Mother's Day 2016

On the eve of Mother's Day, the hubs surprised his mother and the mother to his daughters to a sumptuous dinner at Unique Seafood Restaurant, PJ.

I didn't know that he would be bringing us to this restaurant until the eleventh hour. I hadn't charged my mobile phone and did not even bother to  bring my power bank along for dinner.  Saturdays are always hectic for me.  In fact, every single day is HECTIC for me.

When we reached the restaurant (after a tensed car ride in a torrential  thunderstorm with floods every where), I realized that my mobile phone only had 1 bar of battery left.

Thus, the only picture that I could possibly snap with my dying phone was this - ultra fresh raw oyster.

The hubs also ordered steamed prawns, sweet and sour crabs, fish, fried rice, veggie and a steamed chicken.  Too bad, my phone had died on me and I couldn't take anymore pictures that night.

On Mother's Day (Sunday), Cass made me a very simple breakfast first thing in the morning (picture below).

She used Meiji crackers with cheese spread, organic brown rice rings, nuts, banana and tortilla chips... with a lovely note to the plate :D

She also made me cards and gave me an ang pow... with RM3.50 inside 😆😍

At church, all the mothers received a Mother's Day gift.  I got a pair of earrings!

After lunch, we had coffee, tea and cakes at LDG (Les Deux Garcons) @ De Market.

The MIL and I received a surprise from the lady boss.  She gave us each a bowl of yummy homemade marble cake with ice-cream and cookie crumble.

At night, the hubs surprised us again. He had earlier said that he wouldn't join us for dinner as he had a basketball match. Half way through dinner at our favorite neighborhood restaurant, he turned up--- and ordered a gigantic steamed fish, on top of the dishes that I had earlier ordered.  The fish was really humongous and we gave a quarter of the fish to the lady boss, whom we have become really chummy with after over a decade of patronizing her restaurant.

A few days before Mother's Day, I received a very lovely Mother's Day card from one of my loyal blog readers.  She has been sending me homemade Mother's Day cards for the past 4 years.  This is the 5th year that she sent me a card that she made it herself.  I am truly touched. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, S! :)

I hope you've had a wonderful Mother's Day celebration, with you being pampered by your little ones and your man :)
