Long procastinated post

Guess what I'll post about today? Finally about my China trip back in April from the 20th all the way to 2nd May with my family.

Defintely not a good holidays. Not because the group is not nice, not because the scenary is lousy. Its just plainly DYNASTY TRAVEL SUCKS BIG TIME! Yet til now they refused to refund me 1 full day of my tour package. Can you imagine having to miss your intended itinerary but sit in the coach for 7 hours to reach another destination BUT...still ended up waiting for almost 3 hours walking around in strange and lousy shopping district, topped with waiting in KFC. All because? Because the dear tour guide wanted to earn extra pocket money when my family, we refuse to go. Spoilt my whole holiday mood... haiz..

Nevertheless, I still have some pleasant memories of the trip. Here are some photos to share

Ops baby...

I'm so guilty that I have not post anything for close to 2 months! Seriously very, very, extremely busy. During my free days, I'll just want to be alone, doing my own stuffs, crafting, swimming, cycling, cooking.

Let's see what have I achieved these 2 months.

- Chinese new year celebrations
- my dear cute cousin's birthday (bring the 2 gals to Illuma, Empire State. Ordered the super big burger as her birthday cake. Her expression is beyond words can described when she saw the waitress serve her 'cake')
- my long awaited family portrait with 3 of us in graduation gowns
- my daddy's lunar 60th birthday
- started my 8 lessons of ceramic class
- went Bangkok with my elder sister and came back with 69.6kg check-in luggage
- started my 1st driving practical and really had fun. Definitely looking forward to more sessions (though sometimes I really feel my hands are like my legs and vice versa. hahaha)

What's coming up next for April? That's the long planned family trip to Zhang Jia Jie, Xiamen. Finally, we get to travel together, all 6 of us. I'm really looking forward... Meanwhile I'm trying hard to consolidate and update my PassionQuirks blog. Same as for this blog.

I'll be back with photos.

Gong Xi Fa Cai to all!

Hi folks,

Gong Xi Fa Cai to all reading my blog. Hope you had fun these 4 days and still counting. Let's do some quick summary about my few days of celebration.

Eve: half day of work and back home for some scrappy moments before steamboat reunion dinner. Nothing interesting also cos I went back crafting after dinner :D just so in crafting mood.

1st day: went hubby's uncle house for visiting then to my grandma house. As usual, tons of feasting going on.

2nd day: went my uncle's place for potluck lunch. Shiok!!! Then back home for BBQ session with hubby's relatives. Tiring day.

3rd day: no visiting, my adorable cousin treated lunch at EmpireState with her 1st parttime salary. So sweet of her. Meet up with my old pals at T2 Sakae. So nice catching up again.

4th day: I'm rotting at home!!! :D
