January 2009


Reunion Dinner (1)

This year’s reunion dinner was at Jumbo Seafood Restaurant at Safra Resort. Other than my family, there was also my auntie’s family. All in all 11 of us. The food was pretty okay but having reunion dinner at a restaurant is really a pricey thing. But I guess what’s most important is for family members to gather together and enjoy a wonderful and warm meal. 🙂

今年的團圓飯是在珍寶海鮮樓吃的。
除了自己家人外﹐今年還多了我姑姑一家人。
總人數 – 十一人。
其實在外頭吃團圓飯是很昂貴的﹐
但我想最重要的就是借此機會﹐
讓一家人開開心心的享受一頓溫馨的晚餐。 🙂

Reunion Dinner (2)

In Singapore, there is the tradition of “Lo Hei” during Chinese New Year, which is to raise ‘good luck’. It is normally eaten on the 7th day of the new year but nowadays, people just eat as and when they like during the 15 days of new year. I had already eaten this twice within the past few days and I do hope good luck will be around me for the whole of 2009! ^^

在新加坡﹐過年都有撈魚生的習俗。
意指撈個“風生水起”及“越撈越旺”。
而這道菜通常是在人日這天吃的。
不過現在大家都已經不分時日﹐想吃就吃。
過去的這幾天﹐我已經吃了兩次﹐
但願好運會跟隨我一整年唷﹗ ^^

Here’s wishing all who celebrates lunar new year:

祝愿所有慶祝農曆新年的朋友們:
恭喜發財﹐牛年行大運﹗
想什麼有什麼﹗﹗
新年快樂唷﹗﹗﹗ 😀
(ps: 在最後一張照片裡出現的是我老媽。這些照片都是在牛車水拍的。)

It’s supposed to be a shopping session for new clothes and shoes for the lunar new year. But apart from a new pair of wedges, everything else I bought had nothing to do with the new year! Looks like cuties and munchies still attract my attention more. :mrgreen:

本來是要在過年前買些新衣新鞋的﹐可是除了一雙低跟鞋以外﹐我買的東西都與過年無關﹗
看來還是一些可愛的﹐吃的﹐喝的﹐比較吸引我。:mrgreen:

Handphone Pouches

While browsing through Etsy, I found another local etsyian, MomLuvDIY. She specialises in making fabric products such as handphone pouch, book cover, passport cover, key fob, etc. Upon knowing that she displays her products at Kuchiku, a retail store at Plaza Singapura Basement 1, I decided to drop by to purchase a couple of gifts for my friends.

Frankly speaking, I was a tiny bit disappointed when I saw her products as I find that the sewing isn’t as good as expected. Such as on one of the book cover, I realised that the reinforcement of stitches wasn’t done smoothly. And on one of the handphone pouch that I bought, the zipper can’t be pulled completely at one go.

There’s definitely room for improvement on the sewing skills but if you are not too particular on the sewing, MomLuvDIY’s products are still worth checking out. ^^

之前在Etsy網站上發現了一位本地的手作品愛好者MomLuvDIY
因為她的作品有在百貨公司裡其中一間店面﹐Kuchiku擺賣
因此特地到那去瞧瞧
看看有沒有什麼禮物可以買給好朋友的

老實說﹐看了作品後有些許失望
因為縫紉的功力並沒有想像中的好
有些針線的線條不是很美觀
或是拉鏈沒有縫得很順
拉的時候會有一點卡到

雖然縫紉的功力有待加強
但如果你不屬于挑剔型
又喜歡她所使用的可愛布料
MomLuvDIY的作品還是可以購買的 ^^

I Won!!

I hardly win anything in my life so I was truly surprised when I was notified that I won the above Rainie Yang’s latest album and a 2009 planner with stickers! Does this mean I’ll have good luck for the whole of 2009? I really hope so. 😀

從小到大﹐我都沒什麼中獎運。
可是一開年﹐我就贏了電視臺的”不良笑花”問答游戲。
獎品是楊丞琳的最新專輯和2009記事本(附帖紙)。
這是不是表示2009我會走好運呢﹖
希望如此啦。 😀

Lunar New Year is coming soon so it’s time to buy some flowers for decoration. I was expecting a crowd at the flowers market just like last year but sad to say, there aren’t many people around and there’s even less people buying. The effect of the gloomy economy…..

農曆新年的腳步越來越近﹐所以和媽媽到花市去逛了逛。
原本以為會是人潮洶湧的場面﹐結果卻沒多少人。
看的人少﹐買的人就更少了。
看來經濟衰退的現像越來越明顯了。。。

I’m so stressed by work recently that I only want to relieve all the anger and stress through shopping. So when weekends arrive, I took the time to shop till I drop….luckily I didn’t really spent that much money!! Take a look at the treasures I brought home! :mrgreen:

最近被工作壓得喘不過氣
所以週末一到
我的購物癮就犯了
來來來。。。看看我的敗家成果吧 :mrgreen:
