Preparation for CNY


Today I'm gonna post something pre-CNY coz the CNY are not done yet. Super tiring can? 300+ photos you know. Sampat betul.

So this was on Monday (before CNY) mum and dad wanted to get stuff stocked up for cny so we went to this old store at Bachang to get some cny goodies.

Whole lot of stuff for wholesale

There's like various crackers, nuts, sweets etc. Mum and dad was like in frenzy to choose what to buy. Me on the other hand was not so excited because I don't really like to eat these things. CNY is all about CNY cookies right? Plus I was having a tummy ache at that time. They were so busy they didn't care whether their daughter was dying -_-.

Mum and dad buying some herbs from a chinese sinsei (doctor). That's like weird. How can I doctor be selling herbs? Its like buying rosemary from a doctor. -_-

Then we went to Aeon =) coz mum wanna get some stuff from the supermarket. But before that we went for dinner.
Saw their ad on the newspaper so decided to give it a try. It is a steamboat restaurant which serve hot pot individually. Unlike those traditional ones where everyone shares one pot.

The Pang Family

Mum and I

No Dad and I photos coz he was sitting opposite from me. Too bad. Haha~

The food for the hot pot

My super spicy tom yam soup

It was really really spicy lor. As much as I like tom yam soup, this is too spicy for my liking.

I had to steal mama's soup coz mine was seriously too spicy for me

The beef slices that I ordered was so so only

Overall, the whole meal was so so only. Didn't really like it. I think Yi Tang was so much better.

After dinner, we went shopping. Mum and dad went to the supermarket while I walked around Aeon. So of course without parental supervision I bought some stuff. Wait for it in February Buys. LOL~

#121- 080210 All the stuff mother bought for that day. Super a lot lor.

Bought JCo donuts

My virgin tasting. Super excited. =)

Sorry I don't know the names exactly coz the name plates had been place at the wrong places

I think JCo donuts are much much much better compared to Big Apple. Don't know why but I love it more.

Planning to try their yogurt next time I'm there. Looks really yummy.

Well, that's the end of this post.

Everyone had started working d today. So I'm back to my normal routine. Effing sien. The next time I'm having a break is like June. T-T So damn long summore. How to survive you tell me????


Ok la. Gotta go finish my reviews and send it in before my bosses kill me. I haven't been handing in any for the pass two weeks. =p

So see you guys real soon k?

CNY: Reunion Dinner

Hullo~ Finally got all the photos!!! Yay!!!

So today I'm gonna post only one part of it which is the reunion dinner.

This year's reunion dinner was like two years ago *link*. Very simple one with only our small family of three...just the way I love it.

Because I was so happy I didn't have to work, I slept until 10am. Woots!!!! Since May, when everyone was still asleep after a week of hardwork, I had to wake up at 7.30am. Damn kesian.

First thing I did when I woke up was to put mask coz I haven't been pampering skin for a long long time.

This is my breakfast for that day. Haha~ So not cny-ish

My boss at Piano House gave me a box of pineapple tarts (which are my fav). She gave me on Friday and by Saturday its gone. You have no idea how crazy I am about pineapple tarts.

See how many pineapple tarts my mum bought to satisfy me? Haha~ She used to buy only one but before cny there will be none left. Then she bought two...still not enough. So this year she bought three. HAhahahahahaha~

Other stuff she bought...

This year she bought a lot coz we're not leaving for JB or KL to celebrate CNY. She had to stock up for people who are coming.

My mother made the house very CNY...seriously!!! There were reds every where.

Lunch: long bean eggs with carrots, eggs and white porridge. Typical teochew lunch =)

So many photos of it coz I had to practice to take nice food photos.

Helped to mop the floor after lunch. Also washed the toilet and cleaned my room. Good girl leh =)

Food for the reunion dinner had started cooking in the kitchen since morning. Looks so yummy rite???? I mean the duck la. Takkan the pots look yummy rite? But the poor duck. Looks like he/she didn't die comfortably wtf.

After all the preparation at around 7pm, we were ready to dine. But had to take the obligatory family photo first =)

Me likey all these family photo!!!!

After that neney came over to spend time with me. No pics of him coz we were busy berdua-duaan-ing around the taman while watching fireworks hand in hand. ^///^

He also brought me Valentine's gift. Awwwww~
