A Special Gathering with Angel, Carol & Irene

I was counting and really looking forward on 26 Dec'09. As I was working half day, I couldn't stop looking at the watch waiting to be knock off. Hubby can sensed my impatience and willing to set me free a bit earlier to meet my blogger mama...thanks hubby ^_^

I was so excited when I saw Irene with twins (Aiden & Eden), Angel with Oscar boy and Carol with her boy - Shawn! How I wished that my twins were here too as I left them at home with my mom. It'll be more merrier & fun for twins when they see so many people & kids with them!

We've a short gathering at Wendy's. I was a bit retardant to join initially as I was alone there..yes hubby went shopping and it was my first outing by my own meeting my friends! But, as I saw the boys (the kids), I was happy and delighted. Oscar boy is super active & quite photogenic..lots of nice poses ^_^

Enjoying Christmas with Twins

Christmas is a day full with joy and love with family gathering.
I've a wonderful day with my family especially my twins.

On early morning, we brought twins & my mom to have dim sum at Puchong. Although it's just 8.00am, people were queueing for their seats. Twins were enjoying much with their dim sum. Their favorites were "Xiew Mai" & "Wu Kok". My girl loves to drink Chinese tea. She refuses us to feed her and insisted to hold the cup by her own and to sit on the same chairs like we - adult were. Her elder brother (my boy)is willing to sit on the baby high chair but sooner or later losses his interest in it when he saw his mischievous sister is doing some stunts ~Sigh!

After the breakfast, we headed home & faster bath twins & put them to sleep because we've important mission later at 3.00pm at IOI Mall. Yes, we're heading for Avatar movie with twins, hubby & my mom. Maybe twins were also excited going for gai gai, they wake up at 12 noon and we went to Bt 14, Puchong for the famous "yong tau fu"...a nice lunch!

We reached IOI Mall at was raining quite heavily. We were lucky to have a car parking near to the door entrance where hubby could drop us there. The mall was crowded with people as it was raining and twins just started to be excited to walk by their own with shouting & ee aa...their baby language!

Sharp 2.45pm we headed for our big challenge..yes the cinema after feeding them milk. My boy was so excited when we brought him to the cinema & it's my girl second times. I thought KH will cry but he was so excited when he saw stairs and wanted to walk & we have to hold him tight & seduced him with "pop corns"! My naughty boy even throw the mineral water bottle to our front Malay lady....luckily my boy smiled innocently and she just ignored him..else....I'm afraid we might need to send him out! The movie was nice & we really enjoyed the whole show, with me & my mom hugging twins to sleep ^_^

After the show, we went to Kenny Rogers for our dinner. Twins were looking at the menu...see how mischievously are they ^_^

I had a wonderful Christmas with my family, especially with my twins! Although it's tiring, the feeling is so good to have a family outing together. Yes, we'll definitely looking forward for another movie ^_^

Being Lazy

December seems a month of holidays to me - with continuous PH for Friday till next week. I've been lazy lately for updating my blogs (poor lousy excuses haha)
Anyway, this is the month of thanks giving & prize giving too. I've been lucky lately for receiving some small gifts:-
a.a RM10.00 voucher from FedEx last week as an appreciation for an online survey about their courier service
b.a kitchen towel & a cooking recipe from Naturel for participating in their last campaign which ends on 30th Sept'09
c.a nice Christmas card from my friend, Vinccy - thanks a lot & I really appreciate it.

I think I need to prepare some small gifts in return by this week for my friends too..and of course a nice excuse to buy things again for my twins wahaha.

Merry X'mas & Happy New Year ^_^

(I've no eye see this round - don't know how long mama is going to shop this round!)

X'mas Shopping at 1 Utama & Mid Valley

X'mas is just around the corner and I've love X'mas since I was a kid. I like it a lot, although I'm not Christian myself, I just enjoyed this special moment with my family. We normally have a small gathering-enjoying our meal & chit chatting.

Last Friday, we brought twins to 1 Utama after their nap. Change clothes, feed them some snacks, pack & off we go heading to 1 Utama. The traffic is smooth, not as bad as weekends. We were very lucky this round to find a car park as a nice couple showed us their parking as they were leaving ^_^

My twins were more excited than us, when we reached the shopping mall. Crowded and yet twins love walking by their own, especially my boy. He'll just walk very fast & nearly knocked down people, and they have to avoid themselves from not knocking my boy. My boy was screaming all the way as he walked passed the crowds and my girl starts screaming excitedly as she saw what her brother did too. Me & hubby is like chasing twins in the mall ^_^

We didn't shop much as not easy to buy things and at the same time hugging twins.
We were interested in getting Lorenzo's sofa set. Too bad we miss out the promotion, as the displayed unit were just sold off~ Sign! Never mind, wish us luck for another promotion haha!

