aibohphobia... anyone?

AibophobiA
Fear of palindrome

1. palindrome
is a word, phrase, number or other sequence of units that can be read the same way in either direction

2. evil is a deed as i live

3. SATOR square

4. tattarrattat

5. 我为人人,人人为我

枯眼望遙山隔水,往來曾見幾心知。壺空怕酌一杯酒,筆下難成和韻詩。迷路阻人離別久,訊音無雁寄回遲。孤燈夜守長寥寂,夫憶妻兮父憶兒。

6. The "forward reading" of the last sentence is about husband missing wife and father missing son, while the "backward reading" is about son missing father and wife missing husband.

7.
73 =     111
74 = 777
76 = 12321
79 = 1367631

so.... aibohphobia, anyone?

Chamang Falls a.k.a. The Lover's Falls


It was a great day to visit the waterfall right after the rain in the afternoon (duh! obviously not). It so happened that we will pass by this average town and heading to the falls which leads my some barely meet juniors.


magnificent sunset view at Bentong

This waterfall was rather easy to be found in this town as there are road sign everywhere. The path getting to the waterfall is just like the typical mountain winding path, which takes about 15 minutes to reach the place.


Winding mountain path

The waterfall view was way better than the one I visited in Langkawi, but the water and the environment seems to be polluted where water actually shows a milky yellowish down stream.

Cam-whoring with three juniors from Bentong

Surprisingly the juniors (maybe I should stop calling them juniors) were so generously and kind enough leading us around the falls, which also have a chance to stepped on the hanging bridge leading to the other part of jungle.

Well, if you happened to visit the Bentong town, please visit to the fall instead.

All joined up and coming back!

So, it is serious the year of reminiscent and restoration, or just people had exhausted their inspiration in creating another story of the time?
Knight Rider (2008)

Knight Rider (1985)

Of course with all the latest technology in software and programming, the KITT talking car seriously have more advance features comparing the old, hopefully refreshing.

Seriously, is it the end of the world to push something old out from the bottom of the warehouse, repack, and selling out?

Anyway, was glad that Grey's Anatomy is back in town! I still recall how i finish all four seasons in an overnight which makes my eyeball swollen like they are gonna fall off from where they belong. Hopefully make up another great series!

Delicacies in Kemaman

Before I have my foot stepped into Kemaman I thought the place was just like another ordinary-kampung-styled town. But I am aware that the famous coffee and stuffed crab is originated from here to other parts of this country.

And i was so lucky to have this opportunity to taste the famous dishes in Kemaman, thanks to my friends.

Busy street in Kemaman
Magnificent riverside view from town

We were on our way heading back to KL after a month of stress, which so happened we need to stop at this town for our lunch. The shop which we went, as follow, seriously holds its fame by publishing alot of articles and newspaper cutting to those who doubt how good is their food.
The famous stuffed crab restaurant

It is so crowded on a ordinary day where during lunch time you could hardly find a place to dine-in. the shop is famous of some seafood, in which they also serve some appetizing sour and spicy prawn too. We ordered some stuffed crabs, fried rice, and some mix-fried vege.

The famous stuffed crab

Now, how would I describe this? The shredded crab flesh mixed with some flour and meat, stuffed inside the crab's carapace, coated with a layer of egg-batter, deep fried till it cooked. the taste of the stuff content was nothing special, which means you couldn't really taste the crab on 'crab', but a mixture of something. The thing is, they have the seriously nice chili sauce as dip, where I could finish a bowl of white rice just with the chili sauce!

After the meal, we went for a cooling spot where the famous coffee shop in Kemaman, the Hai Peng coffee. It is so famous where the shop itself acted as the landmark for the town.

Famous and identical building

inner of the shop

the shop keeps the reminiscence decorations in which they have the early 60's F&N poster sticking on the wall, all sorts of meaningful antiques spotted around the shop. The coffee taste too commercialized in which they seriously a slight better than the normal kopitiam coffee, not worth the price thou.
Iced coffee


You may want to try to fulfil your curiousity, however, frankly speaking, it doesn't worth what its hearsay for.

Nice bright sky on our way back, where it seriously make my day! Happy Holidays!

Story Listener

I’m a story listener.

