January 2017 - Gong Xi Fa Cai! HUAT ah!!!

January was quite peaceful with nothing big happening. This month had lesser food hunt and food stuffing cause everyone are preparing to be stuffed during CNY. This year CNY came early at the end of January. But I don't like it that CNY day 1 and 2 fall on weekend. It will be good if it falls on Tuesday and Wednesday with Monday half day. XD

Before CNY, went exploring around Chinatown and of course walk into the CNY pasar malam to feel the CNY atmosphere and also to test the free samples of stewed mushroom, jellies and peanuts... 
We chanced upon this super old creepy antique shop which have an interesting banner. The banner says: We buy junk and sell antiques. Some fools buy some fools sell.
We didn't dare to enter cause later we kena sell. XD

Pretty CNY decor at buddha tooth temple.

CNY eve dinner. The meal I looked forward to most every year.

Next year I would like to siam CNY by travelling out after CNY day 2 since we had not much relatives to visit. I have found kaki but not sure if it will happen anot.

Good bye January 2017.

Rule #46 The Joy of being Low Maintenance

Inspired by: http://thoughtcatalog.com/johanna-mort/2015/03/19-things-only-women-with-a-low-maintenance-fashion-sense-understand/

1. You have three hairstyles: down, ponytail, and bun.

2. You have one pair of shoes that you wear with 95% of your wardrobe.

3. Most of your outfits are just some combination of t-shirts and jeans.
T-shirts and shorts. Hehehe! 

4. This makes getting ready massively easy. What are you going to wear? Throw on the first pair of jeans and t-shirt you can find. Put on aforementioned shoes. Boom. Done.
Yes, super fast and easy! 

5. Sundresses are also great because they look like you put more effort into getting ready, but you definitely didn’t.

6. You have to be very clear with your hairstylist that you need a cut that’s easy to maintain, because you’re not about that life. Your idea of styling your hair is making sure the part is nice, and if you’re feeling fancy, throwing a clip or headband up there.

7. You find make up a little terrifying. You understand the basics, and might even throw some on before leaving the apartment, but you once watched a YouTube clip about contouring and contemplated the existence of witchcraft.
No interest in make up. 

8. Whenever you hear that you have to wear heels to an event, you get considerably less excited.

9. Then you get all dressed up, and get kind of excited! Heels aren’t so bad! Your legs look so much longer! You should wear them more often!

10. And then about half way through the event, you remember why you hate heels, and wish you could just 127 Hours your feet, and hack them off with a dull pocketknife. It would probably hurt less than wearing these shoes for another three hours.

11. You envy that somehow men can get away with wearing Converse with a suit for certain occasions, because that’s the dream, honestly.
Yes, man fashion are more easy and simple. 

12. When your friends want to go out, your favorite thing to wear is a cool jacket over a t-shirt and your nicest-looking jeans.

13. Your friends relish the days when you let them dress you up. It’s like Christmas, but with dresses! And heels! And eyeliner!

14. Every time you dress up, you get a semi-Cinderella moment from your friends. Wow! You look so different! Who knew you had such a defined waist under all those sweatshirts! You should wear that more often!

15. The back of your closet is where all of your “nice clothes” reside. You pull them out for weddings and funerals, and that’s about it.

16. When you first got a job/internship that required you to dress “business professional” you cried a little bit because honestly what could you wear.

17. Then you figured out that you could rock “business professional” by mixing and matching a handful of items, and you’ve already mastered that technique.

18. You own contacts, but will often just wear your glasses, because you don’t feel like exerting the effort.

19. Going to the gym at the end of the day is really just an excuse to wear your comfy gym clothes for hours leading up to it.
