Before I go on vacation (4 hours left), before I distinguish what I want to bring from what I need to bring, before I give my one and only plant a good long drink, before I clean the whole house, before I abandon my blog for the whole week, before I drop on your widget, argh, before my head starts spinning, here's wishing all my Muslim friends and readers around the world,

Happy Eid Mubarak! Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri!

Have a happy and blessed time...
Have a safe journey home if you are hitting the roads...

I will be back on Saturday ... cya!

We were hanging out with my cousin sister, Salina at The Apartment Cafe & Restaurant, The Curve last Saturday. Well, it's a relaxing place for us to laze in and I suppose if you've been there, you would have surely attracted by its chic yet cosy decor, too. Right?

Salina and I.

We had Cappuccino (RM9.90), Iced chocolate (RM13.90) and a jug of Tiger (RM37.00).

Andrew's pasta.

At RM17.90, don't expect the portion to be too big.

Smoked salmon plate (RM22.90). I had no idea why I ordered this; I ate the smoked salmon, cream cheese and toasted rye only. The rest - capers, shallot and parsley remain untouched!

Squid lychee and chilli salad (RM13.90).

Baked chocolate pudding with vanilla ice cream (RM12.90). I like the moist chocolate pudding with a burst of coffee in the center; not bad.

I love the ambience. But, I would definitely NOT return for the food.

Seriously, if you are just in the mood to burn cash on average food, come here!

I'm one of those ladies that like big handbags because everything I need will fit in it. Plus, mybf always put his wallet, cell phone, and his stuff in my bag! I'm so glad that my recent favorite casual handbag is big enough to shuffle all my important and not so important items. Now, I'm going to divulge what's in my handbag. Thank you Mariuca, for the Handbag Tag!

Here are the rules:

Find a safe quiet place free of significant others, nosey meme makers, priests, nuns, all things religious and men in general. (If you're a guy just reverse this process to male and tell us about your wallet, tool box, briefcase or metro sexual accessory.)

1. Dump the contents of your handbag in a pile.

2. Take a photo of your handbag and the contents.

3. Be brave and 'splain to your fellow bloggers what lurks inside the handbag.

4. Tag others who might want to embarrass themselves.

5. Answer these questions:

Describe the contents of your handbag. wallet, cell phone, a bottle of Elizabeth Arden perfume, GUESS sunglasses, lip gloss, lip balm, lipsticks, keys, mini compact mirror, hair elastics, tissue, a panty liner, a receipt from The Apartment @ The Curve and my digital camera.

What's the most important thing in your handbag? cell phone.

What's the most embarrassing thing in your handbag? crumpled used tissue.

What's the smallest thing in your handbag? hair elastics.

Is there anything illegal in your handbag? none.

Blusher, Syura, Osindak, CC and Molly, I want to see what's in your handbag! ;-)

One week from today, I will be "sunning" myself somewhere (nearby). Yeah, I must accept the fact that I'll face the gigantic ball of fire during the vacation with full of outdoor activities. 4 days 3 nights in an island and my suitcase is ready I'm completely ready! Of course I will not pack until the night before leaving! However, I have made a list of stuff that I will need to bring.

- bikini
- flip-flops
- dresses, shorts
- toiletries
- sunglasses
- sun hat
- camera and phone battery chargers

Bf: "Pack as lightly as you can, baby!"

- laptop

Bf: "and don't forget your tea tree oil and aloe gel."
Me: "Why will I need it?"
Bf: "Why? Remember you were screaming, crying, yelling and kicking me while you were playing at the beach because of your feet colonized by hundreds of hungry fire ants?" LOL

What else? Oh, the only thing that I need to get now is a sunblock that is 50 SPF (or if there's anything higher than that???) for me to apply from head to toe! For sure you don't want to see me carry an umbrella or cover my arms and my legs with long shirts at the beach, right?

It was Mooncake Festival. Instead of eating mooncake under the moon, we went to Sushi Groove for sushi-licious time! I like the atmosphere which is trendy and quite funky.

The food was pretty good even though empty tables were everywhere. The various offerings are in very creative combinations. That was what impressed me most. It's more about the GROOVE than the sushi at a reasonable price.

Here's what we ordered:












As always, a meal in the company of family is the best.

At RM19.90 per kg, I was like, WOW!!! So cheap, huh? Ended up, I had crab almost every night at one of the restaurant in SS2 for the past few weeks.

Kam Heong Crab.

But, I love Butter Crab more! Extremely yummy!!!
So, what is your favorite crab dish? Or you are not crazy for crab at all?

It's 7a.m. now and I'm craving for crab! What a crap!

Last Friday, our friend, Abeer a.k.a Lili from Egypt invited us out, as she would like us to join her for sahur (the meal consumed early in the morning by Muslims before fasting). Her nephew, Asim suggested going to Jalan Damai, Off Jalan Ampang and he brought us there. There's a restaurant serves a variety of popular Lebanese dishes called Al-Rawsha Restaurant.

#2 The moment we reached there, Ralph bumped into one of his students.

#3 Cash from Libya, Ralph and Asim.





#8 Raspberry and strawberry Barbican (non-alcohol drink originated from Middle Eastern). I love it!

#9 Asim and Lili.

#10 We ordered two plates of lahm meshwi (cubes of grilled lamb kebabs) and shish tawouq (marinated grilled chicken on skewers). I love the grilled lamb kebabs, very tender and delicious!!!

#11 Lebanese bread.

#12 Salad.

#13 Sayyadiya (delicately spiced fish served on a bed of rice).


#15 Mandy lamb.

#16 The yoghurt cucumber salad was quite bland.



#19 They were preparing grape flavored shisha.




#23 Turkish/Arabic coffee, served with dates to counter the drink's bitter taste. *sip slowly* yikes! Oh NO! I don't like it and I don't like the strong taste of cardamom!

I'll end this post with these pictures of Lili trying to make fun of Asim with Tabasco sauce. *LOL*




To all my Muslim friends and readers, Happy Fasting!
