First Blogging Mamas meet for 2009

Working hard to catch up on all those back dated posts!

3.2.2009

It was the Heavenly God’s festival that day so we did not sleep till the wee hours of the morning as there were a series of firework display in our area the night before starting from 11.30pm till almost 2am! PiggyBeng was capturing all the fireworks with Darrius next to him enjoying himself while this mommy was in the kitchen rushing the cupcakes out intended to be given to a few mommies whom we will be meeting.

We started our journey around 9.30am and traffic was smooth. Stopped by Ipoh to have my bowl of noodle while PiggyBeng sip on his favorite Ipoh White Coffee at his favorite coffee shop…

This coffee shop is much better than the one we always patronized in Ipoh Old Town. It is so much spacious and airy and it has 2 shop units so can accommodate more people. Best of all, they have a few varieties of cooked food available and their coffee is smooth and good (according to PiggyBeng lar since I am not a coffee person).

What I normally go for when I am in Ipoh is the ‘lai-fun’ which is similar to the Laksa noodles but they cooked in clear soup. And I must have those ‘liau’ or something like stuffed tofu or ‘yong tau fu’ and fried bean skin to go with the noodles which we can hardly find in Penang.

We continued our journey after our lunch and arrived at the Jalan Duta exit around 2.30pm. We thought there was no traffic jam since it was still early but we were wrong! Our mistake was, we took the road at Dewan Pustaka as we hope to join up to the Cheras Road. The road works at the previous stadium roundabout caused the horrible jam where 4 roads converged into 2! We arrived around 3.30pm and shortly after we unload our stuff, the thunderstorm came! I should have gone with PiggyBeng’s suggestion to exit near Kepong so can shop at The Curve while waiting for the Blogging Mama meet!

So, we waited till around 5pm before we were off again to The Curve. It was still drizzling then but the rain was not that heavy until we hit Federal Highway. The rain was so heavy that we can’t even see the road! Luckily there was still no jam building up yet so we managed to reach in 30 minutes.

First thing of course is to hunt for Daiso! :mrgreen: Finally found it but was hugely  dissapointed as all the Bento stuff were almost gone except some very uninteresting bento boxes and insulated bags. *sigh* While in Daiso, we first met up with this wonder woman mama.

It was almost 7pm when we were done shopping in Daiso but the other 2 mamas still have not arrived due to the heavy rain (one stuck in the traffic jam and one can’t get a cab). So we proceed to have dinner at Kopi Tiam while waiting for the rest. Food was ok but forgot to take photos… 😛

Then at almost 8pm this super mama arrived with her 2 princes and maid then followed by this pretty mama who came back all the way from SFO with her girls (the younger girl did not join us that nite) and hubby. This is the first time I’m meeting up with Vien and her family.

Wow! Look at them! Annie’s boys are soooo cute!

We finally ‘san-band’ around 9.30pm after endless chatters… The rain has stopped so the enormous traffic jam also has eased and we were home by 10+.

What a tiring day! 😛

Thanks to Elina, Annie and Vien for meeting up!
