Two-In-One

I've just been tagged by Marvic twice in two separate meme in just three days. It's a book of record for most often tags by the same person. I think I am gonna crown her Queen of Tags! lol! But she has chosen the right person to tag because I love tags! It's a great exposure for both myself and AGP. So peeps, ready to read more about me? :)


The first one is You Shouldn't Meme

The Rules
* List these rules on your blog.
* Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog.
* Tell 7 unspectacular quirks on yours.
* Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
* Link the person who tagged you.
* Leave a comment for each blogger

7 facts about me:
1. I love spicy food, the spicier, the better.
2. I don't like bitterguord.
3. Most of my life, I had my hair long.
4. I am a proud catholic. :)
5. I am a Teochew, but I can't speak their dialect.
6. I've just turned 27th this year.
7. I am an animal lover. :)

7 unspectacular quirks:
1. I prefer steamed fish than fried fish.
2. I don't like waking up after noon, no matter how late i sleep. If I did wake up after noon, I'll be a Miss Grumpy whole day long.
3. I like all my clothes to face one side while it hangs nicely in my wardrobe. And the hangers must all be the same too!
4. When watching a movie, my reaction could be very exaggerated. Like if a good guy is being chased by bad guys, i'll keep shouting "Run, run, run!" while stomping my feet.
5. I can control my emotion very well when I am working, but at home I am like a fragile little girl.
6. A yummy~licious dinner could make me forget all about my worries. :)
7. I am used to taking medicine, I can swallow 2 big tablets at once.


And the second meme is A Simple Meme.

The Rules:
Copy the questions below. Simply use the first letter of your name/nickname as your answer for each questions. You can't use any answer twice and don't use your own name for questions # 3 & 4. After you're done, tag 10 people.

Our Bedroom

Without our realization, it has been a year since we reside here, in our new home. I can still remember clearly the headaches we had when making the decisions on the house renovations, indoor lightings, lamps, home furnishings and decor. Everything is about good bargains and good stuffs. Who wouldn't want the best for their home and yet at the same time getting a good bargain? So, we went to all places looking for good cheap stuffs. When i said all places, i really meant EVERYWHERE. Just imagine this, we got our mattress and bed frame from Shah Alam, our sidetable from LDP Furniture Mall, our writing desk from Sungai Besi and our pillows, bolsters, comforters, bedsheet, bookshelf from IKEA. And that is only our bedroom! It was really a tedious experience and if i were to go through this again, i would choose to shop online from the comfort of my own home.

Instant Soto Vege

I simply love eating soto! May it be soto ayam or soto kambing, i just love it! That is why when my BFF marzie told me that she love soto too, i was delirious. It was a such great joy to found out that someone love the same thing as you. Like me, Marzie is crazy about soto. She even cooked her own begedil to go with the soto.



And today, I am gonna show you guys how to cook an instant soto vege in just 5 minutes. I've used vege because I don't have any chicken at that moment. You may use it if you want.


Ingredients:
1 packet of PAMA vermicelli
3 bird's eyes chillies (halved)
3 kaffir leaves (cut half)
1 clove garlic (chopped)
350ml/ 1 bowl water
Cabbage, roasted peanuts and fried shallots as garnish.

1. In a small pot, saute garlic and bird's eyes chilies until fragrant.

2. Pour in water, follow by kaffir leaves.

3. When water has boiled, put in rice vermicelli and seasoning. Let it simmers for 2-3 mins.

4. Pour into a bowl and garnish with cabbage, roasted peanuts and fried shallots.


So, easy enough, rite! ;)
Happy eating & Happy Friday, peeps! :)

My 27th Birthday

I had the most unforgettable birthday this year. It all started on 31st Jan night. On the 31st, I had to visit my uncle at Gombak with my families. And M have to visit his uncle at Kepong with his families. So, we were separated for the day. When we were to meet up at night, he has planned the birthday dinner for me. I wasn't expecting it. We had our scrumptious thai cuisine at Ahan Thai, Puchong together with M's brother: Marcus, his gf: Jen and my kai yeh (God Father).

Marcus & Jen bought me a cute little chocolate mousse cake with a huge strawberry on it. It was delicious! Thank you, you two! :)
After the dinner, the 5 of us went to Neway Karaoke, Subang. You know how people say time passes by quickly when you are having fun? It's true! It felt like as though we've sung for 2 hours only but in fact, we've sung for 4 hours already. Actually, i wanted to sing the indonesian song that i saw at MPG, but that night, i couldn't recall what's the song title nor the singer. Now, checking back, it was Cinta Kan Membawamu Kembali by Siti Nurhaliza. I shall sing this at my next karaoke session. :)

We headed for our breakfast at McDonald's after the karaoke session. And by the time we reached home, it was around 5am. The next morning, which is my birthday morning, M's mom called and asked me what i wanted for dinner. My future MIL & FIL will cook for me. Yay!! The feeling was great! As if you are the king of the day! :)

Again, the 5 of us gathered together. First we had lunch at Margaret's Yong Tow Foo, USJ14. The yong tow foo pieces were huge and yummy! Love it! :) I've forgotten to take the photos but will be sure to remember it next time i'm there.

Then, we went for bowling at Summit USJ. M & I are into bowling games lately, since few months back. And I even had my bowling gears as my birthday present. I'll show you my bowling gears some other time, k!

After the many bowling games, it was already time for dinner, so we headed to my future in law's. There, my beloved future MIL & FIL have cooked a scrumptious dinner made of love for me.
Thank you, Uncle & Auntie! I am so blessed to have both of you. Thank you, Mel & Steph for the cake! :)
The rest of the night was spent playing MJ and Blackjack. There, that's how i spend my birthday this year! Surrounded by peoples that i love! Thank you, Lord for all these wonderful peoples! :)


Before ending this post, i would also like to thank all my friends who has wished me at facebook. I am sorry for my late reply. I've only manage to check my facebook today. Love ya' all! :)
