2nd day of CNY

Posted by Dawn at Monday, February 15, 2010
It's carrot cake time! Has been like that every 2nd day of CNY when we go to our 'carrot cake' aunty's (whom we call her that for obvious reasons) house to indulge in lots of homemade carrot and yam cake. The texture is smooth and tasty.

We quickly changed the kids and made our way there.

This was the moment we've all been waiting for..since it only takes place once a year.

All the kids were hanging outside along the corridor and lift lobby.

Caleb was sticking around with Janine and David, while Danielle would aimlessly walk down the corridor all by herself..

As for Joyanne, she sits quietly all alone and after a while, she fell asleep.

When the ball was given to the kids, in my heart, it was dejavu. Last year, the kids were snatching and fighting over the ball. It was unpleasant as Caleb was crying quite badly. Now this year, I was 'looking forward' (yea, right) to see how they would react now with the ball since one year has passed. Would Caleb and Janine still fight over the ball? I wondered...

Result: Janine still hogs the ball. She did it on purpose as she just doesnt want to pass to Caleb. David was the middle person as Janine would pass to David and David would pass to Caleb and then Caleb would pass to David..

As for Danielle, she tried to participate but guess she couldnt keep up with the rest that she finally decided to be by herself once again.

Guess she has to wait for Joyanne to grow up before they can play together. Hope they will not have the same love-hate relationship as Caleb and Janine.

For dinner today, went my mum-in-law's place for her own family reunion, together with her sisters.

Did the traditional 'Lo Hei' (Chinese New Year Salad Toss) before dinner. I really love this dish as its healthy and tasty.

Here's what my mum-in-law prepared!

Always enjoy her dry mee siam, steamed potato flour cooked with leek, dried shrimps and garlic and ngor hiang! And not forgetting her chicken curry!

How I love CNY as I get to eat lots of delicious food, meal after meal and day after day. And I feel I appreciate it more because it happens only once a year. I cant imagine eating all the CNY goodies all year round. If that happens, I would probably not enjoy it as much as I do now.

Too much of anything is always not good and makes us less appreciative of what we have.
