Say It With Fresh Flowers!

I am in a "flowery mode'" tonight, yes, I am going to talk about flowers and something related to it.  In my ten years of marriage, I have only received flowers twice from my husband.  The first bouquet of flowers from him is during our wedding day.... and the second time I received another bouquet was the time after I delivered our first baby son in the hospital.  Yes, these are the only two times I received flowers throughout our ten years of marriage!  :)

Ever since his demise which was more than 16 years ago, I lost count of how many bouquets of flowers I have received.  LOL... Yes, I am not kidding, it is quite humorous actually.  Oh,  do not misunderstand, the flowers I received do not imply that I have a special lover or a number of boyfriends.  Flowers can be expressed and given as a gift by anyone, be it our own family members, our children, our best friends, colleagues... anyone, not necessary a special boyfriend or lover.

Do you agree when I say not all of us can express ourselves with words? Many of us cannot express our feelings face-to-face, right? So what other better solution than revealing our emotions with flowers? Yes, fresh flowers is a lovely choice to give to our love ones..  That is why the phrase, ‘say it with flowers’ is apt for one reason,  they help to express someone’s love for another person in such a way that whoever’s receiving them is usually overcome with joy.  
 
Special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, engagements, valentine's, baby showers', Mother's day etc, all these moments are an opportune time for us to express love and celebration with one another.  

Some of the bouquets I received...
Bouquet made of dark chocolates for my birthday!
 I love this red roses, special ordered online by my friend from Singapore... 
Indeed a very memorable occasion...
Mother's Day!


I received not one but two bouquets!
How blessed I am......


Flowers are for all occasions, right?

There is no special gender to receive flowers, 
They can be given to men or ladies alike...
Mother's Day is coming in another month or so...
I wouldn't mind receiving another bouquet like the above...
Or perhaps I could send one to my own MOM!
She loves fresh flowers too!!

The other day I was joking with my female colleagues saying next year maybe I should buy my own bouquet of flowers and send it back to myself to the office without the sender's name *cheeky*

  12. I think my sister has sent me more flowers than my husband, honestly. Surprise flowers are the best. She sent me some one time after a hard week, and they came as a complete surprise that made me cry. I think that those are the most meaningful- the ones that aren't sent because of an occasion or because it's the "thing" to do- but flowers sent just because someone is thinking about you. Of course, a chocolate bouquet could be sent any time and I'd be ok with that! :)

    1. Yes, I agree with you, it is not necessary to wait for a special day to deliver flowers.. they can more or less brighten up the day... :)

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 …
