Hai Ung Seafood Restaurant @ Kuala Selangor

The last time that we really hunt and ate some good seafood was during our Pangkor Island trip. The Pangkor Island post was suppose to be our grand post when we started out this blog but because it is quite lengthy so we were too lazy to blog about up till now…

We actually have a lot of backdated post queuing : Pei Pei’s Wedding, Melaka Trip, and lot and lots of food reviews…

Ok, back to the post, I’m starting to be in my long gas mode again… Chatterbox

Kuala Selangor was known for its fresh and cheap seafood. There were a number of seafood restaurant by the riverside that we were so confused as to where to go to.

We follow our instinct and ended up with this:
Hai Ung Seafood Restaurant
Hai Ung Seafood Restaurant. We chose this because it was the only that doesn’t look so commercialized.

The waitress or maybe the owner were very nice to us. We are no expert in seafood so we asked her to recommend us the the dishes:
We thought we ordered too little for 2 but when the dish came… Worried No wonder the waitress said it is going to be enough.

1. Butter fried ‘Lai Liu Ha’ (Mantis prawn), I always thought it sounded like a urinating prawn. The taste was just nice and was extremely crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.

2. Thorn spiky shell (siput duri). I’m not sure if I’ve named it correctly. Adrienne call it helicopter shell seafood. A very simple dish. Just steam it. Maybe I can DIY.. hehe

The special thing here though is the sauce.  Some sour-ish, a lil spicy sauce with some garlic and onion in it. DSCF1553

You don’t see much flesh right… It is all inside.

This is how you dig it up.
You have to eat it with the sauce as it’s bring out the freshness of it. Not too fishy taste even though it was steamed.

3. Last but not least crab is the must have dish for both the crab meat lover!
‘Kam Heong’ Crab (3 crabs here):
We actually asked for only 2 person but it turns out to be more than 3 person share. We were given 3 FAT and HUMONGOUS crab! There were lots of meat and definitely a crab that workout a lot because it have very chewy meat.

It was finger licking good! Haha it ended up quite messy…
It was really very hearty meal and with each a big coconut, yum yum… We spent hours finishing up the dishes but it’s all worth it.

I was actually wondering why the fireflies becoming extinct before this but I think I know why…
I seriously didn’t know where the water will channeled to.

The total bill was summed up to RM70 and the most expensive dish was the crab. The rest of the dishes were like less than RM 10 and the crab was about RM15 with the coconut RM8 each. If I’m not mistaken, the thorny snail was the cheapest dish of all!

On top of the hearty meal, you could also get a very good view and scenery right on top of the riverside. You should go there at 4pm –7pm timing.

Trust me beautiful sunset! We arrived a little late. What do you think?
This was taken using the camera timer. Does this picture look familiar to you? Thinking 

It’s our banner!!!! But with a little trick to it. We will reveal it in the next coming post..

The next table noticed us using the camera timer. Well it was quite obvious with a dozen times of timer. Yawn

They were kind enough to offer us some help. It did looked nicer right?
It was worth the hunt. We were satisfied with the food plus we got a seat next to the river. Recommended to you all and you might even want to try the restaurant around the area.

How to get there? From KL direction, as soon as you entered Kuala Selangor, look out for a long and big bridge across the Kuala Selangor river. As soon as you travelled across the river, turn left and turn right, it might look like a very small and narrow road with palm tree on both side.

You will soon reach a market. You could use the Restaurant Seafood Kuala Selangor sign from then on. Maybe you will get a better picture with Google Map.

Bluetooth Blues

I know 2 consecutive nibble tech is boring but I’ve got to put down what had happened to my headset yesterday!

i.Tech i.VoicePro was my ideal headset because PW will not know where I am. Even if I ever go to clubbing because only my voice will be heard, all clubbing noise will be cut.

But yesterday the headset:


What happened was i.VoicePro that I bought was broken after usage of less than 1 day… So sad~ The headset mic does not work.

This is what happened to me yesterday:
Me with the headset and Bro using his phone.
Me: “Hello!”
Bro: “Hello”
Me: “Can open the gate for me?”
Bro: “Har?”
Me: “Hey don’t play play a, open the gate!!!”
Bro: “Har?” and slammed the phone…
Me: Called again..
Same thing!! My bro said that he can’t hear a thing from my side, total silent…

I spent hours analyzing what’s the problem and made countless trial to PW.  Annoyed, she suggested to off the “killer noise” function and it works. My conclusion on the problem is either the second mic does not work or the software is not functioning properly.

