Kindy's CNY Party

A few days prior to the party, mummy received a circular from the school saying that all the children are encouraged to be dressed in Chinese traditional costume for this party.

Since I did not have one, mummy started to scratch her head... until she suddenly remembered the one that Ah Ma bought for me from China last year. After nearly a year of sitting idle in the closet, the samfu still fitted nicely (a bit on the small side, though) but the long sleeves didn't seem too appropriate in the current hot weather. Therefore, with very limited sewing skills, and about half an hour of fumbling with the needle, mummy managed to make a simple alteration...

Before (long sleeves) and after (cropped sleeves)...

Well, today's the day! *Excited*

Me in my "ngam-ngam fit baju"

*Eager* Couldn't wait to "roar" in that lion costume. Since last week, I've been telling mummy about us playing the cymbals, drums and lion dance costume in class.

That's Ms J helping me to put on the lion costume

Chiang chiang chiang! Ms J told mummy how much I loved it and how super-excited I was!

Mummy, can I join a real lion dance troupe?

I was also given a mini goodie bag.

Back at home, I couldn't wait to nibble on these little treats...

Things in the goodie bag - a mandarin orange, some peanuts and candies... that's all it takes to make a kid happy!

Note: All the photos in the class were taken by my teachers. Mummy requested for their favour and left her camera there.
