Dinner with the gang

I guess it's been a while since I last posted a proper food post. Hmm, taking food photos is not really 'my style' anymore, LOL!

Anyway, friends and I had a very filling and enjoyable dinner last weekend, it was an advance CNY dinner =D
We had our CNY dinner last year too.

 What pose is that Aden? xD



 Must bring something to keep the kids busy

 Very difficult to have a proper shot of the kids together, else it'd be a cute scene

 Anyway here's our group photo! ONG MALI! ^^





As for the food, it was the CNY package we ordered.


 First dish is of course the yee sang, and this is my first yee sang of the year...
Looks good? No. The abalone tasted weird!


Erm obviously these are just some cincai shots of the food... Haha. I am too lazy to take food photos already :p
Still got fish and dessert which I din't manage to snap.

Overall food were ok, the package is about RM 418. 
Though the kids were noisy running here and there, and Aden was like usual, being a sticky glue to me, I did enjoy myself, since it's been a while we gathered together.

Looking forward to our next gathering during CNY.

  1. Nice gathering, good food, good friends, lovely environment, very "yit lau", got "tuk tuk chiang" music playing in the background also or not? Yeah. if you notice, I also very lazy to snap food pictures already.. No mood especially when the boys are around, my hands and eyes gotta be on them all the time, so no time take food pictures, hehe..

  11. hahaha.. "taking food photos is not really 'my style' anymore"!! so true lah, actually we also seldom see you blog about food also.. and i totally support this, because you are talking about gathering with friends, so is what you ate that night more important than your friends?? i've come across some blog, post about gathering but then all food and no photos of the people, hahaha!! anyway, different people different style, i still enjoy reading either food or how the event goes also lah.. :)

  15. Hi Hayley, wow! Great pictures, and very nice friends. Must be a population explosion going on in Malaysia? So many babies, young kids, ha ha.
    And the food....I've forgotten CNY is almost around the corner.

    And you and family looking good as usual. Love your smile, Hayley. Have fun and keep a song in your hert.
    Best regards,
    Lee.

  16. That looks REALLY good! :)

    I like the abalone yee sang. The abalone is whole to boot, I would have thought it'll be sliced. It's more "luxurious" to be able to eat it whole, I guess. I would love to have that.

    I've always wondered, since an important part of yee sang is Nien Nien You Yu, there must be fish inside right? Abalone, even though it's called "pau yu" isn't really a fish, so does it count? I know a lot of places serve it.

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…
