Third Round Of Pre-Retirement Gathering

This afternoon Elin and I were treated to a scrumptious lunch in Loon Wah Restaurant in Pasir Puteh. Both of us had never been there so anything new is interesting!   But this post will not be about the food and more food... I feel that it would be more meaningful to put in more humans than food cos this is all about us... colleagues and soon to be ex-colleagues...

I would like to remember this occasion and my lovely gang...
My beautiful colleagues...
Regardless of age... we still share the same interest here... 
Don't forget me...! 
  Different standing positions...
Love these pictures... 
My friend since 1980ssssss.... 
 
Both of us are retiring same month....
I think I gonna shed a tear.....
After this month... 
we will not have each other to go out daily anymore...
No intercom chats during office time....
No more breakies and lunchies daily....
No more going home together too...
Separation comes after retirement....
Our days will be changed from next month on...
Thank you for the Happy Years we had...
Happy Retirement to Both of Us!
Stay Cheerful Friend!!

  2. Once retired, a new chapter of your life starts. You will be doing new things and meeting new friends. But remember your old friends will be here waiting for you. Do stay connected.

  13. Elin also retiring? I know three ladies, ex-colleagues, who would meet every morning to go for breakfast and sit and chat and two groups of teachers who would meet, one once a week and the other once a month to do the same, big groups. Very nice way to keep in touch and stay active. You and Elin can do the same...and get some friends whoi have retired to join you two as well. The joy and fun would not have to end here.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
