Bukit Jelutong Recycling Centre Earth Day Celebration 2019

Last weekend we were roped in to help out with the Earth Day Celebration at Bukit Jelutong Recycling Centre. It was fun.

As it was quite a last minute thingy, Mamarazzi only managed to propagate a few plants  to be given out during the Earth Day Celebration.

Our dog also was called to guard the "Black Gold". It's actually used coffee ground that Papa collected from Starbucks. Mamarazzi dries them and packed them in newspaper. These were given out during the Earth Day Celebration.

Here is the venue.

Got there early and help out a bit. 

The forever cheerful Aunty Karen and Dr Azila  were there already when we arrive. They were arranging the plants.

No explanation needed, I guess. free food too. But have to wait for the speeches to be over first. 

Meantime, the kind Uncle Gary treated me to Nasi Lemak while waiting for the Plant Exchange and adoption to begin. 

There were games too  for kids.... and adults.

If you win, you get to choose a prize. 

Informative speech by Datin Sivamani

After  speeches from various VIP, it's finally "chow" time. ... 

Oppsss.... I mean plant adoption time.  Wow... so many people interested to adopt the plant. It's nice to see that. 

Following are two videos. One by Mamarazzi and one by me. 

Video by Mamarazzi

The following is video by me. Hope you don't get dizzy watching it. Am still newbie. recorded using Mamarazzi's hands me down phone. 

Okay.... till we "meet" again next time.

March - Qingming, Eat and Eat and Eat


The next morning woke up early... not that early la but 6.30am coz going for QingMing. It's Chinese traditional festival . Qingming is Tomb-Sweeping Day. This year it's on 5th of April but can do it 2 weeks early.

It's my first time going for this. The night before, Papa told me a few "Do Not". DO NOT speak nonsense at graveyard. DO NOT simply pick up anything and bring home. DO NOT answer when hear people call my name. Guess, this is the only time I can ignore when I hear my name being called.

And it's the only time I get to "play" with fire. I was "in-charge" of burning offering to my ancestors.

After finish the offering, it's time for us to cari makan . Went and bought delicious "roti paung" and Nasi Minyak for breakfast.

Previously I did not like Nasi Minyak. But this time, am crazy about Nasi Minyak. Day and night also want to eat that. That day I had Nasi Minyak for breakfast , lunch and dinner!

Dinner was with Papa's friend. We went somewhere around Marang. Service was slow . Thus, I have time to play with my "new"/inherited phone.

Snapped some selfie

Some seaside scene. 

Wefie with Mamarazzi

Finally food was served. The fried prawns were cold but the Keropok Lekor and the fried sotong was good. Still not satisfied. I suggested we go have second round dinner at Warung Katana. The Keropok Lekor there was yummy. 

Papa said okay and off we went. Yahoo!

Stop by Warung NorAzila to tapau some nasi minyak as Papa's friend  have not eaten that for long time. I also want la. 

At Warung Katana we did not ordered much. Just ordered seafood tomyam , ABC and salted fish fried rice. The food was yummy

And of course the Keropok lekor. Gone in a blink. 

I had Nasi Minyak. Niceeeeeeee....

Next day its time to go home lo. But before that, must stop at Gerai Warisan Losong to buy some vacuum packed keropok lekor to bring home. 

And some to eat in the car... Hey... those things behind there not all mine ah... some are "Courier Service"  things.

Hey! They have expanded. They were selling Sata/Satar too. It's a traditional food. Fish paste mixed with some birds eyes chili and dunno what then grill.

Mamarazzi wanted to buy fish from Temerloh . So we stopped there for lunch. This time we went to a new shop instead of to the Esplanade. 

We went to Go Bang Maju  Patin Tempoyak. It's a self service type of restaurant. Very organised.  There is a counter where customer can go and take their food. Each dish is put into small individual plate and bowls  and price is stated clearly there. 

I only took fried chicken with rice. But Papa and Mamarazzi had the Ikan Patin with tempoyak. Wah... Mamarazzi said super spicy but nice.  Can't stop eating. 

Spicy ah... had to cool down the tongue with an ice cream or two. 

As we start journey again, I was hungry again. Found the nasi minyak that Mamarazzi packed for me in the morning.  Second round of lunch. 

As I was having my second round of lunch, Papa and Mamarazzi went to buy Patin fish to bring home, 

Tummy full...happy already... can zzz now. Can continue our journey home.

Stop by Bukit Tinggi to buy  steamed peanuts and some raw peanuts. Don't know why the peanuts here taste nicer.

Arrived home around 8pm. Traffic was rather heavy. The dog was super happy to come home after a few days in boarding. Tail wagging non-stop. 

Next day, stayed home and rest coz school re-opens on Monday.... sobs....

March-Books Sale, Trip and Balik Kampung

I thought we were done with March but it seems not. Mamarazzi was tempted by members in FB to go for Popular sale at Viva. She went to Popular Starling and Borders sale without me. So when I heard she wanna go to Popular sale at Viva, die die I also wanna follow. 

On the way there, stopped and refuel. A friend text her saying that COSTA COFFEE is offering free coffee at SHELL petrol station. Ngum ngum we were there. Just nice. I managed to get a cup of free chocolate drink for myself and one iced latte for Papa. Hey, the Iced Chocolate drink taste very good leh. 

Arrived at Viva, we split up. I went hunting for my books and Mamarazzi went hunting for my books(LOL).

Seems like at Viva the offer is better than Starling . A lot of RM20 for 5 books around. We managed to find a lot of good books

I found the books I wanted too and some stationery. Some have 90% discount tags.

Since its so cheap, Mamarazzi also bought some for friends' kids

Here Mamarazzi managed to find a few books for herself. Choice not as good as Starling but better than when compared to previous year , zero. 

Mamarazzi didn't expect to be able to get that many good books  but we end up with a few bags full. Not bad ..not bad at all.

Didn't bring enough recycle bags. Had to buy a recycle bag from them as they don't have plastic bags nor box.

 Can't wait for dig into my new books. 

That day, we also managed to get Secret Recipe "buy 2 Free 1" offer. Nice to have cake while reading. 

The next day, I went for a trip. 

We visited Yakult Factory, Seremban Cultural Museum and play at Funtopia. It was super duper fun. Didn't snap any photos coz Mamarazzi don't let me bring camera. the photos are from my teacher. 

Came back from trip, I  was hyper. Can't sleep but next morning had to wake up at 4.30am. 

Yup... off we went. Back to hometown we go. Brought along a pillow so that I can sleep in the car. It's a 6 hours journey but in between we did stopped to have breakfast with our friends. Forgotten to snap photos of the nice nasi lemak and nasi minyak that we had.

Stopped awhile to visit Papa's colleague and saw some oil palm trees. Picked up and oil palm seed.

We finally reached our destination around 1pm.... but 1st stop....Losong... to buy yummy Keropok Lekor from Keropok Warisan Losong Shop. Wah... this shop is getting famous leh. Foreigners also know to come and eat here.

Hot... hot... hot...but it's so... so... so... YUMMY....

That night we went to Warung Katana for dinner. No photos coz was too dark and hungry. We had fried Sotong(squid), fried keropok Lekor, grilled fish, vegetables, noodle, ABC , drinks and it cost RM77 only.

Shall I continue this post? I think better not... need to break it into 2 posts as many more photos to come. So see you again soon.
