Happy Birthday To Me - Post-Celebration Ver.

A long and picturesque post! Read at your own risk and don't be late to your school/work/date/appointment/ or anything you have to do on time after reading my blog!

LOL! I can't stop laughing at myself for being a super procrastinator!

I actually blog about my birthday celebration after almost 2 months!

Hell yeah! This celebration happened at 5th, 6th and 7th of June~!!! XDXDXDXDXD

Anyway, I was mad happy because I celebrate my birthday at one of the most significant hotel at KL!!!!!!

Weeeeeeee~~~~~~~~~~

And it's none other than The Gardens Hotel and Residences!!!!


*On the way~!*


*The art of escalators*

Here we are:

*Hotel's Lobby... Not like what I'm expecting... A bit less grand-ish...*


Right after I checked in, Hana come and find me! She happens to shop around MidValley with her sister Nicole so they stop by and visit Xuan Xuan US! LOL!

*Nicole and her new love XD*


*While we chatting at the lounge area at the lobby, this lil fella just can't keep quiet. He insist in discover the lounge area 100% by climbing here and there!*


After Hana and her sis left, now is the time for exploring!!!

*Yeah, 1722, my room number!*


*The King Deluxe Bed! Super Comfy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!*



*The mini bar hidden inside the cabinet!*


*Their awesome bathroom!!!!*


*You'll find everything you need in this wardrobe! From iron to ironing board to shoe shine!*


*MAX HAPPY! I can have bath with bath tub for THREE DAYS!!!! Weeeeeeeeeeee~!!!!!!!!!!!!*


*Toiletries! But do you dare to use their lotion? Me don't!*


After we enough lazying in the room, we decided to bring Xuan Xuan to go for his first swim in his life!!!!!

*Beach Chair and Palm Trees... Imma relaxing in heaven!*


*Lots of people swimming!*


*I'm so ugly I decided to heart-cencored my face out for not spoiling your day!*


*After half an hour swim, Xuan Xuan become grumpy because of tired! Pity boy*


*Beside swimming pool, they have gym facilities too*


Not long after the swim, we received calls from Bun's mum! o_O"""""

Why is she calling???? I thought she was at Ipoh??? Is she planning something for my birthday? If not, is she trying to ruin my birthday????

LOL! It seems I'm over-reacted and actually she doesn't know when is my birthday! hahahahaha!

She called because she happens to be at KL that weekend and she's one of the helper for a ritual held by her religion association. It's a blessing ritual that hope for good luck and properity.

Anyway, she called and ask us whether we wanna attend the ritual. Maybe just for one night. (The whole ritual thing is going on for 3 days 2 nights).

Although I wanted to say no Of course we say yes! It's been two months since we last met. This is an opportunity for us to see her and vice versa.

And so, I say goodbye to the comfy king deluxe bed and all of us head to Chinese Assembly Hall just around Petaling Street there. (Yeah, the ritual held at there!)

The sunset is sooooooooo beautiful that day I just couldn't resist to camwhore with the shiny sunlight! XD

*One of my FAVOURITE photo of me! :D*


*I like the light from behind but I hate the car's P sticker!*


We parked our car at the police station around another end of Petaling Street, and we're mad fungry and don't know what to eat!!!

You say funny or not? Local people arrive at Petaling Street don't know what to eat!

We want something cheap but delicious. I suggest we can eat the famous Lao Shu Fen! Bun giving me the -_-" and say don't want because it's expensive! What the!!! It's super delicious ok??????????

And so, we settle our dinner here:
*A stall with so many bee hoonsss~!*


*Fried bee hoon and fried mee at the back*


The price is not that cheap... At least not as cheap as Setapak ones. And also, the food tasted so-so only.

After dinner, we walk to the Chinese Assembly Hall. Have to go through the scary padestrian bridge which lives a beggar with 3 mattresses! Damn funny when we saw that!

*The Chinese Lion statue at the main door of Chinese Assembly Hall*


We reach the hall by 8pm. We thought the ritual has started but no, Rinpoche wasn't arrive yet. After we meet Bun's mum and bring to socialize with her friends a while, everyone face expression suddenly become so serious. Then we know that the 'Precious One' has arrived!

