It was one simple afternoon, when I dragged my heavy huge ass and ancient dying lappie down from my house to Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, Sarawak Plaza to make use of their free wi-fi internet. It was a good day; I met up with Aaron, whom I have last seen last year!! He has been away, and I have been busy, so yeah, catching up with a friend is indeed always an exciting thing. Doing it in coffee bean, with our lappies around, beats the crap out of any other hip activities that youngsters so senselessly burn their cash for nowadays. You just could not go wrong with free internet for me, since I do not have Streamyx at home. Yes, imagine the pain of uploading photos, blogging and basically doing any online activities without a broadband connection, but instead, utilizing the yesterday's dial up
56k 33kb/s snail speed.
and not that it matters, since I am hungry 24/7, even in my sleeps, but yeah we walked over to nearby Tun Jugah Food Gallery, just across the road, opposite Coffee Bean. I have not eaten there for quite some time, and I desperately miss the Nasi Goreng Ayam Special served exclusively there!! I have even blogged about it one year ago, before I left Kuching back to Perth to complete my tertiary education. Click here to view that previous entry.

Why is the nasi goring (fried rice) so special you may ask? For the price of RM4.50, though slighty more expensive than ordinary street pricing for any fried rice, it is served with 2 sticks of satay, generous quantity of deep fried chicken, and a fried egg, along with few slices of cucumbers which would not make any difference anyway. I always opted to have the Satay Sauce to be poured over the rice, adding the Oooooph to the overall taste blending between the rice and the delicious sauce!!! I tell you, nasi goreng will never get any better than this.
Poor Aaron has his camera throwing tantrums around on him. Something is definitely wrong with his Canon digital camera, when used it properly lighted places, e.g. outdoor photographs, the results would turn out to be extremely over-exposed. Then there is the problem with the horizontal lines jolting the picture from top to bottom. Go to Aaron’s entry on this and see it for yourself. I know how painful it is to have a camera malfunctioning like that, I can totally relate. I just hope that the camera can be repaired, or well, if better, replaced with a whole new one !! And then, the blogger can live happily ever after again, ahahahahaha. When this happens Aaron, we should cam-whore again, but this time, with your camera instead, ok??
