A Special Day - 22-01-2012

I am turning into my BIG 4 today!! Yes, a year older and a year wiser, i hope not only my body getting wiser. LOL

Today it is also Chinese New Year eve, everyone is celebrating this day with having reunion dinner with family members. We had it week earlier with my in laws as everyone will be flying off for holidays. As for us, we will be staying at home, and go for a quiet dinner for just 4 of us.

My bunch of thoughtful and good friends celebrated my 40th birthday few weeks ago, despite everyone are busy preparing Chinese New Year and also busy with their work but they still take some time off to have lunch and dinner with me, I am so blessed to have them.

Food post will come out soon, at the mean time, just let me post some pictures.

Dim Sum & KLCC Aquarium

This year, new year's day fall on Sunday and glad we get one replacement off on Monday, and kids school only start two days after, at least we can spent sometime with the kids since during long school holidays, we all busy with a lot things and didn't bring them to go anywhere for holidays.

We all woke up quite late, and daddy suggest to go for dim sum, he said long time he did not have dim sum and there we go to Sri Petaling for dim sum.


Pan Ki Dim Sum @ Sri Petaling


Morning they sell dim sum, night time they sell Bak Ku Teh.



varieties of dim sum..



some fried stuff....



this is what we order, siew mai, har kau, fish balls...



my all time favourite - char siew pau.



lor mai kai, hmmm..this one taste so so, maybe they didn't add chinese sausage? Taste a bit "bland" to me, this is just my own opinion, maybe other like.



Hong Kong style "chu cheong fun" with char siew. yum yum!!



my two cheeky boys..


After our late dim sum brunch, we proceed to this place..................................



KLCC




chinese new year deco at KLCC...lots of lantern

It was a public holidays, and the place were so crowded with people and tourist!! We want to bring the kids to Petrosains, but it was closed. :( Then my boys request to go to Aquarium, they were there when they are 2 years old plus, i don't think they remember anything, but we do show them the pictures. This is their second visit.

We hardly go to KLCC, hubs took the chance to take some pictures of the boys.



Then from the lake, we walk over to Aquarium...

Lucky the queue wasn't too long, we bought the ticket and went in.

When we are there, just on time for the fish feeding. It is 12 noon and 3pm, two feeding session daily. Look at the crowd..we manage to stand quite near to the glass..

and we went on this conveyor things, it move slowly and make a big turn, my boys love it so much, and we went for two rounds and they even want for the third round.










we spent almost 2 hours at aquarium then we walked back to KLCC.


When my first time at the KLCC aquarium, i was quite impress but on my second time, i think it is ok, and especially after i had visited the one in Coex Korea (ooppppss...i have yet finish the post on my korea trip LAST YEAR, maybe i want finish it all, although it already become a histroy, but it still worth to pen it down here for my own reference. :) ) the aquarium is big and look so so nice.
