Law & Order: SVU

Created by: Dick Wolf
Stars : Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni 

I really enjoy watching this series. It's sort of my new profound love, other than CSI....hahaha...

Basically the series delves into the dark side of the New York underworld as the detectives of a new elite force, the Special Victims Unit, investigate and prosecute various sexually oriented crimes, while trying to balance the effects of the investigation on their own lives.

Sometimes, it makes we wonder when are we gonna be that good, another question is if ever we are gonna be that good or if such unit THAT Good exist in any part of the world??? Any body dare to answer that? 

Eventually, all the series got me caught and hooked on the screen, with my mind trying to figure out and racing to get the outcome first before the end of the show :)

That's pretty good and accelerating ... just plain fun and satisfying

 And these two persons are the main characters in the series, Elliot Stabler and Olivia Benson!! Just love the good natural acting that really strikes out their roles.

The series are really a hit that it were even aired in Russia!! Good to know that...

Just love watching them and hope that you too.

It's just me in my normal days

Not so good a fortune...mendapat kecederaan parah di ibu jari kaki!!! Like hell, sakit x hengat dihempap pintu almari sliding...!!!

So, my world just went black the last few days, x leh nak g memana, susah nak jalan dgn ibu jari kaki yg berdenyut2...  :'(

Eventually, the pain subdue and at last, last Saturday I managed to go to Bentong with some help from my brother, pak supir x bergaji yg kuat melawan...huhuhu

Now only I realised how I missed the village and its environment. The smell of village air is just....heaven!!! Lama betul rasernya x pergi Bentong, it should be a couples of loooonnnggggg years ago...sampai dah lupa how was it previously. Even the kids were ecstatic in going to Bentong. Bukan lama pun, sehari dua aje, but a very meaningful trip to all of us.

We went to a local night market or pasar malam as we used to call it, in Mempaga 3, about a kilometre away from Perumahan Tras, were my uncle's house is situated. It's been ages since I last went to a pasar malam!!! I didn't even get to enjoy the one in Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman every Saturdays!!! Bummer...

I really missed the crowd in the pasar malam and the smell of local dishes being sold there (sorry I didn't get to take pictures of the pasar malam at Mempaga 3, didn't bring my camera) but I managed to snapped these pictures instead from my handphone....recognise what is it?

Oh really, I missed those years on running naked in the village and in the paddy fields...!!! Even my lil' princess has never seen a real sea!!! Gosh...poor baby...that is why I thinking of a family trip to one of those beautiful islands that we have surrounding the Peninsular of Malaysia sometime in October...

Am all jolly and excited of the island trip and I guess that the kids will definitely love it too...none of us has ever been to any of our own beautiful island, and I am gonna mend it!!!

Pulau Tioman, wait for our arrival and we are gonna have fun there too... ^_^

Books, books....and books....and more books

Venue:  Putra World Tarde Centre (PWTC)
Date  :   7th April - 6th May 2012
Event :  International Book Fair 2012

Hmmm....I didn't get to spend my time there...bummer... :'(  It's ok, there's probably another next year (same lame excuses) But hey that doesn't mean that my family & I fall under the "not reading community" , ok...

We went to an infamous bookstore in a shopping mall in Petaling Jaya, well, I think I'm not suppose to write any direct name while blogging (ain't I?)...

We bought several books for the kids, Mr Mama and myself. I just love the smell of new prints!! A good book with a 300+ pages can be read within a day! Subject to no interference from other person, and in my case , my little monsters!!

The kids like to read as well, even though sometimes they are only reading chicky story books but hey, it's not easy to teach someone to simply love reading, I believe that it does not comes naturally.

Oh, since some of the titles from a particular author are finished in the store, I managed to buy them online!! Oh, I just love the net ^_^ and am now expecting those books to arrive in my doorsteps anyday... I shall update you guys on the titles soon...

Thanks for reading this entry ^_^

Rojak oh Rojak!! + Cendol...

Last week, on the way back from post office in Jalan Telawi, Bangsar it was soooo hot!!! Damn hot. My brother who acted as my driver for the day purposely passed by this "rojak" lorry at Jalan Bukit Pantai. 

Gosh, the "rojak" was so delicious. I'm not a real fan of rojak but from time to time I would crave for this delicacy...

I've tasted many rojak but personally, I like this one best! And gosh, I would normally finish my portion of this rojak happily...

I would like to consider rojak as a healthy dish since it has vegetables in it (cucumber and sweet turnip, sometimes bean sprouts too) ...Oh, but I don't like my rojak with bean sprouts (taugeh)......raser cam nak mati klu makan taugeh...

Credit goes to these 2 machas yg buat rojak power punya.... Oh, the sambal sotong is delicious too...

Pasni, klu ane-ane ni dah femes...jangan lupa bagi aku makan rojak free & cendol!!!
