found out this morning my friend bought some fish from a philippines supermarket and forgot to bring back to long island. so, i decided that i should fry one of them for dinner later and only then i realized that it was actually my favorite fish back home. i think its ikan lumahan. there is such thing as ikan lumahan right? or is it ikan kayu? i don't know. i may get the name all screwed up. i don't even know what they call it in english. so anyway, i was actually drooling thinking about it all day long at work. on my way home, i decided to stop by the chinese supermarket to replenish my own supply of soy sauce and chilli sauce. next mission look for ikan basung:)
supply of my favourite condiment to go with my fish.
time to stink up the whole house.
some steamed broccoli to go with rice and fish
while waiting for my fish to get done
chow time...its been a while since the last time i had this fish.

went to watch equus the other day. its a story about a psychiatrist who attempts to deal with a young man who has a “religious” interest or what seems like a sexual fascination with horses. it also tells us the story from the psychiatrist’s point view about the boy’s fascination with horses which to him seems exciting compared to his dull and mundane life as a psychiatrist; an overly religious mother who reads the bible everyday to the boy thus resulted the juxtaposition of horses with god; a father who I think is an atheist deeply disturbed by his son’s interest with the bible.in short, it is about a boy who sees the horses as god-like figures. plus all the hoopla about daniel radcliffe, who plays the lead character in the movie harry potter, plays the troubled boy who gets to act in the play in his birthday suit. by the way, i have to say that he looks very short in real life. Anyway, sure there is nothing sexual about the nude scene but nevertheless, I don’t think this play will ever make it to malaysia not only because of the nudity but with the obvious injurious treatment towards religions and cult-like storyline which is a big no-no in malaysia. however, glad that I went to see it. apart from the fact that I dozed off ( only for two seconds ) in the middle of the show which I blame on the japanese food i had at hagi and couple pitcher of beer, at least, I can say that I have seen the revival. Someone told me that they obviously didn't spend a lot of money on sets and props which is true because they only have 4 big cubes on the stage which they use as a bed, chair etc, silver-like horse head and probably gym membership for all the actors who played the horses. they obviously uses big names such daniel radcliffe and richard

have to support the economy by buying more oil to heat up your home, either that or you will freeze to death in the winter. my mom asked me one time if we could just use candles to keep ourselves warm...boy, i wish. had to buy few gallons of diesel for my friend's house to keep the heater running while he is away. why? don't want all the pipes to freeze and burst, and create bigger and extensive damage in the house. and yes, the gas tank is outside right in the middle of the yard.
in that case, we should stop using the term "kadazan-dusun". unless, there is an inter-ethnic union between a kadazan and a dusun man or woman, then we can call their offspring "kadazan-dusun". hmmm...so much for trying to be politically correct.
