DIY: Budget Retro Night Themed Decorations

Image
For this year's Mother's Day, YPF decided that we throw a Retro-themed party for the dear mummies in church. Since we had our very own Sister's and Brother's Night with Princess (link) and Pirates-themed (link) respectively, we are up for the 'challenge'.

We did some brief preparation a week before but most of the stuffs were done on the day itself.


Reusing curtains.


Decorating walls. Previously we had cut those round circles together.


Ruh, who looked like some construction worker. (she was standing on the ladder)


The decorated wall. Printed posters, round colorful circles all pasted on the huge wall.



Spot the TV that one of my friend made out of cardbox!


Purposely bought this disco ball. This is a lil tricky though. We had to "spin" the ball manually to get the effect. What to do. Budget ma.


Working hard, setting up the lights and the final decors.


Final outcome.
The details that you cannot see properly:  Vintage Coke Cans. (I bought them from a Coke collect…

Staff Problems @ Nando's, Taman Maluri Jusco Aeon

Image
I went to Nando's at Taman Maluri Jusco AEON outlet last Sunday with my family. It's been quite awhile since I visited Nando's. A very long while. :P





After my visit there, I wrote this lengthy note and posted on Nando's Malaysia's Facebook Wall.

Hi Nando's Malaysia. I was at your Jusco AEON Taman Maluri outlet today with my family, having lunch there. Upon arriving to the entrance of the restaurant, we saw the sign "STOP, please allow us to seat you". I scanned through the restaurant, no staff was seen except one who was serving another table. Ignoring the sign because we didn't want to wait, we moved on and find our own table. We were seated by ourselves at 11.50 am.
We observed the restaurant. We saw one staff (not the one serving earlier) walking around, in and out of the kitchen area but wasn't serving anyone. At about 12.00pm, she walked out of the restaurant. The poor staff who was working alone was not only taking orders but also servin…

Kedai Makanan Yut Kee Restaurant

Image
Quick post :)
You would have heard about the famous Roti Babi that is sold at Yut Kee Restaurant along Jalan Dang Wangi. Heck, I've always thought that Dang Wangi is such an oxymoron. Dang (Dung) Wangi. Berak Wangi. LUL. Sorry, I just had to.

Anyway, I think the last time I came here was April 2008! HOMYGOSH. That's like more than 4 years ago -_-;;

There was a queue when my family and I reached there. One couple came from Johor to makan and an Indian uncle was telling them what is nice here. (I overheard their conversation, no I did not eavesdrop :P) And this sign was placed there:


Uh oh, I guess there must have been a few cases of snatch thieves. Urgh. ANYWAY, didn't have to wait very long, *phew. Here's some food pictures! We didn't order Roti Babi but ate chops instead.



Roast Pork for RM 14.00 (RM 7.00 per slice)

Pork Chop for RM 10.00

Chicken Chop for RM8.50

Lamb Chop for RM 13.50

Beef Chop for RM 13
Omnomnom :) Hungry yet? :P

The Long Weekend

Image
It's been a long weekend for many people. It's the Raya holidays. Well, I've been having holidays close to 2 months now and I'm enjoying every bit of it. But inside, I'm feeling solemn over the little holidays I have left. Yes, I'm counting down :( Here's what I did over the weekend

I bid goodbye to my good friend who had left for The United States of America and met up with a bunch of other friends that I haven't met for a long time last Friday.

The Fabulous Five. Or so I say :P
Self-timer group shot. 
Macaroons. 


It was my first time at Levain. Tried out their pizza.

On Saturday, went to Sungai Gabai for the second time this year with family and friends :D

I Won the PappaRich's Pappa Month Contest

Image
How to say? I've been anxious the whole month ever since I submitted my entry to the PappaRich's contest after the contest officially ended in July 15th. Contest mechanics was to spend at least RM20 in a single receipt to be eligible to enter the contest, then answer a slogan. I forgot what I submitted for the slogan and what was the question but it was about happiest moment with your father, something like that *smacks head* One of the T&C is that the contest was only open to Malaysians under 21 years old. Unlike some adults who may submit the entry and use their children's name and details, I brainstormed my own slogan and asked my mum to drop it off at the nearest PappaRich :D


The social media team from PappaRich said that results would be published on The Star and Sin Chew newspaper, and also on their website on 11th August. ANXIOUS! Everyday I was doing a mental countdown. Why so excited, you ask. Because there was 30 iPads up for grabs, TWO for each winner. Gasp.…
