An Aftermath...

I M SO LAZY TODAY! Why? sigh.. back to work lo.. after taking 2 days off and having 7 days of rest, I m just too lazy to start work. Still in Chinese New Year mood, office is also quiet, thank goodness. No urgency, no contractors lurking around the corriders, no chasing of payments... at least...serene, can relax a bit especially after some late nights before.

Yesterday was an upturn in my life, I realise that I will miss my kids if they go off for their further studies when they reach 18. My son who was supposedly leaving home for KL to further his studies took a roundabout turn. An incident made him change his mind and he now realises home is still the best but then, of course, soon or later, he has to leave the "nest" and to face the world in a matter of weeks from now. But for the time now, he and I will continue to appreciate each other's presence in the house, never to quarrel, never to squabble ... right Andy? (*winks*)


  1. Mee too. Today got start to work. But still in holiday mood.

  2. yeah.. still in holiday mood too.. just heard this coming tuesday another public holiday for perakians... hehe..

  3. sudah besar, sudah berkokok lor....hehehehe.

  4. hi Claire, i'm here for a visit.. i've been lazy to blog lately too. and i've made pittance lately on ping pong piang lately...

  5. Me too. Today got back to work and I was swarmed with lots of tasks and a cold engine in me. I was 'woken' up only when boss talk to me on project updates where I was still blur blur... It's really a roller coaster between two extremes, total relaxation and work stress.
    OK la..they have to go to pursue their careers and life...

  6. oh yes, going back to work isn't always easy. although, I do like having things "normal" again.
    Have a great weekend!

  7. hehehe....yapp...more bonding of mommy and son LOL

  8. wow, that is quite a turnaround. but good for you and him - more appreciation now. and this will in a way help prepare you in the future :) (think most mummies and some dads miss their children lots too) :)

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


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?
Our fir…

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…
