When you come to Ipoh 怡保, besides Ipoh White Coffee, most people will think of the Bean Sprouts Chicken Rice 芽菜鸡 (Nga Choi Gai)! Yes! There’s where the Bean Sprouts Chicken Rice 芽菜鸡 origin from? I have no idea… but I know Ipoh is famous for the chicken rice =)
Lou Wong Bean Sprouts Ipoh Chicken Rice 老黄怡保芽菜鸡
The chickens were were prepared like this? Hygiene is one of the concern!
The steam chicken 白切鸡 is not really fat but kinda hard to chew. It goes well with the Bean Sprouts (芽菜Tauge)!
Bean Sprouts (芽菜Tauge) seasoned with some pepper, light soya sauce and oil, it’s really awesomesauce. It’s shorter and fatter than the normal sprouts that you could find in KL or PJ. I heard ppl say that it is due to the fresh water so that the sprouts is fat and shorter? =)
Tried their Kuey Teow instead of the rice. The Kuey Teow is nice but I think they prepared for quite sometime (for fast serving) and the Kuey Teow soak too long in the soup so that made the Kuey Teow stick together! Lol.
Sour Plum Juice 酸梅水 which is best too!
On the other hand, Onn Kee 安记 is another shop next to it that sell Bean Sprouts Chicken Rice 怡保芽菜鸡 too but the crowd is less compared to Lou Wong 老黄. Moreover, if you know or have some Ipoh friends, they do not actually fancy these Chicken Rice shop as I think it’s too commercialized Chicken Rice. Lolz.
Perhaps you should recommend some real Bean Sprouts Chicken Rice 怡保芽菜鸡 to me? Something that is more traditional rather than just like Onn Kee 安记 and Lou Wong 老黄?
In conclusion, to me it’s just the Bean Sprouts (芽菜Tauge) is different from our version of Ipoh Chicken Rice in KL / PJ, other than that you could easily get better chicken rice here! I have tried New Restaurant Ipoh Chicken Rice, located along Jalan Gasing, the Chicken Rice there is even better.
Okay… So our fuel price of RON95 will remain at the same price at RM1.9 / liter for now. The question is the fuel price remain for now and “Now” refer to when? How long will this last and will it be announced the price increasing in Fuel price next month? or next 2 month or next half year?
We have experienced that there’s announcement that Fuel price will not be increase but soon it’s announced again that the price will be increased the next day. So, please don’t increase for now till 2099. Thank you! If not I gonna eat bread and white rice everyday liao.
Another question if the world fuel price drop our fuel price will remain too? =_=
Let’s just watch and see what’s the next upcoming news. Hope it will not get me into heart attack!
Prices of RON95 petrol, diesel and LPG to remain the same: Ismail Sabri
PUTRAJAYA: In a move that will please many Malaysians, the government has decided to maintain the prices of RON95 petrol, diesel and liquefied petroleum gas for the time being.
Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the decision was made after an in-depth discussion on subsidy rationalisation at Wednesday’s weekly cabinet meeting.
“The decision was made taking into consideration the interest of the people,” he told a news conference at his ministry, here Wednesday.
The government would however continue to study the need for subsidy rationalisation in view of the increase in the prices of oil and gas in the global market.
Asked whether there was any discussion on the time frame for the prices to remain, Ismail Sabri said there was no discussion about time frame. The price of RON95 petrol is now RM1.90 per litre and diesel at RM1.80 per litre. LPG is priced at RM1.90 per kg.
The last time the prices for these three items were adjusted was in December last year.
Ismail Sabri said the decision to retain the prices of the three items meant that the government had to bear fuel subsidy totalling RM18bil.
Last year, the fuel subsidy was RM8.15bil. – Bernama
PUTRAJAYA: Malaysians need not worry about any new increase in the price of RON95 petrol, diesel and liquefied petroleum gas as the Government has announced that it is keeping the current rate for the time being.
Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the decision was made with the people’s interest in mind.
He also stressed that the Cabinet’s move had nothing to do with talk about a pending general election.
In other developments:
> Economists called for a minimum wage council to protect public interest;
> Barisan Nasional Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin described it as a people-centric decision; and
> Consumer groups cautioned that government subsidies would eventually have to be phased out gradually.
PUTRAJAYA: Prices of RON95 petrol, diesel and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) will remain at the present rates for now.
Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the decision to maintain the prices was in the interest of the people.
He, however, could not specify how long the current prices would be maintained.
“I am sorry, I am not able to say exactly how long for now’ can be.
“It can be for a month, two months perhaps or maybe four months,” he told a press conference yesterday.
RON95 is sold at RM1.90 per litre, diesel at RM1.80 while LPG is priced at RM1.90 per kilogramme. The prices were effective from Dec 4 last year.
