Happy Valentine's Day and Happy Eve of the Eve of Chinese New Year!! ❤️
Not that the hubby and I are celebrating in any way. 😅
The morning conversations went like:
👱🏻♀️: do you need to go school tonight b?
👱🏻: yeah… oh no no tonight no need.
👱🏻♀️: oh why?
👱🏻: it's midweek exercise day today!
👱🏻♀️: huhhhh but I'm sick. Cannot exercise. Mommy said cannot (it's true ah my MIL so sweet she texted me – no exercise and no cleaning. Side note: she is gonna miss this space confirm! She gets updates on our lives thru Dayre!)
👱🏻♀️: Maybe we go grocery shopping instead? (Cos I forgot to buy stuff to cook for CNY 😐 was planning to order Redmart but there is no more delivery slot tmr! 😨)
👱🏻: okay can also!
👱🏻♀️: omg it's Valentine's Day leh baby! (Suddenly remembered)
👱🏻: oh ya horrrr!
Hubs gave me a kiss and wish me Happy Valentine's!
👱🏻♀️: you forgot right?? Today is V-day! (Just teasing him)
👱🏻: noooo I remember! I subconsciously know it's Valentine's so I'm not going school tonight ma!
👱🏻♀️: yaaaa right. 🙄
Reunion with Girlfriends!
A bit too much food but it's ok lah leftovers means 有余 right?
A bought a can of abalone! So sweet of her!
I was told to slice thinly and did my best (see the ones at the back).
Hubs looked upon me and frowned.
"Aiyo not thin enough leh. Slice thinner!"
Lol. 🙌🏻 give up lah asked him to do it instead.
Was quite impressed cos he really made them super thin and lay out nicely. Had to take a photo to compliment him on Dayre. 🤣
First lo hei of the year!! Welcoming the 🐶 with Umi Sushi yusheng.
I'm lazy so I just use instant chicken stock. Easiest soup base ever!
And yes we shifted the crazy heavy dining table to this side of the living room.
And moved the bicycle too so it's not blocking the way.
One thing I love about our house, or rather living room, is that it's so empty and we can happily change the arrangement.
I think my 摆盘 not bad so take more photos. 😅
We cut down on all these cos they are high in sodium. So more vegs and mushrooms and meat pls!! Less of balls and luncheon meat and sausages.
Enoki in paper cups.
Cos it saves space.
And it's super easy to take a throw into the steamboat pot – one cup at a time. 👍🏻
Pork Belly (top right) and pork collar.
Unfortunately this brand of shabu not that nice leh. I thought I bought before and they were not bad but somehow it's not as nice now.
Mental note to buy Porkee from NTUC next time!
This Huawei camera is so good lah!!
Thank you P for bringing ice-cream over!! So yummy this one.
One round of Limpeh Says hahaha.
My girlfriends and I are not the dirty funny jokes kind of people so quite hard to play ah! I think this game is meant for party party kind of people. 😅 if that makes sense.
Switch to Ban Luck – more our kind of game haha.
Hubby and I both lost money. 😨 lol. We've never really won at any gamble before.
My Husband suck at taking selfies lolol.
K's Huawei phone!
Quality is not bad but the photo composition really cmi haha. We are so bad at this photo-taking thing!
But still, for memories sake. We always take photos together. ☺️ so happy our small girlfriends gang is expanding!
Idk why my head tilt such a weird angle. This is just not the day for photos. 🤦🏻♀️
Thank you girls for the reunion dinner! It was fun hosting!
I'm turning back time to update this post cos I want the events to be in sequence hahaha. 怪癖 yes.
We had a super huge gathering at YS & XF's place for CNY reunion! This year we had an extra guest – the 11th Brother. 🤔
I've always thought hubby's clique is 10! That's why I affectionately call them 十兄弟. So cute right. Friends for more than half the lifetime is precious.
A cutting the chicken.
To which some of us observed that the chicken is different colour – some yellow, some pink.
Red table cloth for maximum huat-ness!
Prawns! Painstakingly peeled by the advance party and they even plate it so nicely!
Every year we will gather at D's parents' house for CNY cos it's a 3-storey house at Bukit Timah which is big enough to accommodate everyone without disturbing their family upstairs. Lol.
Finally this year… 大家长大了. Most of us already moved out to our new place so it shall be a yearly rotation!
As usual, advance party will arrive 1 hour ahead of time to buy grocery.
Preparing for lo hei. Every year K will buy this from Ichiban.
So many things have become a tradition because we do the same every year for the past X years? ☺️ it's heartwarming.
Wefie before we begin.
I also suck at taking photos with the selfie stick haha.
So pretty these photo frames from #taobao!
Aiyo so cute!
Sounds like a phrase from the Limpeh Says game lol.
