Lots of luck and profits to them for the Dog Year ahead – 遍地黃金 pin dei wong gam=opportunities everywhere to earn money.

View from the 9th floor.

Mon: staying in to rest – watching&enjoying the 129th RoseParade. Trader Joe’s on TV, most outstanding display of showmanship and entertainment and this was the only one that I managed to capture from the TV on my camera.

The others floats and marching bands were just as impressive bringing back memories from my first RoseParade in 1987, 31yrs ago!!

Tue: this cough has really been persistent, was hoping to kick or kill it before the CNY. Age really takes its toll as the immune-system&resistance are not working as it used to. A peaceful&quiet walk thru’ the HDBs under shelter except for 2short road crossings to the PolyClinic. After an X-ray to discover some lung infection and was prescribed with anti-B, such is life but that too shall pass.

Usual Tue grocery shopping@Giant/Parkway, and had a bite and a cuppa in the basement food-court. The first Lion-Dance for me on this 5thCNY day in an enclosed basement food-court.

The heart must have skipped some beats when the drum was at its loudest! Should carry ear-plugs with me until the CNY is over 🙂 Always enjoy this dance, but do prefer them to be outdoors.

Wed: welcome back to SIN and appreciations to Catherine&Lee’s friend for lunch@I12, CantonParadise.
