Going Bananas..

The boy always goes bananas over eating bananas.  He will remind me over and over again to get his favourite fruit whenever I go to the supermarket.  He loves fruits of all kinds but still bananas are rated his most favourite fruit. 
I remember him plucking one banana after another from where I hung them (on the door knob of the kitchen) when he was only three or four.  I thought a monkey had sneaked in and ransacked our house (bananas!) until I found traces of banana peels on the floor and him, at the other corner of the house, one of his hands still holding a half eaten banana!  He sure has a strong tolerance to bananas as I can't remember he suffered from either potassium overdose or diarrhea. Hahaha... 
Do your kids love eating bananas as much as mine does?

Five Sen5es, The Westin KL

It had become an annual affair that we stayed a night over the Christmas holidays at The Westin KL.  This year was somewhat different, we stayed our night there on the 7th day of CNY in coincidence with everyone's (Yan Yat) and yours truly's birthday.  Again, we found ourselves rushing to use up those vouchers before expiring next month! Duh.. I have blogged about the hotel several times here, here, here and here.
We had tried their Ala carte menu at The Living Room and it was just so-so.  Having not visited their new Chinese Restaurant, Five Sen5es (read as 5 senses), we decided to have our dinner there on the night of check-in.  We ordered a pot of crysanthemum tea, stir fried noodles, veges, pork knuckles and one pot of claypot rice with all the goodies of waxed duck meat, sausages, mushroom and what not to share and ya, and dessert for the boy. Taste wise, nothing spectacular but still, better than the Ala carte dishes at The Living Room.
 The Food
The Restaurant
The ambience was superb with aquariums of live fishes, classy deco and warm lighting to perk up.  The bill came to RM202 of which RM200 was offset with the voucher so we only paid RM2 cash for the meal. ^.*  Someone felt uneasy and blamed someone for being too good in mental calculation aka calculative.  No prize for guessing who placed the order and mentally summed up to the nearest RM200! ;)

It's The Thought That Counts

Be warned!
Read this post at your own risk!  It's a 'syiok sendiri' post alright.  Stay away from this post if you think you cannot stand a mom whose "syiokalingam" mode is activated!  ;) ;D ;P
 A gold medal for a mom
My birthday fell on the 7th day of CNY this year, which was also 'yan yat', everyone's birthday according to Chinese tradition.  I slept in that morning as I was nursing a menstrual cramp.  The boy came into the bedroom and greeted me, "Happy Birthday, mommy!  I have something for you but you must sit up first."  I obliged and before I could figure what he was up to, he put something over my neck. A medal, a gold medal!  He then said,"Mom, thanks for taking care of me and guiding me. You are the best mom in the whole wide world. Thank you!" followed by a wide beary hug and kisses planted on my cheeks.  Awww... I was so touched I felt like crying at that point in time. 
Daddy was amused to have witnessed the 'prize-giving' ceremony.  He jokingly said our boy was trying to please me to earn himself a "better treatment". Lol..I dont blame you, old man.  It's normal that you are jealous but just don't let the jealousy within you eat you up eh. :P  I also like the birthday present you gave me as much as the boy's. Thank you!
Apparently the boy bought the presents from Daiso a day before while he was out doing grocery shopping with daddy.  He was worried I might not like the presents as it was only RM5 each, he bought two items.  I assured him I loved everything and anything that came from him regardless of the money value.  It's the thought that counts!  Really!
And here's the second item from the boy ~ an hourglass.  He explained why he selected this item for me.  It's something about being patient but still I cannot comprehend how on earth to string an hourglass and patience together. *scratch head*   Anyway, I hear you, boy.  I will try my best to take my patience to the next level and not to scream at you at the top of my lungs when things don't turn out the way I want it.  Aha..

Restoran Pusing Public, Ipoh

*Wipes and blows off spider webs and dust* Time to update my blog again after a month-long hiatus. LOL...

I have read rave reviews about this restaurant and it was in my must-try list when we were in Ipoh for a short holiday during the CNY holidays.
On our first day in Ipoh (2nd day of CNY) after checking-in the hotel, we walked to the nearby shopping mall to do some shopping before hopping over to the restaurant which was just a stone's throw away from the hotel we stayed in.  I miscalculated the popularity of the restaurant and did not bother to make any reservation beforehand.   It was only 5.30pm but the restaurant was packed to the brim.  Needless to say, we got "kick-out" as the restaurant was fully booked till after 9pm! The waitress was kind enough to lead me to the captain to book a table for the next day with an only available slot at 9pm.=.=
Luckily the restaurant is just right behind of our hotel.  We had a good rest after our tiring but fun whole day trip to Lost World of Tambun before hopping over for our late dinner.

It was way after 9pm but look at the crowd!
As there were only three of us and knowing that the serving was big, we ordered a medium portion of fried rice and two dishes only.

Pan Fried Prawns
Stir fried rice ala yong chow style
Broccoli with crab meat, scallops and fried wanton
I wanted to try their speciality dish, tofu with fish paste and the boy wanted fried omelette to go with his rice but apparently the chef did not bother cooking such simple dishes during peak season. 
The bill came to RM73 including 3 bowls of rice and 3 glasses of tea, quite reasonable as hubby thought it would have been more.  Taste wise, probably due to the holiday season, the prawns tasted a bit too salty and the fried wanton was nothing to rave about, the filling being solely fish paste. 
Thumbs up for the fried rice though, the presence of "wok hei" made the simple dish ever so fragrant and delicious and the generous crab meat and scallops thrown in made the gravy of the last dish so heavenly, the boy finished one big bowl of white rice all by himself and mind you, not including the share of fried rice he had earlier.  How not to become chubby boy with such healthy appetite? LOL...
