earth hour - new york city

dragged my sick arse out of bed this evening to take pics of the Empire State building doing their thing for the Earth Hour. watched the lights turned off from the 40th street stop on the number 7 train.
then headed to Gantry State Park to watch it turned back on.

then i realized that something else came back on right next to me. it was the famous pepsi-cola sign that used to be on top of a bottling factory not far from the park. i think the factory was shut down in 1999 and the building was demolished. however, the city wanted to keep the iconic symbol and transferred it to its current location. pretty cool. have to drop by some other day when the weather is a bit warmer and check it out . it was a bit chilly out there tonight.


ikan masin

lately i've been salivating for salted fish with pineapple. plus i am looking for a dish to cook for easter dinner next weekend. mom told that she cooked it this past christmas and been thinking about it ever since. so, i gave it try today. it was good but i think the salted fish is a bit strong. next time , i'll cut the salted fish slightly smaller and more vege like bamboo shots or jack fruit.

Philadelphia Flower Show - Part 1

Kadazan Man got the chance to go The Philadelphia International Flower Show, in Philadelphia, PA last weekend. It is an annual event produced by The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in early March. It is the "largest indoor flower show in the world" attracting more than 250,000 people annually. The show features large scale gardens, which range from elaborate landscaped displays to individual and club entries of a prize horticultural specimen. Each year there is an official theme which serves as the inspiration for most exhibits. The exhibits are submitted for judging in many categories, and are highly competitive.

If you friend is out of town and ask you to water this plant, you better say "no" to that. Find out in the next pic.
