Chinese New Year 2015 Preparation

Gong Xi, Gong Xi, Gong Xi Ni! 

Another two weeks' time and all the chinese folks around the world will celebrate Chinese New Year! Since young, celebrating Chinese New Year is the largest annual festival for me. Ever since I own my own home, I've told myself to keep the tradition alive! 

Things I do to welcome a blissful CNY:

1) Scrub, Wipe, Clean, Mop the House
I'm a lazy fatty, i only cleans my house on a weekly basis. Also, having 2 furbuns at home doesn't make things easier, especially during their shedding season. So before CNY comes, I will clean my fan, exhaust fan, scrub my kitchen floors, windows, iron grills and finally wash toilet! 

2) Bake Cookies
I tried. But failed terribly! 

I tried making cookies for 12 servings. It supposed to turn up to be Nutella Cookies. Either i'm retarded in following the steps, or there's problem with the recipe, my cookies turned up cute but rock-hard... My real teeth almost crack while biting it! So i mix in milk and oil and baked the remaining mixture, into muffins lol. My muffin taste good though! 

3) Change Sofa Covers, Bedsheets, and Curtains
It's not a must, but since I havent been changing them for some time, so I'll just change it now. Kekeke! 

4) Decorate The House
Angpao packet as the main tool, there's loads of DIY angpao home decoration for kids that can be done. Since I'm lacking Angpaos this year, I've only managed to make an Angpao Fan to blow in good fortune into my house! 

Then the rest of the decorations, relies on 
Xixi, Haha and YangYang which was brought home by my sister. I have no idea which colour is which.. so yeah~

If i have the time and more Angpao Packets, i'd love to make more DIY decorations! 

Haha I would like to showcase my dad's DIY Angpao Lantern. Only he would have the patience to create such extravagant decoration like this. 

5) Filling in Angpaos With Money
I haven't prepare the money for Angpao, but will have to! Giving Angpao to younger generations, and unmarried individuals are a custom. It's a form of blessing, in hopes that they can grow up healthily, and wishing the things they do, will go on smoothly.

Thanks to Nando's Malaysia for the red packet and the vouchers! Let's see which lucky 5 relatives will have this voucher from me! 

How is your CNY preparation? 

Oh ya, Valentine's Day is coming too! Any romantic plans? Mind to share?

Days That Passed, and Those Coming By

Can't believe actually how fast time evaporates away! A new year has come and i havent been blogging in a loooooong time. 

This year will be the Goat year? Seriously the Chinese have all sorts of labelling. Sometimes they call it Sheep or Ram year. I just don't geddit sometimes! I don't really anticipate CNY already. Perhaps, the truth hits me. As much as I hate going go Melaka to wash the dirty toilets, mop the dusty floors and sleep on cockroaches infested beds... I miss sitting at the livingroom, on the dirty sofa, with my Ah Kong.

This weekend, marks AhKong's 1 year deathsary...I haven't step my foot in that house for 1 year now. I wonder, if there's any changes to it. 

It's really nostalgic and saddening, to know what time can do to us. We were born, we grow, we live, and then we aged. Then you all know what's next. This is why, i vowed to be happy, to be kind and grateful to whatever i have achieved everyday. 

Talk to you later. Gotta go work now!

Astro 10 New Channels Free Preview Until 28 February 2015

Good evening everybody! I have not turned on my computer for a long time, explaining the lack of blog activity. Hehe...

A couple of weeks back, I was invited for Astro's launching of 10 new channels at Soju, Sunway Pyramid. It was an extravagant event. Since thereafter, I have been hogging on my television and enjoyed tremendously my night with all the channels available. Let me share more with you here.

Astro's 10 new channels, which was made available on 16th November onwards comprise of 8 high definition (HD) and 2 standard definition (SD) channels. These channels are: - 

Astro New HD channels:-
Fox Family Movies HD (CH 434)
Fox Action Movies HD (CH 430)
HITS HD (CH 720)
FYI HD (CH 736)
Astro AEC HD (CH 306)
Astro Shuang Xing HD (CH 307)
DIVA HD (CH 723)
FOX HD (CH 724)

Astro New SD channels:-
ZooMoo (CH 619)
Celestial Classic Movies (CH 321)

Don't you think it's great with all these HD channels catching up with us? Our home television has evolved so much, that standard definition is not captivating enough. I've always preferred watching HD channels. The image are clearer, crispier and leaves a more comfortable visual experience.

From only 4HD channels a few years back, Astro has expanded to 48 HD channels. Beginning from 1st December 2014 onwards, there will be an RM5 increment on the HD service. 

Atop of that, Astro never neglects it's existing users. From now until 28th February 2015, all the new HD channels and ZooMoo will be free for view! This explains my lack-of-internet-activity after working hours. I'd prefer to stay home, watch my favourite Astro-On-Demand dramas back to back (in HD too)! This way, I saved a lot of unnecessary expenses from shopping or loitering around after work. LOL!

Drum rolls...

Astro sure knows how to kick start an event with a bang! COO Henry Tan officiate the launch of the event being captured by the Star Wars Troopers! I was expecting Darth Vader to turn up and kidnap us all but no, it didn't happen. haha...

Actually the whole venue is fun filled with life sized posters of the latest Fox Movie/Drama. This small place is packed with excitement!

In every tables, lies the cute dolls/figurine that melts everyones heart. We have....

Captain America


Iron Man

They all make a big Astro family...
*creative right*

Now I get ideas for my home DIY project. Cute figurines, glow in dark stick and coloured sands.

While waiting for dinner, I went chit chatting with Kak Red from She's been so kind and humble to me with her funny and straightforward advises on "How To Get Pregnant". Everytime I mentioned about her to my husband, he definitely can remember her tips. Wait till I succeed in having a baby, and then I will spread her words of wisdom around *winks* 

Kak Red and I

The event ends with a superb acrobatic performance. It's really brave for these two performers to swing and hang from the ceiling. I would have peed in my pants if I were them. LOL!

In all and all, the new #AstroHDUniverse era has begun...
