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, Mr. Nadhrain 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.

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 for being so understanding! I am grateful! Tutu you say?! Of course! and…

DIY Dulang Hantaran Fresh Flowers

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Last week was my BIL E-day. So I was assigned by my MIL to do the 'Dulang Hantaran' and it decorations including all the goodies inside the dulang.. since this is only the engagement event, not so much personal items to be included in the dulang except for the rings.. both for merisik and engagement..
Since last time during my Nikah day, I did the DIY dulang hantaran using the artificial flowers and this time around I was thinking to do it with the fresh flowers. I purposely wanted it that way just because I can save a lot of time (since I am way too busy with my PhD study and I have to travel to and fro KL-JB) and at the same time we can avoid the hustle of keeping the dulang covered with dust in the store room. Lol..talking about experience huh!
And most importantly.. we can save a lot of money.. Lemme show you the trick..

Sending off dulang for fresh flower decorations can cost you up to RM75 to RM150 per tray excluding the items inside the dulang. Mi…

Girls trip to Sabah

Memorial weekend after I had my HSG test, Mary, Kak Ju, Nini and I got to fly down to KK to spend three blissful days hanging out with our dear friend from uni, Jessica. The five of us studied together in UPM SIX years ago so we decided a reunion was a great excuse for me to ditch the husband and my little girl and have some serious girl-time in Sabah. Lucky for us Jess is an amazing host and planned everything out perfectly.

A few of the highlights were our stay at J Residence, the upside-down house in Tamparuli, Kundasang wet market, Desa Cattle Farm Kundasang, Luanti River Kelah fish spa and Sabah tea farm.

It was so refreshing to be with old friends and enjoy my first trip to north Borneo... and I can officially declare that I have covered most of the states in Malaysia (haven't cover Labuan yet!). yipsss!

My Instagram update for this photo: Waking up to this! -Our stay at J Residence Kundasang, the view is so breathtaking :)
Enjoying my morning view:)
