Crack Pork

Once upon a time, I used to be an eager beaver
when it came to hunting for new eateries.

Today, there are just SO MANY new places
and my purse can't keep up with the dining scene -_-

I'm glad that I spent when I could back then
and to a certain extent, I am glad that I used to splurge 
on the "finer" things in life for the moment and for the experience.

Perhaps, it was a phase back then for me -
the spending phase
and now, it's all about saving saving saving ….
(when it always should have been the other way round - save then spend).

During one of the weekends, we had a pork fest -
my sis suggested to try out Crack Pork in Kota Damansara.

These days, I rely on my sis for restaurant recommendations
because every other week she seems to be going somewhere new.
The perks of having no financial obligations. 

Once upon a time, I knew how that felt like.

We ordered almost everything on the menu
and my personal favourite item was the porchetta sandwich - YUM!

Even the dessert has PORK (bacon) in it ^^

Mother's Day - This year

This year, we had brunch for lunch because my dad attended a meeting in the morning.
11 a.m. brunch became 1 p.m. lunch.

All credit goes to my sister for preparing the food.
I just helped out with the plating and paying (for groceries).

Looking at this pic makes me realise how much I miss using a camera. 

When you thought that your iPhone camera was good enough . . . . . 
a digital camera still wins hands down.

Smoked salmon and juicy bacon with guacamole on corn and zucchini fritters with tomato salsa and mushrooms on the side.

I went to Touche Cafe early in the morning to grab 'em pastries.

My mum LOVES the nut pastry and is always asking to go there so we thought that it would be a good idea to buy it for her as dessert for Mother's Day.

Pan fried fish for the grandmother because she doesn't eat alotta things.

New addition to the family this Mother's Day.

Mother's Day - A year ago

Realized that I did not document last year's Mother's Day brunch.

Looking at these pics, it sure felt like yesterday when we prepared this spread.
Gotta love home cooked/prepared meals :)
