Random Shots

Some random shots of the kids! Been using the Instagram app on my iPhone 5 to edit pics. Love it! Pic above is Marissa enjoying her ducky sugar cookie.

My kids - fans of Boost juice. Recently hubby had free Boost juice in their What's Ya Name promotion.

RAD Ballet Primary in Dance Exam

Evan took his RAD ballet Primary in Dance (PID) Exam recently. Pic above - getting his hair done for the exam at Sole to Soul Dance Studio (STSDS). About a month earlier, he took his trial exam. 

All ready! Final pose with his ballet teacher: Miss Alice Yap Cui Xin. Now, he's graduated to Grade 1. It's been almost 2 yrs since he started ballet lessons. I still remember the days when he could not do his splits during stretching time (cos he's not very flexible) but nowadays, he can do it without yelping in pain. All it takes is practice and perseverence. At times he told me he wants to stop ballet because he doesn't like stretching (due to the pain) but I know he enjoys dancing with his friends during the lessons so I encourage him to continue. Now that he can stretch better, he does not complain any more. 

As for Marissa, she has also graduated, but from baby ballet to Pre-primary in Dance  (PPID). She will take her exam next year. 

*Update: Evan obtained a distinction (79%) for his PID ballet exam, scoring a perfect 10 in the creative dance routine.

My Burger Lab

This was our 3rd visit to My Burger Lab since we discovered it this year. Averaging our visits here once a month! Any more frequent, and my waist line will increase rapidly. My Burger Lab specializes in gourmet burgers made with charcoal burger buns which are so soft and yummy! Their location is in a small shoplot in PJ (14, Jln 21/22, Seapark). Opening hours are daily from 5pm onwards. Closed on Mondays. Be prepared to queue and also to wait for a table. 

The Hulk! Charcoal buns with beef patty, fried avocadoes, sunny side up, lettuce, cherry tomatoes and salsa sauce. Very very delicious!

This one is Say Cheese (Beef) with an add on i.e. hash brown. Lots of add-ons available (scroll down for menu) and hash browns are just one of them.

Hubby couldn't resist ordering this one: Vivien's Husband which is a burger from the vegetarian section. Patty is deep fried Portobello mushroom. Also very tasty!

The menu and price list is as above. The ones that we have tried are: A+, Beautiful Mess, Bella Luna and Hangover. ALL were AWESOME!!! My Burger Lab also sells Smooshies (not listed on the menu above) at RM5 per bottle.

The fries are also AWESOME! Awesome Fries RM9 per basket. 

Periodic table wall decor at the restaurant

This is where the line starts! Only cash accepted. Once you place your order you will be given a number. When your order is ready, your number will flash on the screen above. Then you can proceed to the collection counter to collect your order. The crowd here on weekdays are the younger generation (read college students or young working adults) and very few families. 

So if you are planning to visit, just be prepared to wait for your food and wait for a table. Otherwise, just drop by early and take away - which was what we did the first time we visited. However, we were fortunate to get a table the last 2 times we were there.
