Families, Steamboat and the Moon.

HAPPY MOONCAKE FESTIVAL EVERYONE~ !!!

Due to our respective work commitments, our families had to celebrate yesterday instead of tonite.
So while its still not too late, I'll try to quickly post this before I go off for work!

I love spending family time :)
Its the bond that we should never forget, regardless of how busy we are with our daily work and lives.
Even a simple home-cooked meal means the world to me.
:)

Its actually the first time having dinner with both families in the new place (haha, coz up to recently we were still using the old dining table u noe..) so I was super hyped-up!

Jungle Boy n his mum went to the market before the sun came up, and then I went to NTUC and then Sheng Siong with her in the afternoon to get more stuff!

Fun max!
I actually like market-ing.
:p

From the vivid colours of the vegetables & fruits , to the the various kinds of produce each stall has - combined with the the loud hawkering of the sellers and the way all the aunties seem to go about in the wet market is both intriguing and fascinating to me.

But most importantly, all they want is to cook a nice meal for the family and that to me - is both heartwarming and sweet.
:)

*****

Okiessss first up! (Earlier in the week)
Lunch with my 'other' family...



I had church that day so it was a more conservative purple ruffled top with skinny pants!
Love the intricate sitching on the edges of the shirt.



After lunch and someone went ipad-buying hehehe - we headed for a small caffeine fix.
So cuteeee! Can u see the heart shape? :D



And yesterday was family day.



Spending time with loved ones.
Or catching...



And wearing a playsuit!



The feast begins...



Home-made goodness tastes best with loved ones.
And this sambal kicks ass!
I eat it with everything~!



Taking pictures round the table.



Then my camera's battery died on me..
:(

So now my hands are free to take all the yummy food!
Yaysss!
Loveeeee eating steamboat.

But the best thing about eating at home - if ur camera dies on u, u can go and grab ur charger and chargeeeee battery!!!
:p

We adjourned outside to bask in the wonderful moonlight.



The orchids one of our dear church friends who gave us for the new house.
Very thoughtful and sweet.



Looking up in the sky.



Thank you everyone!
I hope u enjoy stuffing urself with all kinds of mooncakes and playing lanterns today!

Ah Huat Girl: hello hello babe! Where did u go? Hehhehe never tag me le? Hows ur pimple?
N yesss I love shopping in drugstores becoz prices are so reasonable and products dun lose to high-end stuff.
:P

Tanya: Hahaha u r rite!!! I love NARS more but MAC is pretty good too! Except I prefer the blushes from NARS and some of their sparkly stuff are much better than MAC. But MAC has the widest range of lipsticks and they do their part for charity which I really admire. :)

chouxx: Hmmmm.. Its very simple actually. U simply dip the metal ball in the cream and dot it around ur eyes (over and under) Use the metal ball over ur eye area in a gentle motion until cream dissappears. Tap using fingers lightly after.
Thats all~

Tanya: LOL! That was soooo long ago??? Yes I like it but I haven been to Korea for a long time so I didnt stock up! But if I were to go Korea again, I will most def get it becoz I really like it too! :D

morning love: Thank u babe!! I like the white top too! :p Hahhaha ya lor the kids busy playing apps so only left the dog to disturb..! He very angry with us.. keep growling.
Service? Hmmmm I have my share of bad service but I try to be reasonable. Sometimes the service stuff is paid so little u cant really expect top-notch service. So I guess as long as it is not too bad, I dun really mind.
Hottie looks??? Hahhaha wat is that?? Im such a auntie already I dun think guys will look at me.. :p

I chose HAPPY.
