New Shoes For Me, New Bags For You

Nowadays I never do much shopping except for groceries... shopping in this sense means buying something "vain" for myself... hahahaa... I was thinking that since I am going to retire in another six months time, I do not need working clothes anymore.  My cupboard is full of them and it is such a waste to buy some more and hang them there.  If I am not careful, the metal bar in the cupboard will go "sengat" and fall due to overloading...
 
 I was sitting here waiting for my friend who was trying some sports shoes....
Nothing here interest me actually.....
But when it comes to shoes, I just couldn't resist buying one pair...
(Well, at least my shoe cupboard still has space!)

Since I am on shopping subject, here are two new bags given by my colleague...
 



She bought these two bags from Beijing...
New ones ... never been used before...
But she gave them to me when she found out that they are made from "pig skin"
It is such a waste if I just chuck them away in my store room...
If anyone like these, please let me know...

  5. Hello darling! I'm still awake.. Oh yeah I know wat u mean.. Too many clothes hanging there can make that metal bar drop anytime.. My wardrobe is not built in, so it can get kinda shaky too sometimes.. Those nice expensive bags could make a nice Christmas exchange gift if you do not have anyone to give to..

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

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

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
