Chinese Zodiac animals sequence and Chinese New Year

A few more days to go before the GOAT gallops to the 15th day of Chinese New Year (CNY). Thanks to the kids, Daddy now know GOAT ranks Number 8 on the Chinese Zodiac animals (十二生肖).

This CNY, the kiddos show us a few other tricks too. They know how to play Mahjong! It was hilarious watching them “grab” their tiles, just nice we got four kids (脚) to start a game :p

Just in case you are wondering why SengkangBabies is promoting gambling, kids are actually playing Jenga haha.

Daddy always forget the Zodiac animals sequence, except first is Rat and last is Pig. Fortunately kids came to the rescue with a catchy tune. The only downside is kids insist parents sing 100 times with them every day.

Lastly, when did Boon Yee pick up Piano? Although he is banging the notes, he got some “pattern” right?

Traditionally, this is what we do during Chinese New Year. On the first day, kids will start queuing for 紅包 (red packets). We insist each one come up with a different Chinese New Year greeting :)

Sort of a rehearsal for them before we go visiting.

OOTD for our family, not sure what is OOTD, ask the kids :p

Wishing Good Health for everyone :)

Feasting always start with 团圆饭 (reunion dinners), followed by endless meals (and snacks) at relative’s homes.

Kids love the selfie stick! They are taking turns to take wefies :)


Enjoying cousin’s company. Eating, playing, chit-chating. Having Fun!

Along the packed schedule, we celebrated Mummy’s Birthday on CNY day 2 (初二).

Other Chinese New Year activities.

A few more sunsets, and just like that, Chinese New Year 15th will be this Thursday. Just 12 months ago, we instagram our daily activities (click for story).

A new start, a period to appreciate what we have achieve together as a family and to collectively appreciate our blessings. To everyone, 新年快乐 心想事成 :)

Let’s Bo Bo Cha Cha!

Little Boon Xin blowing kisses under three charming gals. Poster is from Great World Cabaret’s Let’s Bo Bo Cha Cha.
Bet she does not know Rose Chan and her snake was super-hot (literally) during the 1950s. Even Daddy and Mummy is too young to remember :)

Anyway, Boon Xin is excited about her date with Mummy and Daddy.

The synopsis reveals how an aged (and balding) Museum caretaker once lived a colourful past at Singapore’s most famous nightclub, Great World Cabaret.

From start to end, Daddy had the Chingay feel-good vibes, the stage, cast, language and costume were so colourful and flamboyant.

That was how the 50s and 60s defined “entertainment”, before TV boxes (and Ipads) invaded our living rooms. We followed Simon as he relates his love story with Nancy, growing together with Great World Cabaret.

Drunken sailors. Sensational Rose, Magician Foo You Or and acrobats from Shandong.
Our little girl was chucking away. She really enjoyed Bo Bo Cha Cha at the Carabet!

Parents need not worry as there is no nudity on stage, and Daddy quietly laments that it is thus not authentic enough.

Heng ah (Lucky us), Valentiko (no typo error) aka Mark Lee was speaking in Hokkien and Mandarin during his standup. We adults have to think dirty a bit, then Mark’s Hokkien jokes will become hilarious. Yes, crude too haha.

(Fortunately, Boon Xin is still too young to understand the jokes, otherwise Daddy will have problem explaning!)

Mark Lee is in his element when he converse in Hokkien. This guy can host, act and he dazzles on stage. This Ah Beng can really Talk Cock do standup comedy. Just listen to him 鸟话 (you can infer as sweet-talk or talk-nonsense) about “calling chicken” and 猫山王’s origin :)

Cannot talk never mind, must know how to whistle. Other notable Headliners will be Hossan, Sebastian and Judee (different performing dates).

Boon Xin found some Mediacorp stars (from Coffeeshop 118).

Great World Cabaret Let’s Go Bo Bo Cha Cha is a collaboration between Resorts World Sentosa and Dream Academy Productions, and will run from 19Feb to 17Mar. Click for show details and Youtube preview. Tickets details at Sistic website.

We will recommend this show for the Grandparents too, let them relive their happening days.
