Oops, I forgot..

I am back in Cork!! *sigh*

Salam Ramadhan Al-Mubarak!

Happy fasting, people! =)
It is going to be 16 hrs of fasting here in Ireland.. *gambatte ne!*

Here is a simple dish for your "bukak puasa"

It is very easy to prepare yet it's delicious!
-a bag of sumi jellies (the cone-shaped colourful jellies that we love to eat when we were small)
-a can of fruit cocktail
-a can of evaporated milk (not condensed okay?)

-remove all the packaging of sumi jellies and put them into a big bowl, and pour in all of the contents of both the evaporated milk and fruit cocktail (the syrup as well).
-keep it in the refrigerator for at least 1/2 hour.
-if u don't have a fridge (haha), u can put in ice cubes instead!

and voila! It's ready!

p/s: if u can't find any sumi jellies (like in Ireland), u can substitute by using any kind of jellies, but make sure u read the ingredients ok? no pork gelatine please... =)

End of Summer Holiday.. *sigh*

Haven't been updating for quite a while now. The IBM at home was struck by ligthning when we were on our holiday in Penang. The total cost to change the IC (aka motherboard) is RM2000+. Might as well buy a new laptop right? So, after some thoughts and advice from my Dad's personal IT guy, Mr. Irwan, he decided to buy a new desktop instead. Because we already have the LCD monitor. So we went to Law Yatt Plaza to ensemble Dad's new desktop and Dad changed the internet service provider at home.

Let's start off where we left it, shall we?

Long, Tiring Day... was it worth it? hmmm...

The day started early.. well, comparatively... Left home around midday and came back at half past 8pm. All in all, around 7 hrs of walking + window shopping! Wow~! Mr Irwan came over earlier, then went to pick my cousin up. From her place, we drove to Bukit Bintang area. We parked in Berjaya Times Square (which cost us RM10), then we walked to Low Yatt Plaza to get myself a sleeve for my brand new laptop *wink2* and webcams for my cousin and Mr Irwan.

Mr Irwan, my cousin Miza (aka Adik) and I

From Low Yatt, we walked to Sungei Wang, where we just window shopped. From there, we went to Lot 10. Actually we wanted to go straight to Pavilion but it was raining heavily, thus the pit stop. Window shopped again. After the rain stopped, we went to the Pavilion. It was my first time there. =P. I lived in KL, and Bukit Bintang is just 10 to 15 minutes drive away (depends on the traffic) but yeah, that was my first time to Pavilion, no kidding.. tho it wasn't my first time to Bukit Bintang this summer.
Window shopping..

What did we do? Hmm, had our late-lunch in the food court. We had teppanyaki. Then window shopped with a little bit of shopping as well =P. And of course, I had the first taste of JCo donuts and bought a dozen for take away. My personal opinion, I don't get the hype going around about the donuts. I mean, I enjoyed it but I think I prefer Krispy Kreme. =P
Waiting for our Teppanyaki

So, was it worth it? 7 hours of window shopping?? Well, I did buy myself a new handbag.. =P. I think the best thing about today is that I got the chance to spend some time with the people I love.. (yes2, Adik.. that includes you..) =P

New Laptop

I'm happy~! =D
Received it on Friday (15th August) around 11am.. *wink*

Hectic week & Unwell

I wasn't and still am not feeling so good..
Flu + nasty cough which keeps me awake at night.
Still, it didn't stop me from enjoying the little time I have left before having to pack and leave again.. *sigh*

Wednesday (August 6)
Location: Lotus Restaurant, Jalan Gasing, PJ
Occasion: My annual banana leaf rice feast
Special thanx to Mr. Irwan for buying me lunch *wink*


Friday (August 8)
Location: Sogo, Pertama Complex, Jln TAR, Midvalley Megamall.
Occasion: Dad wanted to get some supplies for his smoking pipe and I shopped for a new baju kurung for a wedding this weekend. Oh, and we were browsing for a laptop for me~! =D
Thanx again to Mr. Irwan for picking us up in Bangsar station. =)

Later that evening, we watched the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympic at my place. It was magnificent, don't you think? *drools*

Dad in the LRT (you look so young, that's why no one offered you a seat, Dad~!) *wink*

Saturday (August 9)
Location: Renaissance Hotel, Bukit Bintang.
Occasion: Meet up with Lujain, my friend/classmate in Cork. She came over to Malaysia all the way from Kuwait with her family. A few of us took her for a "Malaysia Truly Asia" experience (as Lulu puts it). Took her on the monorail and went to Lot 10 & Sungei Wang. She had a taste of Nasi Lemak and then we went shopping, of course. *wink*
Back in Cork, we taught her a few Malay phrases. She loves to say, "Jom pergi ...." and of course, the guys taught her some curse words. *eyes rolling* hahaha

Ezlyn & Lujain lepak-ing..hehe
