Today it's our last day at work before Chinese New Year. We will be "balik kampung" tomorrow!!! We aim to reach Ipoh by noon time so that we can still enjoy the fabulous food at Ipoh, a.k.a., the food heaven!!!
We will be away from 23rd Jan to 3rd Feb 2009, and so there will be no posting for this period of time as we don't have internet access at home. But we will certainly take lots of pictures to share, especially to capture the time when Hao Re goes 拜年 with his brand new Chinese New Year outfits, must be very cute, I imagine :-)
By the way, he has already been independantly "trained" by us at home and by his teachers at school on how to do the 恭喜恭喜 or 恭喜发财 gesture. Hope he is willing to do this stunt time over time to amuse our families and friends (ha, bad mummy, use the little boy as the "entertainer"!!!)
Oh, this little guy loves eating, and he would just eat anything. We were making the 芽菇饼 (or 芽菇crisp) over the weekend. This little fellow like never has enough of it (my mum was surprised he likes it cos it has a bit of bitterness). We took out one piece for him, he stopped what he was doing, and concentrated and finished the piece of crisp. Then he would bring the whole bottle of crisps to whoever he saw, me, daddy or Jiu-jiu, and asked us to open it for him, time after time. Though we were worried it might be too heaty for him, but luckily it turned out all right. Daddy and jiu-jiu finished all the crisps in less than a few hours, so I worry no more. But when we are at home (=my parents' or in-law's), when he sees all the Chinese New Year biscuits, I think he will get very excited and he will sure sample each and every type of he goodies!
So, I thought I should post some photos taken yesterday, before CNY, as a record, so as to compare with the version of Hao Re after CNY, because he might gain a lot of weight due to all the CNY goodies he eats!!!
Pictures taken using my very old handphone, so it's not fabulous. We had dinner at Sakae Sushi yesterday, and Hao Re happily fed himself with fingers or with the spoon.
So, with this, we are all set to enjoy our long Chinese New Year holiday! Wishing all a Happy Ox Year!!!
