CNY 2015

Postby A better tomorrow » Sun Feb 08, 2015 3:55 pm

Hello :smile: !
It's going to be cny soon ! Let's use this thread to ask questions on where to buy clothes / decorating /cleaning tips
Saw many threads on buying clothes for children for cny . Maybe it's better to consolidate all here .
How's the spring cleaning doing everyone ?
I am still not even half finished :oops:

A better tomorrow

Most of the cleaning done. But home still appears messy cos gift giving not yet completed. More things need to be junked before end of the week. Planning to buy the CNY flowers and mandarin oranges next weekend. We do not have guests so no real need to decorate.

Clothes bought and washed already.

It is getting simpler by the year.

Anyone has the chart on good days to start work?

I'm very particular abt this. Auspicious dates (Mind your own animal sign):

2月23日星期一(正月初五)巳时(上午9:00am) - 肖鼠不宜(吉方东北)
2月26日星期四(正月初八)巳时(上午9:00am)– 肖兔不宜(吉方东南)

【注】两个日子比较,如果命格不忌,生肖不忌,苏民峰老师就喜欢2月23日。
如果你刚刚去了旅行,又或者回老家探父母,那么还可以选择:

3月4日星期三(正月十四)午时 (上午11:00am) - 肖鸡不宜(吉方正南)

还有就是现在很多人都用手机看公司电邮,所以「开工」的意义就是只要你用手机开始做「工作」(譬如回覆电邮之类),已经是把这个起始点踢动了。故此特别给出吉日之吉方,可以在家中/或办公室此方位开始工作,祈求一年工作顺遂,财运亨通!

至于是公司,店铺开市,那就最好按老板的生肖为主,而很多时候都会配合一些拜神活动,这方面可以请教卖香烛的店铺需要什么东西了。

Can't get myself to clean door frames...but what the heck, no visitors.

Changed quilt cover :rahrah:
Washed new bed sheets. :rahrah:

Bought sufficient meat to last 1 week after CNY weekend. :rahrah:
Too early to buy vegetables.

New clothes washed...it's only for 1 day.

I go out every now and then...so when I see any worth buys, I will just buy first...wait till CNY to get would be too rushed and 'forced to buy' situation.

My freezer is now full. Past experience taught me not to eat out during CNY period as I had food poisoning due to poor food handling. This weekend, I will get more eggs, bee hoon and instant noodles. Will ask my mum to help me cook some lard...干捞面 with some pig lard is heavenly.
