On the day before CNY's eve,

I flew back to Kuching...

and attended my cousin bro's wedding dinner at night.

One of my fave dish that night OM NOM NOMS

Love love love my new blue sheer dress, got it for like RM25 only! *mad steal*

While on CNY's eve, all I did was eating..non-stop. All of my aunts are really good cooks, so how can I say no when I'm pampered with food?
Reunion lunch at 3rd Aunt's (: 

Reunion dinner at the eldest aunt's :D

年年有余 (Read: Having surpluses and abundance every year) 

Some greens with abalone mushrooms YUMS Green vegetables represent close family ties.
Succulent prawns steamed with egg white and wine! (Y)(Y) Prawns represent liveliness.

Yee Sang or known as raw fish salad, said to bring good luck. 

One of the best braised pork I've ever tasted SLURPS Pork represents strength, wealth and abundance blessings.  

Megan, feeling all excited to lou sang for the first time. She's too short that she had to stand on the chair  :P
8 dishes on the dining table symbolizes fortune    發   
Before the dinner starts, everyone is tossing the yee sang. Lou ah lou ah! As you toss, you shout out for good health, wealth, happiness, doing well in studies and etc.

One big happy family <3

The aftermath; not as messy as it's supposed to be.

Ang ang bo hai lang :P Simply means red won't kill anyone.
Red mini tanglungs (:

A CNY wouldn't be complete without lots and lots of firecrackers!! PILIPALA BOOM ~

and fireworks! 
I promise there will be no food photos on the next post :P Happy 7th Day of CNY which means today is 人日 (read: common man's birthday) where everyone grows one year older! 8 more days left to HUATTTTT ARH!

CNY is just 2 days away, are you done with shopping, spring cleaning your house, baking cookies and filling red packets with moolah? This year, I only managed to go to Pavillion to have a look at its CNY decor cause I heard there was a gigantic dragon in the center court!

Here's a few shots that I managed to get :D
The entrance looks so China Town-ish, I like! 

They have golden lanterns instead of red ones this year.
So this is the dragon that people has been talking about, ROARRRR!
Dragon is symbol of good fortune and sign of intense power.  In Eastern philosophy, the Dragon is said to be a deliverer of good fortune and a master of authority. — Source

Loving the combination of the golden lanterns with fake cherry blossom ♥

The dragon and its fireball ☼

A closer view of the divine beast!


I'm really excited for this year's CNY cause I will be celebrating it with the paternal's side relatives in Kuching this year. It's been a while since we were there. I think I've been on CNY mood since the beginning of the year :P Here I am right now at the airport, waiting for my flight to KCH at 3.30pm. Can't wait to see my family again!!

So to those who is driving or flying back home this weekend, have a safe journey and a great reunion with your family (: Dong dong dong qiang, the mighty year of Dragon awaits!

January Blues

It's that time of every semester again where I'm required to go for clinical placement at either a government or private hospital for four weeks. This time round, I'm posted at Kuala Lumpur General Hospital (HKL). A place where most the students dread to go, including myself. Most of our seniors and some of my classmates have been there and judging by their experiences, it sounded stressful and hectic. True story.

I have to wake up as early as 4.30am to catch the Uni bus at 6am. I guess it's time to adjust my bedtime to 9pm (omg I'm back to those years when I was a schoolkid!) and I guess this blog will be abandoned for quite some time.. Working hours: 8am to 5.30pm. We are required to hand in patient's record book daily and reflective diary once a week. We'll have one hour of lab skills session every day as well. We are required to memorize the entire 3 protocol care booklets' content in case the HOD questions any of us. Like seriously? Since I'll be on cardiorespiratory posting this time, I'll be handling most of my patients in the wards more often. Let's hope all those walking in the wards helps to shed some kilos since I've got no time for gym for this one whole month :P Yet on the bright side, I'll be seeing patients with different and rare cases compared to other hospitals no doubt. Hopefully I'll be able to overcome my fear to do suctioning on at least one patient if I'm allowed to do so, you don't even wanna know what suctioning is. Oh and my lecturers will be visiting twice a week, so it wouldn't be that bad ey? (:

