CNY walk along Chinatown


Few day ago I pass by Chinatown and just nice I bought my camera out along with me, I was alone and have nothing to do so I think why not take a walk along the street stall to feel the Chinese New Year atmosphere. If you know I can't celebrate festive season including my birthday for 3 years due to my grandmother passed away. But everything will resume in May 2013, I can start celebrating my birthday this year and Chinese New Year on 2014. But I don't really like it when my birthday pass because when I am 1 year older means my parent is also 1 year older, they will get sick and must stop working as they aged.

Didn't know there are flavoured peanut too, heard it is for a limited time only.

Walking down the street stall is quiet fun, there are samples of Chinese new year goodies for you to try. I saw a lot stall selling food from Taiwan. There are also friendly vendors that will invite you to try their food. I think you all should visit there before they close down which is before Chinese New Year.

While taking pictures I walked pass a stall selling fruits. I saw this weird shaped pear and started feeling curious, I want to buy it home to try the taste so I ask them how does it taste like. I asked "Is this fruit sweet or sour?" the aunty look at me with a question mark face telling me "This is not for eating" so ask asked "What is it for?" and she answered "This is a "húlú (葫芦)" it is meant for decorations" 

This photo was taken 2 days after my solo visit, it was my first time trying out long exposure photography. Will do better next time!

I'm here wishing you a Happy Chinese New Year!
I hope both studies and work goes well for everyone.

Scoot Cabin Crew Interview (UPDATED)

This post has been sitting in my draft for awhile and now it's finally time to publish it. Being a cabin crew aka air stewardess is a dream job for most of the girls and it may also attract eyes of envy, furthermore cabin crew get to enjoy in different country each time after work(that's other people mindset), however most people need to understand that the job is not as luxurious as it seems and cabin crew will also be sacrificing their family time for work. There was this day when I have finally graduated from ITE and found out that Scoot is recruiting cause I am constantly checking out their website hehe so I decided to send in my application. One reason why I choose Scoot is because it is a new airline and the people there all share a common characteristic which is "Scootitude" that makes them so fun-loving. Image credit: Hpility
