Nihon Kai Restaurant

Just about 1 minute walk from my apartment lies a Japanese restaurant by the name of Nihon Kai. The food is fresh, the staff friendly and the service excellent but more importantly in these trying times, the price is reasonable.

Be sure to reserve your tables especially during the weekends as the place can be packed with customers. If you prefer, they have 4 private rooms too.

Address and contact details:
4-2, Jalan Telok Gadong,
Off Jalan Klang Lama Batu 3 1/2
58100 KL

Contact: 03-79823668

If you are planning to go, call me lah. I want to makan also.

Aaron's BD

Last night saw us all getting together for Aaron's birthday. It was supposed to be a surprise but then someone inadvertently let the cat out of the bag.

A few of us just had our open mats and was therefore HUNGRY and thankfully the spread was excellent..middle eastern food, thanks again to Mkhtar for organising it.

Good food and good friends sharing a meal together. Can't ask for more!

Ini Macam Pun Boleh...Ah Moi!

Well today didn't start off well at all. Woke up early and I thought I'd take the family out for breakfast. And while I was driving along the Old Klang Road, out came this car from the side slip road right onto the main road and rammed straight into the side of the car exactly at the front passenger's door.

Thankfully nobody was hurt including the Ah Moi in the other car. From the pictures you can see that my car has been dented, nothing to worry about except for the internal power window mechanism. The Ah Moi's front bumper is...well ..behind the front wheel but ultimately I think the cost of repairing her car will be way less than mine.

Bugger, what a way to start off the week

BJJ Camp. The countdown

2 more days to go and I'll be off to Pangkor for my first BJJ seminar/camp. I'm actually looking forward to this camp as I am kinda burnt out at work, pushing myself hard at the office for the past 4 weeks including weekends. Well the good news is that the work backlog has been serioulsy reduced. The bad news is that I can't stand the sight of another legal brief.

So this weekend will be all about BJJ, just thinking about BJJ, practising BJJ and rolling with the guys including with the 2 gentlemen above : Marcos Escobar & Chico Mendes of Check Mat BJJ. Man I can't bloody wait. I hope my body can take the pounding.

It's a last minute thing but I hope I can secure an extra room at Pangkor Island Resort so that the kids and the missus can tag along and join in the fun. Nothing beats having the family along


Well, it has finally happened. My iMac's HD kaputted on 6 November and I am officially suffering from net withdrawal symptoms. Thank gourd for the MacBook then. Life goes on but I've had to put on hold on all the downloads.

The good news is that it is still under warranty. The bad news is that Machines (the mac store @ Gardens) is taking so damn long to get it fixed. Like any typical Malaysian company : sales banyak cepat, after-sales banyak lambat. But then, this post is not a Machines bashing post. I'll leave that to next time

This is a post of me whining about my iMac