Shopping at Mid Valley
Yes, we went shopping again at Mid Valley last Saturday, with twins.
This round, we were lucky and daddy bought a 32" Toshiba LCD TV at RM1299.00. I guess the price was quite cheap as Harvey Norman is having promo till 13 Dec and for a minimum purchase of RM200.00, you are entitled for a lucky draw. But, too bad we missed out 2x lucky draw..haha, although we waited patiently at the scene for our turn! Yet, we were delighted as we were given a Princess Sandwich Grill Set from the CIMB credit card with the TV purchase.

Didn't buy anything at MidValley later on, as pushing our trolley with the TV set & with twins in it, certainly not an easy task & when my twins start screaming..we are in big mess!
Yet, I enjoyed the outings with twins very much, although it's not easy & very messy ^_^

Some nice photo at 1 Utama

(My boy looking so innocently and posing, as he's not willing to take photo.)

(Me & my, my girl is running to her dad and peeping to the camera while daddy is shooting us)

(Me & my twins..not easy to take the photo with them at the same time.)

(At last, our family photo for X'mas this year, not really nice, but better than don't have any for remembrance, right?)

Some old memories ...Last year X'mas with Twins

(My hubby with twins...that time twins were with actual age of 7 months++, noticed my twins were quite small size.)

Another Attempts

Have been reading some recipes and I'm trying myself on weekends, if I've time as I won't be able to cook during weekdays as my mom will start criticizing me being TOO SLOW! (I guess you can't have 2 women in the same kitchen)
My hubby will be my target this round, poor hubby!
See what I've prepared for the family :-
Fried Rice for Twins

Fish & Chips for me & hubby

Uhm..I think I can do better next round. I've set target to learn to cook Teochew Dishes this weekend and if possible this Friday as it's PH. Hope everything goes smooth ^_^ BTW, any Teochew mama would love to give me tips in preparing the dishes?

Warehouse Sales at Popular, Summit USJ

I've seen lots of blogger mama updating about the Popular warehouse sales at Summit, USJ. So last Saturday after lunch, we brought twins together with my mom & brother to the place. It wasn't easy to find a parking there. We managed to find 1 after 3 rounding at the basement.

Lots of people there when we reached the place. Twins were so excited when they see lots of books there, especially Kiam Hong. He'll pick the book he likes and carry it along until he hunts for the next target. He even picked a book and passed to a lady at the bakery / cooking session. The lady just smiled at him & says thank you and my boy so happy and turned towards me for a hug ~ Sweet!

It wasn't easy to search for the books with twins around. We need to separate them. My mischievously girl, En Qi will just starts running at the area, while we try to catch her and her naughty brother whenever saw his sister acting, started following her and pulling the books to the empty baskets ~Sigh! My brother even starts complaining tired looking at my boy & I've to hug him tightly to prevent his mischievous acting at the area.

We managed to shop till 5.00pm and headed to the cashier. Guess how much we've spent?
RM100.80 only haha - I consider this cheap as most of the books were on 80% discounts. Picture says a thousand words, lets see what we bought :-

(ABC & 123 Magnetic Board - another toy to be play at the kitchen.)

(Daddy's comic book which he claimed must buy!)

(Our books - cooking recipes, stories book & etc. I managed to buy 2 books at RM1.00 each, cheap?)

Dinner at Zhi Jia Ren, Bandar Puteri Puchong

We headed to restaurant for dinner from USJ. I guess it's early to have dinner at 5.00pm++, where most of the Chinese Restaurant will have a short break from 3.00 ~6.00pm. We just waited for an hour in the car as twins were sleeping soundly.
I've saw from Sin Chew some weeks ago about this Hakka Restaurant : Zhi Jian Ren.
The food displayed is nice with good environment too.
Starving, my boy shouted to have his meal ASAP!

As overall, the dishes were OK there. The food were actually pre-prepared and reheated when you place your order. So the food were served quite fast. You may try for few dishes, as it's in small portion (for 2 pax only). However, I would like to remind you that the drinks & rice served is too expensive - at RM1.80 / drink and RM1.80 / big rice & RM1.00 / small rice and the portion is again very small. So I guess I wouldn't be back for another trying as I preferred freshly prepared food, rather than reheated food!
