First Shopping Session for Our Baby

What have we been busy during this weekend? We were busy shopping, mainly for our baby's stuffs. I've been walking for almost 6 hrs till my leg had water blister ..... Well, its still worth it coz we managed to grab some stuffs for our baby! We do not know whether it is enough or not, seems like still have lots of thing to buy though.

Apparently, this is our first time doing shopping for baby stuffs and we noticed that there are quite a wide range of choices for infant such essential items, car seat, baby cot, stroller & a lots more, lots of brand with different price range & of course some with very stylish design as well. Looking at some of the prices surprised us, how can it be so expensive, like say a few thousand bucks for just a stroller?

[these are what we have bought]

[my leg turn up to be like this after the 6hrs shopping spree]

Fong Lye Taiwan Restaurant

[Crowds of people quieng outside]

We wanted to try Fong Lye Taiwan Restaurant for quite some time, the restaurant seems always full of crowd. There are many people already quieng up when we reached there. I thought we gonna wait for long to get a seat but luckily we got a seat in just 5 minutes.

[The Menu]

[ Mixed Porridge Set @ RM 17.80 serves with 3side dishes]

The menu features a variety of set meal, the Mixed Porridge looks so tempting from the picture and therefore I ordered the set meal to have a try, it is served in quite a small portion though.... well, for me, the taste is just ok, just porridge cooked with some mushrooms, potatoes, yams, onions, prawns and dried shrimps. Am wondering, is this taiwanese style of cooking porridge?

[3 Varieties of Supreme Diced Chicken @ RM 19.80]

Steven ordered Three Varieties of Supreme Diced Chicken, the set meal comes with 3side dishes, soup & rice with minced meat...The chicken sauce tasted great...This is a must try dish i would say!!!

Meng Kee Char Siew 明记叉烧

I wanted to visit Meng Kee Char Siew for quite sometime, and today, I finally have a chance to have lunch there with my colleagues. It is located @ Tengkat Tong Shin, just behind Jalan Alor. We went there early @ 12noon to avoid the crowd.

Meng Kee was famous on their char siew (barbecued pork). The char siu is sweet and tender,

Their chicken rice & vege is just normal but the char siew is a must try!!!!

We paid RM 60 for 5 of us included drinks, quite pricey though.....

Staff Party '08 @ Jogoya

Time flies...... and it's our annual staff party again, this year, we celebrated @ Jogoya, the same venue as last year!!! What's our theme this year? You would be able to guess from the above picture right?...haha

Am not going to talk much about the foods here as I personnally don't think their buffet is nice eventhough they have a big variety of choices!

[Group Photo]

["Cat Walk"]

OMG! the catwalk session was horrible, everyone must wear their mask and do a catwalk after that our one and only beloved judge will pick 3 winners among all of us....As you can see from the photo, there are 2 freaky ladies who can't stop laughing and cat-walking side by side....LuShia & I, haha...we were just too shy to walk alone, thats why we decided to walk together.

[Skyblue mp4 Player]

The final session and the one which all have been longing for, is the Lucky Draw...and you know what? I'm the first winner of the night, a consolation prize (that mean i got no chance to win the grand prize..... The consolation prize is a Skyblue mp4 player, well it's better than nothing right!!!

Purple Cane Tea Restaurant

Steven brought me to Purple Cane Tea Restaurant @ The Garden during the weekend. He visited there once & discovered that their foods are nice & unique. Purple Cane Tea Restaurant advocates a modern concept of light but flavourful dishes with less salt, oil, sugar and no artificial flavours. The dishes retain the original aroma of tea. This begins a trend of the delightful and healthy tea cuisine.

[Ginseng Tea Soup @ RM 5, Burdock Tea Soup @ RM 5]

The display picture is not tea, it is Ginseng Tea Soup & Burdock Tea Soup, an ideal appetizer of tea soups which is double steamed with different tea in Purple Clay Tea Pot and served each individually. The soups tasted excellent!!! This is a Must Try....

[Green tea rice @ RM 1]

[Sambal Cuttle Fish @ RM 18]

Sambal Cuttle Fish tasted great with the aromatic sambal paste & tea...

[Anchovie Spinach @ RM 15]

[Teow Chew Fish @ RM 20]

Well, the Stir Fried Spinach and Achovie with Tea & Steamed Teow Chew Fish just tasted normal.......

There are still a lots more dishes to try, will probably visit Purple Cane Tea Restaurant again!!!! See you there....
