Random Updates – 22 Jan 2020

My luck seems to be going up and down like a roller coaster. Just last week, the stars seemed to be aligned for me. I dodged two bullets, two days in a row!   On the first day, I had parked my car and was about to walk to pay at the parking machine when I saw a DBKL officer who was a few cars behind me who didn’t see me. Thank goodness I saw him, else he would have issued me a ticket when I walked to the parking machine. I quickly paced to him to tell him that I was about to pay and told him not to issue me with a ticket.  On the second day, I had double parked for less than 5 minutes right outside a pharmacy to help the mil get an item in a jiffy. When I got out, I saw a DBKL officer who was a split second away from clicking on this camera to snap a picture of my car number plate before I stopped him on the tracks 😅

But this week has been bumpy for me. Things have not been going too smoothly the way I wanted them to be. My emotions  have been running high (no thanks to some unreasonable people who keep driving me potty!) and with wires getting crossed with them. And when your emotions are in a mess, you tend to run into deeper shit with the same people, which make things all mangled up and even more shitty.  Then it struck me that I had to collect my wits and sort out my emotions rationally, take deep breaths and pray. Glad that all’s well again now and I’m looking forward to our yearly pilgrimage back to our hometown tomorrow to celebrate Chinese New Year with my family.  Bring on the traffic jam. I think I’ll need to strap on a diaper to avoid the crazy queues at the rest and relax toilets 🤫

Alycia helping grandma decorate the house. The mil hardly spends her time in KL during CNY. She’d normally be in Hong Kong and traveling to Japan. This is one of the rare years that she’s around during CNY.

This new pup at the pet shop is my latest stress buster. It’s been at the pet shop for almost a month and I want to own it so badly!  I can feel my stress melt away just by looking at this super duper adorable pup. Whenever I’m upset and stressed up, Cass would ask me to visualize this pup  😆Do you know what breed of dog it is?

We had our second loh sang of the year at Restoran Pik Wah (MABA) last Sunday, just the four of us. Alycia was out shopping with her friends and Sherilyn had to attend at PT3 seminar at University Malaya.  Hubs seems to be crazy over loh sang this year. Perhaps he’s hankering for more good fortune and moolah going into his bank accounts.🤑

Sharks fins soup

Braised herbal chicken with fried wanton. An odd and never-heard-of combo but the fried wanton goes really well with the chicken gravy.

Braised pork belly with salted fish in clay pot.

Stir-fried vegetables with garlic. We ordered takeaway fried rice for dinner and it was burnt and bitter. The entire packet of fried rice (RM25) ended up in the bin and we had to eat CNY cookies for dinner instead.  Note to self – to complain to the restaurant’s captain the next time we dine there, which will be next week!
