Gathering on 19 - 11 - 2011

YX posing at the KTM station with his weird look !
On the 19 Nov, I brought YX to attend a mini gathering with 3 of my ex-classmates. At first we planned to held it somewhere in the city but Mummy-J suggested to have it at her home instead. That was indeed a great idea because the kids can roamed freely at home without us worrying of their safety. I took half day off and took a train at around 1 pm. By the time we reached Mummy-J's house, it was already nearly 3pm.

Mummy-J prepared mi hun kuey for our lunch and I bought Mamak rojak and Seremban siew pau for our afternoon tea. Another friend brought home made coconut jelly for dessert. Literally, we just ate and chat non-stop once we met until we departed.

Mi hun kuey and mamak rojak
The mi hun kuey was delicious. Mummy-J shared her secret recipe with me. She uses fried anchovies powder to add into the soup. She pre fried those anchovies and blend them into powder form. The soup was so tasty and she was very generous in the ingredient too.

The mi hun kuey was flooded with mushrooms, fishcakes, fishballs, crab claws, meat and etc, and that makes the soup even tastier. Even YX had a 2nd helping !

After the kids finishes their meal, they started to turn Mummy-J's house upside down. Toys were everywhere the house. Laughter and crying makes the house even merrier. While the kids were playing, we adults chit chat while continue eating.

Home-cooked steamed herbal salted chicken.
Soon, it was around 6.30pm and Mummy-J started to cook dinner for us. She prepared steamed herbal salted chicken and turnip soup to goes with rice. Despite we were still full after the late lunch and afternoon tea, we still managed to gobbled down the chicken and soup.

The 3 kids
Before we left, we took photos with the kids. I was glad that YX did not show his weird posed which he normally did, but smile naturally.


Mummy-J's hubby sent us to the KTM station at around 8pm. Once we were inside the train, YX knocked off immediately. He was so tired that he slept all the way back. Somewhere near Seremban station, I woke him up as I don't have the strength to carry him and that makes him a little annoyed.

Thank you to Mummy-J for the space and delicious food, SP for the Christmas gift to my kids and SL for the delicious home-made coconut jelly. Hope to have such gathering again, soon.

  14. It's def nicer to hv gatherings at home. The kids can be confined in a room/space to play toys/games while the adults can chat n eat comfortably w/o worrying abt the kids roaming ard in a public plc.
