My Chinese New Year 2016

The Lunar New Year or Spring Festival has just ended and it’s time to lose some weight! My Chinese New Year this year was pretty much the same; feasting, giving out ang pow packets, visiting relatives and have friends over.

Here’s a recap of my Chinese New Year in 2016:-

Aiden in traditional wear

New year new clothes. Aiden’s wearing a traditional wear my MIL got him. Apparently it’s the smallest size but it’s tad loose in him so I reckon he can still wear this again next year.

CNY Reunion Dinner

Our blessed reunion dinner with my parents + brother + my family of three at Oversea Restaurant PJ.

Yee Sang

It’s a tradition to have Yee Sang during CNY for prosperity, good fortune, good luck and everything good. Lol

Mother In Law's Birthday

My MIL’s birthday falls on the 7th day of CNY this year which coincides with “Yan Yat” – everyone’s birthday & Valentine’s Day! How very special We celebrated her birthday at Kechara Oasis at Jaya One.

My MIL is really a good cook - Mother In Law's Cooking

My MIL is really a good cook and thank goodness, The Wifey inherited her cooking skills ✌️ Lucky me! Now my MIL always cook really amazing dishes during CNY and that explains the weight gain

And finally, it’s Chap Goh Meh! Aiden’s holding a mandarin orange but he’s not gonna throw any orange but will wanna try to see if he can pick up any orange or not. Haha

That pretty much sums up my Chinese New Year in 2016. It’s just about 10 months away from the next Spring Festival…am so looking forward to it! But for now….gotta keep fit first!

This blog is a platform to share what I love in life: food (eat), travel (play), photography (art) and life (thoughts and ideas). With passion for food, I share my foodie adventures and indulgences here. “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”

Traveling makes us a better human being as we recognise the similarities and celebrate the differences of cultures between where we travel to and where we come from. “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

Photography do more than just capturing the best moments in our lives; they also help us tell our life stories. “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
