Our family back home celebrated CNY without us this year. They sent us a lot of nice photos that they took. Even though we’re not in Singapore, the boys still received a lot of love (= a lot of ang pows) from their grandparents, uncles and aunties!
We celebrated CNY here in London too, just not in a really big way. I have some girlfriends from Singapore who are visiting these two weeks, and they lugged so much goodies in their luggage bags (boys are already halfway through the first box of bah kwa) that I can’t thank them enough. The Singapore/Malaysian folks in the college organized a yu-sheng session over the weekend and we all participated in the fun. We also met friends for lunch in Chinatown over the weekend and watched a teeny weeny bit of lion dance from our restaurant window.
