The New Year For The Chinese

I think this is some sort of a mandatory post for a lot of bloggers out there as whatever and wherever I click, it's all filled with the CNY posts. I did not want to post the same thing but then if you can't beat them, join them!

However, I am a very lazy person as I like to have the pictures do the talking instead (as I've been talking too much and too loud 24/7 in real life)

In summary, I spent 3 days of my CNY in Ipoh, the place I was born and bred, visiting houses, "making indirect source of income", eating and.... errr.... eating too.

I did not know that purple was the theme of the year

It has been a tradition for my family to have a tea ceremony every 1st CNY morning.

Children will wish the parents all the well wishes before the parents hand their ang pows to us.

After that, Mission Accomplished!!

This year, Dad managed to come back from Dubai (for those that do not know, dad has been working outstation ever since before I was born so we seldom see him) to celebrate CNY with us, therefore, we managed to have a family portrait together.

The Lim family portrait

10 years down the road, if we were to take the same portrait again, let's see who will be carrying their kids first!
