Reunion Dinner

Every year we do 2 reunion dinners on the same night. We go over to my mum's place at 6pm, then head back for dinner at 8pm with the hub's family. It's a good thing we live close to my mum.
Lo-Hei or Yu Sheng (Prosperity toss)
For as long as I can remember, we've always had steamboat for our family's reunion dinner. We all love steamboat, and I'm glad the kids do as well. There's just something so comforting about traditions that you carry through from your childhood all the way to adulthood.

I couldn't resist taking a picture of this plant. The flowers only bloom during Chinese new year. Apparently, the Chinese buy living blooms to decorate the house as it signifies rebirth. My mum has one growing in her garden! How lovely. The vibrant colours really lifts my mood :)
Beautiful hues
It's back home and round 2 of Yu Sheng. 
Symbol of abundance and prosperity
Everyone ready?
Let's see who can toss the highest

Who's the VIP this year who gets to sit on Ah Gong's lap?

Here's wishing you and your family a very happy and prosperous Lunar New Year!
