Wedding of the year~

Wow this really seems to be the wedding season~ What with Shaun and Michelle's wedding. Last Saturday was Pei Lynn and Voon's wedding~ and it was another wonderful wedding cos the company was great! Sort of like a mini IMU and Ipoh GH gathering.. I din have a camera with me so all these pics were stolen from Facebook.

It started off pretty bad with me and JH with Shin Chee and Chang Haur and Cecilia being caught in a jam on the way to Concorde hotel~ Saturday also jam.. these KL ppl are crazy.

But things went great from then on. We were greeted at the reception by Kelvin's very handsome and Eurasian looking younger brother~ as the evening progressed i discovered that Kelvin has 3 other brothers and the younger one was even better looking! Swoons~ so unfair. As quoted from Mee Mei 'God is so unfair! Four good looking sons in the same family!' Unfortunately i did not take any pics of them as 1)That would be rude cos i dun noe them 2)I'm here for Pei Lynn and Kelvin 3)Jin Hui was there 4)Too many wonderful freinds to catch up with.

Look at this stunning picture!! My God Yao Pei takes such great photos~ It helps that the couple are lookers too~

We were seated at lucky number 8.
The whole IMU gang from UK to JB to Lahad Datu was there.

They even had Kok Lim and Way Tern performing the 'Horse Race' just like old times.

They have ridiculous cold plate presentations in JB but this one really takes the cake~

Very Cheena restaurant~ but great food though

Way Tern and Ken Ang reunited!

All the way from UK and basking in Malaysian goodness~

Yam Seng~from which part of the family did they get their good looks?

Every chance was a photo taking oportunity~

The quality of photos of different cameras are really different , no?


Same scene, different camera! Makes me want to invest in a good camera~

Won Chung!


For those of you who don't know Chia Yee (second from left) is Kok Lim's bride to be.

Everyone stayed back after the wedding to take photos~
It wasnt too draggy, it wasn't boring at all~ its was quite frankly one of the most enjoyable weddings ever. And we all crashed their wedding suite (no la invited to their hotel room) for personal viewing of the wedding photos and the beautifully made up bride in her unglam nighie~ haha should have taken pics.

All in all a wonderful wedding between two wonderful people.

Wisdom tooth~

My tooth is finally out woots woots after a few unfortunate delays~ Painless procedure but of course all that tugging was scarey.. din enjoy the feeling of my mouth being torn sideways~ Luckily the dentist was really nice and experienced.. so almost painless and took around 30 mins. The pain only starts after an hour.. which is now.. took ponstan already but am getting JH to bring me celebrax and cloxa and papase~

There are perks of being a doctor.. faster in getting my medicine and my appointment is tru sms with the dentist~

Hopefully not so painful tomorrow~

With the amount of calls i had last month it's no wonder i had loads of cash to spare and not much time to spend it~so whenever i have the opportunity then its the time to spend spend spend~ phew ~

This is my loot over a month i think~

Bought this MNG sling bag to replace my old really puny sling bag that i use for work cos the old one could not handle all my clutter~


It's black so i wont know when it gets dirty~

Also just discovered why everyone online is raving about Daiso~ though its more expensive here than in Spore RM5 compared to S$2, its still a cheap place to get cute unconventional items.. but i guess a lot of the things are probably not worth RM5. Its just the novelty of the stuff and the urge to spend cos you know you can afford everything there..

Bought an ice cream mould to make icicles (too bad my freezer is not cold enough to freeze anything-buy ice cream also can melt) and a soft (not so soft) roller to massage myself/improve circulation/burn fats(no scientific proof).

Daiso sukides~

On a separate Daiso trip at the Curve~ bought a Bento box (double tiered and comes with a bento binder-sort of like a book binder..) awesome stackable eye shadow tips, aroma thing in a bottle and just to round up the number a so far useless storage box.

The eye shadow tips are awesome~ no more using the same tips for different colours but one grouse is its not as smooth to cap and recap as it looks~ anyways Xiaxue loves it and it wasn't hard to find either. Totally could not find it at the Malacca Daiso.

The loot all together~

Ka ka all bought in weekend~

And i've acumulated some gifts too~ so happy~

Birthday gift from Yung Yung~ for my skin to withstand the lack of sleep and excess of stress

From my brothers~ cos they know i love all things pink~

Awesome Thai alphabet T-shirt from JH's mom~very unique

Cute elephant pouch (which i keep all my loose change) and key chain~

Material things do so make me happy~ But nothing beats family and friends and boyfriend of course~

Chocolate truffles taste like this?

So one fine day after browsing through the Valentine's issue of 8 days i chanced upon this page and i thought it would be a good idea to surprise my beloved with a wonderful box of chocolate truffles.

Looks easy enough.

Unfortunately i did not have enough time to actually but the ingredients so i had to forgo the surprise element of this gift and forced my said beloved to buy all the ingredients right down to the exact brand of each item as dictated by the manual.

As i was particularly excited at actually making chocolate truffles as i have never actually eaten them before i took step by step photographic evidence of the procedure.

1. Lindt 85%cocoa dark chocolate (could not find so JH bought 50% or something)
2.President whipping cream
3. Hershey's cocoa powder

So simple right only 3 ingredients~

Step one: Break the 100g of chocolate into a bowl.

It will roughly look like this.

Step 2: Heat 100ml of cream in a saucepan.

Step 3: When the cream boils , pour into the bowl with the chocolate chunks. Can add some liquer at this point but unfortunately i had none.

Step four:Stir mixture till smooth.Then refrigerate 2-3 hours to set

Ha ha quite de smooth right?

Step five: Using a teaspoon scoop out bite-sized balls and then use ur hands to shape into smoother spheres.

Step 6: Dust the chocolate balls in a plate of sifted cocoa powder and there u have it lovely chocolate truffles.

Put them in pretty cupcake paper moulds.

I also tried some with chocolate sprinkles and hundereds and thousands.

The ones without cocoa powder nicer lor.

But my story does not end here. After an hour of 'cooking' i concluded i enjoy the process more than the end result. My God the chocolate truffles taste funny! Are they supposed to taste like that? The horrible cocoa powder left a horrible bitter aftertaste. Imagine if i had used 85% cocoa dark chocolate!! My whole chocolate balls would be so damn bitter!! How can people eat this stuff?

So in conclusion dun try this at home. Unless u really like your food and deserts BITTER~

And its all your fault.
