Japanese BBQ @ Taman Desa

Two weeks ago , a day before father's day, we went to this unique and open air place for Japanese BBQ. I get to know this place from Barb, it's one of her hub's friend who operate this BBQ.

We didn't plan earlier, it's was a last minute things, since we also need to have dinner, we decide to hop by this place and try out the food.

We were there around 7pm, not very crowded, only few tables occupied, maybe it's located at a quiet place, not many people know this place yet.





it's an open air concept, the owner got the whole place to himself.





Mr. Seiji Fujimoto, the owner of the BBQ shop and he also own another restaurant too, Sanuki Udon, it's within the vicinity.


I had already try the food at Sanuki Udon last week, that will be in another post. :)





The stove with charcoal inside where we do our BBQ.

This is the cabbage and lamb pot, yummy!!




they have rice too, if you would like to have rice to go with the grill meat, it's chargable, RM3 per bowl.




meat, tongue, liver and vegetables, limited choice.



while waiting for the meat cooked, two of us camwhoring first. :)

Me and Barb.

Avillion Admiral Cove @ Port Dickson

~ A backdated post ~

Remember i mention in my previous post saying i am taking a few days off just to company my mum, my nephew and my boys? We were going for a 2 days 1 night stay at PD, with my three brother in law's and family. This is my nephew first trip to Port Dickson and my mum's second. We are staying at Admiral Cove this time, since we are the member of Avillion, we get free room stay, although it is a school holidays, we still can utilise the voucher, this is the plus point.

Hubs and the brother, they ride their bike to Port Dickson, and i drove my mum and the kids, "tailing" behind my another brother in law's car and sister in law's car. It was a smooth journey, traffic was ok, we reached in Port Dickson in 1.5 hour time.



A very nice hotel, i just love the view!!!















this is our room, but the design...hmmmmm..a bit "unique"




there is a sofa...




flat tv screen hang up on the wall...




bathroom...





and there is a sink in the centre of the room, very convenient, but look a bit "funny" . :)


I love their air cond, especially on a hot hot day. Most of the hotel we stay, we always complain it is not cold enough, but definitely not this hotel!








yacht...

Kids just can't wait, quickly change and they want to go to the pool and swim! Not much picture to share, because i am in the pool with them too!! Most of the time, when we go holidays, it always the wrong timing (if you get what i mean, LOL), i don't get to swim. This time we all in the pool for 1.5 hours !!!


All the kids just reluctant to come out from the pool, we have to drag them out, because all of us are so hungry! Shower them, change and we off to the restaurant that we frequent dine in - Top Seafood.



Get the boys to pose for me at the lobby while waiting for others.



my cheeky boys and their cousin...



we are too big group, we got 12 adults and 8 kids so we have to seperate to two tables, one for adults one for kids.


Late dinner, by the time we finish dinner, it's almost 10pm, back to hotel and rest, i think the men they go for some drink. Kids all sleep early, and they can't wait for the next day.


sit on banana boat..........



and this "air head"! I had it last time, but not this time i didn't join them, i just stay at the beach, look after the things, and look after the kids with my sister in law.


We spent two hours plus at the beach, play with sands and swim in the sea and play some water sport, by the time we finish, it's almost time to check out. Have a quick shower, pack the bag, and we are time to leave. Short holidays, but we know the kids are having so much fun. Especially my nephew, got so many the "first time", a really good memory and experience for him.

A fruitful day outing

It was a Saturday morning, i told my mum i am going to bring her to the biggest popular bookstore at IPC (Ikano Power Centre), since my mum want to look for some chinese book. We brought the kids together with us since during school holidays i didn't bring them go anywhere, except for the day before brought them to the bird park.


We had breakfast at Kluang Station, while having breakfast we heard loud noise from the concourse area, to our surprise, we saw a lot movie "characters" on stage and took pictures with everyone, i only realise they are having some movie carnival at the mall.

My boys and my nephew quickly finish their breakfast and hurry we went down.

Look how excited they are?





star wars and some other characters..



this is chipmunks i know. hahhahahhaha







After we spent almost three hours at the mall, we left, had late lunch at Kuchai Lama, then we went to this dessert shop, My Honeymoon, at Kuchai Lama branch, i heard so much about this place, but never been to, since my hub not a dessert person.


Too many choice, till we don't know what to choose, end up we are having this......


my mum order this "fu chok yee mai", taste so so only, i think our homemade one is a lot better.



the kids are sharing this mango snow ice. Nice and yummy. Good to have it on a hot day.



i am having this, don't know what it call, top with mango, and the bottom like some "flat noodles" but in cold, nice nice.


Brought my mum and nephew to Din Tai Fung for dinner, kids just enjoy the xiao long pao so so much, i can see my nephew enjoy himself so much this trip and so do my boys.

Bird Park revisit ~ 2011

My mum and my nephew were here during the recent school holidays. Beside than daily bring my mum out for some eating spree, i am not forget the kids too. I took two days off, it's a Friday morning, i brought them to bird park, since my nephew never been to bird park before.

I told the kids to wake up early, so it won't be so hot. We had breakfast at the mamak stall that nearby my house, then we off to the bird park.

Reached there around 10am, it was not so crowded, althought it is a school holiday. Easily to get parking and purchase the ticket then we start our "tour".

This is my boy's third visit, the first time we were with Elaine and family, second time they are with their kindy, and this time they are with their cousin and my mum.


this is the first birds that greet us....


i like this picture, my boys and their cousin and my mum. Too bad no one can take a picture of all of us, i am the camera "girl" for the whole trip.









this is the poor peacock with the ugly and almost all drop off fur, i asked the boys to stand behind the peacock and i took a picture and i told them i still can see them throught the peacock fur. LOL! I know i am bad.




birds are having their morning breakfast...





We "kill" our time by walking around nearby to snap some bird pictures while waiting for the first round bird feeding at 10.30am.










the three boys..




my two skinny minny boys...




mandarin duck?




finally it's feeding time, see all the birds gather in one place and wait for their breakfast.


























While we are waiting for another hornbill feeding session, we saw this koi fish pond, we bought the fish food at the vending machine, and let the kids feed the fish. They have so much fun too. :S














Cruz..








Fearles









a type of hornbill...





This time the hornbill feeding not much intersting compare to last round while the kids get to try their hand to feed the birds. After the bird feeding session, we walk to another side, the place where the kids looking forwards.........................................................


Taking pictures with the bird!! We took a group photo and purchase it at RM30 and the staff use my camera to take a few more pictures too.







Notice the grey bird on Cruz's hand? Cruz name him "hamsap" bird, while we are taking picture, it saw those bling bling things on my shirt, it thought it's food, it keep pecked me on the wrong part! Cruz keep laugh at the silly bird.





After the group pictures, the kids want to take individual pictures with the birds. You can use your own camera to snap, they will charge RM10, but they will only give you two birds. I don't know why my boys got so many birds on their hand and head, and yet i only paid for RM10
. After my boys then my nephew and even my mum also want to try. LOL











Then we proceed to the feeding lollies part, the kids look forward to it too. Two years ago, my boys were afraid of the bird, Fearles even cry when all the lollies stand on his hand and head. This time round, they enjoy so much till i have to "drag" them out from that place.






Not only kids enjoy, adults enjoy too...look at my mum!


























Spending almost 20 mins inside there, they still not willing to leave, keep ask me to buy more milk for the lollies to drink. I have to tell them, the lollies too full to drink more milk, later they will puke.


It's noon time, the weather getting hotter and hotter, we had some ice cream before we leave.



Another picture with the birds, my mum and her three grandchildren.

I am glad, the kids enjoy themselve and so do my mum. :)
