the joys of CNY

7 Feb

been waking up at 7am everyday since i got back home. wth its been ages since i actually heard the roosters crow in the morning. followed mum to the pasar pagi to get cny stuffs. boy its neverending. and ive never seen such old ganas aunties before. i was practically shoved and pushed aside by those ganas aunties who wanted to get their hands on the freshest and biggest and cheapest. since i was just my mum’s mobile ‘trolley’ i gave way and stood aside to prevent from being slammed into a crate of veges.

did a couple of last minute shopping with my sis also. everything has to be new mar.

from undies to slippers. all new πŸ™‚

must be donned in new pieces from top to bottom.

according to shianyi, if u do that u will have abundance of clothes to wear the whole year round. didnt know that. its normally an excuse to get more stuffs nia πŸ˜›

i was in charge of the tomyam steamboat this year. tomyam ala mamak.
garnered lotsa compliments from family members. *super proud* pak amir will see me again.real soon :p

when it was still in the kuali

big fat prawns..yummmm

juicy scallops

and some of the other balls:P

played fireworks with my siblings later that night. not before my sis almost murdered me with one of those fireworks that shoots up high in the sky when she accidentally dropped it on the ground. so it was shooting horizontally at all directions. it was scary. but all of us emerged unscathed. we even had a good laugh after that.LOL

embracing the inner kid in me πŸ˜›

camwhored a lil with family on the first day.hehe


i love these people πŸ™‚

cny would not be complete without gambling aight…coupled with cny junks..the combination is just too addictive.haha

my royal flush:P

it was also good meeting up with people ive not seen in ages πŸ™‚ ‘ah ma’ dearest. safe journey back to melb

2 guys, 5 girls and a coffee place

the battle of the ‘mulut besars’

in denial πŸ˜›

and playing with my lil cuzzies in maternal grandparents’ place. i mean really LITTLE..:P
not forgetting catching up with my paternal cuzzies..at least i dont feel so old with them.LOL..cos im not the eldest here..whee~~

extra roundness after 2 days of excessive makan πŸ˜›
