Photo essay of sorts! Some stuff a bit backdated but it’ll bug me if I don’t blog them soon.
Saw this food item on the menu at a Japanese restaurant in Subang, Kinki Nitsuke. Pretty scary, isn’t it? Like simmered Nemo with all its cartoon eyes. I found out later that it’s a type of rockfish and a Hokkaido specialty. I wonder how many people ordered this based on the accompanied photo. Just seems wrong to me!
I tweeted this before but it’s too delicious not to be archived on my blog. Best discount ever!
Went for a media preview of the much anticipated Nokia N9, a MeeGo-based smart phone which I think has a LOT of potential… too bad about axing the platform :( In any case, I played with the phone a bit and thought it was quite responsive and multi-tasks very well. Got to get use with the ‘no buttons at all’ part, which I’m sure wouldn’t be an issue when you’re more familiar with the phone.
Quite awesome, really that I almost committed petty felony. Instead I sat my arse down and played Angry Birds on the Nokia N9. Very important test, that.
Very exciting phone. Malaysia will be one of the first countries to receive stock for the Nokia N9 in early October, w00t! The Nokia N9 16GB’s RRP is RM1,799 and the Nokia N9 64GB’s RRP is RM2,088. Celcom and DiGi will be offering phone + call plans for this phone soon, do keep a look out for it!
In other newly launched news, Kronenbourg 1664 is now officially in Malaysia!
Oh that was a couple of bottles they sent me as I couldn’t make it for the launch party ‘cos
I kicked up a fuss I’m awesome like that. It’s French, it’s wheat, the blanc version is crisp and a tad light (for me). Smooth and easy to drink.
Also went for a Kronenbourg media (heh heh) appreciation party where they feed you copious amount of food and Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc by the draught. My favourite kind of partayyy, yay!
Had dinner with some of my lovely Twestival KL organisers to catch up and to be really sad that Niki Cheong‘s leaving warm and humid Malaysia for cold and miserable (albeit at lot more artsy-fartsy) London for a whole year. Boo! :(
Ah well there’s always Twitter, I suppose. And e-mail. And G-Talk. Though no one expects him to stay in front of the PC much as he paints London red. By the way, BabyLian #1 is so cute.
