This week has seen its share of ups and downs, with the meter pointing south majority of the time. The grandma finally got discharged and after that, I spent some “me” time wandering around town to get some necessities but ended up mostly with food items. I did manage to locate some elusive facial masks at various Watsons outlets which saw $20 dumped into the money jar.
Macaron Nails to kick start the weekend.
Save for the coral, the rest are part of the “Pretty Naughty” & “Heavy Petals” Collections.
Found a quaint, freezing-cold restaurant near my place which serves decent Western food and cheap Waffle Ice Cream! You bet I’ll be spending most of my afternoons there, without being pestered by Milo every single minute to play ball.
Got me more Yankee Candles in the form of tealights, and stuck with my favorite Island Spa scent. I got these instead of the jars, since beads could half-fill the existing one I have, and then light a candle on top.
Bought small tangerines at the supermarket – sweet, pulpy and loaded with Vitamin C.
Finally, some Lo Hei time!!! I have been craving for it since late September, and the dish, Yusheng can now be found at most Chinese restaurants, as well as supermarkets where I got mine. Available mainly during Chinese New Year(which is 2 weeks away), it consists of shredded vegetables, strips of raw fish and assorted sauces and condiments.
Also dubbed as the “Prosperity Toss,” the Chinese would proceed to toss the ingredients into the air (the higher the better!) with chopsticks while saying auspicious wishes.
Cheers to a prosperous new year!
