Father’s Day–Round 1 at Elegant Inn

Daddy is not around on Father’s Day weekend, so the celebration was postpone to the following week. Joey showed me a broucher for Elegant Inn, which is nearby my company, on Thursday. I browsed through and the Lobster Promotion caught my attention. I seldom have the chance to enjoy lobster as it is very expensive. Even if I have the chance, the amount of meat very little. I showed my parents the broucher the same night and both gave me the green light to make table reservation. Too bad sis and Brandon koko can’t join as sis is allergic to seafood and she’s currently pregnant!! That means I am going to be the world most awesome aunty soon. Hehe. The promotion is 6 course meal for 3 person at RM333++. Since there were 4 of us (mum, dad, me and Calvin), we added additional 1 set of appetizer, soup and dessert.


Us while waiting for my parents. My sis don’t like my lace dresses but this is brand new. I can only wear when she’s not around and should not take much photo while wearing it. Hehe.


There are 2 outlets for this restaurant available in Malaysia. The one we visited is at Menara Hap Seng (behind the Merz showroom) while the other one is at Taman Connaught.



Just like it’s name, the restaurant is decorated elegantly. There are around 4 to 5 private rooms with karaoke facility. I browsed through the menu and their food are quite expensive as they serve mostly abalone, geoduck, shark fin and other expensive seafood. They serve dim sum for breakfast as well.


Our appetizer. Soft shell crab, chilled salmon and lobster with fried white radish cake. I love the chilled salmon and lobster the most (on the spoon). Sweet and sour, very appetizing.



For soup, we can choose between beef soup and shark fin soup. Since dad, mum and Calvin choose shark fin soup, I went for the beef soup. The beef went well with the special chilli paste. Soup was clear, sweet and most important, not oily at all. As for the shark fin soup, it is hidden in the dumpling look alike thing. Besides shark fin, there’s prawn and  scallop as well.


For the lobster, we can choose the method of cooking. The restaurant’s specialty is salted chilli padi and cheese baked. Mum choose salted chilli padi as I don’t really like cheese baked. The lobster is very big. The 2 claws are at the side of the plate and Calvin forgot to take a photo of it. The claw is as big and long as my palm. The meat was very sweet and fresh. Yummy yummy…..


The blur photo is actually Hong Kong kailan with preserved vegetable. Green dishes is a must for every chinese meal that we have. Sometimes 2. Hehe.


Chicken claypot rice with black fungus. I don’t really like this but my mum love it. She said this just gave her the idea on her next chicken rice dish. Haihhhh…. Luckily I’m on salad diet currently. Haha.



Snow fungus with pear tong sui and black sesame muachi and peanut paste fried balls. Hehe. I finished the whole bowl of tong sui because this is my favourite tong sui for all time. This is my favourite among the favourite by far as the amount of sweetness is just right for my taste. I skipped the muachi and fried balls as my stomach nearly exploded at that moment. If Calvin didn’t tagged along, I don’t think the 3 of us could finish everything. Especially the lobster. Definitely worth the price.


The non food related photo that Calvin took. He was amazed when I told him the kitchen door operates by sensor like those found at the entrance of shopping mall (when you go near, the doors will open automatically). This is his best shot of the door after several attempts. Hahaha.

Overall, I am very satisfied with the dinner that night. I hope my parents felt the same way too. Round 2 will be this coming Saturday with sis and Brandon koko and shopping as well!! It will be like travelling down memory lane where very Sunday, the whole family will do grocery shopping at Jusco Taman Maluri. Ahhh…. those were those days… Looking forward for Round 2!!!

Father’s Day & Debbie’s Wedding

I have a lot of fun over the weekend, especially on Saturday. I attended Debbie’s Wedding. That was my second time attending a church wedding. Both weddings are totally different experience for me. I was late, hence I missed the part Debbie walking in with his father. Good thing is I won’t have to cry. I don’t know why but everytime I attend a wedding (church, tea ceremony or dinner), I will cry during the grand entrance of the bride and groom. I can feel their happiness and joy. I wonder what will happen during mine. Hehe.




The gorgeous bride was my neighbour in my office for quite some time. We have the same enemy and spy on the same person but she was the brave one who stood up and “sound” that person. Hehe. Initially, she was sitting right behind me and we shifted to the other corner where she sat next to me. Since her table was smaller, we shared a lot of things together. This kind woman even change my water bottle every morning with room temperature water okay!! I missed her so much when she move to Marketing department. Me, Bie and Melissa will go out for lunch every Friday where we bitch about the bitches and bastards around the office. After I left the company, we went into separate ways. Bie, into a blissful and joyful wedding life. Mama Meli, pregnant with a baby boy. Me, working my ass of at my current company and paving the path of my own future. We do e-mail each other once in a while to check on each other but the 3 of us have been so busy with our life lately. I missed the lunch bitching session very much. We can never stop talking and laughing as we exchange gossips. Hehe. Once again, congratulations Bie. I hope you are reading this. You know I love you very super ultra much. Wish you and Joshua a happy and blissful marriage.