My biggest wish is that I will survive. I may be discouraged or criticized at times but I guess that's the way of learning and gaining knowledge. Got this quote from a site saying that; By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest. I'll try to be optimistic and see things in different perspective. Never give up. To fall and get back up on my own. #2012resolutions Hopefully I'll survive and standing still at the end of the posting. I am not quite sure if I'm ready physically or emotionally but hell yeah bring it on!

January's going to be a wild ride. Wish me luck!

New Year Countdown

Happy New Year earthlings! So how has your first day of 2012 been so far? :D

Hopefully everyone had a blast celebrating New Year's countdown wherever you were last night cause I did! The boyf brought me to Desa Parkcity last night, according to him the fireworks there was really awesome since he has been there for two years in a row for NYE. Both of us hated jam so much that we tried to avoid going for countdown at malls like The Curve or Sunway Pyramid, even getting out of the carpark would take ages.

We headed out around 10-ish after our dinner with his family. We parked at the shoplots, slightly further from DPC to avoid the after party traffic jam. It took us around 15 mins to reach DPC lake by foot.

Are you ready to party like it's 2012?

Spotted this cute christmas decorations and some of the bears are actually moving :O 

I've never seen DPC so crowded before *gasping for oxygen* 

Just had to take a photo with this LED nutcracker, so cute (':

Saw a few lanterns in the sky, reminded me of Tangled! & just so you know, it's actually illegal to release these lanterns -_- 

We didn't know that they was a mini concert at the carpark, so we went over to kepo have a look. 

& it started snowing FFFFFUUUUUUUUUUU

So there was this dance competition, dance performances and a band called THUNDERSTORMS entertaining the crowd.  They sang a few of Pitbull's songs like Rain Over Me, On The FloorGive me Everything Tonight and Bad Romance by Lady Gaga. 

& it keeps snowing Double FFFFFFUUUUUUU *runs for my life*

The crowd was so HIGHHHHH meoww but I no like the songs you guys played!!

Y U NO play 2012 by Jay Sean? ლ(ಠ益ಠლ)

Look at the amount of people!! But it was pretty okay, not as packed as a can of sardines. 

(っˆヮˆ)っ Baby boy and I (´ε` )   

You gotta love this GIF I made :P
Until the very one last minute of 2011 at 11:59, we started countdown. 56, 50, 42....10, 9, 8, 7,
3,2,1...HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

Here comes the fireworks ╮((゜∀゜))╭
Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon ♫♪
One of my fave shot 

I'm so nice that I even recorded at 18 sec videos of fireworks for you guys //perasan LOLOL

I swear the fireworks is one of the best that I've seen in my entire life. What's even better I was watching it for the whole 15 mins in my baby's embrace <3 This is the first time we watch fireworks and welcome new year together *happy tears*

Too bad photos didn't turn out that nice, no thanks to my camera crappy fireworks mode functions T_T I even saw a heartshape fireworks *amazed*

#2012Resolution; New Year Kiss under the fireworks ☑

Ze aftermath (︶︿︶)   Y U NO throw them in the rubbish bin?

I feel so sorry for the cleaners who is gonna clean up this big mess done by a bunch of irresponsible people. Shame on you guys! I utterly, severely *couldn't find a better word* dislike this snow spray or whatever you call it, it's stinky, waste of money and it kills mother Earth!!! *rage* I seriously think it should be banned from the country, causing so much nuisance. What's so fun about spraying it around huh? Come I spray it into your mouth like whipped cream, you want? UGH 

Anyways, I shall not let this ruin my new year. It should be a happy new year, a fresh start and a new beginning. Here's to a great, peaceful and merry year ahead! All hail 2012, please be nice ✌
