Woah little did I know and realised that we have now stepped foot into March! Where did the whole month of February went?
It’s all blurry days that zoomed pass for me now and I felt that I have a lot more of stuff that’s not been done! These days it’s nothing but work for a good solid 8 hours or more followed by chauffeuring my boy around for his classes and activities. That even my blogging took a back seat. Setting some priorities right and that would be for my family especially my kids. Don’t want to miss out those “growing up moments” 😀
So what did we do during this year’s Chinese New Year where we welcomed the Year of the Wooden Horse? Some pichas to round up our CNY hols 😉
Been ages since I went to Petaling Street and we brought the boys down to Petaling Street one of the weekend before CNY for them to see and feel for themselves the festive atmosphere.
The only mall that we managed to visit and see CNY deco is at The Curve. Love the cherry blossoms flowers and the bench available for you to take a rest. If these are only real, it would be lovelier.
Back at home, playing with their lion head. Free performance right at home!
Back in my in-laws, it’s the usual war cry of fire crackers each year. See who can burn up more crackers, the bigger the louder the better! Captured this when the opposite neighbour burn this cracker. Actually I’m more concern that those crackers don’t get caught up in some easily burn material *phobia me!!*
CNY 1st day
Kinda force my family to take a family shot hahahaha!!!! This year’s dress code co-ordinated by hubby. All in red with horses on us. So all in we have 8 horses to start off the Year 2014 😛
CNY- 2nd day
Back in KL, we had gathering with our friends. Yeah colour co-ordinated again, this time only us the parents LOL!!
CNY – 3rd day
Visited my Grand Aunt Lai Meng. Recognised her? I shall not elaborate more ^.^
In the evening, went back to my in-laws to have birthday dinner for FIL. Kiddo’s cousin all back and they had a gala time playing together.
And CNY days thereafter saw me back at work and kiddos back at school. Went back into our daily routine with weekends packed with gatherings. Went to a few and had to reject a few Even managed to pack in a gathering for my own family. A really really small gathering. Alas my house can’t accommodate so many people and I can’t cook for a big crowd 😛
Throughout the 15 days of CNY, this year is the most pathetic for me. I love and enjoy Lion Dance Performance. This year, the only one I saw was the performance at my condo’s management. Didn’t have the time at all to go mall hopping to catch those performances.
But wait… in the midst of these all, we had fun in the house as well trying to balance our eggs up. It’s Lap Chun day (beginning of spring) where due to gravity, raw eggs can stand upright!
Chap Goh Meh aka the last day of CNY which also sees the Gregorian calendar celebrating Valentines Day – 14.02.14 <3 <3 Prepared some sweet treats for Caden to give to his classmates and teachers. Spread the love, spread the love hehehehe…..
And what we did ending CNY and also Valentine’s Day? Accompanied Cavan to his classmate CNY open house. Makan-makan chit chat and went back home to sleep. And that ended our CNY celebration.
Now where did the rest of February went coz it only stopped at Feb 14th here…..
