Welcoming The Year of the Rat 2020

25 Jan 2020 – Kong-Hei-Fatt-Choy 恭喜發財

Tue: wow! I have been blogging for 12yrs today – tkx again Lucy for introducing me to wordpress. Blogging is a good help for me to remember.

Tue&Wed: tkx you to Seb&Adrain for helping to finish the Christmas foods and appreciations to Seb for fixing my CNY light. What a treat, tkx to Gel for her absolutely yummy CNY home-made goodies, have now tasted one bite of everything – ButteryCrust PineappleBalls, ChocolateChipsCashew Cookies, BaechuKimchi and AcharChilli. Let the CNY celebrations begin.

Wed: Happy 18th Birthday to #1, first&eldest grandchild who will be graduating high-school in Jun. How is it possible that I will be having a grandchild in University this fall when I can still vividly remember my own Udays???

Thu: as we take farewell to the Year of the Pig, plx be vigilant and take extra precautions in the midst of this Wuhan virus. Hopes&prayers that this will not turn pandemic.

Movie LittleWomen draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In the story of the March sisters – four young women each determined to live life on her own terms — is both timeless and timely. Vaguely remember reading the book in my early teens.

Dinner@Les&Ivy yummy big fish head.

Fri: TGIF – a good weekend to all on this Fri&the eve of the CNY. A Healthy&Happy CNY-celebrations ahead to those celebrating. The surroundings here are ready to welcome the new year, but not so sure if China, especially Wuhan is.

Appreciations for another reunion dinner with 4thBro’s branch – sorry to miss Vincent tonight, but he is on some plane and will be back in time to celebrate the 1st CNY day tomorrow.

Sat: Kong-Hei-Fatt-Choy 恭喜發財🧧🧧🧧as I have been taught to wish for the Chinese New Year ever since I can remember. May the Year of the Rat bring us Good Health, Happiness and Prosperity. Appreciations to Les&Ivy for yummy lunch and good wines.

The only decent ppl shot is that of god-sister Pat with SengGee&LiChan. Missing David, no family pix as I was too busy catching up with Pat who is looking amazing to be 89.

The last visit for this 1stCNY day is with auntie Ngor@cousin Karen’s. A taste of her delicious home-made KCH laksa is a must to start the year, and she&Peter will be heading to the empty nest syndrome next month when Cala heads to Australia for further studies. Happy Australia Day to Peter.

I want to be like a caterpillar. Eat a lot, sleep for a while, and then wake up beautiful…
