Story of a pair of brown court shoes

Two weeks ago I went searching for a pair of brown shoes for Fiona. I thought it would be difficult to find one in Kuching as Fiona and Eunice have been looking for it at nearly shops they could remember back home. God is good to me and He is always good He guided me to the place straight away. I did not have to spend a lot of time searching for the shoes.

I asked the promoter for size 37. At first I thought 37 is size 5. She told me they still have 37 but not 36. I replied it was alright as I was looking for size 37. Then I called Fiona if she wanted the shoes. I spent a lot of time thinking to buy or not. Unfortunately I couldn't show her the photo of the shoes. I was afraid it size might not fit her feet so after several messages sent to Fiona I cancelled my plan to buy the shoes.

Then yesterday, my housemate asked me whether I want to have lunch at the Spring or not. I was reluctant at first because it was raining non stop since early in the morning. But the rain stopped at 9 something in the morning so we carried on our plan to go to The Spring. I've no intention to buy or find any brown shoes again as Fiona already bought a pair in Ipoh. The moment we arrived the shopping complex, I went to look for a pair of slippers for myself. Suddenly I twisted my right foot a little due to clumsiness. So I just sat at a nearby seat and looked around for any right choice of slippers. Then I saw one side of the brown shoes again. The one I nearly bought the other day.

The promoter just straight away went to the store room and took size 36 shoes for me and asked me was me who ordered the pair of shoes. I was surprised and told her indeed I was interested in them last two weeks but I did not ask her to order any of the sizes for me. When I opened the box, guess it was size 36 and I said to her. Why is it number 36 is size 5 and not 37. She told me it is local size. Different countries different sizes.

After thinking hard in the end I told the promoter maybe she misunderstood me the other time as I did not have any thoughts of getting the shoes. As I walked out from Parkson, I sms Fiona again. After sending her a few messages in the end I went back and bought the brown shoes. Hope Fiona will like this shoes and fit her feet.

Brown court shoes are not all that common at all as most of the colors I've seen are mostly black or white. Hope this pair is a good working shoes for her to go to work.

Marble will be leaving us

Marble will be leaving tomorrow. Soon she will have a new owner and a new name. Heard she will be shifting to her new home in Ipoh Garden South behind Pizza Hut. When can we see her again. Very slim chance we will be able to meet and play with her again. Thinking of Marble, my heart breaks. Will be missing her a lot but we could do nothing to avoid all this to happen. Although I love pets but we already have two lovely pets at home so we have no choice but to bid farewell to marble and hope she will be happy with her new owner. Fiona already taken many pictures of her for rememberance. I forgot to ask her to take a short clip of video of Marble. How could I not remember.
More about Marble our new friend in our neighborhood
When I first saw Marble I thought will can be neighbors for years and never came little to my mind that she will have to leave us to a new home. Have not given anything to Marble except for a bowl I used to put water for the Elles. Forgot to take a picture of the bowl. All it matters is we remember to take many pictures of Marble. Do not forget us, our dear new friend no matter where your new home is, okay!!

That will be all about Marble. I do not know when we will be seeing her again.

Sleepy moments of the Elles

It's been many days since I last see both of them. Miss them so much. Today it's another Sunday. Got nothing to do so I thought maybe I will just upload some pictures of the Elles.

When I took their pictures the other day, both of them were sleeping soundly. I gave a yell at them so that they will look fresh when I snap their pictures. But just look at them. They don't look alert at all. They must be wondering what was the fuss about. Pictures again? So boring to them. I don't think they like their pictures to be taken at all. They don't have a cheerful look here.

Perhaps the next time, I will first offer them treats. Good idea?

How have both of you been today on Sunday, 4.02 pm? See you all real soon. Be good okay!

Latest photos of Elsa and Elly they are awake when these pictures were taken.

Brown shoes and lunch at Xian Ding Wei Taiwanese Tea Room

Woke up quite early this morning and waiting for time to search for brown shoes. What shoes is her size? All I know is 41/2 is 36 and 5 is 37 for women size shoes. But which size belongs to her. After looking around for quite some time at Parkson The Spring, I was unsure whether to buy so I just leave it till tomorrow noon.

