Ramen - Go Tokyo

I hate eating Ramen cooked by Singaporean or worse, PRC.

It's been a while since I went to Tokyo. Apparently, a lot has changed in the ramen scene, especially info available on where to get a nice bowl of ramen.

These are some pics from from various sites. Makes me hungry and want to hop on a plane to Tokyo.

Here are some blogs that you can check out before your Tokyo trip:

1) Ramenate, it hasn't been updated since June, I don't know why. Still it's a really cool blog featured by NY Times.

4) Supleks [In Japanese, you can use google translation]

LET'S GO!!!!!!!!

Save Your Old Macbook

If you have an old Macbook like I do and you want to upgrade, don't throw away. Use it as a media center or get a new big LCD screen and convert it to a desk top.

All the docks available in the market so far has not been well thought out until now.

I just bought my Hengedock.

"Each Henge Dock model is designed for a specific type of MacBook computer. Click your style of MacBook above to select the Henge Dock that is right for you. Included with each dock are a full complement of custom USB, Ethernet, Audio cables and in some models Firewire cables, designed to work with the Henge Dock system.

Our MacBook docking system reuses a customer’s existing Apple supplied MagSafe power source and Mini-DisplayPort to DVI adapter. If you choose to purchase a spare MagSafe Power Adapter or Apple Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter adapter we recommend you buy only original Apple accessories to guarantee compatibility."

It keep everything tidy and you can dock and pull out your Macbook anytime.

You can plug in all the cables and they're organized neatly.

Price is US$64.95, add US$38.25 for shipping to Singapore/Malaysia. I put in my pre-order months ago and it is made available this weekend. If you order now, you probably have to wait a bit but I think it's worth the wait.

The dock is available for all models but you have to go their website to check the availability of your model. If yours is not available, just sign up for pre-order. When your turn is up, they will email you to pay for your order.
Can't wait to get my hands on this baby.

How to Probe An Asshole - From The Expert

Juicy details from The Asshole Case:

Saiful's rectum was empty, doctor tells court

"The doctor had generated a buzz in court earlier when he disclosed that there were some photographs taken of Saiful during the medical examination, right after saying there were stains on the cotton padding used to swab the youth’s rectal area for further laboratory testing.

Asked if it included Saiful’s genitalia, Razali said no."

"Razali, now with Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (HUKM), eventually admitted to it under Sankara’s persistent questioning, adding there was a danger of contamination and cross-contamination in a second probe.

He also said it was not easy to carry out the proctoscopy examination on Saiful, even with the use of a lubricant.

He related that it took him two tries to insert the proctoscope — a narrow, hollow and transparent cylindrical tube made of plastic that looks similar to a test tube — into Saiful’s rear end.

Razali said the first time he used a saline lubricant, but found he could go only a short distance inside; so he switched to a gel-based lubricant for a deeper probe.

Any sudden introduction of any instrument into the anus would likely cause injury to the sphincter, a sensitive body part, the doctor said."

The moral of the story: Keep your ass safe!!!

More shit from Perkasa

The morons from Perkasa are not known for their intelligence. They come from padi field and the jungle. So you must forgive them for spouting shit. On 2nd thoughts, why should we?

The Orang Asli must wait for the government to provide their much-needed infrastructure, according to right-wing Malay NGO Perkasa.

“They (the Orang Asli) need to wait. (Prime Minister) Najib (Tun Razak) is taking steps to transform Malaysia,” said Perkasa Youth chief Arman Azhar Abu Hanifah.

 Asked how long the Orang Asli must wait before seeing results, Arman said it would take time. “Our country is big, and it is still young. It is only 53 years old,” he said.

[Come on la. Want to choose some one to represent your NGO also must choose one that doesn't look like a fucking moron right?]

What has the size of the country and age gotta do with what can be done to help the indigenous people? THEY ARE the bumiputra.

You see, the Melayus want us to respect them and yet they sent morons like this guy. I mean you guys have all the money in the world. Can't you just spend some money on a PR firm to help you? That's right, you're too stupid to do that.

