Sold Off

Our Lady of Perpertual Succour

Out of the blue, the sale for mum's property in Bercham, Ipoh suddenly went through after some ding-dong with the Perak Land Office. The legal assistant gave me a call and spoke in machine gun Hokkien to get me to collect the cheque before CNY. Might as well do it. Applied for leave on the 12th of February and drove up to Teluk Intan after breakfast. The first time I drove my Almera out of town. Arrived at the legal firm before lunch time. Offset the legal fees with the proceeds from the sale. Signed a few documents and drove off with the cheques. One long-drawn headache finally at an end.

Ready for CNY

Sash

Offering

Immediately visited St. Anthony's Church after that and made a thanksgiving mass offering. Went to lunch after that at Glutton Square. Not many choices at all. At least the CKT was good. Not oily and had wok qi. Stopped by at Teck Kee Enterprise after that for some shopping. It was more happening that usual due to CNY. The front of their shop was chock-full of CNY biscuits, artificial flowers and CNY decorations. Of course also visited my uncle and raided his supply of yummy miku!

This & That

On the way out, we also stopped by at one of the many nurseries by the side of the road. Mum took a long while deciding which plants and flowers to buy. While she was making the complex decision, I roamed the place 'admiring' how artificial potted plants had now become. Over-zealous workers armed with glue guns embellish the plants with plastic trinkets and artificial flowers to make them more festive. BotMod-- Botanical body modification.

Rushed home after that to enjoy the yummy Teluk Intan CCF!

@Zerachiel:
Yes, a beautiful statue. Churches normally use the reproduction of the 15th century Byzantine icon

@L2:
Yup. Normal translation for Wai Sek Kai.
