Quiet weekend ....

It was Mother's Day over the last weekend but we bring forward the celebrations to next week as my SIL's son couldn't make it on a Sunday evening. We usually celebrate together for the two mothers, my wifey and my SIL since both families are small. The weekend was quite quiet as my son prepared for his mid-year assessment and it will be a tedious week for him. Thus, we didn't really go anywhere except going out for meals and run our errands quick.

I went for a jog for 5KM on a Sunday evening though my muscles are still aching and sore after 2 days since I did a 12KM run last Thursday evening. I wonder why it takes so long to recover...hahha.. I guess I need to strengthen my legs in the gym.

However, I still managed to catch a nice dinner at Pekin Restaurant at Taman Sentosa , JB on a rainy last Friday after I got back from SG. I am sure it is fully pack over there tonight.

Herbal Chicken -  This is one of their signature dish

Pork Ribs King ... my favourite! Love the sweet sauce!

Their signature tofu ... with a blend of spinach on top

Four seasons beans in teriyaki sauce ... usually our favourite dish

And a fried mee which we pack away the extra. Their fried noodles was also quite good,
Have a good week and Happy Mother's Day to all moms!

  1. Looks good! :)

    We celebrated Mother's Day yesterday but will do another one next week too. It's one big bunch together with everyone, so that's good since you can eat and order more.

  2. Nice dinner. Love all the dishes. The signature tofu is unique with green spinach on one end.

    Hope you guys have a lovely Mother's Day dinner this weekend.

    And good luck to your son in his assessment. My girl would be having her exam next week so dont think we would be going anywhere this weekend.

  6. This tofu seems to be a new trend in KL where I have eaten the whole pieces in green! They are so nice and different.
    Your muscles are still aching cos you hardly exercised and run that distance. If Lina runs 42km, she would wake up painless and still run another 42km the next weekend.

  12. "bring forward the celebrations to next week"?? a little confusion with "bring" vs "next" in this context.. anyway, you still have a rather "feast full" celebration there woh.. look at the dishes!!!

    1. Sk - hahaha... mind my language. It should be "carry forward". I blogged this during late nights thus a bit of grammar mistakes and there.
