Thrifty Dinner

  Our girls have had their early dinner before their school activity yesterday evening.  They were not as hungry after the activity.  We decided to have lighter meal.  The place that we could think of is the nearby Indian shop.  

We shared this plate of meehoon which I ordered for myself.  My girl politely asked whether she could try some, at the end they helped me to polished it off....I ordered strictly non spicy knowing very well that my girls will want to eat as well.
Our main meal, Roti Canai kosong for each of us 
One coconut water for refreshment but my kids prefer 100+ after their exercise.

Total bill RM22.00 for end of month budget.

McDonald Happy Meal Hello Kitty toy

I have missed the first week of the new release of the McDonald Happy Meal Hello Kitty toy.  Happened to have lunch at McDonald on last Thursday, 23rd July 2015, the first Hello Kitty Birthday Party Fun toy has been sold out and over.  I only managed to purchase the Hello Kitty Birthday Balloon toy.  As for the boys and fans of Thomas & Friends, there are toys to add to your collections as well.
16 July - 12 August 2015 Happy Meal Toy
I only noticed last night that there is a Colouring Contest that comes with it, the prizes are pretty  attractive.  I will try to ask my daughters whether they are interested to join the contest.  This is the snapshot from my computer screen using my phone. please visit McDonald website for the terms & conditions.

Lunch on office desk

Munching lunch on office desk is a norm for me.  There are limited choice of eatery around my office, I usually bring ready packed food from home or buy some bread or buns before I come to the office.  I will have rice for lunch once in a while. Not for diet purpose but for convenience.  Lunch time is time to take a break and surf the net.  
Yesterday's lunch, not as healthy but will keep me full till dinner time.

Sales at Popular Book Store

There are a selection of books on sale at Popular Book Store now.  At RM10.00 per book is a very good bargain.  After ran through the books displayed on Sales, they are mostly novels,  Luckily I am not a novel reader, I will definitely buy half a dozen of them if I love to read novels and all my house works will come to a halt for me to finish reading them.

I always want to read the biography of notable and successful people.  There are a handful of these books on the shelves but they are not on discount sales.  
It is interesting to know the life journey of these world's successful notable people, their ups and downs in life hopefully will somehow give us some inspirations to excel in our own endeavors.  

I did not buy any books from this visit.  My better half has chosen these 2 books : "101 Econimics" @ 25% off, Discounted price is RM27.67 and "Buy High Sell Higher" for RM10.00 for he would like to know more about Forex and he wants me to read more about stock market.  
I wonder how many small traders can make money from Forex and stock market??  Big Question Marks here --> ????

Blissful morning walk

Woken up by the heavy rain at 4.40am, alarm rings at 5.25am..only managed to drag myself up from bed when my girl asked me to get up to send her to school.

"Are we going for a walk?", "think so" reluctantly I replied my better half. After sending our girls to school, we went to the nearby park to have a walk and get some fresh oxygen after the rain.  There is no chance for me to have any exercise during working days.  My jobs rely heavily on computer, therefore I got to sit down less walking in the office.

Wouldn't want to push myself to hard, I did only 3 rounds of brisk walking on the track in the park. The air is fresh after the rain.  Lazy at first but blissful after the walk.  The surrounding I have captured: 
water drops on the leave after the rain
children's playground in the park
concrete chair for resting
walking/jogging track

the steps

bright red hibiscus
Breakfast after the walk.  Mee tauhu Tawau style (plain fried mee with a bowl of fried taufu and taufu pok).  Not to my liking, but compensated with a glass of thick kopi kahwin.

All time favourite Roti kahwin

This is the all time favourite for the locals here.  Some kopitiams serve this roti kahwin from morning till night.  Soft bread sandwiched with generous layers of kaya (coconut pandan jam) and cold butter.  Best serve with milk tea or coffee. I could finish two servings at one go.

Carrot Cheese Cake

Everyone is on Raya holiday mood.  No morning rush to school as schools are on holiday too.  Expecting the road traffic leading to my office is less congested and easier to find parking, I took my time to have breakfast at home this morning.
The carrot cheese cake baked by SIL for Clet's birthday is simply yummy, I had a slice of that with a mug of teh C.
Selamat Hari Raya to all Malaysians.

It lasted for about 10 seconds just when I was combing my hair in front of the mirror this morning.  It started with loud shaky sound on the roof top, I thought it was a cat chasing after those naughty rats again, It couldn't be that bad that the chasing game made the whole house shaky.  Later then we realised that it was an earthquake.  The tremors woke our girls up from the beds, I could see their big eyes looking at us with a little shock of what they had experienced.

The whatsapp messages kept coming through with updates from friends & family after that.  So far we have not heard of any damages done following this earthquake in and around Kota Kinabalu areas except the worst hit areas in Ranau, Kundasang and Mount Kinabalu.

Many of the climbers are stranded on top of Mt Kinabalu for fear of loose rocks and borders would endanger the climbers from going down the mountain.

Major damaged road
One of our Donkey's Ears at the Mt Kinabalu has fallen off.  Luckily no damage was reported on the Low's Peak which resembles the highest point of the Majestic Mt Kinabalu. 
Many believe that the spirit of the ancestors are truly displeased with the act of the nude tourists at their sacred resting ground.

There goes my pot

I blogged  about  it  when I first used it which was new from the box (here).  

I planned to boil a pot of herbal soup last weekend using this little cute pot.  It was just after the water is boiled in the pot, I heard and saw water flowing out from my stove and wet the floor, then I realized the bottom of the pot has cracked beyond repair.
I couldn't carry the pot away from the stove as it was still burning hot.  The pot of soup thus drained dry leaving the herbs.  

I took the box & read again.  It clearly said can be directly cook from gas stove & durable.  I was very disappointed with it, off the pin it went.

Speedy 4 Dishes Dinner

Yes, we had 4 dishes for dinner without cooking merely have to heat them up and cooked rice.  It was in one of the busy night last week,  we tapau food from the school canteen.  The spread of dishes serve at the school canteen just like those in the restaurant, with much cheaper price.   We did that once in a while to save the time to prepare dinner especially when we come back late in the evening.

Clearing off old stock

I was once a home base florist while having a full time job.  Due to many contributing factors, I did not pursue further to develop the business and soon the interest have died out but the stocks that I have remained kept in the store at the family home.  During the recent renovation at the family home, Clet back my old stocks and old memories of one of my failed business attempts.  What should I do with them? 

Since my Kids Fashion business is in its last month of business, I am clearing off the stocks at the shop, it is the good opportunity to sell off the old florist stuff at the same time.  I offered a good discounted price to clear unwanted stuff in the house as well.  One man junk is an another man's treasure.

Stuff to clear at sales :
