Chinese New Year Day 1 初一 2013!

IMG_3792

初一 in my favorite dress of all; Oriental with a Twist Dress from Hollyhoque! Zonia was also clad in Hollyhoque! She got the Angular Top in Black, paired with a skirt she newly bought from Far East Plaza! (:

While waiting for our parents to come down, we took OOTDs at the lift lobby! Lighting was good yay! (:

Oriental with a Twist Dress from Hollyhoque! The dress is not overly traditional like Cheongsam, I love how I can wear this dress on usual days- outside of Chinese New Year!

Zonia was also clad in Hollyhoque! She got the Angular Top in Black, paired with a skirt she newly bought from Far East Plaza! (:

This top comes in Red and White! Personally love the Red colored one. 
First stop of every new year is paternal Grandparents's house. Here's 2012 CNY post! (:

I love Chinese New Year because it's one of the rare times we can get everyone in a photo! The cousins are camera shy on usual days la!

Xun and Kai who's obviously in army now

Ahma's fabulous cooking!

Abalone! 

Didn't manage to take pictures of the rest of the dishes ):
We all left for the second house to visit on 初一! My Ahgong's older brother's house.

This is only house where we all gamble at for about 2 hours. Another reason why I love CNY is we get to gather over the table and have so much fun and laughter whether you win or lose. Gambling during the new year is all about bonding rather than winning, don't you agree? (:

Third house is another Uncle's house in Chinatown!

More pictures, this time with Gugu Julie! (:

Gugu with Xun and her son, Howe!

Besides Zonia and I in Hollyhoque... Gugu is also in a hollyhoque dress! Cheery Strips High Neckline Dress can be found here! (: Because Gugu is 1.7m tall, she has to wear a pair of jeans underneath the dress.

IMG_3847
Lookalikes are Zonia and Gugu!

IMG_3849
All the girls of the family + Gugu who insisted she's the young group too! wahaha!

Kueh Bangkit is my other favorite CNY goodie after Pineapple tarts! I love this shot because there is my yummy CNY snack and pretty close up prints of my favorite dress! (:

Pretty sad to see that we visit lesser and lesser houses these days. I share that with my friends and they agree too. Relatives are either travelling on the New Year or folks are too old now. Sigh.... Whatever it is, let's enjoy your New Year's bonding gatherings! (:

Last shot of me in Oriental with a Twist Dress which you can get on Hollyhoque now!

Went home to rest before meeting the Grandparents to watch Ah Boys to Men Part 2 in the evening! (: This is probably my first time watching a movie with my Grandparents. Glad they loved the funny and light hearted movie!
