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!!

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

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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