Another celebration will be Father’s Day. My Mie and Dee went to Kelantan with friends over the weekend, so I went to celebrate papa Pooh’s day instead. Luckily I have bought Dee a Father’s Day present earlier and glad that he likes it. Looks good on him. Hehe.

Papa Pooh’s day was celebrated at Neway Subang Jaya with Mama Pooh, Sister Pooh and Sister Pooh’s bf. This is my first time singing from 7pm until 2am in the morning. Although not continuous but by 1am, I was exhausted. We sang Mandarin, Cantonese, English and even Malay songs. Can’t blame me for being tired so easily at this age as the wedding and Father’s day fell on the same day. Hehe.




Papa Pooh has a new pen. He can’t stop smiling while admiring the pen. I guess his feelings was exactly same as me when I first hold the pink Gucci (the one that I will never ever own… haihhh). The smile on the face will never disappear. Instead, it will grows wider. Hahaha. The one who bought the gift will be very happy as well as the gift the effort on choosing and purchasing the gift was acknowledged and treasured. Although I can’t have the bag but I will it will always be the love of my life (bag category… haha), till the day I set my eyes on another gorgeous bag. But after one year, it is still way on top of the chart and so far no bag can replace it yet. You might think I am being over reacting over a handbag but everyone have something that they really like and treasure. Could be the SILLY PS3 GAME THAT DON’T HAVE ANYTHING NICE EXCEPT THE FINISHER PART, GUYS WITH TIGHT PANTS AND “YOU CAN’T SEE ME” THINGY GOING ON AND ON AND ON, earrings (my sis), WWE MAGAZINE THAT CAN ONLY BE FOUND AT CERTAIN BOOKSTORE AND THE DATE OF PUBLISH IS NOT FIXED AND I HAVE TO STOP AND WAIT FOR THAT SOMEONE TO GO IN AND CHECK AND SURVEY AND ADMIRE OTHER BOOK, while mine just happen to be handbags. Need not to be branded or expensive, as long as I love the design. But just so happen that each of my handbags is from certain brands. Hehe. I am not greedy. At least one from each brand will do. I won’t mind having more from Gucci as their pink bags design are awesome!! Aihh…. my pink Gucci ahhhh…….

Okay, sorry for the detour. Anyway, Father’s Day celebration with Pooh Papa was fun. I did embarrassed myself by singing out of tune, out of rhythm and most importantly, I was influenced by Shin to stare at the handphone for the pinyin lyrics, except mine was from Google search while hers was from her phone storage where she type the whole song into message/notepad form. Hehe. I will no longer laugh at Shin anymore as I get to sing more Mandarin & Cantonese songs than I used to. Most importantly, I get to sing along with Pooh. Hehe.

This coming weekend will be Dee’s turn. I still have no idea on where to eat. Haihh…. any idea??

A little bit of everywhere

School holidays will end tomorrow and I just realized that my blog was not update for quite some time. A lot have happened for the past few weeks. Here is a summary of some of the “big events”:

I went to Singapore for a short trip to visit my grandfather who has underwent 2 surgeries there. He has his implant removed and a spacer put into the empty space. He is currently still suffering from a bad bacteria infection that he caught on the first operation. I hope that he will start to eat more every meal so that his body will be strong enough to fight off the bacteria.

Wedding plans have moved to the next level where me and Calvin are planning on how our future room will looks like and our honeymoon. We have a lot of ideas from time to time hence our initial Plan A is probably has changed to Plan K now. The date of meeting the sifu and submission of our forms for registration is on end of this month while I’m 8 months away from my wedding. Excited!!! Hehe.

Work is at it’s crazy peak currently. A lot of hospital decided to chase for payment. Hospital A even said “Please settle the payment as we do not have money to pay for the salary of our hospital staffs including doctors”. Haha. Funny…. really funny.

That’s the end of the summary. Luckily I have 2 galz to talk with from time to time. We shared our life principles and I realized we have grown up a lot. Looking forward on the upcoming meet up with them. I need to talk to them face to face desperately.

There will be no food post this time as my weekends are spent either resting at home or completely full of activities with friends and family member. Will blog more about food next time.
