BEST!!! Pan Mee @ Lucky Garden

When I was staying in Bangsar a few years ago, this is one of my regular spot for breakfast and lunch - Kedai Kopi dan Makanan Chun Heong 全香茶餐室

Here's a few recommended stalls, you can check out:
01) Pan Mee; (my favourite!!!)
02) Pork Noodle;
03) Wan Tan Mee;
04) Duck Noodle;
05) Mixed Pork Porridge;

Our order
Pan Mee

You can order, thin, thick or peel versions of the noodles. Then to have it soup or dry.

My Thoughts
This is my favourite Pan Mee stall, the best so far, I've tried (Jess, the 老母 of Joel couldn't agree more to that! ^0^). The texture of the Pan Mee is just nice, crunchy and right, not like some stalls, when you are eating it, you feel like you are chewing rubber in your mouth. @_@"

Then the gravy, mixture of soy sauce, shredded pork, "dog vege", spring onion, ikan bilis, with fried small red onions... WAH!!! think only I drool! wooOOOTTTT!!! ^0^

I used to order a RM5 Dry Pan Mee, which is not on the menu. LOL~

Pork Noodle 三间庄猪肉丸粉

This is the famous Pork Noodle Chain-stall, I believed it's a branched out from this old kopitiam (forgot name... -_-") at PJ State. You can find it at most townships within Klang Valley, such as SS2, Lucky Garden, S17, TTDI, etc... They even have a Koptiam Concept shop (air-con, nice interior, etc) at Lucky Garden (same row as, Chun Heong, next to Alliance Bank).

My Thoughts
It's very wise of the owner, to market their business as Chain-Stall, to expand the business. They serve the same noodles, same meatballs, same gravy... pratically identical, however, they don't taste the same. There are no consistency in the quality. Only a few stalls I prefered, i.e. the stall at Lucky at Section 17, the Concept Store at Lucky Garden, and of course, the original shop at PJ State.

They do not have a very mature duplication system, perhaps the owner would like to check out this book Copycat Marketing 101: How to Copycat Your Way to Wealth, to understand more.



Kedai Kopi dan Makanan Chun Heong 全香茶餐室 has the most Hakka stall operators, I've ever been to any Kopitiam in Klang Valley.

LOL~ and I feel HOME.

My thoughts 我的感言:
I'm so glad that I was born in the 70s, the era which gave us rich, original and memorable cartoons. The era of TRANSFORMERS!!!

I've watched this movie, over a hundred times (literally), and I still won't get bored with it. It's simply one of the best in our time.

The Essesntials of Nintendo DS Accessories

There are lots of accessories for DS available in the market, however, for me I choose & trust only - HORI. Simply because HORI is an established & reliable brand, when it comes to gaming accessories, not to mention, the officially licensed Nintendo accessories manufacturer.

Here's a list of my recommendations on the necessities and useful items to get for your NDSL:
• Screen Protector;
• Case Protector;
• Stylus;
• DS Card Case;

- - - - - - -

Screen Protector
This is a MUST!!! Anyone who says to you that you don't need one, he/she is either a noob, or a liar. This is the first and only accessory you SHOULD get upon buying ur DS. The touch screen needs to be protected, because scratched or damaged screen will result slow or irresponsive game plays.

Liquid Crystal Filter DS Lite

I've never tried other brands, however, this is the most popular one, used by most DS owners, with (I believed) zero complaints from users.

Due to its popularity, there are FAKE Hori Screen Protector in the market. You can find out more from - HERE.

This item is available at -

- - - - - - -

Case Protector
There are many different types of casing for different purposes/reasons, some for decorations, others mainly for protections.

Hard Pouch DS Lite

I bought this because I carry a waist pouch, almost 24x7. This will shield my NDSL from other objects while it's inside my waist pouch. Other then that, this type of hard pouch will have better protection/cushions comparing with other types, such as fabric types.

It is also easier to clean, all you need to do is to wipe the surface with a wet towel. Other fabric type, you can't wash them, because soaking it will destroy the thick paper board inside the cushion.

I can stuff NDSL x1, DS Game Cards x3-6, DS bundled stylus x1 and Touch Pen Attachment DS Lite x1, into this pouch.

This item is available at -

- - - - - - -

Touch Pen Attachment DS Lite

Better hand grip, and more comfortable to use, especially when it comes to heavy stylus based games, such as Ouendan,Moero! Nekketsu Rhythm Damashii Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan 2, Elite Beat Agents, Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo Tales, Picross DS, etc...

Cleaning Cloth
For screen:
Any microfibre cloth for spetacles/glasses will do. Just damped (it's DAMP, NOT WET) the cloth with your finger tip, then wipe the screen in circular form in 1 direction.

However before start, make sure the screen is free from dust or any particles, by using a blower (please don't use mouth, because ur saliva may stain the screen and it's not hygenic).

For body:
HORI: Cleaning Cloth

This is a piece of magic cloth, that will absorb all the oil stains on your DS.

This item is available at -

Additional Items

Over time, your library of games will expand, by then, you probably need a proper storage to store and carry your games. You can either get a HORI DS Card Case... or you can follow the LYN Ninty Forumers style - i.e.:

Empty RAM Slot Case

version 1.0 - by Mudmaniac;
version 1.2 - by Pr1me_Minister;

Storage Capacity
It can fit up to DS Game Cards x8 or Rumble Pack x1+DS Game Cards x4.

- - - - - - -

USB Power Charge Cable

This comes very handy, when your DS is low batt, and you don't have the DS Charger with you. Just connect the DS to a PC/Laptop via the USB port, and you can charge & play at the sametime. However, please take note, charging while playing will take longer time to have your DS charged completely.

The Coast Mudpie @ The Coast Southwest Grill

After dinner at Rakuzen on Friday night, we went to The Coast.

At the entrance, before the waitor gets to greet me, I asked: "Do u have mud pie today?". "Yes, we do sir.", he replied with a smile, as he can recognise me.

"U sure~ah? 1 Mud Pie PLEASE~!!! WOOOOOOTTTT!!!"
He smiled and lead us to our table.


My Thoughts
Picture Speaks A Thousand Words... let the mud pie speaks for itself!

故事摘要: - 取之於 Yahoo!電影


My thoughts 我的感言:
This is a movie about "Super-Human-Crime-Buster-Machine" Cops vs "Super-Human-Cop-Ass-Kicking" Crooks. Suxor story with, maximum violent. Not suitable for any human being to watch at all.

二十年前,香港拍的大部份都是一些有水平,帶有幽墨感及含有娛樂性高的動作電影系列。二十年後卻以"越血腥,越暴力"為題才的動作影片。真的是誰的電影越殘暴,就越賣座嗎?有這個必要嗎?這樣的電影,只會傳達不健康的訊息給觀眾(尤其是無知年幼的青少年)。香港影壇真糟糕! - Buy Action Figures, Video Game Merchandise & Toys and more!
