Paldo Bibim-myun – Korean Cold and Spicy Instant Noodle Review

It was Saturday.

And i was browsing QOO10, looking for cheap deals and i came across this awesome Korean ramyun deals. Without hesitation, I quickly bought 2 e-tickets for the ramyun. I choose 1 Japaghetti ( Korean instant black bean sauce noodles ) and 1 Bibim-myun ( Korean instant spicy cold noodles ). Rush to the Kim’s mart in Sri Hartamas and grab the noodles. Kim’s mart is selling all kind of authentic Korean products, kimchi, chili paste, korean rice, and more than 15 kinds of Korean instant noodles! I got excited and bought more ramyun – Shin Ramyun, Namja Ramyun, KoKo Chicken Ramyun, Spicy Udon Ramyun and few cup noodles.

Once I went home, gently putting the ramyun into my maggie shelf and for the first time I saw the expiry date of the ramyun. Graaa, almost all the ramyun will be expired before May 2014.

It’s ok, I will eat them all before the expiry date. So, I tried the suspicious looking Paldo bibimyun first. There is an apple on the packaging, so i guess there is apple sauce mixture in the cold and spicy sauce.

Mix the sauce with noodles and eat it!

Bibimyun is very appetizing because of the hot and sweet sauce. Unlike Shin ramyun noodles, bibimyun noodles is different, is lighter and springy. There is a bit vinegar taste and some dried octopus flakes?. I can’t taste the apple sauce though. It’s refreshing and nice to eat on hot days. Not so awesome but still a good ramyun.

Not my favourite tho

How to deal with unwanted calls.

How to deal with unwanted calls, like insurances calls, or other annoying calls that you wish to stop or say no to that person but you don’t have the heart to do so?

This is just an irrelevant picture

This is just an irrelevant picture

Insurance calls is my ultimate problems now, this is my way to ditch the annoying insurance calls. Always remember insurance agent is just doing their jobs, is their job to be aggressive so please don’t be mean to them. Just say not interested or do not want. But sometimes, some agents really gone too far, they will never stop even though you’ve rejected them nicely. Even though you told her that you had insurance covers already but they still persuade you to get a second insurance, those are real annoying. Instead of just ending the phone call, I will let her do the talking and put the phone next to radio. If he/she is Malay or Indian, I will turn on Chinese radio for him/her to enjoy some music or if he/she is Chinese, I will switch to Indian radio for him/her to feel the Bollywood. (ps: I did reject them politely before they do the long talking but they still never give up)

You’re welcome to let me know your way to ditch unwanted calls but if is rudely say no or just end the calls half way, you can keep it to yourself.

Sekian, KTHXB.

Authentic Szechuan Cuisine in Kepong

Fuuuu, i like spicy food but recently i got bored from Thai cuisine so i went to try Szechuan cuisine. Wei Dao Jiang Hu is located in Taman Usahawan, somewhere near Kepong Aeon Big, same row with Yokotaya and QQ bbq and steamboat restaurant. The restaurant is runs by Szechuan people and the food is really good.

Brace yourself, the pictures below might make your mouth water. /or not, because of the poor quality.

Steamed Chicken in Szechuan Chili Oil – Rm15

Need not to worry, if you are not eating the chili, the spiciness is actually quite mild (in between of Nandos Chili sauce mild – hot level) , but beware of the Szechuan pepper numbing your tongue. My favorite dishes is the cold dish – Steamed Chicken in Szechuan Chili Oil! The chicken is soft, smooth, velvety texture and spicy (mild).

All in all, the food here is great, not pricey, air conditional place, waitress are pretty and easy to find parking. Give it a try if you like Szechuan food.

Zalora Malaysia Review

At first, i was skeptical about this online fashion website. But i can’t stop browsing the beautiful dresses on the website, so i give it a try when Zalora offers 20% off for CNY sales. I bought 2 dresses from Ezra, one of the exclusive brands in Zalora. I am extremely satisfied of the dresses, the quality is above my expectation and the size is fit! These are my beautiful dresses which i bought from Zalora with 20% off!

