Mee sup Tamparuli

Filed under: Food, Food Court, Holiday, Home — J Martin @ 10:37 pm

I guess this is the most famous food court at the tamu Tamparuli. Believe it or not, go ask the old ladies at the tamu. Located just nearby the famous Jambatan Tamparuli. Tamu Tamparuli, held every Wednesday. This food court has only small space, yet almost every second customers come and eat there. Some even willing to stand nearby to wait for their turn everytime the tables are fully occupied. Strangers sit together, they don’t/won’t care who they sit along with because the most important thing is that they can have a bowl of their favourite soup. I think the attraction comes from its low price menu and reputation. You can have a full bowl of soup and they will only charge you for RM3.50. Operated by two local Chinese ladies, assisted with their respective husbands and relatives.

My order of the day. Mi halus with chicken. Only manage to eat a portion of it because it’s too big for me. Next time I am going to order small size. But even the small size bowl is already too much, as I see it …

Home – Good and bad

Filed under: Home — J Martin @ 10:12 pm

Good things:

  1. I seldom feel bored. Many things to do, many walks, many visits, many talks, many jobs, many people, many relatives, many pets, many pleasant things, etc …
  2. Food. Most of the time the food is tasty, but sometimes it can be very plain. Good thing I am not a picky-eater, so basically everything is good to me … Got bosou, tuhau and other mouth watering local dishes …
  3. Seldom left alone. Got a bunch of nephews and nieces. Proud to say I am a quite popular uncle among them, haha … But sometimes they can be annoying though …
  4. Becoming trustworthy and can be relied on. Proud moment … respects from people, relatives, etc …
  5. Basically I am on my own when it comes to choosing daily chores. But sometimes there’s no other option, so I have to do whatever they want me to do whether it’s pleasant or not …
  6. Pleasant weather, whether it’s raining or dry. If it’s raining, I can bunk on my bed all day long … if it’s sunny or hot, I can always go swimming … Never complain … Whatever weather is good, unless we have something rather important things to do …
  7. Full resources for my hobby. Photography. Trekking. Etc …
  8. What else?

Bad things:

  1. Have to wake up early, everyday. No chance for late wake up because somebody will knock my door to wake me up. They won’t stop until I open the door or at least made a woke-up-already sound. Sometimes can be very frustating … arghhh!!
  2. Still under command of the big boss. Last time I am under his strict command, but now its become lesser and lesser because sometimes I retaliate when I can’t stand it, or deviate him to something unrelated, hehehe … I am a grown up, so basically I can decide myself about everything, right?
  3. Become a minor. Sibling rivalry or fight, that’s it … not a big issue actually, but sometimes they treated me like I am still a small kid. WTF? I am 26 yrs old already. Well, I am the second youngest in the family (not counting nephews and nieces), so basically it’s always me and my not-so-little brother become the target. Luckily I know how to dodge every shoot aimed at us … Watching them launching ‘war’ at each other was not really amusing …
  4. Neighbour free-roaming dogs. Fierce dogs. Enough said.
  5. Bad telephone reception.
  6. No internet connection … Can’t complain though … It’s understandable …
  7. What else?

Programs of the whole holiday break

Filed under: Daily Life, Holiday, Home — J Martin @ 11:20 pm

Kg. Nahaba, Kota Belud.


First week;

  1. There was a family reunion combined with birthday party for my nephew and niece. However, three people were missing. Two brothers-in-law and one nephew.
  2. Going out. Not my plan actually, I was forced to accompany someone …
  3. My turn to give ‘talk’ on a religious seminar was brought forward because of complicating schedule. I was given part although I am not religious. Seriously …
  4. Attended friend’s wedding party. Six hours drive from my hometown. Four to five stops because of engine-related problem. Another wedding party on the same day at nearby village but we skipped it because we were on our way to the far-away wedding party. Far away party was the priority. Reason? More sight-seeing …
  5. Another wedding party. It’s wedding anniversary actually. My neighbor has her wedding anniversary on Saturday. I went there twice because the food was plenty and my neighbor was really generous ….
  6. Other wedding party on Saturday, on the same day with my neighbor’s. Didn’t attend it because it’s farther from home and I was already tired to go far.

Second week;

  1. Friends reunion. Not so much … Didn’t manage to meet all friends.
  2. Bought something for future. Fruit trees actually … to be planted on my already specified lot.
  3. Another wedding party. I didn’t go because I was too tired to go …
  4. Visit to a far-away church at Kg. Nahaba, Kota Belud. Around four to five hours drive from my hometown. Eyed someone there … hehehe. No contact whatsoever, but I got the pictures anyway.
  5. Roaming around aimlessly …

Third week;

  1. Most of the time were spent on getting myself ready for the departure …
  2. A little party for my departure …
  3. Departed to Penang …

Still counting ….

Most probably I am not going to update my blog for the next three weeks (or more) unless I have access to internet there … Probably I will be busy doing something else – more outdoor activities, more family gathering, more fests and so on …
