Hungry eaters at Jogoya

Friends and I had the chance to feast at Jogoya Japanese Buffet last weekend. This is my second time there, the first time was years ago while I was studying at UM. Obviously, there's more varieties now! ;)

Took quite alot of pictures but I will just share a few here.....








I We ate alot of New Zealand and Haagen Dazs ice cream, haha





Sushis are my favourite too!






Glutton us....





We left the restaurant with our tummies FULLY loaded. To help digest, we shopped a while around Sg Wang Plaza before hitting the highway.... (Starhill is absolutely not a shopping place for me =_=)

Malls are filled with Xmas decor already!



Us at Starhill Gallery. Saw even nicer Xmas decor at the entrance of Pavilion but the crowd that night actually scared us away, LOL



Despite the price and the bloated tummy, I actually dont mind for another round of Jogoya ^^

20.11.2011

To some, 20.11.2011 is an ordinary Sunday but certainly not for us! My SIL became the official Mrs Lai and hence we've got a new member in the family ;)

The engagement ceremony was held at Taiping Buddhist Temple.



The handsome, Andrew and the pretty, Siew Li ^^


Some praying ceremony

SIL's friends came over



Hubby and SIL, look alike or not? :P


FIL and Andrew's mum were the witnesses that day


The moment.....


Both families (except for FIL and elder BIL)


Busy entertaining ourselves haha


The couple in the ceremony hall


What happened in the hall: a simple praying ceremony, vows reading, rings exchange and marriage certificates were given


A total of 22 couples were being engaged on this special date (but only 20 pairs in the photos). SIL and her hubby were at the far left. Congratulations to all of them!


Later on, Andrew treated both families to lunch at SSL traders hotel.



Thank you Andrew!


Once again, congratulations to Andrew and Siew Li! Hmm, wondering when will be the actual wedding ceremony? :P

KY's wedding dinner

Last weekend was indeed a good time to celebrate something happy. I attended an ex school mate's wedding dinner with a few friends.


l-r: yours truly, Crystal, Annie



A close up shot with the pretty bride, KY


Other single shots


Only us at Taiping were invited so it wasnt so happening. Actual dinner will be held this weekend at Puchong, so, another weekend to look forward to! ;)


The bride and the bridegroom


A group photo with the newly wed. Dinner was normal 8-course meal so I din't take any photos


Last but not least, the beautiful bride. Her figure makes people envious :P



Most of my friends were married, some even become parents already. The rest are queueing up to getting hitched too! Well, it's the life cycle. We do certain things when the time comes, right?


Next thing to blog, my SIL's important moment in her life! ^^

With some of the friends, and that's the instructor Susan on the second right

With Angie, the owner comes instructor for the studio

Lion dance performance


The owner. This is not really a newly opened yoga studio, just changed of management and renovation


Having some fun after the demo ;)


There were quite alot of guests that morning. To be honest, I felt nervous to perform in front of the crowd, but I told myself just take it as normal practise.....


The demo ended quite successfully I must say ;) Here's my instructor Susan and her cute baby boy



A group photo with some of the members. Notice most of them are aunties elder than me? They certainly have better yoga skills that me!

Oh no!! :(

Just read Robinson's blog about this warning message and it really give me a shock! Seriously I din't know about it at all, as I still can access my own blog and leaving comments to others.


* Photo credit to Robinson*

How many of you faced this problem when accessing my blog? Specifically the previous post about the versatile blogger award? I think this is the cause for the dropping number of comments in my previous post.

I'm sorry but I really don't know what is the cause. Submerryn seems to know about it and I hope everything is working fine now! :(

Do let me know if you are still facing the same problem..... (You can mail me at york[underscore]mei[at]yahoo[dot]com). Thank you!

p/s: Thanks Robinson for the information!

The Versatile Blogger Award

First of all, thank you Venie for the award! Come to think of it, I've actually blogged about this last year but I don't mind doing it again.

Here's the rules:

1. Post ur acceptance of the reward on ur blog and link back to the person that gave you.
2. Tell 10 things about yourself.
3. Nominate 7 Versatile blogs and let them know that you have award them.

So here's another 10 random things about me:

1. I used to join a choir team during school time for years hence singing is my hobby. Basically Mandarin, Cantonese and English songs ;)

2. I hate people queueing in between 2 lines just because they wanna see which line is faster to their turn. Excuse me, din't you learn in school?

3. My next destination to visit is New Zealand and I hope hubby reads this, LOL.

4. Hubby is my 3rd love and I'm his 3rd love too, how coincidence ya? haha :D

5. I don't read. The only book I read is Facebook ^_*

6. I'm the only daughter in the family and have 2 elder brothers, hence people always think that my parents sayang me more. But no, my parents' love is equal ;)

7. I love all kind of fruits except for durian.

8. I shop for clothes more, compare to bags and shoes.

9. Daydreaming is what I do best, haha :D

10. I miss my schooling times and always wanted to make a visit to my former schools.


Phew, this is harder than what I thought, haha.

Anyway, I'm not going to nominate any bloggers in particular because to me you all are great. However I do wanna see my frequent commenters to do this tag! And that means YOU!

Til then, enjoy your weekend~

Eat to live

Just a random post about food.

Went to the Sushi King RM2 bonanza yesterday with Yan and Yvonne and this round, I had only 4 plates. There were not many choices so not really in the mood to eat, LOL. Yan had blogged about it HERE.


Friend said it was kinda waste to eat only 4 plates during this promotion haha. My usual record is, 5 plates above, LOL.




Next, to me, the best claypot chicken rice in my hometown.

Sizzling hot claypot chicken rice! With add on salted fish and mushroom! The restaurant is called 'Ba Li' and it's located opposite Popular bookstore Taiping. But be patient if you going there cause the service is pretty slow..... But it's all worth~



Hubby went to a seminar at Ipoh today and all I can think of are the famous 'yim kok kai' (salted chicken) and JJ swiss rolls. But for him to locate the JJ swiss rolls shop might be abit troublesome so I settled with kok kok keh (chicken)... haha :P


Can't wait to eat! RM17 per pack

It's cold already but the taste is still bloody good~



Good stuff always comes in smaller portion.....



After chopped! Looks like ordinary chicken but trust me, they taste heavenly good! Thanks hubs!



I've just taken dinner an hour ago but now, looks like I'm gonna look for supper soon, LOL :P
