    Not Me: Let's go have "nasi lemak antarabangsa". It's the best nasi lemak in the world.
    Me: Go home. Your mama's calling you.

    Is it just me or does everyone in KL think this "nasi lemak antarabangsa" is the best nasi lemak in the world?

    Well then, let me be the first to say that it isn't. If anyone thinks it is, they should seriously consider expanding their food-eating places. Frankly, I don't see what the big deal is. It's not bad but it's certainly not the best or even in the top ten for me in KL. I suppose if you are into runny sambal, then that place would be the mothership for you. But one thing's for sure. It's as overrated as Kylie Minogue's ass.

    And don't even get me started on the decor.

    Me after 40 seconds on the stepper: I want to die.
    Gym trainer guy: It's OK. Have some water.
    Me: OK.
    Gym trainer guy: You know, you should drink something that will replenish your system. Something like Gatorade or 100 Plus.
    Me: I am not a fan of Gatorade. 100 Plus I like.
    Gym trainer guy: OK. Then you get a can of 100 Plus and open it while you work out. Let the gas out first. Otherwise it will upset your stomach when you work out.
    Me: 100 Plus at room temperature and without gas tastes like urine.
    Gym trainer guy: Then take something with glucose.
    Me: Like Coke without gas?
    Gym trainer guy: No. Take Ribena.

    Best thing I've heard about working out so far. Ribena!

    It is 6.15 am and I've been sitting in front of my PC for the past five hours playing with Google Earth. Next to video games, television, and exercise, Google Earth has to be the most fun way to waste your waking moments away. I suggest you give it a go.

    Apparently, this thing has been around for quite awhile. You download the Google Earth application. Install it. Fire it up and you get a view of the planet. With your mouse, you can then rotate, zoom in or out our lovely planet right down to the streets. These are satellite photos and are not in realtime.

    Hey, I can actually see my house from here.

    I've pretty much checked out the famous spots like the Statue of Liberty and the Forbidden City. Now I am looking for nude beaches and Osama bin Laden.

    By the way, China is fucking huge!

    I am not proud of this post because it is about food. I realise there are people starving all over the world and I should not be complaining about food...blah blah blah....I'm lucky to have food...blah blah blah...people starving in Africa blah blah blah.

    Having said that, I must tell you about Post's "Honey Nut Shredded Wheat" cereal. I switched to this brand of cereal from Kellogg's "Frosted Flakes" because apparently, the sugar frosting was killing me. So enters the shredded wheat.

    Let me tell ya. They might as well call it "Dried Bird Crap" because that is what it tastes like. This is purely conjecture now since I've never tasted dried bird crap but I can imagine this is what it would taste like. The honey didn't help either. This cereal, by far, has to be the driest, most revolting, blandest, most boring cereal ever created. The challenge here once you drown the little bastards in milk is that you have to finish it within 30 seconds. If you don't, then you will have the soggiest, most revolting, most boring cereal ever created.

    Forgive me God for this rant but I feel I have to warn my fellow man.

    Anyway, I now have a box of tasty Honey Nut cereal if anyone of you want it. Just come over. Call first. I might be in the shower.

    Last night, I earned my rite of passage and came closer to becoming a bona fide Malaysian.

    I bribed a policeman.

    Yes, it was my fault. I commited a traffic offence. I take full responsibility for my actions. What surprised me was how easy it was to bribe the guy.

    I thought I had to do this whole song and dance with him but he just went ahead and told me it's a RM200 fine if he gave me a ticket but it could be less. And before you know it, I was handing him RM50. It was that easy.

    So there you go. The Malaysian police at a discount!

    If you don't hear from me in 48 hours or if this blog goes off line, tell my parents that I love them.

    Malaysia Boleh!