So happen next day is my appointment for my jaw at the TM clinic at UH. I was kept waiting for some time and ended up too late to make it for second half of work so instead I head to Lowyat to settle this issue.

This is what happened at the service centre:
1. The serviceman flashed new software to the headset. He said it should be working now but I tried and nothing.

2. The serviceman gave me a new set. Called my aunt she said working.

3. I was happy and walked off. Called PW to try one last time whether the ‘killer noise’ function work. PW say not working.

4. Head back and ask about it. The serviceman told me that for the i.VoicePro, most of it have the same problem. This is due to the software problem that does not work properly with the mic. Knowing that he flashed a software that permanently disables the ‘killer noise’ function. So far they do not have the solution yet! HE DID NOT TELL ME THAT!!!

5. I asked him why the heck I pay extra for the function when i don’t have the function? He referred me to the PIC that sold me the set.

6.  After long discussion with the boss, Don (Heheh I got her name) told me that she can replace another headset and return the extra that I had paid.

7. I chose the second best option that I had tried on the other day. Jabra BT2050 at the price of RM120 which was RM8 lesser after negotiating the price. Don was very sorry. I was telling Don, if you had told me about the problem I wouldn’t had buy it and get angry and no trouble on both side.

My advice:
DON’T BUY i.VoicePro!!!

I don’t know if this applies to i.VoicePro only or not because there were quite alot of i.Tech headset returned for warranty when I was waiting for them to repair mine. Well that was also the other reason why I took Jabra which was NOT i.Tech.

Overall, MCM service was alright. At least I get my result and are able to return the extra in cash so I was quite happy with Don’s service.

Tongue PW’s pocket is now heavier compare to Sunday’s…


Nibble Blues,


PS: When I got back home, only that I realized that the charger is still attached to the plug point in my house. I forgot to return the i.VoicePro’s charger to Don and she did not check the box content. I really pity her. Sorry, I don’t think I have time to get back to Lowyat again. Nailbiting

Bluetooth Headset Hunt + Review

A special dedication to PW.

It’s been a few months that I have been driving illegally and dangerously, talking on the phone with one hand while driving a manual car! My wired headset that comes with my phone went MIA, result of transferring the headset around different cars.

Beacuse of that I was unhappy because I was driving dangerously and was happy because I get to buy a new headset Big Grin. The lost headset was in a extremely bad shape with the connector and the headspeaker piece super glued many times.

I’ve made up my mind to buy a Bluetooth headset like years before I lost my wired headset. Why Bluetooth? Day dreaming

Wired Bluetooth
The phone have to be taken out at least once to be attached The phone can stay in your bag or pocket
End up in a tangled mess No wire so just hook on to ear
Restricted movement when turning left and right Just hook On
Ugly with wire dangling told you to JUST HOOK ON EAR!!!


Buying anything for me is always not easy for me so the battle of research and analysis start with: Clip on or ear hook?Wired_vs_HookOn
FYI, the picture above is 2 awarded headset by i.Tech Clip II mini and i.VoicePro with Stuff Readers Choise Winner 2007 and Gold award by HWM respectively.

Clip on Ear Hook
Neat with a small earpiece Ugly accessory to ear
Does not solve restricted movement Solve restricted movement problem
Wired… What the difference between the normal wired headset? No wire… This is the main reason to get a Bluetooth headset. yea…

Obviously, Ear hook won… Ting Ting Ting…Applause

It is not easy to research on headset performance online so we head on to Lowyat Plaza for Bluetooth headset hunt to check test out the performance of the headset.

Shopping at Lowyat is like looking for a needle in sea for the cheapest store. We came to a shop that offers RM30 cheaper in any range of bluetooth headset compare to other store. It is around the back quiet area (Lot-1-TC26-28).

At first we were thinking whether they are selling ‘water’ goods but no. Overlooked the name 'Mobile Concept (M) Sdn Bhd’, which was the wholesale and main distributor for bluetooth headset! Hahaha…

The girl at the shop were very kind and cute. She was really patient with us. You’ll know why…

We ask for sample and tryouts on various headset to test which will perform the best. Well, mostly tested was i.Tech bluetooth headset as they are no 1 best selling headset in HK, Malaysia and Singapore.

Most headset function are almost the same so design is the deciding factor. Unless they have some killer function like quality sound and powerful noise cancelation capability.

