To everyone celebrating this festival, here’s wishing you a very happy Mid Autumn Festival. We are not celebrating this festival as we’re not Buddhist. So today is just a regular day for us but I’ll be making some chicken nuggets coated with Nestum for the gals. It’s my first try using Nestum as the coat and I hope the nuggets will turn out crispy. There’s also going to be a steamed Cod fish, a stir-fried vege and a ‘Wong Keong Kai’ or Yellow Ginger Chicken dish that I had cooked yesterday. I shall make a post on this dish soon.

Notice the difference in my blog?
It’s the new beautiful pink header that I’ve been wanting to put in my blog for a long time but just didn’t have the time or knowledge to get about doing it. I have to say a BIG thank you to this wonderful cheery mom who has kindly offered me her help in creating this lovely header for me. She had offered me her help quite some time back but I only had the time to go through my pictures folder yesterday to select 2 pix to email to her today. I must really commend her for acting so promptly and I was really surprised that she managed to get the header done for me within hours!
Thanks Anggie for your help and for your very prompt replies to all my emails. I really appreciate your help.

Last Thursday, we had Dim Sum for lunch at Imbi Palace Chinese Restaurant after my medical check-up. Dim Sum is our all-time favorite and is always top on Alycia’s list too.
This is what we ordered :
Siew Yoke (Roasted crispy pork). I’d forgotten to snap a pic of this dish as it was the first dish that arrived and we all walloped it within minutes as we were all very hungry. I must say this is one of the best Siew Yoke I’ve eaten. The top layer of roasted skin is superbly crunchy and the texture of the meat is also not too rough and tough. A small plate cost us a whopping RM9-00.
and Imbi Palace’s house special Tofu Far for dessert. I must say this is also one of the best Tofu Far I’ve eaten, apart from the ones from the famous Funny Mountain Tofu Far in Ipoh. It’s extremely smooth and also fragrant. Even Alycia who doesn’t fancy tofu loves this Tofu Far.
Before we left, hubby also got a box of mooncake. Though the snowskin ones tasted quite good but I don’t really fancy them as I tend to get nauseaus if I eat more than 2 slices due to the extreme sweetness.

I was at the park with the gals yesterday evening. For the last few days I’ve seen this group of 13-year old boys and girls from a nearby co-ed school loitering at the park after school in their school uniform. On normal days, I would see a few boys puffing cigarettes surreptitiously under a tree. On some days, I could see some of them trying out cans of beer under the slides. After they were done with their wanton acts, I would see them throwing the cans into the monsoon drain next to the park whilst some of them would leave their rubbish scattered on the ground. Yesterday, I saw a 13-year old boy and girl under a slide hugging each other, oblivious to their surroundings. When I went closer to have a look, they were so intimate in their conversations and hugging that they didn’t even notice me standing there. I was in disbelief that at such a raw tender age, these kids were already in love, more of puppy love I would say.
Minutes later, I saw this lovey dovey couple’s friends (also a couple) arrived on a motorcycle. The boy and girl, who looked like they were 15 or 16 year olds, were dressed very ruggedly with punkish hairstyle and jingling accessories and were holding hands lovingly and joined the hugging couple under the slide. When I saw this scene, I told myself that in future, I will never send my gals to a co-education school. These young kids, if without intervention from their parents are surely heading for trouble. The girl might be impregnanted by the boy and later seek illegal abortion. I can even imagine the boy trying to wash his hands clean by not owning up and accusing the girl of sleeping around. I’d seen this happening before to my school mates when I was a teenager.
Minutes later, I saw another group of 13-year old boys playing by the monsoon drain. They were shouting vulgar words in Cantonese and were daring each other to jump across from one side of the drain to the other and the gap between the monsoon drain is at least 2-metre wide. The boys successfully jumped across but 1 fell into the drain. Luckily he wasn’t hurt. Later, I saw these boys dumping trash into the monsoon drain. OMG, what a sight – these kids behaved like they were some ‘sampah masyarakat’ or trashy society. I wonder if their parents know of their activities after school.
When I was leaving the park, I overheard the same group of boys discussing among themselves. Guess what was the topic? Love. I overheard one boy ‘advising’ his friend in Cantonese that he should treat his girlfriend seriously and they were talking about true love or real love or something to that effect. My goodness, instead of discussing their studies, sports or TV programs, they were talking about true love and girls and they are just a bunch of 13 year olds. I just hope that in future, Alycia and Sherilyn would never be one of those girls whom I’d seen in the park yesterday – behaving like tomboys, shouting vulgar words, sporting punky hairstyle and hugging a boy who’s still a kid himself. That’s one of the reasons why I had quit my job – so that I can nurture my girls with good values and I pray and hope that my girls will grow up to be decent, obedient and lovely young ladies who will bring me pride and joy.
