How is your Chinese New Year Celebration so far?.. It's the 4th day of CNY. I bet it must be fun and wonderful. Kids and youngsters must be so happy too with the angpows and fireworks. The adults busy with the family gathering and eating, eating and eating. Talking about eating, I think I gained few kgs because of the eating feast. Oh my gosh!
Our CNY celebration this year is not that really huge. Honestly, we don't really celebrate CNY. A simple lunch on the 1st day of CNY just to mark a family gathering on CNY. I do have the blood of Chinese but it is from my great great grandfather. My great great grandpa is purely from Hong Kong. His daughter (my grandma) married to my grandpa who is a Kadazanese from Papar. And his granddaughter (my mom) married to my dad who is from Tuaran. That made me KadazanDusun.
Well, as for my hubby, he does has a Chinese blood too. I guess he has same case as me. But he really looks like a Chinese man. Some friend asked whether I married a Chinese man and I would say, he doesn't speak Mandarin..haha! Therefore, we didn't celebrate CNY that much. Tapi kalau makan2 tu ada tetap serbu saja haha.. :P
Ok lets look at what I have gone through on the 1st, 2nd and the 3rd day of CNY.
Well, as I said before, we had a family lunch on the 1st CNY at Promenade Hotel Kota Kinabalu. They called it high tea but it was more a lunch for me haha.. It was actually a high tea with the in-laws so it feels great to gathered with them. Gabriel is so happy too because he got Angpows from his grandma & grandpa and from his aunties & uncles too.
The 1st day of CNY. Ready to morning mass at Stella Maris Church and went to Angelina Albinus wedding reception later.
At entrance of Angelina Albinus's wedding reception, a blogger friend. I like their wedding portrait so much! :)
I managed to take a pic with her. I met her for the 1st time. What a gorgeous bride! Her make-up and hair-do was done by my ex-classmate, Claire Tony. What a small world! :D
And went to Promenade Hotel for high tea buffet afterwards.
3 of us on the 1st day of CNY :D
The food.. Burppp..Opps Sorry :P
While on the 2nd day of CNY, we (gabriel, hubby and I) spent the whole day at my parent's house. But right before we went to my parent's house in Tmn Bersatu Putatan, I managed to meet CheguCarol at CKS Donggongon Penampang. She ordered a Moist Chocolate Cake for her niece birthday. So we met at Donggongon to pass the cake.
Moist Chocolate Cake ordered by CheguCarol. She whatsapp me, the adults like the cake for kupi-kupi..haha..
To my surprise CheguCarol gave gabriel angpow too. And Gabriel got angpow from his grandma & grandpa at Taman Bersatu as well. Look at him, so happy with the red packets. :D Thanks to all for the angpows. :)
We then stopped-by at Burger King Putatan for dinner before heading back to our home at Jln Bantayan-Minintod. Here's the mommy and son photo. :D
The 3rd day of CNY, we didn't go anywhere. My left eye turned red out of sudden. I don't know what's the reason. So, we didn't go out as I don't want people to stare at my eye hehe. But hubby got an invitation to a steamboat dinner from his photographer friend, so he went out later at evening. Ada org belanja kan, so pigi la..hehe.. :P
I managed to bake a cake on afternoon. Oh it was addicting. My heart keep on urging me to bake something. So as my hubby and gabriel having their afternoon nap, I went to the kitchen and start to bake Banana Cake! :P
My 1st Banana Cake. Turn out nice & tasty. I will share with you the recipe soon. :)
Okay that is all for today. Thanks for visiting here. Happy Chinese New Year! Gong Xi Fa Cai.. :)
Have a great day ahead.
