Chinese New Year is something we kids always look forward to. There’s lots of visiting, feasting, yummy snacks, people to play with and of course red packets.
This year, CNY celebrations were long and over the weekend. As usual it starts with reunion dinner at Ah Gong’s. The next morning was the usual gathering. We set off late morning and arrived at Grandpa’s. Both Samuel and I were decked out in our yellow chicken outfits.. And I got my golden rooster to store the 2 mandarin oranges. The whole day was about eating, collecting red packets and the mandatory photo with the extended family.
The next day, we went visiting to 婆婆 and 姨婆’s. The usual places at Bedok Reservoir & then to Toa Payoh where I got to see the gerbils again!