Note: The below comparison is subjected to the battery condition as well as considering the fact that it is a sample unit.

First, we tried i.Tech i.Oval 303.
i.Oval 303
1. Look: Look sleek, small and lightweight. 4/5
2. Speaker: The speaker sound were good. 3/5
3. Mic: The microphone is moderately good. 3/5
4. Price: RM79.90 Good price. 5/5
This can be use for MP3 listening as well. –>Sorry for my mistake Updated on 21/07/2009

Next, Jabra BT2050. We got to try out some other brands to make some comparison.
Jabra BT2050
1. Look: Look fat, small and lightweight. 4/5
2. Speaker: It is the best in its range compared to i.Air 301 and i.Oval. 4/5
3. Mic: The microphone is moderately good. 3/5
4. Price: RM129.90 Slightly on high for this range model. 3/5
Not sure if can play MP3.

Next, i.Tech i.Air 301.
i.Air 301
1. Look: Look sleek, big and moderately weight. 3/5
2. Speaker: The speaker sound were full of noise. 2/5
3. Mic: PW said she could not stand the outcome of my voice on this. 2/5
4. Price: RM89.90 Moderately priced. 4/5
Not sure if can play MP3.

Lastly, i.Tech i.VoicePro. The most expensive one because it comes with a ‘Kill Noise’. How? There is 2 mic on this phone one is responsible to take in the voice and the other with the surrounding noise. (Voice mix with noise) – surrounding noise = Voice only.
1. Look: Look fat, big, ugly and moderately weight. 2/5
2. Speaker: It was excellent voice and very little noise. I’m not sure if the noise cancellation have any effect on this. 5/5
3. Mic: Excellent!!! No noise can be heard, ONLY YOUR VOICE!!!  5/5 <— No one will know where you are!
4. Price: RM190.00 Quite Expensive. 2/5
Disadvantage: you can’t listen to MP3 using this only for call purpose.

The ultimate decision rest with PW as she always get frustrated when talking on phone with me because:
1. I can’t hear her well with my K810-too-soft-speaker with me saying “har?” repeatedly.
2. She can’t really hear me when I’m driving in my car wind howling sound (Sunny boy is old). or with my radio on.

After a very long thought and testing, we decided to get the most expensive one (i.Tech proudest product):
i.VoicePro details

It comes with 3 standard colors (there is a limited edition color ‘gold’ which was priced RM40 extra):itech-ivoicepro color

I unboxed it immediately as I got back:
Unbox iTech i.VoicePro
The pack comes with the headset (of course Tongue), USB charger, 3 pin adapter to USB convertor (loved this one, convenient, can use for other USB appliance), extra hook clip and manual. (clockwise)

Thanks for reading such a lengthy post. It is specially dedicated to PW for buying this headset for me as an early birthday present!!!




Nibbled Blue-teeth,


PS: The bluetooth headset were fully charged way before I finish writing this post!

To PW:
Yes, next is your present. Start scouting for it now… You have 6 month to look out for it! Tongue hahah… Just tell me ya if anything comes along! Love you!

Been busy with work and are back as per requested by HC’s “update… update… update”.

Actually I’ve had a very rough week. My body decided to lock up my jaw and throw the key out the window. Must be because of the increasing crime rate around my neighborhood. Need to protect my gold tooth.. hehe.. Tongue

Actually the lock jaw happened when I was taking a humongous bite on a ‘Heong Peng’. After that bite, I can’t open my mouth to chew. I suck at the piece for at least 10 min before I can swallow it.

This had happened before but it lasted maybe 5-10min only. This time it lasted till now (approximately 2 weeks). This time really ‘jia lat’ lo. I desperately need a key to unlock my jaw!!!

Cannot open mouth means:

No eating! No yawning! No Laughing! No Yelling! and even No Kissing!  Surprise

This is serious stuff wei. According to research, I can die from malnourishment. (Wah~ so drama…)

I think my symptom could be Trismus. Taking the advise from the WWW, head to a dental clinic for check up. The dentist only took a 10 min look and charged me RM30 for a letter that refer me to University Hospital (UH) dentist for further check up. ‘Jia Lat’ again!

Maybe I shouldn’t calculate on the RM30 too much, the letter referred me direct to the dean/supervisor of the dentist Bilik Rawatan Utama (BRU). At least some experience doctor attended to me before passing it on to the Masters student.

