Chinese New Year 2011

Wayyyyy belated but better late than never ;) Blame it on my long-winded Vietnam posts!
I'm too lazy to write much, so just photos from CNY family meals -


Salmon Yee Sang @ MIL's place
This was my second round. My first round was a mini one with hubby and Elyssa. I thought it was a little silly (we were at a chinese restaurant) but hubby insisted that we needed one for our little family. Ha ha.... we got quite a lot of glances from other tables! I think it's gonna be our family tradition from now on :)

Yummy CNY eve lunch cooked by my MIL
(some dishes not in photo)

"Lou-ing" homemade Yee Sang at my parent's place during CNY eve dinner
We had steamboat dinner that night. Totally forgot to take photos

Kids with the Ipad. I was amazed how quickly they learn!

That night, she ate 3 chicken drumsticks, 4 cocktail sausages, corn and dunno what else!

Elyssa looked so pretty in the cheongsam.

Irene said...

Adrine said...

Cat - Yes, it was a nice makan session. Looking forward to the next one ;)

Luciana - thx! I think that's probably going to be the first and last time for that particular cheongsam. Already a bit too tight for her.

Alice - he he.... CNY was about eating, eating and more eating :)

MummyGwen - I tot hubby was the only funny one ;) Elyssa only likes the crackers from the yee sang tho.

Irene - I'm not so keen on the yee sang itself, but I like the "lou-ing" part of it. Alwiz so loud and merry :) You can start the mini yee sang tradition next year too!

Mommy to Chumsy said...

Mummy Moon said...

Hi Adrine, nice blog. I really enjoyed your well taken pics here.
And the CNY dinner looks fantastic.
Can see everyone had fun.
We miss having that Yee Sang this year.
Have a nice day and keep a song in your heart.
