Food for CNY

Yesterday morning, I was anxious to get some foodstuff for CNY. So I went to the wet shop that sells all kinds of vegetables and fishes too.

I bought some vegetables and I had used up some money. I bought some fishes too. I had to ask the boss regarding the price for my fishes. I was afraid that they would cost a lot and I didn't bring much money. The boss said, "Don't worry. If you don't have enough, I can easily take some stuff from your shop." Haha, he's so cute..

I paid him and next I bought chicken and prawns too. The lady seller told me that the total was about RM80. Gosh, I only had less that that. So I asked if I could pay later. She said, "Sure!"

I left the place and went to my shop. I saw that the boss was over there. I asked for some money and he gave but he told me not to buy any fishes and prawns. He had already bought large prawns and big fishes too. I answered that I just bought simple ones.

I went back to the shop, paid the lady and bought some more vegetables. Went over to the next shop which sells pork. Bought some and I had some money left. Enough..

Altogether I bought RM222..
What a coincidence..triple two!


The most tedious task was to peel the prawns..
I had to make sure that they were really cleaned..

 Glad that I have stocked up my fridge!
Ready for CNY feast!

Gong Xi Fa Cai!
