Decors for CNY & Valentine's

Since the first day of CNY was also Valentine's Day, I have made this simple yet very lovely Valentine's deco at home. My gals like it so much. I got the idea from here.

And this is how my home CNY corner looks like.

"Jin Yuan Pao" bowl bought from morning market, cost me RM3.50 only.

Ang Pow lantern, my first and only hand craft for CNY.

Last but not least, I have these 2 beautiful models to pose for photo session.

Reunion Meals For CNY

Have you ever face difficulty or headache when making decision on having reunion meals with your family or your hubby's family? I'm lucky as the reunion meal of my family side is all the while being arranged in lunch and my in law always in dinner. Not sure whether this was planned by my mum long long time ago, ever since she realized that she has 4 daughters that when all get married, we will need to go back to in law house for reunion dinner. Well plan, mum. Otherwise we will not having any chance to sit together for such important meal every year.

So, for many many years (past and for future), we will gather at mum house for reunion lunch follow by giving away ang pow from my parents to us, then from elder siblings to younger siblings (ya, we practise this even all of us already married. I'm the second younger sibling in the family, lucky ler, still able to get ang pow every year), then it's our turn to present any pow to our nieces and nephews.

The situation can be quite mess up and you will see all the any pow flying here and there, from one corner to another, shouting here and there looking for owner of the misplace ang pow..... ha ha, this is our CNY but it's full of fun.

Guess your CNY reunion meals also as greats as ours. Enjoy this precious moment with your loved one and family members.

Cute & Special Ang Pow

Received these cute and special ang pow packets from my colleague (bought from Taiwan). Ai yo so nice, how to give away to kids as most of them will not keep the ang pow after taking out the money. Are you willing to spend on those ang pow packet or just use free ang pow from bank?

First time seeing any pow in cutie bag design.
Open up the bag cover to insert your money.

Another creative ang pow design. All with Disney's characters.

How I wish I could receive such a nice and beautiful ang pow from elderly when I was young ...... :P

Simple Teochew Porridge

I purposely set my alarm clock to wake up like normal working day to do my grocery marketing early morning last Saturday as I wished to keep some stock for CNY. I like to go morning market by myself, you know how tedious it could be with 2 kids tagging along, what's more under the hot sun. I try not to wake them up too early during weekend.

Since I was going to the market, might as well buy some thing to cook for lunch as we will be staying home. I was out of idea on what to cook and eat nowadays so I just cook a simple lunch for them. I got no time especially when tonne of house chores need to be done before CNY and we only have last weekend to get it done.

My version of Teochew Porridge - the simplest one but I like it so much.

No doubt its just a simple lunch, it did full up our stomach with satisfaction. (ai ya, after taking the photo only realized the porridge is missing in action.....he he)

Affairs Jokes......Part 2

A mortician was working late one night.
He examined the body of Mr. Schwartz, about to be cremated,

and made a startling discovery.
Schwartz had the largest private part he had ever seen!

'I'm sorry Mr. Schwartz,' the mortician commented,
'I can't allow you to be cremated with such an impressive private part.
It must be saved for posterity.'

So, he removed it, stuffed it into his briefcase, and took it home.
'I have something to show you won't believe,' he said to his wife, opening his briefcase.
'My God!' the wife exclaimed, 'Schwartz is dead!'


A woman was in bed with her lover when she heard her husband opening the front door.
'Hurry,' she said, 'stand in the corner.'

She rubbed baby oil all over him, then dusted him with talcum powder.
'Don't move until I tell you,' she said. 'Pretend you're a statue.'
'What's this?' the husband inquired as he entered the room.

'Oh it's a statue,' she replied.
'The Smiths bought one and I liked it so I got one for us, too.'
No more was said, not even when they went to bed.

Around 2 AM the husband got up, went to the kitchen and returned with a sandwich and a beer.
'Here,' he said to the statue, have this.
I stood like that for two days at the Smiths and nobody offered me a damned thing.'

Her Dream 'Cart'

Do you know how much my gal likes to ride this "yoyo cart"? My niece has one at my mum's house, every kids in the house like to ride including my gals. They always fight to ride and when we sounded Audrey to let the younger kids to ride, her face will turn long. So sometimes she will request me to go mum house earlier so that she got the chance to ride "puas-puas" before her cousins arrive.

Since she likes it so much, we decided to buy her a yoyo cart as her birthday present. I bought it last 2 week from a toy shop at Tesco Semenyih. It cost me RM89. Initially we thought of giving her this present on her birthday but hubby can't wait to see her gal's happy face. So we give it to her last weekend. Before that we make it clear that this is her present for coming birthday and she can't request for pressie anymore.

She was so surprised with some weird expression on her face. Finger pointing her daddy like "ar..how do you know this is my dream cart?"

Daddy dismantling the plastic bag (no suitable plastic bag or carton to keep it, so I used rubbish bag and placed it on top of the cabinet).

"Yeah.... finally I can ride my own yoyo cart as and when I like". Too early to say so, Audrey. True enough, she just got the pride to ride for a while, her mei mei already chase her out from the cart..... ha ha.
