Day 4, 7 aug 2011

First location from our itinerary of the day… Dr. Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall.

tired guys… we’re all tired..

ahead…

we reached the entrance

Just in time for their marching session~

 

its very near to Taipei 101

We lost our way to our destination so we asked the reception counter for direction to Taipei 101. Check out this, if you’re Presbyopia, you can borrow the spec on the desk..

our “been there” mark~

Then from the memorial hall, we walked to Taipei central city… To shinkong Mitsukoshi..

nice lonely bench…

This is my favorite… Loving it…

the balcony of Shin Kong Mitsukoshi

the street

Lunch time~

Had our lunch at the food court downstairs.. Although it’s a food court, but the food there was not bad… Edible and some of them was nice… I had pork burger and salad from MOS Burger while others bought from the stalls… It’s pretty hard for me to survive there as I don’t know how to order food with all those menu in Chinese characters… Starving to death in Taiwan…

pork burger and salad~

chicken~

oyster noodle~

milk tea~

 

sweet treat~

Shopping~

My best hauls~ Jill Stuart cosmetics and skincare~ loving ’em~

while waiting for Irene and Chin.. they came and join later after the appointment with wedding boutique..

Taipei 101.. Nothing to see… I rather stay in Mitsukoshi coz there are one or two in particular are all cosmetics and fragrances.. Super loving it..

Rich aunties bought handbags inside here…

Lastly the uber famous Shilin night market…

Check out the queue for the XXL fried chicken…

deliciously~

Love the Taiwanese hot dogs.. This stall in particular… In front of the Nike shop…

yummyyyy~

Shihlin Night market street…

Back home with a cab after that… Super tired.. Feet pain like smoked salmon… Almost numb…

But very very happy with with the hauls~

free gift, the cosmetics casing…

 

Pastries for everybody~

Check out the cute hand fan above… Someone broke the Rilakkuma fan… and i had to buy a Hello Kitty to replace it.. Too hot cant handle the temperature…

comfort zone for Deepavali…

finally… updating very slowly.. of please help… i wanna finish updating my long belated past-dated posts… too much to tell but so little time….

the November… early Nov, my first holiday after so long… its Deepavali holiday weekend… took off and went back to Seremban~ yayy~ seldom took off because Chun is in Spore already.. and I don’t think I have to go back to KL for no reason..

So I decided that I should go back Seremban to visit the Amma… I bought airtic earlier so I can go back cheap… but in the end… it ended up delayed.. delayed… and delayed… my flight was 8.25pm and should be reaching 9.30pm latest… but who knows… it delayed for 2 hours or so… pissed off.. Tired… grouchy… humpp…

In the end I reached 11.30pm… by the time I’m outta the arrival hall… it’s almost 12am… and by the time I reach home, its 1am… very very tiring… Amma is already asleep when I’m home… she’s so excited waiting for me to reach… she already pre-amped Sanku that I’m reaching, when I already msg Sanku via FB… haha… she’s more excited than me.. Before that, every week when I called, she will ask me how many days left till I’ll be back…

Finally I’m back and she’s sleeping… hehe… but she woke up to pee pee and saw me… haha… very excited, I got uncle KC to connect my pink gadgets to the wireless and I let them go to sleep after that.. so me and Win who already reach that evening online the whole night… till I was very sleepy and I had to sleep on the couch waiting for her… it was like that few nights I was there…

The next morning… woke up by the cousins, because Sanku made us toasts… the kaya all the way from JB to Singapore, and from Singapore to Seremban… because the Saeku claim that the kaya from Nyonya Joy very oomph.. So she bought few tubs for Sanku… uncle KC carry all the way home…

Check out the kaya toast~ not bad though.. but when we came to the dining table, its alittle cold already…

Sanku started to cook lunch when we started our breakfast… sorry yah… We didn’t sleep till noon okay… its only 11am max… it’s our fave… the porridge…

japanese topping~ delicious~

Tee hee~ we do some surfing and games while helping with lunch~ as usual… and most of the time…

After lunch, Sanku took us to Jusco so she can do some groceries, then and also buy a hair dye so I can help her with it later in the evening…

Meanwhile, I bought myself a cute mascara and a furry pouch because my current pouch zip tab falloff the place when I took bus to airport that day… what a luck…

fluffy~

couldn’t resist the cute packaging…

Check out what Sanku’s cooking in the kitchen for dinner… She’s making potato wedges for us~ all homemade and handmade~ yumm~ scrumptiously delicious…

whats in the oven?

turnover, and bake again..

