#100HappyDays ~ Days 23 – 28
It’s been a relaxing Lunar New Year. Decided to take a break and enjoy the festive season with families and friends. 😀
Day 23 – Lunar New Year Eve
It’s a tradition to have the reunion dinner with family the eve before Lunar New Year. Mum decided to keep it simple and prepared a huge pot of soup with abalone, plus other dishes.
Day 24 – First day of Lunar New Year
In Chinese tradition, red is very auspicious. Ang pows (or red packets) are given as a gesture of wishing prosperity, health and all things good. Gotten my first ang pow from Mum. There is also a tradition to place the ang pows under the pillow for longevity of our parents.
Day 25 – Second Day of Lunar New Year
On the second day of Lunar New Year, daughters who are married will be back visiting their parents. My sisters are back of course and on top of the ang pows, I received some nice card holders and coin pouches from my second sis. Not the usual stuff that people give away during Lunar New Year, but hey, it’s a festive of giving! 😀
Day 26 – Third Day of Lunar New Year
This is the day when most retail malls are opened as the public holidays are over and shoppers start streaming in. So, I went shopping with Mum and sis. Bought a nice bag.
Mahjong! We do not play mahjong often, only during Lunar New Year when we can have most of my siblings around the house.
Received an unusual Lunar New Year gift when visiting a friend. A Hello Kitty toilet roll. Licenced by Sanrio. Mind you, it’s 3-ply!
