A Date With theHub

Thanks to Sis, both of us have a few hours of free time to have a date. It wasn't planned. We were at the Spring to get our groceries done. TheHub suggested we should grab something to eat before we pick up our little devil. 

As usual, I will let theHub decides what is for our dinner. He will normally order salmon sashimi in Japanese restaurant, be it in chain restaurant or our local Japanese restaurant. Seaweed is something that he will order if he is 5% more hungry than usual time. hahaha.

Yellowtail sashimi, one of his loves. 


So, while waitinggggg... we haven't been doing this for super long time lo... Selfie/Wefie/Fiefie timeeeee... with our fugly faces. Hahaha.. 





White Maguro Sashimi on the left, Yellowtail Sashimi on the right. Two of his loves, other than Salmon Sashimi.

While I was searching for white maguro texture, to my surprise, there are many links showing "Sushi lovers should be aware of White Tuna / White Maguro" .. like wth.. we have been eating this with no fear all this while. Suddenly all these links showing the danger of White Maguro O.o Now, I have homework for theHub to give me a summary if we should be eating this on our next visit to Japanese Restaurant. 

Overcooked beef noodles. T_T 
Not sure if our cooking skills upgraded, or the chef at Sakae Sushi's skill downgraded. It cannot be our skills upgraded because we have no skill at all weii... so, it should be the latter. Even the service is no longer as friendly as it used to be.

Note to self: Remember not to order the same beef noodles again in the future. Should we be craving for beef noodles, there are many other better beef noodles out there at Kopitiam. Haha.

Baby's Instant Food

Visited our doctor for Baby's vaccination yesterday and I was told because Athena is a breastfeeding baby so her weight is not going to increase if I continue to breastfeed her. :( As if being a mom is hard enough. Not getting support from people around you makes a Mom's life even harder. I have been told how breastmilk is no longer needed by a baby after a month, after 2 months, after 3 months and even up till today I am still being told I should stop breastfeeding. I don't talk about this with any other people other than my bm-mate cos only breastfeeding moms understand each other. Stubborn, is the word I often hear. Yes. I stubborn because I want to give the best for my baby. Do you think I enjoy not sleeping because sometimes I need to pump? I don't want to argue with you what my breastmilk can do to my baby, but all I can tell you is, my baby is healthy being a breastfeeding baby. I am glad that I am still able to provide her some milk, though not much. She is good. She is active. She is evil. I do not see what is wrong with my breastmilk, like seriously. I did not force you to drink my milk, why la you want to comment on my baby's food ler? Unless you have secretly tasted my milk without me knowing? 

Ok. So next you want to say my breastmilk doesn't have this and that now right? So, what about this? We bought her Baby's #1 Brand for Iron. Gerber Oatmeal & Banana Cereal. 

I am not sure how much must I feed her, but I know after I feed her this bowl, if she wants more, she will ask for more. Otherwise, what I fed her should be enough for her "that time" consumption. 

Thi is very suitable for busy mummies who do not have much time to prepare food for their babies. Grab a bowl, pour some cereal in. Add a little hot water and some water. Then stir. 

If you feel it is too watery, just add some more cereal and stir.

Now.. feed your baby anytime they want it. Bahahaha.. We bought lots of other food for her. We did not starve her. Her weight does not increase most probably due to she is being active walking around, carrying this and that. She workout too, don't play play.

Gloomy Days for Sarawakians

A day I will always remember. 11th January, Sarawak Chief Minister, Adenan Satem passed away. :( I did not know why and I still do not know why am I being so sad over someone who is not even any related to me. He was our CM, and will always have a place in our hearts. Google his name and you will find all the things he did for us Sarawakians. Thank you TokNan.

On an unrelated note, I was at Vivacity Mall yesterday and before we make payment at autopay machine, we entered MPH Bookstore to buy a book by famous blogger, Cheesie. I have been reading for a very long time and I cannot say I am her number fans after I finished reading her book. She has many fans who deserved to be called her number onesssss fansss.. Pardon my grammar but she is really one down to earth blogger I really admire. I admire everything about her. She is a mum of two and she even have time to blog, and now she is an author of her book. Like OMG !!!  How did she even do it? I cannot even handle my one baby and she is like really SuperPokeMOMgo lo. 

