My 2nd week in Kemaman!

Uhhh, there it goes, the end of my second week of internship in Kemaman, Terengganu. This week is kinda interesting, I get to touch and disassemble several equipments such as Monolock, refer below:

What its function? Search it in Halliburton's website. Anyhow, I got a new companion, it's Casio G-Shock! Ah well, it's the cheapest G-Shock available in Kemaman. The reason I got it just because of safety purpose, whereby metal watch is not allowed in the workshop. Reason? If metal watch got hooked, it will not break easily compared to leather, rubber and silicon materials. Tell you what, I hate digital watches! LOL!

Now now now, let's talk something else... What else can it be? Foods for sure! On the first day of second week in Kemaman, which is Sunday, I had mee kari @ Ramlah Mee Kari Kemaman for dinner! In english, it's curry noodle.

Trust me, the photo above doesn't lie! Its tastes super duper awesome, especially the thick and spicy curry! Definitely will go there to torture my tummy again, someday. On Monday night, I had rojak ayam @ Restoran Selera Awie.

My oh my... This is waaaaay much nicer than the one I tried previously (check out "my 1st week in Kemaman"). Best of all, I get lotsa stuffs with RM5 - potato, egg, toufu, fried chicken (quite big) and noodle. *Slurp slurp* Next, on Tuesday night, I tried nasi kukus @ Che Mah Nasi Kukus. Nasi means rice and kukus means steam, so literally, it is steamed rice.

Nom nom nom! Pretty good, but I prefer nasi kukus from Marina Beach, because the chicken there is bigger, crunchier and more spice! Oh well, I had it for my lunch, so I did not snap it, perhaps next time. On Wednesday night, my mind goes blank and don't know what to eat, so...

I ordered Rice Plate from Kentucky Fried Chicken... I guess I don't have to describe the taste... Next, on Thursday night, I simply entered Restoran & Kafe Limbong and ordered mee ladna.

Hmmm, how shall I describe this... Let's make it simple, I think it's the combination of fried noodle with thick soup? Ah lol, anyway, the taste is not that bad though! Worth trying. Next next next, on Friday night, I simply head to A&W and get Coney dog!

Nom nom nom~ Saturday, is the day which I anticipated my family to come up to Kemaman to pay me a visit! So, the first place we went is the beach at Awana Kijal Golf, Beach & Spa Resort. Here's the beach.

Anyway, on our way to Awana, we stopped by the food stalls by the road side to fill our stomach. In general, the foods at there are mainly local foods, such as lemang, satar and otak-otak. In general, lemangsatar and otak-otak will be grilled over fire.

Basically, the main ingredient of satar is fish and coconut. Pretty nice and spicy! Worth the try.

As for otak-otak, the main ingredient is fish and spice. To me, the taste is kinda common, maybe because I'm used to the taste of otak-otak from Malacca? hehehe

As for lemang, it's pretty cheap there compared to Kuala Lumpur! Based on KL price, if you add another RM2, you'll get additional 2 sticks of these lemang in Kemaman, 3 for RM10! Most importantly, the lemang here is far nicer than those in KL!

As for our dinner, we head to the most popular seafood restaurant in Kemaman, which is Restoran Tong Juan! The main dish is the famous stuffed crab!

Now, I'm not gonna talk about its tastes, go give it a damn try! Basically, the crab shell is stuffed with crab meat and all sorts of stuffs like vegetables. Seriously, give it a try, because it's only available within Terengganu and the nearby places. We also ordered mixed vegetable soup.

Hmm, what I like about it is, it's free from Ajinomoto, I think.... Anyway, this soup is common, so let's proceed with sweet-sour-I-can't-remember-what-fish.

Nyummy! Super tasty, fresh and crispy! Last but not least, my sister ordered I-can't-remember-what-flavour-lobster!

It's my first time eating lobster, it's kinda chewy though. BUT... OMG, RM130 for few pieces of its chewy meat... I don't think it's worth trying... Overall, it's was full satisfaction by having dinner @ Restoran Tong Juan!

On Sunday, we have no idea where to go, so, we went to...

Urm well, the photo won't tell you where it is, unless you been there? Anyway, it's Cherating beach @ The Legend Resort. The day was no so nice as it was very cloudy on Sunday. Before my family head back to Kuala Lumpur, we had bak kut teh for our dinner.

You must be asking me where's the photo? Uhhh crap, I've forgotten to bring my camera with me. No worry, stay tuned and I will go there again!

My 1st week in Kemaman!

Well, waddaya know, time passes really fast and it's the end of my 1st week of internship in Kemaman Supply Base (KSB). Oh yeah, 11 weeks to go and I think I have not let everyone know in which company I am doing my industrial training. It's Halliburton Energy Service (M) Sdn. Bhd. *wink wink*

No matter what field we are in, safety is always first! Always... On the 1st day I stepped my feet in the office, I was given 2 Red Wing coveralls, 1 safety helmet and 1 pair of Red Wing safety boots.

For individuals who are not local, they will either be placed in home stay, staff house or else hotel. I think for first timer like me will be placed in hotel, Hotel Shafura to be exact. Find me there within these 12 weeks! Anyway, I was placed in Tubing Conveyed Perforating (TCP) department and below is the workshop.

Things haven't get busy so far, but I think on 2nd week onwards, my hands will start to get "polluted" with lubricants... Anyway, let me introduce you Kemaman! Throughout my 1st week in Kemaman, I've conquered Bandar Chukai or Cukai! (Bandar means town whereas Cukai means tax, I prefer to name the town Chukai) Basically, Bandar Chukai is a small town of Kemaman and there's where my hotel located.

