CNY Shopping Loots

CNY is just 2 weeks away, but this year it will just be another ordinary day since there will be no visiting (pai nien) with relatives/friends. Before the MCO, we managed to claim some goodies using vouchers. Here are what we got for ourselves....
cookies, kuih kapit, pistachio, cashew nuts, seaweed chips, cans of luncheon meat, bakkwa, chrysanthemum tea, abalone, arrowhead chips, surimi chips and some herbal soup in packets.
Unfortunately, I have finished this whole canister of Sichuan pepper potato chips even before the CNY....
the herbal soup....yet to try...
Pricewise, the items sold in this bazaar is on the high side. It doesn't matter since we are using voucher.  We finished off the vouchers and only paid RM2.90 in cash for all the above.
Recently i saw Twilight Man posting on his newly bought tiffin...and it reminds me of the Peranakan tiffin that i have kept in the storeroom for quite some time (more than 4 years). It was a gift and is still wrapped in plastic...Perhaps i shall start using it to tapao dishes, but i feel 'sayang' coz it is too artsy to bring outside for tapao-ing. The roses on maroon background is just too pretty.
The tiffin can easily keep food portion for 3-4 persons. 
On another note, 2021 has got me a surprise - I received bonus and a promotion when i least expected it...a pat on my shoulder for the hard work done in 2020.
Hoping for better days ahead....huat ar!

Wah, super good news! Congrats! Won't be just another day because you can watch cny programs on tv. Lolx! Lucky u all managed to use up all the vouchers. your tiffin flowers are pretty. It is quite difficult to put on the handle of the tiffin when the layers are filled so I didn't even use my tiffin which is just the old school stainless steel plain.

Congratulations to you! Appreciation and reward for the hard work done. You managed to get quite a lot of CNY goodies with the vouchers and you only need to pay RM2.90. That is a beautiful tiffin carrier. Bigger tiffin good for tapao-ing, need not have to worry about the liquid or soup spilling over.

Your yummy CNY goodies are more than mine! I must get pistachio and Kueh Kapit soon. I plan to bake my own cookies this year and give shocks to relatives.

I love your tiffin carrier. It looks prettier than mine. The size is just right too as mine cannot buy just one person's portion.

Congrats on your promotion. That is a good way to kick start 2021!!

Look like you are ready for CNY. I did not much a lot. Just few stuff that we like to eat. That is all. Very minimal this year.
