach the size of a bedsheet. A single layer should be so thin that one could read a newspaper through it. Apple juice can be added to the pastry dough, instead of water, and the dough may be substituted using frozen phyllo dough. Vanilla and rum may be used to add flavour to the filling and light flavoured olive, or other oil may be used instead for butter or lard. Other less usual ingredients may include zest, lemon juice, and nuts (preferably ground walnuts, slivered almonds, or in Italy, in Trentino Alto Adige, pine nuts).
The rolled-up and filled apple strudel is baked in a pan in the oven.
The apple strudel is sliced and traditionally is served warm, often sprinkled with powdered sugar. Apple strudel can be accompanied by tea, coffee or even champagne. Viennese café is a typical institution of Vienna that has a long tradition in Austria and plays an important role in Viennese culture and culinary tradition. The one of the most common treats in a Viennese coffeehouse is Apfelstrudel with coffee or tea.
Isn't that something worth craving for? Giuseppi Corica Apple Strudels are the best. Heavenly as they look, once you lay a bite on the crispy topping, you would crave for more. bwahahahahha!. You won't regret what you are buying, It's a 100% satisfaction guranteed.
Upon opening it, the strudel that's so perfect and golden-brown in all its glory, it was as if the apple strudel was radiating a beautiful golden glow T.TIf you've never tasted apple strudel, don't worry. I'll try and fill you in on the exact details of what the best apple strudel tastes like.
Just by looking at it, you can tell how rich it is. Corica is indeed generous with their apple chunks and the cream isn't an exception either.
As you bite into the strudel, the sweetness to it is just perfect. The layers upon layers upon MORE layers of thin, oh so very thin, sugary crispy crust gives the strudel a texture that is to die for.
It retails for about AUD$12.00 (2001) but now, AUD$18.00. What an increase?. And it only has one branch located only in Perth.
Gahh! I have troubles with arranging the pictures, mind me please!.
Thats all for today,

Today was a tiring day,
2) Mac Dougall =D
4) Hollis =C
Hollis got LAST again.
Are we Jinxed?
Well, all that I can say is that we did our best and had fun.
I am losing my voice now after shouting for hours in the padang, cheering people on.
Our house is 60 points behind now after the sports day.
I am happy for Mac Dougal house as they made it to 2nd place.
Congrats to all the winners who won during the sports day event.
The tug of war strategy for Hollis house was so wrong.
Thats all I want to say for now.
