2013 New Year Resolution

Once I tried to list down my New Year resolution, that's the only one back in year 2010.  I will start to list out my New Year resolution again from this year.

2013 New Year resolution of mine:

1. Learn to swim.
2. Gain back my pre-pregnancy weight.  I know is super hard to achieve, but at least shade off 5kg first for this year instead of 15kg.
3. Work-life balance.  Spend more quality time with my family - this included my parents, hubby, my kids and MIL.
4. Plan once a month local excursion, two short trips and one long trip.

How about yours?  What is your New Year resolution for year 2013?

Hot Pot For Dinner

Thanks Pei for the dinner. Adults got to get-to-gather and the kids are having fun, it was great!

Burp!  We have a great dinner but are too full!  8 adults and 5 children can't even finished the amount of food prepared.

Here's our kiddos.  They had their dinner together and they played together.  They really enjoyed and having great fun!

I loved this photos that I have taken with two lovely girls.

That's my home made baked cheesecake two days ago and brought over to Pei's house.

I am glad that everyone loves the cheesecake, especially my boy, he had two serving.

Here's the three hot mama with two lovely kids!

CNY Playdate

We had a CNY playdate at one of our mommy's place today. Great to have a playdate for our kiddos to meet up and get together for few hours during CNY. As for mommies, isn't that great we get to meet up too? There are so much things to update each other, we loved to chat, we are open to all sorts of topic to discuss. We exchanged our thoughts and experience on how to handle with our kid's behaviour, growth milestones & etc.

A bit difficult to gather all our kiddos to take a group photo, they moved almost everywhere as the function room quite spacious. Therefore, I have to take them individually - Eager, my gal, Kean and Issac.

'Ang Bao' exchange time! We, mommies feel so excited and are having fun distributing out the red packets instead of our kiddos, they are more interested with all the toys rather than receiving red packets.

Reached home at about 3pm, after changing, take nap, she slept for almost 2 1/2 hours, think she is really tired.

CNY Gathering

We have celebrated our 3rd CNY together, and I am so honour that our CNY gathering hosted twice at my place - last year and this year.

We have YuSheng bought from Marriott as appetizer, Hot Pot as our main dish and home baked cheese cake for dessert.

On the spot, we can't remember meaning of the YuSheng ingredient, so we just say various 'auspicious wishes' out loud while tossing the shredded ingredients into the air.

After doing some google, here's the auspicious words to say when putting the YuSheng: -

Raw fish - 年年有余
The pomelo/lime - 大吉大利
Pepper - 招财进宝
Oil - 一本万利,财源广进
Shredded Carrots - 鸿运当头
Shredded green radish - 青春常驻
Shredded white radish - 风生水起,步步高升
Peanut - 金银满屋
Sesame seeds - 生意兴隆
Deep-fried flour crisps in the shape of golden pillows - 满地黄金

Snap! Snap! Snap! No idea how many times I have clicked. I just want to capture the best shot for them. I enjoyed capturing every moment of all the little ones, as for the most challenging is to have all the kiddos do the posting in front of my camera. Mission impossible!

Did some cropped and collage, the final result quite satisfied and here's the group photos.

新年快乐! - 'bai nian' (拜年) from our kids to their parents. We want them to learn the Lunar New Year custom whereby the younger generation pay their respect to their elderly.
