Post-CNY Day 1 ~ Day 8 Review

Chinese New Year Eve As usual during our eve of CNY, we'll have lunch at my in-laws and dinner at my parents. "Every year my mom will cook a nice reunion dinner consist of abalones, sharksfin, mushrooms, duck etc. The food is fit for a village."

"Look at the two little monkeys!"

CNY - Day 1 On CNY Day 1, we visited my in-laws, some friends', my parents and finally my Aunt Stella in Cheras. As usual like every year, we'll all gather at my Aunt's place for a nice dinner. Cheeky Princess doing a smiling pose Princess in her Chinese "cheongsam" Boy in his Chinese costume Princess's favourite cousin, Cassandra (my eldest sis's daughter) Princess performing "Baa Baa Black Sheep" in her pajamas at my Aunt Stella's house. CNY - Day 2 After the kids woke up, we went to Aunt Stella's house for mahjong session. The kids all had fun together. The house was like a mini casino and a mini amusement park. It was filled with laughter and tears. After the mahjong session was finally over, it was way past 2am. So we decided to stay the night. Luckily, we brought clothes (for just in case). This picture was taken before we went out. Boy was trying to put back all the alphabet pieces like we always do. CNY - Day 3 Since Boy slept earlier last night, he woke up at 9.30am and Princess slept late, so she woke up at 11.30am. "Good Morning Boy!" Princess trying to cover Boy with a piece of muslin cloth. In the midst of it, she woke him up. After being woken up by Princess, he decided to play some toys to entertain himself. Princess trying to wear her pants. CNY - Day 4 We had a few friends visiting our place in the evening and we went for seafood dinner. After dinner we went back to our place and the kids had a good time playing with the aunties and uncles. These pictures were taken in the morning after their bath. CNY - Day 5 & 6 : Genting Highlands Holiday Our schedule to go up Genting was supposed to be at 10am but we woke up at ten. By the time we finished packing and bathing the kids, it was already 11.30. We had McDs in the car and soon after the kids fell asleep. Daddy and Mommy had a peaceful drive up and reached there at about 2.30pm. We stayed in a room sharing with my sis & family. The weather there was great unlike in KL .. hot and humid. The kids went for some rides - Boy enjoyed the most ... happily 'driving' the cars that he was in. There were clowns and 'God of Fortune' (chinese - choi sun yeh) around the place and gave Princess a scare. She's always not into these kinds of things. She kept saying 'I'm scared' whereas Boy was like he couldn't care less of what's happening around him. Hmm .. dunno maybe boys are braver. We went to the outdoor theme park. My sis and I paid for ride entrance fee to accompany the kids whereas the daddies paid for a no-ride entrance fee so that they can take pictures and look-out for things. CNY - Day 7 My two friends and kids came for a visit in the morning. We had lunch outside and went back home to recuperate. For dinner, we went over to my Aunt Stella's house again. Princess simply love babies. Princess together with Baby Ashley (Cousin Jerry's daughter). We went home at 12am. Princess was so tired, she crossed her legs while sleeping. So bossy!! Hehehe. CNY - Day 8 Dinner at my mom's. As usual, the kids had a fun time playing.

    Chinese New Year is always a fun time for kids. Always tiring for mummy and daddy though.

    After a long absence such a long post.. :P

    Looks like the kids and you guys have so much fun!

    Darien's CNY costume is cute but a bit oversized huh? But then he can wear it still next year, and probably the year after.

    I like the video on Denisha wearing the pants, things we take for granted seems like a feat to a child. But she managed.. how old did she start doing this on her own?

    Looks like a great CNY for everyone. Your princess has such a cute smile. Great pix.
    I too had the same thought as Zara's Mama on your girl wearing her pants. Only parent's think such things are significant. Hahah.

    Welcome back! after missing for a while, it's good to see the back-dated posts for an update of Denisha and Darien. They seems to be getting cheekier each day-hor?

    i really like the kiddies' chinese costumes. even if the kiddies can't wear it anymore, i think you should keep them for remembrance.
