Proton just unveil their latest car which is base on Proton Satria Neo... The car is call 'Satria Neo R3 Lotus Racing'... So there is nothing surprising to see the car drape in Lotus Racing F1 car's livery... As for the bodykit, I'm very sure that most of you have seen it because this is the standard R3 bodykit used previously on their 'Satria Neo R3' which is the top of the range Satria Neo until this car comes along... Only 25 of these will be produce...


I really like R3 bodykit... Not over the edge while still manage to looks menacing at the same time... Kudos to R3 bodykit designer...


Now to the exciting part!!! This car uses the current Campro CPS engine and its pushing out 145bhp at 7000rpm... As for the torque, it is rated at 168Nm at 5000rpm... The engine is producing 25bhp more compare to standard Campro CPS engine while the torque is up 18Nm...


This car comes equipped with R3 ECU, R3 camshafts plus adjustable alloy cam pulley, R3 underdrive pulleys, R3 titanium header, R3 tuned exhaust system and R3 carbon fiber air box with K&N air filter.


This car also comes with R3 carbon fiber bonnet, front 4-pot AP Racing calipers and Ohlins fully adjustable coilovers tuned by R3!!! Awesome stuff I must say...


R3 carbon fiber air box...


Front 4-pot AP Racing caliper with slotted and vented disc brake...


Ohlins fully adjustable coilovers...




Nice car... Really nice car but the best part of the car is actually the asking price... Give it a guess and I'm very sure most of you will NOT get it right... RM115,000 for this car!!! Is a very nice car but the asking price is a bit steep in my opinion...

Last year we participated in Earth Hour and we are going to do the same for this year... The day is tomorrow which is 27th of March 2010 at 8.30pm till 9.30pm... So I urge all of you out there to do the same for mother Earth... She is our responsibility and it is our job to look after her... She's been behaving really strange and I can sense that she is really angry this time... Just look at all the earthquakes happening around us!!! Remember to treat her well and I'm very sure that she will do that in return...



Remember, mother Earth does not belongs to me... She belongs to all of us... So please do your part!!!

My poor Pug... Mileage only around 20k ++ and she need to succumb to this!!!

This happened to my darling yesterday when she went for lunch with her colleagues... At first they suspected that the poor Pug got a dead battery and ask a nearby workshop to clarify it... The foreman opened the bonnet and said that the battery was dead but they dare not jump start the car because of all the electronics and told us to tow the car to the service center...

Once there, the technician took a device and connected it to the battery... 'BAD CELL... REPLACE'... So we can confirmed that the battery was indeed DEAD!!! The mileage is only 20k++ and the battery is dead!!! OMG!!!

A word of caution to all 308 owner be it VTi or Turbo... Please ask the technician to check on your battery once your mileage reach around 20k... I was told that after 20k, the warranty does not cover the battery and the battery itself cost more than RM700++!!! So better be safe than sorry... Besides the battery, remember to take care of your tire also because it cost around RM750 per piece!!!

Ever heard of 'Porno Rock'??? Me neither... This is my first time in life being expose to this term... Gothic rock, punk rock, shock rock, industrial rock and whatever rock you can find and I'm sure I've heard of it... But not porno rock... But some site quoted them as industrial rocker so I don't really know what to label them now...

'Genitorturers'... Fronted by Gen which is the vocals and the brainchild behind this band... Evil 'D' David Vincent as bassist and Bizz as guitarist... I highly recommend this band to those that like heavy metal, industrial rock and etc... As long as you like rock with really fast pace, I'm sure that you will enjoy listening to this album...

From this album, I can sense some influence from 'Marilyn Manson' and also 'Alice Cooper'... Don't know whether is this the reason that I found their music nice??? Nevertheless, I'm really enjoying this album!!! A good thumbs up form me...


CAUTION!!! Some EXPLICIT images below!!!

What's more satisfying than having ice cream in cold weather??? My answer is nothing... Nothing beats eating ice cream in extreme weather... You know in Malaysia it is impossible to eat ice cream in icy cold weather (unless you eat ice cream while sitting in front of the air-con blasting away... and not forgetting one must be sitting naked in front of the air-con) so it is a norm for both of us to search for ice cream whenever we go traveling in cold places... Ma ma mia!!! That's just heavenly...

I wanted to update this post for a very long time but don't know why I just keep on delaying this post... Been to this restaurant a few months back... So by right I should update this a few months earlier!!! Restaurant SY is one of the newest restaurant in Batu Pahat and I've heard some good review on one of their specialty and decided to check it out... Their specialty is call 'Over Bridge Pork Ribs'...


I don't know what to call this... But I didn't try it out because I hate starchy food!!! But according to my darling, this dish is not bad at all...




One of their specialty and the main reason I'm there... 'Over Bridge Pork Ribs'... The gravy is kinda special... Some curry and buttery taste in it and not forgetting a bit spicy... I find it OK only... Nothing to shout about... So actually I'm a bit disappointed in it... But the meat itself is nicely cook and the presentation of the food is worth mentioning...





One of their specialty as well... Tofu with some mince vege in it... Quite nice...


Very normal fried chicken...



Fried brinjal top with pork floss... I like this dish the most...

'Seoraksan' also known as 'Mount Sorak' is the highest mountain in the 'Taebaek' mountain range in 'Gangwon' province in South Korea... It is located in a national park near the city of 'Sokcho'... After the 'Hallasan' volcano oo Jeju Island (we miss this because of the weather) and 'Jirisan' in the south, 'Mount Sorak' is the third highest mountain in South Korea... The 'Taebaek' mountain chain is often considered the backbone of Korean Peninsular...


I've heard a lot of people saying that 'Mount Sorak' is a very good place for landscape photography and I'm really excited and really looking forward to visit 'Mount Sorak'... Now here comes my problem... We reach 'Mount Sorak' really late that day... I guess we are the only tourists going into the national park while all the other tourists are on their way out... I didn't know that we need to walk all the way in and it took us almost close to 15-20 minutes just to reach the main entrance and to make matter worse, I didn't bring my flash gun along and it is getting dark real quick...



A massive bear statue that greet us once we reach the main entrance...





Walk further in and you will be greeted by a giant statue... This statue is call the 'Bronze Buddha of Sinheungsa'... As we are really rushing for time, we didn't stay too long... Just snap a few photos and continue to walk to our next destination...






Our last destination of the day... A temple... But I don't really know what temple it is...


We really miss out a lot of other attractions in 'Mount Sorak'!!! But we didn't blame anyone... Guess is just our luck...

Today marks a very special day in my calender... 18th of March 2007 is the day both me and my darling got engaged... So obviously we went out for dinner tonight... Time flies!!! In a blink of an eye, we are actually engage for 3 years...

Nothing fancy just a simple dinner and we decided to go somewhere near and less traffic... Desa Parkcity becomes the obvious venue... We walked around and decided to have Japanese food... We eaten Rakuzen before but not in Desa Parkcity...




My darling's udon set...



California roll that comes together with my darling's udon set... The set cost RM38... I find the price acceptable because the portion is quite big...


This is mine... Unagi set... RM38 also...



Since both of us are super duper full, we didn't order any dessert...


HAPPY 3 YEARS ANNIVERSARY TO BOTH OF US!!!