Yeah, Bun's mum religion is Tibetan Buddhism. Cool right? My first time joining the activity of this and I get to see one of the highest rank people in the religion!!!


*Tibetan Lama's outfit is mad awesome!!!!!*


*Pardon moi's blur photo! The one with white cassock is Rinpoche... And I've heard that this is his 17th life!!!*

In Tibetan Buddhism, they believe that people like Rinpoche do come alive again. Not physically but soul and spirit.

That means this Rinpoche has been reincarnation for 17 times!!!! How amazing is that???


*Rinpoche giving opening ceremony speech. He's able to communicate in English and Chinese!*


*The Blessing Ritual*


*Mantras! I bet you don't see these in your normal life!*


*One of the sacred item which brings good luck!*


*All the colours and lights are beautiful! And one thing is Tibetan Buddhism offers sweets and cakes and snacks while praying to Buddha, unlike us normal buddhism offers chickens, fish and fruits.*


*After some time praying, here comes the climax of the whole ritual, and this part is called: Abhisenca 灌顶
Means dispel the bad and inpouring the goodness into you*

Everyone have to queue up and walk pass all the Tibetan Lamas and Rinpoche for this Abhisenca. 5 of the highest rank Lama/Rinpoche will hold some sacred items in their hand, and when you walk upon them and bow, they will pat/knock your head with those sacred items.

One funny fact is, the strength that those Lamas and Rinpoche use in patting/knocking your head is based on the evil you have inside you.

The more evil you are, the more harder they'll knock your head! This is to chase away all the evil you have inside you, and then inpouring the goodness, luck and prosperity.

While me and Bun were queuing for the Abhisenca, there's one Indian guy in the queue too. Just about 3 - 4 person ahead from us.

I watched him walk up to Rinpoche and bow, and Rinpoche knock his head so hard I think that guy will feel dizzy after that strike!!!

And I'm so afraid that I'm gonna get hard knocking like the man, but luckily NO! Hahahahahahahahahah! That means I'm a PURE PERSON!!!!!!!

The whole ritual ends at 10:45p.m. Me and Bun were damn tired! After talk to his mum for a while, we went back to the hotel immediately! Just can't linger around any longer!!!! I want to sleep in that comfy big bed!!!!

*Bangsar view at Night*


*KL view at night!*


Right after shower and all, 3 of us sleep like dead pigs because we're longing to go to tomorrow's breakfast at the hotel's significant restaurant - The Spread!!!!

I ♥ complimentary breakfast by hotel!!!!


Me and Bun, 2 siao kias wake up at 6:00a.m.!!!!! The breakfast starts at 6:30a.m.

Poor Xuan Xuan couldn't even sleep more....

Breakfast, here we come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*Yellow is ITS colour*


*Hahahahahahahaha~ Xuan Xuan looks so funny blur in this photo!!! Hahahahaahahahaha
Sorry la, for waking you up at this early! XD*


*See! The sky is STILL DARK!*


We go explore around first:

*Nasi Lemaks and all cooked food, Malaysian style!*


*Ham, Bacons, Turkey ham, honey, jam, breads ala Western Style!*


*Bun's first dish is Nasi Lemak along with Jalapeno Black Pepper Sausages!!! Yum!!!!*


*Various Veggie, Ham and Wedges!!!!*


*Moi's first time trying Muesli!!!! First, it tasted a bit funny but somehow I think it's nice after get used to its sourish taste!*


*You can even make your own waffles!!!!!*


*Turkey ham, smoked raw salmon and super raw salmon!!!! Who wants to eat raw salmon so early???????*


*They even got Dim Sums!!!!*


*When me and Xuan Xuan leaving the restaurant, the sky is just about to turn bright! LOL!*


*The Awesome View from my room!*


And this lovely Saturday afternoon, my ji muis will be visiting me!!! Yay~ Gathering!!!

*Hana arrive first, at around 3pm something... I forgot... Anyway, this is her and her godson XD*


*We're having lunch at Yoyo Snack, MidValley! I bet this will be one of the cheapest dining place in MidValley area! Try it! It's NICE!*


After Kei and Son arrive, we decided to hang out at MY ROOM instead of crowded MidValley!

