i wantz the nokia e75

went to the launch of nokia e75 last night at saffron, solaris. wow the food was really good. it’s not often that you want to sample everything from the buffet line, you know.

i really like the e75. it’s got a full qwerty keyboard AND an ordinary keypad! like the legendary nokia communicator but way slimmer and sleeker! the reason why i had stayed away from the e series is because of the integrated keypad/qwerty which my abnormally proportioned hands can’t handle.

the phone seemed fast and responsive, a far cry from the sluggish n96. and the camera was pretty decent too as the button was easy to press hence it helps to reduce a lot of shake.

the phone has the built-in latest Nokia Messaging Service which supports most 3rd party emails like gmail, yahoo, ovimail, hotmail and many more. push mail ftw but not too sure on the battery life of the phone.

my nokia n82 is still going strong and it’s the love of my life. but this e75 is really tempting. RM1950…can or cannot?

Making glutinous rice balls (tong yuen)

Took me 3 times to get it right but no matter, because at last I managed to satisfy my tong yuen craving which had been bugging me for the past week. The previous two failures were due to my own carelessness. I used rice flour instead of glutinous rice flour. The balls made with ordinary rice flour ended up hard as pebbles and still floury on the inside….they were disgusting.

So, ladies and gentlemen. Remember, to make tong yuen, tang yuen or glutinous rice balls…GLUTINOUS RICE FLOUR is your friend. Tepung pulut. Loh mai fun.

And while twittering about my tong yuen making adventure (or failures), so many people remarked how easy it is, how it’s not considered cooking cause it’s so easy, how to make them properly, etc. Talk about superiority complex! Some people do get it wrong, you know. People like me. People like me who make tong yuen until they’re on the verge of tears because the damn balls wouldn’t float!

And so, here is a pictorial guide in making tong yuens that will float when they’re cooked. First of all you need a couple of ingredients.

1. GLUTINOUS rice flour.
2. Water
3. Ginger
4. Gula Melaka (for the filling, of course you can put other filling also like azuki/red bean paste, peanuts, use your creativity etc)
5. Honey rock sugar (for the soup)
6. Pandan leaves (for the soup, optional, i can’t be bothered)

#1 – Glutinous rice flour.

You’ve probably noticed that I haven’t given any quantity. I don’t cook like that. I eye, and so should you.

Evidently I was not an anti-socialite.

Suan‘s been complaining that I was being an anti-social. Where got?

So here are some evidence of non-anti-social behaviour:

I attended Dell’s Colours party at Centro where Erna won a Dell Studio Hybrid PC for being the best dressed. WTG!

Camwhoring in the toilet.
Full length mirror in the ladies…how could I have resisted?

I also went to Nuffnang-Nokia Silent Halloween Party where I put up together a costume at the 11th hour. I used my very first prom dress (which was a little snug -_-), a black feather boa I never used, a lot of baby talcum powder, black eyeshadow and black eyeliner.

Voila…Morticia minus the height and plus the girth. Ah Pau, you are correct!

Morticia wannabe

But most people whom I asked to guess my costume, said “Elvira”. And I had no bleeding idea who Elvira was till I googled.

This is Elvira..

Elvira

And this is Morticia..

So, Elvira or Morticia?

In my opinion the best costume of the evening was Joe, who went as Kurt Cobain. He did all the makeup himself and you could read how he painstakingly put his costume together here.

My favourite costume was the Paris Hilton though. Hehehe.

Paree and me.

He/She’s none other than Rui, who did not just come to the party in Paris Hilton’s clothes, he totally played out his role. I love! By the way, he won a Nokia 5320 XpressMusic phone for the best costume in the female category haha.

With Yatz
Ah Yat seriously scared the poop out of me. He was really scary as Sadako!

Party was a lot of fun. Food was good. Music was great. And the highlight of the evening, silent dancing! We wore our earphones and started dancing to a pre-installed list of music by DJ NickyC. Kellster even won a Nokia 5220 XpressMusic phone for being the best silent dancer! w00t!

And Nigel, the tireless videographer of the evening won another Nokia 5220 XpressMusic phone for having the best post on the party. Check out his videos here. Congrats :)

So how can you say I’ve been an anti-socialite?

Yeah sure, I have been neglecting my blog. But that’s what you do when you’re pre-occupied with other more important things in your life, innit? Like going back to see my dog at my parents’ where internet access was limited by a Dota playing fiend of a brother. Speaking of which, here are some new pictures of our Sisi.

Her hair has grown a little…she’s looking more lady-like again :)
