A Lovely Dinner for my Dad's Birthday!

Monday, August 01, 2011

We had salted duck's egg yolk encrusted prawns (very crispy & yummy),
Sweet & sour pork (fried crisp with a coating of sauce),
Birthday noodles (quite yummy too!),

And........

The crown of the show, sweet and sour crabs! Very fleshy and sweetly fresh! Had a difficult time prying out the meat from the shells though.

Then we had mango mouse cake as the birthday cake.

A delicious day! But my Dad is getting old..........I had my picture taken with him beside the cake. If I had more money, I'll get him better gifts. I only go him a BPA free bottle to put his water in when he goes to work.......

Sounds quite delicious, an interesting menu, I love crab YUM!!
You know I bet your dad is very happy with his new water bottle,he knows it was chosen and given with love , and that is far more important than the cost.

Managed to get a little sewing done!

Sunday, July 31, 2011

Well, I've made some progress with my cross-stitch project but I still have a long way to go. I didn't go anywhere today. Couldn't afford to. I'll have to go the church next Sunday though. I have to return those library books.

I will take a photo of my cross-stitch project and post it here when it's all done! Keep your fingers crossed!

  


This Must be My Lucky Day!

Saturday, July 30, 2011

I walked to the nearby mini mall because I wanted to buy St. Dalfour jam. They sell the jam for a cheaper price over there. I also wanted to buy some Head & Shoulder's shampoo but it was a little too expensive so I bought a cheaper brand of anti-dandruff shampoo (Sunsilk).

With the money I saved, I bought a cheeseburger from McDonald's. On impulse, I whispered to the cashier if I could have some extra pickles in my cheeseburger. All I know is I got lot's of pickles in my cheeseburger for no extra charge! Wasn't that nice? I love pickles! Especially in my cheeseburger!

On my way home, I decided to drop in the convenience store at the petrol station. The manager actually treated me to 2 tim tams! (chewy caramel flavour, my fave!).

I feel very lucky today, plus I got my exercise in, 60 minutes of walking!

A Nice Day Out!

Thursday, July 28, 2011

I woke up around 11am this morning. I was pretty tired after yesterday's dialysis. Around 12pm, I had my lunch, some rice and half a fried fish with chilli slices in soy sauce with freshly squeezed lime juice.

Around 2pm, I decided to visit my gem of a hairdresser. I wouldn't change my hairdresser for the world! She's cheap (only RM10 for a haircut) and skillful and thorough, what more could you want from a hairdresser! Even the newly opened, fancy-looking, air-conditioned new place can't replace her! I will still return to my regular hairdresser because she's cheap and good.

Ok, maybe she can't do a digital perm but she's got my best interest at heart, recommending that I NOT perm my hair because my current hairstyle suits me! Unlike that new place, with an eye on their profits, recommending that new-fangled digital perm!

Then I went to the Indian restaurant for a quick tea. 2 vadais and a cup of iced ginger tea with milk (with a lot less sugar, you have to specify that!).

After that, I dropped in on the pet store, where I discussed the how & wherefores of keeping guppies and miniature hamsters, unfortunately, when I got home to ask my Dad if I can keep either, no go! :( I had a good time observing the cute little miniature hamsters, puppies & rabbits upstairs, and fresh water & marine tropical fish downstairs.

I spent considerable time in the pet store, after all, if I can't have my own, I can at least have the pleasure of staring at the store's sojourners without the bother of maintaining them! I would LOVE to have a pair of miniature hamsters but my Mom has a deep-seated fear of rodents........oh well! I guess I can always visit the pet store when I long for animal companionship............

On the whole, I nice day out. Right now, I'm sitting here typing this blog with my hair in a shower cap. I decide to end my day with a hair moisturising treatment. I will rinse it after I log off here. Then I'll take a slow walk to enjoy the late evening breeze.

I figured my walk to the hairdresser's, Indian restaurant and pet shop should count as exercise already (about 50 minutes walk in total). After I rinse my hair, I'll just go for a little stroll to enjoy the breeze, then it's back to SP to enter my food tracker. Because if I don't go for my walk now, it'll be dark later, it's already almost 7.20pm.

Cya later, SP! I'll be back!

    Glad you had such a pleasant day! I don't like hamsters because they're a little too rodent-like for me, but I have a guinea pig that I LOVE!! Maybe they'll let you have a guinea pig - they're way too round to look like a rodent.
