Salam Ramadhan 2016

Salam pertengahan Ramadhan 2016 buat rakan-rakan mayaku yang dihormati sekalian. Amacam puasa kalian setakat ni? Seronok? Mesti la seronok, bulan puasa mana boleh tak seronok? Meheheh...

Chai dan Samsul adalah 2 daripada 23 watak rekaan krew BOTK (Buasir Otak : The Komik) saja, tiada kaitan dengan yang hidup mahupun dengan yang sudah tiada. Nak kenal dengan watak-watak BOTK yang lain, dan nak baca komik-komik dari krew BOTK yang lain juga? Bolehlah anda visit dan like sekali page BOTK di SINI ;3
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Pasaram (short form for Pasar Ramadhan) ialah sebuah pasar makanan halal and ready-to-eat yang ada bermacam jenis juadah berbuka puasa dijual di sini. Apa yang membezakan Pasaram dengan pasar malam di bulan-bulan biasa tu ialah, di Pasaram, kita tidak akan nampak siapa-siapa makan atau minum sambil membeli makanan di sini (hehehe, biasanya tak ada la, biasanya), dan Pasaram juga lebih mengutamakan penjualan makanan halal yang melegakan perut yang sedang kelaparan serta tekak yang sedang kehausan. Barang-barang lain seperti ubat-ubatan tradisional, bahan-bahan mentah atau non-edible items seperti pakaian, mainan, bahan-bahan bacaan dan lain-lain tu tidak begitu kelihatan di sini (macam tak ada je). Target audience/customers bagi sesebuah Pasaram ialah, fasting Muslims. Baru-baru ini aku ada pergi ronda-ronda sambil mencari juadah berbuka (merangkap sahur sekali) di Pasaram Pokok Petai, Perlis. Antara juadah-juadah yang boleh didapati di sini adalah seperti berikut...,

Murtabak yang dikirim Chai tadi tidak dilupakan Samsul (hahaha). Aku tak minat murtabak, maka aku tengok je ;3
Popia basah dan minuman-minuman sejuk seperti air oren, lengkong, jagung, teh bunga dan laicikang. 
Otak-otak dan Sata.
Dari kiri: Udang sanggul, popia goreng dan... aku tak pasti nama dia apa, sejenis samosa la kot... hihu. Udang sanggul sedap, beli sikit...
Bakar-bakar pulak, daging bakar, perut bakar dan ikan Ketuka bakar.
Nasi kerabu ulam, ayam percik dan lauk-pauk beraneka jenis.
Ikan-ikan bakar dari jenis Tilapia, Keli dan Kembung.
Beraneka jenis lauk-pauk. Tapau sini je untuk lauk sahur nanti.
Gulai Keli dan ayam masak santan (tak pasti nama masakan ayam ni apa).
Kentang pusing goreng taruk sos keju, mayonnaise dan cili sos. Tergoda aku, beli dua cucuk. Lembut di dalam, rangup di luar, yang ni langsung tak liat macam biasa beli kat pasar malam, ohsem~ ;3
Cucur udang (atau dalam loghat Utara: Coqdang) dan kuah kacangnya.
Ayam goreng ala kepsi, bahagian badan dan leher.
Ayam goreng ala kepsi: bahagian peha, kepak dan pinggul (ya pinggul, aku tak nak sebut montot ayam). Tergoda aku, beli seketul...
Minuman sejuk berais yang menggamit para pembeli: Asam boi, sirap selasih dan teh bunga. Sungguh tergoda aku dengan teh bunga yang ada bunga tu. "Teh bunga satu, RM2 ya? Nak satu~" ;3

Sekian saja entri kali ini berkenaan Pasaram di Pokok Petai, Perlis. Pasaram di tempat kalian pula bagaimana? Banyak makanan yang menarik tak? Atau, kalian tidak tertarik dengan juadah-juadah yang dijual di Pasaram sana? ;3

Selamat berpuasa, bertarawih, membaca Al-Quran, menjaga tingkah-laku dan tatasusila dengan sebaik-baiknya di bulan penuh barakah ini. Semoga dapat kita terus istiqamah dalam beribadah dan menjaga tatatertib kita seperti seorang Muslim yang baik di bulan-bulan yang lain juga :)

