Wednesday What's the queue for ?

While shopping in the Boulevard Shopping Center, 
we saw a long queue

Took a closer look at the queue

Beyond the Body Shop and beyond the Restaurant ...

The queue started at SUSHI KING !

It was Sushi King Card BONANZA !

 Whipped out the membership card !

The bi-annual RM2 bonanza was
when you eat any plates off the conveyor 
for only RM2 !

Green tea ready 
with " wasabi " ( Japanese horseradish ) in shoyu sauce

Ate about 6 plates of " Unagi "
( grilled eel )

And a few plates of " Ebi Ten " ( prawn tempura )

A few plates of " Nihotate " ( cooked scallops )

and 6 plates of my favorite smoked salmon

This is a very good fish

This fish deserved to wear a crown

Shoji lamps that make the place " zen "

Dinner's done with the SHOYU sauce emptied 
 and the bill delivered

Surprisingly, SUSHI KING had the long queue still

 A young boy fascinated with the queue

See those spiders spinning the web ?

 And this spider was scaring the people away !

So it was time to run off

Wednesday Why Does my Body Do That?


If your body is low on oxygen, your mouth opens wide and tries to suck more in. Yawning is a way to regulate the amount of carbon dioxide and oxygen in your blood. Unfortunately, yawns are nearly impossible to stifle

Eye Twitches


Serious eye twitches can be a symptom of neurological disorders, but often there is a more mundane explanation. Common causes for eye twitches include stress, lack of sleep extended staring or eye strain. Before you get frantic, try reducing your stress level, cutting back on caffeine and catching up on sleep


According to Dr. Plasker,
our skin most often gets itchy because of dryness associated
with the environment or over-washing
Water and soap can strip skin of its natural oils,
thus sapping moisture
Face or body lotion should be able to keep
these types of itches under control; also look for body washes and soaps labeled 'moisturizing'
If you still have itchy patches,
you may be experiencing an allergic reaction
to a chemical, plant, food, animal or drug
See an allergist if the itching is persistent 


If you've frequently got a case of the hiccups,
try slowing down when you eat and drink, suggests Dr. Plasker
 Doing either too quickly causes your stomach to swell;
this irritates your diaphragm,
which contracts and causes hiccups
You may also get hiccups in emotional situations
or if your body experiences a sudden temperature change
 In both of these cases, the hiccups are a result of a glitch
in your nerve pathways, which is why a sudden scare -
which might shake up and reset your nerves -
can sometimes end an episode

It turned out that

this is a convoy returning

from a downtown parade

The monkeys on my back ...

These monkeys were resting 

down by the backyard monsoon drain

and up on the trees
