The One With Happy Belated Mum’s Day

Posted in Family on May 17, 2009 by steve maestro

“All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother” – Abraham Lincoln

Mummy with her usual charming smile.

And I thought I had a post up for Mother’s Day. Sorry mum for neglecting you here in this blog. I hate to say so but darn my busy schedule and my hectic life. Sorry that I could not spend more time with you, and even if I could sorry that I could only go as far as sending you to Carrefour for your weekly spending splurges. Let’s do another movie again sometime later okay? But for now, Happy Mother’s Day to you, Mum. You’re the best mum in the whole world. Thanks for your proper caring and love that you have blessed me with. Thanks for the random things that you will give me once in awhile (she gave me a pen knife to ‘protect’ myself not long ago). Thanks for always giving me food whenever I’m hungry on weekends. Thanks for being the domestic leader of the home, without you, half of our household items won’t even be functioning right now. Thanks for giving me random articles from the newspaper (infertility rates gone up, rape cases gone up, etc. etc. … come to think of it, why in the world she showed it to me?).

Caught in the action. I bought A&W home one day for my dad cuz he had the craving for it, and mum took a piece of the waffle and stuffed it in her mouth.

You’re the best mum in the whole world. Did I mentioned that already?



The One With The CF Dinner and The Workplace

Posted in Family, Food, My experiences, Overdue Posts, Wonderful Things on December 26, 2008 by steve maestro

Greetings to all humans! Yes this site is not dead, it IS still pretty much alive… but just that I’ve not been doing a very good job in keeping it ‘alive’… anyways… some overdue things to be mentioned here.

The uni’s CF Reunion Dinner at Bukit Jalil Resort. Was basically a overdressed dinner meeting with friends you couldn’t care less to dress up to meet. But it was good nonetheless, some CF old timers was there, and we were entertained with various performances and the not-so-good-not-so-bad food. And of course, I went with her:

The only nice picture of me and her without looking odd. You look great on that night, ya know?


Yeah, so I worked at Nielsen for the whole of November month as a dumb and numb brainless zombie data entry worker… of course, working under my wacky mum and with her as well. Kinda miss the place somehow…

The awesome Chee Cheong Fun I ate almost every morning.

When not working she pouts her lips and does weird poses like this pose.

Wacky wacky mummy. She stole the hairband btw…

Alrighty, that’s the lil update for now… and oh yeah, last but not least…:

A MERRY BELATED CHRISTMAS and A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL! May the year 2009 be a fantabulously rockin’ year for you guys!

The One With The Heartache…

Posted in Emo Moments, Family on January 27, 2008 by steve maestro

I did not get dumped or anything (how can one be dumped if one does not have anyone to dump them to begin with?)… nor did anything silly or bad happened…

*flashbacks to primary days…

Student: Oi budak gemuk!!! (Hey Fat Kid!!!)

Me:??? (question marks)

Student: Nama engkau ni kelakar la, Lam FOOT Seng. Nama kaki!!! ( Your name is so funny, name with foot)

Me: Err… err…

Student (now with other students): HAHAHAHAHAH!!!! FOOT Seng! FOOT Seng. Lam Put Seng!!! Eh? Boleh guna Lampu Sing jugak!!! Haha… Lampu Pusing, Lampu Pusing… (too long for translations)…

Me: *emo and turns away…

That was a few years back… and now…


No… no… no!!!!!!!!

Ok, seriously, UCSI’s CF’s Blog HERE.

Cool bunch of people, and cool site too, check it out…

On another note, I just got back from PD with my mum. Will post about it soon…

Now I’m just gonna go… sit down in one dark corner… and cry… FOOT Seng signing out…

(Overdue Post Collections) The One Where My Cousin Got Married

Posted in Family, Overdue Posts on January 15, 2008 by steve maestro

The only female cousin that I have among father’s two brothers got married on the 21st October, held at the Tropicana Golf Resort somewhere in the Damansara Utama area. 

The resort was beautiful and parking was a breeze too (no coupons, no plastic coins and stuff, ample parking space).

It was a typical Chinese wedding dinner, with the typical 7 or 8 course meal, the typical spokesperson for the night overseeing and emcee-ing for the whole night, and the typical ‘Yam Seng’ (which means Cheers in English), the first Yam Seng is for the couple, the second Yam Seng is for the offspring and the rest of it is for the number of tables the couple had to go around Yam Seng-ing with.

Here are some pictures from the night (was busy eating and greeting/being greeted by random relatives that I don’t even know I have). 


Mum and Dad. 


My dad’s brother (my uncle), mum and my dad’s sister (my aunt). 


Picture in the menu. 


Bowls, glasses, utensils for the night. And oh yeah, free flow of red wine too. 


My uncle’s family and my mum. 


The beautiful cousin and the relatives. 

Unfortunately for me, I’m not a relative loving kinda person, I mean I do love them and will care for them as much as I could but… just not the oh-I-will-melt-at-the-sight-of-you-in-some-random-wedding-or-funeral-or-celebration kinda person.

So, here’s to the newlyweds (not so new now… it’s already 2008)! May I soon have a nephew/niece to play with. Oh gosh, I can’t imagine how much I will pamper him/her next time.

Posted in Family, Overdue Posts, Wonderful Things on January 15, 2008 by steve maestro

I’ve never had any chance to show my dad how much I appreciate him for in my life. Without you, I can barely move into the position of where I am today. To my dad, I love you so much.

Daddy’s birthday at 1st December 2007, celebrating 51 years of excellence.
