Whole day of visitations

Posted by Dawn at Sunday, February 14, 2010
Every first day of CNY, we would be very tiring as there would be quite a number of places to visit. More so this year as I am not able to use pregnancy or my young infants as an 'excuse' anymore since they are now quite big.

The first place I went this year was to grandma's house. Took a family shot there since everyone was around.



Danielle and Caleb were dressed in clothes which my mum-in-law bought. Love Danielle's bubble dress. She enjoys carrying my bag. Typical girl.


I am pleased that Caleb seems to enjoy the company of his great grandmother.


Caleb also enjoyed company of his uncles and aunties (Ct's cousins) as they brought him down to the playground down at the block. Danielle was fast asleep in the bedroom with his grand uncle.




Stayed for lunch there before going my parent's place to 'bai nian'.


Offered tea to both my parents and stayed for a while there before we went to my mum-in-law's place where my father-in-law's side of relatives will come over. They always start off from my mum-in-law's place at Simei, then we would go house to house and visit. The host of the next house would leave about 5 mins earlier to prepare the house as the whole gang will slowly make our way to the next place. Our second stop is at Pasir Ris, the block which is so near my school.

Then after staying for a while, talking and eating, we then went to Chua Chu Kang. For the past few years, they actually came to my house to visit first where I would then stay home after that. But this year, we followed them through the night.

The house in Chua Chu Kang is a 3 storey semi-detached. Have to pass through the railway tracks.


Found out that CT's relative is actually represents Singapore in Air Rifle as we went upstairs and saw all the newspaper article, advertisements on her posing for the Sea Games and her medals.

Another interesting thing at this house was a fruit which I ate called "Shen Mi fruit" (Mysterious). Its red and very small with one seed inside. Its sourish. What's cool about this fruit is that after eating it, any food (even sour stuff) that you eat after that will taste very very sweet for quite a while.

After Choa Chu Kang, our last stop was for dinner at Yio Chu Kang. The stop I would look forward to the best pig's stomach soup I have ever tasted! Also enjoyed the huge fish pond.



The kids had so much fun feeding them and playing.

Here's our dinner. There were braised duck, prawns, veggies, steamed fish, chicken as well as THE soup which is so spicy because of the cracked peppercorns. So shiok!


Though we went back at 9 plus pm, tired from the whole day of visitations, it was fun and I truly enjoyed myself. I really dont mind doing this every year!
