    Then I replied:" Thank you for putting a 'mini' mini market in the office..."

    Ma, don worry about me here in SG. As you can see in the picture. I definitely won't die of hunger. We are provided with biscuits and drinks in the office...

    What I did last weekend

    Friday night - Reached KL around 2.30am!!! Thanks to the accident in AYE that made my bus caught in the jam for one hour. What to do? All the drivers are too "CONCERN" about the accident, everyone drove slowly to see what happened. Dear picked me up then we went for a drink so that we can catch up with each other on what happened when I was in SG while he was in KL. After that he sent me home but that was not the end of my day yet. I was unable to fall asleep, maybe because I drank Ice Tea, and the caffeine was doing their job... So, I continued to read the book that I was reading, My sister's keeper by Jodi Picoult. And finally I fell asleep around 6am...

    Saturday - Woke up at 8.30am. Means I slept for 2 1/2 hours only. T___T
    Then drove mama out for breakfast. After that prepared lunch and played with Asher (the boy whom my mom babysits). Next, went to do hair rebonding - 5 hours!!! Meet dear at night after he finished work. Then we went to sing 'K' until 3.30am. End of my Saturday...

    Sunday - Woke up around 12.00pm. Had a 8 hours good night sleep, so I was not as moody as Saturday morning. Had breakfast with dear, then we went to Ikano, he wanted to get me a pair of CROCS, but they don't have the size that I wanted. So, did not buy. Then, dear sent me home before he went to work. Reached home around 4pm, surfed net and prepared salad for dinner. Papa sent me to KL Sentral after dinner. But the bad news is, the train was delayed for 2 hours!!! argghhh..... Nvm, I had my book with me. Around 11.20pm, the train finally arrived. After 3 hours of waiting, I was feeling a bit tired already. When I was entering the coach with my 2 super heavy bags, I lost my balance and stepped on the gap... luckily I did not fall. I was able to grab something, I forgot what I grabbed, probably the door knob or some bars near the door. Due to my clumsy-ness, I have got myself a blue-black mark on on right arm. T____T

    Ok lah... Not that serious actually.... Just a little bit of blue-black nia...

    Monday - I was late to work lor, what else? Reached office @ 10.45am only. Thanks to KTMB!!!

    My valentine's day...

    My valentine's day gift from him...

    No flowers, no chocolates...
    No dinner as well since he was to work. But I had dinner with my family members in Jogoya.
    But wait, that was not all. Other than the Goldclass movie tickets, he bought me a few more things too, and they are all from GUESS!!! But small small things only...... Like key chain, note pad, coin purse, and small recycle bag with lots of pink 'G' printed on it, and one super big black bag with the big triangle GUESS logo on it. No photos...

    To be honest, dear ar, I dont really like that two bags lor... I wonder when will I use them. Probably when I have kids, then I will use them to put milk powder, flask, warmer, and diapers... :P Sorry, I am sure you will feel sad when you read this. Can I choose what I want next time? Like you chose CROCS as your Valentine day's gift, I bought 2 pairs some more, you must be very happy right?

    I had a great Valentine's day. It was the first time we watch movie in this so called Platinum Movie Suites. So, it was a memorable Valentine's day for us. Thanks dear!!!
    The Seats are fully adjustable with the recline button at the side of the seat. Call buttons are located at the table on the corner of the seat. There are only 24 seats in the movie suite. But too bad I did not bring my camera!!! I thought it was going to be a normal movie session for us. Dim Cee... he bought the Goldclass. But he seemed like enjoying the seat so much, I think we will go there again, and I will make sure I bring my camera with me if we ever go there again.

    I miss you so much!!!
    I am coming back tonight! See ya...

    Valentine's day @ Jogoya

    Had dinner in Jogoya with my family members on Valentine's day, without dear again, he was working. We have made our reservation 3 weeks in advance. We reserved a table for 9 persons @ 7pm. At 7pm, we went to the counter and informed them that we will be late for 10 minutes as my parents were late. The gal said ok. Then when my parents arrived, we went to the counter again, but we need to re-queue and there were quite a number of customers in front of us. So, we waited for like 10 minutes.
    When it was our turn, it was around 7.20pm. You know what the guy said? Sorry your reservation is 7pm, you are late, we have to cancel your reservation.
    Of cos we shoot back lah, I said:" We came on time, we informed that gal that we will be 10 minutes late, she said ok." Then the guy started to speak in foreign language with his colleague, and showed his "not syiok" expression to us. But we don't care, we made the reservation and we informed them we will be late. They can't cancel our reservation, right? He had no choice, but to give us a table. In fact, there are some customers who did not make any reservation, but came early, and the stuff promised to put them under waiting list. That's why they tried to cancel our table, and give it to those who were under waiting list. This is not fair for those who called few weeks in advance, came all the way far town, right? They should call the customers who are late, ask them whether they are coming, or inform them before the reservation is being canceled.

