Preparing for another battle

So there she is, finally back from her studies and seemingly endless holiday
Here I am, yet to achieve anything worth a shouting about

She has always been the kind of girl that I would like to spend my time with
Smart, funny, active, organized, ambitious and independent
always a high achiever doing what best for herself

There is such a big contrast when I look back at myself
I believe in compatibility and it's always mutual
as you choose you are being chose
I don't see myself being the chosen

However, I'm unwilling to give up what's best for me
Even if the chances are slim, even if I know I may end up hurting
Even if the most probable answer would be
"Let's keep our friendship alive"
*update: and worse off then Let's keep our friendship alive, she told me she was married, FML



懂得礼让 也开始了解以前的我

我不想知道 你对他到底有多好
也不想知道 他对你多好
我只是想要 知道你到底过得好不好

我不想知道 他情人节得到什么礼物
也不想知道 你们亲密到什么程度

你别多心 我不多情

repeat chorus

Lauee Home Kitchen- Fine Home Dinning

And so you are invited to try my fins lol

Lauee is a fine home dinning restaurant situated nearby the roundabout heading to Penang Hill. It is a restaurant whereby the doors are only opened if you have made reservations, so in a way it is quiet private. So if you want to have a nice and peaceful dinner this is the right place to go.

The restaurant is decorated in a way that you feel like as if you’re eating at home. The whole place is air conditioned. Just as you enter the door, there is a living room where there is a sofa and a TV to watch TV. Then as you walk in, you will see a beautiful outdoor garden/ fish pond right in the middle of the house. Around this area is where you will find a few tables and chairs where you have your dinner. I think it can accommodate 4 big round tables. But there are rooms which I think you can also eat in.

The specialty here is their Shark fin Soup (or Shark’s fin soup). They do not use those imitation sharks’s fin but they ONLY serve you genuine shark’s fin. Quote from Wikipedia, Shark fin soup (or shark's fin soup) is a delicacy that has been a popular item of Chinese Cuisine since the Ming Dynasty, usually served at special occasions such as weddings and banquets. As a luxury item, the dish is also considered a symbol of wealth and prestige in Chinese culture”

A bowl or rather a “claypot” of the soup cost RM 50 but it is huge which 2 people can actually share. Soup is darker than the ones you eat outside, and it is filled with a lot of chinese mushrooms, crab meat and some egg. And in it you will find a huge chunk of shark’s fin in it. Served with a plate of cilantro leaves, some chili sambal and vinegar, it is up to you to put these in your soup however way you want it. For me, I poured in A LOT of vinegar to it (love it) and Ed took his favourite Cilantro leaves. This was perhaps my first time ever eating real shark’s fin. It tasted good. But I would not take this in a few years time as I felt a bit guilty knowing that the sharks were killed for this.

Shark’s fin soup

After having the soup, the other dishes slowly arrived. We had ordered Gooselegs, Huge Crab Claws with Tanghoon noodles, Garlic Chicken, Tom Yam Prawn Soup, Fried Crab Rice and Thai Jelly.


I missed out to try this dish (busy with my tom yam soup) but according to Ed he said it had sweet tau yu taste to it. Looked a lot like chicken feet way of cooking.


Garlic Chicken

I liked the way this dish tasted. Chicken was chopped to small bite size pieces, crispy and soaked slightly in a sweet, sour gravy. It had also a bit of chinese wine taste to it. Then topped with fresh slices of garlic and some cilantro leaves…’s so perfectly good.

Garlic Chicken

Tom Yam Prawns Soup

Following my own tasting pleasure, it was thumbs up all the way for this Tom Yam Soup. I loved it so much. It had that sour taste to it. And it was not so spicy. Really loved this. This is how I like my Tom Yam soup to be!

Huge Crab Claws with Tanghoon noodles

This is the Tanghoon dish which had huge crab claws underneath it. It was really good. After eating up all the Tanghoon and Crab Claws, I saw really a lot of garlic cloves right at the bottom. But the funny thing, the dish did not have any strong garlic taste.

