Chinese New year celebration


Today is the third day of CNY celebration!

I’ve spent these 3 days visiting relative houses and getting ang powwww 😀 hahahaha.

Today, I went to my cousin’s house and there was lion dance!! This was what the “lion” placed Isn’t it cute? Image

We were pretty bored and we decided to play this. STACK block. ahhaha. 
Bring back childhood memories and it was fun!!!

And the cutest thing was that we were sitting by the table, playing cards.
One of my cousin and I started to sing, and ta da! everyone by the table followed. 

It was super cute!!! ❤ 😀

And at night, we “lao yu sheng”!! Yu sheng is also known as prosperity toss, lo hei. 

Yusheng is considered a symbol of abundance, prosperity and vigor. Yusheng is also served as part of a multi-dish dinner, usually as the appetizer due to its symbolism of “good luck” for the new year.

Shall share the meanings of the ingredients! As some, I’m still abit unclear, got some info from online websites 😀

Raw fish–> abundance and excess through the year. 年年有余 (Nian Nian You Yu) meaning “Abundance through the year”.

Pomelo/ Lime–>The pomelo or lime is added to the fish, adding luck and auspicious value. 大吉大利–> “Good luck and smooth sailing”

Oil–> circling the ingredients and encouraging money to flow in from all directions.  财源广进 Cai Yuan Guang Jin meaning “Numerous sources of wealth”

Carrots –> blessings of good luck. 鸿运当头 Hong Yun Dang Tou meaning “Good luck is approaching”.

Shredded green radish –> eternal youth. 青春常驻 Qing Chun Chang Zhu meaning “Forever young”. 

Shredded white radish is added –> 步步高升 Bu Bu Gao Sheng meaning “Reaching higher level with each step”

Peanut crumbs–> a household filled with gold and silver. 金银满屋 Jin Yin Man Wu which also mean “Household filled with gold and silver”

Deep-fried flour crisps–> the whole floor would be filled with gold. 满地黄金 Man Di Huang Jin meaning “Floor full of gold”.

Some ingredients I did not add in because it wasn’t in my yu sheng. hahahaa. 🙂

But any more information, you can just refer to online research.

Little small things in life,


As I have said the past few days, this week was definitely a terrible one, with a terribly hectic and packed schedule. However, I’m so glad it’s Friday today! which marks the last presentation for the week. I haven’t had enough sleep recently. hahaha. And couldn’t believe I only slept for 2 hours last night.  Well, no matter, I’m a girl who can’t survive without sleep. hahaa. First, I will like to tell all my readers and classmates that, Please do not lose hope. It will be over soon. :’) Although the process could be tough,

there are fun moments and experiences, knowledges learnt throughout the whole thing.

Thus, never regret it!

So here’s Ben & Jerry’s Ice cream to satisfy my cravings,Image

And my friend got this small little cute bear for me in Korea, Image

And another friend bought me a book from Taiwan 🙂Image

These small little things in my life, are the ones that kept me going despite the hard process. They are the little lights that lead me out when I was in my darkness.

Thank you for everything, thank you for everyone who is around me and thank you for single moments that I wish to remember forever and ever. Grateful and thankful. Anyway, It’s Chinese new year eve!~! 🙂

Can’t wait for cny! 🙂 Happy Chinese new year and happy holidays everyone! 😀
