Chinese New Year 2006

Nothing much in terms of angbao money... Ate two reunion dinners (though I cheated on the first one, cos the rice wasn't ready when we sat down for dinner, so I just ate some fishballs). Took a few pictures with my sister, and then stoned around at home for the rest of the first day. My brother came over after we had lunch at our father's place, and he was so bored that he took a nap.

Here's some pictures of me and my sister:

Picture 309: My sister, Melody. She's starting to grow out of her clothes. See that tummy peeking through!

Picture 310: Trying to take a picture with her.

Picture 311: First day of CNY. Her eyes are squinty because of the flash. She happily obliged the big sister taking pictures by sitting down next to me without much fuss.

Picture 312: Another picture of her. Does she look like me??? Haha.

On the third day of CNY, a few of us Kendo people gathered at Enginger's house for angbao collection and some mahjong. Turns out that most of them either couldn't play, or aren't very good at it. Saizou finally learnt how to play mahjong, like the tai tai that she's going to be. Precious had surprisingly luck with tiles; beginners' luck, I call it. All I did was sit next to her and guide her. Haha. But no matter how skilled I am *coughcough*, I could never influence how much luck she had. Godspeed came later, around 7pm, I think. The moment he stepped in, he whined, "I don't want to walk the brown one. It licked my face." In the end he went dog-walking with Little Unwashed Body and Lawyer. I don't see the fun in walking dogs! So much exercise. As Little Unwashed Body said today, "Exercise??? What a foreign word!"

In the end, we left Enginger's house pretty late to have dinner. My seafood platter was sub-par! Not enough rice. Lawyer was disgusted at her fish. Saizou didn't finish her fries (what's new?). Godspeed and Enginger shared some fancy combo that Godspeed came up with.

Picture 313: Remainds of dinner at Fish & Co.

Picture 314: Godspeed and Enginger, talking 'business'.

Picture 315: Little Unwashed Body, Lawyer, and Saizou!

Picture 316: The guys, Godspeed, Enginger (with another weird look as usual), and Yasashii Man.

Picture 317: Me, Little Unwashed Body and Lawyer. Flash too bright larh.

Picture 318: Only I can take nice, clear shots without flash! Posted by Picasa

Who else is opening house to visit this weekend?? Heh.

I did not whine... That kurei just gave me an over zealous lick before stepping on my shoe. And his freaking 30+ kg can. I don't mind walking him next time though.
