Mixed Pork Soup @ Sun Tho Yuen, Sungai Way

It started off with a small group of us meeting up for lunch but the group grew to 11 people with the help of WhatsApp group.

Recommended by Eric and Dj Anatta, Sun Tho Yuen is located in one of the remaining villages of Petaling Jaya. It’s an old school coffee shop –  probably a favourite of the retirees of the village. It has a healthy mixture of Chinese, Malay and Indian inhabitants. But I guess foreigners have moved in too.


The restaurant has no visible signboard outside but you can see it inside the shop. You wont miss the mixed pork soup stall inside.

Old school comic character – Lou Fu Chee.

We ordered their well known mixed pork soup, pork trotters, braised tofu and eggs. Instead of white rice, they serve yam rice. But if you come too late, you’ll probably get white rice and scraps.

The pork soup came with various parts of the pig like the stomach, liver, lung, intestine, belly and pork balls. I’m not a big fan of pig spare parts.

But the highlights to me were their yam rice and pork trotters. Yam rice was fragrant. Pork trousers were wrapped with a soft piece of skin and fat which melt in your mouth.

The other highlight is that the price was extremely affordable. There were 11 of us and the bill came up to a grand total of RM104!

DJ Anatta @ Boardwalk, KL Hilton

DJ Anatta spins at Boardwalk, KL Hilton every Thursday to Saturday from 8pm to 11pm. Boardwalk is a newly established poolside bar. However, it is still in its experimental stage and not officially open. Heard that it will be officially open in March.

Since its not officially open, there was no crowd.

A group of us decided to visit Dj Anatta at Boardwalk on a Saturday and also check out the place. As some of you may know, KL Hilton and Le Meridian share a pool. The pool is quite massive.

You can also get a great view of KL City. It’s even better if you get a seat at the VIP area.

Overall, it’s a nice place with awesome ambiance.

Of course, with hot DJ Anatta spinning, the place becomes perfect!

My only complaint of this place is the drinks. It is too expensive and they are not very generous with their drinks.

My RM30 Strongbow…not even full!

If they did reduce the price a little or be a little bit more generous with their drinks, this place would be perfect.

Can’t wait for it to be officially open!

Melaka – 30.10.2010

The first thing that came into my mind when I arrived Melaka was DJ Anatta’s gig back in 2006. She had a gig at Pure Club hence a few of us accompanied her there.

There we encountered some helicopter boys.

Anyway, my trip this time was to accompany A, who had to go there for work. We ate and ate and ate throughout the trip.

We started off with chicken rice balls, roasted chicken, barbecued pork and hot and spicy cabbage at Famosa Chicken Rice Balls. I wanted small portions for each dish but the waiter gave us too much -___- Our plan to leave some space for other food was interrupted.

We didn’t go to Restoran Chung Wah for chicken rice balls because I like the dark sauce provided by Famosa.

Anyway, the queue at Chung Wah was crazy!

I wonder what is so good about this place. I came here once and I find it so-so.

We decided to take a break from food and visited the Cheng Ho Museum. Entry was RM10 per person.

The museum provides a guided tour both in English and Chinese. The tour lasted around and hour.

If you didn’t know who is Cheng Ho, Cheng Ho is a famous Chinese official who had traveled all around the world in the 1400s. Author of the book “1421 – The Year China discovered America“, Gavin Menzies, claimed that Cheng Ho found America before Christopher Columbus.

Notwithstanding that Cheng Ho was a eunuch, some of his descendants can be traced until today. Apparently, most of them live in Thailand and their pictures are shown in the museum.

Our tour guide also gave us a brief explanation on how forced castration was done on eunuch in China. According to him, a boy’s penis together with his balls will be carved out and covered for 3 days. If he is able to pass water on the 3rd day, he will be able to survive. uuuhh..

Plenty of porcelain in this museum. Many of them donated or loaned by locals.

Overall, I think the artifacts and presentation of this place is rather mediocre. I don’t understand why Malaysia museums like to use mannequins. I don’t remember seeing any in the British Museum in London or Mets in NYC. Some local politician got contract to provide mannequins is it?

After our museum tour, we walked to Jonker 88 for our favourite cendol.

However, the queue was bloody long and we decided to forget Jonker 88. As we were about to enter the shop next to Jonker 88, our friend Frederick waved at us.

He was in front of the line and he offered to buy us cendol! Woohooo.

