"Miscommunication"

This funny conversation happened on last Saturday between me, the dishwasher (a Sabahan) & the female waitress (a Filipino). 


Waitress: "Is Sabah a nice place?"


Me: "Yes, of course! We are the most beautiful state of whole Malaysia."


Waitress: "Really? What do you have in Sabah?"


Dishwasher: "Many. We have coffee, tea, cocoa, and many more!"


Waitress: "Wow, you have beach there?"


Dishwasher: "Of course lah! Everywhere have bitch bah!"


Me: "*laughing* Ya, and motherfuckers too!"


Dishwasher: "What else you want to know?"


Waitress: "*continue on setting up table without saying a word*"

"Young, alone, hungry & broke!"

I have been being in a dilemma mode for quite a long time now, since I was here in Singapore. So many things happened & happening and I couldn't make up a clear mind about my future here. 

I'd always wanted to have my practical in Singapore. Once I get it, I was in ecstasy. Dream came true for me! But when I was first here, I realised that Singapore is not the place where my heart should be. Home is the place. I miss home a lot!! 

And before this, I planned to continue on working in this restaurant where I am having my practical at now, even though I don't really enjoy the cooking style of this cuisine, but for experience. Problem that is, the business in this restaurant is so unstable. The business dropped so drastically & most of the time, this restaurant is empty. Only once in awhile the restaurant will be full house. I don't want to work in a empty restaurant for the next 2 years.

Have to use these 3 months to think of what I should do next.

One thing I hate...

I become lazy when I didn't blog for quite some time. 

But whatever it is, I am so fine here in Singapore. Even though the life in Singapore is hard & stressful, but I've adapted the environment & the culture here.

I just can't wait to go home...

"Something should be proud of"


I got a job in Singapore. And I'm leaving on NEXT THURSDAY!!! I have to say, I'm totally not ready yet. It happens too sudden. I'm still in shock now & kind of stress-out. I have to do this, do that, meet all my friends, inform them, and blah blah blah in these 7 days time. Will be crazy!


This job is not my choice. I am randomly place. I sent my resume to Singapore & this company wants my hands to help. Although this is not my choice or my favourite cuisine to cook, but I appreciate it much! I will work my heart & learn whatever I can.


Time has never really was my enemy since I finished my studies but now, it is my biggest & worst enemy!! I'm kind of freaking out now like I don't know what to do. It just happens too sudden!!


I got so many thing to do in so little time!

"How do you handle adults that acted like a kid, mentally & emotionally?"

Last month, when I was having a dinner, someone I know came to me. An adult.




Mr. A: Eh...a chef, huh? When you want to cook steak for me ah?


Me: Steak? I never cook steak, not even for myself nor my family.


Mr. A: Then you cook lah, I eat!


Me: I try *walk away while giving him a WTF look*




Few days later, his wife calls




Mrs. A: Eh...that day did my A ask you to cook him steak?


Me: Yes, why?

Mrs. A: He don't like how you answer him!



Me: Okay...*so what?*


Woman: You don't need to be so disrespectful! You think you are a chef now & you can be so cocky? My A is mad & he don't like it!


Me: Really? Oh well, tell your man to FUCK OFF & FUCK YOU TOO!!!!! 




That is how I handle adults that acted like a kid, mentally & emotionally!

"On the road"

I drove on the open road for the first time on today. I have to say, IT'S KIND OF SCARY!!!! But just now was my first time driving on an open road, and I was doing great. Got a lot of praising from my motherfucker tutor. But as I said, just now was my first time on the road, the journey is not so damn perfect. My engine died twice & still haven't really get used with the clutch yet. 

I was having a good start at the first 15 minutes but when I was in the city, I was started to get a little bit panicky with all the cars around me. I was afraid of bumping their cars. But after for few minutes, driving gone smooth & better again. 

Other than going out for driving lesson for an hour just now, my aunt & cousin sister came to my house too. Remember the one I told you that from US, oh well, today was fun with them. Me & my cousin sister finally breaking the ice on today. We talked a lot, not much but fuck yeah, STILL A LOT!! And tomorrow they are coming for dinner. Another fun night for all of us.

I saw another nice face girl around noon just now
& that's all I'm going to tell!

"Just for your request, I blog!"

So I finally went to the driving lesson on today. I have done all the road's laws, computer test & blah blah blah. But I drag it for almost a month later, which is today, until I started the driving lesson. Reason? Simple. All because of the RM. 


