Motormouth's 7 Deadly Sins ....

Ever heard of tags/meme/whatever they call them in the blogosphere? Much like chain mails (which are SOOOO yesteryears' ....), people from all walks of life, & from all corners of the earth pass them on to fellow bloggers, with a certain trait, either to list the TOP 10 Things You're Dying To Say To Your Country Leaders (=P), your Top 5 Dirtiest Secrets (washing your soiled laundry for millions to see), or plain old 100 Stuff You Wish to Accomplish Before It's Armageddon.
Tagged by Elinluv, then Pureglutton, and .... my memory failed me, but there's another flogger/blogger who passed them on to me. Hands up pls! And spare me the spanking, PLS? ;)
(Updated 14/12/08 - It was Food Paradise! Yippee! )
THE SEVEN THINGS YOU WISHED YOU'LL NEVER KNOW ABOUT ME


1. All the photos on this blog were snapped with a Nokia 5610 Xpress Music phone. Exception includes the pics taken in Hong Kong/Macau, where I shamelessly borrowed a friend's camera and went into snapping-frenzy mood. And some other travel photos stolen (with/without knowledge of proprietor's) from the others. Whoops. Now I'll get a summon to appear in court for plagiarism.


2. J2Kfm is NOT my real name. Duh. And I'm a GUY, not a GAL. Nor a dog. The image in my profile page is our beloved pet of nearly 2 years, a female Golden Retriever by the name of Lulu. A hyperactive, loving, and loyal, yet cunning and forever-hungry dog. Guess the saying's true. The pet mimics the owner, sometimes to a tee.



3. I work as a pharmacist. And I'm rather polite in real life. =P Those imagining a raging, ranting and rambling Motormouth may be in for a shock. Hehehe ... Unless you're gettin' on my nerves. Or stealing my food. Grrrr .....


4. One of my favourite food happens to be the PETAI. Cooked in sambal with prawns, or barbecued with squids, or even fried with rice, I like them stinking beans, ensuring a bloody good time with mates after the meal, breathing stinkbombs into their faces. But most do not share my love for the under-rated beans. Sigh ....

Come to think of it, I like most stinking/rotten/yucky stuff. From fermented beancurd (foo yee and stinky tofu) to petai, and durians to salted fish. And those are the milder stuff. Weirdest stuff I've put into my mouth? Those deep-fried scorpions in Beijing. And they were crispy, salty and delicious. But pricey, at about RM5/pc, if I recall correctly. Others include the creepy-crawlies from Thailand, squirrels, and such.

Still searching for those of same interests, so we can venture to Lawan Kuda near Gopeng for a taste of the exotic stuff. Any takers?


5. My most hated food/green for the moment = LEMONGRASS/SERAI. No offense to the Lyrical one, but I can't stand the overpowering aroma of them in my food. In miniscule amount, like in TomYam soup, I can still bear the taste. But not when boiled in water and drank. Bad experience with some Lemon Myrtle drink some years ago.

6. I LOVE travelling. That explains my love for this current job, when I get to travel for free. AND earn some $$$ in return. Never get tired from travelling, sometimes continuously even. Though mostly local destinations. But with Air Asia, now everyone can fly. Ahem .... Depending on the destination though. My next target? HANOI.

7. And last but not least, erm, I've no more secrets to spill. REALLY! But seven's my favourite number, And I was (still am, at times) a videogame junkie since primary days. From the oldest console of mine, a Micro Genius-copycat, to a Gameboy, then Playstation, followed by PS2, I'm currently stashing a PSP in my drawers. Still contemplating on a PS3/Nintendo Wii.
But camera comes first. Thus, I'm still on the lookout for a good cam, not really to serve my food-snapping activity, but more for my travelogue. And my favourite videogame of all time is still the amazing RPG breakthrough, FINAL FANTASY 7....
AND THAT'S A WRAP. I won't tag anyone though. But feel free to tell 7 Things you'd like to reveal about yourself, without the burden of doing so. Have a happy weekend ....

boLanliap said...

Hmm..petail is fantastic stuff! not very stinkodok thru the mouth but the magic lies in after you pee!

Petai also taste very good if you use it to fried egg! is so simple, just chop the petai and mixed with egg, add seasoning, and voila...

mycroft said...

get a compact camera so can take more food photos. other wise... invest on a dslr.. worth every cent

TallgaL said...

Haha, so many ppl praise ur dog is cute..ahem..it is anyway.:P I think nothing can't insert your motormouth.Haha! And plz speed up wf the camera. I suppose ur next trip is coming soon. Fast fast!

ck lam said...

Now I know what are your likes and dislikes...and very surprised that you like petai so much.

SimpleGirl said...

that's a great reveal Motormouth...finally get to know you more!!!

Ah Lock said...

