Ampang Home Town Yong Tow Foo in Shah Alam

We have been searching high and low for this branch in Shah Alam and finally thanks to Jakel for opening an outlet in Seksyen 7, Shah Alam we managed to come across the best Yong Tow Foo in the world.

For those who are familiar with Shah Alam, I can easily say that the place is opposite the second entrance to UITM Shah Alam. In Malay they like to refer it as Pintu Belakang UITM. I would like to add a few more landmarks since I did not even know where is UITM's main entrance. Opposite to the 2nd entrance there are KFC, Pizza Hut and now Jakel.

There's a Wikimapia for reference. Refer here.

It has been a while since I last had the Yong Tow Foo in Ampang. If you haven't tried this, there is now a nearer option to go for those who are not keen to enter the KL territory. The taste is the same, price is at medium-expensive range. About 80 cents a piece. Sekali sekala makan... apa salahnya.

Trip to IKEA

I actually bought the ice cream for me...

Ina's Wedding 10th April 2010

A short entry as a reminder... my sister in law Zubina got married on the 10th of April 2010. That day Widan is 1 and a half years old. The akad nikah is held at Bandar Tun Hussein Onn and the reception dinner was at the UPM Banquet Hall.

Selamat Pengantin Baru......

How to install laminated flooring (D.I.Y)

The project started on 16th March 2010 although we bought the material way before. The delay is because we decided to paint the room first. It does make more sense to paint it first rather than having paint spots on the new laminated flooring.

Since this is our first try, we bought the cheapest material in the market. Best Floor brand with the price of RM2.99 per square feet. The room is 81sqft. So we bought 4 boxes of flooring with a total of roughly RM240. Since we are installing it on top of the existing tiles with existing tile skirting, we had to opt for the Ending profile. It comes in 9 feet long per piece and costs RM188 for 4 pieces. The other optional items are the Damp Proof Underlay and the Foam Underlay. Houz Depot do not sell these item in loose. So we had to buy 1 whole 500sqft piece which costs RM75 each. Total damage so far is RM578.

The other gadgets needed to install this are Jigsaw, ruler and rubber mallet.

The order of installing is self explanatory. First layer is the Damp Proof Underlay. Second layer would be the Foam Underlay, and lastly the flooring itself. Wifey did not snap any pictures of me installing the floor. As I mentioned the project started on 16th March 2010.

This last picture is taken on 28th March 2010. A little bit more to do. I just ordered the Adaptation profile last Friday. From this experience I can say that installing laminated flooring is easy. I am going to install it in the master bedroom next. :)

White Water Rafting 17042010

Before I delay this post to next month, let me put up a short note on this adventure. This is the first time for Wifey and I. The details of the trip as per informed by the organizer:

Location: Sungai Slim, (Grade 3)

Date: Saturday, 17 Apr 2010

Meeting point: Tanjong Malim Toll Exit . Please wait for us after you exit from the toll booth. There is construction at the PLUS area and roadside parking may be limited.

Meeting time: 09.00am

No of pax: 17 pax




[1] River sandals or lace up shoes for wearing on raft (no slippers or flip-flops allowed)

[2] Rafting attire: t-shirt / shorts

[3] Towel / toiletries

[4] A set of clothing for your return trip


[1] Sunscreen lotion

[2] Personal medication

[3] Straps for spectacles

[4] Goggles for contact lenses

[5] Plastic bag for your wet clothes

[6] Some drinking water for personal consumption.

The final number of participants is 15 of us. We were divided into 3 rafts. I did not remember what time we started rafting but we finished at 3pm. We were informed that the journey would take 2 - 2.5 hours but I think we were in the river for more than 3 hours.

It's a good first experience for me. The water level is low as it is not raining season now and Slim River is known for its narrow-ness and our raft most o the time ended being stuck in between boulders. We capsized a few times and to me that was the most exciting part of the trip.

We reached Cheras at 6:30pm and on our way back to Bukit Jelutong, the Vios went out of fuel. I had to walk to the petrol station. Just the perfect way to end my adventurous day.

Birthday Arianna 15032010

Lama betul tak update blog ni. Siap dah kene sound dengan Pengarah Jabatan Pembangunan Wanita Negeri Pulau Pinang.... anyway tahniah bro. You are on the right track.

So this update will be about Arianna's birthday last month. We decided to have a small event at home. The VIPs for the party are Marisa, Amily and Alyya. Arianna ade 5 cousin boy.. so for her birthday kesian la kalau tade geng.

Since its a small event, Wifey prepared soto, deserts and baked the birthday cake. We ordered Sate Zaini. Not many pictures taken as I was busy either eating or talking.