More stupidity:
“If any countries have complaints about (how) the Orang Asli (are being treated), then they should come down to Malaysia and work with the government.”

Is this guy for real? Other countries has got nothing better to do then come and educate you? Shouldn't you be the one to seek out knowledge & education yourself?

Fucking moron.

HUAT AH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

4-D lottery is a national past time in Singapore. Same as in Malaysia for the non-Muslims. But I think it's worse in Singapore.

Every draw day (I think 3 times a week), loads of people will line up to gamble. Which is kinda funny to me, you line up to give away your money.

Even the monks get into the action. Which pretty much tells you how crazy that is.

If you notice carefully, some of these punters will hold the tickets in their hands and stare at each one intensely. I guess they are trying to figure out the numbers that they've bought will come out in the result.

Well, someone forgot to tell them IT'S COMPLETELY RANDOM!!! You fucking moron.

No matter what number you pick, IT IS COMPLETELY RANDOM. There are no patterns or sequences that you can calculate to get the next winning number. There are not enough data and quite frankly you don't have a super-computer to do the calculation assuming you've got the algorithm in the first place.

So next time you step up to the counter, don't be a fucking moron. Buy it for fun, don't buy it to get rich.

PS. - Since it's completely random, I'd rather buy Toto. For a wager of $1, I can potentially win more than half a mil. By comparison, the wager of $1 on 4-d, the max you win is a few thousand bucks.

Incidentally, there's a tree on Jalan Terusan (use google map, you idiot) identified by a red fire hydrant next to it.  Apparently it is particularly "heng". I never tried it myself because I'm once of those people that you might say has no "peen choy". 

You are free to go check it out if you are that crazy. But you gotta go pray at between 3:00am-3:15am during full moon. My buddy struck 1st price twice. Believe it or not.

Method: (according to him la):
Use two dices and throw four times: Outcome of 2-9, use those values. 10 = 1. 11 & 12 = throw again.

If you strike, please buy me lunch.

Nude Pictures!!!!!!!!!!

From Wikipedia:

A nudibranch (pronounced /ˈnjuːdɨbræŋk/)[1] is a member of what is now a taxonomic clade, and what was previously a suborder, of soft-bodied, marine opisthobranch gastropod mollusks which shed their shell after their larval stage[2]. They are noted for their often extraordinary colors and striking forms. The clade Nudibranchia is the largest clade within the heterobranchs, with more than 3,000 described species.
The word "nudibranch" comes from the Latin nudus, naked, and the Greek brankhia, gills.

Nudibranchs are often casually called "sea slugs", a non-scientific term. This has led some people to assume that every sea slug must be a nudibranch. Nudibranchs are very numerous in terms of species, and are often very attractive and noticeable, but there are a wide variety of other kinds of sea slugs, and these belong to several taxonomic groups that are not very closely related to nudibranchs. A fair number of these other sea slugs are colorful, and can be confused with nudibranchs.

These other marine shell-less gastropods or "sea slug" groups include additional heterobranch shell-less gastropod groups such as the Cephalaspidea sea slugs including the colorful Aglajidae, and other heterobranchs such as the Sacoglossa, the sea butterflies, the sea angels, and the often rather large sea hares. The term sea slug is also sometimes loosely applied to the only very distantly related pelagic caenogastropods within the superfamily Carinarioidea, and may also be casually used for the even more distantly related pulmonate sea slugs, the Onchidiidae.

Aeolidiella stephanieae. Typical body of a nudibranch with cerata consist of:
ot = oral tentacles,
ft = foot tentacles,
e = eye,
r = rhinophores,
c = cerata. This species has cnidosacs at the cerata tips.

The body forms of nudibranchs vary enormously, but because they are opisthobranchs, unlike most other gastropods they are bilaterally symmetrical because they have undergone secondary detorsion. Some species have venomous appendages on their sides. These are used to deter predators. Many also have a simple gut and a mouth with a radula.

