Thing turns out better if we less expecting it to be?

30 NOV 2008: It was a lovely Sunday where I've spent another whole day with family. I do noticed that I've been spending less time with family lately especially on weekend due to some personal stuff, and I do felt sorry about it. Being together with them during these 2 days made me realized how important are they to me, and how much joy I've been missing for the past few weeks. Guess I'm another family man...:)

Anyway, we went to A Yat Abalone restaurant in Avenue K for dim sum breakfast. Frankly speaking, I didn't really expect the dim sum to be good as dim sum isn't their specialty by looking at the restaurant's name itself. However, it turned out to be so good that dim sum was fantastic and fresh with good services given by the waitress. Hence, I couldn't help but wonder whether thing normally turns out better if we less expecting it to be? There were times where I had very bad disappointments when I put too much expectation on something that ended with disasters. But a friend of mine used to tell me, life without expectation is like a sea without wave...we ain't go anywhere.

Anyhow, the breakfast cost us a bomb, but it was priceless to be together with someone we love.




We hopped over to KLCC after the breakfast for some foot exercises. There's a gigantic nicely decorated Christmas tree at the Center Court of KLCC, which has attracted huge amount of tourists for photography. And I did take some photos for sure. This is the biggest Christmas tree I've seen so far for this year. Do you know anywhere with bigger Christmas tree?

Spending time with family and loved ones are always precious. You know many times we forget how time flies ... and how precious they are .. I always remind myself to tell my family that I love them .. coz I never know what will happen next...it might be too late.

And it is true .. things happen when we less expect. Many times we are disappointed when we expect.

Take k man

Cheers

Whooa! The tree was really big in your photo! I must go over to see with my own eyes. I always avoided Ah Yat as their whole menu is a bomb piece! I have been waiting for a free treat but never got it. You're lucky that you get to see you family so often unlike out station fellas like us.

K|E|E|N|Y|E|E said...

TZ: I was in KLCC from 11am till 3pm. Hehe, perhaps you were at the other side of that gigantic tree.

Twilight Zone: It's pretty huge, but not that nicely decorated though. They can do it better. Appreciation is much more important than seeing everyday. :)

What a good boi! :)

Ah Yat has special promotions on their dimsum fm Mon-Sat. This "touch-the-heart" meal can be pretty expensive affair.

Anton: Good boi? Hehe, particular days lo. It's absolutely acceptable to have expensive affair once in a while, especially early of the month la..hehe

you guys just love shopping! everyone seems to be in KLCC on a Sunday!

giant trees with pretty ornaments always makes us very berry cherry merry...
The one in Sunway Pyramid this year, was, quite scary.. Personally, I don't like it, I felt like in a CNY-theme Christmas mood.

K|E|E|N|Y|E|E said...

[SK]: Hey, now I sounded like a "Hooker". Hehe, keep hooking around.

Meg: It's Year End Sales, I know you're one of those great shopper. Have you done any shopping lately?

meglittlemeg said...