Buying her book to read doesn't mean I want to make a living blogging. I know I cannot. Simply because I am living in Kuching and opportunities in Kuching.. I shall just say.. nothing.. hahaha..   I want to know more about Cheesie and how did she do all the things that I do not think i can even make it. Spending RM29.90 on this book which took me less than a day to finish is so shocking to my husband and even myself. I have never, NEVER finished reading a book. This is one interesting book that kept me reading before I sleep.. and the first thing I opened up my eyes is to bring this book to my pumping station.. and even into the car to read when I was a passenger in the car. Not sure if I am starting to become a bookworm because we are trying to get Athena to start reading, so in order to get her to start to read, as parents we need to read in front of them (Monkey see, monkey do), or I just want to 38 on her life. I guess it is more on the latter. Hahahaha !!! 


I am not lending anyone this book. Grab your own copy to support her. At least I think the money spent on this book is worth every cent. You can get some cheesie stories not shared in her blog in this book. Grab a copy now. Hehehehe..

Get Together at Bon Ton Bistro (BTB) ChinaHouse Kuching

It has been so looooonggg since the crazy "bloggers" gang get together. Ok. At least on my part, I haven't been to a gathering or a food tasting or an event for quite a long time since.. since... I know theHub cos he didn't let me go  few years ago. I normally tell people that I am a retiring blogger. I know nothing much about anything around me, anymore. Even my blog wordpress also got jinx. It was like, I couldn't do much when I wanted to. I tried many times to recover my blog, to make it prettier, to make it more lively. I tried to even purchase template. But in the end, I jinx up everything on my blog and I just let it die  I got discouraged.

I even thought of just closing down my blog. There are lots of memories there. I didn't start blogging with this domain. I started with blogspot. I thought of recreate another blog, but then again, I felt so sad if I just let rosewong.com die. Dilemma. So, it took me quite sometimes to put my domain to blogger, but the sad thing is I failed to recover all my previous blogposts. I was sad, very sad that I tried and tried and tried.. and finally gave up. I started from scratch again. Domain name to be hosted at blogger. I don't blog as often as I used to, so there is really no need for me to pay for hosting, when I can get free hosting from blogger. Wakakaka. #nuffsaid

First of all, I want to thank Jacq for extending the invitation for this "fine dining at Courthouse". It was initally on Wednesday, but I couldn't make it. So, I was told by Jacq they changed it to Thursday. So.. people changed liao you still don't want to give face meh? I did tell Jacq I am a retiring blogger already. I almost do not have my own time, hence no blog post lo. If I go, people won't recognise me also ba.. hahahaha.. anyways... since I haven't met the girls for such a long time, I asked theHub if he can take care of the baby so that I can go gather with the girls. He agreed and the rest of this theHub agreed to take care and then....story I shall kept for next time.

Ok.. straight into the topic again. This time real real the same topic but going to tell you what happened.. I reached Plaza Merdeka at 6pm. I took out my phone, read messages from the girls and discovered that Jacq mentioned, cocktail reception at 6.30pm !!! Did she just say COCKTAIL RECEPTION?! if only 3 of us, there won't be a cocktail reception ma right?? Why is there a cocktail reception?? Who got married?? WTF !!! Nervous max when I discovered I underdress for a cocktail reception !!! For Jacq, as usual she will make up and wear till very pretty.. and Yien as usual, wear what also pretty one... and I was on my work wear, jeans and blouse with white canvas shoes. I thought it was only the 3 of us and the Courthouse people so I did not prepare to go in fine dining attire la. Not even heels ok.

And then Yien told me Eve will be going.. and I went like.. Whaaattt??!! Sounds like a big event. Told them I need to go makeover. I mean like at least with a dress and a pair of heels.. and at that time it was already 6.15pm T_T .. I have no cash with me. I only have credit card so that also means I only can shop at places like Parkson. O.o

6.54pm Yien whatsapp said faster come. She had 3 glasses of wine already. I thought she quits drinking many years ago. Hahahaha !!!

and yesssss.. I was super late. 7.02pm I managed to buy a dress and a pair of heels and run to the event place, Vine & Single and got lost until the girls come out to say helloooo to me.. Hahaha.. Spent more than RM350 just to attend this event. Siao or not?!


I was welcomed by friendly team and seen some familiar faces !! Like OMG !!! Super excited. Glad that I was not underdress lo... definitely worth the money spent dressing up just to meet this bunch of people. We were then toured around the Chinahouse, with them introducing the famous many many cakes Kopi C Cafe, then to Art Space and Canteen.

Unique collections. If you want to get something not so usual and is special, come and have a look of what they have. You might find something that you like for yourself and even for your loved ones. 






The highlight of the evening of our Get-Together is to dine at BTB (Bon Ton Bistro).