I like to listen to various kinds of story; I like to observe how rich will a person facial expression get when they are sharing. Joyful element always be the favourite one. Joy seriously does infect people. Though you were having very moody day, though outside was pouring rain, though you have lots of stuff to be taken care of, just listen to a joyful story and will make the rest of your day.

Stories need not to be fictions. Need not to be complex plotting. Real-life story is also a perfect sign of sharing. Of course, the real experience always touches people’s heart, making them to feel how the way you feel in the story.

Somehow, I realized that listening really skilful; you are not going to pretend you were interested throughout the listening process as it may be damn obvious how you take things easily. Pretending to listen is like you are faking your sincerity in the friendship, which also the worst thing you would expect from a friend.

Love may get faded but friendships are year- round. You may meet someone really breaks your heart but there is always a person who are readily lending his or her shoulder for you to weep, comfort you whenever you are ready. Commit into a friendship is however easier than commit into a relationship.

So, do you have any story to share? I have my ears prepared.

Tom Yam Luxurious Frenzy

I didn't know there is such classy place in town ever since i got my arse here in Terengganu 2 years back. The place, which according to a friend, was famous for it's Thai cuisine, which is also my favourite!

The Puribali
the restaurant was situated at the round-a-bout of Terengganu Batu Bersurat, which makes it hard to missed due to it's the only shop with such lighting at night along the street. The road from Secret Recipe may also lead to this restaurant in which a strategic place.

the inner deco of this restaurant sells a sense of romance and family where the lighting are soft, with air-conditioned ground floor, first floor with open-air environment.
deco on the wall with rich Siamese taste

There is these recommended dishes from the restaurant which in reasonable price.

medium sized Tomyam Talay Nam Sai of RM33

generous portion of Green Curry Chicken (Geang Keaw Wan Gai) of RM13

Gai Hor Bai Tuey (Pandan Fried Chicken) for RM12

The taste for the dishes is impeccable, which compared to all the stalls so-called-authentic Thai restaurant. recommendation to go for the TomYam Talay Nam Sai which also a little pricy but worth the taste!

This restaurant also have a very special instrument in collecting the bill!



Heaven for tomyam freaks!

House

House: Season 5

I always think in certain extent I'm like House.
I'm not saying the professional and knowledgeable part of him, of course, I'm only tiny in comparison.
The way how he do harm to people due to physically self-abasement, also the way on how he treated his friends or people close to him.

reflection is omnipresent.

welcome back to town, house.

If Only I Can Turn Back Time

Give me time to reason,
give me time to think it through
Passing through the season,
where I cheated you
I will always have a cross to wear,
but the bolt reminds me I was there
So give me strength,
to face this test tonight

If only I could turn back time,
If only I had saved what I still had
If only I could turn back time,
I would stay for the night... for the night

Claim your right to science,
Claim your right to see the truth
Though my pangs of conscience,
Will drill a hole in you
I've seen it coming like a thief in the night,
I've seen it coming from the flesh of your light
So give me strength,
to face this test tonight

If only I could turn back time,
if only I had saved what I still had
if only I could turn back time,
I would stay.
The bolt reminds me I was there
the bolt reminds me I was there

Do you still remember "The X-files"?

If you are an 80's baby, and you like all the sci-fi stuff when you're in 90's, sure you will not miss this great series of sci-fi which seriously make you fantasize to be adopted by alien someday. and the familiar very own tune of this series is just so identical which makes people hard to missed.

"The truth is out there" phrase which famed by this series has been getting forgotten by the generations nowadays. I believe Rob Bowman is making his very best effort to revive back the memory of fans by directed two movies, which was after an interval of a decade, by pushing out the first in 1998 ("Fight the Future") and after a decade, in this year, I want to Believe.

The X-files: Fight the Future (1998)

The X-files: I Want to Believe (2008)


Not to say that breathing new life into the old show is vanpidity, it should have some breakthrough where the main focus shouldn't be still on the suspension of Mulder finding his sister and the Scully wanted to pursue her dream.

Limitation in reality always present. But if you do not give a damn in plotting a better story line, you might want to let the people keep their nostalgia as good as it was. Ruining a once upon of the greatest series doesn't seems help much in reviving the series but a materialistic tag.

Do you still believe the truth is out there?
I want to believe.
