I'ts raining !!


Guess what ^__^! Rain has appeared front cover for Astro Magazine in the month of February^^. Rain was voted as the 100 most influential people of the world in TIME 100 Online (2008)and has gained more popularity since he ranked 2nd place after Shigeru Miyamoto (the guy who brought us Nintendo ayaii!). Stephen Colbert(rain's nemesis) came in third. Muahaha they're too funny ^^! I recommend you guys to watch these videos ;

He challenged rain to a dance-off agaga^^!


Year Of the Ox

Ox : 2009 is supposed to be my year but how come they're forbidding me to get into this neighbourhood ??!! &%$#@!! -.-' sigh,,
Gahaha i never tought an ox can read^^! Puhahaa this picture was taken in a neighbourhood called 'Crystal Bay' somewhere in Malacca when my family and I were searching for a good place for lunch.
It says "LEMBU DILARANG MASUK TANAH PERSENDIRIAN"(Oxen are not allowed to enter private property) muahaha :)). Poor poor ox ^^!
"Stop Stop!" my mom said, let's take a picture hahha! FYI, did you know that ox is called 牛(niu) in mandarin(pronounced as new) so this year is really a Happpy Niu Year ahaha ^^!

CNY 2009

Gong Xi Fa Cai & 新年快乐 to everyone^^! My family decided to have our reunion dinner at ama's house(my grandma's in malacca) this year due to the economic downturns. I find it satisfying as the food we had during the potluck was delicious haha^__^! Ama's delicious homemade chicken rice, butter crab brought from Bangsar Seafood(an all time fav), sushi(from Sushi king) bought by my singaporean relative, home made chicken rendang, baked sambal fish from a portugis settlement restaurant, and the most important of all : Yusheng(yee-sang). Yusheng is a mix of strips of raw fish (most commonly salmon), mixed with shredded vegetables and a variety of sauces and condiments, among other ingredients. There were also jelly fish in it :)) aik! Yusheng resembles abundance and prosperity as the chinese believes..I don't really enjoy eating it (it is sweet! agaga ^^!) but i do love tossing it ahhahha =) i guess it brings luck to do so. One of my aunt wished for good economy for the rest of the year hahha ^^! Most importantly I really enjoyed being able to get together with the ones i love at least once a year ♥♥ ^^!
