Celebrate & Enjoy Motherhood

hope all Mothers out there enjoyed your Special Day with your Loved Ones :)
mine was spent doing housework and nagging kids @ some moments during the day..hehe. bought myself a Durian Fudge Cake and Haagen Dazs Coffee ice~cream to spoil myself ;) then went to visit my Mum and had her Teh Tarik :D

later in the afternoon, Aysha gave me a what i call a Mother~Daughter Love Letter :) she wrote words that touched my Heart and it brought me to tears. things like this makes one feel truly appreciated. Muesa wrote me a short note with loving words :)

Thank You Aysha for the cutest gift! Regina made this adorable purse with my favourite Matroyshka doll fabric. i *heart* them all! and lipstick and lip balm i got from Etude House ;) gift for myself!

just adore the paper bag :D

i love these kind of things...
got these from Daiso ;)

Dinner With Friends
Mother's Day dinner with girlfriends @ Tambuah Mas :)
we went on a Friday night and a kids free night was fun.

Indonesian Restaurant serving delicious padang dishes...
yellow rice is the best!

their signature dish, Tahu Telor

my all time fave, Beef Dendeng with Sambal

Chendol,[pronounced 'chen-doll'] or es cendol is a traditional dessert originating from Java, Indonesia, but is also popular in Malaysia, Singapore, and Southern Thailand (where it is called lorkchorng singapore ลอดข่องสิงคโปร์). The dessert's basic ingredients consist of shaved ice, coconut milk, starch noodles with green food coloring (usually sourced from the pandan leaf), and palm sugar. Red beans, glutinous rice, grass jelly, and creamed corn are optional additions. Cendol has become a quintessential part of cuisine among the multi-racial population in Southeast Asia and is often sold by vendors at roadsides, hawker centres and food courts.

Georgina had this ice Chendol and Thanks for dinner! :D
