The Angel Arrived

We are delighted to announce the arrival of our first baby nephew, Gabriel, on 22 November 2005. Congratulations to Niq and Chui Ying! Angie and I are beaming... now 'upgraded' to Ah Nyong and Ah Pak (Ah Umm and Ah Pek) :o).

[Gabriel: Happy to have arrived...]

Back in Business

This is something we bought at the Batu Lanchang market. It looks like a vegetable from outer-space. Can't remember the name, so we'll call it the Disc Vege for now...

[Space-age Vege: What will they think of next?]

For dinner tonight, we had fried fusilli with pork chunks, carrots and capsicum. Long time no publish food photo, so drool!

[Fried Fusilli: Italy in China in Malaysia]

Wait a minute... where did these photos come from? It's from a NEW DIGITAL SLR CAMERA! *GRIN* *beaming* After cold sweating for 2 months, we decided that enough was enough! After ogling at various models, weighing the pros and cons, and doing a sitting-on-the-fence pocket burning assessment, we decided on an Olympus E-500. *applause* *bow, bow* :oD

Making My Mark?

It's exam season and I am in marking mode/mood *grumble mumble*. Thankfully I am sharing the teaching load and I have only to mark half of questions in the 100 scripts. I admit, this is not much but it is still called 'marking'.

Okay, enough of my whining... would like to draw your attention to a family tradition post on Ying and Niq's Niche. It gives you an idea of what happens when the family gets together for a spin in Pusing. Make heads turn, or tilt, doesn't it?

Back-to-back Birthdays

We celebrated a string of birthdays within a one-week period during the last week of October.

Two weekends ago, we celebrated Mummy's birthday with seafood dinner at Bukit Tambun by the river. We ordered two giant mantis prawns, soft-shelled crabs, deepfried baby squid, shell fish (tharn) and noodles. The soft-shelled crabs were of good size with quite a lot of meat.

Last weekend, we were back in Ipoh to celebrate my Dad and Niq's birthdays. We brought home two homemade date cakes to celebrate the occasion. On Saturday night, we had dinner at Fu Lim Restaurant. Two uncles and their wives also joined us. We had dry-fried prawns, a huge steamed haruan fish, soft-shelled crabs, pork ribs in red wine sauce, belacan kangkung and mixed vegetables. We had two bottles of wine to wash it all down.

Our camera is still being serviced, hence no photos. I am suffering from shutterbug withdrawal syndrome. Have to press a shutter release button sometime soon or else... *cold sweat*
