Finger Eating Good

My colleagues held a small "Raya makan" in the office to mark the nearly ending Syawal... each of them prepared some food and brought them to the office.

Very nice gesture of them to treat us to these homecooked malay delicacies.... too bad I did not bring my camera to snap all the food displayed..

one of my colleagues laying out the food on the long table...
facing the camera are the main meals...

followed by some salads and sweeties...

love this fruit salad..
I think I "walloped"a lot of this.. hahaha...

my blue-eyed boy.... hahahaa...

I think the food is not enough, hor...
or perhaps this is FEG? Finger Eating Good?


  1. Gosh! His one arm is twice the size of yours... You're so thin!

  2. That's what I always tell my Chinese colleagues, that the Malays are very generous people especially during the festive season. They are willing to treat you all the good food without asking for anything in return. Chinese people... haha... a bit stingy la. As the saying goes:
    Mou cheok sou, mou tuck king...

  3. Great bonding moment with colleagues :)

  4. stp: not so thin lar!!1 i see the picture again.. almost same ma... hahaha...

    pam: u r very right.. what can i say? :p

    gratitude: yes... office is like our second home...

  6. kathy: 2nd home.. :)

    henry: hahaha.. what do you think?

  7. they are so nice to prepare the dishes and food and brought them over to office, how thoughtful and generous.. my family also will be invited to dad's excolleague's home for raya treat every year. not only eat there, but we are also asked to da pao balik ^^

  8. angelin: yes..

    yingying: so nice.. can tar pau also.. hahaa..

  9. The food looks great!
    What interests me is the photo of your co-worker wearing a scarf on her head, but you are not. Is she Muslim?

  10. It all looks so good, the pink decorated cookies are very pretty, I would have had to stick a few in my large purse to smuggle home!!

  11. wow, lots of food!! nice food, haha!! you did not contribute any?? :D

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

First Day In The Royal Caribbean Cruise To Mexico

ROW ROW ROW YOUR BOAT.... gently down the sea....  Royal Caribbean, it is my second time following this giant vessel, the first time was from Singapore to Phuket, that was a very nice cruise.  So when my son mentioned that he found a good deal online, this time to Mexico, I agreed without hesitation.  Let's Go! A three nights stay with food and lodging only cost around $250 per person with at least one senior in per room.  Meals were either buffet style or fine dining, we can choose and cafes were opened 24 hours for us to rest and relax.  How not to resist... LOL...  And so here we are... just one week after landing in US, I was on the sea....  Looks small from afar...  It was a giant vessel with at least 14 floors.... On the way to embarking after Custom Clearance...  Our room for the next three nights....  Small and cosy.... And adjoining to my son's family room through a door...  The one with balcony cost a bit more...  A short briefing about safety after we checked in....
