Rotiboy and Beard Papa's

Rotiboy is a Malaysian brand that has marked its name overseas as well in Indonesia, Thailand, Korea and Saudi Arabia. The signature product is of course the bun that carries the same name, with coffee topping and butter filling. I had the original Rotiboy several times already during my previous trips to K.L., and during my recent trip, I decided to try the recommended item, Buttermilkboy.


The Buttermilkboy comes with vanilla topping and buttermilk filling, as the name suggests. Similar to the original Rotiboy, it has a crispy crust and a fluffy and thicker inner lining. The buttermilk filling is very creamy with sweetness that is just right. If you are in K.L., do try some of the Rotiboy pastries. You won't regret.


Beard Papa's on the other hand is a chain cream puff stores with its root in Japan. I tasted Beard Papa's cream puffs in Singapore many years back and they have become my top-of-the-list dessert item. I seldom miss it if I am in Singapore.


Beard Papa's cream puffs are crispy pastry shells filled with whipped cream custard. There are many flavours for the filling, but I prefer the original vanilla flavour to the others. The cream puffs are something to check out if you are on a gastronomic adventure in Singapore.

Harvesting the First Light of 2013

It has been a tradition for my photography buddies to catch the first sunrise of the year but it became an exception this year. I didn't join them for the past years and this is my first year to catch the first light. However, none of them wanted to join me as sleeping has become their higher priority this year.


I arrived Buntal at around 5:35 a.m. and it was still pitch dark. The cloud was very thick that there wasn't any sign of sunrise for today. However, I still stayed and waited for the first dawn of 2013.


There were already two photographers setting up their cameras when I arrived at site. They turned out to be somebody I know. I greeted them and started setting up my gear to harvest the first light.


More and more people turned up when the sky turned brighter. There were still quite many people trying to catch the first light despite the cloudy weather.


When the sky got even brighter, the birds perching on the wooden rack also started to get active for their daily activities. Fishermen started to get to work also hoping for a good harvest.



Happy New Year to all my family members, friends, bloggers and blog readers and I would like to wish you a good harvest for year 2013!
