Chinese New Year has always made me happy; delicious home cooked food, get-togethers with family and friends, and of course, the angpau! Smiley

Being back after 2 weeks vacation, I am still not in the right mood for anything. Seriously, I need to get out of my vacation mood and get back my blogging mojo. Smiley

Anyway here are some pictures I took during the Chinese New Year...


What to do on a 3 hour flight? I couldn't sleep FML


This is the Queen, the most important person in my life.


People I love!


Flowers in my mom's garden and I have no idea what it is called. Smiley


*dong dong dong chiang* It was exciting to see the enthusiastic lion dance!


Without noise makers firecrackers the CNY would be incomplete.


Yee sang, an auspicious must-try dish during CNY.


It is said that while tossing the yee sang, you have to wish out loud for what you want, and raise your chopsticks as high as you can. Dang I was too hungry and I forgot to say my wish aloud! Smiley


Cousin brother, Dr. Nick got married on the fifth day of CNY. That's the wedding car.


The wedding cupcake tower. Smiley

As usual, I took a ton of pictures! I'll post some soon, I promise! And, I will drop by all of your blogs to catch up as soon as I can.

So... how was your CNY / Valentine's Day?

May we all have a Tiggerific year ahead!