Hope you don't secretly take snap shots of Ipoh leng lui with that phone... If you do, e-mail them to ME... ho! ho! ho! (Like I said, Christmas season, gotta laugh like Santa!)

Pets mimic the owner...do owners resemple their pets as well? If they do, then you must be HAIRY!!

I love Final Fantasy. Very much! Not the game, haven't played the game. Go to Youtube, type in final fantasy and you get lots n lots of music videos thats so sweet/romantic/touching, etc...etc...

And...what happened to the EIGHT? Why just SEVEN? The EIGHT is YOUR PHOTO! Where ha?

And lastly, I pity the next person who is going to use the toilet after you, after your petai meal...

J2Kfm said...

Jencooks : hey there. where got interesting ... like old man's story only. i'll never do this again! hehe.

Precious pea : haha ... least you know my dog's name. or you knew right?

cariso : haha, not all lah. only the local destinations. others all paying ones ...

Lyrical Lemongrass : erm, no love lost, no worries. i dont favour serai in my food, but not the singing/blogging one.

Food For Tots : none of the skills. but the photos came out rather sharp due to the phone's auto focus function.

550ml jar of faith : SLR? hahaha, none of that. where got $?!! high 5 to another petai fan!

KCA : i've revealed before lah. not the detailed job description though. and who says Lulu hypo? u come over and let her lick your face all over ...

TallGal : but it IS cute ma. dun say otherwise, or i'll send her over ...

So what does J2Kfm stands for?

CUMI & CIKI said...

Lingzie said...

aww lulu is such a cutie! i love golden retrievers and am always so happy when you put up photos of lulu! :P

you're a pharmacist ah? never pictured you as a pharmacist! lol
eh when you come up to penang again must drop us a note ok? we organize a meet up :)

Duckie said...

i love dogs too!!! and i have 2!!!

Selba said...

1. Wow.. your nokia handphone snaps unbelievable nice pictures! I'm thinking to replace my SE 700i handphone to another phone that can snap better pictures. It's really sucks when my lumix digicam is broken like now and I couldn't snap nice pics.

2. What does J2KFM stand for? Probably that people mistaken to think that you are a girl? Hehehe... Oh.. your Lulu is adorable. My previous dog named also Lulu, but her fur color is black. Can see that your Lulu is eating carrot :)

3. A pharmacist? That's cool! Can I ask about medicine to you? ;)

4. Guess what? Petai was prohibited in my house until my dad passed away. The first time, mom cook her petai was about 10 year ago and the first time, I ate petai is about 8 year ago.. and I like it :)

5. Make sure if you are visiting Bali, don't stay at Bali InterContinental hotel! Why? Because everything is using lemongrass, from the welcome drink until the soap in the bathroom, hehehe..

6. I love travelling too. Hanoi is a nice place to visit, been there in end of year of 2004 :)

7. Yay! Final Fantasy!! My favourit is Final Fantasy 8 :D

Oopsss... hope that my comment is too long and taking too much space, hehehe

J2Kfm said...

genuiness : aiya, there's somehow this young soul deep inside me. =P
nowadays videogames cater more to adults>children though.

Tummythoz : erm, yeah. she was a vege freak, from carrots to celeries, and potatoes to onions.
J2Kfm was coined up for fun. no hidden meaning.

cumi & ciki : yes ah?! where you working now?! retail? or you farm?!

Lingzie : they're furry and always smiling look. friendly and lift that spirit up a notch. sure to drop you guys a line if i'm going.

Duckie : oh, what breed are they?

Selba : wow, thanks for the detailed comments. nowadays Sony's C series, Nokia N series, and Samsung G series snap real good pics. sure you're free to ask bout medicines, provided its the same med sold here n in Indo. and high 5 to ANOTHER FF fan!!!

Anyway, thanks for the meme.

J2Kfm said...

BSG : ahem. nothing ground-breaking about that. haha ... call me lazy, if you'd ...

Elinluv : it wasnt a burden, dont get me wrong ! :) but it was indeed, slightly tough to reveal anything more, as some of my frens were shocked at the revelation! hahaha ...

fatboybakes said...

hey, wow, your phone's camera pretty awesome leh. i'd never have guessed that all those pics are from phone. i lurve petai too. i just bought a kilo of peeled petai in bidor recently. slowly savouring.

J2Kfm said...

FBB : one kilo is how many tali ah? Bidor's petai some of the best. but must bargain, or bring a local.

PureGlutton said...

Ahhh...finally u did the tag ;) Nice to know a bit more about u. We have a couple of things in common >>> love dogs and petai, LOL! My Koji is absolutely adorable, just like your Lulu, altho' he's a hairy little Shihtzu.

J2Kfm said...

PureGlutton : shih-tzu's one of the most 'laku' pups in pet shops. maybe they're small and easy to handle, not to mention cute!
