The Yuen clan gathered at our house for the first time on the 1st day of CNY. We had a small makan time together, enjoyed each other's company and even managed to catch a glimpse of the lion dance next door.
Bought some new plants for the house - Lucky bamboo
Another type of bamboo
Ryan and Jaden, with their first angpow from Yeh Yeh
Papa with Ryan and Yeh-yeh with Samantha in the garden, watching our neighbour's lion dance and fire crackers.
Too many trees. Can you spot the lion on stilts? :p
Jaden with mah-mah
We had an unexpected guest - little Max. The children were thrilled to play with Max, albeit a little while, as Lex has returned home to see his wife.
Pretty Samantha in her cheongsam
The Yuens enjoying a simple meal
The 2 cakes, one from me and another from Yeh Yeh
Papa with the boys and Sam
Ryan happily drew this piece for papa at night. Above the word 'Happy', he drew the family -papa, mama and Ryan, and Jaden below the word (due to space constraint). There's heart shape and balloons everywhere and a number '8' on the paper. Papa was ecstatic to find number 8 = 'fatt' in chinese....haha.... Why 8? I really don't know :p
Happy Chinese New Year to all!!!!!
This is one of the moments which I managed to catch on camera. Jaden wanted to go to the toilet one morning but needed help with his PJ. Ryan quickly ran to his brother's rescue before another accident happens....ooooooo