Kemaman is not only for oil & gas companies, because, fishing activities were also been carried out along Sungai Kemaman and South China Sea!

The main road of Bandar Chukai is Jalan Sulaimani. Uh, it's a real busy road and not easy to cross over... Really...

The photo above is not lying, it doesn't looks busy because traffic light is behind me! Now, let's talk about foods! Yea foods, foods and foods! On my first night in Kemaman, I simply walk in Restaurant Haniey and ordered mee goreng mamak or known as fried noodle mamak style in english!

With the exact amount of spice, less oil and large portion, the mee goreng mamak is... Uhm, I've to admit, it tastes delicious! I would recommend to those who like mee goreng mamak! On the 2nd night, I simply went to Restaurant MZF and ordered mee rojak ayam or known as chicken noodle rojak in english.

Looks mouthwatering eh? Give it a try! It tastes good! Only thing is you gotta request them to heat it up, because the rojak kuah or paste is served cold... Following night, I walked further down for dinner and I entered Teratak Simple for its nasi dagang or literally known as trading rice.

Hmm, I would rate it 6 out of 10. It's not because of the bad taste that I rated it that low, and not because of switching the fish curry for chicken, but it's because the dish is lack of shaved fried coconut!!! Really that Simple?! It spoils the name of nasi dagang... Next night, I went to a famous coffee shop in Kemaman, that is Hai Peng Kopitiam Sdn. Bhd.

I was starving that night and so I ordered the curry puff (too hungry so did not snap) and the biggest dish in there, which is Italian pasta with Asian touch! OMG! Know what I'm gonna say? IT'S SUPER TASTY! The "Asian touch" is Tuna fish. Do give it a damn try if you were in Kemaman! Then the following night, it's kinda disappointed in Restaurant Al-Baik...

First of all, I anticipated to try the Double Zinger Burger from KFC, yet, Kentucky wasted my precious 45 minutes on queueing (2 more person my turn) then it suddenly blackout... Damnit!!! With frustration, I entered Restaurant Al-Baik which is a mamak shop and I simply ordered mee goreng mamak. Expecting a fried noodle mamak from a mamak would taste delicious, but IT WAS A TOTAL DISASTER! I finish it off and went to nearby bakery for extra foods...

Hehehe, although I failed to stuff my tummy with Double Zinger Burger, but, I never give up! I went to Kentucky Fried Chicken again, with the hope that it would not blackout...

Nom nom nom~ There it goes into my tummy! I think, still fried chicken from KFC is the best, not the burgers...  On Saturday, it was my offday, I thought of going to Museum Kemaman, hence, I went to pay a visit. Pity me, suffered 15 minutes of walking under hot sun and in the end, I get nothing... Thus on the way back, I rewarded myself with kuih apam balik from the road side.

Wuuu, not bad not bad! Worth trying but noob me, on the 2nd thought, I've forgotten that it's very heaty and not a good time to eat under bright sunny weather... Urgh, on the way back, I bought a bottle of 1.5L 100 Plus to "counter-attack" it. Anyway as for dinner, I went to Hai Peng Kopitiam Sdn. Bhd. again. This time, I brought back its nasi lemak.

Speaking of dinner and nasi lemak, I've forgotten I haven't touch them! Be right back and I will tell you how it tastes... *POOF*

OK I'm back peeps! Oh no, a nasi lemak is incomplete without egg, ikan bilis (a.k.a dried anchovies) and groundnuts... I didn't even realise while taking its sexy photos... But luckily, the sambal cooled me down! It taste sweet and spicy! Ngam ngam ho! Means just nice! As for the rice, really berlemak! Still, where's the egg?! The ikan bilis?! The groundnuts?! You don't deserve the name nasi lemak... Kidding kidding~ Do give it a try as well, because it's not expensive! Hell yeah, not expensive means cheap. Cheap means incomplete! LOL!

This sums up my 1st week in Kemaman. It work out well and I kinda get use to it except for not working on Friday... C'mon, Sunday is my rest day! How could you ask me to move my ass on Sunday?!

Anyway, do catchup my other blogpost yo~ Stay tuned for more updates!

Fried cook prawn noodle + tutu fish @ Sibuti, Miri

Previously, I blogged some details about dining at Sing Chiong Restaurant, Sibuti, Miri @ HERE. Now, here's another blog post that I'm gonna introduce "something special".

*Slurp slurp* I blogged the details of "fried cook prawn noodle" aka 炒煮虾面 in the previous blog post @ HERE. Anyhow, if you're one of the lazy person to click and read the previous post @ HERE, I will repeat the same thing as before. Normally, Prawn Noodle is red in colour, especially in West Malaysia, however, in Miri, or perhaps Sarawak, the noodle is fried with dark soya sauce, then, the noodle is mixed with hot water and turned into "sup" (that should explain the colour). Furthermore, the served prawns are fresh water prawns, instead of sea prawns, and most of prawns are full with prawn eggs. Best of all, the prawns are fresh!

Finally, I had the chance to try the signature dish of Sing Chiong Restaurant, behold~ Steamed tutu fish!!! Or well known as 乌嘟嘟.

What can I say? OMG, the steamed tutu fish has the iPhone 4S! Incredibly, it's
  • smoother than silk (haha can we eat silk?),
  • sweeter than honey (hmm),
  • smell better than perfume and
  • soft don't know like what!

It tastes best and feels kick when combine the steamed tutu fish with "fried cook prawn noodle"! Nom nom nom~ Seriously! So, if you don't know where is Sing Chiong located, simply check my previous blog post @ HERE! Now don't be lazy to find out! =P

Try or cry!
