I will back to work as usual on 2 January 2013 because Maine has assured me that she will be fine in kindergarten.  But I will stay up to 8.45am to ensure that she is fine before goes to office.

Today is the last day of 2012.  Any celebration to bid farewell for 2012 and welcome 2013 ? I just want a quiet night with my beloved family.  A simple dinner at home will be a blessed one for us.  No special dinner, just a simple home cooked food.

Actually we had early new year dinner with our 2 lovely girls last Saturday at Sunway Pyramid.  We had a wonderful time together.

Yesterday, we sneaked into our new house to take the measurement of the window so that I can start to shop for curtain.  Measurement for the room and hall also taken to ensure that the furniture we bought will be able to fix in.  Plan to shop for material for curtain tomorrow so that my mum can start sewing it before she is off for holiday for 2 months.  Will head to Nagoya in Tesco Klang for the curtain shopping.

Recap 2012

Today is 29 Dec 2012 and also the last Saturday for this year.  To recap what happen this year, I think this year is not a good year for me.  I suppose to get the new key to my new house but it is still not done.  Still waiting & waiting.  Even thought I changed job mid of the year, but I find that it is not as good as I thought. But life has to go on.  

There are so many FIRST time for me this year.  Some of them are like ....

1) Got my passport :)
2) Went overseas - Medan, Indonesia for our 2nd honeymoon
3) Went to Singapore for the very 1st time (don't laugh, ok).  I went there twice in a week.
4)  Boarded on ambulance in Singapore. Refer to my post here

and many more but I think that the above few is the most unforgettable one for me :)

I hope for a better year in 2013 and I believe that's everyone's wish.

I think 2013 will be a busy year for me. Cyn is sitting for her UPSR, mum is going back to hometown for few months so I will have to manage on my own.  We are expected to get the key of the house after CNY.  So now we already start to survey some of the furniture and electrical items which needs to replace.  We are expected to start minor renovation after CNY.  I will be going back to hometown next year for Ching Ming.

Those are some of my plans for 2013.

To celebrate the end of 2012, the year of dragon....we will bring the girls for shopping and nice dinner tonight before we welcomed 2013.

Another movie - CZ12

We went for movie again with our daughters last Saturday.  We are actually not sure whether to bring Maine for the movie or not because we worried that she might not enjoyed the movie as we are watching Jackie Chan action movie - CZ 12.  But finally we decided to let her tag along to enjoy her popcorn while we watched the movie.  To our surprise, she enjoyed the movie as we do.  I am not sure how far she enjoyed the movie, but she said the movie is nice and funny.  Most important thing is she never asked for toilet break.  She just complained that she was sleepy towards the end of show which is almost 12 midnight.

This movie is Jackie Chan last action movie.  I have been watching his movie since I was young and I grown up with his movie because my eldest brother is his fanatic fan.  So, he introduced his movie to me.  I will never get bored watching his movie over and over again.  

For those who have yet to watch this movie, go and watch it now !

Trip to Genting

This is an overdue post !!! 

We went to Genting on 9 Dec 2012. We went on Sunday and came back on Monday.  Take this opportunity to bring our 2 girls for a short holiday break since Tuesday is Public Holiday in Selangor.  This time we took bus and then cable car.  A bit tiring but a new experience for our girls.  I bought the 1 day unlimited ride for Indoor Theme park for 4 of us online and it costs us RM92 for 4.  We stayed for a night at First World Hotel and I actually got a complimentary room for my birthday last month.  That's one of the reason we went to Genting :)...since the stay is free.

The girls really enjoyed themselves to the maximum.  I was accompanying Cyn for the Euro Express ride and I almost cried after boarding it.  So scary man !!! Maine enjoyed her bumper car ride and I think she took at least 4-5 rides.  Cyn was also enjoying her bumper car at the adult section with her dad.

Happy Dongzhi Festival 冬至快乐!

Happy Dongzhi Festival

冬至快乐! 

Went home for lunch just now and had a bowl of tang yuan made by my 2 girls.  So sweet of them.  They are excited this morning.  I wake them up this morning before I left for work and I told them that I will be home for their tang yuan during lunch. 

Today is not the end of the world as speculated but it is definitely Dongzhi festival for us to gather with our loves one.  So, have you taken your tang yuan ?

Lunch

Ever since I joined this new company which is about 1km away from my house, I am going for lunch almost everyday unless there are some makan activities in the office. 

I enjoyed the moment to be at home especially now during the school holiday.  My 2 girls will be welcoming me at home. Cyn will opened the gate for me and Maine will welcome me with her smile.  When I leaving home after lunch, both of them will say goodbye to me.  I am like in the heaven.

Being at home is always the best.

Lunch at Mr Yong Tau Fu

We went for lunch in Mr Yong Tau Fu located at Kota Kemuning.  I bought some coupons again from dealhunt and bring my family to enjoy them with me.  This is the 2nd time I dine at this shop.  The first time I came here also using some coupons.  Look like I eat around using coupons nowadays.  This time they recommended us to try their dishes on their menu that is yong tau fu in claypot so we ordered 2 pots :- herbal soup & hot & spicy soup.  I personally prefer the herbal soup.

Sesame Fried Chicken Fillet RM6.  The portion is quite big, we have taken half then only photo was taken. :P

Hot & Spicy Claypot Yong Tau Fu - RM12

Soya Cincau - RM 2.20

Top - Vege RM6 & Bottom - Asam Sauce Sotong RM 8

Little Maine posing with the food
The other dishes we ordered are
Oyster Omellete - RM8
Herbal Soup Claypot Yong Tau Fu - RM10
Dumpling Soup - RM6
Foochow Fishball - RM5

They also have white, noodles and chee cheong fun.  I ordered the soup huang di mee and the taste is so plain.  Not advisable to order that.

The address is :

Shah Alam 40460
Malaysia

After lunch we went to Carrefour Bukit Rimau for shopping and we bought few packets of durian.

New look

December is here and 2012 is coming to the end. 2012 marked the 12th year we tied our knot. 2012 also is the first time I traveled overseas (so jakun right).  We go for our 2nd honeymoon in 2012.  There are so many things to list on happening in 2012.  There are still another 30 days in 2012 and I will enjoy it to the fullest.

I change my blog background and the blog title photo.  The photo is taken in my hometown, Miri Sarawak.

Happy weekend to all.
