16 Feb 2016 – Combined CNY Celebrations@CC
Sat: tkx Audrey for yummy lunch and a get-together with your family and friends. Betty, Aud’s mom is a good sport to supervise the gang 🙂 Good to catch up with Julie, Karen and May. Karen’s and May’s boys are growing fast and seems even faster as the years pass by 🙂 🙂
Do sometimes wonder how we find our foot-wear outside most Asia homes, especially when there is a gathering 🙂 🙂 🙂
Great to meet Euphemia’s bro, Edward and family visiting from HKG. Met up for a few hours on the way to CC. Somehow I thought I took some pix, but obviously not, as unable to locate any. Hopefully he will send me some and will edit and update.
Edited: tkx Euphemia for the pix with credits to Patricia.
Appreciations to Freddie for his Bday Bash and tkx to Calvin and all in CC for the combination CNY celebrations. Fruit salad is my contribution…
Looks like Chris is better from Bell’s Palsy which he has been diagnosed of a week ago. Welcome Gene back to SIN after a month MIA in the Philippines. Tkx to Lucas for the sake tasting.
Sun: Renri or YanYat/Cantonese (人日, literally Human Day) refers specially to the 7th day of the正月, the first month in the Chinese calendar. According to Chinese customs, this was the day human beings were created. Happy Valentine and Happy Birthday to everyone.
Also Mother’s Day in Norway. Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers in Norway!
Tkx Peggy for home-made-self-wrapped popiah dinner party. Like that I am able to put what I like and how much I like in my popiah. Dessert was my contribution. Strange! considering that the taste-bud usually prefers savoury food but usually end up bringing the dessert! Been a while since I last saw LianChoo, nice to catch up.
Mon: Happy Birthday to Guri my lovely god-daughter, now a mother of 3. Pix taken in Norway 1981 (Guri with the white scarf), FL USA 1993 (Guri M&L), Norway 2015 (pix credit to Guri).
Blessed are those who can still remember and have fond memories to remember.
Tue: Happy Birthday Loon who was just in Tahiti on the island of Raiatea. What a nice way to spend a birthday. Beautiful pix credits to Loon.
‘We stumbled by mistake onto a 1000 year old temple site on the island of Raiatea. in 1000AD the warrior chiefs made a truce so the navigators and the priests could bless their ocean voyages in a peaceful setting. For the next 100 years they sailed from here to NZ, HI, Raratonga and started new colonies. A rock from here was placed in each of those locations. A watery empire was born here in the south pacific larger than Russia, Europe or US’ – Loon
Calvin & Hobbes – exactly my sentiments. Hope that the immune system is strong enough to prevent catching these germs from many coughing people. That too shall pass and tomorrow is another day…
