Quick Small Town Tour in Malaysia

Just went to a small town of Malaysia and have a quick tour to take some fresh air after a long staying in a ‘Building Forest’ in Singapore. Look! You can only see low building here!I did like to see those tall buildings, I like to see the different designs of the building structures, but sometime I also like to observe those low building especially those without and taller buildings behind them, that was a different feeling to me.I always like to eat! Very nice Nasi Lemak at 'Old Taste Cafe'Nice Nasi Bryani at the restaurant at Larkin, JB’s bus station

Unknown Worm

Just saw this big size unknown worm on the pedestrian walk near my house block. Thought it was dropped from the tree due to wind blows or raining.It was about 6 inched long! It was quite scary to me. I thought it was a toy while I first looking at it, because it skins was a bit shinny like plastic or silk fabric.

Large Size Caricature Painting

Saw from today’s news paper and knew that the new Tampines 1 shopping mall having an official opening tomorrow, usually there are some performance and free gifts for the shopper on that day like balloon sculpture and etc. One of the items they are going to present to the shopping on tomorrow (18 Jul and 19 Jul) will be Australian Brad Blaze’s Speed Painting and Caricature that was very interesting.

Brad Blaze is an ambidextrous artist and the way he paint was using a twist-able painting board the paint in an unusual way using his both hands from unexpected angles!He is very creative and talented! The most important thing was the way and prop of his performance was real original!You can see his youtube capture at:

Steamed Pork Belly with Home Made Sauce

Just bought some pork belly and did it in steamed way for today.I cut the pork belly in about few cm per piece and pour some teriyaki sauce for a while then deep fry in hot oil until golden brown, then put them in a plate and pour some cold water to wash the meat. Then I pour in the home made sauce which contained garlic, onion, gingers, 1 stick 2-3cm cinnamon stick, 2 star anise, then a teaspoon of oyster sauce, Kikkoman soy sauce, ‘Hua Diao’ wine, a small piece of soya bean curd, sugars with some water. (the quantity would depend how heavy of the taste you like it to be)I just used my indution cooker steamed it in 200C degree for 1 hours (you can try 1-2 hours)to get it done, the meat will became soften, especially the fat portion of the pork belly will be taste great instead of the oily feel, I guest because of the effect of the long steam process.Just fry a long vegetable ‘Chye Sim’ from Cameron, Malaysia for one more dish of the day.

Two hand’s Calligraphy

I am the one who use two hands to draw in Singapore, or I am one of the artist who draw using two hands (because nowadays could be more and more artist using two hands to draw in Singapore), then this calligrapher was much more better then all of us. Look! He can use his leg to grab the calligraphy brushes to write, one hand holding 2 calligraphy brushes to write and having lots more special writing unique skills!That’s what I talking about. This calligrapher is Mr Tan, sometimes you can see him doing busking at Ang Mo Kio Central area.
