Happy Year of the Dragon (2012) from :)

Happy Chinese New Year to friends, family and non the less, my readers! :) 

Finally I have bought my Domain name and from now on, this blog will be identified as and no more Say bye bye to, you had served me well for the past few years and you may need to serve me in that name for one or two pending posts later. Thank you.

So the day before first day of CNY, it's CHINESE NEW YEAR EVE!! Yeah! :D

How's your CNY eve? I had my Reunion Dinner around 6.00pm and the whole day was occupied with house chores (as usual Sunday) and dyed my hair with liese, this time is Sweet Almond, online and waited till 12.00 am, which indirectly informing you that this post is a scheduled one! :) Those firecrackers and fireworks at my housing area are like having war, blasting here and day since afternoon, I bet 12.00am, the sky will be so much beautified! :D

So now, sharing the photos I managed to took at house in the evening, the preparation et cetera..

- CNY decoration by my mom at the kitchen -

- Mandarin Oranges -

- Reunion Dinner -

A night when all the family members from near and far gathered together for reunion once in a year. A night for laughter and cherish with them. DO REMEMBER to keep away thattt.... smartphone you are holding, we are too busy with them. haha :D

- The 压岁钱 (Direct translate: New Year's Money)!! -

Me and my sisters received our red packets from our parents on the eve of CNY . :) If you want to know more about the myth of the New Year's money, do google it. ;)

 - My bling-ed nails -

Went for manicure and pedicure the day before CNY eve and the beauty centre was busy since morning which me and meatball need to wait for a while before our turn (even we have pre-booked it). This is my second time went to the saloon for mani and pedi. :P

- Night Market at Lido, Kota Kinabalu -

I only went to Lido and Foh Sang, the town area will be so packed with people. (0_0) It's a norms since earlier days when it is CNY. On the day before CNY eve, the public here will automatically visit to any of/ all the night markets which held around town (Sinsuran, Foh Sang, Lido) to enjoy the crowds and doing that last minute shopping, even the mall will be operating until 12.00am. :) How about Semenanjung? Do they have such?

That's my post for today, may all of you have a great year of abundance, wealth and prosper! Once again, happy CNY to all! :)

    About the night market/bazaar, I know in Sinsuran many people go there just to feel the atmosphere and join the crowd, without buying anything particular. Maybe buy some makan2 to get the feel of things.
