Summon Tauren Chieftain in Dota 6.59b

Today I just know that there is a secret Quest can be done in Defense of The Ancient (DOTA) 6.59b map. This might already not a fresh piece of information for some of you but I still like to share this in my blog. This quest can be done easily if you play a single player mode. You can summon a Tauren Chieftain after you complete the quest. If you able to kill it which is impossible without playing cheat, you can get the “Axe of the Chieftain” which will give you addition of +200 Strength and Chieftain Strike. The Chieftain Strike is used to bounce any unit away from you but it does not cause any damage. Well, if this can be done in real DOTA tournament, then the one who get the “Axe of the Chieftain” will own the game with that extra 200 strength. Go and have a try with this quest if you haven did so. Watch the video below for more detail of how to summon Tauren Chieftain.

My First Touch On Snake!

Have you ever see a snake such as this one? It is white but with yellow spot on it. If you never see before and want to see it with your own eyes, you can pay a visit in 1 Borneo Hyper mall at the Handicraft and Cultural Centre and take a glare on it. Well, this is no more a new news for student in Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) because UMS’s students always visit 1 Borneo and the snake was there since month ago. However I like to share this in my blog because it is my 1st touch on snake. Furthermore the snake that took my 1st touch is a weird snake which I never see before from television or other places (This snake is weird to me but maybe not to you).

I don’t know how many times I have see this snake every time I visited 1 Borneo. Each time I see it lying on the table, I would like to touch it but I didn’t have the courage to do so even though I knew it is not dangerous. The snake just lying on the table without moving and that’s make me think of a phrase we Chinese like to say or more precise is what Hakka used to say “Quiet Dog Bite” which make me feel that it is dangerous. However, today I see it gliding slowly on the table trying to get down to the floor. This make me feel that it is even dangerous than not moving but I finally touched its skin while it is moving. The feeling was like touching a hard plastic.

From the picture below, you can see that the snake is not only for display but is prepare for visitors to take pictures together. If I’m not mistaken they are having some event related to reptile and that’s why the snake is here. I don’t know how long this event be held. 1 picture cost RM10.00. It is not expensive to buy an experience with that price. So go take a photo with Snake now!!!

Upperstar Pepper Grill & Bar

Last week I went to this restaurant name Upperstar Pepper Grill & Bar. It is located in Damai Kota Kinabalu Sabah. If I’m not mistaken, there is another branch of this restaurant located in Kota Kinabalu Town. This is the first time I visit here after receive a few good comment from my friends. It is a well decorate restaurant. In Upperstar, besides enjoying local food such as Nasi Lemak, Nasi Goreng, you can also enjoy western food.

The environment here is good. The surrounding is decorated with all kind of musical instrument and pictures. It is air-conditioning inside and if you are a smoker, you can choose to sit outside. For what I know is that most of the people came here not just to enjoy the food here but drink alcoholic drinks and watching football game.

Seem I’m not good in drinking alcoholic drinks, I come here just to enjoy the food and the environment.We have other a lamb chop, grill Salmon, Spaghetti Bolognaise and Bruschetta. Bruschetta is toasted bread with some vegetables and meat on it. All the food ordered test good beside the spaghetti. I’m also satisfied with the quantity of the food serve. I’m sure that you can fill up your stomach with a reasonable price at Upperstar. Below are the appearances of the food I have ordered.

Lamb Chop with Black Pepper Sauce

Grill Salmon

Spaghetti Bolognaise


Fresh Juice

Well, in term of food, the restaurant does satisfy me. However, on the day I visit, the waiter there didn’t perform good services. I have been waited for quite some time until they come to serve me. During that moment, they don’t seem busy at all. Hope this won’t happen again during my next visit.

Fishing Competiton In UMS

Yesterday there was a fishing competition held in Universiti Malaysia Sabah. This competition was organized by the student from business faculty and the venue is at the ODEC of the university which is our university own jetty. Fishing is one of the famous activities done my people in Kota Kinabalu. When you drive along the way at the sea side of Kota Kinabalu, you can see people fishing. The competition opens for all people who is interested in fishing. The competition started at 8.00a.m and end at 12.45p.m. The winner will be selected base on the weight of their catch. Whoever that catch the heavier fish will be the champion. Champion will be given RM500 cash money.

There are quite a lot of people taking part in this competition. However, from what my friend told me, the number of participator for this year is less compared to the previous year. Well, I’m not taking part in this competition because I don’t know how to fish. I went there just to support my friend and see how people fishing. The weather on that day is so nice. I feel that it will be very relaxing to fish at such environment.

While fishing, participator can also enjoy the view of the ocean. Kota Kinabalu town can be seen clearly here. Due to the quality of my camera, you can see it clearly from the picture.

The moment I arrive at ODEC, my friend Allan already got a few catch. However, the heavier catch he got is only 170g which is still far away to be champion.

I don’t know what name is this fish call but it really looks scary to me. I look like belong to the grouper’s family. They said that it is poison, is it true?

Below is the fish caught by one of the participator which it is clearly seen that is catch certainly heavier than what my friend got. It is aroung 200g-250g.

What unusual thing happen is that besides catching fish, one of the participator hooks up a crab. I don’t know whether crab consider as fish or not but this crab certainly got some weight.

My friend doesn’t have any luck that day to allow him to get the champion. The heaviest catch in this competition is only about 400g. It really doesn’t sound like a big fish. I don’t know who the winner is so I can’t manage to get a snap on his fish before I leave.

After watching this competition, I really do have the feeling to try with this activity. There are really lots of knowledge can be learn in fishing. What stop my way is that this is not a cheap hobby because all the tool needed is quite expensive if I want to get a quality one. Well, hope my blog can earn me a fishing rod as soon as possible.

Chinese New Year's Firework 2009

Chinese New Year 2009 nearly comes to an end. Before it ends, I think it is still not too late to say GONG XI FA CAI to all of you. Well, during this CNY, I’m enjoying visiting relative and friends. Like what we already knew, happy moment always end fast. My one week holiday just pass through like flash and until now I’m still in very strong CNY mood which cause me can’t concentrate on my study for the time being. I should skip more classes to make my holiday longer.

Beside visiting relative and friends, the most enjoyable moment during CNY at 12.00a.m. on the first day of CNY. During that time, we Chinese will play with fire cracker and firework which is believe that it will chase away bad thing and bring good luck. However, this year I found that the amount of firecracker and firework in my area have decrease. This might due to the economy crisis. Well, no matter what I do hope that this only for temporary and all the good things are coming in this New Year.

Below is the short clip I took during the 1st day of CNY. Although I did not have the clip for pass few years but the amount of firework really decrease at my place.
