A850, A550 and A500...


Wow... Sony is really moving really really fast this time... 5 new cameras ranging from low to high end in just a few months period!!!

The A850 is a full frame camera with 24.6 megapixel... Currently, the A900 and A850 is still the 'king' in the megapixel war... The only difference between A900 and A850 are slower continous shooting and the viewfinder of A850 is only 98% against A900 100%...

As for the A550, it comes with 14.2 megapixel while the A500 comes with 12.3 megapixel... Not bad but I don't quite like the design of the new A550 and A500... I prefer the looks of A700 more... More rugged in my opinion...

Popeyes fried chicken set comes with either 2 or 3 pieces of chicken, 1 coleslaw, 1 mash potatoes, 1 bread like thing that Popeyes refer as 'biscuit' and finally with a cup of soft drink... RM9.90 for a 2 pieces chicken set and RM11.90 for a 3 pieces chicken set... There are 2 flavours available... Mild and Spicy... My recommendation is go for the spicy... Don't even try the mild version... Is not worth it... Is just tasteless... I really like the spicy version... Spicier than KFC's Hot and Spicy...


Popeyes chicken is less oily compare to KFC... In fact I can say that it is oil-less... Good news to health conscious freak... If you let me choose between Popeyes and KFC, my vote would go for Popeyes...


Notice the fork cum spoon thingy??? KFC should follow Popeyes and made some of this fork cum spoon thing... Is a lot easier eating coleslaw using this!!!


The coleslaw is top notch... So much better compare to KFC... As for the mash potatoes, is all down to personal preference... I like it a lot whereas my darling and other relatives just hated it...


Look at the take-away box... So much nicer compare to KFC...



Overall Rating - 3/5

Wow I almost can't recognize myself!!! I'm getting fatter and fatter... So finally, I decided to keep fit from now on... Actually I started my fitness regime almost 1 week ago... Nothing much just some normal rope skipping... I don't know why I just love skipping... If you let me choose between jogging and rope skipping, I will definitely choose the latter...

Rope skipping is a very good exercise... It can helps you to 'LOSE WEIGHT'!!! That's the most important part... Rope skipping is a very good calories burner... It is so effective in burning calories that an hour of skipping can burn up to 1000 calories... Besides that, it is proven that 45 minutes of hard running equals to 10 minutes of rope skipping... Can you imagine that...

Besides that, rope skipping is a very very cheap exercise... I got my skipping rope for a mere RM13.90... Other than that, you can virtually skip anywhere... You don't have to find a specific location for rope skipping... You can skip in your living room, dining room, bedroom, anywhere you can think of provided that the place is BIG enough!!!

I'm keeping my finger cross... Hopefully I can see some result from my new found exercise...

Just pick any tea that you like...


Notice anything wrong with the rice??? Actually there is nothing wrong with it... The only problem is the 'plate'... First time eating bah kut teh using plate... Call me old fashion but I prefer to eat it with a bowl and a pair of chopstick... The traditional way!!!


Dry bah kut teh... I've heard a lot of good review regarding this dry bah kut teh... But frankly speaking, I don't quite like it... But if you let me choose between the dry and the soup, I will definitely choose the dry one...


Soup bah kut teh... Only one word to describe it... 'HOPELESS'... I don't like the soup at all... It's tasteless... No herbal taste... Nothing!!!

Besides that, I still prefer 'teow chew' style soup over 'hokkien' style soup although I'm a 'hokkien'...




As for the vegetables, there is nothing to shout about...



Bah kut teh is really funny... No matter how good the taste of the soup is to person A does not mean that it is good for person B... There is no in between in my opinion... You either love it or hate it... Bah kut teh belongs to this category of food...

I know this shop is really really famous with all the newspaper cutting sticking on the wall, but the soup bah kut teh is not for me... I can still accept the dry bah kut teh but I just won't drive all the way there just to have it...

Is all down to individual preference for bah kut teh and this shop is definitely not for me... Weird isn't it...
