On a Weekday Evening....

Rain or shine. Dark or bright.
It does not even matter.
The umbrella is always here.
You can say that it is my daily routine of exercise.
You can find me on the green lawn dog-walking my dog, Bambi.
Well a dog needs some exercise to put away tension too! ;p
And even stopped for awhile, sitting on the bench while enjoying eating plucking from the rambutan tree during its season.

It was raining again. One of my sibling is celebrating their birthday & so we decided to go to Maple Cafe in Damai for lunch.


Maple Cafe


The English style decor restaurant

A wonderful ambience I must say! :)

The Food

Yours truly Mango Fish Rice


Brother's Lemon Chicken Rice

Mum's Sambal Fish Rice

Sister's Asam Pedas Fish Rice

Kuya Rog's Chicken Chop Rice


What I think:

I took a day off today to settle something important. The procedure was so slow. Damn I hate it when there is no urgency to those people when it is really urgent! So much of me for being a careless person. Heehe ;p

It eventually did not quite settle today.
I wish it'd be done this moment but...
Another week or so.
For just a piece of paper.

********************************************

Went to the airport again.
It will be a frequent one I guess.
Terminal 2 , soon....
After another.

Met the unfamiliar there.
A mixed blooded pretty face, that I have never in my entire life once knew existed.
She looks exactly like the person I called uncle. Yes, obviously she's my cousin! :)
And apparently, she has been living in America since she was a little kid, moved & grew up in London. We did not talk to each other because she was so shy. And meeting was just a short while. My uncle said that it's bit hard to understand her for the strong British accent of hers. She does not speak Malay at all!

But I was glad I got to meet her.

****************************************

That's it !
I'm out of here!

Catch u guys again soon.

My Treat 04/10/08

"Where are you going to treat us for dinner?"
"Taiwan...."
*interrupted*
"What?"
"Taiwan?
Have you booked the tickets yet?"


Haha.
Yeah right.
Wait till I become rich to pay
& sponsor some air tickets!
;p

Anyway.....
back to the story.......


About a few weeks back, I treated my family dinner.
Since I've always wanted to try the food there,
I've decided to bring them to
Taiwan Restaurant in Kinarut.


**************************

The Place


An open air restaurant just beside the beach.
Has a very homey environment.
:)
Don't bother asking me what's on the sign board.
Obviously, I don't read Mandarin.
We were greeted by a bunch of lovely friendly
white doggies of the restaurant owner.
Cute aint it?
I just adore dogs!

**********************************

Meals for the Night!


Buttered Mushroom

A bit too heavy with just having a lil portion of this.
But it was nice enough for me.


****************


Fried Roti Canai
I love how it tasted like!
So soft even people with no teeth can eat it! ;p
Lotsa eggs & cabbages in it!

***********************


Pork Leg with some vegetables
My favourite dish among all! This I heard one of their speciality. Soft & tender, I think it took them awhile to cook it. The flavour was just perfect! The taste, simply love it! A bit pricey but worth it cause it wont kill my taste bud. Hee ;)

************************

Our lapsap bin.
Haha.
Kidding.
:P
This white furry friend just wanted some pork leg piece from my brother.
Waiting patiently to be fed! Heehe ;p
It was a wet, rainy and not to mention muddy too but it did not stopped us from enjoying every meal served. For me, having quality time with the family is what matters most. Togetherness. :)

I could hear, see the lightning from the sky.
The sound of the ocean breeze, I could smell.
Should have come earlier for the up front beach view next time around!

translation:
*lapsap = trash/waste

Eid Mubarak Celebration '08

Last year, I missed hari raya. So this year, I felt that I can't afford
to resist those irresistable food! And it's been awhile I went back to my Mum's village.
As usual 1st day of Eid Mubarak = Time to balik kampung ! :)
Or should I say it's time of the year to visit my Muslim's relative.


At Aunty Mimi's place

Here's my yummylicious meal.....

All sort Raya biscuits
Satay, Beef Rendang and Eggplant/Brinjal
Tom Yum Soup
My favourite! ;)
Kuih lupis and kuah kacang (peanut paste sauce )
Meet my adorable 7 month old
baby cousin Sherah !

She may look like a boy, but she is still so cute to me!
What I love about her is that she doesn't make a fuss at all.
I'll be willing to be her baby-sitter anytime.
Hee :)

And
baby cousin lil Shazja is just 10 days old!

Cute kan? ;)

**************************

After visiting Aunty Mimi's place, we headed down to
Aunty Bibi & Uncle Rosli's beautiful crib.

Frontyard

Baby blue sky and lushes green around,
and a big fish pond.
Just perfect no?

Everyone's favourite wooden rocking chair! :)

It's too huge for me though! Hee ;p

Taken after my rice meal



I was pretty excited when I saw my favourite kek lapis Sarawak being served!
I absolutely love it! ;)

While enjoying the view from the upper verandah,
I saw & snapped her while posing like this......

Say hi to my niece Alia in pink !
She was playing with my other nephew & nieces :)

A modern kampung house I look forward coming to every Raya.
The sunset view from here is awesome.

I really like those pink and yellow cushions,
brighten up the day!

We were there till late evening.
I got home feeling oh-so-bloated.
Still I'm satisfied,
a nice day...can't help smiling.
