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.

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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
