Happy Chap Goh Mei








FuFu Life in Frankfurt - Part Eight
Chap Goh Mei, Chinese New Year - 28th Feb 2010


FuFu Chap Goh Mei Open House, come enjoy the snacks.

Hey guys, sorry i have been MIA after my last presentation since Tuesday. Had been busy partying with friends, eating, drinking, watching Taiwanese drama, etc. Probably i had consumed too much junk food and didn't have enough rest after the final, ended up having a real bad sore throat and fever. Fortunately after two tablets of panadol actifast, i am feeling much better now. Guess what? I am making chinese herbal soup on my sweet Sunday.

Ops, i have nearly forgotten Chinese New Year. Sorry i was busy doing my assignments and also the presentations. I know it's Chap Goh Mei today. Thus i decorated my room with the greeting cards i received from my friends (all the way from Malaysia) and the snacks i got from my friends. Gonna have a little open house at my room tonight. All of my readers are invited. Come and celebrate with me before the Chinese New Year officially end in couples of hours.


Chinese New Year Greeting card from Pau Ling. Thank!


Chinese New Year Greeting card from Singchet. Thanks!


Angpao from Yong-han, my Taiwanese coursemate. Thanks!


FuFu Chinese New Year Decoration - Frankfurt, Germany.


Swiss choco, Japanese snacks, Taiwanese junk food.


And also the European Mandarin oranges.


Come to FuFu Open House for all these international offerings!


But because of those junk food, FuFu gotta seek help from Panadol.


And made fish porridge with carrot and tomato for dinner. Yummy.


But FuFu still feeling weak. Thus he decided to cook the herbal soup.


十全大補湯 literally a complete or wholesome great restorative soup!


喝一碗十全大補湯,一定能夠精氣足,像蠻虎一樣猛 Woohoo!


FuFu will be a roaring tiger after drinking the soup! Hohoho!


Here is the soup. Who wanna try it?


It contained ten different POWERFUL Chinese herbs.


And tastes like bak kut teh. FuFu is fully recharged now. Yay...

Anyway Happy Chap Goh Meh. 2010 has just started yet Chinese New year is gonna be officially ended and March, FuFu's big day is coming soon! Woohoo~

Small-Ugly said...

看到你的贺年卡让我想起今年我怎么没收到一张啊。真的是。不过贺年卡,如果现在送还来得及吗?不懂。

进来刚从家里拿来一个电子砂锅,还计划炖汤呢。首先开头炮的是玉米花生鸡柳汤。再来,就是要弄奶油意大利面了。

想到都流口水。新年期间,大马气候炎热,也是在受不了。

Fufu要多喝水哦。

fufu said...

Small-Ugly : hahahhaa it's too late to send the greeting cards now... pls get ready for 2011 ok?? lol
