happy chinese new year everyone! in a way i'm glad it's kind of over because i ate wayyyyy too many cookies and bak kwa. like seriously, i've never been a fan of bak kwa but somehow i was craving it pretty badly this year.

maybe it was the deprivation of all the cny goodies when i was in holland last year. skip a year a feasting and pay back double the year after. yikes!

the one thing i enjoyed the most were the homecooked feasts that happens every year, from my mum, and both the paternal and maternal grandmother sides. it's just that particular kind of taste that no one else is able to replicate. every year i make a mental note to learn from my grandma.. but as you can see, i'm still making that mental note this year... :p

announcing the arrival of.

the early bird (me) catches the worm (hmm...)

moving on to some good news (or maybe not so good news depending on how you look at it), my sister-the-menace (KIDDINGGGG) is finally back from her 3 month long internship in the maldives!

ok la i must admit i'm quite happy to see her and i did miss her quite a lot when she was gone. ok la i'm not saying that because she may just happen to read this blog.

mr & mrs excited + mr very-excited-but-shall-look-like-i'm-not

i'm so envious that she managed to get certified as a diver in the wonderful waters of the maldivian island (imagine the corals and turtles and sharks!) and all at a really cheap rate!

doesn't want to leave the arrival hall

she also brought back a whole container load of very pretty seashells, which made those that i used to find at the east coast park look like a scam.

you will never understand the pain and issues that i have to deal with.

damn bo liao post no. 112

i can't remember when was the last time my dad and i had a meal alone outside or home. must be a long long time ago, or maybe never. just so happened that we reached sengkang at the same time today so we decided to have dinner at compass point. a few quirky and funny stuff i noticed:

1) when deciding on where to makan, he immediately suggested kfc of all places.
it must be a childhood thing that lasts until now, that having kfc which was once a luxury is still a great pleasure in his life haha..

2) he's a big fan of the drumstick.
another childhood thing where he'll only get to eat the juiciest part of the chicken on special occasions like chinese new year, also why he thinks chicken breast is yuckish

3) he stirs and mixes the mash potato and gravy together until it becomes a swirly pile of goo.
in his words "like that then got flavour"

4) he finishes his food in a consecutive manner.
chicken first, washes hand, then mash potato and coleslaw, then his drink ("pehsi")

i think no. 3 is the most amusing haha.. but it was quite nice to see him enjoying the greasy disgusting fast food with so much satisfaction. =)

i lub my papa and so does mrs beckham!

believing and speaking.

the first day of school tomorrow for the last time. though i've gone through the same routine so many times, this time feels a little different and a bit more special. after all, it's the last stretch of school before i say hi to the working world. *mild butterflies in the tummy* i feel like a primary one kid all over again! but first let me savour what's remaining of any school holidays i'll ever have.

blessed new year everyone! it's going to be an awesome year ahead full of the Lord's love, joy, rest, protection and favour. =)

happy 10th year anniversary daughters of a better age!
