Chinese New Year back home

Dak. Daaak.. Daaaaak dung chianggg.. dung chiang..
That's the sound I'd miss to hear post Chinese New Year 'coz I only get to hear it during CNY. Yup, that's the sound of the lion dance. This is one dance that I loved watching. Hmmm.. don't ask me why, must be the great feeling of reminiscing my childhood memories.. My dad used to bring me and my brother and sisters to "chase" lion dances when we were little i.e. we hopped from home to home to watch the lion dances. Aahh.. I love Chinese New Year; the time of reunions; the time of family gatherings; the time of sharings; the time of fellowship; the time of love.

This year, there's no exception. I've been living away from home for more than 10 years but I haven't missed; not even one Chinese New Year with my family. I'm blessed.

The reunion dinner Mummy cooked for 20 pax! (yup, we helped of course :>)
