CNY: 10th to 24th Feb 2013

haven't been blogging much so i tot i'd do a post abt smtg more recent, before clearing the backlogs of things i want to blog but haven done so!

psst... changed my blogskin and my header! love my header! the tinkerbell graphic is so pretty~

anyway, the year of the snake has dawned upon us! i dun like snakes but the year ahead promises to be a good one for my chinese zodiac apparently.. tho i don't really feel like it has been good so far~ everything was not going well 2-3 weeks ago and only turned to be normal this week.. wld be happy with just normal actually.. haha

every CNY i'd try to bake something.. this time i tried baking cornflake cookies again! well, cuz i like to eat them.. haha.. and pineapple tarts requires too much effort!

all the ingredients needed!

tried the my melody cookie cutter! turned out cute but not the correct batter.. lol

yay~ made a batch of koko krunch ones which was not bad!
just go google cornflake cookies recipe and i'm sure u'd find a nice one
also tried making those seaweed cracker thingy..
really easy to make tho i can't achieve the right crispyness!
just kiap seaweed between spring roll skin and "glue" them together with egg white..
then fry it! super simple
and as usual, went to do my nails! just did a simple mani/ pedi cuz i din wanna pay too much for more exquisite designs.. so after tt, i just pasted nail stickers over!

super love the nail stickers!
so easy to paste n looks so good! gonna buy more~
anyway m manicurist commented tt i'm the first in days who never choose pink or red polish~ lol!
red is not my lucky colour anyways

close up~
oh and i also bot the Naked Eyeshadow Palette by Urban Decay finally!
been eyeing it for a while now..
quite ex tho.. $80!
but i really like brownish eyeshadows =)
Chu Xi
my #ootd!
dress from which was too short for me so i wore it as a top together with a bandage skirt
love the intricate lace design in front!

 cutest snake decor we cld find!
Reunion Dinner this year was at Lai Huat @ Boon Keng area.. din really enjoy it cuz we were all sitted under a big tent with the tables too close for comfort.. plus, NO AIR CON! stuffy and hot~ i'd really have preferred staying home and having steamboat, like 90% of singaporean families.. lol

Chu Yi

anyway we were bored and made this montage to remember CNY 2013...presenting, CNY 2013's best way to kill time during visiting!

competition is intense amongst the cousins and nieces/nephews man!
my "niece" amy is dam lihai at it la.. she is always slightly ahead of me so i always feel the need to try and overtake her.. lol
thanks to tt "motivation", i've cleared all the stages on the mobile app! currently on stage 246!
after tt, followed mum to RWS casino and lost alot! boooo...really no gambling luck.. anyway i feel like it is easier to win in overseas casinos leh.. dunno why..

Chu 14 marked the last time i played bj this CNY! and i FINALLY WON $$!! $6 nia but its an achievement ok.. lol

and then yuan xiao jie was spent having dinner with the fam! da bao-ed yu sheng and had steamboat with the leftover food from Chu 13! i can eat steamboat everyday la
that marked the end of the 15 day CNY festivities! i really love CNY cuz of the new clothes, ANG BAOs (best thing abt not being married is tt u can take angbao and no need to give!), food.. and most of all.... PUBLIC HOLIDAY (= no need work)!!
wishing all of you a smooth sailing, happy, healthy and lucky Snake Year ahead!
