Wrapping February

Hello hello! This is gonna be my last post for the month of February. Wrapping it up nicely and gonna put it aside to welcome a new month, March. Let's march forward together, head held strong, shoulders straight and powerful heels.

But right before I march into March, I'm gonna start it with a vacation for myself. My long awaited vacation since last year. Well some sort of amendments happened somewhere in the middle while I was anticipating for this day to arrive. Nevertheless, I'm still on for this vacation!

It's gonna be the first flight tomorrow to Penang. Taking the first flight out for a fresh new day seems nice eh =) I've been to Penang once back in 2003. That time I was there with my family and 3 cousins. My pap drove us up from KL. It was a memorable trip. We had the best time throughout the journey despite the long drive. We sang and sang and keep on singing in the car. How I wish we can do that again cousins =)

This trip is gonna be different. I'm go…

Man Valentines was exactly 2 weeks ago! Haha! Yes I got *ahem* sort of tease by bf that my blog post are all outdated. He was asking where's my Valentines day post =.= I know lah. I'm always writing outdated post but hey at least I didn't drag til next month =D So let me post up my lovey dovey Valentines date. If you feel like puking, please be kind and leave so you won't dirty your own keyboard =P
So what was your Valentines gift? I never really prepare any gift for my bf so yes, same goes to this year. I came empty handed =D Everyday can be Valentines what. So long as I feel like giving, then I'll buy =) 
I was anticipating for Valentines to arrive cos I'm very very curious at what Kent will do for me. He didn't give a hint. I only know that dinner is confirm and that's it. It's our first Valentines together so yes, throughout the whole day at work, I kept waiting for any sign of him appearing at my doorstep or any sweet msg for the night's in…

Chap Goh Mei

Here comes the last day of Chinese New Year. Oh how time flies! So how was your Chap Goh Mei dinner? Mine was celebrated a day earlier. The usual Hakkas will always celebrate any occasion a day earlier than other people. This time, I followed bf to his grandpa's house for the huge family gather =)
Huge family means lotsa good food!!! All of these were cooked by his uncle's wife. There's even wild boar meat! My first time eating it. How did it taste like? Er.....I still prefer normal pigs. Hehe =D

Fried pork and chicken by 6th shu mu (Uncle's wife). Wait, how do you address uncle's wife? Just aunty right? Haha! Ah whatever!

Curry by erm....4th shu mu I think. I only remember seeing everyone carry a huge pot into the house =D

Fish by I-don't-know-who again =.= Fine so I didn't help out with the cooking cos there's already 7 aunties in the kitchen and I won't do any help also. =D

Hmm....I've a question. What do you call this vege in English? I onl…

Baby Elaine

Let's skip my CNY Day 4 and hop over to Day 5. Haha! Cos Day 4 was only about friends coming over to my house, then me and family went to Bako for lunch and then went up to Qing Shan. Night time just drinks with friends at Wave Cafe. That's all. No visiting for me =) Therefore no photo taken. Nyek!
Day 5. Gathering with old buddies at Ms Chan's house. Our annual gathering just for the sake of chicken wings! Yes, that awesome chicken wings cooked by Ms Chan's husband. And again I forgot to take photo cos I was way busy with baby Elaine!
Who is she?
That chubby adorable girl belongs to my ex-colleague, Sze Sze. I did posted about her marriage 2 years ago. Now her daughter is already 7 months old! How fast time flies kan?

For a 7 months old baby, she is definitely a huge eater! The thing about her is that, she doesn't like it when other people carry her except for her own parents. How did we manage to get her into our hands? With the temptation of food! =D

That's…

Chinese New Year Day 3

Ah time for CNY Day 3 post. Got lazy for the past few days and then mood swing came so there goes my blog-less days. Right. What did I do on Day 3? Visiting of course!!! It's yet another round of ST3P Family visiting. I wasn't planning for any visiting this year because many had left Kuching. But what I did not expect was Edmund to be back home!!! 
Boy I couldn't be more happy to hear him back home for CNY. The moment I got his message, I had to read twice to check that I did not read wrong. Haha! So on immediate, Day 1 noon time I mass message everyone I can think of and start my planning. But this year we didn't head to many house as a few were not home at that time. So had to skip a few.
First house was of course to Edmund's house. No photos were taken cos everyone came at a different time. And a few had to go to temple and wasn't able to make it. Next was to Ing Liang's house.
What's happening? The minute we stepped into Liang's house, we hear …

Chinese New Year Day 2

2nd post of February. Oh tedah! Let the food speak itself for my CNY Day 2. This year my open house was on Day 2 morning. Mom had me ordered some sushi from Sushi King. So that morning, I went to Hills to collect sushi! Sushi is the main dish at our open house every CNY. Previous years we had the time to make our own but this year, oh everyone got lazy =P
At about 11pm plus, you start seeing relatives coming into my house. It's food time! I invited few friends along too but they had to be postponed til around 1pm cos my relatives are way too many that my house was so packed! We don't even have enough chairs for everyone and had to borrow chairs from my aunty. Haha! And some even sat on floor =.= 
This year mom surprised us by buying a set of Yee Sang. It's very small compared to what I had at BCCK. Hehehe =P Sadly I didn't even get to eat it and it's gone! =( Man I miss BCCK's Yee Sang.

And then time for food! Smart aunties just sat around the dining table for…

Hello February! It's already 15th of February and here I am posting my very first post for this month. Haha! Super lazy and busy! So how was your Valentine's last night? Mine was sweet =) Will make a blog post for that after I edit those photos. Hee~
*ahem* Have you counted and banked in your angpow money? I just passed mine to mom to ask her help me bank it in. As the age increases, angpow always shrink kan? And then you will always get the "When is your turn to give me" question. Ah relatives~
I'll just let the photos speak for itself. I didn't take much photos this year. Wasn't in quite a good mood though. Oh personal matter~ Anyway, stolen a few from cousins. Happy browsing~
Family portrait. We got the Best Dressed Family award. Haha! Konon award lah~

Few months back, we 32 cousins decided to give all our parents a surprise on first day of CNY. We all promised to wear red! And we succeeded!!! =D Not all cousins are here because 2 went travelling, 3 we…
