Gold Note Of Hope

TWO DAYS AFTER VALENTINE... we were window shopping at AEON Falim when we saw a crowd in one of the goldsmith shops in the mall.  No, there was no robbery, we were surprised that the shop was filled with people inside on this special evening.  On normal days, it is a common sight that the staff are looking out for customers or ushering them to come into their shop, but on this particular evening, all the staff were busy and had their hands full with the customers instead.  Out of curiosity, we approached the shop too... wondering if there were some free gift or what.... LOL...

We walked one round in the shop, no one was free to entertain us.. LOL.. "Ok, we come back later, I told my friends" and went for our groceries.  An hour later, we passed by the shop again, Poh Kong is the name and this time there was one lady staff who was finally available.  She told us that it is a normal sight during Chinese New Year that the chinese like to purchase gold, it signifies "prosperity" and that means "Ong" in cantonese.  No wonder... and another reason is that there is this Golden Note which is made of 0.1gm of pure gold, limited edition of our present reigning Prime Minister with his signature on it.  This Gold Note Of Hope is a token of appreciation to our PM's battle for reigniting Malaysia's hope, so it says in their website. 

The Golden Note of Hope cost RM160, out of which part of the proceeds will go to the Tabung Harapan .
At Poh Kong while stocks last... 
There is also a certificate for each Golden Note... 

It comes with a nice red box.... 
A perfect gift to give... 
And a nice souvenir to keep for life...

  1. Hmmm...the way things are going, yet to see any light at the end of tunnel. But RM160 only is cheap, not solid gold, I guess. Gold is so so expensive these days. Can't even afford a simple ring.

  2. That would be a good keepsake to invest. Someday it becomes a collector's item with appreciated value.

  3. Did you buy one? I bought one to give to a friend's niece who is a fan of the PM now as her birthday present.

  4. Youngsters nowadays prefer silver than gold, but gold is more valuable.

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... 

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
