By adding more and more family members to Tam’s family, Cheah’s family, Lee’s family and Ng’s family, making our family gathering or a simple dinner merrier and merrier. At the same time, more and more tables need to be reserve to fit all of us, except if we are gathering in someone’s house. Phewwww ~ Quite a headache too everytime in deciding where to go for family outing. One table is definitely not enough, but sometime 2 tables are more than enough. But, I bet sooner the members can fill up 2 tables as the toddlers are getting older, while babies are getting bigger.
Back to the celebration dinner, Crab becomes our main dish since we choose Fatty Crab for our event. Not only crabs, they are selling quite a number of famous dishes such as Chicken Wings, Bread Loaf that used to dip with crab’s paste, Fried Rice, Century Egg and Satay.
All of us reach around 7:00pm, considering the traffic to Taman Megah together with the night market (pasar malam) on the same day, same place. We chat and laugh while enjoying our crab. There is a trademark joke that we used to say every time we eat crab.
There is once where my nephew who is still small that time (about 7~8 years old) asked to my mom “Ma-ma, you “POK” crab ah?”. And since then this phrase will always be used to illustrate the action of hamming the crab to get the meat. So, if you get the chance to join CRAB festival with our family, you will hear these phrases very often throughout the session:
“Please pass me the hammer; I want to POK the crab!” – followed by laugh for those who mis-understand the POK meaning...
“Why so hard to POK this crab one!” - followed by laugh too
“Yeh-yeh (grandfather), could you help me to POK this crab?” – you will laugh even louder when you hear it from toddler or small kids. *fainted*
“Faster faster pass me the hammer; I can’t wait to POK yeh!” - Damn~ this is not good for toddlers to learn right.
After all the POK-YEH session, we finished our gathering dinner at around 930pm, and went home with bloated stomach which full with crabs, rice, chicken wings and bread. Frankly, I don’t eat much because somehow my stomach doesn’t feel good that night. Just grab little fried rice and eat most of the century egg. Anyway, thanks KFC for the F.O.C treat! !
Map and Address for Fatty Crab, Taman Megah
The Lourdes is located at Shah Alam, Section 26, very near to my company. It has quite a number of “visitors” everyday provided the “chef” is here. Sometime the “visitors” will need to sit together in a bench waiting their turn to see the “chef” for the “food” recommendation for the day. This proven how good business the Lourdes is. WTF!!! Ok ok…some of you might know where and what is Lourdes already.
Lourdes is the name of the clinic which was located nearby Spansion. I fall sick yesterday by having constant cough/sore throat together with serious flu. My nose almost torn off due to constant rubbing and sneezing. I used the new box of tissue which I brought to office last week. When I see the amount of tissues in a new box, it stated there 100 pcs! WTF!! I used almost 100 pcs of tissues in a day?!! Can’t u imagine how suffer my nose was.
So to make sure I don’t continue to consume all the tissue bought by mom, I decided to drop by company panel clinic to get some medication to cure my flu and sore throat. At the same, who knows I might become the potential A (H1N1) carrier! Choooiii! Touch wood! Anyway, I got the medicine for flu, fever, and cough.
After took the “dinner meal” from Lourdes, I fall asleep from 6pm continue until this morning 6am. WTF ! I slept for 12 hours! Anyway, I still need to consume the meal from Lourdes to make sure I’m cured 100%. And don’t worry friends, don’t worry friends, I’m recovering, and doctor said “Don’t worry, not H1N1 *for now*!”. And for bloggers who read this, don’t worry too because H1N1 won’t spread through blog. WTF!!!
