About Me

I am married to my loving husband for more than 38 years now. I am a mother to 3 beautiful children, until 11 years ago when I lost my youngest son. Since then my life is forever altered but yet unbroken....

Popia Kuala Kangsar...

"We live in an age when unnecessary things are our necessities..." - Oscar Wilde

(Wet and fried popia)

If you are looking for good popia try the popia Kuala Kangsar in Seremban located at the food arena of Stadium Tuanku Abdul Rahman, Paroi or locally called as Stadium Paroi.

There are 2 types of Popia available, Popia basah and Popia Goreng. Between the two I prefer the crispy fried popia. The Popia is a simple vegetable spring roll but what makes the difference is that it is garnished with a tasty hot and sweet peanut sauce.

We have frequented this place many times especially when we were on our way back from Melaka.

My 3rd grandchild, a boy...

A beautiful healthy baby boy was born today at 7.15pm in Pantai Hospital weighing 3.04kg. We are now proud grandparents of three beautiful grandchildren of two girls and a boy.

So on this day when you came 
Was the best day I could have ever thought
Never mind fortune and fame 
Go through lessons in life that can never be bought...

The Traveller

May you travel in an awakened way
Gathered wisely into your inner ground
That you may not waste the invitations
Which wait along the way to transform you...

May you travel safely, arrive refreshed
And live your time away to its fullest
Return home more enriched, and free
To balance the gift of days which call you...

~ John O’Donohue ~