P/S: Kenapa aku blur-kan wajah-wajah mereka yang ada di dalam gambar-gambar yang aku snap tu? Jawapannya, aku pentingkan privacy orang lain yang mana aku tidak meminta/mendapat keizinan mereka untuk mengambil gambar mereka. Sekiranya ada wajah-wajah yang "termasuk" di dalam gambar yang aku snap secara sengaja atau kebetulan saja, aku akan kasi blur. Sekian ;3

Old Box of Joy

L.E.G.O... what does this spell? Yes, it's LEGO! My old, long lost, box of joy! It's been several decades since I last played with my box of LEGO:BASIC!! Oou-eMu-Gee, hisashiburi da ne, LEGO-chan!! X'3


 Okay, minggu lepas aku ada masuk store rumah sebab nak cari anak kucing aku yang perlu dikeluarkan dari situ untuk dipindahkan ke tempat lain yang lebih sesuai (luar rumah), and so, aku terjumpa sekotak LEGO:BASIC aku yang dulunya menjadi mainan kesukaan aku sewaktu berumur bawah sembilan tahun. And to my surprise, keadaannya masih baik (tapi isinya tak cukup la, ada items yang dah hilang) dan isinya nampak seakan-akan masih baru. Oh how nostalgic, what a treasure! Arigatou yo okachan, otochan!! I'll keep this old box of joy somewhere safe and clean *sobs* X'3

Dulu (late 1980's to early 1990's), harga large pack LEGO:BASIC original ni lebih kurang RM20'ish gitu je, sekarang dah jadi beratus ringgit. Time flies, people grow up and grow old, and our currency strength degrades with the passing of time, but this LEGO is almost unaffected by the passing time, tak pudar, tak rapuh, cuma kotak kertasnya saja yang nampak agak dimamah zaman. Betapa tingginya kualiti bahan mainan ini. Superb desu ( TT w TT )...
The other side of the box, showing that this box of joy is enjoyable for both little girls and boys. 
Sisi kotak yang ada info saranan umur minimum (from age 5).
Sisi kotak yang ada info berkenaan LEGO items yang ada di dalam BASIC pack ni. Item yang berupa macam penyendal pintu warna kelabu tu berfungsi untuk meleraikan cantuman LEGO pieces yang ketat. Kalau takdak benda ni, memang masalah besar. Hahah~
Turut disertakan sekali catalog iklan jenis-jenis LEGO packs lain yang available in the market during the late 1980's and early 1990's, dan juga catalog guide LEGO:BASIC (age 5 - 12) untuk membina beberapa struktur bangunan dan kenderaan yang disarankan. Nak buat apa-apa struktur objek lain pun boleh, ikut creativity sendiri. Jyeahhh~ ;3
Catalog iklan untuk LEGO products yang lain. Dari umur bayi sampai la ke remaja umur 16 tahun boleh main LEGO baq hang... hohoho. Nama LEGO pack untuk yang remaja tu ialah LEGO:TECHNIC dan LEGO:MODEL TEAM. Canggih siot untuk zaman 1990's, siap boleh bergerak (motorized) dan jadi control center yang diprogram untuk memegang pen dan lukis pattern tertentu, dan terima arahan untuk bina apa-apa struktur lain, macam robot. Perghhh..., tu level LEGO zaman early 1990's, yang zaman sekarang ni punya pulak confirm la lagi canggih berganda-ganda, harga dia pun confirm canggih siot berganda jugak. Nak tahu lebih lanjut, sila google sendiri, hahaa~ X3
My LEGO:BASIC (large pack), and what's left of it. Hahaa... ok, banyak la jugak yang tak hilang ;3
It has been so long, gaiz... terharu aku melihat korang semula... *sobs*
Main LEGO sekejap di kala weekend petang ni... LoL (for the purpose of making this blog entry actually, hahaha~). Punya la aku suka buat helikopter ni dulu... owh my innocent childhood memories of LEGO came flooding back into my current adult mind. Sure miss those times...
Helicopter pujaan hatiku suatu ketika dahulu. Dulu mana la aku kenal internet, camera digital pun takdak..., sekarang la masanya aku nak cerita pasal LEGO aku kat dalam blog. Kanak-kanak zaman dulu bebas dari pengaruh internet dan media sosial. LoL! X3
Posing dengan background merah gelap pulak...
Ni lagi satu struktur feveret aku dulu, kapal terbang.
Plain's plane is plain awesome, cer sebut. Hehe. Sorry pics dah mula jadi blurry semacam with bad lighting cuz waktu ni dah lewat petang, aku pulak jenis tak suka nak tangkap gambar guna flash atau buka lampu. I prefer natural lighting when taking photographs, I've got my reasons for this. Huhuh... nanti-nantilah aku upgrade digicam...
Okeh hari dah gelap, masa untuk merongkah dan meleraikan hasil binaan menggunakan penyendal pintu alat khas untuk merongkah LEGO.
Baiklah kalian, sila masuk semula ke dalam kotak dan berehatlah sehingga aku ada mood dan masa lagi untuk meluangkan masaku dengan kalian. Mungkin aku akan menggunakan kalian untuk mencari inspirasi di lain masa. Apa-apa pun, it's nice to see you gaiz again after so long, and knowing that you are still in good condition made my day :'3

