We are all wearing new clothes!
Just read back my CNY 2013 post and noted the part on planning to do more for CNY 2014. Heh the reality is... I did even LESS! I was busy at work and couldn't take leave. The preceeding few weekends were filled with something. Life with my 1-year-older girls remains busy. (Plus I was a bit lazy teehee.)
Reunion dinner was at my house as usual. Attendees were 9 adults and 3 toddlers. The menu:
1. Yee sang with extra salmon (pic taken before salmon was added)
2. 'Poon choy' from the famous shop LYJ
3. Stir-fried broccoli
4. Lotus root soup
5. Fried fish - contributed by guest
6. Leek with roast pork - contributed by guest
7. Lots of alcohol
Hmm while this 'poon choy' was BIG (not that you'd notice from the photo. We only managed one-third of it that night), it didn't have luxury ingredients like abalone and sea cucumber. Hubby's family prizes such ingredients so guess we won't be getting this for CNY again. The prawns weren't fresh either.
The 1st day of CNY, we got into our new clothes and took pictures. Strangely enough, there are no activities on hubby's side of the family this day. So I took the opportunity to suggest going out to 1U's Secret Garden again (could be the start of our family tradition!). Had a sushi lunch at JE's request.

Before setting out
Dinner on Day1 was with hubby's side, as was lunch and dinner on Day2 and lunch on Day3. Hubby got roaring drunk at the session afterwards, sigh. Dinner was with my parents (had to cart hubby there where he ate some dinner and then went off to sleep. Carted him home again when it was time to go). After four meals with hubby's side, I must say it was nice to be with MY family! No offence meant to anyone hehe.
Let's plan our strategy on this yee sang
Still plenty of CNY days to go. :)
