I was supposed to follow mom and dad to the market this morning. I woke up at 6 am, brushed my teeth, changes and went back to bed to wait (nap/sleep) for my parents to call me when they wake up. But they left without me. Lol.
I spent most of my day doing the laundry, hanging rounds after rounds of laundry and collecting them whenever they are dry. It was a nice sunny day for laundry today. I also cleaned the ceiling fans downstairs and also put up the curtains in Mel’s room.
When I write it down it doesn’t seem like I’ve done a lot. But when I actually do it, it feels like it takes forever to get done. I’m pretty much solely the extra pair of hands mom and dad have for the CNY preparations. I really need to work more efficiently to get things done.
My family had our early CNY Reunion Dinner with Uncle Jesmond and his family at this vegetarian restaurant called Fan Cai Xiang. Guess what, mom, Jon and I had a McD set meal at around 5 pm so at dinner time we were still stuffed. Awesome mom buys McD meals for her kids. Haha. Thank you mommy.
First dish was Yee Sang, also known as Yu Sheng or Lou Sang or Prosperity Toss in English (by Wikipedia). One of my favourite dish during the CNY season is Yee Sang cause I love the crunch in it. I don’t care if my portion has no salmon, as long as I have a decent amount of crackers in mine, that’s fine with me. Haha.
This is a vegetarian version of the Yee Sang. Plenty of crunch so I love it! Didn’t take any pictures of the rest of the dishes but all of them tasted good. Fan Cai Xiang is a good place to go if you’re looking for yummy vegetarian food.
After dinner we sat and chatted with pots after pots of Chinese Tea. Haha. When we got home, I helped dad feed the dogs. Here are some photos of Angel and Mireille that I took tonight. Angel is the tiniest and Mireille is the youngest.
I wanted to keep my shoes that I brought home in boxes. So I opened a box and put it on the floor, and Angel happily jumped in and settle down.
A photo of Mireille with Angel in the background. It’s so hard to capture animals, especially hyperactive dogs. Haha.
And here’s out miracle pup, Mireille.
