Mom, Sister and I were in Miri during this Chinese New Year weekend. Chinese New Year falls on a weekend this year and therefore I got two days off. As Dad returned to hometown for CNY, we decided that the females in the family shall enjoy CNY in Miri this year. We went house visiting at one of my colleagues’ place and were invited for dinner as majority Chinese restaurants were close during this festive season.
We stayed at Pullman Miri Waterfront this time round as most of the hotels in town were fully booked and I am not exactly keen about staying at budget hotels. Kingwood Hotel is definitely out of the question as Mom complained about the size of their shower room. Imagine Mom with tiny body size complained about the size of the shower room, I could not imagine what would Sister might rant about.
Selfie on Chinese New Year Day 2 with my outfit. I did not snap a full OOTD shot as I am just not used to it. A half body OOTD shot would suffice as I only wanted to show the details of the lace on the dress. LOL! I love the traditional Cheongsam collar but I doubt I would be wearing it on regular days as it looked too formal to pull off as a casual dress.
I did not do my hair prior to Chinese New Year this year as my regular hairstylist was no longer working with the salon. I cannot be sure whether she moved to another salon or returned to Malaysia for good. However, I think I need to get the bushy top fixed when returning from Singapore next week.
We departed from Miri for Bandar some time after 1:30PM and it took us approximately half an hour clearing both sides of immigration. We reached Bandar around 4:30PM and headed straight for early dinner at TCVH Vegetarian House as Sister was starving already and she was craving for some Char Siu Kolo Mee. I could not think of any non-Halal restaurant which is open during this festive season but vegetarian restaurant.

Mom was rather intrigued to know how Wheatgrass with Milk tasted like so I got this for the both of us to share. In conclusion, it was too sweet for both our liking.
