Cheng reunion dinner

Reunion dinner this year is special – we have a new addition to the family Mr Dominic Yibin, and mummy Mengting is still in confinement period manned by Mdm Long.

So we ventured away from the usual this year. Instead of the annual hotpot affair, we argued that fixing dishes would be less time consuming than all the cutting and prep for hotpot. So the prep began.


Someone small was caught in the act pinching roasted pork before dinner!


Someone small also fought with daddy to tear open a hamper! Well well…

Dinner wasn’t bad but the conclusion was – hotpot is still the best because we can all huddle around a soup pot for a long long time.

So no more newborns and confinement mummies during next CNY k.

Happy new year Mah Mah, we hope you like the handcrafted Ang pow flowers this year!

Lion dance

Dropping off 姑姑 at NTU was the best thing last night. We got a sneak peak at the NTU Lion Dance troupe practicing for the Lunar New Year.

Don’t misread my stoned-look, it was so noisy and dazzling I could not help studying everything in sight.

Daddy was one. 大伯 was one. And so is 叔叔. And 姑姑 is part of the team. How can I not be interested in the lions?

Some more, dragon year is coming! Remember, it’s dragon year, not dinosaur year ok. Mummy said I’m lucky to get up close and personal with them lions, most people only get to see them from afar.

I wanna do it again! To prove my sincerity, I’ll start my repertoire with the lion dance song!