He even gave us a bowl of curry laksa cause he over ordered. -_____- I was soooooooooo fulll!

Before my trip to Melaka, my colleague recommended me to try the Mille Crepe in Nadeje Cafe. Apparently, it is better than Food Foundry hence I was determined to try it before I head back to KL.

Before setting to Nadeje Cafe…we bought a packet of fresh onde-onde 😀

Diamonds & Pearls ft. DJ Anatta @ 7atenine – 22.3.2008

As part of the F1 party series, aunty DJ Anatta played an awesome set at 7atenine.

7atenine is a…well it’s hard to explain. It serves food – al fresco dining with Asian and Western cuisine. It also has a DJ console and small dance floor. It’s owned by the husband and wife team who also owns Souled Out and Café WIP in Kuala Lumpur.
The interior is excellent and has great view of the Petronas Towers. Music is not too loud, great place to chat. Drinks are reasonably priced too.

[Pictures courtesy of Sow]
Cris, Sow, Melvin, ivN, Eric and I went on ground to give our support to DJ Anatta. Right opposite us was a group of ladies tearing the dance floor with DJ Anatta’s music. We were pretty amazed as this group of ladies are umm.. looked like they’re having their time of their life as their husbands are not in town.
We later found out that the group of ladies were actually DJ Anatta’s ex classmates. O_o
Before DJ Anatta’s session ended, we were given free pasta (in a paper box). I was told that this was a practice by 7atenine to clear their leftovers whenever their kitchen closes.

Jonker’s Walk, Melaka @ Melaka

Last week, before DJ Anatta’s set @ Pure Club, we went to Jonker’s Walk for dinner.

At night, Jonker’s Walk is filled with stalls selling food, clothes and many other rubbish. We had to brave through a sea of people to get to the other end.

We were greeted by the sight of a crowd surrounding an uncle. The uncle was performing some sort of martial arts and also promoting his herb. Apparently he’s some sort of Malaysia Book of Records holder. Record holder for breaking the most coconuts with his bare hands …I’m serious!

He had this Caucasian to hold a coconut which he intends to break with his bare hands.

Uncle: Now you hold the coconut. Like this..
Dude: OKOK.
Uncle: you then throw the coconut to me! (uncle walks away)
Dude: ok..
Uncle: Don’t throw it to my face, you hold it like that.. ok?
Dude: ok..
Uncle: Ladies and Gentlemen, this is my product, very good for sores etc etc
Dude: (Hold coconut while listening and ready to throw)
Uncle: (goes back to the white dude) ok don’t throw it to my face!
Dude: okay..

Uncle: Ladies and Gentlemen, with my product you can blablablaa!!
The uncle kept on talking and talking and promoting his product until we got bored and left. The poor Caucasian was left standing there with a coconut with his hand. Bet he hates Malaysia now.

Fortune Teller.

Chicken Rice Balls! w00t!

You can sing karaoke in the open here.

You can even perform on stage!

DJ Anatta @ Club Pure, Melaka 11 March 2006

DJ Anatta was hired to spin at Club Pure @ Melaka. So Cris, Florence and I decided to accompany her. We were given a free room at Aldy Hotel, 3 stars! 😀

Frankly, I am not familiar with the clubbing scene in Melaka. But recently I have been approached by a club in Melaka to judge a Melbourne Shuffle competition (which will be held @ Station 3 @ Melaka, 24 and 31 March 2006, more details soon!) for them. Hence, it would be interesting to see how the scene is like beforehand.

DJ Ashvin of Club Pure picked us up from our hotel. The club is located somewhere around Melaka’s business district centre.
As we were brought to the club, my first impression was that the club is made from adjoining few shop house together. Well, in fact, it was a corner lot with brilliant interior and design!


The street where the club is located is theme as the mini-Bangsar of Melaka. There are other clubs and pubs there as well.

Club Pure is made up of 2 rooms, 1st room being the R&B room on the ground floor and the other room is for dance music, which is on the first floor. The R&B floor was packed to the max. Pack as a can of sardines I would say.

But the other room was pretty deserted, probably because dance music hasn’t really picked up in Melaka. We were given two buckets of beer while waiting for DJ Anatta to finish. Cris and I went on a photography spree. I heard Cris took about 1 gig of photos O_O

Florence & DJ Anatta

Men’s toilet – a small strip of one way mirror to see whether any guys are hitting on your girlfriend.

