CNY 2014 Day 1Tuesday, February 18, 2014
The time has come to another Chinese New Year and this time, in 2014. How did your CNY go? Did you receive more ang paos than you expected? I hope so! I guess what kids look forward to most during CNY is to get red packets. For me, it is getting red packets AND wearing new clothes and taking amateur modeling pictures of myself. Hahaha
This year was different though. Everything was a mess. If you are following my dayre, you'd know that I lost of Grandmother just right when Chinese New Year is approaching. There are so many traditional rules to follow that Chinese New Year wasn't as good as what I anticipated it to be..
I collected like 2 red packets this Chinese New Year and also did take vain pictures but just not that many. I am pretty happy with all the pictures despite everything, though (:
Got up for the first day of Chinese New Year not early like previous years at all. Didn't even have the urge to paint my nails and do my hair nicely. I'm just lucky I got my hair looking decent without trying too hard.
Of course, this year's Chinese New Year does not involve visiting both of my Grandma's place. We decided to all gather at my Aunt's place instead. It was honestly speaking, quite boring. Except when Valerie, my sister and I went a little creative when we decided to take some amateur modeling pictures and watched "The Tuxedo" in Valerie's room. Haha those were the highlights of that day pretty much.
Remember when I say creative?It includes thinking out of the box...
Last 2 pictures were ones I told Valerie to pose. Thought I did portray that artistic vibe pretty well in those! What do you think? Out of 10, maybe a 9? HAHA
