Finally,


I have time to...

Eat, eat, eat...(without my personal dietician controlling me, you know who you are!)


Sambal petai with fried rice, it's super yummy!

Shop, shop, shop...



Pamper myself with my other favourite girly therapy...

Haha. Please don't think that i'm one spoilt brat who only knows how to pamper myself. I gave myself a pat on a back today for accompanying my mom to watch a traditional chinese instrumental performance. Although I left halfway through to go shop, but hey, I did stay for more than half of the show.








This particular chinese musical instrument, called the Er Hu, reminds me of a very funny story that my dad once told me. When my dad was still a kid, he told his dad, which is also my grandpa, that he wanted to learn how to play the guitar and begged my grandpa to get him a guitar. At that time, my grandpa agreed and brought home a guitar one day to surprise my dad. My dad was obviously extremely happy when he saw the gift. However, when he opened the music case, inside was an Er Hu instead of a guitar! Hilarious isn't it? My traditional grandpa's mindset of a guitar is actually the Er Hu.

Actually, I really enjoy Chinese New Year very much. Other than the food and shopping, it's a great opportunity to gather with family members and to catch up with one another. I personally find it very important spending time with my family. Although we may not be celebrating or having a reunion dinner or receiving ang paos or whatever, we still choose to stay at home during the new year and enjoy each other's company. With that said, I really miss my all time best friend - my sister - who is currently serving her time at the National Service camp. I can't wait for her to be home this holiday, so that we can go shopping, talk, do girly stuff together, "bergossip-gossip"...etc. Haha.

Happy Chinese New Year everybody! Gong xi Gong xi...
