Chicken soup is good for the soul

This translation is in the New Straits Times (p. 14 No to 'live' khalwat raid broadcasts') today:
"Gua cinta kat lu dengan seluruh hati gua" to "I love you with my whole liver". ;p

Somehow I don't think literal translation works very well here, if it all. Couldn't they translate it any better? This looks like something from Babelfish.

Anyhow, a random picture:

Chicken soup is good for the soul, yumm.

Just watched Amazing Race Asia. My first episode of Amazing Race in nearly 2 years. The emotions just rush back. Awesome.

Take two...

The traffic in KL is getting worse, especially on Federal Highway. Not that I'm not used to it already, but the jam starts earlier, and ends later. Today it took me 45 minutes to get from my place to Sunway Pyramid, at around 12.30pm, which is not even rush hour.

... and I was travelling at this speed:

:( Thankfully I brought a book with me ;p

Which brings us to what I wanna say today, that is, The Prestige is an Awesome movie. I say it again: The Prestige is an AWESOME movie. So awesome that I went out of my way to get the book by Christopher Priest to read and compare with the movie. I have only read 7 pages so far, but I have to say that I feel an awesome vibe coming from the book.

What I have read and finished these past 2 days however, is Train Man. I got the book on Saturday, and at night when I turned Astro to channel 39, lo and behold, they were showing the movie. After reading the book though, I declare that the book is much better than the movie. Absolutely amazing. The movie is good, but it just does not capture the emotions that is so evident in the book. And its not even a novel per se, but just a collection of posts on a online thread, about the protagonist Train Man trying to win the heart of a girl whom he saved on a train from a drunk. The problem is, Train Man is a geek, and has never had a girlfriend before (as appropriately put in the book, his age = the number of years without a girlfriend ;p). The posts are about Train updating his virtual friends as his relationship progresses and they offer him advice - some good, some awful.

Its a fast and fun read, and I'd recommend it to anyone who shares the same tastes as I do (;p), a warm hearted story about a nice guy loser going for a girl for the first time in his life :)

And finally, the meal of the day, Nasi Kerabu with something something (I forgot) at Laksa Shack, Sunway Pyramid:

Maybe I should start a blog

My mind is filled with a myriad of ideas for this blog, both grand and simple at the same time. However, I fear that it will, like many of my ventures, bomb out spectacularly (meaning that I'll keep this up for about 3 days and then go cold turkey completely).

Thus, I plan to start small and simple.

This is what I had for lunch yesterday. Plain and simple nasi lemak from a place called AJ Cafe in The Summit USJ. Not that they serve very special nasi lemak or anything, but I miss it from the days that I used to go there every week to play Magic: The Gathering and have this as a snack.

And for my friends who can't understand why I say I rarely eat out especially at mamaks, I'll just post a picture of my grandma's cooking here.

If I get something like that every night I don't think I need to go out to eat often ya?

Now this is how I think an April Fools' joke should be done.

Not sure if I pulled it off properly.

Do tell me if the effect wasn't quite as I had intended it to be.

Unfortunate that its 3 days after April Fools already.

Yah, but quit gaming? No way. At least, not just yet.
