The New Kia Forte Review

Car : Kia Forte 1.6/2.0
Price :  1.6 starts from 75,800/ 2.0 starts from 93,800
Ratings : 4 stars

Went for lunch and saw this fine car parking along the shops. A striking red colour Kia Forte. Nice. Check the price on the net and the 1.6 model starts from Rm75,800. 2.0 version starts from Rm93,800. The cheapest in its class. Fully imported from Korea and in my opinion the best value of money.

Better looking with skirting.

Good looking backside.

Pasar Mini Taghzia - Arab Specialties Shop

Location : Pasar Mini Taghzia Kajang
Address : 8-9 Jalan Sepakat Indah 2/1, Taman Sepakat Indah 2, 43000 Kajang, Selangor.
GPS Coordinates : N2 58.470 E101 46.940

We came to this shop at Kajang selling all sorts of items originated from Arab countries. This probably due to the strong arab community staying nearby the area. If you are a fan of things from middle east countries, why not drop by and have a look.

All sorts of items available.

Bavaria a non alcoholic malt drinks with flovours such as peach, strawberries or original flavour.

Chicken halal luncheon meat. Must taste next time.

Don't know what is this? From the cover looks like material for making cake or something like that.

The catch of the day, bread stick, bavaria, homous, hot sauce and feta cheese for goat milk.

This roti arab a good combination with homous. Must try.

Bangi Kopitiam Bandar Baru Bangi

Location : Bangi Kopitiam Bandar Baru Bangi
GPS Coordinates : N2 57.633 E101 45.197
Ratings : 2 & half Stars

A very nice outlook. The design seem to be the generic looks such as other famous kopitiam like PapaRich, Oldtown, Oldtaste.....blah....blah...

The interior quite unique as it have a retro look such as Ipoh Station Puchong.

Check out the old fridge and the old tv box.

The cowboy style entrance to the toliet.

Spare no expense for the menu.

Quite colourful with photos and reasonable pricing.

I like this cincau barli ais as it boiled from fresh barli not like some shops that make from powder barli.

The shop recommendation. Nasi lemak ayam rendang. Frankly, quite dissappointed as the rice not so fragrant and quite hard. Not as good as the first time I ate. Maybe the standard drop due to the chinese new year holidays.

Instant noodle with sausages. So so only and quite salty. Hope it will improve next time I visit this place.

Project Rearing Earthworms - My New Hobby

Everyone got their own hobbies like rearing pets dogs, cats, fish and others but I tried leeches before and now going into rearing earthworms after my last project failed as you can read from my previous post:

I feel leeches can be tough to rear especially on finding the right food like eel or catfish ( for its blood ) and worrying not to contaminated the water as asidic waters will kill them.

As the current trend of saving the environment and going organic, I decided to go into earthworms rearing as the main reasons of getting its castings. The process of using earthworms to turn our households garbage like vegetables, fruits and other organics products into high quality compost is called vermicomposting, but most people just call it a 'worm farm'. Composting does not require the use of worms, but when they're added to the mix, it becomes much more efficient and complete.

First of all, I went to my friends house and dig out some worms from her gardens. Then before putting the worms into a plastic garbage container, I put lots of shredded paper into the garbage container and then put on the soils and tree leaves as illustrated below:

Standard garbage bin you can get from any hardware stores. Cost around Rm10.

After this, just water the container to make it moist as worms like cool wet conditions. The final process will be letting the worms go and monitor from time to time when the food seem to be dissappear and water the container if its too dry. The paper below will keep moisture and create a ideal condition for earthworms.

Look at the earthworms busy hiding from the sunlight as just managed to take a shot before its dissappearing act. More to update later as I will show the product of vermicomposting in my later post.

To be continue......................

Aladdin Restaurant Kelana Jaya

Location : Aladdin Restaurant Kelana Jaya
GPS coordinates : Doesn't matter
Ratings : Lousy

I saw one review on tv on this restaurant and decided to come to try it out. Located near the Kelana Jaya giant hypermarket.. This is a chinese halal restaurant that services Chinese and western food with a little of Hong Kong mixture food concept. The restaurant is well decorated but not many crowd sighted at the restaurant. While inside the restaurant, I do my usual thing snapping photos here and there and to my surprise the manager came over and told me that no photos allowed. I said ok and thought that this restaurant must be damm good with their food and not wanting anyone copy cat them. I ordered some noodles ( handmade) and roast duck with high hopes of good food. When the food came, I saw the duck drenched in a sauce and look wet. I tasted it and then was very dissappointed. The noodles also so so only and I think my own cook cintan noodles well better than this. In my opinion, don't waste your time here and better eat home cook instant noodles.
