Sikh Temple/Punjabi Culture

Image
Since it was the Sultan of Perak's birthday, I had decided to visit the royal town in Kuala Kangsar. Two of my good friends went along with me. I drove them to my Punjabi friend's aunty's place in Kuala Kangsar. 
Aunty made us the mango drinks which indeed quenched our thirst.

I was amazed by the Punjabi bed. It's made of weaved plastic and ropes too.

Since the auspicious day coincided with the birthday of the Sikh Guru, we were taken to the Sikh temple nearby.
I was glad to be in such a religious and clean place. We were needed to be on barefoot and cladded with a head scarf. it's a first time experience for both my Chinese friend and myself.
After the prayer with the chanting from the priest sitting in front, we were given a sweet dessert which I must receive it with both palms. Of course, we had to eat it.
We adjourned to the dining hall and had our breakfast. The Punjabi tea was totally different from our usual tea.

Since we had some time before lunch, we expl…

My cheese cup cakes

Image
Yearning to make a simple cheese cake. While browsing through the internet, I came across the cheese cup cakes. Methods sound simple enough so I got started..
But I did some alterations.
I used mini Julie's peanut butter cookies as the base.
Used 250g cream cheese
Used 100g icing sugar
Half teaspoon vanilla essence
An egg


Baked at 170degreesC for 15 minutes.

Cooled it.

Added blueberry jam on top of the cheese cupcakes.

Keep them in the fridge.
Tasted it and I like it..

MIL status

Image
Finally, I acquired a MIL status. My friends asked me how is it like to be a MIL. Well, nothing much has changed. Just that I have a new daughter to call me "mama"..
OK, let me tell you what happened on the 17th and 18th March 2017..
17 March morning A Garden Wedding  Just perfect for the couple.  Something new to me and I enjoyed it.

17 March night Pre-Wedding Buffet Dinner I had fun talking and joking around with my friends. My mum, siblings and relatives were around too. What about the boss? His friends made his day. He was almost drunk..

18 March morning The Wedding Day Tea Ceremony was carried out. Ang pows were collected by the couples. Ang pows given to the unmarried ones too. Boss bought gold set for the couple.

18 March 2017 The Wedding Dinner Total of 39 tables occupied. Boss couldn't get to invite the whole lot of his business friends  due to the limited space.

It was a memorable occasion anyway....

Ready for the big day

Yes, my son is getting married soon. Both the couple wanted a simple marriage but the boss insisted on a wedding dinner.
The date was chosen last year. Nothing much was planned. But recently, my sister-in-law said that something must be done according to the Hakka culture even though the bride is a Christian.
First of all, a prayer to the ancestors must be carried out. Some preparation are needed to be done such as getting the right stuff for prayers. Imagine myself not really into prayers. So my SIL will help to conduct the prayers.
What comes next, I'm not too sure. I was thinking that all is going to be easy but guess not. My SIL wants to discuss with me soon..
Anyway, looking forward to my son's wedding and also hope that all goes on smoothly.
Have a nice day, everyone!

My new phone

Image
I got my Oppo phone from the boss on Christmas day 2 years ago. After a year of usage, it began to show some problems. The worst problem was I couldn't access my Contacts. Thus, I couldn't make calls when I urgently needed it.
The second worst problem was it always hung up itself in the midst of a conversation.
And I couldn't comment in any blogs. My comment would be doubled. That explains why I don't go to blogs using my phone.
It's high time for me to get a new phone. I was supposed to get it after the first year but I hesitated. So the boss still owes me a birthday gift. Last birthday in September, I wanted to get a new phone but I couldn't decide which brand to get. So it's KIV again.
Recently, my girl won a new iPhone and she told me she's keeping her old iPhone. I didn't expect her to pass it to me.
Surprisingly, when she came back for the CNY recently, she presented her iPhone to me. It's still so new! I am so glad that I don't need …

Wedding Dinners

We are coming to the stage when our kids have grown up and they are able to get married when they are ready.
The very first wedding dinner that I attended was last year in February. My school friend's daughter got married in Taiping. 
The second wedding dinner was in August last year which was held in KL.  My friend's son got married.
Yesterday was the third which was held in Ipoh. It's my friend's son wedding.