They lack a mantle cavity.

They vary in adult size from 20 to 600 millimetres (0.79 to 24 in).

Their eyes are simple and able to discern little more than light and dark.[3] The eyes are set into the body, are about a quarter of a millimeter in diameter, and consist of a lens and five photoreceptors.[4]

They vary in adult size from 20 to 600 millimetres (0.79 to 24 in).

The adult form is without a shell or operculum (a bony or horny plate covering the opening of the shell, when the body is withdrawn).

The name nudibranch is appropriate, since the dorids (infraclass Anthobranchia) breathe through a "naked gill shaped" like branchial plumes of bushy extremities on their back, near their tail rather than using gills.[5] By contrast, on the back of the aeolids in the clade Cladobranchia there are brightly colored sets of protruding organs called cerata.

Nudibranchs have cephalic (head) tentacles, which are sensitive to touch, taste, and smell. Club-shaped rhinophores detect odors.

Shit You Say to Telemarketer

From time to time I get these calls from telemarketers. I'm sure everyone gets that. Mostly from either Citibank or some PRC scammers calling all the way from China.

Most people either say no or hang up the phone.

I propose you do these the next time you get these calls. After all if she's going to waste my time, I'm going to fuck with her a little bit. So to all the call centre morons like Citibank, fuck you.

Shit you say to telemarketer:

It doesn't matter what the caller says in any language, just follow the script. I guarantee you your phone number will be removed from their list and you'll never get a call from them again. EVER.

Telemarketer: "May I speak to so-and-so?"

Me/You: "Yes?"

Telemarketer: "Blah, blah, blah, yada, yada, yada..."

Me/You: "Are you wearing any underwear?" (Doesn't matter if the caller is of the opposite sex or not.)

Telemarketer: "Blah, blah, blah, yada, yada, yada..."

Me/You: "What color is it?"

Telemarketer: "Blah, blah, blah, yada, yada, yada..."

Me/You: "Can you take it off?"

Telemarketer: "Blah, blah, blah, yada, yada, yada..."

Me/You: "Can you touch your *&%$ for me?"

Telemarketer: "Blah, blah, blah, yada, yada, yada..."

Me/You: "How does it feel?"

Telemarketer: "Blah, blah, blah, yada, yada, yada..."

Me/You: "I feel like shit is coming out of my ass, do you mind continue talking to me while I'm taking a dump?"

Telemarketer: "Blah, blah, blah, yada, yada, yada..."

Me/You: "Wait don't hang up, we were just getting to know each other!!!"

Telemarketer: "Blah, blah, blah, yada, yada, yada..."

Me/You: "When are you going to call me again?"

Telemarketer: *toooooooooo* *Dead tone*

Food Review: Master Crab

Master Crab
Blk 475 Choa Chu Kang Ave 3 #01-31 Singapore 680475

This is one of our favorite crab restaurant. It's next to our vet. So whenever what?what? has to go to see the vet. We eat here.

I don't like fancy crab place that charges a bomb. Like that Roland Restaurant in Marine Parade. The food taste like shit and it's expensive. I went there because ieatishoot recommended. The crab that came to us was cold. Imagine eating chili crab that's cold. 

Back to Master Crab. Pretty sure the chef is from Malaysia. We usually eat crabs here and tend not to order too much.

The crab is fresh and juicy. The trick is to go choose your own crab. That's half the fun of it. Make sure you poke the crab a bit to see the fella's reaction. If the crab tries to fight back, that means it's "sang mang". The meat will be strong and tasty.

Talking so much about crab, I now need to go take a crab. [It's means I'm going to pang sai]

Food Review: Izakaya Nijumaru

Izakaya Nijumaru Restaurant
5 Koek Road #02-10 Cuppage Plaza Singapore

This is a well-known Japanese restaurant in Orchard. I know a lot of people has done reviews about it. But some Singaporean always have complaints about everything.

It's a very cosy restaurant. Earthy if I might say so. I liked it. My wife and I sat at the counter. There was a lot of chattering. The lighting was soft and warm. In a cool rainy night, it's just nice to huddle together and have some nice food.


