velley Brollywood

here's what my dad got for me! a kitty brolly! and i have been using it almost every single day as there are heavy downpours. At first when i first received it, i was quite surprised as i didnt think of a brolly as a necessity but it seems that daddy was right afterall!!! and wj is not afraid to use it with me too, provided that he is seen with me lah....
see, these are the tears from heaven on my new brolly!!

BakerzIn



it's me and wj first visit to Vivocity!!! and we decided to give our feets arest at Bakerzin! and we had une tasse de cafe au lait each and shared a warm chocolate cake which was their signature cake. Ozzing fuzzy warm chocolate fudge on the inside when u pierce your fork through, and when it went into my mouth...ooooh! so thick and velvety on the inside and chilling cool on the outside as the cake is topped with a scoop of fresh vanilla ice-cream. And it comes on a pretty plate with a ring of berries.
~happy boxing day tout le monde!

Xmas Preparation Part 01

Every christmas, the Yeo family is like a hub of buzz! and this year we decided to do things abit differently with the addition of a goh! SO instead of the usual turkey order and poor mum slaving in the kitchen to prepare a sumptous and filling diner, everyone of us were suppose to prepare a little something and so here's the order list:
  1. velle - dessert
  2. christine - appetiser
  3. wj (who calls himself JayWu now, *me: snigger & starts to roll on floor*) - salad (who chose the simplest one to prepare which is potato salad)
  4. mum - main course
  5. dad - order turkey


Xmas Preparation Part 02 - salade de pommes!

Here's THE biting LINE




let the party begin!

dad and mum over here...enjoying a laid back seat after seeing all the food!

trays and trays of sumptous seafood! from slipper lobster, fresh scallops, tiger prawns, mussels, cold crabs and of cos fresh oysters! *slurps* Then at the sashimi counter, there was tuna, salmon, swordfish, octopus, scallops and cuttlefish! Colourful mouthbite sizes of sushi and handrolls to cold noodles like soba and udon and hot hot miso soup!
Besides Japanese there was indian cuisine which served the usual satay bbq-ed to perfection which is so tender to the bite! and slivers down your throat! The peanut sauce was impeccable that goes so well with the crunchy cooling cucumbers and rice cakes!!!

Then there was murtabak and prata and lotsa of curry & rendang! okie...u get the point...of cos there were more counters which serve HK delicacies, salad bar, noodles (laksa, dumplings and wantons) Italian food which has 4 different types of pastas to choose from and sauces and of cos ur meat! and Continental buffet...and last but not least a shelf full of creams and puffs and decadent cakes and mousses! and oh oh! a ice cream counter which serves 8 different flavours for the nite! WOOHOO! and i almost forgot a glass of wine for those who can carry their liquor and to sum the nite was complimentary coffee or tea.
present giving time... she's ripping and she has...OPENED!

Birthday girl with birthday card (we even got the dogs to paw print their autographs on the card!)
