Ice Room Restaurant, Seksyen 8, Bandar Baru Bangi

There is a new restaurant situated several shops from PappaRich restaurant called Ice Room and we decided to give it a try. Although their signature dish is the ice creams, they still serve variety of foods of what you would normally found in any other restaurants. I think their deep fried durian tempura is amazing but its price of RM5 can scare away the customers. Overall, their food is not bad and their ice creams have a unique texture that makes them distinguished from the rest. Total bill for the whole family is around RM60 which is a bit above average.

Adzrin Adzhar - Pujaan Malaya

World Cup visitor

This evening my friend, Amir dropped by to our house and we invited him for a dinner. At the same time Manchester United were playing Bolton so he joined me to watch the game. He gave me two souvenirs that he bought in South Africa during the World Cup, a vuvuzuela and a South African supporters shirt. Maisarah is very fond of the horn and keep blowing it non-stop. I'm still trying to figure out how to blow it.

Visiting friends

Today we started our day by visiting Wan Huzaini and his family at Kampung Tunku, PJ. Bakri and his family were already there and the kids are just happy to finally meet each other again and I think they are the one who are having the most fun. Afterwards we went back to Bandar Baru Bangi to visit Fazrul and his family. We met more Lancaster friends there like Azrul and his family, Jun and Aisyah.

Happy Birthday John Norafizan

I invited Norafizan to come to my house for Hari Raya. By evening he is still nowhere to be seen and I gave him a call to confirm his attendance. He nearly forgotten about the visit and quickly heading to my house. When he arrived we surprised him with a birthday cake because today is his birthday (I found about it in the Facebook). After the customary singing and cutting the cake, I asked him to autograph two of his novels that I bought. Now all four of his novels have been autographed by the author himself. Time to list them all on EBay, just kidding!

Visit from friends

Today we received a lot of visitors to our house to celebrate Hari Raya. Majority are my old friends as some have been friends with me for more than 22 years. Even my current students came to visit and they got a surprise in form of duit raya just like other children. It's good to keep in touch with them and I hope I will be able to see them again from time to time.

Iwan - V.I.P.

Nizam's Open House

Yesterday I received a dinner invitation and today another of my friend, Nizam invited me to have a dinner in his parents' house. I went there with Ilyas and we were among the first to arrive. Most of the visitors were my primary schoolmates and I was having difficulty remembering their faces and names. After all it has been more than 20 years since I last met them. Never the less it's good to be able to meet them again after all this while.

Ana Raffali - Tolong Ingatkan Aku

Family Photo

With the addition of a new member in the family, perhaps it is time to have a new family photo. However, it's not easy to have everyone under the same roof at the same time so we were quite lucky tonight to be given such opportunity. Some of us are still wearing working clothes and there are those who already preparing to go to bed but by 10pm everyone managed to put a smile in front of the camera.

Congratulations Enol & Tina

Yesterday my sister Tina finally gave birth to a healthy baby girl. She weighs around 3.1kg and both are doing fine in the KPJ Kajang Hospital. So today after Jo finishes her work, we went there with Tok Wan and Mak Tok joining us. Ilyas was quite excited to see the baby but Maisarah was a bit apprehensive at first. However after awhile her curiosity turned to happiness as she is already looking forward to play together with her first female cousin.

Boys Night Out (or In?)

Tonight Manchester United will be entertaining Liverpool at the Old Trafford in the Premier League match. Since Raya mood is still on the air, I decided to invite my former high schoolmates for the dinner and at the same time watching the game in my mom-in-law's house. I planned the invitation so that those who supported Liverpool will never outnumbered those who supported the Red Devils. However some of them could not make it and by the time for kickoff I realised that the we have an even number of fans for each team with one I think is indifferent. I have a big smile when Man Utd were leading 2-0 but soon enough Steven Gerrard scored two goals which makes the match become really interesting and all of us remain fixed to the screen. When Berbatov scored the winning goal for Man Utd, it was more like a relief for me than anything else. And some of us will definitely be driving home alone that night.
