Johnny's Restaurant

StephenJohnny’s Restaurant have been in JUSCO, Seremban 2 for quite sometime but this the first time we (mum, younger sister, niece and myself) been there for lunch. We reached there around 11:50am.

We have the steamboat set for 4 persons and stay around for 1 hours 15 minutes enjoying the foods.

After lunch we walked around the shopping complex, window shopping. The stage set up for Hari Raya Celebration caught my attention and I decided to take a snap shot of it.


Later we bought a box of ice cream, a loaf of bread, some vegetables and left at 3.00PM

2408 For Caroline

GiftWith this on my hands I walked in her office. Caroline may not surprise to see me as I already informed her that I will come over to see her today. What she may surprised is to see these gifts!

Those moment she noticed the moon cakes box, straight away she recognised it! Why so? Well… this is because her sister, Tina was in this business too… so it not surprise if she knew it is mway moon cakes Smile

As she saw me walked closer, she asked,  “For me?” I nodded my head agreed. She then asked from whom, I said it is from me.

She took the flowers and looked at it, smiled and walked out from the counter and stand near me.

“These for?” I heard her asking. I said, “Today is 24th August…” she said, “And?” I told her that last 2 years… on the same date she have sat in front of her computer, logged in Rankstudio and have commented on my blogs for the first time! (24082006)

She then said, “So this is 2nd years Anniversary!!?” Of course it is! She then said I can remembered ya… but I said that not really that I can remember, it just that when I have checked through all my previous blogs in Rankstudio only then I knew!

She suddenly spread her arms wide apart and come to hug me! I was stunned and surprised for a moment  but basic instinct automatically told me that I should opened my arms wide to accept her hug too! I heard one of her colleague said “So lucky” Smile I also think so. After what I have done, don’t you think so I deserved the hug? Beside…  Do you think you can easily get Caroline to hug you ah? Wink If for no reason…..

She take a look at the flowers again, touch it… and said, “Are these real flowers?” I answered yes and she smelled on it deeply…. I asked her if she will be free tonight as I can wait for her at Starbuck.

“I don’t think so. It will quite late after work. I will call you tomorrow. You tomorrow no work right?”, I heard her saying this. I told her that I was not working tomorrow and looked at her… then I asked if she like to take some pictures with me. She said not in the office area as her colleagues was around.

Then she looked at my T-shirt) “Hmm…! Dogs Of Malaysia!!!” She said. That moment I was wearing a black T-shirt that contain 20 characters of dogs. This T-shirt is a free gift from HSBC Bank when I claimed the  credit card points. I asked her “So which one is you?” And she moving her fingers to search for it …. Smile I looked at it and help her pointed it to the “Playful” character. “Hmm… Playful?” She then nod her head to agree.

As I walked to the shop entrance/(exit) she accompany me. “So… It have been 2 years! How fast time flies” I gave a pat on her shoulder and said, “There is an important message inside the moon cakes box. You can share the moon cakes with your colleague loh!” I walked away.

When I am inside the car, around 6:35PM she SMS to said sorry as she can’t talk longer with me as her colleagues are all there today, and it is not nice to see at her work place and she said she will call me tomorrow. I replied her saying it is ok and not a problem Smile Hmm….. I wonder what she will think about the poem I have specially written for her?

Definitely after today…. I will remembered her hug for a very long time…..

2408 For Caroline

You may have asked, why I gave her the moon cakes? If you have read the poem above then you will know the answer. Me good in writing poem? When you read this poem what do you think? Sentimental and romantic?  (Many year backs I have written some poems but those women that have read it never know how to appreciate it. Then I have stopped writing for many years…. )  At least from what I have done today… Caroline did appreciated it. I can feel it. Thanks for being a friend!

Beside reading the comment from Rankstudio members, you can also read the comment by other bloggers. Listed below are the comment that I have gathered when I posted the same message to other blog site.

GMNIMan said ==> I am a genius. I can read every word which is written! Watch out world!

Weird_World ==> I thought I learnt this fact like years ago, that human brain doesn’t read every word that comes in front of it…Try to make a line of two similiar “looking” words, and then reading the line, you will get confused at the pronounciation… Try it, it is not a science experiment, just something we all get to learn when we read… Words which look alike, fools our brain into thinking that they are same… And I don’t think I needed Cambridge to tell me that… Smile Adious

Hacked Victim Made Final Phone Call To Dad, Then Died

Filed under: Blog,KTAR,RankStudio,Wangsa Maju — Tags: , , , , — Stephen @ 4:01 pm

IPOH: In his last moments and bleeding profusely, 18-year-old college student Lee Khian Yip called his father and told him to be calm.

He then told his dad he had been hacked in the head and hands.

“I heard a commotion in the background and my son shouting ‘Please get someone to send me to the clinic, I can’t stand it anymore’ and then we were cut off,” said Lee Mook Kwai.

“Later, my wife made another call to my son and a nurse who picked up the phone said he has passed away,” said the 55-year-old retired manager.

Khian Yip, a first-year accountancy student at Tunku Abdul Rahman College (KTAR) in Kuala Lumpur was with a friend when two men on a motorcycle attacked him.

