Ekee (Sabah) 3 Flavours Bak Kut Teh

I think it's called 3 flavours Bak Kut Teh because there are 3 options available for the bak kut teh broth - Original, Herbal and Black Pepper. I chose to try the original version today. The man and I shared a bowl for 2 persons for RM16.50. We could customise our choice of meats .... and we had spare ribs, lean meat, pork belly, and pig stomach.

The broth was clear ... and did not taste very strongly of herbs. I did not find the soup particularly special of course. Then the meats were of reasonable portions ... and I had to eat all of the pig stomach because the man did not eat them. I'd say that the bak kut teh tasted alright. One could have unlimited re-fills for the broth though.

Rice was RM1.20 per bowl, and the vegetables stir-fry were RM5.00 ... in the end, not sure how much we paid, cause the man's friend DS decided to treat us. Yayy! Thanks DS.

Ekee Bak Kut Teh is located near the Kuching Park Hotel at Jalan Ang Cheng Ho.

Are You Superstitious : Pomegranate Leaves

I saw a few sprigs of pomegranate leaves on the table this morning, and I thought that Dad was going to a funeral wake or something. Well, apparently not. It's nearing Qing Ming Festival. Normally, for this occasion, Chinese families would honour their ancestors at the grave site, cleaning and sweeping the tombs. My parents usually clean my grandpa's tomb ahead of the festival. It's quite troublesome as there's no water pipe nearby, and they have to carry lots of water to douse the tomb after all that scrubbing under the hot sun. Nowadays, however, there are people who offer tomb cleaning services. They even have business cards for ease of contact. Maria's business card Since my parents are aging, they decided to hire Maria to wash grandpa's tomb this year. Dad gave her a call last week and told her the designated grave to wash. The damage? RM60.00. Today, Dad wanted to drive all the way to the Teochew cemetary at Batu Kitang to pay Maria for her services.

Palace - Jade Lock Heart

My cousin WS left a bagful of Dvds at my house the other day, so I picked those which I wanted to watch. Palace had seemed to be one of them which attracted me. Well, I'd watched the Korean version of Palace and enjoyed it, so I wondered what the Chinese one would be about. Palace - Jade Lock Heart (Source : spcnet.tv) Of course, I didn't know it was a China production then. I'd thought it a Taiwan production or something. I mean, if I had known, I would not want to watch it. Gosh, I'm so prejudiced. Lol. Of course, I had not known then that Palace - Jade Lock Heart became a phenomenon in China after it was broadcast early in 2011. So much so that the popularity of its lead actors increased by leaps and bounds. That aside, the casts of this drama did include a few actors from Hong Kong, like Sonija Kwok, Maggie Siu and Kent Tong. As I started watching, however, I was enchanted by the beautiful actresses gracing the screen, and good-looking actors (despite their Man

Muka Bantal

Puan Hajah Serina Sauni is one of the best principals I've known. She is currently the principal of SM Sains Miri. I've listened to her 3 times on the same topic but she never bores me. She's a good speaker, always delivering her messages with lots of humour. She had us entertained even though her session was as long as 3 hours! One particular concept that struck me was what she termed as "Muka Bantal". Translated to English, it means "a pillow face". What she means is that some of us never take the trouble to dress up for work - going from our bed straight to work. Hence, we bore our students who have to look at our faces from 6.40 a.m. to 2.00 p.m. Imagine such torture they have to go through, looking at our drab appearances for such long periods of time. Well, it makes perfect sense. According to her, the students have to be interested in YOU first before they are interested in YOUR subject. Puan Hajah Serina says that we should all bowl our student
