West End Party Up + Saturday Market + Radio

Ok ya.. I know its been a while
since I last blogged.
Been really busy taking naps.
So there! Let's start from Friday..

19 March 2010 (FRIDAY) P.M.

It was Grete, Kristin and Irena's birthday
So they held a house party at our place..


One of the rare sights - an Asian
Wait.. thats me!


Trent (Superman) and Gorm

Trent and Gorm dropped by to visit


Winnie was doing Jay's laundry next door


Chris and myself are here today
at the Saturday West End Market




Cupcakes, anyone?


Very popular stall - Iced Chai Tea




OMG! Bah Zhang!
(Chinese Rice Dumplings)


Lots of buskers as well..




The juice van


Curry Puff and Spring Rolls






Gypsy Coffee


Very tasteful packs of Jungle Beans


Fortune Telling for you, maybe?


Paw Paw = Papaya


Chinese Massage seems to be a very "IN" thing here






Soaps for the Smelly


Asian Religious Art are also very "IN"
Buddha statues, prints and paintings sells well


I love Cello


African Art


Brisbane High School Rowing Club




They don't look too new, do they?


For the furry ones..


Vendor's kid playing with his fishing rod toy
I guess every boy played fishing games
before they started playing with their own rods


Fresh Flowers


Buddha Art




Bittergourd = Bitter Melon


Chris thought these were Monkey Testicles


Cassette Tapes


We should hang this on our chests
RAWL


Brisbane High School Ladies Kick-off




The girls doing warm-up!


The Chicken Man


Mud Crabs


Bumped into our French neighbours
Chloe and Seb


Cycle me to the stars..


Chinese Child Care Centre


Bleeding Tree


Find the Tiger Spider


Chris says that, if you were to see shoes on the cables
The next right turn will bring you to a drug dealer




Clothes were left on the streets for the homeless
In Singapore, you'll either be fined by NEA
but that probably won't happen, cos there's always a karang guni

20 March 2010 (SATURDAY) P.M.

SSA met up at South Bank Cinema
for some grilled burgers


HOLY SHIT!
I forgot what they call this burger
Queensland Huge-ass Burger or something..


Fiona, give me back my burger thanks


Oh no... How am I gonna eat it?


But I took it like a MAN!


Some funky mural at the restaurant..






Next stop was The Three Monkeys again..


After-meal coffee are always awesome!


Dylan, Sean, Jay and Winnie came along
Since its so near our place
WEST END REPRESENT!


Faith and Yen






Winnie and Jay
the West End couple


21 March 2010 (SUNDAY) P.M.

Went to THE FOX for dinner
Dylan and Jean


Kai and Kendrick


Me and Fiona
(Her eyes are opened)


Doctor Teo


The Buzzer


Dylan can't eat Beef
so he ordered Fish & Chips


Steak AUD 2
Chips + Salad AUD 3
Total: AUD 5
Noticed I ordered Medium?
The last time I had my usual Medium Rare
It came kinda Rare, but this was Stone!
But shit! Where can you find AUD 5 steaks?


The staff made a msitake and gave us 7 steaks for the price of 2
How awesome, we saved...
AUD 5 x (7-2) = AUD 25




I have no idea what Yen was trying to do..


Anyways it was a great gathering..
After that we went to Jay's house to slack and chill
before heading to the studio..


Here we are at 4EB FM98.1 Studio
Its an Aussie radio station


Setting up the volumes and music playlist..


Richard switches on our mic to test the volumes


5.. 4.. 3.. 2.. and 1..
You're ON AIR!


大家好欢迎收听啦啦世界!
Anyways its a Mandarin programme
as much as we speak in Singlish,
its a Chinese-based show..

Tang Yuan, Nai Cha, Na Na and Xiao Ming


Our show is on Sundays 10-11pm (Aussie)

iPhone Updates

My Jungle Campus..


This is kinda like a common sight in campus
Left-over food, ants etc
Aussies are too lazy to clean up after meals


Mt. Tamborine
Picnic with Griffith GC SSA


Went to TIMEZONE with Ivy and Chris
to shoot some hoops
Ivy is pretty damn good
We won at a tie score


Scenery behind BUSINESS School


Breakfast with Kai
after returning the car
The omelette is bigger than her face!


BIG BREAKFAST
Fuckin' steam! The black ones are mushrooms..
I marry whoever makes this kinda breakfast for me every morning
Fat/Ugly girls may not apply, thanks.


My all time fav. cake is - Black Forest!


Harmony Day @ Griffith
Some huge-ass JENGA game


Some water lizards near the computer lab


Huge bird at Merlot Coffee (Griffith)
when Amanuma-kun and myself were having coffee


And I thought Chinese have more respect for lecturers..


Huge-ass Possum in my campus during the day!
I am seriously suspecting that my school is a Zoo..
You can even see noctornal animals in the day


Roast Chicken Rice at Little Singapore
SUCKS! Go for the Steamed one
This roasted version imitates Hong Kong style distastefully!
You know? The crispy salt + plum sauce skin style?


Amanuma had Crispy Noodles with Seafood
and he enjoyed it thoroughly!


Fried Chicken Rice from Happy Days
Looks more like Nasi Goreng Ayam
with lots and lots of PEA
Note that they removed the beansprout tail
How many F&B establishments actually bothered?


Some day later.. Chup Chai Peng
at Happy Days. They have the same dishes everyday..
And I'm alwyas eating the same Chai..


Chris likes to eat at Happy Days too!


Dinner today.. George Street


AJISEN RAMEN
I must first tell you how much I hate Singapore's Ajisen;
they're really so horrible I swear my dog won't eat it!
Let's hope this one at Brisbane will change my mind..


The menu item is pretty much the same..


Real chopsticks instead of wooden disposable ones..
Service is by authentic Japanese staff..
Ambience is bright and inviting,
restaurant plays soft classical music


I ordered Miso Chashu Ramen
AUD 14.50
One thing I hate most when I eat ramen is a hard boil egg
Ramen eggs are supposed to be soft and runny with an orange yolk
But this miso chashu ramen has got great soup
and very tasty chashu (roast pork)
definitely beats the Singapore chains hands down
In addition, service was FANTASTIC!
Shame on you - Ajisen, Singapore


Set B comes with a Chicken Chunk Rice
The Chicken Chunks are fragrant and tasty
Kinda like mini Tori Katsu
Rice is fragrant and perfectly cooked
Additional AUD 7
Comes with a canned drink of your choice too!


Winnie has Ajisen Ramen
AUD 12


Kendrick has Katsu Ramen
AUD 16
He says that its super!


Black Sesame Ice-cream
Lacks texture and fragrant
but wat do you expect from a pre-packed?
However compensates with creamy taste.


Melon Sorbet
Very nice! =)


Guava Sorbet
Super nice =)


Yum yum yum yum yum yum yum..

[General Rating]
Food Quality: 8.5/10
Value for Money: 8/10
Beverage Quality: 9/10 (Pokka)
Service: 9/10
Ambience: 9/10
Return Factor: 10/10
Other Remarks: Doesn't beat Tampopo but pretty damn impressive for Ajisen!


FIN!
