2013 CNY Yee Sang Dinner

Assalamualaikum wbt..

I'm not Chinese. Everyone knew that:) lol!
But we are 1Malaysia yaw!!
It was now a tradition that we have a Yee Sang dinner near the Chinese New Year, every year. So this is the second time we are invited by our GM for Yee Sang Dinner and this time was held at the same place at China Treasure, Sime Darby Convention Centre.

This year we were jam packed with parties, farewell, birthdays that requires eating eating and eating..
So around 30 people of Renewable Energy Team popped at China Treasure and the night started with a hearty fortune platter 'Yee Sang' which was graciously prepared with Pomelo, Salmon fish, Carrot, Crackers, Green Apples, Sesame Seed and coated with nice flavour of plum sauce.

All diners at the table then stand up and on cue, proceed to toss the shredded ingredients into the air with chopsticks while saying various "auspicious wishes" out loud.

It is believed that the height of the toss reflects the height of the diner's growth in fortunes, thus diners are expected to toss enthusiastically :) :)

Toss as higher as you can..

It was then the time of opening the fortune cookies. Guess mine was a rich and prosperous year. Boo-yah!!
We had great time enjoying our food even though it was 2 hours behind usual this group of RE team will never be punctual..lesson learnt..haha!
But one thing for sure, they all managed to finished all these 8-course meals..

We had Lotus Leaf Rice with Yam & Dice Chicken, Steamed Lived Sea Grouper in Garlic Oil, Baked Tiger Prawns with Salted Egg Yolk, and Roasted Duck "Pi Pa" style.

Braised Sliced Abalone with Black Mushroom & Dried Beancurd Skin.

Best that we enjoy chit chatting/gossiping with our colleagues during, as well as after dinner. Myself, Terry and Aesha:)

We had pleasure dining with the whole RE team. The dinner was amazing although it took longer time than expected. After devouring all the main, Alya and I had to rush back home before the kids sleep. We skipped few meals and desert and of course before we headed home, the girls camwhoring as usual:)

Saving the best for the last-Me!

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.. B's nature of work leaves me with no choice but to be independent. His work schedule knows no weekends and public holiday. But a kaki jalan I am by nature and nurture,what if it's only me and Aulia'? bring it on! Nak keluar jugak! I thought  it was impossible at first but naaa, practice makes perfect, I am so used to it already, you'll be surprised of what I can do with only one hand. Haha The skills develop naturally. From folding stroller and do groceries shopping while pushing the cart and her stroller? I have done all that. But there are time I do need hands from strangers, and kudos to Malaysians, they're helpful. And I think this is the perfect bonding time because Aulia' is with her baby sitter during the weekdays. Her new doll with blinking eyes and annoying sound..  So there are times, I'd love to doll up, but now I have a plus one! How? I doll her up as well! luckily she's a daughter, dear God thanks

Carnaval Churrascaria

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.. Last week we had an invitation from our boss for a departmental dinner.This is the third time I join in with the whole Renewable Energy team for official  makan-makan . So we had this dinner session at a weird place named Carnaval Churrascaria, (I still had a problem of pronouncing this restaurant's name) somewhere near to the Atria Mall in Damansara Jaya SS22, Petaling Jaya. Carnaval Churasscaria is one such Brazilian Restaurant, decked out with Brazilian national colour of yellow and green. It is a brazillian style where all the meats are grilled and the waiter come to each table with knives and skewered meat and slice it for us.. For non-MEAT lovers, you may opt for the non-meety buffet..they actually have rice, pasta, potatoes, salads and some seafood. For those who loves garlic bread, you should try their garlic bread which mixed with cheese..Two thumbs up!! yummy!  

Aulia' birthday party

Assalamualaikum wbt I am finally getting around to share few photos from Aulia's birthday party from a couple weeks ago. We had the greatest afternoon at my in-law's place with siblings, cousins and relatives celebrating our little girl turned TWO and Eid:) I think it's really fun to throw parties for our baby. I know she won't remember it, but it's her birthday and in my opinion, it's more about celebrating everyone in the family and we all made it! What a great year! I am so thankful my in-laws help me with last-minutes stuffs. Sunday morning was hectic! SILs had to pick up the cake and the boys spent the morning finishing off some of the decors (tied the banner together, arranging the furnitures, etc.). The tables, catering foods, fruits, candies and chocolate fountain were also delivered that morning. I took a few pics beforehand, but too busy with Aulia' to take any pics during the party. (My BIL manage to took pictures of the party. Pheww!).
