Visit to Kuala Sepetang

Photography, Travel

Last weekend I did a trip to Kuala Sepetang because I thought I wanted to eat cockle. The last trip I did to Kuala Sepetang was couple of weeks ago in which I went for motorcycle trip up north to Penang. A friend of mine introduce me to this place called Restoran Tepi Sungai (Restaurant By The River).

The restaurant it self is on a platform above the river mouth, along the mangrove coast of Kuala Sepetang or better known as Port Weld. It was a short trip and I did not do any food photography. It was mainly a food trip to eat dinner. I did however took a few pictures when I was walking out of the restaurant. One of these days I should make a trip there and go for some street shooting. It does look like a nice place to shoot.

Here are some photos that I took…

The other stuffs thats famous there are charcoal factory and prawn mee. Which I’ve never been to both!

Revisit: Batu Arang

Photography

It has been quite a few weeks since I wrote anything on my blog. I have been occupied with work and drawing. And now I guess I need to tell myself to write more so I am motivated to take pictures and also draw more. Whenever I write anything on my blog, I do feel inspired to think about different things in life. And in this case, I do feel like going out there to shoot.

Its a weekend again, and I have decided that I am not going to ride out today as I wanted to spend sometime with family and friends as next weekend I am going for a weekend adventure to Penang with another group of friends.

The other thing, this weekend I managed to activate my Lightroom CC – which is a cloud enabled Lightroom that enable me to access my Lightroom catalog from anywhere and everywhere. Which effectively allow me to edit my photos whether on my laptop or my phone. It doesn’t really matter. Which is good. I need to shoot more and make a good use of my camera.

The photo attached in the featured is a photo that I took with my Leica M9 – back in the days when I was using a rangefinder. It shows an aunty preparing some wanton noodle or something. I didn’t eat that as I don’t eat pork. I only go there for coffee. My friends definitely had a good time eating the noodle there. The place shot is in Batu Arang. I have gone there so many times to shoot as well as to fly drone.

I guess that’s it from me today 🙂

Restaurant Review

Fun Posts

Last Sunday I tried out a new restaurant in Taman Tun Dr Ismail. It’s called PaperFish. The main dish here is Poke bowl. They do portray themselves as a healthy food joint. Joining the new sets of hipsters cafe along the road – Grumpy Cyclist, Goodness Greens and Wood/Steel.

From wiki – Poke /poʊˈkeɪ/ is a raw fish salad served as an appetizer in Hawaiian cuisine, and sometimes as an entree. Poke is the Hawaiian verb for “section” or “to slice or cut”.[1] Traditional forms are aku (an oily tuna) and he’e (octopus). Increasingly popular ahi poke is generally made with yellowfin tuna. Adaptations may feature raw salmon or various shellfish as a main ingredient served raw with the common “poke” seasonings.


Umami Shoyu Salmon. Classic poke bowl. Cherry tomatoes, edamame, Japanese cucumber and onions. Option for white rice, brown rice, quinoa or all greens! I took quinoa and added a sous vide eggs to get that protein overload. Needed more protein as I did quite a long weight workout earlier that morning.

The price RM16.90 with 1.90 for the additional quinoa and 2.50 for the egg. Pretty hefty but I must say I did enjoy the food.

Glad to see more and more of this local establishments coming out as alternatives to the mainstream food.

Japan Trip 2017: Kanazawa Sushi Dinner at Sushi Maimon

Food, Travel

I am skipping couple of days because I didn’t have the inspiration to look around for photos to post on the blog. Hehe.

Anyway – this post is for the Day 3 in which was a Sunday and we just arrived to Kanazawa from Osaka. After checked in to the hotel, we scour through TripAdvisor in search for the some food. Obviously Sushi Maimon came up top – but I wasn’t very sure if it will be any better from Endo Sushi.

To be honest – the sushi was decent to any Malaysian standards, but putting next to Endo – this taste like crap. And for the price that we paid – it’s really expensive!

Here are some of the pictures from the makan session.

Can’t have enough of Japan

Fun Posts

Back when I was having a holiday in Japan – my favorite chill out place for quick food would be 7-11. Over there – they would have all sorts of good, from your instant noodle to your full blown rice. If something simple, there’s a rack full of onigiri!

I was hungry when I reached Pusat Bandar Damansara MRT station just now and wanted to tapau some food from 7-11 here. Obviously it’s nothing compared to Japan, but a small bun not going to kill me or anything. Just so that I can not be hungry for couple of hours. 

You know what? I saw a pack of Onigiri. Yes it is expensive which RM4 – but it doesn’t stop me from buying. Well generally Onigiri is good for a quick small pack. 

By the way – one thing that I am pretty annoyed with the 7-11 in Pusat Bandar is that it is so bloody small. Almost impossible for me to fit into it, but yet I did. I need to make sure I remove my back pack though. 🤡
