CNY 2016 In A Glance

Before marriage, Chinese New Year was just like another holiday for me to relax at home. I would watch as many movies on DVDs as possible. After marriage, situation became slightly different. I have to start preparing to look for the kids' clothings, shoes, the snacks for the family and so on.

This year, we try to be a little bit more creative by using the ang bao papers to decorate the house. Children were ropped in to help out for the spring cleaning.

Junior YS brought back his colouring school work home and very happy that he could colour so beautifully.

The children dressed up in their traditional costumes for their school's CNY celebration.

We had our 1st louhei during the reunion dinner at in-law's house.

#1 Day of CNY
Some tradition never dies. We make sure the children understand that it is a form of respect to kneel down in front of elders to say all the auspicious phrases they can remember to them. As parents, we hope they will impart this knowledge to their future generations too.

Children were having a bit of fun while paying our respect to ancestors at Mandai crematorium.
