At ChangJiang, I gave away raya packets to my Muslim customers. They were rather sporting as they allowed me to take their pictures and posted at Changjiang facebook. This family is our regular customer and we alway talk to them. I was asking them what they were going to prepare for Hari Raya. They told me that they were going to have lemang and rendang. Jokingly I told them not to forget me as I love to eat lemang and rendang. Sure enough, they came on the first day of raya in the evening. They gave me lemang and rendang! I was so happy for their kindness. I thanked them profusely.. This lady customer who is also my neighbor came to me when I reached home in the evening yesterday. She told me she was too occupied to bring me some laksa. She insisted that I should go over to her place right away. So I quickly had my bath and walked over to her place. She was so happy. I was served laksa which is my favorite but I just had a small helping as I needed to rush back t

Join in the fun and you might be the lucky three! I even gave Raya packets to some of my customers at Chang Jiang.

Vegetarian Potluck

We decided to have a potluck recently as it coincided with the public holiday. I was thinking of having it at my place again. The fruit party during Wesak day holiday was held at my place.  Show you what I had during the gathering. But I had second helping though.. Both of them were kind enough to offer their place. So saved me the trouble to upkeep my place. All in all, we went to the host's place with our contribution. So much to eat and it ended well too. My friend gave me some of her vegetable & fruit salad. The moment I reached home, I finished it up! So yummy! Might have another potluck but not vegetarian again.

Trick Art Museum

The Trick Art Museum in Jeju Island is awesome. So much better than the one in Penang. When I was in Penang, my eldest girl was the photographer. In Jeju island, my second girl was willing to do the photographing. Thank God..otherwise I wouldn't get to experience the fun of posing with the 3D pictures.  let's get in.. feeding the giraffe.. why so sad?? come..let me sayang..   I had posed with many of  the pictures. You can view all of them at my facebook page..

One of the best was the Four Seasons Garden.  I love this bed of flowers the most. Next, it was the rose garden.. and the fairy garden too. We didn't missed the parade. Next on the list was kimci making.. Kimci done by me.. A chance of a lifetime to try on the costume.  Another Korean dinner.. before we checked in the hotel. Another day to explore Seoul before we say goodbye to it..
