Bits and Bobs

Had these photos in my draft, so might as well just post them.  Pretty outdated though!  Hehe.

Homemade Tong Yuen during the Winter Solstice Festival 



Puppet Stage made by Elyssa
She made it all by herself.  I was really impressed! 
But barely an hour after this photo was taken, Elyssa was tears.  Cos little Erin saw it, got jealous and tore the box apart!!! (aaarghhh!) 
The next day, Elyssa made an improved stage with curtains that could be opened and closed by pulling a string at the back. 

Food for our Christmas potluck party 
I baked cupcakes, made a simple Christmas log and cooked pork rendang. 

Simple pleasures in life -  Mamak breakfast! 

Carousel Ride at a shopping mall 

My planned "peaceful coffee break" at one of my favourite cafes
Didn't go as planned though. It was peaceful for all of 10 minutes but then they were both in an argumentative mood and started squabbling soon after.  Aargh!



Girls were playing upstairs then Erin came downstairs announcing she was "pregnant"!  (she stuffed her baby bear up her shirt. hehe) 


Ok, that's all.  Really a rojak post today!

Concert

Few months ago, reached my parent's house for our weekly "family makan" and the kids were excitedly standing by the door telling me about their concert.  I went...... huh?? what concert?

And someone passed me this Concert List.

Concert List 
Wah, not bad eh??  Got Program somemore! Everyone told me to quickly eat cos concert was to start at 8.30pm. See..... even starting time was stated on the list. 

Puppet Show time
Title was "Goldilocks and the 3 Bears". We sat there for a while waiting for the show to start then only realised it ALREADY started cos the puppets were actually being moved IN the blocks.  Wuahahaha. 




Singing Song time

Final Bow! 

My parents said they spent their afternoon practising for the concert.  Actual execution wasn't so smooth but just love, love, love the concept!!  

CNY 2016 - Lion Dance

Just like last year, we invited a lion dance troop for CNY.

Simple performance before going into the house 
They had nice new lions this year. Yay!
 (The lions last year were a little old and dirty. hehe) 

Garden Blessing

Entering the house
There was a lion dance performance on the tv too!

Playful lion trying to "eat" Erin's Barbie doll
Love the expression on her face :-) 

Receiving the "blessing" tray

Forgot to take a family photo with the lions this year tho.  
But luckily snapped a photo before the lions came. (they were almost 1 hour late this year! )

2 days after the lion dance at home, the same troop came to the office. Recommended by me la...;-)  

Entering the reception area 

Blessing my room 

With so many blessings, hope that it will be a GREAT year ahead  :-)
