In the morning, i went with my sister to Fassler to buy 2 trays of sashimi salmon and went to Cold Storage at Northpoint to buy some meat and other random steamboat stuff… anyway we took bus and walked into the industrial place to look for Fassler and then walk from there home… we took about 1hr 30mins….

It is the Chinese New Year Eve today,… so that means that after my work, i can finally do some of my stuff like vacuum pack my army clothes so that they will not smell or take up too much space in my bag or closet.. lol…

I took a look at my handphone while packing up the stuff and saw that i can collect my pay today…. i went to my work place at about 3.40pm and reached at about 4.35pm, collected my pay and was given additional items for Chinese New Year…

Yay... free gifts...

Yay... free gifts...

Since i worked at a hamper company, they didn’t really have to go out additionally to purchase these for people… oh, and i got $1000 for my pay… 😛 they rounded it up for me… from $800+… haha… at least i was a good worker… Grandmother was here already when i returned home…

Preparing the yu sheng was still quite easy… we prepared it at about 11.30pm and started out tossing…. i really love to eat yu sheng… tasty and full of vege and fish… the only thing is that it is high in sugar content as well because of the plum sauce… had 5 of it last year…
