Weekends fly by like a rainstorm. Short. And gone.

During the weekends that i am in Ipoh, i relax and just roll in and out of bed... like the lazy bum that i am. I don't really cook on weekends. I just give the doggies baths and clean their beds and change the sheets on our beds and rest of some chores.

Today, we went to the Old Andersonian Club to have a late lunch. Its banana leaf indian rice. One of my old schoolmate did a pretty good review on the food there. I've been wanting to go check it out after i read her review. I must say that the food is not bad... the coffee is great.. and the ambience.. that's what i love most about that place. Its windy.. and its under a big big old tree.. (sorry.. i forgot my camera.. i won't forget the next time)... and i should be going there more often.

I've been away from my hometown for a very long time. Since i came back 2 years ago to stay with dad and Boy, i am still trying to get settled in. I don't really go out and mingle. I have loads of relatives around us.. dropping food and visits all the time. They are very nice people. My family is quite extended as my father is from a very big close family. We are lucky as we grew up with many cousins to play with and extended family to help around.

I was telling Boy today that we should take grandpa out to eat at a new place every weekend. I feel guilty sometimes when i am living in the same house with my father but i hardly even spend much time with him. I am working and working.. or i am cooking or cleaning something.. hahhahahaha. Am i doing the best that i can?

The only thing i really know how to do is take him out to eat at new places.. hahhahahahaha

Tomorrow morning, we are going Dim Sum.. if i can wake up. Of course i can wake up. I better call it a night now. Hopefully... some pics for you tomorrow :) Goodnite folks.

I haven't had banana leaf rice for awhile now!!! You're such a good daughter! Parents like to eat good food and whenever my momma is in town i will bring her to new restaurants as well.

I'm not reali a fan of banana leaf rice.

I can't recall ever bringing my mom eating out... my sisters and I did try to bring her out jalan2 but she tak mau. She preferred to go with dad.

I feel bad now :*(

Not everyone like banana leaf rice Ness.. :)

My mom used to love to eat out.. and she loves shoes and handbags :) every CNY and Christmas.. i feel sad cos i cannot buy the things for her anymore. Its just about trying to do the best that we can while they are around Ness.. lepas tu.. just live your life with less regrets.
