Polis Diraja Malaysia (PDRM) = Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X

This is an old news but I think it amazes me.

Yes, the local police forces are now using Lancer Evolution X as part of their fleet. 25 of these are now sitting in the police base, waiting to pounce on their prey. Apparently, some forces were also sent to Japan for drivers' training. Hmm... Impressive!

Millions spent to make sure criminals don’t escape

KUALA LUMPUR: The Royal Malaysian police has bought 25 high-powered Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution cars to catch criminals and speed hogs.

The cars, worth several millions of ringgit, would be fitted with safety gadgets and would sport the looks of police patrol cars.


These millions spent would in turn make a huge amount of revenue for the police forces. That's if work is done p-r-o-p-e-r-l-y.

“The cars are to be used in high-speed car chase, especially in cases of carjacking, kidnapping and hi­­jacking.

“The speed of the cars would enable the police to catch up with criminals who often used modified turbo charged cars to escape,” they said.

Those who are fond of driving fast, if these machines catch up with you, I guess you will have to fork out m-o-r-e. LOL!




Just so if ou are wondering how fast can they go. =)

Read the whole article HERE(The Star).

From now on, if you decide to be heavy footed, be AWARE!

Till then, take care, God bless!

A Taste Boutique - Heaven in a cupcake!

Aeons ago, on a bright and sunny Saturday morning, a phone call came in. Putra Heights was the place. The GPS was turned on and off we went! What a complicated journey?! I think without the GPS, we wouldn't have got there.

Anyway, after much driving, we were greeted by this.


A Taste Boutique is a family business experienced in making pretty cakes. We are passion in making good and flavorsome cake designed with great taste, every creation reflects our ideal attention to detail.

Icing and Fondant in many colors.

Cupcake decorating process.

We were introduced to their shop concept and the cupcakes making process. At A Taste Boutique, not so much emphasis is given on the icings/deco but the cupcakes flavour itself. Usually, you get fancy icings/deco on a vanilla or buttered flavored cupcake. Here besides the usual vanilla and butter cupcakes, they offer orange, chocolate chip, chocolate fudge, cookies & cream and of course their flagship best selling carrot walnut cupcake. Now this is something to look forward to.

Then comes the makan time, we were given various flavors of cupcakes to try. One word sums it all, heavenly! All the richness and sweetness in a cupcake. Where? A Taste Boutique definitely! They were indeed rich. Every bite was blissful.


The Carrot Walnut Cupcake, their flagship, best selling cupcake. The flavorful carrot cake added with chunky bites of walnut, the perfect combination to me. Not to forget the smooth cream cheese spread on it adds perfection to the already perfect combination. This is a MUST try.


(L-R) Orange, Cookies n Cream, Butter, Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes.

All ready made cupcakes are priced at RM2.50 each which I think is very affordable. Custom make designs and decos are also available at a different price according to design.

Besides cupcakes, A Taste Boutique also makes a variety of other cakes and pastries. They too bake special birthday cakes or cakes for any occasion with any desired design. This I must say is pretty interesting.

Australian Lamingtons.

Australian Lamingtons are butter cake in cubes, coated with traditional rich chocolate icing and topped with dessicated coconut. This is something new to me and it was GOOD! A MUST try here too!

Red Velvet Cake

A Red velvet cake is a type of rich and sweet cake, with a distinctive dark red to bright red or red-brown color. Common ingredients include buttermilk, butter, flour, cocoa powder, and often either beets, or red food coloring. It is most popular in the Southern United States, though known in other regions. The most typical frosting for a red velvet cake is a butter roux icing also known as a cooked flour frosting. Cream cheese buttercream frostings are also popular.

This is also something new to me. The first bite on this cakes sends you to thinking. Its unique taste makes you wonder what is in it. Mysteriously delicious I would say. =) This is also a flagship best selling cake here. A MUST MUST try if you haven't.

Interesting? Yes? No?

What about this?

Happy people that day,

Celebrating Chinese New Year with Souled Out.

If you are a regular at Souled Out, you would have known that for any occasions, there is always Souled Out. Be it festive occasions, fun occasions or even parties. You can always count on Souled Out to make it happen for you.

To them, it is a must for them to celebrate these occasions where it would be a treat to their customers. With special food served and many performances lined up for them on that day.


This year, I celebrated Chinese New Year with Souled Out. This was the Chap Goh Meh party they have every year without fail. The heavenly out-of-the-menu buffet spread with many Chinese traditional delicacies truly makes one feel at home. To them mat sallehs, it would definitely be a whole new experience. Not to forget the compulsory 'Lou Sang' during Chinese New Year makes one feel truly at home at Souled Out.

Fruit "Baskets"

Lou Sang! Lou Hei! Lou Hei!

Food was GOOD!

Performances were also lined up for the guests. Among which the Shanghai Acrobat team which they exclusively fly down every Chinese New Year gave a stunning performance. Their jelly-like bodies sure sent the crowd to their feet. There was also a Lion Dance performance that initially “blessed” the restaurant and then went on to give a stunning performance on stilts. The night ended with loud fire crackers and an awesome 5 minute fireworks show for all.

Among the performances that night.

The formation of '88' which brings luck to the chinese.

Giving blessings to Fred.

Sponsored by Souled Out.

The Lion Dance performance on stilts and one of it enjoying the fireworks.

Truly, a great night out for me. It feels just like celebrating it with your loved ones at home. I would not hesitate to come back again next year with more great happenings I believe.

Happy people that night. =)

Till then, take good care, God bless!