But choosing on today was right!! I got to met a cute girl!!! Yes!!!! Her name, Alisa, I'll remember that name. But the shit thing is, today will be her last day of driving lesson. So, I met her for the first time & the last time on the same day. Fuck it!


And, yes, driving might looks fun, it is fun anyway, but damn it, it's hard! You must have the most gentle feet to drive. You just cannot push the pedal all the way down when you are starting your car or else, it will jerk! Same goes with the brake. But then, my bad & hard arse motherfucker tutor gave some simple advices about driving to me.




Tutor: Um...even drive before?


Me: No!


Tutor: Not even once?


Me: No!


Tutor: Holy shit! We got a lot to learn & remember then!


Me: Oh...okay.


Tutor: Okay, this is how it's works lah. See the gears, clutch, foot's brake, hand's brake, throttle pedal, wiper, signals, horn, steering, rear mirror, side mirrors & everything lah, you need to control all of these. It seems a little bit too complicated & hard but let's make it this way. You are a chef, you cook. When you cooking, you are not only focusing on one thing only, right? You need to do seasoning, trimming, cooking, preparing the sauce, plating & you know what lah. So it is the same with driving. You cannot only focusing on one thing only. You cannot just focusing driving only, you need to focus the road, the peoples around, the cars. 


Me: Okay...right!


Tutor: Okay, let's practise.

*Doing all the simple things such as signalling, adjusting seat & blah blah blah*



Tutor: You seem like you know all the thing in the car! Then let's get moving & let you understand what driving is all about. You listen to me & drive, okay? You drive straight, then make corner to the left. We circle around this place.


*So. real driving starts. After 10 minutes later or around 20 rounds later*


Tutor: Did you lied to me ah?


Me: What?


Tutor: You told me you never drive.


Me: Yea!


Tutor: You drive like you are a license "P" holder.


Me: *weeeeee!!!!!* Um...thank you! *still weeeeee-ing!!!!!*


Tutor: Okay, park there. Tomorrow lesson, we are on the road. I mean the road. 


Me: What the fuck?!?!?!


Tutor: Oh yea, you prefer you driving from your house to the institute or from institute to your home?


Me: Can I not drive on the road?


Tutor: Um...no choice. The better you get off on the road, the better get used to it, get more comfortable & confident of driving. 


Me: Fine! *whatever!!*




I got to admit I love the way he compares driving with cooking, which is true! And by the way, my house is at Taman Mesra & the institute is at somewhere deep inside Bukit Padang. And I will be driving on Lintas road & Tun Fuad road. My lesson is around 10am. So if you are somewhere near, don't fucking get out for your house. I don't want to kill you!


So tomorrow is the real driving. If my car crash & burn, and if I die, tell Alisa


"NICE TO MEET YOU & YOU ARE CUTE!!!!"

It's been awhile now...

...since my last post. Because of I'm have nothing to do at all & basically sitting at home all day, sleep at 1am, waking up on 11am, eat, watch Gordon Ramsay's TV shows on Youtube, go to pee pee & poo poo, bite my cousin sister & my mother then sleep & repeat everything again on the next day. I don't have anything excited to post about.


But lucky me, I still got sometime to get out of this house & do something useful. On...


29th - 31st of May: I went to Sandakan.


3rd of June: My aunt & her daughter cum my cousin sister come back to Malaysia from US after they last home 6 years ago. 


7th of June: My birthday. No celebration, I don't celebrate being one year older. But my best friend suggests me that I should celebrate it on next year, when I turn 21, as a celebrate of me being a man. Oh well, we'll see what happens.


12th of June: I went to the Gaya Street Sunday Market. First time after 2 years. Even though I studied at Gaya Street, being there almost everyday per week, I visited the Sunday Market less than 10 times. How shameful I am to be a KK-ian! Nothing much, bought some shallots, Kuih Cincin is a must & a sunglasses. 


I seriously need to talk more to my cousin sister or else I have to wait forever again until I see her again next time after she's going back her real home. But it has been awhile & we are completely not knowing what to talk about. I'll try my best!!

Remember...

True friend will never leave you alone. 
True friend will always be there for you. 

When the whole world gave up on you, your true friend will fight for you. 

When you gave up on yourself, your true friend will help you to stand up. 

