Sleep until like that also can.

Onn Recipe 1 Borneo

Onn Recipe located at 1 Borneo Ground Floor, I noticed they have recently updated their menu to include many dishes similar to those served in Hong Kong Recipe. Roasted  Chicken/ Duck/Meat rice or noodles are their specialty. Their wontons are pretty good too. 

Deep Fried Wontons
I love their wontons! Very generous amount of prawn and meat filling. A must try! 
Wonton Soup
It was so good, we have to order one in soup. 

Shreeded Chicken Hor Fun
The broth is very light and sweet, I don't mean the kind of artificial sweetness. The hor fun done nicely too, not too soft and still el dente.

Fish balls and Fish Cakes in soup
This was so-so only, in my opinion. Taste like any ordinary fishballs and fishcakes, nothing spectacular. I wanted the fish paste, but they ran out of that. Do try the fish paste if they have it, it was pretty good. 


Weird Food #3

More weird food habits of mine. Pasta with rice! I am the ultimate connoisseur of East meets West, muahaha... 

I love rice, and I love pasta. I don't care if you think I'm nuts, this is really yummy.

Tip for Braces-Wearer #2

Choosing your toothbrush

Choosing the right sort of toothbrush is very important when you start wearing braces. Once you have those metal brackets and wires stuck to your teeth, it's not coming out for the next 12-24 months. It also means that you will need to start cleaning your teeth differently than before.

Your orthodontist will most probably recommend you a toothbrush with soft bristle. Nowadays, there are more manufactures producing soft bristle toothbrushes after the Japanese brand Systema introduced the 0.02mm bristle toothbrush. Colgate produce the Slimsoft toothbrush with 0.01mm bristle, Darlie, too have their own Soft-sensitive toothbrush.

There are also special toothbrushes made for people who wear braces, these are often available through your orthodontist and some pharmacies. However, let's not limit our choices.

No matter which brand you choose, make sure to get one that has soft bristles, because they are gentler to your gums. (This applies to people who doesn't wear braces too, since hard bristle toothbrushes are harsh on your gums, which might cause bleeding or soreness)

Choosing a toothbrush with soft bristle also ensure you won't accidentally damage your braces, like causing the wires to dislodge or the brackets to come off. You will pay the price if the brackets do come off, literally. I was told it will cost RM50 for each bracket that came off, and RM100 if you lost it. So far I have not experience this problem *touch wood*

The more refined bristle also gets into the spaces between your braces much more easily to get rid of any food trapped there. This will help prevent to formation of plague, which is the main causes of tooth decay, bat breath or gum diseases. You wouldn't want to have straight teeth but end up with rotten ones, do you?  

Hope this helps all fellow train-trackers out there.
I'm currently using Systema, but recently bought some soft bristle ones from Darlie, they have black bristles!

Weird Food #2

This is really awesome, I highly recommend it if all you got is plain rice and nothing else.

Korean Seaweed! (Some people called it laver.

Purchase Korean Seaweed that comes in packets like the above. I just randomly grab some.

Open the packet

Take one piece of seaweed, lay it on your plate and plop a spoon of rice on top.

Roll it up with your spoon, doesn't matter what it look like cause it's going into your stomach anyway.

Ah, this is a nicer looking one. Just pop the whole thing in your mouth. It's that simple.

Taste just like Japanese Onigiri without the fillings. If the seaweed is salty enough, you should be able to finish up a whole plate of rice with one packet. If you have some instant Miso soup to go with it, even better.

What do you think? Is this something you'll try or pass.

Weird Food #1

*I admit that I have weird eating habits. Just thought I should document them, it might be interesting.*

Here's what I have the other day, rice with soup, topped with savory biscuits: Arnold's Sensations- Vintage Cheddar and Chives with Sesame Seed.

It was yummy, by the way. Reminds me of my childhood days where I used to bring rice from home, and eat it topped with some sort of Keropok (junk food) during recess time. You might think; "Oh, so that's why you look so malnurished?" Not true, I just have a high metabolism.

I do eat proper food, okay.

I Taw a Puddy Tat

Nippy's Iced Honeycomb

My recent favorite: Nippy's Iced Honeycomb Flavored Dairy Drink from Tong Hing. Its a nice change from the usual choice of Chocolate and Strawberry milk in the market.

It's a milk drink laced with subtle honeycomb flavor. It taste like Cadbury Crunchie bars without the sickly sweetness.

Rather pricy and quite difficult to find, but it should be okay for a rare indulgence.
