哈韩雪沙与咖啡 It's Bingsu Time @ Nunpat Cafe, #KKCity

听了一些人满意的评语, 我也亲自试试。

Heard the good respond on the Bingsu fever by Nunpat Cafe which opened since last year.


- Green Tea Bingsu -

期待着阿力士点的绿茶 Bingsu! 第一次看到我们的雪沙是有点失望。 汤圆的样子真的好失礼, 就如相片中。雪沙的味道还ok,雪糕是我们所推荐的!

It was a bit disappointed when I first see our bowl of Green Tea Bingsu. The glutinous balls were not nicely presented. I love the soft textured shaved ice, it melted within seconds. Green Tea ice cream is our favourite!


- Nunpat Cafe -

不止韩国雪沙在这里可以享用, 我们还可以点一杯香浓咖啡呢! :)

好了, 到此!

Not only we can have varieties of Bingsu, they do serve other snacks as well, from cakes to coffee! Who love coffee?!

广州,中国 Guang Zhou, China : 上下九广场与北京路 Shopping at 'Up Down' Guang Chang & Bei Jing Street!

中国 第十章 China Part 10 - 广州 Guang Zhou

幸亏那天的天气不错,我们的导游带我们到了广州著名的上下九广场走一走这里是购物天堂,所谓可以买到便宜与值得的东西, 也可以吃到各种小吃。

After our lunch, it's time for shopping! Our tour guide brought us to the well know Shang Xia Jiu Guang Chang for a short walk and catch up when it is time to go back to the hotel. :)

 

- 上下九广场 Shang Xia Jiu Guang Chang -


- 上下九广场 Shang Xia Jiu Guang Chang -

人山人海的上下九街。 在中国, 我们的确要小心乞丐和扒手, 一不小心宝贵物品就不见了。 我好心的爸爸给了一位老乞丐一点钱, 也因此后来又几个乞丐跟随着我们! 我们也。。。 快跑咯!

In China, there's thousand of people every where. In fact, we need to careful of people around, the beggars and pick pockets especially. Being a nice person, my dad gave some money to an old beggar, due to this, the beggar informed his friends and they followed us. The last thing to do will be RUN!!!


- 上下九广场 Shang Xia Jiu Guang Chang -

这是我们的下午茶小吃, 脆辣猪猪球蛮好吃的! 看着窗外的风景, 可是另一番风味。

We went to Mc Donald for afternoon tea since there's no other foods that caught our eyes and THAT'S FREAKING CHINA! WE SHOULD BE WORRYING! Yet fast food better when we travel far from home! Haha. =D


- 上下九广场 Shang Xia Jiu Guang Chang -


- 上下九广场 Shang Xia Jiu Guang Chang - 

这是我的第一杯贡茶, 沙巴是找不到的。 味道也只有奶茶。

The first cup of Gong Cha. Not in Malaysia, but I had it in China. :)


- 上下九广场 Shang Xia Jiu Guang Chang -

拍了最后一张照也是时候回酒店了。 如果有下次, 我不会想回到上下九广场逛逛, 也许没什么可以吸引我吧。 但如果要找便宜物品, 这里必定一个不错的购物天堂。

The last shot before heading back to hotel. 

Overall, Shang Xia Jiu Guang Chang doesn't make me wanted to visit for the second time, maybe it's because the there's not many things that I can buy from there.

第二天,我们来到了北京路。 好漂亮的街,店面也不错。 很多连锁店, 专卖店在这里。 我喜欢!

On the next day, we went to Bei Jing Street. I love this place very much! Lots of things to see and to shop! Pretty street in fact. :)

在北京路我们可以看见许多熟悉的连锁品牌, 也可以到特别的咖啡屋看书与品赏咖啡。

Good stuffs to be search for in Bei Jing Street. This is where I bought some of my gifts and a sweater for myself! The local China sports brand - 361 Celsius.


