Mixed bag

Raw pepper (it looks like berries to me)

As you can see here, process white pepper

I did try this crackers, it was brought here (KK) all the way from Miri, Sarawak. Of course its pepper flavoured, not bad though.

Chocolate with Seaweed filling, I suppose it taste good, do you think so?

Dried Seaweed, I took this pix during the Food Crisis International Conference held in Kota Kinabalu

I had this recently (nasi lemak special) for lunch. I rate it as 4 stars :-)

My darling Isaac on a ride with Mr. Ultraman

Hi everyone, the weekend is almost here. There's an aura, a happy aura going on in this office right now, I guess everyone is looking forward for the weekend including myself :-D The weather had just entered a milder, for it has been raining the past few days and sunnier spell around this afternoon makes a lovely day out for most. Without realising it, March is just around the corner and to be exact this coming Sunday. I have not much to say here but some pix which I've taken this month(February). Wish you all a pleasant weekend!

Oh another angpow for Ruth from Grandma Maureen

Angpow to Harry from aunty Sharly

Isaac concentrating on something..can't remember what :-)

Chap Goh Mei represents the fifteenth and final day of the Lunar New Year period as celebrated by Chinese migrant communities. The term is from the Hokkien dialect and literally means the fifteenth day of the first month.

Last night we had our Chap Goh Mei family dinner at my aunt's place. The 15th day of the Chinese New Year celebration actually falls on today 09th February 2009 but due to the hectic Monday schedules, we fixed a day earlier to celebrate the occasion together with the whole family. It was really fun, giving away Angpows and mandarin oranges... everyone loves gathering especially with the families ;-) The food was all delicious some more a BIG pot of delicious soup...wah..lapar balik ingat ni tau... Anyway, looking at the food here makes me wanna sit and enjoy the food again hehehe.. Oh there was Lion Dance performance too :-D by my girls ( Ruth and Cynthia ). I couldn't take any pix of them, my camera out of batt.

Let's write..

She just love writing..it's ok you will soon learn more my dear :-D

Our 'Pengawas' awfully busy writing..

Ruth told me, the bigger mermaid is me and she's the smaller one..aww me with a tail?! ;-)
I don't know where she got that phone number (right side)

wonder what she's doing..

One night while I was busy doing some paper work, my two girls joined me on the same table together, each with a notepad, pencil and pen. For awhile I did not take note what was written on their notepad. Busy with their own 'business', I took my digital camera and snap few pix, and this is what was written in their notepad. At first I thought they wanted to write a letter and send over to this Astro programme, 'Oos and Aahs' :-)

Lunch with the Royals

Hello :-) , just got back from 1B, not for shopping, neither window shopping but a special lunch with the Bruneian Royals :-)
KDYMM Paduka Seri Baginda Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, his consort and the Crown Prince are here in the State for a 3 days official visit. Today the State Ministers, Federal & State Heads of Departments and Officers had lunch with the Royals at 1B grandballroom. I must say the setting was beautifully done and of course the ambience filled with golden yellow colours from roses(I've never seen golden yellow roses before-they are absolutely beautiful) yellow lillies to table cloths, draps..almost everything yellow lah..royals kan
Needless to say, everything were set beautiful for the Royals. And here are some pix I took this afternoon even though pictures aren't allowed at this function hehehe...('tapuk-tapuk')
I've also taken few pix with our two local singers, Marsha and Linda right after the function.
