Waking up 5 am on the plane was worth it. Took this picture showing the sunrise at 30,000 feet above sea level. Priceless.
I might not be in Africa but looking over from the top was breathtaking enough.
Now only I understand why they keep saying Cape Town is a beauty.
Took this on my way to my hotel in Buenos Aires.
One of the monuments that I took in Buenos Aires.
More story and picture to come. Need to get ready for my dinner tonight with the rest of the group. So far so good, weather is around 32c and the sky is really blue, very good for photography. Stay tuned, more to come! Please go to www.PlacesAndFoods.com

It has been a while since we had a good Sunday breakfast. The last good one we had was in Seri Kembangan for dim sum. That was weeks ago. Yesterday morning, we decided to venture to a place that we haven't visited before.
The ever popular Yut Kee. Located at Jalan Dang Wangi, Yut Kee has been around for years. Established at 1928, the place now is a whopping 82 years old and they are still going on strong. The place itself is a pre-war building.
The interior is still the same as before. The characteristics of the place is still unchanged. Only now they have a LCD tv on the wall.
I like the way they preserved the place. For example, this antique safe. Godness, this was the first time I see something like this. Purely, antique!
Rachel ordered the "cham". "Cham" is also known as "ying yong" a mixture of coffee and tea. The hot cham is value at RM1.30 (US 40c). Rachel loved the fragrance of the coffee in this.
There was nothing better than a good Pork chop for breakfast. Priced at RM 9 (US 2.20), the pork chop was tender. Coated with egg, the pork chop was deep fried and covered with the gravy. With fried potatoes, beans and carrots, the pork chop was pretty "alright".
"Roti babi" or pork bread was priced at RM 7.50 (US 2). French toasted with fillings of a mixture of pork, onions and hints of crab meat. Rachel felt this was overpriced and there's nothing to shout about. She felt it was too heavy for breakfast.
Supposingly they only sell their famous roast pork from 11.30 am but we got lucky yesterday. They took it out early to sell. Gosh look at the roast pork!Read more about it HERE...

Yesterday, we were invited for a private party courtesy of Carlsberg with FHM Magazine's GND (Girls Next Door) by Jun Jun Riko. Riko won a Carlsberg contest earlier on to entitle her to invite 50 of her friends for this party. We were 2 of her 50 adored friends.
We reached Carlsberg Brewery at Shah Alam around 10pm. The crowd were already there and we didn't waste any time to mingle around with friends.
How do you know your friends love you?
They ask you to do a beer drinking contest. Nice friends right? Well, as you can see I can't really drink quick but I enjoyed the fun.
Like usual, the string of photo and camwhoring session will start at a party like this. Copykate, me, Hikaru and Jun Jun Riko.
Rachel enjoyed herself with her first Carlsberg of the night.
