Since I did not have the appetite to eat anything I just went back home. Maybe I should just have a cup of tea and biscuits for dinner tonight.
There are not as much variety as last year or maybe am I just too early.. the last time I went there during Chinese New Year season was at night. Finally I didn't manage to buy anything at all there where I always buy my favourite artistes latest cds. Last month I went there to buy two sets of artiste group Fei Lun Hai latest albums and today I have nothing to buy from there..
Was feeling a bit hungry so I thought maybe I could buy some cakes to eat but when I look at the cakes I was not hungry anymore. Could it be I ate too much mandarin oranges before I went out and though I was hungry I did not feel like eating anything. Stomach filling with too much air?
Though I did not buy anything from there I managed taking some pictures of the environment in the evening at Kenyalang Park and here they are, I have already downloaded for your view. My apologies for the blur pictures taken due to hungry but not too hungry I guess. lol
Bought this packet of mushroom from Boulevard Hypermarket the other day so I thought I will just share a recipe of Chicken Drumsticks Braised Mushroom with you for reunion dinner tomorrow. Happy trying this this but I am sure most of you already know well how to cook this dish.
