Deepavali celebration

I celebrated Deepavali at Rajesh's house three days ago.

The view from her apartment.

First I was served cookies as appetizers before going to the main course.

Four dishes with steaming hot white rice.

Are you hungry already? My night shift just ended. Now back to normal sleeping pattern. :)

♥ Macarons ♥

I update today because I have a couple of pictures to share! Thanks, Miss Nurainie for the mackies!

Do not laugh but this is the first time I have eaten one. I love the texture and the sweetness of it. Yum yum.

9 pieces altogether in the lovely box. Every colour has a different flavour!!! I have all the colours!

Refer here for the flavours. I really love this page a lot. When I look at the colours, my mood becomes better.

An off day without movie marathon

The week passed by so quickly that it was another off day for me again. Remember the previous off day I went movie marathon? Oh well, I didn't go for a movie marathon yesterday because I was bankrupt. Erm, more to save money for a better cause actually. :)

So I had a mission to go to Prangin to make a purchase of a new drama in the market. The initial plan was to eat chicken rice near my place but the stall was not opened. So I went straight to the mall and had my lunch there.

The char koay teow stall at Prangin Food Court also sells chicken chop rice at RM4.50 with a free fried ice-cream. He guaranteed the chicken chop rice to be delicious but I was really surprised. Not in a good way.

I think it is a bit of a rip-off because there is nothing else but chicken and rice. I thought chicken chop rice should at least have some cucumber slices at the side. But the fried ice-cream is good so no further complaints.

For dinner, I bought a dumpling from the food court and the lady asked whether I wanted to open it or not? I thought, "Sure, why not? It will definitely be easier for me to eat if I do not have to open it myself."

This is how it was packed. First time seeing someone takes a dumpling home like this? Hehehe!

Not only she helped me opened the wrapping of the dumpling, she also cut it for me and 'seasoned' it with chili sauce. Yum yum! I have never eaten dumpling in such a pampered way.

So what was the drama that I bought? You see, I plan to only buy one set of drama but I ended up buying two. Drama addicts like me are too lazy to go for another round of bus trip to purchase another drama.

The Other Truth and Man with No Shadow.

I am currently looking forward to next month. We are going to have family reunion again. You will appreciate your family more if you are working outstation and reunion like this does not come frequent. :)

On a special note:

Happy birthday, Uncle Ho!!!!! Have a blessed birthday this year. :)

Dream House and The Cat marathon!

Today is my off day and I had an interesting outing with me and myself. With Elaine too in the evening. :)

Went for a movie marathon again today and I watched The Cat: Two Eyes That See Death and also Dream House.

This movie has the usual Korean scares and worth watching. A little bit like Dark Water at the end of the movie but... I shall let you watch it yourself. :)

The plot reminds me of Shutter Island but more interesting. There is nothing scary about the movie but the ending is unexpected. Go watch it!

As there was a break of an hour or so between the movies, I went food-hunting and saw this paratha roll kiosk so I was thinking, why not?

BBQ chicken in paratha with home-made soya bean at RM4.90. Quite a reasonable price eh? It'd delicious.

Oh, and I went to the computer shop and played around with Ipad 2. If I had the money, I would get one. No wonder so many people wanted it. It's light and easy to be carried around.

Later in the evening, I had Indian food with Elaine at Sri Ananda (opposite Sandy Bay Paradise Hotel)

These are what we ordered:

My three-layered tea. Diabetic induced. People, don't drink this often. It's bad for your health. Hahaha!!!

Briyani rice, mutton vindaloo, kadai chicken and masala naan (not in the picture)

Total cost of the dinner: RM32

After dinner, we were both very full. Next time, I shall ask my family to come here for a meal. The pricing is really affordable. Not a place for everyday dining, but it's an ideal place for a good meal once in a while. :)

Tomorrow is someone special's birthday again. Happy birthday in advance! And may you get well soon!

First Sunday of October in Penang

Happy Sunday to all of you! Went to church this morning and the topic was on faith. One quote that I like in the sermon was

"A person can live 40 days without food, 4 days without water and 4 minutes without air but not 4 seconds without HOPE."

Isn't that inspiring? As mere human beings, we need hope to be happy and lead a worry-free life. And what might that hope be? Of course, the answer is Jesus! Count upon him in everything you do because no one can provide the hope and love greater than His.

I feel refreshed after the sermon and I realise many times, I try to be independent and solve my own problems but that is not the way God created us to be. We are made to depend on Him, in good times or bad.

Oh yea, I met a new friend today. Before the service started, there was this pretty lass who took the initiative to sit next to me. It was too bad I did not have much chance to talk to her and all I know about her was her name was Eveleen and her right shoe was broken today. Sweet girl. Hope I can see her again the next time I go for service.

I am getting so lazy to blog nowadays. Currently watching a drama entitled Lives of Ommision - a series that depict the story of undercovers.

A note to mom: Hope you get well soon. Take more rest and move less for the time being till the wound is healed. May God's healing hands continue to be upon you. :)
