Happy Lunar Snake Year to you all! /cue crickets/
ok la, my bad I've been like putting off blogging so much simply cos my bf is hogging my computer everyday and I just came back from BKK and it's already like the 9th day of CNY lol.
my CNY was same old as usual.
came back from BKK on the 5th and went to queue for bak kwa from Lim Chee Guan the next day.

it has always been a tradition for me since I started poly to go and queue for this bak kwa every year simply because... it makes my mother happy.
like seriously. people always ask me why I so stupid wanna go and queue for bak kwa and what not, why waste my time blah blah blah.
Ehhhhh, if my mother wants to give this brand of bak kwa to my relatives during CNY, and I as her daughter am willing to queue on her behalf, why the hell not?!
and is there a difference between Lim Chee Guan and all the other brands of bak kwa out there?
I SAY YES.
it's my own personal preference but I really think this bak kwa wins hands down all the other brands out there. really cannot compare seriously.
so yeah, I will still queue for this bak kwa every year if my schedule permits.
even despite having a still semi-injured foot, I still went ahead with it. *shrugs*

I swear I am addicted to Twelve Cupcakes. I mean seriously :(
it's very bad for my wallet, especially since there's an outlet at Changi City Point near my workplace.
I bought this box of 3 because I wanted to try the Bailey's Chocolate (1st cupcake) then decided to get some for my mother as well.
the Red Velvet cupcake is seriously sooooooooo goooooood but the price isn't D:
that's my only grouse seriously.
everyday my colleague will always update me their special flavours for the day then we both get so tempted to just try la.
booooooo to expensive cupcakes i.e. flour, sugar, butter and cream! rofl.

My nails for CNY. I... ran out of ideas seriously.
Was plain exhausted from doing everything last minute cos we just came back from BKK so after removing my Chanel nail polish which was like 10 days old already, I was like.... eeny meeny miney moe *grabs bottle*
and it was China Glaze's It's a Trap-eze.
the purple polish is OPI's OPI Ink. probably one of the fugliest designs I've done but wth man. LOL.
so.... CNY Day 1! headed to my paternal grandmother's home for lunch and gambled with the cousins and aunties/uncles.
won money HEHEHEHEEHEH xD

didn't go out at all on Day 3 so I spent the entire day at home nua-ing, sleeping, watching youtube and basically just became a nua queen at home la lol.
then made up with the bf that night lol.
went back to work on Day 4 cos company is that shit to not even shutdown when other people's companies did.
everywhere was so empty D:
the shuttle service to go to lunch wasn't even operating. boo to lousy bosses!
Day 5 was Valentine's Day and... went to work as usual haha.

Had the set lunch at the Indonesian restaurant for $8.90 including a drink
didn't like it that much so probably not gonna go on Mondays anymore to eat this.
the one with the tahu goreng is really nice. I think it's on Thursdays or Wednesdays.
then.. walked past Twelve Cupcakes.
had no intention to buy any cupcakes then my colleague said "Do You want to buy?"
then I was like "NO! No money."
colleague: But what if Lychee Martini is available today?
me: Huh where got so heng one......SHIT!
IT WAS REALLY AVAILABLE FOR THE DAY FMLLLLLLL T.T
strike 4D/TOTO also not so heng lor lol.
cos I was telling her I wanted to try this flavour for the longest time but it hasn't been on the Daily Specials yet.
or at least not when I'm at the outlet.
so..... caved in and bought that plus another flavour (Mudslide) and we decided to share them for breakfast tomorrow lol.
IMG_5692
and took pics first cos... I have a very bad track record of maintaining the cupcakes in their glorious form LOL!
alright, will try and edit the pics from BKK before posting them.
enjoy the ongoing feasting people :D
