random photos and updates.

on 29th dec, it was a colleague's birthday and her teammate bought her a cake and some candles to decorate a big '33' on it. can you see the 33? =)

cake was nice! it was from Chocolat World.

ok. that's 50kg worth of old magazines, some old chambering work i used to do and some newspaper. i lugged the whole damn trolley-full of crap to the recycling centre in Midvalley for some money

only to be paid RM12.24 in total.

hence, my new year reso NOT to buy magazines.

christmas, christmas!!
i am really so mean. not intentionally, you know! when the office was quiet before christmas, i realised that i hadn't made anything nice for the important friends in my life. so i panicked. i bought a label maker (for laughs!) and then decided to make this xmas card for YB as a surprise.

my colleague was amused when i showed him the final thing - a paper card made from scrap paper. wahahaha ... i am such a crappy girlfriend, i know, but hey, it's the thought that counts!

and the one thing i really enjoy the most, is catching him by surprise. so yeah, the handmade paper card and label maker was unexpected. *laughs and syiok sendiri*
i lurve these cookie boxes! sadly, i had to throw them away. i love the dots, i love the cursive writing, i love the colours ... and i love how my friend's wife knows what to buy for me!

which is, naturally, ANYTHING chocolatey.

and the cookies were delish! there were only 2 individually wrapped pieces in each box!
i don't know what lollipops these are. they look rather marhsmallow-y. mae gave YB and i one each when we met up with them for drinks before christmas! we haven't eaten them yet, as they look too cute to be consumed.

well, i'm always eating at the same ol' places i enjoy. Decanter at Jalan Setiabakti is one of them. if you go to the original one, also in Bukit Damansara, it does NOT serve banana peach crumble!

had lunch at Decanter, Bukit Damansara with Dot sometime, and food was kept to a minimal. do order the beef stew (and order extra soft rolls to go with it!) if you love your meat, or if you're like plain and boring me, the aglio oglio is great, too. i'm not sure whether we ordered the banana peach crumble ... zomg, i really can't remember!

dot, did we??

somehow, i think we did!

i rushed over to my beauty spa to sign up for its facial package (good deal with a 55% discount!) before the year ended. i did hesitate, because it's a hefty sum to pay as i couldn't pay by instalments. sigh.

took this pic of the fat cat on my consultant's monitor while i waited for her to process my payment (and secretly worried that my credit card transaction wouldn't go through!).

do these damn fat cats actually work?? i have one sitting on my tv console, facing my main door. *waves*

the occasional binge at DELIcious is a must.

once again, i found pictures on my camera as i was clearing it up. (i still have pics taken in 2008 in my memory card, that's how lazy i am!)

the caesar salad with grilled chicken was superb. i can't remember when we had this, but it must have been months ago!

anyway, on sunday, to mark the beginning of the new year (to be filled with uncertainties and more adventures to come), we decided to have dinner there. the objective was to order something we've never had before!
honestly, sometimes i don't know what to order when i visit a regular place. we tried the trio of bruschetta, which was very nice indeed. (i am running out of words to describe my palate's agreement!)

how i wish i knew how to make all this mat salleh food! ;)
we tried the duck confit and pomelo salad, which was pretty good as well. it was served with a quarter of a lettuce to go with it. (we tried to wrap the salad with the lettuce leaf but kinda failed. so i just shredded it into smaller pieces to fork the salad and lettuce together and chomp!)

we had the lasagne as a main, which i forgot to take a picture! uh-huh. we just gobbled it up - it was that good!

right. that's it for the time being.
