Foodful 2010 Chinese New Year

New Year come.. New Year go… How do we prosper from CNY? We eat! Yup we had a week holiday and all we did was eat and laze around and probably eat and eat and eat. We see food, we put them into our mouths, we see mandarin oranges, we stuffed them into our mouth, and when there is keropok, nothing stops you from finishing the whole container. Then when it comes to liquid, there’s never enough; the packet drinks, Shandy, soft drinks, beer, etc. So, how did I prosper from my 2010 CNY? I’ve picture summarized it below:

Reunion Dinner @ In-Law’s Place


2 missus with empty plates

This year, the Reunion Dinner was very simple. There wasn’t much card playing too. But, smoke detectors were definitely beeping.

We have sweet cravings too.. at New Zealand Ice-Cream and NO this wasn’t Nancy’s craving. She had Durian Flo. So did Hubby and Joe. Judith and Javier have Vanilla ice-cream, so… this cup of prosperity of Orange+Mang0 was mine.


We saw and heard many many Lion Dances

It looks so good and believe ME.. believe Jake or you can ask my parents.. this plate of ‘Yee Sang’ was really really good.


Everybody let’s tower high the mixture… let’s hope this 2010 will bring abundance and prosperity in health and wealth. Wink-wink!

Seventh Day, Saturday – Home to KL Tower

Little Victor came over on Saturday. My mom babysit him while his parents went to work. We even got to play with him a little before we left to in-laws place.


Judith loves babies, just like I do!

We went over to in-law’s place after breakfast and the kids spent their time making dominoes out of cards.. even the adults joined in the fun.

Still beautiful but not amazing anymore

The NEW YEAR has passed, soon old ends and new begins. Time sure passes by fast these days. Birthdays after birthdays then celebrations after one another. But, one thing for sure is to be grateful in whatever you do. Be glad with what you have and don’t complain as there are others out there who are less fortunate than you.
