Cat Can Talk!

You don’t believe? I am a cat, and I am talking to you now!

Just saw this from youtube.
Don’t know what is this flashmob is advertising about anyway. Some people is for the Micheal Jackson‘s movie, which apparently unable to complete, coz he is dead.

Well, not sure which one is the truth.
But anyway, lets consider as as a “Mari Masuk Penjara” campaign, as it is quite easy for us fellow Malaysian to enter the jail, as long as we are on Facebook anyway.

Was just browsing around in the Internet, and saw this very beautiful flashmob done by Banco Sadabell (Sadabell Bank of Spain).

In the flashmob, you can this flashmob was made possible by 100 musicians, performers, visual shooting team, consist of the Vallès Symphony Orchestra, the Lieder, Amics de l’Òpera and Coral Belles Arts choirs coming out from the Sadabell Bank.

Well, a lot magical moments can be created from classical musics, which it is why I love classical musics.

The music performed in the flashmob is Beethoven‘s Ode an die Freude (Ode to Joy) Symphony No.9.

Ode an die Freude is a German poem, where later on Beethoven used it for his Symphony No.9.
Below is the Ode an die Freude poem where I found from http://poetry.eserver.org/ode-to-joy-d.txt

Friedrich von Schiller
Ode an die Freude

O Freunde, nicht diese Tone!
Sondern lasst uns angenehmere anstimmen
Und freudenvollere!

Freude schoner Gotterfunken,
Tochter aus Elysium,
Wir betreten feuertrunken,
Himmliche dein Heiligtum!
Deine Zauber binden wieder,
Was die Mode Streng geteilt;
Alle Menschen werden Bruder,
Wo dein sanfter Flugel weilt

Wem der gross e Wurf gelungen,
Eines Freundes Freund zu sein,
Wer ein holdes Weib errungen,
Mische seinen Jubel ein!
Ja, wer auch nur eine Seele
Sein nennt auf dem Erdenrund!
Und wer’s nie gekonnt, der stehle
Weinend sich aus diesem Bund

Freude trinken alle Wesen
An den Bursten der Natur;
Alle Guten, alle Bosen
Folgen ihrer Rosenspur
Kusse gab sie uns und Reben,
Einen Freund, gepruft im Tod;
Wollust ward dem Wurm gegeben,
Und der Cherub steht vor Gott!

Froh, wie seine Sonnen fliegen
Durch des Himmels pracht’gen Plan,
Laufet, Bruder, eure Bahn,
Freudig, wie ein Held zum Siegen

Seid umschlungen, Millionen
Diesen Kuss der ganzen Welt!
Bruder! Uber’m Sternenzelt
Muss ein lieber Vater wohnen
Ihr sturzt nieder, Millionen?
Ahnest du den Schopfer, Welt?
Such’ ihn uber’m Sternenzelt!
Uber Sternen muss er wohnen

Note: This is not a sponsored post, I just post this because I like classical musics, thats all.

Menara Taming Sari, is so far the highest building in Melaka, with the height of estimated 110 meters.
Attached around the tower, is a cabin that will revolve 360 degrees while it is lifted from bottom to the top of the tower, where it will brings you up to 80 meter high.

Again, thanks to MMode, Santai Travel and Malaysia Tourism for inviting me for this joyful ride.

From this tower, you can have a clear view of the whole Melaka town, and you can even see the sea when the cabin reach the peak of the tower. Some of the obvious scenery you can see are St.Paul’s Hill, Independence Memorial Building, Samudra Museum and the ship, Flora de Lamar, Dataran Pahlawan, Pulau Selat Mosque, Pulau Besar and the Straits of Melaka.

Menara Taming Sari is named after the Keris of Hang Tuah. It is located at Bandar Hilir on Jalan Merdeka, Melaka. If you don’t know how to go there when you are at Melaka, just look up to the sky, and when you see it, just walk towards it. There are no reason for you to unable to find it if you are at the Melaka town, unless you got visual difficulties.

This is how it looks like when the cabin reach the peak of the tower.

And this is the Menara Taming Sari’s foundation. It looks small in the picture, but it actually very huge.

If you happened to visit to Melaka, and looking for Nyonya foods, this is a restaurant that you shouldn’t miss.

Melaka Nyonya Village is a restaurant that serve authentic Nyonya dishes, and I would say, so far the best I’ve tasted.
I am fortunate that I was invited to dine in this restaurant while I am in the Melaka trip with Sahabat Media gang. Thanks to MMode, Santai Travel and Malaysia Tourism Ministry.

We were all served with 9 dishes, but I don’t have all 9 dishes pictures, due to some technical difficulties. The foods were partially gone when I turned on the camera…
Therefore, most of the dishes pictures below are not from my camera.

All these dishes are all pork-free, so everyone should be no problem eating these, unless you are a vegetarian, as these dishes are cooked with meat.
Yes, pork-free! Not free pork!
Or else it wouldn’t be recommended by the Malaysia Tourism Ministry to everyone of us in Sahabat Media gang! Right? It is stated clearly at their signboard that all the foods are pork free, no msg! Original fragrance from spices!

Now, the introduction of the dishes.

Kerepek Ubi Keledek (The appetizer)

Telur Dadar Cincaluk

Sup Sayur Masin

Stir fried mixed veggies with foochuk

Sambal Petai

Pajeri Nanas

Ikan Goreng Kerutuk

Ayam Pongteh

Otak-Otak (Giant size ler!!!)

The desert? Of course Nyonya kuih and cendol lar! These 2 are Nyonya signature desert ler!

Aside than their delicious dishes, we were also being entertained by the performers with Nyonya dance.
