Happy New Year!

Happy New Year all! I hope the new year is treating you well, or at least better than it is treating me....

Started off the celebration with taking up the Basic Wall Climb course with XLB and CSB at Camp5 One Utama.

After the 10am to 4pm session on Sunday 30th Dec 07, we are officially the house cicak lizards now! Muahahaha ;p

The next day, I made pasta and a batch of carrot with cream cheese cupcakes for my sis's new year eve bash at home.

I still can't get my carrot cake to tasted as good as before. Big silly mistake because I forgot to backup my recipes when I formatted my hard disk. I lost my perfected recipes =( Will post it up with I get the carrot cake to taste yummier.

I almost grated off a chuck of skin from my left thumb when grating the carrots!

I didn't feel like going out again this year. Can't stand the traffic jam. I surprisingly enjoyed many cups of wine (I think I am starting to like wine), and played catch up on my series of animes. While Naruto Shippuuden 040-041 was playing, Mom popped into my PC room and said "Happy New Year! So poor thing ah, celebrating alone in the room?"

She didn't pity me for long, because she saw me with my Choya Umeshu in the room. I'm alone, but all I need is the company of my current favorite drink. I have always taken Choya on the rocks, but this time I have mixed it with sparkling wine. Totally love it. Imbi&Itchy you should try mixing it like this too. Really good.

Anyway, I didn't really do much on the first day of 2008. My back was and still is killing me. My old injury from a year and a half ago came back to haunt me. I have been feeling the pain for four to five months now... but the pain have been getting worst. I spent the day FaceBooking.

Anyway, just read on and you'll get to what I have to say. This is lemang. Lemang is a traditional food originated from the Minangkabau people of Indonesia cooked in a hollowed bamboo stick.

The center of the bamboo is stuffed with water and glutinous rice.

When I saw this, I knew I had to have it! My lemang! (On HumanPets on Facebook hahahaha) A used toilet roll and a hamster stuffed in it. Ain't he cute? ;p~

I keep looking at Lemang at work and I found myself trying to hold back from laughing out loud. Lemang is just so adorable! I wonder if you all get it. I just find this picture so amusing and hilarious. I'm laughing out loud too at the moment. LOL ROTF ...until my back hurtsssss

I finally couldn't stand the pain anymore. Went to see the doctor. I was told that my lower back, the tail bone area, is inflamed. It was indeed my old injury playing up again. I really got to fix my back. My mom says that the cool and rainy weather worsen the condition of my back. Kind of like the old people's problem with bones 'fong sap'.

Got to stop all kind of sporting activities including my gym sessions and rock climbing! Arhghghghgh!

Hope all of you had a better start at 2008. Else.. join the club ;p Back to my Lemang now.... hehehe