There are only at the price of Rm75-Rm80, i will not buy any dresses more than Rm90 if i never try out the dresses. So with the price of Rm75-Rm80 and 20% discount, 1 dress equals to Rm60-Rm64. The quality is totally worth for the price! I choose to use shipping and if the order is more than Rm75, i can get free shipping! I tried COD once before, and the service is good, the talkaful guy came to my office and i pay him the amount and get the parcel, that’s it. Fast and efficient!

I’ve returned 1 colorblock pants before, but it’s a bit troublesome, i have to buy yellow paper to wrap the pants because Zalora forgot to send me the parcel wrapper. Send the parcel to poslaju and wait for few days to get back store credits. Of course, once you gave out money, it’s hard to get it back, Zalora will only give you back store credits so you will need to use it on them.

Of course, not every of my shopping experiences in Zalora is perfect. Not all the products i purchased is good quality. But i can always return it back to Zalora and choose another items. Which is why i like to shopping in Zalora, even when you go out to shopping, there are hardly a chance to get to exchange the products after purchased.
I think Zalora Malaysia is a good online shopping website, and always offers discount. Here is my little tips for you, add your wishlist item in the cart and leave it for few days, trust me, Zalora might send you some discount codes.

Or you can just use this code to get 15% off from your order.

ZBAPN2M

no expiry dates, you can use it anytime but only for your first order.

I admit, i get benefit if you use my discount code because I’ve became Zalora brand ambassador. Please la, you tolong me, i tolong you. Please use the code.

So, what can you do if you trapped in traffic jam but you need to pee or poop?

Based on the title, sometime if the traffic is so bad that you might be trapped for few hours but what to do if you need to poop and pee so badly?

Pee
There is nothing you can do if you cannot find a place to stop the car and go pee inside some buildings. Unless you want to peep inside a botol or plastic bag or just let it go inside the car and find car wash later. You can always tell the car washer that your pet pees inside your car. You can also practise zen or chanting to distract yourself from the urge to pee. Let the pee inside you to be absorbed by the skin and let them evaporate through your skin.

Poop
I never encounter the situation before. But this is a post written by my friend. You can refer on it.

So I’m leaving my buddies house… and I get the feeling like I have to poo. I figure ‘fvck it, I can make it back home (it’s about 25 miles, straight highway shot… takes me about 20 min … normally ) I think one last time (before I get on the highway) that I should just pull over to the gas station and let it rip… I decide that avoiding the atomic bathrooms was in my best interest… I hop on the highway, and traffic is light to moderate… I get about 2 exits down, and as I pass the third exit… everything stops…… traffic is just idle. For about 5 min. we don’t move at all.. my stomach starts grumbling… uh oh, I think… I am stuck, just past an exit, and there is a few miles before the next one.. I think I’ll just hold it out.
Well, the traffic starts moving slow.. and I mean slow. I.e., I didn’t even press the gas.. just let my foot off the clutch so it was moving like ~ 2mph… We get stuck again… I’m think my ass is about to blow worse than Mt. St. Helen! I am literally shaking/sweating… I have no idea what I’m going to do…
Well, it gets beyond control.. I either make a plan, or I duece my pants.. there is no other option. Keep in mind I’m in a volvo s70 (not my bimmer thank G-d)… it’s stopped traffic and there is no window tint.. plus, it’s the middle of the day. I take off my shirt, drop my shorts and underwear. I lay down my shirt on the seat, lean forward so that my head is basically resting on the windshield, and I struggle… I push and push and nothing… It’s just so big that it’s jammed up in my gut, man that thing ain’t moving! I am still sweating, but now I’m freakin’ naked (except for my shoes and socks)… I cannot even bare to look next to me to see if these people are watching me struggle thinking ” what in the mother fcking hell is he doing??” I squeeze and squeeze and finally the turtle head pops out… I push like I’m giving birth to a freakin’ full grown elephant , and finally I am able to deploy my lincoln log… I lay the biggest brown pipe ever right in my shirt. It was all solid (thank god) about a 2 foot hot snake all coiled up and stairing back at me … I use my boxers to whipe, and ball it all up together… I set the clothed poo wad in the passenger seat, pull my shorts back on, and just sit there in utter relief… still staring straight ahead out of fear of seeing a school bus full of traumatized shool-children or something next to me, or some guy taking pics or something… I finally switch lanes over to the far right, roll down the window, and fling out my poo-wad as far as I can. That thing was heavy as hell! I finally get home (approx. 1 hr later)… and proceed to sanitize the car… I never cleaned a seat better than I did that day… I also took a long shower and tried to forget what I had just done…

