Woke up at 7.30am the next day to prepare myself for breakfast as a supplier will be coming to pick us up at 9am. Breakfast was so so but still a full stomach. Then the rest was business so rather not talk about it. Our supplier took us to their tea estate which is 2 hours drive from Bandung. The sight of the tea garden is a sight to be behold! What a great scenery with tea plant everywhere. If you think Cameron Highland is huge then you have to see this place. The tea estate was so huge that it seems to cover up the whole mountain. Ahhhhh.... Fresh air and green lush... what a place to live. If you want a night view of Bandung city, then you should head to The Valley or The Sierra Cafe located on a hillside. These 2 places has a spectacular view. Night life in Bandung could be a scary one if you are not familliar with. We went to Braga as we heard the area has a lot of pubs. When we reach, the area was dark and quiet. Yes, a few pubs there is and you guess it, with freelancers in it. There is also plenty of karaoke joints too. A plus point for single males to visit it. We were offered a lady for Rupiah 400,000 for a nite. Thats about RM150 but we pass. Hahaha.
On the last day before our flight home, I then only went clothes shopping. I bought a Adidas cap for RM15, Polo shirt RM20 for my kids and a Zara RM24 blouse for my wife. All branded stuff leh. Who say i cannot afford it hahaha.. why go for immitations leh. The best time to go Bandung is on the weekday. Do not go on weekend as ppl from Jakarta will all rush there for the cooling weather and shopping.
So Bandung anyone????

It is a usual routine for me and my wife to return to the in-laws on every Sunday but today is not an ordinary day. It is a day when the scary Fantastic Four gets together! A day that we parents fears the most! They were fighting, screaming, jumping ... whatever they could do to piss us off!
After the finishing the cakes we bought for them, they change into their costume (naked lar) and jump into the pool. Then they start showing us their superpowers .. KaCha! HeeYa! KaBoom!...... To save us the trouble, we send in a scapegoat as the Monster (see pic). Phew... lucky I was not the chosen one! After an hour, battery running low liao.. so they have to recharge... all drank up thier Super Duper Alamak Milk! Thought it was a wrong move but no, it was a good one. After drinking they all went for a nap. Aaahhhh.... PEACE AT LAST!
Since they are asleep, we adults play mahjong straight away.. hahaha...ohya, Butt was here too. While we're playing, the ladies went to prepare dinner. Not long, the awakens of the monsters again... hai..... Anyway, dinner was a good one. Very delicious indeed. We had some beers too. Oh..forgot about my baby Oswald. He slept most of the time that's why he's "The Innocent Child". A good and tiring family get together. Do not know when they will reunite again... now thats scary.....

We heard so much about Sylvia's Ireland boyfriend and finally I got the chance to meet him yesterday. We set for a luncheon meet over at Sg Wang. I actually expected him to be a fat and mature guy as what I recall seeing him in Sylvia's handphone but I was wrong. He is actually quite fit and looks a lot younger. Anyway, we sat in the cafe enjoying the food. He was quite, maybe I wasn't friendly enough. I then ordered a bucket of beers to get things going and it did. He loves beers and mentioned to me it is their culture back in their country to have beer whenever they could. He says beers here in Malaysia are cheaper compare to theirs. I told him that it is even cheaper in Bangkok, Indonesia and Cambodia! We had a great time talking just about anything. We were there for 3 hours and we already drank 3 buckets of beers!! We parted our ways by 4pm. But that is not the end, we met up again in the night!
Called Kvin, Butt and Pao to have a drink with the Irish guy. They all agreed. Venue was then set at Thai Club in KL but sadly the Irish is just wearing shorts and slippers! We then divert to The Laundry Bar in The Curve. Drank a few more jugs of beer and went home.
This western guy can really drink man! We all already blur blur but he still wanna go on drinking and the only thing Sylvia could do is just shake her head! Hahaha. Unbelievable! What a beer day! Can't imagine if I were to go to Ireland to visit him. Sure die lar!

The drinks sold here isn't cheap but expected lar. A jug of beer costs RM58++. Ordered a few jugs of beers, had some great chats and enjoyed the music played. Ohya, the beer ladies there are kind of sweet too. Hee hee.
Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to Mommy,
Happy birthday to you!
It was my mom's birthday, and we celebrated it last Saturday. It was really a good get together for me and my family. We had a wonderful seafood dinner (forget to take picture) and then went back home for the cake cutting. We had so much laughters during that night, thanks to my son Oscar as he made all sorts of animal faces and sounds. Only then I realizes that he knows so many different kind of animals. Not bad huh for a 3 year old.
My wife and I got her a glitering dinner handbag for present. My younger sis also bought her a bag, but it much bigger and expensive than mine.. hee hee... anyway, my mom is a happy woman that night... but not for long... hee hee (read my next post)

We reach at about 8.30pm and the place was not pack. We ordered our dinner which was surprisingly not that expensive and could actually consider cheap for a place in Bangsar. Anyway, after placing the order, off we went to choose the red wine. The price range is from RM50++ to RM12000++ per bottle. Of course we did not get the 5 digit bottle lar. Hee hee. Was recomended a fruity and soft wine for starters. It was called Pinot Noir. Not strong at all but the ladies would love it. Food was not bad and we later on ordered another bottle. This time I chose Carbernet, a level higher than Pinot Noir.
Then a few more friends joined us and he chose another bottle Carbernet Sauvignon Merlot. Ah.. even stronger.. love it. We were chatting away and soon we ordered another bottle Shiraz this time which is the strongest in flavor. One of my friend got a bit high and went for a nap. Hahaha. It was a great wine night indeed.
