Graduation At Academy Of Art University, San Francisco

WITH THIS PICTURE, I THEE NOT WED...
no, I did not get married as some of you have commented...
LOL...


IT WAS INDEED A VERY MEMORABLE DAY AND EVENT FOR ME AND MY FAMILY MEMBERS on that special Thursday when we gathered together to celebrate my niece's graduation at the Civic Center in San Francisco.  I still remember the day in August 2012 when we flew over to SF to register her at the Arts Academy.  Nearly five years have passed and now we are here again to celebrate this special event with her.... I can feel the pride beaming on the graduates' faces, their families and friends who came to witness and cheers for their love ones as they walked along the aisle and onto the stage to receive their honour....

The convocation started at 3pm sharp and ended around 5pm... During these moments, we shared the parents' joy and happiness and we really treasure such bonding together... As for the aftermath, we had a ravishing dinner at a Korean BBQ restaurant somewhere, I could not recall the name, all I know is that reservation was made days earlier and we had to turn up at 6.15pm... :)  After our grilling and BBQ dinner, we left San Francisco and reached Sacramento around 11pm... and a blissful sleep came almost immediately when all was cleansed and done...
Parked our car nearby and walked to the Civic Autditorium... 
Nice blue skies on this beautiful day....
Inside the Auditorium...
We were seated upstairs...
Here we are!!
Started with a some introduction and speeches....
And the proud moments came hereafter...
And the Aftermath...
The celebration....
And the Happy Poses...
Before and After...
Well done, Niece....
Thankful to be here together as one family....
And a Grilling Time soon after....
All The Best to your Future Undertakings and God Bless!!

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

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
