  3. The scallops look succulent, juicy and flavorful! So delicious but lately for me, I have been eating bland food :( coz have been feeling unwell.

    So, are you all packed to head back to Penang? Maybe I can come over & help you watch your melons! :) Hope you will get all your matters sorted out smoothly so that you'll have a wonderful Xmas time free of worries! :D

  4. Hi Nyonya...its flu season, take care ya!!

    How did you know one my major concerns?? I really need someone to take care of my melons and other plants while we are away!!!hahahahaa....
    I have a long "to buy, to pack, to do" list before take off to Penang, then have another "to buy, to do, to eat" list in Penang, I have been fully booked to gather with my family, friends and relative for the whole week that I am going to spend there. Conflict though.. I am ON DIET mar!!!! hahahaha

  5. You can be on diet AFTER your Penang trip lah. Really rugi if you go back Penang & diet. It's a food haven there!! Lol! I'm sure your melons will survive 1 week of 'absent love & care' from the owner :D.

  6. The dish looks very nice, you have captured it very nicely in pictures :).

  7. Ya lor...I already have a plan in my mind, I will order everything I have being craving for, then eat each of them portionly, and let hubby finish the rest...hahahahh..he has to be my tong sampah for a week! lol!!
