A Happy Friday

I have been looking forward to today because I could finally wear my new cheong-sam to school! All the kids at school were encouraged to be dressed in Chinese costumes today. I wore the blue one and kept the pink one for the first day of CNY.

Chinese New Year celebration at school

Among the activities planned for the day were assembly, singing, dancing, "cooking" and a mini reunion feast.

Singing some action songs

While I enjoyed playing and dancing with the lion-dance costume last year, I refused to touch it today. When mummy asked why, I said I was shy. Hmm....

Just watched from afar

I brought home a goodie bag (with mini tangerines, jellies, sweets and rice crackers), three CNY cards and a red packet filled with "gold coin" chocolates. I also made two lanterns earlier (hung and displayed in mummy's car)

Back home, after lunch, I pestered mummy to do this with me (been pestering her for weeks!)...

Mummy bought this during the Christmas clearance last month

Mummy pre-baked the cookies yesterday

Colourful candies! (for playing, not for eating)

Let the fun begin!

Here are my masterpieces, done with mummy's help, of course.




Nice to look at but too sweet and colourful for consumption

We didn't eat these at all but I did try one un-decorated one and found it yummy, surprisingly. It was very spice-y and cinnamon-y.

  14. My kiddos didn't have cny celebration in school, which is a shame. Chloe looks so pretty in her cheongsam :-). And the cookies are very well-decorated. Look too pretty to eat actually :-).

    CNY last for 15 days, so here's wishing Chloe, Mummy and Daddy a very happy, prosperous and healthy Rabbit year!

  15. The cookies r too cute to be eaten. Btw, how do u keep the decorated teddies? Which won't attract ants. And if throw away, so sayang, rite?

  16. Slavemom: I did not keep the decorated teddies at all. After snapping pics of them, terus stripped them naked (removed the colourful candies) and ate the cookies. I kept some leftover cookies in the fridge. That's all :)
