Mother Dearest

Today is my beloved mother's birthday and too bad I can't be back to celebrate it with her because my hubby couldn't take leave. But I knew much earlier so I already celebrated with her in advanced.

Two weeks back, we went for lunch after church and took her to a restaurant called Good New World in Malacca. It was quite a satisfying lunch although mum said, "aiyo so expensive". But birthday is but once a year right? Anyway, mum was quite pleased.

Elizabeth, Mum and my nephew Benjamin.

Then I wanted a pic with Mummy. Joseph and my another nephew Brandon is in the pic this time too.
Abalone dish. Ordered specially for my Mum but alas she said she couldn't eat much because her teeth are not strong enough to chew.

Xiao Bai Cai. We must have greens because I have a little vegetarian(Joseph).

We can't go wrong with any sweet and sour dish because that is what my nephews love! So sweet and sour pork it is.

Sek Pan fish. It has already been attacked then only I remembered to take a pic. LOL. Four dishes for my family of small eaters excluding hubby and me. Hehe.
After the meal, hubby took a ride around. Something caught our eye and we ended up at The Eye On Malaysia area. We saw people playing kites. Some were really huge. It was a windy day alright but some of the huge kites still has difficulty going up into the sky. We found out that there was some kind of water fest going on by Tourism Malaysia. We also saw a lot of Perodua Alza lining up. Apparently, there was some sort of competition going on. It looked like a competition for modified cars.

We never knew that this existed! Apparently there were some sailing and dragon boat competition that took place here.

I really like sailboats and wonder how is it like to be on one.

Couldn't get a good angle shot but that long kite is actually a giant squid.

The 'kite flyers' are trying very hard to make the kites go up. Quite unique kites which I haven't seen before. Looks like a ring with thorns, a cat and a parachute-like kite.

This was the winner of the modified cars competition. From what I observe, he won because of his effort. It's the most decorated car there.

The interior on the driver's side. So fast and furious right? So much details and there's even decorated lights inside.

At the front passenger's side. Check out the tray for putting wine glasses. But I wouldn't want to decorate my car like that. Just not my style.

Back passengers can watch different movies with their own individual screen and can even play chess. Haha.
Check it out man. While you open your car boot and admire the speakers you can chill by taking a sip of wine.

All the Perodua Alza cars lined up. Some of the cars just modified their engines, added large speakers but not decorated extensively like the winner.
Ok this post was actually dedicated for my Mum. She has been strong and trying very hard to move on. Although I know you break down from time to time, I will always be there for you. Wishing you a beautiful lifetime ahead. And wishing that I can get to celebrate many many more birthdays with you. Happy Birthday Mummy. Love always. XOXO.

  3. Hi Carolyn, your mom looks young. Tell her a gentleman from Canada wishes her many happy returns of the day. And lots more to come.
    I enjoyed looking thru the pics, and surprised see Malacca changed so much.
    Great pics too.
    Have fun and keep well.
    Best regards.

  4. Your mum sure felt happy as it is the heart that count.

  5. That is so warm and lovely! Birthdays are not necessarily celebrated on its actual day. As long as you get to spend an extra day with loved ones, that is BIRTHDAY ( and BONUS ) !

  6. Happy Belated Birthday to your mom :)

  7. Thank you everyone for the wishes. I will convey it to my mum..:)
