A Year Older…….

Yesterday was my birthday. Those days I usually look forward this day. Somehow I don’t feel any difference now other than my age increased. Yet, that is reality.

Next year onwards, I am no longer calling myself as in age 20s! Not eligible anymore. Huhuhuu….

Darn…why am I sounding so sad larrr….. Its ok as long as I keep myself well, I still can look youthful right? (still not accepting the fact).

Well, I got a week off during the Raya Festive & Malaysia Independence Day! I can have a whole week enjoying life.(by being a Sleeping Beauty)

HAPPY HOLIDAYS to all Malaysians!!

*not going to put so many candles. So worry the cake will sink*

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME….HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME…HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME….HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME…………………………………… yeah..claps!

Hi Tea @ SELERA Coffee House, Klana Resort Seremban

In Seremban, there isn’t much choice or places to enjoy a decent hi-tea buffet. Normally we would either go to Klana Resort Seremban or Royale Bintang Seremban. Marcus’s birthday falls on 6th June, therefore we decided to celebrate his birthday a day earlier. In order to avoid any disappointment, we made our reservation with SELERA Coffee House.  We arrived there at about 12.30pm.

Happy Birthday Vernice

Vernice, my lil lovely niece is now 2 years old. The rather playful and mischievous  girl is now able to sing, run, play and speak. Her mom, my sis planned a small birthday party among the family members. It was an early birthday celebration. Since the exact date falls on weekday, we decided to celebrate it few days earlier on weekend where everyone will be home. Vernice adores Barney, the purple dinosaur so much till her mom actually set a so-called theme based on Barney.

 

I requested her to pose with her toys.

 

 

I requested her to pose with her Barney stuff. She can actually understand my orders well.

 

She likes people to take photos of her. Each time she sees me with a camera; she will point to the camera and says “yiyi….foetoe foetoe..” After each shot; she will come back to me to view the playback.

 

Sis came home with a box of cupcakes with Barney figurines which she ordered from “miza mizo” with a fair price of RM50(12 chocolate cuppies). Vernice was so delighted when she sees it. With a wide smile on her face; she whispered softly ‘wah…Barneeeeyyyyyyyyy’.


 

 

The Barney party pack that we bought from Jusco.

 

Food prepared for the celebration.

 

Vernice likes popo’s fried noodle very much. Till she insisted to feed by herself.

 

Vernice’s Barney bowl. Each time she uses this bowl for her meal; she will say, “Barney oi oi” (Barney is asleep).

 

Her attention was fully diverted to the Barney program.

 

Hug & Kisses to popo.

 

Vernice distributed her Barney party hat to everyone of us and requires everyone to put it on.

 

Mummy; can I taste it? (sambil cubit B.J’s ear)

 

I’ll try Baby Bop.

 

 

Barney, Baby Bop, B.J.

 

The chocolate cupcake taste good!

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO VERNICE!! YI YI LOVES YOU!!! 😉

 

 

Dinner @ The Ship

It was on Christmas day. In additional to that, it was Alex’s birthday as well.

Since we were at Bukit Bintang area, we decided to have our dinner at “The Ship” – claiming it as The Best Steak in Town! (but we did not make any orders on steak^^)

 

I thought I could drop by at 4pm to make a reservation. Unfortunately the waiter told me, there wouldn’t be any reservations considered on that day. It would be on walk-in basis. Alright. Fine. We will come again by 6.30pm then.

 

As we got into the restaurant, the guests were about to fill up the entire restaurant. And to my surprise; the tables were placed so close to each other. Barely a meter away. I recalled my neighbors were about a 30cm ruler apart from me. You are not allowed to speak much louder, or else you will be sharing your story to everyone next to you. “Welcome to the story telling section”.

 

On that day, they do offered Christmas set dinner, which I felt not really worth eating. Therefore, we opted for the ala-carte.

complimentary bun & butter

 

A bowl of salad upon ordering sizzling chicken

 

Thai Seafood Tom Yam – RM10.90

I would claimed this was the best dish for the entire meal. The rest of our orders sucks.

