We ordered a whole Peking duck and had the duck eaten in 2 varieties. First, we ate the crispy duck skin with spring onions and sweet sauce wrapped with an egg sheet. The duck meat was then used to cook stir-fried noodles.
Yam basket, which was very tasty.
Sweet and spicy diced chicken breast on hot plate.
Grilled cod fish
This bowl of carbo tasty heavenly. Anyone would just forget about their diet plan and bulging belly when they taste this! I want more now!!
Kwai leng koa (Herbal jelly) with fresh sea coconut and sago.
And this is one of the tastiest desserts I had ever eaten - white almond milk double boiled in a young coconut, served with 'lui sar tong yuen' (black sesame seed paste filled glutinous rice balls)

When I was busy with other chores, Sher helped me entertain Baby C by singing to her...
... and Baby C simply adores Sherilyn cheh cheh too. In fact, she really loves to be in the company of both her cheh chehs. She would give me a wide grin whenever she hears her 2 boisterous sisters' voice, laughter and screams when she had just gotten up from her nap. She would also squeal and scream to draw her sisters' attention. It is really heart-warming to see the 3 girls enjoying each other's company.
Baby, crawl to cheh cheh... come on....
On a side note, we had a sumptuous dinner at Prince Hotel last night. I had one of the best desserts I have ever tasted! Go check out my other blog to find out!

We were served with this cold Japanese cucumber dish as appetiser at Tin Tai Fung Chinese Restaurant the other day. Though cucumber is quite a tasteless food, the way this dish was prepared made the cucumber really tasty. The sliced cucumbers tasted sweet, a tad spicy and aromatic (from the sesame seed oil), cold, crunchy and whet one's appetite easily. I think the ingredients used to marinate the sliced cucumbers are sesame seed oil, a dash of salt, some fried garlic and some red cut chillies... and in go the sliced cucumbers into the fridge. This appetiser is best served chilled. I am going to try this dish coz it's not fattening, is quite a healthy dish and fills you up too!

This brat had in the past spoilt the water faucets and shower faucets in our bathrooms downstairs and upstairs countless times. This brat of mine is ever full of energy and ideas. Even when she does her business or takes her shower, she can't sit or stand still and must surely be up to something to keep herself entertained and occupied!
Oh yeah, my brothers and I ate quite a bit of the 'White Rabbit' milk candies when we were young more than 2 decades ago. How we loved those candies with edible papers. O_o, I just hope that the manufacturer did not taint those candies with melamine then!
Also, Alycia and Sherilyn ate loads of Baby Bites rice crackers a few years ago and I read from one of the mummy's blogs yesterday that Baby Bites were made in China and had milk in them! Sei hmm sei!! I just hope that Baby Bites aren't tainted with melamine as well.

I was really amazed when I first saw the world’s smallest removable storage module – the micro sd TransFlash Mobile Memory Card used for expanding the memory capacity for mobile phones. It only measures 15 x 11 x 1 mm (L x W x D) and can be inserted into an adapter and used in other SD-enabled devices. Amazing isn’t it? So tiny yet so powerful! I want to get one for my mobile phone too when it’s available in our country later.

On your marks, get set......... GO.....
I can do push-ups too...
... and I like to turn my body at a 45 degree angle to see what's going on around me, hehehe.....
The urine culture test which came out yesterday showed a moderate growth of E Coli and Klabsiella bacteria in Baby C's urine again :(. However, our paed nephrologist is not too keen to inject her with painful antibiotics jabs again. She ordered a repeat urine culture test on Friday (tomorrow) and will decide on the next course of action from there. Oh God, please whatever it is, just spare Cassandra from further pain and torture!

Wish us luck. I am mentally prepared to have Baby C undergo a surgery to fix her urinary system so that she does not have to suffer anymore UTI attacks. Everyday is like a nightmare for me for the past 3.5 months and I just hope I can put all these behind me soon.

At the pool side of our condo last night.

With Sherilyn, it's tough. The first day, there wasn't any pee accident. Second day, she peed in her pants. Third day, she wore diaper to nap. The fourth day, no pee accident. Fifth day, pee accident again ..... and she would pee in her pants every other day though I had made sure she peed before she napped. She even peed in her pants half an hour after she had peed in the toilet. It's already 2 weeks since I ditched the diaper but she's still peeing in her pants during her nap. Many times I just felt like giving up and just put her on the diaper but I keep telling myself that I should not regress but should put in a little more effort. If I give up, both of us would have to go back to square one and start all over again. Hopefully over time, Sher would have learnt to control her bladder even during her sleep. Oh gawd, it's so tiring having to train Sher and take care of an extra clingy baby.... a baby whom I have to ensure that her diaper is changed after every pee to prevent another UTI. God help me please!!

And I reward her by letting her suck on an apple!
Here's what we ordered :
Fish and chips - nothing to shout about.
Baked cod fish.
I like how their green tea was served - in a very cute teapot under flame with 2 tiny cups.
Hubby's sirloin steak.
My salad - with lots of olives and grilled chicken breast. The salad was served in a really large glass bowl which resembled a sink!
Mushroom soup for the kids.
My oxtail soup - very good. The meat was very tender and flavorful.
Prawn and avocado salad.
For dessert, we ordered Tiramisu in a cup which tasted heavenly! It has lots of rum and was very moist and smooth. We also ordered a strawberry jelly with whipped cream and I did not quite fancy that.
There were 7 adults and 2 kids and the total bill came up to RM500+. Quite costly eh?
