One of my students doing the long jump during my school's Pre-Sports Day events. This guy, Vincent, is a basketballer, so he naturally gets a lot of airtime in his jumps. Some of my other students who saw this picture joked that Vincent cheated by riding on an invisible magic flying chair to make the distance. *Laughs*

I remember taking the picture above as my dad fed the swamp macaques with groundnuts bought from a roadside stalls.
The macaques of Tanjung Ketapang live in the trees of the mangrove swamp forests, but they regularly get their food from either visitors (who feed them with fruit and/or nuts) or raiding nearby food stalls at night.
Discovered the above picture on 9gag and I just have to say something here.
Actually, it should be 'imaginary' instead of 'complex'. For it to be 'complex', there must be both the real part and the imaginary part, expressed in conjugate pairs. Regarding the above picture, squarerooting negative one will result in i, the imaginary number, which by itself is not yet a complex quantity.
I ordered the sliced fish set with tom yam soup and iced carrot milk as my drink.
Since I had been eating so much earlier that day, I decided to just have veggies and seafood for the night. I even let my sister have the noodles so I could skimp on the carbs.
Gosh, I can't remember what fish these are, but they're really good. The first few slices were just dumped into the boiling tom yam broth and eaten well-cooked. My sister suggested I have them shabushabu style where I let each slice be lightly simmered in the boiling soup. The end result is a well-cooked outside and a fresh sashimi-like texture inside, which was a more delightful taste. I will definitely be having my fish slices this way for my next steamboat dinner.
As an a la carte add-on I had the Pacific clams which costs an additional 14 bucks. These were really tasty, although they're a bit chewy and tough despite having been boiled in the broth for more than 15 minutes. I didn't mind the chewy texture though.
Overall the service was quick and food was great. The tom yam broth is quite spicy so if you can't stand spiciness I suggest you just order the plain broth. Each table is set for 4 people so it is advisable that you go in fours so that everyone gets to use their own hotplate.
Around dinnertime the place is quite packed despite even during weeknights so you should either come early or make booking arrangements to avoid the long wait.
To my generous cousin Liza, a thousand thanks for treating us to such an awesome dinner! I will return the favor if I get my bonus next month. A big capital IF! :)
