Mum's 80th birthday

My eldest brother wished to organised a birthday celebration for our mum. He planned everything in detailed.

He chose the Imperial Restaurant in Subang and ordered a special cake for the celebration.
It's a beautiful cake for the special occasion.

He even bought special red packets meant to be given together with the door gift. 
A piece of RM5 note is put inside each packet.

The door gift consists of a fork,a spoon and a pair of chopsticks which is considered auspicious.

Mum wore her new blouse specially tailored for her big day.

Only closed relatives were invited. A total of 63 guests attended the event. Mum's birthday fell on the tenth day of the tenth month of the Chinese calendar which coincidentally fell on a Saturday.

My eldest sister flew from JB. My third sister took a bus from Singapore. My youngest sister flew from Penang. My second brother and his family flew from Penang too. My eldest, third and youngest brothers are from KL. My hubby drove my mum and I from Ipoh. My kids are from KL.

Mum's eldest brother's whole family drove from Seremban whereas her youngest brother's whole family are from KL. 

Mum's godson with his wife came too from KL.

Mum's sister from Taiping couldn't make it as she's confined to a wheel chair. But her son's family attended.

My boy didn't join us as he's the stage master for an orchestra on that night. My eldest girl didn't join too as she's on a church trip oversea.

All in all, it was a very happy and joyous occasion for all of us especially mum.

Wishing mum a very happy and healthy birthday!
Many happy returns of the day!

Deepavali dinner

As many of my customer friends are Indians, I decided to give them a treat. It was held at the Chinese restaurant in the YMCA building.

I booked two tables for the 19 of us. Before we started the dinner, I had to give the prize to the winner of the Saree challenge at Chang Jiang. 

She was clad in saree but I was clad in an innovated one.

From 7pm onwards, one by one started to take their seat at the restaurant. Then came the pre-ordered dishes. We had rice and there was a bowl of soup too.

Most of them had Chinese tea but some of us had red wine which I brought along.

Simple yet appetizing ones.
And it's reasonable too.

After the dinner, we gathered at the living hall for a photography session. We took quite a number of shots.
A group photo for the album.

They thanked me for the treat but I thanked them for their presence!

Happy Deepavali!

Wearing Saree

I had organised a saree contest at Chang Jiang but not many people seemed keen. Once a Chinese friend told me that she wanted to take part and I was looking forward to it. 

She was waiting for a green light from our Indian friend. Unfortunately, our friend was too busy preparing for her son's wedding. Her time was really occupied. 

I have an Indian friend who seemed interested to wear saree with me. Again, we couldn't get a proper time to do it. Both of us had time constraint. Thus, we forwent it.

Two days ago, a regular customer came to Chang Jiang with her saree. She looked so pretty. This was the first time I had seen her in saree. Casually, I asked if I could wear her saree. Without hesitation, she welcomed me to go over to her place that very night after my work.

I was so pleased and I told her about the saree contest in Chang Jiang. She was excited. 

So, I went to her place and wore her saree.

I had submitted this picture at Chang Jiang.

Guess she's surely the only winner.