When you are dying on yourself, your true friend will go through Hell to pull you back up.

When you lost your mind, your true friend will guide you through.

When the darkness is everywhere, your true friend will bring you a candle.

When there is hope, your true friend willing to die for you just for you to live.

When 

That is what true friend means.
That is what true friend for.


I'm lucky to found mine! Have you?

"Life of a MALE Praying Mantis!"

You know what, being a male Praying Mantis is so god-damn pathetic! When they finished mating with the female Praying Mantis, the female will snaps the male's head off his fucking body & start EATING it!! Not only the head, but the whole fucking body!!

You know why? Because after mating, the female Mantis will stay in a place & will not come out until she lays her eggs. So, she is some sort of hibernating. To survive the hibernating, the female need to have a lot of PROTEIN in her body. And, male Mantis is FULL of protein. 

So, this come to the female mantis mind, "This dickhead got whole packs of protein in his body, why don't I eat him so that, I don't need to look for my food for my hibernation!". 

So, right after the male pull his dick out, and the female will turn around & break the male head with her mighty hand(??). And no waste of time, the female start eating the male's head and, the whole fucking body. When job done, female hibernating & lay her eggs. 

Conclusion: 

Every Praying Mantis born into a broken family!!!

"Here comes my 101th post: Explanation!"

What should I explains? About yesterday.


Here's the story. Me & my college classmates were having a picnic party at the beach & might be our last gathering before we off to our job training. I won't say that was a farewell party but it was more like a party where we all celebrate for our success in the college & the fact soon we are in the real world.


During the party, these two girls (yes, you know who you are) talked to me &  asked me to do something. Won't tell much what it was, and for what, but it is actually a "hi" & 'bye" issue. Don't get confuse, it is just a simple greeting & a simple farewell. 


Here is my say to both of you. I know that both of you wishing & hoping to see & hear what you wanted from me. I've tried too. I really do tried, so hard! My hope & wish are just like yours but I can't do it. Not I am mean or scared but I just can't. I am too tired of trying & I am too tired of doing every of these alone. I am the only one who is trying since not long after the start of this. I already had enough of the pains from this. I am just an ordinary human with my own weakness & breaking point. 


And more than that, I have my own reasons behind everything I am doing. If both of you ever wear my shoes, you will understand. But because I am wearing a size-12 shoes, you will never fit in. Therefore, you will never understand the difficulties of finding a shoes as big as that. 


I hope you can understand what I mean. If that is something how it looks like, just let it be. We just hope one day, the sky will be clear. But for now, I still trying to get the cloud off the sun. 


I'm not mean. Just tired. 


And I love you both!!!

And as I mentioned on my post title, this is my 100th post in this blog. I have been blogging since February 2009 & this is my only 100th. Very slow for a blogger like me. 

Before this, I don't like blogging. I started up a blog just because Blogger is one of the hottest stuff during that time. Don't wanted to be left-out, I've created one for myself. And I have none one idea how this works & what to blog. I abandoned my blog for a loooooooooooong time before I get the idea & love blogging.

My 100th post should not be this post. It should be on my previous few posts. But I deleted some of my post in this blog for some good & bad reasons. 

But whatever it is,

Happy 100th post to me!

"Stressful Thursday!"

Things that I am so stressful about:


1. Last exam paper on tomorrow.
2. Preparation for my class picnic.
3. My best friend's boyfriend is breaking up with her.


Dude, listen here, GO FUCK YOURSELF UP!!! The worst reason of breaking up is religious difference. If you love you religion so much & can't accept her religion, why you want to get with her at the first place? You happy to see her cry for you? What kind of man are you? 


And your parents should get some fucking lives too other than controlling your each step. Your mother fucking against you from seeing her & you father fucking forbid you from being with her. Why don't you just fuck your mum & blow you dad out? That's some fucking lives for 3 of you!


We never meet before & I know I am wrong insulting you here but come on, can't your nuts think of something more wiser than just fucking say, "I love you but I can't be with you because of my parents & religion". Your mama still breastfeed you? Or your religion give you RM500 Billions & telling you not to be with this girl because she is opposite of your belief? 


You fucking dickhead is a no-brainer!

"And I missed-out something from my previous post"

Continuation....


And of course by shooting down Osama bin Laden, the leader of al-Qaeda, will not  stops the terrorism & al-Qaeda completely. His death might will make the organisation even stronger & more terrorising. But at least for now, the mastermind is gone & at least some justice for the family who lost their family through the 9/11 & war. 


