Being nice :) ....

I think I had a good long weekend over the Labour Day holidays. I worked from home on last Wednesday and had dinner at home where my wife cooked, instead of my usual eating outside after work. The weekend was well-spent though it's the usual routines like shopping and cari makan.  However, I always realised that I seldom helped out on house-work and over the last weekend, I really did a lot like washing the plates after meals, boiled water, cleaning up and vacuuming the floor. And, not forgetting the fun part, bathing the kids. On top of that, I also drove my sis in law to enquire about her new car and helping her out with some IT stuffs. I guess the best part was really helping out. The Saturday evening church service was great though it was raining heavily but refreshing!! It was also my kid's return to the church school after a month.

Thus on last Sunday, I rewarded myself with a nice tea time at Lavender Bistro. My son was at school thus we brought our little princess along. And she had her favourite strawberry short cake again!

It looks yummy and was really yummy...!! Lots of strawberries in the slice of cake.
 My wife and I shared some kaya toasts. It was freshly toasted and was crunchy! The pandan kaya makes the toast even nicer!!

Kaya Toasts - Light enough for a refreshing break
As for me, I had my usual coffee, and I ordered a cappuccino this time round.  I noticed Lavender has changed their cup and the size seems smaller but the coffee remains fine.

My cuppa of cappuccino
Have a good week, folks!
