A Gift To Yours Truly

I love sitting at home if I am in Ipoh.  Of course I do go out for food and catching up with my friends on and off, but most times, I rather stay home to rest and relax.  My friends say I am like an "octopus" with endless legs, always seem to be traveling here and there but I am not really so.  If I am not in Ipoh, I am either at the north or south of Malaysia because those are the places where my kids are stationed at the moment.  They used to tease me, "Mom, in Malaysia, you have covered north, west and south already!"  Yes, only the east part of Malaysia I have not drive over yet, I mean as yet...

That is why I mentioned I love to sit at home when I am back in Ipoh.  Shopping is out of the question, no more cravings for new clothes or anything extravagant on my body.  No more unnecessities in the shopping malls if I could help it.  I spend my money on Food and my Travels, I always tell my friends.  When it comes to real shopping such as on birthday gifts, celebrations, anniversaries, there is a solution to getting gifts without the hassle of going out to walk endless stores to get what I want.  Recently I found one online store which offer what I want to get for myself, my family and friends.  In fact I have claimed one free mug from them during a promotion some time ago and since then, I am now thinking of getting a couple more gifts for my love ones and friends.  Shhhhhh... better not let them know otherwise it will not be a surprise anymore.  hahahahaa.... 

I always wanted to have my own customized mug for myself.  Before this, I have purchased a whole set of customized mugs for my brother's family, five of them in total.  Each time I go and visit them, the five beautiful mugs with their pictures on them could be seen displayed in the house.  They told me that they are "too good" to be used so the mugs were being decorated instead.  hahhaaha...  This time I got one for myself at www.printcious.com.

Besides mugs, there is a wide selection of gifts to get for yourself or your love ones.  This is something more personalized and not everyone can get the same as what you do.  You can customize your own photos, be it scenery, wordings or any love dovey messages, each gift you order will be specially done for you.
Part of the categories in the website... 

Initially I did not know how to upload my picture to the mug... and I was like "stuck" halfway.  But no worries, there is an "ever-ready" customer service chatbox just at the right hand corner of their website.  The customer service was so helpful, she guided me through step by step, from A to Z, patiently with this auntie (yours truly) here.  Finally I got everything done up smoothly and within a few days, I received this special package...
 Carefully wrapped up with bubble wrap inside as well... 
 Giving with Art is giving with Heart... 
That is a very nice quote... Yes, even to myself! 
hahahahaa...
A gift to myself... 
Well, that's me with my precious mug!

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...  And the most delicious part is none other…

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 …

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 street...  A …
