A Happy Weekend

Prior to my temper tantrum on Monday, I actually had a very happy weekend.

On Saturday morning, mummy and I tagged along with daddy when he sent his car for service. We have never done this previously because it was too boring for us. This time, however, we decided to follow him because there was a (quite) new shopping mall nearby :)

Having my mid-morning snack at the waiting area of the service centre

And then I spotted a kiddie play area at the showroom... loved playing here!

And beside the kid's play area, daddy spotted his "dream car", the Toyota Prius. He finally test-drove it and was one very happy man after that haha..

We then walked over to the Empire Shopping Gallery (this was the mall that we were referring to), which was just diagonally opposite the Toyota Sales and Service Centre in Subang, to while away some time.

Kiddy rides as usual...

Nice car! Daddy had his eyes fixed on the all-new Hyundai Sonata

We spent most of our time at ToysRUs, Popular bookstore and enjoyed a slow lunch at Lameeya. After spending a few hours here, we walked back to the Toyota service centre to collect our car and left for 1 Utama.

We just window-shopped here and later had dinner in New York New York.



We had mushroom sandwich and seafood pasta

It was quite a light dinner because we were reserving space for our Haagen Dazs dessert. We ordered a creation called Paradise.


*Drooling* Faster la mummy, I can't wait to eat it...

After savouring our sweet indulgence, we bought a pint of hand-packed home too (all paid using our redeemed HD vouchers).

The following day (Sunday), we spent the whole day at See-yee Por's (4th Grandaunt) house in Bangsar. Ah Ma and Gung-gung were here too. I was very happy to see cousin ZK. I told mummy that he's my favourite cousin and best friend haha. For 9 hours straight, both ZK and I played non-stop. We even skipped our naps and played till we dropped.

A "tender moment" with ZK. I liked him so much, I kept sticking close to him and even sat on his lap! *mummy shakes head* I also did this to him last year.

See-yee Por made popiah (spring rolls) for dinner. It was a mini family gathering because Tua-koo Kong and Grandaunt Carol (eldest Granduncle and his wife) were on a visit from Melbourne, Australia.

One big happy family and a table full of "liu" (ingredients) for the popiah

Some of the yummy condiments for the popiah

Mummy made quite a fat roll for me with braised turnip, egg strips, French beans, prawns and cucumber


Jom makan!

I had 1.5 rolls. Mummy had 5 big, fat rolls and daddy had 6! Absolutely delicious!

  7. Eugene: Daddy is an ex-Sonata owner for 7 years lah :p Once bitten twice shy... don't dare to buy anymore because of the low resale value haha. But the Sonata is no doubt an EXCELLENT car!

    Mummy Gwen: You are right. Daddy's current car is only 13 months old. We just look-see look-see and admire only la :)
