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 🙂
