Today, we had a gathering at the Chews.. The Tohs couldn’t join us so there were only the Tans and Laus together with my family..
We went there after lunch and reached at about 3pm.. The kids made themselves comfortable and started playing Nerf guns in the room.. Of cos, the ‘hoverboard’ that the Chews bought recently was a hot item.. The adults chatted while the kids played in the room..
Brenda made reservations at Melben Seafood restaurant near their place.. It’s apparently a very popular place to go as there was a long queue for walk-ins and even though she made a reservation, we had to wait for a while..
The kids took one table while we occupied the other.. Thankfully the kids are old enough to feed themselves.. We simply served them fried rice and some other dishes as we ate.. The kids had a good time playing games while eating.. I think they really enjoyed one another’s company..
After dinner, we went to try some chendol which I think is on par with those sold in Malacca.. The gula melaka serving was generous, the chendol was soft and the red beans were big and sweet.. We bought 4 to share as we were all rather full..
When we were bidding one another goodbye, the kids were reluctant to leave and some even suggested staying.. Of cos, we didn’t allow that or Brenda would go crazy!! Lol..
It was a great 1st day of 2016.. Let’s hope the new year will be filled with lotsa love, joy and blessings!!
