CNY 2012

I spent my CNY differently this year! Parents decided to spend this CNY in Taiwan instead!

If you dont know me well, Im the typical Chinese girl who loves Chinese New Year! I love tradition!

Besides all the delicious food that is only served during CNY, buying new clothes is also an important part during CNY.

This year we only spent CNY eve and the first day in Malaysia! I was pretty emo because I knew that there is no other country to celebrate CNY like Malaysia!

You can really feel the CNY mood when you’re in M’sia especially in the malls and restaurants!

The CNY songs playing all day long and also the decorations! It’s intense!

When I landed in Taiwan on the 2nd day of CNY, I was quite disappointed because I could barely feel CNY! In the period that I spent in Taiwan, I kept thinking CNY was over ==”

Aiks, Msia is still the best ya!

Jie and I went home 2 days before CNY and helped mum to hang a red cloth above the main door of our house.

Decorations around my house!

The decorations in my house are either red or gold in color because my mum and grandma are very “pantang” ==”

Chinese New Year eve, we prayed at our grandparents’

The twins =)

Always have the same noodles on the morning of first day of CNY ever since I was born!

Gin and I in the car on the way to KL! Everyone left KL during CNY but we did the total opposite!

Had Yu Sheng at Shangri La (parents favorite place for dim sum).

Reunion lunch with my loved ones including Jo!

This CNY is the last CNY that I’ll get to spend with my parents because Im getting married. Due to traditions of the Chinese, a daughter who is married can only come home on the 2nd day of CNY.

To be honest, I cant wait for the big change in my life!

Time please fly by!

    wow i love learning all these chinese traditions! despite having lived in Malaysia I have very little knowledge of the traditions and i find it so interesting! I wonder why you’re not allowed home on the 1st day if you’re married?

    more fun traditions please! x
