what is happening to me

What am I to have for dinner? Thought maybe I would just have something from this hawker place. When I got down from the car and as I look at the shop there I think I am not so hungry already afterall.. What is happening to sapphire blu this evening.. Normally by this time she is already full and her stomach is already waiting to get digested.

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.

where am I heading to?

Which direction am I heading to? Where am I going to shop for more of my last minute shopping list for Chinese New Year ? So I just follow where my heart desires to go.. in the end I ended up in Kenyalang Park and there were so many cars but I was blessed to get a parking lot there.

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
