Reunion dinner last night was as usual a very big affair for our family. It has moved from the dining area to the living room many years ago.
And this year it has increased from three to four tables this year.
Missing my twin nephews in this pic though as one of them napped till quite late and they were only on their way when we started dinner. 😁
Getting all prepared for the 採青…
It's Dong Chiang time!!
Gotta wake up early on 初一 to welcome the lion dance, our annual tradition..
Bro and SIL with this year's 新年春联
As usual after the lion dance, the kiddos (now all big kids already) will take their do-rae-mi-fa-so pic.
So that we can compare who has grown taller faster hahaha..
Missing my twin nephews this year as they overslept 😅
And then it's the mandatory wefie shot, surprisingly a lot of them were not donning red this year..
And then a pic with the twins when they arrived shortly after the lion dance left. 😆
初一typically is a stay home day for us, we will keep 初二 for visitations.
For this year, we decided to go to my SIL's mum place to pay her a visit for a change as she always visit us at our place.
After knowing her for so many years, we never knew that she can cook.
In fact her cooking is really awesome. 😋👍🏻
My niece has even made promises that she will be back next year to eat haha..
A wefie with the 主人家 before we headed home.
In fact all of us were really sleepy then, haven't catch up on our sleep after last night 半夜场 😅
So now, it's nap time..
And then have to prepare for our 初一dinner followed by another movie. 😆
Ya.. Feast and movie. That's what we typically do on our CNY. 😆
Transformed into a monkey 😆
Ang ang outfit for 初一 🍊😆
Had to pair it with a black bottom to tone it down, cannot imagine donning a red dress with a red bag.
Sure look like a walking Ang Bao 😆
My niece has grown into such a pretty lady. My bro will sure have to start to worry in a few years to come. 😅
初一dinner with the family, finally it's not steamboat. 😅
Mum fell sick in the afternoon so skipped the dinner. ☹ Had to miss the movie after dinner too.
Glad she felt much better and no more fever towards the night.
Movie date with our cousins and relatives after dinner!!
It's quite a big affair, there were close to 20 of us I think 😅
Don't have a group pic of all of us..
Good catch up sessions of the gals..
My little niece Lina is such a little fashionista. Totally love her #cnyootd
She's such a cutie. You will be amazed how well she can sing and dance. 😍😍
Can't resist taking a pic of my cousin's 老夫子 Ang Pao. 😍😍
