Feasting & Gathering In The Year Of The Snake

Yeah..It's the year of the snake & time to indulge in all the feasting & gathering (a time where all the us will sit down together to eat & yak non stop).

Reunion dinner was the part we looked forward to & we were able to feast on sumptuous food. I did not manage to take a decent pic of all the food as everyone was so hungry.

The children loved dressing up in their new clothes & shoes :)

At my in-law's place, they had this tradition whereby the children & grandchildren had to kneel down with mandarin oranges & said their Chinese New Year greetings to the parents / grandparents.

It was my 1st time to see such a gigantic mandarin orange, quite cute!

YS dabbled in a bit of gambling fun & we told him he was only allowed to play during Chinese New Year season.

Cousins played together in harmony *bliss*
