Happy Valentine's Day

Fuiyo!! Did you see that huge teddy bear on The Star? One lucky woman will be getting this one-and-only-in-Malaysia 1.17m Luscinia bear later today and it costs the guy RM960!! I am sure the guy will see some actions tonite, eh? *wink wink*

And then there is the kissing florist. Other than flowers and chocolates, you can actually order "kisses" and romantic phrases to be read out when they deliver the gifts. I wonder whether "french kiss" is available. Imagine some strangers went up to your wife or girlfriend, gave her a kiss and said "You're my love, my everything". And then how do we know for sure the delivery guy is really a florist and not a pervert. hhmmmm....

For us, is just another day. We have our days of expensive flowers and dinners, but now we are celebrating it nice and simple. Probably a stroll in pasar malam tonite, looking for my favourite kuih udang, and popiah. Gonna go back early too to look for Yiyi and spend some time with her. Then probably going back a bit early and retire early *wink wink*. hehehe....

Happy Valentine's Day!

Something really amazing happened last week.

My father-in-law passed away before Yiyi was born due to cancer. When he was still around, he told this to my mother-in-law.

"One day, when I am not around, and you see the house number of that neighbour, Ah-Seng, came out in 4D first prize, you go and buy their car plat number."

So when the neighbour, Ah-Seng's house number came out first prize in one of the draw last week, my MIL didn't think twice.

No prize for guessing what happened next.

The car plat number really came out in the next draw, and my MIL won... let's just say, a lot of money.

FGS Dong Zen

We visited the FGS Dong Zen temple over the weekend. We have been hearing it on TV and from friends and relatives about the place in Jenjarom having a Flower and Lantern Festival. I think it's an annual event, normally during chinese new year, and the event really put Jenjarom on the map of Malaysia.

The best time to visit is around 5pm. Enough time for you to stroll and admire all the beautiful flowers, plants and gardens. The lanterns and light displays start around 7pm.

...and more flowers...

There are a lot of activities organised, such as lion dance, dragon dance, performers on stilts etc. But the day we went, there was none. The most interesting 'performance' we saw was people swarming to follow these statue of buddhas, to get blessing in the form of sprayed water.

These buddhas (one is Goddess of Mercy, Guan Yin) are actually statues that were put on a rail around the compound, and it will went around and stopped at certain point. Then it will turn to face the crowd and spray water.

I think there should be an event calendar in their website, but since it's in Mandarin....and I'm a banana mah.

The festival is still on till Feb 19, 2006. Go ahead and visit the temple. To go there, from Kesas towards Pulau Indah, exit at Banting Intersection. Turn left to head to Banting. It's about 15km from there, with road signs guiding you.

There's also a photography contest going on. It has an Indoor Flower exhibition, books on buddhism, sculptures as well as a couple of other contests. It also has an area selling vegetarian foodstuff. But the price is a bit pricy. But then again, the entrance is free.

Nien Monster

Yiyi : *yell yell yell* Mami!! MAMI!!!!

Mami : *patience patience*

Yiyi : Mami!!! Mami!! *kick this...throw that*

Mami : *shaking....shaking.....*

Yiyi : *shout shout* MAMMMMI!!! MAMMMII!!!! MAMI!!!!!

Mami : *eyes turn yellow.....body turning green*

Yiyi : *climb here....jump there....dash dash...*

Mami : *muscle pumping up.... cloth koyak....leaving only undergarments...growl*

Yiyi : MAMI!! MAMIIII!!!! MAMI!!!!

Mami : *growl...turning into monster...ROAR!!! ROAR!!!!!*

*piak! piak!! piak!!!*

Last weekend, Yiyi has become really really naughty and difficult to control. Want this, want that, demand this, demand that. And she only wants Mami to 'serve' her. I think because of the holidays lar. She suddenly become so 'free' mah. Can eat freely (no thanks to GrandPa), can play with cousins, can stay up late watch TV.

So while feeding her lunch, she suddenly threw a tantrum and 'karate' her lunch, spilling all her porridge on the floor and poor Mami. Mami lost her cool and gave her little leg a 'little slap'. hehehe... Mami beh tahan.

So how's our CNY holiday?
Tiring. :)
