Pre-Chinese New Year Thoughts

Another week from now, it will be Chinese New Year!   YES!!  I am really looking forward to next week, not so much because it is CNY but because my KIDS will be HOME again!!  Nothing is better than to see them together in our own house... hmmmm....

This year is a bit different as the previous year ...... just this evening, I had to do the festive shopping alone... OK, not really alone actually, this year, I went with my mom and sibling to shop for this coming festive season.  I remember that I went with my girl last year....  hmmmmm...

Alright...  time does change our lifestyle each year.... One year is different from the next... hmmmm.....


  1. Actually I also very looking forward to CNY cause this year I can 'earn' back ang pao for Aden, haha!

  2. I also look forward to the CNY not because of CNY but because of the angpows hahaha!!

  3. CNY is a great time for family reunion and old old friends too

  4. yes, it will be a great reunion for most families..

  10. Sobssss!!!! The empty nest syndrome... No worries, you'll get used to it.

  11. ginny: lets wait and see.. :)

    stp: Take years to get used to it.. hahaha..

  12. surely a great thing when all your kids are back home to spend quality time with you!! :)

  13. Mee too, not much about the CNY.It is the bonding time with kids that I like. Home will become lively again once they are back.

  14. Glad you will be together!

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
