When THE parents met THE parents

The bf came a day later and we celebrated post V-Day! :D

A simple dinner in Italiannes..
















I've always wanted to go there after reading so many good feedbacks in blogs and magazines. But each time its either it's too crowded or ain't in the mood.



















We've been apart for 3 weeks, it's a total torture :( But we ended up with arguements later that night wtf, and we patched up an hour later :D

Early morning the next day, we started our journey back to Taiping. It's been so long since the bf visited my parents back in the hometown. And I returned after 3 days in KL -_- I seriously don't mind spending my entire life in Taiping ya know? ;)

My brother recommended that we pay a visit to 'Hutan Paya Bakau Tertua di Malaysia'. OMG!!! It's so near yet so far!!! I didn't know it's just about 20 mins drive from my home and frankly speaking, I've never heard of it before. Yeah, I'm proud Taipingian..
















The chinese name for the forest is hong shu lam (red forest) and I'm expecting to see red trees everywhere. But upon reaching, I asked the security guard, "Masuk tengok ape?".. and he said "Takde ape-ape lah, tengok pokok-pokok je.." -_- And yeah, there's no red trees as expected. I misinterpret it *sigh*
















Pokok yang luar biasa.

It was definately an unusual trip back to Taiping this time because it was the day THE PARENTS met THE PARENTS! *gasp*
















l-r: my parents, his parents, his aunt and uncle.

Yeah, how I felt? I'm glad that they actually clicked quite well, much better than I've expected so *phew*

We went all the way to Penang the next morning as the bf's parents have not been there for yearssss. As we've only half a day left for Penang trip before we back to KL that very night, the only place we managed to visit was Kek Lok Si Temple.
















The same spot we stood 2 years back ;)
















My handsome daddy and I ;)




















I posed the same way 20 years back -_- Omg.. proved I'm still me after so long..




















While I busy camwhored at this wishing tree, a gweilo walked towards me and asked "Do you need any help?" I was like, "uH..uHm... It's alright.. thanks.." T_T I'm such a shame k?




















So nice right!! There're lanterns all over the temple, oil lamps, wishing trees and lotus candles everywhere. I could snap all ada feel shots if the weather allows, but the sun was killing us!!




















My lovely parents. Co-incidently they were both wearing goldish yellow and had a gold umbrella. And that made them Duli Yg Maha Mulia Yg di-Pertuan Agong and Raja Permaisuri :D

That summarized my short but meaningful weekend. And I still have 300+ photos that I have yet to edit..ARGH!!!