Felt a little hungry and went to look for food. Look what I had for lunch. A nice delicious meal at Xian Ding Wei Taiwanese Tea Room.

After lunch I went back to see the brown shoes again. Will be here again tomorrow to have a look one more time whether I should buy or not. Maybe there isn't any correct size anymore as there might be no more stock.

Till another time another post.

Power Rangers Samurai & Madame Alexander Toys with Happy Meal

So what's for lunch. Wanted to buy Madame Alexander Toy (Gretel) since February 8, 2012. I was told that I could only buy the toy from February 9, 2012. The next day I went to Boulevard with my housemate hoping to have lunch at McDonalds. Failed again? Today was the 3rd attempt I tried to buy the toy and I was glad in the end I do not have to try for 4th attempt.
More on what happened for the past two days about my experienced to go to McDonalds

A free Power Rangers Samurai (Superhero Action) and Madame Alexander (Fairytale Classics) toys with any purchase of Happy Meal set.

At last I managed to buy Gretel for my neighbor's daughter free with the purchase of Happy Meal Set and not only that. We also ordered Prosperity Burger McValue Lunch Set at RM12.05. So we went there at 12.00 pm sharp. After we paid the cashier and found a place to sit I turned around at the counter and there are so many people queueing to buy their meals.

Had a good contented lunch. Will be here again around the same time next Thursday or Friday.

Exciting Fairytale Classics toys with McDonald's Happy Meal

So fast it's another day again. Ever since I got back from the West I've been dreaming to eat McDonald meal set. The first time I wanted to buy Gretel, I was told I could only buy this cute Fairytale Classics toy on February 9, 2012 which is today. Then I went to Boulevard and this time I failed again. When I reached there then only I realized there isn't any McDonald at Boulevard. How silly I was. After staying so many years nearby here I did not even know what fast food they have there. Then I had no choice but to postpone buying Gretel tomorrow during lunch time. After walking for quite a while at the food outlets I decided to eat at Kenny Rogers Restaurant. What I ordered? Just scroll down and the answer is there.

I was a bit disappointed to know that Gretel will only be able from February 9, 2012. Then I just had a simple Kolo Mee, Kuching famous noodles. Costs RM3.00. Cheap.

This was what I had. When the guy took the Kolo Mee to me, I wanted to laugh due to the decoration of meat balls. One at every corner. First time I am seeing how Kolo Mee was served. Regarding about the taste, well I gave it a pass. Not bad though. Instead of buying Gretel toy at RM3.00, I had this instead yesterday.

Roasted ¼ chicken with 1 side dish & 1 Kenny's Home-made Muffin.. Can't see the muffin? Actually I've eaten the muffin. Ha!ha! I chose orange flavor. After finishing the chicken I suddenly realized I did not have any drinks yet so I just asked for a glass of plain warm water.

In the beginning I ordered 2 pieces of chicken drumsticks with 1 side dish & 1 Kenny's Home-made Muffin @ RM14.90, but I was given Roasted ¼ chicken with 1 side dish & 1 Kenny's Home-made Muffin @ RM13.50 instead. Anyway it was okay, I finished and enjoyed the meal as I was very hungry at that time already and did not bother to ask further.
Kenny's Special Quarter Meal (1) - 13.50

We will miss Marble!

Hello, this is Marble our new neighbor's dog from Johor Bahru. All the way from JB. She is so cute and adorable but shy but she is more friendly to us nowadays. Maybe she has adjusted her new life at her new home here. Marble and Nickie/Blackie used to be neighbors too until this morning when they were taken back to Pasir Pinji. So Marble has less two friends now. I wonder what breed Marble is. She looks like Dalmation Mix. Wonder how old she is now.

Soon, Marble will be leaving us too. Heard that she will be given to another family. I wish our neighbor will continue to keep her. But if she is leaving our neighborhood I will have less another friend. This morning Nickie and Blackie just left us and soon it will be Marble.

Marble we will miss you dearly. Please don't go!