The decision to keep the current prices would mean that the subsidies borne by the Government will rise from RM8bil to RM18bil this year.
Ismail Sabri said the decision to maintain the prices was reached at a Cabinet meeting.
“The Government takes into consideration the people’s interest. It has nothing to do with a general election. It also has nothing to do with the so-called pressure from the Opposition and the scary stories that they have cooked up about an impending price hike,” he said.
Ismail Sabri said the public should not be misled by the Opposition’s talk that the Government would increase the petrol price by as much as 30 sen.
“Stop believing them but listen to us as we always ensure that we will take into consideration the welfare of the people before we make any decision,” he said.
However, Ismail Sabri said the Government would continue to study the need for subsidy rationalisation following the increase in the prices of petrol and gas in the global market.
He also said the Government would reduce its subsidy burden by more than RM800mil when the diesel subsidies for deep-sea fishing vessels and nine classes of commercial vehicles were removed on June 1.

Astro’s second local Chinese film production, Great Day, was the major box office success for local Chinese films. Great Day is the highest grossing local Chinese film in Malaysia with the accumulation of RM6.5 million within eight weeks of its screening. This record-breaking film, distributed by Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC), has also surpassed Woohoo!, Astro’s first Chinese local film production garnering RM 4.2 million in box office collection last year.
In celebration of the box office hit and the premiere screening in Taiwan, Astro organised an appreciation party today at Overtime, Tropicana City Mall as a gesture of appreciation to each and every party who made this film a success it is today. During the appreciation party, the much-anticipated launch date of the Great Day DVD was announced. The Great Day DVD will be released on 30 April distributed by Multimedia nationwide.
Attending the Great Day appreciation party were Chiu Keng Guan, the film director, Choo Chi Han, Vice President of Chinese Language Business of Astro and the film’s executive producer, Steven Lim, Managing Director of Multimedia, Tung Yow Kong, Senior Distributor Manager of GSC, movie crew members, distinguished guests and media members. Lineup of movie cast included Jack Lim, Wan Wai Fun, Royce Tan, Vivian Tok, Bernard Hiew, Jeff Chin, Gan Mei Yan, Loong Boon Min, Lim Yew Beng, Yap Ah Lan, Crystal Lee, Tan Hao Yen, Miao Lim and Brendan Yuen. Gan Jiang Han, who was working during a live broadcast of Evening Edition, missed the fun-filled party.
The Great Day DVD, encompasses the 90-minute film as well as a 75-min the making of, movie trailer and photo gallery for collection, is slated to hit the store shelves on 30 April. The DVD is priced at RM19.90; meanwhile its economic version with film only will also be available at a very affordable price of RM10. Multimedia who owns the copyright of Great Day deployed a better technology in producing the first batch of 6,000 DVDs to ensure content quality.
Great Day premiered last 13 January in 60 cinemas nationwide; tells of the various relationships between children and their parents and revolves around the central theme of the much-treasured Asian value of filial piety. The film has garnered overwhelming positive feedbacks from the local movie- goers, accumulating over RM6.5 million gross box office collections, despite stiff rivalry against foreign blockbusters during the Chinese New Year. The efforts of Chiu and Astro paid off when Great Day, together with Woohoo!, successfully hit the big screens in Taiwan on 15 April, showcasing unique Malaysian cultures to audience abroad.

Are you confidence in yourself? I know that a lot of us, including myself, do have the talents / skills and knowledge but just do not dare to take the next steps that might the stopper to your own success. If we do not take the next steps or overcome our lack of confident, we will be stagnant and will be living in dark forever.
That happened to me few years back where I’m really lack of confident in everything that I do. I will keep asking myself, am I doing the right thing? Will I be success in what I’m doing right now and what if I made the wrong choice and end up in a failure? We tend to care a lot on what other people comment or think of what we do will be the right choice or not, that might be another stopper if your friends or family do not support in what you are planning to do or currently doing.
It took me a long time not to judge myself through someone else eyes. I have actually come out with a tagline for myself to follow and it will be always my guide and now it’s my principle.
– It means, if we have the talents or skills, we must show and prove it, but not keeping it to ourselves. If we have a dream or target, we have to work hard to achieve it!
With that, Proton Edar recently launched the all-new campaign for the Persona called “Persona – Better, Undoubtedly” or “Sememangnya Lebih Sempurna”. This five month will introduces two new Persona Ambassadors, DJ Lin from Suria FM and Aanantha from THR Raaga, who will join the current Persona Ambassador Jack Lim 林德荣 from MY FM (aka Ah Beng) that will engage Malaysians on distinct platform with the theme “inspiring confidence”.