    Okay, photos.....

    Kyanne & me.
    We were made from the same factory, why is she so much taller than me?
    Eldest always shortest?
    Bought 2 pairs of CROCS for dear, CROCS in Malaysia only give ugly plastic bag, unlike last year I got nice paper bag when I bought it from Singapore.
    So, I look like "siao po" carrying 2 pairs of CROCS with that 2 ugly plastic bags and walking around in Pavilion!

    With Vicky.
    Again, taller than me.
    I think I gained weight after CNY. Look at my fat arms!!!

    With Lily, same height but I still look shorter, aiks...

    The 4 of us...
    Our parents' Bao Beis.....

    Again... how? do we look alike? Not many photos were taken as we were concentrating on eating only.

    My appetizer, main course and dessert in Jogoya. I had 9 of them. GENG mou?

    I ate so much food that day. Shark fin soup, sushi, sashimi, double boiled soup, bbq fish, meat, lots of prawns, steam fish, one piece of cheese cake, one pieces of choc cake, chinese herbal jelly, few scoops of ice cream. For drinks, I had at least 3 glasses of red wine, and 3 more glasses of cocktail. I hope what I have eaten that day worth what I have paid for...... If not, rugi ma...
    In fact, I should name this post title something like "How a cheapskate eat in Jogoya..." which I think can attract more hits for my blog :P

    Prosperity Biscuits



    Three... Jang Jang Jang...

    My so called future brother-in-law, Eugene bought this Amway Prosperity Biscuits for us during CNY. I found it cute and opened one to try it out. I was expecting phase like "Today is your lucky day, go buy 4D number now..." or "You will receive a surprise from your lover" :P
    I got a phase "Knowledge without practice is nothing", which means nothing to me......

    oh ya... Before I forget

    Love is the most wonderful of all feelings in this world. To all loving birds out there, hope you guys will have a unforgettable and sweetest Valentine's day!

    Toblerone everywhere...


    Valentine's day is just around the corner...
    You do not have to remember the date, but you will be reminded...

    When you go shopping, you can see tons of Toblerone chocolates with it's valentine's day packaging everywhere especially in Watsons and Supermarkets and you know Valentine's days is coming.
    Even when you are at home stalking your favorite blogs, you will see a lot of advertorials on Toblerone Chocolates. Do you think those 'famous' bloggers really buy Toblerone chocolates for their lover? Maybe they only give those FREE Toblerone chocolates from the advertiser to their lover. Agree? They earn $$$ by writing advertorial, I am sure they will buy better gifts...

    Why only Toblerone ads? Ferrero Rocher, where are yours?

    Girls out there, will you be happy if u get Chocolates or flowers as your Valentine's day gift?
    For me...
    I am not a chocolates lover. Flowers can't last long and I don't like fake flowers.
    I think it is better to ask your lover what he/she need/want instead of wasting money buying something that he/she might not like.

    Lonely Sunday

    I was in SG last weekend. Decided to stay here for one weekend after a long break in KL. Time to DETOX after eating so many fried food and oily food during CNY. Chloe was sick, so she was unable to accompany me on Sunday. But must thank her for willing to accompany me on Saturday although she was not feeling well.
    I woke up around 10 am. Had some biscuits and a cup of instant mushroom soup for breakfast. Then I went to the temple as usual (I go to temple whenever I spend my weekend in SG). After that went for lunch alone, food is tasteless when eating alone and that's why I ordered Tom Yam so that at least I can taste something spicy. And I was right! The tomyam soup there is super spicy, and they put "Fatt fong kam" (kaffir lime) in the soup. Yummy! Will definitely go back for their TomYam soup or fish soup!
    Then went to Bugis Junction, tried to hunt for Valentine's day present. But mission failed! Saw very nice Casio watches, and the price is reasonable too, did not buy because I know dear wants a Omega watch and not Casio, Cyma, or Seiko watch. Getting a Omega watch for him is like a mission impossible to me, since I am so stingy. Right? But hor, I don't mind getting a Casio watch as a gift.
    After that I went to Vivo. Started to hunt for his present again. Walked from 3pm to 8pm but did not buy anything! But at least I decided what to get for him - another pair of CROCS but different design this time (he requested it). I did not buy it in Vivo because to get it in Malaysia is cheaper, and as Chinese, I very 'pantang larang' wan, cannot buy shoes during CNY wan... why? Cos it sounds "hai" (Sigh...) in Cantonese, and it will bring you bad luck for that year.

    I need some info here, is there any CROCS shop near Lot 10 area? Kindly let me know if u ever seen one there.

    This is my dinner on Sunday. Bought it in Vivo mart.
    $4.90 for 8 sushi (Please don't convert, if convert sure "mm seh dak" buy wan)

    And that's the end of my lonely Sunday...