Huge Crab Claws with Tanghoon noodles

Fried Crab Rice

Missed out to take a picture of this. The Fried Rice was good and absolutely tasty. It had a lot of crab meat in it too. Probably the best fried rice ever.

Thai Jelly

Jelly was white but not almond taste. Topped with some longans, it reminds me of those longan jellys I buy from Soya Bean shops. Nice and refreshing.

Movies, they always give people what they hope for eh?

Girls will always wish that the playboy they meet will turn into someone faithful, playboy will always wish that they could just meet that special someone so they could put more faith into love, and all the other losers will hope that some day they would get lucky and score once in a while.

I've just watched Ghosts of Girlfriends Past with a friend and it happen that I was in a similar situation, though the setting and story line is a lot different yet the characters are all there, the alpha male, wingmen and preys. I just couldn't figure out why I'm always one of the wingman and not the one under the spot light. Do I really allow them to take the spotlight because I lack self confidence? Or deep down inside I know that I doesn't need or crave for those spotlight because I'm so confident that I'd meet someone that see my glow in the dark? Somehow that kind of person doesn't come as often as I wish, and funnily my glow ain't even strong enough even when I'm in the dark cinema.

What's more fuck up is that I shouldn't even feel this way! Din't I said I've already give up on this one? Now I'm here typing all this crap after a few pines of stout and a few glasses of JD? How suckier can this be? Like the tag line of the movie said, you can't always run from your past, I could try to act as if I din't care anymore, but I do somehow. I could let go, but deep down inside, I know I regret every single mistakes I've made, hate ever opportunity I missed, and mourn over everything that I couldn't get. Okay mourn could be too harsh but I couldn't figure of anything else more suitable.

Morden man in traditional business

Sometimes I really wonder, can I revolutionize the business or will the business drag me back to the caveman age. It's an answer still unanswered for the time being, but I've already start to feel my devolution. I used to complain a lot more when I first went back to the business, when I found out that all the stuff that I were automated when I work in KL are being done manually here. Stuff like checking the price history, the list price of some items etc etc. Now I'm using the manual approach as well. I don't want to succumb to the industrial norm, I used to reject the industrial norm, saying that if they are not willing to move on, I'm willing to take the lead and show them what I'm made off, but I'm only human after all I guess.

August 15, is the deadline I set for myself, I need my new product portfolio out, and I need to limit them on selling what I WANT TO SELL and not WHAT MY CUSTOMER SEEK FOR. I want to be a supplier of goods I sell, that I do see a market for, not an agent that go around looking for what my customers want. Hopefully it will do me more good than bad. They all say that it will take several failing business to realize a successful one, but too bad I couldn't fail this 40 years business, I couldn't bear the blame. I'm not akon, I couldn't just go around telling people to 'blame it on me' because for hell sure, there's nothing I can do even if they blame it on me.

If you ever thought that you could "take on more responsibility" but your boss always assign you to some small job that's simply because your boss couldn't see your capacity of taking up such responsibility, and you din't step up to tell your boss that you can bear those responsibility. Seriously, if you ever see a chance to step up and do the job right, do it! Your boss will love it, so long as you can get the job done correctly. Also don't expect your boss to throw you a big assignment just because you volunteered, it takes time for the boss to observe you, see your potential and assign the job that fits you the most.

What is lauyeelosophy?

It was a little unexpected that this blog is still up at running after so many years, and definitely a huge chunk of inactivity. Started off with nothing but some personal nags, sharing some of the songs that I genuinely like and their lyrics, and some thoughts that I have no one around me to discuss with, bullshits that I've structured.

Soon I'll put everything into a mixing bowl, sharing lyrics with a structured bullshit story. I wouldn't update it as often as I'd like to but for people who like reading, I'm sure you wouldn't be disappointed.

Yes a picture is worth a thousand words, but it wouldn't be as entertaining as a thousand words for sure.

Sincerely yours,