- 北京路 Bei Jing Street -

中国政府在北京路也设计了一些地底历史经历, 好让我们了解中国历史古迹。

It was really good that the government designed the street with transparent glasses which we can see and learn a bit of China history on the ground.

好啦! 我就到此为止。 北京路, 我好想你哦!

That's all for today! Somehow I do miss Beijing Street! So many things to buy!

致敬 #沙巴地震 Tribute to the Fallen Ones #Sabahquake (05.06.2015)

一篇一篇的文章、一张一张的照片已布满了面子书。将近每一则新闻也报导了我州, 沙巴近来发生的地震事件。一切真叫人心酸。

话不说多了。。。

看看相片吧。

It's been a heart breaking news since the first tremors/ earth quake strikes our beloved Sabah. Words can't describe the feelings we had for our dearest Sabah and Sabah Quake victims.

Without saying much, let the photos speak.


就在亚庇市中心的涂鸦广场,人们都献上了花与蜡烛, 致敬那些在地震中赔了性命的人。

Tribute to the late victims at Heritage Building (Graffiti Building), KK City on 08.06.2015.




*Credit to Charlotte*

说真的, 亚庇摇晃蛮厉害的。 最恐怖是兰脑地带以及一些小地方, 陆地,屋子及一些楼城已被破坏了。

Frankly speaking, KK is fine although the shaking was magnitude 6.0, we could feel the shaking and even see the building and our surrounding was shaking the other day. There's some scary sound coming when I was having my shower that morning 7.15am. Quickly jump out the washroom to make sure I'm safe and okay. You can't imagine the fear. :(

The most pity area is at the mountain, Ranau was horribly shaken and some of the buildings need to be renovated as at current updates.


这是几年前所拍的照片。 早早起床只为了与它近距离的接触,真的很开心的。 �� 那是我们雄伟、神圣的神山,京那巴鲁山。

That's the perfect photo I could find in my folder. The perfect view of Mount Kinabalu.

地震是无法预测的,我相信登山向导们与现场的每一位也付出了所有能力协助与急救受难者。 他们的勇敢也令我们深深感触, 谢谢你们。

Never expect this will happen to Sabah. I believe that the rescuer, the mountain guides and the authority have played their part well to save the victims. Thank you.

以下是一些我们可以捐款以及联络团体,如果可以的话也请您赞助您的心意帮助地震受难者。

Here are some of the reliable associations that we can contribute to. Kindly do contact or donate to them if you feeling so. :)  






希望这篇文章可以帮助到地震受难者。在此,谢谢你们所捐款的心意。 :)

Hopefully this sharing could help a little. Sincerely, I would like to thanks to those who contribute to the #Sabahquake victims.

家乡味之 云集酒楼,担波罗里 The Classic Taste by Wun Chiap Restaurant @ Tamparuli, Sabah

大约45分钟车程, 来至亚庇的我们终于到达了担波罗里(Tamparuli)老镇。 

那首民间歌谣在脑海里深深想起,也提醒了我们这是沙巴州的必经之地之一。

When they mentioned Tamparuli, it reminds me of the song "Jambatan Tamparuli". 

That "Pak Pak Kang Ku Do. SuMuSui Do Jambatan.

Jambatan Do Tamparuli. Ba Kasut Tinggi O Ku." :)

After 45 minutes of on the road journey, we arrived at Tamparuli again! And its' noodle time again!


- 春卷肉圆汤 Spring Rolls and Meatball Soup - 

家乡味的春卷肉圆汤。 如果没错的话,这是本土的客家人的特色,起源于客家人。

Spring rolls and meatball soup. A hot bowl of soup along with their handmade fried egg noodles, do make a good combination.


- 叉烧煎蛋 与 炒面 Fried Eggs with Roasted Meat and Fried Egg Noodles -

简单的早餐, 这也是我家假日的早餐。 爸爸特地驾车带着我们去凑热闹, 吃碟炒面! 哈哈!它就是鼎鼎有名的 Tamparuli 炒面!

