Handy Andy On The Sew

Andy brought back his "stinky" and tattered comforter from Penang... but now it is not "stinky" nor tattered anymore.. he dumped it inside the washing machine, put lots of "TOP" powder and softener and let it washed for more than 30 minutes, from stinky to nice smelling fresh aroma, just like new if not for one side which is badly tattered...

I told him to get a new one but he quickly said, "NO, NO... This comforter is the best!" Yes, his comforter has been his bedtime companion for more than five years already... ever faithful.. the older it gets, the more comfortable it becomes!  hahahaa....

Well... tattered and torn at the sides... I told him to get the needle ready with the thread so that I could have it sewn... (I never had a sewing machine before)  but Andy told me that he would like to try hand-sewing it himself... pheww.... how wonder-ful to hear that!  
so while he is at work, mum here gets busy with my iPhone... 
for me, threading the needle is a chore...
but not for him, he can easily do it...
I taught him the big running stiches..
so that work will be finished fast....
but he didn't listen to me.... 
to my surprise, his stitches were small and neat....
While I meddled with my pc, he did his sewing quietly...
Sew.... and sew.... and sew.......
till it was all done!!
GOOD JOB, SON!!
and now.... "Can you do that for mama's blanket too???"
 
After all the sewing had been done,I thought he wouldn't want to see another needle again..
Instead.... he remarked...
"Mom, I think I went into the wrong choice...
I should have taken up sewing instead of engineering....."
*HUH?*

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
