curry leaves restaurant

CURRY LEAVES, 13531 40th Rd, Flushing, NY 11354
My rating: 3 (out of 5)
I went there on Sunday afternoon around 3pm. I ordered Asam Laksa, Hokkien Noodles, Satay, and some kind of deep fried pork thingy. Satay was tasty and moist. Not dry or chewy at all. Asam Laksa was so and so. Hokkien Noodles was just right. The pork was drowned with some kind of sweet sauce which overpowered the overall taste of the pork. I had to order rice in order to finish the pork. The Asam Laksa was slightly on the watery side but I can still taste the tangy fishy taste as it should be. That was actually the first time I ordered satay in many years. Why?...because I know it will never be as good as the one I would get in Malaysia. Nevertheless, I was surprised on how sweet and succulent all the meat were. Quite happy with the food and went home happy. Total cost was $32 for 2 people. Would I recommend this place to everyone? sure, just don't expect a fine dining type of service.

Krystle Warren and Kate McGarrigle



...yes, that's me with Krystle Warren and Kate McGarrigle at The Last Song of Summer 2010. Well, correct me if I am wrong but I do believe that's Kate McGarrigle. She was just about to go up the stairs, as seen on the back, when someone dragged her down to be in the pic with me.

Paradiso 2010 - Watermill Center

Shots taken over the weekend during the benefit for the Watermill Center. Didn't put a background music because the background sound of each performance or artwork was, I think, very interesting and somewhat inspires to superstitious feeling of "fear" even though the theme of the benefit was Paradiso as in paradise, I think. Part 2 will follow later.

July 4th, 2010 Fireworks - North Sea, Southampton.

Does it ever rain in New York?

Note the ugly plastic sheet behind the piano. I purposely didn't want to show it my previous posting. However, come to think about it, during the 2 weeks those pianos were out on the street, we didn't have any rain and it was hot as hell.

Fashion Show on the streets of NYC

The fashion industry is taking it to the streets. From New York City's Herald Square to Times Square, 32 full-on decked out mannequins can be seen "working it" along Broadway Avenue. The public art installation called "Sidewalk Catwalk" and designers involved include Tommy Hilfiger, Betsey Johnson, Donna Karan, John Bartlett, Maria Cornejo, Carlos Falchi, Prabal Gurung, Norma Kamali, Nanette Lepore, Rebecca Moses, Yeohlee Teng, Carmen Marc Valvo...just to name a few. Sorry but Kadazan Man was too lazy to figure who did which mannequin. Enjoy!










Play me I'm Yours

“Play Me, I’m Yours” is an artwork by British artist Luke Jerram. About 60 pianos were installed in public parks, streets and plazas. The pianos were there for any member of the public to play and engage with. Later the pianos will be donated to public schools around NYC.

big bambu

Went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art to check out an installation called "Big Bambu" which is made entirely from bamboo in the form of a cresting wave rising as high as... 50 feet above the roof of the museum. It is an ongoing construction that started from April 27 through Oct. 31 created by twin artists Mike and Doug Starn. It is supposed to be part sculpture, part architecture and part performance.
