[Volume 8 Issue 2, #1663]
話咁快已經二月喇, 距離農曆新年尚有10日, 相信好多讀者都開始為新年而忙碌啦.. 我就唔會囉, 因為我一嬲都唔駛點煩惱啲新年濕碎嘢嘅, 不過新衫我的確仲未買.. 呢一方面我絕對係last-minute態度㗎, 我諗下個星期我先會行動嘅應該.. 咁我又忙緊咩呢?? 忙緊呢兩個星期嘅post囉, 儘量schedule啲新post, 咁新年期間就唔駛煩啦, 哈哈!! 講返上面呢張相(對唔住, 扯太遠喇!!), 上個星期買咗呢隻好趣緻嘅招財貓飾物, 好有新年feel但係又唔係太俗.. 本來諗住買多個送俾讀者嘅, 不過後尾諗到每次我啲有獎游戲都冇乜人參加, 都係無謂嘥錢嘥心機好喇, 哈哈!!
so fast it's february already!! guess many people are getting busy for CNY already, since it's just 10 days away.. not for me really as i don't quite need to worry about the CNY chores, haha.. haven't even get myself any new clothes for CNY, guess i am quite last minute kind of person when it comes to this, perhaps next week would be time for me to take action.. so what am i busy with?? scheduling new posts for the next two weeks, so i have no worries during CNY, haha!! anyway, back to the story of the photo (oh, i digressed too much!!), bought this very cute prosperity cat deco last week, very CNY feel yet not very cheena.. initially thought of giving away to readers, but second thought, every giveaway contest i had didn't attract many people to participate, so rather not waste my money and effort, haha!!

    5. Good morning, Annay, meow, Yannie, SP, Lina, Hayley, wenn, STP and SK~

      10 days to CNY, I feel that I have not completed my baking and spring clean yet * panic mode*

      Lucky cat to usher the year of water snake? I thought this lucky cat is good for business, no? Coincidentally I bought some CNY deco from Mr.DIY yesterday. Went to look for CNY cards as per requested by my girl, but ended up buying things for own self, haha!

    3. Jin Jin already brought out those old lighting decor to hang at our house. He every year also did the same thing, and buy a few new things to add on.

    Replies
    1. usually I don't put flowers in the house for CNY coz the old folks says put flowers later the husband /wife will have "Tao hua"

      Delete
    2. That's why our anay has a lot of "tao hua', fat hua, sui hua, mei hua la.....he loves "tao hua".

      Delete
    3. Somebody called Fat Hua? Kekekeke~ I don't put flowers at home, I'm so lazy to clean up and store them later. But I recalled my mom loved to put "mei hua" with small decorative items in a pot, way back in our old house. Ahh, those memories... Do you think it's too late for me to get a pot of "mei hua" now?

      Delete
    4. It is okay and good to put flowers during CNY if really can attract people! I need to do sales lah.


      After CNY I keep the flowers for next year.

      Delete
    5. Don't know apa ini "hua" you all are talking about.

      I only kenal "Ah Hua" :)

      Delete
    6. My mom dont like Mei Hua...coz cantonese say is Mui Fah...Mui sound like rotten in cantonese..so it's like saying having a rotten year.

  4. How come you fancy the cats decor and not snakes or Choi San Yeah? How does the prosperity cat relate to Chinese culture? I thought it is so Jspanese style.

  6. Good morning, all! That's a cute one! I usually won't buy much deco but my husband is crazy over such deco. He bought so many for the shop. But I got 3 pieces of a certain cute deco from him. Why? Cos he needs more of the same kind but it's out of stock! :)

    1. This cat indeed looks very Japanese style. It is cute though. All animals look cute when fan...hehehe!

      Delete
    2. Haha, I think because SK wants to attract more 财 (fortune) that's why he bought this cat, furthermore it's really cute, right?

      Delete

  11. Wanakum! Year of the Cat is celebrated in Vietnam, they don't have zodiac Rabbit. In the olden Northern Thailand zodiac animal Pig was substituted by the Elephant. So if you still have friends in Vietnam after your last biz trip you can send some Cats to them in the year of the Rabbit.

    1. Bananaz,
      That is interesting info.

      Elephant for Northern Thailand and Cat for Vietnam for a certain zodiac.

  12. If not for this cat, cats are not a popular animal in a Chinese home. Dogs are auspicious animals but cats never.

    Best part of CNY is the clothes-shopping. My fav activity. Happy shopping next week.

    1. Never did I know that Happy Surfer love clothes shopping as much as Yannie.

      I will take half day off today, going to school to support my two girls in their CNY songs competition.

      So, I may steal some hours out for clothes shopping again in one local boutique. I just can't enough of buying clothes. Help! Help!
