Running out of topics to write about
But here's a picture of my dog staring at a cat 
He gets extremely excited whenever he sees one outside
I always wonder what will happen if he ever catches one :e

Showcasing some of Labuan's yummy food ;)

The lobsters in Labuan is shockingly huge
My dad bought two from the market and brought them to the restaurant to cook
Was only expecting a little but whoa, look at the portion size!
Plus, lobsters in Labuan is actually quite affordable
Costs around RM80 per kilo = $26 per kilo! *gasp*
Gotta eat more while I'm here heh.

This right here is my favourite banana leaf restaurant in Labuan
Every single one of their curry is on point!
Especially their crab curry, the crab flavour really comes through
It's so good that we come here almost every Sunday :D

Omg okay I'm getting hungry from writing this post.

Life has been all about work at the moment
It's pretty much gonna be my second home from now on
So I had the perfect cup to bring to work to feel more comfortable :D


Heidi bought it for me as a birthday gift last time
And now I can make full use of it! :P
They provide free drinks in their pantry such as milo, coffee, nestum and tea 
Not to mention they also have free biscuits!

Fratini's is another one of Labuan's more fancy & expensive restaurants
This and is Senkawa, I think that's pretty much it.
I've been here a few times & for this visit, they amped up their presentation!

Al Frutti Di Mare

Seafood Linguine 

It totally wasn't like this the last time.
It used to be just pouring the slab of food onto the plate and serve.
Plus, they actually taste pretty good!

My sister noticed that me and my brother were wearing matching clothes to the colour of our hair
So I present to you,
Red VS Black

I'm currently working 6 days a week :/
(Monday - Saturday)

It's actually my own decision to go to work on Saturday
There's nothing to do in Labuan so I might as well just go to work and earn some money $$
So my current life is just eat sleep work repeat :(

Complaints aside, I did accomplish something today.

I built this! :D
This thing is called the Compensator
Took me about two days to build one
The entire tool is crazy long, so this is only a tiny fraction of the whole assembly :O
Probably gonna take me about 2-3 years to master everything.

Still, I actually quite like the job.
As my colleague told me,
"Working here is like playing lego"

About a year ago the first ever Japanese Restaurant, Senkawa opened in Labuan
I went to check it out and it was horrendous! D:
The service was all over the place & food was horrible
The experience was so bad I did not ever want to go back

One year later, we decided to give it another chance
Since we don't really have much of a choice for eating out in Labuan :/

It was SO much better!

This time I decided to order their katsu curry
Cause you just can't go wrong with katsu curry right?
It was pretty average but hey, I actually enjoyed it
I'm happy I can get some form of Japanese food in Labuan :P

Chicken Katsu Curry

Salmon Head

I like how they actually put a lot of effort into their presentation

'Buka puasa' means 'To open the fast'

It's fasting month in Malaysia!
So almost all the hotels are serving like this amazing 'puasa' buffet.
It's crazy how so many people comes out to eat during this period.
Where did all these people come from!!

I've just joined Halliburton for 10 days and I've already been to 2 company dinners :P
These buffets are craaazy.
So much variety of food to choose from!

PS. I've been having fun with snapchat lately.
So these are exclusive snapchats that I actually send to my friends.
I'll regularly share these on my blog as well!
Why not right? :P

I'm currently back in Malaysia working at Halliburton, an Oilfield Services Company!
My current position is Mechanical/Electrical Geopilot Technician
So my job is to perform service and maintenance of an electronic oil drill
Pretty tedious stuff :O
& it's pretty energy-draining too

Still, life is kinda dull in Labuan :/
I gotta get out of here.

One other thing.
I'll blog more from now on :D
Good time to catch up!
I was so caught up in Sydney I had almost no time to write about anything
Stay tuned!

didn't realise labuan had such good lobster
but oh myyyyyyy they taste so good :O
tried it three ways
grilled, fried, and cheese baked

grilling the lobster is by far the yummiest way :D

no pics for how they were cooked but here's a live version of them :P

bought myself a new pair of in-ear headphones back when I went to USA
I got fed up with Sennheiser CX300-II
never buy those headphones
the quality is actually pretty good
but it's so fragile it broke 3 times
(yes I bought it 3 times, don't make the same mistake as me)

so I decided to try a-JAYS Four
(I wanted the a-JAYS Five but I couldn't find it anywhere D:)

it's made in Sweden and it's tangle-free cable really is tangle-free :D
been using them for about a month now
and it's working pretty well so far

a thing to note is that it's bass driven
so you won't get the best clarity
but considering it's price tag
it's a pretty darn good headphone
gonna stick with this for a while

my mom's glorious homemade prawn sambal

i think the ingredients are just dried prawns, garlic, and dried chili
something so simple could be made so delicious!
