They Serve Only Fish!!!

Last 2 weeks, we were here for lunch - Restoran Kolam Ikan. This place had been feature in a few magazines. I always wanted to drop by this place and finally, we were there.

So from here, you know their contact no and business hour ok. This place is located at Sungai Kob. It's about 25minutes from the Kulim Hi-Tech Industrial Park

This place is located at the orchard - durian orchard

You will also pass by some palm oil tree
This is the eating place. Not sure how many people can accept this type of environment but for food lover, we will go anywhere to hunt for good food. Any food lovers agree with me?

Fried fish with 3 flavours - sweet, sour and a little spicy. It was good
Steam fish with special soy sauce and ginger. Forgot what fish is this already
This is good. Simple and nice. Abalone mushroom steam with garlic and dried chillies.

All the fishes are caught freshly from the pond. Pick your fish and they will cook for you. They only sell fishes ok. No prawn, crab, squid and other seafood. Only FISH!!!

This little fishes are told that it need another a year for them to grow before it's ready to sell.

The river is so clean and nice
The best thing during this trip is ................... this restaurant is open by one of dad old buddy son. His son used to come over to our house so often during our childhood time. So, I got a free meal for that day. He insisted that this meal is on him since he had not see me for so looooooooong. Feeling so paiseh. Thanks to you Yue Kor Kor. Yup, that's how I used to call him. In fact, he is already a good cook when he is young. I will surely go back again for some other different type of fish but I will pay the bill liau. No more free food.

Visiting A Village

Few weeks ago, we just stop by over a small village as we were on the way to somewhere. The purpose of us stop over is to show our kids what is village look like and suddenly we spotted something and the 2 kids got so excited.

My little girl got so excited when she saw the chicken. She keep telling us things about the chicken.
Both of them stand there for more than 10 minutes and they were really having so much fun looking at the chicken.

What did he tell the chicken??? Don't you think both of them are communicating? In real fact, my son is afraid of chicken because of the claw.

Well, we live in the city and it's real difficult to see like this. Even though we stop by for less than 20 minutes, the kids are really enjoying themselves.

It's always feel great to enjoy ourselves with something nice after a hard day of work. Few days ago, I went over to my beautician and tell her I need to have a facial and massage. So I go for my massage first then end it with a facial. Later she ask me if I would like to have a pedicure. Honestly, I had not been doing pedicure for a very very long time. Still remember those days where I will do have my pedicure and medicure at least once a month. But, those were the days lar................... Well, since I am quite free for that day - why not? Yup, have spend quite a lum sum there. So, when I get home I must know how to claim from hubby liau. Must know how to tone my voice liau. Wahahaha.............................

Nice or not. I like the flowers that the lady draw on my toes.

You guys must be wondering did I get a lecture from hubby or not for spending so much. Woi!!! Surprisingly, he did not say anything and just ask me to take the money from his wallet. Am I dreaming??? Something wrong here? I wonder ...........................

About Banana Fruits

A friend of mine send me an email regarding banana. Woi!!! It's about the fruits, wokay. Not the banana that belong to the man one. Not many of us really know the benefit of eating banana but I think this would be a great info to share with all of you.

Bananas Containing three natural sugars -- sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber, a banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy. Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world's leading athletes. But energy isn't the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.
Depression: According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana. This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.
PMS: Forget the pills -- eat a banana. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.
Anemia: High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.

Blood Pressure: This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it the perfect way to beat blood pressure. So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the banana industry to make official claims for the fruit's ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.

Brain Power: 200 students at a Twickenham (Middlesex) school were helped through their exams this year by eating bananas at breakfast, break, and lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert.

Constipation: High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.
Hangovers: One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a banana milkshake, sweetened with honey. The banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.

Heartburn: Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.
Morning Sickness: Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.
Mosquito bites: Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of a banana skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.
Nerves: Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system.Overweight and at work? Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria found pressure at work leads to gorging on comfort food like chocolate and chips. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients, researchers found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs. The report concluded that, to avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours to keep levels steady.

Ulcers: The banana is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chronicler cases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.

Temperature control: Many other cultures see bananas as a 'cooling' fruit that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers. In Thailand , for example, pregnant women eat bananas to ensure their baby is born with a cool temperature.
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD): Bananas can help SAD sufferers because they contain the natural mood enhancer tryptophan.
Smoking: Bananas can also help people trying to give up smoking. The B6, B12 they contain, as well as the potassium and magnesium found in them, help the body recover from the effects of nicotine withdrawal.
Stress: Potassium is a vital mineral, which helps normalize the heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates your body's water balance. When we are stressed, our metabolic rate rises, thereby reducing our potassium levels. These can be rebalanced with the help of a high-potassium banana snack.
Strokes: According to research in 'The New England Journal of Medicine,' eating bananas as part of a regular diet can cut the risk of death by strokes by as much as 40%!

So, a banana really is a natural remedy for many ills. When you compare it to an apple, it has four times the protein, twice the carbohydrates, three times the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals. It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods around. So maybe its time to change that well-known phrase so that we say, 'A banana a day keeps the doctor away!'
