Didn’t consume enough chinese sausages for lunar new year this time around. We usually eat at a family friend’s restaurant, but he has retired since then. And so my consumption this year slumped to just 1 dish.
The term “chinese sausage” is pretty generic. These sausages come in all shapes and sizes – even taste and names! Some are made with pork, others with duck liver and even some with chicken, beef, turkey, mutton and fish!
With the high fat content, these sausages usually don’t do wonders for your health. But the good things in life usually don’t. ^^.
Can you name every chinese sausage in this photo?
If you’re interested in the price, here’s a link to a large image.

The Petronas Twin Towers are the world’s tallest twin buildings to date. They tower over almost everything and anything in KL.
The twin towers were featured in a few movies. The most notable of which was Entrapment. Sean Connery and Catherine Zeta-Jones. Remember that movie?

Was quite amused when I read this at a toilet in Sunway Pyramid’s new wing.
Waterless Urinal. Press to wash yourself only.
Press to wash yourself only?!?
Having spent most of my grownup life outside Malaysia, I have very vague memories of visiting many touristy sites around Kuala Lumpur.
It was time to get reacquainted. So I took a day tour around Kuala Lumpur.

Surprise (It’s ?) Sushi!
Spotted at Jiyugaoka.
My initial reaction was, "びっくり寿司だよ！" ^^. What do you suppose the surprise is?
Spotted this at Uniqlo recently. They have a new line of women undergarments that also provides support and enhances one’s body lines. There’s currently only 1 type of camisole, but there are 2 versions for their shorts.

Jiyugaoka is along the Tokyu Toyoko Line which runs from Shibuya to Yokohama. It’s a pretty terrific line. Lots of interesting stops. Jiyugaoka is where the “osyare” go shopping. ^^.
Was out and about Jiyugaoka today. Part shopping, part experimenting with my new toy.
Can you guess what it is? Use your Byakugan and look closely. Sorry, no prizes to give away. Just bragging rights that you have good eyes.
