it’s such a fine day..but the snow is not melting yet..but i really feel like going out..i’m feeling a bit disconnected with the outside world because i’m here in Leeds, but family and friends are in Malaysia and they’re having a wonderful weekend 😭 i just miss them..and i miss BSB live performance too 😣 it’s alright..they’ll go on a world tour soon..let’s hope i can catch one of the tours 😃
anyway, i would like to specially dedicate this post to two of my good friends, who have recently tied the knots and i would like to extend my apologies for i wasn’t being able to attend their receptions..
dear erin and wawa,
wow, it’s a whole new journey huh..dear friends, as your soul unite, may your love and affection for each other never fade away..let your love for each other grow with every passing day and may the marriage you build brings great joy, love and a lifetime of happiness..
congratulations erin & wawa!

i got bored with my own cookings..i mean, there were not much to cook given the limited availabilities of a lot of asian ingredients..not to mention their sparkling price tags too..but anyway, with some effort, i managed to buy some asian groceries that did not tear my pocket..
1) red spinach = £2
2) red sweet potato = 3 pcs for £0.36
3) lemon grass = 10 pcs for £1
4) lady’s fingers = 10 pcs for £0.63
the trick was to go to the market, not the supermarket..i even bought 4 boxes of strawberries for £2 when they’re £2 each in the supermarket..and oh, i’ve got a whole fish, sea bream for £2 and a royal snapper for £3.50..fresh, not frozen..the mackerels were even much cheaper..
but i couldn’t find both ginger flower and vietnamese mint for my asam pedas..i guess i have to purchase that herbal plant online..for vietnamese mint i mean..how frustrating..i can do a lot with ginger flower and vietnamese mint..i can make laksa and nasi kerabu! ohh~ i miss hometown food T_T
i was planning to share it yesterday but i just had to finish an assignment so yea, i’m sharing it now! 🙂
my friend lives in sheffield and she encounters this on her way back to leeds..it’s very entertaining, and what i like the most about this mob is, it is not made by the younger generations..i mean, have you seen the james bond flash mob..?they’re all fairly young, and the energy is kinda expected..but seeing these uncles and aunties spending some time to cheer up the people at the station, really warm my heart..
i used to be in a choir team and i know exactly the amount of commitment needed to make a successful performance..and all hail to the purple cats, they nail it! congratulations on this mob..
and i wonder too..why wouldn’t this be a culture of mine too..?i mean, my mom would stare at me as if i’ve sinned hugely if i ever suggest this to her..haha..but this is cool..when i’m old, when my kids have all gone to school, and there’s just me and jack at home, trying to think we’re still young at heart, i’d drag him to join things like this..hahah..enjoy it!
