Happy Lunar New Year!!

Hello again! It’s been quite a while! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ve been too busy enjoying life and…I’ve been just, well…too lazy to blog. ๐Ÿ™‚ Domo is sleeping soundly beside me now…sweet! I love that furry boy to bits. He brings such joy to my everyday and I feel all motherly towards him sometimes. Haha. Before I go on….

“GONG XI FA CAI!! May all of you have a prosperous and healthy new year. Huat ahhh!!!”

New Year for me this year felt a lot busier and I enjoyed it a lot more than usual, with more visiting, more ang paos ($$$~whee!), more gambling, and way too much yummy food and pineapple tarts. Did I tell you all that I’m a pineapple tart addict? I polish off tubs of them…definitely not good for the slim hour-glass figure I’m gunning for. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Anyways, I had a wonderful time ushering in the new lunar new year. I hope its a good omen. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m going to have a greattttt 2008! I can feel it! Haha!

Picture Time!

Domo got a new CNY outfit too!

*gong xi gong xi!*

Chewing up one of his many toys…Mr Tigger.

Reunion dinner was a slightly different affair this year with it moved to a restaurant instead of the usual at an uncle’s place.

Afew of us on the ‘cousins table’.

My new neice Ashley. Her first CNY! She’s super cute and lives in London. I hope she adopts the nice English accent. Haha…I’m so superficial…

Let’s toss in the good fortunes! I think I did 4 of these this year…How many did you do?

Our first day tradition – A family shot at the same spot taken every CNY, with a new addition to the family this year…Domo! ๐Ÿ™‚

My cousins Aubrey and Andrea. They have blossomed into such cute girls!

Had some friends over for dinner and gambling.

We had steamboat for dinner…guess the number of fish/cuttlefish/pork/mushroom balls in there! I prepared way too much food…and threatened to lock all my friends in till they finished up the food. Haha.

We tossed ‘yu sheng’ again…and had a lot of trouble trying to come up with those auspicious chinese sayings. I think ่บซไฝ“้”ฎๅบท was said one too many times. ๐Ÿ˜€


All focused and gambling intently (some boys slightly distracted by Victoria Secret’s Runway show on TV. Note second picture on the left. Haha.)

We all had our ‘secret’ auspicious things placed in our best feng shuis to bring in the luck. ๐Ÿ˜‰

My superstition.

Domo got really bored watching us play cards and fell alseep…aww….

A couple of days later, in the spirit of CNY, my family and I trooped to Sentosa for the flower display.

Pretty mummy is born in the year of the rabbits. ๐Ÿ™‚

Most of the flowers were looking rather sad drying up in hot Singapore, but nonetheless it was a nice family outing. ๐Ÿ™‚

Alritey, that’s about it! I hope you all had an equally fantastic time as I did. If not…dash out to catch the last bits! You have 4 days left! Huatttt ahhhhhh!!!!