Breakfast that we had during public holidays most of the time, even the owner know my dad. My dad love to go bring us to Tamparuli, just for the plate of fried egg noodle. And that's the specialty of Wun Chiap Restaurant.


- 客家特色 与 Tamparuli 炒面 The Yong Taufu, Yong Egg and Tamparuli Fried Noodle -


酿豆腐 与 酿鸡蛋卷。这都是客家的特色, 豆腐平日都可以吃到,但是鸡蛋卷只有假日或星期天才会卖。卖完就没啦!他们的年轻一辈的家人只有假日才可以回乡帮忙, 所以一天售卖的鸡蛋卷非常有限!

The "Yong" dishes. Originated from the Hakkas. Just to let you know, the egg rolls covering the minced meat only serves on public holidays and weekends. It is because the family members who studies/ works in KK are back to Tamparuli to lend a hand. :)   


- 云集特色 The Special Dishes by Wun Chiap -

还记得我与NTV7 的拍摄取景那天, 这都是老板, 老板娘好心为我们准备的料理, 但是部分没在本店菜单上! 有福咯~ 感恩!原本提防我们的老板们渐渐对我们也好了起来,第一次本店上节目还有尤其是是当他们知道了#张顺源(本国马来西亚明星)到访/ 主持#爱食客节目! 保持低调, 别说有明星到此。 哈哈! 非常搞笑的!

I still remember the day during the video shoot for "Foodie Blogger"(NTV7), part of the dishes served by the owner and not in the menu though. :) In fact, the owners were not that friendly but in the end, especially when there's #Ernest Chong, the Malaysian artist, the whole atmosphere become friendlier.


- 我本人,老板与家人 还有 张顺源 A group photo of Us -

还是小妹妹最厉害! 告诉妈妈有明星! 很高兴NTV7 #爱食客 可以享受到当地美食, 尤其是这个家乡味的Tamparuli 炒面。

他们问我为何介绍这间店, 我只回答最特别的鸡蛋手打面, 酿鸡蛋卷,还有这间老店的存在。 那座桥作为 Tamparuli 地标。最重要的是从小都来这间吃那碟炒面的味道!一路上的风景的确迷人,也只有幸运的人才可以看到那个所谓雄伟的神山呢!!最终该说的是,全世界的每一个老镇都值得分享与被了解。

Before we left for our next video shoot, we took a group photo with the owner and his family members. I am glad that #Foodie Blogger crews could have a taste of one of our well known local delicacies.

For our information, this generation of Wun Chiap Restaurant should be the last generation to run the business. Therefore, visiting to the restaurant should be one of our to do list before the end.


- 两位主持人 The Co-Host and Host of #Foodie Blogger -

一张与#张顺源的合照做为纪念。人生的第一次上节目真的还蛮不错的经验, 看着NTV7 #爱食客 的制作团体的热情以及专业对于他们的制作行程, 真的大开眼界。

A photo with #Ernest Chong at Wun Chiap Restaurant as remembrance. Experiencing to be the co-host for the first time in my life, especially on screen really opens my eye and getting to make new friends from another field personally.

Day Trip to Tagal Tinopikon Park, Kg. Notoruss, Penampang, #Sabah

Moyoq River is one of the most beautiful rivers in Sabah. Despite the warm weather, it felt rather relaxing and soothing taking a break as the trees shade you from the sun and rhythm of the nature further compliments the experience. - See more at: http://www.sabahtourism.com/destination/tagal-tinopikon-park#sthash.GkqXM4mB.dpuf

Was being invited to a local village of Sabah to experience the lifestyle of the villages along the one of the most beautiful river in Sabah - Moyog River.


- Hanging Bridge of Tinopikon Park -

45 minutes drive from the city and entering the village/ park via hanging bridge, finally we make it. No pollution, just breezy and fresh air. 

