Best Nasi Lemak @ Pasar malam Saberkas, Miri

Speaking of pasar malam (night market in english), there is only one in Miri, which always held on Friday and Saturday (exclude Ramadan market). It's not that big, neither too small. In case you don't know where is it located, here's a simple map for you. It's just opposite of the Boulevard Shopping Complex.

Anyway, as per title, I'm gonna introduce you the best nasi lemak (which I think apparently) @ pasar malam Saberkas. Or perhaps, it can be one of the best nasi lemak in Miri.

Ta-da~ Alright, it may seems very disgusting (uhhh)... It may look that bloody simple (yes obviously)... It may looks like very small portion (well it is)... But hey, try it and you gonna love it!

At pasar malam Saberkas, simply look for this banner...

It's the nasi lemak from Cahaya Delima.

Basically, the main ingredient that makes the nasi lemak here attractive is the sambal. There are 2 types of sambal for you to choose. Curious to know what are the 2 types of the sambal? Find it out by yourself!

Nah kidding. Well, 1 is super spicy sambal and 1 is not-so-sweet sambal. Needless to say, if you love spicy foods, then go for the spicy sambal. But, let me warn you first! The spicy sambal ain't ordinary spicy sambal, because it's ultimately beyond Godlike! Once you ate it, you gonna be a fire dragon! LOL! Even the kickest sambal of nasi lemak @ Selera Rasa Segar ain't that kick.

Anyway, after I had a "good" experience with this ultimately beyond Godlike spicy sambal, I will only order the sweet sambal. Yet, it ain't that sweet toooooo, I mean, still spicy sometimes (or did I ordered mixed sambal, who knows)!

That's it, the main concern here is the sambal, nothing else... Now that I've shown you the stall, do give it a damn try!

Opps forgot to mention, after expended the pasar malam Saberkas, the stall is located at the right end corner among the BBQ section.

Try or cry!

Site visit to IKBN Miri, Sarawak

On 15th April 2011, I've attended a site visit to Institut Kemahiran Belia Negara (IKBN) Miri and it was organised by my lecturer. Jeez, an extra site visit that is not included in our unit outline... Anyway, it will be beneficial for us, since it's related with our Mechanical studies.

Now now now, I will type out partially of my report here and I shall let the photos below do the talking.

Image 1: Main entrance of IKBN Miri.

Safety is very essential for everyone, thus, safety and warning signs can be found every corner in IKBN laboratories and work shops. Yea, I mean every corner!

Image 2: Safety signs.

Now, this gonna be interesting. I will briefly describe each section of the work shops here. Let's begin with conventional centre lathe section. It was found that centre lathe machine is the most common machine in this work shop. It has more than 10 units and each of the machine cost RM 145,618.00. Cool eh?

Image 3: Centre lathe machine.

In the same work shop, next to centre lathe section is the conventional milling section. Here, various types of milling machines can be found, such as the universal milling machine that cost RM 323, 136.00.

Image 4: Conventional milling section.

In the same section as the conventional milling section, few grinding and drilling machines can be found. The reason it is placed in the same section is to allow students of IKBN to do cleaning on the work piece's surface as well as making holes on the work piece before or after performing milling operations.

Image 5: Grinding and drilling section.

Speaking of safety, it was found that there are paper notes placed on the unworkable machines, such as "under maintenance". This could tell everyone that the particular machine is unworkable.

A part from that, more grinding machines can be found in the next work shop, such as the centerless grinding machines and hydraulic surface grinding machines. Surprisingly, the cost of each centerless grinding machine is RM551, 680.00 whereas the cost of each hydraulic surface grinding machine is RM 312, 472.00.

Also, few sawing machines can be found along these grinding machines, such as power band saw.

Next, the following section is the Computer Numerical Control (CNC) section. Here, several types of CNC machines can be found, such as the CNC die sinking machine, CNC wire cut machine, CNC turning machine and few ordinary CNC milling machines.

Image 8: Various types of CNC machines.

Among all of the CNC machines, there is one CNC machine that is extraordinary, which is the universal CNC milling machine. Amazingly, the cost of this machine is a bomb! Worth RM 1, 365, 546.00.

Hmm, I think that's it. Actually, there are more stuffs that can be discussed here. But, I only share what I think is worth to share. Among all of the machines, I love the Universal CNC milling machine (refer to Image 9), because, it's so gigantic and it worth a bounty! Let's rob it!

Friday's Syndrome

Speaking of "Friday", everyone tends to give negative feedback on Rebecca Black. In case you don't know what I'm talking about, you must be outdated! Nah kidding, simply listen to the first embedded video below.

The original version of "Friday" by Rebecca Black.

Now now now, don't complain to me that her voice is sucks or whatsoever. Don't even complain to me that the lyric is ridiculous. Well yeah, I knew that! It's pretty obvious and annoying!

Anyway, here's Hitler's reaction after listening to "Friday".

But hey wait, there are people like me who enjoying this song! Because of this song, lotsa versions are released on Youtube lately, just see the embedded videos below.

Bahasa Malaysia version.

Not long after, a Hokkien version is released.

Next, a Parody did by JJ & Ean from Hitz.FM. It's "Monday" instead of "Friday".

Then now, it's very unpredictable, even Glee is singing this song! LOL!!!

Yeah~ In conjunction with Friday, I had fun doing one thing on Facebook.

Yeah~ Spamming on my friends' wall with the lyric!

It's Friday, Friday
Gotta get down on Friday
Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend, weekend
Friday, Friday
Gettin' down on Friday
Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend

Partyin', partyin' (Yeah)
Partyin', partyin' (Yeah)
Fun, fun, fun, fun
Lookin' forward to the weekend

Should I sing a version of myself? Oh Gosh, this is stupid. I think I gotta control myself. This Friday's syndrome is getting worse!!!

Ordering chinese tea in Kuching

Each time I have oily meals outside, I will often order chinese tea to encounter it, especially during lunch time and dinner. However, during my stay in Kuching for 8 days, I've discovered there is one unusual thing in common.

Notice any differences compared to the ordinary chinese tea around you (except Kuching of course)? No? See further more...

Now can you see the differences? Uh, I bet you do. In Kuching, each time I order chinese tea, they will eventually serve me chinese tea in the form of tea bags. Woot woot~

More photos for you to see below.

Every shop, every hawker centre and every restaurant that I went during my 8 days in Kuching, all of the chinese teas were from the tea bags. No wonder nobody orders chinese tea in Kuching! (I do peek around LOL)

Well, I personally prefer the loose tea leaves. You may simply Google out and compare the differences between loose tea and tea bags. The fact is, loose tea is better than tea bags. Just read the following points that I've summarised, as below.

(1) The size of the tea leaves:
The smaller the size of the tea leaves, the lower the quality of the tea. Because, the content (chemical and essential oil) in the leaves can be destroyed!

(2) The taste of the tea:
Since the tea leaves in the tea bags are smashed into pieces (powder form), the taste may not as rich as the bigger tea leaves (the loose tea). Because, the loose tea has a better "ability" to swell and expand inside the tea cup or mug or jar or whatever it is, while the tea in the tea bags is limited since it's cramped in the little tea bags.

(3) You pay what you get:
As a matter of fact, tea bags are pricier than loose tea! Because, more works are required to produce the tea bags - smash tea leaves into powder form, pack them into its respective bag, seal the powdered tea leaves in the bag tightly, place a string and a paper, and arrange the tea bags in the box accordingly. Uh, more work, more money, yet, less quality.

Hmm. I'm not sure whether this is unusual or what. Based on my experiences, I never get before any chinese tea in form of tea bags. Maybe I'm just too...... Hehehe...
