Happy Chap Goh Mei 2015

So tomorrow marks the 15th day of the Chinese New Year celebration. So before the celebrations officially come to an end, let me squeeze in a quick ‘Happy Chinese New Year’ greeting to you all.

Our Chinese New Year was relatively quiet this year. We had a simple home cooked reunion dinner on the eve. We had plans to head up to the city to watch the lion dances in Chinatown, but our family were all struck down with a horrible case of gastro. So we all spent the weekend running back and forth between our beds and the toilets. We did have a couple of lovely catch up sessions with various friends afterwards to make up for it.

The kids were very happy with their ang pow loot. Though to Nathan, he decided the ang pows with coins were the most valuable ones, the one with chocolate gold coins being the most valuable of all. Grace was just more interested in the red packets themselves rather than its contents.

So Happy New Year. Again. Sending all the best Chinese New Year wishes and blessings your way.

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.
