Ham Choy soup

Wow. It's been a while since I updated this blog. Just came back from Malaysia's highest sports complex last week for the annual track and field event. Good to be back home, and it's even sweeter that it's school holidays now. Time to take more photos!

Anyway, my wife bought a big, fresh red snapper from a friend of hers. Almost 4kgs which costs her RM90. I never had a fish this big in the kitchen. We thought of methods to cook the fish, before deciding on ham choy soup.

Not much of ingredients used for tonight's dinner. We just prepared some tomatoes, ham choys, parsley and ginger and boil it together with the fish. After dashes and dashes of salt, msg and sugar, we got the taste right.

Dinners is served!

Risma - Sports-themed photoshoot

This particular session was held last month, and the theme was sportswear. Lucky for us our talent Risma was quite athletic and didn't mind being out under the hot afternoon sun. My fellow photos and I however, came home being tanned and sunburned but it was all worth it.

We did the photoshoot at Likas Sports Complex. 

The gangs!

The Upside-Down house (rumah terbalik) of Tamparuli, Sabah

It has been in the news just recently, whereby the first upside-down house in Malaysia was built in Sabah. It was reported that the owner spent almost half a million for this.

My wife and I were on our way to Tamparuli when she suggested that we visit that place. Little did we expect that it was just beside the roadside if you're going to Mt. Kinabalu, just before the Shell station. There were a big number of people were already there when we arrived.

There's even an upside-down Perodua Kancil in the garage!

Ticket costs RM10 for Malaysian adults. You need to produce you IC though. Normal price is RM18 for adults and RM5 for kids.

Then you queue before getting into the house.

The reception counter.

There's a short briefing session about this place before entering the house.

Before you enter the door, there's one small problem though. You can't take a single photo inside or a fine of RM100 will be imposed. From what I saw, it was good. The washing machine, the aircon, tables and house furnitures were upside down but personally, I do think there's lack of home 'decors' to make is as homely as possible. 

The rear of the house.

There's a small souvenir shop located just after the house.

There's a cafeteria as well.

Serikin Market revisited

During New Year's eve, I brought my wife to visit Serikin as she has not been here before. The weather was very hot that day, but luckily, not many people came. I already expected a crowded place and having a hard time getting a place to park the car, but it was the opposite.

I did notice there were more stalls opened this time, but most were selling almost the same stuffs. You really need to visit each stalls to bargain the best price.


Found some antiques..

Very handy during a hot day.
