Street Art in George Town, A Remarkable Sight!

Day 2 continues…..
Visiting butterfly farms, temples & parks are certainly not in my family’s to-do-list during our vacation in Penang. The only tourist attraction that has caught my attention was the Street Art in George Town, which was something different.

Be My Friend Forever

Friends are like gems to me; so vulnerable, yet so precious. I treasure friendship, as much as I treasure my diamonds :) However, it’s not easy to sustain a pure & sincere friendship, especially lasting more than a decade.
Jen is my ex-classmate from secondary school, backdating all the way to 1980s. Yes, it’s that long. But we kept in close touch, though not meeting often. The last we met was a Sweet Indulgence At The Marmalade Pantry, more than a year ago. I’m always happy to see her.

Jen came to visit me, making more than an hour of journey by bus, train & bus again.

I’d the intention to prepare a feast fit for a queen, but Jen said she couldn’t stay long as she needed to pick her son up from school. She came after lunch, with a full stomach. A little disappointed, but I did not forget her approaching birthday on Oct 15. Besides a bottle of perfume that I’d arranged for her, I’d to prepare some snacks. That's the least I can do.

I try to remember my friends’ birthdays. Not that I’m running on the lastest memory chip with the highest capacity, but I make it a point to record their birthdates. So I won’t miss any, at least try my best not to. Now with Facebook, things even get easier, I get a reminder just before their birthdays.

Well, I wanted Jen to try the latest cocktail that I’d created for The Cocktail Challenge: "Luxury Haven" Cocktail Is Born!
Still using the same base, but I substituted Champagne with Sprite & the Yume with Strawberries instead. So did she like it?? Well, she finished the drink. So either she really liked it or she was really thirsty. LOL!

Then, I prepared Craby Celery Sticks with Bacon Bits. For sure, she loves the sticks as she was asking a lot of questions on the preparation. I wanted to give her something refreshing & crunchy since there was gonna be Deep-fried Prawn Paste Chicken Wings, so the Celery idea was perfect.
Come back for the recipe soon. However, I won’t be posting the recipe for the wings as it’s really too straightforward. You’ll just need to mix fermented prawn paste, which comes in a block, with water to make a paste. It’s almost effortless to make. Important thing is how you control the fire to make it really crispy.
Dessert was an implementation of the Hershey’s Fruity Surprise @ my hubby's Birthday Seafood Galore. But I’ve used up all the custard & coconut cream, so I'd to make do with Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey instead. Oh, how I love playing around with food. I’m a colourful person, so I toy with my recipes accordingly to my mood & the ingredients in my kitchen :)

Despite having a full stomach as she’d said earlier, I was glad Jen emptied all the dishes I’d fixed.

Jen then took out some gifts. OMG! It’s a Pearly Pink Hello Kitty Key Pouch that she’d gotten from Japan!! And……… she hand-made these pretty bookmarks & hp charm with “Shirley” beads on it!
Aren’t they lovely? Jen’s amazingly good with her pair of hands. She makes crafts & bakes too. Hop over to Agapejen Crafts Collections to take a look at their creations.

Jen also bought a box of donuts from Donuts Factory, enough to feed my family of 3. Hahaha!. Well, it was another day of fun & laughter!

Do you also have friends that you really treasure? Share with us one beautiful moment with him/her here & inspire others to treasure friendship. Let's give a toast to long-lasting & marvelous friendship!

A Lovely Gift - Hello Kitty


Isn't this fluffy Hello Kitty bedroom slippers simply adorable?

It was a gift from my good friend, Elena. No, it's not my birthday nor any special occasion. We met up for lunch & she handed me a huge Kitty carrier, saying it was for me. I was blushing with joy to find my favourite Kitty gift. How thoughtful of her. Yeh, I can add this to my Hello Kitty collection!

Friendship is like a flower. With each tender care, it blooms with beauty & strength. I always believe that kindness begets kindness & little nice gestures like this goes a long way.

Luxury Indulgence: Hello Kitty Gadgets

I’ll stick by my “You’re only young once” statement & I wouldn't let anyone stand in my way, especially when it comes to my adorable Kitty-chan! Indeed, the Japanese pop-culture icon has built up an impressive resume over the years & has recently become the new envoy of Japan. I’m already a mother of a teenage son but I just simply can’t divorce Kitty. Even my dearest mum would sometimes comment, “When are u gonna grow up?”.

I’m ashamed to confess that I was one of those who joined the unbelievable long beeline outside McDonald's years ago just to queue for the Hello Kitty stuff toy collection. Others would then in turn sell them for a profit, but mine are still with me till this day, in their nice mint condition. It was crazy those days, young & old would form queues outside Mac just to get a chance to buy the fashion divas. I’d even found myself accomplices, my mum & hubby, to collaborate in this silly & ridiculous game. He has long relented to my obsession & probably learnt that he has gotta live with the Japanese “mistress”.

Through the years, I’ve graduated from Minnie Mouse to Tweety Bird & finally to my current Kitty craze. I’ve a good number of #HelloKitty collection, ranging from stationery, travel accessories to gadgets & many were from friends, who spotted Kitty from their travels & bought them as souvenirs for me. I’d love to display them here, especially for Kitty fans out there, but it’s just too plentiful. But please bear with me, I feel the need to exhibit a few of my favourite gadgets, plus a lovely pair of ear-rings (2007 birthday gift from my son) & make the ladies go ga-ga:

Hello Kitty Touch-screen Handphone
Model: 328 Metallic Red Limited Edition
hello kitty touch screen handphone
This is a very basic #HelloKittyMobilePhone, it's just a fun gadget. I've added some bling-blings at the sides myself. Whenever I take Kitty out, I'd be greeted with smiles & giggles. Waitresses, sales staff etc would go green with envy & asked, "Where did u get this from? Soooooo cute, I want, I want!!!"

Hello Kitty Casio EX-Z80 Digital Camera
This is my latest toy - given to me on my last birthday. The price tag? A hefty ¥45,000! Over-priced for a Casio 8.1 Megapixel camera, I think. But who wouldn't forgive the manufacturer for such a lovely gadget?

This #HelloKittyCamera comes with a Hello Kitty themed case & startup screen. The 8.1 Megapixel camera has a 3x optical zoom, 2.6-inch LCD display & H.264 848×480 video recording.hello kitty casio ex-z80 digital camera review

Hello Kitty Ear-rings
Yeh, it's kinda childish but it was a sweet gesture from my endearing son. I've only wore it once, on that birthday, to show my appreciation. Now, isn't this lovely?