He and the other student had just finished their dinner at a food court in Jalan 27/27B in Wangsa Maju and were walking back to their hostel at TAR Villa when the assailants struck.

Khian Yip, a former student of the SMJK Sam Tet here and a KTAR scholar, was said to be a promising student and had scored 11As in the SPM examination.

His mother, Lim Lee Ling, 43, was clearly distraught. She cried hysterically as she made preparations for her son’s wake at their home in Taman Cahaya Tasek here.

Khian Yip will be cremated at the Kek Lok Si Crematorium in Bercham here tomorrow.

In Kuala Lumpur, Sentul OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Rodzi Ismail said police have classified the case as murder and were hunting down the killers said to be in their 20s.

Second Student Slashed In Robbery

Phang Kar Wei
KTAR student Phang Kar Wei, 23, at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital here yesterday. Phang was slashed three times and assaulted by snatch thieves in the incident in Taman Melati last Saturday.

KUALA LUMPUR: A second Tunku Abdul Rahman College (KTAR) student fell victim to robbres just minutes after first-year accountancy student Lee Khian Yip was hacked to death in Wangsa Maju here on Saturday.

Phang Kar Wei, 23, was repeatedly assaulted and slashed three times on his hands and neck by two men on a motorcycle at 8.45pm in Taman Melati, some 2km from Wangsa Maju.

Police believe the same robbers were behind both incidents.

Met at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital yesterday, Phang said he was walking back to his condominium from the Taman Melati LRT station about 1km away when he saw two men, aged between 18 and 20, standing beside a motorcycle.

“When I walked past them, one of them asked me for directions to get to Kelana Jaya but I said I was not sure and kept on walking.

“His friend then asked me if he could borrow my handphone to make a call as his pre-paid credit was used up.”

Phang said he ignored him. The Information System Engineering student from Kampar said both the men followed and cornered him.

Phang Kar Wei
GOING INTO DETAILS: Phang relating his ordeal to Yew at Kuala Lumpur Hospital yesterday.

“One held me while the other threatened me with a parang. When I refused to hand over my money, he slashed my neck, took my RM1,000 laptop and the RM2 in my wallet.”

Phang managed to run away but the men caught up with him on their motorcycle.

“They slashed me again and repeatedly assaulted me,” he said.

Wangsa Maju MP Yew Teong Look said the area was prone to crime and hoped the authorities would ensure the situation did not get worse.

Sentul OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Rodzi Ismail said police set up a task force on Saturday to hunt down the suspects and urged the public to help them in nabbing those responsible.

“We believe the two could have been involved in more cases in the district and in the Klang Valley,” he said.

On Saturday, 18-year-old Lee Khian Yip was walking back to his hostel at TAR Villa when the assailants struck at 8.30pm.

Despite bleeding profusely, he called his retired manager father Lee Mook Kwai, 55, from his handphone and told him that he had been slashed.

Khian Yip was a promising student and had scored 11As in his SPM (Extracted from 1st, August, 2006)

My Comments

When I came across these news, I have a shock, really shocked as I just stayed quite near to the areas. I am sure that when everyone read these news, first question will come to their mind … What have happened to our securities today?

One thing I cannot figure out is …. during day time, I used to see police patrol cars in these area, not once but many times. And now what make me wonder is …. Why the crimes still happened here? Is this the ignorance of the public or the police? (Read the acticle below, the one that have be highlighted in blue) The thieves &  robbers have became more alerts than the police? Or the police have been busy “doing” other thing?

KUALA LUMPUR: An open forum held at the college yesterday to discuss the recent spate of violent crimes against students.

Students and residents took the Setapak and Wangsa Maju police to task for various issues.

Sombre Mood
SOMBRE MOOD: Students, residents and others who attended the open forum at KTAR observing a moment of silence for Khian Yip who was hacked to death on Saturday by robbers.

One student, who only identified herself as HP, said security within the neighbourhood had “gone from bad to worse”, adding that snatch thefts and robberies were now normal occurrences.

“There are as many as two to three such incidents every week but when the victims go to the police station to make a report, they are discouraged from doing so,” she said.

“They are told that the incident was a result of their own carelessness and that they shouldn’t trouble the police with ‘small things’ like that.”

Wangsa Maju Section 2 Residents’ Association representative Lim Cheng Hock said the usual excuse given by police every time somebody tried to make a report was that they were understaffed.

“We don’t want any more lame excuses like this,” he said to thunderous applause from the crowd in the college hall.

Deputy Internal Security Minister Datuk Fu Ah Kiow said every police station has to accept any report made.

“If you encounter any police personnel who give you nonsensical answers, you can either inform me or the district police chief,” he added.

“Give us the date, the name of the person as well as his or her police ID number and we will take action.”

Sentul OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Rodzi Ismail said anyone unhappy with services provided by police personnel could lodge a complaint with details of the alleged incident. (Extracted from 2nd August, 2006)

My Comment

I believed that, those have ever made police reports before may not find the written article above a strange thing.
