CNY 2017 @ River Angbao

Was not really looking forward to 初一 because it felt like a normal day to me. Actually it felt worse than a normal day because shops are closed, which means I can’t go out to enjoy the solitude of sitting in a cafe with a hot chocolate.

I did consider going for visiting with my mum (yes, I was that bored), but I thought she had went by the time I woke up. So just when I was about to resign to fate and nua the day off, she came back and I was stuck between going or staying again 😐

There are pros and cons for both. The only incentive of visiting is of course the angbaos, but I will have to deal with the typical questions of “When getting married” and etc. This is probably the age when you hate visitings the most.

I can blog if I stay at home, but spending the day at home will probably make me feel sadder, which is why I had not been at home for the past 4 CNYs. In the end, I did my usual 3 coin spins and it was 3 straight heads, which means to go! And off I went~

As usual, 初一 means 大姨’s house, where everyone would gather. Of course by now, the ‘everyone circle‘ has downsized to mainly the aunts and uncles; the cousins have also reached the age of not going for visiting, like me. So yea, I made my rare appearance and created a big hoo-ha. Positive ones, thankfully.

I think the last time I went for visiting was 2011, so even my little nephew has grown twice the size (that his mum can’t recognise him when I showed her the 2011 picture) and he even have a sweet little sister now!

Little Miss Pouty, but she likes me 😊

First time meeting her but we were having fun with our ‘kiat hong‘ mess already! Haha! Cause cam-whoring brings girls together! 😝 Setting the latest trend with our powdery white lips~

Aiyo~ Tak glam!

Total angbao earning for the day was 50 bucks, but minus off cab fares to and fro, it was only left with $36 😢 At least it kept my day occupied before I was off for River angbao!

Ice-cream to start off first because I was famished and the only stall without queue is this~ Walking around the food booths really felt like I was in a chimney.

Forced shot with my snake friend

Missed the first 财神爷撒黄金 session but we managed to catch the next! Camping for the moment~

This is one of the thing I remember the most about River angbao, cause I remember bringing the golden flakes (used to be flakes, now just tiny strips) home when I was a kid. But I definitely don’t remember aunties opening up umbrellas to catch the “gold“!!! Like seriously?!
 photo IMG_1528_zpsikeevxis.jpg

Had a hard time taking a proper shot with the umbrellas there! Really kiasu! And they really caught a lot of the gold strips, as though they are real gold, leaving none for others! I did not even catch any. But I know 财神爷 won’t let greedy people 发! 😤

Finished touring and it was time for a smoke break! 😛

And then fireworks~!!! A pity the angle was really awful, with the pole there.

Climbed all the way up for this~ I miss my MBS!!! Haha!
