Showing posts from December, 2012


While everyone is talking about Maya calendar, doomsday, end of the world… I guess I was busy making Ta ng Yuen ( 汤 圆 ) for prayer. Getting permission to leave office early to be home to make the dough, add in colour to make the Tang Yuen ( 汤 圆 ) more colorful. Last year, did not get to do anything all due to the customs restriction of someone passing. Anyway, today… December 21, 2012 is the Winter Solstice, Chinese called it Dongzhi. A day that what our elderly said it’s greater that Chinese New Year. Why would they said that… been trying to google it, some how just couldn’t find the missing piece.   Happy Dongzhi everyone! 冬至 快 樂 !

The Eighty Eight Restaurant

Whenever there’s a new restaurant or café in town, I will either patronize it with hubby, family or friends. But, lately I have found a bunch a new ‘friends’ aka my managers. They are bunch of food lovers, and they know I am good in looking for food, thus, they have never have any doubt on me for recommending them any place for lunch or dinner. The Eighty Eight Restaurant is a new place that I brought them to, a very ordinary place with no attractive signboard (except the bright orange sign) and also parking is a constraint to the customers. But food wise, it’s definitely recommended, and price wise is reasonable too. I remember very clearly that whenever we drove passed this place, I was telling hubby that we should step foot in here, and all because of the outlook of the restaurant, it did not give him any confident that this place will be something special. It was a farewell dinner that we host for our dear colleague. And, it was also a dinner with full of laughter.
