Mama, You Raised Us Up...

Just a moment ago, my sister reminded me to do something for her ....then on second thoughts, she said, "Oh, you are not the right person to do that... you always forget things... (Sigh)... Only Mother can remind me... She has best memory among us all........ "   

Mother's Happiest Moments....
Our Mama...
Words cannot express how much we miss You from now on....
The only consolation we have...
That we will see you again some day....
Meanwhile ...
Each breaking day will be filled with sweet memories...
Of you by our side.....

Drove down to Sg Buloh around 10am on a sunny Sunday morning and reached there around lunch time.  Had our lunch at the same old regular shop at the industrial area called Family Restaurant. Indeed it is always a time of family bonding in this shop....
Here we are.... at the Sg Buloh Industrial Area.....
A picture to remember while waiting for our food....
Big bowl of Sarawak Kolo Mee.... 
Love the taste...  and the toppings full to the brim... RM7
Popiah is also not bad... very crunchy fillings too!
Ordered some Roasted Duck.....
To go with the noodles...!

Gave me the chance to try something different this time for once!

Creamy Desserts In Ipoh Town

My sisters and I went to the town market to do some shopping and it was very fruitful indeed. Each of us bought something for ourselves, good bargains and all.... we fastpaced back to the car because it was such a hot day!  We were practically sweating and yearning for something cooling-licious when we stumbled upon this stall which partially hidden....

It was situated in a small corner along Anderson Road, just opposite Kamdar and a popular coffeeshop called Lok Wui Kei.... There were a few tables along the five foot way and we sat at one with a standing fan just at the corner...
We made our orders and quickly I took a few pictures....
 Nice and friendly man.....
I just gave him the numbers... I thought he would have memorized them by now...
I ordered #9 ... soya bean with gula melaka....
But this came instead....
Then I told him about the blunder.. and quickly he took it back... 
And gave us a special one indeed.... 
He told us to try this... "Very Nice"..... 
He added in some cendol and soya bean as well...
And it was so nice especially with the thick brown syrup in it...  
Then I ordered two bowls of Creamy Cendol....
So refreshing and fragrant too!
  We didn't have any more space for the Ice Kacang...
But we will certainly come back to try next time!
For the 2 bowls of cendol, one glass of soya bean and the special one above, 
the bill only came to RM9!!!
hahahaaaa...
The BIG difference between sitting in cool air con and sidewalks!!

Kenny Rogers Lookalike Took Away My Wisdom

My wisdom tooth has been giving me problem for many months. But I was been procrastinating till the tooth said, "Help, help... I cannot crush any more food for you!"   Yes, whenever I eat, I have to adjust the amount of food to be crushed this side and on the other good side.   That was tedious work, right?  Why don't I end the suffering since I love to EAT?

And leaving no choice, I carried my heavy legs to visit the dentist, a day after Deepavali.  I heard there are three dental clinics along the same row... the first one, Dr C... then next two doors away, another Dr C... then another two shops away... Dr. O....  Who shall I choose?  hahahaha... I didn't manage to choose ANY cos the two Dr. C has not opened their clinics yet! 
And so... here I am.... in Dr. O's clinic... first timer...
When I saw him.... first impression.....hmmm...... Very rugged man!
Beard-dy... reminded me of Kenny Rogers...
haahahaha...
Ok... serious mode... after some minutes of consultation and advice, I was given an injection....
(I felt the needle three times onto my gum actually)
OUCH!! OUCH!!!!
Then I was told to wait...
While waiting, I started to take pictures .... 
Starting with my legs............
Should I cross them this way?
....... Or this way.......
Clean basin with water overflowing........
Finally I sat this way...
That was my last picture....
The Doctor came in and within seconds, my wisdom was gone for good!
Phewwwww.... what a Big Relief!
Thank you, Dr. Rugged... 
Hope I don't have to see you again... 
But...  IF I have to, I will come back to you..
Cos you look like Kenny Rogers!
hahahahaa...

8 Course Meal At Super HLT Restaurant, Ipoh

My family had a Thanksgiving celebration last weekend. We went to Super HLT Restaurant for our lunch this time... and upon arrival, there was also an event going on, a Kindies' Graduation function was going on. Wow.. nowadays, kindergartens also hold functions in restaurants! Enjoy the kids' performance while savouring the food....
Coming back to our own "family function", there were seventeen of us and we occupied two tables... It was a eight cost lunch and the food was kind of special in its own way.... All of us enjoyed the meal tremendously....
First dish.... everything on this plate "disappeared" in no time...
No, it is not shark fins but fish maws with crab meat...
Steamed Sea Bass....
This one needs no introduction.... I love the white dumplings with sauce...
I took only one of this....
 Prefer this dish more than the above...
A very scrumptious dish indeed...
Fried rice for the ending....
Pancakes and steamed dumplings as desserts....
And ended with melon pudding....
This 8+1 course meal cost around RM500 per table...
Supposed to be around RM888... that was what was written in the menu...
Big Thank You to my dear one for footing the bill...
