Taiwan Day 4 - Feng Chia Night Market

Posted by Joshua |

After visited Sun Moon Lake, we head to Taichung where we a night. We stayed nearby to Feng Chia Night Market, famous commercial business districts as well a famous shopping paradise in Taichung.

It took about 2 hours to reach Feng Chia night market by car.


Check out our rooms in Taichung. The homestay is just opposite of Feng Chia University and called "Happy Times"


The room is quite spacious and cheap, it can fit about 4-5 people in one room. A night stay would only cost NT1500.

More info on the homestay click HERE!

After we have checked in, we all go out to have our dinner.


A proper dinner meal.


After that we all head to night market. FYI, Feng Chia is one of the biggest night market in Taiwan and it's the most recommended night market to visit.

We took a group photo before we split to 2 group, guys walk and gal shopping.


If you planning to buy sport shoe, you can consider to buy it here. Lot of variety of brand and model somemore it's tax free. You can get the latest and cheapest sport shoe.



There are a lot small food/snack stalls, you won't die of hunger here.

Spotted Malaysia Satay, wow! I'm so proud can?


Friend recommended me to try their bitter melon juice which are not bitter at all and taste very good. It's good to reduce body heat.


I was halted with an eye catching signboard. I rubbed my eye to make sure my brain didn't trick me. I spotted a BIG PENIS stall!!!  WTF!

Hahah! They are not providing sex service in public, they are just selling cakes that have the shape like a penis. lol! Taiwanese really bold!

Saw a long queue of people queuing up for big sausage wrap small sausage, they really like this tho. So do we, we ended up queuing as well :P


Yum yum!!


We really got queue ah, check the video below


We walked and shopped till all the shop closed but we have yet to visited all. Seriously, do recommend to stay 2 days here, 1 day really not enough.

The gals bought a lot stuff at this night market, each of them bought atleast 5-8 pair of shoes o.O"

I still want to shop but unfortunately they all are closing, I'm so unhappy so I slept on the street like no one business to protest. lol!

We need to buy tickets for boat ride to tour the lake. Each ticket cost NT300 about RM32.


The time we was there were raining, so we didn't stay there quite long. Just walk walk around and take little some photos.

The view from the other side of the lake.


There another stop to go uphill with gandola but we skipped it due to bad weather.


The tour guide told us a story about a history of "Grandmother Chicken Eggs"

1 egg she sold is only NT10 and she can earn NT100,00 every month. *rub eye* WTF! I also want to sell chicken egg weh!

What so special about the chicken egg?

er....... nothing special, taste like normal herba egg.

Before we head back to shore, we took a group photo at the Jetty.

The camera were setup on tripod with umbrella. Don't play play weh, the setup ain't easy weh. :P

After that we head back to Taichung's biggest night market where we all stay a night before heading back to Taipei.

Stress Movie: Contagion & Fright Night

Posted by Joshua |

Ok! Both of this movies are not linked, just that I missed out to blogpost about it reason for me to keep track how many movie I've watched in cinema then summaries it every years like 2009 & 2010.

One common thing I feel with these movies are they are damn stress to watch lor. I felt that I'm actually in the situation and if real I think I've already DIED!

Watched Contagion last weekend. The movie is about a threat of deadly disease and no vaccine for it, the international team doctors from WHO fight against time with the viral outbreak virus globally.



Rate 8/10 Few busy and packed big countries such as Shanghai, Hong Kong and more were on the scene. A dramatic thriller and interesting storyline.

Trailer of Contagion




The 2nd movie is Fright Night, thanks to Nuffnang for the invitation.



Fright Night is a remake of the 1985 original, where a teenage guesses that his new neighbour is a vampire who linked to a string of recent missing person in the neighbourhood. Everything gotten more complicated when his neighbour awared he has been watched.

How come western vampire can be that good looking, where as the chinese vampire look so frozen and can't even walk, only can jump -.-"

Rate 8.5/10 The chasing and revenge is crazy and didn't know vampire good in jokes. lol! Few hilarious moments in some serious scenes is stomach killing.

Say Hello To Nikon D5100

Posted by Joshua |

A week back I did mentioned I've bought a new toy and it was a new DSLR camera.

Say hello to "Lai Kon" D5100!


It has a realises high resolution and smooth tonal gradation 16.2 effective megapixels CMOS sensor. A great control of noise level even on high ISO.

The powerful image processing engine "EXPEED 2"  allow the D5100 to have full HD recording at 30fps which I maybe venture on this soon. Beside that it has built in stereo microphone and as well an optional stereo microphone compatible available.

Dedicated video recording button.

The horizontal swing-out, vari-angle LCD monitor come in handy, gives new viewpoints from flexible angles. LCD monitor can opens horizontally from 0° to 180° and flips up and down from +180° to -90°


Currently it's paired with my tammy 17-50mm f/2.8, my all time great lens.

