OK, suanie‘s reverse psychology works, I am going to do this meme thing, grrr. For all you noobs out there, the word meme was first introduced by Richard Dawkins, an awesome evolutionary biologist.

Meme is the replicator of ideas and believes, or, a cultural unit. Read “The Selfish Gene” by the same author, if there’s only one Popular Science book you’ll ever read, read it, and not “The Fabric of the Cosmos” by Brian Green that I’m reading now, cos it’s difficult to digest, and I tend to fall asleep every few minutes. Makes an excellent insomnia killer tho!

Alrighty, lets get the meme thing going..

Seven things you plan to do before you die:

Some of you might have heard about the Segambut seafood noodle, but do you realise that they have an SS2 branch? and in fact, a Subang branch too. Now if you are a seafood lover like me, you should definately try Restaurant Yu Ai.

Segambut seafood noodle at Petaling Jaya SS2
Got clean toilet too, what more can you ask for?

The shop at ss2 is located behind the slighty famous Chow Yang kopitiam, and a few shops next to KAYU nasi kandar at Jalan SS2/10. Pretty easy to find, there is sometimes a yellow Lotus Elise sports car parked right in front of the shop, rumours to be the shop owner’s.

The main branch is on 42, Jalan Segambut utara, and the Subang shop is at 28-1, USJ 9/5P. The business card claims that the place is air-conditioned.

Segambut Seafood noodle at PJ ss2
See the prawn? All peeled except the head and tail, very the pro! I like!

The seafood noodle comes in 3 flavors, clear soup, curry, and tomyam. Personally I like the curry flavor the best, it carries a very rich and creamy taste. They provide chili paste in a container on every table, all you crazy people who loves to have their food overly spicey need not be worried.

The noodle, or kuih teow, or mee hun, comes with 3 big prawn, fish meat, sotong, and a generous serving of dried oyster and lala. Very very sumptous. At a price of RM 11 ringgit and RM 13 ringgit per bowl for the small & big size respectively, it is not exactly cheap (how else do they finance the Elise?), but it’s worth every penny.

My stomach is full, how about yours? hehehe

How many of you are sick of Starbucks and Coffeebeans? Places with somewhat decent drinks but basically no FOOD, and with lotsa Ah Bengs gathering at those places lately like vultures surrounding a dying elephant… er.. how to continue.. nevermind…

Update 30/6/2017: this place is closed

here’s how to get there, noob!

Introducing, TEAPOT Cafe at SS2. A place for tea lover, a drink with less caffien and won’t stain your teeth. Plus, it also makes you look slightly more sophisticated, especially if you can fake a British accent (something even the mat salleh can hardly do these days.)

nice teapots
nice environment yeh? just abit too many aunties tho. =/

Other than a handsome choice of tea, including the common Earl Grey, English Breakfast, to the more exotic fruit teas, they serve a variety of local and western food too. I tried their Chicken Kiev, and it was pretty good. Nice big flab of chicken breast with juicy butter & herbs trapped inside with the help of a few tooth picks. Yumm. Fish & Chips

FA at teapot cafe
FA said Hi, and made a FU Peace sign

This is a perfect place to bring your chick for a date and away from prying eyes of the Ah Bengs at Starbucks & Coffeebean. It shows that you have taste, or that you merely read this blog. If you don’t have a gf/bf, you can always be like me, bring someone whom you can somewhat confuse otherd to be your significant other, contrary to the reality. heehee


p/s: If you’re a hot chick and you would like to go there with me, drop me a mail!

Been a while since I give out any teka-teki (quiz), but here goes:

2 climbers, lets call them A & B, went climbing at Gunung Kinabalu, and they were going up agains the difficult wall. Almost to the summit, B lost his grip and fell down to the lower plateau.

A, being his friend and all, yelled “dude you ok…?

B: “OMFG i broke both my hands and my legs, shit is hurting as bad as delivering a quadruplet

A: “Aight mate wait up, I’ll get on top and pull you up.

So A climbed up, threw a rope down and started pulling B up… and that’s when he got curious and asked

Dude, you broke both your arms and legs, how am I pulling you up?

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh……. ” KAPIAKZ, was the next sound A heard as B plunged to his death.

Question is, how did B die?

Mouseover on the graphic below to get the answer.


Any koi keeper will tell you that the most important thing about a koi pond is the water parameter. In fact, some dude from forum has a signature that says “I am the water keeper, the kois take care of themself”, or something to that effect.

So I don on my white lab coat and become a scientist all over again.

testing koi pond water parameter
No, for the last time, these aren’t pregnancy test kits!

There are 4 tests I run on a regular basis to ensure that the water is in good condition. They are pH, Ammonia, Nitrite, and Nitrate level. The best condition for a koi pond would be a pH level of between 7.5 to 8, and the other 3 kept to the minimal.

KY testing koi pond water parameter
Results were not bad at all

The readings from this test:

  • pH – around 7.8
  • Ammonia – less than 5 mg/l
  • Nitrite – less than 0.3 mg/l
  • Nitrate – around 5 to 7 mg/l

While the readings were pretty good, the Nitrate level should still be lowered somehow. As Nitrate act as plant fertilizer, it causes algae bloom that makes the water green. If condition does not improve in the next few months, I might need to make a trickle tower dry filter to suppliment the current wet bio filter.

6 fishes now, still adding, will post pictures of them when the water gets clearer.
