CNY Day 2 @ relative house (17th Feb)

Actually, I thought after going to my 三姑 house, will then go over to a relative (my mum's side) place.  But then, I was at my 三姑 place till evening.  So I thought I will go on the 2nd day.  Beside, every year, she will cook and serve those who visit her.  I have eaten so full at my 三姑 place, will not be able to eat again if I were to go over to her place.

CNY Day 1 @ 三姑 house (16th Feb)

Ever since the demise of my grandparents, every year, on the first day of Lunar New Year, we will gather at my 大伯 and 大伯母 house.  

My 大伯 and 大伯母 has two daughters and one son. One of the daughter and son has migrate to the United States while the other daughter is station in Shanghai.  The daughter and son in the United States has ask my 大伯 and 大伯母 to join them in  the United States.  So my 大伯 and 大伯母 has migrate to the United States.

It so happen one of my cousin called 小姑 to ask 小姑 things.  Then ask 小姑, Chinese New Year, how huh? 三姑,五叔 and 小姑 stays together.  So Chinese New Year Open House is at my 三姑 place.  三姑 mention no buffet as she's preparing lunch.

After my mum board the transport to the Day Care Centre, I make my way to PPHCSC to read newspaper, then to Bukit Timah Food Centre to look for my friend who runs a business there.  It has been a while since I went there.

Friend used to sell lor mee, but then change to sell chicken kway teow in clear soup.  I have yet to try that and thought of trying it.  Only to realize friend doesn't sell it anymore and change back to sell lor mee.  So I had lor bee hoon mee @ $3.50.

There's a stall selling muffins, cheese tarts, egg tarts, etc.  I was tempted by the cheese tarts, so order a chocolate cheese tarts @ $1.60.

Went to the Day Care Centre in the afternoon.  Tea break for the elderly is porridge.

Previous Monday, I wanted to have bo bo cha cha, it was sold out.  This round, same, sold out, so opt for whatever is available there, which is bubor hitam @ $1.70. Then off to attend class.

Craving for mutton, make my way to the halal coffeeshop.  Mutton briyani @ $6.50.

My mum appointment at the Polyclinic,blood  test.  After the test, she said wants to go home.  She wanted to tabao foods back to eat, but I prefer to eat at the place itself instead of tabao food back.  So told her, we eat finish then go back. She choose the Kopitiam Food Court at the Jurong East MRT station as it's the nearest to the Interchange.

She had shredded chicken with scallop porridge @ $4.  When I saw the porridge, I was like where's the shredded chicken, it's shredded till very thin.

I had dry u mian @ $4.50

Managed to catch a nap in the afternoon.  Has been very tired recently.

My cooking no eye see, can't post. Recently, has been blessed by a Church member for the dumplings.  Fry or steam, I like, but to be healthy, I steam it.

My mum was given a ticket for a senior event in the evening.  As usual, we went Church.

After service, instead of having our early dinner at Bt. Merah, I tabao a packet of chicken rice with a chicken liver at $3.50 back to eat, as for my mum, dinner is provided for her.

Brought my mum to the venue of the event.  Thought I will leave my mum there and come back after the event to bring her back.  Then an auntie told me that I could be around as there are those Ah Gong/Ah Ma helper who are there with them. 

Lao hei for the elderly, had a quick snap of it before they start to toss.

I need to fill up my fridge as it's almost empty.

Before going to the supermarket, had bento set, Saba fish, chicken cutlet with rice and fruit.

After buying grocery, a piece of Sundae Pie @ $2.95.

The mandarin oranges come in box of 36 which I find too much, so the guy was mentioning how about I take 18, 18 is ok for me.  So he sold me at $12.50.  Box of 36 selling at $23.80.

Bought this 风信子 @ $3.50 at Bangkit Road.  Usually I will buy it every year.
