Happy Lunar New Year to all! :)
Wishing you the best of luck for this year of the Rat. :)
Personally I don't like rats very much, hahaha.
hope you receive lots of money! :P
and have great times with your families and friends, of course.
and loads of good food. :P
***
So the past few days have been busy busy busy, as my family bustled around trying to get food prepared, house decorated and cleaned and everything organised in time for our guests to arrive!
On Wednesday was our reunion dinner, which was at our house. That went pretty smoothly, and i didn't really take pictures. haha. :)
well the next day, the 1st day of chinese new year, was rather rushed. mum and dad came home pretty late from going out for last minute shopping, so we were all awake pretty late. after much cooking and decorating, we rushed to put on more presentable clothes as our guests arrived! :P
new dress =D
usually, we have loads of guests, but since the family hierarchy changed since my grandma departed, we had to go visit dad's sister instead of her visiting us. =\
so it was a change, but we had dad's 2nd cousins, (or something like that) over for lunch. :)
YuSheng
As per usual, yusheng was a staple of the menu, as it always is during CNY. :)
Go wikipedia it if you don't know what it is. :P
We lo-hei'd :P
Yusheng is a rather messy affair, especially with kids involved. lol.
mum added a new dish to the menu.
The Cold Dish
usually found at chinese restaurants when being served an 8-course meal.
but of course, it was her variation.
lots more prawn salad than there should've been
but it was gooood. I mixed it, of course it was good! :P
Chicken rice for lunch, as usual.
After the guests left, we cleaned up, loads and loads of dishes to do!
i had a short nap, was feeling fatigued.
for dinner, we headed to my aunt's house. :)
now this was more like what CNY usually feels like, with our closest family. :)
more lohei-ing occured, of course.
i'm not sure how many times we're going to be doing this! :P definitely once more today i think.
pouring the plum sauce.
weeeeeeeee.
the higher you toss, the better. :P
or something along those lines! hehe.
even baby cousin was having a go. :D
my uncle and aunt are excellent chefs. :) they've truly mastered chinese cuisine.
battered prawns. mmm tasty.
fried sweet&sour fish.
broccoli. and something on top. :P
chicken drumsticks!!
yes, just about all fried. hahaha
but it only happens once a year!
indulgence.
their house is rather high up. 10th floor.
ours is on the 3rd.
whoaaaa.
my baby cousin. cuuuuuuuuuuute. :)

there isn't much to do at my aunt and uncle's house because my cousins grew up looooooong ago. :)
so the kids had to entertain themselves. with these bone shaped maracas. hahaha. :)
i must be off now, got lots to do, more family coming over today!
happy chinese new year once again! :)

This blog is my e-diary, where I pen my thoughts, and ramblings for the day. It's also full of random photos, which may seem unnecessary. I am what I am, and what I am is a memory keeper. There won't be any intellectual drivel or anything with great meaning, so if you're looking for anything like that, wrong place for you! :)
