Adding Another One To the List

Adam now has shown an interest to another hobby.. it is bowling.. he used to love this game before.. but was forgotten until one day he decided to love it again??!!

Eversince that day he kept on asking us to bring him to bowl.. We even have to add bowling apps to the phone and even his ipad..

So one fine day we brought him to Sunway Pyramid.. Paid for one game.. and requested the gutter railing to be raised and let him play with the lightest ball available..

Thought he would get tired after a game.. we were wrong.. he requested for another game.. and even asked for another after that but we have to stop for lunch.. after much persuasion, we manage to have lunch and went back with a promise of coming back soon.. hehehe.. never went anything near a bowling alley eversince..

And these are couple of video of Adam bowl..

Makan - Makan || Restoran & Kafe Sakura Kristal, Taman Melawati

Another makan-makan trip to Sakura Kristal.. I guess this is THE place we go to if we were to eat out.. So we try something new..

These are what we ordered that night..

orange juice

Adam's garlic bread

Actually we ordered mushroom soup together with the bread.. but surprisingly they were out of mushroom soup.. and no other soup except for something else soup which I don't think adam would like.. So he only ate the bread and my chicken..

Mr. AZ's mix grill

Mr. Az's mix grill was the superstar that night.. it was worth every cent paid and Mr. AZ's love it so much..

my something-something chicken
Mine was a let down.. the chicken was dry with no sauce accompanying.. so I have to depend on the chilli sauce which I don't fancy much.. it's a no-no for second time.. most probably will order for adam..

Makan - Makan || Tony Roma's, Sunway Pyramid

Actually this is our second visit to Tony Roma's.. The first visit was a failure that we decided we wouldn't be coming back for future visit.. This time around we were together with some friends.. and one of the friend were craving for western food.. where in Sunway Pyramid to find a good western food? Search high and low (yelaaa..tu..) and end up infront of Tony Roma's..

Me and Mr. AZ was quite confuse on what to order at first.. after some deep thoughts (sound serious right?) and discussions (heh!) we end-up ordering Mushroom soup & garlic bread for Adam, while Mr. AZ had Fillet Medallions & bountiful ribs  and Steak & Wild Mushroom Flatbread for me..

What I can say is we enjoyed the lunch very much.. I guess we ordered the wrong menu when we first visited Tony Roma's..

Ubat Batuk

Adam and me tengah batuk.. tapi baru teringat still ada New Zealand's ice cream voucher from Adam IOP concert that will expire soon.. Masa jalan-jalan KLCC haritu.. me and Adam enjoying the ice cream while Mr. AZ pegi jalan-jalan tengok barang dia.. I guess he did enjoy his own shopping time sebab bila dia join kitorang dia bawak beg plastik.. mesti banyak beli tu..

Adam pon enjoy his ice cream sebab I gave him chocolate ice cream.. memang his favourite la.. tapi masa mula-mula nak order what to have macam confuse kejap.. sebab tak penah makan ice cream New Zealand ni.. taste almost semua flavour.. Adam without hesitation memang pilih chocolate.. luckily haritu flavour yang dia nak on prmotion.. so he get 2 scoops.. memang enjoy habis.. mama nak rasa pon boleh cakap "ehh.. no.. no.. no.. you eat your ice cream.." boleh??!!

Nasi Lemak Beras Bario

A couple of the colleagues went to Miri for work.. so we joked about bringing back beras bario for us 2 kg each.. didn't think that hey took that seriously..

Once they were back in the office they kept apologizing that they couldn't give us 2 kg each afraid of the extra load.. instead they would secara kerjasama prepare us nasi lemak beras bario.. true to their word they did that..

Murah rezeki pagi tu..

For general info : Bario Rice is regarded by the 'Orang Ulu' and natives as the finest and best rice from the highlands of Sarawak. It is grown on cool climates at an elevation above 1,200 metres. According to the natives, the rice is only eaten by the longhouse chief on special occasion. It is long been regarded as one of the finest rice grains of the world. It is famous for its soft texture, fine and elongated grains with mild aromas and splendid taste.

The rice is a home-grown, laboriously planted and harvested by hands using age-old traditional methods. In the planting of the Bario rice, there is no usage of pesticides and chemical fertilizers. It has all the attributes of organic rice with an added flavour and unique taste as a result of the cool, pristine and unpolluted environments where it is grown. It is perfect for health conscious consumers.

Makan - Makan || Restoran Sari Ratu, Ampang Point

Mak teringin makan nasik padang and jus alpukat.. but abah requested tempat yang ada gado-gado.. where else other than Sari Ratu.. luckily senang je nak dapat parking depan restoran sebab situ selalu penuh.. Dari luar nampak macam kecik je the restaurant tapi bila masuk macam whoaahhh!! bole cater untuk ramai orang..

We were greeted with a smiling face of the waitress and the food counter.. Kakak as always duty food order.. we trust her.. at the table another waitress came to take our drinks order.. so mak order her jus alpukat.. kakak go for es teller me and abah air suam.. Mr. AZ jus kot..

Selalunya lambat dapat order tapi couple of minutes lepas kakak duduk our order came.. ahahaha..  we ordered 2 plates of gado-gado, 3 pieces of ayam pop (fried spring chicken), belut goreng balado (eel), dendeng balado, dendeng paru, ikan nila goreng, sayur singkong (pucuk ubi), gulai tunjang (tendon), ampal  and mix sambal.. yummm.. terasa rembesan air liur dalam mulut ni haa..

That was the most silent lunch I ever had.. sebab semua pay attention at eating.. for the kids we gave them a plate, rice and a bowl of plain soup each.. done! memang tak kacau langsung..

dendeng paru
belut goreng balado
sayur singkong

gulai tunjang

I love the es teller.. its just similar to our local ABC but they added coconut strips, jackfruit and avocado.. refreshing!!

Father-Son Quality Time

Me and Mr. AZ made it a point that every weekend he would go for his tennis and brought Adam together for his outdoor session.. his session would consist of football at the futsal court next to Mr. AZ's tennis court.. sometimes he would play with couple of kids there but most of the time alone while waiting for the father to finish playing tennis.. I would call this their quality time together..


jumping happily

Makan - Makan || Padi House, Galeria Putrajaya

A colleague birthday celebration.. it was actually a surprise for her.. she thought it was a normal lunch.. eheheh.. this place became the place we go to whenever we need change from the normal cafe food.. 

The restaurant was fully pack because it was during lunch hour break.. We were ask to wait to be seated by their waiter since there were no empty table.. suddenly a group of ladies came in and directly seat at a newly vacant table.. whoaaahh!! nobody stopped them and act normal while there were a couple of us still waiting to be seated.. We went to the waiter and demand to be seated and express our disappointment.. After a while were seated comfortably as a table

While waiting for our order, a couple of my friend went to buy a slice of cake for the birthday girl.. and the rest was a normal birthday lunch..

our table
apple juice

beef taco
mine - chicken parmigiana if I'm not mistaken
cheese rice??
mongolian lamb cutlets - the must have
mushroom soup
The food as usual was great.. I tried their chicken parmigiana if I'm not mistaken.. and it was not disappointing.. while another friend ordered chicken rice something.. although I couldn't imagine fried rice with cheese but it turn out great.. others were a repeat orders from our previous visits..

I can see that he loves the outdoor.. need to exposed him to more activities..
