Still in CNY mood cause I had pineapple tarts and other goodies for breakfast this morning.
Today's a do nothing day so I shall slowly dayre about what went on yesterday! 😊
The 🍍 tarts we painstakingly baked on CNY eve after all the mad rush for work was over. I'm glad we eventually did have time to make them though. It didn't feel like CNY until the smell of baking pineapple tarts started wafting through the house.
Feel a little zzz that we didn't have time to bake more to give out but it was really way beyond our physical and mental capacity.
It's both a good and bad thing I guess. Not having time to bake them.
Was reading through my older entries last night before bed and I saw this post about making pineapple tarts. Hahaha. Totally clean forgotten that I wrote that last year!
Can't. Stop. Munching. On. This.
Time to get back to working out!
Took the train to lunch yesterday. It feels nice being out and about, taking public transport. ☺️
I think it's been months since we've taken the train together. It's usually car or bike.
I wanted something Chinese for lunch since still CNY mood. Hahaha. And also because we did Tony Roma the night before.
So we went to DTF at Tampines Mall!
I always order this when I'm at DTF and he gave me the 😲 face when I said I wanted this. Hahaha. I don't think I managed to make him a convert of this but at least he didn't find it awful…? LOL.
It's called 小菜 on the menu if you wanna try! I promise it's nice. 😬
As always, XLB is a must. I love the one with crab meat!! 😍
And our favourite – fried rice with shrimps and eggs.
It was a great meal! 🤗
After lunch, we went on a mission. 📷
I'm working on a feature for couple watches for Valentine's Day (which I will be posting on IG and Dayre soon!!), and ZL had to become Instagram boyfriend just for a day.
He is totally not into social media and photo taking unless we're on holiday but he obliged because I told him that his face won't be included in the shots.
It was soooo difficult for us to have to take these lovey dovey shots LOL like how do all the IG couples do it……. 😂
Had to rope in his friend to help us with the shots and it was hard to stop ourselves from laughing out loud while posing for the photos. LOL.
I'll keep the rest of the shots for the actual feature but I think we did quite a decent job. Hahaha. Good job and thank you for your kind cooperation, my 朋友. 😘
And yesssss I changed my Dayre header to the photo above. 🤗
Heading out to chill in a bit!
Feels quite shiok to be able to dress relaxed instead of having to dress up since I've been doing that almost every day for a few weeks leading up to CNY.
Is tiring to do makeup and hair every day one okay. Being a girl is a tough job.
Okay gotta run, I'll talk to you guys later! ☺️
My first steamboat of CNY – of course it had to be with my dearest TTR girls!
Made a booking at Imperial Treasure because I found their service to be good and food was rather decent albeit pricey from my previous visit.
So glad we had full attendance yesterday!
Their sauce selection was not as abundant as HDL's but good enough.
We requested for spring onions but the funny waiter told us "no spring onions because supplier on holiday". No idea if he was kidding or not. Hahaha.
Worst sauce creation goes to Lili. Idek what's that. Looks gross 就对了. 😩
She added soup after that and it totally resembled wet concrete HAHAHA.
I believe I did a better job with the sauces. Hehe.
My must-order there – crispy fish skin!!
Just pop it into the hot soup for 3 seconds before popping it into your mouth. Best with the ma la soup base! 🙌🏻
And might I just add, the ma la soup there is the only ma la steamboat that I take! HDL's is just too overwhelmingly 麻 and 辣. Too much for me. I weak. They allow us to pick two different soup bases so we had ginseng chicken soup for the other pot!
The funny waiter was like "你们要不要先拍照?"
He then proceeded to arrange the dishes nicely on the table for us, waited for everyone to take photos before dumping the food into the pots for us.
Every time a new dish came to the table he'll go "这个要拍吗?" Hahahaha. 👍🏻 thumbs up for being social media savvy!
Group photo is a must since we only gather once a year.
So thankful for this bunch!! I know some of you read my dayre so… Thank you all for your hard work and dedication to TTR!! 😘❤️ I know I can always depend on you girls!
Also, funny waiter is funny. "有没有 beautycam?" People Instagram Boyfriend he Instagram Waiter. 😂
After dinner, everyone went to my place for traditional CNY activities. Hahahaha.
Guess who's always happy to have guests around the house?
"Come here Xiaobai, come give me luck!"
Everyone trying different means to attract her attention/luck. LOL.
Getting all the attention.
Before she lost our attention to these.
The biggest winner of the night goes to Clara!! LOL. 👏🏻 Is it come my house 骗钱 one. Hahahah. But it's all in the name of good fun! I think everyone had a good dose of fun last night. Was a happy gathering with them all! ☺️
I hope CNY was filled with fun and love for everyone! And that you collected many many many angbaos. 🍍
Now I gotta go figure out what to fill my days with since we're on a break from work. Whee.
