Of Awful Card and Grand Imperial

17 Nov

It’s 16th November (as I started out typing) and 16th November is a big day in the Choong’s.

It’s Mommy and Fei’s birthday. Yes, both of them share the same birthday. ๐Ÿ™‚

When the clock struck twelve, Fei presented Mom with a handmade card by Fei and I, signed by the rest of the family.

#2. The inside

ย Reason I’m posting it up here is not because I’m super proud of it.

But I think it’s super funny cause Fei’s artwork is like a kindergarden student’s. ๐Ÿ˜‰

She did the front cover, while I tried my best to makeย the insideย look more mature.

Really cannot do anything. Too colourful. ๐Ÿ™‚

Then just a moment ago, we went for dinner at the Grand Imperial (yes, again).

This time, we ordered the dishes ourselves, not the set kind of meal.

We had Peking Duck…

super crunchy but not too oily duck skin. Super delicious!

Then we had some tofu thingy with vegetables.

I think it doesn’t look that good here but it’s seriously because the photographer (Ehem, me) suck.

The tofu was really good and that vege is my favourite vege! I think it’s called siu pak choy, small white vege. ๐Ÿ™‚

After that it was the lamb!

#6. Super yummy lamb!!!

I didn’t know they actually serve like this as in individual portions in Chinese restaurants and from the way they presented that heavenly tasty meat, it sure feels like I was at a Western restaurant.

And the lamb, they actually used erm… some kind of leaf as the spice. It’s called something like fat fong kam yip in Cantonese. Any idea what’s the English term for it?

Anyway, my point is it was so special and it tasted really really good!

The best part is each plate only cost RM7 something cause it was on promotion! ๐Ÿ™‚

Okay, enough of lamb. We had eels too!!!

The last time we had this prawn and broccoli thing and we liked it very much so here it is again!

Super big fat juicy prawn. ๐Ÿ™‚

After that they came with some noodles that was fried with the earlier Peking duck!

You eat the skin first with the sauce and popiah skin-like thing then you eat the meat with the noodles later. ๐Ÿ™‚

Okay, I know this may be a very common thing but it’s my first time!!!

Noodles were so-so only probably because I was a bit full already. ๐Ÿ™‚

And that’s all we ordered so no more dish lah, then the waitress did this to our napkins.

My dad say maybe they’re preparing us for desserts but we didn’t order any so we were hoping for free desserts. ๐Ÿ™‚

They were all minding their own businesses, so Fei and I went to the toilet. Hehe!

Toilet breaks are essential for girls!

There are more but I guess I should just keep it to myself. Haha!

When we went back, there were really free desserts and it happens to be one of my favourite desserts too!!!

#13. Tau Foo Fah! ๐Ÿ™‚

The bill then came and it was about RM400 which I think is quite worth it compared to the last time we went there.

No, obviously we didn’t get richer now.

It’s the big day of Mom and Fei after all. ๐Ÿ™‚

Divide the amount, it’s only RM200 per person actually. Haha.

Best part is, I didn’t even contribute a cent or any form of present besides the awful looking card to make their birthdays better. Sigh.

It’s the end of semester which also means my PTPTN habis already.

Another semester k darlings, and I promise I’ll get something really meaningful for you guys. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Happy belated birthday again Mommy and Fei!
