Hi ppl :) It’s the weekend and I’m being a good girl at home blogging and watching CSI Miami.
Nah….. truth is Calvin is at a camera workshop now at Central Market. Leng and others are busy with work. Sis is colouring her hair now. Mum is watching TVB series online and dad is not home yet from his morning & outstation golf. Okay, mum and dad part is not important cause even if they are free, they won’t go shopping with me. Add that to exaggerate a bit and show the world how lonely I am at home. Oh yeah, Baby is sleeping on the sofa behind me while I have to sit on the floor. Yeah… princess Baby.
Yesterday is my first time of CNY grocery shopping. Mum don’t have such tradition cause we don’t have visitor during CNY. Maybe a few but not much. Maybe it’s because we’re at Ipoh during CNY and most of our relatives are there. Calvin’s family will be celebrating CNY at KL this year and there will be guests for the first few days of CNY. So I accompanied Calvin and aunty for CNY grocery shopping at Parkson yesterday. She bought a lot of new decorations for the house and both me and aunty were busy ransacking the whole rack of decoration while Calvin just stood there and look at us. I think he still don’t understand the difference between the apple one and the flower one. Haha.
Yesterday is also a meaningful day for me. As you can read from the title, there is another new family member to my bag family :)
And it’s from Coach. I’m not really a big fan of the boring Coach but their Poppy collection is really cute and pretty.
Actually there is no bag. Due to CNY, Calvin spent a lot on clothing (he has more shirts than me okay), he can only settle with these key chains
Really cute right? Well, I’m really happy with Coach key chains. Love everything with lots of heart. Haha.
Okay…. actually there is a bag. Here it is, my new bag….
The real thing is expensive okay. Only manage to get this bag which they always keep the expensive bag in them. And also got the huge paper bag.
Okay okay okay. I know it’s not funny. I’m just trying to keep my excitement and happy level as low as possible. Hehe.
Tadaa….. my new bag that comes with those pretty key chains. My perfect Valentine’s day present. I know that I should have go with the traditional big C all over the bag and pink/beige/white/black lining on the side and handle. It can go a long long way with me and won’t run out of season. But when it comes to bag, I love those really nice and pretty one. Even though it may not be “hit” when they change season but I absolutely love this bag. I don’t really care about what season it is. Same reason why I choose my pink Gorilla a.k.a Gucci :) I absolutely can’t say no to this bag. It’s a big tote as well. Perfect for all my stuff and my nintendo DS, which I carry around all the time.
Mum, if you are reading this, Calvin bought this for me. I did not pay anything for it. It’s my Valentine’s Day present from him. I did not use my bonus yet. You still get a share of my bonus, as promised. Am saving the rest of my bonus. Okay? Hehe. *pats own head for being a good girl*
Calvin looks really good with the new bag. He smiled till eyes turn into a thin line and only showing all teeth. Haha. The thing is, he thinks the bag is really pretty as well. He gave me a lot of opinion on things that I choosed okay. Instead of the usual “Okay lor”, he will say “Look like aunty”, “colour very ugly”, “pretty leh” etc. That’s why I love shopping with him. Hehe.
Blah…. the purpose of this post is not to show off but just share my happiness with you all about my new bag. If you think I am showing off and angry about it, go read someone else’s blog. If you know me well, there is absolutely nothing in this world (object wise) that can make me happy and go crazy other than pretty bags. It’s not about the brand. My vintage bag from Sunway Pyramid is brand-less but I still love it very much. When the button in the middle of the bag was spoilt, I’m really sad and frustrated about it. I searched high and low for a replacement, which at this moment I failed so far. I love all my bag very much. I treasure each and every of them very much regardless of how much they cost and if they are really branded stuff or not. Like I said, it’s not about the brand or the season. It’s about the prettiness and cuteness of the bag. The reason I’m being so emo is because certain people who don’t know me that well but judge me according to the bags I carry. I’m being labelled as materialistic and high maintenance all the time. But after sometime, I got really fed up and stop responding to such comments. My principle is only 1. No fake stuff. I can go for brand-less or unknown brand but imitation is a big no-no for me. That’s all. Simple as that. Okay, stop complaining and emo-ing about all the stupid comments. Billy and Calvin are right. I can’t please everybody. I just do my part right and it’s all that matters. I can’t control what people think and say.
Late food update. Hehe. Visited Room 18 at Mid Valley last week. Was anticipating for the siew yok but then it’s sold out. Luckily I’m not hungry that day. Had late lunch from work. So ordered simple dishes as Calvin’s dinner.
Their food are really good. There is none of what we ordered that is not good or so-so. It’s really good. Will be back to try the rest, especially siew yok :p
Absolutely love the soup as it’s really clear. Not too sweet, not too salty etc. Just right, well at least for me. Calvin found it a bit tasteless. Haha.
Visited Papa Rich as well. I have only been to Papa Rich once for drinks and did not ate anything. Decided to have our dinner the other day. Initially Calvin can’t remember the name of the place. All he remembered was Lim. I cranked my head and came out with Uncle Lim, Ah Pek Lim, Lim’s restaurant. Then he said maybe not Lim!!! Terrible man la!!! Then he said “Neh, the one that starts to have more outlet all over the place and famous for bread”. Then I said “Papa Rich is it?”. Then he said, “yes yes yes”. Haihh… How do one relate Lim with Papa or Rich? No idea. Haha.
Our food. My dry curry noodle tasted a bit weird. Like burnt curry or something. Haha. But Calvin said there’s nothing wrong with the curry taste. Well, we have slightly tiny bit of difference when it comes to food tasting. Haha.
One of my favourite craving for all time. Subway sandwich. Love them because I get to choose what toppings I want. No cheese of course!! Guess what, my parents suggested to have dinner here last weekend. It totally shocked my sis and Brandon koko. BUT!! They always choose good food when I’m not around for dinner. So unfair okay. Hehe. But it’s okay. Am glad that my parents can accept Subway, especially dad a.k.a China Man of the house. Serious!! A meal of western food (steak) can’t satisfy his hunger for long. He will be searching for food all around the house by 9 something at night. He must have rice or noodle for dinner. Haha. Welcome to the Subway gang, my dear Mr and Mrs Ho :)
That’s all for this week
complaints updates. CNY is just around the corner. Everybody is rushing for the final preparation for CNY. Have fun!!