 

Sizzling Chicken Fillet – RM22.90

Tender chicken perfectly grilled and topped with gravy, served on a sizzling hot plate with french fries and a bowl of salad

-apparently the sizzling word has removed from my order. Because it came without any sizzle at all-

 

Seafood Platter – RM34.90

Combination of grilled king prawns, fish fillet, grilled squid, fried soft crab and fried scallop served with french fries and mini salad

-No doubt the squid is quite big. Unfortunately its not well cooked lor, the inner layer still abit raw!!!-

 

Apple Juice – RM6.50

 

Orange Juice – RM6.50

 

 

Price : Affordable

Food : Would advise please do not dine during festive season. The food quality drops alot.

Service : Moderate

On His Birthday cum Christmas

Its Christmas! Its Alex birthday! Yeap. Both falls on the same day!

 

Planned the agenda earlier. Alex got me to help him book a room at Piccolo Hotel 2 weeks ahead. Its located at Bukit Bintang in between Lot 10 and Fahrenheit 88. I would say this hotel is good! In sense of location, design and price. Just walk down the street, and you will be able to find ample of food and shopping venue. You can easily return to you hotel room to get some rest. Everything was good. Unfortunately the breakfast was bad. =_=

 

Our Deluxe Room. Clean, Stylish & Bright. I like it!

 

The wash basin is placed outside the bathroom

 

 

The separated shower area and toilet

 

The celebration on that day wasn’t much I would say. Mainly were on food & shopping. Pavilion, Fahrenheit 88, Lot 10, Sg. Wang were the places we shopped! ^^

 

This 2 fella can be spotted at Bukit Bintang. You’ll gotto pay RM2 to take a photo with them.

 

I bought 3 slices of cakes from ‘Bread Talk’. Requested a candle from them. Personally brought a box of matches from home ^^

 

Happy Birthday to beloved hubby!! 😉

*wonder what wish he made*

 

my damage of the day. a pair of shoe again! (yea..AGAIN* as quoted by mom)

 

 

Yea…my Christmas present from Alex. THOMAS SABO Charm.

(which I’ve been longing for one)

Thanks alot Alex!! Merry Christmas ar….Happy Birthday ar…Thank kiu thank kiu ar….

 

p.s: Dear Ashley; You have successfully poisoned me on this. I want to thank you very much. MERRY CHRISTMAS! ^^

Mummy’s Birthday @XINJIANG COURT

Mom is celebrating her 51st birthday this year. We held the celebration a few days earlier from the actual date. It was on Sunday, where everyone will be at home.

 

Mom decided to try Klana Resort’s All-You-Can-Eat Dim Sum Buffet Lunch.(Mummy loves dim sum very much!)

*It was highly recommended by Baby Sumo.*

THANKS to her I would say.

They serves HALAL Dim Sum. So there wouldn’t be any porkie yea…

The price is RM30++/ person. (12-2.30pm). With the price you are paying; I felt that its very worthy. You can dine in a hotel, the dim sum are served upon your order (even though its buffet)- so its still warm.

 

pick your choice of dim sum from the list

 

A complimentary bowl of shark fin’s soup

Not much of shark fin & tasted abit fishy.

 

Porridge with Peanuts – very smooth & tasty

 

 

 

puffs & tarts

 

scallops

 

fruit konnyaku jelly

 

assorted mini cakes

 

Jelly & Pudding

 

fruits

 

Prawn Triangle with Salad Cream – Crispy Skin with big fresh prawns. (yummy)

 

Deep Fried Mango Seaweed Roll – Its yummy. But I hardly taste any Mango.

 

Steamed Scallop Dumpling – Huge scallop underneath

 

Steamed Prawn Dumpling – The prawns are big & fresh

 

 

Steamed Prawn Rolled with Rice Flour (Chee Cheong Fun) – The skin is very smooth & thin

 

Steamed Chicken Rolled with Rice Flour (Chee Cheong Fun)

 

Steamed Chicken Dumpling with Crab Roe

 

Steamed Chicken Feet with ‘Gui Lin’ Style – This one so so only

 

Stir Fried Raddish Cake – I like this very much. The raddish cake aren’t too hard. Not too oily & its tasty.

