Favorite CNY snacks

*Thanks for the concern everyone, appreciate them. I am feeling better already =)*

This is interesting! I mean I know most CNY snacks are oily and fattening but I don't really know the actual calories for each of them.

Now, looking at this photo, which is your favorite CNY snacks? Mine will be nian gao fritters, love letters and peanut cookies! But gosh look at the calories!! :0

Speaking of CNY snacks, I'll love to bake some on my own, shall find the time to! Homemade snacks are always healthier, right?

Til then, wishing you guys a happy weekend!


  1. I love potatoes cookies. Melt in the mouth type. Yesterday only managed to buy 4 canisters as the lady said sold out and not making anymore. Have to wait till next year, unless i found the recipe to bake my own. haha.... Happy weekends to you too!

  2. oh, this chart is interesting and very informative!! hahahaha.. thanks for sharing and i shall watch out all those CNY snacks..

    1. 炸年糕 and 肉干 undoubtedly lah, but i didn't know kuih kapit also that 厲害 leh.. just thin films like that only woh, but 4 pieces already over 200 calories!! wah, gotta run for like 20 minutes baru can burn that off lor.. and surprise to know that the fortune cookies are actually so low in calories, i would have thought they are high calories leh..

    2. but in recent years, i can control myself quite well not to touch those CNY snacks lah.. i will only snack maybe after CNY, because seeing all those leftovers i feel very sayang if just let them rot and thrown away.. so will eat a them lah.. during CNY, maybe just eat one two pieces lor..

    3. CNY still one week to go and you have not fully recovered yet woh, and Aden needs your 24x7 attention too, so you still can find time to bake some cookies for CNY?? hahaha.. :p

  3. I like that crispy honeycomb, but I eat one or two pieces only.....won't eat much!!! =]

    Have a great weekend to you too!!! =]

  4. OMG!!! You just spoilt my CNY mood. So bad!!
    I would snack non stop at everyone's house and often left with 1-2 tins as gifts from them! LOL

  5. Everything is my favourite in the photos. Now I am taking out the calculator to do scientific Maths and measure my waist to do forecasts!!!

  9. Hello Hayley,

    Good to know that you are feeling better. Thank you for the chart. Luckily I don't eat bakwa since the calories are so high per piece. My favourite snack is pineapple tarts, if they are not very sweet and sourish.

    Wishing you and your family have a good weekend too!

  10. But nowadays I also cut down on CNY snacks a lot... because very heaty so I try to eat lesser if not will fall sick easily...

  11. I love pineapple tarts. I don't usually take too much cny cookies as they are usually too sweet.

  12. Kuih kapit, pineapple tarts and yok kon are my favourite snack for cny. But funny if I go ppl house, I seldom eat those. Takut eat till can't stop

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…
