端午节


祝大家端午节快乐
每个人都会只想到 粽子!
a bit of history..........


公元前278年农历五月初五,楚国大夫、爱国诗人屈原听到秦军攻破楚国都城的消息后,悲愤交加,心如刀割,毅然写下绝笔作《怀沙》,抱石投入汨罗江,以身殉国。沿江百姓纷纷引舟竞渡前去打捞,沿水招魂,并将粽子投入江中,以免鱼虾蚕食他的身体。这一习俗绵延至今,已有两千多年


但是你们又知不知道还有另外一个传说..........


在中国的历史传统认为五月五日是恶月恶日,按照《易经》等典籍记载,阴恶从五而生,五月五日恰恰是阳气运行到端点的端阳之时,这种日子恶疠病疫多泛滥,因此,这一天人们便插艾叶、挂菖蒲、喝雄黄酒、配香囊等,以驱邪辟邪、保健健身。

Renewed Sofa..I like the colour - Dark Olive Green


I got some idea..if not too tiring..maybe this weekend we paint the entire wall of TV cabinet with our olive green (dark one, not light), i think it sure match with the walnut colour TV cabinet, console table, wall shelf..what a lovely home.

幸福万岁 LOVE MATTERS

Finall on saturday, was watching this movie before
going out for dinner.
well.....its definately an 18+ movie.
a lot of laughs, and Jack Neo did it again.

a true depiction of the normal family man's life.
I liked it.


and again....for dinner....LC was craving for
CRABS !
so i told her that theres a place in kepong .
i think i was there a few years back.
they sell crabs, with 101 different ways
to choose from.
so, LC was very excited.
but.......as we drove all the way there,
we couldn't find the place.
or maybe i just forgotten the way.......
anyhow, we ended up going back to KING CRAB 蟹皇
and order the same 奶油蟹
but this time we had fried udong as well.
its nice, not too peppery, not too salty, just nice
not like some others that we have tried.

Bubba Gump

Well.......always walk by this restaurant and finally, me and LC
wne tin on sunday for lunch
we ordered a slamon.
comes in a pan like dish, with 2 big pieces of salmon,
on a bed of rice, and plenty of vegies.
taste, is good, with capers, which make it slightly soury.
just nice with a cold beer on a very hot day !
we ordered a side dish or brocolli.
nicely done as it was cook steamed sholw and not in pieces.
we having snd thought about trying the shrimp,
cause it looks like they are all very big portions.
