Fast Blog

Posted in arab, Cafe, Jagong, pink, sungkai, Taurean on September 21, 2007 by Jablaii

Scheduled maintenance begins in 10h 14m <– ani wah kena bagi notice, so i better make a fast blog before the maintenance begins. Lama pulang lagi in 10hrs but knowing me, aku suka bertabiat membuat blog, udah di type tu, di save as draft tu, alum ku publish lagi selagi aku alum puas hati, who knows kan I might wanna add lagi or edit something. Udah atu ku save then ku biarkan and do other stuffs and in about 2-3hrs baru ku check lagi sekali and tambah lagi, macam ani wah.. after 45mins ku tambah lagi only this part yg ku highlight saja

I’m the kind of person yang payah kan buat decision, indecisive lah di katakan. Its not that i’m indecisive but it’s hard for me to choose bah, i want it to be good for me after making the right decision will make me satisfy. What if i didn’t choose the right one or the right food or the right decisions, it won’t make me satisfy and happy. If you guys have been hanging out or going out with me to a restaurants or cafes, you definitely will be pissed with me hehe, hanya orang-orangnya saja yang tahu tu. I tend to choose or decide the food in the menu for almost 30mins, banar tah. That is because aku mau my food yang ku pilih atu nyaman and memuaskan hati ku. Even minuman pun mesti payah ku pilih tu, last resort, diet coke or teh c ping tu jawapannya, atu saja yang ada fixed menu dalam my brain, kalau sal makanan alum ber-fixed tu lagi.. ada lah, ruti talor campur bawang. Atu ready fixed dah tu kalau ke restaurant mamak.

Oh yeah last weekend me and the Jagongs went out after the Tarawih prayer and it was my idea jua kan berjalan wah since lama udah nda berjalan malam-malam and sementara time puasa ani, aku bebas dari iblis, syaitan, jin dan hantu2 lain ehehehe.. anyhoootssss.. kami ke YMRM and aku ani kan beli kasut but nada my size, ada pulang my size but semua kasut atu narrow wah, inda wide.. tau lah kaki ku ani lebar, al maklum lah, kaki orang arab daah.. dissapointed ku eh, every year nda ada.. sampai ku suruh owner YMRM atu buatkan aku special order tapi datangnya lapas raya, inda jua pedah tu. Then memilih sinjang ku. Aku mencari sinjang yang matching sama kain cara melayu ku and you’d never believe warna apa nah? warna pihink @ PINK.. yesssssss i know.. bida kali ah laki2 makai pink.. i mean nda pulang bida but for me, aku migraine wah kalau meliat warna pink (nah migraine tah ku sudah bagi warna pink ani) atu ani kan makai warna PINK lagi.. tahan saja and they do know how i hate PINK so much so for the Jagong’s sake, paksa tah ku motong kain cara melayu warna PINK and since majority durang semua suka PINK, I suggested them during raya nanti sama-sama we all pakai warna PINK and i told them sudah since ku balik dari KL last June and early July. Tapi sadly ada some of the jagongs inda mau pakai warna pink. Ani kan ku sudah berkorban demi untuk memuaskan hati durang aku pakai warna PINK, boring eyh, inda sporting durang ani. Macam-macam excuses tia durang bagi. Lambat bagitau lah, rosak baju kurung ku yang warna pink lah, aku nada kain pink lah, bla bla this.. bla bla that.. yea watever lah.. sabar saja, malas ku mikirkan lagi warna PINK ani, tapi ku highlite jua ah warna PINK ani hahahaha.. aduh migraine eh

Then lapas dari YMRM kami kan melepak rah Taurean baru at D’Arch ah. Unfortunately ramai orang di sana, nada seats available and it was around 10:45pm kali if im not mistaken. Then we decided to go to Coffee Zone, full jua, nada seats. Ke Sugar & Spice, penuh jua.. ke mana cafe pun kami aga, all is full. Eeehh sejak bila cafe-cafe di Brunei ani pandai full and nada seats ah, heran jua kami tu.. ohhh its weekend, no wonder. Tapi selalunya during weekend nda jua as ramai as that nite jua and alum jua terima tu. Bagi sasak wah, rasanya kan buka cafe sendiri and melepak rah cafe sendiri, tapi Awang Metussin alum ada, mana kah ia. Last-last ke mana nah kami? ke Eusoff Cafe di Serusop at it was almost midnite. Boring jua tu.. kira kan mau cari tempat nice environment lah nie, tapi in the end, di cafe mamak jua hahaha..

