281211 - Namo namo namo...

Wishing for... secret :P

271211 - Opera

I like masks.. Boo!


261211 - Shoes

Ya, shoes again..
Anyway I'm unhappy with this online purchase; the colour shown was peach/pink but when I got the shoes..... the actual colour is... 

Now what am I going to do with this pair of shoes? It fits nicely though...

221211 - Pork Phobia

I have Pork-Phobia
Every meal I ate in China contains pork, even vegetables are fried with pork fat. 
They say in winter, pork keeps you warm but I doubt so because I don't feel any better after meals.

I want to eat vegetables, only vegetables for a month when I am home..

241211 - Songstress

An old lady came into our room while we were having dinner in a restaurant and said she could sing for us at 10 yuan per song. I said "No thank you" but I wasn't being taken seriously, she continued to convince us how lovely she would sound. I looked at my boyfriend, he gave me a helpless look, I know he couldn't refuse an old lady but that was a bad day, you know, time of the month and I was cold, hungry, tired etc.. I told the old lady nicely that we would like to have dinner peacefully. She refused to leave and started to sing!

~ Ding! ~

I walked out of the room furiously to ask for the restaurant owner. "I really want to have dinner quietly could, you please ask her to leave?" The owner didn't come in at once and I knew it right away that this must be a pre-arranged nuisance. Owner came in a while later and the song is over, Mr Boyfriend paid her 10 yuan and it's over. Comes to think of it, we should have just given her 10 yuan and ended the hoo-ha.

After dinner, another old lady (picture above) hopped in again! "Let me sing you a beautiful song as beautiful as you, that you have never heard of with my beautiful voice that could melt your heart.." Omg.. again.. Mr Boyfriend got a little nervous and told me to cool down and let this lady sing because she is older than the one before. I wasn't that mad anymore so I just went along with the song.. it's an old folks song that I could understand anyway but.. after the first song, she quickly continued another song so she could earn another 10 yuan. 

I didn't *Ding* this time because I was too full to get angry. She was paid 20 yuan and left happily. As for me, I felt really bad behaving like a lunatic to chase the first songstress out. 

I'm sorry Santa, I promise I won't do it again.. and I would like to have 100 pairs of new shoes for Christmas this year..

161211 - Jagung

This is a Jagung but it doesn't taste like a Jagung though it looks like one. I suspect it was a "fake" corn, you know this place, anything can be unreal.. but it's not. It's a dried corn usually sold during winter. They dried it and keep it for winter.

It tasted like candle and I felt like I'm a ghost chewing candle during hungry ghost festival.

111211 - Milk Bath

I wish I could soak inside the milk bath forever..

101211 - Angry Bird

How do you shut a bird up?
Press its beak and say "diam-lah burung gila marah!"

Angry Bird, known as 愤怒小鸟 fen nu xiao niao in China.. yeah it's a dumb name but anyway.. I'd be Fen Nu and probably frozen to death without the angry bird at this hour. Weather is 1c and I just came back from the night market with a water fall runny nose.

081211 - Salad

We had salad as one of the side dishes at dinner yesterday but as expected, the local Chinese doesn't appreciate it. Left: mixed with Italian sauce / right: Mayonnaise and Thousand Island. Why don't they like salad????

011211 - Free to decide

November has waved good bye and the year will end in 31 days from now. What's next? I tried to google for more themes but we have already done most of them.

To keep the blog active, let's not be bounded by themes. Take a picture everyday, 'ikut perasaan' no restrictions and write a little about the photo you wish to share with us..

Afterall, we are free to decide.

So this is my picture for today =)

Day 29: Sports

Sort of, like a sport.. LOL.. with Jamie.

Day 28: Ugly truth

The ugly truth of having 5 meals a day is - gastric problem. As advised by physician, I am to take smaller portion if I have to eat 5 times. No more chi dao bao (eat until full)!

Psst! Chinese version of minyak angin on right.

Day 27: Target

My target was to eat 小笼包 (Xiao long bao) Soup Dumplings until I drop when I visit Shanghai and yeah man, I was there over the weekend and I ate them everywhere, everyday.

This is 2 baskets of soup dumplings (8x2=16)....

Not exactly xiao long bao but the ingredients are the same and everybody orders, so did we.

They tasted differently but all equally delicious!
