They are cute, isn't it?

Dec 31, 2007

We went to an aquarium shop in Malim this afternoon. I always love to see this Bubble Eye Goldfish. They looks chubby & cute. Since I brought my camera along, I snapped a few pictures for them.

After googling about Bubble Eye Goldfish, I found some interesting info. Do check it out.

Eye Cream from Estee Lauder

Dec 29, 2007

I noticed that my eyes are getting dryer & my eye lids are becoming yellowish nowadays. Maybe it was due to ageing & also the frequent usage of concealer. I can't live without concealer because of the dark circles around my eyes.
I heard from one of the ex-beautician said that Estee Lauder produces the best eyes cream. I am tempted to try it as my current brand, The Face Shop & Boots didn't prove to be an effective one for me. So I asked Hubby B to accompany me to Jusco to check out the Estee Lauder eye cream. The Customer Service (my friend as well) recommended Cyber White Radiant Eye Cream SPF 15 to me. She does not encourage me to use a too oily product as it will worsen my oil seeds around my eyes area. She also advised me to stop using concealer at this time & try to apply eyes mask once a week. I'm convinced with her & purchased the eye cream & also a concealer from her. Both products cost me RM 260 (RM 175 + RM 85). Of course this promotion comes with eye shadows, lipstick & a bottle of Pleasure perfume. Quite worth actually. My way of applying eye cream is incorrect. I rub it around the eyes area. How do you gals apply your eye cream? Mind to share it with me please?

Well, my friend told me that the way I applied my eye cream may cause damage to the very sensitive skin that surrounds the eyes. The correct way to apply eye cream is by dotting small amounts of the cream around our eyes. Using a circular motion & our ring finger, pat slowly starting from the inside of our eyelid. As we pat using a circular motion, the cream will be absorbed by the skin until it is no longer visible.

So ladies out there, be it you are in your 20's, 30's, 40's or 50's, let starts taking care of your eyes now!

Dental Scaling

Dec 28, 2007

We both went for dental scaling this afternoon. Though I don't like this procedure, I still make an effort to visit my dentist once a year. Why I dislike this procedure? I hate the splashing of the plaque & calculus on to my face. Why can't the dentist use a special mask on the patient to avoid this uneasy feeling please? Maybe I should propose to the dentist & who knows? I might earn a huge sum of money from there. Haha........Day dreaming again!

Flower Shots

Dec 26, 2007

I played with my camera again this afternoon. I was thinking that this is the right time to take down the garden pictures as the rain has just stopped. As expected, the flowers really looked so beautiful.

Our Pets

Hubby did an agility training for Dino this afternoon. Since I have nothing much to do, I went down to take a few shots for them.

Dino wasn't that confidence when doing all those jumping. He needed few times of coaching & guidance from Hubby B. Perhaps he needs more practice.

Kylie wasn't participating in this training. She took her own sweet times relaxing at her own place. Well Flame is the most arrogant dog. It is so difficult to take her shot. She just refused to look at the camera. Oh... I gave up on her!

I also tried to take down a few shots for the Koi using difference camera features. Certain shots are nice & beautiful. What do you think?

How Did You Celebrate Your Christmas?

Dec 25, 2007

On Christmas Day, both of us went for Roasted Turkey hunting. Most of the roasted turkeys have already been booked (EQ Hotel, Euro Deli & Jusco) except for Renaissance Hotel. It costs about RM 220 for a roasted turkey with stuffings. Then we wanted to buy a raw turkey back but the plan was cancelled. It was partly due to the size of the turkey (5-6kg) & also the preparation times needed. So we have no turkey dinner for this Christmas.

We decided to cook the dinner for tonight. So we went to Jusco to grab for the ingredients. BB cooked the Bacon, Salmon & Asparagus Bundles while I prepared a Baked Corn Tortilla Chips. Aunty grilled the sausages & of course yummy dessert, Durian!

Baked Corn Tortilla Chips. It was nice when it was freshly baked out from the oven. Simple recipe. You need a pack of Corn Chips, Tomatoes, Parmesan Cheese, Salt & Cayenne pepper. Spread the corn chips out on a single layer on the pan & sprinkles the rest of the ingredients over the chips. Bake 10-12 mins or until Parmesan is slightly browned.

Bacon, Salmon & Asparagus Bundles by Hubby B. This was the special request from me.

Our Christmas dinner. It was a yummy dinner though it was without turkey.

We bought this wine from Tesco. I don't like the packing but surprisingly , the wine is great. BB likes it as it was produced with different types of grapes.

Power of woman! Aunty opened up the durians for us. BB didn't eat it because he said the durian will contradict the taste of the wine. Fussy fella.

Tam Chiak (greedy) Beauty Queen. Flame loves durian. Weird dog!

Dong Zhi 冬至

Dec 22, 2007

Today we celebrated Dong Zhi Festival. It is also known as Winter Solstice festival, which is the second most important festival of the Chinese calendar. Dong Zhi is considered the thanksgiving of the Chinese calendar.

It is the last festival of the year, being celebrated on the 22nd of eleventh moon (December). Coinciding with the winter solstice, it is a time for the entire family to get together to celebrate the past good year. Glutinous rice balls, Tang Yuan are cooked and eaten to signify unity and harmony within the family. Eating Tang Yuan is symbolic of family unity & family prosperity too.

The dough are in white & pink color. The pink means "Gold" & the white means "Silver". In short, it means that you are complete with the fortune after taking these glutinous rice balls.
Ee Ting helped mum to roll the Dang Yuan.KPC was there to help out as well. Initially he refused to touch the dough due to its stickiness.
With his mum encouragement , he felt the fun with this new "toy". Kai Jun: Mum, you see. I can make Dang Yuan already.
Mum was happily making the Dang Yuan. She said that the night was like Chinese New Year's Eve. What has he produced?
Aiks.... what is that?Kai Jun: Aiyo... let me do it again.
He told me that he wanted to make a car. Braised duck prepared by my mother. Yummy Yummy.
Fried Pork Spring Rolls from my grandmother & fried prawns by my mum. Claypot Sea Cucumbers, mushrooms & pork ribs.
Devil Chickens from my Aunt. She is always so thoughtful in preparing food for us during the prayer. Persimmon.
"Pao" from my aunt.He is the happiest one. Knowing that I was taking his picture, he returned me with this cheeky smile.
