CNY visit

Posted by Dawn at Tuesday, February 20, 2007
During one of the CNY holidays, my family as usual would go to our 'carrot cake' auntie's place. I call her 'carrot cake' auntie because she will always make really good fried carrot cake for us with sambal blachan. Yum yum..

I brought my camera along to take pictures of my relatives as requested by my dad. He came along to visit as well. Yippee..

Let me introduce to you my family and relatives...

Here are the Wongs...

My cousin, whom I always call as "ting ting" is now in Year 1 University. He is studying computer. Definitely not surprise as from young, he has always been spending his time on computers and games. Beside him is my aunt. (My dad's sister) She has been a teacher for a very very long time and I really admire her for that. My family thinks my brother and I got her genes since both of us became teachers. My aunt now is involved in CCA band in HQ, always taking SSO students overseas for competitions.My uncle is retired. Used to be an accountant, but now, he spends his time wisely by doing what he loves- orchid and fishes! This family has 2 more children but both of them are now in Australia.

Now, introducing to you...the Lings.

My aunt on the left of picture is working as an accountant in Hyatt. She has been there for a very long time as well. She is very hardworking and meek. She works even on Sats and Suns at times, especially when closing accounts. I find her very gentle and a very thoughtful and thorough person. My uncle on the right is my dad's brother. He is a very filial person. That is my observation of him. In between them are my carrot cake uncle and auntie. That uncle used to be a chef in Majestic Hotel...but is hard of hearing now and he sleeps a lot. My carrot cake aunt is the one who cooks great carrot/yam cake. She accepted Christ a number of years back already and enjoys being with her friends in church. I also heard recently, that my carrot cake uncle,having a simple faith, also just accepted Christ in hospital. Praise God!

Now, here are my parents-the Lings too!

This is my dad's first time to their place ever since his accident in 2005. He must have enjoyed himself. My dad never fails to amaze me even now as he still works and brings in customers for his real estate business. He has passed down a lot of wisdom to me which has helped me since young and both my parents have been a great role models. My mum is a housewife ever since she gave birth to me...but she always seem really busy, living her life to the fullest by dancing in church, leading bible studies, taking care of dad by bringing him for physio etc etc. She used to be more busy doing much more but I guess now, her focus is to take good care of my dad and support him.

Now, let me introduce to you my brother's family..hmm,the Lings again!

There is Janine, my niece who is 1 year, 1 month old. She can run real fast now. Very cute little one who smiles a lot. Pamela, my sister-in-law who works in Mindef and my brother, who is a teacher in Meridian JC-General Paper tutor, who is going to quit soon to study theology so that he can be a missionary in future to SEA countries. Dont they look alike? Last time, people always thought they are brother-sister and I was the girlfriend. Hmm..Anyway, now that they are married and have a kid, people will know. On the right is my carrot cake aunty's son. He is a part time actor who has starred in many chinese dramas, including I not stupid 2. Hard for anyone to recognise him as he plays all small roles. Haha..

Last but not least, here is CT and I..the Gohs.

Both of us wearing bright red shirts. I have given all families my thoughts. Here are my thoughts for my husband. Chee Tiong (CT) is a very smart guy, always aceing in his subjects which makes it quite sickening because as I student, I hated such people. Haha. He is still trying to understand how I can get Cs and Bs for my subjects. Sickening, right? He is also a very blur person who just went to Anglican High for his secondary life because his friends put that as a top choice and he just simply follows, not knowing where the school was.

Even when he went NUS, he just applied for Chemical Engineering because that was a hot choice during his times then. Sigh.. I always tell him, aiyoh, how can u always follow people and not knowing what you really want. Now, he regrets a little as he told me he wants to be a medical doctor now but its too late because he do not want to waste his time studying now and neglecting me. However, in my eyes, he would always be my Dr Goh. :)

Another thing I liked about him is his drums skills. He had been in the band since primary school and playing the drums. To me, he is the best natural drummer. He is another talented guy when it comes to computers. He can spend the whole day just on internet and I can never figure out how he can spend those hours on it as much as I like computers. Ok, enough about him.

As for me, I am just a simple girl trying to live my life to the fullest-trying to do my best in what I do and just keep looking forward and not the past. Just cant wait to be a great parent now that I am pregnant and at the same time, to be the best wife, best teacher, best daughter as I can be.

Thanks for this. I really enjoyed this post. Lots of things I didn't even know myself, like how uncle worked as a chef at Majestic! I miss carrot cake auntie's place. And it's very interesting to see all the family members through your eyes.
