Mari Makan (Come Eat)!

So, Chinese New Year is around the corner hor? For me this year, I couldn't celebrate it because of this. But then, being the generous me, I still want to organise an Open Blog for all my friends here. :D


First, let me give all of you this small inedible pumpkins. Actually, I am not sure about the significance of these pumpkins. Can anyone tell me?

Pistachio nuts.

Now, mari makan some of the snacks I prepared. Help yourself hor. Make this your home. Don't paiseh paiseh (shy shy) :)

Jelly candy.

Children, come come! Kor kor give you jelly candy.

Cashew nuts.

These cashew nuts, not cooked yet lah. Sorry sorry. My mama too busy to make mah.

Red cuttlefish.

Anyone like this? Although it's nice, don't overeat this. If not, you'll end up spending hours on the throne like Aunty Judy. :P

White Kuachi.

Aiyo, got this kuachi, everyone can chit chat non-stop while eating this. ;)

Heart-shaped chocolates.

Not only children love this heart-shaped chocolates, couples sure love this. Couples out there! Don't forget 14th of February ah! ;)

Dried persimmons.

Dried persimmons, you all have to spare some. Don't eat everything cause my gong gong love this.

Gold coins!

Full or not with all those snacks? Not enough, there are still somemore which I've no idea where my mama kept them. :P

Here, I wanna wish everyone a Happy and Prosperous Chinese New Year! Gong Xi Fa Chai!

Oh yeah, I know some of you come here for 4-D, eh? What numbers leh?
Still no numbers?
Oklah oklah... patient a bit...
Here comes the 4-D...

Note: I don't encourage gambling. Use these numbers at your own risk. :P

Hey those food looks familiar. You didn't snap them at Imperial Boulevard, did you?

ilene said...

Hey KOK, thanks for all the goodies! You & I sama sama - no CNY celebration. *sob* For me, can save giving ang pow but for you, you can continue to receive! Ha! Ha! Because of this that's why I didn't respond to you and all the other 'aunties' in giving you an ang pow. But when you're down here in KL, do let me know. Can bring you go makan makan with WMW. You know this WMW very good in cari makan wan and I still owe her 1 kopi kau kau!

"GONG XI FA CAI" to Kok and family.

wonda said...

Eh, the snacks for Chinese New Year is a bit different from my days in Malaysia. We got kuaci, candy, and also those sweet sour (kiam sooi tee) snacks. Me also no celebrate new year. Father-in-law passed away last summer. Besides, it's not a holiday here and only the celebration with firecrackers, lion and dragon dances and parade is in Chinatown.

Dizzy Dee said...

Happy Chinese New Year!! Hope you had FABULOUS celebrations, and enjoyed the time while FEASTING ;)

Just still find it funny that my surname will be KOK in 25 days' time, and its your name - for me its typically South African, or rather, originally Dutch, but here you are with the exact same name :P

Lynnwei said...

Thanks a lot ah!:)

eastcoastlife: Familiar meh? You also dreamt that number ah? haha! I think this time sure "TIOK" liao lah!:P

Aiyo, drink more water then! Don't eat and no drink. hehe.

Eh, I can accept angpao lah. Who said I cannot receive? kekeke!

Happy Lunar New Year to you too!:)

dizzydee: Thanks a lot!

Congratulations! Next time, should I address you Mrs. Kok instead? hehe. Are there many South African with Kok as surname? Now you got me curious. hehe.

lynnwei: Wah! At least you got new clothes! I didn't have even a pair. haha!

Haha! Let's see if I'm at Miri next year or not. hehe.
