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

  5. HeLLO Hayley,

    Happy Father's Day. I wasn't able to meet my dad yet due to work commitment. Hopefully by next week. So, your brother didn't make it too? Surely you will blog about your next dinner with your brother right? I hope things will go just fine.

    Any gift for your dad? I bought a gift for my dad, but will give it to him by next week. Hehehe

    Once again Hayley, Happy Father's Day and the meal looked delicious!

  9. Well done in bringing your parents out for makan, especially your dad. And, nice outfit you have there !

  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!

    Willie, thank you.
    Yes my brothers were at KL and will be back this weekend I believe. Gift? Nop, my dad told us not to buy anything...

    Barb, haha thanks ya!

    梦旅飞, 是啊!

    SK, LOL. Wont la... :P

    Angeline, yes the dishes are nice! Try it!

    珊姑娘, yaya, it was a simple yet nice celebration~

    ChloeRuoyi, but the seabass is superb delicious!

    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 =)

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


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…

BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…
