A simple celebration for papa

Had a simple dinner with mum and dad in advance of Father's Day.

With my dearest parents

Will celebrate again next week, when brother comes back =)

Went to this Hai Nan restaurant (海南村) situated at Lorong Tupai, Taiping.

Ordered their signature prawn, called 蒙古虾(fried Mongolia prawns), super tasty! RM23

Black pepper pig intestines soup (猪肚汤), slightly spicy though. RM18

Stir fry kailan with beancurd (清炒芥兰花). RM9

Another signature dish, claypot seabass. Heavenly good!! I like the gravy! RM68

Total bill is RM 125, including rice and chinese tea. The food here is abit expensive, but they have the quality in terms of taste, really. When it first opened, I had a bad experience with them as we already reserved a table and dishes in advance, but still spent 2 good long hours of waiting. Nonetheless, they improved now and I will go there more often, haha :P

  10. tats very sweet when having nice meal with dad & mom, & its so warm =)

  11. Nice celebration with your parents :) The food looks good! I think they are quite reasonably priced... only the seabass is a bit expensive.

  12. Got to agree that the bill is quite pricey. But since the food is great, it's okay to splurge once a while :)

    The fried prawns looks unique though...

  13. Robinson, ya most people say that =)

    YT, haha yes. A token of appreciation for them.

    Johnnie and Pete, yeah high 5!

    Yvonne, the prawns is their signature dish. Try it!

  14. Tht's simple yet cosy celebration, great dish and awesome company! How I wish to celebrate with my late dad...:)

  15. Hayley, it is very sweet of you taking picture with your parents so often. They must be really proud of you being their daughter. I wasn't touched by the dinner, I was touched by your action of taking pictures with them.

  16. Alice Law, thank you.

    Yan, I realise I seldom take pictures with them, must do it more often now. Thanks anyway!

  17. Chinese food is still more satisfying for most parents. Any meal like these will easily cost over RM100.00.

  18. Agnes, agree, chinese people still prefer dishes like this =)

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…

The unwelcomed birthday presents

(Note: Quite a long post, I skipped my afternoon nap to write this so please read everything ya!! xDD)

Past 2 weeks were really exhausting for me.

It all started on 20th April when Aden developed a mild fever, he was tired and sleepy, I let him skipped school for 2 days.

He seldom takes afternoon nap, when he does, it means he is not feeling well :(

The next day, it was Toby's turn😢
Poor boy, his temperature reached 39° and it was on and off~
Then I notice he started to have these cute double eyelids for a few days~ Haha not sure why~
He was feeling really unwell, very lethargic, no appetite and super duper clingy to me!

Then both brothers started to cough badly 😢😢 
So on the 25th, I brought them to the pediatrician again.  He examined both boys and suspected it could be pneumonia and even dengue (because their fever were on and off). Suggested to get admitted right away.
I wasn't sure if that's necessary because I knew once admitted, have to stay for at least 5 days (h…