Ayte atu tah saja dulu kali eh, kan tidur ku.. lalah ku.. jan masak untuk sungkai lagi and i will be alone sungkai di rumah jua karang nie.. my mom will be sungkai-ing at her friend’s house (tempat orang arab berkumpul), my sister ikut her, my bros and the wives sungkai di luar jua.. aku alone ni eh.. beli ice-cream blizzard DQ saja kali eh, atu tah yang ku idam-idamkan, si Shai inda jua mau lanja aku.. hahahaha..

sapa mau dangani aku sungkai di luar karang ah??

 

Jagong Nite Out

Posted in Cafe, cruising, Food, Jagong, Migraine on August 31, 2007 by Jablaii

Today is Friday and every Friday mesti sembahyang Jumaat. Today the weather is like really hot, i can feel the heat dalam my car airconditioner, even ku pasang full but still rasa panas. After Friday prayer I suddenly feel dizzy and berat rasa at the back of my head. Sakit banar rasanya so i know that i had migraine. I laid myself on the bed then tertidur tah ku, atu pun sekajap saja cos aku inda biasa tidur di waktu petang. When i woke up, i still had this migraine. I thought kalau di bawa tidur, hilang migraine ku ani but its not, malahan lebih sakit ada pulang. I was thinking cana ku kan jalan karang malam with the Jagongs. If aku inda join the reunion, definitely everyone mesti swore at me cos aku yang make this reunion. But my head is really sakit. Ku bawa mandi, still inda baik. I ate Panadol active fast, inda jua baiknya.

At 7:03pm I called gboi sal tadi ia call aku pi inda ku menjawab, I was outside buat kopi. So i asked him if he can pick me up later since he and Roseh on the way kan jalan tmpat our meeting point, so he said ok. 730pm durang datang sudah di bawah tunggu aku. Then we jalan lah at this new restaurant at Serusop, it is called “d Other Office Cafe & Bistro“. The place is nice and cozzy, its like a 4 star restaurant. But sadly inda berapa banyak choices of food in the menu, there’s like 4 main course saja which is Mee Siam, Mee Rebus, Soto Ayam and Nasi Ayam. The rests is just cakes, appetizers and scones. The price is reasonable lah for me cos every main course you order, you get a free teh tarik or ice tea but they are ran out of ice tea and replaced it with grenadine syrup with calamansi. So i ordered Mee Rebus and it cost me only B$4.50. At first the taste is tawar but I add a bit of lada rindu, salt and lime then baru tah ada ummpphhh.. good taste.

(Mee Rebus with its condiments, lime, green chilli pickles and green sambal)

Gboi ordered Nasi Ayam, which is lain cara durang masak Nasi ayam cos the chicken is deep fried, while Roseh ordered Mee Siam, looks nice and tasty. Then came si Qush. Pas atu Lina then Ahha. Lastly datang tia Leena Batek and Mila. Its great to meet them all again after lama inda berjumpa. Then my uncle ada di sana introduced me to the owner of the cafe, a Singaporean. He asked me how’s the food and i told them its nice and suggested him to add new menu especially on the main course. He said he noticed that most of his guests suggested him jua but he said since the cafe baru buka, he don’t wanna put banyak main course and he don’t wanna make the cafe like other typical restaurant in Brunei. Durang mau buat the food serves di sana as the authentic Singapore food. He will add new menu but not now, it will be a surprise, he said.

After bercerita-cerita di sana, we then went cruising. Ke mana nah? ke Pantai Serasa. Saja ke sana kan meliat orang kan beromen kah, apa kah. The view of the sea was really nice, i took some photo tapi inda terang, al-maklum lah apa jua camera ku atu, handphone hehe..

In this picture, you can see something weird behind him

Lapas cruising then sorang-sorang ngaleh then gboi send me back home. I still had migraine and yeah masa posting blog ani pun masih ada migraine.

Ayte its time for me to go then, happy reading and i really had fun going out with the Jagongs tonite, wish we can do it again every week, atu pun if you guys “have the right time”.. siapa kah selalu cakap catu ah? hehehe..

chowsss..

Demanding

Posted in Cafe, Coffee Bean, LilHub, Restaurant on June 21, 2007 by Jablaii

WEDNESDAY

I am so F tired. I just got back from my cuzen berjaga-jaga ceremony and as usual, i played table tennis but i didnt really play well tonite coz i strained my ankle last nite from playing table tennis.

Anyways my blog is not about what i do just now at my cuzen’s place. My blog is about me being demanding. Yes indeed, i just realised i am so demanding. What is it that i am so demanding about? its about anything especially on choosing a fizzy/soda drinks. I used to be a diet-aholic (not anymore) and everywhere I chill or hangout with my friends to a cafe’s or restaurants, I only asked for diet/light coke.

