More of CNY........

Finally....my PUSSY WILLOW was up & ready to receive & welcome the new year !!! After several attemps to find a nice one, we failed until again, we saw them in IKEA (we bought it here too last year)!! I also wonder if it was pure bias.....anyway....at least it managed to convince us to pay!! But Ikea was so "kiam sap" this year, 1 stalk was just too little for the eyes so in the end, we bought 2 stalks and it looked like this.......... eyes "baru syiok" !!

NICE Ah ???

Then I was taken by a surprise when I saw this in IKEA...








A supposingly furniture store has became so commercialise that it also tried to reap some extra profit from the happening of the festives. Nevertheless, i didn't even give a second thought when my eyes caught the sight of it & there goes 2 containers were seen swipe into our trolley.

Btw, anyone know what is "nga ku" in english?

You see....not only me that do not know what was the name, even IKea also don't know....hahaha !!
Anyway, it was not just me who is a super fans of 'nga ku' chips, my boys too inherited the same taste bud! And i really mean seriously love...... to the extend of both able to finish the whole container in less than half a morning !!

These chips were bought last Sunday & they were already gone by Wed that followed(i think) & that was with me hiding it here & there....or else ??? I must go & hunt for some more now!!!

I also found these in Ikea, 3 little vases that were so sweet & captured my heart too.......



OK......ENUF !!

The other afternoon, my huby went to do some hamper shopping for his customers. Since he was already in the hypermarket, he grabbed the good opportunity for a peaceful shopping without our 2 monkeys! And obviously it was to fulfill the festive needs!

So, he rang me......to ask what i want him to buy. Here are my answers:

- get some can fruits for cordial;

- chicken essences, lo hong ka;

- "lin kou";

- get some snacks/junk food for "gift exchange" during CNY house visiting;

- get me some shandy beer.....

then since i can't think of anything more specific, i just told him to go ahead with whatever he thinks appropriate!!

Of course the ultimate outcome was another surprise to me....with my mouth wide opened!!!

As i dug into the packs of plastic bags.....I kept saying.........

oh my god, oh my, oh god, oh no, aiyo........

Lets Check them out.....

Gosh, such ugly "lin kou".....

(i) my can fruits turned out to be 2 cans of longan, laici & sea coconut each (total 6 cans).....want me to die of diabetic meh?

(ii) i only expect 1/2 dozen of shandy beer but the quantity came back as double ....hopefully there are guest out there to help finish them!!

(iii) next... don't know what mushrooms & clams = also 2 cans each....i know these are meant to be given away as gift but if i were there doing the shopping, i would have cut all the quantity into half !!

That's not the end yet........next are the loots of junkies !! Again, these are also meant to be given away BUT BUT BUT i specifically mentioned to him to get something that we are keen to eat ourselves...just in case, in the end the junkies are not given away!!

But then, i would have to say probably we both are different in some way or another, bcoz his choices weren't the same as mine at all. I think if i was there doing the shopping together with him, quarrels & disputes between husb v wife are definitely inevitable !!!

These are the junkies that i wouldn't likely eat.....

Well, well, well... despite all......i was actually spared of the tiring & boring CNY shopping...... should i still complaint??

No no no....i absolutely should NOT, i just thought it was an amusement that i should share it here,....men today can be so different heh, no? hahaha !!!

Btw, don't you think this is a blurdy "blood-sucking" festival ??? After this CNY, i'm sure everyone has a deep burn of hole to the pocket!!!

Did you see a pagoda in KLCC?? Looks like they made good use of the elevator heh, no? This is the place that i would pass-by everyday (where my office is nearby)....so i thot i should just snap them & keep here for you (if u don't happen to drop by)!!

Btw, i will be leaving the city for hub's hometown on Tues afternoon....hope it'll be a 'not-so-jam' & smooth journey!!
An early GONG XI FA CAI to everyone.....just in case i'm not able to come back for another posting before the big day.

Arrow head chips??
Enjoy your trip back to the kampong. Perhaps the surplus could be passed out there, but you will need all the shandy to drink on the way there so the trip goes quicker and you cannot hear the 2 monkeys heheh.
Like your willow decoration.
