Sri Hainan Kopitiam, Shah Alam, Aug 2012

Dear Diary,

On Merdeka eve, we thought of bringing the kids to watch fireworks. We didn’t travel far, just within Shah Alam vicinity. With no exact place in mind, at the very last minute, we decided to just park by the roadside in Section 7 and watch the fireworks from the comfort of our car.

Before fireworks watching, obviously we had dinner first. We dined at Sri Hainan Kopitiam, our favorite restaurant. It’s been ages since we last went there. So long that its menu has new items added. We did try some of it.

Cucur Keledek (still crispy even though after a while)
Toasted and Steamed Breads
Pulled Chicken Cheese Sandwich (A heavy meal, I tell ya!)
Mi hailam

Address: 2, Jalan Tengku Ampuan Zabedah G/9G, Section 9, Shah Alam, Selangor. Telephone number: 03 - 5880 2886.

Domino's Pizza, Aug 2012

Dear Diary,

Overstuffed with many types of rice and meat cooking during our balik kampung trip during Aidilfitri last year, I decided to just order pizza for dinner when we came back home. Everybody else readily agreed with me. So, Domino’s pizza delivery it was!

I ordered a combo that comprised of 1 large pizza, 1 sweet pizza and 2 cans of Pepsi.
Aloha Chicken with Cheese Burst Double Decker crust
Banana Kaya (Zarra loves this. She ate half of it.)

I got 1 free regular pizza because the last time they didn't deliver within 30 minutes.
Meat Mania with Extreme Edge crust

Vivo, 1 Utama, Aug 2012

Dear Diary,

We paid another visit to 1 Utama for last round of raya shopping towards end of Ramadan. This time we broke fast at Vivo.

Look at this cheeky boy acts while waiting for the food to arrive
Abang Imran stayed at Tok's house that day
We had dined at its outlet in Times Square before and the foods were good. This time the foods were a bit of a let down though some were satisfactorily. We booked a table and ordered our foods a few hours before iftar. I don’t know was it due to the foods cooked earlier in advance hence the taste was a bit out or what. Maybe that factor played a part too.

Mushroom Soups
Crispy Crumbed Chicken Tenderloin - yummy
Tropical BBQ Chicken Chop
NZ Mussels with Prawns
Baked Meatball Spaghetti
Choco Brownies Mallows (yummy), Coke Float, Iced Coffee Float & Citrus Heaven

Location: LG311B, One Utama Shopping Center, Bandar Utama. Telephone number: 03 – 7732 9799.

Meeting Smurfs

Dear Diary,

As we were walking from shop to shop looking for the kid’sraya clothing, we passed by quite a huge crowd at one of the concourse areas. We stopped by to see what the bustle was about since it was still a long time before breaking fast.

Oh, no wonder there were many children around, Astro was doing a promotion on The Smurfs movie (voice over version). Many fun activities for children were available such as coloring with colored sand, solving jigsaw puzzle, dancing and picture taking with Smurfs characters. Hafiz AF, who is one of the Smurfs voices, made an appearance on stage.

My three sweetie pies had a blast!

Johnny's Restaurant, 1 Utama, Aug 2012

Dear Diary,

Last year, we did our raya shopping for kid’s clothing at 1Utama. We only bought a few items, just to add to whatever their grandparents had bought them. When you have kids, their raya preparations are the priority and yours becomes secondary.

Among numerous eating places available, we picked to break fast at Johnny’s. Thank goodness, we made reservation about 3 hours before. It was full house come break fast time!

Chicken Rice
Pineapple Fried Rice
Hot n Spicy Fried Rice
Mushroom Fried Rice
Tomyam Steamboat has always been our favorite when dining at Johnny’s, but this time we tried different sorts of rice dishes. When the orders arrived, at a glance all looked the same. Well, look can be deceiving because each type of entree tasted distinctly different.

Mushroom, Beehon & Squid Ball
Beef Ball, Shrimp Ravioli & Beef
For steamboat, we didn’t order the usual set but ordered ala carte ingredient.

Strawberry Milkshake, Chocolate Milkshake, Pepsi, Pineapple Juice & Iced Lemon Tea.
