Photography With Beautiful Backdrops

We had a great family gathering few days ago. It was a great and wonderful gathering of many family members, some of them we have not seen for many years. Some returned from other states and some have travelled all the way from overseas. They travelled back to our hometown to celebrate the 80th birthday dinner party of my grand uncle.

This dinner party was first initiated a year ago by my grand uncle’s youngest daughter who stays with him and she contacted all her siblings through their Whatsapp family group. From then on, everyone contributed ideas and suggestions to their youngest sister, the organizer. Then everyone made plans to take leave to return to their family home. They didn’t want to hold the dinner party in a restaurant because inter-mingling and time will be restricted. They made plans to hold it in their own garden which is big enough to accommodate all the family members plus some very close friends of their family.


On the day of the birthday party, my grand uncle and aunt were beaming with joy. There were happy greetings and hugging when the guests arrived. Family backdrops for party photography were put up in advance at different parts of their garden. I was told that one of the siblings bought these backdrops online and had them sent to his family home well ahead of the big day.


Everyone was happy to see one another and knowing that it was not often we get to do so. Everyone took the opportunity to have their photos taken together.  In fact, we made sure we had all the backdrop party photography pictures in the background of our photos. It was a beautiful celebration for the birthday boy and also for all who attended. We will treasure the sweet memories of this great event for many years to come.

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
