A Gift To Yours Truly

I love sitting at home if I am in Ipoh.  Of course I do go out for food and catching up with my friends on and off, but most times, I rather stay home to rest and relax.  My friends say I am like an "octopus" with endless legs, always seem to be traveling here and there but I am not really so.  If I am not in Ipoh, I am either at the north or south of Malaysia because those are the places where my kids are stationed at the moment.  They used to tease me, "Mom, in Malaysia, you have covered north, west and south already!"  Yes, only the east part of Malaysia I have not drive over yet, I mean as yet...

That is why I mentioned I love to sit at home when I am back in Ipoh.  Shopping is out of the question, no more cravings for new clothes or anything extravagant on my body.  No more unnecessities in the shopping malls if I could help it.  I spend my money on Food and my Travels, I always tell my friends.  When it comes to real shopping such as on birthday gifts, celebrations, anniversaries, there is a solution to getting gifts without the hassle of going out to walk endless stores to get what I want.  Recently I found one online store which offer what I want to get for myself, my family and friends.  In fact I have claimed one free mug from them during a promotion some time ago and since then, I am now thinking of getting a couple more gifts for my love ones and friends.  Shhhhhh... better not let them know otherwise it will not be a surprise anymore.  hahahahaa.... 

I always wanted to have my own customized mug for myself.  Before this, I have purchased a whole set of customized mugs for my brother's family, five of them in total.  Each time I go and visit them, the five beautiful mugs with their pictures on them could be seen displayed in the house.  They told me that they are "too good" to be used so the mugs were being decorated instead.  hahhaaha...  This time I got one for myself at www.printcious.com.

Besides mugs, there is a wide selection of gifts to get for yourself or your love ones.  This is something more personalized and not everyone can get the same as what you do.  You can customize your own photos, be it scenery, wordings or any love dovey messages, each gift you order will be specially done for you.
Part of the categories in the website... 

Initially I did not know how to upload my picture to the mug... and I was like "stuck" halfway.  But no worries, there is an "ever-ready" customer service chatbox just at the right hand corner of their website.  The customer service was so helpful, she guided me through step by step, from A to Z, patiently with this auntie (yours truly) here.  Finally I got everything done up smoothly and within a few days, I received this special package...
 Carefully wrapped up with bubble wrap inside as well... 
 Giving with Art is giving with Heart... 
That is a very nice quote... Yes, even to myself! 
hahahahaa...
A gift to myself... 
Well, that's me with my precious mug!

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
