We went to UTC @ Puduraya in the hope of renewing our passports at about 4pm (the office closes at 9pm everyday) but were utterly disappointed when this notice greeted us at the entrance of the Immigration office. The numbers churned out for the day had reached the maximum and we were asked to come back the next morning. What bummer!
Since the hubs had planned to spend the entire evening with us, the girls suggested going to Mid Valley Megamall as Alycia and Drama Queen wanted to get some new pants and warm clothing for their holiday in Hong Kong. The two sisters will be flying alone to Hong Kong without any adult supervision. It will be their first ever overseas flight without their parents or grandparents accompanying them. We are not even getting them any airline escort as it costs too much to hire the service from Cathay Pacific. The cost is USD50 per child and the ticket has to be upgraded to a costlier one. I am getting more and more worried as the day of their flight draws nearer. After all, they are only 12 and 13. Though they look matured and sometimes act matured for their age, they are still little girls in my eyes. Drama Queen is not even a teenager yet. Alycia will only turn 14 two days after she reaches Hong Kong. And again, she gets to spend her birthday overseas. This girl is so lucky!
Ok, back to foodie talk! After we left UTC, we went to Mid Valley Megamall.
While I brought Alycia and Drama Queen to shop for their clothes, Cass had tea and cakes with her dad at Alexis.
After 1.5 hour of shopping, we had a sumptuous dinner at Han Room.
The hubs ordered the RM338++ set menu:
Clay pot coral shark's fins soup:
Succulent grilled Spanish style pork ribs:
Chilled star fruit juice accompanying the grilled pork ribs to refresh your throat after a meaty dish.
Sea clam and fresh 'huai shan' with minced green ginger.
Radish cake "typhoon shelter" style:
Braised fish maw with yam, fish and Chinese cabbage:
Crispy soft shell crab with abalone sauce claypot rice:
Dessert of chilled peach resin in snow pear:
Camwhoring time after a relaxing and sumptuous dinner.
Happy girls with bags of new clothes for their Hong Kong trip!
Sorry for the less than perfect photos as I had forgotten to put my phone into my handbag in my haste to rush out of house. Thankfully the girls brought along their Samsung phone (which is my old phone) to help me capture all these pix.
Thank you to my dear hubs for being extra patient with us today. He spent half a day today and another half day with us the next day just to get our passports renewed without a complaint 💗😘😘
