Chinese New Year is rather enjoyable and stress free for us. We don’t have to do much house hopping as all the relatives converge on one place at the same time. The kids love cny not only because of the hong baos, but because of the yummy goodies and drinks. Kate must have found an unattended packet of drink and she’s sucking with all her might to get whatever is left in it. She knows that if her gor gor or one of her jie jie notices it, they will quickly swipe it from her as she’s too young for sweet drinks.

As we live with my in-laws, and my dad-in-law is the eldest in his family, all the relatives will come over to bai nian. After lunch, we head off to my parents’s place where my dad’s family of more than 80 members will converge. Easy, all done in one go. Kate was rather tired as she slept late the previous night of the reunion dinner.

Then it’s back home for dinner as more relatives pop by. It was a rare photo opportunity to capture 3 generations of males playing bingo together!

The 2 boys in the house are enjoying each other’s company even though it’s the first time they have met.

She missed her morning nap and crashed when the hubs took her home.

After her nap, it’s round 2 of fun! Her cousin’s birthday happened to fall on the 2nd day, so we went over to my sis-in-law’s place for the party.

This time, the Lo Hei was done outdoors as we had learnt our lesson from the previous mess!
