I'm satisfied with this phone cover. I got it from the night market on Monday. Found by chance when we headed to the porridge place and found the bustling night market in front of the shop, and the porridge shop closed for rest on a Monday.
A day before we had a futile trip to Brem Mall for a phone cover. Was disappointed because I couldn't find one with a potential stand. They had a poor selection of ugly phone covers done shoddily and in a horrendous cheap red.
Well now here I have one. The clear cover has a silver edge. Which makes it very nice and classy. The snoopy stand was optional, we had a great many of choices and it was between snoopy or the pink cupcake. Snoopy won the day.

This restaurant is clean and brightly lit. A plus point. The porridge did take its time coming to the table. And we were the only customers for porridge so I'm thinking on a normal day, the lady would have to either speed up the cooking process or warn customers it'll be a long wait. Was it worth the wait? Yes. It didn't disappoint. And I'll be returning to this place for porridge very soon.

We walked pass this Chinese restaurant and saw the crowd inside and the decoration like so. Earlier at the parking, we had seen the wedding car. So this wasn't a surprise. Brem Mall only has one decent Chinese restaurant so this must be the wedding dinner celebration. We didn't see the bride or groom. But we did get a glimpse of what they look like, the photographers put a box of pictures outside the restaurant presumably this is free advertising for them and a chance for the guests to take a moment each to remember this day.

|Voter registration booth|
For us voting involves two separate venues, the first is for the parents ( after they are done...usually there isn't a queue because we are out early) and then we drive a short distance to another school for me to vote. ( voting venues are schools in my hometown and most other towns as well I believe)My venue is usually full of people. There's a big of queuing involved but things usually move along smoothly and we're back in a little over an hour to rest and be proud we have done our bit.
Today, the Church of the Risen Christ organised a booth to register for voting and it was opened after the morning mass today and closes at 11am. A very good idea. Now there isn't any excuse not to be registered and not to vote.

|Fried Fish Cake|
|I think this is called belacan fried rice. ( No fancy name)|
We had good food ( see picture as proof) and good company. Some were meeting for the first time but have heard of each other before through my late grandmother. We also FaceTime my other aunt in Singapore who insisted she wanted to see us all too. I think one of the good things coming out of Facebook is getting people to be in touch. Seeing posts and updates and pictures are important. When we did meet up, we just got on with the talking with no fuss.

Lesson learnt: always keep spare cash in your purse. Also don't buy too many cupcakes. It's bad for health

I feel like a fool. I told almost everyone I was flying to Kota Baru this weekend for a talk. I cancelled my violin class. I stayed up late working furiously to prepare for the two talks. I got crabby and worried during my illness last weekend whether I would recover in time to fly and walk. Only to find out today that I got the dates wrong. I'll be flying next Friday and not tomorrow. For some reason, my mind was convinced it was this weekend. I checked the air ticket two nights back but checked the flying out times and flying back times rather than the date.
What a silly billy.
|Dry pan mee|
We have tried this ( dry pan mee) where you can pick the thickness of the noodles ( I like that we have this option), the soup pan mee, which is a big potion but I remember struggling to finish it, the trio platter which is a firm favourite.
The platter comes with three different things, gold coins, fried fucuk and lobak. The fried fucuk and the gold coins are what I like best. The lobak isn't so nice. A bit chewy in the middle and not enough meat inside. This branch in publika is located above Thai Tuk Tuk, at the exit nearer Chawan.
