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 🙂

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 😛

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 😛

camwhored a lil with family on the first day.hehe


i love these people 🙂

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 🙂 ‘ah ma’ dearest. safe journey back to melb

2 guys, 5 girls and a coffee place

the battle of the ‘mulut besars’

in denial 😛

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 😛

another reunion dinner

bad angle..LOL

our ‘waiter’ for the night with his other half 🙂

meiyoong jie and i

some of the orang tuas 😛

the best part??

t’was a good day

3 Feb

3 of us adik-beradik ditched our mum at grandparents’ place in pg and went on a shopping spree!!good food, had a few good laughs, and good sales!! got myself 4 tops, cropped pants, shorts, 2 pairs of heels, a comb, nail polish, a hairband, and a few other stuffs. wanted a pair of purple sneakers frm Converse but well, i thought it was enough for the day. i was walking like a ‘king kong’ from all the bags. but well, my bro suffered the most. followed us girls for 6 hours nonstop with all our purchases most of the time:P

being the nice taikajie i am i gave them a treat in Sakae Sushi. LOVE the place. better than Sushi King in my opinion. More variety and we did not have to go through slow waiters to place our orders. all we did was to key in everything we wanted to order in a computer. damn canggih wei:P

here’s a peek of some of the goodies we had:)

blossom something

yummy octopus

avocado temaki.wa sangat suka.rm1.90 sumor nia 😛

soft shell crabs..mMmmMMm

all time fav chawan mushi

some valentine’s special dragon star thingy 🙂

salmon bento


chinese new year songs were playing from every corner of queensbay. performances by some chinese orchestras were serenading all shoppers on a stage near the main entrance. the decor was splendid and it exudes nostalgia all over me 🙂 ahh, i lup cny!! esp when all those traditional cny songs get me all hyped up 🙂 to shop.blueks

when old days were all about sepia and black & white,

its colourful details like these that gives you a vivid reason to love what u can see when everything might seem bleak

last but not least,

my so-called semi bob 😛

happy getting ready for cny peeps..mmmWWaahHhh!!!
