Oh! It’s raining men! Hallelujah~

Well, not really raining men.. 

I prefer raining Megan Fox. But if the report is true that Megan Fox is a transvestite.. cue song* Oh! It’s raining men! HALLELUJAH!!! hahaha…

Back to point. The song is actually describing how’s the weather in the room.

If rain come from clouds, then this is our cloud. A big faulty dusty white cloud that had been raining indoor for almost a week.

Haeir Water Leaking

The Haier air-cond in the room was leaking water into the room instead of flowing out of the room… Sad Which means we can’t on the air-cond for too long because once it starts to get slightly cold this is what happened. catching rain

drip* drip* drip*

Our ears were prepared to pick up any sign of dripping water. One drip everyone in the room will be running with a pail to the air-cond. Very good exercise.

We can’t on the air-cond without supervision. So we have to sleep in sweat through the hot nights for 4-5 days. In the end we can’t take it anymore and determined to turn the air-cond ON no matter what. After some time of rescuing the table from rain, this is what happened:
Pail of water

With a watchful guard:
Monitor the rain

After much investigation, I was told that the leaking air-cond is probably due to blockage in the pipe directing air to the outside unit. Means it’s time to give your air-cond a service. Chemical service is a better option to clear the blockage.

But during our last service, the guy told us that the air-cond was not in a very good shape. The blower/fan of the Haier is blowing like an old man.

WoOOoo… WooOO… WOOO… Wooo… WooOO…

Instead of:


So the ultimate solution is to replace the OLD MAN


We went to scout for prices typical of me. Really thanks to my aunt to accompany along.

Found one decent shop for all household electric appliances Tan Boon Ming ( They have about 5 branches throughout Klang Valley and they have one of the widest range of brand and series. How often can you see Daikin, Panasonic, Hitachi, Mitsubishi, Sharp and Midea together. Well you better check out TBM.

Our criteria for an aircond:
1. Inverter type since we switch ON the aircond for more than 8h throughout the whole night.
2. Reliable and cooling
3. Environmental safe (on father’s request to safe the earth) and R22 HCFC gas will be faced out by 2015. Check this out:

Daikin is cheap but were using the R22 HCFC. We ended up with Hitachi, Mitsubishi and Panasonic which are using R410 gas.

Ultimately we ended up with:Mitsubishi Electric Inverter Aircond
Why? Because it is the cheapest among the 3 and also I had not come across any bad complain about it on reviews online.

The best compliment I would give this aircond is that it is one of the most silent aircond that I had ever come across. Not a single noise from the compressor and at times when the aircond stop operating, you might even think that “Eh?! Didn’t I just switched it ON”.

This is to show you how cold (on my face) and how satisfied (PW) is with the aircond:
Mistubishi Aircond


Please watch this video! Gave PW a shock. She only knew of the Geri Halliwell version.

(I think this original version will take your attention rather than the Geri Halliwell’s Tongue)

“Tonight for the first time just about half past ten…

For the first time in history it’s gonna start raining men!!!”

“It’s raining men! Hallelujah!

We can’t get any sleep now… Because my room is getting soaking wet~! Argh!”

“So that each and every household could find her perfect air-cond

Please Stop Raining Men! Yeah!~”

Hahaha too bad I’m not good at modifying lyrics…… Tongue


Thanks Dad for sponsoring!!! Really appreciate it!

Love you so much Papa

Not Hiroshima but Lowyat?

In Penang, we have Char Kuew Teow.

In Melaka, we have Gula Melaka Chendol.

In Ipoh, we have Steamed Chicken Bean Sprout Rice.

In Klang, we have Bak Kut Teh.

In Ampang, we have Yong Tao Fu.


While in Japan, Sai-san have taught me that:

The finest Takoyaki can be found in Osaka.

But highlight of the day is Hiroshima Okonomiyaki!!

Okonomi means “What you like” or “what you want” and yaki means “grilled” or “bbq”… So basically it’s grill everything you like. PW wonder if it’s possible to add in marshmallow.

Unfortunately, I've never been to Hiroshima and Sony HQ in Japan is no where near it. Lucky enough Sai-san did manage to get me to try out Okonomiyaki at a bazaar near Japan HQ during one of the visit. But still he said the FINEST OKONOMIYAKI IS FOUND IN HIROSHIMA!!!

I think I missed Japan alot~~

Sigh~ So I have to settle for the next best thing nearest to Sony BANGI instead. While browsing through the World Wide Web for new Japanese buffet (We found one. Wait for it) I stumble upon this Okonomiyaki place in Lowyat.

Restaurant Jepun Okonomiyaki Citarasa Asli Hiroshima:Restaurant Jepun Okonomiyaki Lowyat
This shop give me the same feeling I have with all the restaurant in Japan. It is cramped.

The Okonomiyaki here is a little different from those I ate in Japan. A common version in Tokyo is more like a flatten Takoyaki with more flour, ‘liu’ and without yakisoba.

After a long look at the menu, we ordered Tuna Okonomiyaki

and the Okonomiyaki All Stars
okonomiyaki all star

All Stars contain all the ingredient available except Tuna in one Okonomiyaki as illustrated below.Okonomiyaki all star

The dishes are served on a hot “teppan” in front of the chef cooking just like how they do it at Mr. Teppanyaki. PW enjoyed the whole session till the bit.starting off okonomiyaki

They even have this notice on the table just like how Japanese like to do with any warning or notice. Again I miss Japan.
okonomiyaki teppan

The chef give me a feel of a Japanese where they will strive for perfection for every dish. The dish he prepared must be in perfect shape, same amount of ingredient and neatness with no loose cabbages around. A little bit of OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) I must say.

PW was particularly interested with the chef (guy) with his muscular arm Rolling Eyes performing all the kung fu moves with the spatula. Sigh looking like this –> Day dreaming
okonomiyaki chef
I’ve tried to get more photos here but his moves are way too fast to be captured by a camera. But anyway if you are interested, do stop by at the shop and have a peek girls…

I can’t stand how PW kept staring at the chef moves so I tried to pull out some kung fu moves with the spatula and some muscles… Big Grin Keng mou…

The shop did a very good job in serving the food in terms of friendliness and cleanliness. There was once I asked for extra Okonomiyaki sauce on my dish. The waitress said that they have run out of it so they never allow us to add on our self. Still she gave me a few good squirt to make my dish taste better!

I think it is a little pricey. Our total bill sums up to about RM50. However, I think the price is just alright since I got the last one at about 500 yen so conversion is around RM20.

The Okonomiyaki here taste alright for the Malaysian standard but it is near to nothing even if you are comparing to those Okonomiyaki that you can get at the street side in Tokyo.

I want to go Japan again~!! I-ta-da-ki-mas!!
