2013 Chinese New Year 1

3 more days to the end of Chinese New Year! 

For my foreign readers: Although Brunei is a Muslim country but this country has Chinese too, so there is CNY public holiday for the Chinese to celebrate CNY. Chinese celebrate CNY for 15 days, that's mean if the first day of CNY falls on 1st February, then it ends on 15th February. CNY normally falls on January or February.

On the first few days of CNY, there are a lot of lion dance teams perform lion dance from houses to houses. Then the owner of the house will give "ang pao", a red packet with money inside, to the lion dance team. 

My family

CJ is getting fatter.

I like taking pics when the wind is blowing lol somehow I think the pic looks nicer.

Lion Dance by Chung Ching.

I like my lashes much from The Face Shop, look slightly thicker but natural.

My big family, a lot of members missing here.

S.Wei and Kheang is the sweetest couple I've known so far. When they went for vacation, they spent most of their time busy looking for couple/matching clothes, shoes, bags, wallets, phone case....I mean everything!
So they wear couple shirts most of the time. 

Eldy and Kheang.

Day 2

Day 1 is normally for family. 
Day 2 is when the wives visit their parents, which is 回娘家. 

Lion sitting on the sofa, so relax. 

The best team I've seen. It was by Hokkien Association, and the people are from Limbang. They are si beh pro and the lions look nice.
They no cincai play play and collect ang pao, they really put effort and they go every corner of the house. 

and they made this!
