What's the best thing about CNY? I would say the money concealed in the ang pows that need no effort to earn except some Gong Xi Fa Cai wishes and of course the biggest criteria is being single! The other would be the red capped bottle goodies and mandarin oranges! So can you imagine what a bummer that I couldn't eat any of those during this CNY? I only managed to drink half a can of Anglia Shandy! On normal CNY occasions, I would have at least 3 cans a day!
So can you imagine everyday I was staring into these bottles of goodies and not able to eat them because apparently I have a throat infection and I can't take fried food! The feeling was bad. I have been coughing non-stop and fever lasted for 3 days. But I was thankful that I have been able to resist the cookies because if not, I would have gained at least a few kilos during CNY.
I have updated the list of the must-go-places to collect Ang Pow and of course my parents are still ranked 1st place! This year my grandma has improved her ranking from 6th place to become 4th place in my list. Congratulations to PoPo...
Ang Pow Collection Ranking
- My Parents - RM1000
- My Boyfriend's Parents - RM50
- My Music Teacher in Ipoh - RM30
- My Grandma, Ms. Koh - Inti Students' Affairs Director & My Music Teacher - RM20
- My Relatives - RM10
Total collection as of yesterday, 15th February stands at RM 1500. This is the exact amount I needed to fill into my bank account as paid the same amount to the person whom I've crashed my car into. My car escaped unhurt but her Honda Civic was dented and the car boot lock was spoilt. Therefore, I didn't really make a gain this year. However, I've just got a bonus from the company and of course increment, and I have given the bonus to my parents. If small fortune don't leak out, big fortune won't roll in!
I am still sick today and my throat is killing me. I took some mandarin oranges and pomelo yesterday. Those must be the culprits! Someone please cure me...please....
