Today is our salary day.. We get our $$$ earlier this month so that poor people like me will have extra $$$ to buy things for CNY celebration. I really spent a lot this few days :( I can see a long queue in front of the ATM machine this morning at my workplace.. The desperate ones .. ;)
I went shopping in Sunshine Farlim this evening after work and bought some cookies, more lokam (CNY oranges), drinks, top up more Bak Kua/肉干(yeah, I just realised few days ago that I can get 10% discount of Bee Cheng Hiang Bak Kua since I'm Sunshine Card members.. ).Rugi cos I didn't realise about that the last time when I bought the bak kuas from Bee Cheng Hiang (美珍香).. Bought so many things today.. Money flying away again...
These are some of the shots I took from Gurney Plaza last weekend. Gurney Plaza is packed with people on weekends... So, normally I either go there on weekdays or if I need to go on weekends, I will go early, before noon.
Plum Flowers or Plum Blossoms (梅花) is always associated with Chinese New Year. The blossoms will burst forth at the end of winter on a seemingly lifeless thin branch. It symbolises courage, hope and perseverance. Since we don't have the real natural plants over here in Malaysia, the 'fake' flower plays an important role :)
