Getting Ready! Welcome the Chinese New Year 2021

Our Chinese New Year of the OX will be coming soon! It is just less than 3 weeks away. I believe we might celebrate this festive season on a smaller scale this year. I do not wish to feel miserable with my wife just in case, our country has to observe a full lockdown. Last CNY 2020, we were supposed to fly off to Guangzhou on 2nd day of CNY but I cancelled our flight on the eve of my departure as the pandemic was sweeping across Guangzhou already. Luckily I got credit refunds from Air Asia. I truly appreciate that we also received refunds for our planned trips to Hua Hin, Taipei and Melbourne by MAS and Air Asia. To be safe is my ultimate happiness. We can always travel again when the world is safe again.

Last month, I went on shopping spree on Boxing Day Sales and bought CNY dresses and tee shirts for my wife and myself. Yes, I always bought dresses, clothes and even Victoria Secret's panties for my wife. Why not? This is something most people were shocked as they never heard of their husbands buying clothes or panties for their wives. Am I abnormal or something is wrong with other husbands? I want to hear from you.

Look at the clothes, decorations and all the CNY goodies I have bought ahead to celebrate this Chinese New Year of the Ox. They are all cheap items.



I bought 2 CNY  Lucky Cat door mats to welcome GOOD LUCK, Huat Aarrrrr!
Trust me it works, if you really believe in the Law Of Attractions!



Special OX Chinese New Year Red Packets for the kids. 
I prefer to buy my own cute ones online from China as those given free are less exciting.




I bought 5 pieces of CNY Cushion Covers, online from China.
It costs me only RM23.00 for 5! Cheap hor....



I bought 2 Door Banners to usher the God Of Wealth and visitors.



Lion Dance greetings to hang along the bannister.




Auspicious red CNY clothes for yours truly.
Ang Ang Boh Hai Lang.



Floral red blouses and dresses for my wife! 
They are loose fittings as she dislikes those cheongsam that gags her throat all day.
I chose and bought them all while this uncle went shopping alone.
No mistakes done as I used my fingers to measure all her dress and pants accurately.
The sales ladies often stared at me in disbelief with open mouthed.




I have got some goodies and canned abalone ready to give out to all closest relatives. My wife will cook Poon Choi to celebrate for the Reunion Dinner with relatives (subject to the MCO rules)



Have I missed out anything?

  2. You are well prepared with all the red red clothes for your wife and yourself. My maternal aunt's late husband also buys clothes and inner wears for her so you can rest assured that you are normal. 👍

    1. Good to hear that I am not alone. Some wives ticked their husbands off and those men asked me whether I tried those dresses in the fitting room? #@*%! Anyways we still have many egoistic and male chauvinists here.

    1. Yes I will continue to do what I feel is right. My wife came from a very abused upbringing and lost her years to enjoy what growing up girls had - Dolls, Dressing, Masak Masak and Shopping etc.

    1. I will wear red new clothes everyday from CNY Day 01 and play CNY Chinese songs loudly to keep my spirits soaring high! We better control the situation and not let the situation control us. This Covid pandemic makes healthy people depressed easily.

  7. Can I be part of your family? I'd like to receive the big angpows and cans of abalone too...lol! I see you've got his and hers matching T-shirts. Actually, you've got good taste in clothings (so can trust you to do the shopping for your wife). I like that bold dragon shirt for you and the sweet, colourful one on on the bottom right corner for your wife. You've got the decoration...the clothes...and the food...you're ready for your CNY party! ;) Glad to see that you're still upbeat on the festivities.

    1. You are welcome to be my family! Ang pows and abalones in abundance for you.

      I find that more friends around me are slowly sinking into depressions now. I told myself to get my mind busy and occupied instead. I also increased my watching hours on Netflix TV programs so that I will sleep well. Depression is very scary and incurable for many. I read in the news that even the new Empress of Japan took more than 5 years to recover slightly from her depressions and hid herself in Amsterdam.

      So I wish all my bloggers to stay happy, healthy and SAFE during the lockdown.
