Darkest day in my life

嗨, 大家新年快乐。 今天已经初五了,明天就初六了,时间真的过得真快。相信大家的新年都过得很愉快吧,我的也不例外。每一天都是迟睡早醒,每一天都不够睡,不过这样才叫新年嘛。:)

今天并不是要来分享我的新年过得怎样,可能要让你们失望了。其实不大想写,因为会让我想起,会让我伤心,会让我难受。但是我觉得我想要用言语来表达我是有多么的伤心。我知道在新年期间真的不要写些伤心事,但是事情就偏偏发生了。:(

在新年之前,不幸的我的laptop坏了。原因是什么,我不大清楚。拿去修了,维修电脑的人说是我的hard disk问题。他说我的hard disk坏了。问题是我根本没有做back up, 我的一切都在里面,最重要的是我的照片,我最宝贝的照片!告诉他不管怎样多要把我的hard disk给修好,钱不是问题。他说大概需要1星期来维修,没有关系,我能等。新年期间都不敢去想,尽量不要去想。没有想到那个人刚刚就打电话来说修不回了,因为我的hard disk全部被刮花了。这就意味着从2012年的照片到2015年一月的照片全部没有了!我白活了那几年!那么多的照片,那么多的回忆,是多么的珍贵,是多么的无价!就这样没了。我没有哭,因为我知道哭也没用。我不懂要怎样!我告诉男朋友以后我们结婚slide show没有照片放了。出国旅行的照片,家人朋友生日的照片,好多好多的照片都没有了。原本要blog的照片全都没有了。

没有人可以帮我。我好想哭真的好想哭!我什么都不要,就只要我的照片全部回来。我的命根,我的回忆。
没有人懂我是多么的痛,因为没有人懂那些照片对我的来说的重要性。


我应该怎么办?

Tell me who doesn't love good food? I admit I am one of them, and since you are reading this, I guess you are same with me! :D 

Last week I was invited by TAO to try out their new menu. To be frank, I had only been to TAO once excluding this time. It was not because I don't like their food, it's because they're providing buffet and people who can't eat much like me just can't get to try all the food I want. :/ But but butttttt, now I don't care anymore I'm gonna eat eat eat try my best to eat what I want to eat because their foods are just too YUMMY!! 

TAO AUTHENTIC ASIAN CUISINE the Upscale restaurant that offer ALL- U- CAN- EAT buffet with full table service, focusing on quality rather than on price. The restaurant includes specialties such as Japanese, Chinese, Thailand, and other foreign or ethnic food.

Hameediyah Restaurant @ Campbell Street

Are you bored of having the same dishes like steamboat, barbecue, and Chinese cuisine during Chinese New Year? Why not try something new during this CNY? Hameediyah restaurant is promoting new dishes only for this Chinese New Year.




# Deep fried fish head curry.
Unlike the fish head curry at other places where the fish head is cooked directly in the curry. At Hameediyah, the fish head is first deep fried to get the fish head crispy, and then only dipped into boiling curry in a large clay pot. The dish is cooked upon order so the freshness is guaranteed. Deep fried fish head curry is served for 4 persons and 6 persons. Each served with white rice.

# Spicy king prawn curry
Spicy! Spicy! Spicy! This king prawn curry is so spicy that I can't handle the hotness! Each pot is served with two king prawns and the prawns are bigger than my hand! Like the fish head curry, the dish is served with white rice too.

# Prawn biryani
Hameediyah is serving the first prawn biryani rice in Penang. The rice is cooked with prawn shell oil to get aroma of prawns and the prawns are salted with herbs and spices. Each spoon is the perfect combination of prawn and biryani rice.


This promotion is only available on Chinese New Year! Don't miss out before it's too late! 
Let's go to Hameediyah now! 


HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR

Elmural Cafe

I bet cafe hunters must be very exciting about this post! YES YES, there is a new cafe in town again!! :D It is Elmural Cafe and it has been opening since November '14.

Penang street mural is the trademark of Penang and I guess most of you have known it. Tourists come to Penang to check out the street murals on the walls in the heritage area. However, the weather of Penang is scorching hot, and it is torturing to search for the murals under the hot sun, especially when the tourists are not familiar with the streets and the murals are far from each other.

Elmural Cafe, the SEEN and UNSEEN MURALS.

Elmural Cafe is a cafe that serves good food and provides the replica of the street murals. The owner has taken the photos of the street murals, combined them altogether and posted them on the wall of the cafe with 1:1 ratio. Also, it mainly focuses on pork dishes and gelato so you can get to try something new which is totally different with other cafes in Penang. :) To look special and unique, the boss even designed its logo in a pig shape and added a cone ice cream in it. The logo is so simple but yet describes Elmural Cafe perfectly. 










The ambiance is fine so are their food and drinks!! 

# *left to right* Imported Latte, Cappucino and Chocolate. 

*left to right* Iced honey lemon, Orea milk shake and Orange juice.

# Soup of the day // Mushroom soup.
Served with toasted croutons, the wild mushroom soup is thick and creamy.

# Lamb chop with yogurt mint sauce.
I am not a big fan of mutton because I've always thought lamb is smelly and body temperature will get higher after eating it. But this lamb chop is really impressive! The meat is so tender and it doesn't taste weird dipped into yogurt mint sauce.

# Pork ribs baked with hot chipotle sauce.
One of the specialties! Have you imagined pork ribs in spicy taste? Well this ribs are going to blow your mind away. The ribs are baked in perfection with spicy chipotle sauce but yet the meat is very tender. You will crave for more!


# Leftover pork salad.
Don't be freaked out with the name "leftover", the taste is as amazing as the freshly roasted pork! I personally like the sesame sauce as its dressing. :)

# Pork ribs roasted with cheesy tops
Another unpredictable combination. The cheese is roasted justly to cover all over the ribs. The taste of ribs and cheese... Mmh!

# Pork shoulder chops with brownie sauce.
The meat is rather stiff but the brownie sauce is so aromatic!

No matter how much girls eat, there is always a space in every girl's stomach to fill with desserts! :P Ice-cream after dinner is just a fine selection. Elmural Cafe's gelato is a good choice for girls. The gelato is homemade by the boss's friend and the flavours are very special.

# Italian coffee with espresso base (back)/ Calamansi with tea base (front)
Two of these gelato desserts are affogato-typed, with ice-cream dipped in espresso, tea, and milk bases.
Italian coffee is very aromatic and rich.
The calamansi is a sour sorbet which is mouth-watering!


# Chocolate chili, Oreo & White chocolate
"Chocolate with chili?! Are you kidding me?! Isn't the combination weird?!" 
"No it actually tastes rich chocolaty at first, and the spicy comes after your swallow."
Oreo and white chocolate gelato are so creamy and tasty.
