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!

I also love the spacious bathro…

The unwelcomed birthday presents

(Note: Quite a long post, I skipped my afternoon nap to write this so please read everything ya!! xDD)

Past 2 weeks were really exhausting for me.

It all started on 20th April when Aden developed a mild fever, he was tired and sleepy, I let him skipped school for 2 days.

He seldom takes afternoon nap, when he does, it means he is not feeling well :(

The next day, it was Toby's turn😢
Poor boy, his temperature reached 39° and it was on and off~
Then I notice he started to have these cute double eyelids for a few days~ Haha not sure why~
He was feeling really unwell, very lethargic, no appetite and super duper clingy to me!

Then both brothers started to cough badly 😢😢 
So on the 25th, I brought them to the pediatrician again.  He examined both boys and suspected it could be pneumonia and even dengue (because their fever were on and off). Suggested to get admitted right away.
I wasn't sure if that's necessary because I knew once admitted, have to stay for at least 5 days (h…