We were welcomed with local musical instruments played by the native villagers. :) Did I tell you that there are twins in every generation of the villagers, and they even danced for us to see!

Here are some of the activities that we can do if we happened to be there.


- Local Outdoors Games -

Running here and there. Oh boy... that's something I never seen before expect for the old school darts.


- Hiking - 

It's time to go hiking and time to learn. The environment, the surrounding, the plants etc.


- The Native House -

If I'm not mistaken, the house is one of the oldest at Kg. Notoruss. Refurnished and more than 50 years perhaps.


- Wild Fruits -  

It was my first to try "wild mangosteen". Taste like mangosteen for real and it is small in size.


- Lots of Fruits -

The villagers earn their living by selling fruits daily. There's plenty of local fruits for us to buy with very reasonable price too!


- Rubber Tree -

We have the chance to learn rubber tapping.

It was not easy to wake up at 4am in the morning to tap the rubber tree and collect the latex after.


- Nepenthes Plant -

Wild nepenthes was found along the way in the jungle. 

It is also a good exercise and breathing the fresh air while hiking.


- Water Fountain - 

Deep inside the jungle and finally we reach the clear water, unpolluted fountain. 

Certainly clear water and be careful of that slippery rocks!

It is time to return to the riverside. :)


- Fish feeding -

Huge fishes!! Ticklish and fun feed feeding along the riverside. :) I do miss that, like a lot!

About TAGAL, it is a KadazanDusun language that means "prohibition". It is a eco-system that managed by the park community to prohibits people like me and you to catch those fishes at Moyog River. There's only one duration that we are allowed to catch fishes.


- Entertainment Time -

The local musical instruments to entertain guests like us to the village.


- Local Delicacies -

Tuhau and small fishes. The foods served were prepared by the locals there, don't think of very glorious dining but we should try their local taste. :) I had a lot of their porridge and chicken soup! Yummy!

- The Family Bound -

Nothing can define a family. :) Truly, I love this random shot along the river of Tinopikon Park. 

Overall, Tagal Tinopikon Park will be one of the park that I will introduce to friends and family whoever wish to experience bits of the local life of native Sabahan for a day. :)

That Classic Buns by 瓊萬興茶室 Keng Wan Hing Coffee Shop @ Gaya Street, #KKCity

It was easy to find classic buns now a day, especially when we drop by in downtown city centre.

What I love about this Kopitiam (Coffee Shop)? The Polo Bun with Pineapple filling sure wins my heart! Crunchy butter on the outside, soft bread and pineapple jam in the inside.

Not only that Polo Bun, which I think it was only found at Keng Wan Hing in KK, they also have all the classic buns steam and baked ones.


- 瓊萬興茶室 Keng Wan Hing Coffee Shop -

On the recent visit to this old coffee shop, I have noticed that they have upgraded bits of they interior. They have added the designed frame with cute cartooned owners and the workers. Look the same!


- The classic buns -

With the filling of shaved coconuts, pineapples, butter for bread. Pork meat, Red Beans Paste and 梅菜 (Mei Cai) for the steamed ones. There's other snack too, egg tarts and "Wife" Cookies. In short, many love their buns and people just come and go, sit in to dine too! Even Ang Mo was attracted to this local delights. :)


- Polo Buns -

Have the chance to see how they make their Polo Buns.


- The Break Time -

In KK, we have so many tea session. Just to let you know, they do serve delicious sweet soup too. Read beans, Sweet Potatoes Soup. Tried them for the first time and it melted when we drink them. For a non beans lover like me, the red beans soup surprised me a lot.


- Polo Bun in action -


- As the Co-Host of Foodie Blogger 3 爱食客 《三》 Sabah episode by NTV7 -

Just for remembrance. :) Together with the host for Foodie Blogger for Sabah episode which should be on screen in September 2015.

Keng Wan Hing, operated by the Hainanese, started since 1984, that's what I love about classic. I love the people and I love this old school Gaya Street. Hints of classic in the city.