There are two weird things in Club Pure. The first is that male patrons cannot wear caps. I had this bouncer poking my waist and thereafter grabbed my cap from my head. I stared at him in disbelief and immediately grabbed my cap from him. He then pointed his head and said, “No Caps”. I was told that the reason behind it is that caps obstruct the view of CCTVs in the club. So there I was, clubbing with a head of flatten hair. I felt like a bloody schoolboy.

As for the second weird thing, I would have to start by explaining how the dance room is like in Pure Club. The DJ console is built on an elevated stage, which overlooks a small cemented dance floor. And on that dance floor, there were couple of young shufflers. Yes, the Melbourne Shuffle has invaded Melaka! I even saw someone wearing phat pants there too “=_=

While the young shufflers were tearing the dance floor with DJ Anatta’s progressive house and breakbeats, a group of kids came. Immediately thereafter, the kids were break dancing….


Those Bboys were doing their helicopter shits and flips.

It was culture shock I tell you.

Of course, many thanks to our beloved DJ Anatta, whose music can influence clubbers to break dance to her progressive house and breakbeats. Looks like the crowd loved her music 😀

Immediately at 230AM, the music ended and lights were turned on. Club Pure closes half an hour earlier than clubs in Kuala Lumpur.
We met DJ Ashvin, DJ Raymond and DJ Alex for supper thereafter. They brought us to Hajjah Mona Asam Pedas @ Taman Kota Laksamana. Each of us had a place of Assam Pari (Sour Stringray). It was bloody excellent. My mouth waters as I type this man!

Gamarjobat – A shut up comedy from Japan @ Actor’s Studio, Bangsar Shopping Centre

3rd March – 19th March 2006
RM52 – RM92
Tuesday ~ Thursday 8PM, Friday 9PM, Saturday 3PM, 9PM Sunday 3PM, 8PM.

Gamarjobat is a silent comedy by 2 Japanese men. Not a single comprehensible word was spoken during the entire show. The sound effect, the lightning and the costumes fueled the entire show. And..
It was FUNNY with capitals!

The sound effect and lighting were very precise. It was as if it was programmed.

The show was divided into 2 parts, the first part being a slapstick-and-mime-like comedy and the second part is a silent play about a boxer. They even pulled some audience to perform with them. Some of the participants on the stage were entertaining as well 😀 We laughed non stop.

There was one part they played Doraemon’s theme song and one of the duo was mimicking Doraemon. Everyone laughed out loud except for the 4 Caucasians sitting in front of us… HOW CAN THEY NOT KNOW DORAEMON????

The show ended with a standing ovation. Yes, it was that good.

DJ Anatta & I – the Gamarjobats.

Catch DJ Anatta in action @ Club Pure, Melaka 11 March 2005! 😀

New Years Eve 2005

Most of my friends decided to have a quiet new year this year. But I wanted to see fireworks hence I took the risk of being stuck in a jam and headed straight to KLCC.

But it only took me 10 minutes to reach KL. I parked my car in my office and walked towards KLCC. The roads weren’t jam at all. I guess it’s because of the heavy rain prior to the event.

There was some sort of free rave sponsored by Celcom, a telephone service provider. International DJs, Filterheadz and Above and Beyond were spinning.

Backstage. KLCC park is behind the wall. Look at the amount of people!

Since the rave was free, all sort of people ranging from tudong clad girls to foreigners attended the rave. Some were standing on the dance floor like they’re watching a show but some understood the whole concept of rave, hence they danced.

DJ Blink was already spinning when I arrived. The crowd seems responsive. But one of the Filterheadz boys commented that the crowd was a little bit cold. Quite true, I could only see the front row and the middle row of the crowd dancing to the music.

DJ Blink in the house!

However, as soon as Filterheadz took over, the crowd started dancing. They started off with some house and moved to techno. Filterheadz were great!

Filterheadz’s gadgets

17 Seconds before 2006!

As soon as the clock hit 12AM, fire works sprung out from the bushes. The first few blasts were great but soon the remaining fireworks were covered by the thick smoke. At last, fireworks!!

The crowd celebrating year 2006


Above and Beyond took over an hour later. The crowd were responding well. In response to that, the organizers threw loads of glow sticks to the crowd.

The rave ended at 2AM.

Unfortunately, 2006 doesn’t seem to be significant to me. It’s just another year. Despite the negativity, I hope for a good year!

Happy New Year everyone!
