How I spent my CNY eve
I woke up at 11.15 am today, due to a very "early" bed time.
I saw a message from M, that told me they were going to the factory outlet in Smithfield at 10.30am today. Oops~~~ I thought I was too late, but I gave her a call anyway to say sorry for reading the message late. Thank goodness I called, because they just left and still able to come and get me in 10 min.
It was a fruitful shopping day for me. My $20 wallet had to retire after 1 year ++ due to a broken part few days ago. I need to get mom a wallet too. I decided to go to Coach outlet to hunt for them since after using the bags, I really like the nice quality of the material.
Bought exactly the same model for me and mom, except hers is a black signature.
Mine is this signature zip around khaki & green wallet. Hope that it will bring me more 绿钞 for a New Niu Year.
The color of the monogram changes depending on the reflection of the lighting.
My favorite part is the interior of this bag. So green!
I know mom will love the one I bought for her too. ^_^ Really appreciate that M did the shopping with me. She gave very good opinions.
The whole trip was a great one as we have a super kawaii and smart girl with us. I will blog about her next time.
That evening, I decided to cook a one person "reunion dinner".
While eating my meal, I try to imagine myself was with my family.
Stir fried sambal beef with orange bell paper. Great stuff. Finished half plate.
Stir fried egg with onion and crispy small dried anchovies.
Mom said this sounds so pitiful to eat on a CNY eve. Well mom, little did you know this dish has one of the strongest sentimental value for me, as it reminded me of your homecook. This version of mine nothing near to hers, but it did the work.
Thick drop egg soup with mushroom and shrimps. I put a lot of black vinegar because I like to 吃醋.
After the meal, I did my laundry and cleaned the house. The final thing before the clock ticked 12 am, I cleaned myself.
Talking to my family over the phone was the best thing for me today. 75 Ah Pek probably just finished 风流快活 in a Kuching lang house eating good stuffs.
Ah Po, Happy Niu Year to you too. May you have a good time with Ah Gong and Sam Kiu.
