Gong Xi Fa Cai!!
I just came back to KL yesterday. It was definitely awesome being able to celebrate the Chinese New Year in my hometown, Ipoh.
How was your Chinese New Year celebration?
Red Packet from Maxis
Did you collect many Ang Pows this year? I think I would only count the total amount at the end of this week, because I am still collecting from all those married couples out there. (*Giggles*)
L-R: Me, 5th Aunty, Mummy, My little niece (5th aunty’s granddaughter)
Isn’t it good to get together with your extended family members in this festive season? You get to see your grandparents, uncles and aunties, nieces and nephews. Not only that, I would definitely enjoy the moments of receiving Ang Pows from my uncles and aunties.
L-R: Thomas, Me, Veronica, Catherina, Nicholas
Chinese New Year is also a time to reunite with some beloved cousins whom I only meet once a year! My cousin, Thomas is getting married soon! My goodness, this shows how time flies!
We attended GFS Banting together those days. And somehow all of us were from Ipoh.
Besides family members, this is the time you do house visitations and catch up with long lost friends!!!
A reunion for the Main Convent Darlings (Class of 2001) in Old Town Kopitiam, Ipoh
It is also one of the best times to reunite with high school sweethearts. For me, I am glad to be able to meet all of my Main Convent sweethearts except for one (Jacynta) who is still working in UK!
Especially when everyone starts to work, it will be lesser time for each other to keep in touch. That’s why I am always looking forward for Chinese New Year in order to meet these darlings.
Lou Sang or Yee Sang is a dish available during the Chinese New Year festival!
During Chinese New Year, most families would “Lou Sang” at least once!!
Food glorious food!!!
And of course, this is the time when your mum would cook the best dishes to feed your family!
Who doesn’t love Chinese New Year?
With so many Ang Pows and good food around, who doesn’t?
