New Series of Malaysian Banknotes @ 2011

I was informed that a new series of Malaysia Banknotes will release somewhere early next year. Last week prior to my return to Malaysia, I went to check out Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) websites and it was revealed that the commemorative sets were on sales on 22 December 2012 onwards.

It was already 5 days after the released of the commerative notes and decided to call in to check whether the sets are available. The last thing you want to do is to go there and to be told that it is all sold out. =.=  After several attempts, I finally got through the line and was told that the sets were still available but at limited  quantities. My mum and I decided to go over after our lunch since it was already 12pm and they will be closed for lunch time.

Upon arrival, we saw the crowds lining up at the main entrance. We were informed by the guard there that the crowds was relatively fewer as compared to the first and second day. Can't imagine how was the first day crowds like (=.=)'''

After half an hour, I looked back the crowds.....

Nevertheless, after waiting for 45 minutes, we managed to get two Full Set (RM1, RM5, RM10, RM20, RM50, RM100), two Sets of 1 (RM20) and two Sets of 2 (RM1 and RM5). ^^

Overall, the new series draws its inspiration from the distinctive features of Malaysia, incorporating elements of the country's natural treasures, culture and heritage. Check out their video at the bottom:

Family Dinner Gathering

Last night we have a gathering at my place for a family dinner. When it comes to dinner with my mum’s side @ uncle, aunty,  cousins and nieces, we sure know how to have a full feast!!!! (That would explained my expanded waistline >.< ) Check out the food we have for dinner.

For desserts, we have home made Bubur Cha-Cha, a Nyonya dessert of coconut milk with sweet potatoes, yam (taro) and tapioca pearls. Yummy!!!!!

I just love being back home with my families. Like they said, there is nothing like home sweet home....and home cooked food. =p 

Waiting for our next gathering for our CNY feast!!!! ^^

Coffee Bean @The Curve

It’s the holiday season and I‘m currently back in KL for a holiday. =)  I have to admit, I have not been updating my blog for quite a while (Since Sept >.<).  Hopefully I will be able to update as much as I can to share with you all what I have been up to. =)
Anyway, yesterday my friend and I was at “The Curve” for some catching up and decided to drop by at Coffee Bean for a cup of drink. For Citibank card holder, you are entitled for 20% off, which includes using your rewards point. Weeeeeee
