Choc-Cheese-Toasted Sandwich

This is a SINFUL snack. Made solely to entertain your taste buds, and it will take approximately two hours of jogging at 6km/hr to burn it off your belly/hip/butt, so try this at home at your own risk!

What you need:

2 slices of sandwich breads (160kcal)
1 slice of cheddar cheese (290kcal)
20g of eating chocolate (300kcal). You may add more chocolate if you wish. I just used Cadbury Dairy Milk Choc.


Method:

1. Heat up the frying pan with medium-low heat, and start toasting the bread; but remember to toast only one side of each of the bread. These will be on the inside of your sandwich later. Take them off the pan and onto a plate.


2. On the toasted side of the bread, and put the cheese on it. Then break the chocolate into tiny pieces and spread them evenly on the cheese. Pile on the second slice of the toast. Now you have a sandwich.



3.Toss the sandwich back into the pan, and keep toasting until you get both sides of your breads to be as brown as you want them to be. While the sandwich is being toasted, the cheese and choc on the inside will melt and stick the two pieces of bread together, giving it a wonderful texture, flavour, and consistency.


4. Serve!


The outside of the sandwich is crunchy, and on the inside, its gooey, sweet, and of course, cheesy. Nice to be eaten when its still warm. For extra flavour and sin, you can toast the bread with some butter. But thats also maybe another half an hour on the treadmill.

Just What Malaysians Need!

Just What Malaysians Need!

#1. Drive 50km/h on the right lane and insists on staying on the same lane eventhough all five cars that have drove pass you on your left are honking and cursing at you.

#2. Putting up a helluva drama at McDonald's outlets all over Malaysia because they ran out of minion dolls.

#3. More construction sites for high-rise houses, shoplots, offices, etc. Each time a new building rises, its just uglier than the one made before it!

#4. Higher toll prices. Dey when are you guys going to stop collecting la?!

#5. People who squat on public toilet seats and leave their shoe prints on them.

#6. Laughing exaggeratedly while watching an English movie in the cinema with the intention to make it clear to others that you understood the dialogues. I kid you not that this do happen very more often than you think.

Once, I ended up yelling "Can you please not distract me?! Thanks!" at the couple which were sitting next to me because she and her stupid boyfriend were laughing so hard when nobody else is; over the stupidest pun lines. We were watching Riddick! Tell me if there really is a scene worth laughing your ass off in that movie!

#7. Yelling at random strangers who are just having fun because you are a sad and angry person.

#8. Tudung-short-sleeves-tight-skinny-jeans combo (especially when you are fat).

#9.Fuel-price hike!

#10. "Preferably chinese-speaking candidates" written in job advertisements. Really?! Geez.. I think I should make a whole separate post on this topic.

#11.Broken bridges, collapsed stadium and supermarket buildings...

This is as close as I could get

#12. Orange peeler. Who the hell needs an orange peeler?! What's wrong with peeling it with your fingers? It takes the same amount of time to peel an orange with this stupid peeler, or using fingers! This is not only not needed by Malaysian, but also not needed by the rest of the world's population.

It is just a filthy excuse to spend RM3.90 on two little
 plastic pieces that will end up staying in your kitchen's drawer forever.
#13. LED lights underneath the rear car plate numbers that blinks retardedly every time the car brakes. I don't know which soul came up with this idea.

Ultimately, I can't understand why would anyone even put this on their car...

#14. If both of you are just going to sit there and stare at your own phones, then why bother going out together anyway?

hewhewhew sneaky me...

#15. Shaking your phone to find random strangers on WeChat while you are in a surau. Like, really. Where is your respect? I know its a WeChat shake because I know what it sounds like.
I was a bit pissed off when I snapped this pic. This is when this girl was recording her audio message to be sent over WeChat
This is when she was listening to the audio message sent to her. For the love of God, you are in a surau, where you should be as quiet as possible to respect other jemaahs who are performing their prayer. Its so inappropriate on every level there are.
#16. Random strangers snapping your pictures while you were in public places without you even knowing it. kthxbye


I might add more to the list in the future!! :D

What's Wrong?

