Miss being a kid? This is something to DIE for!! :)

Happy 2012 lovelies!

Here's the post about Christmas in Singapore that i've mentioned/promised previously.

Ever wonder how does Christmas 2011 in Singapore looks like?

Let me show ya a few pictures (very few indeed as i realized most of the pics are taken from my friend's camera FML) of X'mas mainly at Orchard Road.

I'm sure everyone knows where Orchard Road is, and it is very convenient to get to the exact place just by taking the MRT. It is the heaven of shopping where there are lotsa shopping malls around and you can purchase just about anything, from cheap goods to branded goods.

Basically Orchard Road was transformed into a garden of scintillating lights. Everywhere you turn, huge X'mas tree is there. And everything (literally everything from buildings to trees) were fully decorated with lights.

But that is not the main point.

What i actually wanted to highlight here is about a shop that i had instantly fall in love with, Candylicious.

(Honestly, i never knw that we have it here in KLCC and One Utama until i came back from my S'pore trip. #fml #outdatedmax)

Gigantic lollies!!

Jelly beans, anyone?

Hershey's? Me gusta!

I literally died looking at these. I want ALL!
Gimme ALL!! *rawrs*

Love the deco outside of the store.

Especially all these huge candies hanging from the branches right above your head.

I got blown away.

I spent approximately an hour in that shop...being all kiddo again.
*happy happy me*

(But this shop in S'pore is waaaaaaaay bigger than what we have here in KL. Like 5 times of that in One Utama. And the difference in terms of pricing? Obviously its cheaper in Singapore but not too much. Probably about three to four ringgit only.
Go check it out yo!)

Really, that pretty sums up my 2011. It has been a very interesting roller coaster ride, not too good on the first half year but throughout the last six months, it was definitely memorable. Thus, 2012, please be kind to me. Please be kind to the people around me, people that i care and people that i call family and friends.

And to you, let's brave through this year with full determination and with lotsa laughter. Cheers to us and many many years to come. =)

May all of you have a wonderful year ahead!


With love,

Happy Winter Solstice, EVERYONE!!

The title says it all!

So as i'm here sitting at my cubicle with only 1 task to do for the day, i might as well spend my time on my dearest bloggie!

Today marks the day where Chinese celebrate the Winter Solstice Festival or better known as Dong Zhi whereby we rolled the glutinous rice balls the night before. Fyi, this festival falls on every 22nd of December of the year, just 3 days before Christmas. And apparently this festival is bigger than our Chinese New Year but i guess the tradition is slowly fading eyh?

The glutinous rice balls, or better known as tong yuen, symbolized family unity and that the rounder the balls are, the stronger the ties were. Some tong yuen have fillings in em' be it powdered peanuts or mushygooey black sesame but as for my family, we always prefer the plain and traditional ones. No fillings and only comes in white and pink. This year's a tad extraordinary tho. We have green! But my lovely apple green turns out to be....disgusting green.

Anyways, that bowl of tong yuen is soooo good that you will definitely crave for more. Dearest mummy boiled it with ginger, palm sugar, pandan leaves and GULA MELAKA! You know how gula melaka does wonders right? It is that gooooooood! =D

Oh and eating tong yuen also means that you've grown a year older!


Have a great day ahead lovelies!

Have fun eating those balls balls.


Lots of love,
