Chinese New Year Eve Dinner

On the Eve of The Chinese New Year, it is very important for families to get together for this particular dinner. Feuds and politics aside, everyone sits down, shuts their mouth and try to have a peaceful dinner with their elders or parents. So, I am not surprised that many stranded Chinese were quite upset for not being able to go home.

Its been quite some time since we all forgo cooking our own dinner an dpreferred to eat outside instead (imagine the amount of dishes and cutlery I had to wash, even during the cooking!) since there were a lot of dishes which was beyond our skills.

So, we had ours at Janbo (Sri Petaling) and this time, I really fully appreciated the "Buddha Over The Wall" dish instead of the usual Shark's Fin soup with or without the real shark's fin.

1. After that, it was down to the usual treat of watching some fishes.
2. Abalone? It looked gross as it slides up wards in the tank

1. Minutes after coming home, Kaelynn went out like a light

Happny Chinese New Year!

Its minutes before we close for the Day as today is the Eve of the New Year. Boss asked us to clear our tables, clean, etc. and that sort of stuff. After that, any stuff like old metal bits and electronics, we sold it to the junkyard people and got RM50.20 for the lot. Not bad as we've been throwing them in bins for years.

After that, once I looged on and saw my salary came through (Yahoo!), I paid all my bills and quickly went out to buy some New Year stuff for the family. I wanted to buy a Nikon remote but after having second thoughts, I don't really need it. Moreover, the horrendous traffic jam outside in Kepong convinced me not to go too.

This is the first Mandarin Orange I peeled when I came
to the Office this morning. As the Year of the Rat is
here, all I saw were squashed rats on the road, from
day old dried to minutes gore. Yucks. Maybe its
going to be a bad year. Ha ha ha ha

The electronics stuff on my table that I cleared
and sold to the junkyard. Notice the blue Apple
Mac in the background? Oh, theres a lot of flies
flying about the aluminum cans and they smell
of beer.........

OK, I was "caught" taking these photos which I quickly
removed the DS card, claiming I was testing my broken
camera. I think they're not conviced but anyway, for
I got all these goodies. Erm, from left is soy-sauce
crackers (8), my onion crackers (10), prawn crackers (13)
some biscuit sweets (4+4), jellied fruits (8, I think), seaweed
crackers (13) marshmallows( 12). I did not count the cost but
I paid RM92 and went out fast in case they want to catch me
for the camera act.

After I have cleaned my tables, etc. this is how it looked
There will be more junk piling up my table soon!!! Oh! I
just got a surprise And pow from Boss already!
Kong Hee Fatt Choy!!!

The wound (Healed)

If you do not know about the wound and witnessed the
incident, you would have missed it. Unless you happen
to be in a busy-body mood and asked about the uneven
and smoothed edges


Assuming I see these streaks, I think someone was speeding the night before.
