His promo as below:

20 Feb 09 (Fri) 8.00pm - Penang Gurney Plaza Alfresco Area
21 Feb 09 (Sat) 3.00pm - 988 Chart Show @ Studio V One Utama
21 Feb 09 (Sat) 5.00pm - Sungai Wang Concourse
And guess what? Danell will be the host for his promos! Haha, hope those who go and see Danell will support Tor as well :)
He's not really like super good looking, but I really like the way he plays the piano. Quite some number of his songs are very nice as well. His latest album 'Munk?' was very well done. I would say I like most of the songs.
And next week, Danell will be having his last promo of his "Sharing" compilation album, making it a grand one, an unplugged live band jazz showcase at Wisma MCA on 27th Feb at 8pm! Those interested and free on that day, come join us! It's gonna be a superb interesting evening, because he will be doing something special. *excited* For more info, log on to www.danell-lee.net.
Difference in you and me.
You always say the wrong thing at the right time.
Well, different mindset I guess.

Restoran Ahwa is located at Jalan 222. Well, I think it's Jalan 222, as many people I know calls it the Jalan 222 Hokkien Mee instead of saying the name of the shop.
I've been here at least 5 times but this is my first time eating the vermicelli version. This was fantastic. The vermicelli soaked up all the sauce and aroma, very tasty indeed.
We ordered 1 small portion of 'cantonese style yee mee', it was so not nice. But others were fine.
Chicken Satay (RM7.50 for 15 pieces)
Tauhu Bakar (I like it, crispy with a lot of cucumber and bean sprout and peanut sauce inside) (RM1.50 per piece)
I can't remember how much the noodles cost. But, ahh, the satisfaction you get when your tummy is filled. Yum.
Restoran Ahwa Hokkien Mee
Jalan 222, PJ.
Directions: On the Federal Highway heading towards Klang, after you passed PJ Hilton on your left, keep left and exit at Jalan 222/Jalan Templer. Turn right at the traffic light under the flyover. Go straight and turn right at the second traffic light. You will be able to see a Shell petrol station on your right, and also the restaurant already.

Grandpa was admitted to the hospital. Just came back from visiting him. To be honest, the number of times I actually go to a hospital can be counted with my two bare hands. Not sure it's a good thing or bad though. Maybe I watched too much dramas, I tend to imagine a lot of 'negative possibilities' at the hospital, which I fear to come. Aih~
Went to 1U just now. Roses, hearts, love, sweetness everywhere. Aww... hao lang man oh... hou lum ar... I saw guys buying bouquets already! (on the 12th?!?)
My old sickness is back. I didn't sleep for the whole night again. And I did nothing. Hehehe! Ok, deprived of sleep now. Nite!
Rak Ter รักเธอ
by Tor Saksit
Album: Living in C Major
koie mai baang tee tee ter dtong gaan poot a-rai ok bpai
koie mai baang tee kam poot man mai yom dtrong gan gap jai
ทั้งที่พยายาม และไม่ว่าจะเตรียมตัว สักขนาดไหน
tang tee pa-yaa-yaam lae mai waa ja dtriam dtua sak ka-naat nai
meuan chan eng tee gam-lang pay-chern naa kwaam bpen jing
lae teung mae kaang nai pa-yaa-yaam poot ok bpai hai mot took sing
yaang tee dtang jai
* แต่มัน ก็เหมือนเคย ไม่ว่าจะเปิดเผยสักเท่าไร
dtae man gor meuan koie mai waa ja bpert poie sak tao-rai
meua dtong poot kam nan siang chan man gor haai bpai
** อ่านปากของฉันนะ ว่า (รักเธอ)
aan bpaak kong chan na waa ( rak ter )
อยากจะพูดอีกครั้ง ว่า (รักเธอ)
yaak ja poot eek krang waa ( rak ter )
lae ja bpen yaang nee gap ter mai waa naan sak tao-rai
mai dtong glua waa chan ja rak krai
mai dtong huang waa chan bplian hua jai
ฉันจะเป็นอย่างนี้ จะ (รักเธอ) ตลอดไป
chan ja bpen yaang nee ja ( rak ter ) dta-lot bpai
chan roo dee waa baang tee man gor doo meuan naa ram-kaan
dtae chan ja pa-yaa-yaam tee ja poot ok bpai hai mot took sing
hai mot tang hua jai
(ซ้ำ *, **)
แต่ว่ามัน ก็เหมือนเคย ไม่ว่าจะเปิดเผยสักเท่าไร
dtae waa man gor meuan koie mai waa ja bpert poie sak tao-rai
meua dtong poot kam nan siang chan man gor haai bpai
จะย้ำด้วยคำๆนี้ ว่ารักเธอ ไม่ยอมรักใคร
ja yam duay kam-kam nee waa rak ter mai yom rak krai
My CNY was quite well celebrated. KL-lang sure stay in KL only ler. Cut down on the visiting, but I did spend time with my secondary school mates and 'pink' friends. Had 5 lou sang throughout the 15 days! :) My family have the tradition of having dinner together on the 30th night, day 7th and chap goh mei. Day 7th was celebrated in my aunt's place, and I had a very RICH dinner on Chap Goh Mei.
Rich leh? So full. Samore got ice cream and cheesecake for dessert.
CNY over. No more excuses to be lazy. Hope it'll be a good year for me and for all of you out there :D Be healthy and happy! Appreciate and be grateful for what you have. You'll never know when it will be taken away from you. Expect the unexpected.

