Blogging mood on since today is a public holiday for me so that means I've no classes & parents are enjoying their off day as well!  ;)  Went to St. Anne's Church at Bkt. Mertajam during the day for the very first time in my life.  In conjunction of St. Anne's day, the church was very happening.  Many believers were praying with lighted white candles in their hands to this particular Saint.  Honestly, my knowledge about Christianity aren't that much besides knowing some general ones regarding Jesus & Mother Mary.  

In case you guys are wondering if I'm a Christian, fyi, I'm not a Christian but a believer and I've made some wishes in that hall itself not because I'm superstitious, it's just I somehow believe in the existence of God even tough sometimes I'm not really that religious nor being a person who's leading a holy life, that's all.  How about you guys?  Do you guys believe in Gods of your respective religions?    

The picture below is the best #potd I have with me or I should say the best picture combination as the picture below was highly edited by compiling two of the best shots to show what the statue was suppose to look like simply because I don't have a professional photographer with me to take a perfect shot :P  

Though I'm not a follower of Jesus but then I somehow like this statue because in my perspective, it somehow looks like the Statue of Liberty which symbolizes the universal symbol of freedom

#jotd < idk whether if there's the existence of this kind of abbreviation but jotd is my own version of joke of the day! :P

Those were the two photos I selected to compile into one how it was suppose to look like...picture 1 was somehow a horrid as the blurred part(too bananonina to show!) was actually my head sticking out, epic failed selca...picture 2 captured by mum if I'm not mistaken/uncle who just capture half of the Jesus statue ><   Actually they took a few shots but guess those were horrible, terrible and vegetable shots till I was like 'nevermind d lar!  no need to take liao! :P but couldn't blame them lar...hahaha...reflecting back to the situation was kind of *awkward*    Whatever it is I still manage to somehow make it into a picture I wanted it to look like despite of those distortions, sincere thanks to those who invented PHOTO EDITORS!!! like Adobe Photoshop and so on but in my case I'm just using the foc MTXX aka 美图秀秀 which is my current favouite life saver.  

Before moving on to what I've for lunch, here's a panoramic view of St. Anne's Church. 

So now allow me to tempt you guys with my yummy lunch since I've never do this for quite some time :P

Spring Chicken was finger licking good!

Char Bihun (Fried Vermicelli)

The chef's speciality aka Steam Fish 
ps. for the distorted caption due to me want banana! :P Btw, super liking the blend of the sourish yet garlicky flavour gravy

虾饼 aka Prawn Crackers
Simply irresistible crisps in each and every bite!  

"Lai  lui ha"(canto) aka Mantis Prawn

Last but not least, this is one of the main reason why we had our lunch here! 

At a glance, this really looks like those antibiotics medicine I used to vomit when I were young :P or in a more polite way of speaking it probably looks like Barli water.    Back to the point, speaking of alcohols you guys could easily named a few types(beer, red wine, white wine, champaign, stout...) and brands (Tiger, Heineken, Asahi, Guinness...) which are very mainstream but have you guys ever came across this traditionally fermented 'tuak'(click to find out)?   I've always wanted to taste this ever since I saw my parents drinking it years ago but at that time I wasn't allowed to drink as the effect of it is similar to any other alcoholic beverages which will eventually make you hallucinate, dizzy and drunk.  Finally I get to taste it today and I simply like the sweet yet a little sourish taste but then have the fragrance of our cooking wine???(not really good at describing this rare taste but it does taste like Tapai! but apparently some people might be loathing about the taste)   Just in case you don't know how a what is Tapai(fermented typically from cassava/white rice/glutinous rice) and how does it look like:

According to my mum many people find this distasteful as well but I really misses the sweet and sour alcoholic paste taste of the Tapai but I could hardly find it anywhere these days not even in Bazaar Ramadhan :(  Any idea where could I buy this?  It has been ages since I last ate it.  hehe...  Guess I've been way off topic, always happens when I'm talking about food....but now back to Tuak!  Instead of drinking it solely, mixing it with stout is definitely a suggested way of enjoying this particular beverage as tuak is cooling and stout is more of a heaty beverage and when both are mixed together it'll equalize it.  As for me, I would add some ice cubes to chill and of course dilute it as its pretty thick in my opinion and of course I don't wanna get drunk lar :P
