At Home...

This post is slightly backdated as it was supposed to happen on the 11th June which was my B's birthday...
Happy Belated Birthday B!
May you achieve great heights in your new career starting tomorrow...
Was planning to have a barbecue at home as my B simply loves barbecued chicken...
But since we only came back on the 11th, we were too tired to get the ingredients needed, so we had to postpone it for 1 day...
On the 12th, as I didn't sleep the night before, I went out to the market with my B, my mum & my aunt...
Bought lots of chicken, fish, sweet potato & stuff for the small barbecue planned for the night...
On our way back from the market, the sun rise was a beautiful sight to behold...

It's strange that I never did get any good sunrise shots as I don't get to see the sun rise so often...
It was really beautiful...

Another perspective...
There weren't a lot of clouds that morning, but it was still beautiful to look at, don't you agree??
All these shots were taken using my faithful Sony Ericsson K800i...
Beautiful shots, coming from a phone, huh?
We came home then and started marinating the chicken & fish...
Mum was busy cleaning the prawns...
After that, we took a nap...
Errr, I think I should call it a deep sleep... :D
Slept till almost 4pm when we woke up to buy charcoal & other stuff as well...
Even went to the Pasar Malam for some Taiwan corn...
Started the barbecue at about 8pm...

First batch, chicken!
Notice the colour of the chicken? They turned out to be pretty good...

We then added sausages, corn & bak gua which my sister brought all the way from Yan...

This time, we added fish & sweet potato...
The fishes were delicious!
I was surprised that my B ate a fish!!!!

My dinner for the night... This is always the case for the person who grills! :( You get to eat last when everybody else has been fed...

2 of these fishes were also my dinner... Yummy!
At about midnight, the party broke up & my sister left...
Only thing that I needed to clean was this...

Oops, it's still hot! Just leave it for tomorrow...

Penang 2 Days 1 Night...

I'm back after a few days of silence...
How's everyone doing?
Was in Penang on Tuesday night as I wanted to attend Uncle Hock's funeral...
Well, I was a little worried that there will be lots of crying and all that, as I have a weak spot when I see people crying...
Guess people don't cry at funerals anymore, as when I went, nobody was crying...
It felt more like an old friends' reunion than a funeral...
Saw Aunty, Ah Choon, Ah Fong & Ah Girl...
They're so grown up now that I barely recognized Ah Fong!
I tried to take a peek at uncle, but chinese believe that if you're afraid to look at the dead, it's harder to see them...
Which was exactly what happened...
I tried to look, but I couldn't see... Oh well...
Aunty didn't seem that well either, but hopefully now she will have a chance to get herself a body check up...
I left quite late, I think it was after midnight...
Went back to the house that I stayed in last time and had a long chat with my niece...
We chatted till almost 4 and I fell asleep at 7...
Woke up at about 1pm and then went out for lunch at Jalan Delima around 3pm...
Wanted to have our favourite Hokkien Mee, but unfortunately the stall was closed when we reached...
Had chicked rice instead...
After that we went to Chew Tian Yang to have a look at the goldfishes there...
Before walking in, I noticed something across the road...

You can never get to see this anymore anywhere but in Penang...
A peddler who sells his goods on his tricycle...
It's incredible that he can pack so many things on a tricycle!!!!!
Went in and bought more pearl scale goldfishes...

See how cute they look in my aquarium???
Bought 6 but only managed to snap photos of 4... Hmmm...
My niece wanted to buy an aquarium so I accompanied her & she managed to buy an entire set of aquarium, pump, fishes & deco for only RM56....
Cheap huh?
They even had a promotion going on, 10% off!
Anyways, I couldn't resist & bought a set for my papa as well...
Will snap a picture of the aquarium & blog some other time...

I'm so sorry for your loss, aunty, Ah Choon, Ah Fong & Ah Girl...
I'm sorry for not going over to see your father for the last time...
I'll see you all in Penang tomorrow night...

My Nephews...

It has been a long long long time since I last saw Henry...
Chinese New Year to be exact...
Since today I was free, I decided to bring them over to my house...
First cute little thing that happened was that Kenny sat in front with me on the way over...
After we left his house for about five minutes, his head dropped on my chest & fell fast asleep...
So adorable...
He's such a good natured baby, didn't even cry much...

Isn't he just adorable???
10 months old already...
But he's really big...
Looks like he's 1 year old, huh?

His funny face... Hehe

Him crawling to the edge of the bed...
Check out the sugarcane arms!

Making another funny face while his mum holds him...

Ahh, finally a shot of his relaxed face...
Grrr, those legs!

Henry, my beloved nephew...
He's still close to me even after not seeing me for so long...
But, he's a real chatterbox...
Gugu here, gugu there...
Till I was tired of answering his innocent questions... Hehe

Couldn't get a nicer shot of him coz he's super active...
Hard to get him to sit still...
But, hyperactive, chatterbox or not, he's still my beloved nephew, and nothing will ever change that...

Roses Craze...

Lately, I've been really into roses...
Every rose plant that I see, I feel like buying all of them...
A phase, I know, but thank God my B & my parents indulge me...
Check out these purchases that were made yesterday...

Yellow rose plant, bought it at RM8 only...

Pink rose plant, also bought for only RM8...

White roses!!!! I love this one the most!
They look so pure, don't you think?
Bought this for RM15...

Cream coloured roses... They're cream on the outside, & yellow on the inside...
Pretty special...
They're also RM15...

This is a special species of roses...
The rosebuds are rounder...
No idea what the flower will look like when it blooms, but I just had to get it...
Also RM15...
After going to the nursery, my parents joined us for fishing...
Didn't fish for very long as we only reached the fishing spot at about 6pm...
Only managed to catch 1 small snake head fish, so I just released it...
Took lots of sunset photos instead...

Beginning of the sunset...
Sky was still very blue...

A couple of minutes later, the sky changed a little...

Sky was already getting darker...
We then moved to another fishing spot, to see if our lucks got better...
Still no luck, so I captured the remains of a beautiful sunset...

Isn't it just so lovely???
I always take the time to appreciate sunsets coz it's not often that you can get to see something so beautiful...
The clouds looked amazing yesterday!

A last picture before we finally packed up & headed to dinner...
Had a nice day today...
First time having my parents there while we fished...
Came home and watered my roses...
Looking for a good place to arrange them...

In the meantime, they'll decorate the pond...
