I was at Kebun Baru Food Centre ~ AMK St 22 this morning at 6am.
Kebun Baru Food Centre ~ AMK St 22
Date: Fri, Sep 28, 2012 before 6:56 AM (or 6am to 6:30am)
01-05 Wanton Noodle.
~ first shop I saw after parking. Nice. I detect there is NO MSG and very little salt used. Char Siew pre-sliced thinly, consistently. Soup, pleasant. Noodles... good enough for me. Point to note... one plate cost either $2.50 or $3 and the default is $3 and that was what I got when I ordered without stating my preference... so let them know if you want the $2.50 plate.
01-15 Sin Kim Seng Coffee Stall
~ the Kopi-Kau-Sway (50cents) I drank was nice. I'd drink again.
01-28 ~ Tea House
~ I did NOT drink (have not drunk) here yet. What's interesting here is... while drinking my cup of kopi (from 01-15), I saw a few people drinking their's in a nicer, smaller and more Traditional Cup-n-Saucer (like the one we have at home). I went round looking for it and then noticed that it came from this stall which was run by Indians... what a surprise for me. I remember saying... "drink Kopi from the Chinese Stall and Teh-Tarik from the Indian Stall"... well, if this is as good as it looks... you could get both here. Must try next time I'm there.
Near by... Blk 226-G, AMK Ave 1 or St 22,
01-685 ~ New Generation Confectionery.
Open very early, by 6am they were busy starting their day.
I only a visual observation... has a nice range n variety of cakes, bread, biscuits and kueh-kueh.
Wow! It's a matter of time before the world is smoke free. As a smoker, I'm all for this... and from speaking with other smokers, most of them are FOR the idea of banning cigarettes... although they won't initiate it... for obvious reasons.

Understanding 'Motion Induced Blindness' ~ Your best 'Defense Against Accidents on the Roads'.
Someone just sent me this via email. Most of the time info sent needs verification... but this time... it seems believable to me. Very useful in developing your 'Defense Against Accidents on the Roads'.
Read for yourselves...
===. First the picture:
Fix your eyes on the blinking green dot in the middle. Did you notice that while doing this that the 3 yellow dots will blink? Well, actually... they're always there and NOT blinking. If you stare each yellow dot on it's own, it will NOT blink.
Ok... now go on and read the email below that was sent to me.
===. This is what was in the email:
---------- Forwarded message ---------- Date: Thu, Sep 20, 2012 at 11:43 AM Subject: Motion Induced Blindness -MUST READ
This info is only for Careful Road Users... must read and remember.
Motion Induced Blindness
In a motor accident, wherein a speeding car hits a slower moving vehicle coming from the side, the speeding car drivers often swear that they just didn’t see the vehicle coming from the left or right.
Well, they aren’t lying. They really don’t see the vehicle coming from the side, in spite... of broad daylight. This phenomenon on the car drivers’ part is known as “Motion Induced Blindness”. It is unbelievable but it is true, and it is definitely frightening. Armed forces pilots are taught about motion induced blindness during training, because it happens faster at high speeds; and to some extent it is applicable to car drivers also, especially the fast ones. So, if you drive a car, please read this carefully.
Once airborne, pilots are taught to alternate their gaze between scanning the horizon and scanning their instrument panel, and never to fix their gaze for more than a couple of seconds on any single object. They are taught to continually keep their heads on a swivel and their eyes always moving. Because, if you fix your gaze on one object long enough while you yourself are in motion, your peripheral vision goes blind. That’s why it is called motion induced blindness. For fighter pilots, this is the only way to survive in air; not only during aerial combat, but from peacetime hazards like mid-air collisions as well.
Till about three decades ago, this “heads on swivel & eyes moving” technique was the only way to spot other aircraft in the skies around.
Now-a-days they have on-board radars, but the old technique still holds good. Let me give you a small demonstration of motion induced blindness. This is the same demonstration that is used for trainee pilots in classrooms before they even go near an aircraft. Just click on either of the links below. You will see a revolving array of blue crosses on a black background. There is a flashing green dot in the center and three fixed yellow dots around it. If you fix your gaze on the green dot for more than a few seconds, the yellow dots will disappear at random…, either singly, or in pairs, or all three together. In reality, the yellow dots are always there. Just watch the yellow dots for some time to ensure that they don’t go anywhere! Link 1: GIF Link ~ http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/03/MotionBlindnessf.gif
(You can alter the background color or the rpm of the array by clicking the appropriate buttons.
So, if you are driving at a high speed on a highway and if you fix your gaze on the road straight ahead, you will not see a car, a scooter, a buggy, a bicycle, a buffalo or even a human being approaching from the side. Now reverse the picture. If you are crossing a road on foot and you see a speeding car approaching…, there’s a 90% chance that the driver isn’t seeing you, because his/her peripheral vision may be blind! And you may be in that blind zone

Never underestimate what the mind can do. If the stupid are smart, then the smart have more... learning to do. Who's smart? Who's stupid? It's all in our minds, but our minds don't get it. Leave it alone, it springs a surprise. Try to work it, it breaks down in size. Never underestimate what the mind can do. Who's smart? Who's stupid? I leave it to you.
"So basically here's what this election comes down to. They're betting that between now and November you're going to come down with amnesia. They figure you're going to forget what there agenda did to this country. They think you'll just believe that they've changed.
These are the folks whose policies help devastate our middle class. They drove our economy into a ditch.
And we got in there and put on our boots. And we pushed and we shoved and we were sweating. These guys were standing, watching us, sipping on a Slurpee. And they were pointing at us saying, 'how come you're not pushing harder? how come you're not pushing faster?' And then when we finally got the car up--and it's got a few dings and a few dents. It's got some mud on it. We're going to have to do some work on it. They point out to everybody and say:
'Look what these guys did to your car!'
After we got it out of the ditch, and then they got the nerve to ask for the keys back.
I don't want to give them the keys back. They don't know how to drive."