    2. Link or tell a bit about the person who gave you the award...

    Hmmm, Cherish Tulips is the only blogger friend I have which falls into the "lain-lain" group of race. She is very pretty, a 75% Kadazan and 25% Chinese. She got married not long ago, and I like her wedding gown very much! It was simple and nice! She has silky long hair which make me jealous as well......

    3. Each one of you who receive this award must list down 10 facts / hobbies about yourself...
    1. I eat a lot! And my meal portion has to be big, I can eat more than my dear. Sound scary huh? I like bland food. Sushi, salad, steamboat are my favorites! And I like Bak Kut Teh too!
    2. I am stingy! Kiamsiap! Cheapskate! I save save and save my money. But I am very happy when I am spending someone else's money... I only buy things which I need, I do not simply buy things that I want.
      My boss asked me one day. "Why are u so stingy?" I said :" I am saving for rainy days boss". Boss replied: " Means you only spend during rainy days???" Me: "......"
    3. I am a Malaysian working in Singapore who "Balik Kampung" every week! You can ask me questions on which bus to take, which is the cheapest, from where to where, and how's the bus schedule like. I think I am very good on that. But, please do not ask me question like:" You not sienz meh? Not tired meh?"
    4. I love reading. But, I am too kiamsiap to buy magazines and books. I buy books from warehouse sales and my colleague Fina is my book supplier now, she passes books that she has read to me. My magazines supplier? hehehe, thanks to my dear, who buys me magazines on monthly basis.
    5. I am not sure about my marital status... But I think I will know it by the end of this year.
    6. I like to snap photos! But I am not good in it and I do not have a good camera.

    9. I am very proud of my dear. Not because he is handsome or what. I am very very very proud of him because he lost weight. He lost not only 1-2 kg nor 5-10 kg, but he lost more than 50kg!!! He was 123kg years ago, and he is now 60-65kg only. He "gam fei" just because he wants to look good in our wedding photos! I am proud of him!
    10. Okay! The last one! I love my family members! I cannot live without them. And of course this includes my dear! Muaxx! Love you all!

    4. Pass this award to 10 bloggers and link them in your blog.

    Family first

    Dong Zen Temple - Jenjarom (Part II)

    More photos......

    This is so called a "stage" in front of the temple...
    People gather in front of the stage and pray together. After prayers, everyone will get a small bag of rice. The rice has to be poured into the rice bin at home.

    Brighten ur OX year luck by lighting up a lotus candle...

    What is this? It looks like shower cap for factory workers. But why I wore on my feet?

    Not only me, in fact everyone in the temple is wearing the blue shower cap. This is a good idea, prayers do not have to take out their shoes, they don't have to worry about their new shoes will get stolen, and it won't dirty the floor...

    Parade time...

    Guan Yin niang niang, come nearer to me. Please sprinkle some magic water on me...

    Opppss.... very sorry, I donno the name of this god. "yu loi fatt zou"??? Does anybody know???

    I donno this one as well. Chinese Cupid?

    Ge Ge or "Gong lui"?

    Dong Zen Temple - Jenjarom (Part I)

    My one and the only family outing during CNY...

    Visited Dong Zen Temple in Jenjarom with my family members, Kyanne's friends and auntie Evyce's family last Saturday. We started our journey around 4pm from my house(as early as possible to avoid jam). It was raining heavily during the journey. We had dinner in one of the seafood restaurants that recommended by Ah Xian- Astro AEC. Not going to blog about the food here, the food so so only, not up to my expectations, and the place is quite dirty. We continued our journey after dinner.

    Reached Dong Zen Temple around 7.30pm. A good time to snap photos...

    Papa snapped this photo when my auntie and cousins were not ready.

    Wishing tree...

    Wishing cards are being sold. RM10 each... (expensive wish huh?)

    The trees look like trees with fireflies in Kuala Selangor.

    Nice calligraphy on lantern...

    Dessert Bar

    Met up with Edward Boey for dinner on Thursday night. Thank you so much for taking me to Solaris!!! I have tried to go there twice but I couldn't find the place. I thought it is a shopping mall because Fina told me that her friend has opened a shop there, selling designer bags. But the place is more like a MAKAN place for me, full of restaurants! The famous Japanese Buffet TENJI is there, I tried to make reservations for Valentine's day, but it has been fully booked! Nvm, booked Jogoya, even better! lol

    After we had our dinner at sushi king, Edwards gave me a treat on dessert! We went to Dessert Bar @ Mont Kiara. Thank you ya... Next time my turn pulak, k???

    k k k, not going to write so much, I am feeling a bit dizzy now, I think I am gonna to fall sick soon, went to the clinic, but it was closed during lunch time. Will try again later...


    Eat me to stay cool???

    I love fruits... They are so colorful...

    Mini ice cream balls...

    Ice cream ball, after dipping the choc and peanuts... Like Ferrero Rocher ???

    Belgium chocolates, too sweet for me, but the sweet guy EDWARD enjoyed it very much!
