Miscellaneous Picture #34: January favourites

January is a month of celebration, so I am celebrating it with this delicious cider drink. Tasted like Zapple with an alcoholic ting to its taste.


We also spent a lot this month especially on the house. Bought new basin, bath rack, kitchen utensil but the most expensive one have to be this! Bought a couch for the family hall so the kids would be spending more times on it.



A friend came back from Shanghai holiday and bought me this lipstick pouch. Used to have one too when my dad bought me one many years ago but it was torn and I have thrown away. Now I have a new pouch to keep not one but two lipsticks in it!


CNY is more than 2 weeks away and I am sure most of you have gone for new clothing shopping. It has been few years since I stopped shopping extensively for new clothings but I must at least get myself a new dress. So this is my new CNY dress. A one-piece dress with lovely gold and black waist-band look and opaque wide trim.


When was the last time I saw people sold this childhood favourite meat?? Hardly! So, how happy I were to see this in my night market one night. But still cannot beat the original one in the Main Bazaar market.


It is actually char siew with liver. Not sure why it was called "wrapped duck's feet" as directly translated from Hokkien as it was neither both.

I don't take the liver part so I would separate the char siew and the liver that tied with edible string and just eat the char siew.

Ooooo...I love that! Used to buy at the stall beside Open Air - they pushed it all the way from their house at Rubber Road. I loved the liver...with a slice of fat inside. Slurpsssss!!!! Lovely couch! Feel like getting one too.

Nice couch Rose! :)

I love this kind of couch, it's very nice to the touch, unlike leather.