We're chatting and watching TV shows and playing with Xuan Xuan all the time.

This is one of Xuan Xuan's trick - Now you see me, Now you don't!

*Where am I????*


*I'm HERE!!! XD Mad CUTE!*


*People I treasured most in my life*


*Wanted to take Kei and Xuan Xuan photo but that lil fella keep on moving!!!! Don't Move la!!!!*


*Act cute!!! LOL!!!!*


Later that night, all of us had our dinner at Steven's Tea Garden (Except Aira, she had to rush back for family gathering. boo hoo~).

*Cucumber Eater*


Although we might not having super uber fun day, but being able to chat and dine with you guys makes me feel happy! :)

After all of them left, me and Bun decided to go Jusco to buy some foods. For Supper of course!! XD

*He got himself this 50% Off Bento!!!!*

Bun just loves Japanese Food! Imma going to spoil him with all the sushi next time when we're moving to decent house!

Same as yesterday, we didn't do much tv watching or so... We just pop our head to bed and sleep! Breakfast again for tomorrow!!!!


*It seems we're a bit late than yesterday! It's 7a.m. XD Me and Bun can't get up from bed due to its comfyness!*

We're done with all delicious food at 10p.m. There's slightly changes of food list but still, tasty! XD

So, for the last few hours at the hotel room, I shall record all the nice and comfortable feelings with my pink blinged camera! CAMWHORE TIME!!!

*Xuan Xuan and his obsessions with water bottles!*


*Happy Day!*


*I used the ribbon from Aira's gift and put it on Xuan Xuan head. And he looks uber CUTE!*


*I Love My Aviator Shades!*


*Nice boh? I love this photo of mine!!!*


After lotsssss of picture taken, and packing done, we say bye bye to the sweet and comfy hotel room... Bye~ I'll miss you!!!

And yeah! I'm dressing up nicely to celebrate my birthday with Peiyue, KokCheong and Kevin Tay at this decent, very Japanish Japanese Restaurant Nihon Kai! Located at Old Klang Road!

*Nihon Kai... Means Sea Of Japan 日本海*




Peiyue suggest to dine at here! At first I thought it was just some Japanese restaurant we see all around but no! This one is something you don't see everyday. Sushi King, Sushi Zanmai and Sakae Sushi are all so commercial.

The whole restaurant is soooo Japan-ish that they provide Japanese magazines and mangas for you to read when you're waiting for your food to arrive.

I bet the owner of this restaurant knows how to speak Japanese too!

I felt as if I'm living at Japan!!!

And here's our food!:

*Fried Japanese Tofu with soup. The tofu is super soft! Comfy like the bed back in hotel room! XD*


*What I ate that day - Butter Salmon!!!!!*


*The butter is evenly spread on every inch of the fresh salmon! The taste is SUPERB!!!!*

For your information, this is MY FIRST TIME ordering a salmon dish.

I never like salmon before because I think its fishy smell makes me wanna puke sometimes. But the salmon they use in this restaurant is fresh and there's no fishy smell at all!!!! Hooray~ I'm in love with Nihon Kai's butter salmon!!!!

As USUAL, someone is late for this lunch session. That person is none other than the Lao Gao King - Kevin Tay!

CAN YOU STOP BEING LATE OR NOT????????? LOL!

Anyway, after everyone of us finish lunch (including that lao gao), it's time for dessert! And the dessert is none other than my.....

CAKE
*Happy 22 years old to me!*


* I LOVE TOKYO! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!*


I've been living for 22 years... But not one is as meaningful as this one does because I have my own family and friends which are always with me supporting me all along. I love all of you!!!!!!!

*The Forever SEISYUN! Qi will not be forgotten!*


*Seisyun -1*


*Thank You!!! You guys are the BEST!!!*


In case you guys are curious what gifts I get for my birthday:

*From Kei and Aira!*


*Leonidas Chocolates from Aira!!!! I bet they're expensive!!!! I spent 1 weeks to finish all these!*
