Chinese New Year's Blast

Had my reunion dinner on the 13th February. It was the same every year. Relatives will be coming back for dinner. As usual, my uncle who is my dad's big brother will be cooking at my grandma house. The dinner was superb!
Photobucket
The elderly will be sitting at the dining place whereas the grandchildren will be setting up a table and enjoy our dinner at the living room every year due to insufficient seats.

My grandma's daughter in laws a.k.a my mom and my aunt were busy serving, preparing and cleaning up throughout the day.
Photobucket
Chicken wings, roastducks, fish, vegetables and my uncle's famous's bak kut teh soup. Those are the food we enjoyed. Not to mention that the delicious roastduck was bought from Sun Yeong Wai roastduck shop situated behind Tesco.
Photobucket
Frankly speaking, I don't know why we pose with the packaging of the roastduck. But to tell you the truth, the roastducks are extremely wonderful. The smell is so strong that I will eat the whole package if I continue smelling it. It's crispy-skin is the best in Ipoh!

We took some group photo with grandma after dinner. She was so happy that we decided to continue snapping.

And this photo was taken with grandma and her grandchildren which includes me.

Photobucket

Yeah, grandma and me! I used to call her 'ah ma' which means grandma in teochew.

Photobucket
Both sister joined in later.

The day after reunion dinner was 1st day of chinese new year. Went to grandma house again but sadly the 1st day is always meat-free day. Which means have to eat vege for the long hot day.

My cousin, Adrian preparing some 'nien gao'

First day of chinese new year was the same after all. Had lunch and dinner at my grandma house too.
Photobucket
After dinner was some mini singing performance by my cousin's daughter (I don't know what to name that). Her gap with my grandma is 3 generations. Which means she is the daughter of my grandma's daughter's daughter. Complicated right?

This is Tan Jia Huey. My grandma keep advising the same thing again and again.

Alex Tan with a poser shot!

This photo was taken during the 2nd day of chinese new year. Most of my nephews and uncles went to my aunt house for lunch and dinner on that day. We used to celebrate it in my grandmother's house (mother side) few years ago.
Photobucket
As what the photo caption says, I feel hungry!
Photobucket
And this reunion dinner was from my mother side.

3rd day of chinese new year slide in slowly. Went for badminton with my cousins and my uncles in the afternoon to spend some free time and to warm up our hardened muscle after so long of missing in action.
Photobucket
This cake was made by my uncle, Michael Liew (I have many uncles =D). Its to celebrate Wei Yoong's birthday which falls on 30th February. Gong Xi Fa Cai on his cake. I bet you hardly have any cakes with those greeting words.
Photobucket
2nd day also means my dad's colleagues will be coming in the evening. Coincidentally, my friends suddenly called me and told me that they will be coming to visit. To my surprise, Cheng Zheng who came back for new year break from NS also came.
Photobucket
Wai Hoong, Hong Wei, Teik Sum, Joe Hang, Cheng Zheng, Yee Lim and 3 others anonymous who followed Cheng Zheng came too. We then played blackjack for some entertainment since everyone is so excited bout gambling. Yea, the dealer was Yee Lim and Joe Hang. The last match of blackjack highlighted both of them for getting 21 and we the unfortunate have to pay double for them.
Photobucket
As for my sister's friends who were not so interested in blackjack, they played chor dai di instead.
Photobucket
It was supposed to end happily on the 3rd day. However, my neighbour's fusebox suddenly burst and the lights for a few houses sharing the same row as mine went off. We called for help for the TNB.
Photobucket
While waiting and watching them to fix the cables, we brought some chairs out and started chatting. Lights out 'party'? It wasn't really a party anyway. That's all for some minor new year updates. And for those whom I have yet to wish, Happy Chinese New Year~
