Weekend Dinner Cooked with Love, Enjoyed by Family

Oh what a Saturday feast!

Oh what a Saturday feast!

Oh, did I mention that my wife is an excellent cook? Maybe that is stating the obvious, judging from the photographs on display and the fact that I gained more than 30 kilograms after meeting her. Now I’m suffering trying to lose my excess weight…. but well, I can’t complain much, I’ve been having it too good already 🙂 I’ll be posting pictures of my home-cooked dinners from time to time, to make all of you salivate. Well, if you really can’t resist anymore, then you can make an appointment to come to my place for dinner. Just give my wife a nice big Ang Pow for her efforts! 🙂 I can assure you, good home-cooked food is priceless…

Our dinner for the recent Saturday’s gastronomical delight: Pineapple Rice, Egg rolls with Minced Meat, Sliced Beef Rolls with Oyster Mushrooms and other Veggies, Baked chicken with Secret Herbs and Spices… I don’t know which spices, hence the “secret” label. 😛

Performances from Hillgrove Graduation Night 2012

School performances are never perfect, always rough at the edges, but always entertaining, and always bringing out cheers from the audience, especially when the performers include their teachers, principals and vice-principals!

So here are the special items from the Hillgrove Graduation Night 2012, with

(1) Bubbly, by Colbie Caillat, performed by Miss Siti Hajar and me

(2) I’ve Gotta Feeling, by BEP, performed by the teachers band, featuring my school leaders and teachers

(3) Miles Away, by Madonna, performed by Amir Mirza and me

Please pardon my playing of the Cajon Drum, I was a last minute replacement, and I got a little excited 🙂

 

McDonald’s >> This is not the way to do “Charity!”

I completely believe that MINDS is a worthwhile cause to champion and that many of the kids there really need help, and any funds donated to the organisation has the potential to change many needy lives for the better.

But PLEASE, PLEASE don’t buy the McDonald’s Prosperity Meal because you want to “give generously” to MINDS, you will be only giving generously to McDonald’s profits! Only 10 cents per meal is given to MINDS. If you really want to support this worthwhile cause, forgo the entire Prosperity Meal and give that 6 dollars directly to MINDS! By all means, buy the meal if you like the burger, but do not be fooled into thinking you are doing charity just because you are buying the meal!

Honestly, I’m rather disappointed in McDonald’s for using this 10 cents per meal pledge to ask your patrons to “Please give generously and help us spread the joy of Prosperity this New Year.” If you really believe in that statement, you would be pledging all profits from the Prosperity Meal to MINDS… which I’m sure is a lot more than just 10 cents per meal.
