Random shoot with Rina & Judy at Barcelona

A couple of nights ago I was with my friends at the newly open Barcelona Spanish bar, the place looks great and it even have free computers for customers to serve the web(how cool is that?) But there is one major downside of the place, the whole place relies on one freaking air conditioning unit to cool the place. How funny is that? because the place was really like a sauna and putting up one fan to compensate the heat, how thoughtful of them. Which does not really help, put up more ceiling fan!!! or more A/c!

Enough of my babbling, I notice how nice the place was. I asked Rina & Judy would they like to have their portraits taken, and they said yes. Here are the photos, no flash used and the only lighting used was the LCD monitor of the computer.

The unknown place for Kolok mee

Yesterday night I drove all the way up to the airport area just for a bowl of kolok mee, call me insane if you want because Eric said the kolok mee is so good that the quantity produce per night is very limited and advance booking is required. Now that sounded very convincing, too bad I cannot tell you the exact location. Because I needed my friend to lead the way, further more it was night time and not very easy to recognize the place.

So the place doesn't look exactly like a decent kopitiam, it does not have much tables around and it is located at the back alley. You must be thinking who on earth would eat there, therefore I do not judge the appearance because I see a lot of people dropping by there.

So here comes the noodles, for the looks it pretty much just like plain Jane. The taste was superb, it has the home cook food flavor and feeling. You do not feel sick after eating, usually you get that feeling because most of the stalls use ajinomoto like nobody's business, but this one they do not do so(I think). I would definitely go through the trouble driving back there again and have this, it is just so worth it for a noodle freak like me and the noodles are so good that will make normal people become like this.

Seemingly harmless

I have this bottle of almond syrup in my office, they usually call it "heng ngi ngo" in the kopitiam. Who would ever thought that a bottle of seemingly harmless almond syrup may contain a word that seems inappropriate word, no right?

Look closely at the ingredient, I almost went ROFL in the office. I look it up on the net, it is actually a word for an ingredient but still it really sounded so wrong.
