My last Blogging Sunday in 2010!
Wow 5 more days to a brand new year! Time passes faster when we get older it seems. I... I... can't believe that I'll be tw... twenny f.. f.... four next year...!
Anyway, let's leave the shocking oh-my-it's-2011-dy moment for next Saturday then. I've got some more batches of pictures for sharing here. :)
First and foremost the Broga Youth Camp from 131210 to 161210. But many ppl have uploaded the Youth camp pictures on FB already (and they could tell a more detailed story than me) so I guess I'll just dump all the camp photos on FB. As for my own reflection, I thank God for the opportunity to join the camp, to lead a group of awesome and interesting members, to know Pastor Anton's amazing daughter--Amazing Grace personally, to indulge myself in all kinds of thrilling activities in 3 days, to experience teamwork and enjoy fellowship with all the other youths in every session, and to be edified by God's words through the sermons! It's truly a priceless experience that nothing could exchange with!
And I actually cried on the last day when they asked each group leader to say a word or two to their group members! == *malunye* Before that when I saw the group leaders shedding tears as they shared in the videos of the previous camps, I was wondering... why la... just a few days only right? Who knows in the end I myself TT pulak... Sigh.. Never judge too early!
After the camp I think we had a breakthrough in terms of attire. (So irrelevant!) Hahaha... coz the following Sunday Caryn and I both wore the skirts which we had left molding in our wardrobes for months!
Eh Caryn wore SKIRTS without leggings or jeans okay~!! *applause!!*
And I think we had another breakthrough in terms of lunch as well.. hahaha... instead of the usual MJ lah, Subway lah, Face to Face Pan Mee lah, Curry Mee lah, Loh Mee lah, Georgetown lah... we opted for Vietnam Kitchen! ^^
Nice ambience.. with the dim lights and curtains that sort of formed personal cubicles@diners...
Only 4 of us... :( Where are you, you and you know who you are?
Fresh Chestnut Juice that came in a set with my Grilled Beef Celery Set, RM18.90++.. I simply love the crunchy bits of chestnut in every sip! ^^b
Not bad.. the portion was just fine. Caryn ordered the same set without the drinks.. RM16.90++
The spring rolls came in a cute lil' basket! Just a lil' too salty but the sauce for dipping was excellente~!!
And Lucas's Grilled Lemongrass Pork Chop Set, RM16.90++ as well... Didn't try his but they looked yummy enough.. :)
Lubie's Claypot Caramel Pork Belly Set, RM19.90++ Oooh this was smashing!! I've always LOVED porky's tummy~!!
And that's for 191210 lunch, leaving us determined to work harder in the coming week. Hahaha...
On the following Tuesday 211210 TSTMMV had a Christmas party in the training room.. Didn't plan to go at 1st coz it started at 10pm after work! And when it's late at night, things could become unpredictable... or uncontrollable, righto? Nevertheless we went.. and I could only say that the best things that night was the food...;
the goodies bag for each of us was great;
the gift exchange session was not bad too;
the deco was okay... the birdie balloon was quite cool;
but definitely NOT the games!! FYI, they're not gay and they're not kissing. They're just passing poker cards using their mouth... Ugghhh.. beh tahan! =='''
I don't know how crazy they went after that coz I got to go back early. But thank God there wasn't any alcohol. I suppose it was just a high sugar@glucose effect.. ==
And the next day was Winter Solstice! My 1st time not eating glutinous rice balls at home.. TT Called home and found out that Mentaro and Moth2 and Owl2 and Cheesels and Niny were having steamboat! >:( Without me!!! TT
So Lubie and I went for something other than Mamak for dinner that night. And we resolved to eat tong-yuen!!
Went to Fun TaiPei Teacafe for dinner! ^^
To save your time from scrolling down pics after pics, I have conveniently paged them with Photoscape for you. Me so nice right? :D The food was scrumplicious! RM14.50 per set without tax whatsoever. I like~! I got myself a beef soup set with rice... Lubie had his 三杯鸡... I suppose it's 3 kinds of sauce or sth... But the way they greeted customers was way too loud and shocking and sometimes, too 热情 that I couldn't take it. Hahaha...
To keep the tradition of 冬至 besides satisfying our cravings for tong-yuen later, we dropped by at 甜品哥哥... the Q was horribly long! Looks like it's not just us keeping the tradition yet too lazy to make tong-yuens at home!
Sesame glutinous rice balls rolled in peanut crumbs. Lovely.. but I don't like sesame much...
I prefer this: Tong-yuen in ginger tong-sui... RM5.50 if they are all peanut-fillings..
And look at the peanut filling! Slurrrp~!!! :9 I guess to me only peanuts can do the magic. Hahaha
In fact, we went a second time because Caryn hadn't kept the festival that day... and because of some food voucher that entitled us to a set of sesame glutinous rice balls rolled in peanut crumbs if we spent 20 bucks and above...
This time around we ordered...
Tong yuen in milk... RM7.50... Too bad it's not soya bean milk...
Durian pancakes, RM8 per set of two...
I wonder where they got the durian.. The season's over isn't it?
Some ginger milk which was supposedly good for Lubie's coughing. But it turned out real hard to swallow and we gave up after half a bowl... RM7. Don't ever order this! Hahaha it's chef recommended some more can u imagine?
And ahh finally I'm coming to the end of the blog! Gosh I think I spent like 2-3 hours on this post!
Christmas's here and is over! We had a 'Do Justly. Love Mercy' event on Christmas Eve, where the church invited the poor and the needy for dinner, games, prayer and brought the gospel out of each station. I didn't take any pictures except for this.
Hahaha... == In fact, I didn't help out much coz we're late.. And the next day was the evangelistic night with dance, drama, dinner (wow 3Ds~!) and by God's grace Pastor Anton was here to preach! He talked about breakthrough in 2011 and God's promises and prophecies on us will come to pass! Woohoo~~ I want my whole family to submit under Christ!!! Oh yes and I got to see Grace again!! And she brought us Christmas gifts all the way from India! Authentic handmade Indian costumes! Will wear them and post up all the 自恋photos when I have the time ya! Hahaha...
Oh by the way, we've got a new member in the family... Introducing~~~
Plushie~! Not me okie.
Ooh what big eyes you have~!! Oops Plushie is shy. Hahaha...
Yaoyao will take good care of the new brother.. ^^ Lubie insisted that Plushie is a male. == But it has floral patterns all over wor...!!
Lubie got me the T too.. What?! You think I am charismatic + irresistible + magnet..? Oh yes I think so too! Hahahaha maybe M stands for muka tembok also~!!
