CNY 2018


No photos taken on that day even reunion dinner on 除夕.. too bad! we start our day with usual pian nian to the parents then sibling who just stay next door. Soon after that the house was full with batches of relative from morning until night. MIL and her helper cooked the whole day for all the guest and us non-stop, even her helper told her if everyday cook and wash like that she will die! lol! Then at night we went to husband’s cousins place to pai nian, basically every year same scheduled because the elders include my in laws used to travel every new year after cny day 2 so they tradition is to get all the visiting done by day 1.


my favorite part because 回娘家! every year my mum will call me in the early morning asked us what time are we coming, she have been waiting since morning! so we get our dressed wait till the princess up and 娘家 we go!


decked in red, this year half of Chloe’s cny clothes was gifted by her popo and yiyi! so blessed this girl

Chloe: Zarakids from popo | Mummy: The Closet Lover & Bershka


everyone changed into something color coordinate this year is red and blue. so so hard to get Chloe to smile for photos that day.


This year we feeling a little extra! so we (sisters) set a theme for the reunion dinner. My mum usually invite my ah yi and her family to come over for dinner so she come out with the menu and start cooking up a storm with help from my brother while me designed the menu and set up then sisters do the plating.


Not all the dishes but the mains one..everyone is too hungry and can’t wait to dig in..then again no photos of us with the food. #failedmax


actually cny in KL is rather quiet especially when our family is not big. so by cny day 2 we’re done with cny visiting…like the pass years, day 3 reserve for friends!


this bunch of pretty ladies that i met thru social media platform years ago! glad that we still meet every time we’re back to KL and chat online occasionally!


the group is getting bigger! one year one baby, let’s see who’s turn this year..


twining in navy the only set of twining we had this cny

Chloe: gift by yiyi from Korea | Mummy: Hollyhoque (kinda overdo my fringe)



Pavilion with families because everyone say the cny deco is nice there.. do some quick shopping and managed to get Chloe a pair of sneaker for school.


Steamboat dinner! my poor father in law was actually feeling sick since morning but he is a man of few word in the he just keep quiet followed us shop whole day till dinner, even go to his shop at night until can’t take it anymore by the time my mil found out he already running a high fever.. Thank God he recovered after medication and a day rest. Ming got his father personality always quiet and keep thing to himself especially he’s with his family, i always encouraged him to speak up and open himself out but i know it’s not easy.

We spend quality times with family and some relatives that we see each other once a year, Chloe get to experienced firecracker for the first time! Overall it’s a good trip but we are so exhausted because Chloe just couldn’t sleep and eat well throughout the trip! She keep waking up at night crying murder sometimes 4-5 times a night, and she’s unwell so her appetite was so so bad every meal time was a war to me! We barely sleep well even come to a point that me and Ming wish to end the trip and go home earlier.


Didn’t get to shop much this round, these are all we get

  1. Books for Chloe from MPH with member discount not all in the photos but in total we got around 12-13 books for RM200 so one around RM17=SGD6? cheap? (i do think books are cheaper in Malaysia although we don’t really compare price to price)
  2. Uniqlo heatech for coming trip because cheaper after convert in RM especially some designs are discounted, not sure if we really need them but since it’s cheaper, we can wear less layers maybe?
  3. Nike sneaker for Chloe, finally she outgrown her old pair so we went JD to get her another not much choice and no discount i think just slightly cheaper in SG.
  4. On the right my biggest reward! my sis teach me how to weave that help me save money attending workshop here..#cheapskateiam since she’s quite good at weaving so she willingly passed me some basics, my mum can’t stop weaving after seeing us do! It’s quite addictive i must say, i just can’t stop!

  1. Hi Kim, sry for being random here. I am looking to purchase the ifam play yard and it appears that I only managed to find your great review from your Dayre days in 2016. I’m truly having a hard time matching the play mat & play yard dimensions. May I just seek your advise if you got the 10 panel shell ifam and it managed to fit super nicely with your parklon mat? From your pictures i’m assuming its a L size (210×140) parklon? Appreciate if you could help a troubled mum out, thanks!

  2. Hi Ling! aw never know my review do a little helping..For 10 panel play yeard it managed to fit M size parkon mat! for L size play mat you probably need 1 or 2 more which is total of 12 panel if i’m not mistaken. Because according to pupsik studio 10pcs (Rectangular layout) – 205.5 x 133

    Hope it helps!
