Although it’s coming to an end soon but I still want to wish whoever drops by here a very Happy Chinese New Year and may God bless you doubly this year!
This year’s CNY begins with the Western Valentine’s Day and ends with the Eastern… special isn’t it? ^^ and I read in the papers that such coincidence only happens once every few hundreds years!
Didn’t get to celebrate Valentine’s a.k.a. our 3rd Anniversary this year with him coz we’re all back in our hometown… but we have replacements before and after the break.. hahaha like going for classes… will post bout the replacements after I’ve got all the photos… ngeh ngeh ngeh… ^^
I believe it has sth to do with my age… as this time around I dont look forward so much to the new year celebration as before… to me it’s more like a real break from the hectic life and getting together with family & friends… especially Niny!!! Gotta show her pictures first!
Niny knows how to grab things dy! Her bolster is even bigger than herself! She’s especially fascinated by bright colors… Try wearing a white T-shirt with colourful, stands-out patterns and see what she’ll do to your chest… hahaha…
And she gurgles more now… *will upload more videos soon* Since she’s learning how to roll and crawl… she prefers if you hold her in a sitting position… If she lies down too much she’ll start complaining… and twice we heard her saying “Bao~~~~ baaoooo~~~” (Carry)…. guess she’ll start calling ‘Papa’ first and not ‘Mamma’… Sorry Sist… you lose~~ ahaks!!
Let me highlight some chronologies of the cny this time around…
Was very ‘guai’ to follow my mom and auntie to the market EARLY in the morning on new year eve… I mean real early! 4.30 am okay! These peeps’re crazy… and that includes my mom… haha… I don know what they’re fighting for… but the place was real packed and we really had to jostle through the crowd.
In the afternoon… Handmade some seaweed crackers with my sister this year… And we even had time to fry keropok! Dont know why last year we never found time to do all these… But they tasted lousy-er than Jong’s mom’s… oh yeah… the main problem we forgot the MSG hahahaha…!
And as a tradition in my house (not the Chinese, mind you), we’ll stick all the fake apricot flowers (I think!) on the potted plant outside the gate… don know when it started but since then it became a must! But not bad too for artificial flowers… they added on to the CNY feel… ^^
And on the 1st day of CNY a.k.a. Valentine’s… we went for sushi after church! My second sister’s treat for getting her payslip! Yay~! And Niny’s parents were so shweeeet!! The Papa got the Mama a bouquet of roses, pre-booked one okay!
*Louis please take note! :P*
There’re more photos but they’re all in FB… *Press ‘Like’ button* Hahah… although we only went to a few houses… I guess we all realised how tiring visiting can be… ^^ Got to keep in touch with each other and update! I wonder how long we could go on… This is like the 6th year since Form 5 ended! Let’s keep it up peeps! d^^b
Argghh it’s late! I’ve got a class at 8 in the morning! Gotta end this fast~~
Went out again with my visiting mates again the following night and had a good time at bing! coffee…
and oh yeah… I drove there!!! At night okay!! It was a miracle my mom let me… hahaha in fact, drove quite a lot this break… I don fear roundabouts anymore (coz it’s an auto car :P)!!
And basically yup that’s all… will post the remaining pics in FB… I’ve got to run! Thanks for dropping by!
