This happened some time back, Mommy booked everyone in the family for a dinner on Saturday night.
It was a night for our family.
So as good son and daughter, both my sis and I stayed home.
Dinner was pretty simple but I don't know how long my parents took to prepare it.
There were salmon sashimi, boiled mini octopus, and baked mussels.
Oh there's sushi rice and seaweed too if we want to eat it with the salmon sashimi.
Boiled Mini Octopus
After dinner, we cleaned up a little and proceed to our upstairs living room for a movie.
MOVIE TITLE: WooHoo~
Yes, this movie is two month old already.
But who cares la!! And..and..we bought the original DVD to support the hard work of Malaysian Broadcast.
Its a pretty good movie, even better when coupled with good family company!!
hehehe gonna make a point to have a family movie screening every week.
Can't wait to buy the media player so we can watch movies on the TV.
We should spend more time with our family, agree??

Every chinese will know that it is Cheng Beng season now.
Its time to be a filial child or grandchild.
Its time to clean the cemetary for our late ancestors and pray for them.
Every year, my family (along with extended family) will head up to the mountain next to Tian Hou Gong (天后宫) at Taman Seputeh.
Because my grandparents are both cremenated, we don't have to go to the cemetary.
Instead, we have to go to a temple where my grandparents' ashes are kept to pray.
This year, its no different.
Placing food on the table
Not for the living..
..its for the late ancestors.
Hurts the eyes.
Everyone is hoping the dead will have a good afterlife
Everything was normal, until my grandparents finished "eating" and its our turn to eat.
We realised that the usual eating spot was closed so we thought it'll be fine if we find a shady spot to eat.
Before we can take our food out, a volunteer from the temple told us that we cannot eat in the temple area.
Now, we have to find another spot to go makan so my dad suggested to go to Lake Garden (a.k.a Taman Tasik Perdana) to have a "picnic".
Today, lake garden was pretty packed because UOB decided to have a function there.
There weren't many parking and as we drove further into the park, we were stuck in a jam.
Yes, not caught..but stuck.
The initial 2 lane road turned into a single lane because as ignorant Malaysians,
we like to park by the side of the road because its really convenient for us.
Now, how can a single lane road accomodate vehicles coming from 2 directions?
In the end, vehicles from both direction can't move and there was a huge confusion over there.
Feeling upset, our convoy (5 cars in total) decided to make a turn and get out of the park.
We then decided that the national memorial would be the next best place as its just opposite Lake Garden.
Upon arriving, everyone was so hungry that we just sat at a shady place and have our little "picnic" there.
We were at a really awkward place as there are tourists walking from the entrance to the bus.
Everyone will look at us with curiousity, thinking if there's someone selling food.
It was really funny la but who cares, the whole family is together and that's all that matters.
Today was really really crazy because we never expected these events to happen.
First, our usual makan spot was closed.
Second, we mistook many road just to reach our destination, Lake Garden.
Thrid, got stuck in Lake Garden..in the car.
Fourth, makan at an awkward location.
Looks like we have 1 year to look for a decent picnic spot for next year's Cheng Beng.
So how's your Cheng Beng?? Come share it!!

If you don't know yet, my family *dad in particular* is a HUGE fan of Haribo Gummy Bears.
These little gummy bears come in many colours and are very chewy.
Some people find them really tasteless but we just love it!!
For those of you who haven't seen it before, walk to the nearest cold storage and find this..
Haribo Gummy Bears!!!
League of Gummi's!!!!
Oh this reminds me so much about Disney Channel's Gummi Bears!!
Okay, 'nuff said..
Like ze title said, if Germany has Haribo Gummy Bears, Malaysia has..???
What are these????
Hoi Tin Tong Gui Ling Gao Gummy!!!!
These little tortoises are very cute.
They are even more detailed than Haribo's Gummy Bears.
But like them, these tortoise gummies are also pretty tasteless.
But it has the similiar texture of the gummy bears and are chewy as well.
So thats all for this post~!!!
See you next time!!!

Time flies so very fast.
Its my birthday once again and yes, i'm getting old.
*though I still look younger than my age*
I have so many lovely people to celebrate my birthday with.
Can't thank them enough.
I'll compile the photos and post it in the next post laa.
For now, lets just concentrate on my birthday itself. March 10, 2010.
It was a Wednesday.
As usual, I only plan to celebrate my day with my family.
Its a day dedicated to my mom for bringing me to this world.
Its also a day dedicated to both my parents for taking care of me for over 20 years.
Also as usual, I'm a full vegetarian on that day.
This means no meat, no alcohol.
Since I already started working, going to the office has been part of my life.
As usual *again* I went to my office at 10:15am.
Had a meeting at 11:30am when Chien Hui texted me "what time's your lunch? I wanna find you for lunch."
Since I know that the meeting will last pretty long, I just told her that I won't be having lunch because I've got a meeting going on.
The meeting lasted until approximately 3:00pm.
Then I called Yinli since she texted me.
Manatau, she was at Hometown Kopitiam - just 2mins walk from my office!!
OMG OMB OMA!!!
I rushed to find her. As soon as I saw that lil girl, she teared.
The poor girl took a train from Kampar at 9am,
took the LRT to kelana jaya LRT station,
took a shuttle bus to the Curve,
arrived at 1:30pm,
waited until 3:00pm only to hear me say I have to continue my meeting later.
Good thing I have a very nice boss.
He and my colleagues treated us lunch and gave me the rest of the day off.
He said "She has made her presence felt by coming all the way from kampar, its your turn to let her feel your presence. Don't you ever think about work and the meeting later."
And I know, having your presence felt isn't just about being there physically.
Theres more to that.
So thats all for the biggest surprise for my 24th birthday.
Till next time!!!!!
Where can I have a blogpost without a photo??
Hrm..there you go, a photo of us!!
Thank you so much for the surprise!!!!!
Till next time!!!
