Charlie Charles

Okay it’s Friday! Yay!

Since I have absolutely nothing to blog about because my social life is in a rut, here are some pictures of Charlie taken over the weeks.

# Here is Charlie right after we picked him up from the sitter. This is one of the rare moments where he actually looks happy. After spending the entire weekend at the sitter, reuniting with us tends to bring a smile or two to his dopey face :)

# See what I mean? This is him in my car. But this time he’s on the way to the sitter after spending an entire week with us. He loves his nanny aunty and all her family members :)

# This is him sulking because we’re watching TV, hence not giving him much attention. He’s so emo!!!!

# Charlie napping, all snuggled up in my armpit…

# This is a picture of my arm near my pit. How does this picture relate to Charlie? Well, before you decide that I have extremely hairy armpits, please bear in mind that this is the aftermath of Charlie snuggling in my underarm.

# This is Charlie, sleeping like a human being.

# This is Charlie being camera shy :P

Okay, till next week. Have a great weekend :)

Awesome siu yuk/roasted pork at Hai Lam Chicken Rice, Pudu

Ok, so I’ve been consistently taunted by members of #porkgang for having never tried this supposedly awesome siu yuk (chinese roast pork) in Pudu. Considering I grew up in Cheras and with its proximity to Pudu and all, I admit, it is quite embarrassing that I’d never heard of the place let alone tried the food.

So, after the Gatsby event at Berjaya Times Square, we decided to have the infamous siu yuk for lunch. Besides, the place is located practically behind Berjaya Times Square.

As I caught a glimpse of the unassuming corner kopitiam, ST pointed out the stall called Hai Lam Chicken Rice to me but all I saw was a row of roast chickens – no roast pork in sight. A long queue made up of hungry folks was visible. I tell you, at that moment my heart sank with disappointment. I was so sure that the siu yuks were already sold out. Parking was already a nightmare in that area and it took us a while looking for space. In the end, we decided to double-park. If you prefered peace of mind, you could park at Shaw Parade which is 2-3 minutes walk from the kopitiam.

When I joined the queue, I noticed a row of roasted pork slabs hung majestically at the back and suddenly, everything in my life was good again.

Beautiful slabs of siu yuk.

A lone man was operating the stall with an assistant helping him to take orders from people. After queuing up for a while I realised that the queue was only for takeaway customers. I could have sat down comfortably and waited for someone to take our orders -_-

Chop, chop, chop!

The man really did not skim on quality. My heart ached seeing all the perfectly roasted pork albeit a little charred get discarded. A woman next to me asked if she could bag them, but the man told her that he’s selling them to the Teow Chew porridge operators for cooking “choy kiok”, the delicious tangy stew made with various leftovers and lots of pickled mustard and tamarind.

A pile of roasted pork that didn’t make the cut.

We ordered 10 strips (RM13 each) and 1 whole roast chicken (price not sure). After what seemed like an eternity, the food came.

Check out this glorious sight…

Only a video can describe how much I enjoyed myself so watch this :D

Oh my lard, watching the video brings back so much saliva in my damn mouth!!!!!!

Last picture of heaven.

I know you want it so make it happen! By the way, they only start selling the siu yuk at 12.30pm so adjust your time properly ;)

Gatsby Deodorant Street Fair – Largest Blogger Gathering

Gatsby Deodorant Street Fair happened 2 weeks ago at Berjaya Times Square and thank goodness I was there because I got to participate in the largest blogger gathering in Malaysia, EVER!

Setting a record!

518 bloggers altogether, all wearing red t-shirts (some joked it’s reminiscent of Bangkok’s insurgency :P) gathered to set a Malaysia record….it was cool as hell!

Sea of red.

Of course, the record was officially announced by none other than Malaysia Book of Records so yeah, it’s a real one!!!

Real one :D

There were a lot of fun carnival games at the event and being a tard, I couldn’t resist testing my riding skills on the mechanical bull. Eversince watching Miranda ripping her shirt open on an episode of Sex and the City, I was determined to ride a mechanical bull as sexily as she did.

Some dude on the bull.

Well, you’ve probably seen it coming…yes, I failed max. So much so my pendant snapped right off of my necklace -_-

Feel free to watch how I embarrassed myself in public.

And then, as if the embarrassment was not enough, I proceeded to cajole Niki into participating in a gladiator fight, with…guess who? Me. I’m sorry Mother for I know no shame.

Warming up with Niki.

Stepping into the arena.

FOR GLORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Watch how Niki pwn my sorry arse. Damn Jupiter’s cock -_-

And watch ST vs 4’9″ lolololoolooololololololo

Ok enough of stuff that I don’t want my children to see next time, here are some more dignified pictures from the event.

ST with fangirls.

With Michelle (the one who needs to get a Blackberry pronto) and Fresh (the one who doesn’t know you’re tweetjacking her even if you’re doing it right in front of her).

More events like this please, Gatsby!
