Andy's Birthday And The Golden Key!

Took two days off to drive up north to celebrate Andy's birthday.... didn't really know what to buy for him... he seems to have everything that I can afford... hahahaa...

When I asked him what he wanted for his birthday, he jokingly told me that I would never afford to buy for him.... ie. a Condo!! hahahaa... Yeah, right... I could never afford that, not at my age now... my salary is just enough to tide us by .....

Since he jokingly told me what he wanted, I also must give him something back in humour.... I must not disappoint him, right?  hahahaha....
before we went out for our dinner, I gave him a surprise present..
He said.. "Mom... so formal???" 
Then I told him to open the fridge...
Wanted to surprise him with a Baskin Robbins cake..
Well, to my own surprise.....
the Baskin Robbin cake has melted!!!!
OH NO!!  The hotel fridge is so lousy....
Not cold enough!!
Then to our dismay, the candles and the knife were missing!
Quickly we sang him a birthday song...
And made him "cut" the ice cream cum cake...
with A Spoon!
 and we "walloped" the mini ice cream cake before it really melts!!
hahahah...What blunder!!


I gave him a Golden Egg...Key!
(made from golden paper)
"Andy, though I cannot get you the real Condo,
Let me give you a Golden Condo Key now...
Keep this Mock Golden Key first.. you'll never know...
One day, this Golden Key might turn into a REAL One!!"


  1. This all looks just perfect for him!!! And looks like you ate the cake before it was completely ruined, it must have been just as good. They need to be kept in the freezer, maybe you only had a refrigerator in the hotel.

  2. Oh dear! But it's the thought that counts!!! Wah!!! Aaron went all the way too...such a sweet brother. Happy Birthday, Andy! A golden key? He's 21 only kah? young.

  3. Spot on with this write-up, I really believe that this
    web site needs a great deal more attention. I'll probably be back again to read through more, thanks for the information!
    Stop by my weblog ;

  4. Happy Birthday to Andy.. he got the golden key that means he should be the one who buys mommy a condo instead of the other way round~~ :D

  5. Wenn: thanks on behalf..

    ginny: i guess so.. the mini fridge is not so effective.. haha..

    stp: yeah.. we reunion in penang.. hahaha... convenient spot... no, he is above 21.. hahahaa.

    sk: i will certainly let him read this!!

  6. Happy Birthday, Andy. Never know, the golden key may turn into reality.

  7. Happy Birthday Andy!!!! Your mom prefers the ice cream cake to my butter cake Lol! I am dure you had a wonderful cake. You condi will come true;) she adi given you the key ;)

  8. HAHAH omg the cake melted! but can see that you all had fun though :D

  9. how sweet!
    happy birthday andy
    best of luck
    and may his condo be sooner haha

  10. Thanks mum for the birthday cake and dinner. Hehe. There is no need for a real condo. A real home is where we get together as a family. That's what matters. =)

  11. melted cake but still can eat la. time ask them to put in the hotel freezer for you.

    Happy Birthday to ANdy :)

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