They took X-ray of my teeth and jaw. And my teeth turns out to be:teeth
Hehehe.. I got this off the Google image and edited it so not exactly mine. What you see is for illustration purpose only.

WTH I have 37 teeth altogether!!! A normal teeth set have 32 teeth only! The four canine teeth illustrated on the x-ray above never erupted out of the gum. The wisdom teeth are also giving me problem and supposed to be extracted as well.

The main problem was my right jaw joint (circled in black).  
The disc was dislocated to the front, therefore, giving me a restricted movement of my jaw to open not more than 25mm, 1.5 finger width.

Normal human can open their mouth over >35mm, usually 3 finger width. (PW tried and she can fit 4 fingers.. Thinking) Why don’t you try and include the answer in the comment?

Now I have to follow strict rules that the mouth specialist gave me:
1. Go for strict soft food diet.
2. Use hot packs 5 times a day
3. Don’t yawn and don’t laugh <— WTH?! Everytime PW make me laugh, I have to hold on to my jaw so that it doesn’t just fell and hang around.

UH gave me a very good impression all round. All the consultation and x-ray only cost me RM5 and that is for registration. And the wisdom tooth extraction cost me only RM100 where private clinic might cost at least RM300 per wisdom tooth. On top of everything the Master student that consulted me is hot with B-square! (sorry PW, pulling my ears now~)

Below are some very useful links that I found:


I know I’m blogging but with such a long gas-ness. What to do? It’s been a long time ma.

Nibble of Thoughts 1st Step to Celebrity Status.

Recently, our blogging motivation has been dropping. Not as eager and keen as we used to. Our bad, we know..

But But But…

OMFG!! Nibble of Thoughts is officially FAMOUS!!!! 46

You know why??

We got ourselves a cat sneaking around lately.. Not those cute cat you see in icanhascheezburger but a COPYCAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The most hideous type of cat ever~

Even worse than this.


Wahahahaha, Damn Ugly!!! Rolling on the floor


Remember Catfish’s post on Microsoft CIBAI: Unfortunate Naming? 

I am proud to say this remains one of the most defining moment of our blogging career <- (tak tau malu, not even 2 months blogging already calling it career. Blushing) When we see the response and hits garnered to the post, our hidung, buntut all mengembang.statistic

That was also our lucky break when Kenny Sia blog about some unfortunate naming for a Condom right after we posted that. We share our post there to “promote” our findings.

LOOK!!Kenny sia

Imagine the joy that Catfish felt when he first found the topic. He put in so much effort perfecting the post with the extra link of Top 10 Unfortunate Naming. After he complete that post, immediately he IM me to read it. Never have I seen him so excited about blogging.

But what do you know, we found another copy of it, word for word right here.copycat post

Not even a single alterations. Same picture. Not even changing the smiley to suits his style which is plain and without personality. 

Currently, Catfish and myself feels our excitement, joy and pride slowly dissolving to nothing but anger.

We do not mind if you take our topic and blog about it like Vkashin or others. As long as you insert your own opinion and if you are kind enough, give some credit to your source.

I got no time to browse through his blog but by going thorough his first page only, there is only one conclusion. That guy cannot write to safe his life.

First post: Copied Song Lyrics

Second Post: Post copied off Nibble of Thoughts

Third post: 10 words post with not even a title

Fourth Post: 25 words post with no title again (Not even capable to write a title in his own written post)

Fifth Post: Copied Song Lyrics

Sixth Post: 9 WORDS!!!!!!!!!!! Need I say more?

Is that even called a post?

All his post consist only short rambling which provide absolutely no added value at all to its reader. Or not it’s just song lyrics which he did not provide any hint on how it relates to him. What’s the point then?

Is that guy incapable of expressing anything at all in his own word? Why must it be copied from somewhere or some songs?

I am not sure I am being mean or maybe not mean enough but word by word plagiarism is something I hate and only will be attempts by stupid people. He is indirectly insulting our intelligence by thinking it won’t be discover.

In a way, I would like to see him retaliate to this post rather than delete his post. This would be interesting. But don’t hold your breath. Judging by his post, he could be thick face enough to just ignore all this.

And guess what? He was born in the year of snake.. Sneaky bastard.


I guess snake skin is not that thick after all. He deleted it.


So here’s the cache to prove we are not dreaming. (it might be gone by tomorrow)

Due to his age we are posting a toned down version of our true feeling so no colorful words here… Smug


Against Plagiarism,

PW & Catfish
