Auckland Library.

image

Yay! I got my library card to access the city’s public library. And its for free! How awesome is that?

The library is huge. It’s how a library should really be. Not like the ones we have in KK with lousy collection of stuffs, this is the real deal. I get to even borrow audio books and DVDs!

I never knew there’s this viewing place though, and its quite a relaxing place to kill time since it doesn’t get so crowded.

image

Also managed to use WeChat video call and talked to the Wongs before I leave.

image

Awww I miss these beautiful young ladies!!

image

And my bff, my big sister, Che Che!!

Charmed Bracelets.

image

My aunt gave me this bracelet with trinklets hanging from it.

image

Its got scissors, a pagoda, a teapot, a clothes iron, a bell, a teacup, an abacus, a handbag, and a violin as the charms. Don’t ask me what they all represent cos I have no clue!

image

Don’t know how much this gold charm bracelet is worth but though I may not exactly wear these often, I still treasure them because of its sentimental value.

Thank You Lord for blessings!

Its no coincidence. Fourth Uncle is here!

image

Last year when I visit my aunt, I got to be reunited with my eldest aunt! I mean its very rare to get a photo with these siblings together. And God is so good! This time I get to see Uncle KV!

image

Brother and sisterly love! Uncle KV drove up to Malacca from JB to do some errands and dropped by his sister’s house for a short visit. Aaaawww so sweet of him..

Uncle KV is not much of a photo person but my aunt is such a cheery person and always willing to smile on photos. Wish I didn’t have to have the double chin though 😒

Semi-homemade Prawn Noodles. #malacca #blessed

image

My aunt, the very diligent cook making my lunch! So blessed!

image

I wish I could help her with cooking but she can be quite the perfectionist and obsessive compulsive with certain ways of preparing a meal. She refuses to get my help with anything 🙄

image

She didn’t make the soup from scratch this time but used an instant prawn noodle paste instead. Says she got them from Singapore eventhough the packaging says its a Malaysian product.

My Prawn noodles and I.

My aunt says I gained a LOT of weight. Uh huh..

Window shopping with Christene. #collegemates

image

Had our breakfast at the Jojo cafe near Christene’s condo within Sri Petaling at about 10am. I ordered the Pan Mian with Century Egg dumpling but I felt the dumplings didn’t taste that great. I actually liked Christene’s food better! Dry Spicy Pan Mian noodles! I didn’t catch a photo of her dish but here’s mine.

image

After our brunch, Christene had to drop by The Amway head office to get some products for her clients but didn’t manage to get any since the special store was closed. We went ahead to Sunway Pyramid for a short window shopping session.

image

Lots has changed about Sunway Pyramid since I remember working in Video Ezy there for about two months. But the skating rink is still there though!

After a bit of walking around window shopping, we left the mall at about 1:30pm to head to the Bus Terminal at Bandar Tasik Selatan called the Terminal Bersepadu Selatan. From Sunway Pyramid mall, we managed to get there by 2:15pm even with a bit of traffic.

I was amazed at how big the bus terminal was! And still looking pretty new and clean. It actually looked like the airport! It even has departure halls with chairs people can sit on to wait for their buses. Wow.. amazing!

image

Good thing its a rather low peak week day at 2:40pm.

image

Taking the Delima bus to Melaka from Gate 4!

image

With digital screens and all!! My bus was slightly late in arriving, about 5 or 10 minutes but still managed to arrive at Melaka within 2 hours! Thankfully the journey was not dreadful as they have a TV in the bus showing Malay Stand Up Comedy show at the astro channel then the driver popped a dvd into his player and let us watch Jurassic World! Nice!

Dinner treat at Restoran Boston Baru. #firstTimer #KlangValley #Seafood

image

So Christene was craving for the Lala soup from this infamous place in Klang. I was not expecting to go out of town just for dinner but since she insisted that the place isn’t as far as I think it was, we went ahead with the idea.

We left her home around 6pm and it was still raining quite heavily. We got stuck in the jam for about an hour and a half before we managed to pick her husband, Ryan , up from the University LRT station.

By the time we arrived in Klang, it was already about 8:30pm. Thankfully because it was raining, there weren’t too many people out having dinner there. According to Christene, there were times when there would be too many people and it will take them 2 hours to have their food served!

image

With the Tee family! Ryan, baby Adam and Christene! Thanks for taking me out for dinner even when its already so late and even on a rainy day!

image

image

This was the cereal oat fried with Mantis Prawn dish. It reminded me of the dry butter prawn we usually have at the Beaufort Restaurant in KK. I still like the KK one though. This one was too sweet.

image

image

This dish was a mix of all kinds of meat and seafood, in one sizzling hot plate. Prawns, squids, fresh fish meat all in one plate with the sweet and a bit spicy sauce. I also thought this dish was too sweet for me.

image

Finally the dish we’ve all been waiting for! The Lala steamed and cooked in cooking wine! The soup was very alcoholic and spicy!

image

Notice I did not put how much each dish cost because I really didn’t know. I only know that for the 4 dishes we had, we rice and a pot of tea, the whole dinner cost us RM 75.00

Thanks again for the dinner treat dear!

It’s been a year and a month! #collegemates

image

My dear Christene was so kind to pick me up from the airport! Dropped by her house at Sri Petaling to leave my luggages and we went off to do a bit of window shopping at Bangsar Village Mall.

image

Since we didn’t have any idea what to eat around there, we went to somewhere familiar and quick, Paparich!

image

Ordered the Curry Laksa and soft boil eggs with butter kaya toast! I actually also ordered the Soy Green Tea Macha Coffee Jelly drink but it tasted so bitter I didn’t bother to take a photo of the drink.

Last year when Christene and I met up, this little one was still in her belly! Papams meet Adam Anderson Tee Han Yu!

image

He’s such a smiley baby.. so easily amused and cheerful! He’s already 6 months old!
