Happy New Year! 恭喜发财!

恭喜发财! 恭喜发财! Chinese New Year last for 15 days, so it's not too late to wish you guys HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!. CNY is getting more and more boring as the years goes by, perhaps it's because everyone has grown up...

I still remember playing block catching with my cousins every CNY! Just wanna record down things that happened during the first few days of CNY in this post!

#1: Steamboat at Yingzi's house!

I thought it was quite bad to go to someone's house empty handed so i decided to drop by Sakae Sushi to buy Yusheng (30 bucks!) for everyone! Honestly, i don't really like to eat Yusheng (Veggie, yucks!) but i like to see everyone gather and "play" with the Yusheng! Got the very happy CNY feeling, don't you think so too? :D

Everyone getting ready to mix the Yusheng!

Looking at everyone's happy faces makes me feel that the 30 bucks was worth it!

Caught on camera with my million dollar smile! *ka-ching*

Love to see the aftermath of the mixing! Total mess, hand kena leg kena :D

Group photo to end the night! HUAT AHHHHH!

#2: Chinatown on CNY eve!

It's like a MUST for my family to do down to chinatown during the eve. No idea why, but i don't really mind going down cos the things there are quite interesting :D

Sweets at $1 for 100gm!

The crowd at night is damn scary.

#3: Reunion dinner at home!

It's not everyday we get to sit down and have dinner together due to our busy schedule, CNY eve would be a good chance! My mum, being overly-excited, prepared a lot a lot of food. Really too much for 4 person, you shall see later.

Didn't know i have a steam boat cooker at home. I think 5 years never take out le!

I see nothing special in abalone. It's like rubber to me -__-

See see see! All the leftovers! Have to pack into little little plastic bags and keep in the fridge. The tragedy is, we have to eat steamboat for the next few days...

#4: Actual CNY day, visiting!

2 act chio photo of myself. Minor photoshop done only :D

From the left: My sis, my dad and my mum. I was taking the photo!

Love CNY goodies! CNY is the only time i get to spam all the heaty food.

Me and my cousins gambling in the room. Using seeds as our bet -__-

Love letters! One of my favourite CNY goodie :D

#5: Aunt's house!

My dad gave me 100 bucks to become the banker for blackjack. Was on a winning streak but slowly the luck went out, and i lost $70 in the end! So when they switch bankers, my sis and I won back 50 bucks, so we only lost $20 in the end! YAY!

Stayed overnight till the next morning. Was playing the "Dungeons and Dragons"! Quite exciting but it took 3 hours to explain each and everyone "Roles & abilities", finally at 3am, we started the game! It's like dota, but in a boardgame format!

Left my aunt's house at 6am. Headed for Mac breakfast & slept all the way till noon.

That's all for my CNY. Guess everything is back to normal now. Realised i did not talk anything about Ang pows! But then, i haven't count them yet. Lol! 新年快乐! :D