Then, the twisted cluster bean sambal and herbal chicken soup boiling~

The dishes~ all home cooked… I miss home cooked food…

i love sambal twisted cluster bean with asparagus~

We moved all the dishes outside so we can enjoy the sunset while having our dinner~ so romantic right? Ha-ha…

my herbal soup~ bugged Amma to boil me red wine noodle… in the end, they said no more red wine..

waiting…

When we’re waiting for everyone to come to the table for our dinner~ here’s Amma.. She’s so cute… Especially with that expression…

Time passed really fast… the whole night, we online and play games like usual… and when it’s time to sleep, meimei will wake me up and we went upstairs and sleep in the cousin’s room…

We and the cousins hardly talked but we fellow-shipped… through the computer and other gadgets… Even Amma was involved… she and her ancient “fu chou” proverbs… check out the “Talking Tom” by my Amma~ featuring her ancient ‘fu chow” proverbs… Everybody’s busy with their online and pc games… and everyone connected to each other… everyone are happy… that’s how simple our life is..

When the night came, Sanku had to call the kids via mobile to get them to sleep… you know… house too big… no energy to walk down the stairs and chase the kids to sleep… haha…

The next morning, we woke up earlier than usual.. because today, Sanku is gonna take us out for dim sum breakfast~

On the way…

the front…

middle..

back..

Check out Amma.. and her seatbelt..

And this is the watch me and Win bought for Amma.. She’s showing off…

The interior of the restaurant…

Min Kok Dim Sum~

Dim sum came~ but very slow service… have to ask and ask a few times only our food came..

tired of  waiting…

the dim sum finally came…

porridge~

“char siu pau” bbq bun and chee cheong fun

“lo mai kai” glutinous rice with mushroom chicken

Enjoy eating… the same way of eating fishball…

everybody started eating~

this is my shy cousin Kristen… she is really very shy… ( ‘ . ‘ )

fried fritters

Sanku recommended the fried fritters… not bad… I love the “wu kok” (fried yam with fillings). Porridge, chee cheong fun, “lo mai kai” glutinous rice with chicken mushroom was not bad… overall it’s quite worth it for its price…

Finally, when everyone’s satisfied… we ordered desserts~ there were 3 desserts to choose from… we ordered all 3 and share share~

There were, longan herbal jelly, honeydew sago with aloevera or nata decoco, and hasima in lemon~

hasima in lemon~

indulging~

See the cute couple~

Passed by Seremban2 Terminal…

That was our brunch… we skipped our lunch because we’re very full from the dim sum we had…. So back at home, Sanku prepared potato curry puffs for teatime~

puff pastry, so convenient~

the filling~

walla~ all done… exactly like those sold in the bakery..

Amma bugged me to dye her hair… and I asked her if she get any black and white permission from the guardian, but Saeku did called me and asked me to dye her hair too… hehe..

the plastic cover came together in the box.. pretty neat.. except for its not really bubblely..

Saeku bought this bubble hair dye in BLACK for her… she said she wants pure black, not even dark brown… Liese don’t have black ones you know… anyone wants to know where to buy black bubble dye, ask me.. LOL…

Check out my cute Amma… she fall asleep even before I started to do her hair… I was busy mixing the dye…

almost done…

In the end, Amma is so happy with her new black hair and very proud of the hair… =.=

And the result of the hair dye was pretty good, I even got my nails dyed… so black… I had forgotten to wear the gloves while helping Amma to rinse her hair… I provide good service, till even help her to rinse hair… lol..

That evening, Sanku prepared dinner… she cooked us miso soup, and rice for Amma and Daniel… they’re picky eater, they don’t take something too extreme.. like miso soup…

They have some lady fingers, corn cob, cabbage and also sambal stingray~ yum~ and of course.. we dig in as usual too~

sambal stingray in the oven~

It has been some time I heard that someone always said Sanku always cook miso soup for Win, that’s why when I was shopping at Daiso, it came to my mind to buy soba so she can cook for me too~ here’s one of the soba I bought, and we cooked them that day..