Now I can cam-ho easily with my new camera. Teehee!


Will start using this camera to take photos and videos to share with you guys.

*all photos taken with iPhone 4

Drive

Posted by Joshua |

Catched a movie about a driver who drive. -.-"



Watched with Jeremy yesterday at GSC, 1 Utama, thanks to TimeOutKL for the invitation.

The movie is about a professional wheelman who do stunt drive for movie productions by day and steering getaway vehicles for armed heists by night. He has fallen in love with his beautiful neighbour, a vulnerable young mother whom her husband sentence in prison.

Then he has caught in trouble with her husband by helping him to paying off his protection money. Everything gone out of control and killing involved.

Rate 7.5/10 A quite serious movie IMHO and an unclear ending. The lead actor (Ryan Gosling) is really good. Surprisingly this movie received a very good rating in iMDb. Overall not bad just that too much long pause in between conversation which I found it a bit weird.

Check out the movie trailer below


Found a blog who are a salesman from Perodua uploaded the official brochure for the upcoming Perodua Myvi 1.5.

Actually the new Perodua Myvi 1.5 has 2 type which are the SE1.5 and Extreme 1.5.


Both of the Myvi 1.5 will runs on 1.5L 3SZ-VE engine which are the same with the current Perodua Alza. Auto and manual transmission are available on both model.


The different betweet the SE1.5 and 1.5 Extreme are the sportier bodykit and interior.

SE1.5 will have Flush Type Audio which does not have LCD touch screen player HU and black red tone of seats.

*auto variant has the LCD touch screen HU*

As for the Extreme 1.5, it come with LCD touch screen HU as standard and full black leather seat.


So this are the price list for the Perodua Myvi SE 1.5


The price list for Perodua Myvi 1.5 Extreme


The offered is not bad with 1.5L engine and features. Some perodua showroom is now open for booking and registration.

Nasi Lemak 2.0

Posted by Joshua |

Catched Nasi Lemak 2.0 just now at Berjaya Times Square.



Nasi Lemak 2.0 is a movie by Wee Meng Chee better known as Namewee. Nasi Lemak 2.0 is a movie about a young chef who is on a quest to find the best Nasi Lemak recipe.Multi-cultural based film where he met alot kind of people along way the quest and learnt the true meaning of unity and non-discrimination.

Impressive line up of Artists in this film such as Adibah Noor, Karen Kong, Afdlin Shauki, Kenny & Chee, Dato' David Arumugam, Reshmonu, Pete Teo, Felixia Yea, Dian Sharlin, Nadine Ann Thomas and much more. A lot familiar scenes such as Pudu, Jalan Pasar, Tanjung Sepat and much more.

I found the movie is super funny that all are related our country politics & cultures eg;
- Datuk Chua's incident
- Foreign labors in the country are cheap and can do better than locals
- "Diamlar"
- Hang Tuah (why you never put on sunblock?)
- Not only Chinese can speak Mandarin fluently, so can the Malays & Indian

Can tell me what I've left out?

Rate 6/10 Love the jokes & lame actions in the movie (you will understand if you are a Malaysian). I can only say the jokes are great but the storyline is so so only. Quite enjoy the movie, highly recommended to catch with friends and laugh together.

Perodua Myvi Extreme 1.5, Lagi Power Lagi Best

Posted by Joshua |

It's here! The long waited Myvi power with 1.5L engine.

Source from our country famous car reviewer Paultan, Perodua are coming out with a sporty version of Myvi which will have a 1.5L engine under the hood.

Perodua didn't name it SE (Special Edition) but they have name it as Extreme 1.5 as printed on the rear emblem. The tagline of the current Myvi were "Lagi Best" and for this one the tagline is "Lagi Power, Lagi Best" hmmmm sound like a racy car that gonna have illegal race. WTF!

The new Perodua Myvi Extreme used the same design with the current standard Myvi that facelifted with sportier front bumper, body kit and spoiler.


The yellow Myvi Extreme look like taken at port look like ready for shipment. All of it has the "Lagi Power, Lagi Best" sticker, most probably show units ready to demo/display at the Perodua branches/dealers showroom.

Check out the eye catching "Extreme" emblem.

The wheel look like to have the same size 14" on bronze colour which matched the coloured lip.

I was expected smoked headlight but unfortunately is a no for this model.

As for the interior, the steering & seats are wrapped with leather. Added on there are audio control buttons on the steering wheel paired with LCD touch screen head unit like the one available in Myvi Elegance. Carbon fibre on the door trims are spotted, made the car look sportier.


There are no official price or date of launch of this beauty, I believe the date would not be too far.

Do you like the new Myvi? How much would you be expect this Myvi Extreme 1.5L would cost?

UPDATE!!
Checkout the price here http://tallboyz.blogspot.com/2011/09/perodua-myvi-lagi-power-lagi-best.html
