‘Tis the season to be jolly

Posted in family, love, the box of chocolates known as life on December 28, 2009 by twotwoeight

Shopped till leg pain. Sinful carnivorous meals. Sleep-ins with no alarms ringing. Mahjong sessions accompanied by nonsensical dialogue.  Cravings fulfilled – braised ginger duck, choi poh omelette, egg tart!

And of course, our (ahem) Not-So-Secret-Santa gift exchange. This year, we went a full circle!

This year, I received an unexpected gift which I will cherish for a long time to come. A duck for a duck.  From one of my favourite patients.

How was your Christmas? 🙂


Prince Charming in disguise?

Gotta go find me a frog…

How to get sunburnt at Genting?

Line up for 45 minutes for Space Shot…with the sun hitting your back for 2 full minutes.  Oh yes, and you have to be me. 😉

Aside from the “x” I had marked on my back for a couple of days, it was a fantastic trip.  It had been awhile since I’ve been to Genting, and seeing as it was a long weekend, Bro, PW, Mum and I took a day trip there.

We had loads of fun — goofing around with Chez and Pepe in the temple grounds, screaming our heads off on all the rides just for kicks, convincing Mum to go on the roller-coasters, eyeing little kids and their toys and then winning one for ourselves (which by the way already has a name – Lucifer), shivering in the cold after getting drenched at the Sg. Rejang Flume Ride and finally ending our day with a scrumptious meal at Kampung Bukit Tinggi.

Where’s Lucifer?  Well, he gets a post dedicated entirely to him…soon ;).

Simple Pleasures

Opened my fridge this evening and decided I’m going to have this for dinner.

All that’s missing now is soup.  Anybody wants to send me some? 😉

Katy Perry – Thinking Of You (Unplugged)

Caught this on MTV while I’m supposed to be studying…mesmerizing vocals.

I like this version better.

Irvin, The Koala Wannabe

Posted in kindred spirits on December 12, 2009 by twotwoeight

Attended Irvin’s first party last week when he turned a full one month.  It was his Mum and Dad’s housewarming party as well…however, he hogged all the gifts as every present was meant for him! (Okay, I’m guilty as well :P)

He’s a real screamer!  When he cries, the whole world stops and turns their full attention to him.  However, nothing pacifies him better than assuming the “koala” position on mummy…which is of course the stopgap while waiting for his milk to be prepared!

Little Irvin,

You’re my youngest Facebook friend, you know!  Keep up the good work…rajin-rajin update more photos of yourself and your mummy and daddy since all your aunties/jie-jies are so far away, okay?  I’m waiting for the day when you have a blog of your own! 😉

My Favourite Meal of The Day…

I love sleeping in on weekends.  I don’t enjoy this luxury most weekends which make it even more precious when I get to.  I love the feeling of pressing the “stop” button when my alarm rings instead of the “snooze” button and pulling my comforter over my head without having to worry about oversleeping.  When I’m finally ready to face the world and start my day at my own pace, brunch awaits! 🙂

Had a lovely brunch with Ev last weekend at d’italiane kitchen in Jaya One 33.  You can dine al fresco or hide yourself in a cozy corner while sipping your latte and having your own customized breakfast.  Heavenly! 😉