There is no clear winner in a war

"Osama bin Laden is dead!!"

The hottest topic for these few days must be "The Royal Wedding of Prince William & Kate Middleton". I was so annoyed by this wedding just because EVERYBODY is talking & watching about it. Like, so what if they are getting married? YOU ARE NOT ONE OF THEIR GUEST OF HONOUR!!! And all the girls like, "Oh...my prince of charm getting married on tomorrow//today/in hours/now!!". Come on, get a boyfriend!!

But whatever it is, I still want to say my congratulation to the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge.


And move on to yesterday, the world just getting more awesome with the news of "The Death of Osama bin Laden". Who is he? 

I remember when I was 10-year-old, exactly when 9/11 happened. I went to school the day after 9/11 happened. One of friend came to me & said to me did I watch the news about the twin tower on yesterday. I said yes, and he replied me, "Good! Did you see how our hero did? Osama bin Laden is our hero. My hero. And the hero of all Muslim. The real fighter of Islam!!". 

Is he mad??

For my understanding during that time (FYI, I learned Islamic Studies in my primary school with one of my ustaz), Islam never taught anyone to sacrafice themselves to kill anyone. And for this case, the peoples inside the twin tower were all innocent civilian. Isn't that a much more bigger sin?? 

Okay...I don't want to say more about this because I am not a Muslim & what I have said above might be wrong....for some. And then, I logged in into my Facebook just now & I saw this shared link on my Newsfeed. 

So, it is a confirm for Osama's death & HE IS NOT A MUSLIM WARRIOR!!

Some said America is just too busybody for disturbing someone's politic & organisation. Some said America is trying to conquer the Middle East. Some said America is trying to the be superior of the world & whatsoever. 

Yes, every of these might be true. You know, human needs & wants never has limit but try to think this way, if America never fight with the Taliban, never fight with al-Qaeda, will our world still as peaceful as we have now?

For me, the answer is a BIG FUCKING NO!! Terrorism & death will be everywhere. Our land will be rob (even we are now by some of the high .......), everyone will be force to be terrorist, kidnapping, killing & blah blah blah. 

So, be grateful for what we have now & pray for the one who lost their family from this war. Bless everyone & make love, not war!

"Interesting fact"

Can you differentiate & explain what is the difference between a cook & a chef? Yes? No? Yes? Surrender? I have the answer.


Cook: A person that has no proper training or attend to any culinary school. They have no or very limited skill, experience or knowledge about kitchen. They can be anyone including out from the street or anywhere you can think of. 


Chef: A proper trained & educated cook in a proper culinary school. Have basic skill, experience & knowledge about how the kitchen works & knows how to manage the kitchen. They must get out of a proper culinary school to earn the title of chef.


Bottom line is:
A chef is a cook but a cook is not a chef

"Driving next!"

I went to take my Driving Computer Test on yesterday. The test is all about the laws on the road, road signs & also some basic common sense of driving. I passed my test. Passing mark is 42/50 & I get 46/50. Not a very awesome result but at least I get a blue mark (pass) on my result paper. 

After passing the test, today, I proceed on to the next & 2nd class which is Workshop or best known as "Bengkel". Compare this with the KPP (first) class, this is much much much much more boring! It basically repeat most of the lesson from the first class & some very very very basic things like how to start a car, adjusting your seat, how to fasten your seatbelt & so on. 

Started the class at 9.30am, finished at 11.40am. And my tutor only come & pick me up at 12.40pm. Well, I don't blame him. He's a busy man & I can wait. 

So, on the way home, we have some chat. Well, bonding I should say. And this is what we talked about just now.




Tutor: So, what will you usually do during this time if you are not going out?

Me: Um...nothing. Just sit around, doing nothing.

Tutor: Hahaha. Must have something kan? Watching TV, exercise, playing computer?

Me: Oh, yea. Playing Facebook.

Tutor: Facebook again kah

Me: Hmm?

Tutor: I can't understand about Facebook lah. Try to explain to me why you like Facebook? 

Me: Um...because it help me to find back my long lost friends you know? And it help me to connect with my friends, keep updating on each other. 

Tutor: Yes, I know but why? You cannot go out & meet them face to face kah

Me: Um...

