Happi Chickadee 🐓 🐣 🐔 New Year!

Home Sweet Home is ready for the Chickadee year!!!

couldn't resist buying this CNY deco for our main door because of the popped up rice bucket with real rice... and also because it was selling at only $1... 

set up my CNY tree once more cos we will be expecting visitors this year.... 

CNY goodies at Home Sweet Home
jointly contributed by 蔡 mummy, 洪 mummy's elder sister and lydia.... thank you very much.... 


first lou hei @  洪's reunion dinner

Delivering the box of mandarin oranges which 蔡 mummy 'requested' .... a box of 30 this year just because this was the only size available when Mr Ang decided to buy it on the eve....  it was usually a box of 6 or 8.... serve Mr Ang right for being a last minute shopper... heee

蔡 mummy always amused me with her reunion dinner preps;  steamboat spread + home-cooked shark-fins + muah chee + cheng teng + orh nee 

Hubby Ang gave me an angbao.... luv luv 

thanks Dominic for lending us your car for my 娘家 trip... 


then a visit to 洪大伯's house for a mega gathering where 4 generations of Angs consisting of at least 60 大大小小 meet up once a year to exchange ang baos... heee.... 

Happiness is when we live so near to parents-in-law that i went up for supper in my sleeping attire...wahahahaha.... not forgetting to bring my mandarin oranges along too... =D 


Brownie, where are your eyes?!?!?!?!?! ... =P 

took some 放闪 photos while waiting for 洪爸爸 and 洪小弟 to be ready for Wang's visitation ....  

to more loving CNY together... omg... just realised that this was our 7th ang baos giving CNY .... 

things he does to make himself feel less guilty about binge eating this CNY.... 

the super jolly Wang's 家


a total rest & relax day.... even had time and energy to go for a 3km run + 1km walk on the treadmill in the morning... 

finishing the day with a movie date with the angs 

typical Jackie Chan's comedy kungfu movie with a Bollywood twist ....  totally worth the ticket price.... really is 从头笑到尾.... =D 


on bus 72 to Tampines, my favourite nanny's house for visitation... =D

but before that... lunch @ Monster Curry Tampines 1 
a monster plate all by himself.... level of spiciness - 5 flame!!! 

another monster plate to be shared between the 3 of us ... level of spiciness - 1 flame only 

1 flame of spice for Mr Ang too... 

sorry for not visiting you as often as i wish i did..... to be included in this year's resolution... i will visit you every school holiday else i will give u an even bigger ang bao next year!!! =P

Ailing's hatchday get-togther @ Shanghai Dolly

doubling up our January's "Happi Wife, Happi Angs" activity with a clubbing session to celebrate Ailing's hatchday... =D 

my favourite night life venue for now.... 2nd visit in 4 months.... and planning another visit by end March to enjoy the $50 voucher we received... oh no..... sounds like we are back for a moderated clubbing life....wahahahaha....  

free entrance for ladies throughout the night, guys enter free before 10pm... it wasnt too noisy with its 民歌餐厅 style of performance... we caught 2 sets at about 9.15pm and 10.15pm... each set lasted for about 30 minutes with a mix of Korean, Cantonese, English and Mandarin songs... 可以点歌的... =D

luv the quietness in between the performance for chit chats over drinks.... we had 2 round tables just by ordering a bottle of Martell that came with 4 jugs of mixer... =D 

Mr Ang's phone takes nicer pic than mine... luv the slimmer face it captured... wahahahahaha 

ladies of the night 

dance-able music came on at about 11pm with 歌台 style of performance that was quite fun to watch... =D

Ailing's brother came to join us with his date and ordered a bottle of champagne...

such interesting presentation.... the gals were all intrigued by the lighted ice-cube... =D

now i understand what these two singers meant by "orange juice is good, it's even better with champagne" (1.22min) .... it's really quite yummy.... heeee

Happi 6th Wedding Anniversary

I have always always always wanted to wear my wedding gown to celebrate all wedding anniversaries since the day i was married to Mr Ang.... to the extend that i had the gown altered to knee length months before our 1st wedding anniversary back in 2012.... but when the day came, i just couldnt find the courage to wear it out... the struggle repeated itself on our 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th wedding anniversary celebrations too... 

then i chanced upon a Huffingpuff post of a bride who wears her wedding dress every year... she has wore her full length wedding gown to play golf and eat pancakes on her 1st anniversary, enjoyed a sunset dinner cruise on her 2nd anniversary so on and so forth... 

and hence i was extremely DETERMINED to wear mine too for this upcoming 6th wedding anniversary.... i totally forgot that i wasnt as slim as i was 6 years back ah... but dun care, i shoved and i squashed my way in, breathed in and got Mr Ang to zip me up.... wahahahahahaha..... 

cropped away my flabby arm

trying to hide behind Mr Ang to make myself look thinner but ended up looking naked instead... =P 

the 手插腰 method is good for camou-ing flabby arms... heee

took a bus and a change of 4 trains before we reached Changi City Point.... 

The HandBurger signage caught Mr Ang's attention, the food from the Grill Knife menu caught both our attention and we topped the meals up with sides from the Soup Spoon.... wahahahaha... quite a successful union i would say.... =D 

pumpkin soup and ice-lemon tea for the Mr

mushroom soup with hibiscus-tea for the Mrs 

6th year wedding anniversary is also known as the IRON (US) and SUGAR (UK) anniversary   ...  i decided we shall go US style since Mr Ang is no fan of dessert buffet... since we are no fan of beef, both of us opted for a chicken (high in Iron) dish.... 

Chicken breast in home sauce, bratwurst sausage and basil pesto penne for the Mr 

Chicken thigh with black pepper sauce, Portobello mushroom and sunny-side-up for the Mrs 

the reason why we travelled all the way to Changi City Point was so that Mr Ang could shop for his work attire for his new job that's starting tomorrow.... Welcome to the fraternity hubby... =*

here's me checking myself out while Mr Ang was busy with his shopping.... couldn't really tell that i was wearing my wedding gown underneath the jacket hor???  

Great buy after an hour plus of outlet shopping... all dry cell/dri fit material @ 50% off... =D 

~ a simple celebration for a simple couple ~

Happi Anniversary Hubby Ang... thanks for being the best hubby for me... thanks for doing all the things that i dun like and dun wanna do... thanks for being so patience with me... thanks for still being so kan cheong over me, still loving and pampering me lots after all these years... luv you very de much oh.... muacks.... 

very sadist but so very de funny....wahahahaha....
