CNY 2018

16 Feb 2018 – Who Let The Dogs Out…

Tue: accompanied sis-in-law PohKit to SGH for her appointment. Considering that she is 80 and recently had a heart procedure and hip surgery, she is in decent physical condition. Was impressed how efficient and only a short wait, amazed at how built-up and still building out@SGH. Dinner@Jos.

Wed:  Phantom Thread****set in the glamour of 1950s post-war London, Reynolds Woodcock and his sister Cyril are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutantes and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. A renowned dressmaker whose fastidious life is disrupted by a young, strong-willed woman, Alma, who becomes his muse and lover…

Appreciations to bro Les&Ivy for reunion+HeartsDay dinner. Wolf Herring,西刀, Ikan Parang is the only fish I like in my Lohei, 撈起=tossing up good fortune. For the benefits of my overseas friends, this is a CNYraw-fish salad dish with at least 18ingredients. My favourite of all has 28ingredients.

The other dishes & wines.

Lovely flowers and decorations are all in their places.

Thu: a short walk to the wet-market to find out that many stalls are closed and quite rightly so. CNY Reunion dinners are often considered the most important get-together meal of the entire year and ppl need to be home preparing the foods. Tkx to Jo&family for including me for theirs.

12mid-night: and so it is time to say bye-bye to the Rooster. The mini-garden from #6 sprouted in time to welcome the Dog.

Fri: KungHayFatChoy 恭喜發財 to my Cantonese family&friend and a Happy&Healthy Year of the Dog 2018 to all celebrating.

Appreciations to bro Les&Ivy for welcoming the Year of the Dog with family&friends for yummy lunch&wines on this 2018 1stCNY day.

Was not focus enough this year to capture more pix before ppl had to leave. Bro Steven’s branch left earlier, so did sis Jo and Michael, Sharon&Alex. Tkx to Alex for forwarding me his pix. Unfortunately it will not be possible to get all my siblings&I+our families together for a group pix.

Who let the dogs out
Woof, woof, woof, woof, woof
Who let the dogs out
Woof, woof, woof, woof, woof
Who let the dogs out
Woof, woof, woof, woof, woof
