0 Happy Chap Goh May ..come and gone

How time flies, the final day of the Lunar Year period is already upon us. It's been a flurry of activities and I'm going to miss the family camaraderie, the customs, the festive food and beautiful decorations.

We had our reunion and tossed the yee sang for prosperity, as is customary on the eve of every Lunar New Year, in our family.

Prosperity, Abundance, Fortune..probably the most overused words these couple of weeks. Though not a bad thing, it's getting a lil unoriginal. But who cares, right? Well wishes are well wishes, no matter how it's worded. So..

"Kong Hee Fatt Choy.. Here's me wishing you joy and prosperity this Rabbit year. May good fortune befall you and may your bank account be provided for in financial abundance."

Tried out a new restaurant for our reunion dinner

Heritage building, typically Penang

Bringing the family together

Yeah, that's our table alright

The start of every reunion dinner -
Yee sang (Raw fish salad)

Mix it all up and say some "auspicious words"

The higher the toss, the more prosperous

Burp! I'm done
