Not far away

Chinese New Year is not too far away if you are looking at the calendar. 3 weeks sounds long but trust me, it isn't.

Last weekend, we did some shopping in the mall. Mostly for me, Jan and my man. We had bought the boys' stuff last year so it was our turn to buy new clothing and shoes.

We spent half day in the mall, walking and shopping till we drop! 


The decoration in this mall wasn't ready yet.  Maybe if we have time, we will drop by again and by then, the decoration would be in full force.


We spent most of our time in the departmental store. By the time we were done, it was late in the afternoon and everyone was pretty tired from walking.


We went to Kuching Flavours for our late lunch.  The place wasn't full then so it wasn't long queue to collect our food.


Simple and fast lunch. Ah Suan Chicken Rice. Steamed drumstick rice for me.


And cangkuk manis with egg as side dish.

My girl went for the fried chicken rice.


After lunch, we went to catch a movie. Aquaman!

By the time we finished the movie, it was around 630pm. On the way home, we stopped by this road side house's kolo mee stall for a quick dinner.


The road side house just before St Garland school, Batu Kawa for its special kolo mee and big bowl of dumpling soup.


And our loot of the day. It was a fruitful outing, I have to say. ^^



We had done with the new clothing. Next, would be some goodies and tidbits shopping. Another day for that.

I have not bought any CNY clothes yet. I only managed to buy fancy Ang Pow envelopes.
Looks like I will buy those red with piggy faces T-shirt that are only sold at pasar malams. I noticed most department stores avoid selling them.

That special kolo mee does look so good! Yes, the CNY decor has gone up and they are playing the songs everywhere now. Just this morning, the lady at the bank asked me if I would like to reserve some new bank notes - I guess you get yours from your hubby, no problem at all. We're not celebrating this year, not one year yet since my mum passed away.

3 more weeks. OMG. I am so not ready. Nothing has been done yet. No house cleaning yet, no new clothes, no nothing but the malls over are mostly ready with their beautiful decors already.

I have not been going around to look at the CNY decorations this year. I had bought my CNY clothes and two bedsheets, one for myself and one for my mom. Bought two piggy CNY decorations and that is all. Have not started spring cleaning yet, gosh less than three weeks in fact.

Mun, it was nice movie. I think we all agree that we enjoyed it.

Ez Vina said...

Wow, lots of shopping, I loike!

How was Aquaman? Did the kids enjoy it? This will be the 2nd CNY without my Popo. So, we will probably get together at my aunt's house. During such celebrations, our elders are usually the focal point. Without them, it somehow loses some lustre.

It really is much closer than I thought! All the best for your preparations.

Thanks for your reply. Good to know that all of you enjoyed the movie!
