Carelessness And Absent Minded On CHIJ Day 2015

COULD IT BE DUE TO THE EXCITMENT?

CHIJ year '77 was planned months before and we were looking forward to the Big Day! Two of my classmates came from outstation to slumber in my house and obviously, being ladies, we wanted to look our Best, right? That was my weakness... in order to look good, my mind was being "strayed."

Hours before the Big Night, my friend and I went to the hair saloon named Carbello.  Being me, I took my iPad along to while away the time while enjoying the soft massage on the hair on shoulders.  Everything went on fine, our hair was beautifully done, we paid the bill and went home happily.

Fast forward.... when party was over, the first thing I reached home was to log in to my iPad to check my Facebook... and to my horror, I couldn't find it anywhere in the house nor in my car.  Oh my goodness!!  Where has it gone to?  Don't tell me I left it in the hair saloon?  *Prayers prayed*

I couldn't sleep well throughout the night, I even dreamt that I found my iPad on my sofa... too bad it was just a dream.  The first thing I woke up was to go to the saloon straight but it opened only at 10am.  After my breakie, I quickly drove to the saloon... before entering, another *silent prayer*...

The first word upon entering, one lady looked up at me and said.. "Looking for iPad?"  With a smile on her face and another few workers, she handed me back my "treasure!"  Phewwwww... What a Big Relief... !  *Give Thanks!*

Yes, many Thanks to my God for answering my prayers and to the staff of Carbello for safe-keeping my sentimental iPad for one night!  I certainly will visit you all from now on!

Tonight I should be able to sleep.... hahahaaa.... and since this is a long post, I won't be able to post up the CHIJ photos... instead ... here is something I really "treasure" too....

  7. Haih, I haven't seen most of my classmates since... I don't know. I think we had a reunion a couple years after we left school, and that's about it. I think if I am to bump into some classmates accidentally now, I would not recognize most of them! >.<

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

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

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
