There is no other Chinese New Year (CNY) celebration that serves Japanese food but at the Yuen Choong Lai and LC Tan's Gong Xi Fa Chai open house. Last year it was at the Kin Shui Teh, Tropicana Golf and Country Club and this year the venue was changed to Nagomi at the Jaya 33. We befriended both Yuen and LC a few year s back when our sons are best friend since year 1 at the Garden International School GIS). Both Yuen and LC were recruits at the Chief's original Bootcamp but they retired when their fitness was at its prime....It was our first visit to the Nagomi. It was a different concept to the Kin Shui Teh and is a more weight-watcher diet friendly. Its shabu shabu base (aka steamboat base). Every year, Yuen and LC never fail to invite the parents of GIS for their CNY open house and every year, we never fail to err... over-eat our invitation.

How can we possibly behave when there were generous amount of food being served. Yuen, being the President for Hadrons Capital, a venture capitalist co-owned a fleet of fine-dining restaurants and we from the eating department performed our tasks beyond our KPI (Key Performance Index).. we simply bedal licin! But its okay to over-eat because most in the menu were vegetable in nature with a generous portion of lean beef.


Amongst the many recruits that celebrated their Chinese New Year (CNY) in town and did not missed their bootcamp training is the Lush Icon Lady Boss Boutique Pooi Ching Khiew. She did not just attend all the session during the CNY, but she also 'cooked' and invited us all to her house at Sunway SPK, near Desa Park City.

How could we resist that invitation although the whole body was still aching from yesterday's TRX-Grinders and the exhaustion from traveling having just arrived from oversea. After a whole day of discussion at work, Nawal Aini Zulkifli, Rose Emini Pahamin, Aaraf Armin, Daing Daniel Fitri, Nyna Mohsen and Ody Nurfuadi Ruzalli left Bustanu Pahamin in a two car convour for Pooi Ching Khiew's house.

FIRST TABLE: On our arrival, newly engaged Syed Mahadzir Syed Manshor and Shafad Syed was clearing the food on Pooi Ching Khiew's table. We arrived just in the nick of time before all food was cleared. To distract Syed Mahadzir Syed Manshor's attention, we called him to camwhore first!!!  that actually did the trick, we managed to separate him from the nasi lemak bungkus!

4 February 2011. It was an impromptu BBQ.. I was away for too long and had missed three bootcamp training that everybody misses me too much that they all wanted to hang out with me and organised the BARBEQUE Gong Xi Fa Cai session at my house... that was what i wanted to believed but actually Nawal Aini Zulkifli, Sarge Dann, Farhanah Bamadhaj, Lizza Abdul Rahim, Ili Liyana Baharon and Norliza Affandi wanted to KAROEKE whilst Rose Emini Pahamin, Dr Malek Aziz, Aaraf Armin, Anita Ahmad, Abu Lais Walli Mohamed, Ody Nurfuadi Ruzalli, Hani Husin and yada yada yada.. wanted to play the card game Gin Rummy. Chun Chia Kai, Suriana Saiful, Hamidi Hassan, Hairi Zaid, Mohammed Rhiza Ghazi, Melor Edina Pahamin and a bunch of others just want to eat.. i mean EAT. Yes.. thats my department too!! and also blogging. So while everybody were busy doing what they wanted to do.... I was busy eating and blogging.

 The function started at 5pm.... with me lighting up the charcoal. Although I am the person-in-charge of eating department, but I was multi-tasked to be in charge of BBQ-ing as well..

Its a 6-cylinder burner... There were Prawns, Squids, Lamb, Chicken and hotdogs to barbeque-cook...
