First Weekend In March

Saturday
In the morning, while I was 'busy' at the computer, PaPa let XY play with bubbles at the house compound. XY blew bubbles while CE tried to catch them. He even tried to blow the bubbles that have dropped onto the floor. He sat down on the wet floor (it rained that morning) and blew with all his might. PaPa just let him be coz he's already dirty and wet. Just change his clothes later.

At night, we had dinner at a Korean restaurant in Sri Petaling. It's located on the top floor of a Chinese restaurant. I find that the ventilation isn't very good but we still patronise them coz the food is quite good and it isn't too far. It's better if it's an open air restaurant as it's rather smoky when they barbeque the meat. I know there're some open air Korean restaurants in Ampang. But we're not the type that'll travel far just for a meal.

~ The rice tasted much better than it looks. I forgot
to take the picture before mixing them up. ~

Sunday
For brunch, we went to Puchong (Yap Chuan Restaurant) for bak kut teh. Coincidentally they were featured in Taste With Jason on tv that night for their famous dried bkt. After that, we headed to Sunway Pyramid as Kakak wanted to buy a digital camera. We bought that for her as part of her bonus.

As the kids (especially CE) were fussing coz they've skipped their afternoon nap, we decided to leave early instead of staying on for dinner. And we had a simple dinner at home.

You just reminded me that I haven't taken out the bubble solution for the kids to play for a long time now. They just love it as your photo shows. :)

Siew Ting, I know there's a Dae Jang Geum in Bdr Puteri, Puchong too.

Jazz, Wen & Hui Sia, yummy leh. :D

Paik Ling, like that ah... will run out of breath vy fast lor. hehehe

Dora, u won't be able to c me lah coz the shooting wasn't on that day. :)

Jac, yup, the dried BKT is vy tasty but hubs ordered the vy fat part. Since I don't eat the fat, there wasn't much meat to eat. :D

Chin Nee, vy far to go all the way to Ampang jes for a meal hor.

Jess, go try it one day. Most kids will like bbq food. The girls don't?

Babybooned, she's our 1st maid too. She oso give me headache sometimes. But look at her overall performance. I'd say she's vy good edi, esp after hearing so many 'scary' maid stories. As for bonus, u can give her a small one.. to encourage her to cont. her good work. Mine has finished her 2-yr contract edi.

Joanne, w/ends is when we can go out n look for 'good' food. hehehe

Jacelyn, thx.. will get to it soon.

Mumsgather, kids + bubbles = pure fun! ;)