We ordered some grill food. The mushroom was tasty. Very hard to grill mushroom, cooked but not burnt. Compliments to the grill station chef. We also had other stuff.

Yaki Soba. Japanese don't know how to stir-fry noodles well, but I just wanted some of that. So we ordered it.

Before we left, I itchy mouth and ordered a Yaki Onigri. It turned out that the outter crust was too burnt and hard. But for someone who likes a bit of "Chao Tah" taste, it might be up your alley. Yaoki in JB still makes the best Yaki Onigri outside of Japan.

Just before we left, two Singaporean guys sat down beside us and kinda don't know what to order. When the auntie waitress came to take their orders, one of them asked: "you got mee sua or not?" Yeah, got to Japanese restaurant and order mee sua. What a fucking moron....

Young Fucks and Sunglasses

This is another entry from my old blog.

Just took the wife to Bangkok for some shopping. The woman can shop for 7-hours straight!!! In one shopping complex alone. Anyway this post is not about Bangkok.

On the way back on the plane, on two separate occasions, I saw young idiots (one guy and one girl) wearing sunglasses. You might say what's wrong with that??!!???



What was wrong was that it was 10pm and the sun was long gone. Now why the fuck would someone do that at the risk of walking straight into a wall? I can't explain it. Is it because they think they are some kind of idiots like Kayne West?  

That leads to the other side of the coin. Why can't the idiots in KL run a proper library? I've not been to many libraries of major cities. But I have to say, Singapore has got the coolest National Library. The building is beautiful, the library is spacious and well designed. The best of all, it is highly user friendly. You can browse, read, check out, return books, CDs, and what-nots all without having to deal with any "counter-idiots".

In KL, you would have to deal with some kampong idiots behind the counter and you will spend 2 hours to check out one book. And all the English book will be house in some dungeon in Basement 11. 

Hum Yee

My favorite dish: Hum Yee & Porridge

 I think my underwear also taste like that... hehehehe.

How to Live Before You Die

Steve Jobs

This man has got to be the most interesting man to watch in the our generation. In more ways than a lot of head of states, he has had a big impact on how we live and communicate.

Let's put it this way, my knuckle head wife has been anti-apple all her life. But recently she got her hands on an iPad and all of the sudden she's SLEEPING with the damn thing. THAT's how powerful Apple products are.

If you are an investor and put your money in their company as recent as 5 years ago. This is how rich you would be today.

If you bought Apple in the week of July 10, 2006, you would have paid US$50.67. Today the same stock is worth S$300.00. You do the fucking math.

And a lot of people are saying this is heading to US$400.00. With a upcoming Apps store for Mac computers, I would not bet against the man.

Leave the company and products aside, the man's passion for life is da bomb. Right before Apple's amazing run, the man gave a speech at Standford University in 2005, it defines what most of us should do but few of us actually did.

And this is his latest product, I gotta have one of those. Sigh.....

Namewee 黄明志

His name is Namewee 黄明志. He's a rapper, short film maker, and I suppose a song writer too. But most of all, he has emerged as a brave and astute social commentator in Malaysia.

Chinese Malaysian has suffered decades of discrimination and hatred by the Malays who called us pendatangs and infidels. Most of our community leaders just pussy foot around the issue.

This guy is in-your-face. The Melayus tried to shut him up by using the police/special branch but somehow not able to make it stick.

So please go buy his album and show your support.

This guys has got balls, I tell you. Naturally I'm a big fan. I'll let him speak for himself.

Notice how the incompetent morons in TNB tried to cover things up. Totally shameless. Their salaries are paid by our tax monies.

Some Malay teacher recently spoke some nasty racist shit to Chinese students and asked them to go back to China. The bitch also compared Indians to dog.

This is Namewee's reply:

And this is his more recent video. I think his singing has improved a lot since the debut "Negaraku" vid.

The link to his blog is at the bottom of this page.
