My dad has this CNY tradition of starting the visitings early. (Anyone else is the same??!)
So I'm up at 8am despite only sleeping at 3.30am this morning.
😴 First day of CNY with dark circles decorating my face. Lol. People bring two oranges, I bring two dark circles.
Okay. I'm ready to sleep it all off.
Bring them to me! 👋🏻
Hopped over to Chinatown spontaneously after dinner last night with my friend and his parents! I was so excited because I haven't been to Chinatown on CNY eve before.
Thought that the atmosphere would be great with jam packed streets and vendors screaming and hawking CNY goodies and decorations.
The streets look scarily crowded BUT not really!! It was surprisingly manageable (maybe because we were there past midnight??) and we survived it well. Hahaha.
All the decorations!!
Really feeling the CNY vibes woohoo. Too bad mum bought hers already, else I would have lugged a whole bag of these home!
I did however, get this for her!
She has been wanting a cute chicken/rooster (?) plushie for CNY and this was the cutest I saw.
My mum is a kid at heart laa LOL.
"这个很像 mediacorp 的那只咕叽咕叽 leh!!"
"Errrrr ma I wouldn't know cause I don't watch mediacorp 😂😂"
Here's lil chicky saying 恭喜发福 eat till you drop and may the God of Fortune help you fend off any unwanted pesky questions during visiting later!
Talk to you guys later. My dad impatient to leave the house already. Every year also. 🙄 Dk where he rushing to.
Freshly painted nails from last night.
Can't believe I slept at 4am (after painting nails and talking to ZL over the phone) and was up at 8am just now.
The hardest part of being a girl is having to look fresh and bright when you're feeling like shitzxz inside. That's a very important life skill. Lol.
And yes hehe same dress different day!! Of course I'm dressed in #TTR!
With the little sissy in the backseat!
Because CNY is a legit reason to selfie. ✌🏻
First stop of the day and I'm already feeling damn full. My belly is full from all the snacking.
Idk what sorcery is this but THIS IS SO GUD GUYS.
It's salted egg yolk coated chips!!!
Asked my cuz where she bought it from and she said it's from the bak kwa shop 香味.
GO BUY!! But don't blame me for the calories. Really yummy omg can't stop helpppp. 😩
Really feeling the CNY vibes this year! Hehe.
Woke up this morning to texts from friends who are dressed in TTR today. I'll be stalking both #TTR and #thetinselrack diligently on Dayre and IG today so remember to hashtag/tag us!
Too many snackzzz at grandma's.
They twinning in TTR!
My mum is wearing another version of the Althea Lace Dress which eventually didn't make the cut. So it's the one and only piece in this world. 😂
My talented cousin in law made these cute little chicky pineapple tarts!!
HEHE she wore TTR too!! 🙌🏻 She specifically bought the Halia Lace Romper to match her daughter's lace romper. 😍
So cute how to eat??? I stared at this for a good 5 minutes and took a good 10 photos before I finally popped it into my mouth.
My grandma came over and held my hand. 🤗🤗🤗
She took care of me when I was little so I picked up a little Hokkien.. So glad I did cause now I can converse with her albeit my vocab quite basic. But good enough as compared to my sisters. 😂
It's actually a pretty useful life skill eh. Some elderly can only speak in dialect and I think it's sad when their grandchildren cannot communicate with them at all.
We were sitting side by side watching TV when she leaned over and whispered, "你有没有朋友?"
Idk why but the older generation refers to boyfriends/girlfriends as 朋友 LOL. So funny. Is it a thing???
Although I think they totally won't be able to communicate verbally. Hahaha.
Saw a mother daughter pair wearing matching TTR and I was so psyched!! Hehe.
They were wearing the Azalea Kimono Romper and Leanna Flare Dress in Navy Florals. So cute!!
Today's huat #ootd!
Sorry it's this dress again. Hahahah. Can't get enough of this obviously. But hey, at least different colour!
Add the oranges for more CNY feelz.
Only realised that we did the same face after I saw the photo. Hehe.
Is it telepathy!!!
My yearly sisters #ootd with @jongsy! 😘😘
LOL CANDID FURREAL 😂
So glad that I went back to blonde just in time for CNY.
Messy windswept hair don't care. Wanna show yall the mesh insert detail on the dress!! Hehe. ❤️
This year's situation…….. 😨
Can't believe the sorts of questions I've been getting. LOL.
What's the most wtf question you got this year?
My once a year family portrait. 👨👩👧👧
I guess that's why CNY always has a special place in my heart compared to all the other holidays and festivals. It's the once in a year where we get to eat together at the same table and the once in a year when my dad doesn't mind taking photos.
Lolol I cannottttttt 😂 this @missgoob damn ownself. She says in her mind he is always zi long. #whoiszilong
Seems like I'm not alone when it comes to the "朋友" thing! Lolol. Told ZL about it and he said he hasn't even hear of it before. 😂
Got to meet him for a couple of hours after all the visitings. Happygirl89 because I haven't seen him for so long (okay actually only one week lolz)! Going to sleep a happy girl now. GOODNIGHT EVERYONE! 😘
