Happy Lunar New Year!

So how was your Lunar New Year celebrations? We had a scorching one this year with the temperature hitting 42 Celsius on Sunday.

I made some simple preparations around the house, including some homemade ang pow decorations hung around the house to give it a festive air…

Nathan was very excited to wake up to the festive atmosphere and eagerly received his ang pow!

We assembled a steamboat lunch to celebrate with friends – the easiest meal to pull together for a group. I just stopped by Emma’s Seafood to pick up most of the ingredients.

The next day we headed out to Northbridge to check out this year’s Perth Chinese New Year Fair. The food at the market stalls were ridiculously overpriced, but we bought some anyway so we could enjoy the full spirit of the whole festive celebrations.

The big highlight of the celebrations was the street Lion Dances. It was Nathan’s first time watching these bright colourful creatures at play, and he enjoyed it immensely.

Hope your new year celebration was equally if not more memorable!

And so Nathan’s very first day of kindergarten is over. It was a mixture of good, bad, sweet and sour. I think that so much happens throughout the day, it can be challenging for a little person to filter through it all.

These days my days are packed full to the brim. From the moment I wake up to the sound of Grace calling through the baby monitor and Nathan’s cheeky face peering at me over the edge of the bed… to the evening when I finally tuck them into bed and say goodnight.
