Food Review: Dinner at Sri Ayutthaya Damansara

We went there last Saturday night. This time, it was my turn 'belanja' my family due to my salary increment and moved to other team. Yay! Syukur alhamdulillah.

We got the table at the corner where we can see the main road. Not quite many people at that time. Mr. Fruitheart keep telling me it looks expensive. I said, it's OK dear.. once in a while only right?


A must order dish when visiting Thai restaurant is of course TOMYAM. So we ordered chicken tomyam, kailan with salted fish, black pepper beef, pandan chicken, and kerabu suhun. For drinks kiddo had iced-lemon tea as usual, I had kiwi juice and lychee coconut for Mr. Fruitheart.

We didn't have to wait long for our food. Around 10-15 minutes. All the foods look delicious. However, to our disappointment.. it doesn't taste THAT GOOD and wasn't THAT FANTASTIC.

The chicken tomyam taste funny. Even kiddo complained. It seems the chicken weren't as fresh as we wanted it to be.…

Oopss.. He Did It Again!

Right now I am seven weeks pregnant. I told few good friends, and some knew it when I update my IG few weeks back. "Already?". "Pregnant again?". Those were the feedback I received when they heard about it. Yeah, it's all Mr. Fruitheart's fault. He did it again!

Kiddo and Mr. Fruitheart wish for a boy, and if it's indeed a boy we already have a name for him. I don't mind a boy or girl, as long as he/she is healthy. The baby is due to meet the world end Nov or early Dec. Lucky this time I tracked down my period. If not I wouldn't know when was my last day of period. Well, doctor surely will asked about it, and I will look at my husband hoping he knew the excat date.

Yeah, forgetful me.

This is the time where I entered my first trimester. Nausea, dizzy, bloated are my good and close friend now. We are inseparable. After I ate, I can see my round belly. I called it 'food bump'. No baby bump yet, the baby is still small. My first check up would…

Just The Three of Us - Day 6

Finally it's Friday. I should've write my snippet, but I feel it's going to be a long entry today.

The other night, baby girl woke up around 1.40am crying. I do not know why. I gave her milk and she still crying. So I took Mr. Fruitheart's stinky shirt and put on her body. She stopped crying. Awwww.. she missed her daddy. And she only sleep back around 2.30am.

I am so tired these few days. :( Bloated almost all the time. Too much gas inside my tummy? Argh! So discomforting. And it comes with this burping-so-often-I-can't-take-it-anymore.

Last night was the worse. I had this nausea, bloated, dizzy and cramped all at once. Gosh! I do not know what move I make before that. I didn't carry heavy stuff, except for kiddo's school bag. Argh! Thank God, kiddo is well behaved and he hadn't get into serious illness what so ever. I just can't catch up with baby girl since this is the month where she's actively learning to walk and stand. So kiddo had to take c…

Favourite Quote of The Week #15

“There comes a time when a woman needs to stop thinking about her looks and focus her energies on raising her children. This time comes at the moment of conception. A child needs a role model, not a supermodel.” ~~ Astrid Alauda, on the “hot mom” trend

Concern and Worried About My Children

A video about a boy being bullied by his classmates has gone viral in social media since yesterday. Not sure when the video was taken.

The boy who being bullied is said to be the class monitor and I am not sure what was the issue. He didn't fight back when others attacked him! They were only 15 years old. :( I know there are a lot video about school kids involved in bullying. This is not the first time. And I am really afraid and worried about the safety of my children. I am afraid to let them go to school. Who to blame? The parents? Teachers? Their friends? Gangster film? Government?

You can watch the video on you tube. And here is an entry from my blogger friend: Gangster Sekolah Belasah Ketua Tingkatan. It seems the case was in March and it has been solved.

The bully also has a blog and I managed to checked it out. A lot of hateful and anger comments there. I wonder how the boy's parents feel about it. I guess they assume their kids are well behave but they actually not. Or ma…

Just The Three Of Us - Day 2

Another 2 hours to go back home. That was fast. Hehe. Today was the first day the three of us stay together without Mr. Fruitheart. No major incidents so far and I hope there will not be ANY.

