The kiddos' Birthday Celebration 2013

People used to ask how did we plan for both kids' Birthday to fall on the same month ~ September ? And I always replied, it was fated. We never really planned for it. In fact, their estimated due dates given by the gynea falls on the same day too which was on the 8th month 15th day (according to the Chinese Calender) which was coincidentally on the Moon Cake Festival !

Time flies and now, both had grown up and are independent to do many things on their own. I can have some peace of mind sometimes, but most of the time, they still do drive me crazy !

On YX's birthday, we went to Station One for a mini celebration. Both shared a glass of sundae and we ordered a snack platter and charcoal burger to share.

On Sunday, we drove all the way to KL to have 'Jalan-Jalan, Makan-Makan' trips with the in laws. We left home at 8am with an empty stomach. Our first stop was at Puchong Nasi Lemak House which served delicious Nasi lemak and wantan noodles. Too engrossed with my food, I forgot to take picture of the food.

They have sets which comes with a bowl of 'ling chee kang', but I find the dessert too sweet. Otherwise, this bowl of goodies are loaded with lots of ingredient.

Our 2nd stop was at Puchong Setia Walk. We wanted to redeem free Giant Milk Tea for birthday boy but we were too early and the restaurant was not open yet. Hence, we hanged around taking photos at the garden before leaving to IOI Mall to visit the other branch.

We ordered some snacks to share and managed to redeem the giant milk tea with purchased over RM30 in a single receipt. Only YX was entitled as 3 days before and 3 days after the birth date was allowed.

We were given a few smaller cups for hygiene purposes. Even it was loaded with ice, the milk tea does tasted 'kaw' and not too sweet.

The kids enjoyed digging into this bee-hive liked egg-cakes. The texture is a little similar to the Malay's bahulu cake. It was crispy at the sides and soft in the middle. So tasty that even the adults love it !

The 3rd stop was still in Puchong. It was in the Boulevard Puchong for the famous Macau's Pork Chop Buns. It was packed with people and we had to wait for a few minutes before able to get a seat. The concept was similar to the fast food chain. We need to place our order over the counter and brings the food to our table.

The Macau's famous pork chop is now in TOWN !
We ordered rice with pork chop for the kids but they do not have the appetite after having 2 meals earlier. Ended, we adults have to polish them off.

We also had the polo bun pork chop and chicken wings noodles. The buns was nothing to shout about as there were no vegies or sauces in between the buns, but the noodles was the star. It was so fragrance and the texture was very Q. No wonder people always said Hong Kong had the best wantan noodles, ever !

Since everyone were stuffed to the brim, we proceeded to the Paradigm Mall. It was our first time there.

We just window shops and SIL bought a birthday cake for the kids.

Our 4th stop was at SS15. We had the Taiwan's Bear Paw. It was another version of sandwiches which uses buns with a paw design and filled with chicken meat with some salads and sauces.

Sets of bear paw to choose from
The buns were very fluffy and soft. It was delicious at the first bite. The chicken meat were juicy and tender. As my MIL said " It was better than eating burger" !

We lazed around at the Bear paw cafe and had the cake cutting sessions. It was raining at that time and we waited for the rain to slow down before heading back home.

On the way back, we dropped by Kajang for their specialties claypot meals. It was our 5th meals that day. BIL who was working in Kajang brought us to this restaurant for their delicious spicy pork and peppery soup. Besides that, we had tofu and stir fried vegies.

It was still raining and we really enjoyed the hot peppery soup under such weather. It was such a 'shiok' feelings !

We reached home around 10 pm and both kids skipped their bath that day as both already fast asleep in the car. The makan makan trip was a success and we are so looking forward for the next makan - makan trip. When ? When ? When ?
