Happy Ssssnake year!
Rise and shine on the first day of Chinese Snake Year. Neither slithering, nor scaly remains on ground or hissing sound made when making my way out of my house only rushing as usual with my hair 3/4 dry due to staying up late on CNY eve. You must be wondering why? It is believed that the children have to VIGIL (守夜) in return for their beloved parents to live till a ripe age and so I did.
Off to the church
Started my day early at 8.30am in a church, gave praise and thank god for his love and blessings. Tuning into the pastor’s preaching is awesomely good for my soul!
Thereafter, it was time to pay my relatives a New Year’s visits or the chinese called it “拜年”. This is when we began our feasting, catching up and exchange auspicious greetings.
The children and young, single ones are always jubilant to receive red packets (紅包) from their seniors or married persons. As always the house is filled with laughters and auspicious greetings to one another. One can never go wrong with恭喜發財. Or a longer version, 祝您在新的一年里心想事成,万事如意! Good facial exercises after one hearty day.
Huat ah! hehehe
Holding anything that is auspicious and lucky as we posed for a Chinese New Year picture after dinner. I gotta feeling that 2013 gonna be a FANTASTIC n LUCKY year!
CNY family dinner at home.
A new addition to the family tree is a cutie pie from my cousin who gave birth to an angel 1o months back. This kid sure grows fast and brings joy to people! Next shall be my sister?
Hahaha such a cutie pie! The day ended and Chinese New Year visiting will last for 15 days. How did yours go?
With love, (xoxo)