I asked Saeku to join me for Deepavali in Seremban but she was so busy to entertain me… so she was abandoned at JB, while we were happy partying in Seremban… I left her something special…

some stingray bones…

=) cheeky me~ sorry yah, only left littlebit…

The next day, Sunday was pretty normal… Amma called me early in the morning via mobile… bugged me to wake up to go to the church… got ourselves ready… we went to the church and had some brunch in the church and back home… Sanku was busy that day… she had some other stuffs on so her pastor’s kids were left with us… we had to babysit the little hyperactive kids… but they were playing with Dan’s computer so we did not do much of chasing here and there…

Sanku packed some lemang, rending and curry for us for dinner, coz she had another function on.. so she had to bring those food for them too…

i miss my secondary school life… Linda’s mom used to pack me rendang and lemang for break in school once every year during Raya..

She rushed off, left us with the dinner… almost had Win thrown at home because she was late… supposed gonna send her off to the KTM before the 2nd trip sending me off to airport.. So in the end, Sanku didn’t wait for Win so everybody sent me to the airport that night… including Amma… so happy~

Reached Spore about 12am… grabbed this Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Set before I left Changi…

i really needed the eye cream… the set was totally worth it…

Chun came to the airport and picked me up…

=)

another happy family gathering~

-sorry for the long post… had to do all in one… save time…

I bought airtic earlier so I can go back cheap… but in the end… it ended up delayed.. delayed… and delayed… my flight was 8.25pm and should be reaching 9.30pm latest… but who knows… it delayed for 2 hours or so… pissed off..

September 10th, 2010 >> attrezzare, ❤ beautilicious~, baby's playground, birthdays`~, eastern, hot pot, skincare, yummy yummy~

on the 20th last month..

i took a day off, (Friday half day and Saturday another half) and went back to KL for the last time, for… long… Chun's will be in Singapore in Sept, so i had to went back and pack my stuffs in his house… my flight was at 5pm so i had to take a day off… will lessen my trip flying on airplane after this… uhuh.. missing the window seat…

image03.jpg

 

i got myself a sunblock from Kose.. i think its cheaper in Budget Terminal compare to Changi Terminal… as i remembered the last time i took a flight, i was in Changi Terminal it costs about $50++.. i was tempted to buy but in the end i decided maybe not that time.. so when i saw that this time, i bought it coz it costs me $38 for a 50ml bottle.. it's not bad, but quite greasy… hope that it will block my face from the sun… preventing black spots..

image04.jpg

 

compared to the Elemente Protective Moisturizer, Elemente is better of course… trying other options~

image05.jpg

 

the next day, dated my little sis out.. brought her to Sushi King as usual…

image08.jpg

 

and also, a cute flavored popcorn i bought from a popcorn gallery in ION, Cornery for meimei.. temped to try some before i passed it to her.. this is Butterscotch floured.. the best i tasted.. they even have curry, tomyam, green tea, chocolate, strawberry, bubblegum and etc flavored popcorn~ interesting right?? you should get some next time…

the queue was pretty long, we waited while walked around the park…

image16.jpg

 

the environment was pretty nice.. very calming.. the warm lights… although it's a hot pot shop, their air-cond was not hot at all… coz usually seems like those hot pot shop air-cond doesn't work..

image11.jpg
 
image14.jpg

 

the stove… so high tech… it's individual hot pot for your information… totally hygienic..

image09.jpg
 
image10.jpg

 

i ordered 1 pax fish steamboat pot, shared with Chun coz we're still full from Sushi King~

image13.jpg
portion for 1 pax, include the fish fillet far behind in this picture..

uh~ i added-on the lettuce~ oh its totally yummy~

 

Uncle Ben, wife and twins joined us~

image19.jpg

hmm…. the another twin escaped~

dinner doesn't seem to be enough.. so Irene suggested overtime… not working OT ok… tired of working OT.. its time to enjoy Starker @ OverTime, Sunway Giza.

image20.jpg

image21.jpg
 
image23.jpg
 
image24.jpg
 
image25.jpg
aunty Irene ordered Margarita~
 
image26.jpg
