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!!

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 …
