Bottles and bottles of cookies and snacks!

Saturday, January 19, 2013

They're here! They're here! The CNY goodies are here! Almond slices! Pineapple Tarts! Sesame Flowers! Coconut cookies! Seaweed Tofu Chips (yes, you can deep-fry tofu into chips!)! Love letters! And! 1 lonely little bottle of lotus root chips, courtesy of the cookie makers for ordering so many bottles of the goodies!

AND! My Mom is going to try her hand at making narcissus bulb chips! Why!? OH Why?! must they turn everything into chips! And chips that taste soooooo good! Sob!

I'm making myself a promise now, NOT! NOT! to pig out during or after Chinese New Year! I won't! WON'T finish a whole bottle of almond slices by myself! (my favourite!)............Sigh! CNY starts on the 9th of February. A very few days to go before the bottles can be opened! Self control! Self control! I MUST have self-control.

And oh, not all the bottles are mine or my family's, more than half are destined to go to Singapore; my Auntie from Singapore is coming to take them in a few days! She loves the almond slices too!

    I know not what you speak of, but everything you listed sounds soooooooo yummy!!!!! I do hope you will have self control and enjoy one chip at a time. But I sure wish I could help you sample everything!

    How I miss love letters! Cannot get them here. There is something else I miss that one of my aunts made. Unfortunately, she has passed away. It is white in color and melts in your mouth. Do you know what CNY cookie I am talking about? The almond ones that you mentioned sounds real good too. I trust you will have self control. Enjoy them in moderation, my dear!

Take care and have a great day! emoticon

    Just happened across your blog. I can understand why you are excited about CNY. We have family in Singapore. You just reminded me that I must not forget to send a card. emoticon They take awhile to get there! Have a happy CNY in February. Hold back on the goodies until then!!

Got a little pedometer!

Saturday, January 12, 2013

Only cost me RM5! From the Japanese RM5 chain, Daiso! The best thing is, you can even buy the batteries in Daiso too! It's not 100% accurate all the time but hey! for 5 bucks, who can complain?! According to my little pedometer, I've taken 1,800 steps in the park today! I will try to up my steps tomorrow!

I got carried away researching hairstyles on the internet and came out for my walk late. Tomorrow, I'll try to do better. On the upside, I've printed out a hairstyle that I think will look great on me, I'm taking it to my hairdresser for my next appointment next month.

Take care & have a fabulous weekend! emoticon

Christmas 2012 party pics!

Thursday, January 10, 2013

And here they are :

The Christmas tree :



The food :



My Mom's Chicken Rendang






My Homemade mashed pototoes and coleslaw.





The 2 pizzas!



The dessert : longan with almond jelly in pandanus syrup.



The turkey, expertly craved by our Bible Study leader!



And.........the stuffing!

I haven't got the pics for the Church Christmas party yet. Just this one of our Bible Study group. Quite a spread, eh? I must say, my coleslaw looks delicious! And it is! The mashed potatoes were very good too! But I mustn't forget my Mom's Chicken Rendang, a friend of mine couldn't get enough of it and packed nearly the whole thing for later! We had lot's of leftovers, we all packed what we could. Sadly, I don't have pics of the pasta carbonarra, that was also yummy!

Oh No! CNY is coming again!

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

Well, after 2 Christmas parties, I'm ready to shed some fat again. But the next hurdle is Chinese New Year (CNY) on the 10th and 11th of February and the next 13 days thereafter. Already my Mom is ordering some yummy goodies for it. I even went to a sampling session last Saturday so my Mom could order the ones I liked!

I can just picture myself holding a bottle of florentine almond slices and going through the entire bottle in less than an hour! NOPE! I WON'T AND CAN'T DO THAT! That would be a mini disaster! The phosphate levels in the almonds would wreck havoc on my body (I'm a dialysis patient).

Also, because of the Christmas sales everywhere for the last 2 months, I've also been spending a lot of money. I have to start saving again! And CNY means new clothes. I plan to buy a nice blouse to go with my new pink slacks. Just one set of new clothes will do, my wardrobe is already bursting with too many clothes. I have waaaaay too many T-shirts, I suspect I'll have to clear my closet soon too.........sigh! The joys and being a woman!

    Not really sure why we need new clothes for CNY. Maybe it's to symbolize a new year.

does it symbolize new life or something?

    Oh the Chinese New Year. I also spent lots of cash during the Xmas. I should really start saving too. But hey, it's our new year, we have to do something to feel like we are celebrating, it's already very boring when I am living in Dublin. There isn't much around. emoticon

    Oh, I really miss CNY so much! Over here, it is so quiet compare to M'sia. Miss all the special CNY dishes and cookies, etc. Can you have just a little of what you like?

Clothes - I really need some new ones. Wow! I like the color pink too! I am picturing you in your pink slack and probably a nice white blouse to go with it. I have a lot of old clothes to clear out of my closet too. I used to buy clothes every month when I was working back in M'sia. Now, I can't afford it as I am not working.

Take care & have a fabulous day! emoticon

The test has been done!

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

Well, the aluminium test has been done without a hitch! I'm now waiting for the results and I will probably be having the parathyroid gland surgery early 2013. Hopefully, after the surgery, I can do my Pilates again as well as stop my bones aching like an old lady! In short, hopefully after they have removed/relocated my parathyroid glands, I'll be myself again and can start exercising like I used to!

I will let you peeps know when I come to that bridge!
