nuffnang says I got 37,365 hits for the keyword "Perodua Viva"

I think regular visitors may have noticed the one week old nuffnang thingamajig on the right side of this page. I'm trying out a new ad serving service. Haven't been served any ads thus far but I'll keep it up for a while until I decide whether it stays permanently or not.

Anyways they provide some small analytics data to every registered blogger and here's what I saw today (you can find larger versions of the pictures by visiting my flickr page).


And then I googled the keyword "Perodua Viva" to find that...

4th result.

I'm the 4th result in Google for Perodua Viva. Not too shabby but I didn't even write anything worth reading about that car :)

But seriously I never believed the nuffnang analytics page for a second. I don't even get those kind of hits in a month nevermind a day or two so I fired up my trusty Google Analytics and found...

Peaked at about 400 hits yesterday.

That's a more realistic figure. I hope someone from nuffnang reads this. Their analytics is a little whacked :)

Lim Meng Kee La Mian Xiao Long Bao

No time to do a proper posting so I'm digging up some very old pictures from Lim Meng Kee La Mian Xiao Long Bao located in Imbi. If you think the name Lim Meng Kee sounds familiar then you're probably thinking of the Lim Meng Kee which sells dried meat in Imbi. This la mian joint is located across the road from the Lim Meng Kee shop and that probably means they are under the same owner. There's also another branch that I'm aware of located near the original KTZ in Kepong.

Roadside stall, plastic chairs, not your regular la mian joint.

Hot and Sour Lai Meen (RM6.00)

Xiao Long Bao (RM6.00)

Chicken Chop Lai Mian (RM9.00)

This place is probably one of the cheapest places to satisfy your la mian and xiao loong bao cravings. Food isn't going to win any awards but it's really decent considering the price. Do have a try.

Perodua Viva

Just a little something for those people who are causing a slight traffic spike to I know you guys are looking for more information on the Perodua Viva but googling for "Perodua New Car" led you to my Myvi post from ages ago.

Please do check out this excellent write up from Chips Yap about the all new Perodua Viva.

The motortrader website also has a discussion going on and it's heating up.

No thoughts from me if anyone's interested. I'm just a little surprised that they didn't get rid of the Kancil after all. The Kelisa's gone though. Wonder when the Kenari's getting a send off.

Edit: The great paultan has done his article too. Checked earlier but it wasn't published yet.

The Long Awaited Visit to Restaurant Goon Wah, Jalan Kuchai Lama

In my previous post I mentioned that I was forced to take the day off. That's because I'm based in a government office. As they were closed for the Agong's Initiation the company forced us (contract workers) to take a mandatory leave. Permanent workers got a free leave! Haihh...

Anyway I really enjoyed my relaxing day off. ST took the day off to accompany me and we started the day off with going to Restaurant Goon Wah to sample their much talked about Fish Head Noodles. I've never stopped thinking of going to this place ever since reading about them in masak-masak and I've been there several times during the weekend only to find them closed. Well the fact is they are only open from morning till lunch on weekdays! Business looks like it's very good so that's why they probably don't need to work so hard.

On to the food!

Goon Wah Restaurant, Kuchai Lama
XO Fish Head Noodles (RM 14).

The smallest serving of their Fish Head Noodles serves 2 regardless of what they tell you :) It's a generous serving of thick mee hoon served with the usual suspects. The commendable thing about this dish is probably the fried fish of which there are plenty.

The soup has been described by some food bloggers as tangy and it definitely is. Probably a little too tangy (actually more like salty) for me though because I love me my Fish Head Noodles tasting like evaporated milk. All in all a pretty commendable dish though it's not really to my taste.

There's supposed to be some XO sauce mixed in with the noodles but it's impossible to detect. One wonders if it's really in there or not but this really is a minor complaint because it doesn't need the taste.

Goon Wah Restaurant, Kuchai Lama
Stout Chicken Wings (RM12).

Thinking that a single serving of Fish Head Noodles would not be enough for a glutton and a pregnant woman we ordered an additional serving of (Guinness) Stout Chicken Wings. Tastes like you would expect it to. It's pretty good but the Fish Head Noodle serving was so big we couldn't finish the Chicken Wings and had to doggy bag the rest.

Goon Wah Restaurant, Kuchai Lama
Claypot Lou Shi Fun (RM 7) and Chau Bak Kor (RM 7).

We also ordered two packs of take away noodles for my parent's lunch. Two small serving of noodles for two persons. To my surprise it cost me RM 7 each! That's incredibly expensive for a single serving. Granted they are quite big but really... RM 7, gosh!

Anyway the Claypot Lou Shi Fun was good. Their version is dry noodles with a delicious topping of minced pork and dried shrimps. The Chau Bak Kor wasn't that great but servicable :)

KLCC in High Dynamic Range

What do you guys think of this? It's my attempt at a HDR picture. HDR stands for High Dynamic Range and it's a photography technique that's uhh... I can't explain it very well so if you're interested do Google for it. Also make sure you check out this guy... as far as I'm concerned he's the grandmaster of HDR. His pictures of KL are amazing.
