Many times I try to arrage an outing with my sisters and never happens. However 2 days ago , that is on Wednesday night called my sisters and said can we just out for lunch and then finish with tea and call it a day. Among the 4 of us only 3 of us could make it...without calling it off ... we went ahead . With it became 5 With my niece and grandson.
We left at about 11.00 pm heading for lunch at Gems, Brickfields. The place was not full ...we went for vegetarian briyani..I remember having vegetarian briyani here about 3 yrs back and liked it. Hoping for the same flavors ...however, just the cooks must have changed because it was nothing to recomand to anyone. In the mean time my little angle was not very comfortable ..by than the restaurant had filled up and was a bit noisy...little friend was not too comfortable...we took turn to have lunch. Wanted to finish with Koolfi that is indian ice cream changed our mind because my 5 month grandson who wants to grab everything within his reach was getting restless.
Christmas around.. Wanted to get into the mood and drove over to Suria, KLCC. The Christmas decorations were ....but was surely crowded probably year end sales or the festive season. Thinking that my grandson would be excited to see the lighted up decorations..to our dismay...he was actually cranky due to the crowd and noise...guess he was missing his comfortable zone.
We talked, mostly laughed a lot ... And that was fun....All in all, it was not the place.....it was being togather. Thank you Kris, with all the dead lines to meet before year end you valued the time to be togather....love you dear. Keeping my fingers crossed for another time togather.

11 October 2014, is a memorable and a proud day for my dear sangeetha and we her parents.
Although working for almost 10 months now, only today we had, the pleasure to witness her graduation at the AIMST university in Sungai Petani,Kedah.
Many may know that Sangee started her medical studies in Padang, Indonesia. Due to natural disaster, the earth quake which hit Padang in the year 2009 with scale of 8.5 which tore the city of Padang,the campus of University Andalas. The Malaysian government gave our students a one off chance for credit transfer and places in local private universities. AIMST was one of the Universities and Sangee choose to continue her studies here. It was all hard work to and struggle to where she is standing today.
Today as she graduates with a MBBS degree, the memories of her survival and struggle in Indonesia and in the AIMST university brought tears of joy to see her walking to receive her scrool, congratulations to you my dear, her batch mates and her dear Padang Gang.
Sanggi ma, congratulations on your graduation dear. As you go forward take along the lessons you learned in university and make your dreams come true. Our blessings are always for you ma..
