Ah Lang fried fish dumpling Ipoh hor fun

This is a simple dish but it tasted reasonably good. The fried fish dumpling is crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside. The filling inside is quite salty but I can still accept the strong taste of it. Guess some find it a little too salty to their taste bud though. The portion of this dish might be pretty small for some. 

Price: 2.7/5

Finally watched 一泡而红! The story flows quite well though it was quite draggy. It was a first production from Michelle Chong which I thought it was commendable. This show could relate more for viewers who wanted to pursue their dreams to be a star when they were young. 

Initially, when I watched the trailer, this seems to be a comedy film. However, it appeared to me more towards a light hearted show for youngster out there to strive and pursue their dreams. Though there were humor elements in it, I think more should be injected. 

And I like this quote that was mentioned in it: When there's a will, there's a way. Things might not appear that smoothly but if you work hard and do not give up, you can succeed one day. 

It reminded me the times where I had the chance to be an extra. During those time, I remembered I have to find things to keep me occupy because I have to wait a very long time till to be called out to act. Though the earnings were small but at least I get to experience doing it where many other did not get a chance. View some of my acting experience entry here:

Watched Parker with my dear G.K.N.I! It is not a yearly affair after-all. Alright, shall review on this film. 

If you love action-packed and violence, I guess this is a show you MUST watch. It focused more on that area I felt. However, the plot was rather fast-paced which I liked. Though certain scenes were draggy, I thought it kept the viewers engaged, in wanting to know what happened next. 

Initially, the story was quite messy with the before and after scenes but the puzzle was made known while watching it. Nice that it injected certain humor which lighten the heart of the viewers over certain gore scenes. I like this character who was fast in thinking and strong headed.

Quite similar to Jack Reacher which focused on a certain character, but that one involved investigation and more thinking with a better flow. As usual, no subtitles again! Should have english subtitles so that I could relate better!

One good direct and fast-paced film!

I think this film is good though not the best out of the 20 shows he did, but still commendable. Maybe I had high expectation thus slight disappointment. As usual, this show touches many Singaporeans heart. The scenes captured many emotions that we could easily relate.

Ah boys to men 1 seems to has more humor as compared to the second one. However, in terms of story as a army soldier, the second one did well. Think it certainly bring back many memories for the army boys and they are the ones who could relate even more.

Though I am from police, I might not fully know what an army soldier went through, especially the time in the muddy jungle. However, I have to say that we still did serve our nation, we still did went through training. Though a different one but the treatment is not exactly that good too.

Nevertheless, this film wanted to tell ah boys out there to strive and be a good soldier during BMT. And yup, I guess it bring across and make some sense to the ah boys there, isn't it? Ultimately, I think it still depends on individual and own perspective. And remember, One for all & All for one! Leave no man behind!

Wow! Its already 年初四! Am gonna share with you how I spent this lunar new year!

On new year's eve, had simple dinner at home! Simply love mum's cooking! Nice! Blissful time with family!

On 年初一, went to my uncle's place to 拜年. Usually, we will make our way there for visitation. Though it is a yearly affair, I think it is good to update one another lives. Am glad to see everybody doing well! Guess instead only on CNY, should have taken more initiative in order to maximize our relationship even better. However, in Singapore, this busy small country, I think is rather difficult. Do you agree?

年初二, relatives came to 拜年. My nephews and niece are just so adorable. They are just too active to sit still but instead kept running around the whole house, playing my brother stability ball. Do you know how big the ball and how small the kids are? 

Thus, decided to bring them down the void deck to play instead. Besides the ball, brother also brought his floorball stick down. Since He is a floorball coach, He educated the kids on the proper way to hold and play with it. Nice! Indeed, fast learner! And yup, had fun!

Actually wanted to visit grandma but due to time constrain for our movie, decided to visit her some other day. And yup, movie was Ah boys to men 2! Jack Neo's production! The review for this show will be in the next entry!

年初三, went Dorling's place just to relax and chill with dear church mates. Some are playing card games while the others are watching movie. And yup, watched 鬼也笑 The Ghosts Must Be Crazy yet another Jack Neo production. This show is not exactly creepy and funny but it is a good film for CNY I thought. It still brought some laughter to many. 

After which, met Trois for dinner! Impromptu outing but still a great one. Had seoul garden and it cost us a bomb! Decided to have it since its the CNY! Eat till bloated and had great chatting session! Have known this bunch for years! Hope the friendship will keep counting on and on~

During young, always looking forward to the CNY because of the red packets I guess? As you grow older, CNY seems to be just another day where you get together with loved ones. Nevertheless, Thank God for the wonderful occasion where we get to gather and learn more of each other. ((:

Watched The Expatriate yesterday evening. Decided to catch this film because the trailer looked amazing! 

I feel that the story flows well though certain scenes are messy. This is a mysterious film which keep viewers in suspense. Similar to Taken but this one here has more action-packed moves and intense scenes which brings up the show.

The plot was revealed fast without any climax or excitement. It ended a little too swiftly for me I thought. 

Overall, it is a decent thriller movie. As usual, it will be even better if there is subtitle so that I could relate better to the show.

Went Sakuraya with church mates for dinner. The restaurant look spacious and pretty. Hot green-tea was served for free. Ordered Sashimi & Yakitori, I like the sashimi because it is very fresh! The yakitori tasted good though I thought it can be better. The price is rather expensive but I guess it is good to pamper yourself once in a while ya? 

When I place my 2nd order for yakitori, it came rather late. Think that will be something to improve on.
