Working on 除夕!
It's an unofficial half day and boss has very kindly told everyone to work from home.
By right I should be feeling very happy and shiok on this day given the option to wfh but no leh – mid-month rush. Down side of working in the finance team.
Woke up around the usual time cos I wanted to make breakfast for us before he leaves for work.
Hehe 爱心早餐! ❤️
Decided to make a full breakfast to make up for yesterday. Haha. I'm a #wifeyfail cos I didn't prepare anything and even told him I don't feel like cooking. 😜
Tried to make a heart shape egg but failed. I'm not very good with the silicone mould yet. Shall practise more!
Haha but at least my egg is quite evenly shaped lah. 🍳
So it was Valentine's Day yesterday.
Not an occasion we celebrate but I was too lazy to cook.
This week is a short week + hubby is not home most of the time so I've decided to skip meal planning. Anyways we have a lot of frozen stuff stocked in the freezer so I can whip up quick meals easily.
We went to the mall and tapao dinner. 😛
Presenting the most romantic Valentine's Day dinner:
Sushi, Mos burger, fried oysters and Nine Fresh. Bahahahahaha.
I feel ultra happy though – cos I get to put my feet up on the chair when I eat, I can burp and laugh loudly, we can share all the food and eat using our hands, we can sit and Chit-chat for as long as we want and best of all, we paid 1/10th of what you would pay at a restaurant! 🙌🏻
Thanks to Dayre I can recall what we did a year ago. Hubby made chili beef stew!

Oh yay I finally received the email and clicked on the link!
I wonder if they will back up the new entries that I'll post from today onwards though. 🤔
MIL requested for homemade bread! 😁
I don't bake for them as often as I should. *guilty*
Perks of working from home means I can walk into the kitchen and do stuff 😬 It's soooo easy with the BM!
Cranberries and walnuts! 😁
3.5 hours later… 🕜
Freshly baked and sliced.
Yay can't wait for reunion dinner tonight!
For the first time in many years (is it 5 or 7?) I don't have to rush for 2 reunion dinners on 除夕!
I like this arrangement! Cos usually I'll be too full after the early dinner with my PIL that I don't eat much with my own family. And my dad will prepare a lot of food. 😐
This year we changed things up a bit!
By having dinners on 2 different days.
And this time I'm the Chef! 👩🏻🍳 let me share the professional photos my Brother took. A good photog makes all the difference!
Reunion with my family
Yam ring with chicken, cashew and scallops.
Braised shiitake mushrooms with abalone and broccoli.
Rolled oats salted egg prawns.
I was so impressed with the photos cos they look like restaurant menu one! But it's just taken at my dining table. 😛
I'll share the recipes another day ya!
But I wasn't very impressed with my cooking that day. 😐 the yam ring was quite nice! Braised mushrooms okay. And the rolled oats prawns disappointing. 😭 I already practised making it but I thought it was too oily the other time so I reduced the oil. Ended up not nice.
I also made fish maw soup!! Which was niceeee 😬 Brother didn't take a photo.
Reunion with my in-laws!
Hubs helping to make the yusheng.
We're going vegetarian this year!
Sumptuous spread prepared by MIL.
Love this dish! So yummy and flavourful!
Wanted to go 春到河畔 after reunion dinner cos hubby said we've never been there together before!
Which is so true!
Better do all the things that a couple can do before starting a family. 😐 butttttttt, we got too tired lolol. Hubby and I were like "sleep is a better idea right?"
So yep we went home to 💤 best decision. Haha.
