December 28th, 2010 >> ❤heart drinks, baby's playground, desserts, eastern, excursion, hot pot, yummy yummy~

We usually go to JB almost every weekend… the second week of November, we went to JB during the weekend as usual to relax… we had Sushi King almost every time we went to JB so finally they have decided to eat something different that week; because of someone, he crave for Sushi King all the time…  we choose to dine in Nippon Yataimura that week… Food was good and price was better…

the environment was good.. nice and calm with Japanese deco..

check out their gaming station… for the kids while the parents having meal..

After the wonderful lunch, Chun went for body massage and we went shopping~ but after awhile… we, the aunties felt very tired and lastly we sat down at Starbucks the whole evening… I love having coffee @ Starbucks especially during November to December because they have the Christmas edition cups~ I love Christmassy feeling~~

tried my Face Time too… my 1st attempt.. coz Chun’s place doesn’t have wifi, so we did it at Starbucks.

the Face Time… i wish the camera could be better..

Later on that coming week…

We finally gather and had steamboat together after so long we’ve planned… Chun came after work later and we’re there early to claim our reservation but ended up still have to wait because its full house… and no one refuse to finish eating… so when it’s our turn, we have to separate to 2 tables… because no more long table available…

Check out the foods… the ingredients were pretty fresh; it’s worth the queue… I love corn in soup~

i love the soup~

meat.. beef and fish~

scallop~

our food~

We usually come to this shop to have buffet steamboat most of the time… it has been a while since we last dined in… I think maybe for few months? Should be…

And normally those seafood on our table are Aunty Li Ching’s… and this time, Chun is here to accompany her… look at the clam?? Or scallop? And you look at the thing… Aunty Li Ching is so strong she broke it…

aunty Li Ching broke it…

we started camwhoring after awhile because we’re so full already… really can’t eat anymore…

he’s still eating because he came quite late… and he continues eating…. eat and eat and eat because he said he lose some weight since he came to Spore…

this meal was to celebrate Boris came back to Singapore again…

naughty people..

After the heaty and messy dinner, the other table wanted to go back and I stopped them… invited them to have desserts together @ Ah Chew’s…

And on the weekend, I took off on Saturday to have fun @ Wild Wild Wet, Downtown East… I got some tickets from my office and I asked my girlfriends and boyfriends out for FUN~

Early in the morning, me and cousin Rainie woke up and got ourselves ready and took a bus to Pasir Ris… met up with the others at the MRT and took a bus to Downtown East~

Reached~

the ticket collection counter…

the inside part of the park~

Got ourselves changed ready to attack the water~

Checking out the fun theme park… Actually it was quite small… we were there around 11am, and we were done playing around 1pm latest… the sky became dark… and it looks like it’s gonna rain so we went to collect our lunch… Provided together with the tickets…

mcD lunch set… but its incomplete… the buns, only have the chicken meat, no mayo and no veggies… no fries… huhu… but what can you expect from a free ticket? Lol.. anyway they have apples~

Look at this two aunties… I had to stand far away from them.. because they’re eating durian puff… yucks…

So I went in to the cake shop and bought myself mini cakes~ I think I bought double chocolate, tiramisu, mocha and Oreo cheese~ yummy~

Emicakes~ heart~ ❤

Waited for my colleague to come and collect ticket from me.. and left after that… tired… drop by White Sands had Old Town Kopitiam lunch again before heading home…

comfort zone for Deepavali…

December 19th, 2010 >> accessories, ❤ beautilicious~, baby's playground, cosmetics, eastern, family, holiday foods, homecooked, malaysian, seremban, skincare, special occasions, yummy yummy~

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…

Check out Amma.. and her seatbelt..

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

tired of  waiting…

“lo mai kai” glutinous rice with mushroom chicken

Enjoy eating… the same way of eating fishball…

everybody started eating~

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~

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~
