Putrajaya "Lake" Ride

I went for a ride with Dr. Taufik despite some minor rain. He went ahead of me and showed me the trail. So much has been done around the artificial lake and IMHO, its underutilized. On our way back, we swapped bike and it was clear that I need to pump up the pressure on my tyres.

I was training for the upcoming Putrajaya Critical Mass. I hope to join the mass this Friday.

Here is the Google Earth view of our ride. It was a fun ride cos I got to see new places around the lake, and we covered some 15KM.

Fishing anyone?

I had my fair share of deep sea fishing. My last trip almost ended my 'fishing career' due to problem with broken control stick and propeller! Left without radio communications, 14 hours away from seashore! I thought we would end up on Vietnam shore. Anyway, we managed to dock in Kuala Besut after 24 hours of grueling sea experience, navigating with tyre float to increase/decrease drag therefore pointing the boat left or right.

View from the boat when we left Kuala Besut was breathtaking. Too bad, no DSLR, just too messy lah.

One of my best trip is to Sarawak. We caught lots of Jenahak! My buddy Nakamoto went along, and our story was on Majalah Pancing!

Masak Lomak Cili Api

During my last fishing trip to Kuala Besut, I brought back some cili api seeds. It was interesting cos it was white in color. Growing in my pot, it became like this ...

but still as hot as ever. Real chili padi, nice for my Masak Lomak ... umm Nilai, where I reside, is in Negeri Sembilan, but most people here don't speak Nogori lah.

Beef Kebab

Weekend Family Activity ... we had fun making this kebab. Simple, and reasonably tasty. I like the taste of grilled green pepper. Combined with yellow onion, beef with a bit of salt and fresh ground black pepper, ahh great. Wish i had Dr. Pepper to go with this kebab! That would be a blast.

DIY WiFi Antenna

Today, I went to my sister's place and we were talking about the mamak restaurant down the road has wifi access.

I suggested we experiment with a setup, i knew it would work. We sacrificed one aluminium work cover, then tie it as a collector for the wifi signal. After adjusting the focus point, we managed to get somewhere 65% signal quality and about 30% signal strength. That's it! and we got connected!

We are connected at about 2mbps and that should be more than enough!
