The Straits Times

This week, one of our local English newspapers are giving out free copies of The Straits Times newspaper during the week before our first National Day in the year 1957. The Straits Times is a Singaporean newspaper if I'm not mistaken.I've already finished reading it and I find the style they organize the article in the newspapers are different than the ones now. Very short but very informative.Can you see the price in the picture?15 cents,quite cheap.

Tomorrow is Malaysia's 50th birthday!

Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Mosque

Was on the way to grandma's house at Shah Alam when I realised that the traffic light which we stopped at was somewhere near the mosque which made Shah Alam famous, the Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Mosque. I've been in there 2 times last year to do prayers during the fasting month. The architecture is very nice both interior and exterior. This particular mosque has 4 minarets which are 640 feet tall. Maybe I'll get a chance to do my prayers here again this year during the fasting month. If I do,I'll surely post some pictures of the interior of this particular mosque.

BTW,sorry for the no posts.I was fresh out of pictures because I didn't go anywhere during this past week but there will be pictures this week.And have a nice week everyone!

Merdeka spirit

Nationwide,everybody is putting the Jalur Gemilang to show their spirit to celebrate the date which is very meaningful to us all in Malaysia,our National Day.They only do this when our National Day approaches and it is only a matter of weeks before it's National Day.Sometimes I wonder when will they let our Jalur Gemilang wave in the breeze forever.All around KL,I can see that nearly all the buildings have already have a Jalur Gemilang.

Ampang Park #3

Those two teenagers were smoking.These days in Malaysia some of the teenagers are already smoking.Some of them started since 10-12 years old and continue until now.I had to take this picture quietly because I was afraid they might notice.You'll never know what they'll do to you when they notice you taking a picture of them.

Ampang Park #2

As mum looked for what she wanted at the vegetables section,I looked around to snap pictures for my DP.As I was looking,I spotted zuchinis which were in a container.It was my first time seeing a zuchini up close.All this while I've only read it in books.I think it looks like a cucumber.

What does it taste like?Is it nice?

Monkey on the wire

Lucky again!I was in my brother's room when I spotted a baby monkey climbing the wire.It spotted me trying to take a picture of it and it ran away.First time I saw a monkey since February.I wonder what happened to them.

Lontong Breakfast #4

Roti canai.One of the favourite food of Malaysian's and also tourists who visit Malaysia.The one I ate on Sunday morning was very nice.I didn't try the roti bom though.My brothers finished it.

And I just realised yesterday's post was my 100th post.Thanks to all of the people who have supported Selangor DP!

Lontong Breakfast #3

After I had finished eating,I looked for some inspirations to take a picture because I was getting bored.Coincidentally,this cat came to our table and looked up at me.It wanted to eat but unfortunately I had finished what I ate,which was roti canai.As it stared at me for a couple of seconds,I got the chance to snap a picture of it and then it turned away.I think I was very lucky on that day.

Lontong Breakfast #2

I had milked tea for my breakfast yesterday.It wasn't too sweet and it tasted just nice.The froth was nice as well.

Milked tea vs coffee.Which one do you prefer?

Lontong Breakfast #1

Today,right after I woke up,my dad said he was bringing us out for breakfast.Usually,I won't go because I'd rather stay at home and eat bread with St. Dalfours jam and watch televeision but today I decided to go out with them.We went to a lontong shop by the side of the road which is only about 10 minutes from home.The picture above shows lontong.Lontong is basically 'nasi impit' which is served with vegetable stew or better known here as 'Sayur Lodeh' and topeed with 'sambal' and toasted coconut or better known here as 'kerisik'.

'Nasi impit' is something like ketupat but now they have the instant ones which only require it to be boiled for a few minutes.Ketupat takes a much more longer time because you have to weave the casing and then fill it up and boil it in a very large pot.That is usually done about 1 week before Hari Raya in my 'kampung',Muar.My grand aunties, who are excellent cooks,takes ketupat orders every Hari Raya,I find their ketupat very nice especially with peanut sauce or better known as 'kuah kacang'.

Japanese Cucumber

My dad just bought this earlier in the morning a the morning market which is located at Taman Melawati.I was surprised to see that when he came back from the morning market,there wasn't only the regular fish and veggies which he normaly buys but also this japanese cucumber.I think my dad want's to start planting his own organic farm.

Do you have an organic lifestyle?

Setia Budi

This school used to be my school back in 2004 until 2006,now my younger brother is at this school.They moved to this new compound in 2005.The school's name is Sekolah Taman Ilmu dan Budi which means Garden of Knowledge and Virtue.It is then shortened into Setia Budi.It is under the International Islamic University Malaysia's management.In this compound,they have three school's in it including Setia Budi.The other two are International Islamic School(IIS) and the IIUM Montessori.Their session is from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m..Is that a very long period of time for one to be in school?

School van

I wasn on the way to my tuition but before that I had to send my younger brother to school which is at Gombak.Our car was behind his school's school van.Most of the school vans in Malaysia are yellow coloured.What about the one in your country of hometown?

Kopitiam breakfast #4

My brother was slurping the half boiled egg from the bowl when I took this picture.It really looks appetising but I've never been interested in tasting half boiled egg before.What does it taste like?

Kopitiam breakfast #3

The picture shows 'nasi lemak' with chicken rendang.Usually,rendang is eaten with lemang or ketupat during Hari Raya.The basic nasi lemak is served with boiled egg,2-3 slices of cucumber,a bit of nuts and fried anchovies and sambal.The chicken rendang adds more variety to the taste of the nasi lemak.

Kopitiam breakfast #2

The picture shows a typical kopitiam breakfast which is toasted bread with kaya,kopitiam style as well as a cup of 'teh tarik' which is basically tea with condensed milk.The toasted bread's filling is very nice and it has lots of butter in it as well as kaya.The 'teh tarik' has the correct amount of condensed milk so it tastes not too sweet and not too tasteless.

Kopitiam breakfast #1

This morning,my dad decided to bring us to a kopitiam which was opened by one of his close friends.The picture above shows my dad cracking open a half-boiled egg.

The shop is located in Bangi and it is called Bangi Kopitiam.Their slogan is "Let's eat together-gether...".I find it very catchy.
The people who go there are from the elite society of Bangi.By 8 a.m.,there are already about 8 people.Imagine how many people would be there at 10 a.m.?More pictures coming soon,so stay tuned!

I couldn't upload any pictures from my camera so I decided to use one of my old ones.This picture was taken at SACC Mall which is located in Shah Alam.The last time I went there,there were not many people.I guess because it was a Sunday and nobody wanted to get out of bed.

From this day on,

Ampang DP will be known as Selangor DP.I find it very hard to capture pictures because there are not much of interesting places in Ampang so I made up my mind to change it to Selangor DP.

Turkey on the loose

That turkey has been on the loose for nearly a week.It's been running around my housing area and clucking.It was very loud.Louder than my voice.I wonder where it came from...

DP Theme Day:Typical Breakfast

I find nuggets and fruit juice to be my typical breakfast.Very childish isn't it?Well,because I have two younger brothers who are still in kindegarden,so I have to eat what toddlers eat,nuggets.It's actually quite delicious but after sometime you'll get sick with it.I haven't and lets pray I won't get sick eating nuggets nearly every day.

Do visit these other blogs which are participating.
Due to time difference,some pictures might appear later throughout the day.
