Wishing This Can Go On

On Friday after work, we went to Alamanda Putrajaya to watch Terminator. Compare to watching Angels & Demons last week where we have to crane our neck seating on the first row, this time we at least made it to the second row..

I was actually pretty excited and looking forward for the weekend as Babai suggested we should go to Malacca 'jalan-jalan cari makan'. Came Saturday, he still had a slight fever, and we woke up pretty late as the movie finished on midnight. Malacca canceled, and Babai gave another suggestion, either we drive up to Genting, or we go to Kuala Klawang to look for bamboo. He even mentioned Cameron Highland! What gets into him I wonder.

As we were deciding where to go, we went to have chicken rice nearby. It was quite disappointing, does not worth to mention here. In the end, we decided to go to Kuala Klawang as I still feel tired over my travelling and not wished to overnight anywhere else.

You may wonder what's up with the bamboo right? Hehe.. Babai has been talking many times about making 'pansoh', Sarawak or more specifically Iban style of cooking meat in bamboo. Why not, since Gawai last for one month and the Gawai Eve barbeque we had at a friends' place last Sunday left me feeling unsatisfied.

Klawang is located in between Hulu Langat, Selangor and Jelebu, Negeri Sembilan. All this while when I asked Babai to describe the scenery during his weekly riding, he would always say it's a country road and there is nothing to see. Obviously he was lying!

Beautiful isn't it??.. Just to prove to you I was there.


The roadside bamboo where we got some of our bamboo. Had war with leech in there euuwww.. I was pretty sensitive so I managed to ward it off before it bite me, while Babai was a bit unlucky he had two on his feet yuck!!

On the way back we bought some durians and mangosteen by the roadside. 2 of that durian cost me a whooping RM28. Despite feeling cheated because it has more biji than it was suppose to, it tasted great.

Called few friends over to share our food that night. We just love to share great food together with friends :D

Halal version of pansuh..

And the non-halal version :D

Life is great!

Pansuh? So far, i haven't eaten one since gawai. We had lots of BBQ. Hehehe BBQ panga and siok.

cyril dason : Angels & Demon is a MUST WATCH movie, much better than the Da Vinci Code. I'm not saying anything else to keep the suspense *zipped mouth*

Willie : Terminator is ok. I don't know why, but I think it's slightly better than the latest X-Men.
