Ladies and Gentlemen, here’s another pimp post. This time we got Penny, with her femmes pennypupz blog. She’s been telling me that she wants to have a date, so lets fix one up for her shall we? As usual, you can find the previous pimping entries.

Name: Penny
Age: almost legal, I think.. =/
Weight: don’t ask, but abit chubbier than me lah
Height: tall, like 5’7 or something like that
Speciality: camwhoring
X factor: they said it’s the mammalian glands, I wouldn’t know.

Now, to many of you who read Penny’s blog, this girl needs no introduction. She goes to church, but don’t be fooled thinking she’s a hardcore religious young lady for she confessed that she sometimes fall sleep there. She also cooked up an About Me page on her blog, so take a look there to know more about her.

photos abit dark lah, she covered the moonlight.. =/

To date her:
So guys, don’t be hesitating, she’ll be the perfect companion for you in a great outing. If you are the indoor type, I’m sure she has something in her sinister mind too! So let the bidding begin!


It was reported by an unamed but yet reliable source that Peter Tan has taken the money and ran. The report also came with this exclusive photo of the said event!

p/s: aiks i misspelled embezzlement, but i’m leaving as it to not break the pps linkage

Following the first puasa trial last week, I decided to do it again since there was this free buffet dinner sponsored by a particular company. The buka puasa (break fast, no, not breakfast) place is at Saloma Theater Restaurant at Ampang, near KLCC, and right next to Zouk.

very nice, high class setting

We arrived there about 6:45pm and there were already hundreds of people there. There was a stage, with some local boyband trying to entertain the crowd best as they can with their dry throats. My colleague Moorthy and I were the two non-muslims in our group, and I spotted maybe a handful of other potential non-muslims. We were definately the minority representing perhaps 2% of the crowd, but were treated the same like everyone else. Well, I did puasa for the day too though, had my instant noodle at 5 am.

The buffet line is huge, the offering includes chicken, lamb, beef, fish, prawns, various malay kuih, ice kacang, otak-otak, satey, rice, briyani rice, teh ice, soya milk, syrup ice, and more. As suggested by delia, I started out with dates and cold soya milk.. well, since they didn’t have those wholesome ones that came out of the cow’s multiple breasts. I then proceeded with fried chicken wings, cucuk udang (fried shrimp cake), rice with beef rendang, raw vegetable, crab, eggplant, okra, and some raw vege with sambal.

buka puasa at Saloma Bistro, Ampang
my stomach was very very full…

Since they practically serve all Malay food imaginable, gluttony was unescapable. We ended up sitting there to rest for another hour after the meal just so we can manage to move our limbs in a coordinated way that resembles the bipedal walk. The food was good, but somehow a little bit more salt or soya sauce would make it just perfect.

Jack0 puasa on monday, and Bryan said he was doing it too. Best.

P/S: Please invite me to your Hari Raya open house. hehe.

Takoyaki, or Octopus Balls, but not Octopus’ Balls, is a Japanese delicacy made with chopped octopus, cabbage, green onion and pickled ginger all wrapped a flour and egg shell. There are also some Japanese named ingredients that I had no clue. You can find a sample of recepi here, though it’ll be hard to cook it at home since you’ll need the mold.

Takoyaki at SS15 Asia Cafe
Topped with mayonese, yummm

Asia Cafe at SS15, Subang Jaya, just happened to have a stall serving Takoyaki. They come in a package of 6 balls for RM 4.00, a pretty reasonable price. Please do not eat it straight away when they’re served cos usually they are very hot and will easily burn your mouth (just ask ST.) The taste is pretty rich and quite greesy but managable. Overall, with the mayonese topping, it’s pretty good for finger food, or when you just want to cram that extra 8000 calories in your system. You’re all skinny, right?

Huey Fang says it’s teh delicious

Similiar stuff is served in 1U Jusco at ground level. It is slightly more expensive but comes in extra varities, such as the Unagi balls. I have yet to try it there.

uno exercise
UNO, the game you have most likely played when you just about knew how to stop peeing in your pants, is a fun and exciting card game. It was a slow weekend, and since we don’t wish to gamble for money nor to force each other drink alcohol (that would be FA’s choice). We put in a very healthy reward and punishment system for the noobs.

It goes like this:

  • When you win, you get nothing other than bragging rights.
  • Loser with the 2nd highest card count gets to deal the cards for the next round.
  • Loser with the highest card count gets to either do push ups, sit ups, or a humiliating squat and stand exercise while holding both ears. To the number of cards you have on hand.

exercise with uno game
Isn’t this a healthy game?

I did about 40 push ups, horny did a couple dozens too. Carol was the real athlete, she did over 40 sit ups, a couple dozen squat and stands, and probably around 10 floor hugging push ups. Huey Fang and Chan got away without having to do anything tho.. those lazy noobs. hehe.

We used to play the Chinese card game Big Two (chor tai tee) that way too. But if the game ended and you have 13 cards on hand.. it’s a painful 39 push ups… Try it, and get healthy!