Oh well… What can you do?

So, tint your window, prepare some bottles or plastic bags or diapers in your car just in case.

If you accidentally peed or pooped inside your car, blame the dog! Bring your car to car wash and tell them your pets did it. Wait them clean your car like a boss.

What to do when you stuck in Traffic Jam

Traffic Jam is just like constipation, you want to let go your gear but there is no way to let it go. Traffic jam is the problem we get to face it every working days, stuck for 10 minutes consider you get lucky for the day. I was once get caught in traffic jam for 2.3 hours, I can’t felt my legs when I reached home. (Me using manual car, cool, yea, I know)

So what you do when you get stuck in traffic jam? I have seen many people messaging, reading newspaper, singing along with the radio, cursing, playing phone, watching videos from mobile phone, self checkout from the mirror, smoking, blah and blah. Boring, boring, boring! Why can’t you do something fun when you get stuck in traffic jam!

Playing mobile phone games or apps is dangerous even if your vehicle is stopped because of traffic jam. You will lose your focus on road/ traffic condition. Reading newspaper or website will slow down your reflexes. So, what to do when you get caught in traffic?

1- Play mind games
You can train your brain with some mind games. Use a stopwatch, count 1.2.3 in your mind, the game is to sync the numbers in your mind with a stopwatch. This game can calm your mind and make yourself become a human countdown timer! If your microwave’s timer spoiled, but you still can cook your meal perfectly!

2- Train your memory
With mobile phone and all sort of digital devices to help you record everything, I guess your brain is aging and memory is fading. Admit it, you can’t even memorize more than 5 contact numbers. Well, you can start training your memory power when you stuck in traffic jam, find 5 cars that you like on the road, memorize their car plate number and check if you can write down those numbers when you crawl back to your home/destination.

3- Study vocabulary
Same like method 2, but you can choose to memorize new vocabulary from the language you want to master. Get some vocabulary flash card and enhance your vocab, in the same time you can boost your confidence in communications. You can show off to your friends too. Try to get some Shakespeare’s ultimate elegant, extremely bewildering jabs and affronts sentences. You can use that on your enemy and make them looks like half-baked.

4- Check the surroundings or self check out
Open your eyes wide and check out what the other driver or passengers doing when they get stuck. Maybe you will find some hot couples kissing, the process of make up, people eating nasi lemak using 1 hand.. blah and blah. Who knows, you might really get lucky, some pretty girl get bored and start conversation with you through hand gesture from their car. You can also self check out with the built-in mirror. Check if is time to trim nose hair, check if you need a facial or how to shape your mustache handsomely. blah and blah.

5- Call someone to chat
Call toll free numbers and chat with random operators. Of course, i am not asking you call to hospital, police or emergency force la. but you can call to banks, restarants, or even some society clubs. Remember, Bruce Willis gets his gf from this way too in RED2. Remember to use your handsfree when you make a call. I am not responsible if you get caught.

The end, kthxb.

PS: Here is a free gift from me, use this to scold your enemy wisely.
