Steamboat lunch @ Elaine's House

During last week long weekend, me and Barb went over the Elaine's house for steamboat. We arranged this gathering on the very last minute. While i was chatting with Barb and Elaine, i said i got nothing on during the long weekend and hubs also not around, i told Elaine i want to go to her house and "disturb" her and ask her to teach me how to do "lor mai kai" so there we set it on the next day. We had steamboat lunch this round whereby last round we had "roast chicken wing" at my place.

I picked up Barb and Ashley from their place at 9.45am (very early lei)!! When we reached at Elaine's house, our first reaction is "WOW"!!!! BIG & HUGE & BEAUTIFUL HOUSE!!

We quickly bring down the "ingredient" then start prepare our stemboat lunch. We wrapped "wanton" and "water dog - sui gou", then all the balls balls. Elaine invite one of her good friend cum neighbour come to join us also. We four ladies are busy in the kitchen and all the kids are "messing" the toy room!!



Danny ( Elaine's hub) was the photographer, i did take a few pictures but not as nice as Danny (he is using DSLR lei), so i will use some of his pictures instead of mine. :)

Seo Gung Korean BBQ

Hubs was away for a week for his yearly cycling trip at Chieng Mai. He left last Tue, and my "makan makan"/eating spree start on Wednesday. hahahhahahhahahha

Wednesday we are having another round "makan feast" in office, same old menu as previous, but minus the lemang this round. :) We start our feast since morning till finish work, my stomach was full with roti jala, nasi lemak and satay. I skipped dinner on that night.

Thursday, i went for dinner at Seo Gung Korean BBQ at SS2 to celebrate one of my ex colleague from previous office. Four of us ( two of us already left and the other two still at the old office), we make it a point, we will celebrate each other birthday, to come out for dinner and also a time to catch up.

This time is PS's birthday (actually i got two long backdated post i didn't post on the other two birthday!!) She would like to have Korean BBQ for birthday dinner, we went to the one at SS2. I didn't bring my boys this round, i want to enjoy my dinner, so i told my friends, we have to go for an early dinner, so i can go home early. We went straight to the restaurant after work . Since i'm finish work at 5pm, i reach there before 6pm.

We start our dinner at 6.15pm (so early ya??). Slowly dig in the food, chatting and yakking at the same time. Too many food till we cannot finish!! Finish dinner, i still can eat two pieces of cake!!! Big eater huh. hahhhahah

Nice to have a girls night out once in a while. I reached home around 9pm, two boys are doing good at home, nothing "heart attack" moment for me. :)

Backdated - Starship Galactica

School holidays start, this mummy also become lazy. Not update my blog for a week...tsk tsk tsk.

This is a backdated post, my mum was here two weeks ago, she transit here for three nights, i took an off day on Monday ( 9/11/09) company her to go shopping. My boys also off on that Monday, since on that previous Saturday, it's my sons kindy concert, so they got an off day on Monday.

We went to One Utama for late lunch, me and my mum went for shopping, while daddy bring the two boys go to Starship Galactica let them "loose" some energy there. (Chin Nee, yes, i was at one utama on that Monday, you didn't see my two boys, because they are with daddy at Starship Galactica). Now it rain every day or evening, hard to bring them to playground, alternate way is paid and let them play at indoor playground. :(
