5 Things About Chinese New Year 2010

Chinese New Year week has passed and now everything is back to usual. No more annoying dong dong chang songs, what a relief!

So, here are some boring things related to my week of boredom.

1) I love pineapple tarts! *Nom nom*

Pineapple tarts will always be the best cookie during CNY! *Nom nom nom*

2) As usual, a day trip to Taiping to visit relatives.

Taiping was so damn hot, totally spoiled the mood!

Oh yeah, the most frequent phrase I hear every CNY is “Ah Ken, big already lor!”. Big doesn’t mean fat okay…

3) Met up with high school friends from St. Michael’s Insitution, Ipoh.


All also BIG already lor!

We shared and talked about funny incidents that happened years ago. It’s always interesting to reminisce the past. Those were the days…

Some notable bloggers in that group are Guo Zheng from Three, Two, One… SNAP and Jared Ee from The Awesomesauce Times.

4) The week was too boring, that I took pictures of my boxer dog cleaning her…

…no no, cleaning herself up!

Remember the “brownies” I posted a few entries ago? Yeah, she’s the supplier!

5) During CNY, it’s all about collecting ang pao. Yeah, collecting for me, not giving okay? I’m not married!

You know, I saw someone’s status saying that he/she has enough ang pao money to buy an iPhone! Damn, so much money wan… Wow!

After counting, I think I have enough money to buy… an iPhone… CASE?

But I don’t even own an iPhone! Sad lah

Anyway, I hope you all had a great week! Gong Xi, Gong Xi!

  1. Guess that I’m the lucky one who is able to buy iPhone with ang pao money.. cause I have 25 uncle and aunties ^^; take liao then take again, cause too many cousins.
