Use of MyTeksi app in Kuala Lumpur

Capture

Recently, I was introduced to use MyTeksi app to book a taxi. It has been a long time since I booked a taxi in Kuala Lumpur. It’s a user-friendly app where you can easily see if there are any nearby taxis. Once you input your location, you can see the drivers bidding for your booking. The successful bid will give you the car plate number, the driver’s name and phone number. You can also track your driver’s location.

I made a 2 days advance booking. You can call the driver to confirm the booking or wait for the driver to call you. What I liked was 10 minutes after I got on the taxi, a staff from MyTeksi called me to make sure that I got on the taxi. I got to know that not every person got that call. I’m not sure why but it gave me a comfort that my booking is in record. It was a rather safe experience which I would recommend others to try it, if you have not.

For more information, you can visit this website.

From the few taxis that I sat, they had the MyTeksi sticker and also EasyTaxi, which I have not tried yet.

Cervical (Neck) exercise 颈椎操

I have developed discomfort and ache on my neck. I went for massage and the masseur will say that my cervical 颈椎 is not good. I find it getting stiff during long hours of work in front of the computer and more bothering when it aches after long hours of run. I have reduced my backache with exercise but I think my past exercise has not work enough on my cervival. I find yoga helps and through google, these are recommended specifically for cervical exercise. Some pose may look like yoga pose too.

Red Velvet Cupcake Baking Class @ Big Fun Kitchen, New Bridge Road

20140720-073303-27183886.jpg

A random search for baking class through Groupon deals caught my eye on Red Velvet Cupcake Baking class. I was initially attracted to the reasonable price then to what will be taught. ^_^  It was my first time attending a baking class at Big Fun Kitchen. From the many classes I attended, no expectation whatsoever.

The location is convenient with easy to follow maps on their website. Either that or you can google map it yourself. The classroom is bright and clean, making anyone there feeling comfortable especially with the 2 friendly chefs, Ricky and Rick, and Cindy, the administrator (I think).

All ingredients are pre-prepared and provided to us for mixing. Some ingredients are to mix from raw, some are pre-mixed for adding. Well, although everything was prepared, a recipe is given to us for reference or note taking. I like how the recipe lays out where all ingredients are in weighing measurement. This is because I feel that the difference you get from using measuring cups or spoons is more than weighing the materials.

All we need to do is mix the ingredient from butter to batter. Step-by-step instructions will be given by Ricky. While you are busy exercising your arms, the whole team of 2RC (Both Ricky and Rick, and Cindy) will go around the class to help you out. They will confirm if your batter is ok or more work.

The baking process is done by Rick. While the cupcakes are being baked, Ricky is all up for Q&A sessions. I find myself learning a lot from them but would also provided that you do ask your questions, whether stupid or not.

The recipe provided also comes with vanilla cupcake with salted caramel frosting. As for the vanilla cupcake, is already baked for you. What we need to do is decorate them.

You can decorate with either salted caramel frosting or cream cheese frosting and some sprinkles. You don’t get to see or do the frosting but it was fun decorating. It would be nice if I could see how the frosting are mixed or prepared. Now, that would be up to your own experiment or maybe you can search on youtube.

The salted caramel frosting can shape better than the cream cheese frosting because the cream cheese melts rather fast. So, it is very important that before you use the frosting, you have to chill it for 15-30 minutes.

I had fun! Have you?

A very good Chinese video on learning the rules with explanation. I would think that it’s also interactive enough for children to learn. For English explanation, you can click here.