 

Sang Har Min(Yee Mee in Cantonese Style) – Cooked with huge fresh prawns. The noodles are well cooked and tasty.

 

Steamed Hong Kong sweet corn custard bun – the custard content too little & abit dry

 

Steamed BBQ Chicken Bun – skin too thick, content too little

 

Sis suggested to buy a cake from “The Bakers” (just 1 floor below). Too bad..there aren’t any whole cake that time (12.30pm). However they are so nice to tell my sis to please wait for 1+ hour, they will bake the cake immediately. Since we are dining just upstairs; no harm for us to wait for an hour plus. At about 1.30pm the waiter brought the cake & candles to our table. Mom got surprised!! I guess she’s feeling happy as well  ^^

All of us likes the cake very much(Black & White Chocolate Mousse). Its freshly bake you know…  hahahah…

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MUMMY!!

Mel’s birthday – Part 2

Hubby celebrated my birthday over the passed weekend.

Initially we thought of dining at “Chili’s”. However I changed my mind few days ago. Thought of trying something new instead. Since I know there are plenty of new food or restaurant which I’ve not tried before. Despite of trying something new, I do not want it to be too pricey though. I asked my friend, asked Ashley for suggestion. She suggested Chinoz. Well, since it has good reviews from some food blogger too…Therefore I told Alex, the changed of plan. Alex answered; up to u….’lei wa si…lei tai sai today’ ~  (u decide, u are the host today) :-p

the sauces

Alex’s orange juice – RM13

My Mango Fizz – RM12

complimentary toast bread

crispy potato wedges – RM9

Fish & Chip – RM28

(the fish meat is very yummy)

Grill Chicken with brown sauce – RM25

I like the fries very much though!

CHURROS – RM20 (with hazelnut chocolate dipping sauce)

I seriously miss this dessert very very much. I have no idea what’s its made of. Its like a soft dough, like soft donuts texture, warm, top with cinnamon powder & sugar. Dip into the chocolate sauce when its warm. VOILA~~~

when I looked up; I noticed this beautiful high ceiling right above me.

Mel cam-whoring….

NOTE: Nice ambiance, cozy, quiet. Food are nice. Price is above average.

Food portion size is average.

Mel’s Birthday – Part 1

Owww…..sad to know that my 28th birthday has just over.

I’m aging year by year….gosh…time flies really fast without one realizing it..

As usual, I’ll be celebrating my birthday with my family & my loved one.

This year, I spared the earlier weekend to celebrate with my family.

We decided to have dinner at a cafe, which newly opens not long ago. Received some good reviews from friend & colleague. Therefore decided to give it a try. They serves fusion food. (western & chinese).

the very 1st dish. “tom yum soup” ..

not so good…. doesn’t taste like tom yum 😦

black pepper udon – NICE

fried chicken wings

-yummy….taste of ‘nam yi’ –

pork meat balls……tasty

Spaghetti – delicious

black pepper chicken chop

chicken maryland – SOSO only!

YOO….We siblings ROCKS!!

Note: This cafe is located in Uptown Avenue, Seremban 2.

I think their western food (those chop chop) so so only. Their chinese food taste nicer….. Out total bill came up to be RM80+ (with drinks). Quite fair lor…each person average less than RM20.

After our dinner; I suggested for 2nd round – ice cream as dessert over in A&W. The place where we able to makan cheap ice creams. Unfortunately, they no longer serves various types of ice creams anymore 😦

Therefore we were restricted to few types only…..*sigh*

I ordered the ‘chocolate ice cream’

with mom, niece, sis & bro

Hubby & I

After all the makan & food, we return home. My mom surprised me with a cheese cake which she made it the day before. Wahhh….I’m so happy & touched.Thank you mummy…thank you everyone!!  😉
