Happy 2016

New Year: A Dialogue Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1909) MORTAL:     “The night is cold, the hour is late, the world is bleak and drear;     Who is it knocking at my door?” THE NEW YEAR:     “I am Good Cheer.” MORTAL:     “Your voice is strange; I know you not; in shadows dark I grope.     What seek you here?” THE NEW YEAR:     “Friend, let me in; my name is Hope.” MORTAL:     “And mine is Failure; you but mock the life you seek to bless. Pass on.” THE NEW YEAR:     “Nay, open wide the door; I am Success.” MORTAL:     “But I am ill and spent with pain; too late has come your wealth. I cannot use it.” THE NEW YEAR:     “Listen, friend; I am Good Health.” MORTAL:     “Now, wide I fling my door. Co

Christmas Day

How did I spend my Christmas Day? First thing first, I got up a little bit earlier than usual. Of course, with the help of the alarm clock. I did a little bit of cleaning up of my kitchen. No cooking on Christmas Day as I would be out for breakfast and lunch. The first house that I visited was my best friends' house. Never missed visiting them every year. This time I spent just an hour as I needed to hop over to another house. I had idly and puttumayam with curry chicken. My favorite! Just a matter of about 10 minutes or so to the next place. This was my first time at her place on a Christmas Day.  Remember I wore saree with her? So nice of her to invite me for lunch but it's an early one. After finishing a tosai with curry chicken and a little rice with mixed vegetables and pumpkin paste, I quickly called it a day. It's past noon and I had to be back to the shop and wrap more hampers. True enough, I kept on wrapping till almost 6pm a

Speedy Recovery

When was the last time I met Claire? If I'm not mistaken, I saw here sometime just before the Chinese New Year 2015.  Claire was away for her long holidays since she retired from work. We couldn't find the time to meet up. Recently, she injured her ankle before her trip overseas. Since she came back, I couldn't find the time to see her too. So I asked my friend for her address so that I could give her a surprise visit. But my friend suggested that we go together. Made myself free few days ago and picked up my friend to Claire's place. I thought of buying dim sum but she had too much of it already. She just wanted chee cheong fun, loh mai kai and pau.. Just before I made a move, she gave me some souvenirs from her recent holiday. Thanks Claire ! Wishing you speedy recovery! Take care! Being cheerful is already good in speeding up your recovery!

Aeon Gift Vouchers

Recently I redeemed three RM10 gift vouchers from TM online. I should have redeemed earlier as some 2K plus points were expired. Anyway, glad I got hold of the vouchers. They came in handy.  Bought two pairs of long cargo pants for the boss as his birthday is very near. With the total amount of more than RM200, I was entitled two RM10 cash vouchers. I was an Aeon member but I didn't renew it anymore as I hardly shopped there. But today I shopped and was told that I would be entitled the cash vouchers if I shopped with my member card. Thinking that it would be such a waste if I didn't buy those pants with an Aeon member card, I went to the customer service counter and asked for my girl's card number. With that, she earned some points.  But, I need to get back to Aeon as the boss wants a bigger size..

An Indian Wedding Dinner

My friend's son got married yesterday. We as her friends who reside in Ipoh decided to attend it instead of our Alumni dinner in Taiping.  A wedding is only once in a lifetime but the alumni dinner is held yearly. So my friend was very grateful that we chose to attend the wedding dinner.   My friend was the efficient planner of her only son's wedding. All of us blessed the matrimony of both the bride and the groom. We were served nasi briyani... and some delicious dishes. Congratulations to both the bride and the groom and also to my friend..

Our lucky day

Last Sunday, I didn't go to the shop. Instead I did some clearance of my kitchen space. Been holding on to some cluttering. Time to get rid of them. Without hesitating, I transported them to the recycling centre twice. Never felt better.. I just had my bath when the boss called. Thought he gonna ask me to get to work. Surprisingly, he asked if I wanted to go lunch with him. Normally we don't take lunch together. Got myself ready and we were hunting for a place to have lunch since it's already 3pm. On the way, we dropped by at a enchanting Indian temple. Took some pictures.. Next, we past by an Indian curry rice restaurant. So we might as well.. We had no intention to go anywhere else but something struck our eyes. There's a home fair at the stadium. Boss loves to look at suff. It had been ages since we last visited any fair/exhibition. We walked around and was tempted by this unique alarm lock. The salesperson managed to convince us.. On
