CNY 2007

One year ago (according to the Lunar calendar, of course) I blogged about spending CNY at home and our new clothes.

This year, we didn’t buy new clothes cos everyone’s just too lazy to go jostling in the malls with the other people, frantically looking for something red that fits. So we just dug out some clothes that we had in our wardrobe and that was that. Haha! I like it better this way – fussing about clothes irritates me.

It’s our 2nd CNY without Elaine, who is stuck in Dundee because they don’t have CNY break over there – why would the ang moh care about CNY, right? Haha.

Hmm. It’s also my first CNY with BB. He came over on the morning of the eve of New Year’s Day, and spent a whole day with us. Other than that, everything’s just the same! Hehe. Glad to have you home too, BB! I still remember, last year, he was ill, alone, in Hall 😦

Well, here are some pics from our celebration this year:

Reunion dinner!

10-course meal! Roasted pork, yam with meat (my fave Hakka dish), suku (some kind of tuber/root), steamed chicken, stewed pig’s trotters, ginger steamed fish, broccoli with prawns, abalone with french beans, sea cucumber with mushrooms, braised duck. Yum! Mom cooked the whole day, but dinner was over in a matter of just an hour! We also had apple crumble for dessert, making it 11-course actually. Haha. Stuffed to the brim.

Cellphones for sale! Anyone? Hehe. With everyone at home, the amount of radiation from cellphones also increases. Just look!

6 persons, 10 phones. Haha. Don’t ask.

After dinner, we cleaned up, and started making tang yuan (汤圆) Haha. This is something that we sisters do every year. Hehe.

At midnight, we had some traditional rituals to perform, and somehow, this made me feel the family togetherness. These are the offerings for the Gods. I like candles!

Candle in the wind

Alot of people were playing fireworks, although it’s banned in Malaysia. Aiyah. The more you ban, the more we want it. Next year, my eldest sis is gonna get some for us too, so that we can also join in the *eiiiuuuuuu poppp* fun. Haha!!

Played daidee with Serene and BB after that, but I kept losing. Isn’t this the year of the Golden Boar? Am I not supposed to be luckier?! 😦

Okay! Day 1 of CNY!

Me, looking so ayu. Haha!

Bluff one lah, of course. Hahahaha!

The Loo sisters (minus 1)

My blouse looks like an angpow! Haha!

And then Lik came over, to bring Serene to his place for lunch. Sat around abit, chatted and ate some cookies, while waiting for Mum to get our lunch ready, and change into her nice clothes too. Then…

Finally, family portrait! 🙂