Not all restaurants and cafes serves /sell diet coke and that is really disappointing. I have no other options but to ordered either coke or teh c ping.Why not all restaurants and cafes in Brunei serves/sells light coke? If they don’t sell those drinks, they can always sell light pepsi or any dietary drinks like Yogurt. But not all yogurts are healthy and diet, they can be fatty and sweet too. The only minuman yang diet yang ada berjual or can be free at all restaurants and cafes is “SKYJUICE” but beri malu jua you tu makan dalam fancy restaurants but order Skyjuice. Some cafe’s let the customer bring their own drinks but must eat or order anything from them. But most restaurants/cafes don’t allow outsiders food & drinks. Boring jua tu if nada your favorite drinks berjual. If i can’t get what i want, I don’t wanna waste my time eating in your cafe/restaurant unhappily. Or perhaps, I can bring my own drinks and eat happily in your outlets.

So rite now, I am begging and demand for any cafe’s or restaurant’s owners to sell Diet/Light Coke, Pepsi Diet, Dr Pepper, mountain dew?? and Sunkist Light in your outlet. If inda tau cana usul that drinks, see the picture below:-

diet_coke.jpg drpepper.jpg sunkist.jpg mountain-dew-limonande.jpg

Hmm.. how come I dont see mountain dew berjual lagi di sini ah. Im not sure bout other place cos every supermarket i go, i don’t see mountain dew berjual lagi.

Dr pepper.. i like toh. I dont know how to explain the taste but the taste is sooooo kinky.. erkss i mean so nyaman lah. This is the only drink I always beli when I was in UK and in Japan. Mesti ku beli jua nie. You can find this drink berjual at SupaSave Mabohai and Beribi, if im not mistaken lah. I always beli di SupaSave Mabohai.

Sunkist Light.. soo soo.. greaat.. not like other soda orange drinks. This is different, great taste. Taste like Sunkist. Go buy and taste yourself. Ada tu berjual di kedai-kedai runcit.

So the above pictures are the kind of drinks that I’m expecting them berjual. If not, i will bring my own drinks saja. The place that i usually hangout is LilHub (durang ada jual diet coke ni) , Casbah London kebab (diet coke pun ada) , CA Mohammda (dpn Mall), Funbread, Coffee Bean, Coffee Zone, Mamih, Xcapade, Taurean cafe, TPH, de Fountain, Kadai mamak and many more. So watch out if i come to your premises with my bag cos aku standby bawa my own drinks. Sediakan Ais Saja hehehe..

Coffee Bean

Posted in Cafe, Coffee Bean, Eating out, Food, Restaurant on May 29, 2007 by Jablaii

Its been for ages ku inda ke CB. Aku ke CB pun cos si Roseh dragged me there.. eh no, we decided to meet up at CB. She wanted me to teach her how to do a banner. Setibanya ku di CB, Roseh tarus-tarus cakap to the waitress there “Apa senyum-senyum, he’s not my boyfriend”. Like what the hell, I was stunned, lama lagi tu berdiri bangang meliat the waitress and si Roseh. For your information, she is not my gf jua, we are just friend. Kena gossip wah us being couple, buleeh..

It was a nice hot sunny day. inda berapa ramai orang di sana. We were like bising di sana atu as if the cafe was ours. I ordered ice blended White Chocolate and as usual it took me half an hour to order just one beverage. Malas ku kan berdiri lama-lama dpn counter atu so i took the menu with me at my seat.

Macam-macam ragam terjadi di CB atu, my laptop dengan sendirinya main Surah Al-Fatihah, nyaring lagi tu. Panic lagi tu kan mendamiti volumenya, but fikir punya fikir, apa salahnya kan main ayat surah Al-fatihah. Tarus balik bah this English couple yang duduk sebelah kami, takut kali durang aku kan mengislamkan durang hahahaha..

Then keresahan tia parut ani lapar, rupanya aku alum lunch. Si Rose ani alum lunch tah jua. So we went to the food zone at Jaya Hypermart. Si Rose recommend the LAKSA, katanya nyaman. So i ordered the laksa udang at the EverFirst Restaurant Booth. Looks Yummy.

( Laksa Udang)

Presentation was ok. The Laksa was too oily. Udangnya sedikit and the soup was too fatty, obviously they are using coconut milk. Bit tawar and not spicy, just nice. Im giving a 5/10 saja. Not my kind of laksa after all.