Tutor: Kids nowadays ah always sit in front of the computer wasting time doing all the rubbish things in the computer. If you just want to talk to your long lost friends or finding informations for your education, it's okay lah. This ah sit in front of the computer 24/7 doing nothing but Facebook & games. All the kids become nerds & geeks bah.

Me: *speechless*

Tutor: Doing everything through Facebook. Finding girlfriend pun from Facebook. Chat with girlfriend through Facebook, dating through Facebook. Then if you want to screw her? Screw the CPU kah?

Me: *holy-shit!!!!!!*

Tutor: Come on lah! Go face-to-face & talk to her, say you love her, and if can, say this to her, "Hey, I want to screw you!" Kan easier?

Me: *die*



My tutor is a bad-ass motherfucker!

"Looooooong Satur-Day!"

I went to Api-Api Driving Centre (ADC), located at quite damn far from the city, for my very first class, Kurikulum Pendidikan Pemanduan (KPP), of getting a legal driving license. 


Finally, after years of waiting, I got the chance to learn to drive. But I don't really in the mood of having my driving license now. I could be more excited when I was younger but now, I am just not in the mood. 


But because I will going for my job training soon, I don't expects I will have any-time to learn it, or I might not be in Sabah during that time. So while I still have time now, just do it!


My tutor, a friend of my mum, came to my house & picked me up around 8am. Went to this far away institute to register myself. Done everything & went into a 6-hour class about Road Laws. The class was fun but however it is, still somewhat boring.


What do I mean fun is the tutors who lecturing. There were 2 tutors lecturing me & also some others. The first tutor, a story-teller. He basically tell us almost everything that has nothing to do with driving. And he has a super-duper thick Sabah-accent. 


Second tutor, he is a very fun person. His voice is so manly & sexy (this might sounds gay but he really does!). I like his style of lecturing. He did not follow the book at all. He has his own way & ideas of lecturing. He will simplify & explain the long part from the book & making it into a short & easy to remember example. And he shared the ways of how to answer the computer test. After his class, I never been this confident of going for an exam before. Hahahaha.


But I will take the test sometime around next week after I have gone through all of the 500 questions that given to me as a reference. I just want to get every test done before I'm facing my college final exam. Wish me luck!




And I saw two cute girls today!

"Let me make it clear"

Some times ago, a friend of mine asked me, am I disturbed or am I depressed because I seems like very fiery & couldn't hold my anger back lately. 


Yes, I am. I am stressed by the assignments, studies, relationship between peoples, my kitchen practicals & also the procedures of my job training.


I think my fiery & hot temper will only show-out in the kitchen more than in everyday life. In everyday life, I can play with you, make fun with you, be crazy with you but in the kitchen, never fucking try any of these with me. 


As I said last time, I am a very serious & strict chef in the kitchen. When my chef's coat buttoned, apron on & my chef's knife out, it is time to get serious. 


My rule, I will not act like a mad dog, barking around if you did not done anything wrong. Each person deserves 3 chances of asking, answering, & listening to me. I will not tell you anything for the fourth time. Or you can try, but you should be ready to get shout.


This happens in every kitchen that you will get into. Kitchen is a place where the environment is very intense, busy, stressing, hot & serious. It is not a playground. If you want to act like a child, get the fuck out of the kitchen. Never try be a chef.


What happen in the kitchen all of you facing now is just like 5% from the reality. Never hate me for treating all of you like that. This is part of the chef's game. If you can't take the pressure, never get into a kitchen. If you are too depressing, get out, go to a corner where no one sees you, cry, wipe your tears, calm down & get back into the kitchen. 


You think Hell's Kitchen is just a TV show? You think Gordon Ramsay is an actor? Think again! Watch that show before you making up your mind of being a quality chef. 


If you think that is too much for you, never even try to think of being a Kitchen Helper!


Welcome to the Chef's World, my friends!

Catering Management (Kiong Kee Restaurant)

Introduction

Kedai Kopi Kiong Kee is a typical Chinese kopitiam that you'll find all over Sabah. It serves many traditional Chinese hawker foods. These dishes include the common noodle with soup, and the ever popular Sabahan favourite the Kon-Lau noodle (dry noodle). Besides these, Curry laksa, pan mee, yee mee, iwat mee, and porridge are also available at Kiong Kee Kopitiam. The pricing here is reasonable starting at RM 4, while the meat and noodle portions are very generous compared with other noodle shops.
