Its more than a drink

Beer can be divided into one of two groups. All beer falls into one of these two categories - Ale or Lager. Ale yeasts flocculate at the top of the fermentation tank. They generally thrive at temperatures between 60 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit. Lager yeasts are more successful at lower temperatures, typically 46 to 55 degrees Fahrenheit and flocculate closer to the bottom of the fermentation tank. Lager yeasts also tend to ferment more aggressively, leaving behind less residual sweetness and flavor than ales. The brewing techniques of each are as important as the yeast used.
Besides that, lagers are also clean, refreshing beers with typically light aroma and flavor. They are invariably served cold and can pair easily with a wide variety of food meanwhile Ales are complex, flavorful beers. Many are served closer to room temperature and contain rich aroma and flavor. Their complexity makes pairing a more selective, but highly rewarding, task. Anyway, I prefer a chilled Bud..

During the holiday, I watched several movies and decided that among all of the movies, the A-Team was one of the best for the time being (besides Ironman 2 and Prince of Persia). I enjoyed the show from the moment it starts until the end. There are several reasons that help to make the movie a success. One of the reasons is the story line and how the story evolves. Besides that, the characters in the story connected well with each other. Therefore, people that watch it will never get bored because surprise plot existed in every scene and it is strengthen by the comedy element. This is a proof that the director knew how to manipulate the audience mind. In other word, two thumbs up for The A-Team. So dude, go and buy the DVD!!hahahahahahaha

It’s not long before the premier league will kick off again and the fans will start to debate about the strongest team and who will win the trophy. Arsenal is one of the ferocious team in the name list and consist of unbelievable players for example Vermaelen and Fabregas.

For Arsenal, the team faced a lot of change in terms of new faces among its player, for example, Gallas is no longer with them and that’s great!! Because to me, Wenger rely too much on Gallas and that made Gallas arrogant because he knew Wenger need him to strengthen the centre back and therefore his discipline issue arise.

In my opinion, Gallas is one of the burdens that Arsenal kept for a long time. I can’t deny that his experience is very important to teach the young one, however it is time for Arsenal to move on without him. I hope the new squad could cope with the other giants for example Manchester city, Manchester United, and Chelsea.

'Hanging Out' with Kolo mee

It’s been a while since I last wrote something after I arrived in Kuching. I am too busy with my daily life doing errands for my family. Before I start, I would like to wish all of you guys out there happy holiday and please enjoy your holiday smartly before we meet with the new subjects for the upcoming semester.

Okay, this time, I would like to talk about food. Well, I got the idea during my outing session and I realized that I really love to eat. I had (noodle) Kolo mee with ‘merah and cabik kasi banyak’( Kuching’s symbolic delicacy) at the nearest coffee shop on my first day in Kuching.

I enjoyed it very much because the taste of the noodle and its ingredient were mixed together and the outcome are the perfect balance of mince pork, noodle, barbecued pork, vegetable, the vinegar, and the smell of the mouth watering aroma. So guys, come to Kuching and look for Kolo mee and I assure you that you will experience something new in your life. The list below contains some of my recommended place in Kuching for you to come and taste their delicious Kolo mee.
