The feasting doesnt seem to look like its gonna end anytime soon.
After all the partying, slacking, and ang-bao collecting, its kinda painful and worrying to learn that MONDAY is drawing closer, and closer. Bahh, MONDAYS aint cool.
Anyway, i had dim sum with my family today. Dad drove us all to Harbour City Restaurant, located on the third floor of PSA building, for lunch. Loads and loads of people both inside and outside. Thank God for reservations. Phew~
We ordered the usual har gao, siew mai and charsiew bao. Also had charsiew cheong fun, fish porridge, xiao long baos, steamed beancurd skin, seafood roll, fried prawn rolls, spring rolls, har kok, wu kok (yam), and lots more which i cant rmb. We also shared a plate of soya sauce chicken and desserts! The fried honeydew fritters with icing sugar dessert was quite interesting.
Headed to dar's place after that. Chilled and snacked on CNY goodies. -_-!
Bus'ed down to town later in the afternoon. Tot of catching either 27 dresses or Shattered but tickets were all either selling fast or sold out. Hence, headed to dar's aunt's place for a cny visitation cum dinner gathering.
I still remember last CNY, we stuffed ourselves silly with a seafood platter, caesar salad, pizza and pasta from Spagheddies till we forgot to leave some stomach space for dinner buffet at dar's aunts' place. So this year, we wisen-ed up a little and made sure we stayed clear and far away from food at least 3 hours before dinner time. One look at the spread on the table (curry veg, ngor hiang, chicken wings, fish, veggies, sotong balls, seaweed chicken, steamed chicken, pigs trotters, prawns) and we were very thankful we didnt overdo it again this year.
The morale of the story?
Over-consumption can be lethal!
Food is meant to be enjoyed and savoured. Over-consumption simply eliminates them both. So eat moderately, exercise regularly and rest adequately and you'l be fine, yes, perfectly fine.
OOH, mom taught me new cheng yu's today! Hee hee.