Thank God, baby girl slept well last night. I had to off the dimmer as well to make her sleep. Kiddo had a cut on his finger earlier in the evening. His iPad cover was broken. Haih.

This morning on my way to send baby girl to her baby sitter's house, she cried out loud half way. Grrr! Makes me stressed. When she cried, her big brother also cried. Makes me even stressed. After I picked her up, she doesn't even smile at me. She cried and don't want to wave me goodbye. Merajuk lah tu. Haih.

All I can say to myself is be strong. Forget about your nausea, dizziness and bloated. My babies are more important and they need me. I hope I will be OK until Mr. Fruitheart comes back.

P/S: Do not fall sick dear self.

Secret

Few days back I found something that makes my heart goes "THUMP". I accidentally opened the bag, wanted to look for something else, but I found something else instead.

I told myself, it could be someone's else stuff. But, then I remembered long time ago.. it's in his pocket and said it was his friend's. And after that he admit it was his. Do you know how that makes me feel?

I asked when we were about to leave the house that night. "I found ciggie box in your bag." At that moment, his face was shocked. And he started to check his bag. "Nope, nothing."
I asked when. He said just recently only.
I asked, stress?
He said yes, when stressed.
It stopped there.

Before I left the airport, I told him.. don't smoke. I don't know why I said that. I don't know if he will or will not smoke. What if he did? What am I going to do or say? It's already happened anyway.

Friday Snippet #4

It's been a while since my last update during Friday Snippet. Busy with real life.

I do not know if I can update my blog regularly during my pregnancy this time. I do not have time to update on my last pregnancy. With all those vomiting, nausea, fatigue and so on.. I just want to lay down.

Mr. Fruitheart is going to Norway (AGAIN) for a week. His flright is on Saturday night and will only be back on Tuesday the week after. And I am left here in this condition with kiddo and baby girl. At 10 months she's hyper, active and she wants someone to play with her. She crawled, picked everything on the floor and put in her mouth, she wants everything that we adult eat, and she sleeps at 10-10.30pm. She can walk few steps. I really hope I am very patience taking care of her when his beloved daddy is not around. And I hope both are well, no fever, sick what so ever.

I had my first vomit today. Nausea, dizzy and headache since morning. All were still there when I was doing this entry. My tum…

TAWC - Instant Ingredients Again

Last weekend, my cooking plan was supposed to be on Saturday. However, we had slight changes due to the 'good news' of me being pregnant and we decided to buy baby girl's new car seat. That's the intro. Now let's continue with the cooking which I did on Sunday.

I bought lots of instant ingredients this time. Kurma, Sweet and Sour, Sambal Tumis, Veggies, Rendang, Asam Pedas, Kari Ikan and I. All from Maggie. But I didn't used all.

Last weekend dishes:
4 packs of chicken kurma
4 packs of chicken soup
2 packs of asam pedas (fish)
2 packs of beef rendang
3 packs of vegetables (as usual, carrots with french beans)

I feel a bit disappointed with my cooking this time. It didn't turn out well. :( Although the steps and measurement were there, I still failed. I do not how to budget it. How am I supposed to know how many pieces of chicken is 500gm?? Blerghh.


The asam pedas so sour and spicy.


The chicken kurma doesn't taste like kurma even though the color and texture was t…

New Month, New Chapter.. New Beginning

Welcome April 2013! Has anyone been April Fooled yet? Hehe. No? Yes? Nothing here too. Maybe as we are getting wiser, we feel that this is something we see as childish. I don't know.

There's a lot of things happened to me. After one another. Good stuff of course.

First, I moved to a new department. From IT Service Desk to SAP. I have been working for almost three years with SD. You know when you have to move, then it is time to move. You get bored and no fun anymore when you have been doing the same tasks and routine everyday. I hope I am very much happy with the new environment, people and tasks given. I am so thankful about this moving when the management decided to give me salary increment, Alhamdullilah.

The next thing, ehem.. ehem.. although Mr. Fruitheart told me to wait, but I want to tell anyway. There will be an addition to the family members. I know both Mr. Fruitheart and kiddo wants it, me on the other hand.. if there is, there will be. And, Alhamdulillah God grant th…