Alright, that's it for this entry about my long lost, old box of joy. Korang (atau anak-anak korang) suka LEGO? :3

Personal Anime Review #9

Tis the weekend, and this year's Labour Day falls on this Sunday, and so this Monday is "CUTI", hohoiiii~ ;3

Salam, hello and konnichiwa again to all of you kawaii and sparkly kirakira anime lovers out there~ Minna genki? Kyo mo atsui ne, Mereshia-jin tachi~ (Everyone OK? Today's hot also, isn't it? Fellow Malaysians~) (^~^;)ゞ

Yosh, hisashiburi ja no? (Right, been quite a while eh?). It has been a year since my last anime review of 10 anime series/movies packed in 1 entry, so, here are 10 more interesting anime series/movies for you anime admirers of all ages out there to watch and to enjoy during your free time, or whenever you feel like you need some instant inspiration to spice up your mundane life packed with robot-like daily routine of work/studies and household chores.

Oh hey, before you continue reading this entry, allow me to remind you that this entry is specifically made for the eyes and minds of those who appreciate anime and would spend their free time after work chilling while watching some awesome anime on their PCs, laptops or mobile devices in search of inspiration, instead of... say, watching some other shows on TV, or going fishing, or reading novels, or playing games, or blogging about their daily lives, or chilling out at the cinema or some "hipster cafe", or going out bowling with friends, and doing other etc etc common hobbies and free-time activities out there, okies? To each, their own ;3 

Saa-tte-tto (now then), fellow anime fans, if you've already watched any of these before, do tell me how you feel about them in the comment section below, ne~ ^^

Amagi Brilliant Park
Info & download here
Genre: Comedy, Romance, Magic
Creator: Kyoto Animation, Sentai Filmworks
Vintage: 2014
Type/length: 13 episodes
Personal rating: 7.5/10

P.O.V: Have you ever visited a rather disappointing amusement park? How would you feel if you are suddenly given the task to manage a failing amusement park and bring it back to life, filled with happy children and parents having the time of their lives? "Good management" is the key to the success of this incredibly hard task of a devoted park manager. Making sure that everybody is happy is definitely NOT easy, nearing impossible! ;3 

Shokugeki no Souma
Info & download here
Genre: Tournament, School, Shounen
Creator: J.C.Staff, Sentai Filmworks
Vintage: 2015
Type/length: 24 episodes (with OVA and sequel)
Personal rating: 7.5/10

P.O.V: Another interesting and cunning anime with a cooking show theme! Let the never-ending, fierce (and mind-boggling) cooking battles begin! Beware of the rather unnecessary *cough* lewd *cough* scenes though... Overall, I'm amazed with the idea of each dish! They've done their research well! X3
 
Akatsuki no Yona
Info & download here
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Romance, Fantasy, Shoujo
Creator: Studio Pierrot
Vintage: 2014
Type/length: 24 episodes (with OVA)
Personal rating: 7/10

P.O.V: Honestly this anime has a rather strong Korean aura in it. It's almost like watching a certain Korean historical-fiction-drama series involving mythical creatures (in this case, dragons) fighting alongside humankind to uphold justice. Mixed emotions are involved in this piece, because the 'supposed antagonist' is not all that horrible of a guy. 
 
BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad
Info & download here
Genre: Drama, Music, Comedy, Shounen, Slice of life
Creator: Madhouse
Vintage: 2004
Type/length: 26 episodes
Personal rating: 6.5/10

P.O.V: A rather old piece, old but kewl. American influenced, Japanese trying to be American, you might say. There was a time when American music and pop-rock culture dominated the minds of most young, rebellious J-teens. I sure enjoyed watching them rebellious J-teens speaking "American English" in this anime. Heheheh ;3

Higashi no Eden
Info & download here
Genre: Action, Sci-fi, Drama, Comedy, Romance, Thriller
Creator: Production I.G
Vintage: 2009
Type/length: 11 episodes (with 2 movies)
Personal rating: 8/10

P.O.V: THIS! This is rather mind-boggling, and addictive, and 'techno-ish'. Watching this can be a good way to exercise a human brain, as it makes one think of a few critical real-life issues from different perspectives. You'll be surprised. Watch this and be entertained, and surprised. Do not be fooled by the rather cute and innocent-looking, lovey-dovey main characters on the anime poster. Believe me, this anime is not an 'easy-going/easy to digest' type of anime. Most likely, at some point, you might question your own sense of justice after watching this.

Hataraku Maou-sama
Info & download here
Genre: Comedy, Demons, Fantasy, Romance, Shounen
Creator: Satoshi Wagahara, White Fox Studio
Vintage: 2013
Type/length: 13 episodes
Personal rating: 7.5/10

P.O.V: One word, FUNNY. The majestic "Devil king" and his "Knight" trying to cope with the humble, modern (but mundane) mortal world is a very interesting idea. I didn't know it could be this appealing. The plot, the script, the twists and all are just ROTFL, OMG I seriously laughed at some scenes! Majide (seriously)~ X3
  
Tiger & Bunny
Info here
Genre: Action, Super Power, Sci-fi, Comedy, Mystery
Creator: Sunrise
Vintage: 2011
Type/length: 25 episodes (with 2 movies and prequel)
Personal rating: 7.5/10

P.O.V:  Okay, I admit, what drove me into taking a peek into this anime in the first place was the abundance of T&B related fan-arts popping out among the art communities who are into Japanese anime and manga. I wuz like wuuutt? Tiger & Bunny? Tora to Usagi? What's with all this hype about these two men? And the characters are mostly flashy and sassy-looking and oooh okay they are all super heroes with unique super powers, fighting daily crimes while appearing on a "real-time" TV show, and each of them heroes has their own... sponsors?. Hmmm... alrighty... *grabs popcorn and soft drink* X3

One Punch Man
Info & download here
Genre: Action, Comedy, Parody, Sci-fi, Seinen, Super Power, Supernatural
Creator: Madhouse
Vintage: 2015
Type/length: 12 episodes (with one OVA)
Personal rating: 8.5/10

P.O.V: Phenomenal. Love it. You don't get to see this kind of anime often. I definitely want more of this. And that is all I have to say about this one. ONE PUUUNCH!!! End. *XDDD*


 Folktales from Japan 
Info & download here
Genre: Historical, Kids, Supernatural
Creator: Tomason
Vintage: 2012
Type/length: 211 episodes and still airing, ongoing...
Personal rating: 7/10

P.O.V: The title pretty much sums it all. Folktales from Japan, Nippon no Mukashibanashi. Each episode of this anime series is packed with 3 individual, loose, and different stories. Each story is special, and drawn differently from the other. The narrators, however, are the same in every story. I learned quite a lot of Japanese folktales just by casually watching this whenever I feel like it, and that is so cool. I'm thinking, Malaysian folktales should be compiled and presented in this manner too. Remember that time, sometime ago in the early 90's, when there was that Sang Kancil 2-D animated series showing almost daily on RTM, TV 1? That was precious. 

Itoshi no Muko
Info & download here
Genre: Comedy, Slice of life
Creator: DLE
Vintage: 2015
Type/length: 25 episodes (with OVA and 1 movie)
Personal rating: 7/10

P.O.V: Overwhelming cuteness. I just love watching this kawaii inu (cute dog) with a "junjou otome gokoro" (a pure woman's heart), named Muco. Watching Muco just calms my nerves and lifts my spirits by "shooing away" all of my negative and killing intent. It's practically a therapy. Yes, simple, easy-going/easy to digest, super cute anime interest me too ;3
