Returning to Beijing

It  is back to the double beds single occupant scenario again. Sis has returned to Bejing to continue her TCM studies there. Thank goodness she was really looking at having a well deserved holiday and rest back home, if not I was kinda anticipating if she would run acupuncture trials on me, you know 灵床试验? =P

Anyway, it was quite an eventful night at the departures. We "abused" the baggage weighing scale at the entrance by measuring our own mass instead... lol... Then I was stopped short by a Chinese couple seeking directions and had to act like some interpreter between the airport staff and them for a while. I realised I was Vocab-limited. Blah!

My sis and her mates got into some overloading problem at the check in point. They were off-scale by 8kgs in total. It ended up with them unpacking stuff which was really kinda funny. Every luggage was packed full with food items. It looked like they were all prepared to go to some war zone.

Then someone's backpack had to burst at its seam which got everyone stumped. Thankfully, there was a "heroine" to the rescue. While everyone was fretting what can be done, I was quick-witted enough to think of removing the rubber strings lacing the front to tie around the bag. I supposed that will hold it well till they reach their place in Beijing. I think I impressed brother with my crisis management skills. He muttered a "Great thinking sis".  *proudz

Never forgetting some last moment pictures.

I cannot recall what we were laughing at. 

Presenting the Sim siblings.

Aren't very good with self taken shots. 
Had to resort to a 3rd party help for the perfect sibling shot.

Papi and Mami

Already missing us. Went through the gates and still wanna take pictures.

ZG brought some betel/Areca nuts to work.
Adrian was the first brave soul to try it and he got light headed.

Despite the said side effects from chewing, I took my first bite. The immediate reaction I got was to puke. Wah lao.... It really makes one feel like regurgitating but I was told to overcome and push on. As I thought I made quite good progress, the constriction in my throat and esophagus took me by surprise. I didn't go beyond 1 min. lol!

Now I'm kinda high and dizzy as I'm typing this. I have an official reason to sleep at my desk for a bit now. =P
Not something I would wanna do again but it was quite an interesting experience.

Reunion Dinner and CNY

Thanks to my sister, she has uploaded pictures of CNY this year. If not, I'll probably take ages or perhaps not do it at all... =P

Reunion Dinner Night

With cousin Eldrick. I call him the Soya sauce man. He and his brother takes literally anything with soya sauce.

He looked so "Ah Pek" here drinking Teh... I have never met a kid at that age that drinks Teh lor!

My uncle maximizing the time my sis is back. 宁可杀错,不可放过 attitude. 

The spread.


In the car to my maternal Grandma's place

My favourite Ah Ma. =) The one who saw through my toddler years.

The uncle who love his nieces. We are a scarce breed in the family... Hiak hiak hiak.

Money earning losing time for the kids. Red is the big winner this year.

Vegetarian Lou Hei. 

A full vegan affair this year. A great way to start the new year. =)

Am happy with a simple meal like this... =)

I have heard him speak before. Quite like him till he touched on something which I find disrespectful (The congregation laughed along... duh...). I wasn't impressed from that point. And not surprisingly, that same attitude and speech got him into trouble now.

When you are someone with higher power, you bear greater responsibility. I always think that the higher factions of each religious group would be more sensitive and aware of the role they have to play.

I imagine someone else from my religion saying the same thing, I would equally lose my respect for him/her. If it is a friend, you get it from me.

Religion UNITES people not separate them.... It is so simple yet why do some not understand that?

Yoga Dogs

Chao sent this link:

Yoga poses with Dogs.. Look kinda painful but I totally love the Yorkshire! Cos it looks like cai cai!!!!

This one's funny cos the Parson Terrier looked so resigned...

Loads of pictures to upload and yet I'm just plain and super lazy.
Blame it on all the food I've been getting. Will try to do some backdated post if I ever find that mode again. =P

Waiting for my pictures... Hope they turn out nice nice nice! And I'm still wondering how the promotional video I took for NTU is turning out. Wrinkles are starting to give me nightmares....

*Clears throat.... Er Hm....
I just spent on a WANT and perhaps a NEED. I hear Suze Orman screaming down at me right this moment but like I care or remember her words....

I finally gotten myself the Portable Grand that I have been eye-ing for a million years. YEAH!

I haven't the least idea how this huge thing is gonna fit into my puny room full of shelves. Make way! It is coming nevertheless. Am sure my siblings wouldn't mind this new inclusion. They get to benefit from the slurge anyway.

This perhaps kick starts my next few months of frugal spending yet and again.
*mumbles the mantra.... Less is more... Less is more... Less is more...

On a side note: Fly cheap with Air Asia! See the Advert ------> Check Check it out yah!
