Lovely Gifts With Sweet Memories

GOING BACK TO MY "EX-OFFICE" YESTERDAY BRINGS BACK SWEET OLD MEMORIES!

When I stepped in and sat on my old place, it felt like "Good" so "at-home" that for some seconds, I forgot I had retired because when the phone rang at my table, I automatically took it up and said "Hello!"  Oh my goodness!!  I was not supposed to do that!  And the best thing is... I didn't even realize my blunder till my colleague who sat beside me laughed out loud.  Then only I realize my mistake and still in a shock mode, I quickly hung up the call.  Oh dear, I hope the other side would not "swear" and "curse"... That proves how BLUR I am when I am in the midst of doing something!!

It has been more than two months since I stopped working..... I might not remember much about my work but I certainly do remember what others have given me before I punched out for the last time...
Some of the lovely gifts from my colleagues... I will always remember their kind thoughts!
 Love the foldable mattress..... soft and nice..
It is now utilized in Johor... 
I received this fleece blanket from my boss personally....
I will also take it to Johor.... it is "colder" there.. .
hahahaaa..
Induction cooker... 
I planned to take this to Johor too the other time...
But last minute, I forgot to put it into the car....
Love my Red Handbag too...
On the last day I received this handheld Massager!
Given by my colleague who wants to remain anonymous... 
hahahaaa... 
Really touched by his gesture....
He knows I am always complaining of shoulder pain and needs massaging every now and then...
So he told me that the best present he could think of is this electronic one...
I do not have to rely on anyone else after having this....

Looking at the gifts above, I really appreciate their kind thoughts and concerns.... If I could turn back the clock, I think I would like to retire the second time! hahahaa... crazy!

Talking about buying gifts, there is one website now which provides your one stop shopping destination, shopping is made very easy with iprice!  What do we have to do?  Just log in to their shopping categories and from there, we can also check out their offer coupons.  With iprice, they aggregates all the products from the most trusted e-commerce shops in Asia and globally compile them onto one platform. They are always looking for the latest coupons, deals and voucher codes in Malaysia in order that we may save big on every purchase.
Now I am thinking of buying some baby presents... my two ex-colleague has just given birth and I need to get some cute baby stuff for both of them.  Well, I am going to shop online here, no hassle and I can take my own sweet time to browse over them!

  4. Lovely gifts! What wonderful colleagues you have! When I retired, mine pooled together and bought me one thick gold chain. Would probably be worth a lot more now.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

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

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
