Picadilly @ Millennium Square, SS14



I haven't posted about food in a while so I am going to do so now!

I have recently discovered this awesome restaurant called Picadilly in SS14, Millennium Square. It is around the same area as Digital Mall. I think some of you must have heard of it before since it has been gaining a lot of popularity.

I have taken a liking to this restaurant due to its affordable and huge portion of food and also they are pretty delicious too! Besides that, whether you favor western, chinese, malay or indian foods, they have it all here! There is a long list of menu for you to choose from.

Oh, when I said it's affordable, it is really cheap for its portion and place. It costs only RM5.90 for a plate of fried rice. Of course, they have many varieties of fried rice too!

Just take a look at some of the photos below!! See them for yourself! =)

Drooling already? xD

[Anime] Kurau: Phantom memory


It is the year 2100, and on the colonized Moon, a project is under way to explore new aspects of energy. Amami Kurau is the daughter of the chief scientist on the project, and on her 12th birthday, she accompanies her father to the lab to observe the experiments. Then something goes awry, and Kurau is struck by twin bolts of light. In the aftermath, her father is dismayed to find that his daughter is no longer his daughter. Rather, her body is now home to two energy entities with fantastic powers.

(Source: ANN)


This animation is pretty old, introduced in year 2004 and it never really captured the attention of the audiences. The main reason is probably because of its common sci-fi/action genre, in which people might have the impression that it is just another hollow action; good-guy-chasing-bad-guy shows. Undeniably, the plot does revolve around that of chasing and being chased. However, such synopsis and classification do not give the anime justice as it comprises something more in-depth.

Kurau is an anime driven by strong character developments and emotional human-relationship themes. It does not fall on the romance/love category as the show does not focus only on such connection; instead, it shows various type relationships between the characters, from family, love to work. How the people deal with their pasts, presents and future and how they interconnect with each other. And also the attachment of this alien species towards humanity.

It is also amusing to watch how the creators use Rynax (a species in the show) to showcase the joy and solitary moments of having another loved one to share these with. Between this alien species, it reveals an emotion far beyond love; like a need to survive with each other, a co-existence. Without one another, no matter how wonderful one's life can be, the heart will always be empty; will always be lonely.

Though this anime does not have a long list of soundtracks, (in fact most of them have been repeated in every single episode) the producers did do a good job in choosing the right music. The ending theme, Moonlight, emits a powerful melody that evoke a certain sense loneliness within its symphony. Together with the song and the emotional storyline, the combination amplify the melancholy theme of the show; making the entire atmosphere really sentimental yet warm. It is the main song used in the anime that in my personal point of view, it does a good job in conveying the mood of anime right to the viewers. It hits you at the right place of your heart at the right moments.

The character designs are really realistic. And with the animation done by Studio BONES which has produced some prominent titles in the industry, the actions scenes are really smooth if not brilliant. Some of the scenery in the shows are really beautiful as well.

The pacing of the anime is good. Every single episode reveals a certain something, no time is wasted on unnecessary plots. At the end of the story, every loose ends will be tied up; every questions will be answered.

It has been a very long time since I have been moved by an anime so much. It is one of the most intriguing titles I have ever watched in my entire anime-watching life. I was looking for a sci-fi/mecha/actions anime only to find myself watching a deep and mature anime emphasized on the growth of the characters and their relationships.

Kurau: Phantom memory has given me plenty of surprises; and many questions to ponder on in life. Without a doubt, it is an anime that has a real, mature and in-depth plot unlike those fan-service, mindless animes to cater fanboys's perverted desires. In fact, Kurau is by far one of the most powerful main character I have ever come across in all the animes I watched, whether it is the principles, attitude, personalities of hers, they put me in awe.

It is definitely not a series where you could rush through and fast forward it. You might need to spend a bit of time to appreciate and understand the whole story, but it is all worthwhile in the end.

So if you a person who loves something in depth and meaningful, interested in character developments and powerful storyline instead of a hollow animes, this might be the right title for you!

Few things to note:
1. Though ANN categorized it as YURI theme. I don't even feel it or realize probably because they are talking about the need Rynax(alien species) to live and survive together with their fated partner.
2. The naming may be a bit weird for their characters, but watch on then you will know.
3. If you are not the emotional type of a person or just can't possibly connect, then you might not like it.
4. If you love BIG EYES, whiny voice, busty, pretty and submissive female anime characters, then this is also not for you. ^^ (And I hate those.)

The Silky Hair....


I let my hair grow just to chop them off later again. ==||
But anyways I really like short hair...

Light, easy, casual, fun and no pressure! WOOT!

They always tell you guys prefer girls with long hair, cause they are more feminine and girlish.

But I am sorry, I don't live for guys.
I live for ME and MYSELF.

*smiling proudly*

Social Networking Kills!


There are too many social networking sites nowadays!!
Unlike a lot of other people, I only keep one or two which I use it for more personal stuffs.
(I am not even really active in my own facebook...Getting a bit too complicated)

One of which I recently discovered is actually Tumblr. The straight-forward features and user-friendly dashboard really attract me a lot. Even the application for the phone is simple, making sharing very easy. So yes, I am currently using Tumblr as my more personal corner to share my thoughts.

Feel free to visit or even follow it if you want to, it's more of a personal space to me though, so please gentle with it. =)

How to save an Old Hi-Fi (Or NOT)


My ever faithful mini hi-fi that has served me for 10 years!

It is the first hi-fi I have ever owned and also the gift from my parents for scoring well for my UPSR back then.


Everything else is fine except that it can't play CD anymore. Actually this problem has appeared on and off, but this time it actually gave up totally.

I still collect original albums so... Guess that I need a replacement. *SOB*

Can anyone recommend me an inexpensive and decent mini hi-fi?

Thank you!
