My Christmas Day

Two of my friends invited me to their houses. One for breakfast and the other for lunch. I knew I would be very busy on Christmas day as I would be needed to wrap more hampers. Anyway, I stole some time to visit them.  At 9.30am, I went to Doris's place for breakfast. I went with another friend who was only invited. Doris was all smiles... I had three types of food.. Quickly rush back to work after some time. At 1pm, I went to Naidu's place with another friend. Naidu's family with the two of us in red. We had buffet lunch. Yummy! Best of all..when I came back from the visitation, I had a great surprise! guess what is it..

Historical Malacca

My eldest girl wanted to visit Melaka as she was having her work break. So I just simply goggled for a reasonable hotel, Terra Nova Hotel. It cost RM316 for two nights with a twin-bedded room. But I had to share my bed with my youngest girl as she wanted to tag along. On the first day: Straight to the Jonker Walk. First thing first: we had to try the chicken rice ball. Waited in a queue but just for a short while. Next, we had durian cendol with gula melaka, my favorite. Then, the nyonya dumpling which was so delicious so much so that we bought some home.

Happy Birthday Mum

My mum was on a holiday to HK recently with both my brothers. My eldest brother celebrated both his own and my mum's birthday on the day before they left HK. It was two days earlier for my mum. So six days ago was my mum's actual Chinese birthday and she's 80 years old. Coincidentally my youngest brother was on leave, so he brought my mum to his place in KL. His whole family celebrated her birthday. my mum with her DIL and grandsons Earlier on that morning, my SIL prepared misua with two red-eggs for my mum.
