The only two things that I managed to do is clean the house which is still underway and completing by tonight or tomorrow night. The other thing is trying out this new snack DIY. Guess the era of Arrowheads aka "nga ku" is taking a backseat and this new snack is hitting the town like crazy. Not only this, I saw lotus roots as well but well, I'll keep that for another year to try. Also heard fried onions, hhmm another snack DIY on my list.
This year with time not on my side, this easy peasy crabstick snack will do :)) Bought these packs of flavoured crab sticks from the hypermarket.
So into the hot controlled oil they go and.....
store up in an airtight container

We headed straight to Portugese Settlement to enjoy the sea breeze before settling ourselves for some good Portugese dinner.
It was still bright when we arrived and there's already crowd gathering along the sea banks and pier.
My two boys enjoying themselves :))
By then the eateries that were open that day started to get crowded. Some even closed early as they could not cater to the crowd. We found a spot and was told that waiting time is 1.5 hours. There goes our plan of heading to Jonker Street after dinner! We didn't order a lot since it's only 2 adults eating. The kiddos usually will nimble here and there. We had Portugese baked fish, stir fried vegetable, ginger lala and baked otak-otak.
Fiery hot and very different taste from the usual Portugese baked fish that I have in KL. Authentic Portugese?
There's also a stall that caught my eye for it's fames horse shoe crab. I didn't dare to order this to try as I'm scared of over ordering. So I'll keep this for the next round I'm here.
We left Portugese Settlement admist beautifully brightly lit homes! It justmakes me happy looking at it. If you have no where to go the next Christmas, head down to Portugese Settlement and set your sight on these dainty homes beautifully decorated!
And this was how we spend our 1st day of New Year together as a family :D
