A Little Too Much.
Both the first and second day of Chinese New Year is over and done with. On the first day, right after bathing and changing into my cheongsam, I went downstairs to feast on vegetables – don’t get me wrong, they were absolutely delish. Being rather atypical, I actually look forward (and really do enjoy) to vegetarian food, except the fake meat. I started snacking shortly after a few breathers and it just went on throughout the day. One by one, everybody came and it became really noisy to a point that I couldn’t really hear what my cousin was talking about. However, it was of course, quieter than usual, having the fact that my cousin brother’s in Ozzie plus his bunch of friends weren’t around to add to the noise.
My aunt, cousin, both my niece & nephew and myself. Adorable innit?
The men. And you do realize the ratio of women to men in this side of the family? Hehe.
Cousin Millie & yours truly. She’s like my very own sister, ahaks!
This year, the ladies in the family had decided to don cheongsams and my, did we look good. I’ve always loved wearing a cheongsam during the Chinese New Year. It adds that extra bit of tradition into the picture. My cousin’s family of four all came in the Chinese traditional costume and the kids looked extremely adorable, especially the little boy (who happens to be a potential heartbreaker)! I’m hoping that next year, everyone (hopefully) would come in the traditional costume as well. It’ll definitely be awesome.
Future heartbreaker, yes? ;)
The second day was spent at two of my aunt’s house and my cousin’s place. More on that in the next update, I guess. Hehe. It’s 5.15 a.m. right now and I should be heading to bed.
Have a blissful week, sweethearts!