The ‘Better, Undoubtedly’ Campaign sees the three Persona ambassadors take on a new role as mentors, sharing their life lessons to guide people from various backgrounds to face their own challenges. Each of the ambassadors will champion their own programmes which have been developed based on their life experiences.
During the campaign’s course, these three ambassadors who were chosen based on their life experiences, will take on roles as mentors, sharing their life lessons to guide people from various backgrounds to face their own challenges. It’s truly 1Malaysia concept as you can see from the chosen Proton Persona Ambassadors. Each ambassador will have his or her own programme developed based on their respective experiences.
Jack Lim 林德荣, is one of the tough person and he will never give up easily. He has had a difficult beginning before he become a successful radio host and actor, but his determination and ‘never give up’ attitude allowed him to overcome his initial failed attempts to achieve his dreams which he will never achieve if he did no persist.
“Jack Lim : Confidence comes from your preparation for the work. If you want to have more confidence in doing something you have to put effort preparing for it.”
Do you want to boost up your confident level and achieve what you are able to achieve? Jack Lim will attempt a personal challenge and invite others to also take own the challenges that they have always wanted to pursue but were too frightened or lacked the motivation in the ‘Better, Undoubtedly’ Campaign. He will be selecting three candidates and mentoring them through their challenge.
On Thursday, 12 May, Jack will be attempting a personal challenge to drive from Bukit Kayu Hitam to Johor Bharu, taking inspiration from his father who was a salesman who travelled all over the country, doing everything he could to support the needs of his family.
Once his father even drove non-stop from Thailand to Singapore for work. As a young boy, Jack used to follow his father on some of his journeys, and he was inspired by his father’s determination and perseverance.
During this challenge Jack will be making stops at Butterworth, Ipoh, KL and Johor Bharu. So tune in to MYFM for more details to meet him and be part of his charity challenge.
Are you constantly seeking to achieve greater things, but you find that you are lacking in confidence? Boost your confidence with Jack Lim! So fear not and be a confident person and go for the next steps in your life! Together we could do better.

I want to watch also la… Haha. If you have it do let me know, I want to watch how bad it is, because there’s a review by Chapman To 杜汶澤 in youtube and in the video it’s critics of the movie. Watch for yourself below.
The Cantonese-language production 3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy had earned 17 million Hong Kong dollars ($2.2 million) as of Tuesday since opening last week, according to figures provided by producer Stephen Shiu.
That’s nearly seven times the total take so far for Hollywood thriller Scream 4, which has earned $HK2.5 million ($320,000).
Sex and Zen — a remake of a 1991 Hong Kong movie by the same name — features full nudity and camouflaged lovemaking scenes but does not show actual sexual intercourse.
The movie, which stars Japanese porn stars Hara Saori and Suo Yukiko and Hong Kong actress Vonnie Liu, tells the story of a sexually frustrated scholar in ancient China who loses himself in the harem of a duke he befriends.
The film brought in $HK2.78 million ($360,000) on its opening day last Thursday, eclipsing the previous first-day record set by James Cameron’s 2009 3D sci-fi epic Avatar, which earned $HK2.63 million ($340,000) on its first day.
Shiu, whose father Stephen Shiu Sr served as executive producer on the original Sex and Zen, said he believes he has capitalised on a huge desire for 3D erotic movies.
“We met people’s expectations. People have always thought that you need 3D technology for this kind of content. So people were very curious,” he said.
Sex and Zen bills itself as the world’s first 3D erotic film, although Shiu acknowledges that a South Korean production — last year’s Natali — hit the market before his release did.
However, Shiu’s movie is still a pioneering attempt at using new 3D technology in theatrical releases of erotic films, given that the market in the West is now largely dominated by DVD releases.
The movie’s Hong Kong performance has also been boosted by an influx of mainland Chinese viewers, whom Shiu estimates accounted for up to half of the business at some theatres.
Although former British colony Hong Kong returned to Chinese rule in 1997, it still maintains a separate political system — and film regulatory regime.
While Hong Kong has a film ratings system, mainland China doesn’t, which effectively rules out erotic content.
Sex and Zen received a restricted rating in Hong Kong, allowing only audiences aged 18 and older to see the film.
It’s not the first time mainland viewers have traveled to Hong Kong to evade censorship by Chinese authorities. Many mainlanders crossed over to watch the uncut version of Oscar-winning Taiwanese director Ang Lee’s sexually explicit 2007 spy thriller Lust, Caution.
Hong Kong theatre operators have also sought to cash in on the novelty factor by staging women-only screenings.
Sex and Zen has also been released in about a dozen theatres in Chinese communities in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, but Shiu didn’t have box office results.
The movie is scheduled to be released in South Korea on May 12, and in France, Italy and India in June. Shiu is also targeting a May release for Singapore, although the filmmakers are still working with local censors on the final cut.
