It was just us this year, but that's okay. I've sort of got used to having low-key celebration for all things - birthdays, Christmas, New Year. And yesterday was no different. For Chinese New Year, we had this tiny, miniscule celebration at home with just the kids.
I don't even know whether I can call it a celebration cos what we did was wake up, wish each other Gong Hei Fat Choy and eat the sticky rice cake for breakfast. That was it. I couldn't get the angpow packets from China town market cos I was busy cooking on the eve of CNY and hubby being hubby didn't even bother searching for it. So that explains the absence of angpows. Anyway, after making my family eat the sticky rice cake, our CNY was deemed official and we were all free to get on with our lives again.
By mid afternoon, we've forgotten about CNY cos it was time to celebrate Valentine's Day. So after lunch, we all got ready and hubby took us out to watch this movie.
You can't go wrong with this one on Valentine's day. It's highly entertaining, to say the least. After the movies, we headed to Burger King for takeouts and I screwed up my diet by eating a double cheeseburger combo, loads of chips and fizzy drinks. And that's how we celebrated the day of love. How's that for cincai?
