Welcoming the year of pig

And so the past few weeks of washing and scrubbing has paid off just for today. I remembered when I was young I looked forward for Chinese New Year as that is the time where my cousins and I get to throw pop-pops, lighting the stick that produces fireworks spark and eating all the yummy goodies and sweets. Looking back, I think we were simply in a world of our own as I had not known the tiredness of preparing for a new year.

Now that I’ve grown up, I’m not exactly looking forward for such events as they seem to be the same year after year. Even though all the hard work, it’s still great to celebrate Lunar New Year with new clothes and red packets to collect and most importantly, it’s a great time for family reunion.

Have a great and prosperous Chinese New Year.


Year of Dog

We’ve just sent of the year of chicken and welcomed the year of dog! I barely remembered the last lunar New Year and here it came, once again! Last year, I was in the states and things were a little quiet. For this year, most of us (especially the National Servicemen) looked forward for this occasion, as it is moments to catch up with love ones and most importantly, the long weekend!

This New Year seems like any other day in the year. I remembered when we were young, my cousins and I looked forward for every lunar year as this is the time we have fun with all the goodies as well as playing with “pops pops” and fire crackers in the common corridor. As we grow, all these have became a favorite past time and memories.

There is a lot to catch up to do, especially the lack of updates on this web log. Soon, I’ll be able to dedicate more of my time updating and working on new features I’ve always wanted to on this website!

Last but not the least; let me wish everyone a happy and prosperous Lunar New Year. May the year of dog bring you happiness, good luck and wealth!


Gong Xi Fa Cai

Happy Chinese New Year! It has been ages since I last updated my weblog as I am really busy with work. If you notice, I have actually moved the contents of my entire site to host it on some other server. There are many entries I have written down in my notebook but I simply couldn’t find the energy and time to post it here. I guess I’ll be posting the back dated entries here at some point in the future.

For the record, this is my first time spending Chinese New Year without my family and alone in a foreign land with a bunch of friends. There isn’t any party or celebrations here and it is just another normal working day. I suppose that you will only see people celebrating in big cities like New York or California.

Anyway, I’ll keep things posted when I have the time. To everyone out there, have fun and stay safe!
