time for family.....

Weekends are always nice and I am looking forward to this weekend since I am taking a half-day off today. Initially, I thought of taking a day off but due to a meeting in the morning, I have no choice but to take the afternoon off. It was also the end of my kid's exam and I look forward to bring them around. I always likes to bring my family out during weekends to give my wifey a breather for taking care of the kids while let the kids wind down from their studies too. Even me too, I love to drive around during weekends and I don't mind driving farther up north to smaller towns like Kluang, Yong Peng or even to the west like Pontian or Kukup to enjoy their food and getaway. Family time are always the best. :)

Meanwhile, my colleague and I went to Aston Grill in Katong and had a good time with steaks. I like Aston steaks, it's not too expensive and delicious. They even set up their business in food courts.

Chicken chop with sausages ... ordered by my colleague.

I had a Sirloin steak with side dishes of salad and red beans.

Since Aston was celebrating their 49th anniversary, we top-up $4.90 for a ice-lemon tea and a chocolate ice-cream.

The muddy chocolate ice-cream was nice as there were walnuts inside but its too frozen till it's too hard to scoop it. It took us a while to finish it!!

Anyway, have a nice weekend, folks! :)
