Its always the eldest sister's house we go to for our monthly family gathering because my BIL never fails to whip up restaurant worthy dishes to fill our tummies. No, he is not a chef. It's just his interest.So my point is, it has been years (i think?) since i last stepped into 娘家! Dropped by today because mum wants me to clear my wardrobe that's been untouched since forever.

And ended up making alot of wrong choices.
