My Memorable Toasts And Cheers!

There are many occasions where we drink to good health and happiness.  Every year I make it a point to get a few nice bottles of wine to keep in the house and come every occasion where the family gathers, I would bring out a bottle to commemorate the special event.  We love the cheers as we click our glasses and wishing everyone something good!

I remember a few special functions where families gather around the table for a reunion gathering.  This does not happen often because my siblings are living apart from one another.  We have our own families now that we are getting older and our kids are grown.  But we make it a point to have a family reunion at least once a year to gather for a nice wonderful dinner together.
This is one happy reunion that I had in Sacramento.  My mother prepared a very scrumptious dinner and invited a few close friends to come over for the gathering.  Just look the the table full of food, glorious food and our happy cheers to one another!
Let's drink to good health and peace on earth! 
When I was in Las Vegas, I tried my first cocktail offered by my brother-in-law, it is called Mathai.  He told me that I would love to drink this once I have tried it!  It is a fruity cocktail with a dash of rum, vodka, tequila etc etc.  Well, that was what I was told and true enough, I love it!
We ordered three glasses and coming to think of it now, I wish I could have a glass by my side! 
We ordered a few pieces of honey lemon chicken to go with the cocktail...
Well, that was my kind of celebration I have yearly...
Now that my kids have grown, they are welcomed to drink a bit here and there...
Anything taken moderately is good for our bodies, right?
 Cheers, everyone!  
Christmas is around the corner....
Let us wish one another Good Health and Happiness!

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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
