Phew. That's almost all I can really sum up my entire week of CNY. Or at least for the last five days.
Let's see what I did. Eat, eat, and ate some more. It was continuous feasting and munching and noshing all the way from breakfast till dinner. Thank goodness there wasn't any late night suppering. Or else I'd be looking like a bloated whale now. I think I must've gained at least three kilograms in just these few days. That must be a record.
Aside from the non-stop eating, the family ++ just lounged around and watched CNY specials on TV. We also deviated from the usual plan this CNY by staying two nights at the Palace of the Golden Horses; which were the first two days of CNY. It was quite fun actually staying in the suites and munching on the fruit platter which was readily served for us when we arrived. The best part about staying at the suites was that we got this special entrance of sorts to break our fast in the morning at the fourth floor. What's so unique about this fourth floor is that you need a key card to access this level. They call it the "Dignitaries Lounge". Or something like that.
I felt so posh and all VIP-like even though we weren't. But it's not bad to feel that way once in a while. It was quite private as there were only about ten or fifteen tables with each table seating four diners. And the food was not too bad actually. I wouldn't mind doing that whole VIP thing again any time soon.
8TV is showing Queer Eye reruns. They suck. Jai isn't even there.
Anyways, I think I managed to keep to my "resolution" of not snacking too much and over-gorging myself on cookies and goodies. But I developed a liking to mandarins which can't be so good as I think it's slightly addictive.
Tonight's dinner's desert was the healthiest of all dinners I've ever had. We were served this jelly thing with waterchesnut embedded in it and also hot soya bean with some sort of nuts and jelly mixed in it. It tasted good and quite healthy as well.
I have a new Japanese restaurant to frequent now. I think the ZEN restaurant at Sunway Pyramid is quite old but I only visited it just the day before today. It was a good change from the usual Chinese fare and I have to say that the food was really quite good. The sashimi was really good and fresh and so was the rest of the foodies. I love Japanese fare all over again.
The cousins seem to have changed slightly over just this one year. I don't know. It just felt different. Maybe it's me. So, yeah. I think it might be age as well. I feel old.
Sharon actually came earlier to pass me my birthday present. That was so nice and thoughtful. I'd go "aww" right now except that there's no one here to hear me say it. People kept on messaging me throughout the day wishing me and all. I feel loved. Hee. I think I'm being too smug about all this now. Got to remind myself that I'm getting old now so that I don't get too proud and stuff.
I think I've ranted a while already with no connection between the paragraphs at all. Tomorrow's going to be quite relaxing except for the fact that I've got to start exercising again and get back on my routine. I'm starting to feel the flab settle in already. Sigh. The house is so quiet and orderly now. I always feel awkward when suddenly the house is so empty and that the organised chaos has all desipated. It takes a while to get used to it again. Maybe about ten minutes actually. Heh.
Well, I think I've out-ranted for the day now. It's been the longest gap between posts. Woohoo.
