Welcoming the Dragon Year

23 Jan 2012 – Goodbye Rabbit Year

The visits started 1030hrs with 4th auntie Poh Kow. Good to see cousin Wilki & Patty visiting from HI/USA, Jay & Daisy and their 3 sons Josh, Jordan & Jagger (4 generations together). Continued to 10th, 11th and 13th aunties.

Thanks for lunch and wines@Les & Ivy with the siblings and their families. By the time the camera was ready, bro Steven & family had unfortunately left to do their visitings. Grandnephew, Lucas’s new toy to check out everyone’s heart and probably also to make sure that his baby sister will be delivered on time, adding another purple generation in Mar!

The visit continued to a long-lost cousin, Karen! Her parents are visiting from KCH/Malaysia. Met with auntie Ngor and uncle Kuan a couple of years ago. Auntie Ngor is father’s cousin on paternal grandmother, CHAN Swee Ngor side. Not capable of covering this branch. Another cousin, WingKei living in Christchurch/NZ is taking care of this branch. Appreciations to Karen for including me in their lovely condo@Seaview for their delicious spread.

After 12hrs of visiting, it is time to crash. CNY always bring back good childhood memories with the anticipation of new clothes, yummy food, fireworks, games, house filled with joy & laughter together with families & friends and not to forget red packages etc… 🙂

In every conceivable manner, the family is link to our past, bridge to our future – Alex Haley

  1. Looks like yummy food and great company! Give them our love and well wishes for a happy new year.

    • Linn, wish you all could be here too. The family sends their well wishes and are amazed with your 5 children!

      But then considering that my paternal grandmother had 15 children and another 3 with the second grandmother, maternal grandmother had 10 and my mother with her 7!!!!!!!

      You are in good company 🙂

      Thankful to you and May for letting me enjoy your 5 + 1 children, thus making me a very blessed grandmother of 6!