What is so wrong if I walk into a computer store and ask, "Do you sell keyboards for Acer Aspire One series?"

Yeah, I broke mine somewhere around last week. It's just me; no matter how many times I make a silly mistake, somehow my brain just can't frikking learn to not do it again the next time. I was watching a movie, and while I was at it, I had a big bottle of nail polish remover right next to the netbook... Wellll.. I don't think I need to say what happened next. 

In less than two minutes, I unplugged all power supplies, and disassemble the top part of the netbook. Nail polish remover dries up pretty quickly, but I had to make sure that it didn't sip to any other vital parts of the netbook; and luckily it didn't. Otherwise I'll forever live in the tormenting thoughts of how my two seconds of stupidity ruined my precious device... T_T

this is just how far I opened it, because the liquid didn't go any deeper

The acetone in the remover kind of detached some of the keys from the board, but nothing my false lashes glue can't hold together! :D Improvising guru

Acetone all dried up, screws screwed back in their places, and I tried to turn it on again. All worked well, up until when I tried to type in my Windows password...

No matter how many times I tried to type it in, it says that I'm typing in the wrong password. T_________T
I was convinced that I have probably ruined the ribbon thing that connects the keyboard to the system while I was frantically detaching it before.

I'm a master at confidently opening my electronic devices with my Made-in-China-six-pieces precision screwdriver set, always accompanied by the knowledge of not knowing if I can successfully, precisely, reassemble them back to normal. So this was also the case with my dear netbook.

So, while waiting to get my hand on a new set of keyboard, I'm using a friend's laptop, which runs on Linux (I get allergies at the mention of the word Linux), but I'll have to tolerate.

SO, today, after work, I went to a computer hardware shop and asked, "Do you sell keyboards for Acer Aspire One series?"

The answer that I got?

A confused look on the shop owner's face, followed by, "You can't just buy the keyboard, you'd have to take your machine here so that we can do it for you,"

Yeah, put that stupid face on and play dumb with me so that you can charge  RM300 for something that costs RM50. I know your trick, mf.

Yes, I maybe clumsy, I'm definitely not a geek, and I may not know how to disassemble the whole unit to bits then put it all back together into one functioning piece, but there's no tutorial that doesn't exist on Youtube, duh! Even a 10-year-old can learn how to change the keyboard of a laptop from Youtube.



I learned it through experience. Years ago, when I was running on an Asus K40AB, I broke my screen. I know it was just the the screen that was broken because when I attached the laptop to another screen, it worked fine. Sent in my laptop for repair, and the idiot who "fixed" it changed the whole motherboard itself into something garbage-can worth and charged me RM400. I don't know how to explain it in a technical language because I'm not a geek. But I know what I'm saying is based on facts; not based on my female-hormones-charged-instinct. :( But it was too late by the time that I learned the fact that I was, in fact, ripped-off.

So this guy at the computer shop I went to this evening, kept insisting, "You have to bring your netbook here, it needs to be sent to our computer workshop to get it done,"

Uhh.. Yeahh.. "What? It's just a broken keyboard. I can fix it myself because I know how to change my keyboard. I don't need your workshop. Thanks," and I left.

Mister, I know you must be really smart. Being an immigrant who worked hard to make your way in the country and to the point to own your own establishment in this country where our own citizen are complaining on how life is hard, lands are expensive, inflation is going crazy, etc; you just have to have good brains to go with it. But why try to cheat me over a simple stupid keyboard?

Or was it me that looked too dumb?

Anyway, when I came back home, I turned on my netbook again, and somehow the keys are working again. But I shall replace my keyboard anyway because it feels funny to type on the keys which I re-attached with my false-lashes glue. -_-u

Do you notice that some of the keys are bent downwards?
