Thali Meal

Thali Meal

Thali (Hindi: थाली, meaning "plate"; IPA: [t̪ʰɑːliː]) is an Indian meal with contents varying from one regional cuisine to another. A thali is a selection of different dishes, usually served in small bowls on a round tray. The round tray is generally made with steel with multiple compartments. Typical dishes include rice, dhal, vegetables, chapati, papad, curd (yoghurt), small amounts of chutney or pickle, and a sweet dish to top it. source:

My husband's favorite food to order every time we eat at Gem's Restaurant.

Lamb Shank

Let me take you back to Malaysia with my lamb shank photo. I got this from a restaurant in Swiss Garden Resort in Damai Laut. I was impressed with the food presentation. The taste was good too.

We used to go to Swiss Garden Resort for a family holiday last time. A friend usually gave us a holiday package for free. Sometimes she would give us 6 night/7day-stay. What we did usually was to invite a family friend with us, split the 6 into 3 nights with them. It's great to be holidaying with other families. Sometimes, we would break the 6 days into staying at Swiss Garden Resort in Damai Laut for 3 nights and Swiss Garden Resort in Kuantan for 3 nights.

We are blessed with friends that love to bless us. :D

Los Angeles

The image below was the Hollywood hill. I took a 180-degree turn and took a photo of the view. Los Angeles, the City of Angels. I had a great time touring around LA. Went to visit Universal Studios, Venice Beach, Santa Monica Beach and pier, Rodeo Drive (the shopping haven for those who can afford and window shopping haven for those like me), Hollywood Blvd., etc.

It's great to see other places beyond Subang Jaya...

Hollywood & Cars

I loved my time in Los Angeles. With friends touring us around, it was really great to see places, eat special cuisine, learning culture, etc. I was also glad to have met my grand aunt. From her, I learned something more about cars. And so, I took notes and interest in learning about autos, auto repairs, etc.

By the way, if you're looking for Los Angeles auto repair, I have found this when surfing online. Just visit RepairPal and they will take care of your auto repair needs. You can do repair shopping, compare prices, etc. You just enter your zip code and they will tell you all the repair shops in the area. So if you have a Honda Civic and you need to send it to repair shop, just check out Repairpal first. Who knows you might even get a cheap head gasket replacement.

See? I told you. My grand aunt has influenced me a lot when it comes to cars. :D

Kensington Gardens

Today, let me take you outside Subang Jaya... way outside... to Kensingto Garden, London. Went there last year during autumn. Loved the scene with all the maple leaves touching the ground. It was nice to be in an autumn... my first time.

Kensington Gardens, once the private gardens of Kensington Palace, is one of the Royal Parks of London, lying immediately to the west of Hyde Park. Most of it is in the City of Westminster, but a small section to the west is in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. The park covers an area of 111 hectares (275 acres).The open spaces of Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park, Green Park and St. James's Park together form an almost continuous "green lung" in the heart of London between Kensington and Westminster.

Breakfast at Tapah

Had a flat tire when we reached Tapah. So we had to stop and look for a mechanic shop. They didn't have spare parts for Volvo and the shops were already closed. Had to stay one night at a cheap hotel in Tapah. The next day, we had breakfast at a nearest Chinese Restaurant and I had char kuay teow while my boy was drinking his hot milo while waiting for his toasted bread.

Tapah is a town located in Perak, one of the states, in Malaysia.

We were by the way on our way to our Chinese New Year holiday break to Hatyai, Thailand.

Sunway Lagoon Club

I miss going there now. It's been a long time since we haven't gone there for a swim. Will definitely plan to go there. The children are also asking me when do we go back to the club. I love the new facility. They have changed the dry sauna into a steam sauna. Hmmm... thinking about it makes me really wanna go back there. NOW

Dory Fillet

One thing I am grateful about is that the kids love to eat fish. I found dory fillet from Carrefour which was very cheap. One pack would cost something like 3RM. That's not even a dollar! Since my kids love eating something crunchy, I just cut it into small pieces, dip in flour mixed with turmeric powder, deep dry them... and my kids would be begging me to immediately serve the fish.
