CNY reunion dinner

On 07/02/16, we had our Chinese New Year reunion dinner!

Look at our dinning table~ 8 dishes all together!!! Huat ar~

Our half home-made yee sang which was actually a gift from our neighbour. We just added in some extra pear, pomelo, herb, jellyfish, peanuts and crackers!

Home cooked dishes by mummy! <3

My favourite~

BBQ goose

Gotta have some greens~

A whole chicken

This pic was taken a few days before when mum and dad were busy frying prawn crackers for CNY.

Look at the amount they fried! These are the best prawn crackers ever because mummy made them from scratch! Buying the prawns, peeling them, washing them, mincing them, kneading the dough, steaming the dough, adding colouring, slicing, drying and eventually frying them! Not easy~!!!

The final product~ crispy and delicious prawn crackers!

After class

Went for lunch with H after class at Pasta Zanmai and here's what we had:

Mini teriyaki chicken pizza

I always enjoy their pizza because of the sweet, savoury sauce which went really well with the onsen tamago! And personally, I'm just a huge fan of thin crust pizzas!!!

Mini hotate pizza

Mini ebi tempura gomadare pasta

I've always been a fan of their gomadare pasta and I order this dish pretty often.

Mini teriyaki chicken pasta

I'd say it's a pretty good deal, both sets were RM29 with a mini pasta and a mini pizza! I always prefer the mini set as you get to try more variety with the same price.

We also ordered a plate of tortilla wrapped sushi to share. Unfortunately, we were both not a fan of tortilla wrapper sushi, so we didn't really enjoy this.

Sensei was really nice, as a return for the scarf that I bought him from Bali, he bought this as a souvenir for me from Japan!

2 things that I will miss from Ipoh

Nothing grand and expensive, just 2 local, simple and delicious food.

1. Turnips rolled chee cheong fun with curry sauce from the local Simee market.

2. Egg custard from Thean Chun

This second one, I'm pretty sure I can get something similar easily in a convenient store, but I will definitely miss this one here.

Day out with cousins

Spent the night at cousin's house. It has been a long time since we had a sleep over like that at her place. 

The next day, we went to Pyramid for ice skating.....again, something that we have not done together in years!!

While we were rusty, we all did fine and had fun. 

After ice skating, we headed to Sushi Zanmai for a late lunch and here's what we had~


Chuka wakame~

Sakura ebi inari sushi, mentai tamago, mentai salmon

Soft-shell crab maki

Dragon roll with unagi

Sakura ebi sushi roll

Not sure why, but it feels like I haven't been to Zanmai in months and it was good to have some of their sushis again.

Trip to Genting with the girls

I can't believe that this was back in 2011. Probably the one and only time that the girls and I went on an overnight trip together.

We went to over to Jas place and left our cars there. We then took a bus up to Genting. I think we purchased some sort of a bus + buffet or theme park ticket. We chose the theme park instead of the buffet. 

Us queuing up for rides

I think it was raining and our trip to the theme park was cut short.
Chilling at starbucks~

Our ticket bands

So we went for an early dinner, followed by glow in the dark bowling

The next morning, we woke up early....bought breakfast from the bakery and went for a morning walk.


Our sampat-ness~

After that we went for a game of archery, followed by karaoke!

After that, we took a bus back and went for Thai food at my elephant.

It has been years and we've always talked about going on another trip together but we just never got around to do it. Really hope that we will get to do it again~

Year end dinner for the PGSC

This was also a super duper late post for an event back in 2014. 

This was for the year end dinner organised by the PGSC. 

Throughout my entire school life, I've never joined any student councils and there I was.....doing my post-graduate degree and joining the student council!

I did not regret joining though as it brought my new experiences and I got to meet and work with people from other fields which I usually wouldn't even talk to!

Here's a group pic of us in one of the discussion rooms in the post-grad room with all the lucky draw gifts before we brought them down to the restaurant.

Here's one of me with the best President ever. She was easy to work with, efficient, friendly and really nice. I'm really glad to have the opportunity to have worked with her! She treats all her committees well and care for them~

Here's the one whom I work closely with in the committee, especially for the year end dinner. We spend hours shopping, planning games and wrapping up the gifts together! It was great to work with C too as she is really easy to work with!

A pic with JM who according to her.....I am her shit picker in the lab. But truly, it was amazing to see how she has grown in the lab from a person who was super scared of the little ones to someone who is now super pro at handling them.

With the pretty ladies in my lab~

I am going to miss all the gossiping and complaining about our lab work together time~

And finally, one of the entire committee with the music club who provided us with fabulous sets of live music!

Now that I think back, I really enjoyed my time in the committee and I highly encourage students to join their local councils too. This will enable them to gain more experiences in working with other people, organising and planning events, attending meetings and thinking of ways to solve problems to make things better for other students.

First yee sang of 2016

Last night Ursula and I went for our first yee sang of the year at Sushi Zanmai. Looks pretty but then the sauce was too sour to our liking this year. 

California maki, the classic non-japan origin maki

Last night was sushi night~!!! Tsubugai, amaebi, wakame and inari sushi on the front platter and on the second platter, sakura ebi inari, salmon mentai, awabi mentai and tamago mentai sushi.

Then lastly an ika geso maki

Lol~ our rice packed dinner!!!

May this year be an amazing year and all the wishes we made while tossing the yee sang come true!
