What A Lovely Surprise!

The Piggies were back for the weekend and Daddy told me on Saturday morning not to cook for lunch " Let's eat out" Whoa...I was thinking...for once I will be served ! He even asked me where I would like to have lunch and straight away I told him Sun Marpoh in Ipoh Garden. My mind was already thinking of some of their signature dishes that my Piggies would love to have and of course mine too. See, when one doesn't need to cook, one tends to order like a glutton :p I told Daddy I would love to try their out signature Roast Pork Knuckles...:)) and each of us get to order his or her's favourite dish. Piggy Boy ordered 2 of his favourite dishes, their signature tofu dish ( Kwai Fei Tofu) and Sweet And Sour Fried Chicken, Piggy Gal as usual ordered her favourite Veggie Prawns Curry and Dad ordered the Stir-fry Veggie With Salted Fish ( Choy Thum Chow Hum Yue ) and before the food arrived we took some family's been quite a while since we took pictures together.....and below are the food we ordered and enjoyed tremendously.... a wonderful simple lunch !

It is not my style to blog about what we eat out ,here on my blog , but for this once I have to blog about it coz it's special...not the food but the thought of some loving persons...haha I will come to it later....

This veggie tasted something like brussels sprout
with crunchy texture
it's called ' Choy Thum Chow Hum Yue' in Cantonese
Stir-Fry Choy Thum With Salted Fish...yummy

This dish is called 'Chi Loh Kon Chien Kai' in Cantonese
Deep Fried Chicken Coated With Sweet Sour Sauce

Piggy gal's favourite...Veggie Prawns Curry... I love this too!

Piggy Boy 's favourite.... ' Kwai Fei Tofu ' in Cantonese
the restaurant's signature dish...the homemade tofu
with smooth and silky texture...yumm yumm

Deep Fried Mantou supposed to be taken together with
the Roast Pork Knuckles and the starch like sauce

this is my favourite but I don't get to eat this often
becoz it is artery clogging...hmmm and for this occasion the Piggies
allowed me to order it...strange @@

look how crispy this is...crispy on the outside and
moist and juicy and tasty on the inside....well done

Before leaving for the restaurant to have our lunch and while waiting for Daddy to be ready,...we had some fun taking photos of ourselves...:) and we had lots of fun together. Yup, the sweet old lady is me, Elin , the super Momsie ! :))) and the sweet young lady is Piggy Gal, Jo and the handsome young sir is Piggy Boy, Josh.

haha , yup that's Elin and Piggy gal :)))
I am 25 ( forever ;p ) and she is 21 :p

the 3 to take pics together

He is 19 and I am 25 LOL!

and finally ,the other half shows his appearance :))
the 'young and handsome' Daddy ;p

Daddy told me that lunch was a treat from my Piggies…whoa.. what a lovely surprise! For my coming birthday….which is a few days away. The Piggies will be back in college then so they intended to celebrate my birthday earlier…ohhhh…how sweet and thoughtful of them. I was so touched by their kind gesture.
I thought I would celebrate my birthday with just Daddy on the day, so did not make a cake. My Piggies really know how to spring a surprise on me. So, after lunch I rushed home and baked a cake for the early celebration LOL! And true to my title ‘ super Momsie ' , I managed to bake a nice chocolate cheese sandwich in time for our after dinner dessert . Will post up the cake in my next post.
Thank you Piggies for such a wonderful lunch . That would have taken a big chunk out of your pocket money ;p * I love you Piggies **
Stay tuned for more photos of the last minute birthday cake :))))
