Gong Xi Fa Cai!

It's new year again according to the Chinese Lunar calendar. It also marks the arrival of spring...
This is the year of the Golden Pig. I do not know the significance really but there a lot of positive comments about this Golden Pig year.

The best part about this holiday is the chance to get-together with family and friends. And being single, I still receive hong bao/red packets (plus a lot of advice to make sure I "give" hong bao instead next year!)

Barry was great with the kids at home, doing magic tricks and watching them draw and play the piano.

Craig from Singapore came over this year and we also managed to have dinner at Tarbush, Starhill with him, Jeff and Dian last night.

I have been feasting on ngah goo (fried sliced Chinese arrowroot), kuih bangkit, kuih belanda/ kuih kapit (love letters), pineapple tarts and other cookies, mandarin oranges and am looking forward to have nian gao, dried meat, waxed duck, kuaci and other new year goodies.

Am heading out soon to visit more family members and will be meeting friends over the next couple of days.

Here is wishing you : XIN NIAN GUAI LE, GONG XI FA CAI!!