Chocolate Chocolate Cupcake
Moist and yummy! The steps are slightly complicated but the result is good! I feared Dorie's recipe before this due to my failed World Peace Cookie. But this is really a keeper! :) I skipped the glaze cuz the cupcakes were very sweet by itself already even when I cut 1/4 of the sugar! I accidentally melted the butter, but the result is still good! :)
Copied from masak-masak
For the cupcake
1 cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
1 stick (8 tbs) [113gm] unsalted butter, at room temperature
¾ cup caster sugar (I used 1/2 cup)
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
½ tsp pure vanilla extract
½ cup buttermilk (I used a mix of yoghurt and milk instead)
2 oz bittersweet chocolate, melted and cooled
For the glaze
3 oz bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 tbsp confectioners’ sugar, sifted
2 tbs cold unsalted butter, cut into 6 pieces
Getting Ready: Center a rack in the oven and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Fit the 12 molds in a regular-size muffin pan with paper muffin cups, or butter them with flour and tap out the excess.
To make the cupcakes:
Whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Working with a stand mixer, preferably fitted with the paddle attachment, or with a hand mixer in a large bowl, beat the butter at medium speed until soft and creamy. Add the sugar and beat for about 2 minutes, until it is blended into the butter. Add the egg, then the yolk, beating 1 minute after each addition and scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl with a rubber spatula as needed. Beat in the vanilla, then reduce the mixer speed to low and add half the dry ingredients, mixing only until they disappear. Scrape down the bowl and add the buttermilk, mixing until incorporated, then mix in the remaining dry ingredients. Scrape down the bowl, add the melted chocolate and mix it in with the rubber spatula. Divide the batter evenly among the muffin molds.
Bake for 22 to 25 minutes, or until the tops of the cakes are dry and springy to the touch and a knife inserted into their centers comes out clean. Transfer the muffin pan to a rack and let the cakes cool for 5 minutes before unmolding. Cool to room temperature on the rack before glazing.
To make the Glaze:
Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Transfer the bowl to the counter and let stand for 5 minutes.
Using a small whisk or rubber spatula, stir the confectioners’ sugar into the chocolate, followed by the pieces of cold butter. The glaze may be very thin at this point or may be perfectly spreadable. If it is too thin to spread or use as a dip, stir it over ice water for a few seconds – really less than a minute. With a small metal icing spatula, give each cupcake a crown of shiny ganache, and let the glaze set at room temperature (or in the fridge if you are in a hurry). If the ganache loses its gloss and you miss it, give the tops of the cakes a puff of hot air from a hairdryer right before serving.

Bibi is my dog. Yeah, not everyone knows I have a dog. It belonged to my relative, and we took it home 8 or 9 years ago. Now that we've moved to a place where we can't own it, we had to do something. No one we know wanted it, so we're left with no choice.
Yesterday the vet called and said SPCA won't take dogs more than 10 years old. Bibi is already an old grandma. Anyway, SPCA is having problems with overloaded dogs too. No one wanted it. We had two options, put it to sleep or let it wander as a stray dog.
Yeah, call me a murderer. I am, I feel like one. Dad wanted to let it wander, but I thought putting it to sleep was less cruel. Why? At least you don't have to worry whether is she still alive, is she hit by a car, is she starving, is she cold... At least she's with You now. To make you feel better, SPCA also do so, even to puppies.
Going back to the old house to clear up my stuff would be painful now. Previously I always ask 'Feed Bibi already ah?' now it's at the slip of my tongue, only to remember she's not there anymore. Planning to fast few days a week to make myself feel better.
R.I.P. my little baby. I'll see you when I see you :)

Maybe this small part of the dark blue wall as well... hmm what to do? What to do?
The view from my room. Nice? :p
My bed, with my dear Patrick :)
I have to say, I love my closet too! :p
With slide-able mirror... save space :)
Look like boutique boh? Colors category! :p
Again and again, I write the same thing over and over again. I just don't know what I really want to do? I'm scared to make the wrong choice. Well, blame all the bad experiences from people I know. I like baking and cooking, but can I do it as to the standard of fulfilling the customers' demands? Can I work in a hectic kitchen? (Imagine Gordon Ramsay oh god) I dislike management, but that's the cert I graduated from! I'm looking into so many different options which I don't even know if I suit it in the first place! Cake studio? Bread making? Hotel? Pastry? Or perhaps I don't suit kitchen at all? I even widen the scope to the entertainment line. Lol! Joke of the year deyh.
I know, I must try first. I just can't stop myself from thinking of the worst. Aih~
